Third Quarter Overview

Meadowbrook Insurance Group, Inc. (NYSE: MIG) ("Meadowbrook" or the "Company") reported third quarter 2013 net income of $5.5 million or $0.11 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of ($26.6 million), or ($0.53) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. For the third quarter of 2013, net operating income, a non-GAAP measure the Company defines as net income excluding after-tax realized gains and losses, was $5.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, as compared to a net operating loss of ($27.2 million), or ($0.55) per diluted share for the same period in 2012. For the third quarter of 2013, net operating income, excluding the impact of the quota share surplus relief treaty, was $6.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. 

Third quarter 2013 results include $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, of after-tax realized gains, compared to $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, during the same period in 2012.

The third quarter 2013 GAAP combined ratio was 103.0%, as compared to 127.1% in 2012. The GAAP combined ratio, excluding the impact of the quota share surplus relief treaty, was 101.4% for the third quarter 2013.

Third quarter 2013 results include an after-tax adjustment to net ultimate loss estimates for prior accident years 2012 and prior of $4.5 million, or $0.09 per share, or 3.8 combined ratio percentage points.

The expense ratio was 30.0% in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 31.9% in 2012. The third quarter 2013 expense ratio, excluding the impact of the quota share surplus relief treaty, was 33.4%. The increase in the expense ratio resulted from a $2.5 million, or 1.4 percentage points, reallocation of corporate overhead costs from our fee-for-service operations to insurance company operations.  The reallocation reflects a shift of corporate resources used to support capital and operating enhancements focused on strengthening statutory surplus and returning the insurance companies to an underwriting profit.  There is a corresponding decrease to general selling & administrative costs in the quarter.  This reallocation had no net income effect. The remaining 0.4 percentage point increase reflects the use of an unaffiliated "A" rated insurance company for policy issuance purposes.

Pre-tax net investment income for the third quarter of 2013 decreased to $11.7 million from $13.8 million for the third quarter of 2012. The decrease reflects the impact from the fourth quarter 2012 sale of a portion of our bond portfolio in order to generate realized gains. The Company reinvested the proceeds during the first quarter of 2013 in bonds with lower interest rates.

Third quarter 2013 gross written premium decreased to $257.0 million, compared to $306.0 million in the third quarter of 2012. This anticipated decrease primarily reflects the impact of business that was discontinued in 2012 and was partially offset by the accelerating pace of rate increases that have been achieved.

Pre-tax profit from net commissions and fee revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $3.4 million, compared to $1.7 million for the third quarter of 2012. The increased profitability was primarily due to the previously mentioned reallocation of corporate overhead costs to insurance company operations, offset partially by an increase in professional fees.

General corporate expenses increased to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $0.7 million in 2012.

Amortization expense decreased to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $1.4 million in 2012.

Commenting on the results for the quarter, Robert Cubbin, President and CEO stated: "We are seeing a reversion to a more normal incurred loss pattern across the vast majority of our business lines. While we have not yet fully returned to our historic levels of underwriting profitability, we are encouraged by the progress we are making and the actions we have taken to return to profitability on a more consistent basis."

2014 Guidance Provided

Management expects gross written premium for 2014 to be between $775 million and $800 million. Management also expects the Company's net operating income to be between $25 million and $35 million or between $0.50 and $0.70 per share for 2014. We expect the combined ratio to be between 99% and 100% compared to the 2013 year to date accident year combined ratio of 98.4%, excluding the impact of the quota share arrangement.  The expected change in the combined ratio reflects a benefit from the previously terminated business and earned rate increases in excess of loss trends, offset by additional expense associated with the costs of using an unaffiliated insurance company for policy issuance and the impact of the anticipated reduction in premium in relation to our internal fixed costs.    

Commenting on expectations for the 2014, Mr. Cubbin stated: "With the rate increases achieved in 2013 which are expected to be earned in 2014 and the underwriting actions taken to terminate underperforming business, we are beginning to see improvements in our accident year loss and LAE ratio and expect those improvements to continue.  We continue to focus on expense initiatives as we reduce premium volume and we are looking at alternative means to limit the need for an unaffiliated "A" rated insurance company to issue policies in areas of our business that are rating-sensitive.  We are committed to solidifying our underwriting profitability and are continuing to explore strategic alternatives designed to maximize shareholder value."

Other Matters

Dividends:
On October 29, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.02 per share payable on December 3, 2013 to shareholders of record as of November 18, 2013.

Debt to Equity Ratio:
At September 30, 2013, Meadowbrook's debt-to-equity ratio was 56.9%.  The Company's debt-to-equity ratio excluding the 30 year interest only senior and junior subordinated debentures (the "Debentures") was 37.9% at September 30, 2013. The Company's debt-to-equity ratio excluding the Debentures and the drawdown of $30 million on Meadowbrook's Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") credit facility, under which the Company purchased $30 million of high quality fixed income securities that match the maturity of the FHLB credit facility was 30.9%.

Investment Portfolio:
At September 30, 2013, average pre-tax book yield, excluding cash and cash equivalents was 3.1%, compared to 3.4% at December 31, 2012. The tax-equivalent yield, excluding cash and cash equivalents was 3.6% at September 30, 2013 compared to 4.0% at December 31, 2012.  The tax adjusted effective duration of the portfolio was 4.5 and 4.7 years at September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

Shareholders' Equity:
Shareholders' equity was $426.8 million, or $8.56 per common share, at September 30, 2013, compared to $558.3 million, or $11.22 per common share, at December 31, 2012.  This decrease reflects the after-tax non-cash goodwill impairment of $1.50 per share, a reduction in net unrealized gains of $0.68 per share from $1.00 per share at December 31, 2012 to $0.32 per share at September 30, 2013.  

Statutory Surplus:
At September 30, 2013, the combined statutory surplus was $505.6 million, compared to $426.3 million at December 31, 2012.  

Premium Leverage Ratios:
As of September 30, 2013, on a trailing twelve month statutory combined basis, the Company's gross and net premium leverage ratios were 1.98 to 1.0 and 1.29 to 1.0, respectively.

Cash Flows from Operations:
For the three months ended September 30, 2013, cash flows provided from operating activities were $20.4 million, compared to $54.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The decrease in operating cash flows reflects a net cash outflow on the quota share surplus relief treaty and a decrease in cash from underwriting activities.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, cash flows provided from operating activities were $18.9 million, compared to $127.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The decrease in operating cash flows reflects a net cash outflow on the quota share surplus relief treaty and a decrease in cash from underwriting activities.

Share Repurchases:
The Company did not repurchase any shares during the third quarter of 2013.

Our Share Repurchase Plan expired October 28, 2013.

Year to Date 2013

Management uses net operating income (loss) and net operating income (loss) per share as components to assess the Company's performance and as measures to evaluate the results of the Company's business. Management believes these measures provide investors with helpful information relating to the Company's ongoing performance that may be obscured by the net effect of realized gains and losses as a result of the Company's market risk sensitive instruments, which primarily relate to fixed income securities that are available for sale and not held for trading purposes. Realized gains and losses may vary significantly between periods and are generally driven by external economic developments, such as capital market conditions. Accordingly, net operating income (loss) excludes the effect of items that tend to be highly variable from period to period and highlights the results from the Company's ongoing business operations and the underlying loss or profitability of the Company's business. Accordingly, management believes it is useful for investors to evaluate net operating income (loss) and net operating income (loss) per share, along with net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share, when reviewing and evaluating Meadowbrook's performance.

Combined Ratio

The combined loss and expense ratio (or combined ratio), expressed as a percentage, is the key measure of underwriting profitability traditionally used in the property and casualty insurance business.  The term combined ratio is a statutory measurement which represents the sum of the ratio of losses and loss adjustment expenses (LAE) to premiums earned (loss ratio) plus the ratio of underwriting expenses to premiums written (expense ratio).  Management evaluates the performance of the Company's underwriting operations utilizing GAAP accounting and therefore the statutory combined ratio is converted to a GAAP combined ratio.  The GAAP combined ratio is the sum of the ratio of losses and loss expenses to premiums earned (loss ratio) plus the ratio of GAAP underwriting expenses (including the change in DAC) to premiums earned (expense ratio).

The accident year combined ratio is a non-GAAP measure and represents the Company's GAAP combined ratio excluding the impact of any changes in net ultimate loss estimates on prior year loss and LAE reserves. The accident year combined ratio is intended as supplemental information. The accident year combined ratio should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial results. The following is a reconciliation of the accident year combined ratio to the GAAP combined ratio (both as reported and excluding quota share surplus relief treaty):

Management uses the accident year combined ratio as one component to assess the Company's current year performance and as a measure to evaluate and, if necessary, adjust our pricing and underwriting. Meadowbrook's GAAP combined ratio is based on calendar year information. Adjusting this ratio to an accident year combined ratio allows us to evaluate information based on the current accident year activity. Management believes this measure provides investors with valuable information for comparison to historical trends and current industry estimates. Management also believes that it is useful for investors to evaluate the accident year combined ratio and GAAP combined ratio separately when reviewing and evaluating the Company's performance.
