Third Quarter Results
Total revenues increased 13.8% to $64.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $56.5 million for the third quarter of 2011. Net revenues (total revenues less net losses and loss adjustment and commissions expenses) increased 8.6% to $31.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $28.8 million for the prior-year period. The change in accounting estimate recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2012 increased total revenues and net revenues by $4.0 million and $1.2 million, respectively.

Operating expenses were $20.7 million compared with $18.2 million one year ago. The 2011 acquisition of Pacific Benefits Group contributed $1.4 million of the increase.

Net income for the third quarter 2012 was $4.1 million or $0.20 per diluted share, comparable to $4.1 million, or $0.19 per diluted share in the third quarter 2011. The change in accounting estimate contributed $1.0 million during the quarter. In addition, as previously announced, the company experienced a one-time charge of $0.7 million (pre-tax) during the quarter related to the retirement of the previous debt facility.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $10.9 million, compared to $10.8 million for the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 34.9%, compared to 37.7% for the prior-year period.

Segment Results
Payment Protection
For the three months ended September, 2012, net revenues for the Payment Protection segment were $17.5 million, compared to $15.8 million for the prior-year period. The current period included net revenues of $1.2 million attributable to the change in accounting estimate. EBITDA for the Payment Protection segment was $7.9 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $7.3 million for the prior-year period. EBITDA margin for the Payment Protection segment was 45.3% for the third quarter of 2012, compared to 46.4% for the prior-year period. Direct and assumed written premiums increased 6.3% year-over-year to a record $100.4 million.

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)
Net revenues for the BPO segment increased to $5.0 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $3.8 million for the third quarter of 2011, primarily attributable to the PBG acquisition. EBITDA for the BPO segment was essentially flat at $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to the prior-year period. EBITDA margin for the BPO segment declined to 22.5% for the third quarter of 2012, compared to 29.1% for the prior-year period. The decline reflects weaker than expected margins from Pacific Benefits Group.

Brokerage
Net revenues for the Brokerage segment declined to $8.8 million for the third quarter of 2012 from $9.2 million in the prior-year period. EBITDA for the Brokerage segment fell modestly to $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $1.7 million for the prior-year period. EBITDA margin for the Brokerage segment declined 80 bps year over year to 17.8%. Bliss & Glennon revenues continued to outpace prior year results, while a soft reinsurance market is impacting eReinsure.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Fortegra presents certain additional financial measures related to its Business Segments that are "Non-GAAP measures" within the meaning of Regulation G under the Securities Act of 1934. Fortegra presents these Non-GAAP measures to provide investors with additional information to analyze Fortegra's performance from period to period. Management also uses these measures to assess performance for Fortegra's segments and to allocate resources in managing Fortegra's businesses. However, investors should not consider these Non-GAAP measures as a substitute for the financial information that Fortegra reports in accordance with GAAP. These Non-GAAP measures reflect subjective determinations by management, and may differ from similarly titled Non-GAAP measures presented by other companies.

In this Earnings Release, we present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. These financial measures as presented in this Earnings Release are considered Non-GAAP financial measures and are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP and should not be used as an indicator of, and are not an alternative to, net income as a measure of operating performance. EBITDA as used in this Earnings Release is net income before interest expense, income taxes, non-controlling interest, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA as used in this Earnings Release means "Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA" which is defined under our credit facility with Well Fargo Bank, N.A., is generally consolidated net income before consolidated interest expense, consolidated amortization expense, consolidated depreciation expense and consolidated income tax expense. The other items excluded in this calculation may include if applicable, but are not limited to, specified acquisition costs, impairment of goodwill and other non-cash charges, stock-based compensation expense and unusual or non-recurring charges. The calculation below does not give effect to certain additional adjustments permitted under our credit facility, which if included, would increase the amount of Adjusted EBITDA reflected in this table. We believe presenting EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provides investors with a supplemental financial measure of our operating performance.

In addition to the financial covenant requirements under our credit facility, management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as financial measures of operating performance for planning purposes, which may include, but are not limited to, the preparation of budgets and projections, the determination of bonus compensation for executive officers, the analysis of the allocation of resources and the evaluation of the effectiveness of business strategies. Although we use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as financial measures to assess the operating performance of our business, both measures have significant limitations as analytical tools because they exclude certain material expenses. For example, they do not include interest expense and the payment of income taxes, which are both a necessary element of our costs and operations. Since we use property and equipment to generate service revenues, depreciation expense is a necessary element of our costs. In addition, the omission of amortization expense associated with our intangible assets further limits the usefulness of this financial measure. Management believes the inclusion of the adjustments to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain material non-cash items and about unusual items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future. Because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not account for these expenses, its utility as a financial measure of our operating performance has material limitations. Due to these limitations, management does not view EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a primary financial performance measure.

We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of similar companies in similar industries and to measure the company's ability to service its debt and other cash needs. Because the definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (or similar financial measures) may vary among companies and industries, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled financial measures used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this press release are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business.

These statements may include words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project,'' "plan," "intend," "believe," "may," "should," "can have," "likely" and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events.

The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our industry experience and our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you read this press release, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results. They involve risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) and assumptions. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual financial results and cause them to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. We believe these factors include, but are not limited to, those described under Item 1A. - "Risk Factors" in Fortegra's most current Annual Report on Form 10-K and most current Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of these assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release speaks only as of the date on which we make it. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them.
