"Since 1990, our market share has increased from 15.0 percent to its current level," said President Parker S. Kennedy. "We are extremely pleased with this latest gain in market share. Based upon 1993 statistics, we currently have the largest or second largest share of the title insurance market in 30 states and in the District of Columbia."
"We are proud of our operations across the country and their success in increasing our customer base," Kennedy continued. "It is gratifying to see such continued growth in market share without losing or reducing the high level of service we seek to provide all of our customers. Although there is short term uncertainty in the real estate and financial markets, we believe our market share position affords us the ability to maintain satisfactory profit levels throughout the year. The current improvement in our mix of orders to the more profitable residential and commercial transactions continues to support this expectation."
