AmCOMP Reports First Quarter 2008 Financial Results

North Palm Beach, FL, May 6, 2008 -
AmCOMP Incorporated (Nasdaq: AMCP) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008.
 
For the first quarter of 2008, net income was $4.5 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to net income of $4.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the same period in 2007.  Weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the first quarter of 2008 were 15,402,000 compared to 15,779,000 for the first quarter of 2007. Total revenue for the first quarter of 2008 was $57.5 million versus $64.1 million in the comparable period in 2007.
 
The net combined ratio for the first quarter improved to 95.5% compared to 96.4% for the same period in 2007.  Book value per outstanding share was $10.79 at March 31, 2008, compared to a book value per outstanding share of $10.35 as of December 31, 2007.  AmCOMP’s return on equity was 11.2% at the end of the first quarter of 2008 compared to 11.3% at March 31, 2007.
 
Commenting on the Company’s first quarter 2008 financial results, Debra Ruedisili, AmCOMP’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, said:  “This quarter’s financial performance underscores AmCOMP’s ability to successfully manage its business and make an underwriting profit in a challenging market.  By maintaining underwriting discipline and pricing integrity, despite the continuation of the soft cycle, we improved our year-over-year first quarter bottom line results and combined ratio.  We accomplished this by focusing, among other things, on our loss and loss adjustment expenses, reporting a notable 52.7% loss ratio for the quarter.  Additionally, we extended our record of redundancies to 13 consecutive years as we released $6.8 million for the first quarter 2008, less reinsurance, as a result of favorable loss development.
 
“It appears that we are quickly approaching the close of our merger with EMPLOYERS.  The members of AmCOMP’s management team would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our employees, independent agents, policyholders and service providers for their support of the AmCOMP brand over the past 26 years.  We also commend our employees for their dedication and hard work as they delivered industry-leading customer service, our independent agents for their proud representation of AmCOMP in the market place, our policyholders for their willingness to work with us to reduce their workers’ compensation costs, our service providers for their facilitation of our business and you, our stockholders, for your belief in the value of the name ‘AmCOMP’.  We hope you are well pleased with the return on your investment.”
 
Previously Announced Definitive Agreement
 
On January 10, 2008, AmCOMP announced that it signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Employers Holdings, Inc. (“EMPLOYERS®”) (NYSE: EIG), a provider of workers’ compensation insurance to small U.S. businesses.  Under the terms of the merger agreement, EMPLOYERS will acquire 100% of AmCOMP’s outstanding stock and its subsidiaries for approximately $194 million in cash, or $12.50 per share of common stock. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, approval by AmCOMP stockholders and customary conditions of closing, is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2008.
