1347 Property Insurance Holdings, Inc. Provides Update on Strategic Review Process and Announces Changes to the Board of Directors

TAMPA, Fla.--()--1347 Property Insurance Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIH) (“PIH” or “the Company”), a specialty property and casualty insurance holding company currently offering insurance to individual and commercial customers in Louisiana and Texas through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Maison Insurance Company, today announced that the Company has made significant progress in its strategic and capital allocation review and continues to evaluate various means of enhancing shareholder value.

The Company also announced that L. Christopher Saenger has resigned from the Company’s Board of Directors and that D. Kyle Cerminara has been appointed to the Board.

Gordon G. Pratt, Chairman of the Company, said, “We thank Chris for his service since the early days of PIH, including his role as our first Audit Committee Chairman. Chris played an important role in placing PIH on an independent footing, and his insights, counsel and leadership will be missed. It has been a privilege to work with him.

“At the same time, we welcome Kyle Cerminara to our Board. Kyle’s experience as a CEO, a Co-Chief Investment Officer, and a Director of several publicly traded companies will bring welcome additional perspective and insight for our Board.”

“Concerning our strategic and capital allocation review,” Mr. Pratt continued, “we have made excellent use of all of our resources--management, directors, outside modeling and statistical evaluation firms, and advisors—to further our goal of enhancing shareholder value. We will report the results of our review, along with our business and financial results for the full year, in March 2017.”

There can be no assurance that this strategic and capital allocation review will result in any specific action or outcome. The Company will comment further regarding this review in the announcement of its fourth quarter and year-end financial results, expected in March 2017.
