porate-owned Life Insurance (COLI) The principal products of the COLI business are permanent insurance contracts sold to corporations to provide coverage on the lives of certain employees for the purpose of financing employer-paid future benefit obligations. Permanent life insurance provides coverage that, when adequately funded, does not expire after a term of years. The contracts are primarily non-participating universal life policies. Individual Life Insurance and Annuity and Retirement Benefits Businesses This business includes the sale of the individual life insurance and annuity business, and the sale of the retirement benefits business. Run-off Settlement Annuity Business The company’s settlement annuity business is a closed, run-off block of single premium annuity contracts. These contracts are primarily liability settlements with approximately 23% of the liabilities associated with payments that are guaranteed and not contingent on survivorship. For contracts that involve non-guaranteed payments, such payments are contingent on the survival of one or more parties involved in the settlement. Strategy The company’s strategy is to ‘Go Deep’, ‘Go Global’, and ‘Go Individual’ with a differentiated set of medical, dental, disability, life and accident insurance and related products and services offered by its subsidiaries. Regulation The expansion of the company’s operations into foreign countries increases its exposure to certain U.S. laws, such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977.

The company’s operations in countries outside the United States are subject to local regulations in the locations in which its subsidiaries conduct business; in some cases, are subject to regulations in the locations of customers; and in all cases, are subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977.
