Exhibit 99.1 AMCOMP REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2007 FINANCIAL RESULTS 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 period. 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.
