As previously announced on October 24, 2011, the Company announced a strategic business realignment to divest its ownership positions in its Lloyd’s and Island Heritage reporting segments in order to address changing business conditions, refocus its underwriting strategy on its property catastrophe reinsurance business and reduce its focus on operating segments that absorb capital and produce lower returns. Except as explicitly described as held for sale or as discontinued operations, and unless otherwise noted, all discussions and amounts presented herein relate only to our continuing operations. All prior years presented have been reclassified to conform to this new presentation.
The Company is a global reinsurance company. Our largest business is providing property catastrophe reinsurance coverage to a broad range of select insurance companies. These policies provide coverage for claims arising from major natural catastrophes, such as hurricanes and earthquakes, in excess of a specified loss. We also provide coverage for claims arising from other natural and man-made catastrophes such as winter storms, freezes, floods, fires and tornados. Our specialty lines cover such risks as aviation, energy, accident and health, satellite, marine, and workers’ compensation catastrophe.
