MetLife said Monday it is reducing its recently reported second-quarter earnings by $31 million after taxes because its New England Financial affiliate improperly deferred expenses. MetLife also replaced Thom Faria as the affiliate’s president.

The change restated the company’s net income to $580 million, from the $611 million reported Aug. 4. Both figures are up from MetLife’s year-earlier profit of $387 million.
