Some new results about the NBU(2) class of life distributions are obtained. Firstly, it is proved that the decreasing with time of the increasing concave ordering of the excess lifetime in a renewal process leads to the NBU(2) property of the interarrival times. Secondly, the NBU(2) class of life distributions is proved to be closed under the formation of series systems. Finally, it is also shown that the NBU(2) class is closed under convolution operation.
