Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW) today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The company reported net income of $202 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017, up 17 percent as compared with net income of $172 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016. The adjusted operating income for the second quarter of 2017 was $151 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, up 23 percent as compared with adjusted operating income of $123 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016.

Strategic Update

Genworth and Oceanwide continue to work diligently to satisfy the closing conditions under their previously announced proposed transaction and are committed to closing the transaction as soon as possible.

Since the end of the first quarter, the two companies reported the following progress toward completing the transaction: 

  • On July 13, 2017, Genworth and Oceanwide withdrew and refiled their joint voluntary notice to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) for a second time to provide CFIUS more time to review and discuss the proposed transaction. CFIUS' acceptance of the refiled joint voluntary notice commenced a new 30-day review period, which may be followed by an additional 45-day investigation period.
  • Effective July 1, 2017, Genworth completed the remaining internal reinsurance and recapture transactions required under the Oceanwide merger agreement. We expect these transactions to create a 15 to 20 point decline in consolidated risk-based capital (RBC) ratio from a reduction in covariance benefit.

In addition to clearance by CFIUS, the closing of the proposed transaction remains subject to the receipt of required regulatory approvals in the U.S., China, and other international jurisdictions and other closing conditions. Genworth and Oceanwide continue to be actively engaged with the relevant regulators regarding the pending applications.

Because the timing of the regulatory reviews will delay the completion of the transaction beyond the originally targeted time frame of the middle of 2017, Genworth and Oceanwide have agreed in principle to extend the August 31, 2017 deadline set forth in the merger agreement to November 30, 2017, with the associated documentation expected to be finalized in the near term. Genworth and Oceanwide remain committed to satisfying the closing conditions under the merger agreement as soon as possible and now anticipate that the transaction will be completed during the fourth quarter of 2017, subject to receipt of the required regulatory approvals.

"Genworth strongly believes the pending transaction with Oceanwide is the best option for our shareholders, policyholders and other stakeholders," said Tom McInerney, president and CEO of Genworth. "The transaction will strengthen Genworth's financial position in the mortgage insurance and long term care insurance markets.  Because of our leadership role in the long term care insurance industry, the merger also has implications for our nation's ability to finance burgeoning long term care costs. As a result of the merger, Genworth will be in a better position to support the market and help the government and taxpayers shoulder the burden of long term care financing."

Added LU Zhiqiang, chairman of Oceanwide: "I remain committed to satisfying the closing conditions under the merger agreement as soon as possible. I believe the merger will strengthen Genworth and its leadership role in mortgage insurance and the U.S. long term care insurance market, and allow us to bring best practices from the recognized leader in long term care insurance to China as we expand our long term care insurance capabilities and work together to address a common challenge for our aging populations."

Meanwhile, Genworth continues to make substantial progress on its stated strategic goals, including maximizing opportunities in its mortgage insurance businesses, achieving significant long term care insurance premium rate increases consistent with its multi-year plan and restructuring its U.S. life insurance businesses.

U.S. MI reported adjusted operating income of $91 million, compared with $73 million in the prior quarter and $61 million in the prior year.  The loss ratio in the current quarter was two percent, down 15 points sequentially and down 22 points from the prior year.  During the quarter, the company made a favorable reserve adjustment of $10 million after-tax primarily associated with lower expected claim rates on existing delinquencies, which benefited the loss ratio by eight points. 

Flow New Insurance Written (NIW) of $9.8 billion increased 29 percent from the prior quarter from a seasonally larger purchase originations market, but decreased 14 percent versus the prior year primarily from lower originations and a decline in market share. U.S. MI's flow insurance in force increased 12 percent in the second quarter of 2017 versus the second quarter of 2016 driven primarily by strong NIW and continued elevated persistency.

Canada MI reported adjusted operating income of $41 million versus $36 million in the prior quarter and $38 million in the prior year. The loss ratio in the quarter was four percent, down 12 points from the prior quarter and down 16 points compared to the prior year from a decrease in new delinquencies and strong cure activity reflecting the ongoing housing market strength and underlying economic conditions.  New delinquencies, net of cures, were down in all regions sequentially and versus the prior year.

Flow NIW was up 65 percent3 sequentially primarily from a seasonally larger originations market and down 14 percent3 from the prior year primarily from a smaller market size from regulatory changes introduced in late 2016.  Effective March 17, 2017, Canada MI increased its flow mortgage insurance premium rates for new insured mortgages by approximately 20 percent to reflect the updated regulatory capital framework that came into effect on January 1, 2017.  Bulk NIW decreased versus the prior quarter and prior year as a result of regulatory changes introduced in 2016.

Flow NIW was flat sequentially and down 18 percent3 from the prior year primarily from lower market penetration attributable to a change in customer mix.

Long Term Care Insurance

Long Term Care Insurance (LTC) reported adjusted operating income of $33 million, compared with $14 million in the prior quarter and $37 million in the prior year. Compared to the prior quarter, results reflected higher premiums and higher reserve releases from reduced benefit elections by in-force policyholders, partially offset by less favorable existing claims experience. Results in the quarter were favorably impacted by reserve corrections, net of profits followed by losses reserves, associated with recorded initial claim dates of $13 million after-tax. Prior quarter results included an unfavorable accrual for state guaranty fund assessments of $14 million after-tax relating to the Penn Treaty plan of liquidation. Results versus the prior year reflected continued growth of new claims, partially offset by improved existing claims experience.  Prior year results also included $29 million of after-tax unfavorable items.

Life Insurance

Life insurance reported an adjusted operating loss of $1 million, compared with adjusted operating income of $16 million in the prior quarter and $31 million in the prior year. Compared to the prior quarter, results reflected higher lapses and accelerated amortization of deferred acquisition costs (DAC) primarily associated with large 15-year and 20-year term life insurance blocks entering their post-level premium periods and modestly improved mortality. Results versus the prior year reflect higher reserve and DAC impacts associated with the fourth quarter of 2016 assumption review, unfavorable mortality and higher DAC amortization from lapses partially offset by higher variable investment income. Results in the quarter included a negative impact of $14 million after-tax, which was the net effect of a charge from model corrections related to updating mortality tables for term conversion policies that was partially offset by a net favorable refinement related to reinsurance rates.

Fixed Annuities

Fixed annuities reported adjusted operating income of $7 million, compared with $23 million in the prior quarter and an adjusted operating loss of $13 million in the prior year.  Results in the quarter included a $10 million after-tax charge from loss recognition testing on the single premium immediate annuity block related to lower interest rates. Results in the quarter also reflected unfavorable mortality versus the prior quarter.  Prior year results included $28 million of after-tax unfavorable items. 

Runoff

Runoff reported adjusted operating income of $11 million compared with $14 million in the prior quarter and $6 million in the prior year.  Results varied from the prior quarter due to unfavorable mortality in the corporate-owned life insurance (COLI) products while benefitting from favorable equity market performance versus the prior year. 

Corporate And Other

Corporate and Other reported an adjusted operating loss of $43 million, compared with $46 million in the prior quarter and $52 million in the prior year.  Results in the current quarter include favorable tax benefits of $7 million, the majority of which is expected to reverse in the second half of 2017 due to the timing of when tax items are recorded.  Prior quarter results reflected a correction to our GE Tax Matters Agreement liability.

Financial Supplement Information

This press release, second quarter 2017 financial supplement and earnings presentation are now posted on the company's website. Investors are encouraged to review these materials. Due to the pending sale to Oceanwide, the company does not plan to host an earnings call.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures entitled "adjusted operating income (loss)" and "adjusted operating income (loss) per share." Adjusted operating income (loss) per share is derived from adjusted operating income (loss). The chief operating decision maker evaluates segment performance and allocates resources on the basis of adjusted operating income (loss). The company defines adjusted 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, restructuring costs 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, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions and restructuring costs are also excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) because, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. Infrequent or unusual non-operating items are also excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) if, in the company's opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. 

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 adjusted operating income (loss) and measures that are derived from or incorporate adjusted operating income (loss), including adjusted operating income (loss) per 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 adjusted 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 adjusted operating income (loss) have occurred in the past and could, and in some cases will, recur in the future. Adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted operating income (loss) per 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 share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of adjusted operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.

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

In June 2016, the company completed the sale of its term life insurance new business platform and recorded a pre-tax gain of $12 million. In May 2016, the company completed the sale of its mortgage insurance business in Europe and recorded an additional pre-tax loss of $2 million. These transactions were excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) for the periods presented as they related to a gain (loss) on the sale of businesses.

In June 2016, the company settled restricted borrowings of $70 million related to a securitization entity and recorded a $64 million pre-tax gain related to the early extinguishment of debt. This transaction was excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) for the periods presented as it related to a gain (loss) on the early extinguishment of debt.

In the first quarter of 2017, the company recorded a pre-tax expense of $1 million related to restructuring costs as part of an expense reduction plan as the company evaluates and appropriately sizes its organizational needs and expenses. In the second quarter of 2016, the company also recorded a pre-tax expense of $5 million related to restructuring costs.

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

The tables at the end of this press release provide a reconciliation of net income available to Genworth's common stockholders to adjusted operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, as well as for the three months ended March 31, 2017, and reflect adjusted operating income as determined in accordance with accounting guidance related to segment reporting.

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 items that do not reflect the underlying performance of the investment portfolio. 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) new insurance written for mortgage insurance; (2) annualized first-year premiums for long term care and term life insurance products; (3) annualized first-year deposits plus five percent of excess deposits for universal and term universal life insurance products; (4) 10 percent of premium deposits for linked-benefits products; and (5) new and additional premiums/deposits for fixed annuities. Sales do not include renewal premiums on policies or contracts written during prior periods. The company considers new insurance written, annualized first-year premiums/deposits, premium equivalents and new premiums/deposits 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 also regularly monitors and reports a loss ratio for the company's businesses. For the mortgage insurance businesses, the loss ratio is the ratio of incurred losses and loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. 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. 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 adjusted 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.
