First Quarter 2022 Summary

  • Revenues for the quarter of $324.9 million, an increase of 10.3% from Q1’21 driven by growth in Fortegra’s specialty insurance lines, increased revenues from higher vessel charter rates and our mortgage servicing portfolio, partially offset by lower mortgage volumes and margins and net realized and unrealized losses on Invesque and other investments in 2022 compared to gains in 2021. Excluding investment gains and losses, revenues were up 24.7%.

  • Net loss of $1.0 million compared to net income of $28.6 million in Q1’21, resulting from growth in insurance and shipping operations, more than offset by declines in mortgage volumes and margins and unrealized investment losses as compared to gains in the prior year period.

  • Adjusted net income of $15.5 million increased 17.5% from $13.2 million in Q1’21, driven by improvement in insurance and shipping operations. Adjusted return on average equity was 15.8%, as compared to 13.7% in the prior year period.

  • $200 million investment in Fortegra from Warburg Pincus remains on track to close in Q2’22.

  • Declared a dividend of $0.04 per share to stockholders of record on May 23, 2022 with a payment date of May 31, 2022.

  • Fortegra’s gross written premiums and premium equivalents increased 25.9% for the quarter driven by growth in U.S. specialty insurance lines and service contract businesses in U.S. and Europe. As a function of Fortegra’s premium growth, the combination of unearned premiums and deferred revenues on the balance sheet grew to $1,749.1 million, up $432.5 million, or 32.8%, from March 31, 2021.

  • Revenues increased 26.9% for the quarter driven by premium growth in specialty admitted and E&S lines. Excluding the impact of investment gains and losses, revenues increased by 35.8% over the prior year period.

  • The combined ratio for the quarter was 90.5%, compared to 91.5% in Q1’21 with the improvement driven by consistent underwriting performance and the continued scalability of Fortegra’s technology and shared service platform.

  • Income before taxes for the quarter of $14.7 million compared to $21.5 million in the prior year period. Return on equity was 14.7%, as compared to 23.9% in Q1’21.

  • Adjusted net income for the quarter was $21.1 million, up 65.3% from Q1’21, driven by revenue growth and the improved combined ratio. The adjusted return on average equity was 28.2%, as compared to 17.9% in Q1’21.

  • On April 1, 2022, Fortegra acquired ITC Compliance GRP Limited for net cash consideration of approximately $15.6 million, which further establishes Fortegra's footprint in Europe and provides a wholly vertical compliance solution for the U.K. automotive market.

  • Mortgage income before taxes was $4.3 million, as compared to $13.1 million in Q1’21, with the decrease driven by a decline in origination volumes and gain on sale margins, partially offset by higher servicing fees and positive fair value adjustments on the mortgage servicing portfolio.

  • Maritime transportation income before taxes was $2.7 million, as compared to $0.5 million in Q1’21, with the increase driven by improved dry-bulk and tanker charter rates.

  • In March 2022, we signed a definitive agreement to sell one of our three dry-bulk vessels for $21.5 million, representing an approximate 50% gain as compared to Q1’22 book value. The sale is expected to close in June 2022.

  • In May 2022, $13.1 million of asset-based debt associated with tanker investments was prepaid, at a discount of 10% to the outstanding principal balance.

Corporate:

Corporate expenses include expenses of the holding company for interest expense, employee compensation and benefits, and public company and other expenses. For the quarter, corporate expenses were $12.2 million compared to $10.2 million in Q1’21. The increase in both periods was primarily the result of increased stock-based compensation expense aligned with the year-over-year stock price improvement.

Non-GAAP

Management uses Adjusted net income and Adjusted return on average equity as measurements of operating performance. Management believes these measures provide supplemental information useful to investors as they are frequently used by the financial community to analyze financial performance and comparison among companies. Management uses Adjusted net income and adjusted return on average equity as part of its capital allocation process and to assess comparative returns on invested capital. Adjusted net income represents income before taxes, less provision (benefit) for income taxes, and excluding the after-tax impact of various expenses that we consider to be unique and non-recurring in nature, stock-based compensation, net realized and unrealized gains (losses), and intangibles amortization associated with purchase accounting. Adjusted net income and Adjusted return on average equity are not measurements of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative or substitute for GAAP net income. See "Non-GAAP Reconciliations" for a reconciliation of these measures to their GAAP equivalents.

Non-GAAP Reconciliations (Unaudited)

Non-GAAP Financial Measures — Adjusted net income and Adjusted return on average equity

The Company defines Adjusted net income as income before taxes, less provision (benefit) for income taxes, and excluding the after-tax impact of various expenses that we consider to be unique and non-recurring in nature, including merger and acquisition related expenses, stock-based compensation, net realized and unrealized gains (losses) and intangibles amortization associated with purchase accounting. We use adjusted net income as an internal operating performance measure in the management of business as part of our capital allocation process. We believe adjusted net income provides useful supplemental information to investors as it is frequently used by the financial community to analyze financial performance between periods and for comparison among companies. Adjusted net income should not be viewed as a substitute for income before taxes calculated in accordance with GAAP, and other companies may define adjusted net income differently.

We define Adjusted return on average equity as Adjusted net income expressed on an annualized basis as a percentage of average beginning and ending stockholder’s equity during the period. We use Adjusted return on average equity as an internal performance measure in the management of our operations because we believe it gives our management and other users of our financial information useful insight into our results of operations and our underlying business performance. Adjusted return on average equity should not be viewed as a substitute for return on average equity calculated in accordance with GAAP, and other companies may define adjusted return on average equity differently.
