Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements June 30, 2022 (Unaudited)

 

1) Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Articles 8 and 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of the Company and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2021, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K (File Number 000-09341). In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to adopt policies and make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. In applying these policies and estimates, the Company makes judgments that frequently require assumptions about matters that are inherently uncertain. Accordingly, significant estimates used in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements may be subject to significant adjustments in future periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Material estimates that are particularly susceptible to significant changes in the near term are those used in determining the value of derivative assets and liabilities; those used in determining deferred acquisition costs and the value of business acquired; those used in determining the value of mortgage loans foreclosed to real estate held for investment; those used in determining the liability for future policy benefits and unearned revenue; those used in determining the estimated future costs for pre-need sales; those used in determining the value of mortgage servicing rights; those used in determining allowances for loan losses for mortgage loans held for investment; those used in determining loan loss reserve; and those used in determining deferred tax assets and liabilities. Although some variability is inherent in these estimates, management believes the amounts provided are fairly stated in all material respects.

 

COVID-19. During 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 had spread worldwide and was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. COVID-19, and its variants, pose a threat to the health and economic well-being of the Company’s employees, customers, and vendors. The Company continues to closely monitor developments relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and assess its impact on the Company’s business. The continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has had and continues to have a significant impact on the global economy and financial markets. Governments and businesses have taken numerous measures to try to contain the virus and its variants, which include the implementation of travel bans, self-imposed quarantine periods, social distancing, and various mask and vaccine mandates. These measures have disrupted and will continue to disrupt businesses globally. Governments and central banks have reacted with significant monetary and fiscal interventions designed to stabilize economic conditions. Most monetary and fiscal interventions have been significantly curtailed.

 

Like most businesses, COVID-19 has impacted the Company, including the temporary adoption of work from home arrangements and a restructuring of selling techniques for its products and services. The Company also experienced increased expenses for cleaning services of its offices. Throughout 2021 and 2022, the Company continued to adapt to the impact of COVID-19 and its related economic effects. The Company cannot, with any certainty predict the severity or duration with which COVID-19 will impact the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows. To the extent the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affects the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows, it may also have the effect of heightening many other risks to the Company. These uncertainties have the potential to negatively affect the risk of credit default for the issuers of the Company’s fixed maturity debt securities and individual borrowers with mortgage loans held by the Company.

 

The Company has implemented risk management, business continuity plans and has taken preventive measures and other precautions, including some remote work arrangements. Such measures and precautions have enabled the Company to continue to conduct business.

2) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Accounting Standards Issued But Not Yet Adopted

 

ASU No. 2016-13: “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326)” — Issued in September 2016, ASU 2016-13 amends guidance on reporting credit losses for assets held at amortized cost basis (such as mortgage loans and held to maturity debt securities) and available for sale debt securities. For assets held at amortized cost basis, Topic 326 eliminates the probable initial recognition threshold in current GAAP and, instead, requires an entity to reflect its current estimate of all expected credit losses. The allowance for credit losses is a valuation account that is deducted from the amortized cost basis of the financial assets to present the net amount expected to be collected. For available for sale debt securities, credit losses should be measured in a manner similar to current GAAP; however, Topic 326 will require that credit losses be presented as an allowance rather than as a write-down. In October 2019, the FASB proposed an update to ASU No. 2016-13 that would make the ASU effective for the Company on January 1, 2023. The Company is in the process of evaluating the potential impact of this standard.

 

ASU No. 2018-12: “Financial Services – Insurance (Topic 944): Targeted Improvements to the Accounting for Long-Duration Contracts” — Issued in August 2018, ASU 2018-12 is intended to improve the timeliness of recognizing changes in the liability for future policy benefits on traditional long-duration contracts by requiring that assumptions be updated after contract inception and by modifying the rate used to discount future cash flows. The ASU will improve the accounting for certain market-based options or guarantees associated with deposit or account balance contracts, simplify amortization of deferred acquisition costs while improving and expanding required disclosures. In November 2020, the FASB issued an update to ASU No. 2018-12 that made the ASU effective for the Company on January 1, 2025. The Company has made progress in the implementation of the new standard, including the involvement of actuaries, accountants, and systems specialists. However, the Company has not yet estimated the impact the new guidance will have on the consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company has reviewed other recent accounting pronouncements and has determined that they will not significantly impact the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

Fixed Maturity Securities

 

The following table summarizes unrealized losses on fixed maturity securities available for sale that were carried at estimated fair value at June 30, 2022 and at December 31, 2021. The unrealized losses were primarily related to interest rate fluctuations and uncertainties relating to COVID-19.

There were 508 securities with fair value of 95.2% of aggregate amortized cost at June 30, 2022. There were 55 securities with fair value of 97.3% of aggregate amortized cost at December 31, 2021. NaN additional credit losses have been recognized for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, since the increase in unrealized losses is primarily a result of the recent rise in interest rates.

 

On a quarterly basis, the Company evaluates its fixed maturity securities classified as available for sale. This evaluation includes a review of current ratings by the National Association of Insurance Commissions (“NAIC”). Securities with a rating of 1 or 2 are considered investment grade and are not reviewed for impairment, unless current market or recent company news could lead to a credit downgrade. Securities with ratings of 3 to 5 are evaluated for impairment. Securities with a rating of 6 are automatically determined to be impaired and are written down. The evaluation involves an analysis of the securities in relation to historical values, interest payment history, projected earnings and revenue growth rates as well as a review of the reason for a downgrade in the NAIC rating. Based on the analysis of a security that is rated 3 to 5, a determination is made whether the security will likely make interest and principal payments in accordance with the terms of the financial instrument. If it is unlikely that the security will meet contractual obligations, the loss is considered to be other than temporary, the security is written down to the new anticipated market value and an impairment loss is recognized.

 

The fair values of fixed maturity securities are based on quoted market prices, when available. For fixed maturity securities not actively traded, fair values are estimated using values obtained from independent pricing services, or in the case of private placements, are estimated by discounting expected future cash flows using a current market value applicable to the coupon rate, credit and maturity of the investments.

Mortgage Loans Held for Investment

 

Mortgage loans held for investment consist of first and second mortgages. The mortgage loans bear interest at rates ranging from 2.0% to 10.5%, maturity dates range from nine months to 30 years and are secured by real estate. Concentrations of credit risk arise when a number of mortgage loan debtors have similar economic characteristics that would cause their ability to meet contractual obligations to be similarly affected by changes in economic conditions. Although the Company has a diversified mortgage loan portfolio consisting of residential mortgages, commercial loans and residential construction loans and requires collateral on all real estate exposures, a substantial portion of its debtors’ ability to honor obligations is reliant on the economic stability of the geographic region in which the debtors do business. At June 30, 2022, the Company had 79%, 5%, 4%, 4%, 2% and 2% of its mortgage loans from borrowers located in the states of Utah, Florida, Texas, California, Nevada, and Arizona, respectively. At December 31, 2021, the Company had 70%, 7%, 5%, 4%, 4% and 2% of its mortgage loans from borrowers located in the states of Utah, Florida, California, Texas, Nevada and Arizona, respectively.

 

Mortgage loans held for investment are carried at their unpaid principal balances adjusted for net deferred fees, charge-offs, premiums, discounts and the related allowance for loan losses. Interest income is included in net investment income on the condensed consolidated statements of earnings and is recognized when earned. The Company defers related material loan origination fees, net of related direct loan origination costs, and amortizes the net fees over the term of the loans. Origination fees are included in net investment income on the condensed consolidated statements of earnings.

 

Mortgage loans are secured by the underlying property and require an appraisal at the time of underwriting and funding. Generally, the Company will fund a loan not to exceed 80% of the fair market value of the loan’s collateral. Amounts over 80% will require additional collateral or mortgage insurance by an approved third-party insurer.

 

The Company provides for losses on its mortgage loans held for investment through an allowance for loan losses (a contra-asset account). The allowance is comprised of two components. The first component is an allowance for collectively evaluated impairment that is based upon the Company’s historical experience in collecting similar receivables. The second component is based upon individual evaluation of loans that are determined to be impaired. As a practical expedient, upon determining impairment, the Company establishes an individual impairment allowance based upon an assessment of the fair value of the underlying collateral. In addition, when a mortgage loan is past due more than 90 days, the Company does not accrue any interest income. When a loan becomes delinquent, the Company proceeds to foreclose on the real estate and all expenses for foreclosure are expensed as incurred. Once foreclosed, an adjustment for the lower of cost or fair value is made, if necessary, and the amount is classified as real estate held for investment or held for sale.

3) Investments (Continued)

 

The allowance for losses on mortgage loans held for investment could change based on changes in the value of the underlying collateral, the performance status of the loans, or the Company’s actual collection experience. The actual losses could change, in the near term, from the established allowance, based upon the occurrence or non-occurrence of these events.

 

For purposes of determining the allowance for losses, the Company has segmented its mortgage loans held for investment by loan type. The Company’s loan types are commercial, residential, and residential construction. The inherent risks within the portfolio vary depending upon the loan type as follows:

 

Commercial - Underwritten in accordance with the Company’s policies to determine the borrower’s ability to repay the obligation as agreed. Commercial loans are made primarily based on the underlying collateral supporting the loan. Accordingly, the repayment of a commercial loan depends primarily on the collateral and its ability to generate income and secondarily on the borrower’s (or guarantors) ability to repay.

 

Residential — Secured by family dwelling units. These loans are secured by first and second mortgages on the unit. The borrower’s ability to repay is sensitive to the life events and general economic condition of the region. Where loan to value exceeds 80%, the loan is generally guaranteed by private mortgage insurance, FHA or VA.

 

Residential construction (including land acquisition and development) – Underwritten in accordance with the Company’s underwriting policies which include a financial analysis of the builders, borrowers (guarantors), construction cost estimates, and independent appraisal valuations. These loans will rely on the value associated with the project upon completion. These cost and valuation estimates may be inaccurate. Construction loans generally involve the disbursement of substantial funds over a short period of time with repayment substantially dependent upon the success of the completed project and the ability of the borrower to secure long-term financing. Additionally, land is underwritten according to the Company’s policies, which include independent appraisal valuations as well as the estimated value associated with the land upon completion of development into finished lots. These cost and valuation estimates may be inaccurate. These loans are considered to be of a higher risk than other mortgage loans due to their ultimate repayment being sensitive to general economic conditions, availability of long-term or construction financing, and interest rate sensitivity.

Non-Accrual Mortgage Loans Held for Investment

 

Once a loan is past due 90 days, it is the policy of the Company to end the accrual of interest income on the loan and write off any interest income that had been accrued. Payments received for loans on a non-accrual status are recognized on a cash basis. Interest income recognized from any payments received for loans on a non-accrual status was immaterial. Accrual of interest resumes if a loan is brought current. Interest not accrued on these loans totaled approximately $135,000 and $236,000 as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Loan Loss Reserve

 

When a repurchase demand corresponding to a mortgage loan previously held for sale and sold to a third-party investor is received from a third-party investor, the relevant data is reviewed and captured so that an estimated future loss can be calculated. The key factors that are used in the estimated loss calculation are as follows: (i) lien position, (ii) payment status, (iii) claim type, (iv) unpaid principal balance, (v) interest rate, and (vi) validity of the demand. Other data is captured and is useful for management purposes; the actual estimated loss is generally based on these key factors. The Company conducts its own review upon the receipt of a repurchase demand. In many instances, the Company is able to resolve the issues relating to the repurchase demand by the third-party investor without having to make any payments to the investor.

(1)Included in mortgage fee income

 

The Company maintains reserves for estimated losses on current production volumes. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, $598,922 in reserves were added at a rate of 2.9 basis points per loan, the equivalent of $290 per $1,000,000 in loans originated. This is a decrease over the three months ended June 30, 2021, when reserves of $1,269,232 were added at a rate of 4.5 basis points per loan originated, the equivalent of $450 per $1,000,000 in loans originated. On February 1, 2021, SecurityNational Mortgage executed a settlement agreement with Lehman Holdings in relation to two adversary proceedings wherein all mortgage loan related claims were resolved, thereby ending all liabilities asserted by Lehman Holdings and conclusively ending all proceedings between SecurityNational Mortgage and Lehman Holdings. The full amount of SecurityNational Mortgage’s settlement payment was accounted for in the Company’s loan loss reserve as of December 31, 2020 and was paid during the first quarter 2021.The unique nature of COVID-19 creates significant difficulty for forecasting potential future losses. The Company will continue to monitor data and economic conditions in order to maintain adequate loss reserves on current production. Thus, the Company believes that the final loan loss reserve as of June 30, 2022, represents its best estimate for adequate loss reserves on loans sold.

5) Stock Compensation Plans

 

The Company has three fixed option plans (the “2013 Plan”, the “2014 Director Plan” and the “2022 Plan”). Compensation expense for options issued of $220,175 and nil has been recognized for these plans for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $491,922 and $39,153 has been recognized for these plans for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. As of June 30, 2022, the total unrecognized compensation expense related to the options issued was $390,714.

 

The fair value of each option granted is estimated on the date of grant using the Black Scholes Option Pricing Model. The Company estimates the expected life of the options using the simplified method. Future volatility is estimated based upon the weighted historical volatility of the Company’s Class A common stock over a period equal to the expected life of the options. The risk-free interest rate for the expected life of the options is based upon the Federal Reserve Board’s daily interest rates in effect at the time of the grant.

7) Business Segment Information

 

Description of Products and Services by Segment

 

The Company has three reportable business segments: life insurance, cemetery and mortuary, and mortgage. The Company’s life insurance segment consists of life insurance premiums and operating expenses from the sale of insurance products sold by the Company’s independent agency force and net investment income derived from investing policyholder and segment surplus funds. The Company’s cemetery and mortuary segment consists of revenues and operating expenses from the sale of at-need cemetery and mortuary merchandise and services at its mortuaries and cemeteries, pre-need sales of cemetery spaces after collection of 10% or more of the purchase price and the net investment income from investing segment surplus funds. The Company’s mortgage segment consists of fee income and expenses from the originations of residential mortgage loans and interest earned and interest expenses from warehousing loans held for sale.

 

Measurement of Segment Profit or Loss and Segment Assets

 

The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in the Significant Accounting Principles of the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Intersegment revenues are recorded at cost plus an agreed upon intercompany profit, and are eliminated upon consolidation.

 

Factors Management Used to Identify the Enterprise’s Reportable Segments

 

The Company’s reportable segments are business units that are managed separately due to the different products provided and the need to report separately to the various regulatory jurisdictions. The Company regularly reviews the quantitative thresholds and other criteria to determine when other business segments may need to be reported.

8) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

GAAP defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. GAAP also specifies a fair value hierarchy based upon the observability of inputs used in valuation techniques. Observable inputs (highest level) reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs (lowest level) reflect internally developed market assumptions. Fair value measurements are classified under the following hierarchy:

 

Level 1: Financial assets and financial liabilities whose values are based on unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in an active market that the Company can access.

 

Level 2: Financial assets and financial liabilities whose values are based on the following:

 a)Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets;
 b) Quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in non-active markets; or
 c)Valuation models whose inputs are observable, directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

 

Level 3: Financial assets and financial liabilities whose values are based on prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement. These inputs may reflect the Company’s estimates of the assumptions that market participants would use in valuing the financial assets and financial liabilities.

 

The Company utilizes a combination of third-party valuation service providers, brokers, and internal valuation models to determine fair value.

 

The following methods and assumptions were used by the Company in estimating the fair value disclosures related to significant financial instruments.

 

The items shown under Level 1 and Level 2 are valued as follows:

 

Fixed Maturity Securities Available for Sale: The fair values of fixed maturity securities are based on quoted market prices, when available. For fixed maturity securities not actively traded, fair values are estimated using values obtained from independent pricing services, or in the case of private placements (considered Level 3 financial assets), are estimated by discounting expected future cash flows using a current market value applicable to the coupon rate, credit and maturity of the investments.

 

Equity Securities: The fair values for equity securities are based on quoted market prices.

 

Restricted Assets: A portion of these assets include mutual funds and equity securities and fixed maturity securities that have quoted market prices that are used to determine fair value. Also included are cash and cash equivalents and participations in mortgage loans. The carrying amounts reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets for these financial instruments approximate their fair values due to their short-term nature.

 

Cemetery Perpetual Care Trust Investments: A portion of these assets include equity securities and fixed maturity securities that have quoted market prices that are used to determine fair value. Also included are cash and cash equivalents. The carrying amounts reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets for these financial instruments approximate their fair values due to their short-term nature.

 

Call and Put Option Derivatives: The fair values for call and put options are based on quoted market prices.

 

Additionally, there were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

8) Fair Value of Financial Instruments (Continued)

 

The items shown under Level 3 are valued as follows:

 

Loans Held for Sale: The Company elected the fair value option for loans held for sale. The fair value is based on quoted market prices, when available. When a quoted market price is not readily available, the Company uses the market price from its last sale of similar assets. Fair value is often difficult to determine and may contain significant unobservable inputs.

 

Loan Commitments and Forward Sale Commitments: The Company’s mortgage segment enters into loan commitments with potential borrowers and forward sale commitments to sell loans to third-party investors. The Company also uses a hedging strategy for these transactions. A loan commitment binds the Company to lend funds to a qualified borrower at a specified interest rate and within a specified period of time, generally up to 30 days after issuance of the loan commitment. Loan commitments are defined to be derivatives under GAAP and are recognized at fair value on the consolidated balance sheets with changes in their fair values recorded in current earnings.

 

The Company estimates the fair value of a loan commitment based on the change in estimated fair value of the underlying mortgage loan, quoted MBS prices, estimates of the fair value of mortgage servicing rights, and an estimate of the probability that the mortgage loan will fund within the terms of the commitment. The change in fair value of the underlying mortgage loan is measured from the date the loan commitment is issued. Following issuance, the value of a mortgage loan commitment can be either positive or negative depending upon the change in value of the underlying mortgage loans. Fallout rates and other factors from the Company’s recent historical data are used to estimate the quantity and value of mortgage loans that will fund within the terms of the commitments.

 

Impaired Mortgage Loans Held for Investment: The Company believes that the fair value of these nonperforming loans will approximate the unpaid principal balance expected to be recovered based on the fair value of the underlying collateral. For residential and commercial properties, the collateral value is estimated by obtaining an independent appraisal. The appraisal typically considers area comparables and property condition as well as potential rental income that could be generated (particularly for commercial properties). For residential construction loans, the collateral is typically incomplete, so fair value is estimated as the replacement cost using data from a provider of building cost information to the real estate construction.

 

Impaired Real Estate Held for Investment: The Company believes that in an orderly market, fair value will approximate the replacement cost of a home and the rental income provides a cash flow stream for investment analysis. The Company believes the highest and best use of the properties are as income producing assets since it is the Company’s intent to hold the properties as rental properties, matching the income from the investment in rental properties with the funds required for future estimated policy claims.

 

It should be noted that for replacement cost, when determining the fair value of real estate held for investment, the Company uses a provider of building cost information to the real estate construction industry. For the investment analysis, the Company uses market data based upon its real estate operation experience and projected the present value of the net rental income over seven years. The Company also considers area comparable properties and property condition when determining fair value.

 

In addition to this analysis performed by the Company, the Company depreciates Real Estate Held for Investment. This depreciation reduces the book value of these properties and lessens the exposure to the Company from further deterioration in real estate values.

 

Mortgage Servicing Rights: The Company initially recognizes Mortgage Servicing Rights (“MSRs”) at their estimated fair values derived from the net cash flows associated with the servicing contracts, where the Company assumes the obligation to service the loan in the sale transaction.

The methods, assumptions and significant valuation techniques and inputs used to estimate the fair value of these financial instruments are summarized as follows:

 

Mortgage Loans Held for Investment: The estimated fair value of the Company’s mortgage loans held for investment is determined using various methods. The Company’s mortgage loans are grouped into three categories: Residential, Residential Construction and Commercial. When estimating the expected future cash flows, it is assumed that all loans will be held to maturity, and any loans that are non-performing are evaluated individually for impairment.

 

Residential – The estimated fair value is determined through a combination of discounted cash flows (estimating expected future cash flows of payments and discounting them using current interest rates from single family mortgages) and considering pricing of similar loans that were sold recently.

 

Residential Construction – These loans are primarily short in maturity. Accordingly, the estimated fair value is determined to be the carrying value.

 

Commercial – The estimated fair value is determined by estimating expected future cash flows of payments and discounting them using current interest rates for commercial mortgages.

 

Policy Loans: The carrying amounts reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet for these financial instruments approximate their fair values because they are fully collateralized by the cash surrender value of the underlying insurance policies.

 

Insurance Assignments, Net: These investments are primarily short in maturity, accordingly, the carrying amounts reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet for these financial instruments approximate their fair values.

8) Fair Value of Financial Instruments (Continued)

 

Bank and Other Loans Payable: The carrying amounts reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet for these financial instruments approximate their fair values due to their relatively short-term maturities and variable interest rates.

 

Policyholder Account Balances and Future Policy Benefits-Annuities: Future policy benefit reserves for interest-sensitive insurance products are computed under a retrospective deposit method and represent policy account balances before applicable surrender charges. Policy benefits and claims that are charged to expense include benefit claims incurred in the period in excess of related policy account balances. Interest crediting rates for interest-sensitive insurance products ranged from 1.5% to 6.5%. The fair values for these investment-type insurance contracts are estimated based on the present value of liability cash flows. The fair values for the Company’s insurance contracts other than investment-type contracts are not required to be disclosed. However, the fair values of liabilities under all insurance contracts are taken into consideration in the Company’s overall management of interest rate risk, such that the Company’s exposure to changing interest rates is minimized through the matching of investment maturities with amounts due under insurance contracts.

 

9) Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

The Company records an allowance and recognizes an expense for potential losses from other investments and receivables in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Receivables are the result of cemetery and mortuary operations, mortgage loan operations and life insurance operations. The allowance is based upon the Company’s historical experience for collectively evaluated impairment. Other allowances are based upon receivables individually evaluated for impairment. Collectability of the cemetery and mortuary receivables is significantly influenced by current economic conditions. The critical issues that impact recovery of mortgage loan operations are interest rate risk, loan underwriting, new regulations and the overall economy

 

10) Derivative Instruments

 

Mortgage Banking Derivatives

 

Loan Commitments

 

The Company is exposed to price risk due to the potential impact of changes in interest rates on the values of loan commitments from the time a loan commitment is made to an applicant to the time the loan that would result from the exercise of that loan commitment is funded. Managing price risk is complicated by the fact that the ultimate percentage of loan commitments that will be exercised (i.e., the number of loans that will be funded) fluctuates. The probability that a loan will not be funded or the loan application is denied or withdrawn within the terms of the commitment is driven by a number of factors, particularly the change, if any, in mortgage rates following the issuance of the loan commitment.

 

In general, the probability of funding increases if mortgage rates rise and decreases if mortgage rates fall. This is due primarily to the relative attractiveness of current mortgage rates compared to the applicant’s committed rate. The probability that a loan will not be funded within the terms of the mortgage loan commitment also is influenced by the source of the applications (retail, broker or correspondent channels), proximity to rate lock expiration, purpose for the loan (purchase or refinance), product type and the application approval status. The Company has developed fallout estimates using historical data that take into account all of the variables, as well as renegotiations of rate and point commitments that tend to occur when mortgage rates fall. These fallout estimates are used to estimate the number of loans that the Company expects to be funded within the terms of the loan commitments and are updated periodically to reflect the most current data.

10) Derivative Instruments (Continued)

 

The Company estimates the fair value of a loan commitment based on the change in estimated fair value of the underlying mortgage loan, quoted mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”) prices, estimates of the fair value of mortgage servicing rights, and an estimate of the probability that the mortgage loan will fund within the terms of the commitment net of estimated commission expense. The change in fair value of the underlying mortgage loan is measured from the date the loan commitment is issued and is shown net of related expenses. Following issuance, the value of a loan commitment can be either positive or negative depending upon the change in value of the underlying mortgage loans. Fallout rates and other factors from the Company’s recent historical data are used to estimate the quantity and value of mortgage loans that will fund within the terms of the commitments.

 

Forward Sale Commitments

 

The Company utilizes forward commitments to economically hedge the price risk associated with its outstanding mortgage loan commitments. A forward commitment protects the Company from losses on sales of the loans arising from exercise of the loan commitments. Management expects these types of commitments will experience changes in fair value opposite to changes in fair value of the loan commitments, thereby reducing earnings volatility related to the recognition in earnings of changes in the values of the commitments.

 

The net changes in fair value of loan commitments and forward sale commitments are shown in current earnings as a component of mortgage fee income on the consolidated statements of earnings. Mortgage banking derivatives are shown in other assets and other liabilities and accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Call and Put Options Derivatives

 

The Company uses a strategy of selling “out of the money” call options on its equity securities as a source of revenue. The options give the purchaser the right to buy from the Company specified equity securities at a set price up to a pre-determined date in the future. The Company uses the strategy of selling put options as a means of generating cash or purchasing equity securities at lower than current market prices. The Company receives an immediate payment of cash for the value of the option and establishes a liability for the fair value of the option. The liability for options is adjusted to fair value at each reporting date. In the event a call option is exercised, the Company sells the equity security at a favorable price enhanced by the value of the option that was sold. If the option expires unexercised, the Company recognizes a gain from the expired option. In the event a put option is exercised, the Company acquires an equity security at the strike price of the option reduced by the value received from the sale of the put option. The equity security is then treated as a normal equity security in the Company’s portfolio. The net changes in the fair value of call and put options are shown in current earnings as a component of realized gains (losses) on investments and other assets. Call and put options are shown in other liabilities and accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

11) Reinsurance, Commitments and Contingencies

 

Reinsurance

 

The Company follows the procedure of reinsuring risks in excess of a specified limit, which ranges from $25,000 to $100,000. The Company is liable for these amounts in the event such reinsurers are unable to pay their portion of the claims. The Company has also assumed insurance from other companies.

 

Mortgage Loan Loss Settlements

 

Future loan losses can be extremely difficult to estimate. However, the Company believes that the Company’s reserve methodology and its current practice of property preservation allow it to estimate its potential losses on loans sold. See Note 4 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information about the Company’s loan loss reserve.

 

Debt Covenants for Mortgage Warehouse Lines of Credit

 

The Company, through its subsidiary SecurityNational Mortgage, has a $100,000,000 line of credit with Wells Fargo Bank N.A. The agreement charges interest at the 1-Month SOFR rate plus 2.1% and matures on June 2, 2023. SecurityNational Mortgage is required to comply with covenants for adjusted tangible net worth, unrestricted cash balance, the ratio of indebtedness to adjusted tangible net worth, and the liquidity overhead coverage ratio, and a quarterly gross profit of at least $1.00.

 

The Company, through its subsidiary SecurityNational Mortgage, has a line of credit with Texas Capital Bank N.A. This agreement with the bank allows SecurityNational Mortgage to borrow up to $100,000,000 for the sole purpose of funding mortgage loans. The agreement charges interest at the 1-Month LIBOR rate plus 2% and matures on November 9, 2022. The Company is required to comply with covenants for adjusted tangible net worth, unrestricted cash balance, and minimum combined pre-tax income (excluding any changes in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights) of at least $1.00 on a rolling four-quarter basis.

 

The Company through its subsidiary SecurityNational Mortgage, has a line of credit with Comerica Bank. This agreement with the bank allows SecurityNational Mortgage to borrow up to $75,000,000 for the sole purpose of funding mortgage loans. The agreement charges interest at the 1-Month SOFR rate plus 2.50% and matures on May 26, 2023.

11) Reinsurance, Commitments and Contingencies (Continued)

 

The Company through its subsidiary SecurityNational Mortgage, has a line of credit with U.S Bank. This agreement with the bank allows SecurityNational Mortgage to borrow up to $100,000,000 for the sole purpose of funding mortgage loans. The agreement charges interest at 2.10% plus the greater of (i) 0%, and (ii) the one-month forward-looking term rate based on SOFR and matures on June 2, 2023.

 

The Company is required to comply with covenants for adjusted tangible net worth, unrestricted cash balance, and minimum combined pre-tax income (excluding any changes in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights) of at least $1.00 on a rolling twelve months.

 

The agreements for warehouse lines include cross default provisions in that a covenant violation under one agreement constitutes a covenant violation under the other agreement. As of June 30, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all debt covenants.

 

Other Contingencies and Commitments

 

The Company has entered into commitments to fund construction and land development loans and has also provided financing for land acquisition and development. As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s commitments were approximately $328,580,000 for these loans, of which $207,689,514 had been funded. The Company will advance funds once the work has been completed and an independent inspection is made. The maximum loan commitment ranges between 50% and 80% of appraised value. The Company receives fees and interest for these loans and the interest rate is generally fixed 5.25% to 8.00% per annum. Maturities range between six and eighteen months.

 

The Company belongs to a captive insurance group for certain casualty insurance, worker compensation and liability programs. Insurance reserves are maintained relative to these programs. The level of exposure from catastrophic events is limited by the purchase of stop-loss and aggregate liability reinsurance coverage. When estimating the insurance liabilities and related reserves, the captive insurance management considers a number of factors, which include historical claims experience, demographic factors, severity factors and valuations provided by independent third-party actuaries. If actual claims or adverse development of loss reserves occurs and exceed these estimates, additional reserves may be required. The estimation process contains uncertainty since captive insurance management must use judgment to estimate the ultimate cost that will be incurred to settle reported claims and unreported claims for incidents incurred but not reported as of the balance sheet date.

 

The Company is a defendant in various other legal actions arising from the normal conduct of business. Management believes that none of the actions, if adversely determined, will have a material effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations. Based on management’s assessment and legal counsel’s representations concerning the likelihood of unfavorable outcomes, no amounts have been accrued for the above claims in the consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company is not a party to any other material legal proceedings outside the ordinary course of business or to any other legal proceedings, which, if adversely determined, would have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

12) Mortgage Servicing Rights

 

The Company initially records these MSRs at fair value as discussed in Note 8.

 

After being initially recorded at fair value, MSRs backed by mortgage loans are accounted for using the amortization method. Amortization expense is included in other expenses on the consolidated statements of earnings. MSR amortization is determined by amortizing the MSR balance in proportion to, and over the period of the estimated future net servicing income of the underlying financial assets.

 

The Company periodically assesses MSRs for impairment. Impairment occurs when the current fair value of the MSR falls below the asset’s carrying value (carrying value is the amortized cost reduced by any related valuation allowance). If MSRs are impaired, the impairment is recognized in current-period earnings and the carrying value of the MSRs is adjusted through a valuation allowance.

 

Management periodically reviews the various loan strata to determine whether the value of the MSRs in a given stratum is impaired and likely to recover. When management deems recovery of the value to be unlikely in the foreseeable future, a write-down of the cost of the MSRs for that stratum to its estimated recoverable value is charged to the valuation allowance.

 

The following table presents the MSR activity.

12) Mortgage Servicing Rights (Continued)

 

The following table summarizes the Company’s estimate of future amortization of its existing MSRs carried at amortized cost. This projection was developed using the assumptions made by management in its June 30, 2022 valuation of MSRs. The assumptions underlying the following estimate will change as market conditions and portfolio composition and behavior change, causing both actual and projected amortization levels to change over time. Therefore, the following estimates will change in a manner and amount not presently determinable by management.

13) Income Taxes

 

The Company’s overall effective tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was 24.4% and 23.3%, respectively, which resulted in a provision for income taxes of $1,155,397 and $3,419,873, respectively. The Company’s overall effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was 25.8% and 24.6%, respectively, which resulted in a provision for income taxes of $2,370,195 and $7,646,213, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rates differ from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% partially due to its provision for state income taxes. The increase in the effective tax rate when compared to the prior year is partially due to a larger increase to the valuation allowance in the current period when compared to the prior period year.

 

Interim income taxes are based on an estimated annualized effective tax rate applied to the respective quarterly periods, adjusted for discrete tax items in the period in which they occur. Although the Company believes its tax estimates are reasonable, the Company can make no assurance that the final tax outcome of these matters will not be different from that which it has reflected in its historical income tax provisions and accruals.

 

14) Revenues from Contracts with Customers

 

The Company reports revenues from contracts with customers pursuant to ASC No. 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

 

Information about Performance Obligations and Contract Balances

 

The Company’s cemetery and mortuary segment sells a variety of goods and services to customers in both at-need and pre-need situations. Due to the timing of the fulfillment of the obligation, revenue is deferred until that obligation is fulfilled.

 

The Company’s three types of future obligations are as follows:

 

Pre-need Merchandise and Service Revenue: All pre-need merchandise and service revenue is deferred and the funds are placed in trust until the need arises, the merchandise is received or the service is performed. The trust is then relieved, and the revenue and commissions are recognized.

 

At-need Specialty Merchandise Revenue: At-need specialty merchandise revenue consists of customizable merchandise ordered from a manufacturer such as markers and bases. When specialty merchandise is ordered, it can take time to manufacture and deliver the product. Revenue is deferred until the at-need merchandise is received.

 

Deferred Pre-need Land Revenue: Deferred pre-need revenue and corresponding commissions are deferred until 10% of the funds are received from the customer through regular monthly payments. Deferred pre-need land revenue is not placed in trust.

 

Complete payment of the contract does not constitute fulfillment of the performance obligation. Goods or services are deferred until such time the service is performed or merchandise is received. Pre-need contracts are required to be paid in full prior to a customer using a good or service from a pre-need contract. Goods and services from pre-need contracts can be transferred when paid in full from one owner to another. In such cases, the Company will act as an agent in transferring the requested goods and services. A transfer of goods and services does not fulfill an obligation and revenue remains deferred.

(1)Included in Receivables, net on the condensed consolidated balance sheets

 

The amount of revenue recognized and included in the opening contract liability balance for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was $1,526,324 and $1,309,936, respectively, and for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was $2,590,428 and $2,444,937, respectively.

 

The difference between the opening and closing balances of the Company’s contract assets and contract liabilities primarily results from the timing difference between the Company’s performance and the customer’s payment.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Overview

 

The Company’s operations over the last several years generally reflect three strategies which the Company expects to continue: (i) increased attention to “niche” insurance products, such as the Company’s funeral plan policies and traditional whole life products; (ii) increased emphasis on the cemetery and mortuary business; and (iii) capitalizing on an improving housing market by originating mortgage loans. The Company has adjusted its strategies to respond to the changing economic circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Insurance Operations

 

The Company’s life insurance business includes funeral plans and interest-sensitive life insurance, as well as other traditional life, accident and health insurance products. The Company places specific marketing emphasis on funeral plans through pre-need planning.

 

A funeral plan is a small face value life insurance policy that generally has face coverage of up to $30,000. The Company believes that funeral plans represent a marketing niche that is less competitive because most insurance companies do not offer similar coverage. The purpose of the funeral plan policy is to pay the costs and expenses incurred at the time of a person’s death. On a per thousand-dollar cost of insurance basis, these policies can be more expensive to the policyholder than many types of non-burial insurance due to their low face amount, requiring the fixed cost of the policy administration to be distributed over a smaller policy size, and the simplified underwriting practices that result in higher mortality costs.

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company’s life insurance sales force began using virtual and tele sales processes to market products. During the third quarter 2021, the life insurance sales force returned to in person sales, however, it continues to use virtual and tele sales where needed. Currently, approximately 75% of insurance operations office staff work in the office with the flexibility for hybrid-remote or completely remote working arrangements as needed.

 

The following table shows the condensed financial results of the insurance operations for three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. See Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

  Three months ended June 30
(in thousands of dollars)
  Six months ended June 30

Net investment income  15,126   13,805   10%  29,707   27,743   7%
Gains on investments and other assets  (266)  1,210   (122)%  (159)  2,371   (107)%
Other  394   684   (42)%  866   1,177   (26)%
Total $41,166  $40,658   1% $82,668  $79,600   4%
Intersegment revenue $2,076  $1,750   19% $3,772  $3,653   3%
Earnings before income taxes $3,932  $4,694   (16)% $4,748  $7,389   (36)%

 

Intersegment revenues are primarily interest income from the warehouse line for loans held for sale provided to SecurityNational Mortgage Company (“SecurityNational Mortgage”). Profitability for the six months ended June 30, 2022 decreased due to (a) a $2,965,000 increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, (b) a $2,530,000 decrease in gains on investments and other assets primarily due to a decrease in the fair value of equity securities, (c) a $1,716,000 increase in future policy benefits, (d) a $1,184,000 increase in amortization of deferred policy acquisition costs primarily due to an increase in the average outstanding balance of deferred policy and pre-need acquisition costs, (e) a $823,000 increase in interest expense, and (f) a $311,000 decrease in other revenues, which were partially offset by (i) a $3,945,000 increase in insurance premiums and other considerations, (ii) a $1,963,000 increase in net investment income, (iii) a $704,000 decrease in death, surrenders and other policy benefits, (iv) a $158,000 decrease in intersegment interest expense and other expenses, and a (v) $119,000 increase in intersegment revenue.

Cemetery and Mortuary Operations

 

The Company sells mortuary services and products through its nine mortuaries in Utah and three mortuaries in New Mexico. The Company also sells cemetery products and services through its five cemeteries in Utah, one cemetery in San Diego County, California, and one cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. At-need product sales and services are recognized as revenue when the services are performed or when the products are delivered. Pre-need cemetery product sales are deferred until the merchandise is delivered and services performed. Recognition of revenue for cemetery land sales occurs when 10% of the purchase price is received.

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cemetery and mortuary’s pre-need sales force began using virtual selling processes to market its products and services including some in home sales as local regulations permitted. During the third quarter of 2021, the sales force returned mostly to in home sales, however, it continues to use virtual selling where needed. Currently, the cemetery and mortuary operations office staff works in the office with the flexibility for hybrid-remote or completely remote working arrangements as needed.

 

The following table shows the condensed financial results of the cemetery and mortuary operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. See Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Earnings before income taxes $1,486  $2,269   (35)% $3,506  $4,970   (29)%

 

Profitability in the six months ended June 30, 2022 decreased due to (a) a $2,001,000 decrease in gains on investments and other assets primarily attributable to a $579,000 decrease in gains on real estate sales and a $1,443,000 decrease in the fair value of equity securities classified as restricted assets and cemetery perpetual care trust investments, (b) a $1,955,000 increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, (c) a $1,226,000 decrease in cemetery pre-need sales, (d) a $455,000 increase in costs of goods sold, (e) a $114,000 increase in intersegment interest expense and other expenses, (f) a $35,000 increase in amortization of deferred policy acquisition costs, and (g) a $13,000 decrease in other revenues, which were partially offset by (i) a $2,940,000 increase in mortuary at-need sales, (ii) a $765,000 increase in net investment income, (iii) a $482,000 increase in cemetery at-need sales, (iv) a $112,000 increase in intersegment revenues, and (v) a $36,000 decrease in interest expense.

The Company’s mortgage subsidiaries receive fees from borrowers that are involved in mortgage loan originations and refinancings, and secondary fees earned from third party investors that purchase the mortgage loans originated by the mortgage subsidiaries. Mortgage loans originated by the mortgage subsidiaries are generally sold with mortgage servicing rights released to third-party investors or retained by SecurityNational Mortgage. SecurityNational Mortgage currently retains the mortgage servicing rights on approximately 42% of its loan origination volume. These mortgage loans are serviced by either SecurityNational Mortgage or an approved third-party sub-servicer. In December 2021, the Company ceased operations in EverLEND Mortgage and merged its operations into SecurityNational Mortgage.

 

Mortgage rates have followed the US Treasury yields up in response to the higher than expected inflation and the expectation that the Federal Reserve will continue to raise rates in the near term. As expected, the rapid increase in mortgage rates has resulted in a decrease in loan originations classified as ‘refinance’. Higher mortgage rates have also had a negative effect on loan originations classified as ‘purchase’, although not as significant as those in the refinance classification.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, SecurityNational Mortgage originated 6,419 loans ($2,049,959,000 total volume) and 10,149 loans ($2,748,316,000 total volume), respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, EverLEND Mortgage originated 191 loans ($61,914,000 total volume).

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, mortgage operations have integrated employee work from home accommodations into its standard operating procedures. A large percentage of fulfillment employees are in office however the flexibility remains to accommodate in office or work from home functionality.

 

The following table shows the condensed financial results of the mortgage operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. See Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Mortgage Loan Loss Settlements

 

Future mortgage loan losses can be extremely difficult to estimate. However, management believes that the Company’s reserve methodology and its current practice of property preservation allow it to reasonably estimate its potential losses on mortgage loans sold. The estimated liability for indemnification losses was included in other liabilities and accrued expenses and, as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the balances were $1,940,786 and $2,447,139, respectively.

Contributing to this decrease in total revenues was a $23,127,000 decrease in mortgage fee income and a $2,392,000 decrease in gains on investments and other assets which were partially offset by a $1,794,000 increase in net investment income, a $953,000 increase in insurance premiums and other considerations, a $932,000 increase in net mortuary and cemetery sales, and a $656,000 increase in other revenues.

This decrease in gains on investments and other assets was primarily due to a $2,661,000 decrease in gains on equity securities mostly attributable to decreases in the fair value of these equity securities and a $67,000 decrease in gains on fixed maturity securities, which were partially offset by a $336,000 increase in gains on other assets.

This decrease was primarily the result of a $800,000 decrease in future policy benefits and a $5,000 decrease in death benefits ($518,000 for COVID-19 related deaths), which were partially offset by a $483,000 increase in surrender and other policy benefits.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s life insurance subsidiaries and cemetery and mortuary subsidiaries realize cash flow from premiums, contract payments and sales on personal services rendered for cemetery and mortuary business, from interest and dividends on invested assets, and from the proceeds from the sale or maturity of investments. The mortgage subsidiaries realize cash flow from fees generated by originating and refinancing mortgage loans and fees from mortgage loans held for sale that are sold to investors into the secondary market. It should be noted that current conditions in the financial markets and economy caused by the COVID-19 pandemic may affect the realization of these expected cash flows. The Company considers these sources of cash flow to be adequate to fund future policyholder and cemetery and mortuary liabilities, which generally are long-term, and adequate to pay current policyholder claims, annuity payments, expenses related to the issuance of new policies, the maintenance of existing policies, debt service, and to meet current operating expenses.

 

57
 

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company’s operations provided cash of $97,639,000 and $124,476,000, respectively. The decrease in cash provided by operations from the six months ended June 30, 2021 to those ended June 30, 2022 was due primarily to decreased proceeds from the sale of mortgage loans held for sale.

 

The Company’s liability for future policy benefits is expected to be paid out over the long-term due to the Company’s market niche of selling funeral plans. Funeral plans are small face value life insurance policies that payout upon a person’s death to cover funeral burial costs. Policyholders generally keep these policies in force and do not surrender them prior to death. Because of the long-term nature of these liabilities, the Company is able to hold to maturity its bonds, real estate, and mortgage loans thus reducing the risk of liquidating these long-term investments as a result of any sudden changes in their fair values.

 

The Company attempts to match the duration of invested assets with its policyholder and cemetery and mortuary liabilities. The Company may sell investments other than those held to maturity in the portfolio to help in this timing matching. The Company purchases short-term investments on a temporary basis to meet the expectations of short-term requirements of the Company’s products. The Company’s investment philosophy is intended to provide a rate of return, which will persist during the expected duration of policyholder and cemetery and mortuary liabilities regardless of future interest rate movements.

 

The Company’s investment policy is also to invest predominantly in fixed maturity securities, real estate, mortgage loans, and warehousing of mortgage loans held for sale on a short-term basis before selling the loans to investors in accordance with the requirements and laws governing the life insurance subsidiaries. Bonds owned by the insurance subsidiaries amounted to $270,404,000 (at estimated fair value) and $259,005,000 (at estimated fair value) as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. This represented 32.6% and 31.5% of the total investments as of June 30, 2022, and December 31, 2021, respectively. Generally, all bonds owned by the life insurance subsidiaries are rated by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. Under this rating system, there are six categories used for rating bonds. At June 30, 2022, 3.0% (or $7,969,000) and at December 31, 2021, 3.9% (or $9,991,000) of the Company’s total bond investments were invested in bonds in rating categories three through six, which are considered non-investment grade.

 

The Company is subject to risk-based capital guidelines established by statutory regulators requiring minimum capital levels based on the perceived risk of assets, liabilities, disintermediation, and business risk. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the life insurance subsidiaries were in compliance with the regulatory criteria.

 

The Company’s total capitalization of stockholders’ equity, bank and other loans payable was $480,830,000 as of June 30, 2022, as compared to $551,054,000 as of December 31, 2021. Stockholders’ equity as a percent of total capitalization was 58.3% and 54.4% as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

 

Lapse rates measure the amount of insurance terminated during a particular period. The Company’s lapse rate for life insurance in 2021 was 4.8% as compared to a rate of 5.9% for 2020. The 2022 lapse rate to date has been approximately the same as 2021.

 

The combined statutory capital and surplus of the Company’s life insurance subsidiaries was $83,477,000 and $82,823,000 as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The life insurance subsidiaries cannot pay a dividend to their parent company without the approval of state insurance regulatory authorities.

 

COVID-19 Pandemic

 

During 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 had spread worldwide and was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. COVID-19, and its variants, pose a threat to the health and economic well-being of the Company’s employees, customers, and vendors. The Company continues to closely monitor developments relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and assessing its impact on the Company’s business. The continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has had and continues to have a significant impact on the global economy and financial markets. Governments and businesses have taken numerous measures to try to contain the virus and its variants, which include the implementation of travel bans, self-imposed quarantine periods, social distancing, and various mask and vaccine mandates. These measures have disrupted and will continue to disrupt businesses globally. Governments and central banks have reacted with significant monetary and fiscal interventions designed to stabilize the economic conditions. Most monetary and fiscal interventions have been significantly curtailed.

Like most businesses, COVID-19 has impacted the Company, including the temporary adoption of work from home arrangements and a restructuring of selling techniques for its products and services. The Company also experienced increased expenses for cleaning services of its offices. Throughout 2021 and 2022, the Company continued to adapt to the impact of COVID-19 and its related economic effects. The Company cannot, with any certainty predict the severity or duration with which COVID-19 will impact the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows. To the extent the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affects the Company’s business, financial condition, and results of operations, it may also have the effect of heightening many of the other Company risks. These uncertainties have the potential to negatively affect the risk of credit default for the issuers of the Company’s fixed maturity debt securities and individual borrowers with mortgage loans held by the Company.

 

The Company has implemented risk management, business continuity plans and has taken preventive measures and other precautions, including some remote work arrangements. Such measures and precautions have enabled the Company to continue to conduct business.
