Income available to common stockholders in the third quarter of 2013 totaled $13.4 million or $1.13 diluted earnings per common share, compared with $2.8 million or $0.27 diluted earnings per common share in the third quarter of 2012.

Gross premiums earned in the third quarter of 2013 increased 53.0% to $81.2 million from $53.1 million in the same period in 2012. The increase was primarily due to policies assumed from Citizens Property Insurance Corporation in November 2012.

Policy acquisition and other underwriting expenses in the third quarter of 2013 were $8.9 million compared with $6.6 million in the previous year period.

Other operating expenses, which include a variety of general and administrative expenses, totaled $8.8 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared with $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2012. The change was primarily due to increases in compensation and related expenses.

The company's loss ratio applicable to the third quarter of 2013 (defined as losses and loss adjustment expenses related to net premiums earned) was 27.4% compared with 49.1% in the third quarter of 2012.
