Business Wire

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Kemper Corporation (KMPR) reported today net income of $9.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $34.0 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013. Consolidated net operating income1 was $9.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $31.7 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013. Net operating income per diluted share decreased primarily from higher catastrophe losses and higher expenses as a percentage of earned premiums, partially offset by improved underlying property and casualty results.

1 Consolidated net operating income is an after-tax, non-GAAP financial measure. See “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for additional information.

“Kemper’s second quarter results reflect the tangible benefits from our actions to reposition the Property & Casualty segment. We generated a 3.6 percentage point improvement in our P&C segment’s underlying loss ratio, partially offsetting the $41 million after-tax of catastrophe losses,” commented Donald G. Southwell, Kemper’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased with the progress of the realignment announced in the first quarter. We continue to hear positive feedback from our agents and have already cross-appointed more than 125 agents.”

“The Life and Health segment’s earnings were pressured with lower earned premiums, higher expenses and the impact of the low interest rate environment. We are seeing positive traction from our investments to grow Kemper Senior Solutions and Kemper Benefits, which are helping to offset the anticipated decline in hospitalization products that are subject to healthcare reform,” said Southwell.

“I’m pleased with our progress on returning capital to shareholders. In addition to the $13 million in dividends we paid in the quarter, we repurchased more than $68 million of common stock at attractive prices, substantially completing our $300 million authorization. Yesterday, Kemper’s Board of Directors authorized a new share repurchase program of $300 million,” concluded Southwell.

Capital

During the second quarter of 2014, Kemper repurchased more than 1.9 million shares of its common stock at a total cost of $68.3 million, or $35.72 per share, and paid dividends of $13.3 million. During the first half of 2014, Kemper repurchased 2.1 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $76.6 million and paid dividends of $26.6 million.

Kemper ended the quarter with a book value per share excluding net unrealized gains on fixed maturities of $35.32, up 2 percent from $34.49 at the end of 2013. Book value per share was $39.98, up 8 percent from $36.86 at the end of 2013, largely from the impact of lower yields on the fixed maturities portfolio and net income.

Revenues

Total revenues were $542.5 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $588.9 million in 2013. Revenues decreased primarily from a $36.4 million decrease in earned premiums at the Property & Casualty Insurance segment. The Property & Casualty Insurance segment continues to feel the impact of lower new and renewal business due to the profit improvement actions taken over the past couple of years. Consistent with growth and profitability objectives, the company implemented additional actions to increase new business sales. However, the company anticipates it will take several quarters to see the impact of these actions.

Net investment income was $72.6 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $74.6 million in 2013. Net investment income from equity method and fair value option investments was $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $3.6 million in 2013. Excluding equity method and fair value option investments, net investment income was flat year-over-year at $71.0 million as a higher level of investments offset slightly lower yields. The investment portfolio in total generated a pre-tax equivalent annualized book yield of 5.0 percent for the second quarter of 2014.

Segment Results

Unless otherwise noted, (i) the segment results discussed below are presented on an after-tax basis, (ii) prior year development includes both catastrophe and non-catastrophe losses, (iii) catastrophe losses exclude the impact of prior year development and (iv) underlying loss ratio includes loss and loss adjustment expenses.

In the first quarter of 2014, Kemper realigned its property and casualty insurance businesses. As a result of the realignment, the company is now reporting the property and casualty businesses in a single segment named the Property & Casualty Insurance segment. Kemper has reclassified certain prior year amounts in its segment results to conform to the current presentation.

The Property & Casualty Insurance segment reported a net operating loss of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to net operating income of $19.1 million in 2013. Results decreased primarily from higher catastrophe losses and higher insurance expenses as a percentage of earned premiums, partially offset by improved underlying loss and LAE results. Catastrophe losses were $40.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $16.8 million in the prior year. The underlying loss and LAE ratio for the second quarter of 2014 improved 3.6 percentage points to 66.0 percent, primarily from higher average earned premium rates in personal auto and homeowners. The insurance expense ratio increased to 28.3 percent in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 26.9 percent in 2013, driven by a lower premium base.

The Life & Health Insurance segment reported net operating income of $15.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $20.3 million in 2013. Results decreased largely from higher insurance expenses and lower net investment income. Insurance expenses increased primarily from start-up expenses to expand distribution channels at Reserve National and higher legal fees, partially offset by lower home service agent commissions.

Corporate and Other net operating loss improved $2.6 million over the second quarter of 2013, driven by lower employee retirement benefits and higher unallocated net investment income, partially offset by higher interest expense.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Consolidated Net Operating Income

Consolidated Net Operating Income is an after-tax, non-GAAP financial measure computed by excluding from income from continuing operations the after-tax impact of 1) net realized gains on sales of investments, 2) net impairment losses recognized in earnings related to investments and 3) other significant non-recurring or infrequent items that may not be indicative of ongoing operations. Significant non-recurring items are excluded when (a) the nature of the charge or gain is such that it is reasonably unlikely to recur within two years, and (b) there has been no similar charge or gain within the prior two years. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is income from continuing operations.

Kemper believes that Consolidated Net Operating Income provides investors with a valuable measure of its ongoing performance because it reveals underlying operational performance trends that otherwise might be less apparent if the items were not excluded. Net realized gains on sales of investments and net impairment losses recognized in earnings related to investments included in Kemper’s results may vary significantly between periods and are generally driven by business decisions and external economic developments such as capital market conditions that impact the values of the company’s investments, the timing of which is unrelated to the insurance underwriting process. Significant non-recurring items are excluded because, by their nature, they are not indicative of Kemper’s business or economic trends.

Diluted Consolidated Net Operating Income Per Unrestricted Share

Diluted Consolidated Net Operating Income Per Unrestricted Share is a non-GAAP financial measure computed by dividing Consolidated Net Operating Income attributed to unrestricted shares by the weighted-average unrestricted shares and equivalent shares outstanding. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is Income from Continuing Operations Per Unrestricted Share-Diluted.

Book Value Per Share Excluding Net Unrealized Gains on Fixed Maturities

Book Value Per Share Excluding Net Unrealized Gains on Fixed Maturities is a ratio that uses a non-GAAP financial measure. It is calculated by dividing shareholders’ equity after excluding the after-tax impact of net unrealized gains on fixed income securities by total Common Shares Issued and Outstanding. Book Value Per Share is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Kemper uses the trend in book value per share, excluding the after-tax impact of net unrealized gains on fixed income securities in conjunction with book value per share to identify and analyze the change in net worth attributable to management efforts between periods. Kemper believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors because it eliminates the effect of items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period and are generally driven by economic developments, primarily capital market conditions, the magnitude and timing of which are generally not influenced by management. Kemper believes it enhances understanding and comparability of performance by highlighting underlying business activity and profitability drivers.

Underlying Combined Ratio

Underlying Combined Ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is computed by adding the current year non-catastrophe losses and LAE ratio with the incurred expense ratio. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is the combined ratio, which uses total incurred losses and LAE, including the impact of catastrophe losses, and loss and LAE reserve development. Kemper believes the underlying combined ratio is useful to investors and is used by management to reveal the trends in Kemper’s property and casualty insurance businesses that may be obscured by catastrophe losses and prior-year reserve development. These catastrophe losses may cause loss trends to vary significantly between periods as a result of their incidence of occurrence and magnitude, and can have a significant impact on incurred losses and LAE and the combined ratio. Prior-year reserve development is caused by unexpected loss development on historical reserves. Because reserve development relates to the re-estimation of losses from earlier periods, it has no bearing on the performance of the company’s insurance products in the current period. Kemper believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing its underwriting performance. The underlying combined ratio should not be considered a substitute for the combined ratio and does not reflect the overall underwriting profitability of our business.
