Appeals Court Rules in Favor of HCI Group Inc. on Breach of Contract Dispute with Aon Benfield

Aon Benfield lost its appeal to overturn a lower court ruling in connection with its 2009 revenue sharing agreement with HCI Group Inc. HCI Group sued the company after it refused to share the revenues that it received from placing HCI Group's reinsurance coverage after HCI Group elected to use another intermediary. The company argued that the revenue sharing agreement contained a forfeiture clause that said no shared revenue would be payable any time after HCI Group decided to terminate or replace the company. HCI Group said the agreement was never intended to be more than a one-year deal and that the asserted forfeiture provision was ambiguous. The federal court in Chicago ruled in favor of HCI Group. The company appealed the ruling, arguing that the language of the agreement was not ambiguous. However, the U.S. Court of Appeals found that the language of the agreement was ambiguous and the interpretation that the company sought was 'problematic because it leads to an impossibility' and unreasonable.
