“During the third quarter, we generated premiums written of $142.6 million, a decrease of 30.6% compared to the prior year’s third quarter, primarily due to one large reserve cover that was written in the prior year period,” commented John Berger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“Our combined ratio for the quarter was 106.5%, which was in line with expectations given current market conditions and lines of business on which we focus. Our investments continued to perform well through the third quarter resulting in a 5.2% increase in diluted book value per share for the quarter.”
