Reports book value per…

Reports book value per share $24.93 vs. $24.29 last year. Gross premiums written in Q3 decreased by $10.0M or 12.1%, primarily due to lower voluntary premiums on policies written in the quarter which were 10.7% lower as compared to the third quarter of 2019. The company said, "AMERISAFE continued to see loss cost declines and robust competition in the states we actively market and hazard classes we underwrite. These conditions suppressed premium, with policy count written in the quarter only down slightly. However, AMERISAFE's profitability remained strong. Our focus on managing expenses benefitted this quarter from a loss assessment change. We also continued to reach favorable outcomes on prior year claims. Our underwriting profit, along with investment returns, produced a 19.8% return on average equity for the quarter, and a strong capital position supported an extraordinary dividend for shareholders."
