Net Income per Share for 2013 Is a Record $9.04; Operating Income per Share Is a Record $8.03; Combined Ratio Is 86.1%

Company Expects 2014 Operating Income per Share In Range of $7.10 to $7.40 Including Assumed 5 Point Impact of Catastrophes

WARREN, N.J., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chubb Corporation [NYSE: CB] today reported net income in the fourth quarter of 2013 of $569 million or $2.24 per share, compared to $102 million or $0.38 per share in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Operating income was $526 million or $2.07 per share in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $44 million or $0.16 per share in the corresponding quarter of 2012. The company defines operating income as net income excluding after-tax realized investment gains and losses. 

Results for the fourth quarter of 2012 were adversely affected by Storm Sandy-related losses net of reinsurance recoverable as well as reinsurance reinstatement premiums.

Net written premiums for the fourth quarter increased 4% to $3.0 billion in 2013 from $2.9 billion in 2012.  Premiums were up 7% in the U.S. and down 3% outside the U.S. (up 1% in local currencies).  The negative 1% effect of foreign currency translation on fourth quarter premium growth was offset by the impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums related to Storm Sandy, which reduced net written premiums in the year-ago fourth quarter.

The fourth quarter combined loss and expense ratio was 85.5% in 2013 and 111.2% in 2012.  The impact of catastrophes on the fourth quarter combined ratio was 2.1 percentage points in 2013 and 29.7 points in 2012.  Excluding the impact of catastrophes, the fourth quarter combined ratio was 83.4% in 2013 and 81.5% in 2012.

The expense ratio for the fourth quarter was 30.8% in 2013 and 30.9% in 2012.

Property and casualty investment income after taxes for the fourth quarter declined 4% to $284 million in 2013 from $296 million in 2012.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 included net realized investment gains of $67 million before tax ($0.17 per share after-tax).  Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 reflected net realized investment gains of $90 million before tax ($0.22 per share after-tax).

During the fourth quarter of 2013, Chubb repurchased 3.5 million shares of its common stock at a total cost of $325 million, or an average cost of $93.72 per share. 

Average diluted shares outstanding for the fourth quarter were 254.1 million in 2013 and 266.8 million in 2012.

Book value per share was $64.83 at December 31, 2013 compared to $62.04 at the end of the third quarter and $60.45 at December 31, 2012.

"Chubb had an excellent fourth quarter and an outstanding 2013," said John D. Finnegan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "For the quarter, we produced operating income per share of $2.07 and net income per share of $2.24, both of which were the second-highest of any quarter in our history.  Our combined ratio in the quarter was a very strong 85.5%, once again reflecting the impact of higher rates and strong underwriting performance in all of our business units.  During the fourth quarter, the market tone in the U.S. remained firm, and we achieved mid- to high-single-digit changes in our rate increase metrics in all of our business units.

"For the full year 2013," said Mr. Finnegan, "we generated record operating income per share of $8.03 and record net income per share of $9.04.  Our excellent results in 2013, and our consistent financial performance over time, demonstrate the successful execution of our business and underwriting strategies.  We remain committed to our long-standing strategy of focusing on underwriting discipline and superior claims handling, combined with best-in-class producer relationships, a strong balance sheet and active capital management."

Full Year Results

For the year ended December 31, 2013, net income was $2.3 billion or a record $9.04 per share, compared to $1.5 billion or $5.69 per share for the year ended  December 31, 2012.  Operating income totaled $2.1 billion in 2013 and $1.4 billion in 2012.  Operating income per share increased to a record $8.03 in 2013 from $5.23 in 2012.

Net written premiums increased 3% to $12.2 billion in 2013 from $11.9 billion in 2012.  Foreign currency translation and Storm Sandy reinsurance reinstatement premiums had an insignificant effect on premium growth for the year.  Premiums were up 4% in the U.S. and were flat outside the U.S. (up 2% in local currencies).

The combined ratio in 2013 was 86.1%, compared to 95.3% in 2012.  The impact of catastrophes accounted for 3.4 percentage points of the combined ratio in 2013 and 9.6 points in 2012.  Excluding the impact of catastrophes, the combined ratio was 82.7% in 2013 and 85.7% in 2012.

The expense ratio for the year was 31.9% in 2013 and 31.7% in 2012.

Property and casualty investment income after taxes in 2013 declined 5% to $1.1 billion in 2013 from $1.2 billion in 2012.

Net income for 2013 included net realized investment gains of $402 million before tax ($1.01 per share after-tax).  Net income for 2012 reflected net realized investment gains of $193 million before tax ($0.46 per share after-tax).

During 2013, Chubb repurchased 14.9 million shares of its common stock at a total cost of $1.3 billion, or an average cost of $87.33 per share.

January 2014 Winter Weather Losses

Chubb's first quarter 2014 results will be impacted by losses related to the severe winter weather that has occurred during the month of January in the United States.  To date, that weather has resulted in two declared catastrophes related to the freezing and winter storms that occurred between January 3rd and 8th in 19 states.  Chubb's preliminary estimate of the losses from these two catastrophes is in the range of $150 million to $200 million before tax or $0.39 to $0.52 per share after tax.  This estimate does not include an estimate for any other January weather related losses. 

2014 Operating Income Guidance

Based on management's current outlook, Chubb expects to achieve 2014 operating income per share in the range of $7.10 to $7.40.

This operating income guidance assumes for the full year 2014:

  • An increase of 2% to 4% in net written premiums.
  • Catastrophe losses that have an impact of 5 percentage points on the 2014 combined ratio. This assumed impact is 1 point higher than the assumed 4 points of catastrophe losses in Chubb's initial operating income per share guidance for 2013 to take into account anticipated higher than usual catastrophe losses in the first quarter of 2014. The impact of each percentage point of catastrophe losses on operating income per share is approximately $0.33.
  • A combined ratio between 89% and 90%.
  • A decline of 4% to 6% in property and casualty investment income after taxes.
  • Approximately 245 million average diluted shares outstanding.

The guidance and related assumptions are subject to the risks outlined in the company's forward-looking information safe-harbor statements (see below).

Definitions of Key Terms

Operating Income:   
Operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure, is net income excluding after-tax realized investment gains and losses.  Management uses operating income, among other measures, to evaluate its performance because the realization of investment gains and losses in any given period is largely discretionary as to timing and can fluctuate significantly, which could distort the analysis of trends.

Underwriting Income (Loss):   
Management evaluates underwriting results separately from investment results.  The underwriting operations consist of four separate business units: personal insurance, commercial insurance, specialty insurance and reinsurance assumed.  Performance of the business units is measured based on statutory underwriting results.  Statutory accounting principles applicable to property and casualty insurance companies differ in certain respects from generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Under statutory accounting principles, policy acquisition and other underwriting expenses are recognized immediately, not at the time premiums are earned.  Statutory underwriting income (loss) is arrived at by reducing premiums earned by losses and loss expenses incurred and statutory underwriting expenses incurred.

Management uses underwriting results determined in accordance with GAAP, among other measures, to assess the overall performance of the underwriting operations.  To convert statutory underwriting results to a GAAP basis, certain policy acquisition expenses are deferred and amortized over the period in which the related premiums are earned.  Underwriting income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP is defined as premiums earned less losses and loss expenses incurred and GAAP underwriting expenses incurred.

Property and Casualty Investment Income After Income Tax:   
Management uses property and casualty investment income after income tax, a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate its investment results because it reflects the impact of any change in the proportion of tax exempt investment income to total investment income and is therefore more meaningful for analysis purposes than investment income before income tax.

Book Value per Common Share with Available-for-Sale Fixed Maturities at Amortized Cost:   
Book value per common share represents the portion of consolidated shareholders' equity attributable to one share of common stock outstanding as of the balance sheet date.  Consolidated shareholders' equity includes, as part of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), the after-tax appreciation or depreciation, including unrealized other-than-temporary impairment losses, of the Corporation's available-for-sale fixed maturities, which are carried at fair value.  The appreciation or depreciation of available-for-sale fixed maturities is subject to fluctuation due to changes in interest rates and therefore could distort the analysis of trends.  Management believes that book value per common share with available-for-sale fixed maturities at amortized cost, a non-GAAP financial measure, is an important measure of the underlying equity attributable to one share of common stock.

Combined Loss and Expense Ratio or Combined Ratio:   
The combined loss and expense ratio, expressed as a percentage, is the key measure of underwriting profitability.  Management uses the combined loss and expense ratio calculated in accordance with statutory accounting principles applicable to property and casualty insurance companies to evaluate the performance of the underwriting operations.  It is the sum of the ratio of losses and loss expenses to premiums earned (loss ratio) plus the ratio of statutory underwriting expenses to premiums written (expense ratio) after reducing both premium amounts by dividends to policyholders.

Net Written Premiums Growth (Decrease) Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency Translation, Net Written Premiums Growth (Decrease) Excluding the Impact of Reinsurance Reinstatement Premiums, Net Written Premiums Growth (Decrease) Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency Translation and Reinsurance Reinstatement Premiums
Management uses net written premiums growth (decrease) excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, net written premiums growth (decrease) excluding the impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums, and net written premiums growth (decrease) excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and reinsurance reinstatement premiums, non-GAAP financial measures, to evaluate the trends in net written premiums, exclusive of the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the currencies in which international business is transacted and/or the effect of reinsurance reinstatement premiums.  The impact of foreign currency translation is excluded as exchange rates may fluctuate significantly and the effect of fluctuations could distort the analysis of trends.  When excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, management uses the same exchange rate to translate each foreign currency denominated net written premium amount in both periods.  The impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums related to a major catastrophe event such as Storm Sandy are excluded as these reinsurance reinstatement premiums are infrequent and could distort the analysis of trends.  When excluding the impact of reinsurance reinstatement premiums, net written premiums are increased by the amount of reinsurance reinstatement premiums recognized in the period.

  • the effects of disclosures by, and investigations of, companies we insure, particularly with respect to our lines of business that have a longer time span, or tail, between the incidence of a loss and the settlement of the claim;
  • the impact of legislative, regulatory, judicial and similar developments on companies we insure, particularly with respect to our longer tail lines of business;
