Assurant Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2022 Financial Results

2023-02-07 16:30 ET - News Release

Delivered Strong Earnings Growth in Global Lifestyle and Improved Performance in Global Housing

Sustained Strong Balance Sheet and Capital Return


Company Website: http://www.assurant.com
ATLANTA -- (Business Wire)

Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), a leading global business services company that supports, protects and connects major consumer purchases, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2022.

“In 2022, we continued to execute on our vision to be the leading global business services provider supporting the advancement of the connected world. We delivered high single-digit growth in Global Lifestyle, while taking decisive actions in Global Housing to simplify our business and improve financial results,” said Assurant President and CEO Keith Demmings. “I am especially pleased with our strong fourth quarter segment results, which demonstrate our focus on driving outperformance over the long term. We also acted with urgency to mitigate the impact of global macroeconomic headwinds by streamlining our real estate footprint and increasing efficiency in our organizational structure, all while strengthening the business for the future through targeted investments in key product offerings and capabilities to sustain our competitive advantage.”

“For 2023, we expect our business to grow Adjusted EBITDA by low single-digits, excluding catastrophe losses, as we realize the benefits from our Global Housing transformation and continue to expand market share within Global Lifestyle. While we expect macroeconomic headwinds to persist near-term, we remain well-positioned to drive long-term shareholder value,” Demmings added.

Note: The metrics included within the company’s outlook are non-GAAP financial measures and the company believes that it cannot, without unreasonable efforts, forecast certain information needed to reconcile to the GAAP measures, the probable significance of which cannot be determined.

Note: Effective January 1, 2023, the company realigned the composition of its reportable segments to correspond with changes to its Global Housing operating structure. As a result, the Global Housing segment is now comprised of two key lines of business, Homeowners, and Renters and Other. Certain specialty products, mainly the Leased and Financed business, previously included in the Global Housing segment will now be reported in Global Lifestyle to better align with the company’s go-to-market strategy. This realignment has no impact on the company's consolidated results and will be reflected beginning with first quarter 2023 reporting. More information on these changes and a full reconciliation of certain historical revised key measures of performance and metrics can be found in the fourth quarter 2022 Financial Supplement located on Assurant’s Investor Relations website: https://ir.assurant.com/investor/default.aspx.

References to net income, including to net income per diluted share, throughout this press release refer to net income from continuing operations. Some of the metrics throughout this press release are non-GAAP measures of performance. A full reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure can be found in the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section.

Full-Year 2022 Summary

  • GAAP net income decreased 54 percent to $276.6 million versus prior year period, while net income per diluted share decreased 50 percent to $5.05
  • Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes2, increased 1 percent to $1,128.3 million, or 3 percent on a constant currency basis5
  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share4, increased 11 percent to $13.61
  • Holding company liquidity was $446 million
  • Share repurchases and common stock dividends totaled $718 million, including the return of net proceeds from the sale of Global Preneed

2023 Outlook

The company expects:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes6, to increase low single-digits, driven by improved performance in Global Housing and more modest growth in Global Lifestyle.
  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share6, growth rate to be lower than Adjusted EBITDA growth due to increased depreciation expense and a higher effective tax rate.

    Note: The metrics included within the company’s outlook are non-GAAP financial measures and the company believes that it cannot, without unreasonable efforts, forecast certain information needed to reconcile to the GAAP measures, the probable significance of which cannot be determined.

Additional details regarding key financial metrics are included in the Financial Supplement located on Assurant’s Investor Relations website: https://ir.assurant.com/investor/default.aspx

Fourth Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results

  • GAAP net income decreased 45 percent to $68.1 million, compared to fourth quarter 2021 of $124.0 million. The decline was primarily due to a $41.8 million after-tax charge related to the company’s previously announced restructuring plan, as well as net unrealized losses from Assurant Ventures.
  • GAAP net incomeper diluted share decreased 41 percent to $1.27 compared to fourth quarter 2021 of $2.15. The decrease was primarily driven by the factors noted above.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1increased 9 percent compared to the prior year period, as growth in segment earnings was partially offset by $17.6 million of higher pre-tax reportable catastrophes. Excluding reportable catastrophes, Adjusted EBITDA2 increased 15 percent to $296.3 million, or 19 percent on a constant currency basis5, primarily due to improved profitability from lender-placed insurance in Global Housing, as well as higher contributions from Connected Living in Global Lifestyle.
  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share4, increased 24 percent to $3.56, primarily from higher segment earnings as noted above, and prior period share repurchases.
  • Net earned premiums, fees and other income from the Global Lifestyle and Global Housing segments totaled $2.54 billion compared to $2.48 billion in fourth quarter 2021, up 3 percent or 5 percent on a constant currency basis5, mainly from Global Automotive growth within Global Lifestyle and increases in lender-placed within Global Housing.

Full-Year 2022 Consolidated Results

  • GAAP net income decreased 54 percent to $276.6 million, compared to full-year 2021 net income of $602.9 million. The decline was primarily driven by a net decrease in unrealized gains to unrealized losses from Assurant Ventures, net realized losses from sales of fixed maturity securities in 2022, and a decrease from non-core operations.
  • GAAP net incomeper diluted share decreased 50 percent to $5.05, compared to full-year 2021 of $10.03. The decrease was primarily driven by the factors noted above.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1decreased 1 percent compared to the prior year period, primarily due to $16.5 million of higher pre-tax reportable catastrophes. Excluding reportable catastrophes, Adjusted EBITDA2 increased 1 percent to $1,128.3 million, or 3 percent on a constant currency basis5, as growth in Global Lifestyle was partially offset by a decline in Global Housing, mainly from higher non-catastrophe loss experience including higher claims severity related to inflation.
  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share4, increased 11 percent to $13.61, mainly driven by share repurchases, including the return of net proceeds from the sale of Global Preneed, as well as lower tax expenses, including a $9 million one-time benefit in first quarter 2022.
  • Net earned premiums, fees and other income from the Global Lifestyle and Global Housing segments totaled $9.95 billion compared to $9.68 billion for the prior year period, up 3 percent, or 4 percent on a constant currency basis5, primarily due to Global Automotive growth within Global Lifestyle as well as lender-placed growth within Global Housing.

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 6 percent compared to the fourth quarter 2021, or 12 percent on a constant currency basis5. The increase was driven by Connected Living and higher net investment income, partially offset by weaker performance in Asia Pacific and Europe, including the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange, as well as an increase in claims costs within Global Automotive. Connected Living benefited from reduced mobile service and repair expenses compared to the prior year period and a modest increase in North American mobile subscribers.

    Full-year 2022 Adjusted EBITDAincreased 7 percent compared to 2021, or 11 percent on a constant currency basis5. The increase was driven by growth across U.S. Connected Living and Global Automotive, partially offset by weaker performance in Europe and Asia Pacific, including the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. Growth in Connected Living reflected increased mobile subscribers in North America and more favorable mobile loss experience. Global Automotive increased primarily from higher investment income and favorable loss experience in select ancillary products. For the year, segment results included $24.1 million of income from real estate and a $11.2 million one-time client contract benefit.
  • Net earned premiums, fees and other income increased 1 percent compared to fourth quarter 2021, or 3 percent on a constant currency basis5, compared to fourth quarter 2021, driven by strong prior period sales in Global Automotive. Connected Living decreased mainly from runoff mobile programs, partially offset by mobile subscriber growth in North America.

    Full-year 2022net earned premiums, fees and other income increased 3 percent compared to 2021, or 4 percent on a constant currency basis5, primarily due to the factors noted above. In-store mobile service and repair contributed $148.4 million of fee income, and as previously announced, is not expected to continue in 2023.

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 11 percent compared to the fourth quarter 2021 due to the factors described below, partially offset by a $17.8 million increase in reportable catastrophes from winter storms and Hurricane Nicole. Excluding reportable catastrophes, Adjusted EBITDA2 increased 25 percent primarily due to higher average insured values, premium rates and lender-placed policies in-force. In addition, the segment benefited from ongoing expense initiatives. The increase was partially offset by $14.8 million of higher non-catastrophe loss experience across all major products and increased catastrophe reinsurance costs.

    Full-year2022 Adjusted EBITDA decreased 15 percent compared to 2021 primarily driven by $17.6 million of higher pre-tax reportable catastrophes. Excluding reportable catastrophes, Adjusted EBITDA2 decreased 7 percent due to declines in multifamily housing and specialty products mainly from higher non-catastrophe loss experience. Lender-placed increased modestly, as strong revenue growth and improved profitability in fourth quarter more than offset higher non-catastrophe loss experience throughout the year. Global Housing results were also impacted by increased catastrophe reinsurance costs.
  • Net earned premiums, fees and other income growth accelerated in the quarter, increasing 10 percent year-over-year, largely from lender-placed. This was driven by higher average insured values, premium rates and policies in-force, including contributions from a new client onboarded in the quarter.

    Full-year 2022 net earned premiums, fees and other income increased 4 percent compared to the prior year 2021, primarily due to the factors noted above.

Based on current market conditions, for full-year 2023, the company expects:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes, to increase by low single-digits, with results improving as the year progresses, led by improved performance in Global Housing and more modest growth in Global Lifestyle.
    • Global Housing Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes, is expected to grow from revised 2022 results of $417.4 million. Growth to be driven by improved performance in Homeowners reflecting higher lender-placed net earned premiums along with expense savings to be realized over the course of the year. Higher 2023 catastrophe reinsurance program costs as well as continued elevated non-catastrophe loss experience across all lines of business, particularly in the first half of 2023, are expected to impact the segment.
    • Global Lifestyle Adjusted EBITDA, is expected to grow modestly from revised 2022 results of $809.4 million. Modest growth to be driven by Connected Living and Global Automotive, including contributions from new and existing client programs and expense savings realized over the course of the year. Lower contributions from international, including the impact of continued foreign exchange headwinds, are expected to pressure results particularly in the first half of 2023.
    • Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA loss is expected to be approximately $105 million as the company continues to drive expense leverage.

  • Adjusted earnings, excluding reportable catastrophes, per diluted share growth rateis expected to be lower than Adjusted EBITDA, excluding reportable catastrophes growth due to higher depreciation expense of approximately $114 million and a higher effective tax rate of approximately 22 to 24 percent, following a $9 million benefit in 2022. Interest expense is expected to be approximately $110 million, in-line with 2022.

  • Business segment dividends to approximate 65% of segment Adjusted EBITDA, including reportable catastrophes, which takes into account the previously announced restructuring plan. This is subject to the business and investment portfolio performance, and rating agency and regulatory capital requirements.

  • Given market conditions, capital deployment priorities to focus on maintaining a strong financial position, supporting organic growth and paying common stock dividends, subject to Board approval. In light of the continued uncertain macroeconomic environment, the company will look to preserve capital deployment flexibility near-term, and therefore, expects any share repurchases would occur in the second half of the year. As visibility in the broader environment improves, the company is committed to re-evaluate overall levels and timing of capital deployment.

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.

 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).

 Constant Currency: Represents a non-GAAP financial measure. Excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates used in the translation of the income statement because they can be volatile. These amounts are calculated by translating the comparable prior period results at the weighted average foreign currency exchange rates used in the current period, and it excludes the impact of foreign exchange transaction gains (losses) associated with the remeasurement of non-functional currencies. The company believes this information allows investors to identify the significance of changes in foreign currency exchange rates in period-to-period comparisons.

 The metrics included within the company’s outlook each constitute forward-looking information and the company believes that it cannot, without unreasonable efforts, forecast certain information needed to reconcile such forward-looking information to the most comparable GAAP measure, the probable significance of which cannot be determined. 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 $110 million, $114 million and $71 million, respectively. Many of the other 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.
