1) The table shows the movement in capacity as result of acquisitions made since 1 January 2017 splitting the capacity retained by Helios and the capacity that is ceded to quota share reinsurers.

2) The mid point forecasts as of 2(nd) quarter 2017 have been aggregated at syndicate level from estimates supplied by Managing Agents

   3)    The impact on Helios will be as follows: 

a. The additional capacity acquired on the open years will make a contribution to the earnings of Helios although part of the result will have been earned in prior years or will be treated as pre-acquisition profits.

b. The increase in the mid point estimates on the retained capacity will be recognised in the Helios income statement this year.

c. The overall improvement in the result will be received by Helios in cash when the profits are distributed after the close of the year of account.
