  • American Equity Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

    August 10, 2021 by American Equity Investment Life Holding Company

    WEST DES MOINES, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American Equity Investment Life Holding Company (NYSE: AEL), a leading issuer of fixed index annuities (FIAs) today reported second quarter 2021 non-GAAP operating income1 available to common stockholders of $93.8 million, or $0.98 per diluted common share, compared to non-GAAP operating income1 available to common stockholders of $93.1 million, or $1.01 per diluted common share, for second quarter 2020.

    The year-over-year increase in quarterly non-GAAP operating income1 available to common stockholders primarily reflected a decrease in the change in the liability for future policy benefits to be paid for lifetime income benefit riders (LIBR) offset by a decrease in investment spread and an increase in other operating costs and expenses.

    Year-over-year, the change in liability for future policy benefits to be paid for LIBR decreased by $61 million. The positive difference between actual versus modeled expectations in the second quarter of 2021, primarily reflecting the level of equity index credits, reduced the increase in the liability for future policy benefits to be paid for LIBR by $29 million. By comparison, in the second quarter of 2020, actual versus modeled expectations increased the change in liability for future policy benefits to be paid for LIBR by $43 million.

    Compared to the second quarter of 2020, amortization of deferred policy acquisition and sales inducement costs decreased $1 million. Actual versus modeled expectations in the second quarter of 2021, primarily reflecting the level of equity index credits, reduced amortization by $31 million. Amortization of deferred sales inducements and policy acquisition costs benefited by $28 million in the second quarter of 2020 from actual versus modeled expectations.

    CONTINUED DEPLOYMENT INTO PRIVATE ASSETS AS PART OF RAMPING TO 30% ASSET ALLOCATION OVER TIME

    American Equity’s investment spread was 1.95% for the second quarter of 2021 compared to 2.00% for the first quarter of 2021 and 2.39% for the second quarter of 2020. On a sequential basis, the average yield on invested assets decreased by 7 basis points while the cost of money fell by 2 basis points. Adjusted investment spread excluding non-trendable itemsdeclined to 1.81% in the second quarter of 2021 from 1.87% in the first quarter of 2021.

    Average yield on invested assets was 3.51% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to 3.58% in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in investment yield was primarily driven by an increase in the average level of liquidity in the investment portfolios of the life insurance companies. The average adjusted yield on invested assets excluding non-trendable items3 was 3.41% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to 3.47% in the first quarter of 2021.

    The aggregate cost of money for annuity liabilities of 1.56% in the second quarter of 2021 was down 2 basis points from 1.58% in the first quarter of 2021. The cost of money in the second quarter of 2021 was positively affected by 4 basis points of over-hedging of index-linked credits compared to 2 basis point of hedge gain in the first quarter of 2021.

    Commenting on investment activities, Anant Bhalla, Chief Executive Officer, said: “For the first time in our company’s history, in the second quarter, we started leveraging our asset management partnerships to invest in single-family rental homes and middle market loans consistent with ramping towards the AEL 2.0 asset allocation strategy. Year-to-date, we have purchased over $800 million of privately-sourced alpha-generating assets — solid initial steps towards our plan of adding between $1 billion to $2 billion in private assets this year growing to a pace of 5% or greater of the portfolio in each subsequent year to evolve into our new asset allocation of 30% or greater in private assets. In the second quarter, we purchased $1.7 billion of new assets at an expected return of approximately 4.15%, net of third-party investment expenses. This included $569 million in private assets added in the quarter.”

    Bhalla continued: “For any strategy migration, there are short-term impacts for longer-term gains. For American Equity, this has manifested itself in higher cash balances. The decrease in average yield on investment assets was primarily attributable to a 7-basis point reduction from interest foregone due to an increase in the average amount of cash held in the life insurance company portfolios in the quarter. Cash and equivalents averaged $10.0 billion in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $8.6 billion in the first quarter of 2021. At June 30, cash and equivalents in the life insurance company portfolios were $10 billion. While we expect to continue to ramp up private assets with strong positive net cash flows in 2022, we are also planning to deploy most of the cash balances above our target cash levels into traditional fixed income investments over the next six months.”

    FUNDS UNDER MANAGEMENT INCREASE 1.5% ON $1.2 BILLION OF SALES DRIVEN BY FIA

    Policyholder funds under management at June 30, 2021 were $56.6 billion, an $817 million, or 1.5% increase from March 31, 2021. Second quarter gross sales were $1,180 million, representing an increase of 111% from the second quarter 2020 sales level. On a sequential basis, gross sales decreased 52% from the all-time record level set in the first quarter of 2021. Compared to the first quarter of 2021, gross sales of fixed index annuities at American Equity Life increased 36% while Eagle Life sales rose 24%.

    Commenting on sales, Bhalla stated: “Our strategy of growing fixed index annuity sales is working in both the American Equity and Eagle Life channels. As previously shared in our first quarter earnings call, our plan to pivot from multi-year fixed rate annuities for the remainder of the year to our refreshed line-up of fixed index annuities is bearing results. Based on preliminary industry estimates, this is the third quarter in a row that our fixed index annuity market share has increased, reflecting the upgrades we have made to our Go-to-Market franchise over the past year.”

    AMERICAN EQUITY COMPLETES INITIAL 9.1 MILLION SHARE REPURCHASE

    In July, American Equity completed the repurchase of 9.1 million shares that began in November of last year to fully offset the impact of dilution from shares issued to Brookfield Asset Management Inc. The total buyback included repurchase of 3 million shares in the second quarter for a total of $95.1 million. Remaining share repurchase authorization is $236 million.

    NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

    In addition to net income (loss) available to common stockholders, we have consistently utilized non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders and non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders per common share – assuming dilution, non-GAAP financial measures commonly used in the life insurance industry, as economic measures to evaluate our financial performance. Non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders equals net income (loss) available to common stockholders adjusted to eliminate the impact of items that fluctuate from quarter to quarter in a manner unrelated to core operations, and we believe measures excluding their impact are useful in analyzing operating trends. The most significant adjustments to arrive at non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders eliminate the impact of fair value accounting for our fixed index annuity business. These adjustments are not economic in nature but rather impact the timing of reported results. We believe the combined presentation and evaluation of non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders together with net income (loss) available to common stockholders provides information that may enhance an investor’s understanding of our underlying results and profitability.

    Adjustments to net income (loss) available to common stockholders to arrive at non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders are presented net of related adjustments to amortization of deferred sales inducements and deferred policy acquisition costs and accretion of lifetime income benefit rider (LIBR) reserves where applicable.

    (b)  

    Notable items reflect the after-tax impact to non-GAAP operating income available to common stockholders for certain items that do not reflect the company’s expected ongoing operations. Notable items include the impact from actuarial assumption updates, certain initial uncapitalized costs to establish the AEL 2.0 strategy, and initial non-deferred impacts related to reinsurance transactions. The presentation of notable items is intended to help investors better understand our results and to evaluate and forecast those results.

    Equity available to preferred stockholders is equal to the redemption value of outstanding preferred stock plus share dividends declared but not yet issued.

    (b)  

    Total common stockholders’ equity, total common stockholders’ equity excluding AOCI and total common stockholders’ equity excluding AOCI and the net impact of fair value accounting for derivatives and embedded derivatives, non-GAAP financial measures, exclude equity available to preferred stockholders. Total common stockholders’ equity and book value per common share excluding AOCI, non-GAAP financial measures, are based on common stockholders’ equity excluding the effect of AOCI. Since AOCI fluctuates from quarter to quarter due to unrealized changes in the fair value of available for sale securities, we believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information. Total common stockholders’ equity and book value per common share excluding AOCI and the net impact of fair value accounting for derivatives and embedded derivatives, non-GAAP financial measures, are based on common stockholders’ equity excluding AOCI and the net impact of fair value accounting for derivatives and embedded derivatives. Since the net impact of fair value accounting for our derivatives and embedded derivatives fluctuates from quarter to quarter and the most significant impacts relate to fair value accounting for our fixed index annuity business and are not economic in nature but rather impact the timing of reported results, we believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information.

    (c)  

    Book value per common share including and excluding AOCI and book value per common share excluding AOCI and the net impact of fair value accounting for derivatives and embedded derivatives are calculated as total common stockholders’ equity, total common stockholders’ equity excluding AOCI and total common stockholders’ equity excluding AOCI and the net impact of fair value accounting for derivatives and embedded derivatives divided by the total number of shares of common stock outstanding.

    NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

     

    Average Common Stockholders’ Equity and Return on Average Common Stockholders’ Equity

     

    Return on average common stockholders’ equity measures how efficiently we generate profits from the resources provided by our net assets. Return on average common stockholders’ equity is calculated by dividing net income available to common stockholders, for the trailing twelve months, by average equity available to common stockholders. Non-GAAP operating return on average common stockholders’ equity excluding average accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) is calculated by dividing non-GAAP operating income (loss) available to common stockholders, for the trailing twelve months, by average common stockholders’ equity excluding average AOCI. We exclude AOCI because AOCI fluctuates from quarter to quarter due to unrealized changes in the fair value of available for sale investments.
