Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 17, 2013, Allstate Life Insurance Company ("Allstate"), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Registrant, entered into a stock purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with Resolution Life Holdings, Inc. ("Resolution Life") and Resolution Life L.P. Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, Resolution Life has agreed to acquire all of the shares of Allstate's wholly owned subsidiary, Lincoln Benefit Life Company ("Lincoln"), for cash equal to $600 million, subject to adjustment as specified in the Purchase Agreement.

Pursuant to a reinsurance agreement, Allstate will continue to reinsure on a 100% coinsurance basis, life insurance policies sold through the Allstate agency channel, variable annuities previously retroceded by Allstate to insurance affiliates of Prudential Financial, Inc., and certain other annuity business. In addition, at the closing of the transactions, Allstate will enter into agreements to provide administrative and transition services to Resolution Life.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties as well as covenants by each of the parties. The representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement are the product of negotiation among the parties to the Purchase Agreement and are for the sole benefit of such parties. Any inaccuracies of such representations and warranties are subject to waiver by such parties in accordance with the Purchase Agreement without notice or liability to any other person. In some instances, the representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement may represent an allocation among the parties of risk associated with particular matters, and the assertions embodied in those representations and warranties are qualified by information disclosed by one party to the other in connection with the execution of the Purchase Agreement. Consequently, persons other than the parties to the Purchase Agreement may not rely upon the representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement as characterizations of actual facts or circumstances as of the date of the Purchase Agreement or as of any other date. Each of Allstate and Resolution Life has agreed to indemnify the other for breaches or inaccuracies of its representations, warranties, and covenants as well as for certain other specified matters.

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013. Completion of the transaction is subject to receipt of insurance regulatory approvals and satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

The above description of the Purchase Agreement and the agreed forms of the related agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement and such forms of related agreements filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1.
