Corebridge Financial Announces Third Quarter 2022 Results


Corebridge Financial, Inc. (NYSE: CRBG) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022. The results are the first quarterly earnings reported by the Company following the completion of its initial public offering during the third quarter of 2022 in which American International Group, Inc. ("AIG") sold approximately 12.4% of Corebridge's common stock.

Kevin Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corebridge, said "Our initial public offering marked an important milestone in our journey as Corebridge Financial. I want to thank all of our employees and partners who have worked together to build a strong company with a proud past and a bright future.

"This was a very good quarter for Corebridge, and our performance demonstrates the power of our franchise and the competitive strengths of our businesses. We delivered robust sales and deposit flows across all four businesses and we are gaining momentum from some of the most attractive pricing conditions in recent history. Rising interest rates and wider credit spreads have led to an important inflection point where we have moved from base net investment spread compression to base net investment spread expansion.

"We made significant progress on our growth, investment partnership and efficiency strategies, which will serve as the foundation to achieve our financial targets. As we look to the strength of our balance sheet, the consistency of our cash flows and the diversification of our businesses and earnings sources, we are confident in our ability to return significant capital to shareholders through a combination of dividends and share repurchases."

For the third quarter of 2022, net income was $2.4 billion compared to $1.4 billion in the prior year quarter. The change largely was driven by higher realized gains partially offset by lower net investment income. The company also completed its annual actuarial assumption review during the quarter which reduced pre-tax income by $6 million in the current quarter compared to $144 million in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted pre-tax operating income ("APTOI") was $423 million, a 51% decline compared to the prior year quarter largely related to the impact from capital markets and structural changes in the business profile, including implementation of the Company's new capital structure, as well as divestitures. Challenging global capital markets drove lower variable investment income as well as lower fee income in Individual Retirement and Group Retirement. These declines were partially offset by higher base spread income, a comparatively better impact from the annual actuarial assumption review and improved mortality experience when compared to the prior year quarter.

Premiums and deposits were $8.8 billion, up from $7.1 billion in the prior year quarter.2 These results reflect strong Individual Retirement deposits, solid Group Retirement deposits and steady Life Insurance premiums and deposits. Additionally, the Company benefited from increased transactional activity in its Group Retirement and Institutional Markets businesses. Excluding transactional businesses such as pension risk transfer, guaranteed investment contracts and Group Retirement plan acquisitions, premiums and deposits were up 11%.

Net investment income was $2.2 billion, a 28% decline compared to the prior year quarter largely driven by lower variable investment income. Net investment income on an APTOI basis was $2.0 billion for the third quarter of 2022, down $0.5 billion year-over-year primarily driven by lower variable investment income partially offset by higher base portfolio income. New money reinvestment rates were above the base yield for the second consecutive quarter given the attractive interest rate and credit spread environment. Base yield expanded approximately 5 basis points and 24 basis points over the prior year quarter and sequential quarter, respectively.

The Company issued $1.0 billion of hybrid junior subordinated notes in August 2022, and ended the quarter with holding company liquidity of $2.0 billion as well as a Life Fleet RBC Ratio in excess of its 400% target.

In the discussion below, "we," "us" and "our" refer to Corebridge and its consolidated subsidiaries, unless the context refers solely to Corebridge as a corporate entity.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

This release contains forward-looking statements. Words such as "expects," "believes," "anticipates," "intends," "seeks," "aims," "plans," "assumes," "estimates," "projects," "should," "would," "could," "may," "will," "shall" or variations of such words are generally part of forward-looking statements. Also, forward-looking statements include, without limitation, all matters that are not historical facts.

There can be no assurance that future developments affecting Corebridge and its consolidated subsidiaries will be those anticipated by management.

Any forward-looking statements included herein are not a guarantee of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and there are certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ, possibly materially, from expectations or estimates reflected in such forward-looking statements, including, among others, risks related to:

Forward-looking statements should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements, risks, uncertainties and other factors identified in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which the statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as otherwise may be required by law.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Throughout this release, we present our financial condition and results of operations in the way we believe will be most meaningful and representative of our business results. Some of the measurements we use are ??Non-GAAP financial measures'' under Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. We believe presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures allows for a deeper understanding of the profitability drivers of our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity. These measures should be considered supplementary to our results of operations and financial condition that are presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial measures we present may not be comparable to similarly-named measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted pre-tax operating income ("APTOI") is derived by excluding the items set forth below from income from operations before income tax. These items generally fall into one or more of the following broad categories: legacy matters having no relevance to our current businesses or operating performance; adjustments to enhance transparency to the underlying economics of transactions; and recording adjustments to APTOI that we believe to be common in our industry. We believe the adjustments to pre-tax income are useful for gaining an understanding of our overall results of operations.

APTOI excludes the impact of the following items:

FORTITUDE RELATED ADJUSTMENTS:

The modco reinsurance agreements with Fortitude Re transfer the economics of the invested assets supporting the reinsurance agreements to Fortitude Re. Accordingly, the net investment income on Fortitude Re funds withheld assets and the net realized gains (losses) on Fortitude Re funds withheld assets are excluded from APTOI. Similarly, changes in the Fortitude Re funds withheld embedded derivative are also excluded from APTOI.

As a result of entering into the reinsurance agreements with Fortitude Re we recorded a loss which was primarily attributed to the write-off of DAC, VOBA and deferred cost of reinsurance assets. The total loss and the ongoing results associated with the reinsurance agreement with Fortitude Re have been excluded from APTOI as these are not indicative of our ongoing business operations.

INVESTMENT RELATED ADJUSTMENTS:

APTOI excludes "Net realized gains (losses)," including changes in the allowance for credit losses on available-for-sale securities and loans, as well as gains or losses from sales of securities, except for gains (losses) related to the disposition of real estate investments. Net realized gains (losses), except for gains (losses) related to the disposition of real estate investments, are excluded as the timing of sales on invested assets or changes in allowances depend largely on market credit cycles and can vary considerably across periods. In addition, changes in interest rates may create opportunistic scenarios to buy or sell invested assets. Our derivative results, including those used to economically hedge insurance liabilities, also included in net realized gains (losses) are similarly excluded from APTOI except earned income (periodic settlements and changes in settlement accruals) on derivative instruments used for non-qualifying (economic) hedges or for asset replication. Earned income on such economic hedges is reclassified from net realized gains and losses to specific APTOI line items based on the economic risk being hedged (e.g., net investment income and interest credited to policyholder account balances).

Our investment-oriented contracts, such as universal life insurance, and fixed, fixed index and variable annuities, are also impacted by net realized gains (losses), and these secondary impacts are also excluded from APTOI. Specifically, the changes in benefit reserves and DAC, VOBA and deferred sales inducement ("DSI") assets related to net realized gains (losses) are excluded from APTOI.

VARIABLE, FIXED INDEX ANNUITIES AND INDEX UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE PRODUCTS ADJUSTMENTS:

Certain of our variable annuity contracts contain guaranteed minimum withdrawal benefits ("GMWBs") and are accounted for as embedded derivatives. Additionally, certain fixed index annuity contracts contain GMWB or indexed interest credits which are accounted for as embedded derivatives, and our index universal life insurance products also contain embedded derivatives. Changes in the fair value of these embedded derivatives, including rider fees attributed to the embedded derivatives, are recorded through "Net realized gains (losses)" and are excluded from APTOI.

Changes in the fair value of securities used to hedge guaranteed living benefits are excluded from APTOI.

OTHER ADJUSTMENTS:

Other adjustments represent all other adjustments that are excluded from APTOI and includes the net pre-tax operating income (losses) from noncontrolling interests related to consolidated investment entities. The excluded adjustments include, as applicable:

Adjusted after-tax operating income attributable to our common shareholders ("Adjusted After-tax Operating Income" or "AATOI") is derived by excluding the tax effected APTOI adjustments described above, as well as the following tax items from net income attributable to us:

Book value, excluding AOCI, adjusted for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re's funds withheld assets ("Adjusted Book Value") is used to eliminate the asymmetrical impact resulting from changes in fair value of our available-for-sale securities portfolio where there is largely no offsetting impact for certain related insurance liabilities that are not recorded at fair value. In addition, we adjust for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re's funds withheld assets since these fair value movements are economically transferred to Fortitude Re.

Adjusted Book Value per Common Share is computed as adjusted book value divided by total common shares outstanding.

Adjusted Return on Average Equity ("Adjusted ROAE") is derived by dividing AATOI by average Adjusted Book Value and is used by management to evaluate our recurring profitability and evaluate trends in our business. We believe this measure is useful to investors because it eliminates items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period, including changes in fair value of our available-for-sale securities portfolio and foreign currency translation adjustments. This measure also eliminates the asymmetrical impact resulting from changes in fair value of our available-for-sale securities portfolio for which there is largely no offsetting impact for certain related insurance liabilities. In addition, we adjust for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets since these fair value movements are economically transferred to Fortitude Re.

Adjusted revenues exclude Net realized gains (losses) except for gains (losses) related to the disposition of real estate investments, income from non-operating litigation settlements (included in Other income for GAAP purposes) and changes in fair value of securities used to hedge guaranteed living benefits (included in Net investment income for GAAP purposes).

Net investment income (APTOI basis) is the sum of base portfolio income and variable investment income.

Normalized distributions are defined as dividends paid by the Life Fleet subsidiaries as well as the international insurance subsidiaries, less non-recurring dividends, plus dividend capacity that would have been available to Corebridge absent strategies that resulted in utilization of tax attributes. We believe that presenting normalized distributions is useful in understanding a significant component of our liquidity as a stand-alone company.

Operating EPS is calculated by dividing AATOI by weighted average diluted shares.

Premiums and deposits is a non-GAAP financial measure that includes direct and assumed premiums received and earned on traditional life insurance policies, group benefit policies and life-contingent payout annuities, as well as deposits received on universal life insurance, investment-type annuity contracts, and GICs. We believe the measure of premiums and deposits is useful in understanding customer demand for our products, evolving product trends and our sales performance period over period.

(a) The results of the September 6, 2022 stock split have been applied retroactively for all periods prior to September 6, 2022. Operating earnings per share is the same for Common stock Class A and B.
(b) Potential dilutive common shares include our share-based employee compensation plans.
 
Note: On September 6, 2022, Corebridge Financial, Inc. effectuated a stock split and recapitalization of its 100,000 shares of common stock, of which 90,100 shares were Class A Common Stock and 9,900 shares were Class B Common Stock. Subsequent to September 6, 2022, there is only a single class of Common Stock therefore the two-class method for allocating net income will no longer be applicable. Corebridge Financial, Inc. split its 100,000 shares of Class A shares and Class B shares in a 6,450 to 1 stock split for a total of 645,000,000 shares of a single class of Common Stock.
 
The results of the stock split have been applied retroactively to the weighted average common shares outstanding for all periods prior to September 6, 2022. After closing the sale of a 9.9% equity stake in Corebridge to Blackstone on November 2, 2021, Blackstone owned 66,825,000 shares of Class B Common Stock. Prior to the sale of the Class B shares to Blackstone on November 2, 2021, Class B shares were owned exclusively by AIG. The Class B Common Stock is pari passu to the Class A Common Stock except for distributions associated with the sale of the affordable housing portfolio.
 
Prior to September 6, 2022, we used the two-class method for allocating net income to each class of our common stock. Prior to November 1, 2021, the EPS calculation allocates all net income ratably to Class A and Class B shares. After November 2, 2021, income was allocated ratably to the Class A and B shares, except for distributions associated with the sale of the affordable housing portfolio in 2021 for which the Class B shareholder does not participate.
