(1) In order to reconcile net income (loss) to the core income (loss) measure, we included the tax impact of all adjustments using the effective rate at the end of each period.

(2) Core income (loss) and core income (loss) per diluted share, measures that are not based on GAAP, are reconciled above to net income (loss) and net income (loss) per diluted share, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Additional information regarding non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release can be found in the "Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures" section, below.

"It was a tough quarter for us," said John Forney, President and CEO of UPC Insurance. "Elevated levels of cat losses and the last gasp of the AOB industry in Florida combined to overshadow the continued strong growth and performance in most of our states and lines of business. Recent and pending rate increases and other initiatives should help us get back on track and show the true earnings power of our business."

Quarterly Financial Results

Net income attributable to the Company for the second quarter of 2019 was $(2.9) million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, compared to $14.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018. The decrease in net income was primarily due to an increase in loss and loss adjustment expenses (LAE) and policy acquisition costs, partly offset by an increase in net premiums earned during the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018.

The Company's total gross written premium increased by $65.1 million, or 16.9%, to $449.8 million for the second quarter of 2019, from $384.7 million for the second quarter of 2018, primarily reflecting organic growth in new and renewal business generated in all regions. The breakdown of the quarter-over-quarter changes in both direct written and assumed premiums by region and gross written premium by line of business are shown in the table below.

(1) "Gulf" is comprised of Hawaii, Louisiana and Texas; "Northeast" is comprised of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island; and "Southeast" is comprised of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

(2) Assumed premium written for 2019 and 2018 primarily included commercial property business assumed from unaffiliated insurers.

Loss and LAE increased by $27.7 million, or 31.2%, to $116.3 million for the second quarter of 2019, from $88.6 million for the second quarter of 2018. Loss and LAE expense as a percentage of net earned premiums increased 9.4 points to 61.1% for the second quarter of 2019, compared to 51.7% for the second quarter of 2018. Excluding catastrophe losses and reserve development, the Company's gross underlying loss and LAE ratio for the second quarter of 2019 would have been 25.8%, an increase of 0.9 points from 24.9% during the second quarter of 2018.

Policy acquisition costs increased by $11.1 million, or 22.0%, to $61.6 million for the second quarter of 2019, from $50.5 million for the second quarter of 2018. The primary driver of the increase in costs was the managing general agent commissions related to commercial premiums and an increase in ceding commission income.

Operating and underwriting expenses increased by $1.5 million, or 15.5%, to $11.2 million for the second quarter of 2019, from $9.7 million for the second quarter of 2018, primarily due to increased investments in technology.

General and administrative expenses increased by $4.2 million, or 33.3%, to $16.8 million for the second quarter of 2019, from $12.6 million for the second quarter of 2018, primarily due to an increase in salaries and related benefits as the number of personnel has increased and an increase in cost of professional service fees.

Reinsurance Costs as a Percentage of Earned Premium

Excluding the Company's business for which it cedes 100% of the risk of loss, reinsurance costs in the second quarter of 2019 were 40.8% of gross premiums earned, compared to 38.8% of gross premiums earned for the second quarter of 2018. The increase in this ratio was driven by a decrease in gross premiums earned in the second quarter of 2019, compared to 2018. Additionally, the Company modified terms of its quota share agreement in 2019 to include its subsidiary, Family Security Insurance Company, Inc. in addition to its subsidiary United Property & Casualty Insurance Company. Finally, the ceding percentage increased from 20.0% in 2018 to 22.5% in 2019.

Investment Portfolio Highlights

The Company's cash and investment holdings increased 18.2% to $1.3 billion at June 30, 2019 from $1.1 billion at December 31, 2018. UPC Insurance's cash and investment holdings consist of investments in U.S. government and agency securities, corporate debt and 100% investment grade money market instruments. Fixed maturities represented approximately 88.6% of total investments at June 30, 2019, compared to 90.6% at December 31, 2018. At June 30, 2019 our fixed maturity investments had a modified duration of 3.4 years, compared to 3.5 years at December 31, 2018.

Book Value Analysis

Book value per share increased 3.6% from $12.10 at December 31, 2018, to $12.54 at June 30, 2019. Underlying book value per share stayed consistent at $12.31 at both December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2019. An increase in the Company's accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI), drove the increase in our book value per share. As shown in the table below, removing the effect of AOCI provides for a consistent book value per share.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend payable on August 21, 2019, to stockholders of record on August 14, 2019.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures

We believe that investors' understanding of UPC Insurance's performance is enhanced by our disclosure of the following non-GAAP measures. Our methods for calculating these measures may differ from those used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited.

Core return on equity is a non-GAAP ratio calculated using non-GAAP measures. It is calculated by dividing the core income for the period by the average stockholders' equity for the trailing twelve months (or one quarter of such average, in the case of quarterly periods). Core income is an after-tax non-GAAP measure that is calculated by excluding from net income the effect of non-cash amortization of intangible assets, unrealized gains or losses on the Company's equity security investments and net realized gains or losses on the Company's investment portfolio. In the opinion of the Company's management, core income, core income per share and core return on equity are meaningful indicators to investors of the Company's underwriting and operating results, since the excluded items are not necessarily indicative of operating trends. Internally, the Company's management uses core income, core income per share and core return on equity to evaluate performance against historical results and establish financial targets on a consolidated basis. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is return on equity. The core return on equity measure should not be considered a substitute for return on equity and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Combined ratio excluding the effects of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development (underlying combined ratio) is a non-GAAP measure, which is computed by subtracting the effect of current year catastrophe losses and prior year development, from the combined ratio. The Company believes that this ratio is useful to investors and it is used by management to highlight the trends in the Company's business that may be obscured by current year catastrophe losses and prior year development. Current year catastrophe losses cause the Company's loss trends to vary significantly between periods as a result of their incidence of occurrence and magnitude, and can have a significant impact on the combined ratio. Prior year development is caused by unexpected loss development on historical reserves. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is the combined ratio. The underlying combined ratio should not be considered as a substitute for the combined ratio and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Net loss and LAE excluding the effects of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development (underlying loss and LAE) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by subtracting the effect of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development from net loss and LAE. The Company uses underlying loss and LAE figures to analyze the Company's loss trends that may be impacted by current year catastrophe losses and prior year development on the Company's reserves. As discussed previously, these two items can have a significant impact on the Company's loss trends in a given period. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net loss and LAE. The underlying loss and LAE measure should not be considered a substitute for net loss and LAE and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Net income excluding the effects of amortization of intangible assets, realized gains (losses) and unrealized gains (losses) on equity securities, net of tax (core income) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by adding amortization, net of tax, to net income and subtracting realized gains (losses) on our investment portfolio, net of tax, and unrealized gains (losses) on our equity securities, net of tax, from net income. Amortization expense is related to the amortization of intangible assets acquired through mergers and therefore the expense does not arise through normal operations. Investment portfolio gains (losses) and unrealized equity security gains (losses) vary independent of our operations. We believe it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing our performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net income. The core income measure should not be considered a substitute for net income and does not reflect the overall profitability of our business.

Book value per common share, excluding the impact of accumulated other comprehensive income (underlying book value per common share), is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by dividing common stockholders' equity after excluding accumulated other comprehensive income, by total common shares outstanding plus dilutive potential common shares outstanding. We use the trend in book value per common share, excluding the impact of accumulated other comprehensive income, in conjunction with book value per common share to identify and analyze the change in net worth attributable to management efforts between periods. We believe the non-GAAP measure is useful to investors because it eliminates the effect of interest rates that can fluctuate significantly from period to period and are generally driven by economic and financial factors which are not influenced by management. Book value per common share is the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Book value per common share, excluding the impact of accumulated other comprehensive income, should not be considered a substitute for book value per common share, and does not reflect the recorded net worth of our business.
