WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Triad Guaranty Inc. (OTCBB: TGIC) today announced that the Illinois Department of Insurance (the "Department") has issued an Administrative Order recommending that Triad Guaranty Insurance Corporation ("Triad") be placed in rehabilitation. Additionally, the Department is expected to file today a Complaint for Rehabilitation with the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois seeking an Order of Rehabilitation. The Board of Directors of Triad has consented to the Order of Rehabilitation and it is expected to be entered by the Court in the near future.
Upon entry of the Order of Rehabilitation by the Court, the Director of the Illinois Department of Insurance will be vested with possession and control over all of the assets and liabilities of Triad and Triad Guaranty Inc. will cease to have any oversight or management authority over Triad or its business and affairs.
In a related matter, on December 10, 2012, the Department approved reimbursement by Triad of expenses totaling $734,000 incurred by Triad Guaranty Inc. on behalf of Triad. As a result of the Order of Rehabilitation, Triad Guaranty Inc. does not expect to receive any further reimbursement of expenses or other funds from Triad.
As discussed in Triad Guaranty Inc.'s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on November 14, 2012, this action by the Department to place Triad in rehabilitation will negatively impact Triad Guaranty Inc.'s ability to fund its operations in the future. Triad Guaranty Inc. expects that this action will likely lead it to commence winding up its business and liquidating through a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding or other liquidation proceedings, although the timing of the institution of such a proceeding has not been determined.
