MBIA Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

In the third quarter of 2011, MBIA Corp. paid a total of $195 million in claims and LAE, net of reinsurance and collections, in connection with its second-lien RMBS exposures compared to $226 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $333 million in the third quarter of 2010.

The Company’s net derivative liability (the cumulative negative mark-to-market) with respect to insured credit derivatives was $4.9 billion as of September 30, 2011. The Company currently has approximately $2.0 billion in statutory loss reserves in connection with these insured credit derivatives. The Company expects the $2.9 billion unimpaired portion of the unrealized net loss in fair value (mark-to-market) to be reversed prior to or upon the maturities of the insured credit derivatives.

As of September 30, 2011, MBIA Corp.’s statutory balance sheet reflected $2.2 billion in cash and invested assets including $440 million of cash and short-term investments. Cash, short-term investments and other highly liquid investments available to meet liquidity demands totaled $824 million as of September 30, 2011, excluding amounts held by subsidiaries. Following the end of the third quarter, MBIA Corp. received an additional $300 million in cash from a partial repayment of its outstanding secured loan to the Asset Liability Management (ALM) business. The Company believes that MBIA Corp.’s liquidity resources will adequately provide for anticipated cash outflows.

MBIA Corp. had statutory capital of $2.6 billion and claims-paying resources totaling $3.9 billion at September 30, 2011.

Advisory Services

The Company’s Advisory Services business is primarily conducted in its Cutwater Asset Management subsidiaries. Cutwater recorded a pre-tax loss of $1 million in the third quarter of 2011 driven by expenses associated with positioning it for future growth.

Cutwater’s average assets under management in the third quarter were $38.5 billion, down 3 percent from $39.8 billion in the second quarter of 2011. Third-party average assets under management in the third quarter totaled $25.0 billion, down 2 percent from $25.5 billion in the second quarter of 2011.
