Triad Guaranty Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End Results

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., February 17, 2012 -- Triad Guaranty Inc. (OTCBB: TGIC) today reported a net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 of $60.9 million compared to a net loss of $37.5 million for the third quarter of 2011 and net income of $26.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2010.  The 2011 fourth quarter diluted loss per share was $3.99 compared to a diluted loss per share of $2.46 for the 2011 third quarter and diluted income per share of $1.76 for the fourth quarter of 2010.

The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2011 was $107.8 million compared to net income of $132.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2010.  The diluted loss per share was $7.07 for the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to diluted income per share of $8.72 for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Ken Jones, President and CEO, said, “Stubbornly high unemployment, tight credit and depressed home prices have prevented any meaningful recovery in the housing market, which continues to negatively impact our financial results.  During the fourth quarter of 2011, we increased the frequency factors utilized in our reserve calculation, which added approximately $30 million to the loss for the quarter.  As necessary, we make refinements to our reserve estimate each quarter to reflect actual experience.  Risk in default continued to decline during the fourth quarter, but at a slower rate than we experienced during the previous five quarters.  Settled claims declined 14% from the third quarter while cures and newly reported defaults remained essentially flat during the 2011 fourth quarter.  Persistency, the key driver of our earned premiums, remained at elevated levels compared to historical norms as many borrowers are finding it very difficult to sell their homes.”

Mr. Jones continued, “As a company in run-off, our primary focus remains on the efficient and effective servicing of our insured portfolio, particularly with respect to loss management, in order to maximize our claims-paying ability.  Our deficit in assets remains substantial and was $703.6 million at December 31, 2011.  We believe that, absent significant positive changes in the economy and the residential real estate market, our existing assets and future premiums likely will not be sufficient to meet our current and future policyholder obligations.”

We have updated the quarterly statistical and supplemental information for the 2011 fourth quarter results on our web site at www.triadguaranty.com.  The supplemental information can be found under “Investors” and then under “Webcasts and Presentations” by the title “Supplemental Information – Fourth Quarter 2011”.
