Pembroke, Bermuda, July 28, 2020 -- RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd.

The Company reported an annualized return on average common equity of 38.5% and an annualized operating return on average common equity of 12.7% in the second quarter of 2020, compared to 28.9% and 15.6%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2019.

Kevin J. O’Donnell, President and Chief Executive Officer of RenaissanceRe, commented: “I am proud of our team’s performance in the second quarter, where we delivered strong financial results and accomplished several strategic goals. We demonstrated market leadership in both our Property and Casualty and Specialty segments, constructing a larger and more efficient portfolio through disciplined and focused underwriting. While COVID-19 continues to present unprecedented economic and societal challenges, we feel confident with our portfolio and raised over $1 billion of new common equity in anticipation of future opportunities that we believe will deliver long-term value for our shareholders.
Second Quarter of 2020 Summary
Gross premiums written increased by $225.0 million, or 15.2%, to $1.7 billion, in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019, driven by an increase of $203.3 million in the Property segment and an increase of $21.6 million in the Casualty and Specialty segment.
Underwriting income of $217.1 million and a combined ratio of 78.5% in the second quarter of 2020, compared to underwriting income of $170.8 million and a combined ratio of 81.3% in the second quarter of 2019. The Property segment generated underwriting income of $200.6 million and had a combined ratio of 59.1% in the second quarter of 2020. The Casualty and Specialty segment generated underwriting income of $16.5 million and had a combined ratio of 96.8% in the second quarter of 2020.
Total investment result was a gain of $537.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, generating an annualized total investment return of 11.8%, compared to a gain of $309.8 million and an annualized total investment return of 8.0% in the second quarter of 2019.
On June 5, 2020, the Company issued 6,325,000 of its common shares in an underwritten public offering at a public offering price of $166.00 per share. Concurrently with the public offering, the Company raised $75.0 million through the issuance of 451,807 of its common shares at a price of $166.00 per share to State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, one of the Company’s existing stockholders, in a private placement. The total net proceeds from the offerings were $1.1 billion. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from these offerings for general corporate purposes, which may include expanding existing business lines, entering new business lines, forming new joint ventures, or acquiring books of business from other companies.
Over $250.0 million of gross capital raised in the second quarter of 2020 through the Company’s managed joint ventures and third-party capital vehicles, including Upsilon RFO Re Ltd., Vermeer Reinsurance Ltd. (“Vermeer”) and RenaissanceRe Medici Fund Ltd (“Medici”).

Underwriting Results by Segment
Property Segment
Gross premiums written in the Property segment were $1.0 billion in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $203.3 million, or 24.2%, compared to $839.2 million in the second quarter of 2019.
Gross premiums written in the catastrophe class of business were $711.8 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $109.1 million, or 18.1%, compared to the second quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily driven by expanded participation on existing transactions, certain new transactions and rate improvements.
Gross premiums written in the other property class of business were $330.8 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $94.2 million, or 39.8%, compared to the second quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily driven by growth from existing relationships and new opportunities across a number of the Company’s underwriting platforms.
Ceded premiums written in the Property segment were $338.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $43.3 million, or 14.7%, compared to the second quarter of 2019. The increase in ceded premiums written was principally due to certain of the gross premiums written in the catastrophe class of business noted above being ceded to third-party investors in the Company’s managed vehicles, primarily RenaissanceRe Upsilon Fund Ltd.
The Property segment generated underwriting income of $200.6 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $151.7 million in the second quarter of 2019. In the second quarter of 2020, the Property segment generated a net claims and claim expense ratio of 33.4%, an underwriting expense ratio of 25.7% and a combined ratio of 59.1%, compared to 34.6%, 29.7% and 64.3%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2019. The underwriting result and combined ratio in the second quarter of 2020 improved principally due to a decrease in the underwriting expense ratio of 4.0 percentage points compared to the second quarter of 2019, driven by lower acquisition and operating expense ratios. The decrease in operating expenses was due in part to reduced travel, marketing and office operational expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The decrease in the net claims and claim expense ratio was primarily driven by net favorable development on prior accident years net claims and claim expenses of $6.6 million, or 1.3 percentage points, during the second quarter of 2020, resulting from reductions in the estimated ultimate losses associated with a number of small catastrophe events in prior periods. This was partially offset by higher current accident year net claims and claim expenses due to a higher level of attritional losses associated with a larger proportion of the other property class of business being earned in the period compared to the second quarter of 2019. In addition, the underwriting result was impacted by losses related to a number of small weather-related catastrophe events that occurred during the second quarter of 2020.
Casualty and Specialty Segment
Gross premiums written in the Casualty and Specialty segment were $659.3 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $21.6 million, or 3.4%, as compared to the second quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to growth from new and existing business opportunities written in the current and prior periods across various classes of business within the segment, substantially offset by non-renewal of a portion of the business acquired in connection with the acquisition of TMR (as defined herein).
The Casualty and Specialty segment generated underwriting income of $16.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $19.0 million in the second quarter of 2019. In the second quarter of 2020, the Casualty and Specialty segment generated a net claims and claim expense ratio of 66.7%, an underwriting expense ratio of 30.1% and a combined ratio of 96.8%, compared to 63.0%, 33.1% and 96.1%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2019. The increase in the net claims and claim expense ratio of 3.7 percentage points, was principally the result of higher current accident year attritional losses in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 from specialty lines of business. The underwriting expense ratio in the Casualty and Specialty segment decreased 3.0 percentage points, to 30.1%, in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019, driven by lower acquisition and operating expense ratios. Operating expenses were impacted by reduced travel, marketing and office operational expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19
The Company continues to evaluate industry trends and its own potential exposure associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and expects historically significant industry losses to emerge over time as the full impact of the pandemic and its effects on the global economy are realized. Among other things, the Company continues to actively monitor information received from or reported by clients, brokers, industry actuaries, regulators, courts, and others, and to assess that information in the context of its own portfolio. Our loss estimates represent our best estimate based on currently available information, and actual losses may vary materially from these estimates.
Other Items
The Company’s total investment result, which includes the sum of net investment income and net realized and unrealized gains on investments, was a gain of $537.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to a gain of $309.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of $227.9 million. The primary driver of the total investment result in the second quarter of 2020 was net realized and unrealized gains on investments of $448.4 million principally within the fixed maturity and equity investments trading portfolios.
Net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests in the second quarter of 2020 was $118.7 million, compared to $71.8 million in the second quarter of 2019. The increase was primarily driven by growth and improved performance of DaVinciRe Holdings Ltd., Medici and Vermeer.
In the second quarter of 2020, total fee income increased by $5.3 million, to $45.5 million, compared to $40.2 million in the second quarter of 2019, primarily driven by an increase in the dollar value of capital being managed, combined with the improved underlying performance of our joint ventures and managed capital vehicles.
In the second quarter of 2020, corporate expenses decreased by $11.9 million, to $11.9 million, compared to $23.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, primarily driven by $14.5 million of expenses incurred in connection with the acquisition of Tokio Millennium Re AG (now known as RenaissanceRe Europe AG), Tokio Millennium Re (UK) Limited (now known as RenaissanceRe (UK) Limited) and their subsidiaries (collectively, "TMR") during the second quarter of 2019 compared to $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2020.
Income tax expense was $29.9 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $9.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, principally driven by investment gains in our U.S.-based operations.
This Press Release includes certain financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”) including “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders,” “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted,” “operating return on average common equity - annualized,” “tangible book value per common share” and “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends.” A reconciliation of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures in accordance with Regulation G is presented in the attached supplemental financial data.
Please refer to the “Investors - Financial Reports - Financial Supplements” section of the Company’s website at www.renre.com for a copy of the Financial Supplement which includes additional information on the Company’s financial performance.

Comments on Regulation G
In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this Press Release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G. The Company has provided these financial measures in previous investor communications and the Company’s management believes that these measures are important to investors and other interested persons, and that investors and such other persons benefit from having a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and for comparison with other companies within the industry. These measures may not, however, be comparable to similarly titled measures used by companies outside of the insurance industry. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these non-GAAP measures in assessing the Company’s overall financial performance.
Operating Income Available to RenaissanceRe Common Shareholders and Operating Return on Average Common Equity - Annualized
The Company uses “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” as a measure to evaluate the underlying fundamentals of its operations and believes it to be a useful measure of its corporate performance. “Operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” as used herein differs from “net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders,” which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, by the exclusion of net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments, excluding other investments - catastrophe bonds, net foreign exchange gains and losses, transaction and integration expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR, the income tax expense or benefit associated with these adjustments and the portion of these adjustments attributable to the Company's redeemable noncontrolling interests." The Company’s management believes that “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” is useful to investors because it more accurately measures and predicts the Company’s results of operations by removing the variability arising from: fluctuations in the fair value of the Company’s fixed maturity investment portfolio, equity investments trading, other investments (excluding catastrophe bonds) and investments-related derivatives; fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; certain transaction and integration expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR; the associated income tax expense or benefit of these adjustments; and the portion of these adjustments attributable to the Company's redeemable noncontrolling interests. The Company also uses “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” to calculate “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted” and “operating return on average common equity - annualized.” The following table is a reconciliation of: (1) net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders to “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders”; (2) net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted to “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted”; and (3) return on average common equity - annualized to “operating return on average common equity - annualized.” Comparative information for all prior periods has been updated to conform to the current methodology and presentation.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share and Tangible Book Value Per Common Share Plus Accumulated Dividends
The Company has included in this Press Release “tangible book value per common share” and “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends.” “Tangible book value per common share” is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share. “Tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends” is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share, plus accumulated dividends. The Company’s management believes “tangible book value per common share” and “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends” are useful to investors because they provide a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of goodwill and intangible assets. The following table is a reconciliation of book value per common share to “tangible book value per common share” and “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends”.

RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd.
Basis of Presentation
RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. (the "Company" or "RenaissanceRe") is a global provider of reinsurance and insurance. The Company provides property, casualty and specialty reinsurance and certain insurance solutions to customers, principally through intermediaries. Established in 1993, the Company has offices in Bermuda, Australia, Ireland, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
On March 22, 2019, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary RenaissanceRe Specialty Holdings (UK) Limited completed its previously announced purchase of all the share capital of RenaissanceRe Europe AG (formerly known as Tokio Millennium Re AG), RenaissanceRe (UK) Limited (formerly known as Tokio Millennium Re (UK) Limited) and their subsidiaries (collectively, “TMR”). The three months ended June 30, 2019, was the first full period that reflected the results of TMR on the Company’s results of operations. This Financial Supplement should be read in that context.
This financial supplement includes certain financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S ("GAAP") including “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders,” “operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted,” “operating return on average common equity - annualized,” “tangible book value per common share,” “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends," "retained investment result" and "retained fixed maturity and short term investments, at fair value." A reconciliation of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures in accordance with Regulation G is presented in the attached supplemental financial data. See pages 20 through 24 for "Comments on Regulation G."
