ProAssurance Corp. Reports Operating Results (10-Q)

August 06, 2012 | About:

ProAssurance Corp. (NYSE:PRA) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2012-06-30.

Proassurance Corporation has a market cap of $2.75 billion; its shares were traded at around $90.13 with a P/E ratio of 9.8 and P/S ratio of 3.8. The dividend yield of Proassurance Corporation stocks is 1.1%. Proassurance Corporation had an annual average earning growth of 30% over the past 10 years.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Our net investment result (which includes both net investment income and earnings from unconsolidated subsidiaries) decreased by $1.6 million or 4.7% for the 2012 three-month period and $5.0 million or 7.2% for the six-month period. Net Investment Income decreased $1.8 million and $4.5 million, for the three- and six-month periods, respectively, primarily due to lower yields on our fixed income securities. Equity in Earnings of Unconsolidated Subsidiaries increased $0.2 million for the 2012 three-month period and decreased $0.5 million for the 2012 six-month period primarily reflecting the net effect of the amortization of a larger investment in tax credit partnerships and higher earnings from our interests in certain LPs.

The overall yield on our portfolio declined for the 2012 three- and six-month periods because we have not been able to reinvest proceeds from maturities, pay-downs and sales at rates comparable to expiring rates while maintaining our asset quality and the duration of our portfolio. Average yields for our available-for-sale fixed maturity securities during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 are as follows:

We recognized credit-related impairments in earnings of $0.4 million and $0.7 million during the 2012 three- and six-month periods, respectively, and $0.4 million and $1.5 million for the same respective periods of 2011, related to certain residential mortgage-backed securities because the expected future cash flows from the securities were less than our carrying value.
