  • Net Loss1 And Net Operating Loss2 Included $548 Million After-Tax, Or $1.10 Per Diluted Share, Of Net Unfavorable Items Relating To Increase To Long Term Care Insurance (LTC) Claim Reserves & Deferred Tax Charges
  • Strong Loss Ratio, New Insurance Written (NIW) And Capital Levels In U.S. Mortgage Insurance (MI)

Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW) today reported results for the period ended September 30, 2016. The company reported a net loss of $380 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2016, compared with a net loss of $284 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015. The net operating loss for the third quarter of 2016 was $405 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, compared with net operating income of $64 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015. The net loss and net operating loss included $548 million after-tax, or $1.10 per diluted share, of net unfavorable items discussed below.

As previously announced, during the third quarter of 2016, the company completed a review of its LTC claim reserves. The company made several changes to its assumptions and methodologies primarily impacting claim terminations, benefit utilization and incurred but not reported reserves. As a result of these changes, claim reserves were increased by approximately $435 million pre-tax resulting in a charge to earnings of $283 million after-tax, or $0.57 per diluted share. Additionally, the company recorded a non-cash charge of $265 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, related to deferred tax assets that are not expected to be utilized before their expiration in light of the company's latest financial projections, including the impact to current and future earnings associated with higher expected claim costs in LTC and sustained low interest rates.

"While our mortgage insurance performance remained strong, it was overshadowed by the previously announced charges related to the review of our LTC claim reserves and taxes," said Tom McInerney, President and CEO. "LTC remains challenged, but we continue to receive significant premium rate increases and remain focused on executing our multi-year rate action plan."

The net loss was impacted by net investment gains, net of taxes and other adjustments, of $12 million in the quarter, compared to net investment losses of $21 million in the prior year. The net loss in the prior year reflected an after-tax loss of $296 million related to a write-off of deferred acquisition costs (DAC) from entering into a life block sale.

Net investment income increased to $805 million in the quarter, up from $779 million in the prior quarter and up from $783 million in the prior year. Prepayment speed adjustments related to residential mortgage-backed securities were favorable versus both the prior quarter and prior year in addition to favorable variable investment income compared to the prior quarter. The reported yield and core yield2 for the current quarter were 4.62 percent and 4.51 percent, respectively.

U.S. MI net operating income was $67 million, compared with $61 million in the prior quarter and $37 million in the prior year. The loss ratio in the current quarter was 21 percent, down three points sequentially and down 22 points from the prior year primarily reflecting the continued decline and improved performance in delinquencies from the 2005 to 2008 book years. During the quarter, the company made a favorable $6 million after-tax adjustment to its loss reserves associated with lower expected claim rates on early stage delinquencies, partially offset by higher claim severity on late stage delinquencies. This adjustment favorably impacted the loss ratio by six points.

Flow NIW of $12.8 billion increased 12 percent from the prior quarter and 38 percent versus the prior year primarily from a larger purchase originations market and higher refinance originations from lower interest rates. During the third quarter of 2016, the company's concentration of single premium flow NIW was lower than the prior quarter and the prior year as it continues its selective participation in this market.

Canada MI reported net operating income of $36 million versus $38 million in the prior quarter and the prior year. The loss ratio in the quarter was 24 percent, up four points from the prior quarter and up three points compared to the prior year primarily from an increase in new delinquencies, net of cures, in oil-producing regions. Results versus the prior quarter and prior year included increased earned premiums from a higher level of NIW in recent years.

Flow NIW was up 20 percent5 sequentially primarily from a seasonally larger originations market and down 18 percent5 from the prior year primarily from targeted underwriting changes in select markets and a smaller  market size. In addition, the company completed several bulk transactions in the quarter of $5.1 billion, consisting of high quality low loan-to-value prime loans.

Australia MI reported net operating income of $14 million versus $15 million in the prior quarter and $21 million in the prior year. The loss ratio in the quarter was 42 percent, up six points sequentially and up 13 points from the prior year. Continued unfavorable experience primarily from the commodity dependent regions of Queensland and Western Australia contributed to unfavorable aging of existing delinquencies versus the prior quarter and prior year as well as a 16 percent increase in new delinquencies versus the prior year. Results in the prior year included actuarial updates that had a negligible impact on earnings, but did unfavorably impact the prior year loss ratio by approximately seven points.

Flow NIW was down eight percent5 sequentially and down 27 percent5 from the prior year from a smaller high loan-to-value originations market.

Long Term Care Insurance

LTC had a net operating loss of $270 million, compared with net operating income of $37 million in the prior quarter and a net operating loss of $10 million in the prior year. During the quarter, the company completed its annual review of assumptions and methodologies related to its LTC claim reserves. Based on this review, which included an additional year of claims experience since the last annual review in the third quarter of 2015, the company updated several assumptions and methodologies related to LTC claim reserves. The updates included the following:

  • Reflected differences in claim termination rate assumptions between product types and daily benefit amounts;
  • Reduced claim termination rate assumptions for longer duration claims for certain product types;
  • Modestly refined utilization rate assumptions; and
  • Refined methodology primarily related to the calculation of incurred but not reported reserves to better reflect the aging of the block.

As a result of this review, the company increased LTC claim reserves by approximately $435 million pre-tax resulting in an after-tax charge to earnings of $283 million for the third quarter. The updated assumptions also increased new claim severity versus the prior quarter and prior year. 

Results for the quarter included a less favorable impact from higher premiums and reduced benefit options of $4 million after-tax versus the prior quarter and a more favorable impact of $35 million after-tax versus the prior year related to premium increases from in force rate actions approved and implemented to date.

Results in the prior quarter included $29 million after-tax of net unfavorable adjustments while results in the prior year included $21 million of after-tax unfavorable items.

Life Insurance

Life insurance had net operating income of $48 million, compared with $31 million in the prior quarter and the prior year. Results versus the prior quarter reflect higher investment income from favorable prepayment speed adjustments related to residential mortgage-backed securities as well as favorable in force performance and lower expenses. Results versus the prior year reflected lower reinsurance expenses.

Fixed Annuities

Fixed annuities had net operating income of $15 million, compared with a net operating loss of $13 million in the prior quarter and net operating income of $19 million in the prior year. Results in the quarter include an $8 million after-tax unfavorable correction related to state guaranty funds, partially offset by favorable variable investment income versus the prior quarter. Results in the prior quarter included $28 million after-tax of unfavorable items.

Runoff

Runoff net operating income was $12 million, compared with net operating income of $6 million in the prior quarter and a net operating loss of $4 million in the prior year.

Corporate And Other

Corporate and Other net operating loss was $327 million, compared with $52 million in the prior quarter and $68 million in the prior year. Results in the quarter reflected $265 million of deferred tax charges.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures entitled "net operating income (loss)" and "net operating income (loss) per common share." Net operating income (loss) per common share is derived from net operating income (loss). The chief operating decision maker evaluates segment performance and allocates resources on the basis of net operating income (loss). The company defines net operating income (loss) as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effects of income attributable to noncontrolling interests, net investment gains (losses), goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions, restructuring costs and infrequent or unusual non-operating items. Gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are defined as gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of non-recourse funding obligations, early termination fees for other financing restructuring and/or resulting gains (losses) on reinsurance restructuring for certain blocks of business. The company excludes net investment gains (losses) and infrequent or unusual non-operating items because the company does not consider them to be related to the operating performance of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities. A component of the company's net investment gains (losses) is the result of impairments, the size and timing of which can vary significantly depending on market credit cycles. In addition, the size and timing of other investment gains (losses) can be subject to the company's discretion and are influenced by market opportunities, as well as asset-liability matching considerations. Goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions and restructuring costs are also excluded from net operating income (loss) because, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. Infrequent or unusual non-operating items are also excluded from net operating income (loss) if, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. 

While some of these items may be significant components of net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders in accordance with GAAP, the company believes that net operating income (loss) and measures that are derived from or incorporate net operating income (loss), including net operating income (loss) per common share on a basic and diluted basis, are appropriate measures that are useful to investors because they identify the income (loss) attributable to the ongoing operations of the business. Management also uses net operating income (loss) as a basis for determining awards and compensation for senior management and to evaluate performance on a basis comparable to that used by analysts. However, the items excluded from net operating income (loss) have occurred in the past and could, and in some cases will, recur in the future. Net operating income (loss) and net operating income (loss) per common share on a basic and diluted basis are not substitutes for net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders or net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders per common share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of net operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.

Adjustments to reconcile net income (loss) attributable to Genworth's common stockholders and net operating income (loss) assume a 35 percent tax rate (unless otherwise indicated) and are net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests. Net investment gains (losses) are also adjusted for DAC and other intangible amortization and certain benefit reserves.

In June 2016, the company completed the sale of its term life insurance new business platform and recorded a pre-tax gain of $12 million. In May 2016, the company completed the sale of its mortgage insurance business in Europe and recorded an additional pre-tax loss of $2 million. The company also incurred a tax charge of $7 million in the third quarter of 2015 from potential business portfolio changes related to this business. These transactions were excluded from net operating income (loss) for the periods presented as they related to a gain (loss) on the sale of businesses.

In June 2016, the company settled restricted borrowings of $70 million related to a securitization entity and recorded a $64 million pre-tax gain related to the early extinguishment of debt. In the third quarter of 2015, the company paid an early redemption payment of approximately $1 million, net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests, related to the early redemption of Genworth Financial Mortgage Insurance Pty Limited's notes that were scheduled to mature in 2021. In the third quarter of 2015, the company also repurchased approximately $50 million principal amount of Genworth Holdings, Inc.'s notes with various maturity dates for a pre-tax loss of $1 million. These transactions were excluded from net operating income (loss) for the periods presented as they related to a gain (loss) on the early extinguishment of debt.

In the third quarter of 2015, the company recorded a pre-tax DAC impairment of $455 million on certain term life insurance policies in connection with entering into an agreement to complete a life block transaction.

In the third and second quarters of 2016, the company recorded a pre-tax expense of $2 million and $5 million, respectively, related to restructuring costs as part of an expense reduction plan as the company evaluates and appropriately sizes its organizational needs and expenses.

There were no infrequent or unusual items excluded from net operating income (loss) during the periods presented.

The tables at the end of this press release reflect net operating income (loss) as determined in accordance with accounting guidance related to segment reporting, and a reconciliation of net operating income (loss) of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities to net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, as well as for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure entitled "core yield" as a measure of investment yield. The company defines core yield as the investment yield adjusted for items that do not reflect the underlying performance of the investment portfolio. Management believes that analysis of core yield enhances understanding of the investment yield of the company. However, core yield is not a substitute for investment yield determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of core yield may differ from the definitions used by other companies. A reconciliation of core yield to reported GAAP yield is included in a table at the end of this press release.

Definition of Selected Operating Performance Measures

The company reports selected operating performance measures including "sales" and "insurance in force" or "risk in force" which are commonly used in the insurance industry as measures of operating performance.

Management regularly monitors and reports sales metrics as a measure of volume of new and renewal business generated in a period. Sales refer to: (1) new insurance written for mortgage insurance; (2) annualized first-year premiums for long term care and term life insurance products; (3) annualized first-year deposits plus five percent of excess deposits for universal and term universal life insurance products; (4) 10 percent of premium deposits for linked-benefits products; and (5) new and additional premiums/deposits for fixed annuities. Sales do not include renewal premiums on policies or contracts written during prior periods. The company considers new insurance written, annualized first-year premiums/deposits, premium equivalents and new premiums/deposits to be a measure of the company's operating performance because they represent a measure of new sales of insurance policies or contracts during a specified period, rather than a measure of the company's revenues or profitability during that period.

Management also regularly monitors and reports a loss ratio for the company's businesses. For the mortgage insurance businesses, the loss ratio is the ratio of incurred losses and loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. For the long term care insurance business, the loss ratio is the ratio of benefits and other changes in reserves less tabular interest on reserves less loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. The company considers the loss ratio to be a measure of underwriting performance in these businesses and helps to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the businesses.

An assumed tax rate of 35 percent is utilized in certain adjustments to net operating income (loss) and in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance and investment results.

These operating performance measures enable the company to compare its operating performance across periods without regard to revenues or profitability related to policies or contracts sold in prior periods or from investments or other sources.

  • liquidity, financial strength ratings, credit and counterparty risks including: insufficient internal sources to meet liquidity needs and limited or no access to capital (including the company's inability to replace its credit facility); recent or future adverse rating agency actions, including with respect to rating downgrades or potential downgrades or being put on review for potential downgrade (including in connection with the company's recent announcement of a material increase to the company's long term care insurance claim reserves), all of which could have adverse implications for the company, including with respect to key business relationships, product offerings, business results of operations, financial condition and capital needs, strategic plans, collateral obligations and availability and terms of hedging, reinsurance and borrowings; defaults by counterparties to reinsurance arrangements or derivative instruments; defaults or other events impacting the value of the company's fixed maturity securities portfolio; and defaults on the company's commercial mortgage loans or the mortgage loans underlying its investments in commercial mortgage-backed securities and volatility in performance;
  • operational risks including: inability to retain, attract and motivate qualified employees or senior management; ineffective or inadequate risk management in identifying, controlling or mitigating risks; reliance on, and loss of, key customer or distribution relationships; availability, affordability and adequacy of reinsurance to protect the company against losses; competition; competition in the company's mortgage insurance businesses from government and government-owned and government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) offering mortgage insurance; material weakness in, or ineffective, internal control over financial reporting; and failure or any compromise of the security of the company's computer systems, disaster recovery systems and business continuity plans and failures to safeguard, or breaches of, its confidential information;
  • insurance and product-related risks including: the company's inability to increase sufficiently, and in a timely manner, premiums on in force long term care insurance policies and/or reduce in force benefits, and charge higher premiums on new policies, in each case, as currently anticipated and as may be required from time to time in the future (including as a result of the company's failure to obtain any necessary regulatory approvals or unwillingness or inability of policyholders to pay increased premiums), including to offset the impact on the company's margins of updated claim reserves assumptions in connection with its annual review of its long term care insurance claim reserves in the third quarter of 2016 and its margin reviews in the fourth quarter of 2016; the company's inability to reflect future premium increases and other management actions in its margin calculation as anticipated, including in connection with its margin reviews in the fourth quarter of 2016; failure to sufficiently increase new sales for the company's long term care insurance products; inability to realize anticipated benefits of the company's rescissions, curtailments, loan modifications or other similar programs in its mortgage insurance businesses; premiums for the significant portion of the company's mortgage insurance risk in force with high loan-to-value ratios may not be sufficient to compensate the company for the greater risks associated with those policies; decreases in the volume of high loan-to-value mortgage originations or increases in mortgage insurance cancellations; increases in the use of alternatives to private mortgage insurance and reductions in the level of coverage selected; potential liabilities in connection with the company's U.S. contract underwriting services; and medical advances, such as genetic research and diagnostic imaging, and related legislation that impact policyholder behavior in ways adverse to the company;
  • other risks including: occurrence of natural or man-made disasters or a pandemic; impairments of or valuation allowances against the company's deferred tax assets; the possibility that in certain circumstances the company will be obligated to make payments to General Electric Company (GE) under the tax matters agreement with GE even if its corresponding tax savings are never realized and payments could be accelerated in the event of certain changes in control; and provisions of the company's certificate of incorporation and bylaws and the tax matters agreement with GE may discourage takeover attempts and business combinations that stockholders might consider in their best interests; and
  • risks relating to the company's common stock including: the continued suspension of payment of dividends; and stock price fluctuations.

The company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

______________________________

1 Unless otherwise stated, all references in this press release to net income (loss), net income (loss) per share, net operating income (loss), net operating income (loss) per share and book value per share should be read as net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders, net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders per diluted share, net operating income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders, net operating income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders per diluted share and book value available to Genworth's common stockholders per share, respectively.

2 This is a financial measure not calculated based on U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (Non-GAAP).  See the Use of Non-GAAP Measures section of this press release for additional information.

3 The company defines "NM" as not meaningful for increases or decreases greater than 200 percent.

4 Under applicable accounting guidance, companies in a loss position are required to use basic weighted-average common shares outstanding in the calculation of diluted loss per share. Therefore, as a result of the loss from continuing operations, the company was required to use basic weighted-average common shares outstanding in the calculation of diluted loss per share as the inclusion of shares for stock options, restricted stock units and stock appreciation rights of 2.2 million and 1.3 million, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 would have been antidilutive to the calculation. If the company had not incurred a loss from continuing operations in these periods, dilutive potential weighted-average common shares outstanding would have been 500.5 million and 498.7 million, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. Since it had net operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2015, the company used 498.7 million diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding in the calculation of diluted net operating income per common share.

5 Percent change excludes the impact of foreign exchange.

6 Company estimate for the third quarter of 2016, due to timing of the filing of statutory statements.

7 Calculated as available assets divided by required assets as defined within PMIERs. As of September 30, 2016 and June 30, 2016, the PMIERs sufficiency ratios were in excess of $400 million and $350 million, respectively, of available assets above the PMIERs requirements. Company estimate for the third quarter of 2016.

8 Holding company cash and liquid assets comprises assets held in Genworth Holdings, Inc. (the issuer of outstanding public debt) which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Genworth Financial, Inc.

9 Comprises cash and cash equivalents of $1,065 million, $834 million and $733 million, respectively, and U.S. government bonds of $100 million, $100 million and $250 million, respectively, as of September 30, 2016, June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015.

10 All percentages are comparing the third quarter of 2016 to the third quarter of 2015 unless otherwise stated.

11 The impact of foreign exchange was calculated using the comparable prior period exchange rates.

12 Represents the incremental assets and investment income related to restricted commercial mortgage loans and other invested assets.

13 Includes cost basis adjustments on structured securities and various other immaterial items.
