Genworth Financial Announces Second Quarter 2018 Results

Net Income Of $190 Million And Adjusted Operating Income Of $200 Million

PR Newswire

RICHMOND, Va., July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

  • As Announced On June 9, 2018, The Committee On Foreign Investment In The United States (CFIUS) Completed Its Review Of The Proposed Transaction Between Genworth And China Oceanwide Holdings Group Co., Ltd (Oceanwide) And Concluded That There Are No Unresolved National Security Concerns
  • U.S. Mortgage Insurance (MI) Adjusted Operating Income Of $137 Million Which Included A Favorable $22 Million After-Tax Reserve Adjustment
  • U.S. MI's PMIERs1 Sufficiency Ratio At 129 Percent, In Excess Of $700 Million Above Requirements Following A $50 Million Dividend
  • Strong Loss Ratio Performance And Capital Levels For Canada MI
  • U.S. Life Insurance Adjusted Operating Income Of $57 Million Compared To Adjusted Operating Income Of $39 Million In The Prior Year
  • Holding Company Cash And Liquid Assets Of $622 Million; Company Redeemed Its May 2018 Debt Of $597 Million

Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE:GNW) today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The company reported net income2 of $190 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018, compared with net income of $202 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted operating income3 for the second quarter of 2018 was $200 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared with adjusted operating income of $151 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

Genworth's effective tax rate for the quarter was approximately 31 percent.  Beginning January 1, 2018, the company taxed its domestic businesses at the new enacted tax rate of 21 percent.  However, gains on forward starting swaps settled prior to the change in the corporate tax rate will continue to be tax effected at 35 percent as they are amortized into net investment income. In addition, this quarter's result also includes a provisional tax expense related to a revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities on foreign subsidiaries in light of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Strategic Update

Genworth and Oceanwide continue to work towards closing their previously announced proposed transaction as quickly as possible.

During the quarter, CFIUS completed its review of the proposed transaction and concluded that there are no unresolved national security concerns.  In connection with the CFIUS review of the proposed transaction, Genworth and Oceanwide entered into a mitigation agreement which, among other things, requires Genworth to use a U.S.-based, third-party service provider to manage and protect the personal data of Genworth's U.S. policyholders.

As previously announced, the parties are seeking approval of the transaction without unstacking Genworth Life and Annuity Insurance Company from Genworth Life Insurance Company, and Genworth's debt obligations due May 2018 were redeemed with the proceeds from a term loan and cash on hand.  As a result, Oceanwide and Genworth are developing a new capital investment plan whereby Oceanwide would contribute an aggregate of $1.5 billion to Genworth over time following the closing of the transaction.  The contribution would be used to further improve Genworth's financial stability, which may include retiring Genworth's debt due in 2020 and 2021 or enabling future growth opportunities.

Given these updates to the proposed transaction, Genworth and Oceanwide continue to provide regulators with updated information to facilitate their review of the transaction. The parties therefore entered into a fifth waiver and agreement on June 28, 2018, extending the deadline of each party's right to terminate the previously announced transaction to August 15, 2018.

The closing of the proposed transaction remains subject to the receipt of required regulatory approvals in the U.S., China, and other international jurisdictions and other closing conditions.

"I am pleased with Genworth's continued strong performance while we make significant progress towards closing the transaction with Oceanwide," said Tom McInerney, president and CEO of Genworth. "We are working as quickly as possible to secure the necessary regulatory approvals in order to create the greatest and most certain value for our stockholders."

LU Zhiqiang, chairman of Oceanwide, added: "Oceanwide remains committed to the transaction, which would provide Oceanwide with the opportunity to enhance our global insurance expertise and bring better insurance market solutions to China."

Net income in the second quarter of 2018 was impacted by net investment losses, net of taxes and other adjustments, of $10 million in the quarter. Net income in the second quarter of 2017 benefitted from net investment gains, net of taxes and other adjustments, of $51 million.

Net investment income was $828 million in the quarter, up from $804 million in the prior quarter and up from $801 million in the prior year.  Net investment income increased versus the prior quarter and prior year due to higher investment yields, limited partnership income, and inflation impact on U.S. Government Treasury Inflation Protection Securities. The reported yield and the core yield3 for the quarter were 4.70 percent and 4.64 percent, respectively.

Adjusted operating income (loss) results by business line are summarized in the table below:

U.S. MI reported adjusted operating income of $137 million, compared with $111 million in the prior quarter and $91 million in the prior year.  The loss ratio in the current quarter was negative eight percent, down 17 points sequentially and down ten points from the prior year.  Losses in the quarter included a favorable $28 million pre-tax loss reserve adjustment, which reduced the loss ratio by 15 points.  This compares to a favorable $15 million pre-tax loss reserve adjustment in the prior year which reduced that period's loss ratio by eight points.  In addition, losses in the quarter benefitted from lower new delinquencies, continued strong cure performance, and favorable aging.  Results in the quarter also benefitted from a lower corporate tax rate compared to the prior year.  There were no material incremental incurred losses from areas impacted by hurricanes in the quarter, and delinquencies in those areas are curing in line with the company's original loss expectations. 

Flow New Insurance Written (NIW) of $11.4 billion increased 27 percent from the prior quarter primarily from a seasonally larger purchase originations market partially offset by lower refinance originations, and increased 16 percent versus the prior year primarily from a larger mortgage insurance market.  During the second quarter of 2018, the company's concentration of single premium flow NIW was 15 percent, down four points from the prior quarter and the prior year as it continues its selective participation in this market.  U.S. MI's flow insurance in force increased 12 percent versus the prior year driven primarily by strong NIW and persistency.

Canada MI reported adjusted operating income of $46 million versus $49 million in the prior quarter and $41 million in the prior year. The loss ratio in the quarter was 15 percent, up two points sequentially primarily from a higher concentration of Alberta delinquencies.  The loss ratio was up 11 points compared to the prior year from lower favorable reserve development and an increase in new delinquencies, net of cures.

Flow NIW was up 52 percent4 sequentially primarily from a seasonally larger originations market and down five percent4 from the prior year primarily from a smaller market size from regulatory changes and housing affordability pressure.

Australia MI reported adjusted operating income of $22 million, compared to $19 million in the prior quarter and $12 million in the prior year.  Results for the quarter were favorably impacted by approximately $4 million after-tax as a result of increased recognition of premiums driven by higher policy cancellations.  Results also increased versus the prior year due to the impact of the premium earnings pattern review that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The loss ratio in the quarter was 28 percent, down two points sequentially from higher earned premiums due to an increase in policy cancellations and down six points compared to the prior year primarily due to an increase in earned premiums mainly due to the premium earnings pattern review.

Flow NIW was up 12 percent4 sequentially from a larger market size and down 12 percent4 from the prior year primarily from lower market penetration attributable to a change in customer mix.

Long Term Care Insurance

Long term care insurance reported adjusted operating income of $22 million, compared with an adjusted operating loss of $32 million in the prior quarter and adjusted operating income of $33 million in the prior year. Results versus the prior quarter reflect higher earnings from the acquired block, favorable existing claim experience and increased investment income.  Compared to the prior year, results reflect growth in new claims severity and frequency, partially offset by higher earnings from the acquired block and increased investment income.  Results in the prior year were favorably impacted by reserve corrections, net of profits followed by losses reserves, associated with recorded initial claim dates of $13 million after-tax.  Current and prior quarter results also include an incremental tax expense of $6 million and $5 million, respectively, above the 21 percent corporate tax rate related to the amortization of forward starting swap gains settled prior to the change in the corporate tax rate.

Life Insurance

Life insurance reported adjusted operating income of $4 million, compared with an adjusted operating loss of $1 million in both the prior quarter and prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter reflect favorable mortality in the company's term life insurance block of business, partially offset by higher amortization of deferred acquisition costs (DAC) primarily associated with lapses that have been higher than originally assumed in the term life insurance blocks entering their post-level premium periods.  Results in the prior year included a negative impact of $14 million after-tax, which was the net effect of a charge from model corrections related to updating mortality tables for term conversion policies that was partially offset by a net favorable refinement related to reinsurance rates. Results versus the prior year also reflect lower in force earnings in the term life insurance block of business from increased reinsurance as well as runoff of the block.  The company also continues to experience unfavorable mortality in its universal and term universal life insurance products.

Fixed Annuities

Fixed annuities reported adjusted operating income of $31 million, compared with $28 million in the prior quarter and $7 million in the prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter reflect higher variable investment income partially offset by less favorable mortality.  Results in the prior year included a $10 million after-tax charge for loss recognition testing on the single premium immediate annuity block related to lower interest rates.  Results versus the prior year also reflect favorable mortality and lower taxes.    

Runoff

Runoff reported adjusted operating income of $13 million, compared with $10 million in the prior quarter and $11 million in the prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter and prior year reflect favorable mortality in the corporate owned life insurance product.  Results also reflect favorable equity market performance supporting the company's variable annuity business versus the prior quarter and less favorable equity market performance versus the prior year. 

Corporate And Other

Corporate and Other reported an adjusted operating loss of $75 million, compared with $59 million in the prior quarter and $43 million in the prior year.  Results in the current quarter include a provisional tax expense of $19 million related to a revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities on foreign subsidiaries.  Given the change in the corporate tax rate, results in the current quarter also reflect a lower tax benefit offsetting the Corporate and Other pre-tax loss compared to the prior year.

Key Points

  • U.S. MI's PMIERs sufficiency ratio increased to 129 percent as an increase in operating cash flows and lower non-performing required assets were partially offset by a $50 million dividend payment and higher required assets associated with strong new business written. The PMIERs sufficiency ratio impact from hurricane delinquency inventory declined from four points to two points as cures from those areas continue as expected;
  • Canada MI's MCT ratio as of June 30, 2018 is estimated to be 170 percent, above both the regulatory minimum requirement of 150 percent and our operating range of 160 to 165 percent;
  • Australia MI's PCA ratio increased sequentially to 190 percent driven primarily by continued portfolio seasoning;
  • The holding company ended the quarter with $622 million of cash and liquid assets. During the quarter the company redeemed its debt maturing in May 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures entitled "adjusted operating income (loss)" and "adjusted operating income (loss) per share." Adjusted operating income (loss) per share is derived from adjusted operating income (loss). The chief operating decision maker evaluates segment performance and allocates resources on the basis of adjusted operating income (loss). The company defines adjusted operating income (loss) as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effects of income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, net investment gains (losses), goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions, restructuring costs and infrequent or unusual non-operating items. Gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are defined as gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of non-recourse funding obligations, early termination fees for other financing restructuring and/or resulting gains (losses) on reinsurance restructuring for certain blocks of business. The company excludes net investment gains (losses) and infrequent or unusual non-operating items because the company does not consider them to be related to the operating performance of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities. A component of the company's net investment gains (losses) is the result of impairments, the size and timing of which can vary significantly depending on market credit cycles. In addition, the size and timing of other investment gains (losses) can be subject to the company's discretion and are influenced by market opportunities, as well as asset-liability matching considerations. Goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions and restructuring costs are also excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) because, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. Infrequent or unusual non-operating items are also excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) if, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends.

While some of these items may be significant components of net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the company believes that adjusted operating income (loss) and measures that are derived from or incorporate adjusted operating income (loss), including adjusted operating income (loss) per share on a basic and diluted basis, are appropriate measures that are useful to investors because they identify the income (loss) attributable to the ongoing operations of the business. Management also uses adjusted operating income (loss) as a basis for determining awards and compensation for senior management and to evaluate performance on a basis comparable to that used by analysts. However, the items excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) have occurred in the past and could, and in some cases will, recur in the future. Adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted operating income (loss) per share on a basic and diluted basis are not substitutes for net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders or net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders per share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of adjusted operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was signed into law. The TCJA reduced the U.S. corporate federal income tax rate to 21 percent effective for taxable years beginning on January 1, 2018. Therefore, beginning in the first quarter of 2018, the company assumed a tax rate of 21 percent on certain adjustments to reconcile net income available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders and adjusted operating income and in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance (unless otherwise indicated). In the prior year, the company assumed a tax rate of 35 percent, the previous U.S. corporate federal income tax rate prior to the enactment of the TCJA, on certain adjustments to reconcile net income available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders and adjusted operating income and in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance. These adjustments are also net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests and net investment gains (losses) are adjusted for DAC and other intangible amortization and certain benefit reserves.

There were no infrequent or unusual items excluded from adjusted operating income during the periods presented.

The tables at the end of this press release provide a reconciliation of net income available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders to adjusted operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, as well as for the three months ended March 31, 2018, and reflect adjusted operating income (loss) as determined in accordance with accounting guidance related to segment reporting.

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure entitled "core yield" as a measure of investment yield. The company defines core yield as the investment yield adjusted for items that do not reflect the underlying performance of the investment portfolio. Management believes that analysis of core yield enhances understanding of the investment yield of the company. However, core yield is not a substitute for investment yield determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of core yield may differ from the definitions used by other companies. A reconciliation of core yield to reported U.S. GAAP yield is included in a table at the end of this press release.

Definition of Selected Operating Performance Measures

The company reports selected operating performance measures including "sales" and "insurance in force" or "risk in force" which are commonly used in the insurance industry as measures of operating performance.

Management regularly monitors and reports sales metrics as a measure of volume of new business generated in a period. Sales refer to new insurance written for mortgage insurance. The company considers new insurance written to be a measure of the company's operating performance because it represents a measure of new sales of insurance policies during a specified period, rather than a measure of the company's revenues or profitability during that period.

Management regularly monitors and reports insurance in force and risk in force.  Insurance in force for the company's mortgage insurance business is a measure of the aggregate original loan balance for outstanding insurance policies as of the respective reporting date.  Risk in force for the company's U.S. mortgage insurance business is based on the coverage percentage applied to the estimated current outstanding loan balance.  The company considers insurance in force and risk in force to be measures of its operating performance because they represent measures of the size of its business at a specific date which will generate revenues and profits in a future period, rather than measures of its revenues or profitability during that period.

Management also regularly monitors and reports a loss ratio for the company's businesses. For the mortgage insurance businesses, the loss ratio is the ratio of benefits and other changes in policy reserves to net earned premiums. The company considers the loss ratio to be a measure of underwriting performance in these businesses and help to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the businesses.

These operating performance measures enable the company to compare its operating performance across periods without regard to revenues or profitability related to policies or contracts sold in prior periods or from investments or other sources.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

  • risks relating to estimates, assumptions and valuations including: inadequate reserves and the need to increase reserves (including as a result of any changes the company may make to its assumptions, methodologies or otherwise in connection with periodic or other reviews); inaccurate models; deviations from the company's estimates and actuarial assumptions or other reasons in its long-term care insurance, life insurance and/or annuity businesses; accelerated amortization of deferred acquisition costs (DAC) and present value of future profits (PVFP) (including as a result of any changes it may make to its assumptions, methodologies or otherwise in connection with periodic or other reviews); adverse impact on the company's financial results as a result of projected profits followed by projected losses (as is currently the case with its long-term care insurance business); adverse impact on the company's results of operations and changes in valuation of fixed maturity and equity securities;
