Uniqa Q1 profit jumps, premiums rise

VIENNA, May 17 (Reuters) - Austrian insurer Uniqa nearly doubled first-quarter earnings from ordinary activities to 116.8 million euros ($150.9 million) as premiums gained almost 10 percent, it said on Friday.

Excluding a gain of 49.1 million euros from selling hotel assets, profit rose 14 percent.

Its combined ratio, a measure of profitability in the property and accident segments, improved to 98.3 percent from 99.4 percent a year earlier.

Group embedded value after minorities swelled 86 percent to 2.86 billion euros in 2012, it said.
