SECTION 2 Portfolio Valuation Services Private and Confidential
Portfolio Valuation Services Transparent Valuation in a Complex World The last few years have demonstrated the severe risks caused by inadequate disclosure regarding complex and hard-to-value investments. In a world that favors liquidity and transparency, the need for independent and supportable portfolio valuations has never been greater. Given the material impact that the measurement of certain riskier or private investments can have on the Net Asset Value, it is instrumental to have a professional firm like Madison Street Capital that has the technical and practical experience to assist in providing correct and accurate fair values. With the convergence and adoption of tighter global financial accounting standards, firms that hold Level II and III assets are increasingly being demanded by auditors (and investors) to support the validity and integrity of their methodologies and marks. That support often is best provided by an outside firm that has deep expertise with the types of investments and the unique risks that each structure presents. Private and Confidential 7

On-Going Experience/Client Communication Madison Street Capital provides on-going valuation services to several of its clients, especially as it pertains to the periodic updating of fair value estimates. MSC is proactive with its clients to keep abreast of current developments. Although our approach takes into consideration changes to internal and external factors, we understand the need for consistency and our senior reviewers ensure that there are no significant fluctuations in the value (unless there are extraordinary causes that would warrant it). Upon completion of initial due diligence and conducting its independent valuation analyses, a draft summary of the valuation is provided to the client. This allows the client to provide initial feedback on the assumptions and preliminary conclusions, prior to sending the final report. The nature of feedback is typically potential factual inconsistencies versus subjective differences of opinion, which is in adherence with our independence policy. Our findings and analyses are well-documented in a written report with our assumptions and valuation methodologies clearly explained and supported.

Another important component to our service offering is that we try to take full advantage of all the resources that are made available. For example, as an investment bank, we are able to draw upon certain capital market data that can be useful in supporting our valuations of hardto-value and complex securities where there is limited public data. Finally, our methodology is predicated on transparency and the ability to re-perform it. We believe that this an important attribute to the audit process and enables our clients’ auditors to test our work product in the most efficient manner.
