GALVESTON, Texas, Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American National Insurance Company (Nasdaq:ANAT) announced third quarter 2013 net income of $82,613,000 ($3.07 per diluted share) compared to net income of $59,186,000 ($2.20 per diluted share) for the same period in 2012. A 7.0% increase in operating earnings and higher realized investment gains both contributed to the increase in net income.

Third quarter after tax operating income, which excludes after tax net realized investment gains, increased to $54,349,000 ($2.02 per diluted share), as compared with $50,782,000 ($1.89 per diluted share) for the same period in 2012. After tax net realized investment gains were $28,264,000 ($1.05 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $8,404,000 ($0.31 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2012.

After-tax operating earnings for the first nine months of 2013, which exclude after tax net realized investment gains, were $133,172,000 ($4.95 per diluted share) compared to $108,802,000 ($4.05 per diluted share) for the same period in 2012. Operations for the period benefited from investment income relating to prepayment of mortgage loan investments and the disposition of certain investment real estate.  After tax net realized investment gains totaled $67,581,000 ($2.51 per diluted share) for the first nine months of 2013 compared with after tax net realized investment gains of $16,106,000 ($0.60 per diluted share) for the same period in 2012.

Recurring life insurance premiums on new issues were up 36.0% over the prior year. Stockholders' Equity as of September 30, 2013 increased 4.8% from the end of 2012 to $4.0 billion.  Book value per share was $149.15 at September 30, 2013 as compared to $142.63 per share at December 31, 2012. Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 increased 3.2% compared to the same period in 2012, primarily as a result of a higher level of realized gains on investments.
