=MBIA (MBI) reported earnings on Tue 7 Nov 017 (a/h)

MBIA misses by $1.00, misses on revs 
  • Reports Q3 (Sep) operating loss of $0.91 per share, $1.00 worse than the two analyst estimate of $0.09; revenues fell 83.7% year/year to $33 mln vs the $85.85 mln two analyst estimate. The adverse year-over-year comparison was primarily due to increased losses and loss adjustment expenses at National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation (National) that were primarily associated with Puerto Rico insured credits, and National's investment portfolio credit impairments that were primarily associated with uninsured Puerto Rico debt.
  • Book value per share was $13.88 as of September 30, 2017 compared with $23.87 as of Dec 31, 2016. The decrease in book value per share since year-end 2016 was mainly due to the full valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax asset that was established in the second quarter of 2017 and additional loss and loss adjustment expense reserves, partially offset by the reduction of shares outstanding resulting from the repurchase of 11.7 million MBIA common shares during the first nine months of 2017. Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company exhausted its $250 million share repurchase authorization that was approved in June 2017 by acquiring, through its subsidiary, National, an additional 31.3 million of MBIA Inc. common shares at an average price of $7.17 per share.  Adjusted Book Value (ABV) per share (a non-GAAP measure defined in the attached Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures) was $24.81 as of September 30, 2017 compared with $31.88 as of December 31, 2016
