Operating income* of $122.3 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, increased three percent over last year’s $119.1 million, or $1.60 per diluted share.

Consolidated net premiums increased nine percent to $1,950.7 million from $1,788.7 million in the prior-year quarter, including an adverse effect of $45.8 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Investment income decreased three percent to $328.3 million from $337.4 million in the year-earlier quarter, primarily attributable to a $45.1 million decline in fair value of option contracts, which are included in funds withheld at interest and support the crediting rates for equity-indexed annuities. Partially offsetting the effect of those option contracts was an increase in investment income associated with a large fixed deferred annuity coinsurance agreement, effective April 1, 2012. Excluding the effect of both of those items, investment income was flat compared with the second quarter of 2011, with declining new money yields offsetting a growing invested asset base. Excluding funds withheld assets and the investment receivable associated with the newly executed annuity transaction, the average book value of invested assets was up approximately $1.1 billion to $18.6 billion, and the average portfolio yield decreased to 5.05 percent from 5.35 percent in the second quarter of 2011. The average yield was also 5.05 percent in the first quarter of 2012. Net foreign currency fluctuations adversely affected operating income by $2.3 million after taxes, or $0.03 per diluted share.
