DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Primerica, Inc. (PRI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. Total revenues of $598.3 million increased 12% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Net income of $100.1 million increased 7%, while earnings per diluted share of $2.52 increased 13% compared to the same quarter last year. ROE was 22.5% for the current quarter.

Adjusted operating revenues were $594.7 million, increasing 12% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted net operating income of $97.3 million increased 5%, while diluted adjusted operating earnings per share of $2.45 increased 10% compared to the same quarter last year. ROAE was 23.4% during the fourth quarter of 2020.

During the fourth quarter, the COVID-19 pandemic continued to have a significant impact on the Company’s Term Life segment. COVID-19 related death claims were approximately $14 million, net of reinsurance, their highest level since the onset of the pandemic. COVID-19 impacted customer behavior, with strong sales and policy persistency continuing in the quarter. The Investment and Savings Products (ISP) segment benefited from favorable market performance during the fourth quarter driving ending client asset values to a record $82 billion. ISP sales during the quarter continued to shift toward mutual funds and managed accounts and away from annuity products.

“The COVID-19 pandemic caused middle income consumers to clearly understand their need for protection today and investments for tomorrow. The adaptability of our sales force allowed us to meet those needs more than ever before,” said Glenn Williams, Chief Executive Officer. “I am very proud of how our Primerica team navigated the unique challenges of 2020 to continue to help clients achieve their financial goals.”

Results for the full year ended December 31, 2020 were also heavily impacted by the pandemic. COVID-19 related death claims, net of reinsurance, were approximately $33 million, while issued life policies were up 23% year-over-year with a record $109 billion of face amount issued. Policy persistency also reached record levels during the year. ISP sales for 2020 were a record $7.8 billion, up 4% year-over-year, despite a brief period of disruption following the market correction in March. Term Life and ISP income before taxes increased 16% and 6% year-over-year, respectively. Total revenues of $2.2 billion increased 8% year-over-year, setting a new annual record for the Company. Net income of $386.2 million and earnings per diluted share of $9.57 increased 5% and 11%, respectively, and also represent new records.

Life Insurance Licensed Sales Force
At the end of the year, the Company had 134,907 independent life-licensed representatives, which represents a 3% increase year-over-year. Special COVID-19 licensing measures enacted by various states added 3,597 licenses that were issued on a temporary basis and 2,508 licenses with extended renewal dates. The Company estimates that approximately 4,200 individuals included in the year-end number will either not pursue the steps necessary to obtain a permanent license or will not renew an expiring license.

Recruiting activity remained robust with 80,599 new recruits added in the fourth quarter of 2020, a 33% increase year-over-year. The licensing process remains challenged; however, gradual improvements led to a total of 12,119 new licenses during the quarter, including 1,668 temporary licenses issued by the states under their special COVID-19 policies, and represented a 9% increase compared to the prior year’s fourth quarter.

Term Life Insurance
Demand for protection products continued to positively impact sales during the fourth quarter. The Company issued 87,307 new life insurance policies during the period, a 22% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Productivity for the quarter, defined as policies issued per life insurance licensed representative per month, was 0.21 compared to 0.18 in the prior year period.

Revenues of $369.0 million during the fourth quarter increased 16% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, while pre-tax income of $89.4 million increased 9% year-over-year. Higher sales, along with favorable persistency throughout the year, moved the growth rate in adjusted direct premiums up to 15% year-over-year and added $7 million to pre-tax income for the quarter. Strong persistency also led to $23 million less DAC amortization and $13 million higher benefit reserve increases being recognized year-over-year. COVID-19 related death claims, net of reinsurance, during the quarter were estimated to be $14 million. As typically done in the fourth quarter, actuarial assumptions were locked in for 2020 business, resulting in a $5.5 million increase in benefit reserves due to lower long-term interest rate assumptions.

Investment and Savings Products
During the fourth quarter, investment product sales were $2.1 billion, a 4% increase year-over-year. Sales of mutual funds and managed accounts were both up 17%, while annuities declined 15% as the income benefits on these products become less attractive. Net client inflows of $642 million during the quarter continued to compare very favorably to the prior year period due to a combination of strong sales and low client redemptions. Average client asset values were $76.1 billion, an increase of 12% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.

Revenues of $193.3 million during the fourth quarter increased 6% compared to the same quarter in 2019, while pre-tax income of $56.7 million increased 7%. Despite a 5% increase in revenue generating sales, associated revenues were flat year-over-year as the mix of products sold continued to weigh more heavily toward mutual funds, which have a lower sales-based commission rate compared to annuities. Asset-based revenues increased 11% year-over-year, in line with the increase in average client asset values. Sales-based and asset-based commissions were largely correlated to associated revenues. Results also reflected a $1 million reduction in Canadian segregated fund DAC amortization due to favorable market performance and lower redemptions.

Corporate and Other Distributed Products
During the fourth quarter of 2020, the segment recorded an operating loss before taxes of $18.1 million compared to $13.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Consolidated net investment income was largely unchanged year-over-year as growth in the size of the investment portfolio was largely offset by lower interest rates. However, on a segment basis, net investment income allocated to the C&O segment was down $2.2 million as we continue to allocate a larger portion of net investment income to the Term Life segment in support of the growing block of business. The newly launched the U.S. mortgage distribution business added $3.7 million of revenues and about $1.0 million of pre-tax income to the segment’s results. Benefits and claims were $2.1 million higher year-over-year, largely due to a reserve adjustment on a closed block of business to reflect the sustained low interest rate environment.

Taxes
The fourth quarter effective income tax rate was 24.0% compared to 23.4% in the fourth quarter of 2019. The rate increase was largely driven by higher state income taxes and Canadian earnings partially offset by higher exposure reserve releases in the current year period.

Capital
During the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased 115,433 shares of common stock for $13.4 million, bringing the annual total to $231.4 million. The Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $300 million of the Company’s common stock through June 2022 and approved an 18% increase in stockholder dividends to $0.47 per share, payable on March 15, 2021, to stockholders of record on February 22, 2021.

Primerica has a strong balance sheet and continues to be well-capitalized to meet future needs. Primerica Life Insurance Company’s statutory risk-based capital (RBC) ratio was estimated to be approximately 400% as of December 31, 2020.

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 realized investment gains (losses) and fair value mark-to-market (“MTM”) investment adjustments, including credit impairments, for all periods presented. We exclude realized 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 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.
