Insuranceopedia explains Contingent Business Income Insurance
For businesses whose income is contingent upon a third party upholding it's end of the arrangement, a business interruption to the third party can cause substantial losses to the business. For example, a solar panel company whose key supplier experiences a major business interruption can cause tremendous losses for the solar company. Contingent business income insurance is designed to provide compensation for such losses. This type of insurance can reimburse lost income and also ongoing expenses for the business during the major interruption.
