Operating EPS excludes $0.14 per share of realized and unrealized capital losses. Premium Production: Net written premium growth of 4.3% modestly missed our 4.8% growth projection, almost entirely due to a decline in the Excess & Surplus Lines segment premium. Renewal pricing in the Standard Commercial segment increased 3.2% and retention improved slightly to 85%. Standard Commercial new business increased 9% versus 1Q17. Year-over- year new business increased 4% in Standard Personal while the Excess & Surplus Lines segment saw new business decline by 23% due to difficult market conditions.
