Bishop, AMP EVP Jamie Novakowski Director National Relocation Services STAFFING 431 employees CONTACT INFORMATION 31440 Northwestern Highway, Suite 100, Farmington Hills, MI 48334 Phone: 248.594.3839 Email: Website: CORPORATE PROFILE ATA National Title Group is a full-service title insurance agency providing comprehensive title and settle- ment services to companies and individuals involved in real estate transactions. It is licensed to issue title insurance in 28 states and, through partnering relationships, offers title and settlement services in all 50 states. It additionally maintains 43 offices, staffed by 431 employees, located throughout the states of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. ATA brands also include Greco Title Agency, Midstate Title Agency, Seaver Title Agency, and Talon Title Agency. COMPANY HISTORY Founded in 1999, ATA was initially created to provide centralized title searches, insurance, and settlement services to lenders and investors engaged in manag- ing defaulted mortgage secured loans. In an effort to diversify its business base, ATA acquired the opera- tions or branches of over 15 companies located in the Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan markets. In 2008 it acquired the bulk of the operations of the former Midstate Title Company and its newly formed Midstate Title Agency subsidiary services customers throughout mid and western Michigan. In 2009, ATA acquired the assets of the former Philip R. Seaver Title Company, and in 2010 it acquired the assets of the for- mer Philip F. Greco Title Company, two of the largest and most widely respected title insurance agencies in the Midwest. ATA's Seaver Title and Greco Title units now service customers seamlessly throughout south- eastern Michigan. In 2012, ATA acquired the assets of the former Talon Title Agency of Central Ohio, Inc. and in 2013, formed Attorneys Title Agency of Indiana, LLC. Both of these additions enable ATA to service customers in the Ohio and Indiana markets. In 2014, it opened an office in Tinley Park, a suburb of Chicago. That diversification, however, never changed ATA's core competency–providing superlative centralized services at a single point of entry to support its lender customer group. To further that mission, ATA has rolled out its National Lender Services Division (NLS) to leverage the experi- ence and expertise of its one-stop default service group. Through direct operations or vendor partner- ships, NLS can provide a full array of refinance, de- fault, and title curative services throughout the country. This combination of Midwestern-based direct opera- tions and national service components comprises the ATA National Title Group. REGULATORY COMPLIANCE: SOC 1 type II certification, Best Practices, ALTA certification BUSINESS LINES, SERVICES, AND PRODUCTS KEY FEATURES/BENEFITS The accomplished staff at ATA National Title Group have successfully handled thousands of transactions. They are experienced, understand the title business, and are proud of their ability to apply that experience on behalf of their clients. Recognizing that customer service and satisfaction will always be the principal objective, they have structured the company to best accommodate those goals. Their large staff, and multi-office locations, allow them to of- fer a remarkable depth of service, and they constantly emphasize timely, responsive, and accurate support and attention. COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE Size and financial strength; commitment to excellence; and unparalleled experience in servicing REO, com- mercial, conventional residential, and all other types of real estate transactions. ATA National Title Group is an ideal partner for anyone seeking a premier national title, curative, and settlement service solution. ADDED VALUE TO CLIENTS ATA's ongoing commitment to exceed industry stan- dards for compliance and the ability to provide custom- ized solutions to fit client's needs.

The agency's core values are centered on a profound respect for the industry, for its clients, and for ATA employees. While customers are drawn to ATA's well- earned reputation for experienced personal service, the agency's stability, reliability, and financial strength are appealing assets. ATA's ability to maintain its strong market foothold—and continue a steady growth pattern—is a promising indicator of long-term strength and stability.
