17 Some alternatives to TCA funding Do not copy or distribute.17 Equity… still very scarce, and invariably owners believe it is too dilutive, expensive and permanent. Bank Debt… scarce, avoided by prudential and balance sheet constraints. Alternative/Mezzanine, tends to be scarce, onerous, and carry equity (dilutive) trails. So, typically TCA appeals as: It favours growing, higher margin businesses. It is capable of being re-paid/re-financed once growth has delivered returns It can be flexible/adaptive It is a short and reasonably predictable process and outcome TCA tends to understand these SMEs – we currently have over circa 60% repeat business If the business foregoes the opportunity, there tends to be an opportunity cost/gross profit foregone.

This document is not intended to be, nor should it be construed or used as an offer to sell, or a solicitation of any offer to buy shares or limited partnership interests any funds managed by TCA If any offer is made, it shall be pursuant to a definitive Private Placement Memorandum prepared by or on behalf of a specific fund which contains detailed information concerning the investment terms and the risks, fees and expenses associated with an investment in that fund. Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) nor any state securities administrator has approved or disapproved, passed on, or endorsed, the merits of these securities. The Manager does not accept any responsibility or liability whatsoever caused by any action taken in reliance upon information herein.

TCAs interests will be offered and sold only to "Accredited Investors" as such terms are defined under federal securities laws. Prospective investors should inform themselves and take appropriate advice as to any applicable legal requirements and any applicable taxation and exchange control regulations in the countries of their citizenship, residence or domicile which might be relevant to the subscription, purchase, holding, exchange, redemption or disposal of any investments. No statement herein supersedes any statement to the contrary in the Fund's confidential offering memorandum. With respect to the present document and/or its accessories, the Manager makes no warranty or representation, whether express or implied, and assumes no legal liability for the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information disclosed.

Disclaimer Do not copy or distribute.23

24 Performance The performance information herein has been prepared by or on behalf of TCA and has not been independently audited or verified except for certain year-end data. Investment returns may vary from the stated objectives so that investors may have a gain or a loss when they redeem their investment. As with any investment vehicle, past performance cannot assure any level of future results. Returns (which may include the reinvestment of dividends, capital gains and other earnings) are shown net of all fees and expenses. The results reflected in any performance information are not necessarily indicative of future results. Investments in a Fund entail numerous risks including the loss of capital. Current year returns may be subject to adjustment during the year-end audit. This information may include "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the "Reform Act"). TCA claims the protection of the safe-harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Reform Act. These forward-looking statements are often characterized by the terms "may," "believes," "projects," "expects," or "anticipates," and do not reflect historical facts. Specific forward-looking statements could be in reference/ implication, but not limited to/of: impact of the company's expansion plan, and new business development success, future financial results, development and acquisition of new product lines, the impact of competitive products or pricing from technological changes, the effect of economic conditions and other uncertainties. The information contained herein does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to purchase any security or investment product. Any such offer may only be made by means of delivery of an approved confidential offering memorandum and only in those jurisdictions where permitted by law. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives of the Fund will be achieved. The performance representations contained herein are not representations that such performance will continue in the future. There may be sharp differences between prior performance results; such performance should not be construed as an indicator of future performance. Performance information and/or results, unless otherwise indicated, are un-audited and their appearance reflects the estimated returns net of all expenses, including the management and performance fees similar to those of the Fund. The information contained herein does not take into account the particular investment objectives or financial circumstances of any specific person who may receive it. Before making an investment, prospective investors are advised to carefully review the offering memorandum with their advisers to determine whether investing in the Fund is suitable. An investment in the Fund is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Opportunities for withdrawal and transferability of interests can be restrictive. As a result, investors may not have access to capital except according to the terms of withdrawal specified within the confidential offering memorandum and other related documents. Disclaimer Do not copy or distribute.24

25 Alternative Investment Risks Investments in alternative investments entail substantial risk and are not intended as a complete investment program. The profitability and return of alternative investments are dependent upon numerous factors, including the active management of TCAs portfolio, as well as general macroeconomic variables such as interest rates and the foreign exchange markets. There is no secondary market for interests in many alternative investments and none is expected to develop. Alternative investments are designed only for sophisticated investors who are able to bear the economic risk of losing all of their investment. Alternative investments: (1) often engage in leveraging and other speculative investment practices that may increase the risk of investment loss; (2) can be highly illiquid; (3) are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors; (4) may involve complex tax structures and delays in distributing important tax information; (5) are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds; and (6) often charge high fees. Current Information Opinions expressed are current opinions as of the date appearing in this material only. While the data contained herein has been prepared from information that TCA believes to be reliable, TCA does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of such information. Use of Indexes Market index information shown herein is included to show relative market performance for the periods indicated and not as standards of comparison, since these are unmanaged, broadly based indices which differ in numerous respects from the portfolio composition of the Fund. Market index information was compiled from sources that TCA believes to be reliable. No representation or guarantee is made hereby with respect to the accuracy or completeness of such data. Index Definitions The S&P 500 Stock Index is an unmanaged market capitalization index of 500 US equities generally considered to be representative of US stock market activity. The Merrill Lynch High Yield Master II is an unmanaged benchmark index generally considered as a measure of the broad high yield market. Disclaimer Do not copy or distribute.25
