PartnerRe Ltd. (NYSE: PRE) today announced that the Company estimates the cost of the German Hailstorms in the last week of July 2013 will be between $50 million and $60 million pre-tax and net of retrocession and reinstatement premiums.

These losses will be recorded in the Company’s third quarter 2013 results. The majority of these losses are expected to impact the Company’s Catastrophe sub-segment.

The Company’s estimate of losses for these events is based on information received to date from the Company’s cedants, as well as analysis of the Company’s exposures. There is considerable uncertainty associated with any loss estimate. The ultimate loss, therefore, may differ materially from the current estimate.

The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, also offers capital markets products that include weather and credit protection to financial, industrial and service companies. Risks reinsured include property, casualty, motor, agriculture, aviation/space, catastrophe, credit/surety, engineering, energy, marine, specialty property, specialty casualty, multiline and other lines in its Non-life operations, mortality, longevity and accident and health in its Life and Health operations, and alternative risk products. For the year ended December 31, 2012, total revenues were $5.6 billion. At June 30, 2013, total assets were $22.6 billion, total capital was $7.2 billion and total shareholders’ equity attributable to PartnerRe was $6.4 billion.
