“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we live, work and learn,” said President and CEO Marita Zuraitis. “In this very different environment, Horace Mann is still guided by the same mission: To help educators achieve lifelong financial success. Given the immense challenges educators are facing during this time, we believe they deserve to have someone looking out for them now more than ever. I’m especially proud of the way our employees and agents have taken this commitment to heart during these challenging times.

“Despite these unusual times, Horace Mann continues to take care of our educator customers while remaining focused on the path to long-term growth in market share and achieving a double-digit return on equity,” Zuraitis continued. “We continue to see the benefits of our comprehensive transformational strategic plan. For example, this quarter, our new Supplemental segment added $9.5 million to core earnings. Our Retirement segment continues to benefit from our annuity reinsurance transaction, which significantly mitigated interest rate risk.

“And through the second quarter, we continued measures to support educators, including auto premium credits to reflect driving levels that remained lower than normal. Further, and despite the additional challenges presented by the pandemic, our employees and agents moved quickly and compassionately to take care of customers in the South and Midwest affected by multiple tornadoes and severe storms that resulted in $34.7 million in catastrophe losses.

“As the effects of COVID-19 continue to ripple through the markets, work environments, and schools, we are seeing a short-term impact on new sales and, therefore, the time frame to achieve some longer-term objectives may be extended. But we know that, especially in challenging times, educators appreciate the value of protection and preparation, and we are uniquely well-positioned to help them protect what they have today and prepare for a successful tomorrow.

“Our full-year 2020 core EPS guidance range is now $2.80 to $3.00, with core ROE expected to be about 9%. The revised guidance takes into account the favorable results for the first half of the year. In addition, we are increasing our full-year catastrophe loss assumption and will record subrogation benefits in the third quarter as a result of PG&E's successful emergence from bankruptcy.” Zuraitis concluded. “For 75 years, Horace Mann has been successful because we have stayed true to our mission of serving educators. Guided by this mission and supported by our strong financial position, we will continue to work toward our long-term objectives and focus on supporting our educator customers.”

As a result of the emergence of PG&E Corporation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (together, PG&E) from bankruptcy on July 1, 2020, in the third quarter of 2020, Horace Mann expects to recognize favorable prior year reserve development of approximately $4.8 million, pretax and net of reinsurance, along with the return of reinsurance reinstatement premiums of approximately $3.5 million, for a total of $8.3 million, related to the 2018 Camp Fire in California. The Camp Fire generated gross losses of $150.0 million, and, net losses after reinsurance of $37.9 million pretax, in 2018.

Property and Casualty written premiums declined in part because premiums were reduced by $9.8 million for COVID-19 related credits equal to 15% of two months of automobile premiums. In addition, written premiums reflected lower new business and a lower level of rate increases being implemented in 2020. Auto and property policy retention rates for the quarter were 81.6% and 87.5%, respectively, remaining in line with recent experience.

Segment core earnings rose substantially, primarily due to an 8.4 points improvement in the combined ratio driven by the unusually low underlying loss ratios. The auto loss ratio reflected lower frequency related to reduced driving activity due to COVID-19 as well as the ongoing benefit of profitability initiatives. The property loss ratio reflected lower non-catastrophe-related weather losses.

Offsetting the improved underlying loss ratio were $34.7 million of catastrophe losses from 20 events that added 22 points to the combined ratio. The largest losses were a multi-state, mid-April wind and thunderstorm event in multiple states across the Midwest, South and East Coast; and an early May wind and thunderstorm event that traveled from Kansas to South Carolina.

The catastrophe losses in this year’s second quarter were about 70% of the company’s original full-year guidance. Historically, Horace Mann’s second-quarter catastrophe losses have been approximately 50% of full-year catastrophe losses. As a result, the company’s guidance now assumes full-year 2020 catastrophe losses between $60 and $70 million, or as much as 10 points on the combined ratio.

Supplemental Segment Contributes $9.5 Million to Second-Quarter Earnings

On July 1, 2019, Horace Mann acquired NTA Life Enterprises, LLC (NTA), which became the company’s new Supplemental segment. As a part of Horace Mann, it continues to provide supplemental insurance products to the education market, building on nearly 50 years of experience in the sector. The segment specializes in developing, marketing and underwriting supplemental insurance products, including cancer, heart, limited supplemental disability and accident.

(1) Measured to total revenues.

Supplemental segment sales were $0.7 million for the quarter, reflecting significantly lower sales volume due to school closings in the spring because of COVID-19. Persistency remained steady at 89.3%.

The segment added $9.5 million to core earnings, with the pretax profit margin moving closer to management’s longer-term expectations. Second-quarter results reflected continued favorable trends in the acquired business and some short-term benefit from changes in policyholder behavior due to COVID-19. Segment expenses include the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets under purchase accounting that reduces quarterly core earnings by $3.2 million pretax.

(1) Amount reported as of June 30, 2020 excludes $627.6 of assets under management held under modified coinsurance reinsurance.
(2) Includes Annuity AUM, Brokerage and Advisory AUA, and Recordkeeping AUA.

Annuity contract deposits rose 2.6% over prior year, reflecting the value educators continue to see in our Retirement savings products. Total cash value persistency remained strong at 94.9% for variable annuities and 94.2% for fixed annuities.

Reflecting the 2019 annuity reinsurance transaction, Horace Mann currently has $4.3 billion in annuity assets under management, including $2.1 billion of fixed annuities, $1.7 billion of variable annuities and $0.5 billion of fixed indexed annuities. Assets under administration, which includes advisory and recordkeeping assets added through the acquisition of BCG in 2019, were down 3.9% from year-end 2019, primarily due to market volatility.

The segment recorded net income of $9.7 million for the quarter, benefiting from expense savings as well as favorable DAC unlocking from the recovery of the equity markets in the period. In last year’s second quarter, the segment recorded a net loss, largely due to the impairment of $28.0 million of goodwill as a result of the annuity reinsurance transaction, as well as unfavorable DAC unlocking due to the accelerated amortization of the DAC asset associated with the reinsured block.

Core earnings excluding DAC unlocking for the quarter were down due to lower limited partnership earnings as a result of the equity and credit market volatility in the first quarter.

Sales of recurring premium Life products were relatively consistent with last year’s second quarter, although lower single premium product sales drove overall lower sales. Life core earnings* largely reflected lower net investment income and mortality costs in line with expectations; the company had favorable mortality experience in the second quarter of 2019. Life persistency of 95.8% was consistent with the prior year period.

Investment Portfolio Well-Positioned for Market Disruption and Economic Downturn

Total net investment income includes net investment income on the investment portfolio managed by Horace Mann as well as accreted investment income on the deposit asset on reinsurance related to the company’s 2019 reinsurance of a block of approximately $2.9 billion of policy liabilities related to legacy individual annuities written in 2002 or earlier that was effective April 1, 2019.

Total net investment income declined 14.0% year-over-year. Net investment income on the managed portfolio declined 19.6% because of mark-to-market valuation adjustments on limited partnership and commercial mortgage loan fund investments that report on a one-quarter lag.

Second-quarter pretax net investment gains were $3.2 million, including $0.5 million in other-than-temporary impairment charges. The company’s fixed maturity securities portfolio is in a net unrealized investment gain position of $417.6 million at June 30, 2020.

Book Value Excluding Unrealized Investment Gains Up 5% Year Over Year

At June 30, 2020, shareholders’ equity was $1.64 billion, or $39.69 per share. Excluding net unrealized investment gains on fixed maturity securities, shareholders’ equity was $1.36 billion, or $32.93 per share.* The year-over-year improvement in book value excluding unrealized investment gains on fixed maturity securities primarily reflected the realized gain on assets transferred in the 2019 annuity reinsurance transaction, as well as strong earnings.

At June 30, 2020, total debt was $437.2 million, with $135.0 million outstanding on the company’s line of credit. The debt-to-capital ratio* was 24.3%.
