Management utilizes thecore income (loss) financial measure to monitor the Ҵý's operations.Please refer herein to the Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures section of this press release for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure.

"We continued to produce very strong results with a significant increase in core income driven by a 31% increase in net investment income, record levels of P&C underlying underwriting gain, lower levels of catastrophe loss, and improved results in Life & Group.Our annual Life and Group reserve assumption review resulted in a neutral change this year compared to a $143 million after-tax loss last year.Excluding the impacts of the Life & Group reserve review, our core income was still up by 56% this quarter.

P&C core income was up 35% in the quarter driven by higher investment income, and $220 million of underlying underwriting income.The all-in combined ratio was 94.3% with pretax catastrophe losses of $94 million or 4.1 points, and 0.2 points of favorable prior period development.The P&C underlying combined ratio was 90.4%.

We recorded 7% growth in gross written premium ex captives and 6% growth in net written premium. Our overall rate change remained stable at 5%, and importantly, rates improved in our casualty lines most impacted by social inflation, and rate turned positive in Specialty as decreases in management liability pricing moderated in the quarter. We are encouraged by these trends as we continue to cover our long run loss cost trends from written rate increases together with the exposure increases that act like rate, and we are confident in our ability to continue to leverage the favorable market conditions," saidDino E. Robusto, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Ҵý Financial Corporation.

AccountingStandardsUpdate

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-12, Financial Services-Insurance (Topic 944): Targeted Improvements to the Accounting for Long-Duration Contracts (LDTI).The updated accounting guidance requires changes to the measurement and disclosure of long-duration contracts.For the Ҵý, this includes the run-off long term care business in the Life & Group segment.The Ҵý adopted the new guidance effective January 1, 2023, using the modified retrospective method applied as of the transition date of January 1, 2021.All prior period amounts have been adjusted to reflect application of the new guidance.While the requirements of the newguidance represent a material changefrom legacy accounting, the new guidance does not impact capital and surplus under statutory accounting practices, cash flows or the underlying economics of the business.Additional information regarding the Ҵý's adoption of ASU 2018-12 and the impact to historical financial results is contained in the Ҵý's Q1 2023 Financial Supplement, furnished on Form 8-K, on May 1, 2023 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Theseratios are calculated using financial results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP).

  • Loss ratio is the percentage of net incurred claim and claim adjustment expenses to net earned premiums.
  • Underlying loss ratio represents the loss ratio excluding catastrophe losses and development-related items.
  • Expense ratio is the percentage of insurance underwriting and acquisition expenses, including the amortization of deferred acquisition costs, to net earned premiums.

  • Combined ratio is the sum of the loss, expense and dividend ratios.
  • Underlying combined ratio is the sum of the underlying loss, expense and dividend ratios.

Renewalpremiumchangerepresentstheestimatedchangeinaverage premiumonpolicies thatrenew,including rateand exposure changes.

Rate representstheaveragechangeinpriceonpolicies thatrenewexcluding exposurechange.Forcertainproducts within Small Business, where quantifiable, rate includes the influence of new business as well.

Exposure represents the measure of risk used in the pricing of the insurance product.The change in exposure represents the change in premium dollars on policies that renew as a result of the change in risk of the policy.

Retention represents the percentage of premium dollars renewed, excluding rate and exposure changes, in comparison to the expiring premium dollars from policies available to renew.

New business represents premiums from policies written with new customers and additional policies written with existing customers.

Gross written premiums ex. 3rdparty captives represents gross written premiums excluding business which is ceded to third party captives, including business related to large warranty programs.

Development-related items represents net prior year loss reserve and premium development, and includes the effects of interest accretion and change in allowance for uncollectible reinsurance and deductible amounts.

Underwriting gain (loss) represents net earned premiums less total insurance expenses, which includes insurance claims and policyholders' benefits, amortization of deferred acquisition costs and other insurance related expenses, pre-tax.

Underlying underwriting gain (loss) represents underwriting results excluding catastrophe losses and development-related items.

Statutory capital and surplus represents the excess of an insurance company's admitted assets over its liabilities, including loss reserves, as determined in accordance with statutory accounting practices.Statutory capital and surplus as of the current period is preliminary.

The Ҵý's investment portfolio is monitored by management through analysis of various factors including unrealized gains and losses on securities, portfolio duration and exposure to market and credit risk.

ReconciliationofGAAPMeasurestoNon-GAAPMeasures

This press release also contains financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP.Management utilizes these financial measures to monitor the Ҵý's insurance operations and investment portfolio.The Ҵý believes the presentation of these measures provides investors with a better understanding of the significant factors that comprise the Ҵý's operating performance.Reconciliations of these measures to the most comparable GAAP measures follow below.

ReconciliationofNetIncome(Loss) toCoreIncome (Loss)

ǰԳdz(loss)iscalculatedbyexcludingfromnetincome(loss)theafter-taxeffects ofnetinvestmentgainsorlosses.The calculationof core income (loss) excludes net investment gains or losses because net investment gains or losses are generally driven by economic factors that are not necessarily reflective of our primary operations. Management monitors core income (loss) for each business segment to assess segment performance. Presentation of consolidated core income (loss) is deemed to be a non-GAAP financial measure.
