InsureRight Platform to Bolster Risk Selection and Pricing

®, an Insurity company, and provider of proprietary data,
analytics and predictive modeling for P/C insurers, today announced that
workers' compensation insurer, Utah
Business Insurance Co.
(UBIC), selected their InsureRight® Platform
to modernize underwriting capabilities. UBIC will utilize the Predict application
of Valen's platform to provide underwriters with increased visibility in
risk selection and pricing, allowing them to make improved policy
decisions with more efficiency.

"As a growing workers' compensation company, it is imperative that UBIC
be in the forefront of InsurTech," said Ron Nielsen, CEO of UBIC. "We
chose Valen as our partner because we believe Valen Analytics'
principles align with our own. It will help us to achieve profitable
growth, and to avoid the pitfalls of traditional class underwriting."

Valen's predictive model, built on the InsureRight Platform, will enable
the insurer to increase profitability, improve bind ratios, and target
new business opportunities. The platform is powered by Valen's
contributory database, representing the most robust purpose-built data
consortium for predictive analytics.

"UBIC selected Valen Analytics as our predictive model provider because
of their industry experience, knowledge, and customer service," said
Tyler Nielsen, Vice President of Operations at UBIC. "Using our
customized predictive model will further improve our underwriting
process by helping UBIC to more quickly and accurately respond to our
customers' needs."

"Workers' Compensation remains a highly competitive line that requires
insurers to innovate their underwriting processes to maintain and grow
profitability," said Dax Craig, CEO of Valen Analytics. "By providing
analytically-driven tools to their underwriters, UBIC is in an excellent
position to adequately price the policies that suit their risk appetite."
