Progressive Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Matt Downing

Thank you, Wendy, and good morning. Welcome to Progressive's conference call. Participating on today's call are Glenn Renwick, our CEO; and Brian Domeck, our CFO; and Bill Cody, our Chief Investment Officer. This call is scheduled to last about an hour.

As always, our discussions on this call may include forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations and are subject to many risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual events and results to differ materially from those discussed during this call. Additional information concerning those risks and uncertainties is available in our 2010 annual report on Form 10-K and our quarterly report on Form 10-Q issued during 2012, where you will find discussions of the risk factors affecting our businesses, Safe Harbor statements relating to forward-looking statements and other discussions of the risks, uncertainties and other challenges we face. Each of these documents can be found via the Investors page of our website, progressive.com.

Wendy, we are now ready to take our first question.

Question-and-Answer Session

Operator

[Operator Instructions] Our first question today is from Vincent D'Agostino [ph] from Stifel, Nicolaus.

Unknown Analyst

In our own test drive of Snapshot, we had a few issues with foreign-made cars, where we had to get a second device. And the customer service representative that helped us out was able to confirm that there was some communication issues with nondomestic vehicles. So I was just curious how prevalent of an issue is that really in reality.

Glenn M. Renwick

I am sorry. I'm not going to be able to give you a great deal of information on that. If it was a significant issue, I'd know about it. I know there are some contingencies, but nothing that's sort of -- it's what I would call a significant level. So I can't give you more specifics than that, but i"m happy to follow up on it. But really, given the numbers that we're dealing with, that's a very, very small number.
