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 31 December 2015, versus the same period of 2014, was mainly due to strong business growth resulting in higher written and earned premiums driving an improved underwriting result, despite increased claims versus the prior year same period, due to a higher net claims incurred to net earned premium ratio, in the current year three month period. The net underwriting result gains were partially offset by increased growth related operational expenses, such as commissions, levies, staff/infrastructural related expenses, to support the growth, as well as by a higher Cooperative distribution expense. The Cooperative distribution expense was at SR22,825K for 2015 Q4, versus 2014 Q4 at SR13,518K, due to the higher 2015 fourth quarter surplus from insurance operations. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR278,610K, an increase of 34%, and the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 31 December 2015, versus the same period of 2014, improved by SR57,821K, representing an increase of 18%. The improvement in net earned premium of SR410,126K represented an increase of 29%, versus the same period of 2014. The surplus from Insurance Operations of SR228,251K, is an increase of SR93,074K, versus a surplus of SR135,177K for the same period of 2014, representing an increase of 69%.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the period compared with same period last year The improvement in results for the twelve (12) month period ended 31st December 2015, versus the same period of 2014, was mainly due to strong business growth resulting in a higher net earned premium and, combined with an improved, lower, net claims incurred to net earned premium ratio (2015 at 77.3% versus 2014 at 79.4%), 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, levies, bad debt provision expense and other operating expenses, including staff costs, as well as a higher Cooperative distribution expense. Additionally a reduction in investment and other income, of SR23,035K, in part due to the stock market major decline in the third quarter of the current year, versus the same period of the previous year, also partially offset the net underwriting result gains. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR1,587,567K, an increase of 28%, the Net earned premium increased by SR2,144,323K, an increase of 47%, and the net underwriting result for the twelve month period ended 31st December 2015, versus the same period of 2014, improved by SR582,282K, representing an increase of 62%. The surplus from Insurance Operations of SR731,176K, is an increase of SR403,907K, versus a surplus of SR327,269K for the same period of 2014, representing an increase of 123%. The Cooperative distribution expense was at SR73,118K for 2015, versus 2014 at SR32,727K, an increase of SR40,391K, due to the significantly higher 2015 surplus from Insurance Operations.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with the previous quarter The deterioration in result in the fourth quarter of 2015, versus the third quarter of 2015, by SR76,537K, a reduction of 27%, was mainly due to the adverse seasonality of claims in the fourth quarter (third quarter lower claims due to the impact of summer) which resulted in an adverse, higher, net claims incurred to net earned premium ratio, in the fourth quarter, of 79.3%, versus the third quarter, of 65.5%. As a result the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 31 December 2015, versus the three month period ended 30 September 2015, deteriorated by SR233,555K, a reduction of 38%. The reduction in net underwriting result was partially offset by bad debt provision expense (fourth quarter collections not impacted by summer), levies (lower written), Cooperative distribution expense (lower insurance operations surplus), and also Investment income all favourable in the fourth quarter versus the third quarter. In the fourth quarter there was a reduction in Gross Written Premium (GWP), of SR1,157,206K, a reduction of 51%, due mainly to the third quarter GWP including major account renewals. The net earned premium for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased, versus the third quarter of 2015, by SR46,710K, representing an increase of 3%.
