Metlife Swings to $954 Billion Q3 Loss on Charges; Adjusted Net Beats, but Revenue Misses (MET)

Insurance giant Metlife Inc. ( MET ) late Wednesday said it swung to a massive third quarter loss, hurt by special charges, although its adjusted profit beat expectations.

The New York-based company reported a third quarter net loss of $954 million, or -92 cents per share, compared with a profit of $3.46 billion, or $3.21 per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding a $1.6 billion impairment charge related to a markdown of its annuity business, MET's adjusted operating profit was $1.32 per share.

Operating revenue was mostly flat from last year at $16.61 billion.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a smaller profit of $1.28 per share, albeit on significantly higher revenue of $17.1 billion.

Metlife shares were unchanged in premarket trading Thursday.
