The company continues     toexpect to achieve $250 to $300 million of premium increases when fully     implemented.   oIn September 2013, the company announced that it began filing for LTC     premium rate increases on certain Privileged Choice® and Classic Select®     policies sold between 2003 and 2012.As of June 30, 2014, 18 states have     approved these rate increases.  Life Insurance  Life insurance net operating income was $39 million, compared with $21 million in the prior quarter and $27 million in the prior year. Mortality experience improved versus the prior quarter. Results compared to the prior year benefitted from slower reserve growth resulting from a correction to reserves and unlocking of mortality and interest assumptions which were completed in the third quarter of 2013. In addition, investment spread and mortality improved modestly versus the prior year.  Sales of $26 million increased versus the prior quarter and prior year. The company is transitioning to a broader set of competitive permanent product offerings, including indexed universal life and linked benefit products, and growth in sales on these products is expected to continue through the remainder of 2014. Linked benefit product deposits were $42 million in the quarter, up from $25 million in the prior quarter and in the prior year.  Long Term Care Insurance  Long term care insurance net operating income was $6 million, compared with $46 million in the prior quarter and $26 million in the prior year. Results benefitted from premium increases and reduced benefits of $3 million versus the prior quarter and $34 million versus the prior year related to the premium increases approved and implemented to date. Benefits and other changes in policy reserves increased $46 million after-tax versus the prior quarter and $47 million after-tax versus the prior year. Excluding the impact from the premium increases approved and implemented to date, benefits and other changes in policy reserves^2 increased $45 million after-tax versus the prior quarter primarily from higher incurred losses resulting from higher severity on new and existing claims and increased $66 million after-tax versus the prior year primarily from higher severity and frequency on new and existing claims. As a result of recentexperience, and in connection with its regular review of claims reserve assumptions for its long term care insurance products, the company is conducting a comprehensive review of the adequacy of its claim reserves. The company intends to complete this review before the release of financial results for the third quarter of 2014. The company continues to believe that the existing assumptions and methodology provide the most reliable best estimate. However, given the review underway, that will consider both long-term and recent experience, the company will likely change some of its assumptions, which could increase its long term care insurance claim reserves, and any increase may or may not be material.  Individual LTC sales of $24 million were higher than the prior quarter and lower than the prior year. The company is continuing to invest in distribution and marketing to increase LTC sales over time and expects to begin seeing some impact from these actions during the second half of the year. The company launched its Privileged Choice Flex 3.0 product in July 2014 in 42 states which gives millions more Americans the flexibility to choose the right fit for their long term care needs, combined with the simplicity of prepackaged benefits.  Fixed Annuities  Fixed annuities net operating income was $24 million, compared with $27 million in the prior quarter and $26 million in the prior year. Results compared to the prior quarter and prior year included unfavorable mortality that was partially offset by a favorable adjustment related to guarantee funds. Investment income from bond calls was down versus prior year, but was partially offset by the net impact of higher assets under management versus the prior year. Sales in the quarter totaled $429 million, down sequentially impacted by the decline in interest rates during the current quarter.  U.S. Life Companies Capital  The consolidated risk-based capital (RBC) ratio is estimated to be approximately 490 percent^4, up from 480 percent at the end of the first quarter of 2014 and the consolidated U.S. life insurance companies unassigned surplus is estimated to be approximately $560 million^4, up from approximately $440 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. During the quarter, the company completed a life insurance reinsurance transaction generating approximately $90 million of unassigned surplus.  Global Mortgage Insurance Division  Global Mortgage Insurance Division had net operating income of $136 million, compared with net operating income of $132 million in the prior quarter and $102 million a year ago.

Results in the quarter reflected an $11 million     decrease in net operating income versus the prior quarter and prior year     as a result of the IPO of 33.8 percent of the Australia MI business which     was completed on May 21, 2014. Foreign exchange had an unfavorable impact     of $11 million versus the prior year. The loss ratio in Canada was 12     percent and the loss ratio in Australia was 23 percent for the quarter.   oIn Canada, flow new insurance written (NIW) was up 72 percent^5     sequentially and up 13 percent^5 year over year.

In Australia, flow NIW was     down three percent^5 sequentially and flat^5 year over year.   oThe Canadian and Australian businesses continue to maintain sound capital     positions.   oDividends of $42 million were paid to the holding company through the     first half of 2014.  Canada Mortgage Insurance  Canada reported net operating income of $47 million versus $41 million in the prior quarter and $43 million in the prior year. The loss ratio in the quarter was 12 percent, down eight points from the prior quarter from seasonally lower new delinquencies, net of cures, and down 13 points from the prior year reflecting the strong credit quality of recent books and the overall stable economic environment. Earnings were impacted by unfavorable foreign exchange of $4 million versus the prior year. Results included more favorable tax benefits versus the prior quarter and prior year. Flow NIW was up 72 percent^5sequentially primarily from normal seasonal variation and the impact of the severe winter season in the first quarter of 2014 and up 13 percent^5 year over year from increased market penetration. In addition, the company completed several bulk transactions in the quarter, consisting of low loan-to-value prime loans, of approximately $7.5 billion reflecting its selective participation in this market. After consultations with the business's regulator, The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), the business established its operating holding target at 220 percent minimum capital test (MCT), pending the development of a new regulatory capital test for mortgage insurers. At quarter end, the Canada mortgage insurance business had a MCT ratio of 230 percent^4, in excess of the targeted level.  Australia Mortgage Insurance  Australia reported net operating income of $57 million versus $62 million in the prior quarter and $55 million in the prior year.

The loss ratio in the quarter was 23 percent, up six points sequentially from seasonally higher new delinquencies and lower cure rates as home prices moderated during the quarter and down 12 points from the prior year primarily from favorable aging of later stage delinquencies. Earnings were impacted by more favorable tax benefits of $11 million compared to the prior quarter and $9 million compared to the prior year as a result of the IPO.

Other Countries Mortgage Insurance  Other Countries had a net operating loss of $7 million, compared to net operating losses of $4 million in the prior quarter and $9 million in the prior year as the business experienced higher losses in the current quarter.  U.S. Mortgage Insurance Segment  Key Points    oU.S. MI net operating income was $39 million, compared with $33 million in     the prior quarter and $13 million in the prior year. Results in the prior     quarter included $6 million of unfavorable tax adjustments.

Total flow delinquencies decreased six percent sequentially and 26 percent versus the prior year. New flow delinquencies decreased approximately 13 percent from the prior quarter and decreased approximately 19 percent from the prior year, reflecting the continued burn through of delinquencies from the 2005 to 2008 book years. The flow average reserve per delinquency was $30,000, down slightly from the prior quarter.  Total losses were in line with the prior quarter as lower new delinquency development was offset by less favorable net cures and aging of existing delinquencies. Loss development within the quarter was in line with the modest loss reserve strengthening completed in the first quarter of 2014.Loss mitigation savings were $102 million in the quarter, down $12 million from the prior quarter.  Flow NIW of $6.1 billion increased 56 percent from the prior quarter reflecting normal seasonal variation in the purchase market and the impact of the severe winter season in the first quarter of 2014 and decreased three percent versus the prior year primarily from a smaller refinance origination market. Overall private mortgage insurance market penetration was up one point compared with the prior quarter and up approximately four points year over year as the originations market shifted from refinances to a purchase market. The company's estimate of market share at the end of the quarter is approximately 14 percent. Flow persistency was 83 percent. In addition, the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) accounted for about $0.4 billion in the quarter of insurance that is treated as a modification of the coverage on existing insurance in force rather than NIW, bringing the total risk-in-force under the HARP program to $4.9 billion.  The combined U.S. MI statutory risk-to-capital ratio is estimated at 14.6:1^4 at the end of the second quarter with the risk-to-capital ratio for GMICO estimated at 14.0:1^4, reflecting a contribution to GMICO in the quarter of $300 million that was being held at Genworth Mortgage Holdings, LLC.  On July 10, 2014, the draft Private Mortgage Insurance Eligibility Requirements were released by the government sponsored enterprises (GSEs). The company intends to meet the additional capital requirements for U.S. MI set forthin the draft guidelineson or before the anticipated effective date of June 30, 2015, depending on the availability of the capital and reinsurance markets andthe performance of its businessesand subject to noother unforeseen developments. The company will utilize the two-year transition period as approved by the Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA) and GSEs if it does not comply by the anticipated effective date. The company and its U.S. MI business are confident that they are well-positioned to meet the draft version of these guidelines within the prescribed transition period and fully expect the U.S. MI business to maintain its strong presence in the private mortgage insurance market.  Based on the company's current views of the housing market, expected U.S. MI earnings and capital generation, anticipated prepayment of its in-force portfolio in the ordinary course, the amount and loan characteristics of new U.S. MI business anticipated to be written and the $300 million contributed to GMICO in the second quarter of 2014, the company's preliminary estimate of the additional capital required to be fully compliant assuming an effective date of June 30, 2015 will be between $450 to $550 million and will decrease to less than $175 million by December 31, 2016. The company has a variety of capital resources that could be utilized to satisfy capital requirements, and initially intends to utilize reinsurance transactions, and if needed, cash available at the holding company, which includes the proceeds from the completed Australian IPO, to fund them. Other potential sources include, but are not limited to, continued earnings from the business, available deferred tax assets and proceeds from the issuance of securities at Genworth Financial or Genworth Holdings. After the guidelines become final, the company will provide more details around its plans to comply with the Private Mortgage Insurance Eligibility Requirements including sources and timing of invested capital.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures  This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures entitled "net operating income (loss)" and "operating earnings per share." Operating earnings per share is derived from net operating income (loss). The chief operating decision maker evaluates segment performance and allocates resources on the basis of net operating income (loss). The company defines net operating income (loss) as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effects of income attributable to noncontrolling interests, net investment gains (losses), goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions and infrequent or unusual non-operating items. Gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are defined as gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of non-recourse funding obligations, early termination fees for other financing restructuring and/or resulting gains (losses) on reinsurance restructuring for certain blocks of business. The company excludes net investment gains (losses) and infrequent or unusual non-operating items because the company does not consider them to be related to the operating performance of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities. A component of the company's net investment gains (losses) is the result of impairments, the size and timing of which can vary significantly depending on market credit cycles. In addition, the size and timing of other investment gains (losses) can be subject to the company's discretion and are influenced by market opportunities, as well as asset-liability matching considerations. Goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt and gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are also excluded from net operating income (loss) because, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. Other non-operating items are also excluded from net operating income (loss) if, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends.  The following transaction was excluded from net operating income (loss) for the periods presented as it related to the loss on the early extinguishment of debt. In the second quarter of 2014, the company paid an early redemption payment of approximately $2 million, net of taxes and portion attributable to noncontrolling interests, related to the early redemption of Genworth MI Canada Inc.'s notes that were scheduled to mature in 2015.  There were no infrequent or unusual items excluded from net operating income (loss) during the periods presented other than a $13 million, net of taxes, expense recorded in the second quarter of 2013 related to restructuring costs.  While some of these items may be significant components of net income (loss) available to Genworth'scommon stockholders in accordance with GAAP, the company believes that net operating income (loss) and measures that are derived from or incorporate net operating income (loss), including net operating income (loss) per common share on a basic and diluted basis, are appropriate measures that are useful to investors because they identify the income (loss) attributable to the ongoing operations of the business. Management also uses net operating income (loss) as a basis for determining awards and compensation for senior management and to evaluate performance on a basis comparable to that used by analysts. However, the items excluded from net operating income (loss) have occurred in the past and could, and in some cases will, recur in the future. Net operating income (loss) and net operating income (loss) per common share on a basic and diluted basis are not substitutes for net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders or net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders per common share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of net operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.  The tables at the end of this press release reflect net operating income (loss) as determined in accordance with accounting guidance related to segment reporting, and a reconciliation of net operating income (loss) of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities to net income available to Genworth's common stockholders for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, as well as for the three months ended March 31, 2014.  Adjustments to reconcile net income attributable to Genworth's common stockholders and net operating income assume a 35 percent tax rate and are net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests. Net investment gains (losses) are also adjusted for deferred acquisition costs and other intangible amortization and certain benefit reserves.  This press release also includes non-GAAP financial measures entitled "net income before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business" and "net operating income before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business." The company defines net income before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business and net operating income before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business as net income or net operating income, as applicable, adjusted for net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business but before noncontrolling interests in the Canada MI business. These measures are presented as they are comparable to net income and net operating income for the second quarter of 2013. However, net income before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business and net operating income before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MIbusiness are notsubstitutes for net incomeand net operating income determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net income before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business and net operating income before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business to net income and net operating income is included in a table at the end of this press release.  This press release includes a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact from premium increases approved and implemented to date, net of taxes,from benefits and other changes in policy reserves, net of taxes, for the long term care insurance business. Management believes that analysis of benefits and other changes in policy reserves excluding the impact from the premium increases approved and implemented to date, net of taxes,enhances understanding of the underlying claims experience in the current period. However, benefits and other changes in policy reserves excluding the impact from the premium increases approved and implemented to date, net of taxes,is not a substitute for GAAP benefits and other changes in policy reserves, net of taxes, determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of benefits and other changes in policy reserves excluding the impact from the premium increases approved and implemented to date, net of taxes,to reported GAAP benefits and other changes in policy reserves, net of taxes,is included in a table at the end of this press release.  This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure entitled "core yield" as a measure of investment yield. The company defines core yield as the investment yield adjusted for those items that are not recurring in nature. Management believes that analysis of core yield enhances understanding of the investment yield of the company. However, core yieldis nota substitute for investment yield determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of core yield may differ from the definitions used by other companies. A reconciliation of core yield to reported GAAP yield is included in a table at the end of this press release.  Definition of Selected Operating Performance Measures  The company reports selected operating performance measures including "sales" and "insurance in force" or "risk in force" which are commonly used in the insurance industry as measures of operating performance.  Management regularly monitors and reports sales metrics as a measure of volume of new and renewal business generated in a period. Sales refer to: (1) annualized first-year premiums for term life and long term care insurance products; (2) annualized first-year deposits plus five percent of excess deposits for universal and term universal life insurance products; (3) 10 percent of premium deposits for linked-benefits products; (4) new and additional premiums/deposits for fixed annuities; (5) new insurance written for mortgage insurance; and (6) net premiums written for the lifestyle protection insurance business. Sales do not include renewal premiums on policies or contracts written during prior periods. The company considers annualized first-year premiums/deposits, premium equivalents, new premiums/deposits, new insurance written, and net premiums written to be a measure of the company's operating performance because they represent a measure of new sales of insurance policies or contracts during a specified period, rather than a measure of the company's revenues or profitability during that period.  Management regularly monitors and reports insurance in force and risk in force. Insurance in force for the life, international mortgage and U.S. mortgage insurance businesses is a measure of the aggregate face value of outstanding insurance policies as of the respective reporting date. For risk in force in the international mortgage insurance business, the company has computed an "effective" risk in force amount, which recognizes that the loss on any particular loan will be reduced by the net proceeds received upon sale of the property. Effective risk in force has been calculated by applying to insurance in force a factor of 35 percent that represents the highest expected average per-claim payment for any one underwriting year over the life of the company's businesses in Canada and Australia. Risk in force for the U.S. mortgage insurance business is the obligation that is limited under contractual terms to the amounts less than 100 percent of the mortgage loan value.The company considers insurance in force and risk in force to be measures of the company's operating performance because they represent measures of the size of the business at a specific date which will generate revenues and profits in a future period, rather than measures of the company's revenues or profitability during that period.  This press release also includes information related to loss mitigation activities for the U.S. mortgage insurance business. The company defines loss mitigation activities as rescissions, cancellations, borrower loan modifications, repayment plans, lender- and borrower-titled presales, claims administration and other loan workouts. Estimated savings related to rescissions are the reduction in carried loss reserves, net of premium refunds and reinstatement of prior rescissions. Estimated savings related to loan modifications and other cure related loss mitigation actions represent the reduction in carried loss reserves. Estimated savings related to claims mitigation activities represent amounts deducted or "curtailed" from claims due to acts or omissions by the insured or the servicer with respect to the servicing of an insured loan that is not in compliance with obligations under the company's master policy. For non-cure related actions, including presales, the estimated savings represent the difference between the full claim obligation and the actual amount paid. Loans subject to the company's loss mitigation actions, the results of which have been included in the company's reported estimated loss mitigation savings, are subject to re-default and may result in a potential claim in future periods, as well as potential future loss mitigation savings depending on the resolution of the re-defaulted loan. The company believes that this information helps to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the U.S. mortgage insurance business as loss mitigation activities specifically impact current and future loss reserves and level of claim payments.  Management also regularly monitors and reports a loss ratio for the company's businesses. For the long term care insurance business, the loss ratio is the ratio of benefits and other changes in reserves less tabular interest on reserves less loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. For the mortgage and lifestyle protection insurance businesses, the loss ratio is the ratio of incurred losses and loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. The company considers the loss ratio to be a measure of underwriting performance in these businesses and helps to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the businesses.  An assumed tax rate of 35 percent is utilized in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance and investment results.  These operating performance measures enable the company to compare its operating performance across periods without regard to revenues or profitability related to policies or contracts sold in prior periods or from investments or other sources.
