  • Second quarter 2014 insurance pre-tax operating income of $2.7 billion
  • Completed the sale of ILFC to AerCap Holdings N.V.; total consideration of approximately $7.6 billion
  • Additional share repurchase authorization of $2.0 billion, with approximately $1.1 billion of shares repurchased during the second quarter of 2014
  • $1.6 billion of cash dividends and loan repayments to AIG Parent from insurance subsidiaries in the second quarter of 2014

    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- American International Group, Inc. (NYSE:AIG) today reported net income attributable to AIG of $3.1 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2.7 billion for the second quarter of 2013. After-tax operating income attributable to AIG was $1.8 billion for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $1.7 billion for the prior-year quarter.

    Diluted earnings per share attributable to AIG were $2.10 for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $1.84 for the second quarter of 2013. Net income for the second quarter of 2014 included a $1.4 billion after-tax gain on the sale of ILFC, or $0.96 per diluted share. After-tax operating income per diluted share attributable to AIG was $1.25 for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $1.12 in the prior-year quarter.

    “AIG’s results in the second quarter were solid. Overall, our businesses demonstrated our continued discipline and resilience, underscoring our focus on improving the results of our core insurance businesses,” said AIG President and Chief Executive Officer Robert H. Benmosche. “In many ways, this quarter, my last as President and CEO of AIG, was punctuated by two significant milestones: the completion of our sale of ILFC to AerCap, which marks the last disposition of AIG’s non-core businesses, and the appointment of Peter Hancock to succeed me as AIG’s next President and Chief Executive Officer.

    “We are pleased with the strong performance across all of our Property Casualty, Life and Retirement and Mortgage Guaranty businesses. Our operating results demonstrate our continued progress, and it was another very active quarter for capital management activities,” continued Mr. Benmosche.

    “As we look towards the future, I have every confidence that Peter will lead AIG to even more sustainable prosperity in the days and years ahead. Under Peter’s leadership, I have no doubt that we will continue advancing our core strategies and priorities with integrity and a profound sense of the responsibility that AIG exceed the expectations – financial, regulatory, and community – of all of our stakeholders,” Mr. Benmosche concluded.

    AIG Property Casualty’s pre-tax operating income increased to $1.4 billion as improved underwriting results were partially offset by a decline in net investment income driven by lower returns on alternative investments and lower income on investments accounted for under the fair value option. As part of AIG’s continued focus on capital management, AIG Property Casualty distributed $701 million in cash dividends to AIG Parent during the second quarter of 2014.

    The second quarter 2014 combined ratio was 98.8, a 3.8 point decrease from the prior-year quarter. Catastrophe losses were $139 million, compared to $316 million in the second quarter of 2013. Including premium adjustments, net prior year favorable loss reserve development was $14 million, compared to net prior year adverse loss reserve development of $154 million for the second quarter of 2013. The lower catastrophe losses and net favorable loss reserve development were partially offset by an increase in Commercial Insurance severe losses of $193 million, compared to $38 million in the prior-year quarter. The second quarter 2014 accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, was 62.7, an increase of 0.8 points from higher severe losses in Commercial Insurance, partially offset by improvements in accident year losses in Consumer Insurance. The second quarter accident year combined ratio, as adjusted, was slightly higher than the prior-year quarter, primarily due to the impact of these severe losses.

    Excluding the effects of foreign exchange, second quarter 2014 net premiums written increased slightly from the same period in the prior year, reflecting a four percent increase in Consumer Insurance due to growth through multiple products and distribution channels. This increase was partially offset by a one percent decrease in Commercial Insurance from lower retention of renewal business and decreases in new business due to increased competition.

    Accident year combined ratio, as adjusted     94.1     91.3   2.8   pts
     


    The Commercial Insurance combined ratio decreased 6.3 points to 95.4, primarily due to net favorable prior year loss reserve development and lower catastrophe losses. Including premium adjustments, net prior year favorable loss reserve development was $63 million, compared to net prior year adverse development of $187 million for the second quarter of 2013. Second quarter 2014 catastrophe losses were $121 million, compared to $307 million in the prior-year quarter. The second quarter 2014 accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, increased 4.2 points to 66.4, reflecting higher property and specialty severe losses. The second quarter 2014 acquisition ratio decreased 0.9 points to 15.4, primarily due to lower premium taxes and guaranty fund and other assessments which were partially offset by an increase in commission rates due to change in business mix. The general operating expense ratio decreased 0.5 points to 12.3, primarily due to a higher premium earned base as the dollar amount of general operating expenses was essentially flat compared to the prior year quarter.

    The Consumer Insurance combined ratio decreased 2.1 points to 98.0 due to lower accident year losses, partially offset by lower net prior year favorable loss reserve development. The accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, decreased 4.5 points to 55.7. The accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, reflects rate increases and improved loss experience in the Japan automobile business, and rate actions and coverage changes in the U.S. warranty business. The general operating expense ratio increased by 1.0 point to 16.3, primarily as a result of higher infrastructure costs related to the ongoing integration of AIG Property Casualty’s Japanese entities.

    AIG Life and Retirement reported quarterly pre-tax operating income of $1.2 billion in the second quarter of 2014, reflecting consistent, strong performance across AIG Life and Retirement’s diversified businesses, with higher pre-tax operating income in both the Retail and Institutional operating segments compared to the same period in the prior year. These results reflected higher fee income from growth in assets under management, partially offset by lower investment income, primarily due to strong returns on alternative investments in the prior-year period. AIG Life and Retirement continued to benefit from disciplined pricing of new business, active management of renewal crediting rates for interest rate-sensitive business and the run-off of older business with relatively high crediting rates, which together have partially offset the pressure on investment yields in the sustained low interest rate environment.

    AIG Life and Retirement’s net investment income of $2.6 billion in the second quarter of 2014 was 3 percent lower than the prior-year quarter, largely due to a $184 million decrease in income from alternative investments, including hedge funds, which had strong returns in the second quarter of 2013. In addition, base portfolio yield declined to 5.17 percent from 5.35 percent in the second quarter of 2013. The decrease in base yield was due to strong results from commercial mortgage loans and structured securities in the prior-year period, as well as the effect of the low interest rate environment on new money yields, including the impact of reinvesting proceeds from investment sales made during 2013 to utilize capital loss carry forwards. Base spreads for the Fixed Annuities and Group Retirement product lines decreased compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to the impact of lower base yields, which were partially offset by active crediting rate management and the run-off of older business with relatively high crediting rates.

    AIG Life and Retirement generated $7.4 billion of premiums and deposits across its diversified product portfolio, up 9 percent from the second quarter of 2013. The growth was led by continued robust sales in the Retirement Income Solutions product line of $2.6 billion, a 15 percent increase over the second quarter of 2013, driven by consumer demand for retirement products with guaranteed income features. Fixed Annuities product line premiums and deposits increased to $1.1 billion for the quarter, up significantly from $355 million in the second quarter of 2013, reflecting market interest rates which, while remaining at historically low levels, have increased since the second quarter of 2013.

    Assets under management grew 13 percent to $332.8 billion, including net flows of $6.3 billion over the last 12 months driven by the strong demand for Retirement Income Solutions and retail mutual fund products, as well as appreciation in invested assets, mutual funds and variable account values due to lower interest rates and favorable equity markets. Continued growth in AIG’s stable value wrap business also generated an increase of $12.1 billion in assets under management from the prior-year period.

    The Retail operating segment reported quarterly pre-tax operating income of $684 million. The Retail segment has benefited from strong sales and net flows of variable annuities, which together with favorable equity markets have increased variable annuity account values, driving higher fee income. Fixed Annuities sales continued to improve despite the sustained low interest rate environment. Disciplined pricing, crediting rate management and the run-off of older business with relatively high crediting rates have mitigated the impact of declining base investment yields on spreads in the Fixed Annuities business. Retail net investment income declined slightly, primarily due to strong alternative investment income from hedge funds in the prior-year period.

    The Institutional operating segment reported quarterly pre-tax operating income of $496 million. Improved results reflected higher fee income in Group Retirement, largely driven by growth in assets under management from equity market appreciation. Institutional net investment income decreased primarily due to strong alternative investment income from hedge funds in the prior-year period, partially offset by higher call income.

    In the second quarter of 2014, AIG Life and Retirement distributed $886 million of cash dividends and loan repayments to AIG Parent.

    United Guaranty Corporation (UGC) reported pre-tax operating income of $210 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to pre-tax operating income of $73 million in the prior-year quarter. Current quarter results reflect increased net premiums earned and lower incurred losses due to $89 million in favorable prior year reserve development. First lien favorable prior year development of $79 million was driven by updated assumptions for overturn rates on previously denied claims related to a settlement with a mortgage lender.

    Net premiums written decreased 9 percent to $249 million. Domestic first-lien new insurance written decreased 20 percent to $11.1 billion in principal of loans insured, driven by declining mortgage originations from refinancing activity. Quality remained high with an average FICO score of 750, and an average loan-to-value of 92 percent on new business.

    OTHER OPERATIONS

    AIG’s Other Operations (excluding Mortgage Guaranty) reported a second quarter 2014 pre-tax operating loss of $11 million compared to pre-tax operating income of $125 million in the prior-year second quarter. This decline in part reflects the results from the DIB driven by lower asset appreciation and a decrease in gains realized upon unwinding certain positions. Partially offsetting these declines was an improvement in Global Capital Markets pre-tax operating income due to gains realized upon unwinding certain positions, earnings from AIG’s equity investment in AerCap and lower interest expense resulting from debt capital management activities.

    Comment on Regulation G

    Throughout this press release, including the financial highlights, AIG presents its financial condition and results of operations in the way it believes will be most meaningful, representative and transparent. Some of the measurements AIG uses are “non-GAAP financial measures” under Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. GAAP is the acronym for “accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.” The non-GAAP financial measures AIG presents may not be comparable to similarly named measures reported by other companies. The reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP measures in accordance with Regulation G are included within the relevant tables or in the Second Quarter 2014 Financial Supplement available in the Investor Information section of AIG’s website, www.aig.com.

    Book Value Per Common Share Excluding Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) (AOCI) is used to show the amount of AIG’s net worth on a per-share basis. AIG believes Book Value Per Common Share Excluding AOCI is useful to investors because it eliminates the effect of non-cash items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period, including changes in fair value of AIG’s available for sale securities portfolio and foreign currency translation adjustments. Book Value Per Common Share Excluding AOCI is derived by dividing Total AIG shareholders’ equity, excluding AOCI, by Total common shares outstanding.

    AIG uses the following operating performance measures because it believes they enhance understanding of the underlying profitability of continuing operations and trends of AIG and its business segments. AIG believes they also allow for more meaningful comparisons with AIG’s insurance competitors.

    After-tax operating income (loss) attributable to AIG is derived by excluding the following items from net income (loss) attributable to AIG: income (loss) from discontinued operations, income (loss) from divested businesses, (including gain on the sale of ILFC and certain post-acquisition costs incurred by AerCap in connection with its acquisition of ILFC and related tax effects), legacy tax adjustments primarily related to certain changes in uncertain tax positions and other tax adjustments, legal reserves (settlements) related to “legacy crisis matters,” deferred income tax valuation allowance (releases) charges, changes in fair value of AIG Life and Retirement fixed maturity securities designated to hedge living benefit liabilities (net of interest expense), changes in benefit reserves and deferred policy acquisition costs (DAC), value of business acquired (VOBA), and sales inducement assets (SIA) related to net realized capital gains (losses), AIG Property Casualty other (income) expense-net, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, net realized capital (gains) losses and non-qualifying derivative hedging activities, excluding net realized capital (gains) losses. “Legacy crisis matters” include favorable and unfavorable settlements related to events leading up to and resulting from AIG’s September 2008 liquidity crisis and legal fees incurred by AIG as the plaintiff in connection with such legal matters. See page 12 for the reconciliation of Net income attributable to AIG to After-tax operating income attributable to AIG.

    AIG Property Casualty pre-tax operating income (loss) includes both underwriting income (loss) and net investment income, but excludes net realized capital (gains) losses, other (income) expense-net, and legal settlements related to legacy crisis matters described above. Underwriting income (loss) is derived by reducing net premiums earned by claims and claims adjustment expenses incurred, acquisition expenses and general operating expenses.

    AIG Property Casualty, along with most property and casualty insurance companies, uses the loss ratio, the expense ratio and the combined ratio as measures of underwriting performance. These ratios are relative measurements that describe, for every $100 of net premiums earned, the amount of claims and claims adjustment expense, and the amount of other underwriting expenses that would be incurred. A combined ratio of less than 100 indicates underwriting income and a combined ratio of over 100 indicates an underwriting loss. The underwriting environment varies across countries and products, as does the degree of litigation activity, all of which affect such ratios. In addition, investment returns, local taxes, cost of capital, regulation, product type and competition can have an effect on pricing and consequently on profitability as reflected in underwriting income and associated ratios.

    Both the AIG Property Casualty Accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, and the AIG Property Casualty combined ratio, as adjusted, exclude catastrophe losses and related reinstatement premiums, prior-year development, net of premium adjustments, and the impact of reserve discounting. Catastrophe losses are generally weather or seismic events having a net impact on AIG Property Casualty in excess of $10 million each.

    AIG Life and Retirement pre-tax operating income (loss) is derived by excluding the following items from pre-tax income (loss): legal settlements related to legacy crisis matters described above, changes in fair values of fixed maturity securities designated to hedge living benefit liabilities (net of interest expense), net realized capital (gains) losses, and changes in benefit reserves and DAC, VOBA and SIA related to net realized capital gains (losses).

    AIG Life and Retirement premiums and deposits includes direct and assumed amounts received on traditional life insurance policies, group benefit policies and deposits on life-contingent payout annuities, as well as deposits received on universal life, investment-type annuity contracts and mutual funds.

    Other Operations pre-tax operating income (loss) is derived by excluding the following items from pre-tax income (loss): certain legal reserves (settlements) related to legacy crisis matters described above, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, net realized capital (gains) losses, changes in benefit reserves and DAC, VOBA and SIA related to net realized capital gains (losses), income (loss) from divested businesses, including Aircraft Leasing, and net (gain) loss on sale of divested businesses (including gain on the sale of ILFC and certain post-acquisition costs incurred by AerCap in connection with its acquisition of ILFC and our share of AerCap’s income taxes).

    Results from discontinued operations are excluded from all of these measures.
