Important Information on Investment Limited Partnerships
and Foreign Limited Partnerships

Risk involved with Investment Limited Partnerships and Foreign Limited Partnerships

BVAM solicits investors with respect to the handling of private placements based on the business agreement with the general partners of the fund of investment limited partnerships and foreign limited partnerships (hereinafter referred to as the "partnerships"). Partnerships predominantly invest in securities, including domestic and foreign unlisted shares whose prices and values may fluctuate; therefore, there is no guarantee that the principal amount invested is to be preserved. In particular, the appraised values of unlisted shares not only fluctuate reflecting the business activities and performance of the issuer of the said shares and the market/economic situation, but also are likely to vary depending on which type of calculation method is to be adopted since there exist several types of calculation methods for appraisal values. Under such circumstances, when the appraisal value of invested securities decreases because of the influence of such elements, the appraisal value of the partnerships also decreases, which may cause a loss of the principal.

In addition, with regard to foreign currency-denominated securities among the securities invested by the partnership s and the partnerships themselves held by the investors, if the value of the yen increases against a foreign currency (the yen gets stronger) compared to the value of the yen at the time of having initially acquired such securities, there is a possibility of a foreign exchange loss.

In general, the period for investment (capital contribution) in partnerships tends to be long and restrictions are imposed on a cancellation before maturity or a transfer/reselling of an equity interest. Therefore, this involves a huge liquidity risk.

On Fees and Other Costs Involved

General partners of the partnership are to bear the fees and other commissions under the business agreements with us, BVAM. However, the amounts thereof are to be determined through individual consultations with general partners of the fund; therefore, it is not possible to state here in advance the rates, calculation methods, and maximum size.Please note that, BVAM does not receive any fees or other commissions directly from our customers.

(* Attention)

Although the description of the risks shown above represents major risks on the assumption of partnerships in general, risks are not necessarily limited to those listed above. The risks involved with partnerships in general vary significantly in the risk profile and characteristics depending on each partnership; therefore, you are strongly advised to read and refer to the pre-transaction information and the relevant partnership agreements thoroughly upon making the investment decision on your own.

Management Agreement and Investment Advisory Agreement

Investment objectives and types of transactions to be made for the investment advisory or discretionary investment management agreement are to be determined upon consultation with clients.

Investment advisory fee and discretionary investment management fee as compensation for relative services provided are to be determined based on the company's prefixed fee table based on the asset amount to be managed, investment objectives, method of investment and duration of the management services, and will be determined for each case individually.
