ALLEGHANY CORPORATION REPORTS 2012 RESULTS:
STOCKHOLDERS EQUITY PER COMMON SHARE
INCREASES 10.8% SINCE 2011 YEAR-END
NEW YORK, NY, February 21, 2013 Alleghany Corporation (NYSE-Y) reported stockholders equity per common share of $379.13 as of December 31, 2012, an increase of 10.8% from stockholders equity per common share of $342.12 at 2011 year-end.
Stockholders equity per common share as of December 31, 2012 reflects 8,360,959 shares issued in connection with the merger between Alleghany and Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. (TransRe), which closed on March 6, 2012. Alleghanys results for 2012 include TransRes operations subsequent to the closing date.
Results for the 2012 fourth quarter include an after-tax underwriting loss, net of reinsurance and reinstatement premiums, of $267.8 million from Super Storm Sandy. In addition, fourth quarter after-tax investment income was reduced by $8.6 million as a result of Sandy losses at Alleghanys Homesite Group Incorporated investment.
Our recorded loss for Sandy is based on an analysis of reported claims, an underwriting review of in-force contracts, estimates of losses resulting from wind, flood and other perils, and other factors requiring considerable judgment. Our ultimate loss from Sandy may be materially different from the current estimate due to the broad size and complexity of the event and the preliminary nature of the available information.
Results for the fourth quarter and full year include:
An increase in stockholders equity to approximately $6.4 billion as of December 31, 2012 from approximately $2.9 billion as of December 31, 2011, primarily reflecting the merger and Alleghanys net earnings and unrealized investment gains in 2012.
Cash and invested assets as of December 31, 2012 of approximately $19.0 billion, compared with $4.9 billion as of December 31, 2011.

A 2012 fourth quarter net loss of $92.6 million or $5.47 per common share (presented on a basic basis throughout), compared with net earnings of $37.7 million or $4.38 per common share, for the 2011 fourth quarter.
