MBIA Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: MBI

The Company’s Wind-down Operations recorded a pre-tax loss of $54 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared with a pre-tax loss of $77 million in the third quarter of 2012. The favorable change in the pre-tax loss in the third quarter of 2013 compared with the third quarter of 2012 was driven by lower operating expenses of consolidated VIEs, lower net losses on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange and net gains on the extinguishment of debt in 2013. The lower operating expenses of consolidated VIEs resulted from lower fees paid to the Corporate segment. The lower net losses on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange resulted from derivative gains in 2013 compared with losses in 2012 and losses on the change in market value of investments in 2012, partially offset by a decline in gains related to the sale of investments and higher foreign exchange losses. These positive changes were partially offset by the absence of net gains on the extinguishment of VIE debt in the third quarter of 2013, compared with $16 million of such gains in the third quarter of 2012.

As of September 30, 2013, MBIA Inc. had liquidity of $282 million comprising cash and liquid assets of $228 million held in the Corporate segment available for general corporate liquidity purposes, excluding the amounts held in escrow under its tax sharing agreement, and $54 million not pledged directly as collateral held in the asset/liability products segment. MBIA Inc. seeks to maintain sufficient liquidity and capital resources to meet its general corporate needs as well as the needs of the asset/liability products operations.

After the end of the third quarter, National declared and paid a dividend of $214 million to its ultimate parent, MBIA Inc.

On November 11, 2013 Kewsong Lee resigned from the Board of Directors of MBIA Inc. Mr. Lee was elected to the Board of Directors in January 2008. Mr. Lee was nominated by Warburg Pincus Private Equity X, L.P.
