In connection with this commitment to DFS, neither Mr. Falcone nor any employee of Harbinger Capital Partners, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, may (i) serve as a director or officer of Fidelity & Guaranty Life, FGLH's parent company, and its subsidiaries (collectively "FGL") or (ii) be involved in making investment decisions for FGL's portfolio of assets or any funds withheld account supporting credit for reinsurance for FGL.

The commitment provides that (i) Mr. Falcone may continue to own any direct or indirect interest in HGI and serve as an officer or director of HGI and (ii) HGI may continue to own any direct or indirect interest in FGLNY and any other New York-licensed insurer. Any other activities related solely to FGL (other than FGLNY) are not prohibited and HGI executives other than Mr. Falcone may continue to serve on FGL's Board of Directors.

The commitment also provides that FGLH will maintain or cause to be maintained FGLNY's Total Adjusted Capital at an amount no less than 225% of Company Action Level Risk-Based Capital (within the meaning of section 1322 of the Insurance Law) and to establish or cause FGLIC to establish a trust account for the sole use and benefit of FGLNY with cash and/or eligible securities having a fair market value of $18.5 million.

In the event of material changes or if compliance with the commitment letter proves impracticable (including in the context of merger, acquisition or similar transactions), the letter provides that application may be made to DFS to modify or withdraw the terms of such commitment.
