    A Note from the PAC Treasurer I am pleased to announce the release of our 2016 Political Activities and Contributions Report (“annual report”). At Prudential we are committed to operating openly and believe the best way to demonstrate how we do business is to communicate and provide transparency to our shareholders, customers, employees and other important stakeholders. The decisions made by the government have a tremendous impact on how Prudential operates as a public company and competes in the global marketplace. Accordingly, it is important that the company maintain a presence in the public policy arena to express our viewpoints to legislators and regulators on key matters that impact how we operate as a business. Prudential sponsors a number of initiatives to help support an active profile in legislative and regulatory processes. Such sponsored activities include direct engagements with state and federal lawmakers and regulators, partnerships with trade organizations, operation of political action committees and, to a lesser extent, the use of corporate funds to support political organizations. Our annual report provides detailed information on Prudential’s sponsored political contributions and annual association dues, assessments and contributions to trade associations exceeding $25,000. The Company-sponsored political action committees operate in accordance with all relevant state and federal laws. Further information about our political action committees is available on the Federal Election Commission’s website at fec.gov. This report also provides a summary of Prudential’s policies and procedures for political activities. Prudential does not provide direct independent expenditures intended to support communications that expressly advocate the election or defeat of a candidate. In 2016, Prudential did not contribute corporate funds to support any state or local ballot initiative nor did it contribute direct financial or other corporate support to candidates for public office. If you have any questions related to Prudential’s political activities or contributions please submit an email to prudential.pac@prudential.com. Sincerely, Roman Gabriel Treasurer, The Prudential PACs 3

    Summary of Prudential Policies and Procedures for Political Activity Prudential Financial, Inc. (“Prudential”) recognizes the importance of participation in the American democratic process, both by individuals and the Company. Prudential also values transparency in this process and appreciates the need to disclose its political activity in an effort to promote ethical corporate governance, participation in political processes and confidence in the American democratic systems. Prudential’s United States political contributions and those of its political action committees (“PACs” or “Prudential PACs”) are made in accordance with federal and state campaign finance and other applicable laws without regard to the private political preferences of Prudential executives. Internal policies and standards adopted by the Company also govern political activity. The Corporate Governance and Business Ethics Committee of Prudential’s Board of Directors provides guidance and approves the political contributions strategy and policy of the company. All employees are permitted to engage in political activities to the extent permitted by law, provided they do so as individuals and not as representatives of the Company. Certain personal political contributions of employees and family members are prohibited or restricted under Company policy in order to comply with federal, state and local “pay-to-play” laws pertaining to contributions by vendors to the public sector. Prudential prohibits individual political contributions for the purpose of influencing or attempting to influence the award of business to the company. In accordance with federal, state, and local campaign finance laws, Prudential may provide corporate political contributions to state political party committees or other political committees excluding candidate committees. Prudential will not contribute financial or other support to United States political parties, committees, or candidates for public office or support other organizations except where approved by the Head of External Affairs in consultation with the Law Department. All direct corporate contributions will be included in this annual report. Prudential may also contribute to 527 groups or super PACs in accordance with all federal, state, and local campaign finance laws. Such contributions of $25,000 or more will be approved by the Head of External Affairs in consultation with the Law Department and will be disclosed in this annual report. Prudential sponsors PACs to which eligible employees working in the United States may contribute. Such contributions are strictly voluntary, and the Company and its management will not penalize anyone for electing not to participate. Political contributions made by Prudential PACs provide a voice for Prudential employees so that they may participate in the American democratic process. Prudential PACs support candidates from both major political parties who share Prudential’s vision and values of protecting the retirement, savings, investment and insurance needs of all Americans. 4

    Summary of Prudential Policies and Procedures for Political Activity Political contribution determinations are made by the Prudential Financial, Inc. Federal Political Action Committee and Prudential Financial Inc. State and Federal Political Action Committee Boards of Directors in consultation with Prudential’s External Affairs Department and are executed by the Administrator and Treasurer of the Prudential PACs. A complete membership listing of the Prudential PACs Boards is included on pages 6 and 7. Each board meets once per year at a minimum. The PAC Director, Treasurer and Boards of Directors are responsible for, respectively, managing and administering all Prudential PACs, including making final decisions as to political contributions and related activities of the PACs. The External Affairs Department works closely with the Legal and Compliance Departments to ensure that Prudential’s internal policies and procedures relating to U.S. political activities are strictly maintained. In addition, a review of the Prudential PACs is conducted every five years by an independent function. Prudential and Prudential’s PACs file reports and disclose political contributions and lobbying expenditures to the public through the means prescribed by state and federal governmental authorities. In their dealings with public officials and government employees, all Prudential employees are required to comply with Prudential’s policies on political activities, lobbying and gifts and entertainment, including tracking and reporting activities and related expenses involving dealings with public officials and employees. Prudential lobbyists also are required to comply with relevant laws and behave in a manner that meets generally accepted standards of conduct of the profession. 5
