Highlights for the quarter included:

·

Underwriting income(1) of $7.8 million, resulting in a combined ratio(1) of 96.1.

·

8% increase in gross premiums written and 15% increase in investment income.

·

Favorable development in prior years’ loss reserves resulting in a $9.7 million net increase in underwriting income.

·

Losses from Hurricane Florence resulting in a $6.4 million net decrease to underwriting income.

·

Book value per share of $19.60, an increase of 5% from year-end 2017, inclusive of dividends.

 

“In the third quarter, our business continued to exhibit strong momentum,” said RLI Corp. Chairman & CEO Jonathan E. Michael. “Premium was up across much of our product portfolio, while underwriting results were modestly impacted by Hurricane Florence. Investment income growth supported our underwriting results and contributed to our $0.46 of operating income per share in the quarter. We have expanded our presence in new niches and markets that value our underwriting expertise, continue to successfully grow our more established products and remain consistently focused on our trademark underwriting discipline.”

 

Underwriting Income

RLI achieved $7.8 million of underwriting income in the third quarter of 2018 on a 96.1 combined ratio, compared to $14.9 million of underwriting loss on a 108.2 combined ratio in the same quarter for 2017. Results for both years include favorable development in prior years’ loss reserves which totaled $9.7 million and $14.9 million for 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Other Income

RLI’s net investment income for the quarter increased 15.0% to $16.3 million, compared to the same period in 2017. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018, investment income was $45.1 million versus $40.4 million for the same period in 2017. The investment portfolio’s total return was 1.5% for the quarter and 0.7% through the nine-month period. 

 

Comprehensive earnings were $31.7 million for the quarter ($0.70 per share) compared to $10.2 million ($0.23 per share) for the same quarter in 2017. In addition to net earnings, comprehensive earnings included after-tax unrealized gains/losses from the fixed income portfolio in 2018 and after-tax unrealized gains/losses from the fixed income and equity portfolios in 2017. See Recently Adopted Accounting Standard and Tax Reform discussion below.

 

Equity in earnings of unconsolidated investees was $3.6 million for the quarter compared to $3.7 million from the same period last year. These results are related to Maui Jim, Inc. ($2.6 million), a producer of premium sunglasses, and Prime Holdings Insurance Services, Inc. ($1.0 million), a specialty insurance company. For the third quarter of 2017, equity in earnings of unconsolidated investees from Maui Jim and Prime was $3.1 million and $0.6 million, respectively. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018, equity in earnings of unconsolidated investees was $15.9 million versus $15.4 million in 2017.

 

Dividends Paid in the Third Quarter of 2018

On September 20, 2018, the company paid an ordinary dividend of $0.22 per share, the same amount as the prior quarter. RLI’s cumulative dividends total more than $616 million paid over the last five years.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standard and Tax Reform

As disclosed in RLI’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, accounting guidance for financial instruments changed in 2018 under ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. We adopted this accounting standard update, effective January 1, 2018, using a cumulative-effect adjustment. This adjustment moved the historical unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, on the equity portfolio from accumulated other comprehensive earnings to retained earnings, but had no impact on overall shareholders’ equity. In addition, for 2018 and forward, the change in fair value for equity securities is required to be recognized through net earnings rather than through other comprehensive income. As defined below, we exclude these unrealized gains and losses in arriving at operating earnings and earnings per share from operations. For the third quarter of 2018, $4.8 million of unrealized gains, gross of tax, were recognized within pre-tax earnings and the income tax expense was increased by $1.0 million. The impact to our income statement will vary depending upon the level of volatility in the performance of the securities held in our equity portfolio and the overall market.

 

The change in the federal corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% commencing January 1, 2018, as enacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), contributed to a lower effective tax rate for 2018 as compared to 2017.

 

Non-GAAP and Performance Measures

Management has included certain non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) financial measures in presenting the Company’s results. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures better explain the Company’s results of operations and allow for a more complete understanding of the underlying trends in the Company’s business. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for those determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). In addition, our definitions of these items may not be comparable to the definitions used by other companies.

 

Operating earnings and earnings per share (EPS) from operations consist of our GAAP net earnings adjusted by the net realized gains/(losses), net unrealized gains/(losses) on equity securities for 2018 only and taxes related thereto. The adjustment for net unrealized gains/(losses) on equity securities is only applicable for 2018 due to the adoption of the above mentioned accounting standard update. Net earnings and net earnings per share are the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to operating earnings and EPS from operations. A reconciliation of the operating earnings and EPS from operations to the comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the 2018 financial highlights below.

Underwriting income or profit represents the pretax profitability of our insurance operations and is derived by subtracting loss and settlement expenses, policy acquisition costs and insurance operating expenses from net premium earned, which are all GAAP financial measures. The combined ratio, which is derived from components of underwriting income, is a performance measure commonly used by property and casualty insurance companies and is calculated as the sum of loss and settlement expenses, policy acquisition costs and insurance operating expenses, divided by net premiums earned, which are all GAAP measures.

 

Other News
