Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

ING Group has announced that, on May 8, 2013, it will release earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. ING Group continues to consolidate us for financial reporting purposes. ING Group's results will therefore include financial and other information relating to us, including information that has not previously been disclosed. ING Group reports earnings on the basis of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which differs in many respects from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (US GAAP), the basis on which we report earnings. You should therefore not consider our results, as reported by ING Group under IFRS, as necessarily indicative of our results under US GAAP. We intend to announce our quarterly earnings under US GAAP on May 23, 2013.

When published, a copy of ING Group's earnings announcement, quarterly report and statistical supplement as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 will be available at http://www.ing.com/Our-Company/Investor-relations.htm. You may access the same website for information as to how to dial into ING Group's earnings call for the quarter.

We hereby confirm, as of the date of this report, the preliminary US GAAP earnings estimates included in the IPO Registration Statement under the caption "Summary-Preliminary Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2013".



Item 8.01 Other Events.

On May 7, 2013, the Company completed the offering of 65,192,307 shares of Common Stock, including the issuance and sale by the Company of 30,769,230 shares of Common Stock and the sale by ING Insurance International B.V. (the "Selling Stockholder"), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of ING Group and previously the Company's sole stockholder, of 34,423,077 shares of the Company's outstanding stock (collectively, the "IPO"). The sales were made pursuant to an underwriting agreement, dated as of May 1, 2013 (the "Underwriting Agreement"), among the Company, the Selling Stockholder, and the underwriters named therein (the "Underwriters").


Shares of the Company's Common Stock were initially offered to the public by the Underwriters at a per-share price of $19.50 (the "IPO Price"). The net proceeds to the Company from the IPO were approximately $570 million. Following the IPO, the Selling Stockholder continues to hold approximately 75% of the Company's outstanding Common Stock. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Selling Stockholder has granted the Underwriters an option to acquire from the Selling Stockholder up to an additional 9,778,846 shares of Common Stock at the IPO Price.

On May 1, 2013, and as more fully described in the IPO Registration Statement, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized the issuance of warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase up to 26,050,846 shares of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Common Stock") to ING Group, pursuant to a warrant agreement, dated as of May 7, 2013 (the "Warrant Agreement"), among the Company, Computershare Inc. and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as warrant agent. The initial exercise price of the Warrants is $48.75 per share, subject to adjustments, including for stock dividends, certain cash dividends, subdivisions, combinations, reclassifications and non-cash distributions. The Warrants also provide for, upon the occurrence of certain change of control events affecting the Company, an increase in the number of shares to which a Warrant holder will be entitled upon payment of the aggregate exercise price of the Warrants.

The Warrants are exercisable during the period from May 7, 2014 to May 7, 2023, provided, however, that they are not exercisable by ING Group or any of its affiliates before January 1, 2017. For so long as ING Group holds any Warrants, ING Group will have registration rights with respect to such Warrants under the Registration Rights Agreement.

The Warrants are net share settled, which means that no cash is payable by a Warrant holder in respect of the exercise price of a Warrant upon exercise. Such Warrant holder will receive the number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of shares into which the Warrant is exercisable, less the number of shares having a value equal to the aggregate exercise price. The value of the shares for purposes of the net share settlement will be determined based on the volume-weighted average prices of shares of common stock on the NYSE (or such other principal stock exchange on which such shares are traded at the time of exercise) during the ten consecutive trading day period beginning on and including the trading day immediately following the exercise date.

Warrant holders will not be entitled, by virtue of holding warrants, to vote, to consent, to receive dividends, if any, to receive notices as stockholders with respect to any meeting of stockholders or to exercise any rights whatsoever as our stockholders until they become holders of the shares of our Common Stock issued upon exercise of the warrants.

A copy of each of the Warrant Agreement and the Warrant is furnished herewith as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

On May 1, 2013, the Company issued a press release relating to the IPO, which has been furnished as Exhibit 99.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
