RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW) today announced that it is still in the process of completing its annual review of long term care insurance active life margins. The scope of this review includes GAAP loss recognition and statutory cash flow testing.
"We are focused on completing our active life margin review, and it is imperative that we are thoughtful and thorough in our analysis. While our original intent was to communicate results in December, the review is taking longer than previously anticipated," said Tom McInerney, President and CEO. "To that end, we continue our work and are receiving input from actuarial advisors in our evaluation of key margin assumptions and methodologies. We remain committed to providing transparent and timely communications once the review is complete."
Given progress to date, the company anticipates communicating results of the active life margin review after completion of a peer review by an independent third party in 2015, on or before the company's fourth quarter earnings conference call.
