For the quarter, we generated net income of $268.7 million, an annualized operating ROE of 24.3% and an 8.1% increase in tangible book value per common share plus the change in accumulated dividends. Both the quarter and year were driven by strong underwriting and investment performance, while we continued to invest in our future."

We enter 2014 with a strong balance sheet, some of the highest ratings in the industry, and a flexible operating platform from which to serve our clients and partners."

SEGMENTS

As of December 31, 2013, the Company now has three reportable segments: (1) Catastrophe Reinsurance, which includes catastrophe reinsurance and certain property catastrophe joint ventures managed by the Company's ventures unit, (2) Specialty Reinsurance, which includes specialty reinsurance and certain specialty joint ventures managed by the Company's ventures unit, and (3) Lloyd's, which includes reinsurance and insurance business written through RenaissanceRe Syndicate 1458 ("Syndicate 1458"). Financial information related to the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment and Specialty Reinsurance segment was previously provided in the Company's financial supplements and aggregated together as the Reinsurance segment for GAAP reporting in accordance with FASB ASC Topic Segment Reporting. All prior periods presented have been reclassified to conform to this new presentation.

FOURTH QUARTER 2013 HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Company generated underwriting income of $188.9 million and a combined ratio of 26.4% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $4.3 million and 98.5% in the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. These results were primarily driven by relatively light catastrophe losses during the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 when Storm Sandy occurred and negatively impacted the Company's underwriting results by $127.0 million and added 60.7 percentage points to the combined ratio in that quarter. In addition, the Company recorded favorable development on prior accident years losses of $72.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $36.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily driven by the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment, as discussed further below.
  • Total investment result of $140.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, which includes the sum of net investment income, net realized and unrealized gains on investments and net other-than-temporary impairments, compared to $50.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, was primarily driven by a gain of $73.1 million related to the Company's investment in the common shares of Essent Group Ltd. ("Essent"), combined with higher returns in the remainder of the Company's portfolio of equity investments trading and other investments.
  • Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests of $54.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 increased from $9.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, principally due to an increase in the profitability of DaVinciRe as a result of improved underwriting performance driven by relatively light catastrophe losses during the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

Underwriting Results by Segment

Catastrophe Reinsurance Segment

Gross premiums written in the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment were negative $17.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of $41.4 million, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily driven by $33.9 million of net negative reinstatement premiums from large losses, as a result of reductions in net claims and claim expenses and related reinstatement premium with respect to Storm Sandy, the Thailand Floods which occurred in late 2011 and the Tohoku Earthquake. Excluding the impact of $33.9 million of net negative reinstatement premiums written in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $36.5 million of net positive reinstatement premiums written in the fourth quarter of 2012 from large losses, gross premiums written in the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment were $16.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $29.0 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

Managed catastrophe premiums increased $31.0 million, to $20.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to negative $10.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, net of $34.0 million of net negative reinstatement premiums written in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $37.9 million of net positive reinstatement premiums written in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The Catastrophe Reinsurance segment generated underwriting income of $171.6 million and a combined ratio of negative 12.8% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $11.5 million and 94.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. The $160.1 million increase in underwriting income in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, was driven by relatively light catastrophe losses during the fourth quarter of 2013 resulting in a $167.6 million decrease in current accident year net claims and claim expenses, combined with a $13.9 million decrease in acquisition expenses and a $34.5 million increase in favorable development on prior accident years net claims and claim expenses, partially offset by a $53.1 million decrease in net premiums earned, driven by the net negative reinstatement premiums written in the fourth quarter of 2013 and the net positive reinstatement premiums written in the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease in acquisition expenses is primarily attributable to increases in profit commissions on certain ceded reinsurance contracts the Company has entered into. Included in the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment's current accident year net claims and claim expenses in the fourth quarter of 2013 is a reduction in the estimate ultimate net loss of $13.8 million related to the European Floods which occurred in June 2013. In addition, the net positive impact on the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment's underwriting results from the Company's review of Storm Sandy during the fourth quarter of 2013 was $32.8 million, or 31.1 percentage points on the combined ratio.

The Catastrophe Reinsurance segment experienced $59.0 million of favorable development on prior years reserves in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $24.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily due to $44.5 million, $13.4 million and $5.7 million of aggregate favorable development related to reductions in the expected ultimate net loss for Storm Sandy, the Tohoku Earthquake and the 2011 New Zealand Earthquake, respectively, as reported claims activity on these events came in lower than expected, partially offset by adverse development on the 2010 New Zealand Earthquake of $9.4 million.

Specialty Reinsurance Segment

Gross premiums written in the Specialty Reinsurance segment were $58.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $24.3 million, or 71.3%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, driven by increases across a number of lines of business, most notably the Company's credit related lines of business, and higher quota share premiums.

The Specialty Reinsurance segment generated underwriting income of $23.0 million and a combined ratio of 58.3% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $12.9 million and 69.9% in the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. The $10.2 million increase in underwriting income was driven by a $12.5 million increase in net premiums earned as a result of the increase in gross premiums written, noted above.

The Specialty Reinsurance segment experienced $10.9 million of favorable development on prior years reserves in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $14.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, principally due to reported claims activity coming in lower than expected on prior accident years events.

Lloyd's Segment

Gross premiums written in the Lloyd's segment were $43.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $17.4 million, or 66.4%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily due to continued organic growth within the segment. The Lloyd's segment incurred an underwriting loss of $3.1 million and a combined ratio of 106.3% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to an underwriting loss of $14.5 million and a combined ratio of 140.9% in the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. The decrease in the underwriting loss in the Lloyd's segment primarily reflects the increase in net earned premiums due to the growth in gross premiums written, noted above.

Other Items

  • During the period from October 1, 2013 through October 30, 2013, the Company recorded $37.6 million of net investment income related to the estimated increase in the fair value of Essent. From October 31, 2013 (the date of Essent's initial public offering ("IPO")) through December 31, 2013, the Company recorded $35.5 million of unrealized gains in net realized and unrealized gains on investments in the Company's consolidated statements of operations as its investment in Essent was considered equity investments trading on the Company's consolidated balance sheet as of October 31, 2013 (the date of Essent's IPO). At December 31, 2013, the fair value of the Company's investment in Essent was $121.1 million. The Company has agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to dispose of or hedge any of the common shares of Essent it holds prior to April 28, 2014.
  • The Company has funded Upsilon Reinsurance Fund Opportunities Ltd. ("Upsilon RFO"), formerly known as Upsilon Reinsurance II Ltd., a Bermuda domiciled special purpose insurance vehicle, to create additional reinsurance capacity for the worldwide aggregate retrocessional reinsurance market. Investors (including the Company) have capitalized Upsilon RFO and the fully-collateralized reinsurance limit has been fully deployed. Upsilon RFO is managed by Renaissance Underwriting Managers, Ltd. Upsilon RFO may raise additional capital and provide additional fully-collateralized reinsurance capacity if market opportunities exist.
  • During January 2014, DaVinciRe redeemed a portion of its outstanding shares from all existing DaVinciRe shareholders, including the Company, while a new DaVinciRe shareholder purchased shares in DaVinciRe. The net redemption as a result of these transactions was $300.0 million. The Company's ownership in DaVinciRe subsequent to these transactions is 26.5%, effective January 1, 2014.
  • During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company repurchased an aggregate of 729 thousand common shares in open market transactions and a privately negotiated transaction at an aggregate cost of $66.9 million and at an average share price of $91.78.
  • Subsequent to December 31, 2013 and through the period ended February 3, 2014, the Company repurchased 985 thousand common shares in open market transactions at an aggregate cost of $89.3 million and at an average share price of $90.61.

FULL YEAR 2013 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Gross premiums written increased $53.8 million, or 3.5% in 2013, to $1,605.4 million. Excluding the impact of $24.2 million of net negative reinstatement premiums written from large losses in 2013 and $20.1 million of net positive reinstatement premiums written from large losses in 2012, respectively, gross premiums written increased $98.1 million, or 6.4%, in 2013, driven by continued growth within the Company's Specialty Reinsurance and Lloyd's segments.
  • Underwriting income of $626.7 million and a combined ratio of 43.8% in 2013, compared to $451.5 million and 57.8% in 2012, respectively, was positively impacted by a decrease in net claims and claim expenses of $153.9 million due to lower insured losses in respect of large events. Included in underwriting income for 2013 was $22.9 million and $12.7 million of underwriting losses related to the May 2013 U.S. Tornadoes and the European Floods, respectively, which added a total of 3.5 percentage points to the combined ratio. In comparison, Storm Sandy and Hurricane Isaac resulted in $149.1 million and $26.3 million of underwriting losses in 2012, respectively, which added a total of 19.0 percentage points to the combined ratio. Favorable development on prior accident years was $144.0 million in 2013, compared to $158.0 million in 2012, primarily driven by the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment, as discussed further below.
  • Total investment result was $235.1 million in 2013, which includes the sum of net investment income, net realized and unrealized gains on investments and net other-than-temporary impairments, compared to $329.1 million in 2012. The decrease in the investment result was primarily due to lower total returns on the Company's fixed maturity investment portfolio as a result of a rising interest rate environment in 2013, compared to significant contraction in credit spreads yielding higher returns on the Company's fixed maturity investment portfolio in 2012; partially offset by realized and unrealized gains in the Company's portfolio of equity investments trading of $26.7 million and $42.9 million in 2013, respectively, compared to $Nil and $7.6 million in 2012, respectively, and improved returns in the Company's portfolio of other investments, primarily driven by the Company's investment in the common shares of Essent and, to a lesser extent, the improved global equity markets during 2013. With respect to Essent, during the period from January 1, 2013 through October 30, 2013, the Company recorded $56.9 million of net investment income related to the estimated increase in the fair value of its investment in Essent. From October 31, 2013 (the date of Essent's IPO) through December 31, 2013, the Company recorded $35.5 million of unrealized gains in net realized and unrealized gains on investments in its consolidated statements of operations as its investment in Essent was considered equity investments trading on the Company's consolidated balance sheet as of October 31, 2013 (the date of Essent's IPO). In addition, the Company recognized gains of $31.1 million on investments-related derivatives in 2013 as a result of the increasing interest rates noted above.

Underwriting Results by Segment

Catastrophe Reinsurance Segment

Gross premiums written in the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment decreased by $61.8 million, or 5.2%, to $1,120.4 million in 2013, compared to $1,182.2 million in 2012, primarily reflecting reduced risk-adjusted pricing in the catastrophe markets the Company serves, including the Florida market as a whole, and the non-renewal of a number of contracts during the January and June 2013 renewals, partially offset by some pockets of new demand. In addition, the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment's underwriting results in 2013 were impacted by $65.6 million of gross premiums written related to increased quota share premium and $27.0 million associated with a multi-year transaction booked in the second quarter of 2013; partially offset by negative reinstatement premiums written of $24.1 million, which principally related to decreases in the net claims and claim expenses associated with Storm Sandy, the Tohoku Earthquake and the Thailand Floods. The Company's catastrophe reinsurance premiums are prone to significant volatility due to the timing of contract inception and also due to the business being characterized by a relatively small number of relatively large transactions.

For 2013, managed catastrophe premiums, net of reinstatement premiums written of negative $24.1 million and positive $18.5 million in 2013 and 2012, respectively, totaled $1,246.1 million, a decrease of $27.1 million, or 2.1%, compared to 2012, primarily reflecting reduced risk-adjusted pricing in the catastrophe markets the Company serves, including the Florida market as a whole, and the non-renewal of a number of contracts during the January and June 2013 renewals, partially offset by some pockets of new demand, as noted above.

The Catastrophe Reinsurance segment generated underwriting income of $558.5 million and a combined ratio of 22.8% in 2013, compared to $446.1 million and 42.9% in 2012, respectively. The $112.5 million increase in underwriting income in the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment was driven by relatively light catastrophe losses in 2013 resulting in a $165.8 million decrease in current accident year net claims and claim expenses, combined with a $17.5 million decrease in acquisition expenses, partially offset by a $58.0 million decrease in net premiums earned. The decrease in acquisition expenses is primarily attributable to increases in profit commissions on certain ceded reinsurance contracts the Company enters into.

Included in the underwriting results of the Catastrophe Reinsurance segment in 2013 is $21.9 million and $10.7 million of underwriting losses related to the May 2013 U.S. Tornadoes and the European Floods, respectively.

The Catastrophe Reinsurance segment experienced $102.0 million of favorable development on prior years reserves in 2013, compared to $110.6 million in 2012, primarily due to $44.5 million, $18.0 million, $16.3 million and $10.9 million of aggregate favorable development related to reductions in the expected ultimate net loss for Storm Sandy, the Tohoku Earthquake, the 2008 Hurricanes and the 2011 New Zealand Earthquake, respectively, as reported claims on these events came in lower than expected, partially offset by adverse development on the 2010 New Zealand Earthquake of $11.0 million.

Specialty Reinsurance Segment

Gross premiums written in the Specialty Reinsurance segment increased $49.6 million, or 23.6%, to $259.5 million in 2013, compared to $209.9 million in 2012, primarily due to a number of new contracts and higher quota share premiums. The Company's specialty reinsurance premiums are prone to significant volatility due to the timing of contract inception and also due to the business being characterized by a relatively small number of relatively large transactions.

The Specialty Reinsurance segment generated underwriting income of $73.8 million and a combined ratio of 65.6% in 2013, compared to $34.9 million and 78.8% in 2012, respectively. The $38.8 million increase in underwriting income is primarily due to a $49.6 million increase in net premiums earned as a result of the growth in gross premiums written over the prior twelve months and a $9.6 million decrease in net claims and claim expenses, partially offset by a $17.7 million increase in acquisition expenses due to higher net premiums earned and a higher proportion of quota share reinsurance premiums which have a higher acquisition expense ratio.

The Specialty Reinsurance segment experienced $34.1 million of favorable development on prior year reserves in 2013, compared to $34.1 million in 2012, primarily driven by $10.4 million associated with actuarial assumption changes in the first quarter of 2013, principally in the casualty clash and casualty risk lines of business, which were primarily as a result of revised claim development factors based on actual loss experience, and $23.7 million due to reported claims coming in lower than expected on prior accident years events.

Lloyd's Segment

Gross premiums written in the Lloyd's segment were $226.5 million in 2013, an increase of $66.5 million, or 41.6%, compared to 2012, primarily as a result of continued growth across all lines of business within the segment. The Lloyd's segment incurred an underwriting loss of $5.0 million and a combined ratio of 102.9% in 2013, compared to a $25.8 million underwriting loss and 121.0% in 2012, respectively. The $20.8 million improvement in the underwriting result for the Lloyd's segment is primarily due to the relatively low level of insured catastrophe loss activity during 2013, compared to 2012 which was negatively impacted by Storm Sandy, which resulted in $17.1 million of underwriting losses and increased the combined ratio by 16.2 percentage points.

The favorable development of $8.3 million within our Lloyd's segment in 2013, compared to $16.2 million in 2012, was primarily related to reported claims coming in lower than expected on prior accident years events.

Other Items

  • During 2013, the Company repurchased an aggregate of 2.5 million common shares in open market transactions and a privately negotiated transaction at an aggregate cost of $207.9 million and at an average share price of $84.80.
  • Net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests of $151.1 million in 2013, compared to $148.0 million in 2012, was primarily due to the Company's ownership percentage in DaVinciRe decreasing to 27.3% at December 31, 2013, compared to 30.8% at December 31, 2012, resulting in an increase in the portion of DaVinciRe's net income attributable to noncontrolling interests.
  • Income from discontinued operations was $2.4 million in 2013, compared to a loss from discontinued operations of $16.5 million in 2012. Included in income from discontinued operations in 2013 is trading-related income of $10.5 million, partially offset by an $8.8 million loss on sale of the Company's U.S.-based weather and weather-related energy risk management unit ("REAL") during the third quarter of 2013. In comparison, the loss from discontinued operations of $16.5 million in 2012 was primarily due to REAL experiencing trading losses driven by unusually warm weather experienced in parts of the United Kingdom and the United States, principally during the first quarter of 2012.
  • The Company's corporate expenses increased $17.2 million to $33.6 million in 2013, compared to 2012, primarily due to costs associated with senior management transition changes during the year.

RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. will host a conference call on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) to discuss this release. Live broadcast of the conference call will be available through the "Investor Information - Company Webcasts" section of RenaissanceRe's website at www.renre.com.

RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. is a global provider of reinsurance and insurance. The Company's business consists of three reportable segments: (1) Catastrophe Reinsurance, which includes catastrophe reinsurance and certain property catastrophe joint ventures managed by the Company's ventures unit; (2) Specialty Reinsurance, which includes specialty reinsurance and certain specialty joint ventures managed by the Company's ventures unit; and (3) Lloyd's, which includes reinsurance and insurance business written through RenaissanceRe Syndicate 1458.

Cautionary Statement under "Safe Harbor" Provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: Statements made in this earnings release contain information about the Company's future business prospects. These statements may be considered "forward-looking." These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in or implied by such forward-looking statements. For further information regarding cautionary statements and factors affecting future results, please refer to RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd.'s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Reports on Form 10-K and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

(1) Net positive impact includes the sum of estimates of net claims and claim expenses incurred, earned reinstatement premiums assumed and ceded, profit commissions and redeemable noncontrolling interest. The Company's estimates are based on a review of its potential exposures, preliminary discussions with certain counterparties and catastrophe modeling techniques. Given the magnitude and recent occurrence of this event, delays in receiving claims data, the contingent nature of business interruption and other exposures, potential uncertainties relating to reinsurance recoveries and other uncertainties inherent in loss estimation, meaningful uncertainty remains regarding losses from this event. In addition, a significant portion of the net claims and claim expenses associated with Storm Sandy are concentrated with a few large clients and therefore the loss estimates for this event may vary significantly based on the claims experience of those clients. Accordingly, the Company's actual net negative impact from this event will vary from these preliminary estimates, perhaps materially so. Changes in these estimates will be recorded in the period in which they occur.

Comments on Regulation G

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this Press Release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this Press Release within the meaning of Regulation G. The Company has provided these financial measurements in previous investor communications and the Company's management believes that these measurements are important to investors and other interested persons, and that investors and such other persons benefit from having a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and for the comparison with other companies within the industry. These measures may not, however, be comparable to similarly titled measures used by companies outside of the insurance industry. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these non-GAAP measures in assessing the Company's overall financial performance.

The Company uses "operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" as a measure to evaluate the underlying fundamentals of its operations and believes it to be a useful measure of its corporate performance. "Operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" as used herein differs from "net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders," which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, by the exclusion of net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments from continuing and discontinued operations, net other-than-temporary impairments from continuing operations, and commencing in 2013, also excludes net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments-related derivatives. Prior to 2013, investments-related derivative net realized and unrealized gains and losses were included in net investment income and were also included in the calculation of operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders and related measures. The Company's management believes that "operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" is useful to investors because it more accurately measures and predicts the Company's results of operations by removing the variability arising from fluctuations in the Company's fixed maturity investment portfolio and equity investments trading. The Company also uses "operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" to calculate "operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted" and "operating return on average common equity - annualized". The following is a reconciliation of: 1) net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders to operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders; 2) net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted to operating income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted; and 3) return on average common equity - annualized to operating return on average common equity - annualized:

The Company has also included in this Press Release "managed catastrophe premiums". "Managed catastrophe premiums" is defined as gross catastrophe premiums written by Renaissance Reinsurance and its related joint ventures. "Managed catastrophe premiums" differs from total catastrophe unit gross premiums written, which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, due to the inclusion of catastrophe premiums written on behalf of the Company's joint venture Top Layer Re, which is accounted for under the equity method of accounting and the inclusion of catastrophe premiums written on behalf of the Company's Lloyd's segment. The Company's management believes "managed catastrophe premiums" is useful to investors and other interested parties because it provides a measure of total catastrophe premiums, as applicable, assumed by the Company through its consolidated subsidiaries and related joint ventures.

The Company has also included in this Press Release "tangible book value per common share" and "tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends". "Tangible book value per common share" is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share. "Tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends" is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share, plus accumulated dividends. "Tangible book value per common share" differs from book value per common share, which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, due to the exclusion of goodwill and intangible assets per share. The Company's management believes "tangible book value per common share" and "tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends" are useful to investors because they provide a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of goodwill and intangible assets. The following is a reconciliation of book value per common share to tangible book value per common share and tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends:
