NEW YORK, Feb. 1, 2012 —

Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), a premier provider of specialty insurance and insurance-related products and services, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended Dec. 31, 2011.

“During 2011, our specialty strategy delivered on our long-term commitments that continue to build value for our shareholders,” said Robert B. Pollock, president and CEO of Assurant. “We broadened our product portfolio and improved our operations with an emphasis on consumers’ needs. We will build further on these efforts in 2012.”

Fourth Quarter 2011 Consolidated Results

 

 

Net operating income1 increased 33 percent to $154.3 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter 2010 net operating income of $115.8 million, or $1.08 per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2011 and fourth quarter 2010 were adversely affected by $2.5 million and $44.5 million after-tax of disclosed items, respectively. Absent these items, net operating income decreased due to declines at Assurant Solutions and Assurant Employee Benefits. Improvements at Assurant Specialty Property and Assurant Health partially offset the declines.

 

 

Net income increased to $162.3 million, or $1.73 per diluted share, compared to a fourth quarter 2010 net loss of $184.4 million, or $(1.74) per diluted share. After-tax net realized gains were $8.0 million in fourth quarter 2011, compared to $12.2 million in fourth quarter 2010. Fourth quarter 2010 included a $306.4 million goodwill impairment charge and a $6.0 million increase in the tax valuation allowance.

 

 

Net earned premiums, fees and other income were $1.9 billion, flat compared to fourth quarter 2010. Increases in premiums at Assurant Solutions and Assurant Specialty Property were offset by declines at Assurant Health and Assurant Employee Benefits.
