(NYSE:FG) (“F&G”), today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and twelve months (full year) ended December 31, 2023.

    Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter of $69 million, or $0.25 per diluted share (per share), compared to $5 million, or $0.02 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2022.  Full year net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $517 million, or $1.91 per share, compared to $1.3 billion, or $4.67 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2022.  Net earnings attributable to common shareholders include mark-to-market effects and non-recurring items; all of which are excluded from adjusted net earnings attributable to common shareholders.

    Adjusted net earnings attributable to common shareholders (adjusted net earnings) for the fourth quarter of $204 million, or $0.75 per share, compared to $274 million, or $1.01 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2022. Full year adjusted net earnings of $962 million, or $3.55 per share, compared to $1.5 billion, or $5.38 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2022.

    • The Title Segment contributed $174 million and $760 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, respectively, compared to $180 million and $1.2 billion for the fourth quarter and full year 2022, respectively
    • The F&G Segment contributed $64 million and $285 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, respectively, compared to $119 million and $342 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2022, respectively
    • The Corporate Segment had adjusted net losses of $34 million and $83 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, respectively, compared to adjusted net losses of $25 million and $83 million for the fourth quarter and full year of 2022
    • The full year results reflect Title’s considerable decline in volumes as compared to the prior year given higher mortgage rates. F&G’s adjusted net earnings include alternative investment returns below our long-term expectations of $0.11 and $0.48 for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, respectively, as compared to $0.25 and $0.77 for the fourth quarter and full year 2022, respectively. In addition, F&G’s adjusted net earnings include significant expense items of $0.06 and $0.16 for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, respectively, as compared to significant income items of $0.20 and $0.35 for the fourth quarter and full year 2022, respectively. Please see “Segment Financial Results” for F&G under “Non-GAAP Measures and Other Information” for further explanation

    Company Highlights

    • Solid Title Revenue Despite Current Environment: For the Title Segment, total revenue of $1.7 billion and $7.0 billion for the quarter and full year, respectively, a 7% decrease from $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022, and a 23% decrease from $9.1 billion in full year 2022. Total revenue, excluding recognized gains and losses, of $1.7 billion for the fourth quarter, a 9% decrease from $1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022, and $7.0 billion for the full year, a 26% decrease from full year 2022
    • Record F&G Segment gross sales and record assets under management: For the F&G Segment, gross sales of $4.1 billion for the fourth quarter, a 52% increase from the fourth quarter of 2022. Gross sales of $13.2 billion for the full year, a 17% increase from full year 2022. F&G achieved record assets under management (AUM) of $49.5 billion as of December 31, 2023
    • Ample deployable capital in a challenging market: FNF paid common dividends of $0.48 per share for $133 million and ended the fourth quarter with $886 million in cash and short-term liquid investments at the holding company. As announced last week, the board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.48 per share, payable March 29, 2024, to shareholders of record as of March 15, 2024

    William P. Foley, II, Chairman, commented, “Our fourth quarter and full year results clearly demonstrate both the strength of our business combined with our durable competitive advantage in the market that continues to grow.  This can be seen in our Title business which delivered an industry leading adjusted pre-tax title margin of 13.7% for the full year in what has been the most challenging mortgage market in more than three decades.  Additionally, F&G achieved record assets under management of $49.5 billion, rising 14% as compared to year end 2022, and significantly outpacing our expectations.  F&G now comprises 30% of FNF’s annual adjusted net earnings, which provides an important counter cyclical earnings stream with strong growth tailwinds supported by F&G’s recent ratings upgrades from both Moody’s and AM Best.”

    Mr. Foley continued, “In light of F&G’s success, we made the decision to invest $250 million given their many opportunities to grow and expand their business.  This capital will allow F&G to accelerate their retained asset growth.  We also deployed $300 million across more than ten acquisitions as we opportunistically expand our Title business through the downturn.  Looking forward, we will continue to pursue a balanced capital allocation strategy focused on growing our business through attractive acquisitions while maintaining a steady return of capital to our shareholders.”

    Segment Financial Results

    Title Segment

    This segment consists of the operations of the Company’s title insurance underwriters and related businesses, which provide core title insurance and escrow and other title-related services including loan sub-servicing, valuations, default services, and home warranty products.

    Mike Nolan, Chief Executive Officer, said, “Over the past year we have demonstrated our capability to closely manage our expenses as mortgage volumes have continued to decline as a result of the persistent rise in mortgage rates.  A clear benefit of our financial strength, scale, and profitability is our ability to strategically build and expand our Title business by investing in technology, recruiting talent and making acquisitions, which we have continued to do while maintaining our industry leading margins.”

    Mr. Nolan added, “Looking ahead, we are well positioned for the current market and poised to benefit from the eventual turn in the housing market.  Importantly, we remain optimistic on the longer-term fundamentals of the housing market given the favorable demographic trends that continue to build in the U.S.”

    Fourth Quarter 2023 Highlights

    • Total revenue of $1.7 billion, compared with $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022
    • Total revenue, excluding recognized gains and losses, of $1.7 billion, a 9% decrease from fourth quarter of 2022

    Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

    • Pre-tax title margin of 14.0% and industry leading adjusted pre-tax title margin of 11.8% for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to 12.7% and 12.3%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2022. The Company’s cyber security incident negatively impacted adjusted pre-tax title margin in the fourth quarter of 2023 by approximately 0.5%; excluding this one-time item, adjusted pre-tax title margin for the fourth quarter of 2023 was in line with the prior year quarter
    • Pre-tax earnings from continuing operations in Title for the fourth quarter of $245 million, compared with $239 million for the fourth quarter of 2022
    • Adjusted pre-tax earnings in Title for the fourth quarter of $198 million compared with $227 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. The decrease from the prior year quarter was primarily a result of the considerable decline in residential and commercial volumes due to higher mortgage rates

    Full year 2023 Financial Results

    • Total revenue, excluding recognized gains and losses, of $7.0 billion for the full year, a 26% decrease from $9.5 billion for the full year 2022
    • Pre-tax title margin of 12.5% and adjusted pre-tax title margin of 13.7% for the full year, compared to 12.0% and 16.7% for the full year 2022, respectively; reflects the Company’s noteworthy execution to manage the business despite market conditions in the current economic cycle
    • Pre-tax earnings from continuing operations in Title for the full year of $883 million compared to $1.1 billion for the full year 2022
    • Adjusted pre-tax earnings in Title for the full year of $964 million compared to $1.6 billion for the full year 2022. The decrease from the prior year was primarily a result of historical low volumes due to higher mortgage rates, partially offset by higher average fee per file and healthy volume of commercial orders closed for the full year

    F&G Segment

    This segment consists of operations of FNF’s majority-owned subsidiary F&G, a leading provider of insurance solutions serving retail annuity and life customers and funding agreement and pension risk transfer institutional clients.

    Chris Blunt, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I could not be more proud of our accomplishments over the last year highlighted by record gross sales of more than $13 billion and record AUM of $49.5 billion, the expansion of our flow reinsurance partners which provides diversification and return upside, the strong performance of our investment portfolio combined with an improved yield, and the successful execution of our owned distribution strategy, under which we have now closed on approximately $500 million of acquisitions.”

    Mr. Blunt continued, “Looking at our fourth quarter results in more detail, they were impacted by the interest rate volatility that the annuities industry experienced as rates fell dramatically through the end of the year.  We are able to actively manage our new business and inforce to maintain pricing targets over time in varying rate environments, however, there can be short-term timing lags between precipitous rate movements and dynamic pricing actions as we saw in the fourth quarter.  Nonetheless, the economics and long-term outlook for our business remains unchanged.  I remain optimistic, as we outlined in our recent Investor Day, that we can deliver double digit sales growth in 2024 supported by the launch of our RILA product earlier this month.  Additionally, the drivers to continued margin expansion remain firmly in place as we effectively manage our operating expenses, benefit from enhanced investment margin opportunities and grow the earnings power of F&G.  Lastly, we are well positioned to continue to execute on our owned distribution strategy, which will generate a higher value earnings stream over time.  Our business remains very well positioned for the future as we enter 2024.”    

    Fourth Quarter 2023

    • Record gross sales: Gross sales of $4.1 billion for the fourth quarter, an increase of 52% from $2.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022, driven by record retail channel sales and strong institutional market sales
    • Record profitable Retail channel sales of $3.0 billion for the fourth quarter, a 20% increase from $2.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022, driven by robust multiyear guaranteed annuity sales in the higher rate environment
    • Strong Institutional market sales of $1.1 billion, compared to $0.2 billion of pension risk transfer in the fourth quarter of 2022, driven by higher pension risk transfer and FHLB funding agreement sales
    • Net sales of $2.5 billion for the fourth quarter, compared to $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022
    • Record assets under management (AUM) of $49.5 billion as of December 31, 2023, an increase of 14% from $43.6 billion as of December 31, 2022, driven by net new business flows, stable inforce retention and net debt proceeds over the past twelve months. AUM before flow reinsurance was $56.3 billion as of December 31, 2023
    • Net loss attributable to common shareholders for F&G Segment of $251 million for the fourth quarter due to unfavorable mark-to-market movement, compared to a net loss of $172 million for the fourth quarter of 2022 which included unfavorable mark-to-market movement
    • Adjusted net earnings for F&G Segment of $64 million for the fourth quarter, compared to $119 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. F&G’s adjusted net earnings reflect alternatives investment portfolio short-term mark-to-market movement that differs from long-term return expectation. As compared to the prior year, the adjusted net earnings decrease reflects modest product margin expansion, due to the inherent timing lag between the precipitous decline in rates and our pricing actions in the fourth quarter of 2023, and accretive flow reinsurance fees, which were more than offset by higher interest expense due to planned capital market activity. The fourth quarter of 2023 includes short term investment income from alternative investments and $16 million of significant expense items, whereas the fourth quarter of 2022 included short term investment income from alternative investments and $55 million of significant income items. Please see “Segment Financial Results” for F&G under “Non-GAAP Measures and Other Information” for further explanation.

    Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful in certain instances to provide additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods.  Our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other organizations because other organizations may not calculate such non-GAAP measures in the same manner as we do.

    The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation of or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.  By disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures, FNF believes it offers investors a greater understanding of, and an enhanced level of transparency into, the means by which the Company’s management operates the Company.

    Any non-GAAP measures should be considered in context with the GAAP financial presentation and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP net earnings, net earnings attributable to common shareholders, net earnings per share, or any other measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance or liquidity. Further, FNF’s non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently from similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are provided below.

    Forward-Looking Statements and Risk Factors

    This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements regarding our expectations, hopes, intentions or strategies regarding the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management. Because such statements are based on expectations as to future financial and operating results and are not statements of fact, actual results may differ materially from those projected. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The risks and uncertainties which forward-looking statements are subject to include, but are not limited to: changes in general economic, business, political and COVID-19 conditions, including changes in the financial markets; weakness or adverse changes in the level of real estate activity, which may be caused by, among other things, high or increasing interest rates, a limited supply of mortgage funding or a weak U. S. economy; our potential inability to find suitable acquisition candidates; our dependence on distributions from our title insurance underwriters as a main source of cash flow; significant competition that F&G and our operating subsidiaries face; compliance with extensive government regulation of our operating subsidiaries; and other risks detailed in the “Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information,” “Risk Factors” and other sections of FNF’s Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

      Non-GAAP financial measure. See the Non-GAAP Measures section below for additional information.

    DEFINITIONS  

    The following represents the definitions of non-GAAP measures used by the Company.

    Adjusted Net Earnings Attributable to Common Shareholders (Adjusted Net Earnings)

    Adjusted net earnings is a non-GAAP economic measure we use to evaluate financial performance each period. Adjusted net earnings is calculated by adjusting net earnings (loss) attributable to common shareholders to eliminate:

    i. Recognized (gains) and losses, net: the impact of net investment gains/losses, including changes in allowance for expected credit losses and other than temporary impairment (“OTTI”) losses, recognized in operations; and the effect of changes in fair value of the reinsurance related embedded derivative and other derivatives, including interest rate swaps and forwards;

    ii. Market related liability adjustments: the impacts related to changes in the fair value, including both realized and unrealized gains and losses, of index product related derivatives and embedded derivatives, net of hedging cost; the impact of initial pension risk transfer deferred profit liability losses, including amortization from previously deferred pension risk transfer deferred profit liability losses; and the changes in the fair value of market risk benefits by deferring current period changes and amortizing that amount over the life of the market risk benefit;

    iii. Purchase price amortization: the impacts related to the amortization of certain intangibles (internally developed software, trademarks and value of distribution asset (“VODA”)) recognized as a result of acquisition activities;

    iv. Transaction costs: the impacts related to acquisition, integration and merger related items; 

    v. Certain income tax adjustments: the impacts related to unusual tax items that do not reflect our core operating performance such as the establishment or reversal of significant deferred tax asset valuation allowances in our Title and Corporate and Other segments;

    vi. Other “non-recurring,” “infrequent” or “unusual items”:  Management excludes certain items determined to be “non-recurring,” “infrequent” or “unusual” from adjusted net earnings when incurred if it is determined these expenses are not a reflection of the core business and when the nature of the item is such that it is not reasonably likely to recur within two years and/or there was not a similar item in the preceding two years;

    vii. Income taxes: the income tax impact related to the above mentioned adjustments is measured using an effective tax rate, as appropriate by tax jurisdiction; and

    viii. Non-controlling interest on non-GAAP adjustments: the portion of the non-GAAP adjustments attributable to the equity interest of F&G that FNF does not own

    While these adjustments are an integral part of the overall performance of FNF, market conditions and/or the non-operating nature of these items can overshadow the underlying performance of the core business. Accordingly, management considers this to be a useful measure internally and to investors and analysts in analyzing the trends of our operations. Adjusted net earnings should not be used as a substitute for net earnings (loss). However, we believe the adjustments made to net earnings (loss) in order to derive adjusted net earnings provide an understanding of our overall results of operations.

    Assets Under Management (AUM)

    AUM is comprised of the following components and is reported net of reinsurance qualifying for risk transfer in accordance with GAAP:

    (i) total invested assets at amortized cost, excluding investments in unconsolidated affiliates and derivatives;

    (ii) investments in unconsolidated affiliates at carrying value;

    (iii) related party loans and investments;

    (iv) accrued investment income;

    (v) the net payable/receivable for the purchase/sale of investments; and

    (vi) cash and cash equivalents excluding derivative collateral at the end of the period.

    Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be useful internally and to investors and analysts when assessing the size of our investment portfolio that is retained.

    AUM before Flow Reinsurance

    AUM before Flow Reinsurance is comprised of components consistent with AUM, but also includes flow reinsured assets.

    Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be useful internally and to investors and analysts when assessing the size of our investment portfolio including reinsured assets.

    Average Assets Under Management (AAUM)

    AAUM is calculated as AUM at the beginning of the period and the end of each month in the period, divided by the total number of months in the period plus one.

    Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be useful internally and to investors and analysts when assessing the rate of return on retained assets.

    Sales 

    Annuity, IUL, funding agreement and non-life contingent PRT sales are not derived from any specific GAAP income statement accounts or line items and should not be viewed as a substitute for any financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP.  Sales from these products are recorded as deposit liabilities (i.e. contractholder funds) within the Company’s consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP. Life contingent PRT sales are recorded as premiums in revenues within the consolidated financial statements. Management believes that presentation of sales, as measured for management purposes, enhances the understanding of our business and helps depict longer term trends that may not be apparent in the results of operations due to the timing of sales and revenue recognition.
