Metromile Announces First Quarter 2022 Results SAN FRANCISCO, May 10, 2022 -- Metromile, Inc. (NASDAQ: MILE, MILEW), a leading digital insurance platform and pay-per-mile auto insurer, today announced its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. “We were very pleased to cross the 100,000 Policies in Force milestone during the first quarter of 2022 and achieve a Run-Rate Premium of $116 million,” said Dan Preston, Chief Executive Officer of Metromile. “Loss ratios remained elevated during the quarter as industry- wide inflation in costs for bodily injury and physical damage claims persisted, but we continue to believe our rate filings will begin to counter these losses and improve our profitability this year. In addition, we remain on pace to close our transaction with Lemonade, pending regulatory approval, by the end of the second quarter. We are excited to join Lemonade and bring our customized and fairer insurance to millions of more drivers.” Q1 2022 Results, KPIs and Non-GAAP Financial Measures Policies in Force • Policies in Force as of March 31, 2022 were 101,294, a 6% increase compared to 95,958 at the end of the first quarter of 2021. Premium • Direct Earned Premium in the first quarter of 2022 was $28.1 million, an 8.9% increase from the prior-year period. Direct earned premium excludes the impact of premiums ceded to reinsurers. • Average Annual Premium per Policy, defined as Direct Earned Premium divided by the Average Policies in Force for the period, was $1,142 as of March 31, 2022, a 3.9% increase compared to $1,100 on March 31, 2021, due to more miles driven on a year- over-year basis. • Premium Run-Rate, defined as ending Policies in Force multiplied by Average Annual Premium per Policy, was $116 million as of March 31, 2022, a 9.6% increase compared to $106 million on March 31, 2021. Retention • As of March 31, 2022, one-year new customer retention was 56% for policies that completed their second term in the first quarter of 2022. We define one-year new customer retention as the percentage of new customers who remain with us after their first two policy terms, inclusive of all cancellation reasons.
GAAP Gross Margin • First quarter of 2022 GAAP Gross Margin was (48.4)%, compared to (12.0)% in the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to higher direct losses and LAE as a result of increasing claims cost reflecting inflationary trends, along with higher frequency, and severity in the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the first quarter of 2021. Accident Quarter Loss Ratio and Contribution Loss/Margin • Our Accident Quarter Loss Ratio was 85.1% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 65.1% in the prior-year period, resulting from an increase in claims severity observed industry-wide and bodily injury frequency; partially offset by the higher earned premium from our per-mile pricing model. • Our Accident Quarter Loss Adjustment Expense Ratio was 18.3% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 11.5% for the prior-year period. • Servicing Expenses in the first quarter of 2022 were $3.9 million, or 14.0% of Direct Earned Premium, compared to $4.1 million, or 15.8% of Direct Earned Premium, in the prior-year period. The lower Servicing Expenses as a percentage of Direct Earned Premium was primarily due to reduced bad debt expenses offset. • Accident Quarter Contribution Loss in the first quarter of 2022 was $(4.5) million, compared to Accident Quarter Contribution Profit of $2.4 million in the prior-year period. Accident Quarter Contribution Margin was (16.1)%, compared to 9.1% in the first quarter of 2021. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the results of prior period development on loss and loss adjustment expenses. • We had $0.1 million of favorable prior period loss development in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $4.3 million of unfavorable prior period loss development in the first quarter of 2021. • Contribution Loss in the first quarter of 2022 was $4.4 million, compared to Contribution Loss of $1.9 million in the prior-year period. Enterprise Software Revenue • Total enterprise software revenue was $1.2 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $1.0 million in the prior-year period. • Our primary KPI for Metromile Enterprise is recurring software revenue, and we ended the first quarter of 2022 with $4.2 million of booked annual recurring software revenue.
Operating Expense (R&D, G&A and Enterprise Costs) • Total operating expense, which excludes loss, loss adjustment expenses, marketing and sales, and variable costs associated with servicing policies, was $23.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, which includes $0.3 million of transaction-related expense, compared to $12.5 million in the prior-year period, driven primarily by increased staffing to support our growth initiatives and higher stock-based compensation expense. Acquisition Expense • Total marketing, sales, underwriting, and device costs were $8.2 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $8.5 million in the prior-year period. Reinsurance • Effective January 1, 2022, we entered into a new reinsurance quota share arrangement with Swiss Reinsurance America Corporation and Mapfre RE, Compania de Reaseguros S. A., ceding 30% of gross written premium through June 30, 2023. Available Liquidity • The Company's cash, cash equivalents, and highly liquid money market investments totaled $93.3 million as of March 31, 2022, including $2.4 million within the Metromile Enterprise entity. Conference Call Due to the pending transaction with Lemonade announced on November 8, 2021, the Company will not host a conference call in conjunction with its first quarter 2022 earnings release.
