(ii) Failed Businesses; (iii) Entities, Individuals or Claims not included within the Economic Class definition; and (iv) Claims covered under the Seafood Program.
See Compensation Framework for Business Economic Loss Claims.
See Exhibit A attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed. 1
B. Modified V-Shaped Revenue Pattern:
Total business revenue shows the following pattern:
AND ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING:
a. The claimant demonstrates a decline of 10% in the share of total revenue generated by non-local customers over the same period of three consecutive months from May-December 2010 as selected by claimant for the Modified V-Shaped Revenue Pattern as identified in (II.B.1) compared to the same three consecutive month period in 2009, as reflected in:5
x customer credit card receipts or other contemporaneously maintained
records of payment; or x customer registration logs (e.g., hotel registries); or x documentation maintained in the ordinary course of business that lists
customers by location and monthly sales associated with those customers; or x business documents reflecting contemporaneous recording of receipts or invoices listing customers by location.6
b. For business claimants that have customers in Zones A-C, the claimant demonstrates a decline of 10% in the share of total revenue generated by customers located in Zones A-C over the same period of the three consecutive months from May-December 2010 as selected by claimant for the Modified V-Shaped Revenue Pattern as identified in (II.B.1) compared to the same three consecutive month period in 2009, as reflected in:
See Compensation Framework for Business Economic Loss Claims. 5 A Customer shall be considered a “non-local customer” if they reside more than 60 miles from a claimant business location.
See Exhibit B attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed. 2
x customer credit card receipts or other contemporaneously maintained records of payment; or
x customer registration logs (e.g., hotel registries); or
x documentation maintained in the ordinary course of business that lists customers by location and monthly sales associated with those customers; or x business documents reflecting contemporaneous recording of receipts or invoices listing customers by location.7
c. The claimant provides contemporaneous written evidence of the cancellation of a contract as the direct result of the spill that claimant was not able to replace. Proof of a spill-related contract cancellation only establishes causation for the specific contract substantiated by the claimant and may result in recovery only of damages solely associated with such contract.
C. Decline-Only Revenue Pattern:
See Exhibit C attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed.
See Compensation Framework for Business Economic Loss Claims. 3
x The claimant demonstrates proof of a decline of 10% in the share of total revenue generated by non-local customers over the same period of three consecutive months from May-December 2010 as selected by the claimant for the Decline-Only Revenue Pattern as identified in (II.C.1) compared to the same three consecutive month period in 2009, as reflected in:9

spill as the reason for cancellation) that the claimant was unable to rebook. Proof of spill-related reservation cancellations only establishes causation for the specific cancellations substantiated by the claimant and may result in recovery only of damages solely associated with such cancellations established as causally resulting from the spill. However, if the lodging facility has food and/or beverage services on site, the evidence of cancellation shall satisfy causation for the specific losses corresponding to such cancellation in those service areas as well.
x The claimant provides contemporaneous written evidence of the cancellation of a contract as the direct result of the spill that claimant was not able to replace. In the absence of contemporaneous written evidence, the claimant must present an affidavit from an independent third party affirming that the cancellation was spill-related. Proof of a spill-related contract cancellation only establishes causation for the specific contract substantiated by the claimant and may result in recovery only of damages solely associated with such contract.
E. A non-rural business claimant on a property that is in close proximity (within 100 yards) to the property of a separate MDL 2179 business claimant that has established causation (“Causation Proxy Claimant”) may rely on the documentation submitted by such Causation Proxy Claimant to satisfy these Causation Requirements for Business Economic Loss Claims. A “Rural Business” claimant located within one quarter-mile of the property of the Causation Proxy Claimant may rely on the documentation submitted by the Causation Proxy Claimant to satisfy these causation requirement only if the claimant provides information sufficient for the Claims Administrator to determine that a causal relationship exists between the
claimant’s financial performance and the financial performance of the Causation
Proxy Claimant. A Rural Business shall be defined as one is located in area outside an Urban Area or Urban Cluster, as defined by the US Census Bureau’s classification. Only business claimants with annual revenue of $75,000 or below are eligible to establish causation under this Subpart IIE.
III. Causation Requirements for Zone D
If you are not entitled to a presumption as set forth in (I) above and you are located outside of Zones A, B or C, then you must satisfy the requirements of one of the following sections A-F below:

15 A Customer shall be considered a “non-local customer” if they reside more than 60 miles from a claimant
x For business claimants that have customers in Zones A-C, the claimant demonstrates proof of a decline of 10% in the share of total revenue generated by customers located in Zones A-C over the same period of the three consecutive months from May-December 2010 as selected by the claimant for the Modified V-Shaped Revenue Pattern identified in (III.B.1) compared to the same three consecutive month period in 2009, as reflected in:
x The claimant provides contemporaneous written evidence of the cancellation of a contract as the direct result of the spill that claimant was not able to replace. Proof of a spill-related contract cancellation only establishes causation for the specific contract substantiated by the claimant and may result in recovery only of damages solely associated with such contract.
C. Decline-Only Revenue Pattern:
1. DOWNTURN: a decline of an aggregate of 15% or more in total revenues over a period of three consecutive months between May-December 2010 compared to the same months in the Benchmark Period selected by the claimant without a recovery in the corresponding months of 2011; 18
See Exhibit B attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed.
See Exhibit C attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed.

x For business claimants that have customers in Zones A-C, the claimant demonstrates proof of a decline of a 10% in the share of total revenue generated by customers located in Zone A, Zone B, or Zone C over the same period of three consecutive months from May-December 2010 as selected by the claimant for the Decline-Only Revenue Pattern as identified in (III.C.1) compared to the same three consecutive month period in 2009, as reflected in:
19 A Customer shall be considered a “non-local customer” if they reside more than 60 miles from a claimant
business location. See Exhibit B attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed.
D. Proof of Spill-Related Reservation Cancellations
x Claimant may establish causation by providing contemporaneous written evidence of spill-related reservation cancellations (i.e., letters, emails, hotel logs for the relevant time) that the claimant was unable to rebook. Proof of spill-related reservation cancellations only establishes causation for the specific cancellations substantiated by the claimant and may result in recovery only of damages solely associated with such cancellations established as causally resulting from the spill. However, if the lodging facility has food and/or beverage services on site, the evidence of cancellation shall satisfy causation for the losses in those service areas as well.
x The claimant provides contemporaneous written evidence of the cancellation of a contract as the direct result of the spill that claimant was not able to replace. In the absence of contemporaneous written evidence, the claimant must present an affidavit from an independent third party affirming that the cancellation was spill-related. Proof of a spill-related contract cancellation only establishes causation for the specific contract substantiated by the claimant and may result in recovery of damages solely associated with such contract.
E. For claimants defined as “Seafood Retailers” (including restaurants):
o Claimant demonstrates purchases of Gulf of Mexico harvested seafood from Zone A, Zone B or Zone C vendors represented at least 10% of food costs during 2009, as reflected in historical purchase orders and/or invoices.
See Exhibit C attached hereto for an example of how this calculation is performed. 9
o Claimant demonstrates a decline of 7.5% in gross profit (gross sales less cost of goods sold) over a period of three consecutive months between May-December 2010 compared to the same months in 2009.
F. A non-rural business claimant on a property that is in close proximity (within 100 yards) to the property of a separate MDL 2179 business claimant that has established causation (“Causation Proxy Claimant”) may rely on the documentation submitted by such Causation Proxy Claimant to satisfy these Causation Requirements for Business Economic Loss Claims. A “Rural Business” claimant located within one quarter-mile of the property of the Causation Proxy Claimant may rely on the documentation submitted by the Causation Proxy Claimant to satisfy these causation requirement only if the claimant provides information sufficient for the Claims Administrator to determine that a causal relationship exists between the claimant’s financial performance and the financial performance of the Causation Proxy Claimant. A Rural Business shall be defined as one is located in area outside an
urban area or urban cluster, as defined by the US Census Bureau’s classification.
Only business claimants with annual revenue of $75,000 or below are eligible to establish causation under this Subpart IIIF.

Addendum To Causation Requirements For Business Economic Loss Claims and Compensation Framework for Business Economic Loss Claims
The term “Benchmark Period” is defined at pp. 1-2 in the Compensation Framework for Business Economic Loss Claims (Ex. 4C). That definition provides:
The Benchmark Period is the pre-DWH Spill time period which claimant chooses as the baseline for measuring its historical financial performance. The claimant can select among the following Benchmark Periods: 2009; the average of 2008-2009; or the average of 2007-2009, provided that the range of years selected by the claimant will be utilized for all Benchmark Period purposes.
Footnote 2 of the Causation Requirements For Business Economic Loss Claims (Ex. 4B) specifically incorporates that definition of Benchmark Period by reference.
Accordingly, once the claimant selects the Benchmark Period year(s) (2009, the average of 20082009, or the average of 2007-2009), the same Benchmark Period year(s) are used “for all Benchmark Period purposes” -- specifically, the same Benchmark Period year(s) are used for purposes of determining both causation and compensation.
In contrast, a claimant is not required to use the same months in the Benchmark Period for purposes of establishing causation pursuant to Ex. 4B and determining compensation pursuant to Ex. 4C.
For example, when evaluating whether a claimant can satisfy causation using the “V Test,” the claimant may select any consecutive 3-month period between May and December 2010 for comparison to a comparable period in the Benchmark Period (i.e., 2009, the average of 2008-2009, or the average of 2007-2009). After establishing causation, however, the claimant may select a different 3 or more consecutive months between May and December 2010 in determining compensation in accordance with the Compensation Framework for Business Economic Loss Claims, so long as the claimant uses the same Benchmark Period years as the basis for comparison. Thus, if the claimant selected for causationthe three months of May - July in the Benchmark Period years of the average of 2008-2009, the claimant can select for compensation different months -- e.g., August - October -- but must use the same average of 2008-2009 Benchmark Period. The same Benchmark Period year(s) thus must be used both for causation (Ex. 4B) and compensation (Ex. 4C).
The additional examples on the next page illustrate these rules: Scenario 1:
1) Claimant selected the months of May-July 2010 for the purpose of determining causation, and the claimant, using these months, meets the causation test for the Benchmark period years of 2009, 2008-2009 and 2007-2009;
2) In determining Compensation, Claimant would be allowed to select the months of August through November 2010 as compared to the months of August through November in either 2009, 2008-2009 or 2007-2009 as the Benchmark years – whichever provides the highest compensation.
