uniqa7The Austrian insurer UNIQA announced first-quarter group earnings before tax decreased by 30.3% to EUR 81.4 million, but rose by a fifth excluding a gain of EUR 49.1 million a year ago from selling hotel assets, the company noted in a press release.

The net profit for the period amounted to EUR 57.7 million (1-3/2013: EUR 77.5 million), while the consolidated profit (after taxes and minority interests) fell by 26.4% to EUR 55.9 million. "In both cases, the decline is attributable to the non-recurring effect from the sale of the hotel group in the first quarter of 2013."

At the same time, premiums written rose by 2.3% to EUR 1.70 billion, while the combined ratio improved by 0.5% to 97.8% (1-3/2013: 98.3%). In 2012, the combined ratio was 101.3%.

For FY2013, UNIQA's positive outlook is closely on the stability of the capital markets, on the economic development, and on the remaining of the normal range of natural disasters.
