    Strategic Update

    Genworth continues to focus on executing its contingency plan to raise liquidity to address its 2021 obligations and maximize shareholder value. The plan builds on actions the company has taken over the last several years to strengthen its financial position, including the sale of its Canadian mortgage insurance business, the completion of a debt offering at the U.S. MI holding company and the settlement with AXA S.A.

    As previously disclosed, Genworth remains focused on preparing for a potential partial initial public offering (IPO) of its U.S. MI business, subject to market conditions as well as the satisfaction of various conditions and approvals. The company is also taking steps to align its expense structure with current business activities. Expense reduction initiatives completed to date are anticipated to result in annualized savings of approximately $50 million.

    Additionally, the company continues to manage the U.S. life insurance companies on a standalone basis. Going forward, the U.S. life insurance businesses will continue to rely on their consolidated statutory capital of approximately $2.3 billion dollars (as of September 30, 2020), significant claim and active life reserves, prudent management of in force blocks and actuarially justified rate actions to satisfy policyholder obligations. Genworth made strong progress on its MYRAP in 2020, receiving approvals on $344 million of incremental annual premium increases during the year. In aggregate, the company estimates it has now achieved approximately $14.5 billion in NPV from approved rate increases since 2012. The company continues to work closely with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and state regulators to demonstrate the broad-based need for actuarially justified rate increases in order to pay future claims.

    “I am very pleased with Genworth’s strong fourth quarter performance, which we were able to deliver despite the ongoing uncertainty in our current operating environment,” said Tom McInerney, Genworth President and CEO. “In addition, we have made significant progress towards meeting our obligations in 2021 since our last update, including working towards the potential IPO of the U.S. MI business, streamlining our cost structure and paying our February debt obligation. I look forward to continuing to execute against our contingency plan to further strengthen our financial position and create long-term value.”

    On January 4, Genworth and China Oceanwide Holdings Group Co., Ltd (Oceanwide) announced that they decided not to extend the December 31, 2020 “end date” under their merger agreement. The merger agreement between Genworth and Oceanwide remains in effect, although either party is able to terminate the merger agreement at any time. The Oceanwide transaction previously received all U.S. regulatory approvals needed to close the transaction. If Oceanwide is able to secure the required funding to close the transaction, the parties would need to re-engage with their regulators to determine the re-approvals or confirmations that would be necessary to close the transaction.

    Net investment gains, net of taxes and other adjustments, increased net income by $125 million in the quarter. The investment gains were driven by mark-to-market gains on limited partnerships in the LTC business and net gains on derivatives, including gains due to guaranteed minimum withdrawal benefits on variable annuities and foreign exchange hedges in Australia MI due to strengthening of the Australian dollar. The net loss in the fourth quarter of 2019 included $12 million from investment gains, net of taxes and other adjustments.

    Net investment income was $854 million in the quarter, compared to $827 million in the prior quarter and $794 million in the prior year. Net investment income was higher than the prior quarter and prior year as a result of higher income from limited partnerships, bond calls and commercial mortgage loan (CML) prepayments, primarily in the LTC business. The reported yield and the core yield3 for the quarter were 4.94 percent and 4.67 percent, respectively, compared to 4.82 percent and 4.65 percent, respectively, in the prior quarter.

    Genworth’s effective tax rate on income from continuing operations for the quarter was approximately 22 percent. The effective tax rate was above 21 percent due primarily to the higher tax expense on foreign operations and state income taxes.

    U.S. MI reported adjusted operating income of $95 million, compared with $141 million in the prior quarter and $160 million in the prior year. U.S. MI’s primary insurance in force increased 14 percent versus the prior year from strong NIW, partially offset by lower persistency. Primary NIW increased two percent from the prior quarter due to continued strong mortgage originations and was up 49 percent versus the prior year primarily from higher mortgage originations and a larger private mortgage insurance market. Earned premiums in the quarter were flat to the prior quarter as insurance in force growth was offset by higher ceded reinsurance premiums and slightly lower average premium rates. Current quarter earned premiums increased versus the prior year mainly from higher insurance in force and from increased single premium policy cancellations driven by lower persistency from elevated mortgage refinancing, partially offset by a favorable $14 million pre-tax single premium earnings pattern adjustment in the prior year, higher ceded premiums from reinsurance transactions and lower average premium rates.

    U.S. MI’s current quarter results reflected losses of $89 million and a loss ratio of 35 percent, which were driven by $50 million of losses from new delinquencies and $37 million pre-tax reserve strengthening on existing delinquencies. New delinquencies decreased by 28 percent from 16,664 in the prior quarter to 11,923. The reserve strengthening in the quarter primarily reflects the company’s expectation that previously reported delinquencies in forbearance plans will have a higher claim rate than the initial best estimate given the slower emergence of cures relative to original expectations, as well as the ongoing economic uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Results in the prior quarter and prior year reflected losses of $45 million and $11 million, and a loss ratio of 18 percent and four percent, respectively. The sequential increase in losses was mainly driven by the reserve strengthening in the current quarter and the prior quarter incurred but not reported (IBNR) reserve release of $23 million pre-tax, or $18 million after-tax, partially offset by lower losses from new delinquencies. Approximately 56 percent of new primary delinquencies were reported in forbearance plans which may cure at elevated rates relative to historical performance. Current quarter losses increased versus the prior year driven primarily by the current quarter reserve strengthening and higher losses from new delinquencies. Additionally, U.S. MI had an unfavorable $6 million pre-tax charge related to accelerated amortization of deferred acquisition costs (DAC) in the current quarter driven by elevated lapse from high refinance activity.

    Australia MI reported an adjusted operating loss of $16 million, compared to adjusted operating income of $7 million in the prior quarter and adjusted operating income of $12 million in the prior year. Current quarter results included higher losses from reserve strengthening compared with the prior quarter and prior year. Australia MI flow NIW increased 18 percent sequentially and increased 29 percent versus the prior year from continued strong lender customer mortgage origination volume supported by ongoing low interest rates. As of the end of the current quarter, over 8,100 of Australia MI’s insured loans in force continued to be enrolled in a payment deferral or payment holiday program, down from approximately 31,000 reported at the end of the prior quarter. Under regulatory guidance, these loans, unless previously delinquent, are reported as current. The business strengthened its loss reserves by $88 million pre-tax in the current quarter for both a refinement in its reserving methodology to more closely align with historical delinquency behavior and for loans in payment deferral programs. The reserve strengthening drove a loss ratio in the quarter of 122 percent, which was up 85 points sequentially and up 92 points versus the prior year.

    Long Term Care Insurance

    Long term care insurance reported adjusted operating income of $129 million, compared with $59 million in the prior quarter and $19 million in the prior year. Claim terminations in the current quarter were higher compared to the prior quarter and prior year. Although it is not the company’s current practice to track cause of death for LTC policyholders and claimants, the elevated terminations impacting the current and prior quarter were likely the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. LTC results also reflected higher net investment income of $29 million after-tax versus the prior quarter and $40 million after-tax versus the prior year from limited partnerships, bond calls and CML prepayments. New claim incidence remained low in the fourth quarter, which drove continued favorable development on IBNR claim reserves. Since the recent decrease in incidence is assumed to be driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and temporary in nature, IBNR claim reserves were strengthened by an additional $37 million after-tax in the current quarter. The company also assumed that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated its mortality experience on the most vulnerable claimants, leaving its overall claim population less likely to terminate compared to the pre-pandemic average population, and therefore strengthened its claim reserves by $72 million after-tax in the current quarter. Earnings continue to benefit from in force rate actions but were lower than the prior quarter and prior year, reflecting less favorable impacts from benefit reductions, partially offset by higher premiums.

    Results in the current quarter reflected a net benefit of $13 million after-tax from the completion of the annual review of LTC assumptions and methodologies. The net benefit was primarily related to assumption updates to claim incidence and claim and policy terminations, based on the company’s current long-term view of these assumptions. The COVID-19 pandemic impacts to the LTC business are not currently expected to be indicative of future trends or loss performance.

    During the quarter, the company completed its annual review of U.S. GAAP active life margins, also referred to as loss recognition testing. All key margin-testing assumptions were reviewed and updated where appropriate. As of December 31, 2020, the loss recognition testing margins for the LTC business were approximately $0.5 to $1.0 billion, unchanged from the prior year. The 2020 margins reflected updated assumptions including an unfavorable update for recent benefit utilization experience, which was offset by a higher modeled benefit from planned future in force rate actions. The company continues to separately test its LTC acquired block (representing business written prior to late 1995) for recoverability as part of testing its U.S. GAAP loss recognition margins. The loss recognition testing margin for the LTC acquired block was positive and did not require an increase to reserves in the quarter.

    Life Insurance

    Life insurance reported an adjusted operating loss of $20 million, compared with $69 million in the prior quarter and $164 million in the prior year. During the quarter, the company completed its annual review of life insurance assumptions and recorded a benefit of $10 million after-tax, which included $60 million of favorable assumption changes primarily related to its term universal life insurance products, partially offset by a $50 million charge from annual DAC recoverability testing in its universal life insurance products. Results in the prior year included charges of $139 million after-tax related to the company’s annual review of life insurance assumptions. Current quarter results also reflected lower DAC amortization compared to the prior quarter and prior year, primarily associated with fewer lapses from the large 20-year level-premium term life insurance block entering its post-level premium period. Results also reflected lower reserve increases during the premium grace period in the 10-year term universal life insurance block associated with policies entering the post-level premium period compared to the prior quarter and prior year. Life mortality was higher compared to the prior quarter and prior year, attributable in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Fixed Annuities

    Fixed annuities reported adjusted operating income of $20 million, compared with $24 million in the prior quarter and $30 million in the prior year. Results versus the prior quarter and prior year reflected lower mortality in the single premium immediate annuity product and lower net spreads.

    Runoff

    Runoff reported adjusted operating income of $13 million, compared with $19 million in the prior quarter and $17 million in the prior year. Results in the current quarter included a $5 million after-tax charge for the company’s variable annuity products from annual assumption updates.

    Corporate And Other

    Corporate and Other reported an adjusted operating loss of $48 million, compared with $49 million in the prior quarter and $50 million in the prior year. Current quarter results reflected favorable tax timing adjustments compared to the prior quarter and lower net investment income compared to both the prior quarter and prior year.

    Key Points

    • U.S. MI’s PMIERs sufficiency ratio is estimated to be 137 percent, $1,229 million above published PMIERs requirements10. The PMIERs sufficiency ratio was up five points, or $155 million, sequentially, driven in part by the completion of an insurance linked notes transaction, which added $311 million of additional PMIERs capital credit as of December 31, 2020, and elevated lapse from prevailing low interest rates in the current quarter, partially offset by elevated NIW. Additionally, elevated lapse continued to drive an acceleration of the amortization on existing reinsurance transactions, which caused a reduction in PMIERs capital credit in the current quarter;
    • Both the current quarter and prior quarter PMIERs sufficiency benefited from a 0.30 multiplier applied to the risk based required asset factor for certain non-performing loans, which resulted in a reduction of the published PMIERs required assets by an estimated $1,046 million at the end of the current quarter, compared to $1,217 million at the end of the third quarter;
    • Genworth Mortgage Holdings, Inc.11 held $300 million of cash as of December 31, 2020, unchanged from the prior quarter;
    • Australia MI’s PCA ratio is estimated to be 165 percent, above the company’s target capital range of 132 to 144 percent; a 14-point sequential decline from higher required capital largely due to levels of new insurance written;
    • Australia MI renewed its AUD$800 million reinsurance program, effective January 1, 2021;
    • U.S. life insurance companies’ statutory and cash flow testing results remain in process and will be made available with year-end statutory filings; and
    • The holding company ended the quarter with $1,103 million of cash and liquid assets, including $71 million that is restricted, which was up $289 million compared with the prior quarter’s ending balance. The increase was primarily from intercompany cash tax payments related to taxable income from the third and fourth quarters of 2020. Subsequent to year end, the company retired its February 2021 debt of $338 million. The company has $659 million in principal due in September 2021.

    Use of Non-GAAP Measures

    This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures entitled “adjusted operating income (loss)” and “adjusted operating income (loss) per share.” Adjusted operating income (loss) per share is derived from adjusted operating income (loss). The chief operating decision maker evaluates segment performance and allocates resources on the basis of adjusted operating income (loss). The company defines adjusted operating income (loss) as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effects of income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to noncontrolling interests, net investment gains (losses), goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions, restructuring costs and infrequent or unusual non-operating items. Gains (losses) on insurance block transactions are defined as gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of non-recourse funding obligations, early termination fees for other financing restructuring and/or resulting gains (losses) on reinsurance restructuring for certain blocks of business. The company excludes net investment gains (losses) and infrequent or unusual non-operating items because the company does not consider them to be related to the operating performance of the company’s segments and Corporate and Other activities. A component of the company’s net investment gains (losses) is the result of estimated future credit losses, the size and timing of which can vary significantly depending on market credit cycles. In addition, the size and timing of other investment gains (losses) can be subject to the company’s discretion and are influenced by market opportunities, as well as asset-liability matching considerations. Goodwill impairments, gains (losses) on the sale of businesses, gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt, gains (losses) on insurance block transactions and restructuring costs are also excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) because, in the company’s opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends. Infrequent or unusual non-operating items are also excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) if, in the company’s opinion, they are not indicative of overall operating trends.

    While some of these items may be significant components of net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.’s common stockholders in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the company believes that adjusted operating income (loss) and measures that are derived from or incorporate adjusted operating income (loss), including adjusted operating income (loss) per share on a basic and diluted basis, are appropriate measures that are useful to investors because they identify the income (loss) attributable to the ongoing operations of the business. Management also uses adjusted operating income (loss) as a basis for determining awards and compensation for senior management and to evaluate performance on a basis comparable to that used by analysts. However, the items excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) have occurred in the past and could, and in some cases will, recur in the future. Adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted operating income (loss) per share on a basic and diluted basis are not substitutes for net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.’s common stockholders or net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.’s common stockholders per share on a basic and diluted basis determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the company’s definition of adjusted operating income (loss) may differ from the definitions used by other companies.

    Adjustments to reconcile net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.’s common stockholders to adjusted operating income (loss) assume a 21 percent tax rate for the company’s domestic segments and a 30 percent tax rate for its Australia Mortgage Insurance segment and are net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests. Net investment gains (losses) are also adjusted for DAC and other intangible amortization and certain benefit reserves.

    In the second quarter of 2020, the company recorded a goodwill impairment of $3 million, net of the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests, in its Australia mortgage insurance business.

    During 2020, the company repurchased $84 million principal amount of Genworth Holdings, Inc.’s (Genworth Holdings) senior notes with 2021 maturity dates for a pre-tax gain of $3 million and $1 million in the second and first quarters of 2020, respectively. In January 2020, the company paid a pre-tax make-whole expense of $9 million related to the early redemption of Genworth Holdings’ senior notes originally scheduled to mature in June 2020 and Rivermont Life Insurance Company I, the company’s indirect wholly-owned special purpose consolidated captive insurance subsidiary, early redeemed all of its $315 million outstanding non-recourse funding obligations originally due in 2050 resulting in a pre-tax loss of $4 million from the write-off of deferred borrowing costs. These transactions were excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) as they relate to gains (losses) on the early extinguishment of debt.

    The company recorded a pre-tax expense of $1 million in each of the fourth, second and first quarters of 2020 and $4 million in the first quarter of 2019 related to restructuring costs as it continues to evaluate and appropriately size its organizational needs and expenses. There were no infrequent or unusual items excluded from adjusted operating income (loss) during the periods presented.

    The tables at the end of this press release provide a reconciliation of net income (loss) available to Genworth Financial, Inc.’s common stockholders to adjusted operating income for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, as well as for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and reflect adjusted operating income (loss) as determined in accordance with accounting guidance related to segment reporting.

    This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure entitled “core yield” as a measure of investment yield. The company defines core yield as the investment yield adjusted for items that do not reflect the underlying performance of the investment portfolio. Management believes that analysis of core yield enhances understanding of the investment yield of the company. However, core yield is not a substitute for investment yield determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the company’s definition of core yield may differ from the definitions used by other companies. A reconciliation of reported U.S. GAAP yield to core yield is included in a table at the end of this press release.

    Definition of Selected Operating Performance Measures

    The company taxes its international businesses at their local jurisdictional tax rates and its domestic businesses at the U.S. corporate federal income tax rate of 21 percent. The company’s segment tax methodology applies the respective jurisdictional or domestic tax rate to the pre-tax income (loss) of each segment, which is then adjusted in each segment to reflect the tax attributes of items unique to that segment such as foreign withholding taxes and permanent differences between U.S. GAAP and local tax law. The difference between the consolidated provision for income taxes and the sum of the provision for income taxes in each segment is reflected in Corporate and Other activities.

    The annually-determined tax rates and adjustments to each segment’s provision for income taxes are estimates which are subject to review and could change from year to year.

    The company reports selected operating performance measures including “sales” and “insurance in force” or “risk in force” which are commonly used in the insurance industry as measures of operating performance.

    Management regularly monitors and reports sales metrics as a measure of volume of new business generated in a period. Sales refer to new insurance written for mortgage insurance products. The company considers new insurance written to be a measure of the company’s operating performance because it represents a measure of new sales of insurance policies during a specified period, rather than a measure of the company’s revenues or profitability during that period.

    Management regularly monitors and reports insurance in force and risk in force. Insurance in force for the company’s U.S. mortgage insurance business is a measure of the aggregate unpaid principal balance as of the respective reporting date for loans the company insures. Insurance in force for the company’s Australia mortgage insurance business is a measure of the aggregate original loan balance for outstanding insurance policies as of the respective reporting date. Risk in force for the company’s U.S. mortgage insurance business is based on the coverage percentage applied to the estimated current outstanding loan balance. Risk in force in the Australia mortgage insurance business is computed using an “effective” risk in force amount, which recognizes that the loss on any particular loan will be reduced by the net proceeds received upon sale of the property. Effective risk in force has been calculated by applying to insurance in force a factor of 35 percent that represents the highest expected average per-claim payment for any one underwriting year over the life of the company’s mortgage insurance business in Australia. The company also has certain risk share arrangements in Australia where it provides pro-rata coverage of certain loans rather than 100 percent coverage. As a result, for loans with these risk share arrangements, the applicable pro-rata coverage amount provided is used when applying the factor. The company considers insurance in force and risk in force to be measures of its operating performance because they represent measures of the size of its business at a specific date which will generate revenues and profits in a future period, rather than measures of its revenues or profitability during that period.

    Management also regularly monitors and reports a loss ratio for the company’s businesses. For the mortgage insurance businesses, the loss ratio is the ratio of benefits and other changes in policy reserves to net earned premiums. For the long term care insurance business, the loss ratio is the ratio of benefits and other changes in reserves less tabular interest on reserves less loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums. The company considers the loss ratio to be a measure of underwriting performance in these businesses and helps to enhance the understanding of the operating performance of the businesses.

    These operating performance measures enable the company to compare its operating performance across periods without regard to revenues or profitability related to policies or contracts sold in prior periods or from investments or other sources.

    Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

    This press release contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “expects,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “will” or words of similar meaning and include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the outlook for the company’s future business and financial performance. Examples of forward-looking statements include statements the company makes relating to the potential termination, extension or closing of the transaction with China Oceanwide Holdings Group Co., Ltd.

    • risks relating to economic, market and political conditions including: downturns and volatility in global economies and equity and credit markets, including as a result of prolonged unemployment, a sustained low interest rate environment and other displacements caused by the COVID-19 pandemic; interest rates and changes in rates have adversely impacted, and may continue to materially adversely impact, the company’s business and profitability; deterioration in economic conditions or a decline in home prices that adversely affect the company’s loss experience in mortgage insurance; political and economic instability or changes in government policies; and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and international securities markets;
