Management Commentary

Chief Executive Officer Katherine Antonello commented: “I am very pleased with our third quarter 2022 results. Our written and earned premiums have risen sharply in both the current quarter and the first nine months, and for the eighth consecutive quarter we achieved a record number of policies in-force. This growth resulted from strong new and renewal business writings within our Employers segment, robust new business writings within our Cerity segment and further audit premium recognition.

We maintained our current accident year loss and LAE ratio on voluntary business at 64.0%, largely consistent with the 63.5% we recorded throughout 2021. We did not adjust our loss and LAE reserves this period as our third quarter reserve review was consistent with our expectations. We will evaluate our prior year reserves in more detail at year-end when we routinely perform a full reserve study.”

Ms. Antonello continued, "We remain committed to maintaining the highest level of underwriting discipline as we continue to thoughtfully execute our growth strategy for both Employers and Cerity. The additional classes of business that we are writing are complementary to our business model and are contributing nicely to our top-line growth. In addition, our consolidated underwriting expense ratio of 23.4% this quarter is the lowest it has been since the fourth quarter of 2018.

Our Cerity operations, which offers digital workers' compensation insurance solutions directly to consumers, experienced meaningful premium growth again this quarter, due to both its appetite expansion and its collaboration with Intuit’s QuickBooks and, more recently, Thimble. Cerity expects to develop additional strategic opportunities which will support our growth initiatives by attracting an untapped segment of our target market.

The sharp increases in market interest rates that have occurred throughout the first nine months of 2022 have significantly benefited our net investment income while generating unrealized investment losses from our short duration fixed maturity portfolio. When coupled with unrealized losses from our equity portfolio, the impact was a decline in our book value and book value per share metrics.

Our balance sheet and underwriting capital remain very strong and are highly supportive of our continued growth and success.”

Summary of Third Quarter 2022 Results

(All comparisons vs. the third quarter of 2021, unless noted otherwise).

Gross premiums written were $188.6 million, an increase of 24%. The increase was primarily due to higher new and renewal premiums and higher final audit premiums. Net premiums earned were $178.7 million, an increase of 21%.

Losses and loss adjustment expenses were $112.3 million, an increase of 23%. The increase was primarily due to higher earned premiums. The Company did not recognize any prior year loss reserve development on its voluntary business during the third quarters of 2022 and 2021.

Commission expenses were $25.3 million, an increase of 27%. The increase was due primarily to higher earned premiums and higher 2022 agency incentive accruals.

Underwriting and general and administrative expenses were $41.9 million, an increase of 12%. The increase resulted primarily from higher premium taxes, assessments and bad debt expenses, each of which vary with earned premium.

Net investment income was $23.7 million, an increase of 29%. The increase was primarily due to higher bond yields and higher invested balances of fixed maturity securities and cash and cash equivalents, as measured by amortized cost.

Income tax expense was $4.7 million (19.7% effective rate) versus $3.6 million (19.4% effective rate). The effective rates during each of the periods presented included income tax benefits and exclusions associated with tax-advantaged investment income, LPT adjustments, and deferred gain amortization.

The Company’s book value per share of $33.79 and book value per share including the Deferred Gain of $37.77 decreased by 5% and 4% during the third quarter of 2022, respectively, computed after taking into account dividends declared. These measures were adversely impacted by $60.3 million of after-tax unrealized losses arising from fixed maturity securities (which are reflected on the balance sheet) and $2.4 million of net after tax unrealized losses arising from equity securities and other investments (which are reflected on the income statement).

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP

The information in this press release should be read in conjunction with the Financial Supplement that is attached to this press release and is available on our website.

Within this earnings release we present various financial measures, some of which are “Non-GAAP financial measures” as defined in Regulation G pursuant to Section 401 of the Sarbanes - Oxley Act of 2002. A description of these Non-GAAP financial measures, as well as a reconciliation of such Non-GAAP measures to our most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the attached Financial Supplement. Management believes that these Non-GAAP measures are important to the Company's investors, analysts and other interested parties who benefit from having an objective and consistent basis for comparison with other companies within our industry. Management further believes that these measures are more relevant than comparable GAAP measures in evaluating our financial performance.

The Company and its management caution investors that such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Risks and uncertainties are inherent in the Company’s future performance. Factors that could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements include, among other things, those discussed or identified from time to time in the Company’s public filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including the risks detailed in the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Within this earnings release we present the following measures, each of which are "non-GAAP financial measures." A reconciliation of these measures to the Company's most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included herein. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures are important to the Company's investors, analysts and other interested parties who benefit from having an objective and consistent basis for comparison with other companies within our industry. Management further believes that these measures are more relevant than comparable GAAP measures in evaluating our financial performance.

The LPT Agreement is a non-recurring transaction that does not result in ongoing cash benefits to the Company. Management believes that providing non-GAAP measures that exclude the effects of the LPT Agreement (amortization of deferred reinsurance gain, adjustments to LPT Agreement ceded reserves and adjustments to contingent commission receivable) is useful in providing investors, analysts and other interested parties a meaningful understanding of the Company's ongoing underwriting performance.

Deferred reinsurance gain (Deferred Gain) reflects the unamortized gain from the LPT Agreement. This gain has been deferred and is being amortized using the recovery method, whereby the amortization is determined by the proportion of actual reinsurance recoveries to total estimated recoveries, except for the contingent profit commission, which is being amortized through June 30, 2024. Amortization is reflected in losses and LAE incurred.

Adjusted net income (see Page 3 for calculations) is net income excluding the effects of the LPT Agreement, and net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments (net of tax), and any miscellaneous non-recurring transactions (net of tax). Management believes that providing this non-GAAP measures is helpful to investors, analysts and other interested parties in identifying trends in the Company's operating performance because such items have limited significance to its ongoing operations or can be impacted by both discretionary and other economic factors and may not represent operating trends.

Stockholders' equity including the Deferred Gain (see Page 11 for calculations) is stockholders' equity including the Deferred Gain. Management believes that providing this non-GAAP measure is useful in providing investors, analysts and other interested parties a meaningful measure of the Company's total underwriting capital.

Adjusted stockholders' equity (see Page 11 for calculations) is stockholders' equity including the Deferred Gain, less accumulated other comprehensive income (net of tax). Management believes that providing this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors, analysts and other interested parties since it serves as the denominator to the Company's adjusted return on stockholders' equity metric.

Return on stockholders' equity and Adjusted return on stockholders' equity (see Page 8 for calculations). Management believes that these profitability measures are widely used by our investors, analysts and other interested parties.

Book value per share, Book value per share including the Deferred Gain, and Adjusted book value per share (see Page 11 for calculations). Management believes that these valuation measures are widely used by our investors, analysts and other interested parties.

Net income before impact of the LPT (see Page 3 for calculations). Management believes that these performance and underwriting measures are widely used by our investors, analysts and other interested parties.

Description of Reportable Segments

The Company has determined that it has two reportable segments: Employers and Cerity. Each of these segments represents a separate and distinct distribution channel through which the Company conducts insurance business.

The nature and composition of each reportable segment and its Corporate and Other activities are as follows:

  • The Employers segment represents the traditional business offered through the EMPLOYERS brand name (Employers) through its agents, including business originated from its strategic partnerships and alliances;
  • The Cerity segment represents the as business offered under the Cerity brand name, which includes the Company's direct-to-customer business; and
  • Corporate and Other activities consist of those holding company expenses that are not considered to be underwriting in nature, the financial impact of the LPT Agreement and legacy (pre-acquisition) business assumed and ceded by Cerity Insurance Company. These expenses are not considered to be part of a reportable segment and are not otherwise allocated to a reportable segment.
