Form 8-K for BALDWIN & LYONS INC


1-Nov-2012

Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

The following information, including the Exhibit to this Form 8-K, is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 - Results of Operations and Financial Condition of Form 8-K and is being presented under Item 7.01 of Form 8-K. This information is not deemed to be "filed" for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is not incorporated by reference into any Securities Act registration statements.

On November 1, 2012, Baldwin & Lyons, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release announcing the results of its operations for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and incorporated by reference to this Item 9.01 as if fully set forth herein.

Throughout its press release and in the conference call to discuss the results of its operations for the third quarter of 2012, the Company presents and will present its results and operations in the manner it believes will be the most meaningful, which includes some measures that are not based on accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).

The Company's management uses the term operating revenue, a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as revenue excluding pre-tax investment gains and losses. It also uses the term operating income which is defined as net income excluding after tax investment gains and losses. These financial measures are used to evaluate the Company's performance because the recognition of investment gains and losses in any given period is largely discretionary as to timing and could distort the analysis of trends. The Company believes that the defined terms are used commonly in the property/casualty insurance industry and that equity analysts and the Company's significant shareholders exclude gains and losses on investments in their analysis of the Company's results for the same reason.

The combined ratios and the components thereof, as presented herein, are commonly used in the property/casualty insurance industry and are applied to the Company's GAAP underwriting results.

A copy of this press release is also posted on the Company's website.
