Aflac Shareholders Have Their 'Say-on-Pay,'
Date:5/6/2008

Overwhelmingly Endorse Performance-Based Compensation

COLUMBUS, Ga., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- In a historic vote yesterday, the shareholders of Aflac Incorporated overwhelmingly approved the company's pay-for-performance compensation policies and procedures. 93% of votes were cast in favor with only 2.5% against Aflac's compensation practices in a vote commonly referred to as "Say-on-Pay."

In March 2008, Aflac Incorporated's board of directors released the proxy statement language that formally invited shareholders to vote on the company's performance-based compensation policies. This action marked the first time shareholders were empowered to vote on executive compensation for an American public company.

"At Aflac we have long believed in performance-based compensation for all of our employees," said Daniel P. Amos, Aflac Chairman and CEO. "I am proud that Aflac's long history of transparency and strong shareholder returns are appreciated by our owners."

From August 1990, when Mr. Amos became CEO of Aflac Incorporated, through the end of 2007, the company's total return to shareholders, including reinvested cash dividends, has exceeded 3,867%, compared with 694% for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 583% for the S&P 500. During the same period, the company's market value has grown from $1.2 billion to more than $30 billion, with total revenues growing from $2.7 billion in 1990 to $15.4 billion in 2007.
