|The reason of the increase (decrease) in the net profit during the current year compared to the last year is||The decrease in profits before Zakat and Income Tax for the year of SR 92,968K compared with the previous year was due to the following main reasons: |
• Decrease in underwriting results of SR 156,101K compared with last year, a decrease of 11.3%. Net earned premiums decreased by SR 116,767K in the current year compared with the last year, a decrease of 1.1%, while net claims incurred increase by SR 326,641K compared with last year, an increase of 3.8%, as a result of the rebound in deferred claims from the abnormal low levels witnessed during the COVID-19 lockdown period of the previous year.
• Operating expenses also increased by 3.2% compared with last year, reaching SR 714,240K.
These unfavorable movements were partially offset with the below movements:
• Decrease in policy acquisition costs expensed during the year reaching SR 343,427K compared with last year, a decrease of 45.6%. The Premium Deficiency Reserve (PDR), which was established in 2020, required the write-off of certain deferred acquisition costs. This was to offset the expected surge in claims post COVID-19 lockdown and to reserve for the impact of the enforcement of Article 11 of the Cooperative Health Insurance Law.
• Decrease in the provision for doubtful receivables of SR 6,312K compared to last year, a decrease of 21.9%, primarily driven by the record collection performance achieved in 2021.
• Increase in investment and other income of SR 57,250K compared to last year, an increase of 23.8%.
• Decrease in Policyholders’ share of insurance operations’ surplus to reach SR 58,347K in the current year versus SR 80,141K in last year, a decrease of 27.2%.
Gross Written Premiums (GWP) increased by SR 934,841K in the current year compared with last year, an increase of 9%.
