In case of a claim under this policy, the Company shall have the following additional options:

(a) To Pay or Tender Payment of the Amount of Insurance or to Purchase the Bonds.

(i) to pay or tender payment of the Amount of Insurance under this policy together with any costs, attorneys' fees and expenses incurred by the insured claimant, which were authorized by the Company, up to the time of payment or tender of payment and which the Company is obligated to pay; or

(ii) in case loss or damage is claimed under this policy by an insured owner or legal holder of any of the bonds referred to in Schedule A, to purchase such bond or bonds for the amount owing thereon together with any costs, attorneys' fees and expenses incurred by the insured claimant, which were authorized by the Company, up to the time of purchase and which the Company is obligated to pay.

If the Company offers to purchase said bond or bonds as herein provided, such insured shall transfer, assign and deliver said bond or bonds, together with any collateral securing the same, to the Company upon payment therefor.

Upon the exercise by the Company of the option provided for in paragraphs a(i), all liability and obligations to the insured under this policy, other than to make the payment required in that paragraph, shall terminate, including any liability or obligation to defend, prosecute or continue any litigation, and the policy shall be surrendered to the Company for cancellation.
