HAMILTON, Bermuda, Feb. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Maiden Holdings, Ltd. (Nasdaq:MHLD) ("Maiden" or "the Company") today reported fourth quarter 2013 net operating earnings(1) of $23.3 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share compared with a loss of $10.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share in the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income attributable to Maiden common shareholders totaled $20.8 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss attributable to Maiden common shareholders of $10.3 million or $0.14 per share in the fourth quarter of 2012. 

Commenting on the Company's results, Art Raschbaum, Chief Executive Officer of Maiden, said: "The strong operating results in the fourth quarter and throughout 2013 reflect a focus on continued underwriting discipline, a significant level of organic growth despite the termination of the NGHC quota share, and steady growth in invested assets. We are gratified by the continued growth in new client relationships as well as the expansion of many existing client relationships, a testament to the Maiden team's strong client focus.   Importantly, we believe that Maiden is well positioned for future growth and profitability after completing two strategic capital market transactions in the fourth quarter, as well as the repurchase of all of our outstanding 14% TRUPs in January 2014, which significantly decreases our forward cost of capital in 2014 and beyond.   Continued growth in invested assets, a lower cost of capital, the Company's continued focus on operating efficiency and underwriting discipline, and a highly differentiated business model should enable us to further enhance operating performance in 2014 and beyond. The entire Maiden team looks forward to meeting the challenges of 2014 with an emphasis on continuing to provide outstanding support for our clients, while delivering value to our shareholders."
