New Report: Middle Class Americans Acknowledge Past Financial Mistakes

Primerica, Inc. (NYSE:PRI)
Intraday Stock Chart
Today : Tuesday 18 September 2012


In an analysis of two new sources of information about family finances, the Consumer Federation of America and Primerica found that two-thirds of middle class Americans acknowledge having made financial mistakes, often costly ones.

The new report, “The Financial Status and Decision-Making of the American Middle Class,” also concluded that the financial condition of most middle class families is challenging. For example, in 2010 the typical middle class family had financial assets of $27,300 – including retirement savings but not pensions – which was 28 percent less than the $37,800 held in 2007.

The comprehensive analysis includes a national survey of 2015 representative adult Americans by ORC International in July of this year and a statistical examination of the Federal Reserve Board’s 2010 Survey of Consumer Finances, by Professor Catherine Montalto of The Ohio State University.

In the ORC International survey, 843 out of 2015 respondents reported household incomes between $30,000 and $100,000 and were considered to be middle class. Key findings from an analysis of the survey data are:

Two-thirds of middle class Americans (67%) said that, in the past, they had made at least one “really bad financial decision,” and nearly half of those questioned (47%) acknowledged that they had made more than one bad decision. The typical (median) cost of these bad decisions was $5,000, but the average cost was $23,000.
Few of these Americans said their main source of information or advice about specific financial decisions would be from the Internet, books, magazines, or TV. And a number said they would not seek information or advice in making these decisions. For example, for “saving and investing,” only 15 percent said they would rely on the Internet, publications, or TV for the information, yet another 17 percent said they “wouldn’t seek any information or advice, and just make a decision.” However, for this kind of decision, 45 percent said they would use information and advice from a financial professional.
These middle class Americans are much more risk-averse than those with higher incomes. If given $1,000,000 to invest for retirement, only 21 percent of middle class Americans, compared to 48 percent of higher-income persons (incomes $100,000 and over), would invest mainly in “stocks, bonds, and/or mutual funds.” And 19 percent of the middle class group would “invest” most of their funds in a savings account while 25 percent would invest mainly in real estate.
Yet, large majorities of these Americans believe their ability to make financial decisions is “good” or “excellent” – for example, 81 percent for ability to budget income and 80 percent for ability to manage credit card debt though only 63 percent for ability to save for retirement and 67 percent for their ability to purchase a mortgage loan.
“Considering their past mistakes and the complexity of the financial services marketplace, we were surprised at how highly most middle class Americans rate their ability to make a variety of financial decisions and how infrequently they rely on information from the Internet and publications,” said CFA Executive Director Stephen Brobeck.

The second source of information was the Federal Reserve Board’s 2010 Survey of Consumer Finances, which was released several months ago. Professor Catherine Montalto of The Ohio State University used its database, and that of the Fed’s 2007 survey, to compute financial statistics for the 40 percent of households in the third and fourth income quintiles -- incomes between $35,600 and $94,600 in 2010. Analysis of these data revealed that:

This typical middle class family had financial assets of $27,300, including $3,900 in checking and/or savings accounts. These financial assets were 28 percent less than the $37,800 held in 2007.
Most of these financial assets represented money in contributory retirement accounts, but only about three-fifths of all families (61%) had such an account (though a number of middle class families did have pensions).
For middle class families, the typical debt payments to income ratio was 20 percent with only 9 percent having debt payments that were overdue by 60 days or more. But nearly half (49%) still carried credit card debt from month to month, and the typical (median) debt for these families was $2,700.
The decline in housing prices was the main reason that the net assets of the typical middle income family declined 35 percent, from $145,600 to $94,700.
“Families without a lot of resources are balancing difficult and expensive priorities such as saving enough for college and retirement or paying off a mortgage and consumer debt. When you consider these demands within the context of the last decade’s falling incomes, we are nearing a crisis in this country,” said John Addison, Primerica Co-CEO. “Primerica’s representatives specialize in working with families that earn between $30-$100,000, and trust me, this can be a lonely field to be in. The trend on Wall Street is to work with wealthier and wealthier clients, but this report lays out very clearly the urgent need for more financial services aimed at middle income earners.”

Other findings from the analysis of the Fed data include:

Only 21 percent of the middle class families had a cash value life insurance policy, 15 percent stocks outside a retirement account, 14 percent certificates of deposit, and 13 percent U.S. Savings Bonds.
Over half of these families (53%) had installment debt whose typical amount was $13,500. Almost all of this debt represented auto loans and student loans.
These families held consumer and mortgage debt that was, typically, $85,400 in 2007 and $84,400 in 2010.
Other findings from the analysis of the ORCI survey data include:

More older middle class persons (65 and older) than younger persons (18-34 years) rated their financial decision-making ability as good or excellent, for example, 56 percent vs. 27 percent for budgeting one’s income.
Two-fifths of middle class persons (40%) said they would not seek information or advice about managing credit card debt, and about one-quarter would not do so for purchasing auto insurance (25%) and life insurance (24%).
Few said they would use information and advice from a financial professional for managing credit card debt (18%) and purchasing auto insurance (13%).
The least well-educated middle class persons were the least likely to seek information or advice. For example, 23 percent of those with a high school degree or less, but only 10 percent of those with a college degree, would not seek information about saving and investing.
A very small percentage would invest the bulk of $10,000 (7%), $100,000 (6%), or $1,000,000 (6%) in gold or precious metals.
Fewer middle class persons (63%) than those with incomes of $100,000 or higher (76%) rated their decision-making about saving for retirement as good or excellent.
More middle class persons (67%) than upper income persons (61%) said they had made at least one bad financial decision but the latter group lost more money -- $61,000 vs. $23,000 on average, presumably because they had more to lose.
The Consumer Federation of America is a nonprofit association of some 270 consumer groups that was established in 1968 to advance the consumer interest through research, advocacy, and education. While its primary focus is public policy issues, CFA founded and manages the America Saves campaign in which more than 300,000 Americans have enrolled or pledged as Savers.

I was a freshman in university at the time the DD was obviously lacking. I'm a personal injury lawyer now. The gentleman I spoke with said the company has undergone serious changes. I wish Primerica and all it's stock holders the best. Looking forward to positive news. At the time in 2006 this company was not well received at least in my immediate circle.

Primerica Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Primerica, Inc. (NYSE:PRI)
Intraday Stock Chart
Today : Tuesday 7 August 2012


Primerica, Inc. (NYSE: PRI) announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Total revenues were $300.5 million in the second quarter of 2012 and net income was $46.2 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. Operating revenues increased by 8% to $296.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared with $273.1 million in the second quarter of 2011. Net operating income grew by 18% to $45.5 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012, compared with $38.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011. The year-over-year trends reflect strong performance in the Term Life segment and the impact of our share repurchases as well as higher prior year insurance and operating expenses. Net operating income return on adjusted stockholders’ equity (ROAE) was 14.8% (13.9% on a net income and stockholders’ equity basis) for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the highest since becoming a public company in 2010.

Rick Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “Our 18% increase in net operating income in the second quarter and share repurchases drove a 40% increase in net operating earnings per diluted share and increased net operating return on adjusted stockholders equity to 14.8% from 11.6% in the year ago period. Our simple products and disciplined approach to business enhancements and capital management will continue to provide opportunities for strong long-term results.”

John Addison, Chairman of Primerica Distribution and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “Sales force distribution development showed strength this quarter with the size of our life licensed sales force growing and our focus on licensing resulting in a 21% increase in new life insurance licenses. Our Investment and Savings Products sales also grew 5% in the second quarter as we continued to demonstrate the power of our large scale distribution model by producing over $100 million of fixed indexed annuity sales in the first full quarter the product was offered.”

Distribution Results

The size of our life-licensed insurance sales force grew to 90,868 at June 30, 2012 from 90,519 at June 30, 2011 and 89,651 at March 31, 2012. Sales force growth was driven by 9,786 new life licenses in the second quarter of 2012, a 21% increase from the second quarter of 2011 and a 28% increase from the first quarter of 2012. Recruiting of new representatives in the second quarter of 2012 declined 25% to 48,976 compared with the second quarter of 2011 and was down 16% from the first quarter of 2012 largely reflecting the strong focus on getting new representatives through the licensing process. Recruiting in the second quarter of 2011 also benefited from the post-convention recruiting surge in June and July of 2011.
Term life insurance policies issued increased slightly to 60,583 in the second quarter of 2012, compared with the year ago period. Sequentially, term life insurance policies issued increased 8% compared with the first quarter of 2012, largely reflecting typical seasonality. Term Life net premium revenue increased 28% to $138.3 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared with the second quarter a year ago and increased by 8% from the first quarter as we continue to build the Term Life book of business.
Investment and Savings Products sales grew 5% to $1.19 billion in the second quarter of 2012 from the year ago quarter primarily as a result of sales growth in our recently launched fixed indexed annuity and managed account products. Total sales levels were consistent with the first quarter of 2012. Client asset values at June 30, 2012 declined 2% to $35.29 billion relative to a year ago and declined 3% compared with March 31, 2012, primarily reflecting market conditions in the U.S. and Canada.

(1) See the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section and the segment Operating Results Reconcilations at the end of this release for additional information.

(2) Reflects revised accounting standards related to costs associated with acquiring or renewing insurance contracts.

Term Life Insurance. Operating revenues grew by 24% to $162.7 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared with the same period a year ago. Net premiums continue to build with the in force block, up 28% from the prior year period. Net investment income increased year-over-year consistent with the growth in assets allocated to support the Term Life business. Net investment income was not notably impacted by low prevailing market interest rates.

Operating income before income taxes increased by 44% over the prior year period to $51.7 million additionally reflecting higher deferrals of commissions consistent with incentive program changes as well as prior year new product launch and convention-related expenses, partially offset by growth in premium-related expenses. Interest expense increased in the quarter due to the redundant reserve financing executed in March 2012. Persistency and mortality experience were both consistent with the prior year period.

Sequentially, operating income before income taxes increased by 17% reflecting continued premium growth, seasonally stronger persistency and lower incurred claims in the second quarter of 2012, compared with the first quarter of 2012. The stronger seasonal second quarter persistency resulted in lower DAC amortization partially offset by higher reserve increases in the second quarter of 2012, compared with the prior quarter. Results were also impacted by higher interest expense associated with the new redundant reserve financing and higher life insurance licensing-related expenses.

Investment and Savings Products. Operating revenues declined 2% to $103.0 million and operating income before income taxes declined 3% to $29.4 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared with the second quarter of 2011, reflecting a slight decline in average client asset values consistent with market performance. We also experienced a modest shift in sales mix towards managed accounts, which provide ongoing asset-based revenues rather than sales-based revenues.

Sequentially, operating income before income taxes increased 2% from the first quarter of 2012 reflecting higher sales of sales-based revenue generating products and slightly higher average client asset values.

Corporate and Other Distributed Products. Operating revenues decreased by 17%, or $6.3 million, to $30.5 million in the second quarter of 2012 from the second quarter of 2011 largely reflecting a lower invested asset base following our stock repurchases. As is the case with the Term Life segment, the low interest rate environment did not meaningfully impact Corporate and Other Distributed Products segment results. Year-over-year operating losses before income taxes for this segment increased by $3.9 million to $10.4 million as lower investment income was partially offset by lower claims on the short-term disability products underwritten by our New York insurance subsidiary.

Taxes

Our effective income tax rate for the second quarter of 2012 was 35.8%, compared with 35.7% for the same quarter a year ago. Our effective income tax rate increased from 34.2% in the first quarter of 2012 due to a lower effective Canadian tax rate in the first quarter of 2012.

Capital and Liquidity

In April 2012, we repurchased 5.7 million shares of common stock from equity funds managed by Warburg Pincus for a purchase price of $150 million. As of June 30, 2012, our investments and cash totaled $2.02 billion, compared with $2.17 billion as of March 31, 2012. Our invested asset portfolio had a net unrealized gain of $166.7 million (net of unrealized losses of $6.2 million) at June 30, 2012, down from a net unrealized gain of $170.6 million (net of unrealized losses of $5.9 million) at March 31, 2012. Net realized gains for the quarter were $4.3 million, which included $0.1 million of other-than-temporary impairments.

Primerica Life Insurance Company’s statutory risk-based capital (RBC) ratio is estimated to be in excess of 570% as of June 30, 2012, and well positioned to support existing operations and fund future growth.

Our debt-to-capital ratio remained low at 19.0% as of June 30, 2012. In July 2012, we completed our first public debt offering of $375 million in aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2022. The notes bear an annual interest rate of 4.750%. The majority of the offering proceeds were used to repay Primerica’s $300 million note payable to a subsidiary of Citigroup Inc. and the remaining proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes including share repurchases. If this offering had been completed as of June 30, 2012 our debt-to capital ratio would have been 22.7%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We also present operating revenues, operating income before income taxes, net operating income and adjusted stockholders’ equity. Operating revenues, operating income before income taxes and net operating income exclude the impact of realized investment gains and losses for all periods presented. Operating income before income taxes and net operating income exclude the expense associated with our IPO-related equity awards for all periods presented. Adjusted stockholders' equity excludes the impact of net unrealized gains and losses on invested assets for all periods presented. Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the definitions of similar measures used by other companies. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating our financial performance. Furthermore, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures may provide users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results of prior periods as they are expected to be reflective of our core ongoing business. These measures have limitations, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Reconciliations of non-GAAP to GAAP financial measures are attached to this release.

Primerica Announces “Refounding” IPO Process is Complete


Alert
Primerica Common Stock (NYSE:PRI)
Intraday Stock Chart
Today : Monday 19 December 2011


Primerica, Inc. (NYSE:PRI) today announced that Citigroup has sold approximately 8 million shares of Primerica’s common stock, representing all of the remaining shares beneficially owned by Citigroup following Primerica’s April 2010 initial public offering. The process began when Primerica was spun off in a 2010 IPO, after which Citigroup beneficially owned approximately 40% of Primerica common stock. In April 2011, Citigroup publicly sold 12 million shares of Primerica common stock, reducing its ownership stake to 23.1%. Primerica repurchased $200 million in shares in November 2011, reducing Citigroup’s ownership to 12.5%. Today’s sale completes this process as Citi has sold all of the shares remaining in its original equity stake in Primerica.

John Addison, Chairman of Primerica Distribution and Co-Chief Executive Officer, said, “This announcement marks the culmination of our “Refounding”. It is an exciting and historic day for our company and we wish to thank our 2,000 employees in North America, as well as our more than 90,000 independent representatives, without whom this day would not be possible. We are a Main Street company with a singular mission to grow our business and continue to deliver for Main Street families in North America by helping them achieve greater financial independence.”

D. Richard Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-Chief Executive Officer, said, “As a team, we have worked tirelessly through the IPO process for several years to emerge as our own independent public company and are gratified to have accomplished this goal, especially during these challenging economic times. We wish to thank Citigroup for their support and for completing the planned sale of its equity stake in Primerica in only 20 months.”

With coffers full, Primerica eyes first post-Citi buybacks
REUTERS — 08/05/11
By Rachel Chitra

BANGALORE (Reuters) - A little over a year after spinning
off from Citigroup (Symbol : C/WS/) , Primerica (Symbol :
PRI) is considering a first share buy-back program, as one
of the biggest U.S. term life insurers wants to put its
excess capital to use, executives said.

Primerica (Symbol : PRI), which has one of the best capital
ratios among U.S. life insurers, had a risk-based capital
(RBC) ratio above 600 percent at end-June, and plans to use
Triple X reserve financing to put some of that excess to
work.

High-quality life insurers generally have around twice the
minimum RBC level of about 200 percent set by state
regulators.

"For the excess capital, we're looking at a Triple X
transaction in 2011, if it makes sense. We don't have an
acquisition plan, so we'd be doing share buy-backs," co-CEO
Rick Williams said in a telephone interview.

"If we go ahead with a Triple X, we'd have $300-$350
million we can use for buy-backs."

Insurers can use Triple X reserve financing as a way to
meet regulatory capital requirements by methods like
holding letters of credit or by securitization. Since the
financial crisis dried up capital market alternatives,
insurers now prefer to hold letters of credit than go for
securitization.

With those letters, insurers can divert capital that is
idling in reserve, to fund other activities such as buy-
backs.

Primerica (Symbol : PRI) on Tuesday posted a quarterly
profit that beat Wall Street expectations on higher sales
of its term life insurance policies and investment and
savings products.

Primerica Reports Fourth Quarter 2010 Results


Primerica Common Stock (NYSE:PRI)
Intraday Stock Chart
Today : Tuesday 8 February 2011
Primerica, Inc. (NYSE: PRI) announced today financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010. Total revenues were $279.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2010. Net income was $52.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, or $0.69 per diluted share.

Operating revenues were $264.5 million, compared to $250.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net operating income was $45.2 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with $42.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Results reflect stable core performance in Term Life as well as Investment and Savings Products growth partially offset by lower investment income. Operating results during the quarter excluded $0.10 per diluted share largely related to certain reinsurance recoveries discussed in detail below.

Net income was $257.8 million for 2010, compared to $494.6 million for 2009. Net income for all of 2009 as well as the first quarter of 2010 did not reflect the impact of the Citi reinsurance and reorganization transactions. Adjusted to reflect these transactions as well as other operating adjustments described below, net operating income was $161.5 million for 2010, compared with $158.4 million for 2009.

D. Richard Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “Our fourth quarter was marked by solid net operating income and earnings per share, reflecting continued growth in both term life net premium and investment and savings products sales. Our strong capitalization, focus on growth strategies and unique sales distribution position us well to enhance shareholder value.”

John Addison, Chairman of Primerica Distribution and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish since becoming a public company and we are working on new products and initiatives that we believe will drive long-term growth for Primerica.”

Distribution Results

Recruiting increased by 4% in fourth quarter 2010 compared to the same period a year ago. Relative to the third quarter, the fourth quarter of 2010 experienced a lower percentage of new recruits obtaining a life license and higher non-renewals largely reflecting a higher number of states with renewal cycles in the fourth quarter. As a result, the size of our life-licensed insurance sales force decreased on both a sequential quarter and year-over-year basis to 94,850 at December 31, 2010. During the quarter we enhanced our new “Fast Start Bonus” to provide additional incentives for our newest recruits to engage in licensing activities as well as recruiting and field training observations.
Term life net premium grew by 10% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the third quarter of 2010 as we added another quarter of new term life business following the Citi reinsurance transactions. Life insurance policies issued decreased by 7% in fourth quarter 2010 from a year ago in line with industry term life trends. Sequentially, life insurance policies issued increased 4% in fourth quarter 2010 largely reflecting typical lower sales in the summer months. Total face amount in force increased by $6.60 billion to $656.79 billion at December 31, 2010 over December 31, 2009 primarily due to the effect of the stronger Canadian dollar and improved persistency.
Investment and savings products sales continued to grow, up 9% in fourth quarter 2010 from a year ago primarily driven by a 23% increase in annuity sales. Growth in annuity sales continued to outpace the industry in fourth quarter 2010, reflecting our clients’ desire to mitigate financial risk with guaranteed lifetime income. Sequentially, investment and savings products sales increased 10% in the fourth quarter of 2010. Client asset values were driven higher by improved market conditions, up 11% to $34.87 billion at December 31, 2010 from a year ago.
Operating Adjustments

Our operating results exclude realized investment gains and losses and the expense associated with our IPO-related equity awards. For the fourth quarter of 2010, our Term Life segment operating results also excluded $13.1 million of pre-tax income related to ceded premium recoveries which previously had not been recognized due to the uncertain nature of their recovery. Given the magnitude, we excluded these recoveries from our operating results because we believe they are not indicative of our ongoing operations.

Unusual Accounting Items

During the quarter ended December 31, 2010, we accrued certain items that previously had been accounted for on a cash basis. These items contributed net income of approximately $0.01 per diluted share and were insignificant to prior periods. The corrections reflect one-time adjustments that impact various line items and segments as follows:

Term Life Insurance: increase in other insurance expenses of $4.0 million primarily related to premium taxes;
Investment and Savings Products: increase in commissions and fees revenues of $11.6 million with a corresponding increase in sales commission expense of $6.8 million both primarily related to 12b-1 commissions; and
Corporate and Other Distributed Products: increase in commissions and fees revenues of $0.4 million.
The impact of these corrections is reflected in both our actual and operating segment results below. These corrections will not have an ongoing impact on earnings.

Segment Results

Primerica operates in two primary business segments: Term Life Insurance and Investment and Savings Products, and has a third segment, Corporate and Other Distributed Products. Results for the segments were as follows:

Actual Operating (1)
Q4 2010 Q4 2009 % Change
Q4 2010 Q4 2009 % Change
Revenues: ($ in thousands) ($ in thousands)
Term Life Insurance $ 137,068 $ 437,176 -69 % $ 123,927 $ 125,130 -1 %
Investment and Savings Products 103,021 82,954 24 % 103,021 82,954 24 %
Corporate and Other Distributed Products 39,298 58,472 -33 % 37,598 42,020 -11 %
Total revenues $ 279,387 $ 578,602 -52 % $ 264,546 $ 250,104 6 %

Income (loss) before income taxes:
Term Life Insurance $ 52,000 $ 156,392 -67 % $ 38,859 $ 43,937 -12 %

Total income before income taxes $ 80,522 $ 198,971 -60 % $ 68,842 $ 67,293 2 %

(1) See the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section and the Operating Results Reconcilations at the end of this release for additional information.


Term Life Insurance. Operating revenues were down slightly versus the prior year period reflecting lower sales partially offset by improved persistency. Investment income was lower largely related to the performance of the Citi reinsurance trust assets. Additionally, during the fourth quarter of 2010 we recognized a $3.0 million ceded premium recovery from a reinsurer that was previously deemed uncollectible. Operating income before income taxes decreased by 12%, or $5.1 million, versus the prior year period reflecting the $4.0 million one-time accounting correction to insurance expenses noted above. Excluding the impact of this item, insurance expenses were flat year-over-year as the expected run-off in reinsurance expense allowances from Citi was offset by non-recurring expenses in fourth quarter of 2009. Year-over-year trends in DAC amortization and benefits and claims reflected improved persistency, the lower interest rate assumption on new business issued in 2010 and level claims experience.

On a sequential quarter basis, fourth quarter 2010 operating revenues increased by 7%, or $8.0 million, largely as a result of growth in New Term premiums, the $3.0 million ceded premium recovery noted above and the performance of the reinsurance trust assets. Excluding the one-time accounting adjustment, operating benefits and expenses increased by 11%, or $7.7 million driven by the growth in New Term premiums and higher DAC amortization from seasonally lower fourth quarter persistency.

Investment and Savings Products. Operating revenues and income before income taxes in the fourth quarter of 2010 were both driven by higher sales and increased client asset values. Excluding the $11.6 million accounting correction noted previously, operating revenues increased to $91.4 million, or 10% over the prior year period. Excluding the $4.8 million net accounting correction, operating income before income taxes increased to $29.9 million, or 15% compared to fourth quarter a year ago. Growth in operating income before income taxes outpaced the growth in operating revenues primarily due to a volume-related incentive payment we earned for strong 2010 variable annuity sales.

Corporate and Other Distributed Products. Operating revenues decreased by 11%, or $4.4 million, in the fourth quarter of 2010 from a year ago, largely due to lower investment income primarily attributable to lower yield on invested assets and continued diminishing loan sales that had little impact on operating income before income taxes. Segment operating loss before income taxes was $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $2.7 million in the same period of 2009. This change primarily reflected lower investment income.

Corporate expense payments to Citi were lower by $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the prior year period, offset by $3.1 million in stand-alone public company expenses which continue to emerge as we transition from Citi-provided services. In addition, expenses in fourth quarter 2009 included non-recurring IPO-related expenses. Overall, expenses were flat compared to the prior year period.

Income Taxes

Our effective income tax rate for fourth quarter 2010 was 34.3%, compared to 36.6% for the same quarter a year ago reflecting the retroactive extension of certain expiring provisions in the United States tax law that previously required us to accelerate the recognition of tax on foreign investment income. We also benefited from a lower tax rate in Canada.

Capital and Liquidity

Primerica continues to be well capitalized, with a high-quality invested asset portfolio and positive cash flow for the quarter. Investments and cash totaled $2.28 billion as of December 31, 2010. Our invested asset portfolio had a net unrealized gain of $157.4 million (net of unrealized losses of $7.4 million) at December 31, 2010, down from a net unrealized gain of $188.9 million at September 30, 2010 as interest rates increased during the fourth quarter. Net realized gains for the quarter were $1.7 million, with minimal other-than-temporary impairments. As of December 31, 2010, the book yield on our fixed-income portfolio was 5.48%; including cash it was 5.15%.

As of December 31, 2010, our debt-to-capital ratio remained low at 17.3%. Net operating income return on adjusted stockholders’ equity was 13.8% for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. Net income return on stockholders’ equity was 14.9% for the same period.

Primerica Life Insurance Company, our primary underwriter, had statutory capital in excess of the applicable statutory requirements to support existing operations and to fund future growth. With a statutory risk-based capital (RBC) ratio estimated to be in excess of 570% as of December 31, 2010, we continue to be well positioned to support anticipated future growth.

Citi Reinsurance and Reorganization Transactions

In connection with Primerica’s April 1, 2010 initial public offering, the Company executed a series of reinsurance and reorganization transactions. These transactions had a significant impact on our financial position and will cause our financial results in the current and future periods to be materially different from those reflected in our historical financial statements. Accordingly, management believes that our operating results, which reflect the effect of these transactions, represent meaningful comparisons between 2010 and 2009.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We also present operating revenues, operating income before income taxes, net operating income and adjusted stockholders’ equity. Operating revenues, operating income before income taxes and net operating income exclude the impact of realized investment gains and losses for all periods presented and in fourth quarter 2010, income related to ceded premium recoveries which previously had not been recognized due to the uncertain nature of their recovery. Operating income before income taxes and net operating income exclude the expense associated with our IPO-related equity awards for all periods presented. Operating income (loss) before income taxes for all periods in 2009 reflects segment expense allocation reclassifications. Adjusted stockholders' equity excludes the impact of net unrealized gains and losses on invested assets for all periods presented. Periods ending prior to April 1, 2010 also give effect to the reinsurance and reorganization transactions as if they had occurred at the beginning of the period presented for the statement of income. Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the definitions of similar measures used by other companies. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating our financial performance. Furthermore, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures may provide users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results of prior periods as they are expected to be reflective of our core ongoing business. These measures have limitations, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Reconciliations of non-GAAP to GAAP financial measures are attached to this release.

Earnings Webcast Information

Primerica will hold a webcast Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at 9:00 am EST, to discuss fourth quarter results. This release and a detailed financial supplement will be posted on Primerica’s website.
