DES MOINES, Iowa--()--Principal Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: PFG) today announced results for second quarter 2015.

  • Operating earnings increased to $323.9 million for second quarter 2015, compared to $323.1 million for second quarter 2014. After adjusting for normalizing items and foreign exchange rates, operating earnings increased 10 percent over second quarter 2014. Operating earnings per diluted share (EPS) increased 1 percent to $1.09 for second quarter 2015, compared to $1.08 for second quarter 2014.
  • Net income available to common stockholders for second quarter 2015 decreased to $241.1 million, or 81 cents per diluted share, compared to $306.3 million, or $1.03 per diluted share for second quarter 2014.
  • Operating revenues increased 34 percent in second quarter 2015 to $3,406.8 million from higher sales and fee income, compared to $2,542.6 million for second quarter 2014.
    • Fee income3 increased 6 percent to $908.5 million for the second quarter 2015, compared to $855.3 million for second quarter 2014.
  • Quarterly dividend of 38 cents per share of common stock for third quarter 2015 was authorized by the company’s Board of Directors. The dividend will be payable on Sept. 25, 2015, to shareholders of record as of Sept. 4, 2015.

“The strong financial performance we delivered in the second quarter further demonstrates the strength of our diversified business model and the underlying fundamentals of our business. We achieved these strong results despite continued macroeconomic volatility, including ongoing pressure from foreign exchange rates,” says Larry D. Zimpleman, chairman and chief executive officer. “Outstanding investment performance, competitive outcomes-based solutions and strong distribution partnerships worldwide drove total company year-to-date net cash flows up 71 percent to $17.6 billion, leading to record assets under management of $540 billion at quarter end.”

Added Terry Lillis, executive vice president and chief financial officer, ”We continue to grow the percentage of earnings that come from our less capital-intensive, fee-based businesses, enabling us to generate increased free cash flow that we can deploy through a variety of ways to increase value for shareholders. So far in 2015, we’ve announced plans to deploy more than $800 million of capital. In addition to the common stock dividends we paid in the first and second quarters, the current low interest rate environment provided us the opportunity to issue debt and redeem our preferred stock. Looking ahead to the second half of the year, we will pay a 38 cent per share common stock dividend; we expect to close on our acquisition of AXA’s Hong Kong pension business on Sept. 1; and we’ll continue repurchasing shares.”

      • $18.4 million of losses in Other predominantly due to the recognition of unamortized corporate real estate expense.

Forward looking and cautionary statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements as to operating earnings, net income available to common stockholders, net cash flows, realized and unrealized gains and losses, capital and liquidity positions, sales and earnings trends, and management's beliefs, expectations, goals and opinions. The company does not undertake to update these statements, which are based on a number of assumptions concerning future conditions that may ultimately prove to be inaccurate. Future events and their effects on the company may not be those anticipated, and actual results may differ materially from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements. The risks, uncertainties and factors that could cause or contribute to such material differences are discussed in the company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014, and in the company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, filed by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as updated or supplemented from time to time in subsequent filings. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation: adverse capital and credit market conditions may significantly affect the company’s ability to meet liquidity needs, access to capital and cost of capital; conditions in the global capital markets and the economy generally; continued volatility or declines in the equity, bond or real estate markets; changes in interest rates or credit spreads; the company’s investment portfolio is subject to several risks that may diminish the value of its invested assets and the investment returns credited to customers; the company’s valuation of securities may include methodologies, estimations and assumptions that are subject to differing interpretations; the determination of the amount of allowances and impairments taken on the company’s investments requires estimations and assumptions that are subject to differing interpretations; gross unrealized losses may be realized or result in future impairments; competition from companies that may have greater financial resources, broader arrays of products, higher ratings and stronger financial performance; a downgrade in the company’s financial strength or credit ratings; inability to attract and retain sales representatives and develop new distribution sources; international business risks; the company’s actual experience could differ significantly from its pricing and reserving assumptions; the company’s ability to pay stockholder dividends and meet its obligations may be constrained by the limitations on dividends or distributions Iowa insurance laws impose on Principal Life; the pattern of amortizing the company’s DAC and other actuarial balances on its universal life-type insurance contracts, participating life insurance policies and certain investment contracts may change; the company may need to fund deficiencies in its “Closed Block” assets that support participating ordinary life insurance policies that had a dividend scale in force at the time of Principal Life’s 1998 conversion into a stock life insurance company; the company’s reinsurers could default on their obligations or increase their rates; risks arising from acquisitions of businesses; changes in laws, regulations or accounting standards; a computer system failure or security breach could disrupt the company’s business and damage its reputation; results of litigation and regulatory investigations; from time to time the company may become subject to tax audits, tax litigation or similar proceedings, and as a result it may owe additional taxes, interest and penalties in amounts that may be material; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; and applicable laws and the company’s certificate of incorporation and by-laws may discourage takeovers and business combinations that some stockholders might consider in their best interests.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The company uses a number of non-GAAP financial measures that management believes are useful to investors because they illustrate the performance of normal, ongoing operations, which is important in understanding and evaluating the company’s financial condition and results of operations. They are not, however, a substitute for U.S. GAAP financial measures. Therefore, the company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure at the end of the release. The company adjusts U.S. GAAP measures for items not directly related to ongoing operations. However, it is possible these adjusting items have occurred in the past and could recur in future reporting periods. Management also uses non-GAAP measures for goal setting, as a basis for determining employee and senior management awards and compensation, and evaluating performance on a basis comparable to that used by investors and securities analysts.

*Operating earnings versus U.S. GAAP (GAAP) net income available to common stockholders
Management uses operating earnings, which excludes the effect of net realized capital gains and losses, as adjusted, and other after-tax adjustments, for goal setting, as a basis for determining employee compensation, and evaluating performance on a basis comparable to that used by investors and securities analysts. Segment operating earnings are determined by adjusting U.S. GAAP net income available to common stockholders for net realized capital gains and losses, as adjusted, and other after-tax adjustments the company believes are not indicative of overall operating trends. Note: it is possible these adjusting items have occurred in the past and could recur in future reporting periods. While these items may be significant components in understanding and assessing our consolidated financial performance, management believes the presentation of segment operating earnings enhances the understanding of results of operations by highlighting earnings attributable to the normal, ongoing operations of the company’s businesses.
