(NASDAQ:PLMR) (“Palomar” or “Company”) reported a net loss of $1.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to net income of $10.9 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Our newly launched E&S carrier, Palomar Excess and Surplus Insurance Company, or PESIC, represents an exciting progression in our evolution. PESIC enables us to extend the breadth and reach of our product suite and was a key contributor to the 95% year on year growth in our commercial lines gross written premiums for the full year. Overall, we grew gross written premiums by 31.0% in the fourth quarter and 40.6% for the full year while maintaining profitability in the face of an historic wind season.” Mr. Armstrong shared, “We are committed to applying data and lessons learned to the continuous improvement of our business. During this past year we modified our approach to and participation in specific wind-exposed markets upon review of potential risk-adjusted returns, catastrophe payback and prevailing market conditions. We also made additional refinements to our risk transfer strategy. The combination of these efforts will not only reduce volatility but also further enhance visibility into our financial results. Finally, we continued investing in our technology and our team as we position Palomar for near and long-term success.” Mr. Armstrong further offered, “Separately, I would like to address the severe weather activity throughout the country this past week, specifically Winter Storm Uri in Texas where Palomar has a considerable market presence. I want to tell our policyholders in Texas that our thoughts are with them, we stand ready to support them and we are here to help them rebound. Palomar has substantial resources in place to support both residential and commercial policyholders in Texas, including comprehensive reinsurance coverage on both an excess of loss and quota share basis. Both our commercial and residential quota shares will apply to this event from the first dollar of loss, and as such we do not expect to incur material losses from the storm.” Underwriting ResultsGross written premiums increased 31.0% to $96.1 million compared to $73.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, while net earned premiums increased 25.6% compared to the prior year’s fourth quarter. Losses and loss adjustment expenses for the fourth quarter were $17.2 million including $14.5 million of catastrophe losses and $2.7 million of non-catastrophe attritional losses. The loss ratio for the quarter was 44.2%, comprised of a catastrophe loss ratio of 37.2%(1) and an attritional loss ratio of 7.0%, compared to a loss ratio of 7.1% during the same period last year comprised entirely of attritional losses. The fourth quarter losses include $0.1 million of favorable prior year development. In addition to catastrophe losses, the Company’s fourth quarter 2020 results were impacted by a reinsurance expense acceleration charge of $4.1 million and reinstatement premium of $0.8 million on backup reinsurance purchased. Underwriting loss(1) was $5.0 million resulting in a combined ratio of 112.8% compared to underwriting income of $11.4 million and a combined ratio of 63.1% during the same period last year. The fourth quarter of 2020 results include certain expenses related to stock-based compensation and catastrophe losses. The fourth quarter of 2019 results include certain expenses related to the Company’s stock offering and stock-based compensation. Without these items, the Company’s adjusted combined ratio excluding catastrophe losses(1) was 73.8% in the fourth quarter compared to 60.7% during the same period last year. This increase was significantly due to the reinsurance acceleration charge and reinstatement premium incurred in the fourth quarter of 2020. Investment ResultsNet investment income increased by 29.0% to $2.3 million compared to $1.8 million in the prior year’s fourth quarter. The year over year increase was primarily due to a higher average balance of investments held during the three months ended December 31, 2020 due to cash generated from operations as well as proceeds from the Company’s January and June 2020 stock offerings, offset by lower yields on invested assets. Funds are generally invested conservatively in high quality securities, including government agency, asset and mortgage-backed securities, municipal and corporate bonds with an average credit quality of "A2/A". The weighted average duration of the fixed-maturity investment portfolio, including cash equivalents, was 3.96 years at December 31, 2020. Cash and invested assets totaled $456.1 million at December 31, 2020. During the fourth quarter, the Company recognized realized and unrealized gains of $245 thousand related to its investment portfolio as compared to a $1.2 million gain in last year’s fourth quarter. Tax RateThe effective tax rate for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was 23.1% compared to 24.6% for the three months ended December 31, 2019. For the current quarter, the Company’s income tax rate differed from the statutory rate due to the tax impact of the permanent component of employee stock option exercises. The 2019 fourth quarter tax rate includes an adjustment from prior periods of $0.4 million, or approximately 3 points of the effective tax rate for the fourth quarter. Stockholders’ Equity and ReturnsStockholders’ equity was $363.7 million at December 31, 2020, compared to $218.6 million at December 31, 2019. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company’s annualized return on equity was (2.0%) compared to 20.4% for the same period last year. Full Year 2021 OutlookFor the full year 2021, the Company expects to achieve adjusted net income of $62 million to $67 million. This adjusted net income guidance considers the impact of Winter Storm Uri in Texas.

Underwriting revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as total revenue, excluding net investment income and net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments. See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of total revenue calculated in accordance with GAAP to underwriting revenue. Underwriting income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as income before income taxes excluding net investment income, net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments and interest expense. See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of income before income taxes calculated in accordance with GAAP to underwriting income (loss). Adjusted net income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net income excluding the impact of certain items that may not be indicative of underlying business trends, operating results, or future outlook, net of tax impact. Palomar calculates the tax impact only on adjustments which would be included in calculating the Company’s income tax expense using the estimated tax rate at which the company received a deduction for these adjustments. See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP to adjusted net income (loss). Return on equity is net income expressed on an annualized basis as a percentage of average beginning and ending stockholders’ equity during the period. Adjusted return on equity is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as adjusted net income expressed on an annualized basis as a percentage of average beginning and ending stockholders’ equity during the period. See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of return on equity calculated using unadjusted GAAP numbers to adjusted return on equity. Loss ratio, expressed as a percentage, is the ratio of losses and loss adjustment expenses, to net earned premiums. Expense ratio, expressed as a percentage, is the ratio of acquisition and other underwriting expenses, net of commission and other income to net earned premiums. Combined ratio is defined as the sum of the loss ratio and the expense ratio. A combined ratio under 100% generally indicates an underwriting profit. A combined ratio over 100% generally indicates an underwriting loss. Adjusted combined ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as the sum of the loss ratio and the expense ratio calculated excluding the impact of certain items that may not be indicative of underlying business trends, operating results, or future outlook. See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of combined ratio calculated using unadjusted GAAP numbers to adjusted combined ratio. Diluted adjusted earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as adjusted net income (loss) divided by the weighted-average common shares outstanding for the period, reflecting the dilution which could occur if equity-based awards are converted into common share equivalents as calculated using the treasury stock method. See “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of diluted earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP to diluted adjusted earnings per share. Catastrophe loss ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as the ratio of catastrophe losses to net earned premiums.
