INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Anthem, Inc. (NYSE: ANTM) today announced that third quarter 2017 net income was $746.9 million, or $2.80 per share. These results included net positive adjustment items of $0.15 per share. Net income in the third quarter of 2016 was $617.8 million, or $2.30 per share, which included net negative adjustment items of $0.15 per share.

Excluding the items noted in each period, adjusted net income was $2.65 per share in the third quarter of 2017 compared to the adjusted net income of $2.45 per share in the prior year quarter (refer to the GAAP reconciliation table for the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or “GAAP”).

“Our solid third quarter 2017 results reflect continued operating momentum across our Commercial and Government businesses and our focus on improving affordability and choice for our customers. We are committed to advancing our ability to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare," said Joseph R. Swedish, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

“We continue to be pleased with the execution of our business segments during 2017 and have increased our 2017 outlook to reflect the strong performance during the third quarter,” said John Gallina, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

CONSOLIDATED HIGHLIGHTS

Membership: Medical enrollment totaled approximately 40.3 million members at September 30, 2017, an increase of 347 thousand members, or 0.9 percent, from 39.9 million at September 30, 2016. Commercial & Specialty Business enrollment increased by 278 thousand medical members as the Company experienced growth in both self-funded and fully-insured Local Group businesses, partially offset by a decline in membership in the National and Individual businesses. Enrollment also grew by 61 thousand in the Medicare business and 16 thousand in the Medicaid business.

Medical enrollment declined by 130 thousand, or 0.3 percent, sequentially during the third quarter of 2017. The decrease reflected enrollment declines in the National, Medicaid, and Individual businesses, partially offset by growth in the Large Group self-funded and Medicare businesses.

Operating Revenue: Operating revenue was $22.1 billion in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of $1.0 billion, or 4.6 percent, versus the $21.1 billion in the prior year quarter. The growth in revenue reflected premium rate increases to cover overall cost trends across our business. Additionally, the increase was driven by higher enrollment in the Medicare and Medicaid businesses as well as Local Group insured and self-funded businesses. These increases were partially offset by the impact of the one year waiver of the health insurance tax in 2017 and lower current year risk adjustment accruals during the quarter.

Benefit Expense Ratio: The benefit expense ratio was 87.0 percent in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 150 basis points from 85.5 percent in the prior year quarter. The increase, as expected, was largely driven by the impact of the one year waiver of the health insurance tax in 2017. The increase was partially offset by the impact of a retroactive revenue adjustment in the Medicaid business and improved medical cost performance in the Individual and Large Group businesses.

Medical claims reserves established at December 31, 2016 developed better than the Company’s expectation during the first nine months of 2017.

Medical Cost Trend: For the full year 2017, the Company now expects underlying Local Group medical cost trend to be in the range of 6.5% - 7.0%, with a bias toward the low end of the range.

Days in Claims Payable: Days in Claims Payable (“DCP”) was 40.5 days as of September 30, 2017, unchanged from 40.5 days as of June 30, 2017.

SG&A Expense Ratio: The SG&A expense ratio was 13.6 percent in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of 120 basis points from 14.8 percent in the third quarter of 2016. The decrease, as expected, was primarily driven by the impact of the one year waiver of the health insurance tax in 2017 and the impact of fixed cost leverage on operating revenue growth. These items were partially offset by the impact of increased spend to support growth initiatives during the current year quarter.

Operating Cash Flow: Operating cash flow was $2.4 billion, or 3.2 times net income in the third quarter of 2017, and approximately $5.5 billion, or 2.1 times net income for the first nine months of 2017. The Company now expects its full year 2017 operating cash flow to be greater than $4.0 billion.

Share Repurchase Program: During the third quarter of 2017, the Company repurchased 5.9 million shares of its common stock for $1.1 billion, or a weighted-average price of $189.85. During the first nine months of 2017, the Company repurchased 8.8 million shares of its common stock for $1.6 billion, or a weighted average price of $186.80. As of September 30, 2017, the Company had approximately $2.5 billion of Board-approved share repurchase authorization remaining.

Cash Dividend: During the third quarter of 2017, the Company paid a quarterly dividend of $0.70 per share, representing a distribution of cash totaling $181.4 million.

On October 24, 2017, the Audit Committee declared a fourth quarter 2017 dividend to shareholders of $0.70 per share. On an annualized basis, this equates to a dividend of $2.80 per share. The fourth quarter dividend is payable on December 21, 2017 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 5, 2017.

Investment Portfolio & Capital Position: During the third quarter of 2017, the Company recorded net realized gains on financial instruments totaling $114.7 million and other-than-temporary impairment losses totaling $5.6 million. During the third quarter of 2016, the Company recorded net realized gains of $88.8 million and other-than-temporary impairment losses totaling $11.0 million.

As of September 30, 2017, the Company’s net unrealized gain position in the investment portfolio was $860.8 million, consisting of net unrealized gains on equity and fixed maturity securities totaling $423.9 and $436.9 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2017 cash and investments at the parent company totaled approximately $2.0 billion.

Commercial & Specialty Business: Operating gain in the Commercial & Specialty Business segment totaled $534.6 million in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of $103.1 million, or 16.2 percent, from $637.7 million in the third quarter of 2016. The decrease was driven by increased spend to support growth initiatives during the current year quarter and the impact of the one year waiver of the health insurance tax in 2017. The decrease was partially offset by improved medical cost performance in the Individual and Large Group businesses.

Government Business: Operating gain in the Government Business segment was $457.5 million in the third quarter of 2017, a decrease of $21.4 million, or 4.5 percent, from $478.9 million in the third quarter of 2016. The decrease reflects increased spend to support growth initiatives during the current year quarter and the impact of the one year waiver of the health insurance tax in 2017. These decreases were partially offset by the timing impact of a retroactive revenue adjustment in the Medicaid business.

Other: The Company reported an operating loss of $10.1 million in the Other segment for the third quarter of 2017, compared with an operating loss of $38.5 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily driven by lower terminated Cigna acquisition related expenses.

Basis of Presentation

  1. Operating revenue and operating gain are the key measures used by management to evaluate performance in each of its reporting segments, allocate resources, set incentive compensation targets and to forecast future operating performance. Operating gain is calculated as total operating revenue less benefit expense and selling, general and administrative expense. It does not include net investment income, net realized gains/losses on financial instruments, other-than-temporary impairment losses recognized in income, interest expense, amortization of other intangible assets, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt or income taxes, as these items are managed in a corporate shared service environment and are not the responsibility of operating segment management (refer to the GAAP reconciliation tables).
  2. Operating margin is defined as operating gain divided by operating revenue.

Words such as “expect,” “feel,” “believe,” “will,” “may,” “should,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “project,” “forecast,” “plan” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward- looking statements. These statements include, but are not limited to: financial projections and estimates and their underlying assumptions; statements regarding plans, objectives and expectations with respect to future operations, products and services; and statements regarding future performance. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond our control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include: those discussed and identified in our public filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC; increased government participation in, or regulation or taxation of, health benefits and managed care operations, including, but not limited to, the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, or Health Care Reform, and the impact of any future modification, repeal or replacement of Health Care Reform; trends in health care costs and utilization rates; our ability to secure sufficient premium rates including regulatory approval for and implementation of such rates; our participation in federal and state health insurance exchanges under Health Care Reform, which have experienced and continue to experience challenges due to implementation of Health Care Reform, and which entail uncertainties associated with the mix and volume of business, particularly in our Individual and Small Group markets, that could negatively impact the adequacy of our premium rates and which may not be sufficiently offset by the risk apportionment provisions of Health Care Reform; the ultimate outcome of litigation between Cigna Corporation (“Cigna”) and us related to the merger agreement between the parties, including our claim for damages against Cigna, Cigna’s claim for payment of a termination fee and other damages against us, and the potential for such litigation to cause us to incur substantial costs, materially distract management and negatively impact our reputation and financial positions; our ability to contract with providers on cost-effective and competitive terms; competitor pricing below market trends of increasing costs; reduced enrollment, as well as a negative change in our health care product mix; risks and uncertainties regarding Medicare and Medicaid programs, including those related to non-compliance with the complex regulations imposed thereon and funding risks with respect to revenue received from participation therein; a downgrade in our financial strength ratings; increases in costs and other liabilities associated with increased litigation, government investigations, audits or reviews; medical malpractice or professional liability claims or other risks related to health care services provided by our subsidiaries; our ability to repurchase shares of our common stock and pay dividends on our common stock due to the adequacy of our cash flow and earnings and other considerations; non-compliance by any party with the Express Scripts, Inc. pharmacy benefit management services agreement, which could result in financial penalties; our inability to meet customer demands, and sanctions imposed by governmental entities, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; events that result in negative publicity for us or the health benefits industry; failure to effectively maintain and modernize our information systems; events that may negatively affect our licenses with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association; state guaranty fund assessments for insolvent insurers; possible impairment of the value of our intangible assets if future results do not adequately support goodwill and other intangible assets; intense competition to attract and retain employees; unauthorized disclosure of member or employee sensitive or confidential information, including the impact and outcome of investigations, inquiries, claims and litigation related to the cyber attack we reported in February 2015; changes in economic and market conditions, as well as regulations that may negatively affect our investment portfolios and liquidity; possible restrictions in the payment of dividends by our subsidiaries and increases in required minimum levels of capital and the potential negative effect from our substantial amount of outstanding indebtedness; general risks associated with mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances; various laws and provisions in our governing documents that may prevent or discourage takeovers and business combinations; future public health epidemics and catastrophes; and general economic downturns. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements that speak only as of the date hereof. We do not undertake to update or revise any forward-looking statements, except as required by applicable securities laws.
