aflac inc (AFL) Key Developments

AFLAC Inc. Declares Second Quarter Cash Dividend, Payable on June 1, 2015

AFLAC Inc. announced that its board of directors declared the second quarter cash dividend. The second quarter dividend of $0.39 per share is payable on June 1, 2015, to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 20, 2015.

Aflac Incorporated Consolidated Unaudited Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter and Full Year of 2015

Aflac Incorporated announced consolidated unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of $5,226 million against $5,640 million a year ago, reflecting the weaker yen/dollar exchange rate. Earnings before income taxes was $1,013 million against $1,104 million a year ago. Net earnings were $663 million against $732 million a year ago. Net earnings per diluted share was $1.51 against $1.60 a year ago. Operating earnings were $678 million against $774 million a year ago. Operating earnings per diluted share was $1.54 against $1.69 a year ago. The annualized return on average shareholders' equity was 19.8% or 21.5%, excluding the impact of the yen. The company announced that objective for 2015 is to increase operating earnings per diluted share 2% to 7% on a currency neutral basis. If the yen averages 120 to 125 to the dollar for the second quarter, the company would expects earnings in the second quarter to be approximately $1.46 to $1.57 per diluted share. Using that same exchange rate assumption, the company would expects full-year reported operating earnings to be about $5.74 to $6.15 per diluted share.
