Given the nature of the privately negotiated investments generally made by New Mountain, public indices may not be appropriate benchmarks for comparing performance. Public benchmark returns do not include receipt or reinvestment of dividends paid(2) Reflects stock price appreciation only.

12 NMC Transaction Footnotes Capital invested represents the aggregate amount invested by New Mountain in each portfolio company.Realized proceeds include all cash dividends, interest income and other payments received from or in respect of portfolio companies as well as cash distributions from the sale of securities as of December 30, All figures are gross, before expenses, management fees and carried interest, if any.Unrealized investments and the remaining portions of partially realized and/or publicly traded investments have been valued as of December 30, 2005, at original cost and closing prices as of December 30, 2005, respectively.IRRs are calculated based on daily investment inflows and outflows, with the return annualized. Gross IRRs shall mean an aggregate, compound, annual gross internal rate of return on investments. In the case of portfolios of realized and unrealized investments, the gross IRRs are based on realizations and internal valuations of New Mountain as of the applicable date. Internal rates of return are presented on a “gross” basis (i.e., they do not reflect the management fees, carried interest, taxes, transaction costs and other expenses to be borne by investors in the Fund, which in the aggregate are expected to be substantial); for a description of such management fees and carried interest, see “VII. Summary of Principal Terms.” Prospective investors upon request may obtain a hypothetical illustration of the effect of such fees, expenses and other charges on such returns. Actual realized returns on unrealized investments 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, all of which may differ from the assumptions on which the valuations used in the prior performance data contained herein are based. Accordingly, the actual realized returns on unrealized investments may differ materially from the returns indicated herein.Based on $27.20 closing price (December 30, 2005) 6,956,522 shares on an “as converted” basis.
