CA Ins Code Section 1186


No acquisitions or dispositions of assets shall be reported pursuant to Section 1185 if the acquisitions or dispositions are not material. For purposes of this article, a material acquisition (or the aggregate of any series of related acquisitions during any 30-day period) or disposition (or the aggregate of any series of related dispositions during any 30-day period) is one that is nonrecurring and not in the ordinary course of business and involves more than 5 percent of the reporting insurer’s total admitted assets as reported in its most recent statutory statement filed with the insurance department of the insurer’s state of domicile.


Asset acquisitions subject to this article include every purchase, lease, exchange, merger, consolidation, succession, or other acquisition other than the construction or development of real property by or for the reporting insurer or the acquisition of materials for that purpose. Asset dispositions also include every sale, lease, exchange, merger, consolidation, mortgage, hypothecation, assignment (whether for the benefit of creditors or otherwise), abandonment, destruction, or other disposition.


The following information is required to be disclosed in any report of a material acquisition or disposition of assets:


Date of the transaction.


Manner of acquisition or disposition.


Description of the assets involved.


Nature and amount of the consideration given or received.


Purpose of, or reason for, the transaction.


Manner by which the amount of consideration was determined.


Gain or loss recognized or realized as a result of the transaction.


Name of the person from whom the assets were acquired or to whom they were disposed.


Insurers shall report material acquisitions and dispositions on a nonconsolidated basis unless the insurer is part of a consolidated group of insurers which utilizes a pooling arrangement or 100 percent reinsurance agreement that affects the solvency and integrity of the insurer’s reserves and that insurer ceded substantially all of its direct and assumed business to the pool. An insurer is deemed to have ceded substantially all of its direct and assumed business to a pool if the insurer has less than one million dollars ($1,000,000) total direct plus assumed written premiums during a calendar year that are not subject to a pooling arrangement and the net income of the business not subject to the pooling arrangement represents less than 5 percent of the insurer’s capital and surplus.
