DALLAS, Texas — Beginning this week, New Mexico drivers will have access to high-quality, low-cost auto insurance from one of the nation’s fastest-growing insurance carriers. GAINSCO Auto Insurance (AMEX:GAN), which insures drivers across the Southern United States, has expanded its operations into New Mexico and will sell its personal auto policies through a network of independent insurance agents across the state.

GAINSCO specializes in minimum-limits personal auto insurance, which allows drivers to purchase the legally required insurance coverage at minimum cost.

Key benefits of GAINSCO’s insurance include:

    * No credit scoring
    * Competitive rates with low down payments
    * Coverage for drivers with no prior insurance
    * Coverage for drivers with previous accidents, tickets, or violations
    * Coverage for young drivers
    * Liability and physical damage coverage
    * Older vehicles accepted
    * Flexibility to exclude household members upon request
    * Instant SR-22s (proof of insurance required for drivers who have been ticketed for driving without insurance)

GAINSCO policies are sold only through independent agencies and serviced by bilingual claims and customer service representatives. In addition to its focus on minimum-limits coverage, GAINSCO caters to the Hispanic community, offering all claims and customer services in both Spanish and English.

The Company launched its presence in the state in partnership with independent agents who will represent the Company across 49 New Mexico communities. GAINSCO President and Chief Executive Officer, Glenn Anderson, expects the number of cities to grow to 75 or more by year’s end.

“We’re excited to add New Mexico to our growing southwestern footprint,” said Anderson. “Our goal is to build a long-term presence in the state and we’re excited that so many agency partners have come on board with us at the very beginning.”
