For the third quarter 2016, operating earnings was $126.3 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to $150.9 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, in the third quarter 2015.

Third quarter 2016 annualized operating return on common equity was 19.4% compared to 29.2% in the third quarter 2015.

“We delivered a solid performance in the third quarter, with strong investment results, higher service and fee income, and growth in gross written premiums, compared with the same period a year ago,” said Barry Zyskind, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, AmTrust. “Our performance reflects a full quarter’s contribution from Republic Companies, as well as continued strong policy retention and disciplined underwriting of new business in our small commercial business segment, as demonstrated by our stable loss ratio. The top-line results of our specialty risk and extended warranty segment reflect the impact of the decline in the British pound relative to the third quarter a year ago, and we are pleased with the underlying performance of this segment.”

Mr. Zyskind also stated, “We are optimistic about our organic growth prospects, given our differentiated model in workers’ compensation and commercial lines products in the U.S., as well as opportunities in our warranty insurance offering globally. We remain focused on building a portfolio of business that leverages our proprietary technology and our efficient operating structure to enhance shareholder returns.”
