  • Principal Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results

    August 6, 2019 by Principal Financial Group

    DES MOINES, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Principal Financial Group® (Nasdaq: PFG) today announced results for second quarter 2019.

    • Net income attributable to PFG for second quarter 2019 of $386.3 million, compared to $456.6 million for second quarter 2018. Net income per diluted share of $1.37 for second quarter 2019 compared to $1.58 in the prior year quarter. Second quarter 2018 net income benefited from a $99.5 million after-tax gain related to a sale of an equity method investment.
    • Non-GAAP operating earnings for second quarter 2019 of $427.1 million, compared to $391.4 million for second quarter 2018. Non-GAAP operating earnings per diluted share of $1.52 for second quarter 2019 compared to $1.35 for second quarter 2018.
    • Quarterly common stock dividend of $0.55 per share for third quarter 2019 was authorized by the company’s Board of Directors, bringing the trailing twelve-month dividend to $2.17 per share, a 6 percent increase compared to the prior year trailing twelve-month period. The dividend will be payable on Sept. 27, 2019, to shareholders of record as of Sept. 5, 2019.

    “I’m pleased with our results for the quarter and first six months of the year,” said Dan Houston, chairman, president and CEO of Principal. “We delivered $427 million of non-GAAP operating earnings in the second quarter, an increase of 9 percent compared to the prior year quarter, despite ongoing revenue pressures and meaningful investments for long-term growth. Compared to year-end 2018, we’ve increased assets under management by nearly $70 billion, or 11 percent.”

    “We continue to create long-term shareholder value through our balanced approach to capital deployment,” added Houston. “In the first half of the year, we returned $430 million to shareholders through common stock dividends and share repurchases. Additionally, during the second quarter we committed $1.2 billion to acquire the Wells Fargo Institutional Retirement & Trust business. The acquisition, which closed on July 1st, enables us to further capitalize on one of the largest opportunities in financial services – the U.S. retirement savings and retirement income markets. It essentially doubles the size of our U.S. retirement business, but more importantly, it improves our ability to serve customers, reinforces our commitment to the retirement industry, and enables us to create new value in the marketplace by combining the strengths of both business models and teams.”

    Other second quarter highlights

    • Morningstar investment performance2 improved from first quarter 2019, with 57 percent of Principal’s investment options above median on a one-year basis, 68 percent on a three-year basis and 83 percent on a five-year basis. 88 percent of fund level AUM had a 4 or 5 star rating.
    • We continue to execute on our accelerated investment in digital business strategies as we intensify our focus on the customer experience, direct to consumer offerings and our use of data science in investment research. As expected, some benefits are beginning to emerge.
    • Retirement and Income Solutions (RIS) – Fee sales were $4.1 billion and net cash flow was $1.4 billion, reflecting a 7 percent increase in recurring deposits from the prior year quarter. Coupled with strong asset appreciation, end of period account values increased nearly $20.0 billion, or 9 percent compared to a year ago, to $249.1 billion.
    • RIS-Spread account values were $47.7 billion, a 12 percent increase over the prior year quarter. Second quarter sales were $2.0 billion including $0.9 billion of pension risk transfer sales.
    • Principal Global Investors (PGI) pre-tax return on operating revenues less pass-through commissions3 was 36.2 percent.
    • Principal International (PI) generated net cash flow of $0.6 billion, marking its 43rd consecutive quarter of positive net cash flow.
    • Specialty Benefits premium and fees4 increased 8 percent compared to the year ago quarter driven by strong retention and sales.
    • Individual Life sales increased 12 percent over the year ago quarter with 58 percent of sales from the business market.
    • Continued strong capital position as we committed and deployed $1.4 billion of capital in second quarter 2019, including:
      • $1.2 billion to acquire the Wells Fargo Institutional Retirement & Trust business and
      • $150.4 million of common stock dividends with the $0.54 per share common dividend paid in the second quarter.

    Forward looking and cautionary statements
    Certain statements made by the company which are not historical facts may be considered forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements as to non-GAAP operating earnings, net income available to PFG, net cash flow, realized and unrealized gains and losses, capital and liquidity positions, sales and earnings trends, and management’s beliefs, expectations, goals and opinions. The company does not undertake to update these statements, which are based on a number of assumptions concerning future conditions that may ultimately prove to be inaccurate. Future events and their effects on the company may not be those anticipated, and actual results may differ materially from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements. The risks, uncertainties and factors that could cause or contribute to such material differences are discussed in the company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2018, and in the company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, filed by the company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, as updated or supplemented from time to time in subsequent filings. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation: adverse capital and credit market conditions may significantly affect the company’s ability to meet liquidity needs, access to capital and cost of capital; conditions in the global capital markets and the economy generally; volatility or declines in the equity, bond or real estate markets; changes in interest rates or credit spreads or a sustained low interest rate environment; the company’s investment portfolio is subject to several risks that may diminish the value of its invested assets and the investment returns credited to customers; the company’s valuation of investments and the determination of the amount of allowances and impairments taken on such investments may include methodologies, estimations and assumptions that are subject to differing interpretations; any impairments of or valuation allowances against the company’s deferred tax assets; the company’s actual experience for insurance and annuity products could differ significantly from its pricing and reserving assumptions; the pattern of amortizing the company’s DAC and other actuarial balances on its universal life-type insurance contracts, participating life insurance policies and certain investment contracts may change; changes in laws, regulations or accounting standards; the company may not be able to protect its intellectual property and may be subject to infringement claims; the company’s ability to pay stockholder dividends and meet its obligations may be constrained by the limitations on dividends Iowa insurance laws impose on Principal Life; litigation and regulatory investigations; from time to time the company may become subject to tax audits, tax litigation or similar proceedings, and as a result it may owe additional taxes, interest and penalties in amounts that may be material; applicable laws and the company’s certificate of incorporation and by-laws may discourage takeovers and business combinations that some stockholders might consider in their best interests; competition, including from companies that may have greater financial resources, broader arrays of products, higher ratings and stronger financial performance; technological and societal changes may disrupt the company’s business model and impair its ability to retain existing customers, attract new customers and maintain its profitability; a downgrade in the company’s financial strength or credit ratings; client terminations, withdrawals or changes in investor preferences; inability to attract and retain qualified employees and sales representatives and develop new distribution sources; an interruption in telecommunication, information technology or other systems, or a failure to maintain the confidentiality, integrity or availability of data residing on such systems; international business risks; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; risks arising from participation in joint ventures; the company may need to fund deficiencies in its “Closed Block” assets; the company’s reinsurers could default on their obligations or increase their rates; risks arising from acquisitions of businesses; and loss of key vendor relationships or failure of a vendor to protect information of our customers or employees.

    Use of Non-GAAP financial measures
    The company uses a number of non-GAAP financial measures that management believes are useful to investors because they illustrate the performance of normal, ongoing operations, which is important in understanding and evaluating the company’s financial condition and results of operations. They are not, however, a substitute for U.S. GAAP financial measures. Therefore, the company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure at the end of the release. The company adjusts U.S. GAAP measures for items not directly related to ongoing operations. However, it is possible these adjusting items have occurred in the past and could recur in future reporting periods. Management also uses non-GAAP measures for goal setting, as a basis for determining employee and senior management awards and compensation and evaluating performance on a basis comparable to that used by investors and securities analysts.

    Management uses non-GAAP operating earnings, which is a financial measure that excludes the effect of net realized capital gains and losses, as adjusted, and other after-tax adjustments the company believes are not indicative of overall operating trends, for goal setting, as a basis for determining employee and senior management awards and compensation, and evaluating performance on a basis comparable to that used by investors and securities analysts. Note: it is possible these adjusting items have occurred in the past and could recur in future reporting periods. While these items may be significant components in understanding and assessing our consolidated financial performance, management believes the presentation of non-GAAP operating earnings enhances the understanding of results of operations by highlighting earnings attributable to the normal, ongoing operations of the company’s businesses.

    1 Use of non-GAAP financial measures is discussed in this release after segment results. Non-GAAP operating earnings for total company is after tax.
    2 Represents the percentage of Principal actively managed mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), insurance separate accounts, and collective investment trusts (CITs) in the top two Morningstar quartiles. Excludes Money Market, Stable Value, Liability Driven Investment, Hedge Fund Separate Account and US Property Separate Account.
    3 Pre-tax return on operating revenues less pass-through commissions = pre-tax operating earnings, adjusted for noncontrolling interest divided by operating revenues less pass-through commissions.
    4 Premium and fees = premiums and other considerations plus fees and other revenues.
    5 Pre-tax operating earnings = operating earnings before income taxes and after noncontrolling interest.
    6 Net revenue = operating revenues less benefits, claims and settlement expenses less dividends to policyholders.
    7 Pre-tax return on net revenue = pre-tax operating earnings divided by net revenue.
    8 The company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures at the end of the release. The company has determined this measure is more representative of underlying operating revenues growth for PGI as it removes commissions that are collected through fee revenue and passed through expenses with no impact to pre-tax operating earnings.
    9 Combined net revenue: net revenue for all PI companies at 100 percent less pass-through commissions. The company has determined combined net revenue (at PFG share) is more representative of underlying net revenue growth for PI as it reflects our proportionate share of consolidated and equity method subsidiaries. In addition, using this net revenue metric provides a more meaningful representation of our profit margins.
    10 Pre-tax return on premium and fees = pre-tax operating earnings divided by premium and fees.
