In the quarter, unrealized gains and net income boosted shareholders' equity by over $79 million, an increase of 6.9%. Quarterly net operating income set a record at $28.2 million, reflecting growth in invested assets partially offset by a slightly higher combined ratio. Going forward, we are focused on enhancing underwriting performance and strengthening operating returns."

The Diversified Reinsurance segment's net premiums written totaled $168.9 million, an increase of 25.2% versus the second quarter of 2013. The growth in the Diversified Reinsurance segment's premium was the result of both new business wins and increased shares of existing client relationships in the U.S. and internationally. In the AmTrust Quota Share Reinsurance segment, net premiums written increased by 28.0% to $372.0 million compared to the second quarter of 2013, driven by favorable trends in lines of business such as worker's compensation.

The general and administrative expense ratio(8) decreased to 2.9% in the second quarter of 2014 versus 3.3% in the second quarter of 2013.

The combined ratio(10) for the second quarter of 2014 totaled 98.0% compared with 97.6% in the second quarter of 2013.

The second quarter 2014 Diversified Reinsurance segment combined ratio also included the established provision of $2.8 million, or 1.3 percentage points resulting from loss activity and additional ceded reinsurance reinstatement premiums both related to the divested excess and surplus lines property insurance business. These factors drove the combined ratio in the Diversified Reinsurance segment to increase to 99.9% compared to 97.4% in the second quarter of 2013.
