10:18 EDTHIGHartford unit terminates reinsurance agreement with White River
Hartford Life and Annuity Insurance disclosed that it terminated its reinsurance agreement with White River Life Reinsurance. As a result, the company expects to recognize a gain of approximately $215M resulting from the termination of derivatives associated with the reinsurance transaction. In addition, the company expects to receive a capital contribution of approximately $1B from its ultimate parent, The Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), in support of this transaction as the economics related to HLAI's business are no longer reinsured to WRR. This capital contribution will be funded by WRR paying off the $655 surplus note and returning approximately $345 in capital to The Hartford. Effective March 3, The Hartford made Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company the single nationwide underwriting company for its Group Benefits business by capitalizing HLA to support the Group Benefits business and separating it from the legal entities that support The Hartford's Talcott Resolution operating segment. In connection with this effort, HLAI and the company paid a dividend of $800M to HLA, and all of the issued and outstanding equity of the company was distributed from HLA to Hartford Life.

17:47 EDTHIGHartford Financial extends pension buy-out to 13,500 vested participants
Hartford Financial disclosed in a regulatory filing that In September 2014, the company extended a limited time voluntary lump sum offer to approximately 13,500 vested participants in the U.S. qualified defined benefit pension plan who had separated from service, but who had not yet commenced annuity benefits. These participants have until November 2014 to elect to receive their benefit in a lump-sum payment, rather than as an annuity. The company will make the payments in December 2014 using assets from the U.S. qualified defined benefit pension plan. The funded status of the plan is not expected to be adversely impacted by this program. Depending on the acceptance rate of participants, the company may recognize a settlement charge to net income in Q414. If the acceptance rate is high enough to trigger a settlement charge, the likely high end of the range for a charge is approximately $140 after tax. The charge would be offset by a corresponding increase in accumulated other comprehensive income and therefore not impact total stockholders’ equity.
