HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Maiden Holdings, Ltd. (Nasdaq:MHLD) today reported third quarter 2012 net operating earnings(1) of $19.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share compared with $21.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share in the comparative quarter in 2011. Net income totaled $21.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share compared with net income of $16.0 million, or $0.22 per diluted common share in the third quarter of 2011.

Commenting on the Company's earnings, Art Raschbaum, Chief Executive Officer of Maiden Holdings, said: "The quarter reflects solid performance with robust growth in book value and capitalization, profitable underwriting results and continued expansion of our unique diversified underwriting portfolio. Since year end 2011, Maiden's total equity has grown by 34% to just over $1 billion. We believe that our strong capitalization positions Maiden to benefit from continued improvements in the operating environment."

Results for the three months ended September 30, 2012

Net operating earnings(1) for the third quarter of 2012 were $19.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share compared with $21.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share in the comparative quarter in 2011. Net income was $21.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share compared with net income of $16.0 million or $0.22 per diluted common share in the third quarter of 2011.

In the third quarter of 2012 net premiums written totaled $455.8 million, an increase of 6.4% compared to the third quarter of 2011. Net premiums written increased in all three business segments. The Diversified Reinsurance segment net premiums written were up 2.8% to $193.9 million versus the third quarter of 2011 primarily due to new business during the quarter and to a lesser extent, the growth of existing client business. In the AmTrust Quota Share Reinsurance segment, net premiums written increased by 7.4% to $186.3 million compared to the third quarter of 2011, with the most significant premium increases coming from worker's compensation, warranty and European hospital liability lines. Net premiums written from the ACAC Quota Share increased by 13.9% to $75.6 million compared to the same period in 2011 due to the successful targeting of new business.

Net premiums earned of $449.0 million increased 6.8%, or $28.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2011. Earned premiums increased across all business segments with Diversified Reinsurance up 1.1%, AmTrust Quota Share Reinsurance up 11.0% and ACAC Quota Share up 14.1%.

Net investment income of $21.6 million in the third quarter of 2012 increased 14.9% compared to the third quarter of 2011. Total investments increased $590.0 million or 29.2% to $2.6 billion versus December 31, 2011. The average yield on the fixed income portfolio (excluding cash) is 3.42% with an average duration of 3.32 years.

Net loss and loss adjustment expenses of $309.1 million were up $34.6 million compared to the third quarter of 2011. The loss ratio(6) increased by 3.9 percentage points to 68.5% versus the third quarter of 2011.

Commission and other acquisition expenses together with general and administrative expenses of $134.5 million decreased $4.8 million in the third quarter of 2012 from the year ago quarter, while the total expense ratio improved to 29.7% in the third quarter of 2012 compared with 32.8% in the same quarter last year.

The combined ratio(9) for the third quarter of 2012 totaled 98.2% compared with 97.4% in the third quarter of 2011.

The impact of the updated accounting guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board which limits the capitalization of costs incurred to acquire or renew insurance contracts to those that are incremental direct costs of successful contract acquisitions was to decrease third quarter 2012 earnings by approximately $0.5 million or $0.01 per diluted common share. The impact on the Company's combined ratio for the quarter was an increase of approximately 0.1%.

Total assets increased 16.3% to $3.9 billion at September 30, 2012 compared to $3.4 billion at year-end 2011. Total cash on hand at September 30, 2012, was $182.2 million, comprised of cash and cash equivalents of $66.9 million, down 64.4% from the end of 2011, and restricted cash and cash equivalents of $115.3 million, which is up 0.4% compared to the end of 2011. Shareholders' equity was $1.0 billion, an increase of 33.7% compared to December 31, 2011.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $56.8 million compared to net income of $11.0 million in the first three quarters of 2011. During the second quarter of 2011, Maiden's net income was impacted by a number of non-operating expenses, including charges related to the repurchase of junior subordinated debt with proceeds from the June 2011 Senior Notes offering. Second quarter 2011 results included $15.1 million of junior subordinated debt repurchase expenses and $20.3 million of accelerated amortization of junior subordinated debt discount and issuance costs.

Net operating earnings(1) were $58.6 million, or $0.80 per diluted common share compared to $52.4 million or $0.72 per diluted common share in the first nine months of 2011. Year-to-date annualized operating return on common equity(1) was 9.5% compared to 9.2% for the first three quarters of 2011.

Net premiums written for the AmTrust Quota Share Reinsurance segment was $607.9 million, up 17.7% compared to the first three quarters of 2011 (however, excluding the impact of the one-time unearned premium transfer of $45.9 million in the second quarter of 2011 related to the European hospitality liability business, the net premiums written in the AmTrust Quota Share Reinsurance segment would have increased 29.1% compared to the first three quarters of 2011). Net premiums written for the ACAC Quota Share rose 16.4%, to $224.5 million compared to the first nine months of 2011.

Net premiums earned in the first nine months of $1.3 billion increased 16.7% or $190.0 million compared to the first nine months of 2011. Earned premiums grew in all business segments with Diversified Reinsurance up 11.3%, AmTrust Quota Share Reinsurance up 25.0% and ACAC Quota Share up 14.4% in the first nine months of 2012.

Net investment income in the first nine months of 2012 was $60.1 million, up 4.1% compared to the same period in 2011. This reflects the $712.8 million increase in total investments at the end of the third quarter 2012 compared to the end of the third quarter of 2011, offset by a decrease in book yield (excluding cash) to 3.42% from 3.84% at the end of September 2011.

General and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2012 totaled $42.6 million compared with $37.6 million in the first three quarters of 2011. These results reflected a general and administrative expense ratio(8) of 3.1% in the first nine months of 2012 and 3.3% in the comparative period last year.

The combined ratio(9) for the first nine months of 2012 was 98.0%, which was equal to the combined ratio(9) for the first nine months of last year.

The impact of the updated accounting guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board which limits the capitalization of costs incurred to acquire or renew insurance contracts to those that are incremental direct costs of successful contract acquisitions was to decrease earnings for the first nine months of 2012 by approximately $2.5 million or $0.03 per diluted common share. The impact on the Company's combined ratio for the first nine months of 2012 was an increase of approximately 0.2%.
