Homeowners Choice Launches Information Technology Division

TAMPA, Fla., April 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Homeowners Choice, Inc. (NYSE:HCI) today announced the launch of its new information technology division called "Exzeo."  According to the company, the Exzeo division was formed to exploit technologies originally developed in-house for the company's own use, primarily in its insurance business.  The company said it plans to make commercial versions of these technologies available to third parties under the "Exzeo" brand. 

"We produced these technologies to optimize the productivity of our own personnel," said Homeowners Choice Chief Executive Officer Paresh Patel, "but we believe they will enable any organization to optimize its human capital.  By forming the Exzeo division we intend to give this technology group its own identity, distinct from our core insurance business, and we hope to enhance shareholder value," he said.
