Tom McDonnell, the company's co-chairman and co-CEO, stated, "While we are disappointed with the increase in net loss as compared to the prior year, during our fiscal second quarter of 2012 we continued to experience a decrease in incremental run-off claims from the insurance portfolios that were moved to a first dollar program."
