Willow Re Ltd. - Full details

Under the reinsurance agreement, the issuer will provide Allstate with up to $250 million of aggregate protection over a three-year period beginning June 15, 2007, when the event index value caused by a U.S. hurricane event occurring in the Northeast territory (defined as Connecticut, New Jersey and New York) exceeds a specific attachment point.

Calculation of the event index value amount is formula-driven, which takes into consideration specific state payout factors; the industry loss amount applicable to the covered event as published by the Property Claim Services (PCS), a provider of catastrophe information for the property/casualty insurance industry; and a pre-determined automobile loss gross-up factor.

In exchange for receiving the multi-year reinsurance coverage, Allstate will make periodic premium payments to the issuer.
