(Nasdaq: CNFR) (“Conifer” or the “Company”) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

We achieved solid top line growth in both Commercial and Personal lines, which will help Conifer achieve an efficient operating scale going forward.” 2021 First Quarter Financial Results Overview As of and for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 2020 % Change (dollars in thousands, except share and per share amounts) Gross written premiums$30,373 $25,084 21.1% Net written premiums 24,483 21,051 16.3% Net earned premiums 22,835 22,017 3.7% Net investment income 532 954 -44.2% Net realized investment gains 2,924 928 ** Change in fair value of equity investments (540) (3,086) ** Other gains - 115 ** Net income (loss) (4,636) (4,725) ** Net income (loss) per share, diluted$(0.48) $(0.49) Adjusted operating income (loss)* (7,020) (2,682) ** Adjusted operating income (loss) per share, diluted*$(0.72) $(0.28) ** Book value per common share outstanding$3.82 $3.81 Weighted average shares outstanding, basic and diluted 9,681,728 9,592,774 Underwriting ratios: Loss ratio (1) 84.4% 64.5% Expense ratio (2) 44.6% 47.1% Combined ratio (3) 129.0% 111.6% * The "Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures" section of this release defines and reconciles data that are not based on generally accepted accounting principles. ** Percentage is not meaningful (1) The loss ratio is the ratio, expressed as a percentage, of net losses and loss adjustment expenses to net earned premiums and other income from underwriting operations. (2) The expense ratio is the ratio, expressed as a percentage, of policy acquisition costs and other underwriting expenses to net earned premiums and other income from underwriting operations. (3) The combined ratio is the sum of the loss ratio and the expense ratio. A combined ratio under 100% indicates an underwriting profit. A combined ratio over 100% indicates an underwriting loss. 2021 First Quarter Premiums Gross Written PremiumsGross written premiums increased 21.1% in the first quarter of 2021 to $30.4 million, compared to $25.1 million in the prior year period. The increase was the result of growth in both Commercial and Personal lines business as we continue to penetrate markets where we have been the most successful while still reducing exposure to less profitable lines. Net Earned PremiumsNet earned premiums increased 3.7% to $22.8 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $22.0 million for the prior year period. Growth was limited by slightly higher reinsurance costs. The Company expects net earned premiums to increase throughout 2021 as the growth in gross written premiums achieved in the second half of 2020 and into 2021 continues to be earned ratably through the year. Commercial Lines Financial and Operational Review Commercial Lines Financial Review Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 2020 % Change (dollars in thousands) Gross written premiums$27,221 $23,444 16.1% Net written premiums 21,557 19,687 9.5% Net earned premiums 20,706 20,431 1.3% Underwriting ratios: Loss ratio 81.7% 65.6% Expense ratio 44.6% 47.2% Combined ratio 126.3% 112.8% Contribution to combined ratio from net (favorable) adverse prior year development 24.9% 17.9% Accident year combined ratio (1) 101.4% 94.9% (1) The accident year combined ratio is the sum of the loss ratio and the expense ratio, less changes in net ultimate loss estimates from prior accident year loss reserves. The accident year combined ratio provides management with an assessment of the specific policy year's profitability and assists management in their evaluation of product pricing levels and quality of business written. The Company’s commercial lines of business, representing 89.6% of total gross written premium in the first quarter of 2021, primarily consists of property and liability coverage offered to owner-operated small- to mid-sized businesses. Commercial lines gross written premium increased 16.1% in the first quarter of 2021 to $27.2 million, as the Company continues to emphasize growth of its specialty lines business. The Commercial lines combined ratio was 126.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to 112.8% in the prior year period. The loss ratio was 81.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared with 65.6% in the prior year period while the expense ratio was 44.6% in the current year period, compared with 47.2% during the prior year period. Winter Storm Uri (or “URI”), for the three months ended March 31, 2021, increased the accident year loss ratio in the Commercial lines segment by 8.2 percentage points. Excluding URI, the accident year loss ratio would have been 48.6%. Similarly, the Commercial lines accident year combined ratio was 8.7 percentage point higher for the quarter because of URI, and would have been 92.7% excluding the impact of Winter Storm Uri. Personal Lines Financial and Operational Review Personal Lines Financial Review Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 2020 % Change (dollars in thousands) Gross written premiums$3,152 $1,640 92.2% Net written premiums 2,926 1,364 114.5% Net earned premiums 2,129 1,586 34.2% Underwriting ratios: Loss ratio 111.0% 49.8% Expense ratio 43.8% 47.1% Combined ratio 154.8% 96.9% Contribution to combined ratio from net (favorable) adverse prior year development 28.2% 4.0% Accident year combined ratio 126.6% 92.9% Personal lines, representing 10.4% of total gross written premium for the first quarter of 2021, consists largely of low-value dwelling homeowner’s insurance. Personal lines gross written premium increased 92.2% to $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year period, led by growth in the Company’s low-value dwelling line of business in Texas following Winter Storm Uri. Personal lines combined ratio was 154.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to 96.9% in the prior year period. Personal lines loss ratio was 111.0%, compared to 49.8% in the prior year period, largely driven by losses associated with Winter Storm Uri. Winter Storm Uri, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, increased the accident year loss ratio in the Personal lines segment by 21.8 percentage points. Excluding Uri, the accident year loss ratio would have been 61.0%. Similarly, the Personal lines accident year combined ratio was 22.7 percentage points higher for the quarter because of URI, and would have been 103.9% excluding the impact of Winter Storm Uri.

Through its operating subsidiaries, Conifer offers customized coverage solutions tailored to the needs of our specialty niche insureds. Across all 50 states, we utilize a multi-channel distribution approach, but largely market through independent agents. Conifer is traded on the Nasdaq Global Market (Nasdaq: CNFR), and additional information is available on the Company’s website at www.CNFRH.com. Definitions of Non-GAAP MeasuresConifer prepares its public financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). Statutory data is prepared in accordance with statutory accounting rules as defined by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' (NAIC) Accounting Practices and Procedures Manual, and therefore is not reconciled to GAAP data. We believe that investors’ understanding of Conifer’s performance is enhanced by our disclosure of adjusted operating income. Our method for calculating this measure may differ from that used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. We define adjusted operating income (loss), a non-GAAP measure, as net income (loss) excluding net realized investment gains or losses, changes in fair value of equity securities, and other gains or losses; all net of tax. We use adjusted operating income as an internal performance measure in the management of our operations because we believe it gives our management and other users of our financial information useful insight into our results of operations and our underlying business performance.
