Not an Offer
You have been provided access to the 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 Carmel Partners Fund. Any such offer or solicitation, if made, may be made only pursuant to the confidential private placement memorandum of the applicable Carmel Partners Fund (as amended 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. The Workspace Data is qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable Memorandum, which contains or will contain information about the investment objectives, 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).
None of the 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 Memorandum. No governmental authority has passed on the merits of any Carmel Partners Fund offering or the adequacy of the Workspace Data. Any representation to the contrary is unlawful.
The 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 person should construe the 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 the Workspace Data.

No Recommendation of Securities
References to investments in the Workspace Data are presented to illustrate the application of Carmel’s investment process only and should not be considered a recommendation, statement of opinion or endorsement.
Date of Materials; Information Sources
Unless otherwise indicated, the 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 the 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. While such information is believed to be reliable, Carmel does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of such information and such information has not been independently verified by Carmel. Carmel reserves the right to amend or replace any of the Workspace Data at any time, but is under no obligation to update, or notify recipients of any subsequent update to, any of the Workspace Data.
Certain information contained in the 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 the Workspace Data. Although such assumptions are believed to be reasonable in light of the information presently available, 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 the Workspace Data may be relied upon as a guarantee, promise, assurance or a representation as to the future.
Information regarding investment returns in the Workspace Data may not reflect deductions of expenses, management fees and carried interest, which may be substantial. Financial information in the 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 the Workspace Data and the variations may be significant.
As used throughout the Workspace Data and unless otherwise indicated, “Gross IRR/Gross Multiple” reflect gross fund- or asset-level returns after reduction for any allocated interest expense associated with credit facility borrowings, but before reduction for management fees, general partner carried interest (both realized and assumed at liquidation) and other fund-level expenses. In addition, calculations of Gross IRR use the date of contribution by investors to an applicable Carmel Partners Fund for each relevant investment (i.e., the due date for the capital call notice or the date that the applicable capital contributions were made). A Carmel Partners Fund may fund investments by drawing under such Carmel Partners Fund’s credit facility in advance of calling capital from investors. Therefore, if calculations of Gross IRR used the date of each investment rather than the date of each contribution by investors, then Gross IRR would be lower. The Gross Multiple is calculated by taking total distributions divided by the total contributed equity.
“Net IRR/Net Multiple” reflect net fund-level returns after reduction for allocated interest expense associated with credit facility borrowings, and reduction for management fees, general partner carried interest (both realized and assumed at liquidation) and other fund-level expenses. In addition, calculations of Net IRR use the date of contribution by investors to an applicable Camel Fund for each relevant investment (i.e., the due date for the capital call notice or the date that the applicable capital contributions were made). A Carmel Partners Fund may fund investments by drawing under such Carmel Partners Fund’s credit facility in advance of calling capital from investors. Therefore, if calculations of Net IRR used the date of each investment rather than the date of each contribution by investors, then Net IRR would be lower. The Net Multiple is calculated by taking the net distributions divided by the total contributed equity.
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.

The interests in any such other fund vehicles may not be marketed, or offered for sale, to prospective investors in Sweden and the Manager will not accept any subscription for any such interests from any investor in Sweden, unless otherwise permitted in accordance with Swedish law.
Under the Collective Investment Schemes Act dated 23 June 2006 and revised on 28 September 2012 (the “CISA”), the offering, sale and distribution to investors other than qualified investors of units in a foreign collective investment scheme in or from Switzerland are subject to authorization by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority – FINMA and, in addition, the distribution to certain unregulated qualified investors of interests in such collective investment schemes may be subject to, inter alia, the prior appointment of a representative and a paying agent in Switzerland. Foreign collective investment schemes for these purposes include, inter alia, companies and other entities or schemes organized outside Switzerland (including those created on the basis of a collective investment contract or a contract of another type with similar effect) created for the purpose of collective investment, whether closed or open-end. There are reasonable grounds to believe that the Fund would be characterized as a foreign collective investment scheme under the CISA. Since the Fund has not been approved by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority - FINMA for distribution to investors other than qualified investors, any offering of the Interests, and any other form of solicitation of investors in relation to the Fund (including by way of circulation of offering materials or information, including the Materials), will be made to and directed at regulated qualified investors (“Regulated Qualified Investors”), as defined in Article 10 (3)(a) and (b) of the CISA. Accordingly, no Swiss representative or paying agent has been or will be appointed by the Fund pursuant to CISA. The Materials and/or any other offering materials relating to the Fund may be made available in Switzerland solely to Regulated Qualified Investors. Failure to comply with the above-mentioned requirements may constitute a breach of the CISA.
