to File Investment Company Notice

On July 27, 2004, the Commissioner entered into a Stipulation and Agreement with Maxim Series Fund, Inc. of 8525 East Orchard Road, Greenwood Village, Colorado. The corporation is an open-end management investment company that has been in operation since 1982 and that is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Stipulation and Agreement alleged that, from January 1, 2003 until April 28, 2004, when a notice was filed, Maxim Series Fund, Inc. failed to make the yearly investment company notice filing required by Section 36b-21(c) of the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act for Maxim Loomis Sayles Bond Portfolio and failed to pay the fees required by Section 36b-21(c) of the Act. In resolution of the matter, Maxim Series Fund, Inc. agreed to pay $2,500 to the agency. Of that amount $2,000 constituted an administrative fine and $500 represented reimbursement for notice filing fees covering calendar year 2003.
