Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW) today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The company reported net income2 of $146 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018, compared with net income of $107 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2017.  Adjusted operating income3 for the third quarter of 2018 was $145 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with adjusted operating income of $76 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2017.

Genworth's effective tax rate for the quarter was approximately 23 percent and benefitted four percent from net favorable tax adjustments in the quarter.  Beginning January 1, 2018, the company's domestic businesses are taxed at the new enacted tax rate of 21 percent.  However, gains on forward starting swaps settled prior to the change in the corporate tax rate will continue to be tax effected at a 35 percent tax rate as they are amortized into net investment income.

Strategic Update

Genworth and Oceanwide continue to work towards closing their previously announced proposed transaction.

On October 26, 2018, the Delaware Department of Insurance announced it scheduled a public hearing at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 on the proposed acquisition of control of Delaware-domiciled Genworth Life Insurance Company (GLIC) by entities affiliated with Oceanwide in connection with the pending acquisition of Genworth by Oceanwide. Genworth and Oceanwide also announced the parties agreed that Genworth Holdings, Inc. will contribute $175 million to GLIC, which was previously committed by Genworth to be used as partial consideration for unstacking Genworth Life and Annuity Insurance Company (GLAIC) from GLIC. The $175 million will be contributed in three equal tranches, with the first contribution completed by the end of March 2019, the second contribution completed by the end of September 2019 and the final contribution completed by the end of January 2020.

Since the last earnings update, the parties announced additional developments as they relate to the proposed transaction and ongoing execution of Genworth's strategic priorities:

  • Oceanwide and Genworth disclosed a capital investment plan to its regulators whereby Oceanwide would contribute an aggregate of $1.5 billion to Genworth over time following the consummation of the transaction, with the final amounts to be contributed by March 31, 2020. Such contribution will be subject to the closing of the proposed transaction and the filing and/or receipt of required regulatory approvals. The contribution would be used to further improve Genworth's financial stability, which may include retiring Genworth's debt due in 2020 and 2021 or enabling future growth opportunities.
  • Given the parties will no longer pursue the aforementioned GLAIC unstacking, and in line with Genworth's strategic objective to isolate the LTC business, Genworth completed a bond consent solicitation to clarify that GLAIC is included in the class of subsidiaries previously removed from bankruptcy, insolvency and similar events of default with respect to certain outstanding senior notes.
  • The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) accepted Oceanwide's filing with respect to the proposed transaction, which concludes NDRC's review process and enables Oceanwide to move forward with the rest of the regulatory processes in China.

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.

"The scheduling of the hearing with Delaware is a significant milestone in our regulatory review process and a major step towards closing the transaction with Oceanwide," said Tom McInerney, president and CEO of Genworth. "Given the timing of the hearing and subsequent expected review period, we are targeting closing the transaction by year-end."

LU Zhiqiang, chairman of Oceanwide, added: "Oceanwide is pleased with the progress made in the regulatory review process, and looks forward to closing the transaction by year-end."

Net income in the third quarter of 2018 was impacted by net investment gains, net of taxes and other adjustments, of $2 million in the quarter. Net income in the third quarter of 2017 benefitted from net investment gains, net of taxes and other adjustments, of $40 million.

Net investment income was $815 million in the quarter, down from $828 million in the prior quarter and up from $797 million in the prior year.  Net investment income decreased versus the prior quarter due to lower income from limited partnerships and the inflation impact on U.S. Government Treasury Inflation Protected Securities. Net investment income increased compared to the prior year due to higher investment yields. The reported yield and the core yield3 for the quarter were 4.64 percent and 4.59 percent, respectively.

U.S. MI reported adjusted operating income of $118 million, compared with $137 million in the prior quarter and $73 million in the prior year.  The loss ratio in the current quarter was 11 percent, up 19 points sequentially and down nine points from the prior year.  Losses in the prior quarter included a favorable $28 million pre-tax loss reserve adjustment, which reduced the loss ratio by 15 points in the second quarter.  Results in the current quarter benefitted from a lower corporate tax rate and higher premiums principally related to an increase in insurance in force compared to the prior year.  There were no material incremental incurred losses in the quarter from areas impacted by the fourth quarter 2017 hurricanes, and delinquencies in those areas are curing in line with the company's original loss expectations.  The risk in force exposure to the recent hurricanes (Florence and Michael) is much lower and therefore the company does not expect any material impact from these events.

Flow New Insurance Written (NIW) of $10.3 billion decreased 10 percent from the prior quarter and decreased nine percent versus the prior year primarily from a decrease in estimated market share due to the loss of a large customer, partially offset by a larger private mortgage insurance market.  During the third quarter of 2018, the company's concentration of single premium flow NIW was 18 percent, up three points from the prior quarter and down six points from the prior year as it continues its selective participation in this market.  U.S. MI's flow insurance in force increased 11 percent versus the prior year driven primarily by strong NIW and persistency.

Canada MI reported adjusted operating income of $44 million versus $46 million in the prior quarter and $37 million in the prior year.  Results in the current quarter benefitted from a lower corporate tax rate compared to the prior year.  The loss ratio in the quarter was 14 percent, down one point sequentially primarily from a lower level of new delinquencies, net of cures.  The loss ratio was flat compared to the prior year as lower new delinquencies were offset by less favorable loss reserve development.

Flow NIW was up 16 percent4 sequentially from a seasonally larger originations market and down two percent4 from the prior year primarily from a modestly smaller market size from regulatory changes and housing affordability pressure.

Australia MI reported adjusted operating income of $17 million, compared to $22 million in the prior quarter and $12 million in the prior year.  Results in the prior quarter were favorably impacted by approximately $4 million after-tax as a result of increased recognition of premiums driven by higher policy cancellations.  Results increased versus the prior year primarily due to the impact of the premium earnings pattern review that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The loss ratio in the quarter was 31 percent, up three points sequentially from higher earned premiums in the prior quarter due to an increase in policy cancellations and down six points compared to the prior year due to an increase in earned premiums as well as favorable loss performance.

Flow NIW was up five percent4 sequentially and up eight percent4 from the prior year primarily from increased mortgage origination activity from certain key customers during the quarter.

Long Term Care Insurance

LTC reported an adjusted operating loss of $24 million, compared with adjusted operating income of $22 million in the prior quarter and an adjusted operating loss of $5 million in the prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter reflected seasonally lower terminations and lower earnings from the acquired block, partially offset by reduced benefits and higher premiums from in force rate actions.  Compared to the prior year, results reflected lower terminations and higher severity and frequency of new claims, partially offset by higher premiums and reduced benefits from in force rate actions.  Current and prior quarter results also included  incremental tax expenses of $5 million and $6 million, respectively, above the 21 percent corporate tax rate as a result of the amortization of forward starting swap gains settled prior to the change in the corporate tax rate.

The company has typically conducted a review of its LTC claims reserve assumptions in the third quarter of each year but this year will be completing its review in the fourth quarter.  The company will also complete loss recognition and cash flow testing for all of its U.S. Life insurance products in the fourth quarter.

Life Insurance

Life insurance reported an adjusted operating loss of $2 million, compared with adjusted operating income of $4 million in the prior quarter and an adjusted operating loss of $9 million in the prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter reflected lower premiums in the term life insurance blocks.  Results in the prior year included a net unfavorable impact of $15 million after-tax from model refinements. Results versus the prior year also reflected lower in force earnings in the term life insurance block of business from increased reinsurance as well as runoff of the block, partially offset by higher investment spread.  The company also continued to experience unfavorable mortality in its universal and term universal life insurance products and will be considering this as part of its fourth quarter assumption review.

Fixed Annuities

Fixed annuities reported adjusted operating income of $23 million, compared with $31 million in the prior quarter and $13 million in the prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter reflected lower variable investment income and unfavorable mortality.  Results in the prior year included a $6 million after-tax charge from loss recognition testing on the single premium immediate annuity block related to low interest rates.  Results versus the prior year also reflected favorable mortality and lower taxes, partially offset by lower variable investment income.  

Runoff

Runoff reported adjusted operating income of $14 million compared with $13 million in both the prior quarter and prior year.  Results versus the prior quarter reflected favorable equity market performance supporting the company's variable annuity business, partially offset by less favorable mortality in the corporate owned life insurance product.  Results compared to the prior year reflected lower taxes.

Corporate And Other

Corporate and Other reported an adjusted operating loss of $45 million, compared with $75 million in the prior quarter and $58 million in the prior year.  Results in the current quarter include net favorable tax benefits of $10 million primarily related to tax reform adjustments.  Results in the prior quarter included a provisional tax expense of $19 million related to a revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities on foreign subsidiaries.  Results in the prior year included unfavorable tax charges of $7 million for changes and corrections related to prior period tax returns.  Given the change in the corporate tax rate, results in the current quarter also reflected a lower tax benefit offsetting the Corporate and Other pre-tax loss compared to the prior year.

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 (loss) 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 Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders in accordance with U.S. 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 Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders or net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders per share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the company's definition of adjusted operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was signed into law. The TCJA reduced the U.S. corporate federal income tax rate to 21 percent effective for taxable years beginning on January 1, 2018. Therefore, beginning in the first quarter of 2018, the company assumed a tax rate of 21 percent on certain adjustments to reconcile net income available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders and adjusted operating income and in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance (unless otherwise indicated). In the prior year, the company assumed a tax rate of 35 percent, the previous U.S. corporate federal income tax rate prior to the enactment of the TCJA, on certain adjustments to reconcile net income available to Genworth Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders and adjusted operating income and in the explanation of specific variances of operating performance. These adjustments are also net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests and net investment gains (losses) are adjusted for DAC and other intangible amortization and certain benefit reserves.

The company recorded a pre-tax expense of $2 million in the third quarter of 2018 and $1 million in the third quarter of 2017 related to restructuring costs as it continues to evaluate and appropriately size its organizational needs and expenses. 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 Financial, Inc.'s common stockholders to adjusted operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, as well as for the three months ended June 30, 2018, and reflect adjusted operating income (loss) 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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 business generated in a period. Sales refer to new insurance written for mortgage insurance. The company considers new insurance written to be a measure of the company's operating performance because it represents a measure of new sales of insurance policies 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 company's mortgage insurance business is a measure of the aggregate original loan balance for outstanding insurance policies as of the respective reporting date.  Risk in force for the company's U.S. mortgage insurance business is based on the coverage percentage applied to the estimated current outstanding loan balance.  The company considers insurance in force and risk in force to be measures of its operating performance because they represent measures of the size of its business at a specific date which will generate revenues and profits in a future period, rather than measures of its 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 benefits and other changes in policy reserves 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.

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.

  • risks related to the proposed transaction with Oceanwide including: the company's inability to complete the transaction in a timely manner or at all; the parties' inability to obtain regulatory approvals, or the possibility that such regulatory approvals may further delay the transaction or will not be received prior to December 1, 2018 (and either or both of the parties may not be willing to further waive their end date termination rights beyond December 1, 2018) or that materially burdensome or adverse regulatory conditions may be imposed or undesirable measures may be required in connection with any such regulatory approvals (including those conditions or measures that either or both of the parties may be unwilling to accept or undertake, as applicable); the risk that the parties will not be able to obtain other regulatory approvals, including approval of the Oceanwide transaction with no unstacking, a potential alternative funding structure or in connection with the current geo-political environment; the parties' inability to obtain any necessary regulatory approvals for the post-closing capital plan; the risk that a closing condition of the transaction may not be satisfied; existing and potential legal proceedings may be instituted against the company in connection with the transaction that may delay the transaction, make it more costly or ultimately preclude it; the risk that the proposed transaction disrupts the company's current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the transaction; certain restrictions during the pendency of the transaction that may impact the company's ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions; continued availability of capital and financing to the company before, or in the absence of, the consummation of the transaction; further rating agency actions and downgrades in the company's debt or financial strength ratings; changes in applicable laws or regulations; the company's ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the transaction; the amount of the costs, fees, expenses and other charges related to the transaction; the risks related to diverting management's attention from the company's ongoing business operations; the merger agreement may be terminated in circumstances that would require the company to pay Oceanwide a fee; the company's ability to attract, recruit, retain and motivate current and prospective employees may be adversely affected; and disruptions and uncertainty relating to the transaction, whether or not it is completed, may harm the company's relationships with its employees, customers, distributors, vendors or other business partners, and may result in a negative impact on the company's business;

  • risks relating to the company's common stock including: the continued suspension of payment of dividends; and stock price fluctuations.
