Element EXPLAINATION
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with same quarter last year The improvement in result for the three (3) month period ended 31st December 2013, versus the same period of 2012, was due to a combination of business growth and change in seasonality of claims which resulted in a higher underwriting result. This was partially offset by increased growth related operational expenses, such as staff costs, commissions and levies. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR222,848K, an increase of 63%, and the net underwriting result for the three month period ended 31st December 2013, versus the same period of 2012, increased by SR60,343K, an increase of 51%.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the period compared with same period last year The improvement in result for the twelve (12) months ended 31st December 2013, versus the same period of 2012, was due mainly to business growth driving an improved underwriting result and also an increase in investment income. The underwriting result was higher by SR83,127K versus the same period of previous year, representing a 19% increase Net investment income, for the twelve months ended 31st December 2013, was SR35,474K, compared to a net investment income of SR22,703K for the same period of 2012, representing an increase of 56% in net investment income. These improvements were partially offset by growth related operating expenses higher by SR84,493k, mainly commissions, levies and bad debt provision. Gross Written Premium (GWP) increased by SR983,179K, versus the same period of 2012, representing an increase of 45%.
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with the previous quarter The improved result in the fourth quarter of 2013, versus the third quarter of 2013, was mainly due to an increased underwriting result due to an improved claims experience versus the previous quarter. Combined with a reduced quarter on quarter bad debt provision expense of SR16,669K resulted in an improvement of surplus from insurance operations of SR16,883K versus the third quarter of 2013, representing an increase of 22%.
