SiriusPoint Announces Third Quarter 2021 Earnings Results

·30-min read

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SiriusPoint Ltd. (“SiriusPoint” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SPNT) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Net loss of $48 million, or $0.34 per diluted common share

  • Tangible diluted book value per share decreased $0.23, or 1.6%, from the second quarter of 2021 to $14.07

  • Combined ratio of 152% and net underwriting loss of $266 million

  • Catastrophe losses were $287 million or 56 percentage points on the Company’s combined ratio, including $132 million for the European floods and $100 million for Hurricane Ida

  • Annualized return on average common equity of (7.8)%

  • Net investment income of $200 million, including 16.3% return from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund

  • $369 million loss portfolio transfer transaction with the Compre Group executed on October 29 will be reflected in 4Q financials

Sid Sankaran, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SiriusPoint, said: “The losses the industry has reported - not just this quarter but in the past few years - serve to validate our focus on managing the volatility of our Property business, as we continue to implement the changes identified by our line-by-line business review. We are making strong progress exiting risks that no longer fit our risk profile or where we do not see attractive risk adjusted returns - the full impact of our efforts will materialize next year due to the heavy January renewal nature of the business. Our losses are offset this quarter by strong returns from our investment portfolio.

“Our focus remains on delivering sustainable underwriting profitability to create value for our shareholders. This will be achieved by reallocating capital away from property cat and investment risk into our MGA platform within Insurance & Services, combined with rigorous risk management and disciplined underwriting. We expect our actions and improvements each quarter to deliver progress towards the transformational and profitable company we are seeking to become.”

Third Quarter 2021 Summary

Underwriting Results

The acquisition of Sirius Group, which occurred on February 26, 2021, has created a highly diversified portfolio with expanded underwriting capabilities, geographic footprint and product offerings. Effective January 1, 2021, the Company reports four operating segments: Accident & Health (“A&H”), Specialty, Property and Runoff & Other.

In addition, effective January 1, 2021, the Company changed its accounting policy for assumed written premium recognition. Previously, the Company estimated ultimate premium written for the entire contract period and recorded this estimate at inception of the contract. The Company changed its accounting policy to recognize premiums written ratably over the term of the related policy or reinsurance treaty. The change in accounting policy had no impact on the previously reported net income (loss) or shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders. Prior period segment results have been adjusted to conform to the current period presentation.

Net premiums earned increased by $370.4 million, or 261.4%, to $512.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $141.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in net premiums earned of $390.6 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies.

Net premiums earned increased by $805.5 million, or 187.8%, to $1,234.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 from $428.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in net premiums earned of $866.4 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies from the date of acquisition.

We generated a net underwriting loss of $265.8 million and a combined ratio of 151.9% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net underwriting loss of $29.7 million and a combined ratio of 121.0% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The change in net underwriting results was primarily driven by catastrophe losses from the European floods and Hurricane Ida.

We generated a net underwriting loss of $223.8 million and a combined ratio of 118.1% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net underwriting loss of $27.3 million and a combined ratio of 106.3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The adverse effect on underwriting results again was primarily driven by catastrophe losses from the European floods and Hurricane Ida.

Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were $286.5 million, or 55.9 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $132 million for the European floods and $100 million for Hurricane Ida, based on our ground-up assessment of client exposed business to each event and a top-down estimate, based on industry loss for each event, which are consistent with our view of industry loss estimates of $14 billion and $40 billion, respectively, and an estimate of our market share. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $29.6 million, or 20.9 percentage points on the combined ratio, related to Hurricane Laura and other third quarter catastrophes.

Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were $304.9 million, or 24.7 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $132 million for the European floods, $100 million for Hurricane Ida, and other catastrophes. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $29.6 million, or 6.9 percentage points on the combined ratio, related to Hurricane Laura and other third quarter catastrophes.

A&H Segment

Gross premiums written in the A&H segment were $118.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $117.9 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $118.1 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies.

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the A&H segment generated net underwriting income of $15.2 million and a combined ratio of 86.4%, compared to net underwriting income of $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The change in net underwriting results for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, was primarily driven by favorable loss ratio trends in its healthcare products due to the recognition of lower healthcare utilization rates that we attribute to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Specialty Segment

Gross premiums written in the Specialty segment were $350.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $271.9 million, or 344.2%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $181.5 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies and due to an increase in premium written from our new MGA partnerships, in which we invest capital and expertise.

The Specialty segment generated a net underwriting loss of $6.4 million and a combined ratio of 102.6% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net underwriting loss of $1.3 million and a combined ratio of 101.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Property Segment

Gross premiums written in the Property segment were $182.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $139.4 million, or 327.2%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily driven by an increase in premiums of $173.2 million as a result of new premiums from the legacy Sirius Group companies.

The Property segment generated a net underwriting loss of $264.7 million and a combined ratio of 275.6% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net underwriting loss of $27.0 million and a combined ratio of 154.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The change in underwriting results for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, was primarily driven by increased catastrophe losses from the European floods and Hurricane Ida.

Runoff & Other Segment

Gross premiums written in the Runoff & Other segment were $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, a decrease of $0.2 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020.

The Runoff & Other segment generated a net underwriting loss of $9.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net underwriting loss of $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, other underwriting expenses include $9.8 million of expenses, of which $7.1 million was accelerated during the third quarter of 2021, relating to interest crediting features in certain reinsurance and deposit contracts, compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. We will reassess capacity to underwrite these risks in the future as a result of the loss portfolio transfer.

Investments

Net investment income was $199.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to net investment income of $122.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Net investment income for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to net investment income of $201.0 million. from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a 16.3% return. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, net investment income from the TP Enhanced Fund totaled $398.8 million, corresponding to a 38.3% return. The returns were primarily attributable to long event/fundamental and activist equities, in particular strong performance from the fund’s largest positions.

Net investment income for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was primarily attributable to net investment income of $110.6 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a 14.6% return. Equity markets continued to rebound with technology-oriented stocks leading out-performance globally.

Loss Portfolio Transfer with the Compre Group

On July 30, 2021, we agreed, subject to applicable regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, to enter into a loss portfolio transfer transaction with Pallas Reinsurance Company Ltd., a subsidiary of the Compre Group, an insurance and reinsurance legacy specialist, and on October 29, 2021, we executed definitive agreements in respect of the loss portfolio transfer and the services to be provided in connection therewith (collectively, the “LPT”). The LPT covers $369 million of the Company’s loss reserves for the subject business, including much of the legacy Sirius Group runoff portfolio, including asbestos and environmental lines, for a premium of $388 million. We will recognize an estimated net charge of $23 million, including approximately $4 million of federal excise tax expense, in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to post-closing adjustments.

Our transaction with the Compre Group underscores the ongoing transformation of SiriusPoint, our focus on optimizing capital allocation and rebalancing towards insurance and higher margin and growth lines, and provides further certainty on SiriusPoint’s reserve position. Following the completion of the LPT, our net loss reserves from Runoff business were reduced by 46%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Financial Metrics

In presenting SiriusPoint’s results, management has included financial measures that are not calculated under standards or rules that comprise accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). SiriusPoint’s management uses this information in its internal analysis of results and believes that this information may be informative to investors in gauging the quality of SiriusPoint’s financial performance, identifying trends in our results and providing meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Book value per share metrics are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that long-term growth in book value per share is an important measure of our financial performance because it allows our management and investors to track over time the value created by the retention of earnings. In addition, we believe this metric is used by investors because it provides a basis for comparison with other companies in our industry that also report a similar measure. Reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures are included in the attached financial information in accordance with Regulation G.

Key Performance Indicator

Annualized Return on Average Common Shareholders’ Equity Attributable to SiriusPoint Common Shareholders

Annualized return on average common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders is calculated by dividing annualized net income (loss) available to SiriusPoint common shareholders for the period by the average common shareholders’ equity determined using the common shareholders' equity balances at the beginning and end of the period.

Annualized return on average common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 was calculated as follows:

Net Underwriting Income (Loss)

We measure segment performance for our underwriting segments based on net underwriting income or loss. Net underwriting income is a pre-tax measure of underwriting profitability that takes into account net premiums earned as revenues, including service fee revenue from the Company’s managing general underwriting subsidiaries, and loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred, net, acquisition costs, net, and other underwriting expenses as expenses. Other underwriting expenses include those operating expenses that are incremental and/or directly attributable to our individual underwriting operations. See the accompanying Segment Reporting above for a calculation of net underwriting income (loss).

Combined Ratio

Combined ratio is calculated by dividing the sum of loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred, net, acquisition costs, net and other underwriting expenses by net premiums earned. This ratio is a key indicator of a company’s underwriting profitability. See the accompanying Segment Reporting above for a calculation of the combined ratio.

Basic Book Value Per Share, Tangible Basic Book Value Per Share, Diluted Book Value Per Share, Tangible Diluted Book Value Per Share

Basic book value per share, as presented, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by dividing common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders by the number of common shares outstanding, excluding the total number of issued unvested restricted shares, at period end.

Tangible basic book value per share, as presented, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders by the number of common shares outstanding, excluding the total number of unvested restricted shares, at period end. Tangible book value per share is useful to investors because it measures the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of intangible assets.

Diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share, as presented, are non-GAAP financial measures and are calculated using the treasury stock method. Under the treasury stock method, we assume that proceeds received from in-the-money options and/or warrants exercised are used to repurchase common shares in the market. The dilutive effect of restricted shares, restricted share units and options are calculated in a manner consistent with how dilution is calculated using the treasury stock method for earnings per share. We have also followed a similar approach for calculating dilution for warrants, Series A preference shares, Upside Rights and other potentially dilutive securities issued as part of our acquisition of Sirius Group.

The following table sets forth the of basic book value per share, tangible basic book value per share, diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020:
