Validus Announces Full Year 2012 Net Income Of $408.4 Million And Fourth Quarter 2012 Net Loss Of $(90.7) Million

Validus Holdings, Ltd. (“Validus” or the “Company”) (NYSE: VR) today reported net income available to Validus of $408.4 million, or $3.99 per diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $21.3 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Net operating income available to Validus for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $333.8 million, or $3.26 per diluted common share, compared to $52.3 million, or $0.44 per diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Commenting on the Company's 2012 financial results, Ed Noonan, Validus' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated: "Validus delivered solid financial results during 2012, a year which included Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest insured catastrophe losses on record. Validus' net income in excess of $400 million for the year and double digit growth in diluted book value per share plus dividends reaffirm the value of our strategy and business model. Validus' three operating segments - Validus Re, Talbot, and AlphaCat - are all leaders in their respective markets. Although each of these businesses stands on its own, they are united by a focus on short tail classes of business and draw upon the outstanding personnel and technical resources available throughout the Company.

Validus enters 2013 in an excellent position. The recent acquisition of Flagstone has provided additional scale in Validus Re's core property catastrophe reinsurance business, Talbot's focus on Marine and Property classes will allow it to capitalize on loss driven rate increases, and AlphaCat recently announced a significant increase in third party capital under management. Together with over $4 billion of common shareholders' equity, $5.2 billion of total capitalization and a high grade investment portfolio, Validus has the size, scale and security to provide significant capacity to our clients and their intermediaries.”

Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

Net loss attributable to Validus for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $(90.7) million, or $(0.94) per diluted common share compared to net income available to Validus of $27.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted common share for the three months ended December 31, 2011.
