    “Our record results through the first half of 2021 are indicative of Horace Mann’s financial strength and the stability of our multiline insurance and financial services model,” said Horace Mann President and CEO Marita Zuraitis. “We are ideally positioned to reach educators returning to a ‘more normal’ in-person teaching environment this fall. Our agency force is ready with solutions designed to help educators achieve lifelong financial success through both our traditional in-person back-to-school marketing activities, as well as virtual sales tools that were tested and proven over the past year. We are already seeing more educators focusing on their long-term financial security, as evidenced through our 15.6% increase in annuity contract deposits.

    “As we announced last month, we now expect full-year 2021 core EPS in the range of $3.50 to $3.70, with return on equity over 10%,” Zuraitis continued. “Second quarter results benefited from stronger-than-anticipated net investment income returns and lower-than-guided catastrophe losses. At a segment level, our full-year outlook for the Property & Casualty, Retirement, and Supplemental segments are more positive than at the beginning of the year. Our Life segment is slightly below original expectations due to mortality costs in the first quarter that returned to actuarially expected ranges in the second quarter.

    “Strong 2021 results will represent another step toward our long-term objective of a sustainable double-digit return on equity,” Zuraitis added. “Looking further ahead, our acquisition of Madison National Life Insurance Company will add a new suite of employer-sponsored benefit products and new independent benefit broker distribution upon our expected close in early 2022. Adding this complementary distribution channel will enable Horace Mann to serve every employee in a district with employer-sponsored solutions designed to help districts attract and retain good educators. Whether educators get protection through individual coverage or through their employer, Horace Mann will be able to provide it.

    “We continue to build a track record of prudently allocating capital to maximize value for our shareholders,” concluded Zuraitis. “Similar to our 2019 acquisition of NTA, the acquisition of Madison National will be immediately accretive to EPS and ROE, and immediately contribute to a larger share of the education market. It also accelerates our progress on all fronts of our multi-year strategic plan: strengthening our product offerings, enhancing our distribution, and adding capabilities to our infrastructure.”

    Property and Casualty segment benefits from strong net investment income

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Property and Casualty insurance segment primarily markets private passenger automobile insurance and residential home insurance. Horace Mann offers standard automobile coverages, including liability, collision and comprehensive. Property coverage includes both homeowners and renters policies. For both automobile and property coverage, Horace Mann offers educators a discounted rate and the Educator Advantage® package of features. The Property and Casualty segment represented 53% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $76.5 million to 2020 core earnings.

    Property and Casualty premiums written of $155.6 million were flat with last year’s second quarter with new business volume remaining below historical levels as we work through the impact of the pandemic on sales. Auto average premiums were down slightly, driven in part by changes in miles driven. Property average premiums rose slightly, but with inflationary pressure continuing, adjustments to coverage values and rate are expected to play a greater role in the coming quarters. The auto policy retention rate remained strong and consistent with the prior year while the property retention rate remained in line with recent experience.

    Overall, segment core earnings for the quarter rose 70.8%, due to the 244.4% increase in net investment income. The 3.8 point increase in the combined ratio reflected substantially lower catastrophe losses offset by a 16.8 point increase in the underlying combined ratio versus last year’s second quarter. The underlying auto loss ratio rose to 68.0%, reflecting both the anticipated increase in frequency as driving behaviors return to normal as well as higher severity due to inflationary pressure that are driving loss costs higher than 2020. Due in part to continued underwriting discipline, the underlying auto loss ratio remains below 2019 levels. The underlying property loss ratio rose to 59.2% for the quarter, driven primarily by increased frequency and severity of fire and non-weather water losses as well as overall inflation due to the cost of labor and materials.

    In the second quarter, policyholders’ losses from 17 catastrophe events were $17.5 million, adding 11.3 points to the combined ratio compared to $34.7 million or 22.2 points in last year’s second quarter. The company’s updated full-year 2021 guidance assumes second-half catastrophe losses will contribute between $20 million and $25 million, in line with the 10-year average for second-half catastrophe losses.

    Supplemental segment contributed $12.0 million to second-quarter earnings

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Supplemental insurance segment specializes in marketing supplemental insurance products, including cancer, heart, hospital, supplemental disability and accident for the education market. The segment represented 12% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $43.1 million to 2020 core earnings.

    Measured to total revenues.

    Supplemental segment sales were $1.2 million in the second quarter, which improved over the 2021 first quarter as well as last year’s second quarter, but continued to reflect limited school access because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sales growth is expected to accelerate through the second half of the year with the anticipated return to in-person learning this fall. Persistency remained very strong at 90.7%.

    Strong core earnings reflected higher net investment income as well as favorable business trends including some continued short-term benefit from changes in policyholder behavior due to COVID-19. Segment expenses include the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets under purchase accounting that reduced core earnings by $3.0 million pretax. The pretax profit margin remains above management’s longer-term expectations because of the pandemic-related changes in policyholder behavior.

    Retirement segment benefits from strong net investment spread

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Retirement segment primarily markets 403(b) tax-qualified fixed, fixed index and variable annuities; the Horace Mann Retirement Advantage® open architecture platform for 403(b)(7) and other defined contribution plans; and other retirement products to educators. Horace Mann is one of the largest participants in the K-12 educator portion of the 403(b) tax-qualified annuity market, measured by 403(b) net written premium on a statutory accounting basis. The Retirement segment represented 21% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $28.2 million to 2020 core earnings.

    Net annuity contract deposits rose 15.6% over last year’s second quarter. Horace Mann’s relationships with educators often begins with our 403(b) retirement savings products, including our attractive annuity products, and we are encouraged by the cross-sell opportunities they provide. Total cash value persistency remained strong at 94.8% for variable annuities and 95.0% for fixed annuities.

    Horace Mann currently has $5.2 billion in annuity assets under management, including $2.2 billion of fixed annuities, $2.5 billion of variable annuities and $0.5 billion of fixed indexed annuities. Assets under administration, which includes Retirement Advantage and other advisory and recordkeeping assets, was up 17.2% from a year ago, as assets under management rose largely due to strong equity market performance over the past 12 months.

    The net interest spread was 265 points, reflecting the strong returns from the alternatives portfolio. Core earnings excluding DAC unlocking was up 88.3%, primarily due to the strong net interest margin.

    Life segment second-quarter core earnings more than doubled over prior year

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Life insurance segment primarily markets traditional term and whole life insurance products to educators. The Life segment represented 14% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $10.4 million to 2020 core earnings.

    N.M. – Not meaningful.

    Total net investment income was up 35.8% or $28.8 million. Net investment income on the managed portfolio rose 48.8%, reflecting outsized returns in the alternatives portfolio in the second quarter, primarily benefiting the Property and Casualty segment. Several private equity funds saw realizations significantly above expectations during the quarter.

    Pretax net investment gains (losses) were $4.9 million, with immaterial impairments on investments. The company’s fixed maturity securities portfolio is in a net unrealized investment gain position of $505.6 million at June 30, 2021.

    Book value excluding net unrealized investment gains up 9% year over year

    At June 30, 2021, shareholders’ equity was $1.82 billion, or $43.78 per share. Excluding net unrealized investment gains on fixed maturity securities, shareholders’ equity was $1.48 billion, or $35.78 per share.* At June 30, 2021, total debt was $413.5 million, with $135.0 million outstanding on the company’s line of credit. The ratio of debt-to-capital excluding net unrealized investment gains* was 21.8%.

    As of June 30, 2021, $19.1 million remained authorized for future share repurchases under the share repurchase program.

    Segment guidance

    The company’s current guidance is for 2021 EPS in the range of $3.50 to $3.70 with core return on equity above 10%. Guidance was raised on July 1 from $3.00 to $3.20 due to strong second-quarter net investment income returns and lower-than-guided second-quarter catastrophe losses. Total 2021 net investment income now is expected to be in the range of $385 million to $405 million, largely due to a strong contribution from the alternative investment portfolio across all segments. In addition to improved net investment income, the revised full-year 2021 guidance assumes:

    • Property and Casualty 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $66 million to $70 million. Expected lower catastrophe losses are offset by an increase in the underlying loss ratio.
    • Retirement 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $43 million to $45 million.
    • Life 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $14 million to $16 million as higher first quarter 2021 mortality costs offset the anticipated increase in full-year net investment income.
    • Supplemental 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $41 million to $43 million in part due to a better than anticipated benefits ratio.

    “Our record results through the first half of 2021 are indicative of Horace Mann’s financial strength and the stability of our multiline insurance and financial services model,” said Horace Mann President and CEO Marita Zuraitis. “We are ideally positioned to reach educators returning to a ‘more normal’ in-person teaching environment this fall. Our agency force is ready with solutions designed to help educators achieve lifelong financial success through both our traditional in-person back-to-school marketing activities, as well as virtual sales tools that were tested and proven over the past year. We are already seeing more educators focusing on their long-term financial security, as evidenced through our 15.6% increase in annuity contract deposits.

    “As we announced last month, we now expect full-year 2021 core EPS in the range of $3.50 to $3.70, with return on equity over 10%,” Zuraitis continued. “Second quarter results benefited from stronger-than-anticipated net investment income returns and lower-than-guided catastrophe losses. At a segment level, our full-year outlook for the Property & Casualty, Retirement, and Supplemental segments are more positive than at the beginning of the year. Our Life segment is slightly below original expectations due to mortality costs in the first quarter that returned to actuarially expected ranges in the second quarter.

    “Strong 2021 results will represent another step toward our long-term objective of a sustainable double-digit return on equity,” Zuraitis added. “Looking further ahead, our acquisition of Madison National Life Insurance Company will add a new suite of employer-sponsored benefit products and new independent benefit broker distribution upon our expected close in early 2022. Adding this complementary distribution channel will enable Horace Mann to serve every employee in a district with employer-sponsored solutions designed to help districts attract and retain good educators. Whether educators get protection through individual coverage or through their employer, Horace Mann will be able to provide it.

    “We continue to build a track record of prudently allocating capital to maximize value for our shareholders,” concluded Zuraitis. “Similar to our 2019 acquisition of NTA, the acquisition of Madison National will be immediately accretive to EPS and ROE, and immediately contribute to a larger share of the education market. It also accelerates our progress on all fronts of our multi-year strategic plan: strengthening our product offerings, enhancing our distribution, and adding capabilities to our infrastructure.”

    Property and Casualty segment benefits from strong net investment income

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Property and Casualty insurance segment primarily markets private passenger automobile insurance and residential home insurance. Horace Mann offers standard automobile coverages, including liability, collision and comprehensive. Property coverage includes both homeowners and renters policies. For both automobile and property coverage, Horace Mann offers educators a discounted rate and the Educator Advantage® package of features. The Property and Casualty segment represented 53% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $76.5 million to 2020 core earnings.

    Property and Casualty premiums written of $155.6 million were flat with last year’s second quarter with new business volume remaining below historical levels as we work through the impact of the pandemic on sales. Auto average premiums were down slightly, driven in part by changes in miles driven. Property average premiums rose slightly, but with inflationary pressure continuing, adjustments to coverage values and rate are expected to play a greater role in the coming quarters. The auto policy retention rate remained strong and consistent with the prior year while the property retention rate remained in line with recent experience.

    Overall, segment core earnings for the quarter rose 70.8%, due to the 244.4% increase in net investment income. The 3.8 point increase in the combined ratio reflected substantially lower catastrophe losses offset by a 16.8 point increase in the underlying combined ratio versus last year’s second quarter. The underlying auto loss ratio rose to 68.0%, reflecting both the anticipated increase in frequency as driving behaviors return to normal as well as higher severity due to inflationary pressure that are driving loss costs higher than 2020. Due in part to continued underwriting discipline, the underlying auto loss ratio remains below 2019 levels. The underlying property loss ratio rose to 59.2% for the quarter, driven primarily by increased frequency and severity of fire and non-weather water losses as well as overall inflation due to the cost of labor and materials.

    In the second quarter, policyholders’ losses from 17 catastrophe events were $17.5 million, adding 11.3 points to the combined ratio compared to $34.7 million or 22.2 points in last year’s second quarter. The company’s updated full-year 2021 guidance assumes second-half catastrophe losses will contribute between $20 million and $25 million, in line with the 10-year average for second-half catastrophe losses.

    Supplemental segment contributed $12.0 million to second-quarter earnings

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Supplemental insurance segment specializes in marketing supplemental insurance products, including cancer, heart, hospital, supplemental disability and accident for the education market. The segment represented 12% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $43.1 million to 2020 core earnings.

    Measured to total revenues.

    Supplemental segment sales were $1.2 million in the second quarter, which improved over the 2021 first quarter as well as last year’s second quarter, but continued to reflect limited school access because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sales growth is expected to accelerate through the second half of the year with the anticipated return to in-person learning this fall. Persistency remained very strong at 90.7%.

    Strong core earnings reflected higher net investment income as well as favorable business trends including some continued short-term benefit from changes in policyholder behavior due to COVID-19. Segment expenses include the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets under purchase accounting that reduced core earnings by $3.0 million pretax. The pretax profit margin remains above management’s longer-term expectations because of the pandemic-related changes in policyholder behavior.

    Retirement segment benefits from strong net investment spread

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Retirement segment primarily markets 403(b) tax-qualified fixed, fixed index and variable annuities; the Horace Mann Retirement Advantage® open architecture platform for 403(b)(7) and other defined contribution plans; and other retirement products to educators. Horace Mann is one of the largest participants in the K-12 educator portion of the 403(b) tax-qualified annuity market, measured by 403(b) net written premium on a statutory accounting basis. The Retirement segment represented 21% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $28.2 million to 2020 core earnings.

    Includes Annuity AUM, Brokerage and Advisory AUA, and Recordkeeping AUA.

    Net annuity contract deposits rose 15.6% over last year’s second quarter. Horace Mann’s relationships with educators often begins with our 403(b) retirement savings products, including our attractive annuity products, and we are encouraged by the cross-sell opportunities they provide. Total cash value persistency remained strong at 94.8% for variable annuities and 95.0% for fixed annuities.

    Horace Mann currently has $5.2 billion in annuity assets under management, including $2.2 billion of fixed annuities, $2.5 billion of variable annuities and $0.5 billion of fixed indexed annuities. Assets under administration, which includes Retirement Advantage and other advisory and recordkeeping assets, was up 17.2% from a year ago, as assets under management rose largely due to strong equity market performance over the past 12 months.

    The net interest spread was 265 points, reflecting the strong returns from the alternatives portfolio. Core earnings excluding DAC unlocking was up 88.3%, primarily due to the strong net interest margin.

    Life segment second-quarter core earnings more than doubled over prior year

    (All comparisons vs. same period in 2020, unless noted otherwise)

    The Life insurance segment primarily markets traditional term and whole life insurance products to educators. The Life segment represented 14% of 2020 total revenues and contributed $10.4 million to 2020 core earnings.

Life core earnings for the quarter rose $3.1 million, reflecting strong net investment income growth and mortality costs in line with actuarial expectations. Full-year persistency for life products of 96.0% remains in line with prior periods.

    N.M. – Not meaningful.

    Total net investment income was up 35.8% or $28.8 million. Net investment income on the managed portfolio rose 48.8%, reflecting outsized returns in the alternatives portfolio in the second quarter, primarily benefiting the Property and Casualty segment. Several private equity funds saw realizations significantly above expectations during the quarter.

    Pretax net investment gains (losses) were $4.9 million, with immaterial impairments on investments. The company’s fixed maturity securities portfolio is in a net unrealized investment gain position of $505.6 million at June 30, 2021.

    Book value excluding net unrealized investment gains up 9% year over year

    At June 30, 2021, shareholders’ equity was $1.82 billion, or $43.78 per share. Excluding net unrealized investment gains on fixed maturity securities, shareholders’ equity was $1.48 billion, or $35.78 per share.* At June 30, 2021, total debt was $413.5 million, with $135.0 million outstanding on the company’s line of credit. The ratio of debt-to-capital excluding net unrealized investment gains* was 21.8%.

    As of June 30, 2021, $19.1 million remained authorized for future share repurchases under the share repurchase program.

    Segment guidance

    The company’s current guidance is for 2021 EPS in the range of $3.50 to $3.70 with core return on equity above 10%. Guidance was raised on July 1 from $3.00 to $3.20 due to strong second-quarter net investment income returns and lower-than-guided second-quarter catastrophe losses. Total 2021 net investment income now is expected to be in the range of $385 million to $405 million, largely due to a strong contribution from the alternative investment portfolio across all segments. In addition to improved net investment income, the revised full-year 2021 guidance assumes:

    • Property and Casualty 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $66 million to $70 million. Expected lower catastrophe losses are offset by an increase in the underlying loss ratio.
    • Retirement 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $43 million to $45 million.
    • Life 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $14 million to $16 million as higher first quarter 2021 mortality costs offset the anticipated increase in full-year net investment income.
    • Supplemental 2021 core earnings now expected to be in the range of $41 million to $43 million in part due to a better than anticipated benefits ratio.
