Forward-Looking Statements

This statement may contain certain "forward-looking statements" 
with respect to certain of Prudential's plans and its current 
goals and expectations relating to its future financial condition,
performance, results, strategy and objectives. Statements 
containing the words "believes", "intends", "expects", "plans",
"seeks" and "anticipates", and words of similar meaning, are 
forward-looking. By their nature, all forward-looking statements
involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events
and circumstances which are beyond Prudential's control including
among other things, UK domestic and global economic and business
conditions, market related risks such as fluctuations in interest
rates and exchange rates, and the performance of financial markets
generally; the policies and actions of regulatory authorities,
the impact of competition, inflation, and deflation; experience 
in particular with regard to mortality and morbidity trends, 
lapse rates and policy renewal rates; the timing, impact and 
other uncertainties of future acquisitions or combinations
within relevant industries; and the impact of changes in capital,
solvency or accounting standards, and tax and other legislation 
and regulations in the jurisdictions in which Prudential and its 
affiliates operate. This may for example result in changes to 
assumptions used for determining results of operations or 
re-estimations of reserves for future policy benefits. As a
result, Prudential's actual future financial condition, performance
and results may differ materially from the plans, goals, and 
expectations set forth in Prudential's forward-looking statements. 
Prudential undertakes no obligation to update the forward-looking 
statements contained in this statement or any other
forward-looking statements it may make.
