Revenues decreased to $46.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to revenues of $53.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009, primarily due to a reduction of premiums. Chief Executive Officer's Comments Roy Thung, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Given our expertise in medical stop-loss and supplemental health products, we are well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities that will be created as health care reform is implemented. Our financial condition and balance sheet remain strong. We have no debt, $274 million of federal net operating loss carryforwards, and have grown our book value to $10.76 per share at June 30, 2010 from $10.46 per share at December 31, 2009. Our investment portfolio continues to be rated, on average, AA and has a low duration. This enables us, if we deem prudent, the flexibility to reinvest in much higher yielding longer-term securities, which would significantly increase investment income. A low duration portfolio such as ours also mitigates the adverse impact of potential inflation."
