Kingstone Files Annual Report

Kingstone Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ: KINS) filed its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009.

Barry Goldstein, Kingstone’s Chairman and CEO, said “2009 was a transition year for our company. We exited the agency business, which was a major source of the Company’s revenues and earnings in years past. Our acquisition of Kingstone Insurance Company (“KICO”) took place on July 1, 2009. As a result, we include in our 2009 earnings six months of results for the insurance company. The results from the agency business are included in discontinued operations. A one-time gain, essentially giving recognition to a bargain purchase, was recorded in the amount of $5.18 million. As of year end, our book value per diluted share was $3.49.”

Victor Brodsky, Chief Financial Officer, commented that “so as to allow for some comparison to the prior year, selected unaudited pro forma results were prepared as though the transaction occurred as of January 1, 2008. This shows revenues from continuing operations increasing to $13.3 million in 2009 from $12.3 million in 2008. Net income on this same pro forma basis increased from a 2008 loss of ($144,000) to a 2009 net profit of $517,000. The net loss and income figures exclude the transactions costs of $240,000 and $62,000 for 2009 and 2009, respectively, relating to the acquisition of KICO and the gain on acquisition of KICO of $5,178,000 for 2009.
