  15. 15. Data as of U.S. Private Equity Index and Benchmark Statistics June 30, 2012Description of Performance Measurement MethodologyCambridge Associates LLC (CA) has established a database to monitor investments made by venture capital and other alternative asset partnerships.On June 30, 2012, 986 U.S. private equity funds from the years 1986 through 2012 were included in the sample. Users of the analysis may find thefollowing description of the data sources and calculation techniques helpful to their interpretation of information presented in the report:1. Partnership financial statements and narratives are the primary source of information concerning cash flows and ending residual/ net asset values (NAV) for both partnerships and portfolio company investments.2. Recognizing the alternative asset communitys sensitivity to the distribution of information pertaining to individual fund investments, as a matter of policy CA only releases aggregated figures in its benchmark report.3. Vintage year is defined as the legal inception date as noted in a funds financial statement.4. CA uses both the internal rate of return and the end-to-end performance calculation in its benchmark reports: a. The internal rate of return (IRR) is a since inception calculation that solves for the discount rate, which makes the net present value of an investment equal to zero. The calculation is based on cash-on-cash returns over equal periods modified for the residual value of the partnership’s equity or portfolio company’s NAV. The residual value attributed to each respective group being measured is incorporated as its ending value. Transactions are accounted for on a quarterly basis, and annualized values are used for reporting purposes. Please note that all transactions are recorded on the 45th day or midpoint of the quarter. b. The end-to-end performance calculation is similar to the IRR, however it is measuring the return between two points in time. The calculation takes into account the beginning NAV as the initial investment. The subsequent quarterly cash flows and the ending NAV for the specified time period (i.e. one quarter, one year, etc.) are utilized in the same fashion as the IRR calculation. All returns greater than one year are annualized.5. Additional Definitions: a. Pooled return aggregates all cash flows and ending NAVs in a sample to calculate a dollar-weighted return. b. Arithmetic mean averages the individual fund IRRs included in a vintage year. c. Median is the middle fund IRR of the group of individual fund IRRs included in a vintage year. d. Equal-weighted pooled return equally weights all cash flows and ending NAVs based on paid in capital to calculate a dollar-weighted return. e. Upper/ lower quartile are the thresholds for the upper (top 25%) and lower (bottom 25%) quartiles based on the individual fund IRRs included in a vintage year. Can be used in conjunction with the median to determine quartile placement.6. Realization ratio exhibits (TPVI, DPI, RVPI): CA has independently calculated the proper realization ratio for each fund in each vintage year. Please note that each fund has been ranked within its respective vintage year by the corresponding realization ratio, as opposed to being ranked by IRR as they are ranked in the since inception IRR exhibit. As a result a funds ranking within its vintage year may change. For example, it is possible that a vintage year can have a different median fund when ranked by IRR vs. when ranked by TVPI, DPI or RVPI.7. Exhibits detailing data for portfolio companies are grouped by year of the fund’s initial investment in a company, as opposed to vintage year. | 14 Returns are gross returns.
