Primerica Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

May 05, 2022

Life-licensed sales force grew from the prior quarter end to 130,206

Term Life net premiums increased 9%; adjusted direct premiums increased 10% with sales remaining above pre-pandemic levels

Investment and Savings Products sales of $3.1 billion increased 7%

Continued headwinds in the Senior Health segment

Net earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $2.06 declined 16%; return on stockholders’ equity (ROE) of 16.2%

Diluted adjusted operating EPS of $2.11 declined 14%; adjusted net operating income return on adjusted stockholders’ equity (ROAE) of 16.6%

Declared dividend of $0.55 per share, payable on June 14, 2022, and repurchased $99 million of common stock during the quarter

DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Primerica, Inc. (NYSE: PRI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Total revenues of $691.2 million increased 8% compared to the first quarter of 2021. Net income attributable to Primerica of $81.4 million decreased 17%, while earnings per diluted share of $2.06 decreased 16% compared to the same period in the prior year. ROE was 16.2% for the quarter.

Adjusted operating revenues were $692.6 million, a 9% increase compared to the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted net operating income of $83.3 million decreased 14%, while adjusted operating earnings per diluted share of $2.11 decreased 14% compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted net operating income was driven by a loss in the Senior Health segment of $19.0 million ($15 million after-tax), or $0.37 per share. ROAE was 16.6% in the current quarter.

First quarter results reflect continued revenue growth in the Term Life and Investment and Savings Products (ISP) segments, while income growth was constrained by several factors. Term Life operating revenues increased 10% year-over-year with income before income taxes increasing 4%. As the quarter progressed, term life persistency and claims continued to normalize to pre-COVID levels. In addition, insurance expenses were elevated year-over-year from adding the previously postponed biennial convention to our normal cycle of sales force leadership events. ISP operating revenues increased 8% year-over-year, while income before income taxes grew 2%. Sales-based net revenues were lower than in the previous year period due to the expansion of sales force bonuses during 2021. Asset-based revenues and expenses continued to grow in line with average client asset values, however market volatility during the quarter drove higher Canadian segregated fund DAC amortization in the period. Results in the Senior Health segment reflect the Company’s deliberate efforts to slow growth as we assess changes necessary to build a successful business. Results for each segment are addressed in greater detail below.

“We are pleased with the performance in our term life and ISP businesses, and the return of growth in the size of our sales force during the quarter,” said Glenn Williams, Chief Executive Officer. “Earnings growth during the quarter was pressured by heightened expenses as we catch-up on in person sales force leadership events. Additional headwinds are also coming from market volatility for our ISP business and the continuing challenges in the Senior Health business.”

Life Insurance Licensed Sales Force

Sales force metrics are difficult to compare year-over-year due to COVID-related incentives in recruiting and special state licensing measures in the prior year period. During the quarter, the Company recruited nearly 85,000 individuals, which is strong and demonstrates the attractiveness of the Primerica business opportunity in today’s workforce environment. Improved access to in-person exam preparation classes led to nearly 10,000 individuals obtaining a new life license during the first quarter of 2022 with the number of new licenses increasing each month during the quarter. On March 31, 2022, the Company had a total of 130,206 independent life-licensed representatives, marking a shift to growth in the size of the life-licensed sales force on a sequential quarter basis.

Term Life Insurance

Sales volume has continued to normalize following a period of heightened client demand driven by COVID. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company issued over 71,000 new term life insurance policies, which remained above pre-pandemic levels. Productivity at 0.18 policies per life-licensed representative per month reflects typical first quarter seasonality and remains above the level seen prior to the pandemic in the first quarter of 2019.

First quarter revenues of $418.4 million increased 10% year-over-year, driven by 10% growth in adjusted direct premiums. As persistency continued to normalize to pre-pandemic levels, particularly for policies issued in the last two years, the DAC amortization ratio increased to 15.3%, however, it remains below what was typically seen in the first quarter prior to the pandemic. The impact of normalizing persistency on adjusted direct premiums, DAC amortization and benefit reserves, collectively, was consistent with the overall impact in the first quarter of 2021. The benefit ratio was 62.1%, decreasing 180 basis points year-over-year as COVID-related net death claims declined throughout the quarter to an estimated $16 million, or $5 million lower than first quarter 2021. The Company did not experience any significant non-COVID excess death claims during the quarter.

Insurance expenses increased $10.9 million, or 23% year-over-year. Approximately half of the increase was driven by higher costs associated with the return to the normal cycle of sales force leadership events combined with planning for the biennial convention, which had been postponed due to the pandemic and rescheduled to June 2022. The remainder of the increase was due to a combination of growth in the business, higher employee compensation costs from annual merit increases and higher agent-related costs as the Company returned to normal levels of in-person pre-licensing classes.

Investment and Savings Products

Total product sales during the quarter were $3.1 billion, a 7% increase compared to the first quarter of 2021. Heightened market volatility during the period led to slower sales growth as the quarter progressed; nonetheless, net client inflows of $1.2 billion remained solid which reflects clients’ long-term approach to investing. Client asset values on March 31, 2022, were $93.7 billion, up 9% year-over-year.

Revenues of $241.0 million during the quarter increased 8%, while pre-tax income of $64.6 million increased 2% compared to the prior year period. Sales-based revenues increased 5% year-over-year, largely in line with growth in revenue-generating sales. Sales-based commission expenses increased 9%, reflecting a higher level of sales force bonuses implemented in the second half of 2021 to reflect outstanding sales performance. Asset-based revenues and commission expenses increased 12% and 14%, respectively, largely in line with average client asset values. Canadian segregated fund DAC amortization was higher year-over-year from volatility in client asset values during the quarter.

Operating expenses increased $3.2 million, or 8% year-over-year, due to a combination of growth in the business and higher costs associated with sales force leadership events and the biennial convention.

Senior Health

The Company saw strong consumer demand during the Open Enrollment Period, which coincides with the first quarter. As previously indicated, the Company deliberately limited the number of senior health licensed agents, which led to lower sales volume for the first quarter. Approved policies were approximately 24,000 during the quarter.

The pre-tax operating loss of $19.0 million resulted primarily from a negative tail revenue adjustment of $19.1 million for policies approved in prior periods. The tail adjustment was driven by continued challenges with renewal rates for previous year policy cohorts and ongoing refinements to our revenue projection model. Early performance for the 2022 policy cohort, which is largely comprised of policies issued during the Annual Election Period last quarter, has achieved expectations and showed improved performance over the prior year cohort. The lifetime value of commissions (“LTV”) per approved policy was $862 for the first quarter and while contract acquisition costs were lower than in the fourth quarter of 2021, the reduction was more than offset by lower LTV for the period. Given the high level of commissions typically paid by carriers in the first quarter, Primerica did not provide any funding to the Senior Health segment during the period. The Company continues to work diligently to make operational adjustments in the business in light of widespread sector challenges.

Corporate and Other Distributed Products

During the first quarter, the segment recorded an adjusted operating loss before taxes of $27.9 million, increasing $3.7 million year-over-year. The increase was largely revenue driven with net investment income in the segment decreasing $3.0 million as the allocation to Term Life was larger to support the growing block of business. Commission revenues from third-party products sales, including mortgages which slowed due to rising interest rates, were $0.9 million lower year-over-year.

Adjusted operating benefits and expenses were largely unchanged compared to the prior year period as lower benefits and claims on closed blocks of business and lower third-party product commissions offset a $1.3 million increase in other operating expenses due higher employee compensation costs from annual merit increases.

Taxes

The effective tax rate remained relatively unchanged at 23.5% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 23.7% in the first quarter of 2021.

Capital

During the first quarter, the Company repurchased 710,825 shares of common stock for $99.0 million. The Company expects to repurchase a total of $306 million of common stock during 2022. The Board of Directors has approved a dividend of $0.55 per share, payable on June 14, 2022, to stockholders of record on May 20, 2022.

Primerica has a strong balance sheet, including invested assets and cash at the holding company of $260 million. Primerica Life Insurance Company’s statutory risk-based capital (RBC) ratio was estimated to be about 440% as of March 31, 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Company presents certain non-GAAP financial measures. Specifically, the Company presents adjusted direct premiums, other ceded premiums, adjusted operating revenues, adjusted operating income before income taxes, adjusted net operating income, adjusted stockholders’ equity and diluted adjusted operating earnings per share. Adjusted direct premiums and other ceded premiums are net of amounts ceded under coinsurance transactions that were executed concurrent with our initial public offering (the “IPO coinsurance transactions”) for all periods presented. We exclude amounts ceded under the IPO coinsurance transactions in measuring adjusted direct premiums and other ceded premiums to present meaningful comparisons of the actual premiums economically maintained by the Company. Amounts ceded under the IPO coinsurance transactions will continue to decline over time as policies terminate within this block of business. Adjusted operating revenues, adjusted operating income before income taxes, adjusted net operating income and diluted adjusted operating earnings per share exclude the impact of investment gains (losses) and fair value mark-to-market (“MTM”) investment adjustments, including credit impairments, for all periods presented. We exclude investment gains (losses), including credit impairments, and MTM investment adjustments in measuring these non-GAAP financial measures to eliminate period-over-period fluctuations that may obscure comparisons of operating results due to items such as the timing of recognizing gains (losses) and market pricing variations prior to an invested asset’s maturity or sale that are not directly associated with the Company’s insurance operations. Adjusted operating income before taxes, adjusted net operating income, and diluted adjusted operating earnings per share also exclude transaction-related expenses associated with the purchase of 80% of e-TeleQuote Insurance, Inc. and subsidiaries (collectively, “e-TeleQuote”) and adjustments to share-based compensation expense for shares exchanged in the business combination. We exclude e-TeleQuote transaction-related expenses as these are non-recurring items that will cause incomparability between period-over-period results. We exclude adjustments to share-based compensation expense for shares exchanged in the business combination to eliminate period-over-period fluctuations that may obscure comparisons of operating results primarily due to the volatility of changes in the fair value of shares prior to the dates that can ultimately be redeemed. Adjusted operating income before income taxes and adjusted net operating income exclude income attributable to the noncontrolling interest to present only the income that is attributable to stockholders of the Company. Adjusted stockholders’ equity excludes the impact of net unrealized investment gains (losses) recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) for all periods presented. We exclude unrealized investment gains (losses) in measuring adjusted stockholders’ equity as unrealized gains (losses) from the Company’s available-for-sale securities are largely caused by market movements in interest rates and credit spreads that do not necessarily correlate with the cash flows we will ultimately realize when an available-for-sale security matures or is sold.

Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the definitions of similar measures used by other companies. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company’s performance. Furthermore, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures may provide users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results of prior periods as they are expected to be reflective of the core ongoing business. These measures have limitations and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are attached to this release.
