EMC Insurance Group Inc. Increases And Declares 124th Consecutive Quarterly Cash Dividend And Announces Other Board Actions

On November 1, 2012, EMC Insurance Group Inc. (NASDAQ:EMCI) (the “Company”) declared a quarterly dividend of $0.21 per share of common stock payable November 19, 2012 to shareholders of record as of November 12, 2012. The $0.21 per share quarterly dividend represents a 5.0 percent increase over the previous quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share. This is the one hundred and twenty-fourth consecutive quarterly dividend declared since EMC Insurance Group Inc. became a publicly held company in February 1982.

Additionally, on November 1, 2012, the Inter-Company Committees of the boards of the Company and Employers Mutual Casualty Company (Employers Mutual), the Company’s parent organization, approved changes to the terms of the excess of loss reinsurance agreement between the Company’s reinsurance subsidiary, EMC Reinsurance Company, and Employers Mutual for calendar year 2013. Effective January 1, 2013, pending regulatory approval, EMC Reinsurance Company will continue to retain the first $4.0 million of losses per event, but will also retain 20.0 percent of any losses between $4.0 million and $10.0 million and 10.0 percent of any losses between $10.0 million and $50.0 million associated with any event. In connection with the change in the amount of losses retained per event, the cost of the excess of loss coverage will decrease from the current 10.0 percent of total assumed reinsurance premiums to 9.0 percent of total assumed reinsurance premiums. These changes are a result of efforts to ensure that the terms of the agreement are fair and equitable to both parties.
