Independence Holding Co. Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2014

For the three months ended December 31, 2014, the company reported net income attributable to IHC increased to $0.23 per share, diluted, or $4,034,000, compared to $0.10 per share, diluted, or $1,748,000, for the three months ended December 31, 2013. Revenues decreased to $127,090,000 for the three months as compared to revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2013 of $143,618,000. Income before income taxes was $3,199,000 compared to $3,719,000 a year ago. For the year ended December 31, 2014, the company reported net income attributable to IHC increased to $0.92 per share, diluted, or $16,293,000, compared to $0.77 per share, diluted, or $13,779,000, for the year ended December 31, 2013. Revenues decreased to $533,933,000 for the year ended compared to revenues for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $575,044,000. The decrease in revenues for both the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2014 is primarily due to the runoff of major medical business from lines that exited largely as a result of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, offset in part by an increase in medical stop-loss and specialty health premiums. Income before income taxes was $23,312,000 compared to $23,654,000 a year ago.

For the quarter, the company reported premiums earned was $117.705 million against $125.174 million a year ago. Net investment income was $5,439,000 compared to $6,841,000 for the same period of last year. Revenues were $129,752,000 compared to $141,644,000 for the same period of last year. Income before income taxes was $7,965,000 compared to $5,996,000 for the same period of last year. Net income attributable to IHC was $4,710,000 compared to $3,639,000 for the same period of last year. Diluted income per common share was $0.27 compared to $0.21 for the same period of last year.

Net income attributable to IHC was $12,259,000 compared to $12,031,000 for the same period of last year. Diluted income per common share was $0.69 compared to $0.67 for the same period of last year. The decrease in revenues for both the third quarter and the first nine months of 2014 is primarily due to the runoff of major medical business from lines that exited largely as a result of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act ("ACA"), offset in part by an increase in medical stop-loss and specialty health premiums. The book value was $16.37 per share at September 30, 2014, an increase of 8% over the book value per share at December 31, 2013. The company is optimistic that the operating results for the fourth quarter of 2014 will compare very favorably to the comparable period in 2013, even after the aforementioned expected charges in the fourth quarter of 2014, largely as a result of the accelerating growth in premiums and income from direct medical stop-loss line of business, the continued profitability of the group business, and the transition of fully insured division to a specialty health insurance operation with controlled distribution and higher-margin lines of business.
