    Sirius International Insurance Group, Ltd. Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

    HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sirius International Insurance Group, Ltd. (Nasdaq: SG) (“Sirius Group”, the “Company”, or the “Group”) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020. The Company reported a comprehensive (loss) of $(67) million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to a comprehensive (loss) of $(50) million for the third quarter of 2019. The Company recorded $39 million of pre-tax losses associated with the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), net of reinsurance and additional premiums due. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $53 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2020, primarily related to Hurricane Laura ($29 million), an August Midwest derecho ($11 million) and California wildfires ($10 million). Sirius Group recorded a combined ratio of 115% for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the comprehensive (loss) was $(202) million compared to comprehensive income of $34 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded COVID-19 losses of $192 million, net of reinsurance and additional premiums due. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $72 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Sirius Group recorded a combined ratio of 113% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.Book value per common share was $12.66 as of September 30, 2020 compared to $13.18 as of June 30, 2020 and $14.23 as of December 31, 2019, a decrease of 3.9% for the quarter and 11.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Tangible book value per common share(1) was $7.89 as of September 30, 2020 compared to $8.39 as of June 30, 2020 and $9.39 as of December 31, 2019, a decrease of 6.0% for the quarter and 16.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.“It was an active quarter for catastrophes and COVID-19 continues to impact our world. We remain proactive in our support of our clients as they face, endure and surmount these challenges,” said Kip Oberting, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sirius Group. "We have taken actions over the past ten months to optimize our portfolio more aggressively than at any other time over the last decade. The benefits of these actions began to materialize in the third quarter with lighter catastrophe losses than Sirius Group would have experienced without such actions. Looking ahead, the full extent of these optimizations have yet to materialize. More significantly, market demand for our capacity is increasing, which is driving terms and conditions to become much more appropriate than they had been during the past few years."Mr. Oberting continued, "Equally important, the successful completion of our strategic review process preserved Sirius Group’s franchise.  Upon closing of the pending merger, our underwriting teams are poised to go on offense on behalf of a larger balance sheet — at just the right time in the market cycle. We are headed to a sweet spot. Finally.” * Net (loss) attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2020 was $(96) million. Basic and diluted earnings per common share were $(0.83). This compares to net (loss) attributable to common shareholders of $(3) million and basic and diluted earnings per common share of $(0.02) and $(0.06), respectively, for the third quarter of 2019.                                                                                                                           (1) Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP financial measure. See accompanying Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures. * For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net (loss) attributable to common shareholders was $(207) million. Basic earnings per common share was $(1.80) and diluted earnings per common share was $(1.83). This compares to net income attributable to common shareholders of $99 million and basic and diluted earnings per common share of $0.78 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. * For the third quarter of 2020, Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders(2) was $(101) million compared to Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders of $(65) million for the third quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders was $(218) million compared to Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders of $(66) million for the same period in 2019.Chief Financial Officer, Ralph Salamone also commented, “The 115% combined ratio during the quarter was impacted by catastrophe losses and $39 million in losses related to COVID-19 during the quarter, primarily driven by a resurgence of infections in the United States. The total return on investments helped to partially offset the underwriting result.”Third Quarter and Year to Date 2020 SummaryUnderwritingSirius Group’s combined ratio was 115% for the third quarter of 2020 compared to 123% for the third quarter of 2019. The improvement in the combined ratio was mainly driven by lower catastrophe losses, partially offset by COVID-19 pandemic losses (11 points), net of reinsurance and additional premiums due. The third quarter of 2020 included $53 million or 14 points of catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, compared to $109 million or 29 points for the third quarter of 2019. * Gross written premiums for the third quarter of 2020 were $356 million and decreased 14% compared to the third quarter of 2019 primarily due to COVID-19 and client reaction to Sirius Group's rating downgrade. * Results by reportable segment(3) for the third quarter of 2020 include the following: * Global Reinsurance produced a $(36) million underwriting loss and a 115% combined ratio. The results included $6 million of losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. Third quarter catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $53 million, as discussed above. Additionally, third quarter losses included $14 million from the August Beirut explosion. * Global A&H produced an $(8) million underwriting (loss), including net service fee income from Armada and IMG of $5 million, and a combined ratio of 112%. These results included $31 million of losses from the COVID-19 pandemic.For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, Sirius Group’s combined ratio was 113% compared to 107% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our underwriting results in the first nine months of 2020 were significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We recorded $192 million of estimated ultimate losses (16 loss ratio points) in our underwriting results with $136 million in the Global Reinsurance, $53 million in the Global A&H, and $3 million in the U.S. Specialty segments. The first nine months of 2020 included 6 points of catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, compared to 11 points for the same period in 2019. The first nine months of 2020 also included minimal (less than a point) net unfavorable prior year loss reserve development compared to 8 points of net unfavorable prior year loss development for the same period in 2019. * Gross written premiums for the first nine months of 2020 were $1,496 million and decreased 2% compared to the first nine months of 2019 primarily due to COVID-19 and client reaction to Sirius Group's rating downgrade.                                                                                                                (2) Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders is a non-GAAP financial measure. See accompanying Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures. (3) Effective January 1, 2020 Sirius Group implemented an internal reorganization which changed its reportable segments. Where applicable, all prior periods presented have been revised to conform to this new presentation. * Highlights by reportable segment for the first nine months of 2020 include the following: * Global Reinsurance produced an $(122) million underwriting (loss) and a 117% combined ratio driven mainly by $136 million of losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 losses contributed 19 points to the combined ratio. Year to date catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $72 million and primarily related to Hurricane Laura ($29 million), an August Midwest derecho ($11 million) and California wildfires ($10 million). Additionally, year to date losses included $14 million from the Beirut explosion. Net unfavorable prior year development for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $15 million as unfavorable prior year loss reserve development in Other Property ($22 million), Aviation & Space ($10 million), and Casualty Reinsurance ($9 million) was partially offset by favorable prior year loss reserve development in Property Catastrophe Excess Reinsurance ($23 million). Additionally, losses from weather derivatives, included in Other revenues, for the first nine months of 2020 were $(22) million driven mainly by a relatively warm U.S. and European winter. * Global A&H produced $8 million of underwriting income, including net service fee income from Armada and IMG of $17 million, and a combined ratio of 103%. These results included $53 million of losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, there was $8 million of net favorable prior year loss reserve development and $4 million of drag from the Group’s build out of Armada Health. * U.S. Specialty produced a $(7) million underwriting (loss) and a 116% combined ratio. Investments and Other * During the third quarter of 2020, the investment portfolio returned 1.8% in original currencies and 2.2% in U.S. Dollars. * Total investment results for the third quarter of 2020, which includes the sum of net investment income, net realized and unrealized investment gains (losses) in net income, and change in foreign currency translation on investments recognized through other comprehensive income, were $74 million, compared to $24 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of $50 million. Included in the third quarter investment results are foreign exchange gains of $17 million in 2020 compared to foreign exchange (losses) of $(20) million in 2019.   * For the first nine months of 2020, the investment portfolio returned 2.3% in original currencies and 2.6% in U.S. Dollars. * Total investment results for the first nine months of 2020 were $94 million, compared to $141 million for the first nine months of 2019, a decrease of $47 million. Included in the first nine months investment results are foreign exchange gains of $20 million in 2020 compared to foreign exchange (losses) of $(23) million in 2019.   * During the third quarter of 2020, the Company incurred $10 million of various legal, advisory, and other consulting costs associated with the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger, by and among the Company, Third Point Reinsurance Ltd. ("TPRE"), and Yoga Merger Sub Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of TPRE. As part of the amount incurred, $2 million is related to reimbursement of certain expenses of CM Bermuda Limited and CMIG International Holding Pte. Ltd. pursuant to the Transaction Matters Letter Agreement entered into on August 6, 2020, among Sirius Group, TPRE, CM Bermuda Limited and CMIG International Holding Pte. Ltd.   * Common shareholders’ equity ended the third quarter of 2020 at $1,459 million compared to $1,640 million at December 31, 2019.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresTangible book value and Tangible book value per common shareTangible book value and Tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures. Tangible book value and Tangible book value per common share are useful to investors because they measure the realizable value of common shareholder returns, excluding the impact of goodwill, intangible assets, and net deferred liability on intangible assets.Tangible book value is derived by subtracting Goodwill, Intangible assets and Net deferred tax liability on intangible assets from book value. Tangible book value per common share is derived by dividing Tangible book value by the Common shares outstanding.The reconciliation to Total common shareholders’ equity and Book value per common share, the most directly comparable GAAP measures, are presented in the table below.  September 30, December 31, (Expressed in millions of U.S. dollars, except share and per share amounts)2020 2019 Common shares outstanding115,299,341   115,299,341        Total common shareholders’ equity$1,459.2  $1,640.4  Goodwill(400.8) (400.8) Intangible assets(168.0) (179.8) Net deferred tax liability on intangible assets19.1  22.8  Tangible book value$909.5  $1,082.6       Book value per common share$12.66  $14.23  Tangible book value per common share$7.89  $9.39  Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholdersThe Company uses Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders as a measure to evaluate the underlying fundamentals of its operations and believes it to be a useful measure of its core performance. Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders as used herein differs from net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders, which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, by the exclusion of net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments, net foreign exchange gains (losses) and the associated income tax expense or benefit. The Company’s management believes that Operating (loss) attributable to common shareholders is useful to investors because it is more reflective of the Company’s core business, as it removes the variability arising from fluctuations in the Company’s fixed maturity investment portfolio, equity investments trading, investments-related derivatives, and net foreign exchange gains (losses) and the associated income tax expense or benefit of those fluctuations.
