Direct premiums written were $24.0 million in the second quarter of 2010, down $244,000 or 1.0% from the same period a year ago. Year-to-date, direct premiums written are down $3.1 million or 5.6%. The rate of decline in direct premiums written slowed in the second quarter of 2010 due to an increase in new business written in Illinois. However, direct premiums have continued to decrease due to rate reductions based on lower claims frequency trends and competitive pressures. We insured 8,631 physicians at June 30, 2010, down from 8,821 insureds at year end 2009.

Net premiums earned in the second quarter of 2010 were up $1.0 million or 3.5% from the second quarter of 2009, but were down $1.6 million or 2.8% year-to-date. In the second quarter of 2010 we recognized $2.0 million of reduced ceded premiums due to the favorable development of loss reserves associated with our swing-rated reinsurance treaties on prior years.
