In the event that a protective order or other remedy is not obtained pursuant to clause (c) above, you agree to use reasonable best efforts to obtain assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded to Workspace Data disclosed.

Notwithstanding the obligation of confidentiality set out herein to the contrary, to comply with Treas. Reg. Section 1.6011-4(b)(3)(i), you (and your employees, representatives or other agents) may disclose to any and all persons, without limitation of any kind, the U.S. federal income tax treatment and tax structure of a Carmel Partners Fund or any transactions undertaken by a Carmel Partners Fund, it being understood and agreed, for this purpose, (a) the name of or contact information for, or any other identifying information regarding, a Carmel Partners Fund or any existing or future investor (or any employee or affiliate thereof) of a Carmel Partners Fund, or any investment or transaction entered into by the relevant Carmel Partners Fund, (b) any performance information relating to a Carmel Partners Fund or its investments and (c) any performance or other information relating to a Carmel Partners Fund or previous by a Carmel Partners Fund does not constitute such tax treatment or tax structure information.

Nothing in this paragraph shall limit your ability to make any disclosure to your tax advisors or to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service or any other taxing authority.


Not an Offer


You have been provided access to any Workspace Data for informational purposes only and the provision of such access does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy interests in any asset in which any Carmel Partners Fund has invested or in any Carmel Partners Fund. No such offer or solicitation is being made and any such offer or solicitation, if made, may be made only through a private offering pursuant to the confidential private placement memorandum of the applicable Carmel Partners Fund (as amended, amended and restated and/or supplemented from time to time, and including, without limitation, any legends contained therein, the “Memorandum”) and such Carmel Partners Fund’s constituent documents, which will prevail in case of conflict. Workspace Data is qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable Memorandum, which contains or will contain information about the investment objectives of, and the terms and conditions of an investment in, the applicable Carmel Partners Fund, as well as certain tax information, risk disclosures and information about conflicts of interest and should be read carefully before subscribing for interests in the applicable Carmel Partners Fund. An investment in any Carmel Partners Fund entails a high degree of risk, and no assurance can be given that such Carmel Partners Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved or that investors will receive a return of their capital contributions.


No person has been authorized to make any statement concerning any Carmel Partners Fund other than as set forth in the applicable Memorandum, and any statements made that are not contained therein may not be relied upon. Prospective investors should have the financial ability and willingness to accept the risks and lack of liquidity that are characteristic of the investment in a Carmel Partners Fund. There will be no public market for interests in a Carmel Partners Fund, and such interests, subject to certain limited exceptions, will not be transferable.


Offers and sales of interests in any Carmel Partners Fund will not be registered under the laws of any jurisdiction and will be made solely to persons that are both “qualified purchasers” (within the meaning of section 3(c)(7) of the U.S. Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and as defined in section 2(a)(51) of such Act) and “accredited investors” (as defined in Regulation D under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended).


No Workspace Data has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, any securities administrator under any state securities laws or any other governmental or self-regulatory authority, subject to any disclosure to the contrary in the applicable Memorandum. No governmental authority has passed on the merits of any Carmel Partners Fund, the interests in any Carmel Partners Fund or the adequacy of Workspace Data. Any representation to the contrary is unlawful.


Workspace Data is intended only for persons resident in jurisdictions where access would not be contrary to applicable laws or regulations. Interests in a Carmel Partners Fund may not be eligible for sale in some states or countries. You should inform yourself as to the legal requirements and tax consequences of an investment in a Carmel Partners Fund within the countries of your citizenship, residence, domicile and place of business.


No Advice


No person should construe Workspace Data as legal, tax, accounting, investment or other advice. Any decision to invest in a Carmel Partners Fund should be made after reviewing the applicable Memorandum and constituent documents, making your own inquiries, investigations and evaluations and consulting your own advisors as to the legal, tax, financial and investment implications of an investment in such Carmel Partners Fund in order to make an independent determination of the suitability and consequences of an investment in such Carmel Partners Fund. Carmel does not make any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of Workspace Data. You should carefully review the detailed discussion in the risk factors and potential conflicts of interest section of the applicable Carmel Partners Fund’s Memorandum.


No Recommendation of Securities


References to investments made by a Carmel Partners Fund in Workspace Data are presented to illustrate the application of such Carmel Partners Fund’s investment process only and should not be considered a recommendation, statement of opinion or endorsement.


Date of Materials; Information Sources


Unless otherwise indicated, Workspace Data is dated as of date indicated therein and will not be updated or otherwise revised to reflect information that may subsequently become available or changes occurring after such date. The posting of Workspace Data does not imply that the information contained therein is correct as of any time subsequent to the date indicated thereon. In addition, certain information contained in Workspace Data (which may include economic and market information) has been obtained from sources prepared by third parties and other publicly available sources, which in certain cases have not been updated. Certain economic, financial, market and other data and statistics produced by governmental agencies or other sources set forth in Workspace Data or upon which Carmel’s analysis and decisions rely may prove inaccurate. Any use of information, assumptions or analysis from third-party sources does not imply that Carmel has independently verified or otherwise agrees with such information, assumptions, analyses or figures. While such information, assumptions and analyses are believed to be reliable, Carmel does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of such information, assumption or analyses and such information, assumption and analyses have not been independently verified by Carmel.


None of the individual members or any employee or officer of Carmel referred to in Workspace Data hold themselves out to any person for any purpose as a general partner. Statements contained in Workspace Data that are attributable to Carmel or Carmel’s investment professionals are not made in any person’s individual capacity, but rather on behalf of Carmel or the general partner of the Carmel Partners Fund.


Carmel reserves the right to amend or replace any Workspace Data at any time, but is under no obligation to update, or notify recipients of any subsequent update to, any Workspace Data.


In addition, you acknowledge and agree, whether or not you participate in a Carmel Partners Fund, that (i) Carmel does not owe or accept any duty with respect to Workspace Data or any use or manipulation thereof, whether in contract or in tort or however otherwise arising, (ii) any use or manipulation of Workspace Data (e.g., changing any information or formulas within Workspace Data) by you is your sole responsibility, and (iii) Carmel shall not be liable to you for any losses, damages, costs or expenses whatsoever arising from or relating to your receipt, use or manipulation of Workspace Data or any party who receives Workspace Data from you, including, without limitation, in contract, tort or under federal or state securities laws. As consideration for, and as a condition to, receiving Workspace Data, you (for itself and your successors and assigns) to the fullest extent not prohibited by law hereby waive and release any and all rights, claims and causes of action you may have at any time against Carmel based on Workspace Data or in connection with or arising out of your access to, or use or manipulation of, Workspace Data, as well as any inaccuracy or incompleteness of Workspace Data for your purposes. Accordingly, if you wish to rely upon Workspace Data, you do so entirely at your own risk.


Forward-Looking Information


Certain information contained in Workspace Data may constitute “forward-looking statements,” which can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “target,” “estimate,” “intend,” “continue,” or “believe,” the negatives thereof, other variations thereon or comparable terminology. Actual events or the actual performance of any Carmel Partners Fund or its investments may differ materially from those contemplated in such forward-looking statements. You should pay close attention to the assumptions underlying the analyses and forecasts (if any) contained in Workspace Data. Although such assumptions are believed to be reasonable in light of the information available at the time of the relevant forward-looking statements, they have been prepared based on analyses made by Carmel, which, by necessity contain certain assumptions and forecasts of unknowable future events, including interest rates, capitalization rates, occupancy rates, market conditions and the ability to source and make acquisitions that meet the investment objectives of a Carmel Partners Fund. Such assumptions (and the analyses, targets and/or forecasts) may require modification as additional information becomes available and as economic and market developments warrant; Carmel is under no obligation to make such modifications. Nothing contained in Workspace Data may be relied upon as a guarantee, promise, assurance or a representation as to the future.


Return Information


Unless otherwise indicated therein, Information regarding investment returns in Workspace Data may not reflect deductions of expenses, management fees and carried interest, which may be substantial. Financial information in Workspace Data, including valuations and internal rates of return figures, have been produced using varying procedures, assumptions and methodologies. In the case of portfolios of realized and unrealized investments, the return information is based on the actual distributions and contributions and estimated liquidation values as of the calculation date. While Carmel believes that the estimates are based on reasonable assumptions, actual results will depend on, among other factors, future operating results, the value of the assets and market conditions at the time of disposition, any related transaction costs and the timing and manner of sale, and may vary materially from the estimates indicated in Workspace Data and the variations may be significant.


As used throughout Workspace Data and unless otherwise indicated therein, (a) IRRs are calculated based on the dates on which capital was contributed by investors or distributed to investors, (b) multiples are calculated by taking total distributions divided by total contributions, (c) gross IRRs and gross multiples reflect gross fund- or asset-level returns before reduction for management fees, expenses of the relevant Carmel Partners Fund, abandoned pursuit costs, carried interest to the general partner of the relevant Carmel Partners Fund, transaction costs, loan prepayment costs and closing costs and (d) net IRRs and net multiples reflect gross fund- or asset-level returns net of management fees, expenses of the relevant Carmel Partners Fund, abandoned pursuit costs and carried interest to the general partner of the relevant Carmel Partners Fund, but not net of transaction costs, loan repayment costs or closing costs or partially realized investments. A Carmel Partners Fund may use a credit facility as a temporary source of capital which may have delayed or eliminated the need to call such capital from investors of such Carmel Partners Fund. Because IRRs and multiples are calculated based on the date of capital contributions by investors, the reported fund-level IRRs and fund-level multiples would be lower had credit facility been not used and the calculation of IRRs and multiples been based on the date of each investment rather than the date of each capital contribution by investors.


You should bear in mind that past or projected performance is not necessarily indicative of future results, and there can be no assurance that comparable results will be achieved, that target returns will be met or that a Carmel Partners Fund will be able to implement its investment strategies or achieve its investment objectives. Prospective investors are encouraged to contact Carmel representatives to discuss the procedures, assumptions and methodologies used to calculate the investment returns and other information provided on this Portal.
