  • Adjusted income from operations1 for the third quarter was $1.9 billion, or $6.04 per share

BLOOMFIELD, Conn., Nov. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global health services company Cigna Corporation (NYSE: CI) today reported strong third quarter 2022 results reflecting growth in both Evernorth and Cigna Healthcare.

"We built on our momentum from the first half of 2022 with strong execution in the third quarter across our businesses and a continued focus on serving customers and clients with our differentiated health and well-being solutions," said David M. Cordani, chairman and chief executive officer. "We're leveraging capabilities across Evernorth and Cigna Healthcare as we innovate to further improve affordability, guide patients to the most effective treatments and improve the vitality of the customers we serve."

Total revenues for third quarter 2022 were $45.3 billion. Adjusted revenues3 were $45.4 billion and reflect strong performance led by Evernorth.  

Shareholders' net income for third quarter 2022 was $2.8 billion, or $8.97 per share, including an after-tax special item gain of $1.4 billion, or $4.52 per share, from the Chubb transaction4, and compares with $1.6 billion, or $4.80 per share, for third quarter 2021.

Cigna's adjusted income from operations1 for third quarter 2022 was $1.9 billion, or $6.04 per share, compared with $1.9 billion, or $5.73 per share, for third quarter 2021, reflecting growth in Evernorth and Cigna Healthcare offsetting the absence of income from divested businesses4,5. The proceeds from the Chubb transaction4 were primarily used for share repurchase in 2022.

Reconciliations of total revenues to adjusted revenues3 and of shareholders' net income to adjusted income from operations1 are provided on the following page and on Exhibit 1 of this earnings release.

  • Third quarter 2022 adjusted revenues3,10 grew 2% over third quarter 2021, excluding the divested Medicaid business5,6. This reflects increased specialty contributions, premium increases to cover underlying cost trends and U.S. Commercial customer growth, partially offset by lower net investment income and lower U.S. Government medical customers.
  • Third quarter 2022 adjusted income from operations, pre-tax1 and adjusted margin, pre-tax9 increased relative to third quarter 2021, reflecting a lower MCR7 offset by lower net investment income.
  • The Cigna Healthcare MCR7 of 80.8% for third quarter 2022 compares to 83.5% for third quarter 2021, reflecting lower medical costs primarily due to decreased direct COVID-19 costs. 2022 has also benefited from effective execution in pricing and affordability initiatives in our U.S. Commercial business.
  • Cigna Healthcare net medical costs payable11 was $4.05 billion at September 30, 2022, $4.05 billion at September 30, 2021, and $4.00 billion at December 31, 2021. Favorable prior year reserve development on a gross pre-tax basis was $278 million and $217 million through third quarter 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Notes:




1.

Adjusted income (loss) from operations is a principal financial measure of profitability used by Cigna's management because it presents the underlying results of operations of Cigna's businesses and permits analysis of trends in underlying revenue, expenses and shareholders' net income. Adjusted income from operations is defined as shareholders' net income (or income before income taxes less pre-tax income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests for the segment metric) excluding net realized investment results, amortization of acquired intangible assets and special items. Cigna's share of certain realized investment results of its joint ventures reported in the Cigna Healthcare segment using the equity method of accounting are also excluded. Special items are matters that management believes are not representative of the underlying results of operations due to their nature or size. Adjusted income (loss) from operations is measured on an after-tax basis for consolidated results and on a pre-tax basis for segment results. Consolidated adjusted income (loss) from operations is not determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measure, shareholders' net income. See Exhibit 1 for a reconciliation of consolidated adjusted income from operations to shareholders' net income.



2.

Management is not able to provide a reconciliation of adjusted income from operations to shareholders' net income (loss) or adjusted revenues to total revenues on a forward-looking basis because it is unable to predict, without unreasonable effort, certain components thereof including (i) future net realized investment results (from equity method investments with respect to adjusted revenues) and (ii) future special items. These items are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, many of which are beyond Cigna's control. As such, any associated estimate and its impact on shareholders' net income and total revenues could vary materially.




The Company's outlook excludes the potential effects of any other business combinations that may occur after the date of this earnings release. The Company's outlook includes the potential effects of expected future share repurchases and anticipated 2022 dividends.




As announced in January 2021, Cigna currently intends to pay regular quarterly dividends, with future declarations subject to approval by its Board of Directors and the Board's determination that the declaration of dividends remains in the best interests of Cigna and its shareholders. The decision of whether to pay future dividends and the amount of any such dividends will be based on the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows, capital requirements, the requirements of applicable law and any other factors the Board of Directors may deem relevant.




The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and alternate uses of capital. The share repurchase program may be effected through open market purchases in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, or privately negotiated transactions. The program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.



3.

Adjusted revenues is used by Cigna's management because it permits analysis of trends in underlying revenue. The Company defines adjusted revenues as total revenues excluding the following adjustments: special items and Cigna's share of certain realized investment results of its joint ventures reported in the Cigna Healthcare segment using the equity method of accounting. Special items are matters that management believes are not representative of the underlying results of operations due to their nature or size. We exclude these items from this measure because management believes they are not indicative of past or future underlying performance of the business. Adjusted revenues is not determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measure, total revenues. See Exhibit 1 for a reconciliation of consolidated adjusted revenues to total revenues.



4.

On July 1, 2022, the Company completed the sale of its life, accident and supplemental benefits businesses in six countries (Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand) to Chubb INA Holdings, Inc. ("Chubb") for approximately $5.4 billion in cash (the "Chubb transaction"); as previously agreed, we excluded our interest in a joint venture in Türkiye from the Chubb transaction.




During the fourth quarter of 2021, in connection with the Chubb transaction, we revised our business reporting structure and adjusted our segment reporting accordingly. Segment results for the three and nine months ended September, 2021 have been restated to conform to the new segment presentation. See Cigna's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 24, 2022 for additional information.



5.

On January 1, 2022 the Company completed the sale of its Texas Medicaid contracts to Molina Healthcare, Inc.



6.

The divested international4 and Medicaid5 businesses had adjusted income from operations1 of $4 million and $139 million in third quarter 2022 and third quarter 2021 respectively. Consolidated adjusted income from operations1 in third quarter 2022 and third quarter 2021 excluding the adjusted income from operations1 of the divested international4 and Medicaid5 businesses was $1,854 million and $1,797 million respectively.

Operating ratios are defined as follows:



The Cigna Healthcare medical care ratio ("MCR") represents medical costs as a percentage of premiums for all U.S. Commercial risk products, including medical, pharmacy, dental, stop loss and behavioral products provided through guaranteed cost or experience-rated funding arrangements, as well as Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D, Medicare Supplement, individual on and off-exchange products, and health care products within our International Health business, within the Cigna Healthcare segment.  



Adjusted SG&A expense ratio for third quarter 2022 represents enterprise selling, general and administrative expenses of $3,148 million excluding special items of $24 million as a percentage of adjusted revenue at a consolidated level. Adjusted SG&A expense ratio for the third quarter 2021 represents enterprise selling, general and administrative expenses of $3,093 million excluding special items of $13 million as a percentage of adjusted revenue at a consolidated level.





8.

Customer relationships are defined as follows:



Total medical customers includes individuals in the Cigna Healthcare segment who meet any one of the following criteria: are covered under a medical insurance policy, managed care arrangement, or service agreement issued by Cigna; have access to Cigna's provider network for covered services under their medical plan; or have medical claims and services that are administered by Cigna.



Prior year lives include the Medicaid customers which were divested on January 1, 2022.



International Health medical customers excludes medical customers served by less than 100% owned subsidiaries and customers that are part of the businesses sold pursuant to the divestiture of the international life, accident, and supplemental benefits businesses4. Prior year lives have been restated to conform to this presentation.



Policies issued by the sold international life, accident, and supplemental benefits businesses4 and our joint venture in Türkiye have been excluded from customer relationships.





9.

Adjusted margin, pre-tax, is calculated by dividing adjusted income (loss) from operations, pre-tax by adjusted revenues for each segment.





10.

Cigna owns a 50% noncontrolling interest in its China joint venture. As such, the adjusted revenues for the Cigna Healthcare segment only include Cigna's 50% share of the joint venture's earnings reported in Fees and Other Revenues using the equity method of accounting under GAAP.



11.

Medical costs payable within the Cigna Healthcare segment are presented net of reinsurance and other recoverables. The gross medical costs payable balance was $4.25 billion as of September 30, 2022, $4.26 billion as of December 31, 2021, and $4.33 billion as of September 30, 2021



12.

The measure "adjusted tax rate" is not determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measure, "consolidated effective tax rate". We define adjusted tax rate as the consolidated income tax rate applicable to the Company's pre-tax income excluding pre-tax income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, net realized investment results, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and special items. Cigna's share of certain realized investment results of its joint ventures reported in the Cigna Healthcare segment using the equity method of accounting are also excluded. Management is not able to provide a reconciliation to the consolidated effective tax rate on a forward-looking basis because we are unable to predict, without unreasonable effort, certain components thereof include (i) future net realized investment results and (ii) future special items.
