(Nasdaq:EMCI) (the “Company”) today reported an operating loss of $0.14 per share for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to an operating loss of $1.08 per share for the second quarter of 2011 1.

Unfortunately, the positive impact those rate increases had on second quarter operating results was overshadowed by a high level of catastrophe losses and a decline in the amount of favorable development experienced on prior years’ reserves,” stated Bruce G. Kelley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to believe that the persistent level of above-average catastrophe losses is an aberration attributed to an active weather cycle, and does not reflect a permanent change in weather patterns. Future operating results should benefit from the rate level increases we are implementing now.”
