Moderate deterioration in result

Gross premium income from Marine insurance business increased by € 3.7 million or 2.2% to € 172.2 million. While growth in previous years came from foreign business expansion, the upturn in the year under review was due entirely to business in Germany.

The Petrobras major loss and the explosion at a chemical factory in Toulouse were the principal causes of the increase in loss expenditure. The net loss ratio for accounting purposes stood at 94.2%, which was 10.1 percentage points higher than in the preceding year.

The net account showed a heightened deficit of € 28.5 million (p.y. € 25.8 million).
