Scott Egan, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our Third Quarter results show demonstrable progress year-over-year, despite catastrophes in the quarter, including the significant impact of Hurricane Ian. We are seeing improvements as a result of underwriting actions taken over the last eighteen months, which are gaining momentum. Our focus is on making SiriusPoint a more efficient, more profitable, underwriting first business. Our 2022 performance to date shows that we are not standing still in this regard, and we anticipate further progress as we continue to develop and execute our plans.”

In addition to SiriusPoint’s third quarter financial results, the Company announces today that SiriusPoint is restructuring its underwriting platform to support the future shape of its business. As part of its ongoing strategy to strengthen underwriting results and align the Company’s operating platform to its business portfolio, SiriusPoint will be making changes to the structure and composition of its international branch network. The Company will reduce the locations from which it underwrites property catastrophe reinsurance. As a result, SiriusPoint will close its offices in Hamburg, Miami and Singapore, and reduce its footprint in Liege and Toronto. Following the anticipated closures and scaling of its operating platform, SiriusPoint will continue to serve clients and underwrite North American property catastrophe business from Bermuda, and international property catastrophe business from Stockholm.

“Today’s announcement and the rescaling of our property catastrophe platform is an important step in stabilizing SiriusPoint’s reinsurance business and positioning the Company for underwriting profitability in this volatile market,” Egan said. “With these actions, we provide clarity on our future priorities, our risk appetite, and our strategy to win in a competitive market. As a result of this transformation, we believe that SiriusPoint will be a more disciplined company and better positioned to adapt to market developments more quickly and more effectively.”

Egan added, “The decision to reduce our global footprint and headcount was not an easy one. It was driven by the significant, increasing effects of climate change, including under-modelled perils, and the challenges faced by the catastrophe reinsurance market, which, for consecutive years, has seen poor historical performance and inadequate returns on capital. My executive management team and I are fully committed to enabling a smooth transition for our colleagues who will be impacted by this change.”

Looking ahead, I have complete confidence in our executive leadership team and the wider Company to navigate this period of transition as we work to build a sustainable and profitable business.”

SiriusPoint also notes changes to its Executive Leadership team in today’s announcement.

Monica Cramér Manhem, a member of SiriusPoint’s Executive Leadership team, President International Reinsurance and CEO SiriusPoint International, has made the decision to retire. Ms. Cramér Manhem will remain in her role and continue to lead the Company’s international business, as she works with Scott Egan to appoint a successor. Egan commented: “Despite being a newcomer to SiriusPoint, I have no doubt about the significance of the role Monica has played in the Company over her esteemed 40-year career. On behalf of all of her colleagues I would like to thank her for her commitment and dedication. I am very grateful to Monica for her continued leadership as we navigate change in our international platform.”

David Govrin has been promoted to the expanded role of Global President of SiriusPoint and Chief Underwriting Officer. “David has led the underwriting transformation at SiriusPoint, which is in its early days but showing significant progress. He has outstanding experience and credentials in insurance and reinsurance, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with him as we position SiriusPoint for the future,” said Egan

Additionally, Dhruv Gahlaut is joining the Company and the Executive Leadership team as Head of Investor Relations and Chief Strategy Officer, bringing equity analyst experience from companies including HSBC and Legal and General. “Awareness and understanding of the Company and its journey among the investor community will be key as SiriusPoint continues to evolve,” said Egan. “Dhruv’s analyst experience and background in equity research will aid our drive to attain a fair valuation of the company.”

Third Quarter 2022 Summary

Consolidated underwriting loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $46.9 million compared to $237.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The improvement in underwriting results was driven by lower catastrophe losses compared to the prior year period. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $114.6 million, or 18.7 percentage points on the combined ratio, for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $286.5 million, or 57.3 percentage points on the combined ratio, for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Consolidated underwriting income for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $25.4 million compared to an underwriting loss of $180.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The change in underwriting results was driven by lower catastrophe losses compared to the prior year period. Catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $137.7 million, or 8.0 percentage points on the combined ratio, for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $304.9 million, or 25.5 percentage points on the combined ratio, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

The lower catastrophe losses were a result of our significant reduction in catastrophe exposed business.

Reportable Segments

The determination of our reportable segments is based on the manner in which management monitors the performance of our operations. In the fourth quarter of 2021, we began classifying our business into two reportable segments - Reinsurance and Insurance & Services.

Core Underwriting Results

Collectively, the sum of our two segments, Reinsurance and Insurance & Services, constitute our "Core" results. Core underwriting income, Core net services income, Core income and Core combined ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. See reconciliations in “Segment Reporting”. We believe it is important to review Core results as it better reflects how management views the business and reflects our decision to exit the runoff business. The sum of Core results and Corporate results are equal to the consolidated results of operations.

Three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Core results for the three months ended September 30, 2022 included a loss of $75.4 million compared to $243.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022 consists of an underwriting loss of $88.3 million (114.5% combined ratio) and net services income of $12.9 million, compared to an underwriting loss of $244.6 million (150.2% combined ratio) and net services income of $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The improvement in underwriting results was primarily driven by lower catastrophe losses, partially offset by lower favorable loss reserve development. The increase in net services income was primarily due to the continued business growth in IMG, which benefited from increased demand for its travel insurance products and services, as well as additional revenue from new MGA relationships compared to the prior year period.

For the three months ended September 30, 2022 catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $114.6 million, or 18.8 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $80.1 million for Hurricane Ian and $34.5 million for other third quarter catastrophe events, compared to $283.5 million, or 58.2 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $132 million for the European floods and $100 million for Hurricane Ida, for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Core results for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 included a loss of $28.5 million compared to $145.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 consists of an underwriting loss of $66.0 million (103.9% combined ratio) and net services income of $37.5 million, compared to an underwriting loss of $198.1 million (116.6% combined ratio) and net services income of $52.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The improvement in underwriting results was primarily driven by lower catastrophe losses. The change in net services income was primarily driven by the gain from our investment in Pie Insurance included in the nine months ended September 30, 2021, partially offset by higher margins achieved in our IMG business for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, were $137.7 million, or 8.1 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $80.1 million for Hurricane Ian and $57.6 million for other catastrophe events, including South African floods and French hail storms, compared to $301.9 million, or 25.2 percentage points on the combined ratio, including $132 million for the European floods and $100 million for Hurricane Ida, as well as $40 million from June windstorms and winter storm Uri, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, losses from the Russia/Ukraine conflict, including losses from the political risk, trade credit, and aviation lines of business, were $12.9 million, or 0.8 percentage points on the combined ratio.

Reinsurance Segment

Three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Reinsurance incurred a segment loss of $75.9 million (126.1% combined ratio) for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $262.6 million (180.5% combined ratio) for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in net underwriting results for the three months ended September 30, 2022 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2021 was due to lower catastrophe losses and higher favorable loss reserve development.

Reinsurance gross premiums written were $318.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a decrease of $76.9 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2021, driven by both Property and Casualty lines as we rebalance the portfolio towards Insurance & Services.

Nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Reinsurance generated a segment loss of $73.0 million (108.2% combined ratio) for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $217.3 million (125.3% combined ratio) for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The change in net underwriting results for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was due primarily to lower catastrophe losses and higher favorable loss reserve development.

Reinsurance gross premiums written were $1,220.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $289.3 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021, primarily driven by a full quarter of legacy Sirius Group premiums in the first quarter of 2022 and lower premiums written on Casualty lines as we rebalance the portfolio towards Insurance & Services.

Insurance & Services Segment

Three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Insurance & Services generated segment income of $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $18.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Segment income for the three months ended September 30, 2022 consists of an underwriting loss of $8.7 million (102.8% combined ratio) and net services income of $9.2 million, compared to underwriting income of $18.0 million (88.8% combined ratio) and net services income of $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The decline in underwriting results for the 2022 period was primarily driven by the increase in adverse loss reserve development. The increase in net services income is primarily driven by higher margins achieved in our IMG business.

Insurance & Services gross premiums written were $524.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $284.3 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2021, primarily driven by growth in our property & casualty strategic partnerships with Corvus Insurance, Pie Insurance and Arcadian, as well as growth in A&H.

Nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Insurance & Services generated segment income of $44.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $71.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Segment income for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 consists of underwriting income of $10.7 million (98.5% combined ratio) and net services income of $33.8 million, compared to underwriting income of $19.5 million (94.2% combined ratio) and net services income of $52.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The decline in underwriting results for the 2022 period was primarily driven by an increase in adverse loss reserve development. The decrease in net services income is primarily driven by the gain from our investment in Pie Insurance included in the nine months ended September 30, 2021, partially offset by higher margins achieved in our IMG business for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Insurance & Services gross premiums written were $1,442.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $814.3 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021, primarily driven by growth across Insurance & Services and growth in premiums from strategic partnerships, mainly Arcadian and Corvus Insurance, and A&H, as well as the nine months ended September 30, 2021 reflecting only a partial quarter in the first quarter of 2021 from the legacy Sirius Group companies.

Investments

Three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021

Total realized and unrealized investment gains (losses) and net investment income was $(28.2) million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $199.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Investment results for the three months ended September 30, 2022 were primarily attributable to losses on the fixed income portfolio of $8.7 million, or a (1.2)% return, on our debt securities primarily due to rising interest rates and to a lesser extent foreign currency movements and widening credit spreads. Our fixed income portfolio is positioned shorter than liabilities driven by rising interest rates and foreign exchange losses due to strengthening of the U.S. dollar against global currencies. We also recognized a net investment loss of $8.4 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a (3.2)% return. The return was attributable to losses from short event/fundamental equities; long activist positions; corporate credit; and late stage private positions. These losses were partially offset by income from interest rate hedges, long event/fundamental equities, activist hedges and structured credit positions.

Investment results for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were driven by net investment income of $201.0 million from our investment in the TP Enhanced Fund, corresponding to a 16.3% return.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Financial Metrics

In presenting SiriusPoint’s results, management has included financial measures that are not calculated under standards or rules that comprise accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). SiriusPoint’s management uses this information in its internal analysis of results and believes that this information may be informative to investors in gauging the quality of SiriusPoint’s financial performance, identifying trends in our results and providing meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Core underwriting income, Core net services income, Core income, and Core combined ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes it is important to review Core results as it better reflects how management views the business and reflects the Company’s decision to exit the runoff business. Basic book value per share, tangible basic book value per share, diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share are also non-GAAP financial measures. SiriusPoint’s management believes that long-term growth in book value per share is an important measure of the Company’s financial performance because it allows management and investors to track over time the value created by the retention of earnings. In addition, SiriusPoint’s management believes this metric is useful to investors because it provides a basis for comparison with other companies in the industry that also report a similar measure. Reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures are included in the attached financial information in accordance with Regulation G.

SIRIUSPOINT LTD.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND RECONCILIATIONS & OTHER FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Core Results

Collectively, the sum of the Company's two segments, Reinsurance and Insurance & Services, constitute "Core" results. Core underwriting income, Core net services income, Core income and Core combined ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe it is important to review Core results as it better reflects how management views the business and reflects our decision to exit the runoff business. The sum of Core results and Corporate results are equal to the consolidated results of operations.

Core underwriting income - calculated by subtracting loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred, net, acquisition costs, net, and other underwriting expenses from net premiums earned.

Core net services income - consists of services revenues which include commissions, brokerage and fee income related to consolidated MGAs, and other revenues, services expenses which include direct expenses related to consolidated MGAs, services noncontrolling income which represent minority ownership interests in consolidated MGAs, and net investment gains from Strategic Investments which are net investment gains/losses from investment in our strategic partners. Net services income is a key indicator of the profitability of the Company's services provided, including investment returns on non-consolidated investment positions held.

Core income - consists of two components, core underwriting income and core net services income. Core income is a key measure of our segment performance.

Basic Book Value Per Share, Tangible Basic Book Value Per Share, Diluted Book Value Per Share, Tangible Diluted Book Value Per Share

Basic book value per share, as presented, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by dividing common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders by the number of common shares outstanding, excluding the total number of issued unvested restricted shares, at period end. While restricted shares are outstanding, they are excluded from Basic book value per share because they are unvested.

Tangible basic book value per share, as presented, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity attributable to SiriusPoint common shareholders by the number of common shares outstanding, excluding the total number of unvested restricted shares, at period end. Management believes that effects of intangible assets are not indicative of underlying underwriting results or trends and make book value comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies less meaningful. The Company's management believes tangible book value per share is useful to investors because it provides a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of intangible assets.

Diluted book value per share and tangible diluted book value per share, as presented, are non-GAAP financial measures and are calculated similar to the treasury stock method. Under the treasury stock method, we assume that proceeds received from in-the-money options and/or warrants exercised are used to repurchase common shares in the market. The dilutive effect of restricted shares, restricted share units and options are calculated in a manner consistent with how dilution is calculated using the treasury stock method for earnings per share. We have also followed a similar approach for calculating dilution for warrants, Series A preference shares, Upside Rights and other potentially dilutive securities issued as part of our acquisition of Sirius Group. Management believes these measures are useful to investors because they measure the realizable value of shareholder returns in a manner consistent with how dilution is calculated using the treasury stock method for earnings per share. Management believes that effects of intangible assets are not indicative of underlying underwriting results or trends and make book value comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies less meaningful. Also, the tangible diluted book value per share is useful because it provides a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding intangible assets.
