Aetna calls 2010 a rebuilding year

Hartford Courant, January 13, 2010

Aetna Inc. will have lower profits in 2010 than it did in 2009, Aetna Chief Financial Officer Joseph Zubretsky told analysts at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. Zubretsky said that 2010 is a rebuilding year, as the company works toward returning to annual profits in the high single digits. Zubretsky said that the 2010 forecast doesn't take the passage of healthcare reform into account, but added that recent diversification makes Aetna "well-positioned to take advantage of the transformational change that will take place in the business," the Hartford Courant reports.
