Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • In addition, the Company recorded an adjustment of $874 million to net income during 2017. In 2018, the Company completed its analysis of the tax legislation and recorded an additional $798 thousand adjustment related to the remeasurement of the deferred tax assets and liabilities based on the 21% rate. As the impact of the tax legislation was treated as a non-operating event, it was excluded from net operating income.
  • Net operating income as an ROE, excluding net unrealized gains on the fixed maturity portfolio, is also considered a non-GAAP measure. Management utilizes this measure to view the business without the effect of the unrealized gains or losses, which are primarily attributable to fluctuation in interest rates on the available for sale portfolio.
  • Net income was $701 million in 2018, compared with $1.5 billion in 2017. This decrease was primarily due to an $874 million increase to net income in 2017, relating to new tax legislation as described above. Net income increased in 2017 from $550 million in 2016. On a diluted per common share basis, 2018 net income fell 50% to $6.09 after a 172% increase in 2017. Net income per diluted common share in 2017 rose to $12.22 from $4.49 in 2016. As previously noted, 2017 net income per diluted common share includes the effect of the adjustment to net income relating to new tax legislation. The percentage growth in net income per share results continues to exceed the growth in dollar amounts due to our share repurchase program. Each year’s net income per share was affected by realized gains (losses), which were $(0.01), $0.15, and $(0.06), in 2018, 2017 and 2016, respectively. More information concerning realized gains and losses can be found under the caption Realized Gains and Losses in this report.
