NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2015 —

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, 2014.

“We are disappointed in weaker than expected fourth quarter results. Additional actions are being implemented across Assurant to improve profitability as we align resources to support strategic growth in mobile, mortgage solutions and other targeted areas,” said Assurant’s President and CEO Alan B. Colberg. “Throughout Assurant, we remain focused on generating sustained out-performance for our customers, employees and shareholders by executing on our strategy to capitalize on macro trends and consumer insights, increase operational efficiency and maintain disciplined capital management.”

Fourth Quarter 2014 Consolidated Results

 

  Net operating income1 decreased to $63.0 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter 2013 net operating income of $106.0 million, or $1.42 per diluted share. Strong mobile results at Assurant Solutions were offset by increased claims at Assurant Health and the anticipated normalization of lender-placed insurance at Assurant Specialty Property. Fourth quarter also includes an $8.1 million reduction in the amortization of deferred gain on disposal of businesses compared to a $2.6 million benefit in fourth quarter 2013.

 

  Net income decreased to $49.8 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter 2013 net income of $108.8 million, or $1.46 per diluted share due to the factors noted above. Results also were affected by a $19.4 million net loss on the sale of Assurant Specialty Property’s general agency business and associated insurance carrier, American Reliable Insurance Company (ARIC), and a $6.8 million change in tax liabilities. After-tax net realized gains on investments were $11.3 million, compared to after-tax net realized gains of $2.8 million in fourth quarter 2013.

 

  Net earned premiums, fees and other income increased to $2.5 billion, compared to $2.2 billion in fourth quarter 2013 reflecting growth at Assurant Health, Assurant Solutions and Assurant Employee Benefits. Fee income increased in the quarter due to contributions from mobile protection programs and Field Asset Services, StreetLinks and eMortgage Logic acquisitions, which now comprise Assurant Specialty Property’s mortgage solutions business.

 

  Net investment income decreased slightly to $158.9 million, compared to $161.2 million in fourth quarter 2013 due to lower investment yields.
