MBIA Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

MBIA Inc. (NYSE: MBI) (the Company) today reported Adjusted Book Value (ABV) per share (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) of $28.68 per share at September 30, 2013 compared with $30.68 per share at December 31, 2012. Book Value (BV) per share was $16.54 as of September 30, 2013, compared to $16.22 as of December 31, 2012.

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 2013 was $188 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $118 million for the third quarter of 2012. The greater adjusted pre-tax loss for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period of 2012 was driven primarily by decreases in premiums earned and net investment income, an increase in impairments on insured credit derivatives, loss and loss adjustment expenses (LAE) related to a gaming revenue transaction, and an impairment charge on the Company’s headquarters building, partially offset by decreases in other insurance losses and LAE. ABV and adjusted pre-tax income (loss) provide investors with alternative views of the Company’s operating results that management finds useful in measuring financial performance. Reconciliations of ABV to BV calculated in accordance with GAAP and adjusted pre-tax income (loss) to pre-tax income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP are attached.

The Company recorded consolidated net income of $132 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013 compared with consolidated net income of $7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. Consolidated total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2013 included $257 million of net gains on the fair value of insured derivatives compared with $21 million of net losses for the same period of 2012. The net gains on the fair value of insured derivatives in 2013 were principally the result of the effects of improvements in the value of underlying reference obligations and shorter transaction lives combined with the effects of an unfavorable change in the market’s perception of MBIA Insurance Corporation’s (MBIA Corp.’s) nonperformance risk on its insured credit derivatives. The net losses on the fair value of insured derivatives in 2012 were principally due to the effects of unfavorable changes in spreads and pricing of underlying reference obligations and erosion of subordination, partially offset by the effects of unfavorable changes in the market perception of MBIA Corp.’s nonperformance risk on its insured credit derivatives. The Company is required to adjust the values of its insured credit derivatives for the market's perception of its nonperformance risk. A decrease in the value of the insured credit derivatives attributable to an increase in nonperformance risk is reflected as an unrealized gain, while an increase in the value of the insured credit derivatives attributable to a decline in nonperformance risk is reflected as an unrealized loss in the income statement. Consolidated total expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2013 included $98 million of net insurance loss and loss adjustment expenses compared with $171 million for the same period of 2012. The decrease in net insurance loss and loss adjustment expenses in 2013 when compared to 2012 was principally the result of lower increases in expected payments related to CMBS and first-lien RMBS transactions, partially offset by an increase in losses related to a gaming revenue transaction.

“Our third quarter financial results were disappointing,” said MBIA Inc. President and Chief Financial Officer Chuck Chaplin. “We recorded increased losses on our insured CMBS exposures and took a partial write-down against our insured second lien RMBS loss recoverable. We also had some large expenses, including a $29 million impairment to the value of our headquarters property, a $44 million loss related to a salvage asset that we settled by receiving a marketable security and $14 million in expenses related to a reduction in our workforce. On the revenue side, we saw a slowdown in our always unpredictable refunding premiums earned as interest rates spiked.”

“However, after years of high loss activity and litigation we’re getting much closer to resuming more normal operations,” Mr. Chaplin continued. “We’ve begun to reposition National’s investment portfolio from its nearly 40 percent cash position at June 30, and we continue to make good progress in our discussions with the rating agencies regarding National’s rating. Early in the fourth quarter, National paid its first dividend to MBIA Inc. of $214 million. Over the next few months, we anticipate the beginning of a new period of growth and stability for our shareholders.”

Year-to-Date Results

The Company’s consolidated adjusted pre-tax loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $368 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $818 million in the comparable period of 2012. The reduction in the adjusted pre-tax loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was primarily due to a decrease in insurance losses and LAE, the absence of net investment losses related to other-than-temporary impairments, net gains from the sale of investments and a decrease in interest expense. These changes were partially offset by lower premiums earned and lower net investment income.

The Company recorded consolidated net income of $118 million, or $0.60 per diluted common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared with consolidated net income of $598 million, or $3.07 per diluted common share, for the same period of 2012. Consolidated total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 included $14 million of net gains on the fair value of insured derivatives compared with $1.1 billion of net gains for the same period of 2012. The net gains on the fair value of insured derivatives in 2013 were principally the result of commuting insured credit derivatives at prices below their fair values and changes in the weighted average life on transactions, partially offset by the effects of favorable changes in the market’s perception of MBIA Corp.’s nonperformance risk on its insured credit derivatives. The net gains on the fair value of insured derivatives in 2012 were principally the result of commuting insured credit derivatives at prices below their fair values and the effects of an unfavorable change in the market’s perception of MBIA’s Corp.’s nonperformance risk on its insured credit derivatives. Consolidated total expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 included $92 million of net insurance loss and loss adjustment expenses compared with $330 million for the same period of 2012. The decrease in net insurance loss and loss adjustment expenses in 2013 when compared to 2012 was principally related to decreases in actual and expected payments related to insured second-lien and first-lien RMBS transactions, partially offset by an increase in losses related to an international road transaction and certain U.S. public finance transactions. In addition, consolidated total expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 included operating expenses of approximately $2 million and $89 million, respectively, related to settlement, consulting and legal expenses associated with the resolution of litigation matters with Bank of America, Société Générale and Flagstar Bank.

U.S. Public Finance Insurance Results

The Company’s U.S. public finance insurance business is primarily conducted through its National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation (National) subsidiary. The U.S. public finance insurance segment recorded $6 million of pre-tax income in the third quarter of 2013 compared with $164 million of pre-tax income in the third quarter of 2012. The decline in pre-tax income in the third quarter of 2013 compared with the same period of 2012 was driven by a decline in total premiums earned due to lower market refunding activity, lower net investment income due to lower average yields on the investment portfolio following the repayment of the secured loan that National had extended to MBIA Corp., an impairment charge in the third quarter of 2013 related to the Company’s headquarters facility, and a loss related to the difference in the value of the salvage receivable recorded and the fair market value of the marketable securities received in connection with the restructuring of a remedial credit related to a gaming revenue transaction.

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 $167 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $224 million for the third quarter of 2012. The adjusted pre-tax loss declined principally due to lower losses on insured exposures and lower interest expense resulting from the repayment in full of the National Secured Loan in May of 2013.

The structured finance and international insurance segment had pre-tax income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) of $196 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared with a pre-tax loss of $164 million in the third quarter of 2012. Pre-tax income improved primarily due to net gains on the fair value of insured derivatives in the third quarter of 2013 compared with net losses for the same period of 2012, decreases in financial guarantee insurance losses and the absence of interest expense on the National Secured Loan, which was repaid in full in May of 2013.

The following is a summary of MBIA Corp.’s insured portfolio economic loss (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) activity in the third quarter:

Losses, credit impairments and loss-related expenses on insured exposures totaled $163 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared with $252 million in the third quarter of 2012.

As of September 30, 2013, MBIA Corp.’s statutory balance sheet reflected $611 million in cash and invested assets. Cash, short-term investments and other highly liquid investments available to meet liquidity demands, excluding amounts held by subsidiaries, totaled $97 million. The Company believes MBIA Corp.’s current liquidity position, together with future cash inflows and amounts available under its loan agreement with Blue Ridge Investments, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Bank of America, is adequate to make expected future claim payments. As of September 30, 2013, there was a $50 million outstanding balance under the loan agreement.

MBIA Corp. had statutory capital of $1.0 billion and claims-paying resources totaling $3.5 billion at September 30, 2013.

Advisory Services

The Company’s Advisory Services business is primarily conducted in its Cutwater Asset Management and Trifinium Advisors (UK) Limited subsidiaries. The Advisory Services segment recorded a pre-tax loss of $8 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared with a pre-tax loss of $2 million in the third quarter of 2012. The larger pre-tax loss in the third quarter of 2013 compared with the same period of 2012 was driven by lower fees due to declines in assets under management and increases in legal costs, compensation expense and consulting fees.

MBIA Inc. Holding Company

MBIA Inc. contains the Corporate segment and Wind-down Operations. General corporate activities are conducted through the Corporate segment. The Company’s corporate operations primarily consist of holding company activities, including its service company, Optinuity Alliance Resources Corporation. The Company’s Wind-down Operations comprise its ALM and Conduit segments, both of which are in run-off.

The Corporate segment recorded pre-tax income of $36 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared with pre-tax income of $22 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase in the Corporate segment's pre-tax income was primarily driven by decreases in the fair value of outstanding warrants issued on MBIA Inc. common stock, partially offset by a reduction in fees from affiliates. The fees for affiliate services may vary significantly from period to period.

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. (Warburg Pincus) to be elected to the Board of Directors pursuant to the amended and restated Investment Agreement dated as of February 6, 2008 between MBIA Inc. and Warburg Pincus. Under the Investment Agreement, David A. Coulter, Warburg Pincus’s remaining member of the Board of Directors, has the right to designate Mr. Lee’s replacement on the Board of Directors, and the Board of Directors is required to use its reasonable best efforts to take all action required to fill the vacancy resulting from Mr. Lee’s resignation with Mr. Coulter’s designee.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following are explanations of why the Company 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 (Loss): Adjusted pre-tax income (loss), a non-GAAP measure, is used by the Company to supplement its analysis of GAAP pre-tax income (loss). The Company uses adjusted pre-tax income (loss) as a measure of fundamental periodic financial performance. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) adjusts GAAP pre-tax income (loss) 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 (loss) is not a substitute for and should not be viewed in isolation from GAAP pre-tax income (loss) and the Company’s definition of adjusted pre-tax income (loss) 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 net payments for the period plus the present value of the Company’s estimate of expected future net 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 loss adjustment expenses 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.

Economic Losses: Economic losses for a reporting period represent the change in the discounted values of net payments without regard to the manner in which they are presented in the Company’s financial statements. Economic losses are calculated in accordance with GAAP, with the exception of those related to insured credit derivative impairments. The amounts reported for insured credit derivative impairments are calculated in accordance with U.S. STAT because GAAP does not contain a comparable measurement basis for these contracts. Losses and recoverables on VIEs that are eliminated in consolidation are included because the consolidation of these VIEs does not impact whether or not the Company will be required to make payments under insurance contracts. As a result of the different accounting bases of amounts, the total economic losses represent a non-GAAP measure.
