  • Voya to hold investor day on Tuesday, Nov. 13

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2018.

“During the third quarter, we continued to make strong progress on our 2018 priorities,” said Rodney O. Martin, Jr., chairman and CEO, Voya Financial, Inc. “Our commitment to achieving our growth plans this year was demonstrated in the third quarter by positive net flows in both Retirement and Investment Management and an increase in annualized in-force premiums in Employee Benefits. We also generated strong bottom-line results. Excluding the negative impact of DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking and the benefit of prepayment fees and alternative investment income above our long-term expectations, normalized third-quarter 2018 adjusted operating earnings were $1.34 per diluted share, after-tax. This demonstrates our commitment to improving our adjusted operating earnings per share to reach $1.30 to $1.40 per share by the end of the second quarter of 2019.

"In addition to organic growth, we continued to execute on our capital initiatives as we repurchased $250 million of common stock in the third quarter. We also received an additional share repurchase authorization of $500 million from the board of directors, which will enable us to continue to deliver further shareholder value through share repurchases. Finally, we continued to focus on achieving cost savings and began to take actions to lower our debt-to-capital ratio by the end of this year.

“We are looking forward to our upcoming Investor Day on Nov. 13, when we'll share our long-term growth plans and opportunities to build upon the profitable growth we've achieved over the past several years, generate further shareholder value, expand our relationships with our customers, and achieve our vision to be America's Retirement Company,” added Martin.

Voya also announced today that the company has concluded the strategic review of its Individual Life business. The company will cease all new sales of individual life insurance on Dec. 31, 2018 and retain the in-force block of policies.

“Following the sale of substantially all of our individual annuities businesses earlier this year, we conducted a thorough review of our Individual Life business to determine the best path forward. We carefully considered our broader, go-forward strategy of largely focusing on the workplace and institutional clients, analyzed the options available to us, and concluded that ceasing new sales aligns with our plans to focus on our higher-growth, higher-return, capital-light businesses: Retirement, Investment Management and Employee Benefits,” said Martin.

“Further, continuing to own the in-force block will benefit shareholders in that it will provide earnings and capital diversification and generate higher free cash flows. Specifically, we expect our Individual Life business to increase free cash flow conversion to 70% to 80% and generate meaningful free cash flow of at least $1 billion over the next five to six years.

“Voya will continue to be good stewards of shareholder capital. As we have over the past several years, we will continue to explore and pursue opportunities to maximize the value of our in-force life insurance business,” concluded Martin.

Voya will continue to report its Individual Life segment financial results as part of the company’s adjusted operating earnings.

1 This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted operating earnings and book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income. More information on non-GAAP measures and reconciliations to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures can be found in the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this release and in the company’s Quarterly Investor Supplement.

Net income available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2018 was $142 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared with $149 million, or $0.81 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2017. The improvement on a per-share basis reflects the company's share repurchases. Total third-quarter 2018 net income available to common shareholders was lower due to higher income from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2018 being more than offset by the benefit of income from discontinued operations in the third quarter of 2017.

Adjusted operating earnings for the third quarter of 2018 were $139 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, after-tax, up from $29 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, after-tax, in the third quarter of 2017. The increase was largely due to third-quarter 2018 results having lower negative DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking, higher alternative investment income, lower expenses and higher fee-based margins.

THIRD-QUARTER 2018 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Continued execution of the company's 2018 priorities, including growth, capital and cost saving initiatives.
  • Capital initiatives:
    • Repurchased $250 million of Voya common stock during the third quarter — the company plans to purchase an additional $250 million of common stock in the fourth quarter and deliver on its previously announced plan in December 2017 to repurchase $1.5 billion in shares by the end of 2018.
    • Issued $325 million of preferred shares in the third quarter, the proceeds of which will be utilized to reduce outstanding senior debt by $325 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.
    • Pro-forma for the expected debt repurchase in the fourth quarter of 2018, excess capital was $813 million as of Sept. 30, 2018.
  • Strong performance from Voya's higher-growth, higher-return, capital-light businesses:
    • Retirement achieved record adjusted operating earnings (excluding DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking) of $203 million, largely driven by strong prepayment fees and alternative investment income as well as higher fee-based margins. Retirement Full Service recurring deposits were $2.3 billion, and Full Service net flows were $99 million in the third quarter.
    • Investment Management reported $48 million of adjusted operating earnings and generated $1.4 billion of Institutional net flows, reflecting strong commercial growth in the business. Third-party sales were $5.5 billion during the quarter, and third-party AUM grew to $155 billion as of Sept. 30, 2018.
    • Employee Benefits generated adjusted operating earnings of $50 million, including underwriting results that reflect an improved loss ratio for Stop Loss. Annualized in-force premiums increased 2% compared with the third quarter of 2017, reflecting both continued pricing discipline and a strong increase in the Voluntary business.
  • Total company assets under management and administration grew to $543 billion as of Sept. 30, 2018.

SEGMENT DISCUSSIONS

The following segment discussions compare the third quarter of 2018 with the third quarter of 2017, unless otherwise noted. All figures are presented before income taxes.

Retirement

Retirement adjusted operating earnings were $253 million, up from $107 million. The increase was largely due to:

  • $50 million of positive DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking in the third quarter of 2018 compared with $44 million of negative DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking in the third quarter of 2017;
  • $35 million of higher fee-based margin primarily due to higher average AUM (driven by both equity market and business growth) as well as the benefit of fees from the movement of certain investment-only products to Retirement from Corporate;
  • $33 million of higher investment income, including prepayment fee and alternative investment income that was, in aggregate, $27 million above the company's long-term expectations (before the effect of income taxes and DAC) in the third quarter of 2018; and
  • $20 million of higher administrative expenses largely due to the movement of certain investment-only products and strategic investment spending to Retirement from Corporate.

Investment Management

Investment Management adjusted operating earnings were $48 million, compared with $54 million. The decline was largely due to:

  • $6 million of lower fee-based revenues as smaller general account average AUM resulting from the company's June 1, 2018 sale of substantially all of its annuities businesses was partially offset by growth in third-party management fees (driven by positive net flows and higher third-party AUM);
  • $3 million of higher investment capital revenues, which were also $3 million above long-term expectations in the third quarter of 2018; and
  • $3 million of higher expenses primarily due to higher volume expenses associated with higher revenue.

Total Investment Management AUM grew to $210 billion as of Sept. 30, 2018, up from $207 billion as of June 30, 2018. The decline from Sept. 30, 2017 reflects the sale of substantially all of the company's individual annuities business on June 1, 2018. During the third quarter of 2018, Investment Management net inflows of $477 million were driven by strong Institutional net flows of $1.4 billion, primarily from fixed income asset classes.

Employee Benefits

Employee Benefits adjusted operating earnings were $50 million, down from $58 million. The decline was largely due to:

  • $5 million of lower underwriting results due to a non-recurring favorable reserve adjustment of $25 million in the third quarter of 2017 — adjusting for the reserve change, underwriting results improved by $20 million due to improvement in the loss ratio for Stop Loss and growth in the Voluntary block, which were partially offset by a higher Group Life loss ratio;
  • $4 million of higher administrative expenses to support growth in the business; and
  • $2 million of higher investment income, including prepayment fee and alternative investment income that was, in aggregate, $2 million above the company's long-term expectations (before the effect of income taxes and DAC) in the third quarter of 2018.

Compared with the third quarter of 2017, total Employee Benefits in-force premiums increased 2%, reflecting strong growth in Voluntary premiums and continued pricing discipline in Stop Loss. During the third quarter of 2018, the Stop Loss and Group Life loss ratios were within the company's targeted annual range of 77-80%.

Individual Life

Individual Life adjusted operating earnings were $(134) million compared with $(66) million. The higher loss was due to:

  • $57 million of higher negative DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking driven by assumption changes, primarily related to increased expected cost of reinsurance;
  • $11 million of higher investment income, including prepayment fee and alternative investment income that was, in aggregate, $10 million above the company's long-term expectations (before the effect of income taxes and DAC) in the third quarter of 2018; and
  • $4 million of higher administrative expenses due to the reallocation of strategic investment spending from Corporate into the business segments.

Total Individual Life sales, which primarily consist of indexed life insurance, were $20 million, up from $18 million.

Corporate

Corporate adjusted operating losses were $(54) million, including $5 million of positive DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking, compared with losses of $(110) million. The improvement was largely due to the reallocation of strategic investment spending into the business segments, revenue from the company's transition service agreements associated with the sale of substantially all of its individual annuities businesses on June 1, 2018, and higher earnings from the company's legacy annuities business.

Share Repurchases

In the third quarter of 2018, Voya repurchased 5,056,422 shares of its common stock at an average price per share of $49.44 for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $250 million.

The company announced today that its board of directors has increased the amount of the company’s common stock authorized for repurchase under the company’s share repurchase program by an additional $500 million. This additional authorization increases the aggregate amount available under the company’s share repurchase authorization to approximately $761 million as of Sept. 30, 2018. Under its share repurchase program, the company may, from time to time, purchase shares of its common stock through various means, including open market transactions, privately negotiated transactions, forward, derivative, accelerated repurchase, or automatic repurchase transactions, or tender offers. The additional $500 million share repurchase authorization expires on Dec. 31, 2019 (unless extended), and does not obligate the company to purchase any shares. The authorization for the share repurchase program may be terminated, increased or decreased by the board of directors at any time.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes is a measure used to evaluate segment performance. We believe that Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes provides a meaningful measure of its business and segment performances and enhances the understanding of our financial results by focusing on the operating performance and trends of the underlying business segments and excluding items that tend to be highly variable from period to period based on capital market conditions and/or other factors. We use the same accounting policies and procedures to measure segment Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes as we do for the directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes.

Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes does not replace Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes as the comparable U.S. GAAP measure of our consolidated results of operations. Therefore, we believe that it is useful to evaluate both Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes and Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes when reviewing our financial and operating performance. Each segment’s Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes is calculated by adjusting Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes for the following items:

  • Net investment gains (losses), net of related amortization of DAC, VOBA, sales inducements and unearned revenue, which are significantly influenced by economic and market conditions, including interest rates and credit spreads, and are not indicative of normal operations. Net investment gains (losses) include gains (losses) on the sale of securities, impairments, changes in the fair value of investments using the FVO unrelated to the implied loan-backed security income recognition for certain mortgage-backed obligations and changes in the fair value of derivative instruments, excluding realized gains (losses) associated with swap settlements and accrued interest;
  • Net guaranteed benefit hedging gains (losses), which are significantly influenced by economic and market conditions and are not indicative of normal operations, include changes in the fair value of derivatives related to guaranteed benefits, net of related reserve increases (decreases) and net of related amortization of DAC, VOBA and sales inducements, less the estimated cost of these benefits. The estimated cost, which is reflected in operating results, reflects the expected cost of these benefits if markets perform in line with our long-term expectations and includes the cost of hedging. Other derivative and reserve changes related to guaranteed benefits are excluded from operating results, including the impacts related to changes in nonperformance spread;
  • Income (loss) related to businesses exited through reinsurance or divestment that do not qualify as discontinued operations, which includes gains and (losses) associated with transactions to exit blocks of business (including net investment gains (losses) on securities sold and expenses directly related to these transactions) and residual run-off activity; these gains and (losses) are often related to infrequent events and do not reflect performance of operating segments. Excluding this activity better reveals trends in our core business, which would be obscured by including the effects of business exited, and more closely aligns Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes with how we manages our segments;
  • Income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest, which represents the interest of shareholders, other than those of Voya Financial, Inc., in the gains and (losses) of consolidated entities, or the attribution of results from consolidated VIEs or VOEs to which we are not economically entitled;
  • Income (loss) related to early extinguishment of debt, which includes losses incurred as a result of transactions where we repurchase outstanding principal amounts of debt; these losses are excluded from Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes since the outcome of decisions to restructure debt are not indicative of normal operations;
  • Impairment of goodwill, value of management contract rights and value of customer relationships acquired, which includes losses as a result of impairment analysis; these represent losses related to infrequent events and do not reflect normal, cash-settled expenses;
  • Immediate recognition of net actuarial gains (losses) related to our pension and other postretirement benefit obligations and gains (losses) from plan amendments and curtailments, which includes actuarial gains and losses as a result of differences between actual and expected experience on pension plan assets or projected benefit obligation during a given period. We immediately recognize actuarial gains and (losses) related to pension and other postretirement benefit obligations and gains and losses from plan adjustments and curtailments. These amounts do not reflect normal, cash-settled expenses and are not indicative of current Operating expense fundamentals; and
  • Other items not indicative of normal operations or performance of our segments or may be related to infrequent events including capital or organizational restructurings including certain costs related to debt and equity offerings as well as stock and/or cash based deal contingent awards; expenses associated with the rebranding of Voya Financial, Inc.; severance and other third-party expenses associated with restructuring. These items vary widely in timing, scope and frequency between periods as well as between companies to which we are compared. Accordingly, we adjust for these items as we believe that these items distort the ability to make a meaningful evaluation of the current and future performance of our segments. Additionally, with respect to restructuring, these costs represent changes in operations rather than investments in the future capabilities of our operating businesses.

Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes for Corporate includes Net investment gains (losses) and Net guaranteed benefit hedging gains (losses) associated with the Retained Business in periods prior to 2018. These retained amounts are insignificant and do not distort the ability to make a meaningful evaluation of the trends of Corporate activities.

Income (loss) related to businesses exited through reinsurance or divestment (including net investment gains (losses) on securities sold and expenses directly related to these transactions) is excluded from the results of operations from Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes. When we present the adjustments to Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes on a consolidated basis, each adjustment excludes the relative portions attributable to businesses exited through reinsurance or divestment.

The most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure to Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes is Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes. For a reconciliation of Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes to Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, see the tables that accompany this release, as well as our Quarterly Investor Supplement.

Adjusted operating earnings - excluding unlocking is also a non-GAAP financial measure. This measure excludes from Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes the following items:

  • DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking; and
  • The net gains included in Adjusted operating earnings from a distribution of cash and securities in conjunction with a Lehman Brothers bankruptcy settlement ("Lehman Recovery"), and losses as a result of the decision to dispose of certain Low Income Housing Tax Credit partnerships ("LIHTC") as a mean of exiting this asset class.

Because DAC/VOBA and other intangibles unlocking can be volatile, excluding the effect of this item can improve period to period comparability. The net gain from the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy settlement and loss from the disposition of low-income housing tax credit partnerships affected run-rate results and we believe that this effect is not reflective of our ongoing performance. .

In addition to Net income (loss) per common share, we report Adjusted operating earnings per common share (diluted) because we believe that Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes provides a meaningful measure of its business and segment performances and enhances the understanding of our financial results by focusing on the operating performance and trends of the underlying business segments and excluding items that tend to be highly variable from period to period based on capital market conditions and/or other factors.

In addition to book value per common share including Accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI), we also report book value per common share excluding AOCI and shareholders' equity excluding AOCI and preferred stock. Included in AOCI are investment portfolio unrealized gains or losses. In the ordinary course of business we do not plan to sell most investments for the sole purpose of realizing gains or losses, and book value per common share excluding AOCI and common shareholders' equity excluding AOCI provide a measure consistent with that view. The Adjusted debt to capital ratio includes a 25% equity treatment afforded to subordinated debt, 100% equity treatment afforded to preferred stock and excludes AOCI.

For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures, refer to the tables that accompany this release, as well as our Quarterly Investor Supplement.

We analyze our segment performance based on the sources of earnings. We believe this supplemental information is useful in order to gain a better understanding of our Adjusted operating earnings before income taxes for the following reasons: (1) we analyze our business using this information and (2) this presentation can be helpful for investors to understand the main drivers of Adjusted operating earnings (loss) before income taxes. The sources of earnings are defined as such:

  • Investment spread and other investment income consists of net investment income and net realized investment gains (losses) associated with swap settlements and accrued interest, less interest credited to policyholder reserves.
  • Fee based margin consists primarily of fees earned on assets under management ("AUM"), assets under administration ("AUA"), and transaction based recordkeeping fees.
  • Net underwriting gain (loss) and other revenue contains the following: the difference between fees charged for insurance risks and incurred benefits, including mortality, morbidity, and surrender results, contractual charges for universal life and annuity contracts, the change in the unearned revenue reserve for universal life contracts, and that portion of traditional life insurance premiums intended to cover expenses and profits. Certain contract charges for universal life insurance are not recognized in income immediately, but are deferred as unearned revenues and are amortized into income in a manner similar to the amortization of DAC.
  • Administrative expenses are general expenses, net of amounts capitalized as acquisition expenses and exclude commission expenses and fees on letters of credit.
  • Trail commissions are commissions paid that are not deferred and thus recorded directly to expense.
  • For a detail explanation of DAC/VOBA and other intangibles amortization/unlocking refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

More details on these sources of earnings can be found in Voya Financial’s Quarterly Investor Supplement, which is available on Voya Financial’s investor relations website, investors.voya.com.

(1) Voya Financial assumes a 32% tax rate on adjusted operating earnings and all components of adjusted operating earnings described as "after tax" for 2017. For 2018, the adjusted operating effective tax rate is based on the actual income tax expense for the current period related to Income (loss) from continuing operations, adjusted for estimated taxes on non-operating items and non-operating tax impacts, such as those related to restructuring, changes in a tax valuation allowance and changes to tax law, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. A 35% tax rate is applied to all non-operating items in 2017 and 21% in 2018. The 32% tax rate for 2017 adjusted operating earnings and components reflects the estimated benefit of the dividend received deduction related to the company's Retirement, Investment Management, Employee Benefits and Individual Life segments.

(2) “Other adjustments” consists of net guaranteed benefit hedging gains (losses) and related charges and adjustments; income (loss) from business exited; immediate recognition of net actuarial gains (losses) related to pension and other post-retirement benefit obligations and gains (losses) from plan amendments and curtailments; expenses associated with the rebranding of Voya Financial from ING U.S.; and restructuring expenses (severance, lease write-offs, etc.).
