Kiwi insurer Tower (NZX/ASX: TWR) has revised its underlying net profit after tax (NPAT) FY23 guidance to between $7m and $10m including large events, up from a range of between a loss of $2m and a profit of $3m, based on preliminary unaudited results.


Tower’s previous profit guidance issued on 19 July assumed full use of its $50m large events allowance. However, due to lower-than-expected costs from Vanuatu cyclone claims, favourable foreign exchange rates and experiencing no large events since May 9, large events costs in FY23 are now expected to total around $38m.


Gross written premiums are expected to total $526m, up 17% on the prior year reflecting rating increases, organic growth, and strong customer retention.


Reported profit will be impacted by additional non-underlying costs including an increase to the customer remediation provision.


More information will be provided in Tower’s FY23 full year results announcement which will be made on 23 November.
