NEWARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYS: PRU) has received notice of a proposed determination by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) that the Company should be subject to stricter prudential regulatory standards and supervision by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as a "Covered Company," pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The Company currently is evaluating whether to request a nonpublic evidentiary hearing before the Council to contest the proposed determination, as it is entitled to do under the applicable regulations.

See "Business—Regulation" and "Risk Factors" included in the Company's 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K for more information regarding the potential impact of the Dodd-Frank Act on the Company, including as a result of these stricter prudential standards.
