[February 12, 2018]

Brighthouse Financial Announces Fourth Quarter 2017 Results


Brighthouse Financial, Inc. ("Brighthouse Financial") (Nasdaq: BHF) announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.


Fourth Quarter 2017 Results

The company reported net income of $668 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, or $5.58 on a per share basis, compared to a net loss of $1,765 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The company ended the fourth quarter of 2017 with stockholders' equity ("book value") of $14.5 billion, or $121.19 on a per share basis, and book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI"), of $13.1 billion, or $109.71 on a per share basis.

For the fourth quarter of 2017, the company reported adjusted earnings* (previously reported as operating earnings) of $992 million, or $8.28 on a per share basis. Results for the fourth quarter included a $947 million favorable impact, or $7.91 on a per share basis, primarily related to the re-measurement of the company's net deferred tax liability due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("tax reform") during the quarter. Excluding the impact of tax reform, adjusted earnings for the quarter would have been $45 million, or $0.37 on a per share basis.

Adjusted earnings for the quarter also included $152 million of net unfavorable notable items, or $1.27 on a per share basis, including:

  • $53 million in unfavorable reserve adjustments from recaptured business, partially offset by reserve refinements, in the company's universal life with secondary guarantees ("ULSG") book of business;
  • $47 million in establishment costs related to planned technology and branding investments;
  • $38 million increase in reserves related to certain legacy non-retail, group annuity contracts administered by the company's former parent; and
  • $14 million unfavorable impact from tax items related to the company's separation from its former parent.

Annuity sales increased 26 percent quarter-over-quarter and 25 percent sequentially, primarily driven by sales of Shield annuities, which increased 74 percent quarter-over-quarter and 22 percent sequentially.

"We are pleased with the sales performance of our annuity products in the quarter, and with the progress we have made in building Brighthouse Financial into a standalone company and a recognizable brand," commented Eric Steigerwalt, president and chief executive officer, Brighthouse Financial. "As we continue to execute on our strategy in 2018, we believe our sales momentum and focus on expense management will serve as positive drivers towards achieving our goals."

(1) Annuities sales in the fourth quarter of 2017 include $203 million in sales of a fixed indexed annuity product sold by MassMutual, representing 90% of gross sales of that product.
 

Annuities

Adjusted earnings in the Annuities segment were $208 million in the current quarter, compared to adjusted earnings of $292 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 and adjusted earnings of $355 million in the third quarter of 2017.

There were no notable items in the current quarter. The fourth quarter of 2016 included $46 million of favorable notable items and the third quarter of 2017 included $142 million of favorable notable items. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, adjusted earnings reflect higher expenses and lower derivative net investment income. On a sequential basis, adjusted earnings reflect higher expenses.

As mentioned above, overall annuity sales increased 26 percent quarter-over-quarter and 25 percent sequentially, primarily driven by strong sales of Shield annuities, which increased 74 percent quarter-over-quarter and 22 percent sequentially.

Life

Adjusted earnings in the Life segment were $5 million in the current quarter, compared to an adjusted loss of $24 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 and adjusted earnings of $6 million in the third quarter of 2017.

There were no notable items in either the current quarter or in the fourth quarter of 2016. The third quarter of 2017 included $17 million of unfavorable notable items. Quarter-over-quarter life insurance product underwriting results, in the aggregate, were flat, reflecting elevated mortality that was offset by lower reinsurance costs. Resegmentation activity between the Life and Run-off segments in the fourth quarter of 2016 makes quarter-over-quarter segment-level analysis between Life and Run-off less meaningful this period. On a sequential basis, adjusted earnings reflect unfavorable underwriting due to elevated mortality.

Life insurance sales were down, consistent with the company's strategy of migrating to simpler life insurance solutions and away from products such as participating whole life. The company expects life insurance sales to remain at similar levels over the next 12 to 18 months, as it revamps its life insurance business.

Run-off

The adjusted loss in the Run-off segment was $80 million in the current quarter, compared to an adjusted loss of $349 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 and adjusted earnings of $83 million in the third quarter of 2017.

The current quarter contains $91 million of unfavorable notable items, while the fourth quarter of 2016 included $399 million in unfavorable notable items. The third quarter of 2017 included $9 million in favorable notable items. As mentioned above, quarter-over-quarter life insurance product underwriting results, in the aggregate, were flat, reflecting elevated mortality that was offset by lower reinsurance costs. Resegmentation activity between the Life and Run-off segments in the fourth quarter of 2016 makes quarter-over-quarter segment-level analysis between Life and Run-off less meaningful this period. On a sequential basis, adjusted earnings reflect unfavorable underwriting due to elevated mortality coupled with higher expenses.

Corporate & Other

Corporate & Other had adjusted earnings of $859 million in the current quarter, compared to adjusted earnings of $20 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 and an adjusted loss of $1,120 million in the third quarter of 2017.

The current quarter contains $886 million of favorable notable items, primarily due to tax reform, while the fourth quarter of 2016 did not include notable items. The third quarter of 2017 included $1,104 million in unfavorable notable items, primarily related to a non-cash tax expense triggered prior to separation, recognized by the company's former parent. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, adjusted earnings reflect higher corporate expenses and lower net investment income. On a sequential basis, adjusted earnings reflect higher taxes.

Net Investment Income

On a quarter-over-quarter basis, net investment income decreased $16 million to $769 million, primarily from a reduction in the size of the securities lending program and a lower average asset base. On a sequential basis, net investment income in the quarter reflected a slight increase of $8 million.

The net investment income yield was 4.30 percent during the quarter.

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Disclosures

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosures

In this news release, we present certain measures of our performance that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"). We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the understanding of our performance by highlighting the results of operations and the underlying profitability drivers of our business.

The following non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed as substitutes for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP:

Non-GAAP financial measures:

                             

Comparable GAAP financial measures:

adjusted earnings net income (loss)
adjusted revenues revenues
adjusted expenses expenses
adjusted earnings per common share earnings per share
adjusted return on equity return on equity
 

Reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable historical GAAP measures are included in this news release. These adjusted measures were previously referred to as operating measures.

Our definitions of the non-GAAP and other financial measures discussed in this news release may differ from those used by other companies. For example, as indicated below, we exclude guaranteed minimum income benefit ("GMIB") revenues and related embedded derivatives gains (losses) as well as GMIB benefits and associated DAC and value of business acquired ("VOBA") offsets from adjusted earnings, thereby excluding substantially all guaranteed minimum living benefit ("GMLB") activity from adjusted earnings.

Adjusted Earnings, Adjusted Revenues and Adjusted Expenses

Adjusted earnings, which may be positive or negative, is used by management to evaluate performance, allocate resources and facilitate comparisons to industry results. This financial measure focuses on our primary businesses principally by excluding the impact of market volatility, which could distort trends, as well as businesses that have been or will be sold or exited by us, referred to as divested businesses.

Provided below are the adjustments to GAAP revenues and GAAP expenses used to calculate adjusted revenues and adjusted expenses, respectively. Adjusted earnings, as presented in this news release, reflects adjusted revenues less adjusted expenses, both net of income tax.

The following are significant items excluded from total revenues, net of income tax, in calculating the adjusted revenues component of adjusted earnings:

  • Net investment gains (losses);
  • Net derivative gains (losses) except: earned income on derivatives that are hedges of investments or that are used to replicate certain investments, but do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment ("Investment Hedge Adjustments"); and
  • Amortization of unearned revenue related to net investment gains (loss) and net derivative gains (losses) and certain variable annuity GMIB fees ("GMIB Fees").(1)

The following are significant items excluded from total expenses, net of income tax, in calculating the adjusted expenses component of adjusted earnings:

  • Amounts associated with benefits and hedging costs related to GMIBs ("GMIB Costs");(1)
  • Amounts associated with periodic crediting rate adjustments based on the total return of a contractually referenced pool of assets and market value adjustments associated with surrenders or terminations of contracts ("Market Value Adjustments"); and
  • Amortization of DAC and VOBA related to (i) net investment gains (losses), (ii) net derivative gains (losses), (iii) GMIB Fees and GMIB Costs and (iv) Market Value Adjustments.(1)

The tax impact of the adjustments mentioned is calculated net of the U.S. statutory tax rate, which could differ from our effective tax rate.

Consistent with GAAP guidance for segment reporting, adjusted earnings is also our GAAP measure of segment performance.

Adjusted Earnings per Common Share and Adjusted Return on Equity

Adjusted earnings per common share and adjusted return on equity are measures used by management to evaluate the execution of our business strategy and align such strategy with our shareholders' interests.

Adjusted earnings per common share is defined as adjusted earnings for the period divided by the weighted average number of fully diluted shares of common stock outstanding for the period.

Adjusted return on equity is defined as total annual adjusted earnings on a four quarter trailing basis, divided by the simple average of the most recent five quarters of total stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI.

(1) Collectively, amounts related to GMIB, excluding amounts recorded in NDGL, may be referred to as "GMIB adjustments."


Other Financial Disclosures

Book Value per Common Share, excluding AOCI

Brighthouse uses the term "book value" to refer to "stockholders' equity." Book value per common share is defined as ending stockholders' equity, including AOCI, divided by ending common shares outstanding - diluted. Book value per common share, excluding AOCI, is defined as ending stockholders' equity, excluding AOCI, divided by ending common shares outstanding - diluted.

Sales

Statistical sales information for Life sales is calculated using the LIMRA definition of sales for core direct sales, excluding company-sponsored internal exchanges, corporate-owned life insurance, bank-owned life insurance, and private placement variable universal life insurance. Annuity sales consist of 100 percent of direct statutory premiums, except for fixed indexed annuity sales distributed through MassMutual that consist of 90 percent of gross sales. Annuity sales exclude company sponsored internal exchanges. These sales statistics do not correspond to revenues under GAAP, but are used as relevant measures of business activity.

Holding company liquid assets

Holding company liquid assets include liquid assets in Brighthouse Financial, Inc., Brighthouse Holdings, LLC, and Brighthouse Services, LLC. Liquid assets include cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and publicly-traded securities excluding assets that are pledged or otherwise committed. Assets pledged or otherwise committed include amounts received in connection with derivatives and collateral financing arrangements.


Basis of Presentation

The information presented in this news release is derived from the consolidated financial statements of Brighthouse Financial, Inc. for periods subsequent to the separation from MetLife, Inc. that occurred on August 4, 2017, and is derived from the combined financial information of the MetLife U.S. Retail Separation Business for periods prior to the separation. The combined financial information was prepared in connection with the separation of a substantial portion of MetLife, Inc.'s former Retail segment as well as certain portions of its former Corporate Benefit Funding segment, and presents the combined results of operations and financial condition of certain former direct and indirect subsidiaries and certain of its current and former affiliates.


Forward-Looking Statements

This news release may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give expectations or forecasts of future events. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "will," "intend," "plan," "believe" and other words and terms of similar meaning, or are tied to future periods, in connection with a discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, statements regarding the separation from MetLife, including the expected benefits thereof, the recapitalization actions, including the expected benefits thereof, prospective services or products, future performance or results of current and anticipated services or products, sales efforts, expenses, the outcome of contingencies such as legal proceedings, trends in operations and financial results.

Any or all forward-looking statements may turn out to be wrong. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties. Many such factors will be important in determining the actual future results of Brighthouse, its subsidiaries and affiliates. These statements are based on current expectations and the current economic environment. They involve a number of risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. These statements are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements due to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors. Although it is not possible to identify all of these risks and factors, they include, among others: differences between actual experience and actuarial assumptions and the effectiveness of our actuarial models; higher risk management costs and exposure to increased counterparty risk due to guarantees within certain of our products; the effectiveness of our exposure management strategy and the impact of such strategy on net income volatility and negative effects on our statutory capital; the additional reserves we will be required to hold against our variable annuities as a result of actuarial guidelines; a sustained period of low equity market prices and interest rates that are lower than those we assumed when we issued our variable annuity products; our degree of leverage following the separation due to indebtedness incurred in connection with the separation; the effect adverse capital and credit market conditions may have on our ability to meet liquidity needs and our access to capital; the impact of changes in regulation and in supervisory and enforcement policies on our insurance business or other operations; the effectiveness of our risk management policies and procedures; the availability of reinsurance and the ability of our counterparties to our reinsurance or indemnification arrangements to perform their obligations thereunder; heightened competition, including with respect to service, product features, scale, price, actual or perceived financial strength, claims-paying ratings, credit ratings, e-business capabilities and name recognition; changes in accounting standards, practices and/or policies applicable to us; the ability of our insurance subsidiaries to pay dividends to us, and our ability to pay dividends to our shareholders; our ability to market and distribute our products through distribution channels; the impact of the separation on our business and profitability due to MetLife's strong brand and reputation, the increased costs related to replacing arrangements with MetLife with those of third parties and incremental costs as a public company; whether the operational, strategic and other benefits of the separation can be achieved, and our ability to implement our business strategy; whether all or any portion of the separation tax consequences are not as expected, leading to material additional taxes or material adverse consequences to tax attributes booked to us; the uncertainty of the outcome of any disputes with MetLife over tax-related matters and agreements including the potential of outcomes adverse to us that could cause us to owe MetLife material tax reimbursements or payments; the impact on our business structure, profitability, cost of capital and flexibility due to restrictions we have agreed to that preserve the tax-free treatment of certain parts of the separation; the potential material negative tax impact of proposed legislation that could decrease the value of our tax attributes, lead to increased RBC requirements and cause other cash expenses, such as reserves, to increase materially; whether the distribution will qualify for non-recognition treatment for U.S. federal income tax purposes and potential indemnification to MetLife if the distribution does not so qualify; our ability to attract and retain key personnel; and other factors described from time to time in documents that we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

For the reasons described above, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements, which should also be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements included and the risks, uncertainties and other factors identified in the Preliminary Information Statement of Brighthouse Financial, Inc., subject to completion, dated June 30, 2017 included as Exhibit 99.1 to Amendment No. 5 to Brighthouse Financial, Inc.'s Registration Statement on Form 10, filed with the SEC on June 30, 2017 and in Brighthouse Financial, Inc.'s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, filed with the SEC on November 9, 2017, including under the captions "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" and "Risk Factors."

Please consult any further disclosures Brighthouse Financial, Inc. makes on related subjects in reports to the SEC.
