Chubb Reports Fourth Quarter Net Income per Share of $0.38; Operating Income per Share Is $0.16; Combined Ratio Is 111.2%, Including 29.7 Percentage Point Impact of Catastrophes

PR Newswire Association LLC

WARREN, N.J., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chubb Corporation (NYSE: CB) today reported net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 of $102 million or $0.38 per share, compared to $452 million or $1.60 per share in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Operating income was $44 million or $0.16 per share in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $460 million or $1.63 per share in the corresponding quarter of 2011.  The company defines operating income as net income excluding after-tax realized investment gains and losses. 

Chubb's results for the fourth quarter of 2012 were adversely affected by costs of $882 million before tax ($2.15 per share after-tax) related to Storm Sandy.  This amount includes $829 million of losses net of reinsurance recoverable, as well as reinsurance reinstatement premium costs of $53 million.  During the quarter, the company also had $6 million of favorable development of reserves for catastrophes that occurred before the fourth quarter of 2012, reducing the total impact of catastrophes in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $876 million before tax ($2.13 per share after-tax).  In the fourth quarter of 2011, the impact of catastrophes was $11 million before tax ($0.03 per share after-tax).

Net written premiums for the fourth quarter declined 2% to $2.9 billion in 2012 from $3.0 billion in 2011.  Premiums were down 2% in the U.S. and down 1% outside the U.S. (up 1% in local currencies).  Excluding the effects of foreign currency translation and reinsurance reinstatement premiums related to Storm Sandy, premiums worldwide increased 1%.

The fourth quarter combined loss and expense ratio was 111.2% in 2012 and 89.9% in 2011. The impact of catastrophes on the combined ratio was 29.7 percentage points in the fourth quarter of 2012.  The impact of catastrophes in the fourth quarter of 2011 was 0.4 points.  Excluding the impact of catastrophes, the fourth quarter combined ratio was 81.5% in 2012 and 89.5% in 2011.

The expense ratio for the fourth quarter was 30.9% in 2012 and 30.6% in 2011.

Property and casualty investment income after taxes for the fourth quarter declined 6% to $296 million in 2012 from $316 million in 2011.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 included net realized investment gains of $90 million before tax ($0.22 per share after-tax). Net income for the fourth quarter of 2011 reflected net realized investment losses of $12 million before tax ($0.03 per share after-tax).

During the fourth quarter of 2012, Chubb repurchased 369,900 shares of its common stock at a total cost of $28 million, or an average cost of $76.54 per share. 

Average diluted shares outstanding for the fourth quarter were 266.8 million in 2012 and 282.2 million in 2011.

Book value per share was $60.45 at December 31, 2012 compared to $60.99 at the end of the third quarter and $56.15 at December 31, 2011.

"Storm Sandy took an enormous toll on millions of people in the Northeast region of the United States, including many of our customers," said John D. Finnegan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Chubb's claim organization and all of our employees responded with speed, empathy and fairness during and after this devastating event.  Helping people recover from catastrophes is a key part of our business, and I am very proud of our employees for their role in helping our customers rebuild their lives and restore their homes and businesses," he said.

"Although Storm Sandy had a severe impact on Chubb's fourth quarter results," said Mr. Finnegan, "the very strong underlying performance of our business units, reflected in our excellent 81.5% combined ratio excluding catastrophes, enabled us to generate an operating profit in the quarter.  For the full year 2012, we are very pleased that we achieved $1.4 billion in operating income after-tax despite a catastrophe impact of over $1.1 billion before tax."

Definitions of Key Terms

Operating Income
Operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure, is net income excluding after-tax realized investment gains and losses.  Management uses operating income, among other measures, to evaluate its performance because the realization of investment gains and losses in any given period is largely discretionary as to timing and can fluctuate significantly, which could distort the analysis of trends.

Underwriting Income (Loss)
Management evaluates underwriting results separately from investment results.  The underwriting operations consist of four separate business units: personal insurance, commercial insurance, specialty insurance and reinsurance assumed.  Performance of the business units is measured based on statutory underwriting results.  Statutory accounting principles applicable to property and casualty insurance companies differ in certain respects from generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Under statutory accounting principles, policy acquisition and other underwriting expenses are recognized immediately, not at the time premiums are earned.  Statutory underwriting income (loss) is arrived at by reducing premiums earned by losses and loss expenses incurred and statutory underwriting expenses incurred.

Management uses underwriting results determined in accordance with GAAP, among other measures, to assess the overall performance of the underwriting operations.  To convert statutory underwriting results to a GAAP basis, certain policy acquisition expenses are deferred and amortized over the period in which the related premiums are earned.  Underwriting income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP is defined as premiums earned less losses and loss expenses incurred and GAAP underwriting expenses incurred.

Property and Casualty Investment Income After Income Tax
Management uses property and casualty investment income after income tax, a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate its investment results because it reflects the impact of any change in the proportion of tax exempt investment income to total investment income and is therefore more meaningful for analysis purposes than investment income before income tax.

Book Value per Common Share with Available-for-Sale Fixed Maturities at Amortized Cost: 
Book value per common share represents the portion of consolidated shareholders' equity attributable to one share of common stock outstanding as of the balance sheet date.  Consolidated shareholders' equity includes, as part of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), the after-tax appreciation or depreciation, including unrealized other-than-temporary impairment losses, of the Corporation's available-for-sale fixed maturities, which are carried at fair value.  The appreciation or depreciation of available-for-sale fixed maturities is subject to fluctuation due to changes in interest rates and therefore could distort the analysis of trends.  Management believes that book value per common share with available-for-sale fixed maturities at amortized cost, a non-GAAP financial measure, is an important measure of the underlying equity attributable to one share of common stock.

Combined Loss and Expense Ratio or Combined Ratio:  
The combined loss and expense ratio, expressed as a percentage, is the key measure of underwriting profitability.  Management uses the combined loss and expense ratio calculated in accordance with statutory accounting principles applicable to property and casualty insurance companies to evaluate the performance of the underwriting operations.  It is the sum of the ratio of losses and loss expenses to premiums earned (loss ratio) plus the ratio of statutory underwriting expenses to premiums written (expense ratio) after reducing both premium amounts by dividends to policyholders.

Net Written Premiums Growth (Decrease) Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency Translation,Net Written Premiums Growth (Decrease) Excluding the Impact of Reinsurance Reinstatement Premiums, Net Written Premiums Growth (Decrease) Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency Translation and Reinsurance Reinstatement Premiums:
Management uses net written premiums growth (decrease) excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, net written premiums growth (decrease) excluding the impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums, and net written premiums growth (decrease) excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and reinsurance reinstatement premiums, non-GAAP financial measures, to evaluate the trends in net written premiums, exclusive of the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the currencies in which international business is transactedand/or the effect of reinsurance reinstatement premiums.  The impact of foreign currency translation is excluded as exchange rates may fluctuate significantly and the effect of fluctuations could distort the analysis of trends.  When excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, management uses the same exchange rate to translate each foreign currency denominated net written premium amount in both periods.  The impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums related to a major catastrophe event such as Storm Sandy are excluded as these reinsurance reinstatement premiums are infrequent and could distort the analysis of trends.  When excluding the impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums, net written premiums are increased by the amount of reinsurance reinstatement premiums recognized in the period.
