For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, the tax expenses (benefits) related to the table above were $(59) million and $(76) million, respectively, for Chubb one-time integration and merger-related expenses; $(44) million and $(53) million, respectively, for amortization of fair value adjustment of acquired invested assets and long-term debt; $17 million and $(5) million, respectively, for adjusted net realized gains and losses; and $414 million and $413 million, respectively, for operating income.

Evan G. Greenberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Chubb Limited, commented: "Chubb's strong earnings this quarter were driven by world-class underwriting results and record investment income.  After-tax operating income per share increased 11%, with operating earnings up 13% year-to-date.  We had good book and tangible book value per share growth in the quarter of 2.7% and 4.3%, respectively, and produced an operating ROE of circa 10%.

"Our 88% P&C combined ratio, more than two points better than prior year, was truly distinguishing given soft market conditions that have continued for a number of years now.  We benefited from a substantial improvement in both our expense ratio and our loss ratio as a result of merger-related efficiencies and underwriting actions as well as lower catastrophe losses.  Total P&C underwriting income was up 20%.

"Although the commercial P&C market is soft around the globe, the trend for pricing improved for the business we wrote with rates flat or the rate of decline substantially slowing in most classes, while in some particularly stressed areas we achieved rate.  Our premium revenue growth continued to trend better, as we projected, and was our best since the merger.  We wrote less new business in line with our underwriting discipline while renewal retentions were steady. 

"Overall, we are in excellent shape with our integration-related efficiency efforts and are now increasing the total annualized run-rate savings we will achieve by the end of 2018 to $875 million, up from $800 million."

  • Merger-related underwriting actions and the purchase of additional reinsurance adversely impacted P&C net premiums written growth by $198 million, or 2.8 percentage points in constant dollars.
  • Net premiums earned decreased 2.3%. Excluding merger-related underwriting actions, P&C net premiums earned were virtually flat with prior year.
  • The P&C current accident year combined ratio excluding catastrophe losses was 87.5%, compared with 88.9% last year on an "As If" basis. The year-over-year decline of 1.4 percentage points reflects a favorable impact of 2.7 percentage points comprised of integration-related savings, post-retirement benefit savings, a favorable release of unallocated claims handling expense reserves and merger-related underwriting actions. The 2.7 percentage point benefit reduced the expense ratio by 1.7 percentage points and the loss and loss expense ratio by 1.0 percentage point. Partially offsetting this decline is an increase in the underlying loss and loss expense ratio of 1.2 percentage points, resulting in a flat loss and loss expense ratio compared with prior year.
  • Incremental realized integration-related savings in the quarter impacting the P&C segments were $104 million, which reduced administrative expenses by $67 million, policy acquisition costs by $11 million and losses and loss expenses by $26 million.
  • Total pre-tax and after-tax catastrophe losses for the quarter were $200 million (3.0 percentage points of the combined ratio) and $152 million, respectively, compared with $390 million (5.7 percentage points of the combined ratio) and $311 million, respectively, last year.
  • Total pre-tax and after-tax favorable prior period development for the quarter were $170 million (2.5 percentage points of the combined ratio) and $144 million, respectively, compared with $301 million (4.4 percentage points of the combined ratio) and $241 million, respectively, last year.
  • Adjusted net investment income, which excludes a purchase accounting adjustment of $85 million, was a record $855 million. Adjusted net investment income for the quarter exceeded prior guidance due to higher private equity distributions and increased call activity in the company's corporate bond portfolio.
  • Operating cash flow was $627 million.
  • Share repurchases totaled $335 million, or approximately 2.4 million shares, during the quarter. The company has repurchased approximately 3.4 million shares for $475 million through June 30, 2017.
  • Net loss reserves increased $226 million in the quarter.

All comparisons are with the same period last year unless otherwise specifically stated.

Regulation G - Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In presenting our results, we included and discussed certain non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures, which may be defined differently by other companies, are important for an understanding of our overall results of operations and financial condition. However, they should not be viewed as a substitute for measures determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Throughout this document there are various measures presented on a constant-dollar basis (i.e., excludes the impact of foreign exchange). We believe it is useful to evaluate the trends in our results exclusive of the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the currencies in which our international business is transacted, as these exchange rates could fluctuate significantly between periods and distort the analysis of trends. The impact is determined by assuming constant foreign exchange rates between periods by translating prior period results using the same local currency exchange rates as the comparable current period.

2016 "As If" company measures presented throughout this section are prepared exclusive of the impact of the unearned premium reserves intangible amortization and the elimination of the historical policy acquisition costs as a result of purchase accounting in order to present the underlying profitability of our insurance business.

Adjusted net investment income is net investment income excluding the amortization of the fair value adjustment on acquired invested assets. We believe this measure is meaningful as it highlights the underlying performance of our invested assets and portfolio management in support of our lines of business.

Adjusted net realized gains (losses), net of tax includes net realized gains (losses) and net realized gains (losses) recorded in other income (expense) related to unconsolidated subsidiaries, and excludes realized gains and losses on crop derivatives. These derivatives were purchased to provide economic benefit, in a manner similar to reinsurance protection, in the event that a significant decline in commodity pricing impacts underwriting results. We view gains and losses on these derivatives as part of the results of our underwriting operations, and therefore realized gains (losses) from these derivatives are reclassified to adjusted losses and loss expenses. The P&C combined ratio includes adjusted losses and loss expenses in the ratio numerator.

Underwriting income, P&C underwriting income and Global P&C underwriting income are calculated by subtracting losses and loss expenses, policy benefits, policy acquisition costs and administrative expenses from net premiums earned. P&C underwriting income also includes gains (losses) on crop derivatives. We use underwriting income and operating ratios to monitor the results of our operations without the impact of certain factors, including net investment income, other income (expense), interest and income tax expense and adjusted net realized gains (losses). Current accident year underwriting income excluding catastrophe losses is underwriting income adjusted to exclude catastrophe losses and prior period development (PPD). We believe it is useful to exclude catastrophe losses, as they are not predictable as to timing and amount, and PPD as these unexpected loss developments on historical reserves are not indicative of our current underwriting performance. We believe the use of these measures enhances the understanding of our results of operations by highlighting the underlying profitability of our insurance business.

Segment income (loss) includes underwriting income, adjusted net investment income, other income (expense) – operating, and amortization expense of purchased intangibles.

Operating income, net of tax, excludes adjusted realized gains and losses, Chubb integration and related expenses, and the amortization of the fair value adjustments of acquired debt and invested assets related to the Chubb Corp acquisition.  We believe this presentation enhances the understanding of our results of operations by highlighting the underlying profitability of our insurance business. We exclude adjusted net realized gains (losses) because the amount of these gains (losses) is heavily influenced by the availability of market opportunities. We also exclude Chubb integration and related expenses related to the acquisition due to the size, complexity, and volume of this acquisition, which may not be indicative of such future costs. We believe that excluding the Chubb integration and related expenses facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results. Operating income should not be viewed as a substitute for net income determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, we disclose operating income excluding the impact of foreign exchange in order to adjust for the distortive effects of fluctuations in exchange rates. References to operating income mean net of tax, whether or not noted.

P&C combined ratio is the sum of the loss and loss expense ratio, acquisition cost ratio and the administrative expense ratio excluding the life business and including the realized gains and loss on the crop derivatives.

Current accident year P&C combined ratio excluding catastrophe losses excludes the impact of catastrophe losses and PPD. We believe this measure provides a better evaluation of our underwriting performance and enhances the understanding of the trends in our property and casualty business that may be obscured by these items.

Global P&C performance metrics comprise consolidated operating results (including corporate) and exclude the operating results of the company's Life Insurance and North America Agricultural Insurance segments. We believe that these measures are useful and meaningful to investors as they are used by management to assess the company's global P&C operations which are the most economically similar. We exclude the North America Agricultural Insurance and Life Insurance segments because the results of these businesses do not always correlate with the results of our global P&C operations.

International life net premiums written and deposits collected includes deposits collected on universal life and investment contracts (life deposits). Life deposits are not reflected as revenues in our consolidated statements of operations in accordance with GAAP. However, we include life deposits in presenting growth in our life insurance business because new life deposits are an important component of production and key to our efforts to grow our business.

Operating return on equity (ROE) or ROE calculated using operating income are annualized financial measures. The ROE numerator includes income adjusted to exclude after-tax adjusted net realized gains (losses), Chubb integration and related expenses, and the amortization of the fair value adjustment of acquired invested assets and long-term debt. The ROE denominator includes the average shareholders' equity for the period adjusted to exclude unrealized gains (losses) on investments, net of tax. In addition, for 2016, the denominator was adjusted to account for the weighted-average impact of the $15,527 million issuance of common shares and equity awards related to the Chubb Corp acquisition on January 14, 2016. Operating ROE is a useful measure as it enhances the understanding of the return on shareholders' equity by highlighting the underlying profitability relative to shareholders' equity excluding the effect of unrealized gains and losses on our investments.

Net premiums written and net premiums earned excluding merger-related underwriting actions, including additional reinsurance are non-GAAP performance measures. Since the acquisition of The Chubb Corporation, we have entered into new reinsurance agreements with third-party reinsurers for the Chubb Corp businesses and have taken other merger-related underwriting actions, including exiting certain types of business that do not meet our underwriting standards or adhere to our risk diversification strategy. We believe that these measures are meaningful to evaluate trends in our underlying business on a comparable basis.

Tangible book value per common share is shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangible assets divided by the shares outstanding. The intangibles related to the Chubb Corp acquisition are excluded from the tangible book value per share calculation net of tax. We believe that goodwill and other intangible assets are not indicative of our underlying insurance results or trends and make book value comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies less meaningful. In addition, we disclose per share measures for book value and tangible book value that exclude the impact of foreign currency fluctuations in order to adjust for the distortive effects of fluctuations in exchange rates.

Other income (expense) – operating excludes from consolidated Other income (expense) the portion of net realized gains and losses related to unconsolidated entities and gains and losses from fair value changes in separate account assets that do not qualify for separate account reporting under GAAP. Net realized gains (losses) related to unconsolidated entities is excluded from operating income in order to enhance the understanding of our results of underwriting operations as they are heavily influenced by, and fluctuate in part according to, market conditions.

Chubb integration and related expenses include all internal and external costs directly related to the integration activities of the Chubb Corp acquisition, consisting primarily of personnel-related expenses, including severance and employee retention and relocation; consulting fees; and advisor fees. Chubb integration and related expenses also include interest expense related to the $5.3 billion senior notes issued in November 2015 in order to finance a portion of the Chubb Corp acquisition. We exclude this pre-acquisition interest expense from operating income because the operations for which the debt was issued were not part of our operating activities prior to the completion of the acquisition. Effective with the close of the Chubb Corp acquisition (January 14, 2016), the interest on this debt was considered a cost of our operations and is included within operating income.

See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures on pages 31-36 in the Financial Supplement. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for measures determined in accordance with GAAP or with SEC guidance under Article 11 for pro forma measures, including premium, net income, return on equity, adjusted net investment income, and effective tax rate.
