OUTLOOK

Commenting on the company's fourth quarter and full-year results, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Daniel P. Amos stated: "I am very pleased with our results for 2007. Aflac Japan and Aflac U.S. each achieved their sales objectives and produced strong financial results in 2007, which contributed to a record year in terms of operating earnings. I am especially proud that we achieved our primary financial objective of a 15% to 16% increase in operating earnings per diluted share, before the impact of currency translation. 2007 was the 18th year in which we have increased operating earnings per diluted share by at least 15% before the impact of the yen.

"From a financial perspective Aflac Japan had both a strong fourth quarter and full year. Our top-line growth was in line with our expectations, and as we expected, the benefit ratio continued to improve, resulting in expanded profit margins and strong pretax earnings growth. At the same time, Aflac Japan built sales momentum throughout the year, which we expect to continue in 2008. We look forward to new distribution opportunities through the bank channel and Japan Post, and we believe our product portfolio is well-positioned in the Japanese market. Our sales objective for 2008 is an increase of 3% to 7%.

"Aflac U.S. also performed very well throughout the year. Our U.S. operation generated strong financial results, highlighted by improved operating trends and strong earnings growth. We were again pleased with the sales momentum of Aflac U.S. We believe our sales growth reflects a quality product line and enhanced training to a steadily growing sales force. As we noted, sales in the fourth quarter benefited from the change in our conversion processing practices, and will take away from first-quarter 2008 sales. As a result, we expect Aflac U.S. sales
