BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ryan Specialty third-quarter revenue jumps nearly 50%

Patrick G. Ryan

Ryan Specialty Group Holdings Inc. reported a 49% increase in third-quarter revenue to $352.8 million, driven by strong organic growth and the acquisition of All Risks Ltd.

The Chicago-based wholesaler and underwriting manager reported 28.9% organic revenue growth compared with the same period last year, which excludes the effects of acquisitions, foreign exchange and other adjustments.

The company reported a net loss of $32.6 million, due to charges related to its July initial public offering and expenses related to the All Risks acquisition, which was completed in September 2020.

Ryan Specialty’s wholesale brokerage net commissions and fees rose 48.3% to $229.1 million; binding authority net commissions and fees grew 46.1% to $52.8 million; and underwriting management net commissions and fees increased 53.4% to $70.7 million, according to the company’s earnings statement.

“Pricing in the E&S market remains firm and resilient,” said Patrick G. Ryan, chairman and CEO of Ryan Specialty, during a conference call with analysts after the markets closed Thursday.

While rate increases are decelerating in excess casualty, prices are rising sharply in other areas of the market, such as cyber liability, added Timothy W. Turner, president of the company.

Ryan Specialty will continue to pursue acquisitions, and its pipeline of potential deals is “robust,” Mr. Ryan said.

“We will remain very active but disciplined with respect to M&A,” he said.

The company expects full-year organic growth of between 21.5% and 22.5%, the statement said. The fourth-quarter organic growth rate will be affected by a surge in growth in the fourth quarter of 2020 after pandemic-related restrictions were eased, said Jeremiah R. Bickham, Ryan Specialty’s chief financial officer.
