Total revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was $1.7 billion, an increase of 8 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018. Net income in the current quarter was $187.2 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, compared with net income of $151.5 million, or $1.34 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018. Net realized investment gains in the current quarter were $1.5 million, or 1 cent per diluted share, compared with net realized investment gains of $11.1 million, or 8 cents per diluted share, last year.

"The company delivered another good quarter, as increased transactions across our businesses drove strong growth in revenue and earnings," said Dennis J. Gilmore, chief executive officer at First American Financial Corporation. "In the purchase market, open order growth turned positive for the first time since early 2018, and our commercial business continued its strong performance. Lower interest rates drove substantial growth in our refinance business. Effective expense management and higher investment income, coupled with the broad-based revenue growth across key markets, propelled the company's strong financial performance this quarter.

"We are optimistic heading into the fourth quarter given current purchase and refinance order trends as well as a robust commercial pipeline. Although recent Fed funds rate reductions will impact our investment income, we expect that current business conditions and the efficiency of our operations will enable us to deliver strong financial results in the final quarter of 2019."

Total revenues for the Title Insurance and Services segment during the third quarter were $1.5 billion, up 9 percent compared with the same quarter of 2018. Direct premiums and escrow fees were higher by 14 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018, driven by a 21 percent increase in closed orders and partly offset by a 6 percent decrease in the average revenue per direct title order. The decline in the average revenue per direct title order to $2,513 was due to a shift in the mix of direct orders closed to lower-premium refinance transactions, partially offset by an increase in the average revenue per direct title order from commercial transactions and higher residential real estate values. Agent premiums, which are recorded on approximately a one-quarter lag relative to direct premiums, were up 7 percent in the current quarter as compared with last year.

Information and other revenues were $205.3 million this quarter, up $9.3 million, or 5 percent, compared with the third quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to growth in real estate transactions that led to higher demand for our title information products.

Investment income was $72.0 million in the third quarter, up $11.2 million, or 18 percent, benefiting from both an increase in average balances and higher short-term interest rates that led to an increase in interest income from the company's investment portfolio and cash balances. Net realized investment gains totaled $0.5 million in the current quarter, compared with gains of $9.1 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Personnel costs were $447.8 million in the third quarter, up $22.2 million, or 5 percent, compared with the same quarter of 2018. This increase was primarily attributable to higher incentive compensation expense driven by improved financial results.

Other operating expenses were $218.7 million in the third quarter, an increase of $17.8 million, or 9 percent, compared with the third quarter of 2018. The increase was largely attributable to higher production-related costs driven by growth in transaction activity, and to $7.0 million in lease impairments that were primarily due to consolidation of office locations related to a previous acquisition.

The provision for policy losses and other claims was $50.5 million in the third quarter, or 4.0 percent of title premiums and escrow fees, compared with a 4.0 percent loss provision rate in the third quarter of 2018. The current quarter rate reflects an ultimate loss rate of 4.0 percent for the current policy year and no change in the loss reserve estimates for prior policy years.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $29.8 million in the third quarter, down $0.2 million compared with the same period last year.

Pretax income for the Title Insurance and Services segment was $253.6 million in the third quarter, compared with $206.5 million in the third quarter of 2018. Pretax margin was 16.5 percent in the current quarter, compared with 14.6 percent last year. Excluding the impact of net realized investment gains, the pretax margin was 16.4 percent this year, compared with 14.1 percent last year.

Total revenues for the Specialty Insurance segment were $129.2 million in the third quarter, an increase of 4 percent compared with the third quarter of 2018. The home warranty business continued to grow revenues, while holding claims expense flat. The loss ratio in both our home warranty and property and casualty businesses declined, resulting in an improved loss ratio for the segment to 60.9 percent this quarter, compared with 65.4 percent in the prior year. Pretax margin for the segment was 8.5 percent in the current quarter, compared with 5.0 percent in the third quarter of last year. Excluding the impact of net realized investment gains, the segment's current quarter pretax margin was 7.8 percent, compared with 3.4 percent last year.
