Total revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $1.8 billion, down 29 percent compared with the third quarter of 2021. Net income in the current quarter was $2 million, or 2 cents per diluted share, compared with net income of $445 million, or $4.00 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021. Net investment losses in the current quarter were $226 million, or $1.60 per diluted share, compared with net investment gains of $276 million, or $1.85 per diluted share, in the third quarter of last year. The net investment losses in the current quarter were primarily due to unrealized losses in our venture portfolio compared with unrealized gains in the third quarter of last year primarily related to our venture portfolio. The tax rate this quarter was 174 percent, however, excluding $226 million in net investment losses the tax rate was 23.1 percent.

"The cyclical downturn in the real estate market precipitated by rapidly rising mortgage rates led to a decline in the company's residential business," said Ken DeGiorgio, chief executive officer at First American Financial Corporation. "Despite those conditions, First American's commercial business delivered another strong quarter and we benefited from robust growth in our investment income.

"While we expect the challenging market environment to continue into 2023, we believe the company is well positioned to emerge from this cycle even stronger. The market has shifted away from refinance toward purchase and commercial transactions where we are stronger and, consequently, we are growing our market share. We are also the only title company that has a bank, which enables us to better capitalize on higher interest rates. Our strong balance sheet allows us to continue to invest in strategic initiatives, pursue acquisitions, as well as return capital to shareholders. Since the beginning of this year, we have repurchased approximately 7 percent of our shares outstanding as of the end of last year.

"I want to thank our employees for all their hard work and accomplishments as we navigate our way through a difficult market. Relationships are key to our business, and it's our talented and dedicated people who provide the connection to our customers that ultimately drives our company's success."

Total revenues for the Title Insurance and Services segment during the third quarter were $1.9 billion, down 12 percent compared with the same quarter of 2021. Direct premiums and escrow fees declined 17 percent compared with the third quarter of 2021, driven by a 36 percent decline in the number of direct title orders closed that was partly offset by a 29 percent increase in the average revenue per direct title order closed. The average revenue per direct title order increased to $3,734, primarily attributable to a shift in the mix to higher premium commercial transactions from lower premium refinance transactions and the revenue benefit related to recent escrow company acquisitions. Agent premiums, which are recorded on approximately a one-quarter lag relative to direct premiums, declined 9 percent in the current quarter as compared with last year.

Information and other revenues were $279 million during the quarter, down $27 million, or 9 percent compared with the same quarter of last year. Excluding the impact of recent acquisitions, information and other revenues declined by $78 million, or 26 percent. This decline was the result of lower transaction levels across several business units driven by the decline in residential mortgage originations including the company's data and property information products, and post-close services.

Investment income was $105 million in the third quarter, up $56 million from the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily due to rising interest rates, which drove higher interest income from the company's investment portfolio, escrow balances and tax-deferred property exchange balances. Net investment losses totaled $67 million in the current quarter, compared with net investment losses of $2 million in the third quarter of 2021. Net investment losses this quarter were primarily due to losses on the sale of fixed-income securities in connection with the company's tax planning efforts.

Personnel costs were $554 million in the third quarter, down $9 million, or 2 percent, compared with the same quarter of 2021. Excluding the impact of recent acquisitions, personnel costs declined by $74 million due to lower incentive compensation, employee benefit and overtime costs. Severance expense was $6 million in the third quarter.

Other operating expenses were $284 million in the third quarter, a decrease of $12 million, or 4 percent, compared with the third quarter of 2021. Excluding the impact of recent acquisitions, other operating expenses declined by $36 million primarily attributable to lower production expense due to lower transaction volumes, partially offset by higher software expense.

The provision for policy losses and other claims was $61 million in the third quarter, or 4.0 percent of title premiums and escrow fees, in line with the 4.0 percent loss provision rate in the prior year. The current quarter rate reflects an ultimate loss rate of 4.0 percent for the current policy year with no change in the loss reserve estimates for prior policy years.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $40 million in the third quarter, up $3 million, or 8 percent, compared with the same period last year, due to higher amortization of software and other intangibles related to recent acquisitions.

Pretax income for the Title Insurance and Services segment was $186 million in the third quarter, compared with $351 million in the third quarter of 2021. Pretax margin was 9.9 percent in the current quarter, compared with 16.4 percent last year. Excluding the impact of net investment losses, the pretax margin was 13.0 percent this year, compared with 16.4 percent last year.

Total revenues for the Specialty Insurance segment were $105 million in the third quarter of 2022, a decline of 21 percent compared with the third quarter of 2021. The segment posted a pretax loss of $6 million this quarter, compared with a pretax loss of $1 million last year.

Home warranty total revenues were $105 million this quarter, down 3 percent compared with last year. Declining sales in the real estate channel offset the benefit of higher price realization, growth in the direct-to-consumer channel and improving renewal rates. The claim loss rate was 58.8 percent in the third quarter, compared with 56.7 percent last year, driven by continued pressure on average claim costs that were partly offset by lower claim frequency. Home warranty's pretax income was $4 million this quarter, compared with $9 million last year. Excluding the impact of net investment losses and gains, pretax income was $6 million this quarter, compared with $9 million last year.

Due to the wind-down of the property and casualty business, no revenue was recorded this quarter while unfavorable claims experience contributed to a pretax loss of $10 million.
