The Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC), by letter dated February 16, 2012, advised Donegal Group Inc. (DGI) that the SEC staff would not recommend enforcement action to the SEC if DGI omits stockholder proposals regarding a potential sale or merger of DGI from the proxy materials for DGIs 2012 annual meeting of stockholders. Accordingly, DGI will not include the stockholder proposals in the proxy statement for its April 19, 2012 annual meeting of stockholders.
In addition, Donegal Mutual Insurance Company (Donegal Mutual), which owns approximately two-thirds of the aggregate voting power of the outstanding Class A common stock and the outstanding Class B common stock of DGI, informed DGI that if DGI were to include the putative stockholder proposals in the proxy statement for DGIs 2012 annual meeting of stockholders, Donegal Mutual would have voted against the stockholder proposals.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
