January 29, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period"). Investors who wish to
become proactively involved in the litigation have until April 6, 2018

lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important
decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the

claiming the largest loss from investment in MetLife securities during
the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead
plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet
been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose
during the Class Period that MetLife's practices and procedures used to
estimate its reserves set aside for annuity and pension payments were
inadequate and MetLife had inadequate internal controls over financial

According to the complaint, following a December 15, 2017 filing with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") announcing that the
Company had been unable to locate some of the Company's annuitant
population and planned to provide an update upon the filing of MetLife's
Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2017; a December 15, 2017
article which discussed the extent and duration of MetLife's failure to
pay pension benefits; and, a January 29, 2018 press release announcing
that MetLife would reschedule its earnings releases and conference calls
for the fourth quarter of and full year of 2017, that the Company had
identified material weaknesses in its internal controls, that the
Company would have to revise certain of its prior financial statements,
and that the SEC and New York Department of Financial Services had made
inquiries to MetLife with respect to the foregoing issues, the value of
MetLife shares declined significantly.
