Genworth Financial Announces Third Quarter 2014 Earnings Results

11/05/14

RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW) today reported results for the period ended September 30, 2014.

Third Quarter Financial and Operational Developments

  • Completes Long Term Care Insurance (LTC) comprehensive claim reserve review, resulting in a reserve increase of $531 million and an after-tax earnings charge of $345 million 
  • Announces annual goodwill results and records noncash charge of $517 million after-tax
  • Solid capital positions retained across all businesses and significant holding company liquidity
  • Strong loss performance in Canada and Australia

The company reported a net loss[1] of $844 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, compared with net income of $108 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013. The net operating loss[2] for the third quarter of 2014 was $317 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared with net operating income of $139 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013. The net loss and net operating loss in the quarter reflected the completion of the company's review of its LTC claim reserves that resulted in an increase to claim reserves of $531 million pre-tax or $345 million after-tax. The net loss in the quarter also reflected the completion of the company's annual goodwill impairment analysis that resulted in after-tax goodwill impairments of $517 million in its life and long term care insurance businesses.

"While we remain encouraged by our Global Mortgage Insurance Division performance, which continues to show strength, we are very disappointed by our U.S. Life Insurance Division results. We continue to believe our LTC strategy is the best option for Genworth, but the turnaround in this business will be more difficult and prolonged because of the poor performance of the older generation products," said Tom McInerney, President and CEO. "Despite this setback, we remain steadfast in our commitment to transform this business."

During the third quarter of 2014, the company completed its annual goodwill impairment analysis. As a result of the company's focus on transitioning to higher return permanent products, including universal life, indexed universal life and linked benefit products, which are expected to ramp up over time, and reducing its dependence on lower margin, capital intensive term life insurance products resulting in lower projected overall sales, the company recorded an after-tax goodwill impairment of $350 million in the life insurance business, and has a remaining goodwill balance of $145 million in that business. Additionally, as a result of a reduced overall market size, the company's transition to new products, higher expected use of LTC reinsurance on new business as well as higher expected claim costs, the company recorded an after-tax goodwill impairment of $167 million in the long term care insurance business, and has a remaining goodwill balance of $154 million in that business.

Net investment losses, net of taxes and other adjustments, were $10 million in the quarter, compared to $13 million in the prior year. Total investment impairments, net of taxes, were $4 million in the current quarter and $3 million in the prior year.

On May 21, 2014, the company completed the minority initial public offering (IPO) of 33.8 percent of its Australian mortgage insurance (MI) business and as a result, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australian MI business was $23 million in the current quarter and $11 million in the prior quarter. The company's net loss before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business was $821 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014 compared with net income available to Genworth's common stockholders of $108 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013. The company's net operating loss before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business for the third quarter of 2014 was $294 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared with net operating income of $139 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013.

U.S. Life Insurance Division

Key Points

  • U.S. Life Insurance Division net operating loss was $322 million, compared with net operating income of $69 million in the prior quarter and $111 million a year ago. The net operating loss reflects the completion of the company's review of its long term care insurance claim reserves that resulted in an increase to claim reserves of $531 million pre-tax or $345 million after-tax. 
  • Compared to the prior quarter, sales of life insurance and individual LTC products were higher but fixed annuities were lower.
  • The consolidated risk-based capital (RBC) ratio is estimated to be approximately 445 percent[6], down from approximately 490 percent at the end of the second quarter of 2014.
  • As of October 31, 2014, 47 states have approved the initial round of premium rate increases as part of the 2012 in force premium rate action. The company continues to expect to achieve $250 to $300 million of premium increases when fully implemented.
  • In September 2013, the company announced that it began filing for LTC premium rate increases on certain Privileged Choice® and Classic Select® policies sold between 2003 and 2012. As of October 31, 2014, 22 states have approved these rate increases.

Life Insurance
Life insurance net operating income was $13 million, compared with $39 million in the prior quarter and $54 million in the prior year. Mortality performance was $16 million unfavorable compared to the prior quarter and $19 million unfavorable compared to the prior year. Results in the quarter included lower variable investment income, driven mainly by a current quarter impact of $8 million after-tax from prepayment speed assumption updates related to holdings of residential mortgage backed securities. During the quarter, the company performed its annual assumption unlocking of mortality and interest assumptions for its term universal and universal life insurance products, which benefitted earnings in the quarter by $7 million primarily impacting reserves and deferred acquisition costs. Results in the quarter were also negatively impacted by $9 million from charges related to three items, including a reinsurance treaty recapture, an incurred but not reported reserve correction and a deferred premium asset write-off. Prior year results included a net benefit of $17 million from favorable unlocking and other adjustments.

Sales of $28 million increased versus the prior quarter and prior year. The company is transitioning to a broader portfolio of competitive permanent products, with a greater focus on universal life, indexed universal life and linked benefit products. The company has experienced sales growth in these products, along with the industry, and expects sales to continue growing over time.  Linked benefit product deposits were $47 million in the quarter, up from $42 million in the prior quarter and $26 million in the prior year.

During the third quarter of 2014, the company completed its annual goodwill impairment analysis. As a result of the company's focus on transitioning to higher return permanent products, including universal life, indexed universal life and linked benefit products, which are expected to ramp up over time, and reducing its dependence on lower margin, capital intensive term life insurance products resulting in lower projected overall sales, the company recorded an after-tax goodwill impairment of $350 million in the life insurance business, and has a remaining goodwill balance of $145 million in that business.

Long Term Care Insurance
Long term care insurance net operating loss was $361 million, compared with net operating income of $6 million in the prior quarter and $41 million in the prior year. During the quarter, the company completed a comprehensive review of its long term care insurance claim reserves conducted over the past few months. The company made changes to its assumptions and methodologies primarily impacting claim terminations, most significantly in later duration claims, and benefit utilization reflecting that claimants are staying on claim longer and utilizing more of their available benefits in aggregate than had previously been assumed in the company's reserve calculations. As a result of these changes, claim reserves were increased $531 million pre-tax or $345 million after-tax. Results in the quarter also include an unfavorable $35 million after-tax correction of a claim reserve calculation of benefit utilization for policies with a benefit inflation option.

In the fourth quarter of 2014 the company is conducting its annual review of active life margins and as part of this review it will review the associated assumptions and methodologies. Based on the work done in connection with the recently completed claim reserve review that resulted in changes to claim terminations and benefit utilization assumptions and associated methodologies, the company expects these changes will materially reduce its active life margins. However, the company is developing related management actions, that it expects will offset much, or possibly most, of the reduction on margins from the claim reserve review. Separately, the company tests its acquired LTC blocks for recoverability as part of its loss recognition testing margin review. Given the age of those blocks, the results of this review are less likely to benefit from management actions, and therefore are more likely to be negatively impacted by the updated claim reserve assumptions and methodologies. The company may also make changes to its other active life margin assumptions and methodologies, but currently cannot predict with more specificity the nature, extent or margin impact of any of the assumption and methodology changes it may make in completing its annual margin review, and whether or not the resulting impact will be material.  

Results also included lower benefits from premium increases and reduced benefit options of $3 million versus the prior quarter and a favorable benefit of $21 million versus the prior year related to the premium increases approved and implemented to date.

Benefits and other changes in policy reserves increased $376 million after-tax versus the prior quarter and increased $425 million after-tax versus the prior year. Benefits and other changes in policy reserves decreased $9 million after-tax versus the prior quarter primarily from lower incurred losses resulting from higher closed pending claims and increased $54 million after-tax versus the prior year primarily from higher severity and frequency on new claims and higher paid benefits on existing claims, in each case when excluding the after-tax impacts of the increase to claim reserves from the completion of the review of long term care insurance claim reserves, the correction of a calculation of benefit utilization for policies with a benefit inflation option and the reduced benefits options from premium rate increases approved and implemented to date.

Individual LTC sales of $28 million were higher than the prior quarter and lower than the prior year. In July 2014, the company launched its Privileged Choice Flex 3.0 product in 42 states. Sales are expected to trend down in the near term due to the introduction of this higher priced product. The company is evaluating market trends and sales and investing in the development of products that will help expand the market and meet middle income consumer needs. In addition to product development, the company is investing in key distribution and marketing areas to grow profitable new sales over time and better serve the company's distribution partners and their clients. 

During the third quarter of 2014, the company completed its annual goodwill impairment analysis. As a result of a smaller overall market size, the company's transition to new products, higher expected use of LTC reinsurance on new business as well as higher expected claim costs, the company recorded an after-tax goodwill impairment of $167 million in the long term care insurance business, and has a remaining goodwill balance of $154 million in that business.

Fixed Annuities
Fixed annuities net operating income was $26 million, compared with $24 million in the prior quarter and $16 million in the prior year. Results in the quarter include favorable investment income from bond calls and limited partnerships versus the prior year. Results also reflect spread income from a higher level of customer account values versus the prior year. Sales in the quarter totaled $371 million, down sequentially and versus the prior year given the lower interest rate environment.

U.S. Life Division Capital
The consolidated RBC ratio is estimated to be approximately 445 percent[6], down from approximately 490 percent at the end of the second quarter of 2014, and the consolidated U.S. life insurance companies unassigned surplus is estimated to be $290 million[6], down from approximately $560 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014. The review of LTC insurance claim reserves adversely impacted statutory capital in total by approximately $545 million after-tax, with approximately $260 million after-tax impacting the U.S. life insurance companies.

Global Mortgage Insurance Division

Global Mortgage Insurance Division had net operating income of $85 million, compared with $136 million in the prior quarter and $87 million a year ago.

International Mortgage Insurance Segment

Key Points

  • Reported International Mortgage Insurance segment net operating income was $87 million, compared with $97 million in the prior quarter and $90 million a year ago. Results in the quarter reflected a $12 million decrease in net operating income versus the prior quarter and a $23 million decrease versus the prior year as a result of the minority IPO of 33.8 percent of the Australia MI business which was completed on May 21, 2014. Results were impacted by favorable taxes of $10 million versus the prior year. The loss ratio in both Canada and Australia was 21 percent for the quarter.
  • In Canada, flow new insurance written (NIW) was up 34 percent[7] sequentially and up 18 percent[7] year over year. In addition, in the current quarter, the company completed $5.6 billion of bulk transactions, consisting of low loan-to-value prime loans.
  • In Australia, flow NIW was up one percent[7] sequentially and flat[7] year over year. In addition, in the current quarter, the company completed a $1.0 billion bulk transaction, consisting of low loan-to-value prime loans.
  • The Canadian and Australian businesses continue to maintain sound capital positions.

Canada Mortgage Insurance

Canada reported net operating income of $46 million versus $47 million in the prior quarter and $41 million in the prior year. The loss ratio in the quarter was 21 percent, up nine points from the prior quarter from higher new delinquencies, net of cures, and down one point from the prior year reflecting the strong credit quality of recent books and the overall stable economic environment. Results included more favorable taxes of $7 million versus the prior year and lower expenses versus the prior quarter and prior year. Flow NIW was up 34 percent[7] sequentially primarily from a seasonally larger originations market and up 18 percent[7] year over year from a larger originations market. In addition, the company completed several bulk transactions in the quarter of approximately $5.6 billion in total, consisting of low loan-to-value prime loans, reflecting its selective participation in this market. At quarter end, the Canada mortgage insurance business had a minimum capital test (MCT) ratio of 224 percent[6], in excess of the targeted level.

Australia Mortgage Insurance

Australia reported net operating income of $48 million versus $57 million in the prior quarter and $61 million in the prior year. Results in the quarter reflected a $12 million decrease in net operating income versus the prior quarter and a $23 million decrease versus the prior year as a result of the minority IPO of 33.8 percent of the Australia MI business, which was completed on May 21, 2014. The loss ratio in the quarter was 21 percent, down two points sequentially from seasonally lower new delinquencies and strong cure rates as home prices increased during the quarter and down 10 points from the prior year primarily from lower paid claims and the overall stable economic environment. Flow NIW was up one percent[7] sequentially and flat[7] year over year. In addition, the company completed a bulk transaction in the quarter, consisting of approximately $1.0 billion low loan-to-value prime loans, reflecting its selective participation in this market. At quarter end, the Australia mortgage insurance business had a prescribed capital amount (PCA) ratio of 156 percent[6], in excess of the targeted range.

Other Countries Mortgage Insurance

Other Countries had a net operating loss of $7 million, compared to net operating losses of $7 million in the prior quarter and $12 million in the prior year.

U.S. Mortgage Insurance Segment

Key Points

  • U.S. MI net operating loss was $2 million, compared with net operating income of $39 million in the prior quarter and a net operating loss of $3 million in the prior year. Results in the current quarter included $34 million of after-tax accruals recorded principally in connection with the settlement agreement with Bank of America as well as discussions with another servicer in an effort to resolve pending disputes over loss mitigation activities. The loss ratio in the quarter was 97 percent. Results in the quarter also included $4 million of favorable tax benefits from a prior year true-up.
  • Flow NIW increased 23 percent from the prior quarter and increased 17 percent from the prior year to $7.5 billion.
  • The risk-to-capital ratio for Genworth Mortgage Insurance Corporation (GMICO) is estimated at 14.8:1[6] and the combined risk-to-capital ratio is estimated at 15.4:1[6] as of September 30, 2014.

Total flow delinquencies decreased three percent sequentially and 25 percent versus the prior year. New flow delinquencies increased approximately nine percent from the prior quarter from normal seasonal variation and decreased approximately 19 percent from the prior year, reflecting the continued burn through of delinquencies from the 2005 to 2008 book years. The flow average reserve per delinquency was $30,700, up slightly from the prior quarter. 

Total losses were up $79 million versus the prior quarter reflecting pre-tax accruals of approximately $53 million principally in connection with the settlement agreement with Bank of America as well as discussions with another servicer in an effort to resolve pending disputes over loss mitigation activities. Subject to consent by the government sponsored enterprises (GSEs), the settlement agreement with Bank of America to resolve claims curtailment together with the rescission settlement agreement previously executed will resolve the pending arbitrations. Versus the prior quarter, losses were also impacted from seasonally higher new delinquency development and less favorable net cures and aging of existing delinquencies. The charges of $53 million pre-tax increased the loss ratio by 37 percentage points in the quarter. Loss mitigation savings were $67 million in the quarter.

Flow NIW of $7.5 billion increased 23 percent from the prior quarter and increased 17 percent versus the prior year primarily from a larger purchase origination market and market share gains. Overall private mortgage insurance market penetration was up approximately one point compared with the prior quarter and up approximately four points year over year as the originations market shifted from refinances to a purchase market. The company's estimate of its market share at the end of the quarter is approximately 15 percent. Flow persistency was 80 percent. In addition, the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) accounted for about $0.3 billion in the quarter of insurance that is treated as a modification of the coverage on existing insurance in force rather than NIW, bringing the total current risk-in-force under the HARP program to $4.9 billion.

The combined U.S. MI statutory risk-to-capital ratio is estimated at 15.4:1[6] at the end of the third quarter with the risk-to-capital ratio for GMICO estimated at 14.8:1[6].

On July 10, 2014, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) released publicly a draft of the revised GSE private mortgage insurer eligibility requirements (PMIERs guidelines). The company currently intends that its U.S. mortgage insurance business will meet the additional capital requirements contained in the PMIERs guidelines by the anticipated effective date of June 30, 2015, primarily through reinsurance (or similar) transactions, together with cash available at the holding company. The company will seek to utilize the transition period provided for in the draft guidelines if it does not comply by the anticipated effective date (subject to GSE approval). The company and its U.S. MI business believe that they are well positioned to meet the draft version of the operational and financial requirements contained in the guidelines within the prescribed transition period and expect the business to maintain its strong presence in the private mortgage insurance market.

The company previously disclosed its preliminary estimates of the additional capital required to meet the PMIERs guidelines in their current form and operate its business as being between $450 million and $550 million as of June 30, 2015 and less than $175 million as of December 31, 2016. The company now estimates that the amount of additional capital required to meet these guidelines and operate its business will be between $500 million and $700 million as of June 30, 2015. The revised estimate is a result of, among other factors, changes in the company's estimate of available assets and risk-based required assets amounts as calculated under the PMIERs guidelines due to, among other things, the accrual recorded in connection with the settlement agreement with Bank of America and discussions with another servicer in an effort to resolve pending disputes over loss mitigation activities and declines in the value of the shares of the company's Canadian mortgage insurance subsidiary that are owned by the U.S. mortgage insurance business (primarily as a result of the impact of foreign exchange movements on the value of those shares), as well as changes in calculations and the company's interpretation of the guidelines. The company's estimate is based on the current draft guidelines as it understands them and is subject to change.

The company is no longer estimating, and withdraws its prior estimate of, the amount of additional capital needed as of December 31, 2016 (the end of the proposed transition period for compliance) in order to meet these guidelines and operate its business, both because the company intends to comply with the new PMIERs guidelines by June 30, 2015 and because of the increased uncertainties involved in providing an estimate for such an extended time period.

International Protection Segment

International Protection reported net operating income of $3 million, compared with $2 million in the prior quarter and $4 million in the prior year. At quarter end, the lifestyle protection business had a regulatory capital ratio of approximately 352 percent[6], well in excess of regulatory requirements.

Runoff Segment

The Runoff segment's net operating income was $5 million, compared with $15 million in the prior quarter and $25 million in the prior year. Results in the current quarter reflect lower equity market performance versus the prior quarter and prior year primarily impacting variable annuity products. Taxes were more favorable in the prior quarter and prior year. Results in the current quarter also include a favorable impact from refinement of deferred acquisition costs assumptions related to the company's annual review of assumptions in variable annuity products.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other's net operating loss was $88 million, compared with $64 million in the prior quarter and $88 million in the prior year. Results in the current quarter reflect unfavorable taxes versus the prior quarter.

Investment Portfolio Performance

Net investment income decreased to $805 million, compared to $813 million in the prior quarter primarily from an unfavorable prepayment speed adjustment on structured securities. The reported yield for the current quarter was approximately 4.57 percent. The core yield[2] was up slightly compared to the prior quarter at approximately 4.46 percent.

Net investment losses, net of taxes and other adjustments, were $10 million in the quarter, compared to $13 million in the prior year. Total investment impairments, net of taxes, were $4 million in the current quarter and $3 million in the prior year.

Net unrealized investment gains were $2.1 billion, net of taxes and other items, as of September 30, 2014 compared with $1.1 billion as of September 30, 2013 and $2.1 billion as of June 30, 2014. The fixed maturity securities portfolio had gross unrealized investment gains of $5.0 billion compared with $3.7 billion as of September 30, 2013 and gross unrealized investment losses of $0.3 billion compared with $1.0 billion as of September 30, 2013.

Holding Company

Genworth's holding company[8] ended the quarter with approximately $1.1 billion[9] of cash and liquid assets, down approximately $85 million compared to the prior quarter, from $63 million of debt interest payments and $22 million of net other expenses. The holding company targets maintaining cash balances of at least one and a half times its annual debt service expense plus a risk buffer of $350 million. The company ended the quarter with a buffer of approximately $720 million in excess of one and a half times annual debt service.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures entitled "net operating income (loss)" and "operating earnings per share." Operating earnings per share is derived from net operating income (loss). The chief operating decision maker evaluates segment performance and allocates resources on the basis of net operating income (loss). The company defines net operating income (loss) as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effects of income attributable to noncontrolling interests, net investment gains (losses), goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions and infrequent or unusual non-operating items. Gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are defined as gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of non-recourse funding obligations, early termination fees for other financing restructuring and/or resulting gains (losses) on reinsurance restructuring for certain blocks of business. The company excludes net investment gains (losses) and infrequent or unusual non-operating items because the company does not consider them to be related to the operating performance of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities. A component of the company's net investment gains (losses) is the result of impairments, the size and timing of which can vary significantly depending on market credit cycles. In addition, the size and timing of other investment gains (losses) can be subject to the company's discretion and are influenced by market opportunities, as well as asset-liability matching considerations. Goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt and gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are also excluded from net operating income (loss) because, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. Other non-operating items are also excluded from net operating income (loss) if, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. 

In the third quarter of 2014, the company recorded goodwill impairments of $350 million, net of taxes, in the life insurance business and $167 million, net of taxes, in the long term care insurance business.

The following transactions were excluded from net operating income (loss) for the periods presented as they related to the loss on the early extinguishment of debt. In the second quarter of 2014, the company paid an early redemption payment of approximately $2 million, net of taxes and portion attributable to noncontrolling interests, related to the early redemption of Genworth MI Canada Inc.'s notes that were scheduled to mature in 2015. In the third quarter of 2013, the company paid a make-whole expense of approximately $20 million, net of taxes, related to the early redemption of Genworth Holdings' notes that were scheduled to mature in 2015.

There were no infrequent or unusual items excluded from net operating income (loss) during the periods presented.

While some of these items may be significant components of net income (loss) available to Genworth's  common stockholders in accordance with GAAP, the company believes that net operating income (loss) and measures that are derived from or incorporate net operating income (loss), including net operating income (loss) per common share on a basic and diluted basis, are appropriate measures that are useful to investors because they identify the income (loss) attributable to the ongoing operations of the business. Management also uses net operating income (loss) as a basis for determining awards and compensation for senior management and to evaluate performance on a basis comparable to that used by analysts. However, the items excluded from net operating income (loss) have occurred in the past and could, and in some cases will, recur in the future. Net operating income (loss) and net operating income (loss) per common share on a basic and diluted basis are not substitutes for net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders or net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders per common share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of net operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.

The tables at the end of this press release reflect net operating income (loss) as determined in accordance with accounting guidance related to segment reporting, and a reconciliation of net operating income (loss) of the company's segments and Corporate and Other activities to net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, as well as for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Adjustments to reconcile net income (loss) attributable to Genworth's common stockholders and net operating income (loss) assume a 35 percent tax rate and are net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests. Net investment gains (losses) are also adjusted for deferred acquisition costs and other intangible amortization and certain benefit reserves.

This press release also includes non-GAAP financial measures entitled "net income (loss) before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business" and "net operating income (loss) before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business." The company defines net income (loss) before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business and net operating income (loss) before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business as net income (loss) or net operating income (loss), as applicable, adjusted for net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business but before noncontrolling interests in the Canada MI business. These measures are presented as they are comparable to net income (loss) and net operating income (loss) for the third quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2014. However, net income (loss) before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business and net operating income (loss) before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business are not substitutes for net income (loss) and net operating income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net income (loss) before net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business and net operating income (loss) before net operating income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business to net income (loss) and net operating income (loss) is included in a table at the end of this press release.

This press release includes a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes from benefits and other changes in policy reserves, net of taxes, for the long term care insurance business: the increase to claim reserves from the completion of a comprehensive review of the company's long term care insurance claim reserves conducted over the past few months, the impacts of the correction of a calculation of benefit utilization for policies with a benefit inflation option and the impacts from premium increases approved and implemented to date, net of taxes. Management believes that analysis of benefits and other changes in policy reserves excluding those items enhances understanding of the underlying claims experience in the current period. However, benefits and other changes in policy reserves excluding those items are not substitutes for benefits and other changes in policy reserves, net of taxes, determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of benefits and other changes in policy reserves excluding those items to reported GAAP benefits and other changes in policy reserves, net of taxes, is included in a table at the end of this press release.

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure entitled "core yield" as a measure of investment yield. The company defines core yield as the investment yield adjusted for those items that are not recurring in nature. Management believes that analysis of core yield enhances understanding of the investment yield of the company. However, core yield is not a substitute for investment yield determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of core yield may differ from the definitions used by other companies. A reconciliation of core yield to reported GAAP yield is included in a table at the end of this press release.

Definition of Selected Operating Performance Measures
The company reports selected operating performance measures including "sales" and "insurance in force" or "risk in force" which are commonly used in the insurance industry as measures of operating performance.

Management regularly monitors and reports sales metrics as a measure of volume of new and renewal business generated in a period. Sales refer to: (1) annualized first-year premiums for term life and long term care insurance products; (2) annualized first-year deposits plus five percent of excess deposits for universal and term universal life insurance products; (3) 10 percent of premium deposits for linked-benefits products; (4) new and additional premiums/deposits for fixed annuities; (5) new insurance written for mortgage insurance; and (6) net premiums written for the lifestyle protection insurance business. Sales do not include renewal premiums on policies or contracts written during prior periods. The company considers annualized first-year premiums/deposits, premium equivalents, new premiums/deposits, new insurance written, and net premiums written to be a measure of the company's operating performance because they represent a measure of new sales of insurance policies or contracts during a specified period, rather than a measure of the company's revenues or profitability during that period.

Management regularly monitors and reports insurance in force and risk in force. Insurance in force for the life, international mortgage and U.S. mortgage insurance businesses is a measure of the aggregate face value of outstanding insurance policies as of the respective reporting date. For risk in force in the international mortgage insurance business, the company has computed an "effective" risk in force amount, which recognizes that the loss on any particular loan will be reduced by the net proceeds received upon sale of the property. Effective risk in force has been calculated by applying to insurance in force a factor of 35 percent that represents the highest expected average per-claim payment for any one underwriting year over the life of the company's businesses in Canada and Australia. Risk in force for the U.S. mortgage insurance business is the obligation that is limited under contractual terms to the amounts less than 100 percent of the mortgage loan value.  The company considers insurance in force and risk in force to be measures of the company's operating performance because they represent measures of the size of the business at a specific date which will generate revenues and profits in a future period, rather than measures of the company's revenues or profitability during that period.

This press release also includes information related to loss mitigation activities for the U.S. mortgage insurance business. The company defines loss mitigation activities as rescissions, cancellations, borrower loan modifications, repayment plans, lender- and borrower-titled presales, claims administration and other loan workouts. Estimated savings related to rescissions are the reduction in carried loss reserves, net of premium refunds and reinstatement of prior rescissions. Estimated savings related to loan modifications and other cure related loss mitigation actions represent the reduction in carried loss reserves. Estimated savings related to claims mitigation activities represent amounts deducted or "curtailed" from claims due to acts or omissions by the insured or the servicer with respect to the servicing of an insured loan that is not in compliance with obligations under the company's master policy. For non-cure related actions, including presales, the estimated savings represent the difference between the full claim obligation and the actual amount paid. Loans subject to the company's loss mitigation actions, the results of which have been included in the company's reported estimated loss mitigation savings, are subject to re-default and may result in a potential claim in future periods, as well as potential future loss mitigation savings depending on the resolution of the re-defaulted loan. The company believes that this information helps to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the U.S. mortgage insurance business as loss mitigation activities specifically impact current and future loss reserves and level of claim payments.

Management also regularly monitors and reports a loss ratio for the company's businesses. For the long term care insurance business, the loss ratio is the ratio of benefits and other changes in reserves less tabular interest on reserves less loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums.  For the mortgage and lifestyle protection insurance businesses, the loss ratio is the ratio of incurred losses and loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. The company considers the loss ratio to be a measure of underwriting performance in these businesses and helps to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the businesses.

An assumed tax rate of 35 percent is utilized in certain adjustments to net operating income (loss) and in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance and investment results.

These operating performance measures enable the company to compare its operating performance across periods without regard to revenues or profitability related to policies or contracts sold in prior periods or from investments or other sources.

the significant portion of the company's international mortgage insurance risk in force with high loan-to-value ratios; increases in U.S. mortgage insurance default rates; failure to meet, or have waived to the extent needed, the company's U.S. mortgage insurance subsidiaries' minimum statutory capital requirements and hazardous financial condition standards; the influence of Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and a small number of large mortgage lenders and investors and changes to the role or structure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac;

  • Risks relating to the company's common stock, including the suspension of dividends and stock price fluctuations.

The company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

[1] Unless otherwise stated, all references in this press release to net income (loss), net income (loss) per share, book value, book value per share and stockholders' equity should be read as net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders, net income (loss) available to Genworth's common stockholders per share, book value available to Genworth's common stockholders, book value available to Genworth's common stockholders per share and stockholders' equity available to Genworth's common stockholders, respectively.

[2] This is a financial measure not calculated based on U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (Non-GAAP).  See the Use of Non-GAAP Measures section of this press release for additional information.

[3] The company defines "NM" as not meaningful for increases or decreases greater than 200 percent.

[4] Under applicable accounting guidance, companies in a loss position are required to use basic weighted average common shares outstanding in the calculation of diluted loss per share. Therefore, as a result of the company's loss for the three months ended September 30, 2014, the company was required to use basic weighted average common shares outstanding in the calculation of diluted loss per share, as the inclusion of shares for stock options, restricted stock units and stock appreciation rights would have been antidilutive to the calculation. If the company had not incurred a loss during the quarter, dilutive potential weighted average common shares outstanding would have been 502.0 million.

[5] Excludes net income attributable to noncontrolling interests in the Australia MI business of $23 million and $11 million, respectively, in the third quarter of 2014 and second quarter of 2014 related to the Australia MI IPO completed on May 21, 2014.

[6] Company estimate for the third quarter of 2014, due to timing of the filing of statutory statements.

[7] Percent change excludes the impact of foreign exchange.

[8] Holding company cash and liquid assets comprises assets held in Genworth Holdings, Inc. (the issuer of outstanding public debt) which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Genworth Financial, Inc.

[9] Comprises cash and cash equivalents of $988 million and U.S. government bonds of $150 million.

[10] All percentages are comparing the third quarter of 2014 to the third quarter of 2013 unless otherwise stated.

[11] The impact of foreign exchange was calculated using the comparable prior period exchange rates.

[12] Represents the incremental assets and investment income related to restricted commercial mortgage loans and other invested assets.

[13] Represents imputed investment income related to reinsurance agreements in the lifestyle protection insurance business.

[14] Includes cost basis adjustments on structured securities, preferred stock income and various other immaterial items.
