Element ListExplanation
Increase (Decrease) in Net Profit for Current Quarter Compared to the Same Quarter of the Previous Year is Attributed to The decrease in profits before Zakat and Income Tax for the quarter of SR 90,336K compared with same quarter the previous year was due to the following main reasons:

• Decrease in underwriting results of SR 58,501K compared with the same quarter previous year, a decrease of 13%. This was driven by the deferred acquisition costs expensed during the quarter which were related to the premium deficiency resulting from the expected surge in deferred claims post Covid-19 lockdown.

• Increase in the provision for doubtful receivables of SR 24,526K compared with the same quarter last year, an increase of 140.7%.

• Increase in other operating expenses of SR 16,365K compared with the same quarter last year, an increase of 7.9%.

• Decrease in investment and other income of SR 1,194K compared with the same quarter last year, a decrease of 1.85%.

These unfavorable movements were partially offset with an increase in net earned premiums by SR 338,610K in the current quarter compared with the same quarter last year, an increase of 14.3%, while net claims incurred increased by SR 319,807K compared with the same quarter last year, an increase of 17.2%.

Policyholders’ share of insurance operations’ surplus decreased to reach SR 15,324K in the current quarter versus SR 25,574K in the same quarter last year.

Gross Written Premiums (GWP) remained relatively flat at SR 3,076,175K in the current quarter compared with the same quarter previous year, reporting only a decrease of SR 268K.

Increase (Decrease) in Net Profit for Current Quarter Compared to the Previous Quarter is Attributed to The decrease in profits before Zakat and Income Tax for the quarter of SR 272,990K compared with previous quarter was due to the following main reasons:

• Decrease in underwriting results of SR 281,406K compared with the previous quarter, a decrease of 42.1%.

• Increase in the provision for doubtful receivables of SR 15,906K compared with the previous quarter, an increase of 61.1%.

• Increase in other operating expenses of SR 12,140K compared with the previous quarter, an increase of 5.7%.

These unfavorable movements were partially offset with a decrease in policyholders’ share of insurance operations’ surplus of SR 31,013K compared with the previous quarter, a decrease of 66.9%. Investment and other income also increased by SR 5,449K compared to the previous quarter, an increase of 9.4%.

Net earned premiums increased by SR 3,301K in the current quarter compared with the previous quarter, an increase of 0.1%, while net claims incurred increased by SR 380,150K compared with the previous quarter, an increase of 21.1%, primarily as a result of the surge in deferred claims incurred/expected post Covid-19 lockdown.

Gross Written Premiums (GWP) increased by SR 832,957K in the current quarter compared with the previous quarter, an increase of 37.1%.

Increase (Decrease) in Net Profit for Current Period Compared to the Same Period of the Previous Year is Attributed to The increase in profits before Zakat and Income Tax for the period of SR 168,181K compared with same period last year was due to the following main reasons:

• Increase in underwriting results of SR 224,414K compared with the same period last year, an increase of 20.0%. Net earned premiums increased by SR 1,225,432K in the current period compared with the same period last year, an increase of 17.9%, while net claims incurred increased by only SR 745,033K compared with the same period last year, an increase of 13.4%. This was due to the significant decline in demand for healthcare services during the Covid-19 lockdown period (March-June, 2020).

• Decrease in the provision for doubtful receivables of SR 44,047K compared to the same period last year, a decrease of 48.7%, primarily driven by the change in the method of calculating bad debt provisions in the current period, as recently mandated by SAMA to be more aligned with IFRS.

These favorable movements were partially offset with an increase in deferred acquisition costs expensed during the period reaching SR 421,722K compared with the same period last year, an increase of 154.5%, which was related to the Premium Deficiency Reserves (PDR) recognized during the current period to account for the expected surge in claims post Covid-19 lockdown.
