Kemper Reports Second Quarter 2022 Operating Results

CHICAGO--()--Kemper Corporation (NYSE: KMPR) reported a net loss of $74.7 million, or $(1.17) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss of $62.6 million, or $(0.97) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021. As Adjusted for Acquisitions1 of American Access Casualty Company (“AAC”) and Infinity Property and Casualty Corporation, the net loss was $71.3 million, or $(1.12) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss of $52.5 million, or $(0.82) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021. In the second quarter of 2022, the net loss included a $32.0 million after-tax loss, or $(0.50) per diluted share, attributable to the change in fair value of equity and convertible securities.

Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Loss1 was $39.7 million, or $(0.62) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2022, compared to Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Loss1 of $99.4 million, or $(1.54) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.

Key themes of the quarter include:

  • Personal Automobile margins impacted by broad inflationary pressures
  • Earned rate is accelerating and Q2 rate taking activities exceeded planned actions
    • Specialty P&C Personal Auto filed an additional 19% rate increase on 30% of the book
    • Preferred P&C Personal Auto filed an additional 7% rate increase on 33% of the book
  • Continued strong momentum in Commercial Vehicle, net written premiums grew 42% year-over-year
  • Life persistency continues to be above pre-pandemic levels, mortality remains elevated but declined from first quarter
  • Higher Net Investment Income driven by a one-time valuation gain on a real estate investment
  • Holding company remains a source of strength for subsidiaries, with approximately $1.2B of liquidity
  • Declared dividend of $0.31 per share

Our second quarter results showed progress and commitment towards restoring profitability,” said Joseph P. Lacher, Jr., President, CEO and Chairman. “This was highlighted by our rate filing actions that exceeded the expectations we outlined in the first quarter. These actions are beginning to earn in and will accelerate throughout the remainder of this year and next. This should offset ongoing environmental pressures and ultimately help us achieve target underwriting profitability.”

Revenues

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2022 decreased $68.7 million, or 5 percent, to $1,433.8 million, compared to the second quarter of 2021, driven by an $81.3 million decrease in the change in fair value of equity and convertible securities, $13.3 million of lower Preferred P&C earned premiums, and an $8.2 million decrease in net realized investment gains, partially offset by $33.4 million of higher Specialty P&C earned premiums. Net investment income increased $4.6 million to $118.5 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021 due primarily to a one-time valuation gain on a real estate investment and higher average investment balance and rate on Company-Owned Life Insurance, partially offset by lower rate on Fixed Income Securities.

The Specialty Property & Casualty Insurance segment reported net operating loss of $38.9 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to net operating loss of $91.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. Results improved due primarily to lower development on prior year claims. The segment’s Underlying Combined Ratio1 was 108.8 percent, compared to 107.3 percent in the second quarter of 2021. This increase is driven primarily by ongoing inflation and supply chain constraints.

The Preferred Property & Casualty Insurance segment reported net operating loss of $16.8 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a net operating loss of $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. Results deteriorated due primarily to a higher Underlying Combined Ratio1 and lower Net Investment Income. The segment’s Underlying Combined Ratio1 was 105.3 percent, compared to 103.1 percent in the second quarter of 2021. This increase is driven primarily by ongoing inflation and supply chain constraints.

The Life & Health Insurance segment reported net operating income of $17.7 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $13.0 million in the second quarter of 2021. This increase is primarily driven by higher returns from Alternative Investments and higher levels of investments and rate on Company-Owned Life Insurance, partially offset by lower levels of investments and yields on equity securities.

Capital

Total Shareholders’ Equity at the end of the quarter was $2,850.0 million, a decrease of $1,157.7 million, or 29 percent, since year-end 2021 primarily driven by a decrease in the fair value of the Company’s fixed income bond portfolio, a net operating loss, and cash dividends to shareholders. Kemper and its direct non-insurance subsidiaries ended the quarter with cash and investments of $275.9 million, and the $600.0 million revolving credit agreement was undrawn.

On May 4, 2022, Kemper announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.31 per share, or $20.6 million. The dividend was paid on May 31, 2022 to its shareholders of record as of May 16, 2022.

Kemper ended the quarter with a book value per share of $44.64, a decrease of 29 percent from $62.93 at the end of 2021. Book Value Per Share Excluding Net Unrealized (Gains) Losses on Fixed Maturities1 was $52.03, compared to $55.04 at the end of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Income (Loss)1 is an after-tax, non-GAAP financial measure and is computed by excluding from Net Income (Loss) the after-tax impact of:

(i) Income (Loss) from Change in Fair Value of Equity and Convertible Securities;
(ii) Net Realized Investment Gains (Losses);
(iii) Impairment Losses;
(iv) Acquisition Related Transaction, Integration and Other Costs;
(v) Debt Extinguishment, Pension and Other Charges; and
(vi) Significant non-recurring or infrequent items that may not be indicative of ongoing operations

Significant non-recurring items are excluded when (a) the nature of the charge or gain is such that it is reasonably unlikely to recur within two years, and (b) there has been no similar charge or gain within the prior two years. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is Net Income (Loss). There were no applicable significant non-recurring items that Kemper excluded from the calculation of Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Income (Loss)1 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 or 2021.

Kemper believes that Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Income (Loss)1 provides investors with a valuable measure of its ongoing performance because it reveals underlying operational performance trends that otherwise might be less apparent if the items were not excluded. Income (Loss) from Change in Fair Value of Equity and Convertible Securities, Net Realized Investment Gains (Losses) and Impairment Losses related to investments included in Kemper’s results may vary significantly between periods and are generally driven by business decisions and external economic developments such as capital market conditions that impact the values of the Kemper’s investments, the timing of which is unrelated to the insurance underwriting process. Acquisition Related Transaction and Integration Costs may vary significantly between periods and are generally driven by the timing of acquisitions and business decisions which are unrelated to the insurance underwriting process. Debt Extinguishment, Pension and Other Charges relate to (i) loss from early extinguishment of debt, which is driven by Kemper’s financing and refinancing decisions and capital needs, as well as external economic developments such as debt market conditions, the timing of which is unrelated to the insurance underwriting process; (ii) settlement of pension plan obligations which are business decisions made by Kemper, the timing of which is unrelated to the underwriting process; and (iii) other charges that are non-standard, not part of the ordinary course of business, and unrelated to the insurance underwriting process. Significant non-recurring items are excluded because, by their nature, they are not indicative of the Kemper’s business or economic trends. The preceding non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for the comparable GAAP financial measures, as they do not fully recognize the overall profitability of the Kemper’s businesses.

A reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Income (Loss) 1 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 is presented below.

Diluted Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Income (Loss) Per Unrestricted Share1 is a non-GAAP financial measure computed by dividing Adjusted Consolidated Net Operating Income (Loss)1 attributed to unrestricted shares by the weighted-average unrestricted shares and equivalent shares outstanding. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is Diluted Net Income (Loss) Per Unrestricted Share.

Book Value Per Share Excluding Net Unrealized (Gains) Losses on Fixed Maturities1 is a calculation that uses a non-GAAP financial measure. It is calculated by dividing shareholders’ equity after excluding the after-tax impact of net unrealized (gains) losses on fixed income securities by total Common Shares Issued and Outstanding. Book Value Per Share is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Kemper uses the trends in book value per share, excluding the after-tax impact of net unrealized (gains) losses on fixed income securities, in conjunction with book value per share to identify and analyze the change in net worth attributable to management efforts between periods. Kemper believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors because it eliminates the effect of items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period and are generally driven by economic developments, primarily capital market conditions, the magnitude and timing of which are not influenced by management. Kemper believes it enhances understanding and comparability of performance by highlighting underlying business activity and profitability drivers.

A reconciliation of the numerator used in the computation of Book Value Per Share Excluding Net Unrealized (Gains) Losses on Fixed Maturities1 and Book Value Per Share at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 is presented below.

Underlying Combined Ratio1 is a non-GAAP financial measure. It is computed by adding the Current Year Non-catastrophe Losses and LAE Ratio with the Insurance Expense Ratio. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is the Combined Ratio, which is computed by adding Total Incurred Losses and LAE Ratio, including the impact of catastrophe losses and loss and LAE reserve development from prior years, with the Insurance Expense Ratio.

Kemper believes Underlying Losses and LAE and the Underlying Combined Ratio are useful to investors and uses these financial measures to reveal the trends in Kemper’s Property & Casualty Insurance segment that may be obscured by catastrophe losses and prior-year reserve development. These catastrophe losses may cause the Kemper’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 incurred losses and LAE and the Combined Ratio. Prior-year reserve developments are caused by unexpected loss development on historical reserves. Because reserve development relates to the re-estimation of losses from earlier periods, it has no bearing on the performance of the Kemper’s insurance products in the current period. Kemper believes it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing the Kemper’s underwriting performance.

As Adjusted for Acquisitions1 amounts are non-GAAP financial measures. Subsequent to the applicable acquisitions, the As Adjusted for Acquisitions1 amounts are computed by subtracting the impact of purchase accounting adjustments from the comparable consolidated GAAP financial measure reported by Kemper. Kemper believes computing and presenting results on an adjusted basis are useful to investors and are used by management to provide meaningful and comparable year-over-year comparisons.

A reconciliation of the As Adjusted for Acquisitions1 non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to the comparable GAAP financial measure for the three months ended June 30, 2022 is presented below.
