Sirius Global Services LLC
Sirius Global Services LLC

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Feb. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SiriusPoint Ltd. (“SiriusPoint” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SPNT) today announced results for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Net loss of $140 million, or $0.88 per diluted common share

  • Tangible diluted book value per share decreased $0.80, or 5.7%, from the third quarter of 2021 to $13.27

  • Core loss of $7 million, which includes underwriting income of $35 million and Core combined ratio of 93.6%, offset by a Core net services loss of $41 million

  • Core catastrophe losses were $24 million or 5 percentage points on the Core combined ratio

  • Annualized return on average common equity of (23.7)%

  • Net investment loss of $151 million, including (7.5)% return from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund

Full Year 2021 Highlights

  • Net income of $45 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share

  • Tangible diluted book value per share decreased $3.44, or 20.6%, from December 31, 2020 to $13.27

  • Core loss of $163 million, which includes an underwriting loss of $174 million and Core combined ratio of 110.0%, partially offset by Core net services income of $11 million

  • Return on average common equity of 2.3%

  • Net investment income of $313 million, including 27.9% return from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund

Sid Sankaran, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SiriusPoint, said: “In 2021 we made significant progress in dramatically reshaping our company. Our strategy is focused on a comprehensive re-underwriting of the property and casualty reinsurance portfolio, building value in a newly formed Insurance & Services segment, including our robust and growing MGA platform, and repositioning our capital allocation within our investment portfolio. We believe these actions will reduce our volatility profile and build long-term, differentiated, and sustainable value.

Our underwriting results for the year reflect a historical overexposure to Cat risk and legacy hedge fund re equity exposure. They are not in line with our expectations, but I am pleased with the significant progress we have made towards re-engineering our business. We have cut our Cat exposure dramatically, reallocated capital to more attractive opportunities, and reduced our risk profile. As a result of these changes, we now have a smaller global property book, an improving and differentiated global specialty and casualty business, and a continuing mix shift from reinsurance to insurance.

We enjoyed superior returns from our investment portfolio in the first three quarters of the year. The fourth quarter results reflected poor performance in the broader equity markets, during which we completed a planned reallocation of $450 million from hedge fund exposure to cash and fixed income investments, with an additional $100 million reallocation in Q1 2022. We have amended the investment management agreement with Third Point LLC to facilitate the transformation of our investment portfolio from equity to fixed income that is in line with our risk appetite and the strategic direction of the company. Our plan is to reduce capital intensity and volatility on the asset side. This frees up capital to support the growth of our Insurance & Services business.

Going into 2022, our focus remains on pursuing profitable and sustainable growth, and continuing to shift our business mix as we execute our Insurance & Services strategy. We have financial strength, a flexible underwriting and operating platform, a strong entrepreneurial culture, and a disciplined growth mindset. I am full of enthusiasm for the year ahead.”

Fourth Quarter 2021 Summary

Reportable Segments

As a result of the acquisition of Sirius Group and the subsequent changes in strategy and new executive management team, SiriusPoint reports on two operating segments effective as of the fourth quarter of 2021: Reinsurance and Insurance & Services. Previously, we managed our business in four reportable segments: Specialty, Accident & Health (“A&H”), Property, and Runoff & Other. This change better reflects the management structure of SiriusPoint, provides greater transparency into the growing contribution from our managing general agents (“MGAs”) and other strategic partnerships, and reflects our decision to exit the runoff business. Where applicable, all prior periods presented have been revised to conform to this new presentation.

Core Results

Collectively, the sum of our two segments, Reinsurance and Insurance & Services, constitute our "Core" results. Core underwriting income, Core net services income, Core income and Core combined ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. See reconciliations in “Segment Reporting”. We believe it is important to review Core results as it better reflects how management views the business and reflects our decision to exit the runoff business. The sum of Core results and Corporate results are equal to the consolidated results of operations.

Effective January 1, 2021, the Company changed its accounting policy for assumed written premiums. Previously, the Company estimated ultimate premium written for the entire contract period and recorded this estimate at inception of the contract. The Company changed its accounting policy to recognize premiums written ratably over the term of the related policy or reinsurance treaty. The change in accounting policy had no impact on the previously reported net income (loss) or shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders. Prior period segment results have been revised to conform to the current period presentation.

Three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

Core results for the three months ended December 31, 2021 were a loss of $6.6 million, compared to a loss of $44.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The loss for the three months ended December 31, 2021 consists of underwriting income of $34.7 million (93.6% combined ratio) and a net services loss of $41.3 million, compared to an underwriting loss of $44.8 million (128.2% combined ratio) and net services income of $0.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The change in results was primarily driven by moderate catastrophe loss activity in the fourth quarter and favorable prior year loss development, partially offset by net investment losses from our strategic investments valued at fair value.

Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the three months ended December 31, 2021 were $24.1 million, or 4.5 percentage points on the combined ratio, primarily related to the December tornadoes and other fourth quarter catastrophes. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the three months ended December 31, 2020 were $7.0 million, or 4.4 percentage points on the combined ratio, primarily related to Hurricane Delta and Hurricane Zeta.

Year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

Core results for the year ended December 31, 2021 were a loss of $162.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to a loss of $68.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The loss for the year ended December 31, 2021 consists of an underwriting loss of $173.6 million (110.0% combined ratio) and net services income of $11.0 million, compared to an underwriting loss of $68.7 million (111.9% combined ratio) and net services income of $0.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The change in results was primarily driven by catastrophe losses from the European floods and Hurricane Ida and a change in mix of business as a result of the acquisition of Sirius Group, partially offset by net favorable prior year loss reserve development.

Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the year ended December 31, 2021 were $326.0 million, or 18.8 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $133 million for the European floods and $97 million for Hurricane Ida, based on our ground-up assessment of client exposed business to each event and a top-down estimate, based on industry loss for each event and an estimate of our market share, and other 2021 catastrophe events. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the year ended December 31, 2020 were $36.6 million, or 6.3 percentage points on the combined ratio, related to Hurricane Laura and other 2020 catastrophe events.

Reinsurance Segment

Three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

Reinsurance generated segment income of $30.9 million (91.2% combined ratio) for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared to a segment loss of $46.0 million (129.4% combined ratio) for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The change in segment results was primarily driven by moderate catastrophe loss activity in the fourth quarter, a change in the mix of business as a result of the acquisition of Sirius Group and favorable prior year loss development of $11.9 million. The three months ended December 31, 2020 included net adverse prior year loss reserve development of $40.4 million as a result of increased casualty reserves in response to accumulated loss experience and cedent reserving increases.

Reinsurance gross premiums written were $418.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $275.3 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $305.4 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies.

Year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

Reinsurance generated a segment loss of $196.6 million (116.3% combined ratio) for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to a segment loss of $68.3 million (111.9% combined ratio) for the year ended December 31, 2020. The change in segment results was primarily driven by increased catastrophe losses from the European floods and Hurricane Ida, partially offset by favorable prior year loss development of $18.6 million.

Reinsurance gross premiums written were $1,350.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $816.3 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $928.7 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies from the date of acquisition. Excluding the premiums from the Sirius Group legacy companies, the decrease in gross premiums written was due to a reduction in property catastrophe excess reinsurance premiums to reduce catastrophic risk exposures in anticipation of the Sirius Group acquisition.

Insurance & Services Segment

Three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

Insurance & Services generated a segment loss of $37.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared to segment income of $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The segment loss for the three months ended December 31, 2021 consists of underwriting income of $3.8 million (98.0% combined ratio) and a net services loss of $41.3 million, compared to underwriting income of $1.2 million (55.5% combined ratio) and net services income of $0.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. The change in underwriting results was primarily driven by a change in mix of business from the growth in our strategic partnerships, and the net services loss was driven by investment losses from our strategic investments valued at fair value.

Insurance & Services gross premiums written were $269.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $249.0 million compared to the three months ended December 31, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $168.2 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies and due to an increase in premiums written from our new MGA partnerships, in which we invest capital and expertise.

Year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020

Insurance & Services generated segment income of $34.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to segment income of $nil for the year ended December 31, 2020. The segment income for the year ended December 31, 2021 consists of underwriting income of $23.3 million (95.5% combined ratio) and net services income of $10.7 million, compared to a underwriting loss of $0.4 million (105.6% combined ratio) and net services income of $0.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The change in underwriting results was primarily driven by underwriting and net services income from the legacy Sirius Group companies from the date of acquisition and favorable prior year loss development of $13.5 million. The Accident & Health line continues to benefit from favorable loss ratio trends in its healthcare products due to the recognition of lower healthcare utilization rates that we attribute to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Insurance & Services gross premiums written were $897.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $872.4 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $620.8 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies from the date of acquisition, and due to an increase in premium written from our new MGA partnerships.

Investments

Total realized and unrealized investment gains (losses) and net investment income (loss) was $(151.2) million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared to $204.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020.

Investment results for the three months ended December 31, 2021 were primarily due to a net investment loss of $100.4 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a (7.5)% return. The return was primarily attributable to long event/fundamental equities, led by financials, and in particular fintech positions. In addition, we also recognized $38.2 million of losses on alternative investments within our other long term investment portfolio.

Investment results for the three months ended December 31, 2020 were primarily attributable to net investment income of $186.6 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a 21.5% return.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, net investment income from the TP Enhanced Fund totaled $298.5 million, corresponding to a 27.9% return. The return was primarily attributable to long event/fundamental equities, in particular from private positions that executed well-received initial public offerings.

Loss Portfolio Transfer with the Compre Group

On October 29, 2021, we closed a loss portfolio transfer transaction (“LPT”) with Pallas Reinsurance Company Ltd., a subsidiary of the Compre Group, an insurance and reinsurance legacy specialist. The LPT covers $362 million of our loss reserves for the subject business, including much of the legacy Sirius Group runoff portfolio, including asbestos and environmental lines, for a premium of $381 million. We recognized a net Corporate charge of $23 million, including $4 million of federal excise tax expense, in the fourth quarter of 2021 related to this transaction.

Our transaction with the Compre Group underscores the ongoing transformation of SiriusPoint, our focus on optimizing capital allocation and rebalancing towards insurance and higher margin and growth lines, and provides further certainty on SiriusPoint’s reserve position. Following the completion of the LPT, our net loss reserves from Runoff business were reduced by 48%. This transaction transfers the risk of the subject reserves developing adversely to Compre Group in exchange for the premium payment, and reduces statutory and rating agency capital charges on the subject reserves.

Acquisition of Sirius Group

Results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were revised due to an increase in the total identifiable net assets acquired as part of the Sirius Group acquisition. This resulted in an additional bargain gain of $37.5 million recognized in other revenues in full year 2021 results. Net income available to SiriusPoint common shareholders increased by a corresponding amount; however, there was no impact on total shareholders’ equity as the offsetting entry was recognized in additional paid-in capital. There was no impact from this adjustment to underwriting results, segments results or key performance indicators, including book value per share metrics, except for return on average common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Financial Metrics

In presenting SiriusPoint’s results, management has included financial measures that are not calculated under standards or rules that comprise accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). SiriusPoint’s management uses this information in its internal analysis of results and believes that this information may be informative to investors in gauging the quality of SiriusPoint’s financial performance, identifying trends in our results and providing meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Core underwriting income, Core net services income, Core income, and Core combined ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes it is important to review Core results as it better reflects how management views the business and reflects the Company’s decision to exit the runoff business. Basic book value per share, tangible basic book value per share, diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share are also non-GAAP financial measures. SiriusPoint’s management believes that long-term growth in book value per share is an important measure of the Company’s financial performance because it allows management and investors to track over time the value created by the retention of earnings. In addition, SiriusPoint’s management believes this metric is useful to investors because it provides a basis for comparison with other companies in the industry that also report a similar measure. Reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures are included in the attached financial information in accordance with Regulation G.

SIRIUSPOINT LTD.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND RECONCILIATIONS & OTHER FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Core Results

Collectively, the sum of the Company's two segments, Reinsurance and Insurance & Services, constitute "Core" results. Core underwriting income, Core net services income, Core income and Core combined ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe it is important to review Core results as it better reflects how management views the business and reflects our decision to exit the runoff business. The sum of Core results and Corporate results are equal to the consolidated results of operations.

Core underwriting income - calculated by subtracting loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred, net, acquisition costs, net, and other underwriting expenses from net premiums earned.

Core net services income - consists of services revenues which include commissions, brokerage and fee income related to consolidated MGAs, and other revenues, services expenses which include direct expenses related to consolidated MGAs, services non-controlling income which represent minority ownership interests in consolidated MGAs, and net investment gains from Strategic Investments at fair value which are net investment gains/losses from investment in our strategic partners. Net services income is a key indicator of the profitability of the Company's services provided, including investment returns on non-consolidated investment positions held.

Core income - consists of two components, core underwriting income and core net services income. Core income is a key measure of our segment performance.

Core combined ratio - calculated by dividing the sum of Core loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred, net, acquisition costs, net and other underwriting expenses by Core net premiums earned. This ratio is a key indicator of our underwriting profitability.

Basic Book Value Per Share, Tangible Basic Book Value Per Share, Diluted Book Value Per Share, Tangible Diluted Book Value Per Share

Basic book value per share, as presented, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by dividing common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders by the number of common shares outstanding, excluding the total number of issued unvested restricted shares, at period end. While restricted shares are outstanding, they are excluded from Basic book value per share because they are unvested.

Tangible basic book value per share, as presented, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders by the number of common shares outstanding, excluding the total number of unvested restricted shares, at period end. Management believes that effects of intangible assets are not indicative of underlying underwriting results or trends and make book value comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies less meaningful. The Company's management believes tangible book value per share is useful to investors because it provides a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of intangible assets.

Diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share, as presented, are non-GAAP financial measures and are calculated similar to the treasury stock method. Under the treasury stock method, we assume that proceeds received from in-the-money options and/or warrants exercised are used to repurchase common shares in the market. The dilutive effect of restricted shares, restricted share units and options are calculated in a manner consistent with how dilution is calculated using the treasury stock method for earnings per share. We have also followed a similar approach for calculating dilution for warrants, Series A preference shares, Upside Rights and other potentially dilutive securities issued as part of our acquisition of Sirius Group. Management believes these measures are useful to investors because they measure the realizable value of shareholder returns in a manner consistent with how dilution is calculated using the treasury stock method for earnings per share. Management believes that effects of intangible assets are not indicative of underlying underwriting results or trends and make book value comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies less meaningful. Also, the tangible diluted book value per share is useful because it provides a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding intangible assets.

The following table sets forth the of basic book value per share, tangible basic book value per share, diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share as of December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020:
