Sirius Global Services LLC
Sirius Global Services LLC
  • First quarter 2022 gross premiums written of $1 billion evenly split between insurance and reinsurance on execution of strategic shift towards Insurance & Services

  • Strong contribution from SiriusPoint’s strategic partnerships

HAMILTON, Bermuda, May 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SiriusPoint Ltd. (“SiriusPoint” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SPNT) today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Net loss of $217 million, or $1.36 per diluted common share

  • Combined ratio of 93.7%, underwriting income of $34 million

  • Tangible diluted book value per share decreased $1.39, or 10.5%, from the fourth quarter of 2021 to $11.88

  • Core income of $27 million, which includes underwriting income of $13 million, Core combined ratio of 97.5%, and Core net services income of $14 million

  • Catastrophe losses were $7 million or 1 percentage point on the combined ratio; Russia/Ukraine losses of $19 million or 4 percentage points on the combined ratio

  • Net investment loss of $205 million, including (15.3)% return from our investment in the Third Point Enhanced Fund

  • Annualized return on average common equity of (39.5)%

Sid Sankaran, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SiriusPoint, said: “Our underwriting results showed positive progress in the first quarter of 2022, with a 93.7% combined ratio, reflecting the diligent execution of our strategic priorities to transform our business. Our focus on shifting our business mix towards our promising Insurance & Services segment and strategic partnerships approach gained further traction this quarter, with premiums split almost equally between Insurance & Services and Reinsurance, compared to approximately 60% Reinsurance and 40% Insurance & Services in 2021. Our fee business has strong double digit sequential growth in revenue and income. We also saw progress in our Reinsurance segment, where we achieved profitable underwriting performance, reflective of the discipline with which we have approached the renewal of attractive business within the scope of our risk appetite.

Our investment results were disappointing and reducing volatility in our investment portfolio remains a strategic priority. We redeemed $100 million from the Third Point Enhanced Fund during the quarter following $450 million of redemptions in the fourth quarter of 2021. We intend to continue the redemption of funds from the Third Point Enhanced Fund. We see significant intrinsic value in our share price following the meaningful restructuring work we have undertaken, and we repurchased $5 million of common stock in the first quarter.

We see positive momentum in our performance as we move towards the mid-point of the year. The capital position of the Company is strong, and we have a high degree of financial flexibility that allows for a responsive and nimble approach to market opportunities as we continue to grow Insurance & Services and our MGA relationships.”

First Quarter 2022 Summary

Consolidated underwriting income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $33.5 million compared to underwriting income of $8.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The change in underwriting results was due to higher earned premiums of $529.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 with a 93.7% combined ratio compared to earned premiums of $245.2 million with a combined ratio of 96.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Reportable Segments

The determination of our reportable segments is based on the manner in which management monitors the performance of our operations. In the fourth quarter of 2021, we began classifying our business into two reportable segments - Reinsurance and Insurance & Services.

Core Underwriting 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.

Core results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 included income of $26.7 million compared to income of $57.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 consists of underwriting income of $12.7 million (97.5% combined ratio) and net services income of $14.0 million, compared to underwriting income of $15.2 million (93.7% combined ratio) and net services income of $42.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The change in underwriting results was primarily driven by higher losses, including Russia/Ukraine losses, and change in mix of business towards higher combined ratio casualty business. The change in net services income was primarily driven by investment losses from Strategic Investments of $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to investment gains from Strategic Investments of $35.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as well as higher contributions from our wholly owned managing general agencies over the prior year.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, losses from the Russia/Ukraine conflict, including losses from the political risk, trade credit, and aviation lines of business, were $13.3 million, or 2.6 percentage points on the combined ratio. For the three months ended March 31, 2022 catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $6.9 million, or 1.3 percentage points on the combined ratio, from the European February storms and Australian flooding compared to $5.7 million, or 2.4 percentage points on the combined ratio, from winter storm Uri for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Reinsurance Segment

Reinsurance generated segment income of $3.1 million (99.0% combined ratio) for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to segment income of $16.5 million (91.8% combined ratio) for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The change in net underwriting results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021 was primarily driven by $13.3 million of losses from the Russia/Ukraine conflict, or 4.3 percentage points on the combined ratio. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $6.9 million from the European February storms and Australian flooding. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $5.7 million from winter storm Uri.

Reinsurance gross premiums written were $524.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of $365.5 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily driven by an increase in gross premiums written as a result of a full quarter of premium from the legacy Sirius Group companies in the current quarter. In comparison to 2021, our Reinsurance global property portfolio has been reduced with a better mix by client, product and geography; we cut our gross and net property exposures and purchased reinsurance to improve our volatility profile.

Insurance & Services Segment

Insurance & Services generated segment income of $23.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to segment income of $41.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Segment income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 consists of underwriting income of $9.6 million (95.5% combined ratio) and net services income of $14.0 million, compared to an underwriting loss of $1.4 million (103.3% combined ratio) and net services income of $42.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The improvement in underwriting results was primarily driven by the inclusion of a full quarter of results from our Accident & Health business, resulting in a lower combined ratio as compared to a partial quarter in the first quarter of 2021 from the legacy Sirius Group companies. The change in net services income is driven by investment losses from Strategic Investments of $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to investment gains from Strategic Investments of $35.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Insurance & Services gross premiums written were $483.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of $292.6 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily driven by an increase in gross premiums written as a result of a full quarter of premium from the legacy Sirius Group companies, and an increase in premium written sourced from Corvus, Arcadian and the recovery of IMG travel insurance volume.

Investments

Total realized and unrealized investment gains (losses) and net investment income (loss) was $(205.1) million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $186.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Investment results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were primarily attributable to the net investment loss of $128.3 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a (15.3)% return. The return was primarily attributable to long event/fundamental equities driven by growth-oriented positions in the enterprise technology and financials sectors. Our fixed income portfolio also declined in the quarter due to rising interest rates and the widening of credit spreads. Our fixed income assets are positioned with a shorter duration than liabilities to capitalize on a rising rate environment.

Investment results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were driven by net investment income of $153.2 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a 14.6% return. The 2021 return was primarily attributable to long event/fundamental equities.

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.

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 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 March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021:
