Hartford Financial Services Group Inc : The Hartford Announces Catastrophe Loss Estimate for Storm Sandy

12/11/2012 | 09:30am US/Eastern

The Hartford today announced its initial loss estimate for Storm Sandy. The company's gross losses and loss adjustment expenses from the storm are estimated to be approximately $370 million, before tax. Losses and loss adjustment expenses net of reinsurance are estimated at $350 million, before tax. Approximately 60 percent of the losses are in the Property and Casualty Commercial segment and 40 percent in Consumer Markets. Fourth quarter 2012 net catastrophe losses through Nov. 30, 2012, are currently estimated to be approximately $230 million, after tax.

The Hartford will release its fourth quarter 2012 financial results on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, at approximately 4:15 p.m. ET and will host a conference call to discuss these results on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013, at 9 a.m. ET. The conference call will be simultaneously webcast on the investor relations section of the company's website, http://ir.thehartford.com.

These are initial estimates which are expected to change due to the number of affected policyholders, the nature of the claims, the preliminary assumptions used to estimate gross losses and other factors. The ultimate amount of Storm Sandy losses could be materially different from these initial estimates.
