  • The management fee rate was 25 percent for both the second quarters of 2011 and 2010.  Direct written premiums of the property and casualty insurance operations, upon which the management fee is calculated, increased 5.3 percent in the second quarter of 2011, due to a 2.9 percent increase in policies in force and modest increases in average premium.  The year-over-year average premium per policy for all lines of business increased 2.7 percent at June 30, 2011, compared to a decrease of 0.5 percent at June 30, 2010.

  • The cost of management operations increased to $230 million in the second quarter 2011 from $217 million in the second quarter of 2010.  Second quarter 2011 commissions increased $8 million compared to the second quarter of 2010, while second quarter 2011 non-commission expense increased $5 million.  The increase in non-commission expense was primarily due to increases in personnel costs of $2 million, professional fees of $2 million and software expenses of $1 million.

  • Net investment income, which primarily includes interest and dividends on bonds and stocks, decreased $5 million in the second quarter of 2011.  The second quarter of 2010 includes $6 million of net investment income from EIC, ENY and Erie Insurance Property & Casualty Company which were sold to the Exchange on December 31, 2010.

  • Net realized gains on investments totaled $6 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to losses of $3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2010.  The realized losses generated in the second quarter of 2010 were primarily due to decreases in the valuation on the common stock portfolio.

  • Equity in earnings of limited partnerships increased $1 million in the second quarter of 2011 driven by improved performance in the real estate and private equity sectors compared to the second quarter of 2010.

Six-Month 2011 Results

Net income attributable to Indemnity per share-diluted increased to $1.72 per share for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from net income per share-diluted of $1.68 per share for the six months ended June 30, 2010.  The net income for 2011 and 2010 includes $0.02 and $0.21 per share, respectively, related to operations sold to the Exchange.

Operating income attributable to Indemnity per share-diluted (excluding net realized gains or losses, impairments on investments and related taxes) was $1.64 per share in the first half of 2011 compared to $1.66 in the first half of 2010.  The 2011 and 2010 operating income amounts include $0.02 and $0.18 per share, respectively, related to operations sold to the Exchange.

Share Repurchase Program

In the second quarter of 2011, we repurchased 0.8 million shares of our outstanding Class A nonvoting common stock at a total cost of $54 million in conjunction with our current stock repurchase plan.  For the year through July 22, 2011, shares repurchased under this program totaled 1.4 million at a total cost of $95 million.  In December 2010, our Board of Directors approved a continuation of the current stock repurchase program for a total of $150 million.  As of July 22, 2011, we had approximately $51 million in repurchase authority remaining under the program.

  • factors affecting price competition;
  • government regulation of the insurance industry, including approval of rate increases and rating factors such as credit and prior experience, and required processes related to underwriting and claims handling;
  • the uncertain role of the Federal Government, and the ongoing role of the States, in regulating the property/casualty or life insurance industries;
  • premium rates and reserves must be established from forecasts of ultimate costs;
  • emerging claims, coverage issues in the industry, and changes in reserve estimates related to the property and casualty business;

(1)  Earnings on life insurance related invested assets are integral to the evaluation of the life insurance operations because of the long duration of life products. On that basis, for presentation purposes, the life insurance operations in the table above include life insurance related investment results.


(2)  Prior to and through December 31, 2010, the underwriting results retained by EIC and ENY and the investment results of EIC, ENY and EPC accrued to the Indemnity shareholder interest.  Due to the sale of Indemnity’s property and casualty subsidiaries to the Exchange on December 31, 2010, all property and casualty underwriting results and all investment results for these companies accrue to the interest of the subscribers (policyholders) of the Exchange, or noncontrolling interest, after December 31, 2010.


(3)  Prior to and through March 31, 2011, Indemnity retained a 21.6% ownership interest in EFL, which accrued to the Indemnity shareholder interest, and the Exchange retained a 78.4% ownership interest in EFL, which accrued to the interest of the subscribers (policyholders) of the Exchange, or noncontrolling interest.  Due to the sale of Indemnity's 21.6% ownership interest in EFL to the Exchange on March 31, 2011, 100% of the life insurance results of EFL will accrue to the interest of the subscribers (policyholders) of the Exchange, or noncontrolling interest, after March 31, 2011.

(1)  Earnings on life insurance related invested assets are integral to the evaluation of the life insurance operations because of the long duration of life products. On that basis, for presentation purposes, the life insurance operations in the table above include life insurance related investment results.


(2)  Prior to and through December 31, 2010, the underwriting results retained by EIC and ENY and the investment results of EIC, ENY and EPC accrued to the Indemnity shareholder interest.  Due to the sale of Indemnity’s property and casualty subsidiaries to the Exchange on December 31, 2010, all property and casualty underwriting results and all investment results for these companies accrue to the interest of the subscribers (policyholders) of the Exchange, or noncontrolling interest, after December 31, 2010.


(3)  Prior to and through March 31, 2011, Indemnity retained a 21.6% ownership interest in EFL, which accrued to the Indemnity shareholder interest, and the Exchange retained a 78.4% ownership interest in EFL, which accrued to the interest of the subscribers (policyholders) of the Exchange, or noncontrolling interest.  Due to the sale of Indemnity's 21.6% ownership interest in EFL to the Exchange on March 31, 2011, 100% of the life insurance results of EFL will accrue to the interest of the subscribers (policyholders) of the Exchange, or noncontrolling interest, after March 31, 2011.

Reconciliation of Operating Income to Net Income (unaudited)




Reconciliation of operating income to net income


We believe that an investor's understanding of our performance related to the Indemnity shareholder interest is enhanced by the disclosure of operating income, a non-GAAP financial measure.  Our method of calculating this measure may differ from those used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.


Indemnity defines operating income as income generated from management operations, life insurance operations (1), property and casualty insurance underwriting operations (2), net investment income (2), and equity in earnings or losses of limited partnerships, net of related federal income taxes.  It does not include realized capital gains and losses, impairment losses and related federal income taxes.


Indemnity uses operating income to evaluate the results of its operations.  It reveals trends that may be obscured by the net effects of realized capital gains and losses including impairment losses.  Realized capital gains and losses including impairment losses, may vary significantly between periods and are generally driven by business decisions and economic developments such as capital market conditions which are not related to our ongoing operations.  We believe it is useful for investors to evaluate these components separately and in the aggregate when reviewing our performance.  We are aware that the price to earnings multiple commonly used by investors as a forward-looking valuation technique uses operating income as the denominator. Operating income should not be considered as a substitute for net income prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and does not reflect Indemnity's overall profitability.



The following table reconciles operating income and net income for the Indemnity shareholder interest: (1) (2)
