Consolidated net premiums decreased 4 percent and totaled \\$2.1 billion this quarter, reflecting adverse foreign currency effects of approximately \\$147 million and a \\$114 million reduction associated with the previously announced fourth-quarter 2014 U.S. retrocession agreement. Excluding those effects, premiums increased 8 percent over the prior-year quarter. Investment income decreased 13 percent from \\$447.1 million to \\$389.6 million this period, primarily attributable to a \\$76.4 million decrease in the fair value of options contracts that are included in funds withheld at interest on the consolidated balance sheet and support the crediting rates for equity-indexed annuities. Excluding spread-based businesses and the value of associated derivatives, investment income was even with year-ago levels.

The average investment yield was 4.66 percent, 14 basis points below the third quarter of 2014, and 22 basis points lower than the second-quarter yield, with both of those comparable yields benefiting from investment prepayments.

For the first nine months of 2015, net adverse foreign currency fluctuations lowered operating income by approximately \\$0.35 per diluted share and the non-extension of the Active Financing Exception (AFE) further reduced operating income per share by \\$0.35. Aside from those items, underlying operating results were modestly favorable compared with the prior-year period.

The effective tax rate on operating income was 38.6 percent this quarter, well above the ongoing expected range of 33 percent to 34 percent, and the comparable prior-year rate of 31.9 percent. Although an extension is expected in the fourth quarter of 2015, Congress has not yet extended the AFE legislation, and as a result, the company increased its tax provision by \\$10.1 million in the third quarter, an adverse effect of \\$0.15 per diluted share. Excluding this increase, the effective tax rate was 33.8 percent in the third quarter. Through the first nine months of 2015, the AFE-related increase to the tax provision totaled \\$23.7 million, or \\$0.35 per share, which would be reversed upon extension of the AFE.

Greig Woodring, president and chief executive officer, commented, Similar to the second quarter, the results were negatively affected by a higher effective tax rate and foreign currency weakness that together provided a considerable headwind to our quarterly and year-to-date results, although we still expect a reversal of AFE-related tax provisions in this years fourth quarter. Beyond these headwinds, year-to-date operating EPS were modestly improved over 2014 levels, as continued strong results in our GFS and international operations, ongoing in-force transactions, and effective capital management partially mitigated unusually high claims in our U.S. individual mortality business.

In the third quarter, GFS results were strong across all geographies, Canada performed well due to favorable mortality experience, and further, our EMEA and Asian operations produced solid results but faced tough comparisons with unusually strong year-ago results. The U.S. individual mortality business had another challenging quarter, driven primarily by large claims (those over \\$1 million) from older issue-age policies. This continues a trend of higher volatility in this business more recently and adverse experience on the older issue-age block over time.

Our ongoing analysis suggests a continuing negative effect from the older issue-age block and some degree of diminished future returns. However, we view this situation as manageable given that blocks relative size and declining influence, and we expect some rebound from this years unusually volatile results. Furthermore, we are encouraged by the ongoing strength from other parts of our business, a growing influence from in-force transactions, and effective capital management actions. We remain optimistic about our business overall given its strong global position and ample opportunities to put our client-centric solutions to work.

In the third quarter, we continued to implement our capital management strategy, reflecting a continuation of our share repurchase activity and the announcement of a meaningful in-force block transaction. Thus, we have had the opportunity to deploy a considerable amount of excess capital throughout the year, continuing the trend from 2014. At the end of the quarter, we had capacity under our current share repurchase authorization of approximately \\$126 million, and our deployable, excess capital position is approximately \\$700 million. Ending book value per share this quarter was \\$94.92 including AOCI, and \\$81.14 excluding AOCI, a 9 percent increase over that of a year ago on a total returns basis.

SEGMENT RESULTS

U.S. and Latin America

Traditional

The U.S. and Latin America Traditional segment reported pre-tax operating income of \\$54.7 million, a 31 percent decrease from last years third-quarter total of \\$78.9 million. Both periods reflected high claims flow, with the current-period mortality experience being unusually poor and driven by large policies issued to those over 70 years of age. Traditional net premiums decreased 2 percent from last years second quarter to \\$1,150.9 million, including the retrocession agreement effective in last years fourth quarter, and increased 8 percent excluding that agreement. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$55.7 million for the quarter, compared with \\$77.8 million in last years third quarter.

Non-Traditional

The Asset-Intensive business reported pre-tax operating income of \\$55.2 million compared with \\$58.0 million last year. Results continue to outpace expectations and benefited from favorable net interest rate spread performance on fixed annuities, as well as strong contributions from this segments annuity block acquisitions. The prior-year quarter benefited from prepayment fees of \\$8.4 million associated with commercial mortgage loans. Pre-tax net income decreased to \\$24.2 million from \\$63.8 million a year ago, attributable to changes in the fair value of various embedded derivatives.

The Financial Reinsurance business reported pre-tax operating income of \\$12.1 million, a decrease from the \\$13.8 million posted in last years third quarter. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$12.1 million in the current period compared with \\$13.7 million in the prior-year quarter. This business is driven by fees earned on financial reinsurance transactions, and quarterly earnings can vary depending on the size and timing of transactions.

Canada

Traditional

The Canada Traditional business reported pre-tax operating income of \\$37.8 million this quarter, a 52 percent increase over \\$24.9 million the year before, overcoming the significantly negative effect of a weaker Canadian currency. Individual mortality claims experience continued to improve and was better than expected in the third quarter. Reported net premiums decreased 17 percent to \\$200.0 million, primarily due to the significantly weaker Canadian dollar. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$34.1 million compared with \\$24.2 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Non-Traditional

The Canada Non-Traditional business segment, which consists of longevity and fee-based transactions, posted pre-tax operating income and pre-tax net income of \\$3.3 million this quarter compared with \\$0.9 million in the prior-year quarter.

In total, a relatively weaker Canadian dollar lowered net premiums and pre-tax operating income by approximately \\$42.2 million and \\$8.3 million, respectively, during the quarter. In Canadian dollars, premiums increased 3 percent over the third quarter of 2014.

Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)

Traditional

The EMEA Traditional segment reported pre-tax operating income of \\$15.6 million compared with \\$20.3 million in last years third quarter. Both periods had favorable overall claims experience, with the year-ago period being unusually strong. Net reported premiums decreased 5 percent and totaled \\$276.1 million, compared with \\$291.0 million in the prior-year quarter. Net foreign currency fluctuations had an adverse effect on pre-tax operating income and premiums again this quarter and for the first nine months. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$15.9 million versus \\$21.3 million in the year-ago quarter.

Non-Traditional

The EMEA Non-Traditional segment includes asset-intensive, longevity and fee-based transactions. Pre-tax operating income increased 22 percent to \\$28.8 million from \\$23.7 million a year ago, primarily due to contributions from new longevity transactions and favorable experience on existing longevity and asset-intensive business. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$29.2 million this quarter, compared with \\$23.9 million in last years third quarter.

In total, adverse foreign currency fluctuations reduced net premiums and pre-tax operating income by \\$33.3 million and \\$3.5 million, respectively. EMEA premiums based in local currencies increased 2 percent over the third quarter of 2014.

Asia Pacific

Traditional

Asia Pacifics Traditional business reported pre-tax operating income of \\$13.0 million, compared with a very strong \\$24.6 million in the prior-year quarter. Overall claims experience was better than expected, with most markets performing well, and was especially favorable in the year-ago period. Operations in Australia reported a modest loss for the quarter, versus a modest gain in last years third quarter. Traditional net premiums increased 2 percent to \\$400.3 million, including a significant foreign currency headwind compared with the prior year. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$11.3 million compared with \\$24.3 million in last years third quarter.

Non-Traditional

Asia Pacifics Non-Traditional business includes asset-intensive, fee-based and various other transactions. Pre-tax operating income in this segment increased to \\$6.3 million from \\$2.8 million last year due to the effects of several new treaties and favorable experience on existing treaties in the current period. Pre-tax net income totaled \\$5.4 million this quarter versus a pre-tax net loss of \\$3.9 million in the year-ago period. The prior-year result was driven by investment related losses.

In total, adverse foreign currency fluctuations reduced Asia Pacific net premiums and pre-tax operating income by \\$69.5 million and \\$2.3 million, respectively. Premiums based in local currencies increased 18 percent over the third quarter of 2014.

Corporate and Other

The Corporate and Other segments pre-tax operating losses increased to \\$19.7 million from \\$13.2 million in the third quarter of 2014, mainly attributable to the retention of certain executive costs that were previously allocated to other segments. Pre-tax net losses were \\$50.9 million this quarter, including net investment related losses, and \\$14.2 million a year ago.

Dividend Declaration

The board of directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of \\$0.37, payable December 1 to shareholders of record as of November 10.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

RGA uses a non-GAAP financial measure called operating income as a basis for analyzing financial results. This measure also serves as a basis for establishing target levels and awards under RGAs management incentive programs. Management believes that operating income, on a pre-tax and after-tax basis, better measures the ongoing profitability and underlying trends of the companys continuing operations, primarily because that measure excludes substantially all of the effect of net investment related gains and losses, as well as changes in the fair value of certain embedded derivatives and related deferred acquisition costs. These items can be volatile, primarily due to the credit market and interest rate environment, and are not necessarily indicative of the performance of the companys underlying businesses. Additionally, operating income excludes any net gain or loss from discontinued operations, the cumulative effect of any accounting changes, and other items that management believes are not indicative of the companys ongoing operations. The definition of operating income can vary by company and is not considered a substitute for GAAP net income.

Reconciliations to GAAP net income are provided in the following tables. Additional financial information can be found in the Quarterly Financial Supplement on RGAs Investor Relations website at www.rgare.com in the Quarterly Results tab and in the Featured Report section.

Book value per share before impact of AOCI is a non-GAAP financial measure that management believes is important in evaluating the balance sheet in order to ignore the effects of unrealized amounts primarily associated with mark-to-market adjustments on investments and foreign currency translation.

Operating income per diluted share is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated as operating income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Operating return on equity is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated as operating income divided by average shareholders equity excluding AOCI.
