Net Premiums EarnedNet premiums earned for the third quarter of 2010 were $143.1 million, down 40% from $238.4 million earned in the third quarter of 2009. Net premiums earned include accelerated premiums, which result from calls, terminations and other accelerations recognized during the quarter. Accelerated premiums were $30.0 million in the third quarter of 2010, down from $90.3 million in the third quarter 2009. Normal net premiums earned, which exclude accelerated premiums, were $113.1 million in the third quarter of 2010, down 24% from $148.1 million in the third quarter of 2009. Normal net premiums earned for the period have been negatively impacted by the lack of new business written and the high level of refundings and terminations over the past several quarters, as well as non-recognition of premiums earned on VIEs that have been consolidated as a result of implementation of ASU 2009-17, effective January 1, 2010.
