Guardian finishing strongly in 2022

Guardian Holdings generated a 131 percent surge in profit attributable to shareholders of $1.06 billion for the nine months to September 2022, up from $457 million in the 2021 period, profit jumped 210 percent in the third quarter to $620 million from $201 million in 2021.

Earnings per share amounted to $2.67 for the September quarter and $4.55 for the nine months to September, that should end the year around $7 per share, with a PE of 3.5 times current year’s earnings and a stock price at J$530.
The vastly improved 2022 results follow a 5.3 percent increase in net premium income to $3.57 billion in the nine months to September, from $3.39 billion in the previous year and a 5.5 percent rise for the quarter to $1.2 billion versus $1.14 billion in 2021. Net income from all activities ended at $2.4 billion in 2022 for the nine months, up 26 percent from $1.89 billion in 2021 and for the September quarter $1.06 billion with a 67 percent increase over $634 million in 2021.
Net income from investment activity slipped 18 percent from $1.15 billion in the nine months to September 2021 to $942 million for the 2022 period. However, the quarterly figures reflect a marginal decline from $383 million in 2021 to 372 million this year.
Operating expenses of $1.15 billion for the nine months of September 2022 rose 6.9 percent from $1.07 billion and increased 33 percent for the quarter to $405 million from $305 million in 2021. Finance charges of $155 million for the nine months to September 2022 popped marginally from $150 million in 2021 and for the quarter $51 million versus $47 million in 2021.
Provision for taxation was $113 million for the year to September 2022, a reduction from the $136 million for the same period in the previous year and $68 million for the quarter in 2022 versus $59 million in 2021.
According to chairman, Patrick Hilton, “the group has been on a transformation journey centred on technology, people and processes. We have invested heavily in technology to bring world class customer service to our markets, leverage of scale of our group and reduce our operating costs. While in recent years, we have reaped some of the benefits, we are now at a resultant juncture where the payback on this investment is rapidly accelerating. In 2022 the group implemented many of these initiatives for our life, health and pension segment, with the alignment of our Trinidad and Jamaican operations bringing to reality operational synergies, cost savings and centres of excellence. These activities result in long-term cost savings which have the effect of creating favourable reserve movements contributing to the exceptional performance recorded in the year to date.”

.

The group has two primary areas of operation. The life health and pension business generated underwriting revenues of $2.97 billion in 2022 and delivered net income from operations of $1.2 billion compared to underrating revenues of $2.77 billion in 2021, with an operating profit of $621 million. The other major segment of property and casualty business generated underwriting revenues of $999 million with an operating profit of $162 million in 2022 versus revenues of $961 million in 2021 with an operating profit of $121 million.
The group has total assets of $34.46 billion as of September compared to three $34.43 billion at the end of September 2021 with shareholders’ equity of $5.4 billion up from $4.87 billion at the end of 2021. The main assets include investment securities at $21 billion, loans and receivables at $2.4 billion, cash and cash equivalent at $3.8 billion dollars and investment property amounting to $1.67 billion. The main liability comprises insurance contracts of $19 billion and financial liability of three-point infant investment contract liabilities and third party mutual funds of $4.1 billion.
Cash flow brought in $1.44 billion to September. After investment activities, the group ended with $375 million before funds were used in financing and other activities and ended with negative flows of $103 million.
