TORONTO, May 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mount Logan Capital Inc. (Cboe Canada: MLC) (“Mount Logan” or the “Company”) announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. All amounts are stated in United States dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

First Quarter 2024 Highlights

  • Total revenue for the asset management segment of the Company of $4.0 million, an increase of $2.1 million, or 109%, as compared to the first quarter of 2023. The increase is primarily due to growth in fees attributable to the inclusion of Ovation management and incentive fees, increase in CLO fees, growth in the Opportunistic Credit Interval Fund, and other sub-advisory activities of Mount Logan. First quarter asset management revenues exclude $1.4 million of management fees associated with Mount Logan’s management of the assets of Ability Insurance Company (“Ability”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, during the first quarter of 2024, which increased by $0.6 million, or 74% as compared to first quarter 2023 of $0.8 million.
  • Total net investment income for the insurance segment was $21.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $1.6 million, or 7.8%, as compared to the first quarter of 2023, driven by an increase in total insurance investment assets and improvements in yield across the investment portfolio attributable to deployment of capital in a higher rate environment. Excluding the funds withheld under reinsurance contracts and Modco, Ability’s net investment income was $14.1 million, an increase of $3.0 million, or 27%, as compared to the first quarter of 2023.
  • 7.9%1 yield on the insurance investment portfolio as of March 31, 2024 reflective of ongoing portfolio and capital optimization across the insurance solutions portfolio alongside the benefit of higher base rates. Excluding the funds withheld under reinsurance contracts and Modco, the yield was 8.5%.
  • Ability’s total assets managed by Mount Logan increased to $616.8 million as of March 31, 2024, up $145.6 million from first quarter 2023 of $471.2 million. As of March 31, 2024, the insurance segment included $1.0 billion in total investment assets, up $138.2 million or 15% from first quarter 2023 investment assets of $904.8 million.
  • Book value of the insurance segment as of March 31, 2024 was $82.6 million, an increase of $56.0 million as compared to $26.6 million for first quarter 2023.  
  • Published SRE disclosure for the insurance segment, generating $9.5 million for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2024. SRE is a non-IFRS financial measure used to assess the insurance segment’s generation of profits excluding the impact of certain market volatility and other one-time, non-core components of insurance segment income (loss). The Company believes this measure is useful to shareholders as it provides additional insight into the underlying economics of the insurance segment.
  • FRE for the asset management segment was $1.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $0.2 million, or 15% compared to the first quarter of March 31, 2023. FRE was $6.5 million for the twelve months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $0.4 million, or 7.1%, compared to the twelve months ended March 31, 2023 of $6.1 million primarily driven by the previously mentioned revenue improvements.  
  • Announced the completion of an $18.8 million capital raise and opportunistic refinancing, representing an important milestone for the business as it simplifies Mount Logan’s capital structure at an attractive fixed-rate over the next 8 years. $13.6 million of the net proceeds of the offering were used to repay all existing indebtedness at Lind Bridge L.P., a wholly owned subsidiary of Mount Logan, which had previously been raised to support direct growth investment into Ability. The balance of the proceeds of the offering are being used for general corporate purposes, primarily supporting the Company’s working capital position, and paying outstanding transaction fees and expenses.

Subsequent Events

  • Declared a shareholder distribution in the amount of C$0.02 per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, payable on May 31, 2024 to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 22, 2024. This cash dividend marks the nineteenth consecutive quarter of the Company issuing a C$0.02 distribution to its shareholders. This dividend is designated by the Company as an eligible dividend for the purpose of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and any similar provincial or territorial legislation. An enhanced dividend tax credit applies to eligible dividends paid to Canadian residents.

Management Commentary

  • Ted Goldthorpe, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Mount Logan stated, “We are excited to announce our first quarter 2024 results, which demonstrate the earnings power of both our asset management and insurance segments. Fee Related Earnings, or FRE, of the asset management segment was up significantly year-over-year and highlights the growing profitability of our asset management business.  Additionally, today we published a new non-IFRS metric, Spread Related Earnings, or SRE, which highlights the profitability of our insurance segment and provides additional information to enable shareholders to better understand the financial performance of our insurance segment.”

_______________________________

1The yield is calculated based on the net investment income excluding reinsured portfolio income less management fees paid to Mount Logan divided by the average of investments in financial assets for the current and prior period, and then is annualized.

Selected Financial Highlights

  • Total Capital of the Company was $147.1 million at March 31, 2024, an increase of $17.6 million as compared to December 31, 2023. Total capital consists of debt obligations and total shareholders’ equity.
  • Consolidated net income(loss) before taxes was $13.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of $42.3 million from $(29.2 million) for the first quarter 2023. The increase is due to increases in risk-adjusted market interest rates, which resulted in lower net insurance finance expense.
  •  Basic Earnings per share (“EPS”) was $0.51 for the three months ended March 31, 2024, an increase of
    $1.84 from $(1.33) for the first quarter 2023. The increase in EPS resulted primarily from an increase in the net insurance finance income in the first quarter 2024 compared to the first quarter 2023. The increase in net insurance finance income in the first quarter 2024 was attributable to changes in risk-adjusted market interest rates.
  • Adjusted basic EPS was $0.54 for the first quarter 2024, an increase of $1.84 from $(1.30) for the first quarter 2023.

Spread Related Earnings (“SRE”)

Effective March 31, 2024, the Company has introduced a new non-IFRS measure, Spread Related Earnings (“SRE”).
The Company uses SRE to assess the performance of the insurance segment, excluding the impact of certain market volatility and other one-time, non-core components of insurance segment income (loss). Excluded items under SRE are investment gains (losses), effects of discount rates and other financial variables on the value of insurance obligations (which is a component of “net insurance finance income/(expense)”), other income and certain general, administrative & other expenses. The Company believes this measure is useful to shareholders as it provides additional insight into the underlying economics of the insurance segment, as further discussed below.

For the insurance segment, SRE equals the sum of (i) the net investment income on the insurance segment’s net invested assets (excluding investment income earned on funds held under reinsurance contracts) less (ii) cost of funds (as described below) and (iii) certain operating expenses.

Cost of funds includes the impact of interest accretion on insurance and investment contract liabilities and amortization of losses recognized for new insurance contracts that are deemed onerous at initial recognition. It also includes experience adjustments which represents the difference between actual and expected cashflows and includes the impact of certain changes to non-financial assumptions.

The Company reconciles SRE to net income (loss) before tax from its insurance segment activities, as follows:

Loss on onerous contracts are part of Insurance service expense.

(7) Represents certain costs incurred by the insurance segment for purposes of IFRS reporting but not the day to day operations of the insurance company.

The following table presents SRE, the performance measure of the insurance segment:

Spread related earnings (“SRE”) was $9.5 million for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2024 compared with ($11.8) million for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2023, an increase of $21.2 million. SRE increased year over year due to increased investment income, lower cost of funds and other operating expenses. Investment income increased primarily due to an increase in total insurance investment assets and improvements in yield across the investment portfolio attributable to deployment of capital in a higher rate environment. Cost of funds decreased primarily because of one-time benefit of $4.8 million in first quarter of 2024 as a result of an in-force update to Long Term Care business.

SRE as a percentage of average net invested assets was 1.7% for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2024 compared with (2.7)% for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2023.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2024, the asset management segment had $65.5 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding, of which $33.8 million had a fixed rate and $38 million had a floating rate. As of March 31, 2024, the insurance segment had $14.3 million (par value) of borrowings outstanding. Liquid assets, including high-quality assets that are marketable, can be pledged as security for borrowings, and can be converted to cash in a time frame that meets liquidity and funding requirements. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the total liquid assets of the Company were as follows:

($ in Thousands)

As at March 31, 2024   December 31, 2023
Cash and cash equivalents $ 67,850   $ 90,220
Restricted cash posted as collateral   12,253    
Investments   627,216     643,578
Management fee receivable   2,819     2,599
Receivable for investments sold   51     6,511
Accrued interest and dividend receivable   20,229     19,340
Total liquid assets $ 730,418   $ 762,248
           

The Company defines working capital as the sum of cash, restricted cash, investments that mature within one year of the reporting date, management fees receivable, receivables for investments sold, accrued interest and dividend receivables, and premium receivables, less the sum of debt obligations, payables for investments purchased, amounts due to affiliates, reinsurance liabilities, and other liabilities that are payable within one year of the reporting date.

As at March 31, 2024, the Company had working capital of $203.0 million, reflecting current assets of $212.1 million, offset by current liabilities of $9.1 million, as compared with working capital of $183.4 million as at December 31, 2023, reflecting current assets of $230.8 million, offset by current liabilities of $47.4 million. The increase in working capital is primarily driven by increased cash in the Insurance segment due to premium growth through the reinsurance of MYGA.  The cash reported and generated through insurance activities in the Insurance segment cannot be used at the Issuer level for working capital purposes without insurance regulatory approvals. 

Interest Rate Risk

The Company has obligations to policyholders and other debt obligations that expose it to interest rate risk.  The Company also owns debt assets and interest rate swaps that are exposed to interest rate risk.  The fair value of these obligations and assets may change if base rate changes in interest rates occur.

The following table summarizes the potential impact on net assets of hypothetical base rate changes in interest rates assuming a parallel shift in the yield curve, with all other variables remaining constant.

As at March 31, 2024   December 31, 2023  
50 basis point increase(1) $ 13,923   $ 20,186
