Second Quarter Operating Results

  • Gross premiums written were $800.3 million, a 3.1% decrease, compared to $826.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 as all three segments declined.
    • The North American Insurance segment decreased 1.8% to $508.4 million, led by declines in property and casualty, partially offset by growth in programs and other specialty lines.
    • The Global Markets Insurance segment decreased 7.1% to $125.4 million, driven by reductions across multiple lines in the European business, as conditions remain challenging in that region, but partially offset by an increase in the Asia Pacific business.
    • The Reinsurance segment decreased 4.0% to $166.5 million, driven by declines in property.
  • The company experienced $20.9 million, or 3.5 points, of catastrophe losses in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $25.0 million, or 3.9 points, in the second quarter of 2015. Within the Reinsurance segment, losses of $6.0 million arose from the April hailstorm in Texas and losses of $10.3 million arose from the Fort McMurray wildfires. Within the North American Insurance segment, losses of $4.6 million arose from the April hailstorm in Texas.
  • Underwriting income was $45.4 million, compared to underwriting income of $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2015.
  • The combined ratio was 92.5%, compared to 99.2% in the second quarter of 2015.
  • The loss and loss expense ratio was 60.6% in the second quarter of 2016, compared to 66.8% in the prior year quarter. During the second quarter of 2016, the company recorded net favorable reserve development on prior loss years of $37.8 million, a benefit of 6.3 percentage points to the loss and loss expense ratio, compared to $21.8 million a year ago, a benefit of 3.4 percentage points. All three segments benefited from net favorable reserve development this quarter.
  • The company's expense ratio was 31.8% for the second quarter of 2016, compared to 32.4% for the second quarter of 2015. This improvement was largely driven by the lower acquisition cost ratio in the Global Markets Insurance segment.

Investment Results

  • The total financial statement return on the company's investment portfolio for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was 1.4%, compared to 0.3% for the three months ended June 30, 2015.
  • Net investment income increased 30.6% compared to the prior year quarter as a result of positive contributions across most components, including fixed maturity investments, hedge funds and private equity and Allied World Financial Services.
  • Net realized gains of $74.5 million were a significant contributor to the total return as compared to the prior year period, when rising bond yields in the fixed income portfolio drove net realized losses of $20.2 million for the second quarter of 2015.
  • See the table below for the components of our investment returns:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In presenting the company's results, management has included and discussed in this press release certain non-generally accepted accounting principles ("non-GAAP") financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G as promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures, which may be defined differently by other companies, better explain the company's results of operations in a manner that allows for a more complete understanding of the underlying trends in the company's business. However, these measures should not be viewed as a substitute for those determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP").

"Operating income" is an internal performance measure used in the management of the company's operations and represents after-tax operational results excluding, as applicable, net realized investment gains or losses, net foreign exchange gain or loss, and other non-recurring items. The company excludes net realized investment gains or losses, net foreign exchange gain or loss, and other non-recurring items from the calculation of operating income because these amounts are heavily influenced by and fluctuate in part according to the availability of market opportunities and other factors. In addition to presenting net income determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the company believes that showing operating income enables investors, analysts, rating agencies and other users of the company's financial information to more easily analyze our results of operations and underlying business performance. Operating income should not be viewed as a substitute for U.S. GAAP net income.

"Annualized return on average shareholders' equity" ("ROAE") is calculated using average shareholders’ equity, excluding the average after tax other comprehensive income or loss, which may include unrealized gains (losses) on investments or currency translation adjustments. Unrealized gains (losses) on investments are primarily the result of interest rate and credit spread movements and the resultant impact on fixed income securities. Such gains (losses) are not related to management actions or operational performance, nor are they likely to be realized. Therefore, the company believes that excluding these amounts provides a more consistent and useful measurement of operating performance, which supplements U.S. GAAP information. In calculating ROAE, the net income (loss) available to shareholders for the period is multiplied by the number of such periods in a calendar year in order to arrive at annualized net income (loss) available to shareholders. The company presents ROAE as a measure that is commonly recognized as a standard of performance by investors, analysts, rating agencies and other users of its financial information.

"Annualized operating return on average shareholders' equity" is calculated using operating income (as defined above and annualized in the manner described for net income (loss) available to shareholders under ROAE above), and average shareholders' equity, excluding the average after tax unrealized gains (losses) on investments or currency translation adjustments. Unrealized gains (losses) are excluded from equity for the reasons outlined in the ROAE explanation above.

"Tangible shareholders' equity and diluted book value per share" is calculated using total shareholders' equity excluding goodwill and intangible assets, because it represents a more liquid measure of the company's net assets than total shareholders' equity. The company also has included diluted book value per share because it takes into account the effect of dilutive securities; therefore, the company believes it is an important measure of calculating shareholder returns.

Reconciliations of these financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures are included in the attached tables.
