ASSURANCEAMERICA CORPORATION ANNOUNCES POSTPONEMENT OF THE
10,000-To-One REVERSE STOCK SPLIT
ATLANTA January 5, 2012
Atlanta based ASSURANCEAMERICA CORPORATION (the
Company) announced today that it is postponing the 10,000-to-one reverse stock split (the Reverse Stock Split) of the Companys common stock (the Common Stock) described in the Schedule 13E-3 Transaction
Statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 4, 2011 and amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto on November 18, 2011 (as so amended, the Schedule 13E-3), as well all the going private
transaction discussed therein.
Unusually high trading volume of the Common Stock since November 4, 2011 has resulted in a significant
increase in the number of shares of Common Stock held by stockholders who hold fewer than 10,000 shares of Common Stock (and, therefore, has resulted in a significant increase in the number of shares to be repurchased by the Company in the Reverse
Stock Split). Accordingly, consistent with the Schedule 13E-3, the Companys Board of Directors (the Board) has determined to postpone the Reverse Stock Split and the going private transaction because the aggregate cash payments to
stockholders necessary to complete the Reverse Stock Split is expected to significantly exceed the $500,000 which the Company was willing, and prepared, to pay.
The Board is evaluating its options and may determine to abandon the Reverse Stock Split and the going private transaction, or amend the terms thereof, if the Board determines doing so is in the best
interests of the Company and its stockholders. The Board expects to make such determination in the next forty five days.
