Jim Sutcliffe, Chief Executive, commented:"Underlying business performance during the first half, driven principally by
high quality investment management, resulted in strong net client cash flows and
growth in funds under management - the key driver of profitability. The Skandia
synergy and development targets are on track. Group earnings, however, have been
muted by the strengthening of the Sterling against the Rand and the US Dollar,
and the provisions following the completion of the actuarial review in the USA.
Our strong capital position and powerful set of international businesses will
allow us to grow even if economic conditions continue to be turbulent."

 *  For long-term and general insurance business, adjusted operating profit is
based on a long-term investment return, includes investment returns on life
funds' investments in Group equity and debt instruments, and is stated net of
income tax attributable to policyholder returns. For all businesses, adjusted
operating profit excludes goodwill impairment, the impact of acquisition
accounting, the impact of closure of unclaimed shares trusts, profit / (loss) on
disposal of subsidiaries, associated undertakings and strategic investments and
dividends declared to holders of perpetual preferred callable securities.

    Adjusted operating earnings per ordinary share is calculated on the same
basis as adjusted operating profit. It is stated after tax attributable to
adjusted operating profit and minority interests. It excludes income
attributable to Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) trusts of listed subsidiaries.
The calculation of the adjusted weighted average number of shares includes own
shares held in policyholders' funds and BEE trusts.

on 18 October 2007, as determined by the Company, and will be announced on 19
