A.M. Best Comments on Credit Ratings of Employers Mutual Casualty Company and Its Subsidiaries
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OLDWICK - NOVEMBER 26, 2018
EMCC owns approximately 55% of EMCI’s common stock, and has submitted a proposal to acquire the outstanding common stock for $30 per share in cash. While the proposal is being considered by a special committee of EMCI’s board of directors, business will continue as usual for EMC Insurance Companies. If the proposed transaction is eventually approved by EMCI’s special committee and shareholders, it should have no impact on the operations of EMC Insurance Companies.
A.M. Best has determined that, although capital at EMC Insurance Companies will decline slightly as a result of the proposed transaction, due to the payment of cash to minority shareholders, the overall group’s balance sheet strength will remain at the strongest level as measured by Best’s Credit Rating Methodology.
The following is a list of EMCC’s P/C subsidiaries:
