More than 50 million euro additional annual Gross Written Premium expected
Continuing strong profitable growth
In addition to the 36 million euro in annualised Gross Written Premium
(GWP) disclosed mid of October 2012, the management achieved to underwrite
additional new profitable insurance schemes of more than 50 million euro
annual GWP that contribute to the profitable growth strategy.
The following new Insurance Schemes have been signed within the last weeks:
Greek Car Insurance Business: >15m euro
Enterprise Insurance now is one of the largest car insurers in Greece. The
new account insures private cars and it is expected that it will generate
more than 15m euro in additional annualised GWP. With the existing schemes
Enterprise currently owns approximately 10 percent of market share of the
Greek car insurance business.
Andrew John Flowers, CEO and Founder of Enterprise Holdings: 'While the car
insurance risk is unlimited in the UK the risk for car insurers in Greece
is limited to 1 million euro per individual contract of which we transfer
500k euro to our reinsurance partners. This means that we can generate GWP
at a relative low risk level which results in a very profitable business.'
New Motor Business Insurance in Italy: 12m euro
With this new scheme Enterprise Insurance enters the Italian market and
insures lorries that must be owner-driven. Most of the lorries have a gross
vehicle weight of more than 3.5 tons. The new business will generate
additional 12m euro annualised GWP.
Andrew John Flowers, CEO and Founder of Enterprise Holdings: 'Drivers who
own the lorry take much more care of their vehicles which in many cases are
the basis to generate their daily income. Therefore we have a lower
portfolio risk combined with a competitive premium.'
UK National Health Service Scheme: 12m euro
This scheme insures approximately 9,900 company cars driven by the
employees of the UK National Health Service. Premium payments are made in
advance on a monthly basis.
Taxi Insurance in UK: 12m euro
Approximately 9,000 taxis located in the UK are included in this scheme.
All taxis insured must be owner-driven to ensure lower damage risk.

account, that has been acquired by an insurance broker, brings us in the
number 1 position becoming the market leader in taxi insurance in the UK.'
