*Hurricane losses threatening Munich Re profit guidance for 2017 *

After Hurricane Harvey caused significant damage in Texas and adjacent
states at the end of August, there has now been another devastating storm in
the form of Hurricane Irma. It caused extensive damage on islands in the
Caribbean, and also in Florida. These two events are expected to result in
high insured losses, which the market and Munich Re are unable to quantify
at the moment. Despite good business performance in 2017 to date, the losses
from Harvey and Irma could mean that Munich Re might miss its profit
guidance of EUR2.0-2.4bn for the year - depending on how the business
performs until the end of 2017. The figures for the third quarter of 2017
will probably show a loss. Munich Re's business and risk strategy ensures
that even after such severe natural catastrophes the Group has a
sufficiently solid capital base to still be able to offer full reinsurance
capacity to its clients.
