Primerica Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Primerica, Inc. (NYSE: PRI) announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Total revenues were $300.5 million in the second quarter of 2012 and net income was $46.2 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. Operating revenues increased by 8% to $296.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared with $273.1 million in the second quarter of 2011. Net operating income grew by 18% to $45.5 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012, compared with $38.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011. The year-over-year trends reflect strong performance in the Term Life segment and the impact of our share repurchases as well as higher prior year insurance and operating expenses. Net operating income return on adjusted stockholders’ equity (ROAE) was 14.8% (13.9% on a net income and stockholders’ equity basis) for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the highest since becoming a public company in 2010.

Rick Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “Our 18% increase in net operating income in the second quarter and share repurchases drove a 40% increase in net operating earnings per diluted share and increased net operating return on adjusted stockholders equity to 14.8% from 11.6% in the year ago period. Our simple products and disciplined approach to business enhancements and capital management will continue to provide opportunities for strong long-term results.”

John Addison, Chairman of Primerica Distribution and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “Sales force distribution development showed strength this quarter with the size of our life licensed sales force growing and our focus on licensing resulting in a 21% increase in new life insurance licenses. Our Investment and Savings Products sales also grew 5% in the second quarter as we continued to demonstrate the power of our large scale distribution model by producing over $100 million of fixed indexed annuity sales in the first full quarter the product was offered.”
