Consumer Markets underwriting gain of $75 million in third quarter 2013, a 32% decline from third quarter 2012 due to higher current accident year catastrophe losses and less favorable PYD. Before catastrophes and PYD, the third quarter 2012 combined ratio improved 2.2 points to 91.1 from 93.3 in the prior year period, driven by earned pricing increases exceeding loss costs in auto and homeowners.
