Stan Galanski, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with our second quarter results, reflecting solid underwriting profit in marine, specialty casualty and international D&O. We achieved renewal rate increases in most of our specialty product lines and we experienced particularly strong premium growth in our U.S. Excess and Surplus Lines businesses. Our underwriters continued to avoid business that failed to meet our required terms or price. Cash flow for the quarter was strong. Despite a decline in unrealized gains in our bond portfolio as a result of rising interest rates, our investment portfolio performed reasonably well and we remain confident in the quality of our invested assets."
