Attributable net profit up 11.1% in the first quarter to €256 million

PARIS, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

CNP Assurances, the leading personal insurer in France with operations in the rest of Europe and in Latin America, has announced its quarterly indicators for the three months ended 31 March 2014. These indicators were approved for publication by the Board of Directors on 6 May 2014.

HIGHLIGHTS 

ATTRIBUTABLE NET PROFIT: €256M (UP 11.1%) 

  • Growth in business: 
    • IFRS premium income up 11.3% to €7.9 billion 
  • A RESILIENT REVENUE PERFORMANCE: 
    • Total revenue up 1.0% to €755 million 
  • A ROBUST BALANCE SHEET: 
    • Solvency I coverage ratio of 333% (115% excluding unrealised capital gains) 

1. First-quarter 2014 premium income 


On an IFRS basis, consolidated premium income for the first three months of 2014 totalled €7.9 billion, up 11.3% as reported and 13.3% at comparable scope of consolidation and constant exchange rates (like-for-like). Net new money* was positive across geographic regions, amounting to an inflow of €849 million for the period. 

Premium income increased by 20.2% in France. The improvement was led by growth in the savings business, including a 57.2% surge in sales of unit-linked products across distribution networks. In all, unit-linked business accounted for 10.4% of total savings/pensions premium income, compared with 8.3% in first-quarter 2013.

The personal risk/protection business (corresponding to death & disability, health and term creditor insurance) also went from strength to strength, expanding 4.5% in the first three months of 2014.

Life and pensions net new money in France was a positive €219 million, reflecting a €236 million net inflow to unit-linked contracts and a €17 million net outflow from traditional savings products).

In Latin America, premium income was up 1.7% like-for-like (down 16.7% as reported), buoyed by the personal risk/protection segment.

In Europe excluding France, premium income contracted by 13.5% off of high-prior year comparatives reflecting the sale of a group pensions contract. Excluding this contract from the first-quarter 2013 figure, premium income in Europe excluding France was up by 44.5%, mainly due to growth in the savings segment in an improving regional economic environment.

This performance drove a further 2.1% increase in average technical reserves in the first quarter of 2014, to €303 billion. 

2. First quarter 2014 revenue and profit indicators 


Net insurance revenue stood at €555 million for the period, a year-on-year gain of 1.0% as reported and of 10.5% like-for-like.

In France, the 3.6% rise in net insurance revenue was driven primarily by higher premium income and improved underwriting margins in the personal risk/protection segment.

In Latin America, business momentum slackened due to the unfavourable currency effect, with net insurance revenue up 23.5% like-for-like but down 0.4% as reported.

In the "Europe excluding France" region, net insurance revenue declined by 8.5%.

* French GAAP

Revenues from own funds portfolios rose by 0.9% as reported, and by 4.4% like-for-like, to €200 million.

Total revenue for the year came to €755 million, an increase of 1.0% as reported and 8.8% like-for-like. 

Administrative expenses totalled €220 million, down 2.1% as reported and up 2.4% like-for-like.

The cost/income ratio improved to 39.6% from 40.9%.

At €535 million, consolidated EBIT was up 2.3% as reported and 11.6% like-for-like.

Attributable net profit came to €256 million, a gain of 11.1% as reported and 17.5% like-for-like.

Consolidated equity (excluding minority interests) increased by €770 million or 5.3% to €15,396 million at 31 March 2014.

The Solvency I coverage ratio stood at 333%. Excluding unrealised capital gains, the ratio was stable versus the end-2013 figure at 115%.
