Outlook

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Daniel P. Amos stated:

"I am pleased with the company’s overall financial results that position us to exceed our original annual adjusted earnings per share objective. At the same time, in both the U.S. and Japan, we are concentrating on investing in and executing on initiatives designed to drive future earned premium growth.

Aflac Japan, our largest earnings contributor, generated strong financial results that were above our expectations for the quarter and the first nine months of the year, primarily reflecting strong investment income and improved benefit ratios. Sales of protection-type first sector and third sector products were down in the first nine months of the year, reflecting reduced sales of our cancer insurance through Japan Post and following a strong 2018 with the launch of our revised cancer insurance product. We continue to expect full-year Aflac Japan third sector and first sector protection sales to be down in the mid-teens, with earned premium growth in the range of 1% to 2%.

Turning to our U.S. operations, we are pleased with the financial performance of Aflac U.S. in the quarter, which is significant because these results also reflect ongoing investment in our platform, distribution and customer experience. While our sales results were less than we expected for the quarter, keep in mind, our production tends to be skewed toward the fourth quarter. We expect full-year Aflac U.S. sales results to be flat to down slightly, with earned premium growth in the 2% range.

Having completed the first nine months of the year, I am pleased with the company’s overall results, which benefited from timing of expenses, favorable investment results and continued strength in pretax profit margins. We believe those results, combined with our outlook for the remainder of 2019, well position Aflac for another year of strong financial performance. We continue to expect increased spending in the fourth quarter in support of initiatives designed to drive future growth. We are upwardly revising our 2019 adjusted earnings per diluted share outlook from a range of $4.10 to $4.30 to a higher range of $4.35 to $4.45, assuming the 2018 weighted average of ¥110.39 yen to the dollar."
