Reports Q4 revenue $154.9M. The company said, "We had another challenging year in 2014 primarily due to continued high severity in the commercial auto liability coverages. Although we will never make excuses or be satisfied with combined ratios near or worse than breakeven, we note that our commercial auto liability results are consistent with industry trends. We continue to believe our current risk selection and pricing have improved as evidenced by approximately $105 million of business we non-renewed in the past 24 months, the continuous rate increases since 2012, and with many of our specialty niche insurance products performing well on an accident year basis."
