WAYZATA, Minn., Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trean Insurance Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: TIG) (“Trean” or the “Company”), a leading provider of products and services to the specialty insurance market, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Trean completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) in July 2020 and the results detailed below reflect gains and expenses related to the IPO and the Company’s public company readiness efforts.

Third Quarter 2020 Highlights and Subsequent Events

  • Gross written premiums increased 23.0% to $132.3 million, compared to $107.5 million in the third quarter of 2019

  • Loss ratio of 55.9%, a 720 basis point improvement compared to 63.1% in the third quarter of 2019

  • Expense ratio of 25.1%, a 90 basis point improvement compared to 26.0% in the third quarter of 2019

  • Combined ratio of 81.0%, an 810 basis point improvement versus 89.1% in the prior-year period

  • Net income was $69.3 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.41, primarily driven by a one-time $69.8 million gain on revaluation of the Company’s Compstar Holding Company LLC (“Compstar”) investment, and partially offset by $11.7 million in certain IPO-related bonuses, expenses and contract buyout fee

  • Adjusted net income(1) (excluding the aforementioned IPO-related events), was $10.5 million, and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.21

  • Return on equity of 102.5%; Adjusted return on equity(1) (excluding the aforementioned IPO-related events) of 15.5%; Adjusted return on tangible equity was 25.9%(1)

  • Subsequent to quarter end, completed acquisition of 7710 Insurance Company and its associated program manager and agency

(1) Adjusted net income, adjusted return on equity, adjusted return on tangible equity and underwriting income are non-GAAP financial measures. See discussion of “Key Metrics” below.

“Our proven business model and operating strategy produced an outstanding third quarter performance despite the ongoing challenging environment,” stated Andrew M. O’Brien, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trean. “We produced double-digit growth in gross written premiums, in large part due to the onboarding of new program partners that are already providing valuable contributions. Furthermore, our prudent underwriting approach and ability to quickly and fairly resolve claims led to a strong quarter of profitability. As we begin looking into 2021, we are excited about the multiple opportunities present in workers compensation and other lines. We will also continue to invest thoughtfully in our business to support our program partners and to promote sustainable long-term growth.”

Underwriting Results

Gross written premiums increased 23.0% to $132.3 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $107.5 million for the third quarter of 2019, primarily attributable to the addition of new program partners brought on board during the second and third quarters of 2020. Net earned premiums of $27.9 million grew 25.7% compared to the prior year’s third quarter, driven by the increase in gross written and gross earned premiums, partially offset by an increase in ceded earned premiums compared to the prior-year period.

Underwriting income(1) was $5.3 million, resulting in a combined ratio of 81.0% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to underwriting income of $2.4 million and a combined ratio of 89.1% for the prior-year period. Losses and loss adjustment expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were $15.6 million, which resulted in a 55.9% loss ratio, a 720 basis point improvement compared to 63.1% in the prior-year period. The improvement in the loss ratio during the third quarter was primarily attributable to the increase in net earned premiums during the period, offset by a decrease in favorable loss reserve estimate true-ups made during the third quarter of 2020 versus the third quarter of 2019.

General and administrative expenses were $7.0 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $5.8 million for the prior-year period. The Company’s expense ratio was 25.1% for the third quarter of 2020, a 90 basis point improvement compared to 26.0% for the prior-year period, primarily attributable to an increase in net earned premiums, partially offset by a rise in net agent commissions resulting from the increase in written premiums, higher salaries and benefits resulting from an expanded workforce and an increase in professional service expenses.

The third quarters of 2020 and 2019 included certain gains and expenses related to the IPO transaction and other consulting expenses, and management fee expenses including cash bonuses paid to unitholders and employees. Adjusted net income(1), which excludes those items, for the third quarter of 2020 was $10.5 million, a 61.8% increase compared to net income of $6.5 million for the prior-year period. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2020 were $0.21.

Investment Results

Net investment income was $1.9 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $1.7 million for the prior-year period. Cash and invested assets consist primarily of fixed maturities, equity securities and cash equivalents. The majority of the Company’s investment portfolio at September 30, 2020 was comprised of fixed maturity securities that were classified as available-for-sale of $375.3 million. Also included in investments at September 30, 2020 were $3.7 million of equity securities and $165.3 million of cash and cash equivalents. The Company’s investment portfolio had an average rating of “AA” at both September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019.

Other

Other revenue increased $2.8 million, or 110.9%, to $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $2.6 million for the prior-year period, largely driven by an increase in brokerage fees earned due to the timing of effective dates of reinsurance contracts for current and new programs and increases in estimated premiums on reinsurance contracts.

Equity earnings in affiliates, net of tax were $0.4 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2019. The decrease primarily resulted from the Company acquiring the remaining 55% interest in Compstar in July 2020; following the acquisition, the Company now owns 100% of Compstar.

Shareholders’ Equity and Returns

Total shareholders’ equity was $401.8 million at September 30, 2020, compared to $141.6 million at December 31, 2019. Return on equity was 102.5% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 18.0% for the prior-year period, and adjusted return on equity(1) was 15.5% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 20.2% for the prior-year period. The change in return on equity reflected a significant increase in the Company’s shareholders’ equity, primarily resulting from the increases in additional paid-in capital related to the IPO and retained earnings since December 2019. Return on tangible equity was 171.2% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 18.5% for the prior-year period and adjusted return on tangible equity was 25.9% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 20.7% for the prior-year period.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Underwriting income

The Company defines underwriting income as income before taxes excluding net investment income, investment revaluation gains, net realized capital gains or losses, IPO-related expenses, intangible asset amortization, noncash share-based compensation, other revenue, interest expense and other income. Underwriting income represents the pre-tax profitability of the Company’s underwriting operations and allows management to evaluate the Company’s underwriting performance without regard to investment income, IPO-related expenses, intangible asset amortization, noncash share-based compensation, interest expense and other revenue and income. The Company uses this metric because the Company believes it gives management and other users of the Company’s financial information useful insight into the Company’s underwriting business performance by adjusting for these expenses and sources of income. Underwriting income should not be viewed as a substitute for net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, and other companies may define underwriting income differently.

Adjusted net income

The Company defines adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of certain items, including the consummation of the reorganization transactions in connection with the IPO, noncash intangible asset amortization and share-based compensation, or gains or losses that the Company believes do not reflect its core operating performance, which items may have a disproportionate effect in a given period, affecting comparability the Company’s results across periods. The Company calculates the tax impact only on adjustments that would be included in calculating the Company’s income tax expense using the effective tax rate at the end of each period. The Company uses adjusted net income as an internal performance measure in the management of its operations because the Company believes it gives its management and other users of its financial information useful insight into the Company’s results of operations and underlying business performance by eliminating the effects of these items. Adjusted net income should not be viewed as a substitute for net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, and other companies may define adjusted net income differently.

Adjusted return on equity should not be viewed as a substitute for return on equity calculated in accordance with GAAP, and other companies may define adjusted return on equity differently.
