Earthquake Policy Distribution - Exhibit D

Exhibit D illustrates the number of Earthquake (EQ) policies held by CEA and non-CEA Companies. The percentage of policies written through the CEA decreases every year and amounts to 66% of Earthquake policies written in 2000. Whereas the non-CEA companies remained relatively the same since 1997 - increasing approximately 1.6%. Note that while the number of actual CEA policies has declined, the premium has increased as shown in Exhibit B.
