This is our first report on Manulife Financial Corporation, a leading financial products and services provider. Despite a difficult market and operating environment, Manulife produced strong core earnings and sustained an increase in adjusted book value per share.

Net income of $1.4 billion remained consistent with the previous year’s quarter. In the quarter, Manulife created a new company value worth $509 million. APE sales also grew significantly due to sales growth in Asia. Throughout the first quarter, sales momentum gained strength.
