Nürnberger Beteiligungs

Low rating, but industry uncertainties persist

Update | Financials | 20 Sep 2017

Nürnberger's results this year are riding out the challenging environment; net income rose 63% to €42m and guidance for the full year was upped from €40m to €60m. Against this, the dominant life insurance business faces limited medium-term visibility. At 1.02x conservative HGB book value per share and a dividend yield of 4.6%, the rating is undemanding.

Nürnberger Beteiligungs

Discounted valuation, restructuring potential

Initiation | Financials | 12 May 2017

Nürnberger Beteiligungs-AG (NBG) is now in its 134th year of operation and is one of Germany's oldest and most recognised insurers, with gross premium income of €3.3bn. While its market share of the life sector is small (c 3%), in disability it ranks among the top providers, with a market share of 9.2% in 2016. Aided by a refocusing strategy, NBG reported profits of €58m in 2016 (2015: €47m). It is also a solid dividend payer, paying €3.00/share for the fourth consecutive year. Expected future restructuring measures suggest potential for further efficiency and market share gains.
