Direct Line Insurance Group PLC Analyst Notes
On May 2, 2014, Direct Line Insurance Group PLC (Direct Line) released its Interim Management Statement for Q1 2014. The Company said its Gross written premium during the quarter fell 5.6% YoY to £949.3 million, reflecting the impact of a competitive market, particularly in UK motor and home, together with the Group's continued focus on maintaining its underwriting discipline. The number of in-force policies for ongoing operations decreased by 6.7% YoY during the quarter to 18.1 million. The decrease was primarily attributed to Rescue and other personal lines, partially offset by International. For full-year 2014, Direct Line expects to achieve a combined operating ratio in the range of 95% to 97% for ongoing operations, assuming a normal level of claims from weather events, and a combined operating ratio of less than 100% for its Commercial division, assuming a normal level of claims from weather-related events and large losses.
