21st Century Insurance Group, a Woodland Hills-based auto insurer, on Wednesday reported a threefold increase in second-quarter net income. Earnings rose to $29.2 million, or 34 cents a share, from $9.9 million, or 11 cents, a year earlier. However, $9.1 million of the increase represented a one-time gain from a favorable settlement with the IRS and other nonoperating profit.

Secretary of State Kevin Shelley on Monday called for an investigation by the state's Fair Political Practices Commission into nearly $1 million in hidden campaign donations from a Los Angeles insurance company to the California Republican Party and county GOP committees in the closing days of last year's election. Shelley, a Democrat, also said he will press to close what he called a loophole in campaign finance law that permitted 21st Century Insurance Group of Woodland Hills to cloak contributions it made to the state Republican Party on Oct. 21 until well after votes had been counted.
The chief executive of 21st Century Insurance Group has resigned as insurance behemoth and majority shareholder American International Group continued to strengthen its hold over the smaller Woodland Hills-based insurer. William L. Mellick, president of 21st Century since 1994 and its CEO since 1995, said in a statement released Monday that he is resigning his positions at the company and on its board, effective Feb. 4., to "pursue other business and personal interests."

AIG said it would pay $46 per American General share in the proposed all-stock deal, based on Tuesday's closing market price of AIG common stock. That values the deal at $23.1 billion.
