American Independence Corp. Announces 2012 Fourth-Quarter And Annual Results

NEW YORK, March 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Independence Corp. (Nasdaq:AMIC) today reported 2012 fourth-quarter and annual results. This press release contains both GAAP and non-GAAP financial information for which reconciliations can be found at the end of this release.

Financial Results

Net income attributable to AMIC increased to $7.2 million ($.87 per share, diluted), for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to $0.5 million ($.06 per share, diluted), for the three months ended December 31, 2011. Due to our profitability in 2012 and projected continuing profitable results, AMIC's net income and operating income for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 were positively impacted by an increase of $5.9 million in the deferred tax asset related to our federal net operating loss carryforwards ("NOLs").

Revenues increased to $29.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to revenues of $21.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, primarily due to an increase in premiums.

Net income attributable to AMIC increased to $9.6 million ($1.16 per share, diluted), for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $2.5 million ($.29 per share, diluted), for the year ended December 31, 2011. Revenues increased to $101.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to revenues of $88.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2011, primarily due to an increase in premiums.

The Company's operating income 1 for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $1.5 million ($.19 per share, diluted), as compared to $0.7 million ($.08 per share, diluted) for the three months ended December 31, 2011. Operating income was $5.3 million ($.64 per share, diluted), for the year ended December 31, 2012, as compared to $3.5 million ($.41 per share, diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2011.

1 Operating income is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as net income attributable to AMIC excluding non-cash charges related to the amortization of certain intangible assets recorded in purchase accounting, net realized investment gains and losses, and the federal income tax charge and reduction of valuation allowance related to deferred tax asset. The Company believes that the presentation of operating income may offer a better understanding of the core operating results of the Company. A reconciliation of income from continuing operations to operating income is included in this press release.

Chief Executive Officer's Comments

Roy Thung, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We continue to experience growth and improved loss ratio results in our stop-loss line from business underwritten by IHC Risk Solutions. We are excited by the growth and returns on our pet line of business and our expansion into new lines of business, including non-subscriber occupational accident and international insurance, and our new direct-to-consumer tools and distribution platforms. Our financial condition and balance sheet remain strong. We have no debt and have grown our book value to $12.59 per share at December 31, 2012 from $11.36 per share at December 31, 2011."
