ProSight Reports 2020 Second Quarter Results

Second Quarter Net Income from Continuing Operations of $17.3 million, $0.39 per Diluted Share and Adjusted Operating Income(1) of $16.9 million, $0.39 per Diluted Share.

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Aug. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ProSight Global, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/213414925/composite PROS -0.08% (ProSight) today reported results for the second quarter of 2020. 

Highlights for the three months ended June 30, 2020 include:  

  • Record net income from continuing operations of $17.3 million and adjusted operating income [(] [1] [)] of $16.9 million with annualized return on equity ("ROE") of 12.9% and adjusted operating ROE [(] [2] [)] of 12.6%.

  • Record diluted book value per share ("BVPS") of $12.84 compared to $10.73 as of March 31, 2020. Book value per share was $12.01 as of December 31, 2019.

  • Rate execution of 10.5% excluding workers comp and 8.8% including workers comp with acceleration throughout the quarter.

  • Combined ratio of 99.6% compared to 98.1% for the second quarter of 2019, representing the tenth consecutive quarter of underwriting profit at ProSight.

  • Loss ratio of 61.9% compared to 62.8% (61.7% adjusted for the effect of WAQS [ (] [3] [)] ) for the second quarter of 2019. The current quarter includes 2.0 points of catastrophe losses from civil unrest vs 1.5 points in the second quarter of 2019.

  • Expense ratio of 37.7% compared to 35.3% (36.4% adjusted for the effect of WAQS [ (] [3] [)] ) for the second quarter of 2019. The current quarter includes $1.5 million, or 83 basis points, of COVID-19-related allowance for bad debt and reflects reduced earned premium associated with the impact of COVID-19. Excluding the $1.5 million allowance for bad debt, total general and administrative expenses were down 4.2% compared to the second quarter of 2019.

  • Gross written premiums ("GWP") for our customer segments [ (] [4] [)] decreased in line with our expectations by 19.9% to $184.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2019, due to the impact of COVID-19 on several of our niches.

  • Closed on new credit facility that will refinance our existing debt on favorable terms upon maturity in November 2020.

From CEO & President Larry Hannon:  

"Our thoughts are with all of those struggling from the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and we continue to stand with our Black friends, colleagues, and members of our community that are fighting for justice and equality.  At ProSight, we are thankful for the outstanding effort of our employees, and the support of our customers and distribution partners during these difficult times.  

"This was a strong quarter. We produced an underwriting profit, generated a double-digit ROE, achieved a new milestone in book value per share, closed on a new credit facility which will refinance our debt on attractive terms, and made progress on several initiatives that we expect will accelerate our growth and profitability in 2021.  Our rate execution was excellent in the quarter and the trend has continued into the third quarter.

"Our underwriting, risk selection and expense management allowed us to remain solidly profitable and grow our book value per share. We are executing well and expect to have a solid second half of the year with an improvement in our gross written premium versus the second quarter." 

Updated Outlook:  

"Looking at the third quarter and balance of 2020, we have somewhat greater visibility into our near-term operating results. This update represents our best estimates as of today for the full year: 

  • Customer Segment Gross Written Premium: 5-10% decline from 2019 versus the 10-20% communicated at the end of the first quarter. This excludes the decline from the previously announced exit from excess workers compensation.

  • Net Loss Ratio: Potential for 0 to 1.5-point increase from COVID-19 related claims and expenses in the current accident year loss ratio versus the up-to-3-point increase we communicated at the end of the first quarter.

  • Expenses: Continued higher costs from bad debt provisioning given state-mandated deferrals of collections and cancellations coupled with the economic impact of COVID-19 on some of our insureds.

  • Net Investment Income: We expect our fixed income portfolio, excluding limited partnerships, to yield approximately 3% for 2020, consistent with the 3% we communicated at the end of the first quarter. Net investment income volatility for the remainder of 2020 remains possible from our limited partnership investments."

Results of Operations for the three months ended June 30, 2020:  

Net income from continuing operations was$17.3 million,or $0.39 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $8.7 million,or $0.22per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted operating income  [(1)]  was $16.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $14.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019. 

GWP including Other  [(3)] , decreased 20.7% for the second quarter of 2020 when compared to the second quarter of 2019. GWP  [(3)]  from customer segments was$184.2 millionfor the second quarter of 2020 compared to$230.0 millionfor the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 19.9%, primarily due to the impact of COVID-19 on our Transportation and Media & Entertainment customer segments. Other GWP  [(3)]  were $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $5.0 million for the second quarter of 2019, the decrease driven by the timing of our exit from excess workers' compensation.  

Underwriting income [ (1)] was$0.7 millionfor the second quarter of 2020 compared to$3.8 millionfor the second quarter of 2019. The combined ratio for the second quarter of 2020 was 99.6% compared to 98.1% for the second quarter of 2019.  The decrease in underwriting income  [(1)]  was due to reduced earned premium and bad debt expense attributable to COVID-19: 

The expense ratio was 37.7% for the second quarter of 2020 compared to 35.3% in the second quarter of 2019, with the increase driven by reduced earned premium, an increase in our allowance for bad debt attributable to COVID-19, and a ceding commission benefit from our Whole Account Quota Share ("WAQS") reinsurance agreements in the second quarter of 2019. The policy acquisition expense ratio was 23.1% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 22.5% in the second quarter of 2019. The general & administrative expense ratio, which includes the bad debt allowance, was 14.6% in the second quarter of 2020 compared to 12.8% in the second quarter of 2019.   

The loss ratio was 61.9% for the second quarter of 2020 compared to 62.8% for the second quarter of 2019.     

The current accident year loss ratio, excluding catastrophe losses and prior year development, for the second quarter of 2020 was 59.8% compared to 62.6% in the second quarter of 2019.   

The current accident year loss ratio for the second quarter of 2020 includes $3.6 million (2.0 percentage points) of catastrophe losses due to civil unrest. The current accident year loss ratio for the second quarter of 2019 includes $3.0 million (1.5 percentage points) of catastrophe losses due to weather events. 

The loss ratio for the second quarter of 2020 included $0.3 million (0.1 percentage points) of unfavorable prior accident year loss development compared to $2.7 million (1.3 percentage points) of favorable prior accident year loss development in the second quarter of 2019. 

Net investment income increased by 36.7% to$23.8 millionfor the second quarter of 2020, compared to$17.4 million for the second quarter of 2019.  The increase in net investment income was driven by unrealized gains from our limited partnerships and growth in the book value of the investment portfolio of 12.7% to $2.3 billion, partially offset by a decline in investment yields on fixed maturity securities. 

Realized investment gains, net of realized losses, for the second quarter of 2020 were $1.9 million compared to $0.1 million for the second quarter of 2019 and include an increase to our credit loss allowance of $1.5 million. 

Total stockholders' equity was $586.1 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $543.0 million as of December 31, 2019.  Tangible stockholders' equity [ (5) ] was $556.9 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $513.8 million as of December 31, 2019. The increases in total stockholders' equity and tangible stockholders' equity  [(5)]  were driven by $24.6 million of net income in the first six months of 2020 and an increase in other comprehensive income of $15.3 million, driven by net unrealized gains on investment securities during the second quarter of 2020.  

Fully diluted book value per share [ ] grew by 6.9% to $12.84 at June 30, 2020, compared to $12.01 at December 31, 2019. Fully diluted tangible book value per share  [(] [5] [)]  increased by 7.4% to $12.21 at June 30, 2020, compared to $11.37 at December 31, 2019.

The effective date of the WAQS was April 1, 2017. During 2018 and following the transition of the U.S. business back to New York Marine, the WAQS were terminated. Effective January 1, 2020, the WAQS was commuted at an amount equal to ceded reserves. The effect of the WAQS on our results of operations is primarily reflected in our ceded written premiums, losses and LAE, as well as our underwriting, acquisition and insurance expenses.

(1) Net retention is a non-GAAP measure. We define net retention as the ratio of net written premiums to gross written premiums.
(2) Underwriting income is a non-GAAP measure.  See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".
(3) Adjusted loss ratio and adjusted expense ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. We define adjusted loss ratio and adjusted expense ratio as the corresponding ratio  excluding the effects of the WAQS. We use these adjusted ratios as internal performance measures in the management of our operations because we believe they give our management and other users of our financial information useful insight into our results of operations and our underlying business performance. Our adjusted loss and LAE ratio, adjusted expense ratio and adjusted combined ratio should not be viewed as substitutes for our loss and LAE ratio, expense ratio and combined ratio, respectively.
(4) The effect of prior year reserve development is included within losses and LAE.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Underwriting income is a non-GAAP financial measure that we believe is useful in evaluating our underwriting performance without regard to investment income. Underwriting income represents the pre-tax profitability of our insurance operations and is derived by subtracting losses and LAE, and underwriting, acquisition and insurance expenses from net earned premiums. We use underwriting income as an internal performance measure in the management of our operations because we believe it gives us and users of our financial information useful insight into our results of operations and our underlying business performance. Underwriting income should not be considered in isolation or viewed as a substitute for net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate underwriting income differently.

Net income for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 reconciles to underwriting income as follows:

Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as an internal performance measure in the management of our operations because we believe it gives our management and other users of our financial information useful insight into our results of operations and underlying business performance, by excluding items that are not part of our underlying profitability drivers or likely to re-occur in the foreseeable future. Adjusted operating income should not be considered in isolation or viewed as a substitute for net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate adjusted operating income differently.

Net income for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 reconciles to adjusted operating income as follows:

Tangible stockholders' equity is a non-GAAP financial measure that we use as an internal performance measure to evaluate the strength of our balance sheet and to compare returns relative to this measure. We define tangible stockholders' equity as stockholders' equity less goodwill and net intangible assets. Tangible stockholders' equity should not be considered in isolation or viewed as a substitute for stockholders' equity calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate tangible stockholders' equity differently.

Stockholders' equity at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 reconciles to tangible stockholders' equity as follows:
