Ambac Financial Reports Impact Of Material Developments

Ambac Financial Group, Inc. (AMBC) said its subsidiary, Ambac Assurance Corporation or AAC, has provided updates regarding the implementation of the restructuring of a significant portion of its Puerto Rico exposure and the estimated impact of recent litigation developments on its representation and warranty subrogation recoverable. Both developments are expected to have a material effect on the company's first quarter consolidated financial results.
