  • Midwest Holding Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2023 Results

    November 14, 2023 by Midwest Holding Inc

    LINCOLN, Neb.Nov. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Midwest Holding Inc. (“Midwest”) (NASDAQ: MDWT), today announced financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2023.

    Highlights for the third quarter of 2023:

    • GAAP net income for the quarter was $0.4 million compared with $7.4 million for the third quarter of 2022. GAAP earnings were $0.10 per share (diluted) versus $1.96 per share (diluted) for the third quarter of 2022.


    • GAAP total revenue was $16.4 million compared with revenue of $19.0 million in the third quarter of 2022, driven by an increase in investment income from growth in invested assets retained, higher service fees, and growing amortization of deferred ceding commissions. The mark-to-market change in derivatives also generated a loss in the quarter compared to a gain in the same quarter in the prior year.


    • Annuity direct written premium under statutory accounting principles (“SAP”), a non-GAAP measure, was up 1.3% to $258.8 million for the quarter from $255.5 million in the same period of 2022. The mix of new business in the quarter was 50% Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuities (MYGA) and 50% Fixed Indexed Annuities (FIA).


    • Ceded premiums (SAP), a non-GAAP measure, were $59.1 million in the third quarter of the current year compared to $113.7 million in the third quarter of the prior year. The cession rate for the current period, or that portion of our written premium that we reinsured, was 20% compared to 45% in the same period last year.


    • Total expenses decreased to $9.0 million from $14.3 million in the third quarter of last year resulting from lower interest credited impacted by the change in value of the options embedded in our liabilities, and from a benefit related to the mark-to-market value of the options allowance included in other operating expenses. Other expenses have increased from variable costs associated with increased premiums written related to technology, distribution, product fees, and premium taxes along with expenses related to state expansion and capital initiatives. Salaries and benefits remained constant with the addition, repositioning, and retention of personnel to support growth and manage a tighter labor market.


    • Invested assets grew to $2,268.3 million at September 30, 2023 compared with $1,615.0 million at December 31, 2022. The retained portfolio was $1,213.0 million as of September 30, 2023 compared to $812.2 million at December 31, 2022. Third-party assets under management were $531.6 million at September 30, 2023, compared to $501.9 million at December 31, 2022.


    • On April 30, 2023, Midwest Holding Inc. entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with affiliates of Antarctica Capital, LLC, whereby an affiliate of Antarctica will acquire Midwest in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $100 million. The transaction was approved by stockholders on July 26, 2023, and has been approved by the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation. The merger is still subject to the approval of the Nebraska Department of Insurance. We continue to work with Antarctica to provide all information requested by the Nebraska Department of Insurance (NDOI). Upon completion of the NDOI review, a public NDOI hearing will be required before final regulatory approval is received to proceed with closing the merger. We still anticipate closing the transaction shortly after the hearing and by year-end.

    Highlights for the nine months ended September 30, 2023:

    • GAAP net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $0.3 million compared with $16.9 million in the same period in the prior year. GAAP earnings were $0.09 per share (diluted) versus $4.45 per share (diluted) in the prior year.


    • GAAP total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $83.9 million compared with $21.5 million in the same period in the prior year. The increase included additional investment income from growth in invested assets retained, higher policy administration fees, and growing amortization of deferred ceding commissions. The mark-to-market change in derivatives also generated a gain in the nine months compared to a loss in the same period in the prior year.


    • Annuity direct written premium under statutory accounting principles (“SAP”), a non-GAAP measure, was up 40.6% to $716.5 million in the first nine months of 2023 from $509.7 million in the same nine months of 2022, due to a focus on distribution and pricing. The mix of new business for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was 58% Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuities (MYGA) and 42% Fixed Indexed Annuities (FIA).


    • Ceded premiums (SAP), a non-GAAP measure, were $277.5 million in the first nine months of 2023 compared to $213.8 million in the same nine months of the prior year. The cession rate for the period, or that portion of our written premium that we reinsured, was 39% compared to 42% in the same period last year.


    • Total expenses for the first nine months of 2023 increased to $65.3 million from $9.6 million in the first nine months of last year resulting from interest credited as an expense (impacted by the change in value of the options embedded in our liabilities), compared to negative interest credited in the first nine months of the prior year, and from a benefit related to the mark-to-market value of the options allowance included in other operating expenses. Other expenses have increased from variable costs associated with increased premiums written related to technology, distribution, product fees, and premium taxes along with expenses related to state expansion and capital initiatives. Salaries and benefits increased with the addition, repositioning, and retention of personnel to support growth and manage a tighter labor market.

    Georgette Nicholas, CEO of Midwest noted, “Midwest is focused on executing our business strategy and positioning the Company for further growth. We are actively working with Antarctica to close the merger transaction by year-end.”

    Q3 2023 versus Q3 2022 on a GAAP basis

    Midwest reported net income of $0.4 million for the third quarter of the current year; this compares with income of $7.4 million in the third quarter of the prior year.  On a diluted, per-share basis, net income was $0.10 in the third quarter, compared with $1.96 reported in the third quarter of 2022.

    Investment income rose in the third quarter of 2023 to $20.8 million from $12.9 million in the same period for the prior year.  Driving the change was an increase in invested assets as well as performance on those assets, benefiting from sourcing investments with a higher yield. 

    Amortization of deferred gain on reinsurance reached $1.4 million this quarter compared with $1.2 million in Q3 2022.  This was due to growth in the deferred gain on co-insurance on the balance sheet to $44.1 million compared to $38.1 million at year end, which reflects ceding commission received on reinsurance with third parties. 

    Service fee revenue was at $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2023, up from $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2022. Service fee revenue consists of fee revenue generated by our wholly owned asset manager, 1505 Capital LLC, for asset management services provided to third-party clients.

    Policy administration fee revenue for the quarter was $0.9 million, up from $0.5 million in the same period in 2022. Policy administration fee revenue is generated by providing ancillary services, such as policy administration, to third parties as well as collecting policy surrender charges. The increase was correlated with the growth in policies written and ceded to reinsurance partners. 

    Our expenses were $9.0 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared with $14.3 million in the third quarter of the prior year.   Contributing to the decrease was reduced interest credited expense as well as mark-to-market benefit which is included in other operating expenses. Total expenses have increased from variable costs associated with increased premiums written related to technology, distribution, product fees, and premium taxes along with expenses related to state expansion and capital initiatives. Salaries and benefits increased with the addition, repositioning, and retention of personnel to support growth and manage a tighter labor market. 

    Nine Months Ended September 30, 2023 versus Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022 on a GAAP basis

    Midwest reported net income of $0.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023; this compares with income of $16.9 million in the same period of the prior year.  On a diluted, per-share basis, this year’s to date net income was negative $0.09 compared with $4.45 reported at September 30, 2022.

    Investment income rose in the first nine months of 2023 to $64.2 million from $29.7 million in the same period for the prior year.  Driving the change was an increase in invested assets as well as performance on those assets, benefiting from sourcing investments with a higher yield. 

    Amortization of deferred gain on reinsurance reached $4.5 million for the first nine months of 2023 compared with $3.3 million in the same period of 2022.  This was due to growth in the deferred gain on co-insurance on the balance sheet to $44.1 million compared to $38.1 million at year end, which reflects ceding commission received on reinsurance with third parties. 

    Service fee revenue was at $3.6 million in the first nine months of 2023, up from $1.6 million in the same period of 2022. Service fee revenue consists of fee revenue generated by our wholly owned asset manager, 1505 Capital LLC, for asset management services provided to third-party clients.

    Policy administration fee revenue for the first nine months of 2023 was $2.0 million versus $1.4 million in the same period in 2022. Policy administration fee revenue is generated by providing ancillary services, such as policy administration, to third parties as well as collecting policy surrender charges. The increase was correlated with the growth in policies written and ceded to reinsurance partners. 

    Our expenses were $65.3 million in the first three quarters of 2023 compared with $9.6 million in the first three quarters of the prior year.   Contributing to the increase was interest credited expense as well as mark-to-market expense which is included in other operating expenses. Other expenses have increased from variable costs associated with increased premiums written related to technology, distribution, product fees, and premium taxes along with expenses related to state expansion and capital initiatives. Salaries and benefits increased with the addition, repositioning, and retention of personnel to support growth and manage a tighter labor market.

    Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2023

    In addition to GAAP measures, Midwest’s management utilizes a series of key performance indicators (KPI’s) and non-GAAP measures to, among other things:

    • monitor and evaluate the performance of our business operations and financial performance;


    • facilitate internal comparisons of the historical operating performance of our business operations;


    • review and assess the operating performance of our management team;


    • analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operations;


    • plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments; and


    • facilitate comparison of results between periods and to better understand the underlying historical trends in our business and prospects.

    These non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures; however, management believes that when used in conjunction with the GAAP measures, the non-GAAP measures can contribute to investors’ understanding of the progress of our business. Non-GAAP financial measures used by us may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, our operating performance measures as prescribed by GAAP.

    Annuity Premiums (a KPI)

    For the third quarter of 2023, annuity direct written premiums were $258.8 million compared with $255.5 million in the third quarter of 2022.   Ceded premiums were $59.1 million in 2023’s third quarter compared to $113.7 million in the third quarter of 2022.  Of the third quarter 2023 sales of $258.8 million, 50% was in the MYGA category and the remaining 50% consisted of sales of FIA.

    For the first nine months of 2023, annuity direct written premiums were $716.5 million compared with $509.7 million in the same period of 2022.   Ceded premiums were $277.5 million in 2023’s first nine months compared to $213.8 million in the first nine months of 2022.  Of the 2023 year to date sales of $716.5 million, 58% was in the MYGA category and the remaining 42% consisted of sales of FIA.

    Fees Received for Reinsurance (a KPI)

    Fees received for reinsurance amounted to $2.3 million in the third quarter compared to $4.5 million in the prior year third quarter. Fees received for reinsurance for the nine months ending September 30, 2023 were $10.5 million compared to $10.1 million in the same nine months of the prior year. We use this non-GAAP figure to measure the progress of our effort to secure third-party capital to back our reinsurance programs.   Fees received for reinsurance sums two components: Amortization of deferred gain on reinsurance, which is a line item in our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss, and deferred coinsurance ceding commission, which is a line item in our GAAP Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

    General and Administrative (“G&A”) Expenses (a non-GAAP measure)

    We monitor this figure to track our overhead.  It includes salary and benefits and other operating expenses; however, it excludes non-cash stock-based compensation and the non-cash mark-to-market-adjustment of our option budget allowance.

    G&A expenses in Q3 2023 have increased to $10.5 million from $9.0 million at the same point in the prior year.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 expenses rose to $34.6 million compared to $24.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

    Total expenses have increased from variable costs associated with increased premiums written related to technology, distribution, product fees, and premium taxes along with expenses related to state expansion and capital initiatives. Salaries and benefits increased with the addition, repositioning, and retention of personnel to support growth and manage a tighter labor market. 

    Management Expenses (a non-GAAP measure)

    We use this figure to monitor the expenses of our business on a cash basis.   Importantly, we exclude from the calculation of management expenses the index interest credited related to our FIAs because this expense is fully hedged.   Instead, we add back to Management Expenses the period’s amortization of options previously purchased to provide this hedge. We view this amortized cost as our true cost of funds.   Management Expenses also excludes the mark-to-market adjustment of our option budget allowance, as that is recorded as a component of other operating expense.

    Management expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were $23.2 million compared with $14.9 million in the same period of the prior year. Management expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $59.3 million compared to $38.5 million for the same nine months in 2022. Principal drivers of the increase were higher interest credited and increases in expenses from retained premiums along with the increase in G&A noted above.
