NEW YORK, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --ING U.S., Inc. (ING U.S.) today
announced the pricing of its initial public offering (IPO) of approximately
65.2 million shares of common stock at a price to the public of $19.50 per
share. The shares are expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange
(NYSE) on May 2, 2013 under the symbol "VOYA." ING U.S. has announced that it
will rebrand to Voya Financial beginning in 2014. Closing of the offering is
expected to occur on May 7, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.
