Claims covered by this section of the policy usually result from a specific corporate action that causes a drop in the market price of the firm's securities. "Side C" coverage, as entity securities coverage is often referred to, is actually an extension of the regular coverage afforded by of D&O liability policies, for which additional premium is required.
