RenaissanceRe Reports Net Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders of $450.2 Million; Operating Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders of $414.5 Million in the Third Quarter of 2021

October 25, 2021
  • Hurricane Ida, severe flooding in Northwestern Europe, and aggregate losses associated with these and other events contributed to a $726.8 million net negative impact on net loss attributable to common shareholders.
  • Strong growth in gross premiums written of $631.1 million, or 55.2%, across both segments; included $254.9 million of reinstatement premiums associated with the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses in the Property segment, which accounted for approximately one-third of the overall growth.
  • Repurchased $223.8 million of common shares in the third quarter; aggregate of $704.5 million of common shares repurchased in the first three quarters of 2021; and an additional $75.3 million of common shares repurchased from October 1, 2021 through October 21, 2021.

PEMBROKE, Bermuda--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 25, 2021-- RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: RNR) (“RenaissanceRe” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Annualized Operating Return on Average Common Equity, Operating (Loss) Income (Attributable) Available to Common Shareholders, Operating (Loss) Income (Attributable) Available to Common Shareholders per Diluted Common Share and Change in Tangible Book Value per Common Share Plus Change in Accumulated Dividends are non-GAAP financial measures; see “Comments on Regulation G” for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures.

Kevin J. O’Donnell, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “This was another active season for natural catastrophes and while our results for the third quarter reflect this volatility, we have maintained a robust capital position and our business fundamentals remain strong. As we look forward to 2022, our fortress balance sheet provides us with great flexibility to create value for shareholders. We believe we will have ample capacity to renew existing risk and underwrite new opportunities if sufficiently profitable, but are equally motivated to return excess capital to shareholders at what we consider very attractive multiples.”

(3)

   

“Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses” includes Hurricane Ida, the European Floods, Other 2021 Catastrophe Events and the Aggregate Losses described above.

Estimates of net negative impact are based on a review of potential exposures, preliminary discussions with certain counterparties and actuarial modeling techniques. Actual net negative impact, both individually and in the aggregate, may vary from these estimates, perhaps materially. Changes in these estimates will be recorded in the period in which they occur.

Meaningful uncertainty remains regarding the estimates and the nature and extent of losses from catastrophe events, driven by the magnitude and recent nature of each event, the geographic areas impacted by the events, relatively limited claims data received to date, the contingent nature of business interruption and other exposures, potential uncertainties relating to reinsurance recoveries, and other factors inherent in loss estimation, among other things.

Three Drivers of Profit: Underwriting, Fee and Investment Income

  • Gross premiums written increased 80.9%, driven by:

$254.9 million (property catastrophe - $246.6 million, other property - $8.3 million) of reinstatement premiums associated with the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses, compared to $52.9 million (all within property catastrophe) of reinstatement premiums in the third quarter of 2020.

Growth in the other property class of business of $190.1 million, or 76.6%, principally as a result of rate improvements driving growth in new and existing business, notably within catastrophe exposed U.S. property excess and surplus lines.

Property catastrophe class of business gross premiums written increased by $155.8 million, or 86.7%, primarily due to the reinstatement premiums discussed above associated with the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses. Excluding the impact of the reinstatement premiums in each of the respective periods, gross premiums written in the property catastrophe class of business declined. The decline was largely driven by the non-recurrence of certain bespoke deals written in the third quarter of 2020, and movement in other reinstatement premiums, primarily related to favorable development on prior year losses in the third quarter of 2021.

  • Ceded premiums written were $92.6 million, an increase of $43.5 million, or 88.8%. This increase was primarily driven by ceded reinstatement premiums earned of $40.0 million from the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses.
  • The net claims and claim expense ratio for prior accident years reflected net favorable development of 28.3% for property catastrophe and 5.3% for other property in the quarter, primarily related to the 2017 to 2019 accident years.
  • Underwriting expense ratio decreased 4.2 percentage points, driven by an improvement of 2.7 percentage points in the acquisition expense ratio primarily from reinstatement premiums associated with the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses.
  • Underwriting loss of $681.9 million and a combined ratio of 183.5%, primarily driven by the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses which had a $1.0 billion net negative impact on the Property segment underwriting result and added 140.5 percentage points to the combined ratio.

  • Gross premiums written increased 39.9%, primarily driven by growth in the professional liability, general casualty and other specialty lines of business. This growth was principally driven by increases in new and existing business written in the current and prior periods, combined with rate improvements.
  • Net claims and claim expense ratio decreased 3.8 percentage points principally as a result of lower current accident year losses in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to the third quarter of 2020.

Included in the current accident year net claims and claim expense ratio is 3.5 percentage points related to the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses.

  • The underwriting expense ratio increased 3.5 percentage points driven by an increase in the net acquisition expense ratio, partially offset by a decrease in the operating expense ratio driven by improved operating leverage.

Increase of 4.0 percentage points in the net acquisition expense ratio principally due to reduced profit commissions in the Company’s mortgage guaranty book in the third quarter of 2020.

Fee Income: $28.3 million of fee income; impacted by weather-related large losses in 2021 and favorable development on prior year events

Performance fees are based on the performance of the individual vehicles or products, and may be negative in a particular period if, for example, large losses occur, which can potentially result in no performance fees or the reversal of previously accrued performance fees.

  • Total fee income increased $10.0 million due to higher performance fee income in the third quarter of 2021, partially offset by lower management fee income.

Lower management fee income in the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to a deferral of management fees related to DaVinciRe Holdings Ltd. as a result of the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses.

Higher performance fee income in the third quarter of 2021 resulted from favorable development on prior year events and a lower amount of performance fees available to be reversed in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to the third quarter of 2020.

  • Total investment result decreased $271.6 million, when compared to the third quarter of 2020, due to the difference in net realized and unrealized (losses) gains on investments, principally within the fixed maturity and equity investments portfolios.

Net realized and unrealized losses in the third quarter of 2021 were driven by increasing yields on medium to longer duration U.S. treasuries, an increase in credit spreads in certain fixed maturity investments, and net realized and unrealized losses in equity investments principally in the Company’s strategic investment portfolio.

Net realized and unrealized gains in the third quarter of 2020 were favorably impacted by the recovery in the financial markets following the disruption associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Managed fixed maturity and short-term investment weighted average yield to maturity was 1.1% and average duration was 3.0 years on total consolidated fixed maturity and short-term investments at fair value of $18.5 billion at September 30, 2021.

Other Items of Note

  • Net loss attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests was $198.5 million compared to net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests of $19.3 million in the third quarter of 2020, reflecting the impact of the Q3 2021 Weather-Related Large Losses across the Company’s consolidated joint ventures and managed funds in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Income tax benefit of $23.6 million compared to $8.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase in income tax benefit is primarily driven by underwriting losses in the Company’s taxable jurisdictions and unrealized investment losses in the Company’s U.S. based operations.
  • Net foreign exchange losses of $4.8 million compared to a $17.4 million net foreign exchange gain in the third quarter of 2020. The net foreign exchange loss is primarily driven by losses attributable to third-party investors in RenaissanceRe Medici Fund Ltd. and miscellaneous foreign exchange losses generated by underwriting activities.
  • Corporate expenses decreased $37.9 million to $10.2 million, primarily due to the loss on sale of RenaissanceRe UK recorded in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Raised gross proceeds of $500.0 million in July 2021 through the issuance of 20,000,000 Depositary Shares, each of which represents a 1/1,000th interest in a share of the Company’s 4.20% Series G Preference Shares, $1.00 par value and $25,000 liquidation preference per share (equivalent to $25.00 per Depositary Share).
  • Redeemed all 11,000,000 outstanding 5.375% Series E Preference Shares on August 11, 2021 for $275.0 million plus accrued and unpaid dividends thereon.

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 (Loss) Income (Attributable) Available to RenaissanceRe Common Shareholders and Operating Return on Average Common Equity - Annualized

The Company uses “operating (loss) income (attributable) 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 (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” as used herein differs from “net (loss) income attributable 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, corporate expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR and the subsequent sale of RenaissanceRe (UK) Limited (“RenaissanceRe UK”), 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 (loss) income (attributable) 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; corporate expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR and the subsequent sale of RenaissanceRe UK; 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 (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” to calculate “operating (loss) income (attributable) 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 (loss) income attributable to RenaissanceRe common shareholders to “operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders”; (2) net (loss) income attributable to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted to “operating (loss) income (attributable) 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.”
