NMI Holdings, Inc. Reports Record Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

August 1, 2018

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NMI Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:NMIH) today reported GAAP net income of $25.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, and adjusted net income of $27.4 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for its second quarter ended June 30, 2018. This compares with GAAP net income of $22.4 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, and adjusted net income of $22.0 million, or $0.34 per diluted share in the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. In the second quarter of 2017, the company reported GAAP net income of $6.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, and adjusted net income of $7.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share.

Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share for the quarters presented exclude the impact of periodic capital markets transaction costs, changes in the fair value of our warrant liability and realized gains or losses from our investment portfolio. In the second quarter of 2018, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share exclude costs of $2.9 million related to the issuance of Insurance-Linked Notes in July 2018, refinancing of the company’s existing senior secured term loan with a new $150 million five-year senior secured term loan and establishment of a new $85 million three-year senior secured revolving credit facility, as well as pre-tax gain of $0.1 million related to the change in fair value of the company’s warrant liability and pre-tax net realized investment gains of $0.1 million. The non-GAAP financial measures adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share and adjusted return-on-equity are presented in this release to increase the comparability of financial results between periods. See “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Bradley Shuster, Chairman and CEO of National MI, said, “National MI delivered record second quarter financial results, including record net premiums earned of $61.6 million, record net income of $25.2 million, and record return-on-equity of 16.4%. We continued to grow our high-quality insured portfolio at an industry leading rate and we successfully completed a number of important risk management and financing initiatives. In June, we launched Rate GPS, our Granular Pricing System. Rate GPS is a fully integrated and technology-driven pricing engine that allows us to dynamically consider a far broader and more granular set of risk attributes in our pricing process. Customer adoption has been strong and, as of today, approximately 95% of our customers are delivering loans through the platform. Earlier in the quarter, we refinanced our term loan and secured a debut revolving credit facility. In July, we executed our second Insurance-Linked Notes transaction, which provides us significant PMIERs capital support and insulates National MI from adverse loss development in our insured portfolio.”

-- As of June 30, 2018, the company had primary insurance-in-force of $58.1 billion, up 9% from $53.4 billion at the prior quarter end and up 51% over $38.6 billion as of June 30, 2017. -- Net premiums earned for the quarter were $61.6 million, including $3.1 million attributable to cancellation of single premium policies, which compares with $54.9 million, including $2.8 million related to cancellations, in the prior quarter. Net premiums earned in the second quarter of 2018 were up 63% over net premiums earned of $37.9 million in the same quarter a year ago, which included $3.8 million related to cancellations. -- NIW mix was 88% monthly premium product, which compares with 84% in the prior quarter and 81% in the second quarter of 2017. -- Total underwriting and operating expenses in the second quarter were $29.0 million, including approximately $0.7 million of fees and expenses related to the recently completed Insurance-Linked Notes transaction. This compares with total underwriting and operating expense of $28.5 million in the prior quarter and $28.0 million in the same quarter a year ago, which included approximately $3.1 million of fees and expenses related to the issuance of Insurance-Linked Notes completed in May 2017. -- At quarter-end, cash and investments were $855 million and book equity was $630 million, equal to $9.58 per share. Return on equity for the quarter was 16.4% and adjusted return on equity was 17.8%. -- At quarter-end, the company had total PMIERs available assets of $653 million, which compares with risk-based required assets under PMIERs of $587 million. The PMIERs required assets do not reflect the benefit of the recently completed Insurance-Linked Notes transaction and related excess-of-loss reinsurance coverage, which occurred after the close of the quarter. During the second quarter of 2018, the company contributed $70 million to National Mortgage Insurance Corporation, its primary mortgage insurance subsidiary.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We believe that use of the non-GAAP measures of adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share and adjusted return-on-equity facilitate the evaluation of our fundamental financial performance, thereby providing relevant information to investors. These non-GAAP financial measures align with the way the company’s business performance is evaluated by management. These measures are not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance. These measures have been established in order to increase transparency for the purposes of evaluating our fundamental operating trends and enabling more meaningful comparisons with our peers.

Adjusted pre-tax income is defined as GAAP income before tax, excluding the effects of the gain or loss related to the change in fair value of our warrant liability, periodic costs incurred in connection with capital markets transactions, net realized gains or losses from our investment portfolio, and discrete, non-recurring and non-operating items in the periods in which such items are incurred.

Adjusted net income is defined as GAAP net income excluding the after-tax effects of the gain or loss related to the change in fair value of our warrant liability, periodic costs incurred in connection with capital markets transactions, net realized gains or losses from our investment portfolio, and discrete, non-recurring and non-operating items in the periods in which such items are incurred. Adjustments to components of pre-tax income are tax effected using the applicable federal statutory tax rate for the respective periods.

Adjusted net income per diluted share is calculated in a manner consistent with the accounting standard regarding earnings per share by dividing (i) adjusted net income by (ii) diluted weighted average common shares outstanding, which shares of common stock outstanding and common stock equivalents that would be issuable upon the vesting of service based RSUs, and exercise of vested and unvested stock options and outstanding warrants.

Adjusted return-on-equity is calculated by dividing adjusted net income on an annualized basis by the average shareholders’ equity for the period.

Although adjusted pre-tax income and adjusted net income exclude certain items that have occurred in the past and are expected to occur in the future, the excluded items are: (1) not viewed as part of the operating performance of our primary activities; or (2) impacted by market, economic or regulatory factors and are not necessarily indicative of operating trends, or both. These adjustments, along with the reasons for their treatment, are described below. Trends in the profitability of our fundamental operating activities can be more clearly identified by adjusting for fluctuations in these items. Other companies may calculate these measures differently. Therefore, their measures may not be comparable to those used by us.

(1) Change in fair value of warrant liability. Outstanding warrants at the end of each reporting period are revalued, and any change in fair value is reported in the statements of operations in the period in which the change occurred. The change in the fair value of our warrant liability can vary significantly across periods and is influenced principally by equity market and general economic factors which may not impact or reflect our current period operating results. Trends in our operating performance can be more clearly identified without the fluctuations of the change in fair value of our warrant liability.

(2) Capital markets transaction costs. Capital markets transaction costs result from discretionary activities that are undertaken to improve our debt profile or enhance our capital position through activities such as debt refinancing and capital markets reinsurance transactions.

(3) Net realized investment gains and losses. The recognition of the net realized investment gains or losses can vary significantly across periods as the timing of specific securities sold is highly discretionary and is influenced by the factors as market opportunities, tax and capital profile and overall market cycles.

(4) Infrequent or unusual non-operating items. Income Statement items occurring separately from operating earnings that are not expected to recur in the future. They are the result of unforeseen or uncommon events. Exclusion of these items provides clarity about the impact of special or rare circumstances on current financial performance. An example is income tax expense adjustments due to a re-measurement of the net deferred tax assets in connection with tax reform, which are non-recurring in nature and are not part of our primary operating activities. We did not adjust for any infrequent or unusual non-operating items to calculate the non-GAAP measures presented in this release.
