Business Wire

ARMONK, N.Y. -- November 07, 2012

MBIA Inc. (NYSE: MBI) today reported Adjusted Book Value (ABV) per share (a
non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial
Measures) of $30.64 per share at September 30, 2012 compared with $31.23 per
share at June 30, 2012. Book value per share was $13.25 as of September 30,
2012.

MBIA Inc.’s adjusted pre-tax loss (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached
Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) for the third quarter of 2012 was
$118 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $430 million for the
third quarter of 2011. The reduction in ABV and the adjusted pre-tax loss for
the three months ended September 30, 2012 were driven primarily by losses on
insured exposures. The lower adjusted pre-tax loss for the third quarter of
2012 compared with the third quarter of 2011 was primarily the result of
decreases in impairments on insured credit derivatives, insurance losses and
LAE, partially offset by a decrease in net gains related to unfavorable
changes in foreign exchange rates. ABV and adjusted pre-tax income (loss)
provide investors with additional views of the Company’s operating results
that management finds useful in measuring financial performance.

Net income available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2012 was
$7 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with net income of $444 million, or
$2.26 per share, for the third quarter of 2011. The decline in net income was
primarily the result of pre-tax unrealized changes in the fair value of
insured derivatives. In the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company
recorded a $33 million unrealized loss on insured credit derivatives compared
with a $776 million unrealized gain on insured credit derivatives in the
comparable period of 2011. The unrealized gain on insured credit derivatives
in the third quarter of 2011 resulted from a reduced market perception of MBIA
Insurance Corporation's (MBIA Corp.) credit quality and commutations of
insured exposures. The Company is required to adjust the values of its
derivative liabilities for the market's perception of its non-performance
risk. The decrease in the value of the derivative liabilities attributable to
the change in non-performance risk is reflected as an unrealized gain on the
income statement.

“Deterioration in the performance of commercial real estate exposures and
losses on insured RMBS transactions from ineligible mortgages drove our
adjusted pre-tax loss this quarter,” said MBIA Inc. President and Chief
Financial Officer Chuck Chaplin. “The path forward for our structured finance
subsidiary, MBIA Corp., requires that we collect our put-back recoverables,
principally from Countrywide and Bank of America, who continue to renege on
their contractual obligation to repurchase billions of dollars in ineligible
mortgages. Their default has put substantial pressure on MBIA Corp.’s
liquidity position. We remain confident that we will ultimately resolve our
litigation with Bank of America and collect the put-back recoverables, which
will improve MBIA Corp.’s stability.”

Year-to-Date Results

Net income available to common shareholders for the nine months ended
September 30, 2012 was $598 million, or $3.07 per share, compared with a net
loss of $693 million, or $3.50 per share, for the nine months ended September
30, 2011. The improvement in net income was primarily the result of pre-tax
unrealized changes in the fair value of insured derivatives. In the first nine
months of 2012, the Company recorded a $1.5 billion unrealized gain on insured
credit derivatives compared with an unrealized loss of $531 million in the
first nine months of 2011.

The adjusted pre-tax loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was
$818 million compared with an adjusted pre-tax loss of $244 million in the
comparable period of 2011. The unfavorable change for the nine months ended
September 30, 2012 was primarily due to increased losses on insured credit
derivatives and financial guarantee policies, an increase in operating
expenses due to a significant increase in legal and litigation related costs,
and lower net investment income.

U.S. Public Finance Insurance Results

The Company’s U.S. public finance insurance business is primarily conducted
through its National Public Finance Guarantee Corp. (National) subsidiary.

The U.S. public finance insurance segment recorded $164 million of pre-tax
income in the third quarter of 2012 compared with $157 million of pre-tax
income in the third quarter of 2011.

Total premiums earned in the U.S. public finance insurance segment were $134
million in the third quarter of 2012, down 9 percent from $147 million of
total premiums earned in the third quarter of 2011, reflecting a decrease in
scheduled premiums earned as the insured portfolio amortizes, partially offset
by an increase in refunding premiums earned.

Net investment income for the U.S. public finance insurance segment increased
6 percent to $56 million in the third quarter of 2012 from $53 million in the
comparable period of 2011, primarily due to a higher yield on the $1.6 billion
secured loan with MBIA Corp. relative to the previously invested assets.

Net gains on financial instruments at fair value and foreign exchange totaled
$22 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $6 million in the
third quarter of 2011. The increase resulted primarily from favorable market
conditions on asset sales made in connection with the ongoing management of
the U.S. public finance insurance segment’s investment portfolios.

The U.S. public finance insurance segment’s loss and loss adjustment expenses
were $4 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared with $10 million in the
third quarter of 2011.

Expenses associated with the amortization of deferred acquisition costs
totaled $26 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $22 million in
the third quarter of 2011.

Operating expenses were $20 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared
with $19 million in the comparable period of 2011.

As of September 30, 2012, National’s statutory capital was $3.1 billion and
its claims-paying resources (as described in the attached Explanation of
Non-GAAP Financial Measures) totaled $5.6 billion.

Structured Finance and International Insurance Results

The structured finance and international insurance business is primarily
conducted through MBIA Corp. and its subsidiaries.

The structured finance and international insurance segment had an adjusted
pre-tax loss of $224 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared with an
adjusted pre-tax loss of $556 million for the third quarter of 2011. Premiums
earned, net investment income, fees and reimbursements, and premiums and fees
on insured derivatives totaled $132 million in the third quarter of 2012. All
other line items in the aggregate, except losses and credit impairments (a
non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial
Measures) and loss-related expenses, had a net $104 million negative impact on
the adjusted pre-tax loss. Losses, credit impairments and loss-related
expenses on insured exposures totaled $252 million in the third quarter of
2012, compared with $631 million in the third quarter of 2011.

The following is a summary of MBIA Corp.’s insured portfolio economic loss
activity in the third quarter. Economic losses for a reporting period
represent the change in the Company’s estimate of the present value of
expected net future claims payments without regard to the manner in which they
are presented in the Company’s financial statements.

* includes first-lien RMBS


In the third quarter, the Company increased its expectations of future
payments on second-lien RMBS exposures by $60 million reflecting slower than
expected declines in early stage delinquencies and faster than expected
prepayment speeds within these transactions. Expected salvage increased by $2
million reflecting an increase in expected recoveries from contractual claims
related to ineligible mortgage loans improperly included in the insured
securitizations largely offset by a decrease in expected recoveries from
excess spread due to faster principal repayment on the underlying loans. The
Company’s estimates for expected recoveries related to “put-backs” of
ineligible mortgage loans totaled $3.2 billion as of September 30, 2012.
However, based on its assessment of the strength of its contract claims, the
Company continues to believe it is entitled to collect the full amount of its
cumulative incurred losses on these transactions, which totaled $5.0 billion
as of September 30, 2012. In addition, the Company believes it is entitled to
receive interest on any judgment it obtains in any litigation seeking to
collect these unpaid contract claims.

In the third quarter of 2012, the Company estimated $123 million of
incremental economic losses on certain insured transactions backed by pools of
CMBS. The increase reflects additional deterioration within some insured
transactions.

Third quarter economic losses on multi-sector ABS CDOs totaled $26 million,
driven primarily by higher than expected loan loss severities in first-lien
mortgage loan securitizations backing these transactions due to recoveries of
advances by the servicers of the underlying loans. Included in the $45 million
of “Other” economic loss activity were approximately $47 million of losses on
insured first-lien mortgage loan securitizations where loan loss severities
were also impacted by recoveries of servicer advances.

There were no material commutations of insured exposure during the third
quarter.

Portions of the $252 million of total economic losses are on policies subject
to insurance accounting while other amounts relate to losses on insured VIEs
or insured credit derivatives for which GAAP specifies different accounting.
The following is a summary of third quarter economic losses based on those
categories:

Net payments on insured second-lien RMBS exposures totaled $130 million in the
third quarter of 2012 compared with $168 million in the second quarter of 2012
and $195 million in the third quarter of 2011.

As of September 30, 2012, MBIA Corp.’s statutory balance sheet reflected $1.1
billion in cash and invested assets including $386 million of cash, short-term
investments and other highly liquid investments available to meet liquidity
demands, and excluding amounts held by subsidiaries.

MBIA Corp. had statutory capital of $1.5 billion and claims-paying resources
totaling $5.1 billion at September 30, 2012.

Advisory Services

The Company’s Advisory Services business is primarily conducted in its
Cutwater Asset Management subsidiaries. Cutwater recorded a pre-tax loss of $2
million in the third quarter of 2012 compared with a pre-tax loss of $1
million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase in the pre-tax loss in the
third quarter of 2012 compared with the third quarter of 2011 was primarily
the result of lower investment management fees.

Corporate Segment

The Corporate segment comprises MBIA Inc.’s holding company activities and
certain subsidiaries, including Optinuity Alliance Resources Corporation. The
Corporate segment recorded pre-tax income of $22 million in the third quarter
of 2012 compared with a pre-tax loss of $21 million in the third quarter of
2011. The improvement in the Corporate segment's pre-tax income was driven by
a $35 million fee paid by the Company’s conduit segment in the third quarter
of 2012 for administrative and other services. The fees for these services may
vary significantly from period to period.

As of September 30, 2012, the corporate activities of MBIA Inc. had $335
million of cash and highly liquid assets available for general corporate
liquidity purposes.

Wind-down Operations

The Company’s wind-down operations comprise its ALM and Conduit segments, both
of which are in run-off.

The Company’s wind-down operations recorded a pre-tax loss of $77 million in
the third quarter of 2012 compared with a pre-tax loss of $9 million in the
third quarter of 2011. The pre-tax loss in the third quarter of 2012 was
driven by $38 million in net losses on financial instruments at fair value and
foreign exchange, $37 million in VIE operating expenses resulting primarily
from a fee paid to the Corporate segment for administrative and other services
and $22 million in interest expense, partially offset by $16 million in net
gains on the extinguishment of debt. The pre-tax loss in the third quarter of
2011 was driven by negative net interest spread in the ALM business.

Ongoing negative net interest spread in the ALM business, a portion of which
is included in the $38 million net loss on financial instruments at fair value
and foreign exchange, totaled approximately $22 million in the quarter.

The Conduit segment repurchased $118 million par amount of medium-term notes
at discounts during the third quarter, resulting in net gains on the
extinguishment of debt that totaled $16 million.

As of September 30, 2012, the ALM business had cash and short-term investments
of $284 million, of which $97 million was not pledged directly as collateral.
An additional $298 million of cash as of September 30, 2012 was pledged to a
swap counterparty. Of this amount, $215 million is netted within “Derivative
liabilities,” $17 million is netted within “Other liabilities” and $66 million
is included in “Other assets” on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following are explanations of why MBIA believes that the non-GAAP
financial measures used in this press release, which serve to supplement GAAP
information, are meaningful to investors.

Adjusted Book Value: Adjusted Book Value (ABV), a non-GAAP measure, is used by
the Company to supplement its analysis of GAAP book value. The Company uses
ABV as a measure of fundamental value and considers the change in ABV an
important measure of periodic financial performance. ABV adjusts GAAP book
value to remove the impact of certain items which the Company believes will
reverse over time, as well as to add in the impact of certain items which the
Company believes will be realized in GAAP book value in future periods. The
Company has limited such adjustments to those items that it deems to be
important to fundamental value and performance and which the likelihood and
amount can be reasonably estimated. ABV assumes no new business activity. The
Company has presented ABV to allow investors and analysts to evaluate the
Company using the same measure that MBIA’s management regularly uses to
measure financial performance. ABV is not a substitute for and should not be
viewed in isolation from GAAP book value.

ABV is calculated on a consolidated basis and a segment basis. ABV by segment
provides information about each segment’s contribution to consolidated ABV and
is calculated using the same formula. ABV per share represents that amount of
ABV allocated to each common share outstanding at the measurement date.

Adjusted Pre-tax Income (Loss): Adjusted pre-tax income (loss), a non-GAAP
measure, is used by the Company to supplement its analysis of GAAP pre-tax
income (loss). The Company uses adjusted pre-tax income (loss) as a measure of
fundamental periodic financial performance. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss)
adjusts GAAP pre-tax income (loss) to remove the effects of consolidating
insured VIEs and gains and losses related to fair valuing insured credit
derivatives, which the Company believes will reverse over time, and adds in
changes in the present value of insurance claims the Company expects to pay on
insured credit derivatives based on its ongoing insurance loss monitoring and
loss adjustment expenses. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is not a substitute
for and should not be viewed in isolation from GAAP pre-tax income (loss) and
the Company’s definition of adjusted pre-tax income (loss) may differ from
that used by other companies.

Claims-paying Resources (CPR): CPR is a key measure of the resources available
to National and MBIA Corp. to pay claims under their respective insurance
policies. CPR consists of total financial resources and reserves calculated on
a statutory basis. CPR has been a common measure used by financial guarantee
insurance companies to report and compare resources and continues to be used
by MBIA’s management to evaluate changes in such resources. The Company has
provided CPR to allow investors and analysts to evaluate National and MBIA
Corp. using the same measure that MBIA’s management uses to evaluate their
resources to pay claims under their respective insurance policies. There is no
directly comparable GAAP measure.

Credit Impairments on Insured Derivatives: Credit impairments on insured
derivatives represent actual payments for the period plus the present value of
the Company’s estimate of expected future claim payments for such
transactions, using a discount rate required by statutory accounting
principles, plus loss adjustment expenses.  Since the Company’s insured credit
derivatives have similar terms, conditions, risks, and economic profiles to
its financial guarantee insurance policies, the Company evaluates them for
impairment periodically in the same way that it estimates loss and LAE for its
financial guarantee insurance policies. Credit impairments on insured
derivatives are equal to the Company’s statutory losses and loss adjustment
expenses for such contracts.

Credit impairments on insured derivatives may differ from the fair values
recorded in the Company’s financial statements. The Company expects that the
majority of its exposure written in derivative form will not be settled at
fair value. The fair value of an insured derivative contract will be
influenced by a variety of market and transaction-specific factors that may be
unrelated to potential future claim payments. In the absence of credit
impairments or the termination of derivatives at losses, the cumulative
unrealized losses recorded from fair valuing insured derivatives should
reverse before or at the maturity of the contracts. Contracts also may be
settled prior to maturity at amounts that may be more or less than their
recorded fair values. Those settlements can result in realized gains or
losses, and the reversal of unrealized losses. For these reasons, the Company
believes its disclosure of credit impairments on insured derivatives provides
additional meaningful information to investors about potential realized losses
on these contracts.
