09:02 EDTALLAllstate reports January pre-tax catastrophe loss estimate $277M
Allstate announced estimated catastrophe losses for the month of January of $277M, pre-tax, or $180M after-tax. Catastrophe losses occurring in January comprised six events at an estimated cost of $271M, pre-tax, plus unfavorable reserve reestimates of prior reported catastrophe losses. One of the events met the definition of a winter freeze catastrophe in one region of the country but not in other regions due to the amount of claim counts. Non-catastrophe losses in these other regions were $39M pre-tax, which will be reflected primarily in the homeowners combined ratio and the homeowners underlying combined ratio that excludes catastrophe losses and prior year reserve reestimates.

06:20 EDTALLMarchex cuts 2014 call-driven revenue outlook due to revised Allstate commitment
Allstate (ALL) has indicated its desire to move to a fixed fee model going forward. Under this proposed model, Marchex’s (MCHX) economic upside would have been limited, while financial exposure to Marchex would have remained. Marchex does not believe it is in its best long-term interest to work under such an arrangement. Marchex will continue to work with Allstate as an integration partner utilizing its call analytics technology. Marchex expects this will be a relatively small financial contributor. Marchex CEO Russell Horowitz said, "“This outcome is disappointing, as we believe that a performance-based model is the way most companies are progressing. This is the trend we are seeing with our customer base... Beyond Allstate, we continue to experience growth in our customer base for call-driven advertising products and believe we are early in the customer adoption phase of mobile and call-driven advertising."
