The U.S. public finance insurance segment recorded $163 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared with $103 million of adjusted pre-tax income in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in adjusted pre-tax income resulted primarily from greater net gains on sales of securities and lower loss and loss adjustment expenses, partially offset by a realized loss associated with the write-off of $31 million of goodwill.Total premiums earned in the U.S. public finance insurance segment were $113 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, essentially flat with total premiums earned in the fourth quarter of 2010, as a decrease in scheduled premiums earned was offset by an increase in refunding premiums earned.
