Mexican court confirms ruling on ING claims dispute


Seguros ING S.A. de C.V., the insurance company of ING in Mexico, has been notified by a federal appellate court in Mexico City about a final ruling in the judicial process with regard to a civil claim involving the Mexican company Grupo Fertinal S.A. and certain affiliates.

According to this ruling, Grupo Fertinal has been awarded approximately USD94 million plus interest under the policy. Today’s ruling affirms the ruling of a lower court in December 2005 regarding interpretation of the parties’ insurance policy.

ING expects that the risk in the policy is adequately covered by provisions taken as well as reinsurance coverage.

As has previously been announced, Seguros ING S.A. de C.V has been involved in a judicial procedure with Grupo Fertinal S.A. since the hurricane ‘Juliette’ in September 2001 caused damage to mines of Fertinal in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.

The dispute involves what amounts are due for certain hurricane-related damages under the insurance policy issued to Fertinal. This is the final court ruling in the process.
