Hannover Re surpasses own profit expectation for 2016 financial year

Hannover, 7 February 2017: Based on provisional figures, Hannover Re will
generate Group net income of around EUR 1.17 billion (previous year: EUR
1.15 billion) for the 2016 financial year. The company will thus clearly
surpass its profit target of at least EUR 950 million. The principal driver
is a further improvement in the underwriting result in property and
casualty reinsurance. In addition, the tax rate for 2016 decreased to a
normalised level because higher tax expenditure provisionally recognised in
the previous year did not recur. The operating profit (EBIT) for 2016
amounts to roughly EUR 1.69 billion (EUR 1.76 billion). Gross premium
contracted as expected to EUR 16.4 billion (EUR 17.1 billion).

The present annual results are still subject to certification by the
auditors and approval by the Supervisory Board.

Hannover Re will publish detailed information on the 2016 annual financial
year on 9 March 2017.
