Exhibit 99.1
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brighthouse Financial Announces Second Quarter 2021 Results
Announced a new repurchase authorization of up to an additional $1 billion of common stock
The company repurchased $246 million of its common stock year-to-date through August 4, 2021
Estimated combined risk-based capital ("RBC") ratio between 480% and 500%; holding company liquid assets of $1.6 billion
$250 million subsidiary ordinary dividend paid to the holding company in the second quarter of 2021
Regulatory approval for $600 million dividend from Brighthouse Reinsurance Company of Delaware to Brighthouse Life Insurance Company received in July 2021
Annuity sales increased 25% over the second quarter of 2020
Life sales increased 117% over the second quarter of 2020
Second quarter 2021 net income available to shareholders of $10 million, or $0.11 per diluted share
Second quarter 2021 adjusted earnings, less notable items*, of $458 million, or $5.32 per diluted share

CHARLOTTE, NC, August 5, 2021 — Brighthouse Financial, Inc. ("Brighthouse Financial" or the "company") (Nasdaq: BHF) announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.
Second Quarter 2021 Results
The company reported net income available to shareholders of $10 million in the second quarter of 2021, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with a net loss available to shareholders of $1,998 million in the second quarter of 2020. During the quarter, as a result of market performance, the value of our hedges decreased, as expected. Due to being accounted for as insurance liabilities as required under U.S. GAAP, certain corresponding liabilities are less sensitive to market movements and, therefore, did not fully offset the decrease in the value of our hedges.
The company ended the second quarter of 2021 with common stockholders' equity ("book value") of $14.8 billion, or $175.19 per common share, and book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI") of $10.2 billion, or $120.62 per common share.

For the second quarter of 2021, the company reported adjusted earnings* of $435 million, or $5.05 per diluted share, compared with adjusted earnings of $11 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020.
Adjusted earnings for the quarter reflected a $23 million after tax unfavorable notable item, or $0.27 per diluted share, for establishment costs related to planned technology and other expenses associated with the company's separation from its former parent company.
Corporate expenses in the second quarter of 2021 were $218 million, up from $203 million in the first quarter of 2021, both on a pre-tax basis.
Annuity sales increased 25% quarter-over-quarter and 8% sequentially, driven by record sales of Shield Level annuities and variable annuities with FlexChoice Access. Life sales increased 117% quarter-over-quarter and 13% sequentially, driven by sales of SmartCare.

During the second quarter of 2021, the company repurchased $125 million of its common stock, with an additional $53 million of its common stock repurchased, on a trade date basis, through August 4, 2021. Since the announcement of its first stock repurchase authorization in August 2018, the company has repurchased $1,266 million of its common stock, on a trade date basis, through August 4, 2021. The company also announced today a new repurchase authorization of up to $1 billion of its common stock. This stock repurchase authorization is in addition to the $200 million stock repurchase authorization the company announced in February 2021, under which $34 million remains as of August 4, 2021.

"Brighthouse Financial delivered another quarter of strong results," said Eric Steigerwalt, president and CEO, Brighthouse Financial. "We maintained balance sheet strength, grew sales, prudently managed our expenses and repurchased more of our common stock. In addition, we are very pleased to announce today our new stock repurchase program, which positions us to achieve our goal of returning $1.5 billion to our shareholders by the end of this year and supports our ongoing commitment to return capital to our shareholders."

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Disclosures

Our definitions of the non-GAAP and other financial measures may differ from those used by other companies.

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosures

We present certain measures of our performance that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, also known as "GAAP." We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures highlight our results of operations and the underlying profitability drivers of our business, as well as enhance the understanding of our performance by the investor community.

The following non-GAAP financial measures, previously referred to as operating measures, should not be viewed as substitutes for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP:

Reconciliations to the most directly comparable historical GAAP measures are included for those measures which are presented herein. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are not accessible on a forward-looking basis because we believe it is not possible without unreasonable efforts to provide other than a range of net investment gains and losses and net derivative gains and losses, which can fluctuate significantly within or outside the range and from period to period and may have a material impact on net income (loss) available to shareholders.

Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted Revenues and Adjusted Expenses

Adjusted earnings, which may be positive or negative, is used by management to evaluate performance, allocate resources and facilitate comparisons to industry results. This financial measure focuses on our primary businesses principally by excluding the impact of market volatility, which could distort trends.

Adjusted earnings reflects adjusted revenues less adjusted expenses, both net of income tax, and excludes net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests and preferred stock dividends. Provided below are the adjustments to GAAP revenues and GAAP expenses used to calculate adjusted revenues and adjusted expenses, respectively.

The following are significant items excluded from total revenues, net of income tax, in calculating the adjusted revenues component of adjusted earnings:

Net investment gains (losses);

Net derivative gains (losses) ("NDGL"), except earned income and amortization of premium on derivatives that are hedges of investments or that are used to replicate certain investments, but do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment ("Investment Hedge Adjustments"); and

Certain variable annuity GMIB fees ("GMIB Fees").

The following are significant items excluded from total expenses, net of income tax, in calculating the adjusted expenses component of adjusted earnings:

Amounts associated with benefits related to GMIBs ("GMIB Costs");

Amounts associated with periodic crediting rate adjustments based on the total return of a contractually referenced pool of assets and market value adjustments associated with surrenders or terminations of contracts ("Market Value Adjustments"); and

Amortization of DAC and value of business acquired ("VOBA") related to (i) net investment gains (losses), (ii) net derivative gains (losses), (iii) GMIB Fees and GMIB Costs and (iv) Market Value Adjustments.

The tax impact of the adjustments mentioned is calculated net of the statutory tax rate, which could differ from our effective tax rate.

Consistent with GAAP guidance for segment reporting, adjusted earnings is also our GAAP measure of segment performance.

Adjusted Earnings per Common Share and Adjusted Return on Common Equity

Adjusted earnings per common share and adjusted return on common equity are measures used by management to evaluate the execution of our business strategy and align such strategy with our shareholders' interests.

Adjusted earnings per common share is defined as adjusted earnings for the period divided by the weighted average number of fully diluted shares of common stock outstanding for the period. The weighted average common shares outstanding used to calculate adjusted earnings per share will differ from such shares used to calculate diluted net income

(loss) available to shareholders per common share when the inclusion of dilutive shares has an anti-dilutive effect for one calculation but not for the other.

Adjusted return on common equity is defined as total annual adjusted earnings on a four quarter trailing basis, divided by the simple average of the most recent five quarters of total Brighthouse Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI.

Adjusted Net Investment Income

We present adjusted net investment income to measure our performance for management purposes, and we believe it enhances the understanding of our investment portfolio results. Adjusted net investment income represents net investment income, including investment hedge adjustments.

Other Financial Disclosures

Corporate Expenses

Corporate expenses includes functional department expenses, public company expenses, certain investment expenses, retirement funding and incentive compensation; and excludes establishment costs.

Notable items

Certain of the non-GAAP measures described above may be presented further adjusted to exclude notable items. Notable items reflect the impact on our results of certain unanticipated items and events, as well as certain items and events that were anticipated, such as establishment costs. The presentation of notable items and non-GAAP measures, less notable items is intended to help investors better understand our results and to evaluate and forecast those results.

Book Value per Common Share and Book Value per Common Share, excluding AOCI

Brighthouse uses the term "book value" to refer to "Brighthouse Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders' equity, including AOCI." Book value per common share is defined as ending Brighthouse Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders' equity, including AOCI, divided by ending common shares outstanding. Book value per common share, excluding AOCI, is defined as ending Brighthouse Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI, divided by ending common shares outstanding.

CTE95

CTE95 is defined as the amount of assets required to satisfy contract holder obligations across market environments in the average of the worst five percent of a set of capital market scenarios over the life of the contracts.

CTE98

Holding Company Liquid Assets

Holding company liquid assets include liquid assets in Brighthouse Financial, Inc., Brighthouse Holdings, LLC, and Brighthouse Services, LLC. Liquid assets are comprised of cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and publicly-traded securities, excluding assets that are pledged or otherwise committed. Assets pledged or otherwise committed include assets held in trust.

Total Adjusted Capital

Total adjusted capital primarily consists of statutory capital and surplus, as well as the statutory asset valuation reserve. When referred to as “combined,” represents that of our insurance subsidiaries as a whole.

Sales

Life insurance sales consist of 100 percent of annualized new premium for term life, first-year paid premium for whole life, universal life, and variable universal life, and total paid premium for indexed universal life. We exclude company-sponsored internal exchanges, corporate-owned life insurance, bank-owned life insurance, and private placement variable universal life.

Annuity sales consist of 100 percent of direct statutory premiums, except for fixed index annuity sales distributed through MassMutual that consist of 90 percent of gross sales. Annuity sales exclude certain internal exchanges. These sales statistics do not correspond to revenues under GAAP, but are used as relevant measures of business activity.

Net Investment Income Yield

Similar to adjusted net investment income, we present net investment income yields as a performance measure we believe enhances the understanding of our investment portfolio results. Net investment income yields are calculated on adjusted net investment income as a percent of average quarterly asset carrying values. Asset carrying values exclude unrealized gains (losses), collateral received in connection with our securities lending program, freestanding derivative assets and collateral received from derivative counterparties. Investment fee and expense yields are calculated as investment fees and expenses as a percent of average quarterly asset estimated fair values. Asset estimated fair values exclude collateral received in connection with our securities lending program, freestanding derivative assets and collateral received from derivative counterparties.

Normalized Statutory Earnings (Loss)

Normalized statutory earnings (loss) is used by management to measure our insurance companies’ ability to pay future distributions and is reflective of whether our hedging program functions as intended. Normalized statutory earnings (loss) is calculated as statutory pre-tax net gain from operations adjusted for the favorable or unfavorable impacts of (i) net realized capital gains (losses), (ii) the change in total asset requirement at CTE95, net of the change in our variable annuity reserves, and (iii) unrealized gains (losses) associated with our variable annuities risk management strategy. Normalized statutory earnings (loss) may be further adjusted for certain unanticipated items that impacted our results in order to help management and investors better understand, evaluate and forecast those results.

Exhibit 99.2
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brighthouse Financial Announces $1 Billion Stock Repurchase Program
CHARLOTTE, NC, August 5, 2021 — Brighthouse Financial, Inc. ("Brighthouse Financial" or the "company") (Nasdaq: BHF) announced today that it has authorized the repurchase of up to $1 billion of its common stock. The stock repurchase program is in addition to the $200 million stock repurchase authorization announced by the company in February 2021, under which $34 million remains as of August 4, 2021.
“We are pleased to announce this new authorization as it reflects our financial strength, positions us to achieve our goal of returning $1.5 billion to our shareholders by the end of this year and supports our ongoing commitment to return capital to our shareholders,” said Eric Steigerwalt, president and CEO, Brighthouse Financial. “Since the announcement of our first stock repurchase authorization in August of 2018 through August 4 of this year, we have repurchased almost $1.3 billion of our common stock, which represents a reduction of more than 31% of shares outstanding from the time we became an independent, public company.”

Repurchases under the program may be made through open market purchases, including pursuant to 10b5-1 plans or pursuant to accelerated stock repurchase plans, or through privately negotiated transactions, from time to time at management’s discretion in accordance with applicable legal requirements.
