COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)– State Auto Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:STFC) today reported a second quarter 2019 net loss of $6.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net income of $6.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the same 2018 period. Net loss from operations1 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.33 versus $0.08 for the same 2018 period.

For the first six months of 2019, STFC had net income of $43.2 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the same 2018 period. Net loss from operations1 per diluted share for the first six months of 2019 was $0.01 versus net earnings from operations1 per diluted share of $0.08 for the same 2018 period.

GAAP Operating Results

STFC’s GAAP combined ratio for the second quarter 2019 was 111.4 compared to 107.0 for the same 2018 period. Catastrophe losses during the second quarter 2019 accounted for 15.4 points of the 76.3 total loss ratio points, or $47.4 million, versus 12.2 points of the total 70.8 loss ratio points, or $37.5 million, for the same period in 2018. Non-catastrophe losses and ALAE during the second quarter 2019 included 5.5 points of favorable development relating to prior years, or $17.1 million, versus 5.9 points of favorable development, or $18.1 million, for the same period in 2018.

STFC’s GAAP combined ratio for the first six months of 2019 was 105.6 compared to 104.8 for the same 2018 period. Catastrophe losses for the first six months of 2019 accounted for 10.7 points of the 70.3 total loss ratio points, or $65.1 million, versus 7.6 points of the total 69.1 loss ratio points, or $47.3 million, for the same period in 2018. Non-catastrophe losses and ALAE for the first six months of 2019 included 6.2 points of favorable development relating to prior years, or $38.0 million, versus 5.5 points of favorable development, or $34.1 million, for the same period in 2018.

SAP Personal and Commercial Operating Results

The exit from our specialty insurance business resulted in the elimination of specialty insurance as a reportable segment as it is no longer material to our results. Specialty results, labeled as “specialty run-off,” are included in the SAP Insurance Segment Results tables below to enable reconciliation to total underwriting results.

Net written premium for the second quarter 2019 increased 11.6% compared to the same period in 2018. By insurance segment, net written premium for the personal and commercial segments increased 10.8% and 12.8%, respectively. The increase in the personal segment was primarily due to (i) new business growth and rate increases in homeowners and other personal, and (ii) rate increases in personal auto partially offset by lower retention. The increase in the commercial segment was led by new business growth in commercial auto and middle market commercial. The improvements were partially offset by a decrease in net written premiums in workers’ compensation due to continued intense competition in this market.

Net written premium for the first six months of 2019 increased 10.5% compared to the same period in 2018. Net written premium for the personal and commercial segments increased 11.2% and 9.4%, respectively. The trends in the personal and commercial net written premiums are due to the same factors discussed above for the second quarter.

The SAP personal and commercial segments’ combined ratio2 for the second quarter 2019 was 109.9 compared to 104.7 for the same 2018 period. Catastrophe losses during the second quarter 2019 accounted for 14.4 points of the total 76.5 loss ratio points, or $44.2 million, versus 13.4 points of the total 70.1 loss ratio points, or $37.7 million, for the same period in 2018. Non-catastrophe losses and ALAE during the second quarter 2019 included 4.7 points of favorable development relating to prior years, or $14.3 million, versus 7.2 points of favorable development, or $20.2 million, for the same period in 2018.

The SAP personal and commercial segments’ combined ratio for the first six months of 2019 was 104.9 compared to 103.0 for the same 2018 period. Catastrophe losses during the second quarter 2019 accounted for 10.2 points of the total 70.2 loss ratio points, or $61.4 million, versus 8.6 points of the total 68.3 loss ratio points, or $47.5 million, for the same period in 2018. Non-catastrophe losses and ALAE during the second quarter 2019 included 6.2 points of favorable development relating to prior years, or $38.0 million, versus 6.6 points of favorable development, or $36.5 million, for the same period in 2018.

Book Value and Return on Equity

STFC’s book value increased to $21.07 per share as of June 30, 2019, compared to $20.67 on March 31, 2019. The increase in book value was driven by increases in the market value of our investment portfolio.

Return on stockholders’ equity for the 12 months ended June 30, 2019, was 6.0% compared to (1.3)% for the 12 months ended June 30, 2018.

STFC’s Chairman, President and CEO
Mike LaRocco commented on the quarter as follows:

“The results for the quarter were worse than expected, but this is not unusual for the second quarter. Our greatest CAT and non-cat weather exposure comes during the second quarter, and both had significant impact. Additionally, favorable development of prior accident year’s non-cat loss and allocated loss adjustment expense reserves was less this quarter. Our year-to-date results eliminate some of this volatility, giving a clear picture of overall performance. While through six months of 2019 favorable development is down, our current accident year non-cat loss and allocated loss adjustment expense ratio continued to improve.

“Key to our continued progress is becoming a more efficient organization. As our significant investment in technology continues to deliver, our path to competitive expense ratios has become clear by means of efficient growth through our Connect platform.

“In personal lines, our largest line, personal auto, remains profitable and growing year to date. However, growth in personal auto has slowed. While some of this is due to aggressive rate reduction by our competition, we believe we can regain momentum in auto during the second half of the year. In homeowners, seasonal weather drove a poor underwriting result, while growth in the line remains strong. We’re optimistic that this line can profitably grow.

“In commercial lines, we’re beginning to see the impact of the rollout of our digital only technology and efforts to improve efficiency, leading to improvement in the expense ratio. Overall growth in the segment is strong and momentum is building.”

For STFC, this amounted to income of $0.19 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2019 and income of $1.01 year-to-date 2019 versus income of $0.22 per diluted share for the second quarter 2018 and income of $0.01 year-to-date 2018.
