Fortegra Financial Corporation (the "Company") (NYSE: FRF) an insurance services company providing distribution and administration services and insurance-related products, today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

"Our fourth quarter and full year 2010 results reflect solid operational performance across all business lines coupled with organic growth and the successful integration of our 2010 acquisitions. With our recent IPO we have improved our financial strength and flexibility and have multiple points of access to capital to allow us to both grow our existing businesses and pursue accretive acquisitions," said Richard S. Kahlbaugh, Chairman and CEO of Fortegra.

Fourth Quarter 2010 Results

Gross revenues increased 5.4% to $50.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $47.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Net revenues, (revenues net of losses, loss adjustments, and commission expenses), decreased 2.9% to $23.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $24.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Net income was $4.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 compared to $5.0 million, or $0.29, for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5.6% to $10.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $10.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Net earned premium revenues increased 10.2% to $28.4 million from $25.8 million for the comparable quarter last year, driven by growth in net written premium from new customers distributing Fortegra's credit insurance and warranty products.

Wholesale brokerage commission and fee revenues increased 4.8% to $5.5 million compared to $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Ceding commission revenue earned under coinsurance agreements increased 8.6% to $6.3 million from $5.8 million for comparable quarter last year, driven principally by increased credit insurance premium production, favorable loss experience across the lines reinsured and realized gains on the sale of investment portfolio assets.

Net investment income increased to $1.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, due to an increase in invested assets.

Service and administrative fee revenues decreased 5.7% to $8.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 from $8.6 million for the comparable quarter last year, primarily due to (i) lower volumes of new credit cards issued and higher credit card cancellations during the fourth quarter 2010 and (ii) processing a large volume of claims due to the initiation of claims handling for an existing program during the fourth quarter 2009 resulting in lower level of processing fees in the corresponding quarter of 2010. These decreases were offset, in part, by increased revenue from three acquisitions completed over the past year.

Fiscal Year 2010 Results

Gross revenues increased 9.8% to $204.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2010 compared to $186.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2009. Net revenues, (revenues, net of losses, loss adjustments, and commission expenses), increased 17.0% to $97.3 million compared to $83.1 million in 2009. Net income was $16.2 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, for the full year 2010 compared to $11.6 million, or $0.69, for the full year 2009. Adjusted EBITDA increased 27.4% to $40.1 million compared to $31.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2009.

Service and administrative fees increased 7.3% to $34.1 million from $31.8 million in 2009. Wholesale brokerage commission and fee income increased 51.0% to $24.6 million compared to $16.3 million last year. Ceding commissions increased 19.5% to $28.8 million from $24.1 million in 2009. Net investment income for the full year 2010 decreased 14.4% to $4.1 million compared to $4.8 million in 2009. Net earned premiums increased 3.4% to $111.8 million for the full year 2010 from $108.1 million for 2009.

Segment Results

Payment Protection

Revenues for the Payment Protection segment increased 11.9% to $14.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $12.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase was driven principally by the acquisitions of Continental Car Club and United Motor Club during 2010, which contributed $1.8 million in revenues during the fourth quarter. Income before taxes for the Payment Protection segment decreased 5.0% to $5.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $5.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 due to increased commission expense and an increase in loss experience in our warranty channel in the fourth quarter of 2010.

For the full year ended December 31, 2010, revenues in the Payment Protection segment increased 18.7% to $50.8 million and income before taxes increased 69.1% to $17.7 million.

BPO

Revenues for the BPO segment decreased 37.8% to $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $6.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily due to lower volumes of new credit cards issued and higher credit card cancellations and to processing a large volume of claims due to the initiation of claims handling for an existing program during the fourth quarter 2009 resulting in lower level of processing fees in the corresponding quarter in 2010. Income before taxes for the BPO segment decreased 50.5% to $1.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $2.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

For the full year ended December 31, 2010, revenues in the BPO segment decreased 11.0% to $20.9 million and total income before taxes decreased 28.9% to $6.2 million.

Wholesale Brokerage

Revenues for the Wholesale Brokerage segment increased 4.1% to $5.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $5.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase was driven by premium revenue production during the fourth quarter and the acquisition of South Bay Acceptance Corporation in February 2010. Loss before taxes for the Wholesale Brokerage segment was $0.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to operating income of $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

For the full year ended December 31, 2010, revenues in the Wholesale Brokerage segment increased 51.6% to $25.5 million and income before taxes increased 45.5% to $3.1 million.

Capital Markets Activities

On December 16, 2010, Fortegra completed its initial public offering raising $43.6 million net of underwriting fees. Proceeds of the offering were used to retire $20.0 million of subordinated debt plus accrued interest of $0.6 million, pay $14.1 million in conversion costs to holders of class A common shares, and pay down the revolving line of credit by $8.9 million.

Balance Sheet

Total invested assets and cash were $148.0 million as of December 31, 2010 compared to $132.4 million as of December 31, 2009. Cash and cash equivalents increased $13.4 million to $43.4 million from $29.9 million as of the comparable period last year. Unearned premiums were $210.4 million compared to $215.7 million as of December 31, 2009. Stockholder's equity increased by $43.1 million to $123.9 million as of December 31, 2010 compared to $80.8 million as of December 31, 2009.

Outlook

Based on management's operating assumptions and including the two acquisitions announced to date in 2011, Fortegra is providing the following outlook for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2011:
  • Net revenues in the range of $106 to $111 million
  • Diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.88 to $0.97 based on a weighted fully diluted share count of 21.6 million shares
  • Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $47 to $50 million

We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in this Earning Release to provide investors with a supplemental measure of our operating performance and, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, information utilized in the calculation of the financial covenants under our revolving credit facility and in the determination of compensation. EBITDA, as used in this Earnings Release is defined as net income before interest expense, income taxes, non-controlling interest and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA differs from the term "EBITDA" as it is commonly used. Adjusted EBITDA, as used in this Earnings Release, means "Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA" as that term is defined under our revolving credit facility, which is generally consolidated net income before consolidated interest expense, consolidated amortization expense, consolidated depreciation expense and consolidated tax expense, in each case as defined more fully in the agreement governing our revolving credit facility. The other items excluded in this calculation include, but are not limited to, specified acquisition costs and unusual or non-recurring charges. The calculation below does not give effect to certain additional adjustments that are permitted under our revolving credit facility which, if included, would increase the amount reflected in this table.

We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in industries similar to ours. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by management to measure operating performance and by investors to measure a company's ability to service its debt and other cash needs. Management believes the inclusion of the adjustments to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain material non-cash items and about unusual items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or U.S. GAAP. Accordingly, they should not be used as an indicator of, or alternative to, net income as a measure of operating performance. Although we use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the operating performance of our business, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have significant limitations as analytical tools because they exclude certain material costs. For example, they do not include interest expense, which has been a necessary element of our costs. Since we use capital assets, depreciation expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate service revenues. In addition, the omission of the substantial amortization expense associated with our intangible assets further limits the usefulness of this measure. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA also do not include the payment of taxes, which is also a necessary element of our operations. Because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not account for these expenses, its utility as a measure of our operating performance has material limitations. Due to these limitations, management does not view EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a primary performance measure and also uses other measures, such as net income. Because the definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (or similar measures) may vary among companies and industries, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods presented:
