CHAIRMAN’S STATEMENT I am pleased to report that 2012 was a year of consolidation for the NAGICO Group. There was considerable expansion territorially in 2011 which led to a planned increased premium income for 2012. I have observed that in both Europe and America the number of Insurance Companies has declined dramatically in the last two decades due to the fact that only the fittest could survive. Indeed, here in the Caribbean quite rightly, regulators have become more demanding which in itself is increasing the costs to all insurance companies and the consumers. At NAGICO we believe we have the best IT systems, a full range of products and a strong balance sheet. These are the factors I believe that will continue to drive NAGICO forward in even the toughest market conditions. We are smarte r today becau se of lessons the past. Our from financial integ rity is solid be we respond to cause current marke t trends. Our future is secu re because of the futures we secure for oth ers. I would like at this point to thank NAGICO’s dedicated Management Team who have taken the Company through the expansion program which it has deliberately embarked on in the last few years. I and my fellow board members believe in NAGICO’s corporate plan and we believe we have the correct management and capital base to take us forward as one of the strongest Insurance Companies in the region. We therefore look forward to serving our customers all over the Caribbean with even better service and the right products at the right price whilst maintaining the highest financial standards of any insurance institution in the region.

CEO’S STATEMENT The Macro Economic conditions in 2012 in most of the islands where we operate were not conducive to growth or profits. In addition the political situation has been unstable, resulting in changes in Governments on several islands. However, I am pleased to state that the NAGICO Group continues to grow and generate acceptable returns. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary in 2012 and having been the CEO from inception, I am proud to say that we marked the occasion with historic achievements. LEADERSHIP ose who know True leadership comes from th over their own how to motivate others to disc an merely leading pathways to success rather th them there by the hand. NAGICO commenced operations on St. Maarten in 1982 with a mere US$75,000 in paid in capital. By the end of 2012, the enclosed financial statement shows premium income of over US$108 million, assets of over US$170 million and net assets of over US$77 million. 2012 was a particularly good year with earnings surpassing US$10 million, mainly from operating income, but also from asset revaluation in accordance with IFRS rules. The above results justify NAGICO’s strategy of growth, profitability and spreading risks by expanding in new markets. In 2012, we acquired majority shares in VINSURE, a leading insurer in St. Vincent, established offices in Grenada and the Bahamas and strengthened our management structure. We continue to place emphasis on education and now have over 20 qualified Chartered Insurers and Accountants and established the NAGICO Information Technology Centre (NITC) in the Dominican Republic to enhance our state of the art Insurance Software programs. I take this opportunity to recognize and thank our Shareholders, Management, Staff, Directors, Agents, Brokers, Reinsurers and many Associates who have been instrumental in our phenomenal success. Imran McSood Amjad, ACII NAGICO Group Chief Executive Officer May 31, 2013 Whilst there will be many challenges, we look to the future with great optimism, certain in our quest for growth, profits and excellence. 9
CFO’S STATEMENT Financial Results NAGICO’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2012 have shown significant improvements in the Group’s performance with an increase in net profit before taxation of $11 million compared to $5 million in the previous year; this represents an increase of $6 million or 120% which was mainly attributed to the growth in insurance premium revenue which increased to $109 million or 28% over the previous year and a relatively stable loss ratio of 34%. Additionally, during 2012, we have experienced growth in our investment income of $2 million and other operational income of $5 million. Our reputation is carried on th e voices of those we serv e well. It lights our path into new markets and lays the fo undation for o continued suc ur cess and secu re position in Caribbean. the REPUTATION We have continued to be conservative in our investment approach as proven by our investment securities amounting to $61 million which primarily comprised government securities and term deposits. NAGICO continues to be a very liquid group with liquid assets accounting for approximately 69% of the investment portfolio and 55% of total net assets which is mainly due to the retention of capital since the shareholders of the Group have a “no dividend” policy. Consequently, the Group continues to be solvent and maintain adequate risk-adjusted capitalization for its current business profiles. Overall, total assets and equity have grown to $170 million and $77 million respectively. Outlook Given the changes we have seen within the various governments throughout the region, regulators, consumer spending and the global economy, we are introducing new financial measures to become more efficient and effective, thereby avoiding any significant adverse effect on the Group and staff as we strongly believe that our human resources are our most valuable asset. Therefore, for 2013, the Group has budgeted further growth in our operating results which we plan to achieve through a number of cost cutting measures and through growing our new operations within the developing and new markets which we operate. 11 Justin Woods Chief Financial Officer May 31, 2013
STATEMENT OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE The NAGICO Group and its subsidiaries now undertake operations in 19 jurisdictions throughout the Caribbean region, of which 18 involve licensed insurance activities. Most jurisdictions have their own separate insurance regulatory body, as a result of which NAGICO is required to report to 15 different regulatory bodies. The two main home regulatory bodies are the Central Bank of Curaçao & St Maarten and the Anguilla Financial Services Commission. Other regulatory bodies include the Prudential Control Authority, part of the Banque de France based in Paris, covering NAGICO’s activities in French St Martin and the other French overseas territories and the Dutch Central Bank covering activities in the BES islands. It should be noted that the Dutch based regulatory bodies require NAGICO to have a Supervisory Board, made up entirely of independent board members. STRENGTH mmitment to Our strength is born from our co our resilience our community. It is evidence of ering events and to catastrophic weather, life-alt threaten our insurmountable challenges that customers’ way of life. John D.K. Lawrence Head of Group Compliance May 31, 2013 Given such diverse regulatory reporting, Corporate Governance and the related activity of internal and external Compliance have now taken on an even more important role within the Group. Basically Corporate Governance refers to the processes, structures and information, including accountability, used for directing and overseeing the management of an institution. A number of Caribbean regulators issue Corporate Governance Guidelines and the Group follows these very closely. Proactive corporate governance and compliance ongoing Group projects through 2012/2013 include review of the current senior management structure; establishment of a risk management program; putting in place a business continuity plan, given the ongoing possibility of a catastrophe occurrence in the region; strengthening existing internal audit and Audit Committee functions; reviewing how senior management reports to the various boards; maintaining more regular contact with regulatory bodies, including formal presentations; ensuring regulatory compliance by all NAGICO offices with local legislation and regulations; reviewing existing internal Anti Money Laundering manuals and procedures, particularly where long-term insurance is involved and which is more susceptible to AML risks. Finally NAGICO is reviewing the impact of a new insurance regulatory regime within the European Union, entitled Solvency II, which is scheduled to come into effect during 2014. This new regime will bring in more stringent reporting and compliance requirements. 13

Financial instruments Classification The Group’s non-derivative financial instruments comprise financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables (including fixed deposits), held to maturity instruments, and trade and other payables. Held-to-maturity assets If the Company has the intent and ability to hold debt securities to maturity, then such financial assets are classified as held to maturity. Held-to-maturity financial assets are recognized initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, held-to-maturity financial assets are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment losses. Held-to-maturity financial assets comprise debt securities. Interest on loans and receivables are included in the statement of comprehensive income and is reported as ‘Investment income’. Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss This category has two sub-categories: financial assets held for trading and those designated at fair value through profit or loss at inception. A financial asset is classified into the ‘financial assets at fair value through profit or loss’ category at inception if acquired principally for the purpose of selling in the short term, if it forms part of a portfolio of financial assets in which there is evidence of short-term profittaking, or if so designated by management. This includes investments in equities. period whether there is objective evidence that a financial asset or group of financial assets is impaired. Recognition and Measurement Financial assets are initially recognized at fair value plus, in the case of all financial assets not carried at fair value through profit or loss, transaction costs that are directly attributable to their acquisition. Financial assets carried at fair value through profit or loss are initially recognized at fair value, and transaction costs are expensed in the statement of profit or loss. Financial assets designated as at fair value through profit or loss at inception are those that are: Loans and receivables are carried at amortized cost using the effective interest method. • Other non-derivative financial instruments not measured at fair value are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment losses. Loans and Receivables Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market, and other than those that the Group intends to sell in the short term or that it has designated as at fair value through profit or loss. Receivables arising from insurance contracts are also classified in this category and are reviewed for impairment as part of the impairment review of loans and receivables. value basis to the Group’s key management personnel.

Assets that are part of these portfolios are designated upon initial recognition at fair value through profit or loss. • Held in internal funds to match insurance and investment contracts liabilities that are linked to the changes in fair value of these assets. The designation of these assets to be at fair value through profit or loss eliminates or significantly reduces a measurement or recognition inconsistency (sometimes referred to as ‘an accounting mismatch’) that would otherwise arise from measuring assets or liabilities or recognizing the gains and losses on them on different bases.
