| Amerisafe is an insurance holding company.

Co. provides coverage to employers under state and federal workers' compensation laws, which prescribe wage replacement and medical care benefits that employers are obligated to provide to their injured employees in the course and scope of their employment. Co.'s workers' compensation insurance policies provide benefits to injured employees for, among other things, temporary or permanent disability, death and medical and hospital expenses. We show 40 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AMSF shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AMSF market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AMSF market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AMSF's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of AMSF versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AMSF market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like AMSF can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AMSF by allowing them to research the AMSF market cap history.
