Residential Earthquake Written Premium Distribution - Exhibit B

Exhibit B is comprised of total direct written premiums for California Earthquake Authority (CEA) companies and Non-CEA companies. Since 1996, the CEA market share has decreased to 66% in 2000 - a decrease of eight (8) percentage points. In 1998, two new non-CEA companies began writing Earthquake coverage exclusively, which could explain the increase in premium for non-CEA companies.
