Northstar Agri Under Strategic Review

John Hart, President and Chief Executive Officer of PICO Holdings Inc. (NasdaqGS:PICO) said, "Throughout our history we have worked tirelessly to create and enhance value, and our Board and management regularly evaluate strategies to enhance value for the benefit of all our shareholders. Consistent with that commitment, since the fourth quarter of 2014, we have been reviewing financial and strategic alternatives for monetizing our investment in Northstar Agri Industries, LLC, a canola seed crushing operation with a single plant in northern Minnesota. As has always been our business philosophy, we regularly evaluate opportunities where we can create value by investing in or acquiring businesses which we identify as undervalued and where our management participation can aid in the recognition of the business’s fair value as well as create additional value. Having overseen the completion of Northstar Agri Industries, LLC's fully operational canola processing plant with an integrated refinery, we believe we have created significant value at Northstar Agri Industries, LLC. However, as much as we may believe in the potential of Northstar Agri Industries, LLC and our ability to drive future value creation at Northstar Agri Industries, LLC, we believe that Northstar may have a higher valuation in the hands of a strategic buyer than as part of a diversified holding company.”
