(1) In order to reconcile the net income to the core income measure, we included the tax impact of all adjustments using the effective rate at the end of each period.
(2) Core income and core income per diluted share, measures that are not based on GAAP, are reconciled above to net income and net income per diluted share, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Additional information regarding non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release can be found in the "Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures" section, below.

"UPC is off to a strong start in 2018," said John Forney, President & CEO of UPC Insurance. "Despite a lot of catastrophe activity in our geographic footprint, we grew premium-in-force by 3% in the quarter to almost $1.1 billion and produced solid bottom line results. I'm proud of the work our team is doing to drive sustainable growth and profitability."

Return on Equity and Core Return on Equity

Return on equity is a ratio the Company calculates by dividing annualized net income for the trailing three months by the average stockholders' equity for the trailing twelve months. Core return on equity (see calculation below) is a ratio calculated using non-GAAP measures. It is calculated by dividing the annualized core income for the trailing three months by the average stockholders’ equity for the trailing twelve months. Core income is an after-tax non-GAAP measure that is calculated by excluding from net income the effect of non-cash amortization of intangible assets, unrealized gains or losses on the Company's equity security investments and realized gains or losses on the Company's investment portfolio. In the opinion of the Company’s management, core income, core income per share and core return on equity are meaningful indicators to investors of the Company's underwriting and operating results, since the excluded items are not necessarily indicative of operating trends. Internally, the Company’s management uses core income, core income per share and core return on equity to evaluate performance against historical results and establish financial targets on a consolidated basis. The table above reconciles core income to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

(1) Loss ratio, net is calculated as losses and loss adjustment expenses (LAE), net of losses ceded to reinsurers, relative to net premiums earned.
(2) Expense ratio, net is calculated as the sum of all operating expenses less interest expense relative to net premiums earned.
(3) Combined ratio is the sum of the loss ratio, net and expense ratio, net.
(4) Underlying combined ratio, a measure that is not based on GAAP, is reconciled above to the combined ratio, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Additional information regarding non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release can be found in the "Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures" section, below.
(5) Included in both the expense ratio and the combined ratio are $9.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 of merger professional fees and amortization expense predominately associated with the AmCo Holding Company (AmCo) merger in the second quarter of 2017. Excluding these additional expenses, the Company would have reported underlying combined ratios of 86.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 89.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

Quarterly Financial Results
 
Net income for the first quarter of 2018 was $8.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.9 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2017. The increase in net income was primarily due to the lower catastrophe and non-catastrophe loss ratios for the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of 2017.

The Company's total gross written premium increased by $110.8 million, or 65.6%, to $279.6 million for the first quarter of 2018 from $168.8 million for the first quarter of 2017, primarily reflecting the Company's merger with AmCo in the second quarter of 2017, as well as organic growth in new and renewal business generated in all regions. The breakdown of the quarter-over-quarter changes in both direct written and assumed premiums by region and gross written premium by line of business are shown in the table below.

(1) "Gulf" is comprised of Hawaii, Louisiana and Texas; "Northeast" is comprised of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island; and "Southeast" is comprised of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
(2) Assumed premium written for 2018 is primarily commercial property business assumed from unaffiliated insurers.


Loss and loss adjustment expense (LAE) increased by $13.9 million, or 22.0%, to $77.2 million for the first quarter of 2018 from $63.3 million for the first quarter of 2017. Loss and LAE expense as a percentage of net earned premiums decreased 11.6 points to 47.5% for the first quarter of 2018, compared to 59.1% for the same period last year. Excluding catastrophe losses and reserve development, the Company's gross underlying loss and LAE ratio for the first quarter of 2018 would have been 25.7%, a decrease of 3.5 points from 29.2% during the first quarter of 2017.

Policy acquisition costs increased by $21.7 million, or 61.2%, to $57.1 million for the first quarter of 2018 from $35.4 million for the first quarter of 2017. The primary driver of the increase in costs was the managing general agent fees related to AmCo commercial premiums. The remaining change was the result of policy acquisition costs varying directly with changes in gross premiums earned and were generally consistent with the Company's growth in premium production and higher average market commission rates outside of Florida.

Operating and underwriting expenses increased by $2.4 million, or 41.7%, to $8.3 million for the first quarter of 2018 from $5.9 million for the first quarter of 2017, primarily due to increased costs related to incurred expenses for software tools, agent incentive costs, underwriting services and assessments.

General and administrative expenses increased by $12.0 million, or 105.8%, to $23.3 million for the first quarter of 2018 from $11.3 million for the first quarter of 2017, primarily due to amortization costs related to the merger with AmCo during the second quarter of 2017 and salary expense related to increased claims personnel.

Reinsurance Costs as a % of Earned Premium

Excluding the Company's flood business, for which it cedes 100% of the risk of loss, reinsurance costs in the first quarter of 2018 were 39.9% of gross premiums earned, compared to 38.6% of gross premiums earned for the first quarter of 2017. The increase in this ratio was driven primarily by the costs related to the inclusion of AmCo's commercial property exposures in our 2017-18 combined catastrophe reinsurance program.

Investment Portfolio Highlights

The Company's cash and investment holdings remained consistent at $1.1 billion at March 31, 2018 compared to $1.1 billion at December 31, 2017. UPC Insurance's cash and investment holdings consist of investments in U.S. Government and agency securities, corporate debt and 100% investment grade money market instruments. Fixed maturities represented approximately 88.2% of total investments at March 31, 2018 compared to 89.3% at December 31, 2017. At both March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the modified duration was 3.9 years.

Book Value Analysis

Book value per share decreased (0.4)% from $12.56 at December 31, 2017 to $12.52 at March 31, 2018, and underlying book value per share increased 3.0% from $12.35 at December 31, 2017 to $12.72 at March 31, 2018. A decrease in the Company's retained earnings drove the decrease in our book value per share. Removing the effect of the decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income, as shown in the table below, also impacted our underlying book value per share.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend payable on May 29, 2018, to stockholders of record on May 22, 2018.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures

We believe that investors' understanding of UPC Insurance's performance is enhanced by our disclosure of the following non-GAAP measures. Our methods for calculating these measures may differ from those used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited.

Combined ratio excluding the effects of current year catastrophe losses, prior year reserve development and ceding commission income earned (underlying combined ratio) is a non-GAAP ratio, which is computed by subtracting the effect of current year catastrophe losses, prior year development, and ceding commission income earned related to the Company's quota share reinsurance agreement from the combined ratio. The Company believes that this ratio is useful to investors and it is used by management to reveal the trends in the Company's business that may be obscured by current year catastrophe losses, losses from lines in run-off, prior year development, and ceding commission income earned. Current year catastrophe losses cause the Company's loss trends to vary significantly between periods as a result of their incidence of occurrence and magnitude, and can have a significant impact on the combined ratio. Prior year development is caused by unexpected loss development on historical reserves. Ceding commission income compensates the Company for expenses it incurs in generating the premium ceded under the Company's quota share reinsurance agreement. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most direct comparable GAAP measure is the combined ratio. The underlying combined ratio should not be considered as a substitute for the combined ratio and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Net Loss and LAE excluding the effects of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development (underlying Loss and LAE) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by subtracting the effect of current year catastrophe losses and prior year reserve development from net loss and LAE. The Company uses underlying loss and LAE figures to analyze the Company's loss trends that may be impacted by current year catastrophe losses and prior year development on the Company's reserves. As discussed previously, these two items can have a significant impact on the Company's loss trends in a given period. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most direct comparable GAAP measure is net loss and LAE. The underlying loss and LAE measure should not be considered a substitute for net loss and LAE and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Operating Expenses excluding the effects of ceding commission income earned, merger expenses, and amortization of intangible assets (underlying expense) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by subtracting ceding income earned related to the Company's quota share reinsurance agreement, merger expenses and amortization of intangibles. Ceding commission income compensates the Company for expenses it incurs in generating the premium ceded under the Company's quota share reinsurance agreement. Merger expenses are directly related to past mergers and are not reflective of current period operating performance. Similarly, amortization expense is related to the amortization of intangible assets acquired through mergers and therefore the expense does not arise through normal operations. The Company believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Company's performance. The most direct comparable GAAP measure is operating expenses. The underlying expense measure should not be considered a substitute for the expense ratio and does not reflect the overall profitability of the Company's business.

Net Income excluding the effects of non-cash amortization of intangible assets, realized gains (losses) and unrealized gains (losses) on equity securities, net of tax (core income) is a non-GAAP measure which is computed by adding amortization, net of tax, to net income and subtracting realized gains (losses) on our investment portfolio, net of tax, and unrealized gains (losses) on our equity securities, net of tax, from net income. Amortization expense is related to the amortization of intangible assets acquired through merger and therefore the expense does not arise through normal operations. Investment portfolio gains (losses) and unrealized equity security gains (losses) vary independent of our operations. We believe it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing our performance. The most direct comparable GAAP measure is net income. The core income measure should not be considered a substitute for net income and does not reflect the overall profitability of our business.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements made in this press release, or on the conference call identified above, and otherwise, that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” that anticipate results based on our estimates, assumptions and plans and are subject to uncertainty. These statements are made subject to the safe-harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and may be identified by their use of words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” "endeavor," "project," “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “would,” “estimate” or “continue” or the negative variations thereof or comparable terminology. We believe these statements are based on reasonable estimates, assumptions and plans. However, if the estimates, assumptions or plans underlying the forward-looking statements prove inaccurate or if other risks or uncertainties arise, actual results could differ materially from those communicated in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the forward-looking statements may be found in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including the “Risk Factors” section in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as required by applicable law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement.
