The National Security Group, Inc. Releases Earnings

The National Security Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSEC) today announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2011. Total revenues were $62,092,000 compared to $69,392,000 for the same period last year; a decrease of 10.5%. A decrease in earned premium in the P&C segment along with a decline in net realized investment gains were the primary contributing factors to the decrease in total revenue for 2011 over 2010.

The Company ended the year 2011 with a net loss totaling $4,956,000, or $2.01 per share, compared to net income of $3,265,000, or $1.32 per share, in 2010.

For the year 2011, policyholder benefits were 78.3% of earned premium compared to 63.7% in 2010, an increase of 14.6 percentage points. Losses and loss adjustment expenses incurred in the P&C segment from increased storm activity during 2011 combined with losses and adjustment expenses from an automobile program were the primary reasons for the increase compared to the same period last year.
