Company Overview:
        Maxum Indemnity Company (MIC) was founded in 2003 by a seasoned group of insurance
industry executives. Our ownership provided the capital for surplus and purchased the shell (assets only)
of Caliber One and renamed the company Maxum Indemnity Company. This provided IT infrastructure
and reporting capabilities. Maxum Indemnity Company was established with three operating platforms:
Casualty Brokerage, Binding/Programs, and Professional Liability.
        A fourth operating platform was added in the summer of 2004 with the purchase of Golden Isles
Insurance Company. The company was then renamed as Maxum Casualty Insurance Company (MCIC).
MCIC is our admitted carrier and is used to write transportation business, which is currently limited to
trucking accounts.
        Upon establishment of MCIC, Maxum Specialty Insurance Group (MSIG) was created. MSIG
consists of Maxum Indemnity Company and Maxum Casualty Insurance Company.
        Maxum Specialty Insurance Group is rated “A- VII”, with a “Stable” outlook by A.M. Best. Our
rating was affirmed with a “Stable” outlook in 2009.
        Maxum Specialty Insurance Group has policyholder surplus of $63,710,401.

Indemnity Company paper. In addition, an aggressive effort is underway to position our admitted carrier
for use in writing program business.

Program Administrator Parameters:
Technology Expectations of Program Administrators (rating, issuing, report capabilities etc.):
    Maxum utilizes a proprietary policy issuance system called Programs Online.
    This is an issuance system only, rather than a quote/bind/issue system
    Our PA’s use the rating/quoting/binding system of their preference
    Policy issuance is performed by our Program Administrators using Programs Online
    Our IT staff can work with your IT staff to build an interface between our system and your
     operating system to significantly reduce or eliminate duplicate data entry
    Data reports are furnished by Maxum and can be tailored to suit almost any need.
Risk Sharing:
         There is no requirement that any of our PA’s participate in risk bearing.
        Maxum has a highly skilled and experienced claims staff that is dedicated to consistently handling
claims in a proper manner.
        Claims handling authority is not extended to PA’s.
       Support of Senior Management - Growth in the programs business has been identified by our
management team as an area targeted for growth. That effort has support throughout the organization.
       Capacity – Maxum’s expected Capacity Ratios through year end 2008 are:
       1.46 : 1 DWP to PHS, well within the 9 : 1 benchmark, and
         .71 : 1 NWP to PHS, well within the 3 : 1 benchmark.
   Maxum possesses sufficient surplus to support significant premium growth.
       Additional Lines of Coverage – Maxum will consider adding lines of business to the existing
coverage offering if needed to support a program.
       Commitment – Maxum is committed to becoming a significant participant in the programs
market. This commitment is not a short term play to gain market share. It is a logical extension of
Maxum’s long term strategic plan. That plan calls for allocating designated resources to ensure the
success of the initiative.
