Michael H. Braun, FedNat’s Chief Executive Officer commented,
High catastrophic losses, as well as big expenditures from extra reinsurance purchases and reinstatement charges, weighed heavily on FedNat’s earnings this quarter as the company attempted to lessen the effect of weather losses on their insurance businesses’ statutory capital. They were able to maintain acceptable capital balances at their insurance firms as a result of these efforts and capital downstreaming. The effect of a non-cash charge for a valuation allowance against their net deferred tax assets is also included in FedNat’s second-quarter profits. They anticipate realizing the net deferred tax assets in the future; nevertheless, the timing of this recognition will be determined by the timing of pre-tax revenue earned in future quarters.
