Kansas City Life Announces First Quarter 2022 Results
 
Kansas City, MO.  Kansas City Life Insurance Company recorded a net loss of $7.7 million or $0.79 per share in the first quarter of 2022 compared to a net loss of $0.7 million or $0.07 per share in the first quarter of 2021.

The largest factor in the decline in net income in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 was an increase in policyholder benefits, largely from death benefits, net of reinsurance. Policyholder benefits have been heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its related impacts. In addition, the amortization of deferred acquisition costs and operating expenses increased compared to the prior year. Also, net investment income and net investment gains declined verses one year earlier. Partially offsetting these, income tax expense decreased compared to the prior year, reflecting a higher pretax loss.

Kansas City Life Insurance Company (OTCQX: KCLI) was established in 1895 and is based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Company's primary business is providing financial protection through the sale of life insurance and annuities. The Company operates in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
