NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2013 —

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, 2012.

“In 2012 we accelerated growth in our targeted specialty businesses and prudently managed capital for our shareholders,” said Robert B. Pollock, president and CEO of Assurant. “Superstorm Sandy significantly affected our results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012 as we helped our customers recover from the devastation. With 2013 underway, we remain focused on profitable growth and achieving steady improvements across our businesses as we continue to provide our customers with superior service.”

Fourth Quarter 2012 Consolidated Results

 

 

Net operating income1 decreased to $5.4 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $151.2 million, or $1.61 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011. Results were adversely affected by $135.0 million of reportable catastrophe losses from Superstorm Sandy at Assurant Specialty Property and $28.1 million related to an intangible asset impairment and a workforce restructuring charge at Assurant Solutions. Absent these items, net operating income would have increased primarily due to improved results at Assurant Specialty Property.

 

 

Net income decreased to $25.0 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter 2011 net income of $159.2 million, or $1.70 per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2012 net income reflected higher reportable catastrophe losses compared to fourth quarter 2011. Net realized gains were $19.6 million in fourth quarter 2012, compared to $8.0 million in fourth quarter 2011.

 

 

Net earned premiums, fees and other income were $2.0 billion, up 2 percent compared to fourth quarter 2011, primarily due to continued growth at Assurant Specialty Property.

 

 

Net investment income was flat at $172.1 million, compared to $171.6 million in fourth quarter 2011. Results in the fourth quarter 2012 benefited from $2.3 million of increased investment income from real estate joint venture partnerships, offset by lower investment yields.
