Meadowbrook Insurance Group, Inc. Reschedules 2012 Third Quarter Earnings Press Release And Conference Call In Anticipation Of Possible Power And Communication Disruption Due To Severe Weather On The East Coast
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Meadowbrook Insurance Group, Inc. (NYSE: MIG) announced that due to the potential disruption to communication and power outages as a result of Hurricane Sandy, that it has rescheduled the release of its 2012 third quarter results to after the close of regular stock market hours on Thursday, November 1, 2012. The Company will hold a conference call at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, November 2, 2012. Previously, the earnings release had been scheduled for the close of the market on Monday, October 29, 2012, followed by the conference call on Tuesday, October 30, 2012. A state of emergency has been declared in many east coast communities and the current weather forecast indicates a high risk of disruption to power and communications in the next few days. Should the impact of the storm be less, and it is appropriate to do so, Meadowbrook Insurance Group could accelerate the earnings release and conference call as appropriate. Public notification of any change in the press release and conference call will be communicated if and when such a decision is made. Commenting on the rescheduled release and conference call, Robert S. Cubbin, President and Chief Executive Officer, states: "The severe weather occurring and anticipated on the east coast is obviously disruptive to many businesses and individuals. Because we anticipate potential power outages and disruptions in communication, it would be difficult for interested parties to participate in a conference call on Tuesday. Therefore, we decided to reschedule the earnings release and conference call. If the situation changes we could move up the dates." Conference Call Meadowbrook's 2012 third quarter results will be discussed by management in more detail on Friday, November 2, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. EDT.
