MBIA Inc. (NYSE: MBI) today reported Adjusted Book Value (ABV) per share (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) of $35.51 as of September 30, 2011, compared with $37.22 as of June 30, 2011. Book value per share was $12.17 as of September 30, 2011.

MBIA Inc.’s adjusted pre-tax loss, a non-GAAP measure (defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures), for the third quarter of 2011 was $430 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $24 million for the third quarter of 2010. The reduction in ABV and the larger adjusted pre-tax loss for the three months ended September 30, 2011 relative to the comparable period of 2010 resulted from an increase in estimated losses on insured pools of commercial mortgage backed securities. ABV and adjusted pre-tax income provide investors with additional views of the Company’s operating results that management finds useful in measuring financial performance.

Net income available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2011 was $444 million, or $2.26 per share, compared with a net loss of $213 million, or $1.06 per share, for the third quarter of 2010. The Company’s results for the third quarter of 2011 were driven by a $776 million unrealized gain on insured credit derivatives associated with a reduced market perception of MBIA Insurance Corporation’s (MBIA Corp.) credit quality and commutations of insured exposures. The Company is required to adjust the values of its derivative liabilities for the market's perception of its non-performance risk. The decrease in the value of the derivative liabilities is reflected as a pre-tax gain on the income statement.

“So far, the risk reductions we sought in 2011 have been occurring,” said MBIA Inc. President and Chief Financial Officer Chuck Chaplin. “On a year-to-date basis, we have agreed to commute $23 billion of potentially volatile liabilities, primarily CMBS pools and ABS CDOs. This is greater than the amount commuted in all of 2010. In aggregate, the amounts paid or expected to be paid continue to be consistent with our loss reserves. These actions help stabilize MBIA Corp. for the future. In addition, we’ve made progress on the litigation front since the end of the second quarter, including by arguing the important issue of loss causation to the court in our lawsuit against Bank of America and Countrywide, and five more plaintiffs have opted out of the lawsuits challenging our Transformation.”

Year-to-Date Results

The net loss to common shareholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $693 million, or $3.50 per share, compared with a net loss of $398 million, or $1.96 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. Net losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and the nine months ended September 30, 2010 were impacted primarily by pre-tax net losses on the fair value of insured derivatives of $1.1 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively. The adjusted pre-tax loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $244 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $66 million in the comparable period of 2010; in each case the losses were driven by increased reserves and impairments on insured exposures. The adjusted pre-tax loss in the first nine months of 2011 increased relative to the comparable period of 2010 primarily due to lower insurance premiums and fees and increased net losses on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange, partially offset by lower reserves and impairments on insured exposures.

U.S. Public Finance Insurance Results

The Company’s U.S. public finance insurance business is primarily conducted through its National Public Finance Guarantee Corp. (National) subsidiary.

The U.S. public finance insurance segment recorded $157 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the third quarter of 2011 compared with $167 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the third quarter of 2010. The decline in adjusted pre-tax income resulted primarily from lower net gains on sales of securities associated with the ongoing management of National’s investment portfolio, partially offset by an increase in total premiums earned.

Total premiums earned in the U.S. public finance insurance segment were $147 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared with $100 million in total premiums earned in the third quarter of 2010. The increase in total premiums earned resulted from greater refunding activity in the third quarter of 2011 partially offset by lower scheduled earned premiums due to insured portfolio amortization.

Net investment income for the U.S. public finance insurance segment declined 10 percent to $53 million in the third quarter of 2011 from $59 million in the comparable period of 2010 primarily due to lower average yields.

The U.S. public finance insurance segment’s loss and loss adjustment expenses totaled $10 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared with $6 million in the third quarter of 2010.

Expenses associated with the amortization of deferred acquisition costs totaled $22 million in the third quarter of 2011, up 44 percent from $16 million in the third quarter of 2010 and in line with insured portfolio amortization.

Operating expenses were $19 million in the third quarter of 2011, up 7 percent from $17 million in the comparable period of 2010. The increase in operating expenses was driven by higher allocated overhead and compensation expenses, partially offset by lower facilities-related expenses.

As of September 30, 2011, National’s statutory capital was $2.6 billion and its claims-paying resources totaled $5.5 billion.

Structured Finance and International Insurance Results

The structured finance and international insurance business is primarily conducted through MBIA Corp. and its subsidiaries.

The structured finance and international insurance segment had an adjusted pre-tax loss of $556 million for the third quarter of 2011 compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $6 million for the third quarter of 2010. Premiums earned, net investment income, fees and reimbursements, and premiums and fees on insured derivatives totaled $151 million in the third quarter of 2011. Losses, credit impairments (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) and loss-related expenses on insured exposures totaled $631 million in the third quarter of 2011 while all other line items in the aggregate had a net $76 million negative impact on the adjusted pre-tax loss.

The following is a summary of all insured portfolio economic loss activity in the third quarter. Economic losses for a reporting period represent the change in the Company’s estimate of the present value of expected net future claims payments without regard to the manner in which they are presented in the Company’s financial statements.
3Q 2011 Economic Loss (Benefit)
Activity
      Second-Lien                
($ in millions)       RMBS     ABS CDOs     CMBS     Other*     Total

Total Economic Losses (Benefit)       $ 44     ($22)     $ 497     $ 112     $ 631

*includes first-lien RMBS

In the third quarter, the Company increased its expectations of future payments on second-lien RMBS exposures by $134 million, reflecting higher anticipated delinquencies within these transactions. However, the increase in expected future claims payments was partially offset by additional expected recoveries of $90 million primarily from contractual claims related to ineligible mortgage loans improperly included in the insured securitizations. The Company’s estimates for expected recoveries related to “putbacks” of ineligible mortgage loans totaled $2.8 billion as of September 30, 2011. However, based on its assessment of the strength of its contract claims, the Company continues to believe it is entitled to collect the full amount of its cumulative incurred losses, which totaled $4.6 billion as of September 30, 2011, from those securitization sponsors against whom it is pursuing litigation.

In the third quarter of 2011, the Company estimated $497 million of incremental economic losses on certain insured transactions backed by pools of commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS). The majority of the increase reflects the Company’s revised expectations for the costs of commuting such transactions. The balance was due to deterioration within some insured transactions during the quarter and an adjustment made to the Company’s loss expectations reflecting an increased probability of a recession. While loss severities on liquidated properties have trended lower from the highs seen a year ago, they remain in excess of historical norms, leading to deductible erosion in some of our insured transactions.

In the third quarter of 2011, the Company closed commutation agreements with four counterparties, three of which were announced in conjunction with the release of its second quarter 2011 financial results. The Company closed an additional commutation in the third quarter after the second quarter announcement. The total amount of insured exposure commuted in the third quarter was $8.5 billion, consisting of certain multi-sector CDO and investment grade corporate CDO transactions. After September 30, 2011, the Company agreed to commute transactions with additional counterparties. The transactions, comprising primarily commercial real estate, total $10.6 billion in insured exposure.

In the third quarter of 2011, the Company increased its expectations for incremental economic losses on certain first-lien RMBS transactions by $109 million, reflecting higher loss severities upon foreclosures within certain insured Alt-A mortgage loan securitizations.

Portions of the $631 million of total economic losses are on policies subject to insurance accounting while other amounts relate to losses on insured VIEs or insured credit derivatives for which GAAP specifies alternative accounting. The following is a summary of third quarter economic losses based on those categories:

Change in Insurance Recoveries (54)

In the third quarter of 2011, MBIA Corp. paid a total of $195 million in claims and LAE, net of reinsurance and collections, in connection with its second-lien RMBS exposures compared to $226 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $333 million in the third quarter of 2010.

The Company’s net derivative liability (the cumulative negative mark-to-market) with respect to insured credit derivatives was $4.9 billion as of September 30, 2011. The Company currently has approximately $2.0 billion in statutory loss reserves in connection with these insured credit derivatives. The Company expects the $2.9 billion unimpaired portion of the unrealized net loss in fair value (mark-to-market) to be reversed prior to or upon the maturities of the insured credit derivatives.

As of September 30, 2011, MBIA Corp.’s statutory balance sheet reflected $2.2 billion in cash and invested assets including $440 million of cash and short-term investments. Cash, short-term investments and other highly liquid investments available to meet liquidity demands totaled $824 million as of September 30, 2011, excluding amounts held by subsidiaries. Following the end of the third quarter, MBIA Corp. received an additional $300 million in cash from a partial repayment of its outstanding secured loan to the Asset Liability Management (ALM) business. The Company believes that MBIA Corp.’s liquidity resources will adequately provide for anticipated cash outflows.

MBIA Corp. had statutory capital of $2.6 billion and claims-paying resources totaling $3.9 billion at September 30, 2011.

Advisory Services

The Company’s Advisory Services business is primarily conducted in its Cutwater Asset Management subsidiaries. Cutwater recorded a pre-tax loss of $1 million in the third quarter of 2011 driven by expenses associated with positioning it for future growth.

Cutwater’s average assets under management in the third quarter were $38.5 billion, down 3 percent from $39.8 billion in the second quarter of 2011. Third-party average assets under management in the third quarter totaled $25.0 billion, down 2 percent from $25.5 billion in the second quarter of 2011.

Corporate Segment

The Corporate segment comprises MBIA Inc.’s holding company activities and certain subsidiaries, including Optinuity Alliance Resources Corp. The Corporate segment recorded a pre-tax loss of $21 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared with a pre-tax loss of $80 million in the third quarter of 2010. The Corporate segment’s results were impacted by an $8 million net gain on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange in the third quarter of 2011 and a $62 million net loss on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange in the third quarter of 2010 on outstanding warrants on MBIA Inc. common stock. The Corporate segment also recorded a $10 million net investment loss related to other than temporary impairments on investments in the third quarter of 2011.

As of September 30, 2011, the corporate activities of MBIA Inc. had $186 million of cash and highly liquid assets available for general corporate liquidity purposes.

The Company repurchased approximately 3.5 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $7.10 during the third quarter. As of September 30, 2011, approximately $23 million of repurchase authorization remained available under the Company's $1.0 billion share buyback program.

Wind-down Operations

The Company’s wind-down operations comprise its ALM and Conduit businesses, both of which are in run-off.

The Company’s wind-down operations recorded a pre-tax loss of $9 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared with a pre-tax loss of $104 million in the third quarter of 2010. The pre-tax loss in the third quarter of 2011 was driven by ongoing negative net interest spread in the ALM business. Negative marks-to-market and settlements on interest rate contracts in the third quarter of 2011 were offset by favorable changes in foreign exchange rates. The pre-tax loss in the third quarter of 2010 was driven by a $117 million net loss on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange resulting primarily from increased values of liabilities denominated in foreign currencies.

Due to deterioration in the market value and liquidity of its assets resulting from market volatility in the third quarter, the ALM business was required to use a portion of its free cash to support increased collateral requirements under market value-based intercompany lending facilities, derivative counterparty collateral support agreements and guaranteed investment contracts. Consequently, it requested and received an extension of its original $2.0 billion secured loan from MBIA Corp. which was scheduled to mature in November 2011. Under its revised terms, the secured loan now matures in the second quarter of 2012 and is subject to a maximum outstanding balance of $450 million. The secured loan had an outstanding balance of $600 million as of September 30, 2011, with additional payments after the end of the quarter resulting in a current outstanding balance of $300 million.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following are explanations of why MBIA believes that the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release, which serve to supplement GAAP information, are meaningful to investors.

Adjusted Book Value: Adjusted Book Value (ABV), a non-GAAP measure, is used by the Company to supplement its analysis of GAAP book value. The Company uses ABV as a measure of fundamental value and considers the change in ABV an important measure of periodic financial performance. ABV adjusts GAAP book value to remove the impact of certain items which the Company believes will reverse over time, as well as to add in the impact of certain items which the Company believes will be realized in GAAP book value in future periods. The Company has limited such adjustments to those items that it deems to be important to fundamental value and performance and which the likelihood and amount can be reasonably estimated. ABV assumes no new business activity. The Company has presented ABV to allow investors and analysts to evaluate the Company using the same measure that MBIA’s management regularly uses to measure financial performance. ABV is not a substitute for and should not be viewed in isolation from GAAP book value.

ABV is calculated on a consolidated basis and a segment basis. ABV by segment provides information about each segment’s contribution to consolidated ABV and is calculated using the same formula. ABV per share represents that amount of ABV allocated to each common share outstanding at the measurement date.

Adjusted Pre-tax Income: Adjusted pre-tax income, a non-GAAP measure, is used by the Company to supplement its analysis of GAAP pre-tax income. The Company uses adjusted pre-tax income as a measure of fundamental periodic financial performance. Adjusted pre-tax income adjusts GAAP pre-tax income to remove the effects of consolidating insured VIEs and gains and losses related to fair valuing insured credit derivatives, which the Company believes will reverse over time, and adds in changes in the present value of insurance claims the Company expects to pay on insured credit derivatives based on its ongoing insurance loss monitoring and loss adjustment expenses. Adjusted pre-tax income is not a substitute for and should not be viewed in isolation from GAAP pre-tax income and the Company’s definition of adjusted pre-tax income may differ from that used by other companies.

Claims-paying Resources (CPR): CPR is a key measure of the resources available to National and MBIA Corp. to pay claims under their respective insurance policies. CPR consists of total financial resources and reserves calculated on a statutory basis. CPR has been a common measure used by financial guarantee insurance companies to report and compare resources and continues to be used by MBIA’s management to evaluate changes in such resources. The Company has provided CPR to allow investors and analysts to evaluate National and MBIA Corp. using the same measure that MBIA’s management uses to evaluate their resources to pay claims under their respective insurance policies. There is no directly comparable GAAP measure.

Credit Impairments on Insured Derivatives: Credit impairments on insured derivatives represent actual payments for the period plus the present value of the Company’s estimate of expected future claim payments for such transactions, using a discount rate required by statutory accounting principles, plus loss adjustment expenses. Since the Company’s insured credit derivatives have similar terms, conditions, risks, and economic profiles to its financial guarantee insurance policies, the Company evaluates them for impairment periodically in the same way that it estimates loss and LAE for its financial guarantee insurance policies. Credit impairments on insured derivatives are equal to the Company’s statutory losses and loss adjustment expenses for such contracts.

Credit impairments on insured derivatives may differ from the fair values recorded in the Company’s financial statements. The Company expects that the majority of its exposure written in derivative form will not be settled at fair value. The fair value of an insured derivative contract will be influenced by a variety of market and transaction-specific factors that may be unrelated to potential future claim payments. In the absence of credit impairments or the termination of derivatives at losses, the cumulative unrealized losses recorded from fair valuing insured derivatives should reverse before or at the maturity of the contracts. Contracts also may be settled prior to maturity at amounts that may be more or less than their recorded fair values. Those settlements can result in realized gains or losses, and the reversal of unrealized losses. For these reasons, the Company believes its disclosure of credit impairments on insured derivatives provides additional meaningful information to investors about potential realized losses on these contracts.
