Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Results

Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: TRH) today reported a net loss of ($57) million, or ($0.98) per common share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to net income of $142 million, or $2.22 per common share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2010. Net operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2011 was ($71) million, or ($1.21) per common share (diluted), compared to net operating income of $133 million, or $2.09 per common share (diluted), in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fourth quarter 2011 net loss and net operating loss include after-tax net catastrophe costs (net of reinsurance and net reinstatement premiums) of $110 million, which is net of tax benefits of $59 million. Such after-tax costs, as previously disclosed, consist principally of $72 million related to floods in Thailand and $33 million related to the February 2011 New Zealand earthquake. Fourth quarter 2010 net income and net operating income included after-tax net catastrophe costs of $7 million, which is net of related tax benefits of $16 million.

In addition, fourth quarter 2011 net loss and net operating loss include pre-tax merger-related costs of $75 million, which are included in “other expenses, net.” Of that amount, $67 million relates to a fee paid by TRH to Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG (NYSE: AWH) (“Allied World”), which represents the final amount due Allied World under the September 15, 2011 merger termination agreement. As most of these costs are not deductible, a minimal tax benefit of $4 million was recorded in the quarter for merger-related costs.

Michael C. Sapnar, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Despite the impact of one of the worst years on record for insured catastrophe costs globally and significant costs associated with our merger-related activities, our book value per share grew 3.4% in 2011, as we benefited from the performance of our non-catastrophe book as well as $261 million of share repurchase activity during the year.

“Overall as we look to 2012, we are comfortable with our risk profile, given the product and geographic diversity of our exposures. Rate trends in the just completed January 1 renewal season developed as expected. Capacity in most classes of business remains plentiful although underwriters are taking a more selective approach. Pricing for catastrophe-exposed accounts improved, driven by both loss activity and industry model changes. We expect this to be the trend globally throughout 2012. Furthermore, while reinsurance rates, terms and conditions for general and specialty casualty business were essentially unchanged this renewal season, various signals point to the emergence of an improving pricing environment for U.S. casualty insurance products. In the current environment, we continue to be disciplined and highly selective in managing our book, while remaining ready to leverage the insights and relationships of our locally-based underwriters across our global footprint.”

On November 20, 2011, Transatlantic entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Alleghany Corporation (NYSE: Y) (“Alleghany”) and Shoreline Merger Sub, Inc. (formerly Shoreline Merger Sub, LLC) (the “Alleghany Merger Agreement”), whereby Transatlantic will combine with Alleghany in a cash-and-stock transaction. Following completion of the transaction, Transatlantic will become an independent stand-alone subsidiary of Alleghany.

Mr. Sapnar added, “Transatlantic is a strong franchise with an exciting future. For customers, our product expertise, our global breadth and service capabilities and our financial strength make us a trusted partner. For stockholders, the combination of Transatlantic’s financial strength and market position with Alleghany’s leading U.S. specialty insurance platform and superior investment track record offers a compelling opportunity to share in the long-term value creation made possible through the merger, while enhancing Transatlantic’s ability to pursue its longer-term strategic objectives.”

Other highlights in the fourth quarter of 2011 include:
  • Net premiums written of $863 million, a decline of 4.0% from the prior year quarter, excluding the impact of foreign exchange.
  • Net investment income of $113 million, 6.6% less than the year ago period, largely as a result of a decline in income from other invested assets.
  • Combined ratio of 113.5%, which includes 17.6 percentage points related to net catastrophe costs. Such pre-tax net catastrophe costs totaled $169 million in the quarter, consisting principally of $110 million related to floods in Thailand and $51 million related to the February 2011 New Zealand earthquake. In the 2010 fourth quarter, pre-tax net catastrophe costs totaled $23 million, and added 2.5 percentage points to the combined ratio.
  • Net loss and loss adjustment expense reserves of $9.03 billion at quarter-end, an increase of $105 million (which is net of a decrease of $109 million due to foreign exchange) in the quarter.
  • Net operating cash inflows of $94 million, which include the impact of significant catastrophe and merger-related costs paid during the quarter, including the termination fee paid to Allied World.
  • Stockholders’ equity of $4.08 billion at quarter-end. During the quarter, TRH repurchased approximately 4.3 million of its outstanding common shares under its previously announced share repurchase program for $220 million. Pursuant to the merger agreement with Alleghany, share repurchases and dividend declarations were discontinued as of November 20, 2011.
  • Book value per common share of $71.15 at December 31, 2011, a 2.1% increase during the quarter.

For the full year of 2011, net loss totaled ($99) million, or ($1.62) per common share (diluted), compared to net income of $402 million, or $6.19 per common share (diluted), for 2010. Net operating loss for the full year of 2011 totaled ($156) million, or ($2.54) per common share (diluted), compared to net operating income of $383 million, or $5.89 per common share (diluted), in the same year ago period.

Results for the year 2011 included the following items:

  • Pre-tax net catastrophe costs of $852 million partially offset by related tax benefits of $298 million, compared to pre-tax net catastrophe costs of $202 million partially offset by related tax benefits of $71 million in 2010.
  • Net favorable loss reserve development related to prior accident years of $122 million, which is net of adverse development related to prior years' catastrophe events of $3 million. Net favorable development in 2010 totaled $57 million, which includes favorable development related to prior years’ catastrophe events of $4 million.
  • Pre-tax costs associated with merger-related activities of $138 million, included in “other expenses, net,” offset by a minimal tax benefit related to such costs of $6 million. Of such pre-tax costs, $115 million represents termination fees and expense reimbursements paid to Allied World.

The calculation of catastrophe cost estimates involves a significant amount of judgment and is based on information presently available. Such estimates are often heavily reliant on industry loss predictions, preliminary data from cedants, output from catastrophe modeling software and market share analysis. Due to the preliminary nature of information used to prepare these estimates, among other factors, the ultimate costs that TRH will incur related to these events may differ materially from these estimates.

On January 26, 2012, TRH reached an agreement with American International Group, Inc. (“AIG”) to settle a dispute, previously in arbitration, which arose as a result of losses claimed by TRH from its participation in a securities lending program administered and managed by AIG. The agreement calls for the parties to attempt to reach a mediated settlement involving the securities lending program, along with various other business issues that were not the subject of the arbitration proceedings. If a mediated settlement is not reached, the parties have agreed that the mediator will determine the amount of a settlement payment to TRH by June 1, 2012 with respect to the securities lending claims alone within a range between $45 million and $125 million. TRH will record the benefit resulting from this settlement when the final outcome is determined. The agreement settles all of the claims in the arbitration without any admission of liability by any party.

As announced on December 21, 2011, TRH stockholders of record at the close of business on Wednesday, January 4, 2012, are entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the special meeting of TRH stockholders being held to consider and vote upon the adoption of the previously announced Alleghany Merger Agreement. The special meeting will be held on Monday, February 6, 2012, at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, at The Down Town Association, 60 Pine Street, New York, New York. The merger is expected to close in the first quarter of 2012.

The performance of TRH is commonly assessed by analysts and others based on performance measures which are not defined under GAAP. Those measures include net operating income (loss) (“NOI”), NOI Per Common Share (diluted) and annualized operating return on equity (“Annualized Operating ROE”). NOI is defined as GAAP net income (loss) excluding realized net capital gains (losses) and the gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt, net of taxes. NOI Per Common Share (diluted) represents NOI divided by average common shares outstanding on a diluted basis. Annualized Operating ROE is defined as NOI divided by the average of beginning and ending stockholders’ equity, or for the three month periods, NOI divided by the average of beginning and ending stockholders' equity multiplied by four. In addition, GAAP annualized return on equity (“GAAP Annualized ROE”) is defined as GAAP net income (loss) divided by the average of beginning and ending stockholders’ equity, or for the three month periods, GAAP net income divided by the average of beginning and ending stockholders’ equity multiplied by four. TRH uses these measures in analyzing its performance as these measures focus on the core fundamentals of TRH’s operations. While TRH considers realized net capital gains (losses) and the gain (loss) on early extinguishment of debt as integral parts of its business and results, such items are not indicative of the core fundamentals of TRH’s operations. TRH believes these measures are of interest to the investment community because they provide additional meaningful methods of evaluating certain aspects of TRH’s operating performance from period to period on bases that are not otherwise apparent under GAAP. These non-GAAP measures, namely, NOI, NOI Per Common Share (diluted) and Annualized Operating ROE should not be viewed as substitutes for GAAP net income (loss), GAAP net income (loss) per common share on a diluted basis and GAAP Annualized ROE, respectively. Reconciliations of NOI, NOI Per Common Share (diluted) and Annualized Operating ROE to GAAP net income (loss), GAAP net income (loss) per common share on a diluted basis and GAAP Annualized ROE, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP measures, are included later in this press release.

TRH’s GAAP combined ratio and its components are presented in accordance with the methodology commonly used by insurance industry analysts and TRH’s peers. The property and casualty insurance and reinsurance industries use the combined ratio as a measure of underwriting profitability. The combined ratio represents the sum of the loss ratio and the underwriting expense ratio. The loss ratio represents net losses and loss adjustment expenses incurred expressed as a percentage of net premiums earned. The underwriting expense ratio represents the sum of the commission ratio and the other underwriting expense ratio. The commission ratio represents the sum of net commissions and the decrease (increase) in deferred policy acquisition costs expressed as a percentage of net premiums earned. The other underwriting expense ratio represents other underwriting expenses expressed as a percentage of net premiums earned.

Net loss and loss adjustment expense reserves represent unpaid losses and loss adjustment expenses net of related reinsurance recoverable, and are presented in accordance with principles prescribed or permitted by insurance regulatory authorities.

In addition, book value per common share is defined as stockholders’ equity divided by common shares outstanding.
