Atlas Financial Holdings 2012 Premium Guidance

Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc. (TSX.V: AFH) (“Atlas” or the “Company”) today provided guidance regarding fourth quarter and full year 2012 premium for its operating subsidiaries American Country Insurance Company and American Service Insurance Company, Inc.

Gross premium written for the three months ended December 31, 2012 is expected to be approximately $10.7 million, representing a 17.8% increase relative to the three month period ended December 31, 2011. The expected increase in our gross premium written as compared to the prior year is primarily attributable to an increase in our commercial auto gross premium written as a result of the strategic focus on these core lines of business, coupled with our recent geographic expansion and positive response from new and existing agents. Gross premium written related to our core commercial automobile line of business is expected to be approximately $9.5 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2012, representing a 121.7% increase relative to the three month period ended December 31, 2011. Gross premium written for the three months ended December 31, 2012 is expected to be 54.2% less than the prior quarter due to the seasonal nature of our business.

Net premium earned for the three months ended December 31, 2012 is expected to be approximately $11.9 million, representing a 31.2% increase relative to the three month period ended December 31, 2011 and a 9.0% increase relative to the prior quarter. The expected increase in net premium earned is related primarily to the increase in commercial auto gross premium written during 2012.

For the full year, gross premium written is expected to be approximately $55.0 million, up from $42.0 million in 2011, and net premium earned is expected to be approximately $38.7 million, up from $35.7 million in 2011. We expect our core commercial automobile lines of business will account for 91.8% of gross premium written in 2012, compared to 44.7% of our gross premium written in 2011. In 2012, the gross premium written from our core commercial automobile lines is expected to increase by 169.0% relative to 2011.
