Actual Cash Value EB 99 59

When an insured or the insurer—for underwriting reasons on older equipment—wishes to insure property loss by covered accidents on an actual cash value (ACV) basis rather than at full replacement cost, endorsement EB 99 59 09 07 is used. The endorsement contains a schedule of locations and covered equipment to be insured for ACV. Under this endorsement, the insurer agrees to pay the amount spent by the named insured to repair or replace covered property that is directly damaged by a breakdown. The payment will be the lesser of: the cost to repair or replace the damaged property with property of same kind, capacity, size or quality; or actual cash value of the damaged property.

The valuation of covered property will be as of the time of breakdown. And, the insurer will not pay for damaged property that is obsolete and useless to the named insured.
