They primarily write marine, onshore energy, engineering and construction insurance, and a contractors' general liability program. As underwritten by Navigators, marine insurance includes hull, energy, liability and cargo; onshore energy primarily covers property damage with an emphasis on the oil and petrochemical sectors; and engineering and construction primarily covers construction projects including machinery, equipment and loss of use due to delays. " (11/9/2018) 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We view the agreement as fair for Navigators’ shareholders. However, Navigators has a 30-day window to seek competing proposals, and we believe the $70 purchase price leaves some room for a higher competing bid. We believe Navigators has an attractive global platform with a long-standing specialization in the marine insurance niche. Over the last two decades, the company has grown by expanding its products to a more diversified book of specialty insurance, including professional liability and assumed reinsurance products. We are making no changes to our estimates or Neutral rating." (8/22/2018) Has Navigators Group been receiving favorable news coverage?
