An addendum to the 2013 FHCF Ratemaking Formula Report (“Report”) was noted on Page 70 of the SBA materials.  At the time the Report had been presented to the FHCF Advisory Council on March 21, 2013, the FHCF was in the process of securing pre-event financing to increase its liquidity.  The pre-event carrying cost expense estimates used in the March 21 Report were based on estimated values provided by FHCF’s Financial Advisor, Raymond James, on January 30, 2013. The issuance of the 2013 pre-event financing was completed in April 2013 and Raymond James provided a revised estimate of the carrying cost expense on April 10, 2013.  The revised estimates reduce the projected value of FHCF expenses for the 2013 FHCF Contract Year.

The Report addendum brings premium and coverage calculations into accordance with changes made by this revision of projected carrying costs for pre-event financing.
