A reconciliation of this measure to net income attributable to Flagstone is presented at the end of this release.

For the third quarter, Flagstone produced a loss ratio of 94.6% and a combined ratio of 136.5%. This resulted in a decrease in diluted book value of 7.1% during the third quarter. Flagstone’s North American portfolio produced competitive results despite severe weather activity in the Midwest United States and Hurricane Irene impacting the Northeast. The quarter was negatively impacted by upward revisions from catastrophes occurring in the first quarter as well as some upwards movement from the U.S. weather in the second quarter.
