Economical Insurance Group Ltd. Key Developments

Economical Insurance Announces Consolidated Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

Economical Insurance announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. For the quarter, the company reported net earned premiums of $521.3 million against $481.4 million a year ago. Underwriting loss was $37.8 million against $5.4 million a year ago. Investment income was $57.8 million against $42.6 million a year ago. Net income was $5.3 million against $28.5 million a year ago. Net income decreased by $23.2 million over the same quarter a year ago as higher investment income was more than offset by higher underwriting losses driven largely by increased spend on the company strategic initiatives, as well as continued challenges in auto performance, relatively worse winter weather conditions, and increased catastrophe losses. Underwriting results were impacted by continued challenging auto performance, mainly in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta.
