MINNEAPOLIS -- January 31, 2013

Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz Life) today announced
that it has been named one of America’s Top Workplaces based on employee
feedback about career development opportunities offered to Allianz Life
employees by the company. Allianz Life was ranked #53 nationwide among 872
companies making it part of the inaugural “National Top 150” list. The list
was organized by WorkplaceDynamics, an employee survey company, and compared
companies’ survey results from companies with more than 1,000 employees that
participated in regional top workplaces programs throughout the country.

“We are honored by this recognition and thank our employees for making Allianz
Life one of the top places to work in not only the Twin Cities, but also the
entire United States,” said Allianz Life President and CEO Walter White. “As
we strive to help Americans achieve their financial and retirement goals, it’s
gratifying to know that we’re also helping our employees fulfill their
professional aspirations.”

The National Top Workplaces list recognizes the most progressive companies
based on employee opinions about company leadership, communication, career
opportunities, workplace environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The
winning companies were determined solely by feedback gathered through a
confidential employee survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics,
LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30
leading regional newspapers. Allianz Life participated in the Minneapolis Star
Tribune’s Top Workplaces 2012 program.

The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The
survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with high
levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for
their future; execute well; and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.

In addition to joining the WorkplaceDynamics “National Top 150” list, Allianz
Life was recently named to FORTUNE Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For”
list for the second straight year, making it the only Twin Cities-based
company on the 2013 list. Details about the National Top Workplaces, a full
list of the Top 150 companies, the survey methodology, and factors that drive
organizational health are available at
