Flagstone Re Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: FSR

In addition, as of June 30, 2012, we had liabilities associated with discontinued operations of $393.8 million, all associated with our Lloyd’s former reportable segment. Although we account for the business comprising our former Lloyd’s and Island Heritage reportable segments as discontinued operations, we owned the Island Heritage business until completing its sale on April 5, 2012, and we will continue to own the Lloyd’s business and be subject to the risks associated with that business until the Lloyd’s divestiture is complete.

Investment results

The total return on our investment portfolio, excluding noncontrolling interests in the investment portfolio, comprises investment income and realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, the total return on invested assets was 0.5% and 2.4%, respectively, compared to 0.3% and 1.3%, respectively for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

Net investment income

Net investment income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $3.9 million and $8.9 million, respectively, compared to $12.3 million and $21.5 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The decrease on the three months is primarily due to lower invested assets and the change in asset allocation during the quarter. The decrease on the six months is primarily due to lower investment assets, the change in asset allocation and lower interest rates during the period.

Net realized and unrealized gains and losses – investments

Net realized and unrealized gains on the Company’s portfolio amounted to $5.4 million and $23.5 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to losses of $7.9 million and gains of $2.9 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

These amounts comprise net realized and unrealized gains and losses on our fixed maturities, equities, other investments and investment portfolio derivatives which includes global equities, global bonds, commodity futures and "to be announced" mortgage-backed securities.
