Third quarter 2019 net loss included a $124.8 million after-tax charge for the decrease in the estimated fair value of Iké Asistencia. This charge reflected an increase in the liability related to the put/call option, an other than temporary impairment loss on the 40 percent ownership interest in Iké (of which $41.0 million related to cumulative foreign currency losses recorded in other comprehensive income), and a valuation allowance against previously established deferred tax assets.


Third Quarter 2019 Consolidated Results
Net loss was $59.5 million, or $0.96 per share, compared to third quarter 2018 net income of $48.3 million, or $0.76 per diluted share. The loss was driven by charges related to the $124.8 million reduction in fair value of Iké Asistencia (collectively, “Iké”) based on the company’s strategic review process and the intent to now sell the business. In addition, the consolidated net loss included expenses from refinancing debt at a lower interest rate. This was partially offset by $30.9 million of lower reportable catastrophes in Global Housing, and mobile profitable growth in Global Lifestyle.

Net operating income1 increased to $104.8 million, compared to third quarter 2018 net operating income of $67.4 million. The increase was primarily due to earnings expansion in Global Lifestyle and lower reportable catastrophes within Global Housing.

Excluding reportable catastrophes, net operating income2 for third quarter 2019 totaled $141.1 million, compared to $135.1 million in the third quarter 2018. Results increased due to growth in mobile, primarily from increased subscribers, partially offset by a charge of $9.9 million for an accounting adjustment in Global Preneed, as well as lower volumes in lender-placed insurance.

Net operating income per diluted share3 increased to $1.69, compared to third quarter 2018 net operating income of $1.06 per diluted share. The calculation excludes the effect of 2.7 million shares of dilutive securities related to the mandatory convertible preferred stock, which were anti-dilutive for the period. Excluding reportable catastrophes, net operating income increased to $2.28 per diluted share, compared to $2.12 per diluted share in third quarter 2018.

Net earned premiums, fees and other income from the Global Housing, Global Lifestyle and Global Preneed segments totaled $2.31 billion, an increase of 9 percent from $2.11 billion in third quarter 2018. This reflected organic growth in both Connected Living and Global Automotive.

Note: On August 1, 2018, Assurant closed the sale of Global Housing’s mortgage solutions business. Results for this business are included in Global Housing’s revenue and net operating income through July 2018.

Net operating income increased, primarily due to lower reportable catastrophes. Third quarter 2019 included $35.7 million of catastrophe losses primarily from Hurricane Dorian compared to $66.6 million in reportable catastrophes in the prior year period.

Excluding reportable catastrophes, third quarter 2019 net operating income declined, mainly driven by lender-placed insurance including lower placement rates and overall volumes as well as less favorable non-catastrophe loss experience. In addition, the previously disclosed higher catastrophe reinsurance costs contributed to the decline. The decrease was partially offset by higher premium rates in lender-placed and the absence of losses related to the mortgage solutions business in the prior year period.
 
Net earned premiums, fees and other income decreased in third quarter 2019, reflecting the sale of mortgage solutions. Excluding mortgage solutions, revenue increased 1 percent as growth in sharing economy offerings and multifamily housing was partially offset by lower revenues in lender-placed insurance.

Note: Starting June 1, 2018, the results of TWG business operations is reflected within Global Lifestyle segment results.

Net operating income increased 35 percent in third quarter 2019, primarily due to strong organic growth in mobile subscribers in Asia Pacific and North America, and improved operating performance in our European mobile business. Global Automotive organic growth also contributed to earnings. This was partially offset by continued investments to support growth in mobile.

Net earned premiums, fees and other income increased primarily due to contributions from Connected Living, driven by continued mobile subscriber growth from protection programs added over the last two years, and higher trade-in volumes versus the prior year period.

Net operating income decreased primarily due to a charge of $9.9 million for an accounting adjustment related to the historical treatment of deferred acquisition costs. Excluding this adjustment, underlying results increased modestly primarily due to higher investment income from real estate joint venture partnerships and increased assets.

Net earned premiums, fees and other income increased in the third quarter 2019, primarily driven by growth in prefunded funeral policies in the U.S., as well as prior period sales of the Final Need product.

Note: Net (loss) income attributable to common stockholders is the comparable GAAP measure to net operating loss for the Corporate & Other segment.

Net operating loss6 increased primarily as a result of a lower tax rate due to the net loss in the quarter.


Holding Company Liquidity Position

Holding company liquidity was approximately $385 million as of September 30, 2019, $160 million above the company’s current targeted minimum level of $225 million.

Dividends paid to the holding company in the third quarter 2019 from Assurant operating segments totaled $217 million.

In addition to quarterly interest and Corporate expenses, the company had $67 million of cash outflows including $39 million related to debt refinancing at a lower interest rate and $28 million primarily for a contingent payment related to a block of flood policies acquired in 2016.

Share repurchases and common and preferred dividends, totaled $107 million in third quarter 2019. Dividends to shareholders totaled $42 million, including $37 million in common stock dividends and $5 million in preferred stock dividends. Assurant repurchased 0.5 million shares of common stock for $65 million. From October 1 through November 1, 2019, the company repurchased an additional 137,000 shares for approximately $17 million, with $578 million remaining under the current repurchase authorization.


Company Outlook

Based on current views for full-year 2019, the Company expects:

Assurant net operating income per diluted share, excluding catastrophe losses7 to increase 6 percent to 10 percent from 2018, driven mainly by profitable growth in Global Lifestyle as well as share

-4-



repurchases. This growth rate includes the full year impact of the 10.4 million shares issued for the TWG acquisition. Assurant’s consolidated effective tax rate to be between 23 percent to 25 percent.

Double-digit earnings growth to reflect full-year contributions from TWG including approximately $30 million of additional after-tax synergies, strong organic growth in Connected Living, as well as expansion in Global Automotive and multifamily housing, and ongoing expense management efforts.

Earnings growth to be partially offset by the continued declines in Global Financial Services, modest declines in Global Housing, mainly as a result of higher claims in small commercial products, and the accounting adjustment in Global Preneed. Lender-placed net operating income, excluding reportable catastrophe losses and the incremental reinsurance costs, is expected to decline slightly from 2018 mainly due to the reduction in loans tracked from a financially insolvent client, as well as higher non-catastrophe losses.

Corporate and Other full-year net operating loss7 to approximate 2018 levels. Interest expense and preferred dividends are expected to be approximately $83 million and $19 million, respectively, reflecting a full year of financing costs related to the acquisition of TWG.

Business segment dividends from Global Housing, Global Lifestyle and Global Preneed to approximate segment net operating income, including catastrophe losses. This is subject to the growth of the businesses’ and rating agency and regulatory capital requirements.

Capital to be deployed to support business growth, fund other investments and return capital to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends, subject to Board approval and market conditions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Assurant uses the following non-GAAP financial measures to analyze the company’s operating performance for the periods presented in this news release. Because Assurant’s calculation of these measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, investors should be careful when comparing Assurant’s non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies.
(1)
Assurant uses net operating income as an important measure of the Company’s operating performance. Net operating income equals net income attributable to common stockholders, excluding Assurant Health runoff operations, net realized gains (losses) on investments, amortization of deferred gains (including Assurant Employee Benefits), net charges relating to the acquisition of The Warranty Group (TWG), foreign exchange gains (losses) from remeasurement of monetary assets and liabilities, loss on sale of mortgage solutions and other highly variable or unusual items other than reportable catastrophes. The Company believes net operating income provides investors a valuable measure of the performance of the Company’s ongoing business because the excluded items do not represent the ongoing operations of the Company. The comparable GAAP measure is net income attributable to common stockholders.

Net operating income per diluted share equals net operating income (defined above) divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding, excluding any dilutive effect from the assumed conversion of the mandatory convertible preferred stock prior to the TWG acquisition date. The Company believes this metric provides investors a valuable measure of stockholder value because it excludes items that do not represent the ongoing operations of the Company. In addition, it excludes the effect of the mandatory convertible preferred stock, which was used to finance the TWG acquisition, prior to the TWG acquisition date. The comparable GAAP measure is net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share, defined as net income attributable to common stockholders plus any dilutive preferred stock dividends divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

(4) Assurant uses net operating income per diluted share, excluding reportable catastrophes, as another important measure of the Company's stockholder value. The Company believes this metric provides investors a valuable measure of stockholder value because it excludes reportable catastrophes, which can be volatile. The comparable GAAP measure is net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share, defined as net income attributable to common stockholders plus any dilutive preferred stock dividends divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

(5) Segment net operating income of the Global Housing, Global Lifestyle and Global Preneed operating segments is equal to GAAP segment net income.

(6) Assurant uses Corporate and Other net operating loss as an important measure of the corporate segment’s performance. Corporate and Other net operating loss equals Total Corporate and Other segment net loss attributable to common stockholders, excluding Health runoff operations, net TWG acquisition related charges, foreign exchange gains (losses) from remeasurement of monetary assets and liabilities, amortization of deferred gains on disposal of businesses, net realized gains (losses) on investments, interest expense, loss on sale of mortgage solutions and other highly variable or unusual items. The Company believes Corporate and Other net operating loss provides investors a valuable measure of the performance of the Company’s corporate segment because it excludes highly variable items that do not represent the ongoing results of the Company’s corporate segment. The comparable GAAP measure is Total Corporate & Other segment net loss attributable to common stockholders.

(7) The company outlook for net operating income per diluted share, excluding reportable catastrophe losses, and Corporate and Other net operating loss each constitute forward-looking information and the company believes that it cannot reconcile such forward-looking information to the most comparable GAAP measure without unreasonable efforts. Many of the GAAP components cannot be reliably quantified due to the combination of variability and volatility of such components and may, depending on the size of the components, have a significant impact on the reconciliation. The company is able to reasonably quantify a range for amortization of deferred gains based on certain assumptions relating to future reinsured premium on disposed business during the forecast period. Amortization of deferred gains on disposal of businesses is expected to be approximately $16-18 million after-tax. The company is also able to reasonably quantify a range of net TWG acquisition related charges, which is expected to be approximately $25-30 million after-tax. Finally, the company is able to quantify a range of interest expense and preferred stock dividends, as disclosed in the outlook. The interest expense estimate assumes no additional debt is incurred or extinguished in the forecast period and excludes after-tax interest expenses included in debt extinguishment and other related costs. Preferred stock dividends are subject to Board approval.
