Revenues decreased $26.3 million primarily from a $38.2 million decrease in earned premiums in the Property & Casualty Insurance segment, partially offset by $16.2 million higher net investment income.

Income from continuing operations was $63.3 million or $1.24 per diluted share against $54.8 million or $0.98 per diluted share a year ago. Book value per share was $39.88, up 8% from $36.86 at the end of 2013, largely from the impact of lower yields on the fixed maturities portfolio.
