"The second quarter saw a lot of change for me and for UIHC," said Dan Peed, CEO of UPC Insurance. "I am very excited to join the leadership team as Chairman and CEO effective July 1st. As I have been a catastrophe underwriter for over 25 years, I am very comfortable we can continue to grow our non-cat underwriting margin and optimize catastrophe exposures and reinsurance coverages. The second quarter saw continuing improvement in our underlying combined ratio as rate increases earn their way through the portfolio, and underwriting and risk selection actions take effect. While the second quarter was an active non-named catastrophe quarter, in line with our peers, we were still able to generate a core income of $.20 per share and $.30 per share excluding named storms."

"Our results for the second quarter continued to show improvement in several key metrics such as core income and the underlying combined ratio, and I’m grateful for the hard work and progress our team has made," said Brad Martz, President and CFO of UPC Insurance. "However, we are just getting started on the exciting next chapter of our Company’s evolution under Dan’s leadership and more work must be done. A hardening property insurance market provides UPC with a great opportunity to be more selective and optimize our risk portfolio for long-term profitability, so that’s what we intend to focus on."

Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Financial Status and Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in governments worldwide enacting emergency measures to combat the spread of the virus. These measures, which include the implementation of travel bans and restrictions, self-imposed quarantine periods, state and local shelter-in-place orders, business and government shutdowns and social distancing, have caused and continue to cause material disruption to businesses and economies globally. In addition, global equity markets have experienced and continue to experience significant volatility and weakness.

The Company is committed to its employees, agents, customers and stockholders in its resolve to maintain a stable and secure business. The Company has continued to operate at nearly full capacity while taking the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of its employees through adherence to CDC, state and local government work guidelines. In addition, the Company has converted to virtual sales processes to enable our agents to continue their activities.

The scope, severity and longevity of any potential business shutdowns or disruptions as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak is highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time, as new information may continue to emerge concerning the actions governments may take to contain or mitigate the spread of the virus or address its impact on individuals, businesses and the economy. The Company did not incur material claims or significant disruptions to the business for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The Company has not incurred any significant disruptions to its business operations, financial position, liquidity or its ability to service its policyholders as of the date of this press release, with the exceptions of fluctuations in our investment portfolios due to the volatility of the equity securities markets and an immaterial decline in new business premium generated from the Northeast region during the start of the second quarter of 2020 due to COVID-19. At this time, it is not possible to reasonably estimate the extent of the impact of the economic uncertainties on the financial results and conditions of the Company in future periods, but the Company will continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and take reasonable measure to make sure customers continue to be served without interruption.

Quarterly Financial Results

Net income attributable to the Company for the second quarter of 2020 was $24.3 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.9 million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019. The increase in net income was primarily due to an increase in unrealized gains on equity securities, in conjunction with a decrease in loss and loss adjustment expenses (LAE) and a decrease in policy acquisition costs during the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019. This was offset by a decline in gross written premium for the quarter as described below.

The Company's total gross written premium decreased by $10.1 million, or (2.2)%, to $439.7 million for the second quarter of 2020, from $449.8 million for the second quarter of 2019, driven by a decrease in assumed premiums which was offset by the impact of rate increases in Florida and organic policy growth in new and renewal business generated in the Gulf and Southeast regions. The breakdown of the quarter-over-quarter changes in both direct written and assumed premiums by region and gross written premium by line of business are shown in the table below.

Assumed premium written for 2020 and 2019 primarily included commercial property business assumed from unaffiliated insurers.

Loss and LAE decreased by $14.6 million, or 12.6%, to $101.7 million for the second quarter of 2020, from $116.3 million for the second quarter of 2019. Loss and LAE expense as a percentage of net earned premiums decreased 6.3 points to 54.8% for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 61.1% for the second quarter of 2019. Excluding catastrophe losses and reserve development, the Company's gross underlying loss and LAE ratio for the second quarter of 2020 would have been 21.1%, a decrease of 4.7 points from 25.8% during the second quarter of 2019.

Policy acquisition costs decreased by $9 million, or 14.6%, to $52.6 million for the second quarter of 2020, from $61.6 million for the second quarter of 2019 primarily due to an increase in ceding commission income, as a result of changes made to the terms of the Company's quota share reinsurance agreements.

Operating and underwriting expenses increased by $2.8 million, or 25.0%, to $14.0 million for the second quarter of 2020, from $11.2 million for the second quarter of 2019, primarily due to increased investments in technology. This was partially offset by a decrease in travel related expenses, as all business-related travel was postponed during the current quarter as a result of closures and government limitations imposed during the pandemic.

General and administrative expenses decreased by $0.7 million, or 4.2%, to $16.1 million for the second quarter of 2020, from $16.8 million for the second quarter of 2019, primarily due to a decrease in legal and consulting expenses, as well as a decrease in amortization expense as all intangible assets acquired following the 2015 acquisition of Family Security Insurance Company, Inc. (FSIC) have been fully amortized in 2020.

Total Ceding Ratio

(46.1

)%

(42.3

)%

The increase in this ratio was driven by the terms of the renewal of the Company's quota share agreement in 2019. From inception through May 2019, the quota share agreement only covered the Company's subsidiary United Property & Casualty Insurance Company at a ceding percentage of 20.0%. When the agreement was renewed on June 1, 2019, the Company modified the terms to add its subsidiary, FSIC and to increase the ceding percentage to 22.5%. This rate was effective through May 2020, and was maintained with the June 1, 2020 renewal of the quota share agreement.

Investment Portfolio Highlights

The Company's cash, restricted cash and investment holdings increased to $1.4 billion at June 30, 2020 from $1.3 billion at December 31, 2019. The Company's cash and investment holdings consist of investments in U.S. government and agency securities, corporate debt and 100% investment grade money market instruments. Fixed maturities represented approximately 87.7% of total investments at June 30, 2020, compared to 87.5% at December 31, 2019. At June 30, 2020 our fixed maturity investments had a modified duration of 3.5 years, compared to 3.4 years at December 31, 2019.

Book Value Analysis

Book value per share increased 5.0% from $11.69 at December 31, 2019, to $12.27 at June 30, 2020. Underlying book value per share increased 1.3% from $11.43 at December 31, 2019 to $11.58 at June 30, 2020. The increase in the Company's book value per share was due to an increase in the Company's retained earnings as the result of net income in the first half of 2020. As shown in the table below, removing the effect of AOCI decreases the Company's book value per share however, the Company still experienced an increase in underlying book value per share for the second quarter of 2020 as compared to year end.

Underlying book value per common share is a non-GAAP financial measure and is reconciled above to book value per common share, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Additional information regarding non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release can be found in the "Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures" section, below.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company believes that investors' understanding of UPC Insurance's performance is enhanced by the Company's disclosure of the following non-GAAP measures. The Company's methods for calculating these measures may differ from those used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited.

Net income excluding the effects of amortization of intangible assets, realized gains (losses) and unrealized gains (losses) on equity securities, net of tax (core income) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by adding amortization, net of tax, to net income and subtracting realized gains (losses) on the Company's investment portfolio, net of tax, and unrealized gains (losses) on the Company's equity securities, net of tax, from net income. Amortization expense is related to the amortization of intangible assets acquired through mergers and therefore the expense does not arise through normal operations. Investment portfolio gains (losses) and unrealized equity security gains (losses) vary independent of the Company's operations. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net income. The core income measure should not be considered a substitute for net income and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Core return on equity is a non-GAAP ratio calculated using non-GAAP measures. It is calculated by dividing the core income for the period by the average stockholders’ equity for the trailing twelve months (or one quarter of such average, in the case of quarterly periods). Core income is an after-tax non-GAAP measure that is calculated by excluding from net income the effect of non-cash amortization of intangible assets, unrealized gains or losses on the Company's equity security investments and net realized gains or losses on the Company's investment portfolio. In the opinion of the Company’s management, core income, core income per share and core return on equity are meaningful indicators to investors of the Company's underwriting and operating results, since the excluded items are not necessarily indicative of operating trends. Internally, the Company’s management uses core income, core income per share and core return on equity to evaluate performance against historical results and establish financial targets on a consolidated basis. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is return on equity. The core return on equity measure should not be considered a substitute for return on equity and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Combined ratio excluding the effects of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development (underlying combined ratio) is a non-GAAP measure, which is computed by subtracting the effect of current year catastrophe losses and prior year development from the combined ratio. The Company believes that this ratio is useful to investors and it is used by management to highlight the trends in the Company's business that may be obscured by current year catastrophe losses and prior year development. Current year catastrophe losses cause the Company's loss trends to vary significantly between periods as a result of their incidence of occurrence and magnitude, and can have a significant impact on the combined ratio. Prior year development is caused by unexpected loss development on historical reserves. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is the combined ratio. The underlying combined ratio should not be considered as a substitute for the combined ratio and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Net loss and LAE excluding the effects of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development (underlying loss and LAE) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by subtracting the effect of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development from net loss and LAE. The Company uses underlying loss and LAE figures to analyze the Company's loss trends that may be impacted by current year catastrophe losses and prior year development on the Company's reserves. As discussed previously, these two items can have a significant impact on the Company's loss trends in a given period. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net loss and LAE. The underlying loss and LAE measure should not be considered a substitute for net loss and LAE and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Book value per common share, excluding the impact of accumulated other comprehensive income (underlying book value per common share), is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by dividing common stockholders' equity after excluding accumulated other comprehensive income, by total common shares outstanding plus dilutive potential common shares outstanding. The Company uses the trend in book value per common share, excluding the impact of accumulated other comprehensive income, in conjunction with book value per common share to identify and analyze the change in net worth attributable to management efforts between periods. The Company believes the non-GAAP measure is useful to investors because it eliminates the effect of interest rates that can fluctuate significantly from period to period and are generally driven by economic and financial factors which are not influenced by management. Book value per common share is the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Book value per common share, excluding the impact of accumulated other comprehensive income, should not be considered a substitute for book value per common share, and does not reflect the recorded net worth of the Company's business.
