The Progressive Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)
Note 1 Basis of Presentation — The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Progressive Corporation and ARX Holding Corp. (ARX), and their respective wholly owned insurance and non-insurance subsidiaries and affiliates in which Progressive or ARX has a controlling financial interest. The Progressive Corporation owned 86.8% of the outstanding capital stock of ARX at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 and 68.9% at March 31, 2018. The increase in Progressive’s ownership of ARX since March 31, 2018 is primarily due to the minority ARX shareholders exercising their rights to put a portion of their shares, including exercised stock options to Progressive pursuant to the ARX stockholders’ agreement. See Note 12 – Redeemable Noncontrolling Interest for further discussion.
The consolidated financial statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments that, in the opinion of management, were necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for the period ended March 31, 2019, are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year. These consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto should be read in conjunction with Progressive’s audited financial statements and accompanying notes included in Exhibit 13 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 (2018 Annual Report to Shareholders).
