Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of consolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. BDO USA, LLP, a Delaware limited liability partnership, is the U.S. member of BDO International Limited, a UK company limited by guarantee, and forms part of the international BDO network of independent member firms. BDO is the brand name for the BDO network and for each of the BDO Member Firms. 3


 
Opinion In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Presentation of Consolidated Financial Statements The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Cash and Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash Cash and cash equivalents are essentially composed of cash and cash equivalents maturing in three months or less at the date of purchase. 12


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements BSG receives insurance premiums to be remitted to insurance companies on behalf of its customers or for the purpose of reimbursement to Cafeteria Plan participants. Such funds are held in separate accounts and are reported on the consolidated balance sheets as restricted cash. The following table summarizes the composition of total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, as presented on the statements of cash flows: December 31, 2018 2017 Cash and cash equivalents $ 24,161,363 $ 23,568,589 Restricted cash and cash equivalents 943,809 1,954,550 Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash $ 25,105,172 $ 25,523,139 Investments The Company classifies all fixed maturity investments and common and preferred stocks as available-for-sale. Available-for-sale securities are recorded at estimated fair value. Unrealized gains and losses on available-for-sale securities, less applicable income tax, are reported as a separate component of members’ equity until realized. Changes in unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, are included in other comprehensive income. Realized gains and losses on disposal of investments and declines in value considered to be other than temporary are determined on a specific identification basis and are included as a component of net income. The carrying value of fixed maturity investments are adjusted for impairments, which are declines in value that are considered to be other than temporary. When impairment of the value of an investment is considered other than temporary, the decrease in value is reported in net income as a realized investment loss and a new cost basis is established. The Company does not change the revised cost basis for subsequent recoveries in value. In evaluating whether a decline in value is other than temporary, the Company considers several factors including, but not limited to, the following: (1) whether the decline is substantial; (2) the duration of the loss; (3) the reasons for the decline in value (credit event, interest related or market fluctuations); (4) the Company’s ability and intent to hold the investments for a period of time to allow for a recovery of value; and (5) the financial condition of and near term prospects of the issuer. Fair Value Measurements The Company used the following levels of classification for investments reflected at fair value. The framework is based on the inputs used in valuation and gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets and requires that observable inputs be used in the evaluations when available. The disclosure of fair value estimates is based on whether the significant inputs into the valuation are observable. In determining the level in which the estimate is disclosed, the highest priority is 13


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements given to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs that reflect the Company’s significant market assumptions. The three levels used are as follows: Level 1 - Evaluation of market prices (non-adjusted) observed in active markets, for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 - Evaluation techniques based on data other than the market prices provided in Level 1, which are directly or indirectly observable in the market for assets or liabilities. Level 3 - Evaluation techniques based on a large share of parameters not observable in the market. Valuation of Investments Fixed maturity investments - The Company uses a nationally recognized pricing service to estimate fair value measurements for all of its bonds. The pricing service uses market prices observed in active markets, such as U.S. treasury securities, bonds from federal government, bonds of government owned companies, U.S. bonds and international corporations. If bonds are not traded on a daily basis, the pricing service prepares an estimate of the fair value measurement for these investments using valuation techniques and models that include, for instance, using recent arm’s length market transactions between knowledgeable, willing parties, reference to the current fair value of another instrument that is substantially the same, discounted cash flow analysis and option pricing models. Data used by the pricing service in applying the valuation techniques represent reasonable market expectations and measures of the risk-return factors inherent to the financial instrument. If the pricing service cannot carry out the fair value measurement of an investment due to the lack of relevant data in the market, the Company produces an estimate of fair value using the same valuation techniques and models as the pricing service, by using assumptions for market data to be used that are not available under current market conditions. Depending on the data observed on the markets, the fair value estimate provided by the pricing service is included in the amounts disclosed in Level 1 or Level 2 of the hierarchy. Stocks - For stocks of public companies, the Company receives market prices from a pricing service and includes these fair value estimates in the amounts disclosed in Level 1 for common stock and Level 2 for preferred stock. Common stock market prices obtained are based on actual recent arm’s length market transactions between knowledgeable, willing parties. Preferred stock market prices obtained are based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities other than quoted prices in Level 1; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. Other invested assets – Represent a membership interest in a limited partnership that is recorded on the equity method basis. Deferred Policy Acquisition Costs Costs which vary with and are directly related to the successful acquisition of new business have been deferred to the extent that such costs are deemed recoverable through future revenues. These deferred acquisition costs (DAC) include commissions, certain costs of policy issuance, and underwriting costs. DAC is amortized with interest over the estimated premium paying period in 14


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements proportion to the ratio of anticipated annual premium revenue to the anticipated total premium revenue, using the same mortality, morbidity, and withdrawal assumptions used in computing liabilities for future policy benefits. The Company periodically reviews the carrying value of DAC for indications that the balance may not be recoverable. Federal Income Taxes The Company files a consolidated return for all of its subsidiaries, other than the life insurance subsidiaries, with its parent, Ellard Family Holdings, Inc. NTA Life files a consolidated tax return with its wholly-owned subsidiary, NTA of New York. Deferred income taxes are recorded to reflect the tax consequences on future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts measured using the enacted tax rates and laws in effect at the measurement date. The Company periodically evaluates deferred income tax assets and recognizes a valuation allowance based on the estimate of the amount of such deferred tax assets which management believes does not meet the more likely than not recognition criteria. At December 31, 2018 management has concluded that no deferred income tax asset valuation allowance is necessary. Equity in unearned premium and advance premium Equity in unearned and advanced premium consists of premium taxes and commissions related to unearned and advanced premiums. Premium taxes and commissions have been paid or accrued on the unearned and advanced premiums, a corresponding asset is set up as an offset. Future Policy Benefit Reserves The aggregate reserves for future policy benefits is an estimate of the present value of the future benefits to be provided under life, accident and health insurance policies and are actuarially computed in accordance with Accounting Standards Codifications (ASC) 944, Financial Services - Insurance. Policy and Contract Claims Policy and contract claims include provisions for claims reported to the Company plus an estimated accrual for claims incurred but not reported based on prior experience of the Company. Changes in the estimated claim liability are reflected in current operating results. While management of the Company believes that the estimated liability for policy and contract claims is adequate, such estimates may be more or less than the amounts ultimately paid when the claims are settled. Reinsurance Balances Receivable Amounts recoverable from reinsurers, including amounts equal to the assets supporting insurance liabilities ceded to reinsurers and amounts due for the reimbursement of related benefit payments and commission allowances, are reflected as reinsurance balances receivable. Reinsurance balances receivable are evaluated as to their collectability and, if appropriate, reserves for doubtful collectability are established through a charge to earnings. 15


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Agent Advance The Company advances a portion of the first-year commission when policies are written. The advance is recorded on the consolidated balance sheets as an asset. As policies continue in force, a portion of the advance is earned and is recognized as commission expense. If policies cancel, any remaining advance balance is recovered through the reduction of commissions owed to the agent. A provision has been established for advances that may not be recouped. Premiums Due Premiums due represent premiums that have not been received as of the statement date and are shown net of an allowance for uncollectibility. Premium Income Life insurance premiums on traditional life policies are reported as earned when due through the anniversary date of the policy. Premium income on accident and health insurance is earned over the term of the policies. Property and Equipment Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation has been calculated using the straight-line method and accelerated methods over the estimated useful lives of the related assets of 3 to 15 years. The Company evaluates impairment of its property and equipment annually. All items deemed to be impaired are charged to expense in the year in which the impairment occurs. Commission Income The Agency receives commission income from non-affiliated insurers on a monthly basis. The commission income is in a run off mode as no new policies are sold for the insurers. Other Comprehensive Income Accumulated other comprehensive income is included within members’ equity in the accompanying balance sheet and consists of changes in members’ equity resulting from non-owner sources. Accumulated other comprehensive income as reported in the accompanying balance sheets represents unrealized gains and losses on available-for-sale securities, net of applicable income taxes. Guaranty Fund and Other Assessments Assessments that are available to offset against future premium taxes are capitalized when incurred. The asset is then reduced for credits taken against premium taxes for up to five years. Assessments not available as an offset against future premium taxes are charged directly to expense when incurred. Cash Flows For purposes of the consolidated statements of cash flows, the Company includes cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. 16


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Use of Estimates The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the year. The most significant estimates include those used in determining the fair value of investments, liabilities for future policy benefit reserves and policy and contract claims and related reinsurance recoveries, and deferred acquisition costs. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Although some variability is inherent in these estimates, the Company believes that the amounts presented in the accompanying consolidated financial statements are appropriate.

NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Through the Company’s comprehensive evaluation, management concluded that the unrealized losses at December 31, 2018 and 2017 were caused by interest rate and temporary market fluctuations. At December 31, 2018, the aggregate of unrealized losses related to securities rated below investment grade was not material. Based on the Company’s impairment review process, the decline in value of these investments is not considered to be other-than-temporary. The Company has no securities with an other-than-temporary impairment wherein the Company has (a) an intent to sell or (b) an inability or lack of intent to retain the investment in the security for a period of time sufficient to recover the amortized cost basis. The amortized cost and estimated fair value of bonds at December 31, 2018, by contractual maturity, are shown below. Expected maturities will differ from contractual maturities because borrowers may have the right to call or prepay obligations with or without call or prepayment penalties.

As of year-end, NTA Life had $8.1 million of such loans outstanding which is included in mortgage loans on the consolidated balance sheet. 20


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements NTA Life held one loan participation for $1.9 million that was placed into default by Lincoln Capital Management due to the borrower’s failure to begin the contemplated construction project. The mortgage is secured by a first-lien interest in real property that is marketable and valued at approximately $3.0 million, well in excess of the outstanding loan balance with the originator.

Federal Income Taxes On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the Act) was signed into law. Among other things, beginning with the 2018 tax year, the Act reduced the Company’s corporate federal tax rate from a marginal rate of 35% to a flat 21%, eliminated the corporate Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT), changed reserving and other aspects of the computation of taxable income for insurance companies, and modified the net operating loss carryback and carryforward provisions for all entities in the group. The modified net operating loss provisions no longer allow a carryback to prior years to recover past taxes, but now allow an indefinite carryforward period subject to yearly utilization limit.

Reinsurance NTA Life cedes life insurance risks to Optimum Re Insurance Company on both a yearly renewable term and on a coinsurance basis in excess of certain retention limits. NTA Life had a reinsurance agreement with RGA Reinsurance Company whereby it cedes 100% of the Accidental Death rider for accident policies issued after May 18, 2015 in selected markets. This agreement was terminated effective May 31, 2018. Ceding risks does not discharge the primary liability of NTA Life.

NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements 8. Members’ Equity and Restrictions The Company makes distributions to its Members in an amount to be determined by the Chief Executive Officer, with annual cumulative distributions not to exceed one hundred percent (100%) of the Company-received distributions, less any federal or state tax attributable to the Company and any capital contributions made to its subsidiaries, during the current calendar year but always subject to the operating needs of the Company. The Company received cash distributions from its subsidiaries in the amount of $7,592,972 and $9,942,972 and paid cash distributions to its members in the amount of $8,592,972 and $9,942,972 in 2018 and 2017, respectively. NTA Life is domiciled in the state of Texas and is therefore subject to the statutory requirements and limitations established by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI). Companies operating under the laws of the State of Texas must have minimum capital and surplus requirements in order to transact business. Minimum capital and surplus requirements are $700,000. The Company receives distributions from NTA Life which are regulated under insurance law of the State of Texas. Statutory regulations in the State of Texas generally will not allow the payment of cash or property distributions in any one year to exceed the greater of NTA Life statutory net gain from operations for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 or 10% of statutory surplus as at December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. NTA Life paid $5,000,000 and $5,000,000 in cash distributions in 2018 and 2017, respectively. As of December 31, 2018, the maximum distribution which may be declared without prior approval of the Texas Department of Insurance is $19,734,969 in 2019. EEI, the direct parent company of NTA Life, paid cash distributions of $4,592,972 and $4,592,972 to the Company and $403,200 and $403,200 to the non-controlling interest in 2018 and 2017, respectively. NTA of New York is domiciled in the State of New York and is therefore subject to the statutory requirements and limitations established by the New York State Department of Financial Services. Companies operating under the laws of the State of New York must have a minimum capital and surplus requirement in order to transact business. Minimum capital and surplus is $6,000,000. Statutory regulations in the State of New York generally will not allow the payment of cash or property distributions in any one year to exceed the greater of statutory net gain from operations for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 or 10% of statutory surplus as at December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. No cash distributions were paid in 2018 and 2017. The maximum distribution which may be declared without prior approval is $0. NTA Life and NTA of New York are required to comply with the NAIC’s risk-based capital (RBC) requirements. Under the RBC standards, risks such as asset risk, insurance risk, interest rate risk and business risk are evaluated and compared to the Company’s capital and surplus to determine capital adequacy. The capital adequacy at December 31, 2018 and 2017 was in excess of RBC required amounts. 9. Retirement Savings Plan The employees of MAN participate in a retirement savings plan under Sections 401(a) and 401(k) of the United States Internal Revenue Code (IRC) of 1954, as amended. All employees of MAN are eligible to participate in the plan. Contributions to the plan are determined by the Company’s board 26


 
NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of directors based on a percentage of the employee’s eligible salary deferral contribution. MAN’s contributions for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $616,076 and $592,917, respectively. The plan may be terminated at any time by the board of directors of the Company. 10. Concentration of Risk The Company’s business activity with customers in the following states was in excess of 5% of its total premiums collected: Year ended December 31, 2018 California 28 % Texas 14 Louisiana 5 North Carolina 5 South Carolina 5 Virginia 5 Florida 5 The remaining business is written throughout the United States, with no single state accounting for more than 5% of the Company’s business activity. Following are the most significant risks facing the Company: Legal Regulatory Risk – the risk that changes in the legal or regulatory environment in which the company operates will change and create additional expense not anticipated by the company. Credit Risk – the risk that issuers of securities owned by the insurance subsidiaries will default, or other parties including reinsurers that owe money, will not pay. The insurance subsidiaries minimize this risk by adhering to a conservative investment strategy and by contracting with reinsurance companies that meet certain rating criteria and other qualifications. Interest Rate Risk – the risk that interest rates will change and cause a decrease in the value of the insurance subsidiaries investments. The risk is mitigated by attempting to match the maturity schedule of its investments with the expected payout of its liabilities. To the extent that liabilities come due more quickly than investments mature, the insurance subsidiaries would have to sell investments prior to maturity and recognize a gain or loss. 11. Affiliated Companies and Related Party Transactions The member capital of the Company is owned by Ellard Family Holdings, Inc. Ellard Family Holdings, Inc. is a holding company of entities that primarily support the distribution and servicing of insurance products underwritten by the Company.

Note 2 - Basis of Presentation (Continued)

Pending Accounting Standards
Revenue Recognition
 
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued accounting guidance to provide a single comprehensive model in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers. The guidance applies to all contracts with customers; however, insurance contracts are specifically excluded from this updated guidance. The guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim reporting periods within annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The majority of the Company's revenue is derived from transactions that do not fall within the scope of the new guidance, namely insurance contracts and investment income. The adoption of the new guidance is not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements. The Company will continue to monitor and examine transactions that could potentially fall within the scope of the new guidance.

Accounting for Leases

In February 2016, the FASB issued accounting and disclosure guidance to improve financial reporting and comparability among organizations about leasing transactions. Under the new guidance, for leases with lease terms of more than 12 months, a lessee will be required to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by those leases. Consistent with current accounting guidance, the recognition, measurement and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or an operating lease. However, while current guidance requires only capital leases to be recognized on the balance sheet, the new guidance will require both operating and capital leases to be recognized on the balance sheet. This new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. While the Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of the guidance, it does not expect the guidance to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments
In June 2016, the FASB issued guidance to improve financial reporting by requiring timelier recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments, including reinsurance receivables, held by companies. The new guidance replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology and requires an organization to measure and recognize all current expected credit losses (CECL) for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. Companies will need to utilize forward-looking information to better estimate their credit losses. Companies will continue to use judgment to determine which loss estimation method is appropriate for their circumstances. Any credit losses related to available for sale debt securities will be recorded through an allowance for credit losses with this allowance having a limit equal to the amount by which fair value is below amortized cost. The guidance also requires enhanced qualitative and quantitative disclosures to provide additional information about the amounts recorded in the financial statements. For public business entities, the guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those years, using a modified-retrospective approach. Early application is permitted for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018. Management is evaluating the impact this guidance will have on the results of operations and financial position of the Company.

Note 2 - Basis of Presentation (Continued)

Accounting for Long-Duration Insurance Contracts
In August 2018, the FASB issued accounting and disclosure guidance that contains targeted changes to the accounting for long-duration insurance contracts. Under the new guidance, the cash flow assumptions used to measure the liability for future policy benefits for traditional insurance contracts will be required to be updated at least annually with changes recognized as a benefit expense (i.e., assumptions will no longer be locked-in). Insurance entities will be required to use a standard discount rate to measure the liabilities that will be equivalent to the yield from a high-quality bond. The new guidance also changes the amortization of deferred acquisition costs (DAC) to be on a constant-level basis over the expected term of the related contracts with no interest accruing on the DAC balance. The new guidance also introduces a new category of contract features associated with deposit type contracts referred to as market risk benefits (MRBs). Contract features meeting the definition of a MRB will be measured at fair value. New disclosures will be required for long-duration insurance contracts in order to provide better transparency into the exposure of insurance entities and the drivers of their results. For public business entities, the guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those years. With regards to the liability for future policy benefits and DAC, the guidance applies to contracts in force as of the beginning of the earliest period presented and may be applied retrospectively. With regards to MRBs, the guidance is to be applied retrospectively at the beginning of the earliest period presented. Early adoption is permitted. Management is evaluating the impact this guidance will have on the results of operations and financial position of the Company.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the year. The most significant estimates include those used in determining the fair value of investments, liabilities for future policy benefit reserves and policy and contract claims and related reinsurance recoveries, and deferred acquisition costs. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Although some variability is inherent in these estimates, the Company believes that the amounts presented in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are appropriate.

Through the Company’s comprehensive evaluation, management concluded that the unrealized losses at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 were caused by interest rate and temporary market fluctuations. At December 31, 2018, the aggregate of unrealized losses related to fixed maturity securities rated below investment grade was not material. Based on the Company’s impairment review process, the decline in value of these investments is not considered to be other-than-temporary. The Company has no fixed maturity securities with an other-than-temporary impairment wherein the Company has (a) an intent to sell or (b) an inability or lack of intent to retain the investment in the security for a period of time sufficient to recover the amortized cost basis.

Gross realized gains on fixed maturity securities were $314 thousand and $487 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Gross realized losses on fixed maturity securities were $176 thousand and $106 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

In order to meet statutory requirements, the Company has certain investments on deposit with various insurance regulatory authorities. At March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, these deposits consisted of fixed maturity securities with an aggregate par value of $7,830 thousand and $7,830 thousand, respectively.

NTA Life is a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of Dallas, Texas with borrowing capacity of approximately $58.2 million as of March  31, 2019. The common stock held in FHLB represents the membership investment requirement and activities stock.

NTA Life invests in a portfolio of small-business interim construction and acquisition loans that are secured by liens on real estate and that are also pre-qualified for funding by the Small Business Administration (SBA), an independent agency of the federal government. Participation in these loans are sourced through Lincoln Capital Management who acts as the originator and coordinates permanent financing for the borrowers with SBA. As of March 31, 2019, NTA Life had $8.2 million of such loans outstanding which is included in Short-term and other investments on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

NTA Life held one loan participation for $1.9 million that was placed into default by Lincoln Capital Management due to the borrower’s failure to begin the contemplated construction project. The mortgage is secured by a first-lien interest in real property that is marketable and valued at approximately $3.0 million, well in excess of the outstanding loan balance with the originator. The loan is also collateralized by the personal guarantee of the borrower. The loan originator has begun legal foreclosure on the property and NTA Life expects to fully recover its investment. All other loans in the portfolio are current.

(1) 
Unpaid claims expenses as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets also include reserves for life policies of $238 thousand as of December 31, 2018, in addition to accident and health reserves.

Claim reserve balances have decreased and is attributed to the change in reserves in the three months ended March 31, 2019. This decrease is attributed to changes in reserve estimation assumptions and claim development trends. Original estimates are increased or decreased as additional information becomes known regarding individual trends.

Note 6 - Reinsurance

NTA Life cedes life insurance risks to Optimum Re Insurance Company on both a yearly renewable term and on a coinsurance basis in excess of certain retention limits.

NTA Life had a reinsurance agreement with RGA Reinsurance Company whereby it ceded 100% of the Accidental Death rider for accident policies issued after May 18, 2015 in selected markets. This agreement was terminated effective May 31, 2018.

Ceding risks does not discharge the primary liability of NTA Life. However, it does permit NTA Life to recover from the reinsurers a portion of benefits paid. NTA Life remains contingently liable for all amounts due to the policyholders should the reinsurer default.

As of and for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the amount ceded by the Company under various reinsurance agreements was as follows:

Note 7 - Members' Equity and Restrictions

The Company makes distributions to its Members in an amount to be determined by the Chief Executive Officer, with annual cumulative distributions not to exceed one hundred percent (100%) of the Company-received distributions, less any federal or state tax attributable to the Company and any capital contributions made to its subsidiaries, during the current calendar year but always subject to the operating needs of the Company. The Company received cash distributions from its subsidiaries in the amount of $2,250 thousand and $1,500 thousand and paid cash distributions to its members in the amount of $2,250 thousand and $497 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

NTA Life is domiciled in the state of Texas and is therefore subject to the statutory requirements and limitations established by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI). Companies operating under the laws of the State of Texas must have minimum capital and surplus requirements in order to transact business. Minimum capital and surplus requirements are $700 thousand.

EEI, the direct parent company of NTA Life, did not pay cash distributions to the Company or the non-controlling interest in the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Note 8 - Affiliated Companies and Related Party Transactions

The member capital of the Company is owned by Ellard Family Holdings, Inc. Ellard Family Holdings, Inc. is a holding company of entities that primarily support the distribution and servicing of insurance products underwritten by the Company.

The Company leases its office space from EE Realty, Inc (Realty). The lease had a five year term through December 2019 but was amended effective July 1, 2019 for an additional five year term.

The Company loaned $4.0 million to Realty on June 1, 2013 for Realty’s purchase of real property in Florida and other needs. This note is secured by a first lien mortgage, accrues interest at the rate of 5% per annum, and is payable in 119 installments of principal and interest in the amount of $23,383 per month. The last installment of principal is due June 1, 2023. During the three month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company received from Realty interest income of $43 thousand and $45 thousand, respectively. The outstanding principle balance at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 was $3,455 thousand and $3,482 thousand, respectively.

Note 9 - Commitments and Contingencies

The Company is involved with a number of claims in the ordinary course of business relating to insurance matters. Generally, the Company’s liability is limited to specific amounts relating to insurance or policy coverage for which a provision has been made in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Other claims are asserted from time to time involving general corporate matters which management believes do not represent significant contingencies for the Company. The Company has no material litigation pending.

Note 10 - Subsequent Events


The Company has evaluated subsequent events through September 13, 2019, the date which the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were available to be issued.

Subsequent to the acquisition of NTA, NTA Life declared an extraordinary dividend of $91.9 million, consisting of 2.0 million shares of common stock of NTA of New York and $85.0 million in cash, to its sole shareholder, Ellard Enterprises, Inc. The dividend was based upon 2.5 million shares of common stock outstanding and was payable to the shareholders of record as of July 1, 2019. On July 2, 2019, NTA Life distributed all of the shares of NTA of New York and $50.0 million in cash to its sole shareholder. On July 31, 2019, NTA Life distributed $35.0 million in cash to its shareholder of record. The dividend was filed with the Texas Department of Insurance and subsequently approved by Official Action on April 17, 2019 (HCS #1062807).

HORACE MANN EDUCATORS CORPORATION AND
NTALIFE ENTERPRISES, LLC AND SUBSIDIARIES
UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The following unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements (the pro forma financial statements) are based on the separate historical consolidated financial statements of Horace Mann Educators Corporation (Horace Mann) and NTALife Enterprises, LLC and Subsidiaries (NTA) after giving effect to the Acquisition as defined in Note 1, "Description of the Acquisition," and the assumptions and adjustments described in the accompanying notes to the pro forma financial statements. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet as of March 31, 2019 is presented as if the Acquisition had occurred on March 31, 2019. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2018 and three months ended March 31, 2019 are presented as if the Acquisition had occurred on January 1, 2018. The historical consolidated financial statements have been adjusted to give effect to pro forma events that are (i) directly attributable to the Acquisition, (ii) factually supportable items and (iii) with respect to the unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations, expected to have a continuing impact on the combined results.

The preparation of the pro forma financial statements and related adjustments require certain assumptions and estimates. The pro forma financial statements should be read together with: 
the accompanying notes to the pro forma financial statements contained in this Exhibit 99.3;
Horace Mann's audited historical consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in Horace Mann's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018;
Horace Mann's unaudited historical condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in Horace Mann's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019;
NTA's audited historical consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 and accompanying notes thereto included in Exhibit 99.1 to Horace Mann's Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed herewith; and
NTA's unaudited historical condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2019 and for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 and accompanying notes thereto included in Exhibit 99.2 to Horace Mann's Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed herewith.

The pro forma financial statements were prepared using the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations pursuant to the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 805, Business Combinations (ASC 805), with Horace Mann considered the acquirer of NTA for accounting purposes. Under the acquisition method of accounting, the purchase price is allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their respective fair values as of the closing date, with any excess purchase price allocated to goodwill. The pro forma financial statements set forth below give effect to, among other things, the following: 
payment of cash to NTA members as the Acquisition consideration;
incurrence of debt to fund a portion of the cash payable in connection with the Acquisition consideration;
liquidation of certain Horace Mann investments to fund a portion of the cash payable in connection with the Acquisition consideration; and
elimination of transaction costs attributable to the Acquisition as such costs are considered non-recurring.

1


Horace Mann has not yet completed the purchase price allocation to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Accordingly, the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed presented in the pro forma financial statements are based on preliminary estimates. Determining fair values requires the use of estimates and assumptions including, but not limited to, estimates of future cash flows and direct costs in addition to developing the appropriate discount rates. Horace Mann believes the estimated fair values recognized for the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed are based on reasonable estimates and assumptions currently available. The final determination of the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed will be based on the estimated fair value of such assets and liabilities that exist as of the closing date. Accordingly, the amounts allocated to the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed and the resulting goodwill could change from the amounts used in the pro forma financial statements presented below.

The pro forma adjustments and related assumptions are described in the accompanying notes to the pro forma financial statements. Horace Mann believes that the assumptions used to derive the pro forma adjustments are reasonable given the information available. However, adjustments that may be recorded upon completion of the final valuation of balance sheet amounts may differ materially from the information presented in the pro forma financial statements.

The pro forma financial statements have been prepared by Horace Mann in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X promulgated by the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and are not necessarily indicative of the combined financial position or results of operations that might have been achieved had the Acquisition been completed as of the dates indicated, nor are they meant to be indicative of any anticipated combined financial position or future results of operations that the combined company will experience after the Acquisition. Neither Horace Mann nor NTA can provide any assurance that the results indicated in the pro forma financial statements will be realized or that Horace Mann's or NTA's future financial results will not materially vary from the pro forma financial statements. In addition, the accompanying unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations do not include any pro forma adjustments to give effect to expected synergies, expected cost savings or restructuring actions that may be achievable or the impact of any non-recurring activity.

Certain financial information of NTA, as presented in its historical consolidated financial statements, has been reclassified to conform to the historical presentation in Horace Mann's consolidated financial statements. Refer to Note 4, "Historical NTA Conforming Adjustments," to the pro forma financial statements for an explanation of these reclassifications.
