1 MAZARS June 3, 217 INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT To the Board of Directors We have audited the accompanying unconsolidated condensed financial statements of Wind haven Insurance Limited (the "Company"), which comprise the unconsolidated condensed balance sheet as of December 31, 216, and the related unconsolidated condensed statement of income and unconsolidated condensed statement of capital and surplus for the year then ended, and notes, comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. Management's Responsibility for the Unconsolidated Condensed Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of the unconsolidated condensed financial statements based on the financial reporting provisions of The Insurance Act 1978, amendments thereto and the Insurance Account Rules 216 with respect to Condensed General Purpose Financial Statements (the "Legislation"). Management is also responsible for the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal controls relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of unconsolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors' Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these unconsolidated condensed financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the unconsolidated condensed financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the unconsolidated condensed financial statements. The procedures selected depend on our judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the unconsolidated condensed financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the Company's preparation and fair presentation of the unconsolidated condensed financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the unconsolidated condensed financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Victoria Hall, 7 1 Floor, 11 Victoria Street, Hamilton HM11, Bermuda P.O.

2 INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT (continued) Basis for Adverse Opinion on Accounting Standards Generally Accepted in the United States of America As described in Note 3 to the unconsolidated condensed financial statements, the unconsolidated condensed financial statements are prepared by the Company based on the financial reporting provisions of the Legislation, which is a basis of accounting other than accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America. The effects on the unconsolidated condensed financial statements of the variances between the basis of accounting described in Note 3 and accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America are material. Further, as described in note 3, the Company has not consolidated the financial statements of its subsidiaries, Wind haven Managers, Inc. and Wind haven Insurance Company. The investment in affiliates is therefore accounted for on a cost basis by the Company. Under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, the subsidiaries should have been consolidated because they are controlled by the Company. Had Wind haven Managers, Inc. and Windhaven Insurance Company been consolidated, many elements in the accompanying unconsolidated condensed financial statements would have been materially affected. The effects on the financial statements of the failure to consolidate have not been determined. Adverse Opinion on Accounting Standards Generally Accepted in the United States of America In our opinion, because of the significance of the matter discussed in the "Basis for Adverse Opinion on accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America" paragraph, the unconsolidated condensed financial statements referred to above do not present fairly, in accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America, the unconsolidated financial position of the Company as of December 31, 216, or the unconsolidated results of its operations or its cash flows for the year then ended. Opinion on Unconsolidated Condensed Financial Statements In our opinion, the unconsolidated condensed financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the unconsolidated financial position of the Company as of December 31, 216, and the unconsolidated results of its operations for the year then ended, in accordance with the financial reporting provisions of the Legislation described in Note 3.

6 NOTES TO CONDENSED GENERAL PURPOSE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Matters to be set forth in a General Note to the Financial Statements 1. Windhaven Insurance Limited (formerly Windhaven Holdings, Ltd.) is owned by Jimmy E. Whited. The Company was incorporated under the laws of Bermuda on 16th November 24 and holds a Class 3A license under the Insurance Act 1978 of Bermuda. 2. The Company provides catastrophic excess of loss reinsurance to a third party. The policy is effective 28th October 216 and covers reinsurance of a % share of losses and premium. 3. The condensed general purpose financial statements have been prepared in conformity with the financial reporting provisions of the Insurance Act 1978, amendments thereto and the Insurance Account Rules 216 with respect to Condensed General Purpose Financial Statements (the "Legislation"). The condensed general purpose fmancial statements are based upon accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP") but are in accordance with the reporting requirements of the Legislation, which vaties in certain respects from US GAAP. The more significant variances are as follows: A statement of cash flows is not included; A statement of comprehensive income is not included; The presentation and classification of financial statement line items is in accordance with Schedules IX and XI of the Insurance Account Rules 216 and differ from the expected presentation and classification under US GAAP; and The notes included in the condensed general purpose financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Schedule X of the Insurance Account Rules 216 a nd exclude certain information required under US GAAP. The Company has not consolidated the financial statements of its subsidiary, Windhaven Managers, lnc. Investment in Windhaven Mana gers, Inc. has been presented at cost. Windhaven Managers, Inc. also holds a subsidiary which has not been consolidated (Wirldhaven Insurance Company); the value of this investment has been included at cost per the Section 56 direction. Under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, the subsidiaries should have been consolidated because they are controlled by the Company. Had Windhaven Managers, Inc. and Windhaven Insurance Company been consolidated, many clements in the accompanying condensed financial statements would have been materially affected. The effects on the financial statements of the failure to consolidate have not been determined. 4. The prepara tion of financial statements require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the r eporting date of the fmancial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. a. Premiums assumed and acquisition expenses Premiums assumed are recorded on an accruals basis and pro-rated over the life of the insurance contracts. The unearned portions of premiums are deferred irl the balance sheet. b. Outstanding losses and loss expenses Losses and loss expenses paid are recorded when advised by the ceding insurance company. Outstanding losses are comprised of estimates of the amount of reported losses and the loss expenses received from the ceding insurance company plus a provision for losses incurred but not reported based on the recommendation of an independent actuary using the past loss experience of the company and industry data. The Company has limited loss history of its own on which to base estimates of incurred but not reported losses and therefore industry data has been used. All provisions a re periodically reviewed and evaluated in the light of emerging claim experience and changing circumstances. Management believes that the provision for outstanding losses and loss expenses will be adequate to cover the ultimate net cost of losses incurred to the balance sheet date, but the provision is necessarily an estimate and may ultimately be settled for a significantly greater or lesser amount. Any subsequent 1

7 difference arising are recorded in the period in which they are determined. The provision for losses has not been discounted. c. Investment income Investment income comprises interest income from cash held in banks and loans to affiliated companies, and is recognized on an accrual basis. d. Financial instruments Financial assets and liabilities with the exception of investments in subsidiaries are recorded at fair value. e. Investments in affiliates The Company holds investments in Windhaven Managers, Inc. [USA), Windhaven Insurance Company Ltd. (USA}, and ARM Insurance Ltd (Guernsey) Segregated Account No. Series G45 "Windhaven". 1. Investment in Windhaven Managers, Inc. has been presented at cost.
