    Q1 '06 Dividend

    Old Republic's Board of Directors Approves:
    2006-02-23

    CHICAGO, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Board of Directors of Old Republic International Corporation announced today that its Board of Directors approved the payment of the regular quarterly cash dividend of 14 cents per common share. This amount has been rounded up from the 13.6 cents post split quarterly rate that prevailed at year-end 2005. The dividend is payable on March 15, 2006 to shareholders of record on March 6, 2006.

    At the same meeting, the Directors approved an increase in the quarterly cash dividend rate to 15 cents per share beginning with the second quarter dividend. This represents a 10.3 percent increase from the current split- adjusted quarterly rate of 13.6 cents per share.

    This increase marks the twenty-fifth consecutive year that Old Republic has boosted its cash dividend rate. The company has paid cash dividends without interruption for 64 years.

    "On an annualized basis, the new dividend rate falls within our policy of paying out approximately 20 percent to 30 percent of average recurring earnings for the latest five year periods," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer A. C. Zucaro. "Our ability to provide these recurring increases in cash dividends to our shareholders reflects our confidence in the prospects of our business as a solid investment with good long-term earnings sustainability."
