Element EXPLAINATION
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with same quarter last year The improvement in results for the three (3) month period ended 31st March 2015, versus the same period of 2014, was mainly due to strong business growth, in the current quarter and the second half of 2014, resulting in a higher net earned premium, and combined with an improved, lower, net claims incurred to net earned premium ratio (2015 Q1 at 86.0% versus 2014 Q1 at 87.1%) , resulting in a significantly higher net underwriting result. The net underwriting result gains were partially offset by increased growth related operational expenses, such as commissions and levies, as well as by the Cooperative Distribution expense of SR3,920K for 2015 Q1, versus 2014 Q1 at nil due to a 2014 Q1 deficit from insurance operations. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR658,192K, an increase of 46%, and the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 31 March 2015, versus the same period of 2014, improved by SR97,330K, representing an increase of 85%. The improvement in net earned premium by SR632,724K represented an increase of 72%, versus the same period of 2014. The result from Insurance Operations increased by SR62,044K, a surplus of SR39,201K from Insurance Operations for the period ended 31st March 2015, versus a deficit from Insurance Operations of SR22,843K for the same period of 2014.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with the previous quarter The decline in result in the first quarter of 2015, versus the fourth quarter of 2014, was mainly due to higher claims in the first quarter of 2015 (due to the seasonality of claims, as reflected by the net claims incurred to net earned premium ratio (2015 Q1 at 86.0% versus 2014 Q4 at 77.4%)) which resulted in a decrease in net underwriting result of SR105,788K, a 33% decrease. There was also an increase in Selling and Marketing expenses driven by commissions and levies impacted by the seasonality of the Gross Written Premium (GWP) growth. This was partially offset by Cooperative Distribution reduced by SR9,598K due to the reduced surplus from Insurance Operations, SR39,201K for the current quarter versus SR135,177k for the previous quarter, a reduction of 71%. Gross Written Premiums (GWP) were higher by SR1,258,065K in the first quarter of 2015, versus the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 153%, and net earned premiums were higher by SR111,955K, an increase of 8%.
