Prudential Financial, Inc.

decreased $128 million in 2001 from 2000, excluding the effect of the 2000 refinement in annuity reserves. The decrease reflected our maturing block of group annuity business and the decline in premiums mentioned above. In addition, interest expense decreased $31 million from 2000 to 2001 as a result of a lower level of investment-related borrowing and lower borrowing rates.

2000 to 1999 Annual Comparison. Benefits and expenses decreased $86 million, or 3%, from 1999 to 2000. Interest credited to policyholders declined from $1.086 billion in 1999 to $1.024 billion in 2000, primarily as a result of the runoff of our general account GIC business as noted above. This decrease was essentially offset by the $56 million charge we recorded in 2000 to increase our reserves for structured settlement products. The remainder of the decrease came primarily from a decrease in policyholders’ benefits, including the change in policy reserves, reflecting our maturing block of group annuity business.

Sales Results and Assets Under Management The following table shows the changes in the account values and net sales of Other Employee Benefits segment products for the periods indicated.

2001 to 2000 Annual Comparison. Assets under management in our full service defined contribution business amounted to $24.6 billion at December 31, 2001, a decrease of $1.4 billion, or 5%, from December 31, 2000. This decrease is primarily due to a decline in market value of mutual funds reflecting the general downturn in the equity markets. In addition, net sales decreased $1.2 billion in 2001 from 2000, reflecting a decrease in new institutional clients.

Assets under management for guaranteed products amounted to $39.8 billion at December 31, 2001, a decrease of $1.8 billion, or 4%, from December 31, 2000. The decrease from December 31, 2000 is primarily due to a decrease in separate account annuity assets that reflected approximately $1.4 billion of annuity benefits.

As of December 31, 2001, our guaranteed products assets under management included $10.2 billion relating to non- participating group annuities and structured settlements that were sold predominantly in a high interest rate environment. Historically, we have actively managed the investment portfolios underlying these long-duration
