Meanwhile, Progressive noted: “In October 2023, we converted our monthly accounting closing calendar to align with the Gregorian calendar.

“We do not expect that this change will have a material impact on our reported quarterly and annual underwriting results, but it may impact our year-over-year comparisons on monthly results from October 2023 through September 2024.

“Therefore, during this time period, we have modified and limited the content of the earnings release, compared to our historical reporting.”
