Kemper Corporation Estimates Second Quarter 2016 Catastrophe Losses; Announces Schedule for Second Quarter Earnings Call

CHICAGO--()--Kemper Corporation (NYSE: KMPR) announced today that it estimates that its second quarter 2016 results will include pre-tax catastrophe losses of approximately $52 million. The company does not expect to recover any of these losses under its catastrophe reinsurance program.

Following their publication, these documents will be available on the investor section of kemper.com.

Kemper will host its conference call to discuss second quarter 2016 results on Friday, August 5, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern (10:00 a.m. Central).
