On March 4, 2019, Atlas issued a press release announcing, among other things, that “[a]ctuarial work conducted in connection with year-end indicated a need to increase reserve estimates for unpaid losses due primarily to bodily injury claims from accident years 2016 and prior.” Specifically, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated that “[t]hese claims are showing higher severity and have been open for longer periods than we had estimated” and that Atlas had “strengthened reserves to account for the possibility of higher costs for the tail on these prior accident years.”
