Sanlam FY19
SANLAM FY19

Net earned premium +5.1% to Sh5.6bn

Total income +50% to Sh8.9bn, mainly on FV losses reducing from -Sh1.9bn to a gain of Sh422m.

FY18 v. FY19

Claims ratio 95% v. 86%

Expense ratio 54% v. 62%

Combined ratio 150% v. 148%

While PBT improved to Sh550m from a loss of Sh2bn, the tax rate was a whopping 79% with no explanation given. As a result, EPS was just Sh0.79 from a whopping -Sh14.01 in FY18.

Total assets remained largely flat at Sh29bn. Book value is Sh12 & share likely to trade BELOW THAT.
Cash resources at the end of the period collapsed by 55% to Sh1.195bn due to loan repayments & increased investing activities.

Despite loan repayments of Sh1bn, total liabilities decreased by slightly above Sh200m, which is pretty insignificant.

investment income- kshs 2,350,289,000.
Net claims and policy holders benefits- kshs 4,836,423,000


If they work hard at increasing their investment income,they will make enough to clear claims and policy holders benefits hence increase their net profit.

I guess their aggressiveness in investment must have been slowed down by CP and CB that burned them over the last 3 years. So the MD during the results briefing/presentation say that they are taking a cautious approach to investment as they review their policy on investment and risk management. They will recover going forward - next results will be hugely improved.

Ati struggling real estate? They sold to prop up their numbers, otherwise they would have reported losses of over 300m.

Unless the "profit" on the property was 300mn+, it would have done little to help them.

Sale Price - Cost + Depreciation - any prior "FV Gains" - Costs to sell = Profit in the current year

Isn't real estate, especially office space, suffering?

If the building in question is Sanlam House, then the residual value of the building is nominal and almost all the proceeds were capital gain.
