The pre-tax loss from casualty business included $105 million in workers' compensation:

reserve discount accretion (credit liability/debit claims-expense); or, (credit increase in reserve to debit increase in deferred charge asset for retro-contracts); and

deferred charge amortization (credit retro-asset?, debit claims-expense); as well as,

legal costs (credit cash, debit lawyer-expense)... associated with ongoing regulatory investigations.
-------------------------------------------------

The only part that resembles retroactive insurance could be the deferred charge amortization; it makes sense to me it is part of AU acquisition. Not sure.
