Notwithstanding exclusion 5 of the CECR policy, the Insurers shall indemnify the Insured in respect of loss of gross profit actually sustained due to the reduction in turnover and the increased cost of working as defined in this Endorsement, if at any time during the period of insurance stated in the Schedule to this Endorsement the items (or any part thereof) insured under the CECR policy suffer loss or damage covered under the CECR policy, unless specifically excluded in this Endorsement, thereby causing interference with or interruption of the insured business.

The amount payable as indemnity hereunder shall be

  • in respect of reduction in turnover: the sum produced by applying the rate of gross profit to the amount by which the turnover during the indem­nity period, in consequence of the accident, falls short of the standard turnover,
  • in respect of increase in cost of working: the additional expenditure necessarily and reasonably incurred for the sole purpose of avoiding or diminishing the reduction in turnover which but for that expenditure would have taken place during the indemnity period in consequence of the acci­dent, but not exceeding the sum produced by applying the rate of gross profit to the amount of the reduction thereby avoided,


less any sum saved during the indemnity period in respect of such of the charges and expenses of the business payable out of the gross profit as may cease or be reduced in consequence of the accident,


Provided that if the annual sum hereunder is less than the sum produced by applying the rate of gross profit to the annual turnover, the amount payable is proportionately reduced.




CECR Policy

The underlying Civil Engineering Completed Risks (CECR) material dam­age policy to which this Endorsement is attached.


Period of Insurance

The period of insurance shall be the period stated in the Schedule to this Endorsement. However, it shall automatically cease earlier, ie at the date the CECR policy expires or is terminated.


Gross Profit

The amount by which the value of the turnover exceeds the amount of the specified working expenses.

Specified working expenses shall be any variable costs, eg costs in­curred for the acquisition of goods, materials as well as for supplies and services (unless required for the upkeep of operations) and any expendi­ture for turnover tax, purchase tax, license fees and royalties, etc, insofar as such costs are dependent on turnover.



The money (less discounts allowed) paid or payable to the Insured for goods sold and delivered and for services rendered in the course of the business at the insured location(s).


Indemnity Period

The period not exceeding the indemnity period limit stated in the Sched­ule commencing with the occurrence of the accident during which the results of the business are affected in consequence of such accident.


Time Excess

The period stated in the Schedule for which the Insurers are not liable. The corresponding amount shall be calculated by multiplying the average daily value of loss sustained during the indemnity period by the number of days agreed upon as time excess.


Rate of Gross Profit

The rate of gross profit earned on the turnover during the financial year immediately before the date of the accident.


Standard Turnover

The turnover during that period in the twelve months immediately before the date of the accident which corresponds to the indemnity period to which such adjustments are made as may be necessary to provide for the trend of the business and for variations in or special circumstances affecting the business either before or after the accident or which would have affected the business had the accident not occurred, so that the figures thus adjusted represent as nearly as may be reasonably practi­cable the results which but for the accident would have been obtained during the relative period after the accident.


Annual Turnover

The turnover which the Insured would have been able to obtain but for the accident during the twelve months immediately before either the date when the business is no longer affected or when the indemnity period ends, whichever occurs first.




This Endorsement shall not cover any loss resulting from interruption of or interference with the business directly or indirectly attributable to

  1. loss or damage covered under the CECR policy by way of endorse­ment, unless it has been specifically agreed in writing;
  2. the imposition of abnormal conditions directly or indirectly resulting from testing, intentional overloading or experiments;
  3. loss or damage for which a supplier, contractor or repairer is respon­sible either by law or under contract;
  4. loss of or damage to operating media or feedstock, interruption of out­side power supply, shortage, destruction, deterioration of or damage to any materials necessary for the insured business;
  5. non-availability of funds;
  6. alterations, additions, improvements, rectification of defects or faults or elimination of any deficiencies carried out after the occurrence;
  7. any law or ordinance regulating any form of pollution or contamination:
  8. any restrictions on reconstruction or operation imposed by any public authority;
  9. any loss due to fines or damages for breach of contract, for late or non-completion of order, for any penalties of whatsoever nature;

loss of business due to causes such as suspensions, lapse or can­cellation of a lease, license or order, etc which occurs after the date when the item affected by an accident is again in operating condition and the business could have been resumed, if said lease, license or order, etc had not lapsed or had not been suspended or cancelled,



Memo 1 – Benefit from Other Locations

If during the indemnity period goods are sold or services are rendered elsewhere than at the insured location(s) for the benefit of the business either by the Insured or by others acting on his behalf, the money paid or payable in respect of such sales or services shall be taken into account in arriving at the turnover during the indemnity period.


Memo 2 – Return of Premium

If the Insured declares at the latest six months after the expiry of any policy year that the gross profit earned during the accounting period of twelve months most nearly concurrent with any period of insurance, as certified by the Insured’s auditors, was less than the sum insured there­on, a pro rata return of premium not exceeding one third of the premium paid on such sum insured for such period of insurance shall be made in respect of the difference.

If any accident has occurred giving rise to a claim under this Endorse­ment, such return shall be made in respect only of so much of said differ­ence as is not due to such accident.


Memo 3 – Overhauls

In calculating the loss, due allowance shall be made for the time spent on any inspections, overhauls or modifications carried out during any period of interruption.


Memo 4 – Benefits after Recommissioning

If during a period of six months immediately following the recommis­sioning of insured items after an accident, the Insured derives benefits from deferred sales and/or profits as a consequence of the interruption, such benefits shall be taken into account in determining the indemnity payable under this Endorsement.


Memo 5 – Reinstatement of Sum Insured

For the period following the occurrence of an accident up to the end of the policy period the sum insured shall be reinstated by payment of an additional premium on a pro rata basis, such premium to be calculated from the part of the sum insured which corresponds to the indemnity paid; the agreed sum insured shall remain unaltered.

    2. the Insured’s interest cease otherwise than by death,

    4. the retention of standby or spare capacities or any other loss-minimiz­ing factors in existence when the insurance was effected be reduced or discontinued, or such standby or spare capacity not be maintained in an efficient working condition and available for immediate use,


then this Policy shall be void unless its continuance is admitted by a spe­cial written statement signed by or on behalf of the Insurers.
