Valiant Capital Management (VCM) employs a global, long/short equity investment approach that is designed to generate superior risk-adjusted returns through a flexible investment mandate. The firm's Core Funds invest in and trade securities consisting primarily of equity and equity-related securities that are traded publicly and privately in US and non-US markets. A portion of the Funds' assets are invested in illiquid securities, which generally are restricted securities of public and private companies. The Funds also invest in preferred stocks, convertible securities, warrants, rights, options (including covered and uncovered puts and calls and over-the-counter options), swaps and other derivative instruments, bonds and other fixed income securities, non-US currencies, futures, options on futures, other commodity interests and money market instruments. In managing their funds, VCM engages in short-selling, margin trading, hedging and other investment strategies. While the firm intends to focus on investments in publicly traded equities, they may invest across the capital structure as compelling opportunities present themselves, both long and short. The investment objective of the Valiant India Opportunities Master Fund LP is to generate superior returns by forming a concentrated collection of the VCM's best ideas in India that are appropriate for a long-only structure. VCM also manages the Valiant Employee Investment Fund LLC, a fund created for employee investments that VCM determines are not appropriate for the Core Funds and the India Funds.

SQN invests principally, but not solely, in equity and equity-related securities and commodities that are traded publicly in U.S. and non-U.S. markets on behalf of its clients, but it is authorized to enter into any type of investment transaction that it deems appropriate under the terms of the client's partnership or other account agreement. Investments will be made based on SQN's conviction in realizing value with limited company management interaction, or by means of a constructive dialogue. The firm believes that strategic partners, private equity and activist approaches can also be used to achieve a sale at significant premiums.

Hitchwood Capital Management seeks to generate superior returns on capital while avoiding permanent impairment in value. The Hitchwood Capital Master Fund has broad and flexible investment authority, but its primary method is to invest in or short equity securities. Investments may include long or short positions in US or non-US publicly traded or privately issued or negotiated common stocks, preferred stocks, stock warrants and rights, convertible securities, currencies, options (purchased or written), futures contracts, commodities and forward contracts, corporate debt, bonds, notes, debentures or other obligations or debt assignments or participations, other fixed income securities, swaps (including interest rate, total return and credit default swaps), derivative instruments, fund interests and other securities, or financial instruments, including those of investment companies. The Master Fund sometimes takes large positions, resulting in a highly concentrated portfolio and it may also leverage its capital, sometimes significantly.Hitchwood generally makes capital allocation decisions based on bottom-up fundamental research. They focus on opportunities within certain business models or industries in which they have some specialized knowledge. Although these areas may change, at present, they include sectors within the following broad industry groups: consumer, technology, media and telecommunication, financials, business services, industrials, transportation, healthcare services, utilities, materials and energy. While Hitchwood typically invests in issuers domiciled in developed markets, they may also consider investments in nearly any domicile or market. In general, the Master Fund intends to maintain a net long bias.
