- Underwriting income of $127.9 million and a combined ratio of 47.7%, compared to $9.7 million and 95.5%, respectively, was primarily driven by a relatively low level of insured catastrophes during the second quarter of 2012, compared to the second quarter of 2011, which was impacted by the U.S. tornadoes which had a net negative impact (2) of $70.8 million and added 51.8 percentage points to the combined ratio.
- Gross premiums written increased $25.8 million, or 4.0%, to $667.3 million. Excluding the impact of $30.7 million of negative reinstatement premium adjustments on the 2011 New Zealand and Tohoku earthquakes during the second quarter of 2012, and $23.2 million of reinstatement premiums written from large losses during the second quarter of 2011, respectively, gross premiums written increased $79.7 million, or 12.9%, due to growth in the Company's catastrophe, specialty and Lloyd's units, and inclusive of $37.7 million of gross premiums written on behalf of the Company's most recent fully collateralized joint venture, Timicuan Reinsurance III Limited ("Tim Re III").
- Total investment income of $44.8 million, which includes the sum of net investment income, net realized and unrealized gains on investments and net other-than-temporary impairments, compared to $66.5 million. The decrease in total investment income was primarily due to lower returns in the Company's portfolio of other investments, principally its private equity investments.
- Other income of $11.3 million, compared to an other loss of $5.2 million, was primarily due to the Company's weather and energy risk management operations generating income of $5.9 million, compared to incurring a loss of $3.8 million primarily as a result of positive results from its positions in the United Kingdom and its summer positions as at June 30, 2012 in certain regions of the United States and Canada.
