โ€œCitizens Announces Q2 2021 Financial Results

Year-over-year earnings up $0.12 per share

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Citizens, Inc. (NYSE: CIA) today announced Q2 2021 financial results showing $0.10 earnings per share, a $0.12 increase over the prior year. The significant improvement is driven by higher realized gains and was positively impacted by higher premium revenue in the quarter due to focused sales campaigns and lower sales in the prior year as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 environment.

Gerald W. Shields, Vice-Chairman of the Board and interim CEO, said, "Premium revenue trends improved with the second quarter 3% above last year and 10% above the previous quarter resulting from our improving distribution capability, better service, and innovative new products. These improvements are core to our strategy and will remain key drivers of our performance across our business."

Mr. Shields went on to say, "In our Home Services Segment, we had one of the best quarters since 2017. We are receiving strong customer reception to our new whole life product, Security Plan Plusโ„ข, which utilizes digital technology to enhance the speed and ease of the application process. We remain focused on product innovation, customer experience improvements and operational excellence and are pleased with our early customer receptivity and trendsโ€”all leading indicators underlying long-term growth."

Q2 Highlights (versus Q2 2020)

Net income of $0.10 per share of Class A common stock up $0.12 per share vs. the prior year
Revenue up 9% primarily on realized investment gains
Claims and surrenders up 6%--Life Insurance segment up 13%, Home Services segment down (19%)
General expenses up 3% on higher rent on the new headquarters
Net income of $0.10 per Class A earnings share improved by $0.12 versus the prior year, largely on higher realized investment gains resulting from new investment opportunities. Net income was positively impacted by increased revenue and lower federal taxes.

Revenue increased by 9%, primarily driven by a $3 million increase to realized gains driven mainly by fair value increases from new investment opportunities in limited partnerships, a 3% increase in premiums and lower sales in the prior year due to the impact of the COVID-19 environment.

The overall number of policies issued increased by 82% and 17% versus last year and last quarter, respectively, due to enhancements made to our business operations and sales practices to meet changing customer needs.

In the Life Insurance segment, premium revenues were flat versus the prior year and 10% over the previous quarter on strong first year premiums. During the second quarter, the significant increase in first year premiums offset the decline in renewal premiums. We continue implementing new targeted sales campaigns and promotions to stimulate sales, improve the time to issue, and develop new business opportunities. In addition, we are benefiting from successful agent recruitment efforts with an 18% increase in active international agents. All of these initiatives contributed to a 60% increase in the number of policies issued versus last year and a 9% improvement over the first quarter.

In the Home Services segment, new business premiums increased 30% and 20% compared to the prior year and the prior quarter, respectively. The improvement was primarily due to expanding an automatic issue product offered to existing policyholders, which boosted the number of policies issued and produced a slight increase in average face values. Renewal premiums increased primarily due to continued strong collection efforts by independent agents and less pressure on disposable income of insureds as a result of government stimulus and assistance programs.

During the second quarter, the Home Services segment introduced a new whole life product, Security Plan Plusโ„ข, with digital technology, improving the speed and ease of the application process and with higher allowable face values. Security Plan Plus was designed with today's consumers in mind, offering a highly competitive product with a sleek combination of design, functionality, and value.

Claims and surrenders benefits increased by 6% versus the prior year, on a 13% increase in the Life Insurance segment. This segment experienced a 49% increase in death claims, including COVID-19 claims and a 28% increase in surrenders. As previously disclosed, surrenders have been increasing over the last several years primarily due to a combination of an aging block of business, with little to no associated surrender charges, coupled with the challenging economic conditions, especially in Latin America. Death claim benefits in the Life Insurance segment have also increased due to higher volume and a higher average amount of reported claims. At the same time, claims and surrenders in the Home Services segment dropped by 16%, on a 19% decrease in death claim benefits during the second quarter compared to the prior year, which had a high number of COVID-19 death claims.

General expenses were up 3% from the prior year driven by advertising costs for our new domestic product and increased rent related to the new headquarters location.
