Insr Insurance Group ASA: Insr: Q4 and Preliminary 2020 results - Wind down according to plan

Insr Insurance Group ASA (OSE: INSR) announces results for fourth quarter of 2020 and preliminary annual results.

A presentation of the results by the Group's senior management will take place today at 08:30 CET - see details below. 

Insr is in a special situation, with the task of and focus on winding down the insurance business. The key parts in that process are to transfer all customers to new insurance carriers, transfer data to the relevant parties and close all business relationships.  

The net result in Q4 2020 is positive at NOK 17.6 million. It is strongly affected by the process of winding down the business. The isolated insurance business produces a decent fourth quarter with a gross loss ratio of 72,6%. However, the result is affected by the special circumstances in which Insr finds itself. For instance, the result includes NOK 139,9 million in income from the portfolio transfer to Storebrand. Moreover, it includes costs related to the wind down process of the business. E.g., IT depreciation, stay-on packages and termination of contracts with sales partners.   

The positive result in Q4 has had a positive effect on the solvency ratio. Following Q4 2020, the solvency ratio is 107,9%. As previously communicated, there is a risk of the solvency ratio falling below 100% during the second half of 2021. The management team is working hard to ensure that this does not happen.

  

The key focus areas in succeeding are the following 

Maintaining good control and understanding of the financial situation 

Moving insurance risk out of the company, to secure the customers' future and lower the capital requirement 

Reducing costs by working efficiently and closing down business agreements, especially on the IT-side 

 

Niclas Ward, CEO, comments: The task for the company is very clear, and there is a strong focus to succeed, for the benefit of customers, shareholders and employees. It is still too early to say what the end state will be, but everybody on the Insr team is working hard to reach a good end solution.
