STEWART INFORMATION SERVICES' TITLE INSURERS RECEIVE A' RATING

 HOUSTON, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Stewart Information Services Corporation's (NASDAQ-NMS: SISC) two title insurers, Stewart Title Guaranty Company and Stewart Title Insurance Company, have each received a financial stability rating of A' from Demotech, Inc.
 Only 11 of the 85 title insurers rated by Demotech received an A' rating. One company not active in the direct issuance of title policies received the higher A" rating. An A" rating is an insurer that exhibits low levels of financial leverage and insurance exposure.
 Demotech describes its A' rating as follows: "Title insurers earning a financial stability rating of A' possess unsurpassed financial stability related to the payment of loss and loss adjustment expenses. In most situations, the difference between a title insurer earning a financial stability rating of A" and A' is related to the dollar amount of policyholders' surplus available as a safety margin."
 Stewart's primary business is title insurance. The company issues policies through over 2,850 issuing locations on homes and other real property in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, Mexico, Belize (reinsurance), the Bahamas, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Stewart also sells computer-related services and information, as well as mapping products and geographic information to government and private entities, both domestic and foreign.
