The MAPFRE Group’s first quarter results reveal a 2.6 percent growth in premiums to 6.114 million Euros and a 4.7 percent growth in pre-tax profits to 459 million. Shareholder’s equity and total assets have increased as well by 14.6 percent and 16.5 percent to 9.338 million Euros and 70.651 million Euros respectively. On the other hand, attributable results decreased by 8% to 201 million Euros. This primarily was caused by greater profit shares allotted for external partners in jointly operated businesses.
Final dividends of 0.08 Euros per share will be paid out on June 18. Total dividends of 431 million Euros account for a 7.7 percent increase as compared to the payout in 2013.
The Life business experienced challenges due to several factors including an unfavorable interest rate environment, changes in sales plans, and lower Savings insurance. Meanwhile, the Group’s Motor business grew 0.1 percent, and the Health business exhibited solid performance resulting in a 7 percent premium increase exceeding 455 million Euros.
The APAC region’s premiums grew by 36.6 percent resulting in 32 million Euros, 15 million Euros of which are premiums coming from MAPFRE Insular in the Philippines. MAPFRE Insular’s growth is mainly driven by the General insurance line.
