Element EXPLAINATION
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with same quarter last year The improvement in results for the three month period ended 31st December 2014 versus the same period of 2013, was due mainly to very strong business growth, resulting in higher net written and significantly higher net earned premium. The net underwriting result gains were partially offset by increased claims and growth related operational expenses, such as commissions, levies and staff/infrastructure related expenses to support the growth. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR246,901K, an increase of 43%, and the net earned premiums increased by SR626,614K, an increase of 81%. As a result the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 31 December 2014, versus the same period of 2013, improved by SR137,554K, an increase of 77%.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the period compared with same period last year The improvement in results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2014, versus the same period of 2013, was due mainly to very strong business growth, including a major account win, resulting in a much higher net written and net earned premium, and combined with an improved, lower, net claims incurred ratio (2014 at 79.4% versus 2013 at 80.4%), resulted in a significantly higher net underwriting result. The net underwriting result improved by SR435,966K versus the same period of the previous year, representing an 85% increase. The Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR2,562,969K, versus the same period of 2013, representing an increase of 81%. There was an increase in operating expenses driven by the growth, including commissions and levies (which increased by a combined SR97,111K ) and other expense increases were due to staff and infrastructure related costs required to support the growth.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with the previous quarter The deterioration in result in the fourth quarter of 2014, versus the third quarter of 2014, 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 ratio, in the fourth quarter, of 77.4% (versus the third quarter ratio which was at 74.2%). As a result the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 31 December 2014, versus the third quarter, deteriorated by SR22,153K, a reduction of 7%. In the fourth quarter there was a reduction in Gross Written Premiums (GWP), of SR1,299,478K, a reduction of 61%, due mainly to the third quarter GWP including a major account win. The net earned premium for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased, versus the third quarter of 2014, by SR85,241K, representing an increase of 6%.
