(4) Surplus as regards policyholders (total capital and surplus) as of the thirty-first day of December next preceding.
(4) (5) A brief statement as to the effect of the proposed dividend upon the insurer's surplus and the reasonableness of surplus in relation to the insurer's outstanding liabilities and the adequacy of surplus relative to the insurer's financial needs, including an analysis of the factors contained in IC 27-1-23-4(f).
(5) (6) If the insurer is a life insurer, the net gain from operations for the twelve (12) month period ending December 31 next preceding.
