Update on Run-Off Program

As previously disclosed, we anticipate one-time impacts from the run-off of a US program through 2023. The company estimates a negative after-tax net income impact of this run-off in the first-half of 2023 in the range of $5 – $9 million.

  • A negative estimated after-tax impact to net income in the range of $11 - $13 million for the first quarter of 2023, driven by costs of protection, other run-off costs and mitigated by earned premium on the program.
  • A positive estimated after-tax impact to net income in the range of $4 - $6 million for the second quarter of 2023, driven by earned premium on the program and mitigated by run-off costs and costs of protection.

The company intends to provide an estimate of the second-half 2023 impact of the run-off in advance of third quarter reporting.

First Quarter Results

In the context of a shift to IFRS 17 reporting, we will include an Operating Earnings Per Share(1) metric which reflects the core operations of the business. This metric will exclude the impact of the run-off, amongst other items which introduce volatility as a result of new reporting standards. Operating Earnings Per Share is the metric most comparable to analyst's consensus Earnings Per Share.

In Q1 2023 we expect Operating Earnings Per Share will be in the range of $0.57 - $0.62. As a result of IFRS 17 we expect a positive adjustment to shareholders' equity as at December 31, 2022 of approximately $10 million.

(1) Operating earnings per share is a non-IFRS ratio. See MD&A for details on composition, as well as each non-IFRS financial measure used as a component of ratio, and an explanation of how it provides useful information to an investor. Non-IFRS ratios are not standardized under the financial reporting framework used to prepare the financial statements of the Company to which the ratio relates and might not be comparable to similar ratios disclosed by other companies.
