                                ANNOUNCES
                WFG NATIONAL TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY
                  Underwriter for Minnesota and North Dakota

Effective January 10, 2011, Attorneys Title Guaranty Fund, Inc. signed an agreement
with WFG National Title Insurance Company (Columbia, South Carolina) to be our new
underwriter in Minnesota and North Dakota. WFG is a subsidiary of Williston Financial
Group, led by President/CEO Patrick Stone, with national headquarters in Lake Oswego,
Oregon.

What does that mean for you? BUSINESS AS USUAL. You will receive the same
personalized support you are accustomed to from Attorneys Title.

WFG’s Demotech rating is A’ (A Prime) unsurpassed. This level is assigned to only
insurers who possess unsurpassed financial stability related to maintaining positive
surplus as regards policyholders, liquidity of invested assets, an acceptable level of
financial leverage, reasonable loss and loss adjustment expense reserves and realistic
pricing.

WFG National Title operates in 34 states. WFG has fully acceptable ALTA policies and
is fully qualified to do business in the states of Minnesota and North Dakota, having met
all Insurance Department financial responsibility requirements.

Effective March 1, 2011 our arrangement with Old Republic National Title Insurance
Company will terminate. We appreciate their working with us on an interim basis after
Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund of Florida was no longer able to be our underwriter.

Agents of Attorneys Title Guaranty Fund, Inc. are eligible for an appointment by WFG.
When an application for appointment is approved, and an Agency Agreement is executed,
you will receive a starter pack of forms and necessary information from WFG.

Attached hereto are an Application and a sample copy of the Agency Agreement. Please
fill out the Application ASAP and send it to the Minneapolis office by fax or U.S. Mail.
Time, again, is of the essence.

Any Old Republic National Title Insurance Company Commitments issued and closed
prior to March 1, 2011, will be issued on Old Republic policy forms. You will continue
to send your transmittal forms, premium remittance checks along with copies of the
policy and commitment to Denver as usual.
Make sure you have all your Old Republic policies processed by March 1, 2011.
If you have issued Old Republic Commitments that have not or will not close by March
1, 2011 you will be receiving a directive on that subject shortly.

Be sure to check your e-mail and our web site (www.atgf.net) often in the following
weeks, as we will be giving you updated information as it is received.
Attorneys Title’s network is comprised of licensed attorney agents (large and small) who
are not required to meet overwhelming quotas, unlike most other title companies. Our
ongoing bar-related® mission continues to preserve the attorney’s role in the practice of
real estate law. The important combination of your attorney expertise, Attorneys Titles’
personalized services, and an underwriter with an unsurpassed rating, will provide you
with the tools necessary to offer your clients the most complete package, when protecting
their most important financial investment.

We do appreciate your timely response.

Call the Minneapolis office with any questions.

Thank you!
