Third Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results

  • GAAP net income was $7.3 million, compared to third quarter 2021 of $151.0 million. The decline was primarily due to the absence of net unrealized gains from Assurant Ventures in third quarter 2021 and an increase in net realized losses from sales of fixed maturity securities.
  • GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.14, compared to third quarter 2021 of $2.54. The decrease was primarily driven by the factors noted above.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 decreased 31 percent compared to the prior year period, primarily due to reduced segment earnings and $21.8 million of higher pre-tax reportable catastrophes. Excluding reportable catastrophes, Adjusted EBITDA2 decreased 11 percent to $239.6 million, primarily due to higher non-catastrophe loss experience in Global Housing, as well as lower Global Lifestyle results mainly from lower earnings within Connected Living, including the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange.
  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share4, decreased 8 percent to $2.81, as lower earnings were partially offset by ongoing share repurchases.
  • Revenue from the Global Lifestyle and Global Housing segments totaled $2.47 billion compared to $2.43 billion in third quarter 2021, up 2 percent, primarily due to Global Automotive growth within Global Lifestyle.

Note: Throughout this press release, revenue refers to net earned premiums, fees and other income. GAAP revenue is equal to net earned premiums, fees and other income, net investment income and net realized gains (losses) on investments.

  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased compared to the prior year period, largely reflecting the challenging macroeconomic environment. Excluding a one-time $11.2 million client contract benefit in the quarter, underlying results decreased $21.6 million year-over-year, mainly driven by $7.6 million of unfavorable foreign exchange in Asia Pacific and Europe, reduced mobile trade-in margins that are expected to normalize in the fourth quarter, and higher claims costs in Connected Living. This was partially offset by continued mobile subscriber growth in North America.
  • Revenue increased modestly compared to the prior year period, primarily led by Global Automotive premium growth from strong prior period sales. Connected Living revenue decreased, mainly from runoff mobile programs and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange, partially offset by device protection growth in North America.

  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased compared to the prior year period. Pre-tax reportable catastrophes increased $22.4 million, primarily due to losses from Hurricane Ian. Excluding reportable catastrophes, Adjusted EBITDA2 decreased primarily due to approximately $38 million of higher non-catastrophe loss experience across all major products, including $24 million of prior period loss development. In lender-placed, the elevated loss experience, as well as higher catastrophe reinsurance costs, were largely offset by higher average insured values and premium rates.
  • Revenue increased year-over-year from growth in specialty products and lender-placed, where higher average insured values and premium rates were partially offset by higher catastrophe reinstatement premiums.

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss increased in third quarter 2022 compared to the prior year period, primarily driven by lower investment income.

Holding Company Liquidity Position

  • Holding company liquidity totaled $529 million as of September 30, 2022, or $304 million above the company’s current targeted minimum level of $225 million. Dividends paid by operating segments to the holding company in third quarter 2022 totaled $143 million. In addition to quarterly interest and Corporate and Other expenses, the company had $6 million of outflows primarily related to investments within Assurant Ventures. During fourth quarter 2022, the Company expects approximately $80 million of cash to be paid for two acquisitions within its commercial equipment business.
  • Share repurchases and common stock dividends totaled $117 million in third quarter 2022. During third quarter 2022, Assurant repurchased 493 thousand shares of common stock for $80 million and paid $37 million in common stock dividends. From October 1 through October 28, 2022, the company repurchased an additional 83 thousand shares for approximately $12 million, with $275 million remaining under the current repurchase authorization.

High single-digit growth

Based on current market conditions, for full-year 2022, the company expects:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes, to be modestly down to flat compared to 2021 results, as growth in Global Lifestyle is offset by a decline in Global Housing.
    • Global Lifestyle Adjusted EBITDA is expected to increase high single-digits, driven mainly by mobile in Connected Living from expansion across device protection and trade-in and upgrade programs. This will be partially offset by pressure in Asia Pacific and Europe from unfavorable foreign exchange and lower program volumes. Global Automotive is also expected to increase, driven by higher investment income and more favorable loss experience in select ancillary products.
    • Global Housing Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes, is expected to decrease by low- to mid-teens, primarily due to higher non-catastrophe loss experience related to elevated inflationary trends, mainly in lender-placed, as well as increased catastrophe reinsurance costs. The decline will be partially offset by higher average insured values and premium rates in lender-placed, along with ongoing expense initiatives.
    • Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA loss is expected to be approximately $105.0 million, reflecting higher employee-related and technology expenses compared to the prior year.
  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share to increase by high single-digits, driven by share repurchases, including the return of net proceeds from the sale of Global Preneed. Assurant’s consolidated effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 18 to 20 percent, which reflects the impact of the first quarter tax benefit and mix of international business.
  • Business segment dividends to be below the company’s average annual target of approximately three quarters of segment Adjusted EBITDA, including reportable catastrophes. This is subject to the growth of the businesses, investment portfolio performance, and rating agency and regulatory capital requirements.
  • Capital to be deployed to support business growth by funding investments and M&A, and to return capital to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends, subject to Board approval and market conditions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Assurant uses the following non-GAAP financial measures to analyze the company’s operating performance. Assurant’s non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Because Assurant’s calculation of these measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, investors should be careful when comparing Assurant’s non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies.

(1)

Assurant uses Adjusted EBITDA as an important measure of the company’s operating performance. Assurant defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income from continuing operations, excluding net realized losses (gains) on investments and fair value changes to equity securities, COVID-19 direct and incremental expenses, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-core operations, net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation expense, amortization of purchased intangible assets, restructuring costs related to strategic exit activities (outside of normal periodic restructuring and cost management activities), as well as other highly variable or unusual items. The company believes this metric provides investors with an important measure of the company’s operating performance because it excludes items that do not represent the ongoing operations of the company, and therefore (i) enhances management’s and investors’ ability to analyze the ongoing operations of its businesses and (ii) facilitates comparisons of its operating performance over multiple periods, including because the amortization expense associated with purchased intangible assets may fluctuate from period to period based on the timing, size, nature and number of acquisitions. Although the company excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets from Adjusted EBITDA, revenue generated from such intangible assets is included within the revenue in determining Adjusted EBITDA. The comparable GAAP measure is net income from continuing operations. See Note 2 below for a full reconciliation.

  (2)

Adjusted EBITDA, Excluding Reportable Catastrophes: Assurant uses Adjusted EBITDA (defined above), excluding reportable catastrophes (which represents individual catastrophic events that generate losses in excess of $5.0 million, pre-tax, net of reinsurance and client profit sharing adjustments and including reinstatement and other premiums), as another important measure of the company’s performance. The company believes this metric provides investors with an important measure of the company’s performance for the reasons noted above, and because it excludes reportable catastrophes, which can be volatile. The comparable GAAP measure is net income from continuing operations.

Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share: Assurant uses Adjusted earnings per diluted share as an important measure of the company’s stockholder value. Assurant defines Adjusted earnings per diluted share as net income from continuing operations, excluding net realized losses (gains) on investments and fair value changes to equity securities, amortization of purchased intangible assets, COVID-19 direct and incremental expenses, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-core operations, net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, restructuring costs related to strategic exit activities (outside of normal periodic restructuring and cost management activities), as well as other highly variable or unusual items, plus any dilutive preferred stock dividends, divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. The company believes this metric provides investors with an important measure of stockholder value because it excludes items that do not represent the ongoing operations of the company, and therefore (i) enhances management’s and investors’ ability to analyze the ongoing operations of its businesses and (ii) facilitates comparisons of its operating performance over multiple periods, including because the amortization expense associated with purchased intangible assets may fluctuate from period to period based on the timing, size, nature and number of acquisitions. Although the company excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets from Adjusted earnings, revenue generated from such intangible assets is included within the revenue in determining Adjusted earnings. The comparable GAAP measure is net income from continuing operations per diluted share, defined as net income from continuing operations plus any dilutive preferred stock dividends less net income from non-controlling interests, divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. See Note 4 below for a full reconciliation.

 

(4)

Adjusted Earnings, Excluding Reportable Catastrophes, per Diluted Share: Assurant uses Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share (each as defined above) as another important measure of the company's stockholder value. The company believes this metric provides investors with an important measure of stockholder value for the reasons noted above, and because it excludes reportable catastrophes, which can be volatile. The comparable GAAP measure is net income from continuing operations per diluted share (defined above).

The company outlook for Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes, for Assurant and Global Housing each constitute forward-looking information and the company believes that it cannot reconcile such forward-looking information to the most comparable GAAP measure without unreasonable efforts. Many of the GAAP components cannot be reliably quantified due to the combination of variability and volatility of such components and may, depending on the size of the components, have a significant impact on the reconciliation. The company is able to quantify a full-year estimate of interest expense, depreciation expense and amortization of purchased intangible assets, each on a pre-tax basis, which are expected to be approximately $107 million, $88 million and $70 million, respectively. The interest expense estimate assumes no additional debt is incurred or extinguished in the forecast period and excludes after-tax interest expenses included in debt extinguishment and other related costs.
