Kingstone Companies Announces Filing of Form 10-Q/A

HEWLETT, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kingstone Companies, Inc. (NAS: KINS) announced today that it is restating its report issued on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2012. The need to restate the financial statements resulted from an error in the calculation of earned premiums relating to the change in commercial lines reinsurance quota share from 60% to 40% effective as of July 1, 2012. The error was caused by the inclusion in revenue of earned premiums relating to such change for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 rather than over the term of the reinsurance quota share treaty from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013. The earned premiums erroneously included in the third quarter results, net of expenses, will be recorded over the term of the treaty. The restated results of operations follow:

Year to date net income was $1.77 million, or $.47 per share, up from the $1.12 million and $.29 per share earned during the comparable period in 2011. Third quarter net income was $447,000, or $.11 per share, as compared to $220,000 and $.06 per share in the third quarter of 2011. Net operating income1 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1,700,000, or $.44 per share, as compared to $884,000 and $.23 per share generated during the comparable period in 2011. Third quarter net operating income1 was $404,000, or $.10 per share, while third quarter 2011 amounts were $89,000 and $.02 per share. The Company expects to file an amendment to its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2012 on or about February 27, 2013. Below is a summary of the impact of the adjustments on various shareholder measures:

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Measures

Net operating income - is net income exclusive of realized investment gains, net of tax. Net income is the GAAP measure most closely comparable to net operating income. Management uses net operating income, along with other measures, to gauge the Company's performance and evaluate results, which can be skewed when including realized investment gains, which may vary significantly between periods. Net operating income is provided as supplemental information, is not a substitute for net income and does not reflect the Company's overall profitability.
