Triple-S Management Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2008 Results; Board Approves Share Repurchase Authorization of up to $40 Million

program, a tender offer or any other means. In the event that demand for the repurchase of Class A shares amounts to less than $40 million, the Board of Directors may use the balance of the $40 million share authorization to repurchase Class B shares on the open market.

Revised 2008 Guidance

The Company's 2008 revised outlook is as follows:

* Total medical enrollment is expected to grow approximately 4-4.5

percent, with Medicare Advantage enrollment rising approximately

47-52 percent, up from our previous estimate of 45-48 percent.

* Consolidated operating revenues are now anticipated to be

$1.73-$1.76 billion, an increase from our prior estimate of

$1.70-$1.74 billion.

* Consolidated loss ratio is expected to be 84.5-85.0 percent, a 100

basis point increase from previous guidance, with the managed care

MLR now ranging between 88.5-89.0 percent, driven largely by the

Company's Medicare dual eligible product.

* Consolidated operating expense ratio is unchanged and anticipated to

be approximately 14.7 percent.

* The Company reduced its earnings per share expectation to

$1.72-$1.82 from $1.88-$1.98, based on 32.2 million weighted average

diluted shares outstanding, which excludes net realized and

unrealized gains (losses) on investments and derivatives.
