Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • Adverse changes in economic conditions, especially those affecting the levels of real estate and mortgage activity, may reduce our revenues.
  • Our claims experience may require us to increase our provision for title losses or to record additional reserves, either of which would adversely affect our earnings.
  • Competition in the title insurance industry may affect our revenues.
  • Availability of credit may reduce our liquidity and negatively impact our ability to fund operations.
  • A downgrade of our underwriters by rating agencies may reduce our revenues.
  • Our insurance subsidiaries must comply with extensive government regulations. These regulations could adversely affect our ability to increase our revenues and operating results.
  • Rapid changes in our industry require secure, timely and cost-effective technological responses. Our earnings may be adversely affected if we are unable to effectively use technology to address regulatory changes and increase productivity.
  • We rely on dividends from our insurance underwriting subsidiaries.
  • Claims by large classes of claimants may impact our financial condition or results of operations.
  • Information technology systems present potential targets for cyber security attacks.
  • Unfavorable economic or other business conditions could cause us to record an impairment of all or a portion of our goodwill, other intangible assets and other long-lived assets.
  • Failures at financial institutions at which we deposit funds could adversely affect us.
  • Our investment portfolio is subject to interest rate and other risks and could experience losses.
  • Our business could be disrupted as a result of a threatened proxy contest and other actions of activist stockholders.
Management Discussion
  • Comparisons of our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020 with the three months ended March 31, 2019 are set forth below. Factors contributing to fluctuations in the results of operations are presented in the order of their monetary significance, and we have quantified, when necessary, significant changes. Segment results are included in the discussions and, when relevant, are discussed separately.
  • Our statements on home sales and loan activity are based on published industry data from sources including Fannie Mae, the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and the U.S. Census Bureau. We also use information from our direct operations.
  • Operating environment. Actual existing home sales in the first quarter 2020 improved approximately 7% from the first quarter 2019. On seasonally-adjusted basis, March 2020 existing home sales totaled 415,000, which improved approximately 1% from a year ago, but declined 9% from February 2020. March 2020 median and average home prices increased approximately 8% and 6%, respectively, compared to March 2019 prices. March 2020 housing starts increased 1% from a year ago, but declined 22% compared to February 2020. Newly issued building permits in March 2020 were up 5% from a year ago, but decreased 7% sequentially from February 2020. March 2020 declines from February 2020 are primarily attributed to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.
