Old Republic International Corporation (NYSE: ORI) today reported pretax income, excluding investment gains (losses), of $222.9 for the quarter. General Insurance pretax operating income rose 35.6%, while Title Insurance results were negatively impacted by the effect of elevated mortgage interest rates. Solid General Insurance underwriting results led to a consolidated combined ratio of 92.7%.

Consolidated net premiums and fees earned were down 19.0% for the quarter, with Title Insurance dropping 41.6% as a result of lower revenues in both direct and agency operations, while General Insurance grew 5.9%. Net investment income increased significantly in the quarter, primarily due to higher investment yields earned.

During the quarter, the Company returned total capital to shareholders of approximately $204, comprised of $71 in dividends, and nearly $133 of share repurchases (5.3 million shares at an average price of $24.85 per share). Following the close of the quarter, the Company repurchased $35 of additional shares (1.4 million shares at an average price of $24.97 per share), thereby completing its repurchase program under the most recent authorization.

Book value per share grew to $21.91 as of March 31, 2023, reflecting higher fair market values in the investment portfolio during the quarter and operating earnings. With the addition of dividends declared during the quarter, this was an increase of 5.1% over year-end 2022.

Old Republic's business is managed for the long run. In this context management's key objectives are to achieve highly profitable operating results over the long term, and to ensure balance sheet strength for the primary needs of the insurance subsidiaries' underwriting and related services business. In this view, the evaluation of periodic and long-term results excludes consideration of all investment gains (losses). Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), however, net income, inclusive of investment gains (losses), is the measure of total profitability.

In management's opinion, the focus on income excluding investment gains (losses), also described herein as segment pretax operating income, provides a better way to analyze, evaluate, and establish accountability for the results of the insurance operations. The inclusion of realized investment gains (losses) in net income can mask trends in operating results, because such realizations are often highly discretionary. Similarly, the inclusion of unrealized investment gains (losses) in equity securities can further distort such operating results with significant period-to-period fluctuations.

General Insurance net premiums earned increased 5.9% for the quarter, driven by premium rate increases, high renewal retention ratios, and new business production. Premium growth was experienced across most lines of coverage, and was most pronounced within commercial auto. This line achieved strong rate increases which were partially offset by rate declines within public D&O and workers' compensation coverages. Net investment income increased significantly in the quarter, reflecting higher investment yields earned and to a lesser extent, growth in the invested asset base.

The reported loss ratio for General Insurance improved considerably in the quarter, inclusive of favorable reserve development from prior periods. Favorable development of 5.5% came predominantly from the commercial auto and workers' compensation lines of coverage. The current period loss costs reflect several years of premium rate increases, underwriting actions, and a shift in the line of coverage mix. The first quarter expense ratio is consistent with the prior quarter and the current line of coverage mix. Investments in new products and geographies in recent years have diversified the General Insurance business, resulting in shifts in the lines of coverage mix toward lines with higher expense ratios and lower current period loss ratios.

Together, these factors produced highly profitable combined ratios and greater pretax operating income for the quarter. For General Insurance, we target combined ratios between 90% and 95% over a full underwriting cycle, recognizing that quarterly and annual ratios and trends may deviate from this range, particularly given the long claim payment patterns associated with the business.

Title Insurance net premiums and fees earned decreased by 41.6% for the quarter. Both directly produced and agency produced revenues declined, driven by a continued drop in mortgage originations resulting from a substantial increase in interest rates. Commercial premiums decreased to a lesser degree in the quarter, and represent 25% of first quarter 2023 premiums compared to 20% for 2022. Net investment income increased for the quarter, reflecting higher investment yields earned partially offset by a slightly lower invested asset base.

Title Insurance loss ratios decreased slightly for the quarter due to higher levels of favorable development as a percentage of premium. The first quarter expense ratio was elevated compared to the same period last year, generally reflecting lower directly produced revenues that carry higher fixed expenses. In addition, the 2023 ratio reflects the impending recovery of the $17.2 (3.0 percentage points) state sales tax assessment paid in the fourth quarter of last year.

Together, these factors produced a small underwriting gain and significantly lower pretax operating income for the quarter.

Given the volatility inherent with a lack of scale, this segment is expected to produce highly variable operating results throughout the remainder of the run-off. Pretax operating results of RFIG Run-off reflect the continuing drop in net earned premiums in line with the declining risk in force, and generally consistent loss costs emanating from fewer newly reported defaults and improved cure rates on previously outstanding defaults. Net investment income decreased due to a declining invested asset base, driven by the payment of extraordinary dividends which included $25.0 to the parent company during the first quarter of 2023.

This segment includes a small life and accident insurance business and the net costs associated with the parent holding company and several internal corporate services subsidiaries. The segment tends to produce highly variable results stemming from volatility inherent from the lack of scale. For the quarter, net investment income increased due to a higher investment yield earned on a slightly lower invested asset base attributable to the return of capital to shareholders.

As of March 31, 2023, the consolidated investment portfolio reflected an allocation of approximately 80% to fixed income (bonds and notes) and short-term investments, and 20% to equity securities (common stock). Our investment management process remains focused on retaining quality investments that produce consistent streams of investment income. The fixed income portfolio continues to be the anchor for the insurance underwriting subsidiaries' obligations. The maturities of our fixed income assets are matched to the expected liabilities for claim payment obligations to policyholders and their beneficiaries. Our equity portfolio consists of high-quality common stocks of U.S. companies with long-term records of reasonable earnings growth and steadily increasing dividends.

Old Republic's investment portfolio is directed in consideration of enterprise-wide risk management objectives, intended to ensure solid funding of our underwriting subsidiaries' long-term claim payment obligations to policyholders and their beneficiaries, as well as the long-term stability of the subsidiaries' capital base. For these reasons, the investment portfolio does not contain high risk or illiquid asset classes and has zero or extremely limited exposure to, collateralized debt obligations (CDO's), credit default and interest rate swaps, hybrid securities, asset-backed securities (ABS), guaranteed investment contracts (GIC), structured investment vehicles (SIV), auction rate variable short-term securities, limited partnerships, derivatives, hedge funds or private equity investments. Moreover, the Company does not engage in hedging or securities lending transactions, nor does it invest in securities whose values are predicated on non-regulated financial instruments exhibiting amorphous or unfunded counter-party risk attributes. Pursuant to our enterprise risk management guidelines and controls, we perform regular stress tests of our investment portfolio to gain reasonable assurance that periodic downdrafts in market prices do not seriously undermine our financial strength and the long-term continuity and prospects of our underwriting subsidiaries.

Changes in shareholders' equity per share are reflected in the following table. As shown, these resulted mostly from net income excluding net investment gains (losses), realized and unrealized investment gains (losses), and dividend payments to shareholders.

Managing Old Republic's Insurance Business for the Long-Run

The insurance business is distinguished from most others in that the prices (premiums) charged for most products are set without knowing what the ultimate loss costs will be. We also can't know exactly when claims will be paid, which may be many years after a policy was issued or expired. This casts Old Republic as a risk-taking enterprise managed for the long run. Old Republic therefore conducts the business with a primary focus on achieving favorable underwriting results over cycles, and on maintaining a sound financial condition to support our subsidiaries' long-term obligations to policyholders and their beneficiaries.

The Company is managed for the long run and with little regard for quarterly or even annual reporting periods. These time frames are too short. Management believes results are best evaluated by looking at underwriting and overall operating performance trends over 10-year intervals. These likely include one or two economic and/or underwriting cycles. This provides enough time for these cycles to run their course, for underwriting and premium rate changes to appear in financial results, and for reserved loss costs to be quantified with greater certainty.

Safe Harbor Statement

Historical data pertaining to the operating results, liquidity, and other performance indicators applicable to an insurance enterprise such as Old Republic are not necessarily indicative of results to be achieved in succeeding years. In addition to the factors cited below, the long-term nature of the insurance business, seasonal and annual patterns in premium production and incidence of claims, changes in yields obtained on invested assets, changes in government policies and free markets affecting inflation rates and general economic conditions, and changes in legal precedents or the application of law affecting the settlement of disputed and other claims can have a bearing on period-to-period comparisons and future operating results.

Some of the oral or written statements made in the Company's reports, press releases, and conference calls following earnings releases, can constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any such forward-looking statements involve assumptions, uncertainties, and risks that may affect the Company's future performance. With regard to Old Republic's General Insurance segment, its results can be particularly affected by the level of market competition, which is typically a function of available capital and expected returns on such capital among competitors, the levels of investment yields and inflation rates, and periodic changes in claim frequency and severity patterns caused by natural disasters, weather conditions, accidents, illnesses, work-related injuries, and unanticipated external events. Title Insurance and RFIG Run-off results can be affected by similar factors, and by changes in national and regional housing demand and values, the availability and cost of mortgage loans, employment trends, and default rates on mortgage loans. Life and accident insurance earnings can be affected by the levels of employment and consumer spending, changes in mortality and health trends, and alterations in policy lapsation rates. At the parent holding company level, operating earnings or losses are generally reflective of the amount of debt outstanding and its cost, interest income on temporary holdings of short-term investments, and period-to-period variations in the costs of administering the Company's widespread operations.

General Insurance, Title Insurance, Corporate & Other, and RFIG Run-off maintain customer information and rely upon technology platforms to conduct their business. As a result, each of them and the Company are exposed to cyber risk. Many of the Company's operating subsidiaries maintain separate IT systems which are deemed to reduce enterprise-wide risks of potential cybersecurity incidents. However, given the potential magnitude of a significant breach, the Company continually evaluates on an enterprise-wide basis its IT hardware, security infrastructure and business practices to respond to these risks and to detect and remediate in a timely manner significant cybersecurity incidents or business process interruptions.

A more detailed listing and discussion of the risks and other factors which affect the Company's risk-taking insurance business are included in Part I, Item 1A - Risk Factors, of the Company's 2022 Form 10-K Annual Report filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission, which is specifically incorporated herein by reference.

Any forward-looking statements or commentaries speak only as of their dates. Old Republic undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any and all such comments, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, and accordingly they may not be unduly relied upon.
