Share:

Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a
partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces
that KSF has commenced an investigation into MetLife Inc. (NYSE:MET).

On December 15, 2017, the Company revealed that it failed to pay
pensions for tens of thousands of beneficiaries that it had "sought to
locate over time unsuccessfully" and would materially increase its
reserves as a result. Then, on January 29, 2018, the Company further
disclosed that a "material weakness" in its financial reporting had
caused reserves to be reduced incorrectly in relation to the outstanding
pension payments and as a result, had postponed the release of its Q4
earnings report and expected to increase reserves by $525 million to
$575 million, decrease its Q4 earnings by $135 million to $165 million
and decrease 2017 profits by $165 million to $195 million.

The Company's actions, directed by its executives, have exposed it to
significant financial losses, investigations by the SEC and several
state regulators, an ongoing securities class action lawsuit, and
recently, a complaint filed by Massachusetts' securities regulator for
defrauding investors by wrongfully releasing reserves instead of making
the outstanding pension payments.

KSF's investigation is focusing on whether MetLife's officers and/or
directors breached their fiduciary duties to MetLife's shareholders or
otherwise violated state or federal laws.
