Total revenues for the Specialty Insurance segment were $84.0 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 6 percent compared with the second quarter of 2012. The increase in revenues was driven by higher premiums earned in both the home warranty and property and casualty business lines, partially offset by lower net realized gains in the current quarter. The overall loss rate in the Specialty Insurance segment was 61 percent in the current quarter, above the 56 percent loss rate in the prior year. Both business lines experienced higher losses in the quarter, resulting in a pretax margin of 8.7 percent, down from 16.7 percent in the second quarter of 2012.
