Third Point Re Reports Third Quarter 2017 Earnings Results
Net income available to Third Point Re common shareholders of $54.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted common share
HAMILTON, Bermuda, November 8, 2017, Third Point Reinsurance Ltd. (“Third Point Re” or the “Company”) (NYSE:TPRE) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2017.
Third Point Re reported net income available to common shareholders of $54.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted common share, for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $72.1 million, or $0.68 per diluted common share, for the three months ended September 30, 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, Third Point Re reported net income available to common shareholders of $233.4 million, or $2.22 per diluted common share, compared to $74.3 million, or $0.70 per diluted common share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
For the three months ended September 30, 2017, diluted book value per share increased by $0.50 per share, or 3.4%, to $15.24 per share as of September 30, 2017, from $14.74 per share as of June 30, 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, diluted book value per share increased by $2.08 per share, or 15.8%, to $15.24 per share from $13.16 per share as of December 31, 2016.
“Our strong performance for 2017 continued through the third quarter with a return on beginning shareholders’ equity of 3.5%, bringing our nine month return to 16.8%,” commented Rob Bredahl, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Our investment manager, Third Point LLC continues to have a great year and has generated an investment return of 14.6% through the first nine months of the year and 17.6% through October 2017. We reported a combined ratio of 111.9% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, which included $5.3 million, or 5.0 percentage points on our combined ratio, related to third quarter catastrophes. The small net loss from these events was within expectations given our limited exposure and reflects our decision to avoid highly volatile forms of reinsurance such as catastrophe excess of loss treaties.”

Segment Highlights
Property and Casualty Reinsurance Segment
Gross premiums written increased by $32.0 million, or 22.4%, to $174.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 from $142.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. Gross premiums written decreased by $59.1 million, or 11.0%, to $477.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 from $536.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
The increase for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the period year period was primarily due to new contracts, partially offset by timing differences. The decrease for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the prior year period was primarily due to contracts that we did not renew as a result of underlying terms and conditions, lower premium adjustments in the current year period and other timing differences partially offset by new premium.
The decrease in net premiums earned in the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016 was primarily due to a lower in-force underwriting portfolio. The increase in net premiums earned for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was primarily due to $85.6 million of new retroactive exposures assumed in reinsurance contracts, which was fully earned when written, partially offset by a lower in-force underwriting portfolio. We did not write any retroactive reinsurance contracts in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.
The net underwriting loss and combined ratio for the three months ended September 30, 2017 included $5.3 million, or 5.0 percentage points, related to third quarter catastrophes. There was an insignificant impact on our net underwriting result from changes in estimates of prior years’ loss reserves, net of the related impact of acquisition costs, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.
The net underwriting loss and combined ratio for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 did not include any impact of catastrophe losses. There was an insignificant impact on our net underwriting result from changes in estimates of prior years’ loss reserves, net of the related impact of acquisition costs, for the three months ended September 30, 2016. The nine months ended September 30, 2016 included increases of $12.5 million in net underwriting loss from changes in estimates of prior years’ reserves, net of related impact of acquisition costs.

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, the investment portfolio generated positive net returns from each investment strategy with equities remaining the strongest performing strategy for the quarter.  Gains generated from long investments in every sector except consumer were partially offset by losses in the short portfolios for most sectors as well as market hedges.  Performance was primarily attributable to long activist or long-term growth investments in the industrials, healthcare and technology, media and telecommunications sectors.  Within credit, long sovereign investments in Latin America and U.S.-based structured credit





positions drove gains.  Exposure in the other strategy remains modest and positive returns from long risk arbitrage, currency, private and macroeconomic portfolios were partially offset by losses in the corresponding short portfolios. 
For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the net investment results were primarily attributable to our equity portfolio. Within equities, the investment account saw positive net returns from every sector led by healthcare, industrials, consumer and technology, media and telecommunications. The long portfolio added meaningful returns while the short portfolio generated alpha amidst a strong broader market backdrop. Within credit, gains in each sub-strategy on the long side were partially offset by negative performance by the short performing credit book. Positive returns from risk arbitrage, private and currency investments negated modest detraction from macroeconomic hedges in the other strategy.
Board of Director Changes
In a separate press release, Third Point Re also today announced that John Berger, Chairman, will be stepping down from the Board effective December 22, 2017. Steven Fass, a current Board Director, will succeed Mr. Berger as interim Chairman. Rob Bredahl, President and Chief Executive Officer, will replace Mr. Berger on the Board as of December 22, 2017. The Board would like to thank Mr. Berger for his work as Chairman and he leaves with their best wishes. John was instrumental in the formation of Third Point Re and the Board sincerely appreciates all of Mr. Berger’s hard work in getting Third Point Re to its current position.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the Company identified that a portion of its noncontrolling interest was redeemable.  This portion of the noncontrolling interests had previously been presented in noncontrolling interests in related party within shareholders’ equity when it should have been presented in the mezzanine section of the consolidated balance sheet as redeemable noncontrolling interests in related party.  As of December 31, 2016, $31.2 million of the noncontrolling interest in related party should have been presented in the mezzanine section of the consolidated balance sheet as redeemable noncontrolling interests in related party.  Although this impacted total shareholders’ equity, it did not impact shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders or retained earnings.  In addition, this change did not impact the condensed consolidated statements of income, earnings per share or condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.  The Company has evaluated the effect of the incorrect presentation, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and concluded that it did not have a material impact on, nor require amendment of, any previously filed annual or quarterly consolidated financial statements or periodic reports.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Performance Indicators
Book Value per Share and Diluted Book Value per Share
Book value per share and diluted book value per share are non-GAAP financial measures and there are no comparable GAAP measures. Book value per share is calculated by dividing shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders by the number of issued and outstanding shares at period end, net of treasury shares. Diluted book value per share represents book value per share combined with the impact from dilution of all in-the-money share options issued, warrants and unvested restricted shares outstanding as of any period end. For unvested restricted shares with a performance condition, we include the unvested restricted shares for which we consider vesting to be probable. Change in book value per share is calculated by taking the change in book value per share divided by the beginning of period book value per share. Change in diluted book value per share is calculated by taking the change in diluted book value per share divided by the beginning of period diluted book value per share. We believe that long-term growth in diluted book value per share is the most important measure of our financial performance because it allows our management and investors to track over time the value created by the retention of earnings. In addition, we believe this metric is used by investors because it provides a basis for comparison with other companies in our industry that also report a similar measure.
Net Investment Income on Float
Net investment income on float is an important aspect of our property and casualty reinsurance operation. In an insurance or reinsurance operation, float arises because premiums and proceeds from deposit accounted contracts are collected before losses are paid. In some instances, the interval between receipts and payments can extend over many years. During this time interval, insurance and reinsurance companies invest the premiums received and generate investment returns. Float is not a concept defined by U.S. GAAP and therefore, there are no comparable U.S. GAAP measures. Float, as a result, is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe that net investment income generated on float is an important consideration in evaluating the overall contribution of our property and casualty reinsurance operation to our consolidated results. It is also explicitly considered as part of the evaluation of management’s performance for purposes of long-term incentive compensation.
Net Investment Return on Investments Managed by Third Point LLC
Net investment return represents the return on our investments managed by Third Point LLC, net of fees. The net investment return on investments managed by Third Point LLC is the percentage change in value of a dollar invested over the reporting period on our investment assets managed by Third Point LLC, net of total noncontrolling interest. The stated return is net of withholding taxes, which are presented as a component of income tax expense in our condensed consolidated statements of income. Net investment return is the key indicator by which we measure the performance of Third Point LLC, our investment manager.
Return on Beginning Shareholders’ Equity Attributable to Third Point Re Common Shareholders
Return on beginning shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders as presented is a non-GAAP financial measure. Return on beginning shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders is calculated by dividing net income available to Third Point Re common shareholders by the beginning shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders. We believe that return on beginning shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders is an important measure because it assists our management and investors in evaluating the Company’s profitability. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we have also adjusted the beginning shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders for the impact of the shares repurchased on a weighted average basis. This adjustment increased the stated returns on beginning shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders.
Invested Asset Leverage
Invested asset leverage is a ratio calculated by dividing our net investments managed by Third Point LLC by shareholders’ equity attributable to Third Point Re common shareholders and is a key metric in assessing the amount of insurance float generated by our reinsurance operation that has been invested by our investment manager, Third Point LLC.  Given the sensitivity of our return on beginning shareholders’ equity to our net investment return on investments managed by Third Point LLC, invested asset leverage is an important metric that management monitors.  It is also an important metric by which we evaluate our capital adequacy for rating agency and regulatory purposes.  Maintaining an appropriate invested asset leverage in order to optimize the return potential of the Company, while maintaining sufficient rating agency and regulatory capital is an important aspect of how we manage the Company.
