ARTICLE 2 — RETENTION BY COMPANY

It is agreed that the amount or amounts of the Reinsurers’ liability hereunder in respect of any losses shall not be increased by reason of the inability of the Company to collect from any other Reinsurers whether specific or general, any amount or amounts which may have become due from them whether such inability arises from the insolvency of such other Reinsurers or otherwise.
ARTICLE 3 — REINSURANCE PREMIUM
(a)   The Reinsurers’ premium for the reinsurance provided under this Contract shall be computed by the application of a rate of .003% to the Company’s net premium written on the business covered under Exhibits “A” and “B” subject to an annual minimum premium of $60,000 and an annual deposit premium of $67,500 for the combined Sixth Excess of Loss layer provided under Exhibits “A” and “B”.

The Company shall have the right, before the happening of the accident or occurrence to waive its right of subrogation.

In the event of the insolvency of the Company, the liquidator or receiver or statutory successor of the Company shall give written notice of the pendency of each claim against the Company on a policy or bond reinsured within a reasonable time after such claim is filed in the insolvency proceeding; and during the pendency of such claim, the Reinsurers may investigate such claim and interpose, at their own expense, in the proceeding where such claim is to be adjudicated any defense or defenses which it may deem available to the Company, its liquidator or receiver or statutory successor. The expense thus incurred by the Reinsurers shall be chargeable, subject to court approval, against the Company as a part of the expense of liquidation to the extent of such proportionate share of the benefit as shall accrue to the Company solely as a result of the defense undertaken by the Reinsurers.
This reinsurance shall be payable as hereinbefore in the above paragraph provided except as otherwise provided by Section 315 (relating to Fidelity and Surety Risks) of the Insurance Law of New York or except (a) where the Contract specifically provides another payee of such reinsurance in the event of the insolvency of the Company and (b) where the Reinsurers with the consent of the direct insured or insureds have assumed such policy obligations of the Reinsurers to the payees under such policies and in substitution for the obligations of the Company to such payees.
ARTICLE 9 — ARBITRATION
As a condition precedent to any right of action hereunder, any dispute arising out of this Agreement shall be submitted to the decision of a board of arbitration composed of two arbitrators and an umpire, meeting in Boston, Massachusetts unless otherwise agreed.

Each party shall appoint its arbitrator and the two arbitrators shall choose an umpire before instituting the hearing. In the event that either party should fail to choose an arbitrator within thirty (30) days following a written request by the other party to enter upon arbitration, the requesting party may choose two arbitrators who shall in turn choose an umpire before entering upon arbitration. In the event the two arbitrators fail to agree on an umpire either party shall have the right to submit the matter to the American Arbitration Association in effect at that time.
Each party shall present its case to the arbitrators within sixty (60) days following the date of their appointment. The board shall make its decision with regard to the custom and usage of the insurance and reinsurance business.

Each party shall bear the expense of its own arbitrator and shall jointly and equally bear with the other party the expense of the umpire. The remaining costs of the arbitration proceedings shall be allocated by the board.
ARTICLE 10 — OFFSET CLAUSE

ARTICLE 11 — ADVANCES
If the Reinsurer is unauthorized in any State of the United States of America or the District of Columbia where authorization is required by insurance regulatory authorities, the Reinsurers will fund (provided particulars are received forty-five days prior to the date funding is required by the Company) outstanding losses by either cash advances, escrow accounts for the benefit of the Company, Letters of Credit, or a combination thereof, if a penalty would accrue to the Company on its statement without such funding. The Reinsurers shall have the sole option of determining the method of funding referred to above provided it is acceptable to the insurance regulatory authorities involved.
LOSS RESERVES: (U.S. Dollar Reinsurance Letter of Credit) (Applies only to those Reinsurers who are domiciled outside the United States of America who cannot qualify for credit by the State having jurisdiction over the Company’s loss reserves).

All salvages, recoveries and payments recovered or received subsequent to a loss settlement under this Exhibit shall be applied as if recovered or received prior to the said settlement and all necessary adjustments shall be made by the parties hereto.
SECTION 9 — COMMUTATION
  A.   At any time subsequent to two years after the date of notice to the Reinsurers of an accident or occurrence which may involve this Exhibit, representatives of the parties shall, at the request of either of them, meet in Boston, Massachusetts, for the purpose of appraising the Reinsurers’ ultimate liability to the Company under this Exhibit on account of the claims resulting from such accident or occurrence. The value of the Company’s incurred losses from such claims shall be calculated as of a date certain not more than 45 days after the date the appraisal begins. In such calculation, the value of each case as of such date shall be determined based upon a rate of discount to be mutually agreed and by the use of the latest available remarriage, survivorship, and mortality tables to determine probabilities of remarriage and normal life expectancies.


 

-5-

  B.   If the parties agree as to the amount of the Reinsurers’ ultimate liability to the Company on account of the claims resulting from such accident or occurrence, the Reinsurers shall, on or before the date as of which the claims were valued, redeem their liability hereunder by the payment of such amount to the Company.
 
  C.   If the parties cannot, at such first appraisal, reach an agreement as to the amount of the Reinsurers’ ultimate liability to the Company on account of such accident or occurrence, settlement hereunder shall be deferred for one year, when a second appraisal of the amount due the Company from the Reinsurers shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph A of this Section. If the parties then agree as to the amount of the Reinsurers’ ultimate liability to the Company on account of such accident or occurrence, settlement shall be made as outlined in Paragraph B of this Section.
 
  D.   If the parties do not reach an agreement as a result of the second appraisal, settlement hereunder shall be deferred for another year, at the end of which a third and last such appraisal of the Reinsurers’ ultimate liability to the Company shall be made. If, as a result of such appraisal, the parties agree on the amount of the Reinsurers’ ultimate liability to the Company, settlement will be made as provided in Paragraph B of this Section. If they do not reach an agreement as a result of such third appraisal, the amount of the Reinsurers’ liability to the Company on account of such accident or occurrence shall promptly be determined by arbitration, in accordance with Article 9 of the Contract. The arbitrators, in determining the value of the claims against the Company on account of such accident or occurrence, shall follow the provisions of Paragraph A of this Section. The amount, if any, determined by the arbitration to be due the Company from the Reinsurers shall be paid in the manner provided in Paragraph B of this Section.
This Exhibit B is attached to and forms part of the Workers’ Compensation and General Liability Sixth Excess of Loss Reinsurance Contract issued to LIBERTY MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY and LIBERTY MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY.
