Uncompensated Portfolio Company CEO Testimonial Statements on the Site. Certain statements about Cortec Group made by portfolio company executives herein are intended to illustrate Cortec Group’s business relationship with such persons, including with respect to Cortec Group’s facilities as a business partner, rather than Cortec Group’s capabilities or expertise with respect to investment advisory services. Portfolio company executives were not compensated in connection with their participation, although they generally receive compensation and investment opportunities in connection with their portfolio company roles, and in certain cases are also owners of portfolio company securities and/or investors in Cortec Group-sponsored vehicles. Such compensation and investments subject participants to potential conflicts of interest in making the statements herein.

Certain information in the case studies is based on Cortec Group’s due diligence at the time of investment, and/or analysis and opinions of Cortec Group and/or the applicable prospective portfolio company regarding economic conditions and prospective portfolio company initiatives, plans and opportunities. There can be no assurance such plans or initiatives will be implemented or opportunities will be realized, or that they will lead to investor returns. Further, references to the investments included in the case studies should not be construed as a recommendation of any particular investment or security.
