Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

CHICAGO, Jan. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Old Republic International Corporation (NYSE: ORI), today announced that its subsidiary, Republic Mortgage Insurance Company ("RMIC") has been ordered into supervision by the North Carolina Department of Insurance ("NCDOI"). Pursuant to the Order of Supervision, RMIC is to reduce the cash payment on all claims paid after January 19, 2012, by 50 percent for an initial period not to exceed one year. The remaining 50 percent will be included in the statutory capital of RMIC to be paid at a future date as and when necessary funds are available. While the Order remains in effect, the run-off of the business in these circumstances renders a collateral event of default with respect to ORI's existing debt obligations less likely due to any future impairment of the regulatory capital and concomitant receivership of RMIC.
