Excluding these items, core operating income in the quarter was $2.28 per share.

 

    Pre-tax catastrophe losses, net of reinsurance and including reinstatement premiums, were $447 million for the quarter, including $320 million for the northern California wildfires and other catastrophe losses as previously announced, $157 million for the southern California wildfires and $30 million of favorable adjustments related to catastrophe loss events in the third quarter.
