Argo Group Financial Reporting Change

May 2, 2017

Bermuda-based Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd. will make a change to its reporting of financial results aligned with two reportable segments – U.S. Operations and International Operations – rather than the previously reported four segments, representing a simplification of its former operational framework.

“This is an important step better reflecting the way we are managing our businesses and thinking about our operating platforms,” said Argo Group CEO Mark E. Watson III. “We achieved important enhancements last year with the addition of Jose A. Hernandez to lead our international business and the acquisition of Ariel Re, which closed earlier this year.

“These recent additions combined with the consolidation of our U.S. Operations under the leadership of Kevin J. Rehnberg, allows us to make this change. With these additions and operational changes, we are better positioned as a global underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products.”

The reporting changes are effective with first quarter 2017 earnings. The U.S. Operations will include the Excess & Surplus Lines and Commercial Specialty businesses. International Operations will include Syndicate 1200, International Specialty and the newly acquired Ariel Re business.
