Profit before taxes for P&C insurance for the first nine months of 2010 increased to EUR 519 million (476).

In Industrial business area combined ratio rose to 92.4 per cent (90.9) due to an increase in large claims costs. Risk ratio deteriorated 1.7 percentage points to 73.9 per cent.

The following text is based on Nordea's January - September 2010 interim report published on 27 October 2010.

Nordea's total income reached a record high as it increased 9 per cent from the previous quarter and 4 per cent compared to the third quarter last year. The development in the customer business remained strong. Lending volumes increased by 4 per cent and deposit volumes by 3 per cent from the previous quarter, margins were largely stable in the quarter and market shares increased, mainly within household.

The fair value result in the Nordea Group increased from the low level in the second quarter.

In local currencies and excluding costs related to Group initiatives, total expenses were down 2 per cent in the third quarter.

The loan loss ratio was down by approx. 6 basis points compared to the previous quarter and was 29 basis points including and 22 basis points excluding the Danish guarantee scheme provisions.

Operating profit was up 32 per cent from the previous quarter, mainly due to higher net interest income and net result from items at fair value. Risk-adjusted profit increased 37 per cent compared to the previous quarter.

The inflow of new Gold and Private Banking customers remained strong, increasing by more than 15,000 per month. Around 60 per cent of the new Gold and Private Banking customers were new customers to Nordea.

Including transition rules, the core tier 1 capital ratio was 9.1 per cent (9.0 per cent).

Management incentive schemes

On 8 June 2010 Sampo's Board approved a Compensation Code which applies to all Group companies. The Boards of these companies have adopted company-level policies based on the Code. The Code lays down the principles for e.g. management incentives and can be viewed at www.sampo.com/compensation.

The management incentive schemes of Sampo Group are of two types; long-term management incentive schemes based on share appreciation rights and one share-based incentive scheme. The outcome of the long-term management incentive schemes is determined by Sampo's share price development over a period of approximately three years starting from the issue of the respective program. The programs are subject to thresholds on share price development and company profitability, as well as ceilings for maximum bonuses. Furthermore, the programs are subject to rules requiring part of the paid bonus to be used to acquire Sampo shares, which must in turn be held for a specified period of time.

In 2006, Sampo's Annual General Meeting decided on a share-based incentive scheme for the Executive Management belonging to the Group Executive Committee. Under the program, the participants are granted the right to receive up to a pre-determined number of Sampo shares, if Sampo's share price has outperformed a predefined threshold value and insurance margin targets have been exceeded. The bonus will be paid in Sampo shares, in cash or a combination thereof. Furthermore, the programs are subject to lock-up on Sampo shares received.

Payments based on the long-term management incentive schemes in January - September 2010 amounted to EUR 10 million (0). No payments were made on the basis of the share-based incentive scheme 2006 (0).

The terms of all incentive schemes are available on Sampo's web pages at www.sampo.com/compensation.

 

Shares and share capital

On 8 June 2010 the Sampo Board decided to cancel the 90,000 Sampo A shares purchased in late 2009 according to the authorization by the Annual General Meeting. The shares were purchased at an average price of EUR 16.53 per share and the total amount paid for the shares was EUR 1.5 million. The cancellation reduced the number of Sampo A shares with the corresponding amount but had no effect on the share capital.

As at 30 September 2010 the number of Sampo plc's A shares totaled 560,082,390. Total number of shares of the company, including 1,200,000 B shares, is 561,282,390 shares. Sampo plc did not hold its own A shares on 30 September 2010. The other Group companies hold no shares in the parent company either.

The Annual General Meeting of 2010 authorised the Board to acquire in one or several lots a maximum of 50,000,000 Sampo A shares. Shares can be repurchased in other proportion than the shareholders' proportional shareholdings (private repurchase). The share price will be no higher than the highest price paid for Sampo shares in public trading at the time of purchase. The authorisation will be valid until the close of the next Annual General Meeting, nevertheless not more than 18 months after AGM's decision. The authorisation has not been used.

 

Internal dividends

During the third quarter of 2010 no dividends were paid by the subsidiaries to the parent company Sampo plc.

Sampo plc has received a dividend of EUR 103 million (SEK 1,000 million) from If P&C Insurance Holding Ltd on 13 April 2010 and, in addition, the associated company Nordea Bank AB paid on 8 April 2010 a dividend amounting to EUR 204 million.

Group solvency

Sampo Group, with Nordea Bank AB (publ) as its associated company, is regarded as a financial and insurance conglomerate according to the Act on the Supervision of Financial and Insurance Conglomerates (2004/699).

Group solvency has been calculated according to Chapter 3 of the Act on the Supervision of Financial and Insurance Conglomerates (2004/699). The Act is based on Directive 2002/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the supplementary supervision of credit institutions, insurance undertakings and investment.

Group solvency 2,930 2,315
Group solvency ratio    
(Own funds  per cent of minimum requirements) 167.0 158.3

The Group's solvency ratio (own funds in relation to minimum requirements for own funds) was 167.0 per cent (158.3) as at 30 September 2010. Nordea is treated as an associated company in the solvency calculation and the part of Nordea's capital requirement corresponding to Sampo's holding in Nordea is taken into account in the Group's capital requirement.

In Sampo Group solvency is assessed internally by comparing the capital required to the capital available. Capital requirement assessment is based on an economic capital framework, in which Group companies quantify the amount of capital required for measurable risks over a one year time horizon at 99.5 per cent´s confidence level. In addition to economic capital companies are assessing their capital need related to non-measurable risks like risks in business environment.

Capital available or Adjusted Solvency Capital include regulatory capital and in addition other loss absorbing items like the effect of discounting technical reserves and other reserves excluded from regulatory capital.    

The economic capital tied up in Group's operations on 30 September 2010 was EUR 4,189 million (3,783) and adjusted solvency capital was EUR 7,279 million (7,077).

 

EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE REPORTING PERIOD

On 13 October 2010, Sampo plc received a disclosure according to which Capital Research and Management Company's holding in Sampo plc had on 11 October 2010 fallen below one twentieth (1/20) of Sampo plc's entire stock and voting rights. According to the notification Capital Research held 4.95 per cent of Sampo's total share capital and 4.91 per cent of related votes.

 

OUTLOOK FOR THE REST OF 2010

Global economic recovery continues broadly as expected. In the Nordic countries economic activity has rebounded faster than anticipated despite sovereign debt problems causing uncertainty. Volatility in the capital markets will persist with quickly changing investor sentiments.

Sampo Group is expected to report a good result for 2010 with a continuing good profitability of its insurance operations supported by the share of Nordea's profit.

If P&C is expected to reach its long-term combined ratio target of below 95 per cent in 2010 and achieve a combined ratio between 92 and 94 per cent. Profit is expected to remain on a very good level.

Mandatum Life's marked-to-market profit is highly dependent on capital markets and is expected to remain good. Reported profit is foreseen to reach year 2009 level. The company seeks further growth in the unit-linked volumes.

The profit contribution of the associated company, Nordea Bank AB, is expected to remain significant.

¹)  The Group solvency is calculated according to the consolidation method defined in Chapter 3 of the Act on the Supervision of Financial and Insurance Conglomerates (2004/699). In the comparison year the solvency was calculated based on adjusted solvency calculations for insurance groups according to the Decree of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (1106/2000), determined on the basis of the Group financial statements. Nordea Bank has been consolidated as an associate as of 31 Dec. 2009, so the capital demand required by this investment did not burden the Group's solvency on 30 Sep. 2009.

²) The key figures for P&C Insurance are based on activity based costs and cannot, therefore, be calculated directly from the consolidated income statement. The result analysis of P&C insurance is presented in note 13.

In calculating the per share key figures, the number of shares used at the balance sheet date and as the average number of shares was 561,282,390.

The valuation differences on investment property have been taken into account in calculating the return on assets, return on equity, equity/assets ratio and net asset value per share. The tax component includes the tax corresponding to the result for the period, and the deferred tax liability related to valuation differences on investment property.

The total comprehensive income has been used in the calculation of the return on assets and return on equity.

The key figures for the insurance business have been calculated in accordance with the decree issued by the Ministry of Finance and the specifying regulations and instructions of the Finance Supervisory Authority (former Insurance Supervisory Authority).

NOTES

ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Sampo Group's consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) adopted by the EU. The interim financial statements are presented in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. In preparing the interim financial statements, the same accounting policies and methods of computation are applied as in the financial statements for 2009.

Sampo adopted various new or revised standards and interpretations at the beginning of the year 2010. These standards and interpretations are explained in Sampos accounting policies for the financial year 2009. The financial statements are available on Sampo's website at www.sampo.com/result.

The most significant of the adopted standards is the revised IFRS 3 Business combinations. The standard includes various significant changes regarding the accounting treatment of business combinations by allowing the company to measure the non-controlling interest at fair value instead of the proportionate interest in the acquiree's net assets. The choice affects the amounts of recognised goodwill and non-controlling interest.
