Aflac Incorporated Announces Fourth Quarter Results
Date:1/30/2008

he weaker yen/dollar exchange rate, compared with 2006. Total revenues were $15.4 billion, an increase of 5.3% over 2006. Net earnings were $1.6 billion, or $3.31 per diluted share, compared with $1.5 billion, or $2.95 per share, in 2006. Full-year net earnings were impacted by lower realized investment gains in 2007, compared with 2006. Realized investment gains were $19 million in 2007, or $.04 per diluted share, compared with $51 million, or $.10 per share, in 2006. The impact of SFAS 133 was immaterial for both 2007 and 2006.

Operating earnings for the year were $1.6 billion, or $3.27 per diluted share, compared with $1.4 billion, or $2.85 per share, in 2006. Excluding the negative impact of $.02 per share from the weaker yen, operating earnings per diluted share rose 15.4% for the year. That result was in line with our 2007 objective of a 15% to 16% increase in operating earnings per diluted share before the impact of currency translation.

During the fourth quarter, we acquired 2.0 million shares of our stock, bringing the total number of shares purchased in 2007 to 11.1 million.

AFLAC JAPAN

Aflac Japan premium income in yen rose 4.0% in the fourth quarter. Net investment income increased 4.6%. Investment income growth in yen terms was lowered somewhat by the stronger yen/dollar exchange rate because approximately 38% of Aflac Japan's fourth quarter investment income was dollar-denominated. Total revenues were up 4.2%. Despite the previously mentioned adjustment to Aflac Japan benefit reserves, the benefit ratio improved over a year ago. As a result, the pretax operating profit margin expanded from 14.7% to 15.0%. Pretax operating earnings in yen increased 5.8%. For the year, premium income in yen increased 4.3%, and net investment income rose 8.0%. Total revenues were up 4.9%, and pretax operating earnings grew 11.8%.

The average yen/dollar exchange rate in the fourth quarter of 2007 was 113.24, or 4.1% stronger than the aver
