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 30th June 2015, versus the same period of 2014, was mainly due to strong business growth, in the current year first two quarters 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 Q2 at 79.8% versus 2014 Q2 at 82.3%), 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 SR13,054K for 2015 Q2, versus 2014 Q2 at SR1,512K due to the lower 2014 Q2 surplus from insurance operations. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR514,427K, an increase of 37%, and the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 30th June 2015, versus the same period of 2014, improved by SR157,908K, representing an increase of 90%. The improvement in net earned premium by SR652,816K represented an increase of 66%, versus the same period of 2014. The surplus from Insurance Operations increased by SR92,579K, to a surplus of SR130,538K from Insurance Operations for the three month period ended 30th June 2015, versus a surplus from Insurance Operations of SR37,959K for the same period of 2014, representing an increase of 244%.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the period compared with same period last year The improvement in results for the six (6) month period ended 30th June 2015, versus the same period of 2014, was mainly due to strong business growth, in the current year first two quarters 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 year to date Q2 at 82.8% versus 2014 year to date Q2 at 84.6%) , 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 SR16,974K for year to date 2015 Q2, versus year to date 2014 Q2 at SR1,512K due to the significantly higher 2015 year to date Q2 surplus from insurance operations. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR1,172,619K, an increase of 42%, and the net underwriting result for the six month period ended 30th June 2015, versus the same period of 2014, improved by SR255,238K, representing an increase of 88%. The improvement in net earned premium by SR1,285,540K represented an increase of 68%, versus the same period of 2014. The surplus from Insurance Operations increased by SR154,623K, a surplus of SR169,739K from Insurance Operations for the period ended 30th June 2015, versus a surplus from Insurance Operations of SR15,116K for the same period of 2014, an increase of 1,023%.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with the previous quarter The improvement in result in the second quarter of 2015, versus the first quarter of 2015, was mainly due to lower claims in the second quarter of 2015 (due to the seasonality of claims, as reflected by the net claims incurred to net earned premium ratio (2015 Q2 at 79.8% versus 2015 Q1 at 86.0%)) which resulted in an increase in net underwriting result of SR122,607K, a 58% increase. There was also a decrease in Selling and Marketing expenses driven by commissions and levies impacted by the seasonality of the Gross Written Premium (GWP), GWP higher in Q1. This was partially offset by an increase in General and Admin. expenses, required to support the growth. Gross Written Premiums (GWP) were lower by SR188,076K in the second quarter of 2015, a reduction of 9%, versus the first quarter of 2015, due to the seasonality of the GWP being higher in the first quarter, and Net earned premiums were higher by SR135,006K, an increase of 9%, due to the prior periods' significant growth.
