Financial report summary

  • The COVID-19 pandemic and measures to mitigate the spread of the virus have resulted in significant risk across CNA’s enterprise, which have had, and may continue to have, material adverse impacts on its business, results of operations and financial condition, the extent of which cannot be determined with any certainty at this time.
  • If CNA determines that its recorded insurance reserves are insufficient to cover its estimated ultimate unpaid liability for claim and claim adjustment expenses, CNA may need to increase its insurance reserves which would result in a charge to CNA’s earnings.
  • CNA’s actual experience could vary from the key assumptions used to determine active life reserves for long term care policies.
  • CNA is vulnerable to material losses from natural and man-made disasters.
  • CNA has exposure related to A&EP claims, which could result in material losses.
  • CNA is exposed to, and may face adverse developments related to, mass tort claims that could arise from its insureds’ sale or use of potentially harmful products or substances, changes to the social and legal environment, issues related to altered interpretation of coverage and other new and emerging claim theories.
  • CNA may not be able to obtain sufficient reinsurance at a cost or on terms and conditions it deems acceptable, which could result in increased exposure to risk or a decrease in CNA’s underwriting commitments.

Management Discussion
  • Net loss attributable to Loews Corporation for 2020 was $931 million, or $3.32 per share, compared to net income attributable to Loews Corporation of $932 million, or $3.07 per share, in 2019.
  • The net loss for 2020 was driven by six main factors: (i) an investment loss of $1.2 billion ($957 million after tax) caused by the write down of the carrying value of our interest in Diamond Offshore as a result of its deconsolidation upon its bankruptcy filing on April 26, 2020; (ii) drilling rig impairment charges at Diamond Offshore during the first quarter of 2020 when it was a consolidated subsidiary; (iii) operating losses in 2020 as compared to operating income in 2019 at Loews Hotels; (iv) a reduction in CNA’s and the parent company’s net investment income; (v) net investment losses at CNA in 2020 as compared to net investment gains in 2019; and (vi) lower property and casualty underwriting income at CNA caused mainly by higher catastrophe losses.
  • The economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and measures to mitigate the spread of the virus have significantly affected Loews’s results in 2020. The full impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s financial results will depend on the duration of mandated and voluntary containment efforts, related economic policies, the success of vaccination efforts in mitigating the pandemic, and other societal responses to the pandemic.
