Strong sales and distribution force growth; Total new annualized premiums up 8%;

Solid first quarter earnings

CARMEL, Ind., April 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- CNO Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: CNO) today reported net income of $112.3 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in 1Q24 compared to a net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in 1Q23. Net operating income (1) was $57.5 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in 1Q24 compared to $58.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in 1Q23.

"First quarter results were among the best operating metrics we've delivered in the past several years with respect to Consumer and Worksite sales, our distribution force and new products," said Gary C. Bhojwani, chief executive officer.

"Operating earnings benefited from growth in insurance product margins, reflecting recent sales momentum and expansion of the portfolio yield on five quarters of new money rates exceeding 6%. The only material item that offset our strong operating results in the quarter was $24.3 million of unfavorable mark-to-market pre-tax impacts on real estate partnerships within our alternative investment portfolio. These assets are delivering stable cash flows; however, the economic environment is pressuring their market values. Despite these impacts, total net investment income was up in the quarter."

"Our financial health remains strong, as shown by our excellent capital position and growth in book value per diluted share. We remain focused on serving the needs of middle-income consumers and delivering sustainable profitable growth for our shareholders."

First Quarter 2024 Highlights (as compared to the corresponding period in the prior year where applicable)

  • Consumer Division new annualized premiums ("NAP") (4) up 7% and producing agent count up 8%
  • Worksite Division NAP up 19% and producing agent count up 28%
  • Medicare Supplement NAP up 24%, Medicare Advantage policies sold up 38%
  • Returned $57.3 million to shareholders
  • Book value per share was $21.81; book value per diluted share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive loss, (2) was $34.97
  • Return on equity ("ROE") of 18.8%; operating ROE, as adjusted, (5) of 9.7%
  • Full year guidance remains unchanged


FINANCIAL SUMMARY

Quarter End

(Amounts in millions, except per share data)

(Unaudited)

Net operating income, a non-GAAP(a) financial measure, is used consistently by CNO's management to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and is a measure commonly used in the life insurance industry.  It differs from net income primarily because it excludes certain non-operating items such as net realized investment gains (losses) from sales and change in the allowance for credit losses, changes in fair values of embedded derivatives and market risk benefits and the liability for a deferred compensation plan, and certain significant and unusual items included in net income.  Management believes an analysis of net operating income is important in understanding the profitability and operating trends of the Company's business.  Net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

____________________

(a)

GAAP is defined as accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

(b)

Income from insurance products is the sum of the insurance margins of the annuity, health and life product lines, less expenses allocated to the insurance product lines.  It excludes the income from our fee income business, investment income not allocated to product lines, net expenses not allocated to product lines (primarily holding company expenses) and income taxes.  Insurance margin is management's measure of the profitability of its annuity, health and life segments' performance and consists of insurance policy income plus allocated investment income less insurance policy benefits, interest credited, commissions, advertising expense and amortization of acquisition costs.

(c)

Investment income not allocated to product lines represents net investment income less: (i) equity returns credited to policyholder account balances; (ii) the investment income allocated to our product lines; (iii) interest expense on notes payable, investment borrowings and financing arrangements; (iv) expenses related to the funding agreement-backed notes ("FABN") program; and (v) certain expenses related to benefit plans that are offset by special-purpose investment income; plus (vi) the impact of annual option forfeitures related to fixed indexed annuity surrenders.

 

FINANCIAL SUMMARY (continued)

Management vs. GAAP Measures

(Dollars in millions, except per share data)

(Unaudited)

Shareholders' equity, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), and book value per share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), are non-GAAP measures that are utilized by management to view the business without the effect of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) which is primarily attributable to fluctuations in interest rates associated with fixed maturities, available for sale. Management views the business in this manner because the Company has the ability and generally, the intent, to hold investments to maturity and meaningful trends can be more easily identified without the fluctuations.  In addition, shareholders' equity excludes net operating loss carryforwards in our non-GAAP return on equity measures as such assets are not discounted and, accordingly, will not provide a return to shareholders until after it is realized as a reduction to taxes that would otherwise be paid.  Management believes that excluding this value from the equity component of this measure enhances the understanding of the effect these non-discounted assets have on operating returns.

Non-Operating Items

Net investment losses in 1Q24 were $4.6 million net of a reduction in the allowance for credit losses of $1.5 million. Net investment losses in 1Q23 were $12.7 million including an increase in the allowance for credit losses of $1.5 million.

During 1Q24 and 1Q23, we recognized an increase (decrease) in earnings of $12.4 million and $(1.9) million, respectively, due to the net change in market value of investments.

During 1Q24 and 1Q23, we recognized an increase (decrease) in earnings of $64.0 million and $(65.1) million, respectively, resulting from changes in the estimated fair value of embedded derivative liabilities and market risk benefits related to our fixed indexed annuities.  Such amounts include the impacts of changes in market interest rates and equity impacts used to determine the estimated fair values of the embedded derivatives and market risk benefits.

The fair value of CNO's available for sale fixed maturity portfolio was $21.6 billion compared with an amortized cost of $24.0 billion.  Net unrealized losses were comprised of gross unrealized gains of $127.5 million and gross unrealized losses of $2,391.2 million.  The allowance for credit losses was $39.0 million at March 31, 2024.

Statutory (based on non-GAAP measures) and GAAP Capital Information

The consolidated statutory risk-based capital ratio of our U.S. based insurance subsidiaries was estimated at 391% at March 31, 2024, reflecting an estimated 1Q24 statutory operating loss of $4 million and the payment of insurance company dividends (net of capital contributions) to the holding company of $43.3 million during 1Q24.

During 1Q24, we repurchased $40.0 million of common stock under our securities repurchase program (including $0.8 million of repurchases settled in 2Q24).  We repurchased 1.5 million common shares at an average cost of $26.98 per share.  As of March 31, 2024, we had 108.6 million shares outstanding and had authority to repurchase up to an additional $481.8 million of our common stock.  During 1Q24, dividends paid on common stock totaled $17.3 million.

Unrestricted cash and investments held by our holding company were $223 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $256 million at December 31, 2023.

Book value per common share was $21.81 at March 31, 2024 compared to $20.26 at December 31, 2023.  Book value per diluted share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (2), was $34.97 at March 31, 2024, compared to $33.94 at December 31, 2023. 

The debt-to-capital ratio was 32.5% and 34.0% at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.  Our debt-to-total capital ratio, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (3) was 22.9% and 23.1% at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.

Return on equity for the trailing four quarters ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, was 18.8% and 21.8%, respectively.  Operating return, excluding significant items, on equity, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and net operating loss carryforwards (5) for the trailing four quarters ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, was 8.5% and 9.8%, respectively.

NOTES

(1)

Management believes that an analysis of Net income applicable to common stock before: (i) net realized investment gains or losses from sales, impairments and the change in allowance for credit losses, net of taxes; (ii) net change in market value of investments recognized in earnings, net of taxes; (iii) changes in fair value of embedded derivative liabilities and market risk benefits related to our fixed indexed annuities, net of taxes; (iv) fair value changes related to the agent deferred compensation plan, net of taxes; (v) loss related to reinsurance transaction, net of taxes; (vi) loss on extinguishment of debt, net of taxes; (vii) changes in the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets and other tax items; and (viii) other non-operating items consisting primarily of earnings attributable to variable interest entities, net of taxes ("Net operating income," a non-GAAP financial measure) is important to evaluate the financial performance of the company, and is a key measure commonly used in the life insurance industry.  Management uses this measure to evaluate performance because the items excluded from net operating income can be affected by events that are unrelated to the company's underlying fundamentals.  A reconciliation of Net operating income to Net income applicable to common stock is provided in the table on page 2.  Additional information concerning this non-GAAP measure is included in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that are available in the "Investors - SEC Filings" section of CNO's website, CNOinc.com.

(2)

Book value per diluted share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if outstanding stock options were exercised and restricted stock and performance units were vested.  The dilution from options, restricted shares and performance units is calculated using the treasury stock method.  Under this method, we assume the proceeds from the exercise of the options (or the unrecognized compensation expense with respect to restricted stock and performance units) will be used to purchase shares of our common stock at the closing market price on the last day of the period.  In addition, the calculation of this non-GAAP measure differs from the corresponding GAAP measure because accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) has been excluded from the value of capital used to determine this measure.  Management believes this non-GAAP measure is useful because it removes the volatility that arises from changes in the unrealized appreciation (depreciation) of our investments.

(3)

The calculation of this non-GAAP measure differs from the corresponding GAAP measure because accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) has been excluded from the value of capital used to determine this measure.  Management believes this non-GAAP measure is useful because it removes the volatility that arises from changes in the unrealized appreciation (depreciation) of our investments.

(4)

Measured by new annualized premiums for life and health products, which includes 10% of single premium whole life deposits and 100% of all other premiums (excluding annuities).  Sales of third-party products are excluded.

(5)

The following summarizes the calculations of: (i) operating return on equity, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and net operating loss carryforwards (a non-GAAP financial measure); (ii) operating return, excluding significant items, on equity, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and net operating loss carryforwards (a non-GAAP financial measure); and (iii) return on equity are as follows (dollars in millions):
