20\F7V1049 Page 3 Article 3 - Concurrency of Conditions A. It is agreed that this Contract will follow the terms, conditions, exclusions, definitions, warranties and settlements of the Company under the Original Contract, which are not inconsistent with the provisions of this Contract. B. The Company shall advise the Reinsurer of any material changes in the Original Contract which may affect the liability of the Reinsurer under this Contract.

Article 6 - Loss Notices and Settlements A. Whenever reinstatement premium settlements made by the Company under the First Excess Layer of the Original Contract appear likely to result in a claim hereunder, the Company shall notify the Reinsurer. The Company will advise the Reinsurer of all subsequent developments relating to such claims that, in the opinion of the Company, may materially affect the position of the Reinsurer. B. All reinstatement premium settlements made by the Company under the First Excess Layer of the Original Contract, provided they are within the terms of the Original Contract and within the terms of this Contract, shall be binding upon the Reinsurer, and the Reinsurer agrees to pay all amounts for which it may be liable within 10 days of receipt of reasonable evidence of the amount paid (or scheduled to be paid) by the Company. Article 7 - Late Payments A. The provisions of this Article shall not be implemented unless specifically invoked, in writing, by one of the parties to this Contract.
20\F7V1049 Page 4 B. In the event any premium, loss or other payment due either party is not received by the intermediary named in the Intermediary Article (hereinafter referred to as the "Intermediary") by the payment due date, the party to whom payment is due may, by notifying the Intermediary in writing, require the debtor party to pay, and the debtor party agrees to pay, an interest charge on the amount past due calculated for each such payment on the last business day of each month as follows: 1. The number of full days which have expired since the due date or the last monthly calculation, whichever the lesser; times 2. 1/365ths of the six-month United States Treasury Bill rate as quoted in The Wall Street Journal on the first business day of the month for which the calculation is made; times 3. The amount past due, including accrued interest. It is agreed that interest shall accumulate until payment of the original amount due plus interest charges have been received by the Intermediary. C. The establishment of the due date shall, for purposes of this Article, be determined as follows: 1. As respects the payment of routine deposits and premiums due the Reinsurer, the due date shall be as provided for in the applicable section of this Contract. In the event a due date is not specifically stated for a given payment, it shall be deemed due 30 days after the date of transmittal by the Intermediary of the initial billing for each such payment. 2. Any claim or loss payment due the Company hereunder shall be deemed due 10 days after the proof of loss or demand for payment is transmitted to the Reinsurer. If such loss or claim payment is not received within the 10 days, interest will accrue on the payment or amount overdue in accordance with paragraph B above, from the date the proof of loss or demand for payment was transmitted to the Reinsurer. 3. As respects any payment, adjustment or return due either party not otherwise provided for in subparagraphs 1 and 2 of this paragraph C, the due date shall be as provided for in the applicable section of this Contract. In the event a due date is not specifically stated for a given payment, it shall be deemed due 10 days following transmittal of written notification that the provisions of this Article have been invoked. For purposes of interest calculations only, amounts due hereunder shall be deemed paid upon receipt by the Intermediary. D. Nothing herein shall be construed as limiting or prohibiting a Subscribing Reinsurer from contesting the validity of any claim, or from participating in the defense of any claim or suit, or prohibiting either party from contesting the validity of any payment or from initiating any arbitration or other proceeding in accordance with the provisions of this Contract. If the debtor party prevails in an arbitration or other proceeding, then any interest charges due hereunder on the amount in dispute shall be null and void. If the debtor party loses in such proceeding, then the interest charge on the amount determined to be due hereunder shall be calculated in accordance with the provisions set forth above unless otherwise
20\F7V1049 Page 5 determined by such proceedings. If a debtor party advances payment of any amount it is contesting, and proves to be correct in its contestation, either in whole or in part, the other party shall reimburse the debtor party for any such excess payment made plus interest on the excess amount calculated in accordance with this Article. E. Interest charges arising out of the application of this Article that are $1,000 or less from any party shall be waived unless there is a pattern of late payments consisting of three or more items over the course of any 12-month period. Article 8 - Offset The Company and the Reinsurer may offset any balance or amount due from one party to the other under this Contract or any other contract heretofore or hereafter entered into between the Company and the Reinsurer, whether acting as assuming reinsurer or ceding company. The provisions of this Article shall not be affected by the insolvency of either party. Article 9 - Severability of Interests and Obligations The rights, duties and obligations set forth below shall apply as if this Contract were a separate contract between the Subscribing Reinsurers and each named reinsured company: A. Balances payable by any Subscribing Reinsurer to or from any reinsured party under the Contract shall not serve to offset any balances recoverable to, or from, any other reinsured party to the Contract and balances payable shall be separated by named reinsured company and paid directly to the appropriate named reinsured company’s bank account. B. Balances recoverable by any Subscribing Reinsurer to or from any reinsured party under the Contract shall not serve to offset any balances payable to, or from, any other reinsured party to the Contract. C. Reports and remittances made to the Reinsurer in accordance with the applicable articles of the Contract are to be in sufficient detail to identify both the Reinsurer's loss obligations due to each named reinsured company and each named reinsured company's premium remittance under the report. D. In the event of the insolvency of any of the parties to the Contract, offset shall be only allowed in accordance with the laws of the insolvent party's state of domicile. E. Nothing in this Article shall be construed to provide a separate retention, Reinsurer's limit of liability any one loss occurrence or Reinsurer's annual limit of liability for each named reinsured company. Article 10 - Access to Records The Reinsurer or its designated representatives shall have access at any reasonable time to all records of the Company which pertain in any way to this reinsurance, provided the Reinsurer gives the Company at least 15 days prior notice of request for such access. However, a
20\F7V1049 Page 6 Subscribing Reinsurer or its designated representatives shall not have any right of access to the records of the Company if it is not current in all undisputed payments due the Company. "Undisputed" as used herein shall mean any amount that the Subscribing Reinsurer has not contested in writing to the Company specifying the reason(s) why the payments are disputed. Article 11 - Errors and Omissions (BRMA 14F) Inadvertent delays, errors or omissions made in connection with this Contract or any transaction hereunder shall not relieve either party from any liability which would have attached had such delay, error or omission not occurred, provided always that such error or omission is rectified as soon as possible after discovery. Article 12 - Currency (BRMA 12A) A. Whenever the word "Dollars" or the "$" sign appears in this Contract, they shall be construed to mean United States Dollars and all transactions under this Contract shall be in United States Dollars. B. Amounts paid or received by the Company in any other currency shall be converted to United States Dollars at the rate of exchange at the date such transaction is entered on the books of the Company. Article 13 - Taxes (BRMA 50B) In consideration of the terms under which this Contract is issued, the Company will not claim a deduction in respect of the premium hereon when making tax returns, other than income or profits tax returns, to any state or territory of the United States of America or the District of Columbia. Article 14 - Federal Excise Tax (BRMA 17D) A. The Reinsurer has agreed to allow for the purpose of paying the Federal Excise Tax the applicable percentage of the premium payable hereon (as imposed under Section 4371 of the Internal Revenue Code) to the extent such premium is subject to the Federal Excise Tax. B. In the event of any return of premium becoming due hereunder the Reinsurer will deduct the applicable percentage from the return premium payable hereon and the Company or its agent should take steps to recover the tax from the United States Government. Article 15 - Reserves A. The Reinsurer agrees to fund its share of amounts, including but not limited to, the Company's ceded unearned premium and outstanding loss reserves (being the sum of all reinstatement premiums paid by the Company under the First Excess Layer of the Original
20\F7V1049 Page 7 Contract but not yet recovered from the Reinsurer, plus the Company's reserves for reinstatement premium due under the First Excess Layer of the Original Contract, if any) (hereinafter referred to as "Reinsurer's Obligations") by: 1. Clean, irrevocable and unconditional letters of credit issued and confirmed, if confirmation is required by the insurance regulatory authorities involved, by a bank or banks meeting the NAIC Securities Valuation Office credit standards for issuers of letters of credit and acceptable to said insurance regulatory authorities; and/or 2. Escrow accounts for the benefit of the Company; and/or 3. Cash advances; if the Reinsurer: 1. Is unauthorized in any state of the United States of America or the District of Columbia having jurisdiction over the Company and if, without such funding, a penalty would accrue to the Company on any financial statement it is required to file with the insurance regulatory authorities involved; or 2. Has an A.M. Best Company's rating equal to or below B++ at the inception of this Contract. The Reinsurer, at its sole option, may fund in other than cash if its method and form of funding are acceptable to the insurance regulatory authorities involved. B. With regard to funding in whole or in part by letters of credit, it is agreed that each letter of credit will be in a form acceptable to insurance regulatory authorities involved, will be issued for a term of at least one year and will include an "evergreen clause," which automatically extends the term for at least one additional year at each expiration date unless written notice of non-renewal is given to the Company not less than 30 days prior to said expiration date. The Company and the Reinsurer further agree, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Contract, that said letters of credit may be drawn upon by the Company or its successors in interest at any time, without diminution because of the insolvency of the Company or the Reinsurer, but only for one or more of the following purposes: 1. To reimburse itself for the Reinsurer's share of unearned premiums returned to insureds on account of policy cancellations, unless paid in cash by the Reinsurer; 2. To reimburse itself for the Reinsurer's share of reinstatement premiums paid by the Company under the terms of the First Excess Layer of the Original Contract, unless paid in cash by the Reinsurer; 3. To reimburse itself for the Reinsurer's share of any other amounts claimed to be due hereunder, unless paid in cash by the Reinsurer; 4. To fund a cash account in an amount equal to the Reinsurer's share of amounts, including, but not limited to, the Reinsurer's Obligations as set forth above, funded by means of a letter of credit which is under non-renewal notice, if said letter of credit has not been renewed or replaced by the Reinsurer 10 days prior to its expiration date;
20\F7V1049 Page 8 5. To refund to the Reinsurer any sum in excess of the actual amount required to fund the Reinsurer's share of amounts, including but not limited to, the Reinsurer's Obligations as set forth above, if so requested by the Reinsurer. In the event the amount drawn by the Company on any letter of credit is in excess of the actual amount required for B(1), B(2) or B(4), or in the case of B(3), the actual amount determined to be due, the Company shall promptly return to the Reinsurer the excess amount so drawn. Article 16 - Insolvency A. In the event of the insolvency of the Company, this reinsurance shall be payable directly to the Company or to its liquidator, receiver, conservator or statutory successor on the basis of the liability of the Company without diminution because of the insolvency of the Company or because the liquidator, receiver, conservator or statutory successor of the Company has failed to pay all or a portion of any claim. It is agreed, however, that the liquidator, receiver, conservator or statutory successor of the Company shall give written notice to the Reinsurer of the pendency of a claim against the Company indicating the policy or bond reinsured which claim would involve a possible liability on the part of the Reinsurer within a reasonable time after such claim is filed in the conservation or liquidation proceeding or in the receivership, and that during the pendency of such claim, the Reinsurer may investigate such claim and interpose, at its own expense, in the proceeding where such claim is to be adjudicated, any defense or defenses that it may deem available to the Company or its liquidator, receiver, conservator or statutory successor. The expense thus incurred by the Reinsurer shall be chargeable, subject to the approval of the Court, against the Company as part of the expense of conservation or liquidation to the extent of a pro rata share of the benefit which may accrue to the Company solely as a result of the defense undertaken by the Reinsurer. B. Where two or more Subscribing Reinsurers are involved in the same claim and a majority in interest elect to interpose defense to such claim, the expense shall be apportioned in accordance with the terms of this Contract as though such expense had been incurred by the Company. C. It is further understood and agreed that, in the event of the insolvency of the Company, the reinsurance under this Contract shall be payable directly by the Reinsurer to the Company or to its liquidator, receiver or statutory successor, except as provided by Section 4118(a) of the New York Insurance Law or except (1) where this Contract specifically provides another payee of such reinsurance in the event of the insolvency of the Company or (2) where the Reinsurer with the consent of the direct insured or insureds has assumed such policy obligations of the Company as direct obligations of the Reinsurer to the payees under such policies and in substitution for the obligations of the Company to such payees. Article 17 - Arbitration A. As a condition precedent to any right of action hereunder, in the event of any dispute or difference of opinion hereafter arising with respect to this Contract, it is hereby mutually
20\F7V1049 Page 9 agreed that such dispute or difference of opinion shall be submitted to arbitration. One Arbiter shall be chosen by the Company, the other by the Reinsurer, and an Umpire shall be chosen by the two Arbiters before they enter upon arbitration, all of whom shall be active or retired disinterested executive officers of insurance or reinsurance companies or Lloyd's London Underwriters. In the event that either party should fail to choose an Arbiter within 30 days following a written request by the other party to do so, the requesting party may choose two Arbiters who shall in turn choose an Umpire before entering upon arbitration. If the two Arbiters fail to agree upon the selection of an Umpire within 30 days following their appointment, each Arbiter shall nominate three candidates within 10 days thereafter, two of whom the other shall decline, and the decision shall be made by drawing lots. B. Each party shall present its case to the Arbiters within 30 days following the date of appointment of the Umpire. The Arbiters shall consider this Contract as an honorable engagement rather than merely as a legal obligation and they are relieved of all judicial formalities and may abstain from following the strict rules of law. The decision of the Arbiters shall be final and binding on both parties; but failing to agree, they shall call in the Umpire and the decision of the majority shall be final and binding upon both parties. Judgment upon the final decision of the Arbiters may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. C. If more than one Subscribing Reinsurer is involved in the same dispute, all such Subscribing Reinsurers shall, at the option of the Company, constitute and act as one party for purposes of this Article and communications shall be made by the Company to each of the Subscribing Reinsurers constituting one party, provided, however, that nothing herein shall impair the rights of such Subscribing Reinsurers to assert several, rather than joint, defenses or claims, nor be construed as changing the liability of the Subscribing Reinsurers participating under the terms of this Contract from several to joint. D. Each party shall bear the expense of its own Arbiter, and shall jointly and equally bear with the other the expense of the Umpire and of the arbitration. In the event that the two Arbiters are chosen by one party, as above provided, the expense of the Arbiters, the Umpire and the arbitration shall be equally divided between the two parties. E. Any arbitration proceedings shall take place at a location mutually agreed upon by the parties to this Contract, but notwithstanding the location of the arbitration, all proceedings pursuant hereto shall be governed by the law of the state in which the Company has its principal office. Article 18 - Service of Suit (BRMA 49C) (Applicable if the Reinsurer is not domiciled in the United States of America, and/or is not authorized in any State, Territory or District of the United States where authorization is required by insurance regulatory authorities) A. It is agreed that in the event the Reinsurer fails to pay any amount claimed to be due hereunder, the Reinsurer, at the request of the Company, will submit to the jurisdiction of a court of competent jurisdiction within the United States. Nothing in this Article constitutes or should be understood to constitute a waiver of the Reinsurer's rights to commence an action in any court of competent jurisdiction in the United States, to remove an action to a
20\F7V1049 Page 10 United States District Court, or to seek a transfer of a case to another court as permitted by the laws of the United States or of any state in the United States. B. Further, pursuant to any statute of any state, territory or district of the United States which makes provision therefor, the Reinsurer hereby designates the party named in its Interests and Liabilities Agreement, or if no party is named therein, the Superintendent, Commissioner or Director of Insurance or other officer specified for that purpose in the statute, or his successor or successors in office, as its true and lawful attorney upon whom may be served any lawful process in any action, suit or proceeding instituted by or on behalf of the Company or any beneficiary hereunder arising out of this Contract. Article 19 - Severability (BRMA 72E) If any provision of this Contract shall be rendered illegal or unenforceable by the laws, regulations or public policy of any state, such provision shall be considered void in such state, but this shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Contract or the enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction. Article 20 - Governing Law (BRMA 71B) This Contract shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida. Article 21 - Confidentiality A. The Reinsurer hereby acknowledges that the documents, information and data provided to it by the Company, whether directly or through an authorized agent, in connection with the placement and execution of this Contract, including all information obtained through any audits and any claims information between the Company and the Reinsurer, and any submission or other materials relating to any renewal (hereinafter referred to as "Confidential Information") are proprietary and confidential to the Company. B. Except as provided for in paragraph C below, the Reinsurer shall not disclose any Confidential Information to any third parties, including but not limited to the Reinsurer's subsidiaries and affiliates, other insurance companies and their subsidiaries and affiliates, underwriting agencies, research organizations, any unaffiliated entity engaged in modeling insurance or reinsurance data, and statistical rating organizations. C. Confidential Information may be used by the Reinsurer only in connection with the performance of its obligations or enforcement of its rights under this Contract and will only be disclosed when required by (1) retrocessionaires subject to the business ceded to this Contract, (2) regulators performing an audit of the Reinsurer's records and/or financial condition, (3) external auditors performing an audit of the Reinsurer's records in the normal course of business, or (4) the Reinsurer's legal counsel; provided that the Reinsurer advises such parties of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and their obligation to maintain its confidentiality. The Company may require that any third-party representatives of the Reinsurer agree, in writing, to be bound by this Confidentiality Article
20\F7V1049 Page 11 or by a separate written confidentiality agreement, containing terms no less stringent than those set forth in this Article. If a third-party representative of the Reinsurer is not bound, in writing, by this Confidentiality Article or by a separate written confidentiality agreement, the Reinsurer shall be responsible for any breach of this provision by such third-party representative of the Reinsurer. D. Notwithstanding the above, in the event that the Reinsurer is required by court order, other legal process or any regulatory authority to release or disclose any or all of the Confidential Information, the Reinsurer agrees to provide the Company with written notice of same at least 10 days prior to such release or disclosure, to the extent legally permissible, and to use its best efforts to assist the Company in maintaining the confidentiality provided for in this Article. E. Any disclosure of Non-Public Personally Identifiable Information shall comply with all state and federal statutes and regulations governing the disclosure of Non-Public Personally Identifiable Information. "Non-Public Personally Identifiable Information" shall be defined as this term or a similar term is defined in any applicable state, provincial, territory, or federal law. Disclosing or using this information for any purpose not authorized by applicable law is expressly forbidden without the prior consent of the Company. F. The parties agree that any information subject to privilege, including the attorney-client privilege or attorney work product doctrine (collectively "Privilege") shall not be disclosed to the Reinsurer until, in the Company's opinion, such Privilege is deemed to be waived or otherwise compromised by virtue of its disclosure pursuant to this Contract. Furthermore, the Reinsurer shall not assert that any Privilege otherwise applicable to the Confidential Information has been waived or otherwise compromised by virtue of its disclosure pursuant to this Contract. G. The provisions of this Article shall extend to the officers, directors and employees of the Reinsurer and its affiliates, and shall be binding upon their successors and assigns. Article 22 - Non-Waiver The failure of the Company or Reinsurer to insist on compliance with this Contract or to exercise any right, remedy or option hereunder shall not: (1) constitute a waiver of any rights contained in this Contract, (2) prevent the Company or Reinsurer from thereafter demanding full and complete compliance, (3) prevent the Company or Reinsurer from exercising such remedy in the future, nor (4) affect the validity of this Contract or any part thereof. Article 23 - Agency Agreement (BRMA 73A) If more than one reinsured company is named as a party to this Contract, the first named company shall be deemed the agent of the other reinsured companies for purposes of sending or receiving notices required by the terms and conditions of this Contract, and for purposes of remitting or receiving any monies due any party.
