Exhibit 99.1
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brighthouse Financial Announces Third Quarter 2017 Results
CHARLOTTE, NC, November 1, 2017 — Brighthouse Financial, Inc. ("Brighthouse Financial") (Nasdaq: BHF) announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. The results are the first quarterly earnings reported by Brighthouse Financial following its separation from MetLife, Inc. (NYSE: MET), which was completed on August 4, 2017. Shares of Brighthouse Financial began trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol “BHF” on August 7, 2017.
Third Quarter Results
The company reported a third quarter 2017 net loss of $943 million, or $7.87 on a per share basis, compared to a net loss of $158 million in the third quarter of 2016. The net loss in the quarter includes a $1,073 million non-cash tax expense triggered prior to separation, recognized by the company's former parent with no impact to the stockholders' equity ("book value") of Brighthouse Financial. The company ended the third quarter 2017 with a book value of $13.8 billion, or $114.93 on a per share basis, and a book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI")*, of $12.5 billion, or $104.01 on a per share basis.

For the third quarter of 2017, the company reported an operating loss* of $676 million, or $5.64 on a per share basis. Excluding the above mentioned non-cash tax expense, operating earnings* for the quarter would have been $397 million, or $3.31 on a per share basis. The quarterly operating results also reflected $103 million of net favorable other notable items, or $0.86 per share, including:
$134 million net favorable impact primarily from the annual actuarial review completed in the third quarter. As a result of the review, the company took several actions, including:
Reduced variable annuity ("VA") lapse floor assumptions for all living benefit guarantee products;
Updated VA withdrawal assumptions for guaranteed minimum withdrawal benefits for life; and
Aligned certain GAAP and statutory modeling assumptions.
$31 million in establishment costs, primarily related to technology and branding expenses associated with the separation.
Annuity sales increased 8 percent on a quarter-over-quarter and sequential basis, primarily driven by sales of Shield annuities, which increased 67 percent quarter-over-quarter and 15 percent sequentially.
Assets above CTE95 were $2.3 billion, unchanged from the second quarter of 2017.
“We are pleased with the performance of our hedging program and our sales momentum during our first reporting period as a standalone company,” commented Eric Steigerwalt, president and chief executive officer, Brighthouse Financial. “As we execute on our strategy, we believe that our focused product offerings, strong balance sheet, and growing brand awareness position us favorably to capitalize on growth opportunities in the market.”

(1) Annuities sales in the third quarter of 2017 include $69 million in sales of a fixed index annuity distributed exclusively by MassMutual, representing 90 percent of gross sales assumed via reinsurance agreement.

Annuities
Operating earnings in the Annuities segment were $355 million in the current quarter, compared to $247 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $226 million in the second quarter of 2017.
The current quarter includes $142 million of favorable notable items (described above), while the second quarter of 2017 included $25 million of favorable notable items related to reinsurance recaptures. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, operating earnings reflect lower derivative net investment income and higher expenses, partially offset by favorable taxes. On a sequential basis, operating earnings reflect lower amortization of deferred acquisition costs ("DAC") and favorable taxes.
As mentioned above, overall annuity sales increased 8 percent on a quarter-over-quarter and sequential basis, primarily driven by strong sales of Shield annuities, which increased 67 percent quarter-over-quarter and 15 percent sequentially.
Life
Operating earnings in the Life segment were $6 million in the current quarter, compared to operating earnings of $25 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $12 million in the second quarter of 2017.
The current quarter includes $17 million of unfavorable notable items (described above), compared to $12 million in favorable notable items in the second quarter of 2017. On a sequential basis, operating earnings reflect favorable underwriting and favorable taxes.

Life insurance sales were down, consistent with the company's strategy of migrating to simpler life insurance solutions and away from products such as participating whole life. As previously disclosed, Brighthouse Financial is in the process of revamping this business.
Run-off
Operating earnings in the Run-off segment were $83 million in the current quarter, compared to operating earnings of $27 million in the third quarter of 2016 and operating earnings of $52 million in the second quarter of 2017.
The current quarter contains $9 million of favorable notable items (described above), compared to $21 million in unfavorable notable items in the third quarter of 2016 and $5 million in favorable notable items in the second quarter of 2017. Operating earnings in the current quarter reflect favorable underwriting and taxes on a quarter-over-quarter and sequential basis.
Corporate & Other
Corporate & Other had an operating loss of $1,120 million in the current quarter, compared to operating earnings of $30 million in the third quarter of 2016 and operating earnings of $34 million in the second quarter of 2017. Results in the quarter included $1,104 million in unfavorable notable items (described above) and reflect lower net investment income on a quarter-over-quarter and sequential basis. Results in the second quarter of 2017 included favorable taxes.

Net investment income
Net investment income decreased 12 percent quarter-over-quarter to $761 million, primarily from lower alternative investment income and lower prepayments as well as a smaller securities lending portfolio. Net investment income decreased by less than one percent sequentially.
The net investment income yield was approximately 4.3 percent during the quarter.

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Disclosures
In this news release, we present certain measures of our performance that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"). We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the understanding of our performance by highlighting the results of operations and the underlying profitability drivers of our business.
The following non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed as substitutes for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP:
Non-GAAP financial measures:

Comparable GAAP financial measures:

book value, excluding AOCI / stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI
book value / stockholders' equity
operating earnings (loss)
net income (loss)
operating revenues
revenues
operating expenses
expenses
operating return on equity
return on equity
operating earnings (loss) per share
earnings per share
Reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable historical GAAP measures are included below in this news release.
Our definitions of the non-GAAP and other financial measures discussed in this news release may differ from those used by other companies. For example, as indicated below, we exclude guaranteed minimum income benefit ("GMIB") revenues and related embedded derivatives gains (losses) as well as GMIB benefits and associated deferred acquisition costs ("DAC") and value of business acquired ("VOBA") offsets from operating earnings (loss), thereby excluding substantially all guaranteed minimum living benefit ("GMLB") activity from operating earnings (loss).
Operating Earnings (Loss), Operating Revenues and Operating Expenses
Operating earnings (loss) is used by management to evaluate performance, allocate resources and facilitate comparisons to industry results. This financial measure focuses on our primary businesses principally by excluding the impact of market volatility, which could distort trends, and revenues and costs related to non-core products and businesses. Non-core businesses include discontinued operations and other businesses that have been or will be sold or exited by us, referred to as divested businesses, and certain entities required to be consolidated under GAAP.
Provided below are the adjustments to GAAP revenues and GAAP expenses used to calculate operating revenues and operating expenses, respectively. Operating earnings (loss), as presented in this news release, reflects operating revenues less operating expenses, both net of income tax.
The following are excluded from total revenues in calculating the operating revenues component of operating earnings (loss):
Net investment gains (losses);

Net derivative gains (losses) except: (i) earned income on derivatives and amortization of premium on derivatives that are hedges of investments or that are used to replicate certain investments, but do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment ("Investment Hedge Adjustments"), and (ii) earned income on derivatives that are hedges of policyholder account balances, but do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment ("PAB Adjustments");
Amortization of unearned revenue related to net investment gains (losses) and net derivative gains (losses) and certain variable annuity GMIB fees (“GMIB Fees”);
Certain amounts related to securitization entities that are VIEs consolidated under GAAP; and
Revenues from divested businesses.
The following are excluded from total expenses in calculating the operating expenses component of operating earnings (loss):
Amounts associated with benefits and hedging costs related to GMIBs (“GMIB Costs”);
Amounts associated with periodic crediting rate adjustments based on the total return of a contractually referenced pool of assets and market value adjustments associated with surrenders or terminations of contracts (“Market Value Adjustments”);
Amortization of DAC and VOBA related to (i) net investment gains (losses), (ii) net derivative gains (losses), (iii) GMIB Fees and GMIB Costs and (iv) Market Value Adjustments;
Recognition of certain contingent assets and liabilities that could not be recognized at acquisition or adjusted for during the measurement period under GAAP business combination accounting guidance;
Expenses of divested businesses;
Amounts related to securitization entities that are VIEs consolidated under GAAP;
Goodwill impairment; and
Costs related to: (i) implementation of new insurance regulatory requirements and (ii) acquisition and integration costs.
The tax impact of the adjustments mentioned is calculated net of the U.S. statutory tax rate, which could differ from our effective tax rate.
Consistent with GAAP guidance for segment reporting, operating earnings (loss) is also our GAAP measure of segment performance.

Operating Return On Equity and Operating Earnings (Loss) Per Share
Operating return on equity and operating earnings (loss) per share are measures used by management to evaluate the execution of our business strategy and align such strategy with our shareholders’ interests.
Operating return on equity is defined as total annual operating earnings (loss) on a four quarter trailing basis divided by the simple average of the most recent five quarters of total stockholders’ equity, excluding AOCI.
Operating earnings (loss) per share is defined as total annual operating earnings (loss) on a four quarter trailing basis divided by the weighted average number of fully diluted shares of common stock outstanding for the period.
Book Value per Common Share
We use the term "book value" to refer to "stockholders' equity." Book value per common share is defined as ending stockholders' equity, including AOCI, divided by weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted. Book value per common share, excluding AOCI, is defined as ending stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI, divided by weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted.
We provide these measures to enable investors to analyze the amount of the company's net worth that is primarily attributable to the company's business operations. We believe they are useful to investors because they eliminate the effect of items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period, primarily based on changes in interest rates.
Sales
Statistical sales information for Life sales are calculated using the LIMRA definition of sales for core direct sales, excluding company-sponsored internal exchanges, corporate-owned life insurance, bank-owned life insurance, and private placement variable universal life insurance. Annuity sales consist of 100 percent of direct statutory premiums, excluding company-sponsored internal exchanges and the fixed index annuity distributed by MassMutual (discussed above). These sales statistics do not correspond to revenues under GAAP, but are used as relevant measures of business activity.
Other Financial Disclosures
Net income (loss)/operating earnings (loss) per common share is defined as net income (loss) or operating earnings (loss), divided by weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted.
Holding company liquid assets include liquid assets in Brighthouse Financial, Inc., Brighthouse Holdings, LLC, and Brighthouse Services, LLC. Liquid assets include cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and publicly-traded securities excluding assets that are pledged or otherwise committed. Assets pledged or otherwise committed include amounts received in connection with derivatives and collateral financing arrangements.
Notable items reflect the impact of events that affected our results but that were unknown. Notable items also include certain items anticipated to help investors have a better understanding of our results and to evaluate and forecast those results, such as establishment costs.

Forward-Looking Statements
This news release may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give expectations or forecasts of future events. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “will,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe” and other words and terms of similar meaning, or are tied to future periods, in connection with a discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, statements regarding the separation from MetLife, including the expected benefits thereof, the recapitalization actions, including expected benefits thereof, prospective services or products, future performance or results of current and anticipated services or products, sales efforts, expenses, the outcome of contingencies such as legal proceedings, trends in operations and financial results.
Any or all forward-looking statements may turn out to be wrong. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties. Many such factors will be important in determining the actual future results of Brighthouse, its subsidiaries and affiliates. These statements are based on current expectations and the current economic environment. They involve a number of risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. These statements are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements due to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors. Although it is not possible to identify all of these risks and factors, they include, among others: the impact of the separation on our business and profitability due to MetLife’s strong brand and reputation, the increased costs related to replacing arrangements with MetLife with those of third parties and incremental costs as a public company; whether the operational, strategic and other benefits of the separation can be achieved, and our ability to implement our business strategy; our degree of leverage following the separation due to indebtedness incurred in connection with the separation; differences between actual experience and actuarial assumptions and the effectiveness of our actuarial models; higher risk management costs and exposure to increased counterparty risk due to guarantees within certain of our products; the effectiveness of our proposed exposure management strategy, and the timing of its implementation and the impact of such strategy on net income volatility and negative effects on our statutory capital; the additional reserves we will be required to hold against our variable annuities as a result of actuarial guidelines; a sustained period of low equity market prices and interest rates that are lower than those we assumed when we issued our variable annuity products; the effect adverse capital and credit market conditions may have on our ability to meet liquidity needs and our access to capital; the impact of regulatory, legislative or tax changes on our insurance business or other operations; the effectiveness of our risk management policies and procedures; the availability of reinsurance and the ability of our counterparties to our reinsurance or indemnification arrangements to perform their obligations thereunder; heightened competition, including with respect to service, product features, scale, price, actual or perceived financial strength, claims-paying ratings, credit ratings, e-business capabilities and name recognition; changes in accounting standards, practices and/or policies applicable to us; the ability of our insurance subsidiaries to pay dividends to us, and our ability to pay dividends to our shareholders; our ability to market and distribute our products through distribution channels; tax consequences of the distribution, including whether the distribution will qualify for non-recognition treatment for U.S. federal income tax purposes and potential indemnification to MetLife if the distribution does not so qualify; our ability to attract and retain key personnel; and other factors described from time to time in documents that we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Investment Reconciliation Details

Note: See Appendix for Non-GAAP financial information, definitions and reconciliations. Financial information, unless otherwise noted, is rounded to millions. Some financial information, therefore, may not sum to the corresponding total.
The information presented in this financial supplement has been derived from the consolidated financial statements of Brighthouse Financial, Inc. for periods subsequent to the separation from MetLife, Inc. that occurred on August 4, 2017, and is derived from the combined financial information of the MetLife U.S. Retail Separation Business for periods prior to the separation.  The combined financial information was prepared in connection with the separation of a substantial portion of MetLife, Inc.’s former Retail segment as well as certain portions of its former Corporate Benefit Funding segment, and presents the combined results of operations and financial condition of certain former direct and indirect subsidiaries and businesses of MetLife, Inc., including Brighthouse Life Insurance Company (formerly MetLife Insurance Company USA) and its subsidiaries, New England Life Insurance Company, Brighthouse Life Insurance Company of NY (formerly First MetLife Investors Insurance Company), MetLife Reinsurance Company of Delaware, MetLife Reinsurance Company of South Carolina, Brighthouse Investment Advisers, LLC (formerly MetLife Advisers, LLC), and a designated protected cell of MetLife Reinsurance Company of Vermont.  As used in this financial supplement, “Brighthouse Financial,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” and “us” refer to Brighthouse Financial, Inc., the entity that subsequent to the separation holds, through its subsidiaries, the assets (including the equity interests of certain former MetLife, Inc. subsidiaries) and liabilities associated with MetLife, Inc.’s former Brighthouse Financial segment.
