Employers Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Earnings And Declares First Quarter 2013 Dividend

Stocks in this article: EIG

Dirks continued: "In terms of the favorable adjustment to LPT-related reserves, we last booked a favorable adjustment to the LPT reserves in 2005, prior to our initial public offering. Recent claim patterns over several quarters indicated a favorable adjustment in the fourth quarter was warranted. The higher LPT contingent profit commission was also driven by these favorable LPT loss trends."

In closing, Dirks stated: “You may have noticed our new EMPLOYERS logo. I note with pleasure and pride that the year 2013 is a major milestone for EMPLOYERS. As of this year, with our history as the state fund, we have been doing business as a workers' compensation specialist for one hundred years. While we have only been a public company since early 2007, in that time and during one of the most challenging operating environments for our industry, we have succeeded in growing our adjusted book value (including the LPT Agreement deferred reinsurance gain) more than 75% since year-end 2006 and 6% in the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. We remain committed to providing long-term value to our shareholders and we look forward to continuing to provide high quality, competitively priced products to our policyholders for many more years to come."

Revision of Previously Issued Financial Statements

Please note that the information presented in this release has been restated for prior periods as a result of a revision to the manner in which we account for the contingent profit commission to which we are entitled under the LPT Agreement, which was a non-recurring transaction that does not affect our ongoing operations. This revision resulted in an increase to the contingent commission receivable–LPT Agreement on our consolidated balance sheets, which impacts the Deferred reinsurance gain–LPT Agreement (Deferred Gain) and is reflected in losses and LAE incurred in our consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income over the life of the contingent profit commission. Historically, any adjustment to the contingent profit commission was reflected in commission expense in the period that the estimate was revised. We assessed the impact of these revisions and concluded that they were not material to any of our financial statements for each of the three quarters within the nine months ended September 30, 2012, or fiscal years ended December 31, 2011, 2010, 2009, or 2008. As a result, we have not filed amendments to any of our previously filed Annual Reports on Form 10-K or Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Although the effect of these revisions was not material to those previously issued financial statements, the cumulative effect of reflecting these revisions in the current year would have been material for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012. Since these revisions are treated as corrections to our prior period financial results, the revisions are considered to be a restatement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Accordingly, the revised financial information included in this release and our Annual Report on Form 10-K has been identified as “restated.”
