Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements and


Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 28, 2014, Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (the "Company," "we," or "our") issued a press release announcing its financial results for the first quarter of 2014. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference and furnished herewith. In addition, the Company furnishes herewith, as Exhibit 99.2, its Statistical Supplement for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014.

We follow accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). The press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and the financial information furnished as Exhibit 99.2 include information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted basis. Certain non-GAAP performance measures in these exhibits exclude the impact of consolidating certain investment entities ("CIEs"), as well as certain integration/restructuring charges, the cessation of the deposit-taking and lending activities of Ameriprise National Trust Bank, market impact on variable annuity guaranteed benefits, market impact on indexed universal life benefits, realized gains (losses) and income (loss) from discontinued operations. Management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures better reflects the underlying performance of our 2014 and 2013 core operations and facilitates a more meaningful trend analysis. Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 also contain certain non-GAAP debt, capital and shareholders' equity measures, along with financial ratios incorporating such measures that exclude amounts related to one or more of the following:
accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI"), fair value of hedges, unamortized discount and the impact of consolidating the assets and liabilities of certain CIEs. Management believes that these non-GAAP debt, capital and shareholders' equity measures, and the corresponding ratios, better represent our capital structure, and, in the case of adjustments related to former banking operations, these non-GAAP measures enable better comparability of year-over-year results. Management uses certain of these non-GAAP measures to evaluate our financial performance on a basis comparable to that used by some securities analysts and investors. Also, certain of these non-GAAP measures are taken into consideration, to varying degrees, for purposes of business planning and analysis and for certain compensation-related matters.

Our non-GAAP financial measures included in Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, which our management views as important indicators of financial performance, include the following: adjusted net pretax operating margin; adjusted operating earnings; adjusted operating revenues; Ameriprise Financial shareholders' equity excluding AOCI; Ameriprise Financial shareholders' equity excluding CIEs; Ameriprise Financial shareholders' equity excluding CIEs and AOCI; basic operating earnings per share; effective tax rate excluding noncontrolling interests; operating earnings; operating earnings per diluted share; operating effective tax rate; operating expenses; operating return on equity excluding AOCI; operating total net revenues; pretax operating earnings; pretax operating margin; return on equity excluding AOCI; total Ameriprise Financial capital excluding fair value of hedges, unamortized discount and equity of CIEs; total Ameriprise Financial long-term debt excluding fair value of hedges and unamortized discount; total Ameriprise Financial long-term debt to total Ameriprise Financial capital excluding fair value of hedges, unamortized discount and equity of CIEs; and various financial measures that exclude the results of former banking operations.
