Correct me if I'm wrong, which I may certainly be, but in that scenario, wouldn't TB be responsible for the cap benefit obtained while he was with them, while we're only responsible for the benefit while he was with us? So of the 17 million total benefit 5.33 of it is applied to TB while we're responsible for 10.66 of it.
