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

In recent months, there has been an outbreak of a novel strain of COVID-19 in many countries in the world, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020. This 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 material disruption to businesses and economies globally. In addition, global equity markets have experienced significant volatility and weakness.

The Company is committed to their employees, agents, customers and shareholders in their 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 their employees through adherence to CDC 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 months ended March 31, 2020. 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 loss attributable to the Company for the first quarter of 2020 was $12.7 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to net income of $9.5 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to unrealized losses on equity securities during the first quarter of 2020 compared to unrealized gains in the first quarter of 2019. The unrealized losses on equity securities were driven by the market's reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. These losses were offset by improvements in the Company's underwriting results.

The Company's total gross written premium increased by $16.6 million, or 5.2%, to $335.2 million for the first quarter of 2020, from $318.6 million for the first quarter of 2019, primarily reflecting organic policy growth in new and renewal business generated in the Gulf and Southeast regions, as well as the impact of rate increases in Florida and the Northeast 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 $1.7 million, or 1.6%, to $102.8 million for the first quarter of 2020, from $104.5 million for the first quarter of 2019. Loss and LAE expense as a percentage of net earned premiums decreased 4.1 points to 53.7% for the first quarter of 2020, compared to 57.8% for the first quarter of 2019. Excluding catastrophe losses and reserve development, the Company's gross underlying loss and LAE ratio for the first quarter of 2020 would have been 25.2%, a decrease of 2.8 points from 28.0% during the first quarter of 2019.

Policy acquisition costs increased by $3.7 million, or 6.7%, to $58.9 million for the first quarter of 2020, from $55.2 million for the first quarter of 2019. The primary driver of the increase was an increase in agent commission expenses and premium taxes as a result of policy growth which was offset partially by higher ceding commissions earned.

Operating and underwriting expenses decreased by $0.5 million, or 5.0%, to $9.7 million for the first quarter of 2020, from $10.2 million for the first quarter of 2019, primarily due to a decrease in printing and postage expenses which was partially offset by increased expenditures on technology software and services.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.7 million, or 4.0%, to $18.3 million for the first quarter of 2020, from $17.6 million for the first quarter of 2019, primarily due to an increase in professional services and consulting fees.

The increase in this ratio was driven by the Company's quota share agreement that was renewed on June 1, 2019. During the first quarter of 2019, the quota share agreement only covered the Company's subsidiary United Property & Casualty Insurance Company at a ceding percentage of 20.0%. At the time of renewal, the Company modified the terms of its quota share agreement to add its subsidiary, Family Security Insurance Company, Inc. and to increase the ceding percentage to 22.5%. This rate was effective through the first quarter of 2020.

Investment Portfolio Highlights

The Company's cash, restricted cash and investment holdings remained consistent at $1.3 billion at each of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. UPC Insurance'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 87.8% of total investments at March 31, 2020, compared to 87.5% at December 31, 2019. At March 31, 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 decreased 3.3% from $11.69 at December 31, 2019, to $11.30 at March 31, 2020. Underlying book value per share decreased 2.8% from $11.43 at December 31, 2019 to $11.11 at March 31, 2020. A decrease in the Company's retained earnings as the result of a net loss in the first quarter of 2020 drove the decrease in our book value per share. This was partially offset by positive accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI). As shown in the table below, removing the effect of AOCI further decreases our book value per share.

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.
