Financial report summary

National General
  • We are subject to losses from catastrophic events.
  • Our ability to reduce our risk exposure depends on the availability and cost of reinsurance.
  • We may be subject to potentially significant losses from acts of terrorism.
  • We are exposed to credit risk.
  • We depend on distribution partners.
  • National and global economic conditions could adversely and materially affect our business, results of operations, financial condition, and growth.
  • A downgrade or a potential downgrade in our financial strength or credit ratings could result in a loss of business and could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
  • We have less loss experience data than our larger competitors.
  • We are subject to various modeling risks that could have a material adverse impact on our business results.
  • Our investments are exposed to credit risk, interest rate fluctuation, and changes in value.
  • We have securities tied to LIBOR, which may be eliminated by the end of 2021.
  • We are subject to the types of risks inherent in investing in private limited partnerships.
  • The determination of the amount of credit losses taken on our investments is highly subjective and could materially impact our results of operations or our financial position.
  • We are engaged in ordinary routine legal proceedings incidental to our insurance operations that, because litigation outcomes are inherently unpredictable, could impact our reputation and/or have a material adverse effect on our consolidated results of operations or cash flows in particular quarterly or annual periods.
  • We are a holding company, and our ability to declare dividends to our shareholders, pay indebtedness, and enter into affiliate transactions may be limited because our Insurance Subsidiaries are regulated.
  • Because we are a New Jersey corporation and an insurance holding company, we may be less attractive to potential acquirers and the value of our common stock could be adversely affected.
  • We, our distribution partners, and our vendors are subject to attempted cyber-attacks, other cybersecurity risks, and system availability risk.
  • Our long-term strategy to deploy operational leverage is dependent on the success of our risk management strategies, and their failure could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.
Management Discussion
  • In First Quarter 2021, NPW increased 23% from a year ago, of which 12 points were due to the COVID-19-related $75 million return audit and mid-term endorsement premium accrual that reduced First Quarter 2020 NPW. NPW growth included overall renewal pure price increases of 5.4% and higher commercial lines retention. This solid growth continues to reflect the strong relationships we have with our best-in-class distribution partners, our sophisticated underwriting and pricing tools, and excellent customer servicing capabilities.
  • For additional qualitative reserve development discussion, please refer to the insurance segment sections below in "Results of Operations and Related Information by Segment."
  • The underwriting expense ratio decreased 3.1 points in First Quarter 2021 compared to First Quarter 2020, primarily driven by a 1.6-point change related to our allowance for credit losses on premiums receivable. We increased this allowance by $10.5 million during 2020 due to heightened credit risk resulting from the COVID-19-related billing accommodations we offered customers that increased earned but uncollected premiums during the year. This credit risk returned to pre-COVID-19 levels in 2021, and the allowance did not require further adjustment in First Quarter 2021. The existing allowance is expected to be sufficient to cover anticipated write-offs that will occur over the corresponding collections cycle, which could last more than a year. In addition, our underwriting expense ratio decreased 1.1 points in First Quarter 2021, compared to the same prior-year period, due to temporary expense reductions in labor and travel expenses as a result of COVID-19.
