Exhibit 99.1


NORTH PALM BEACH,  FL, MAY 9, 2007 - AmCOMP  Incorporated  (Nasdaq:  AMCP) today
announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2007.

For the first quarter of 2007, net income was $4.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted
share,  compared to net income of $6.0 million,  or $0.46 per diluted share, for
the same period in 2006.  Weighted  average  diluted shares  outstanding for the
first  quarter of 2007 were  15,779,000  compared  to  12,892,000  for the first
quarter of 2006.  Total  revenue for the first quarter of 2007 was $64.1 million
versus $70.1 million in the comparable period in 2006.

The net combined ratio including policyholder dividends for the first quarter of
2007 was  96.4%  compared  to 90.8% for the same  period in 2006.  Loss and loss
adjustment  expenses  for the first  quarter of 2007 were $34.9  million  versus
$37.5 million in the same period in 2006.  Total  underwriting  expenses for the
first  quarter were $19.9  million  compared to $19.8  million in the prior year

Commenting on the Company's financial results, Fred R. Lowe, President and Chief
Executive  Officer  said:  "We  continue  our  focus  on  producing   consistent
underwriting  profits and we are pleased with this  quarter's  combined ratio of
96.4%. We are committed to our underwriting  discipline and our efforts to reach
our  targets  for  underwriting   profit  despite  the  pricing   pressures  and
competitiveness  in  the  workers'  compensation  market.  During  the  quarter,
excluding  involuntary  pools  and  unallocated  loss  adjustment  expenses,  we
realized $6.3 million in redundancies,  highlighting  our favorable  outcomes in
relation  to our loss  reserves.  Our book  value  increased  2.5%  over that at
year-end 2006.

"Our  premiums  decreased  in Florida  largely  due to the impact of yet another
state-mandated rate decrease,  this time of 15.7%, which followed on top of last
year's  rate  decrease  of  13.5%,  as  well  as a  decrease  in  payrolls  from
construction activities. While a slow-down in construction has not been an issue
in our other  states,  there is  increased  competition  in some of the  states,
particularly Indiana, Kentucky and Texas.

"While  this  quarter's  earnings  are  not as  robust  as we  would  like,  our
management  team and I believe  that the company  remains  well  positioned  for
future  profitability.  Our balance  sheet is clean and we continue to invest in
technology to improve the ease of doing business with us, as well as other sales
and  marketing  programs that should  contribute  to positive  results in future
periods.  We  are  mindful  of  achieving  a  healthy  balance  between  expense
containment  and expansion of our  distribution  network into other states," Mr.
Lowe concluded.
