ARTICLE VII

CEDING COMMISSION

A.
The Reinsurer shall allow the Company a provisional ceding commission of 32.0% of all Net Earned Premium ceded to the Reinsurer hereunder. The Company shall allow the Reinsurer return commission on return premiums at the same rate.

B.
The provisional commission allowed to the Company shall be adjusted periodically in accordance with the provisions set forth herein.




C.
The first adjustment period shall be from the inception date of this Agreement through December 31, 2010 and each subsequent 12 month period shall be a separate adjustment period, with the final separate adjustment period being a 14 month period (each an “Adjustment Period” and, collectively, “Adjustment Periods”). However, if this Agreement is terminated, the final adjustment period shall be from the beginning of the then current Adjustment Period through the date of termination if this Agreement is terminated on a “cutoff” basis or the end of the runoff period if this Agreement is terminated on a “runoff” basis. The first calculation of adjusted commission for an Adjustment Period shall be made as of the date that is 12 months after the end of such Adjustment Period (the “Initial Calculation Date”).

D.
The adjusted commission rate shall be calculated as follows and be applied to Net Earned Premium for the Adjustment Period under consideration:

1.
If the Actual Loss Ratio for the Adjustment Period is 64.5% or greater, the adjusted commission rate for the Adjustment Period under consideration shall be a minimum commission of 30.0%;

2.
If the Actual Loss Ratio for the Adjustment Period is less than 64.5%, but equal to or greater than 62.0%, the adjusted commission rate for such Adjustment Period under consideration shall be 32.5%, minus the difference in percentage points between 62.0% and the Actual Loss Ratio for such Adjustment Period;

3.
If the Actual Loss Ratio for the Adjustment Period is less than 62.0%, but greater than 60.0% the adjusted commission rate for such Adjustment Period under consideration shall be 32.5% plus the difference in percentage points between 62.0% and the Actual Loss Ratio for such Adjustment Period;

4.
If the Actual Loss Ratio for the Adjustment Period is 60.0% or less, the adjusted commission rate for such Adjustment Period shall be 34.5%.

For an abundance of clarity, an illustration of the sliding scale is attached as Exhibit A.

E.
The Reinsurer shall calculate and report the adjusted commission on Net Earned Premium within 30 days after the Initial Calculation Date, and within 30 days after the end of each subsequent calendar year thereafter with respect to each Adjustment Period until all losses subject hereto have been finally settled. Each such calculation shall be based on cumulative transactions hereunder from the beginning of each Adjustment Period under consideration through the date of adjustment. With respect to the first Adjustment Period, remittance of adjusted commission on Net Earned Premium, if any, shall commence 24 months after the end of the first Adjustment Period. With respect to all Adjustment Periods other than the first Adjustment Period, remittance of adjusted commission on Net Earned Premium, if any, shall be made



12 months after the end of the final Adjustment Period. If the adjusted commission on Net Earned Premium for the Adjustment Period under consideration, as of the date remittance is due, is less than commissions previously allowed by the Reinsurer on Net Earned Premium for the same Adjustment Period, the Company shall remit the difference to the Reinsurer on or before March 1, after receipt and verification of the Reinsurer’s report. If the adjusted commission on Net Earned Premium for the Adjustment Period under consideration as of the date remittance is due, is greater than commissions previously allowed by the Reinsurer on Net Earned Premium for the same Adjustment Period, the Reinsurer shall remit the difference to the Company on or before March 1, after receipt of the Company’s written verification of the Reinsurer’s report. For an abundance of clarity, an illustration of the timing of annual calculations and payments is attached as Exhibit B.

F.
It is expressly agreed that the ceding commission allowed the Company includes provision for all unallocated loss expenses, dividends, commissions, taxes (exclusive of Federal Excise Taxes), assessments and all other expenses of whatever nature, except allocated Loss Adjustment Expense.

IV.
The following sentence shall be added to the end of Item I. of Article XII:

For all purposes of this Agreement, with respect to all periods following January 1, 2012, it is understood that references to the Company Pool and retrocessions to the Company Pool shall no longer be deemed to be included in the Agreement as following such date, pursuant to the Amended & Restated Reinsurance Pooling Agreement dated January 1, 2012 among the affiliates of the Company, there is no longer any retrocession to the members of the Company Pool. All other references to the Company Pool following January 1, 2012 shall be deemed to be references to the Company.
