United Insurance Holdings Corp. Subsidiary Approved To Write Property And Casualty Insurance In Rhode Island

Stock quotes in this article: UIHC

United Insurance Holdings Corp. (OTCBB: UIHC; UIHCW) (United or the Company), a property and casualty insurance holding company, announced today that the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation approved United Property and Casualty Insurance Company (UPC), one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, to write property and casualty insurance in the state as an admitted carrier. This brings the total number of states in the U.S. covered by UPC to four, along with Florida, Massachusetts and South Carolina.

“We are very pleased to be approved to write our products in another state,” said Don Cronin, United’s CEO. “By adding three additional east coast states over the past 13 months, we have significantly diversified our policy base into areas where our products and service fit the needs of homeowners, a process that continues to be our primary focus.”

As Mr. Cronin indicated, the Company will continue its expansion program. Its UPC subsidiary is in varying stages of discussion with other state insurance regulatory authorities regarding its desire to write property insurance in other states.
