MBIA Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

MBIA Inc. (NYSE: MBI) today reported Adjusted Book Value (ABV) per share (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) of $35.51 as of September 30, 2011, compared with $37.22 as of June 30, 2011. Book value per share was $12.17 as of September 30, 2011.

MBIA Inc.’s adjusted pre-tax loss, a non-GAAP measure (defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures), for the third quarter of 2011 was $430 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $24 million for the third quarter of 2010. The reduction in ABV and the larger adjusted pre-tax loss for the three months ended September 30, 2011 relative to the comparable period of 2010 resulted from an increase in estimated losses on insured pools of commercial mortgage backed securities. ABV and adjusted pre-tax income provide investors with additional views of the Company’s operating results that management finds useful in measuring financial performance.

Net income available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2011 was $444 million, or $2.26 per share, compared with a net loss of $213 million, or $1.06 per share, for the third quarter of 2010. The Company’s results for the third quarter of 2011 were driven by a $776 million unrealized gain on insured credit derivatives associated with a reduced market perception of MBIA Insurance Corporation’s (MBIA Corp.) credit quality and commutations of insured exposures. The Company is required to adjust the values of its derivative liabilities for the market's perception of its non-performance risk. The decrease in the value of the derivative liabilities is reflected as a pre-tax gain on the income statement.

“So far, the risk reductions we sought in 2011 have been occurring,” said MBIA Inc. President and Chief Financial Officer Chuck Chaplin. “On a year-to-date basis, we have agreed to commute $23 billion of potentially volatile liabilities, primarily CMBS pools and ABS CDOs. This is greater than the amount commuted in all of 2010. In aggregate, the amounts paid or expected to be paid continue to be consistent with our loss reserves. These actions help stabilize MBIA Corp. for the future. In addition, we’ve made progress on the litigation front since the end of the second quarter, including by arguing the important issue of loss causation to the court in our lawsuit against Bank of America and Countrywide, and five more plaintiffs have opted out of the lawsuits challenging our Transformation.”
