These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Rye Select Broad Market Portfolio Limited as of December 31, 2007, and the results of its operations, changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

  9. 9. RYE SELECT BROAD MARKET PORTFOLIO LIMITED (Incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands) Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2007 (1) Organization Rye Select Broad Market Portfolio, Limited (the “Company”) is a Cayman Islands exempted company with limited liability incorporated on August 23, 2001. The Company registered under the Mutual Funds Law of the Cayman Islands on August 24, 2001. The Company is an open-ended investment company that seeks to (i) achieve long term capital appreciation and (ii) consistently generate positive returns irrespective of stock market volatility or direction, while focusing on preservation of capital. The Company attempts to accomplish this investment objective by investing the majority of the assets of the Company with a select manager who employs a nontraditional investment strategy described as “split strike conversion”. This strategy consists of (i) purchasing equity shares, (ii) buying related out-of-the-money or at-the-money index put options representing the same number of underlying shares and, (iii) selling related out-of-the-money index call options representing a number of underlying shares equal the number of shares purchased. A properly executed strategy along these lines will limit losses if the price of the equity shares decline, while still affording upside potential (albeit capped at the strike price of the short call) should the price of the equity shares rise. The remainder of the assets of the Company may be invested with a diverse group of non-U.S. investment funds or similar vehicles whose managers employ a variety of investment strategies. These sophisticated investment strategies often require the use of derivative trading vehicles and index options. (2) Significant Accounting Policies (a) Basis of Presentation The accompanying financial statements are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and are expressed in United States dollars. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Amended and Restated Prospectus. (b) Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. (c) Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash balances and highly liquid investments with a maturity date of less than three months, but does not include investments in U.S. Treasury Bills. (d) Investment Valuation Investments in securities which are traded on a national securities exchange are valued at their last reported sales prices on the last day of the year on the national securities exchange on which such securities are principally traded. If there are no sales on that date on such exchange, then the securities are valued at the last reported bid quotation in the case of securities held long and at the 7 (Continued)
  10. 10. RYE SELECT BROAD MARKET PORTFOLIO LIMITED (Incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands) Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2007 last reported ask quotation in the case of securities sold short on that date on the national securities exchange on which the securities are traded. United States Treasury Bills are classified as investments and are stated at fair value based on readily available market quotations. All such Treasury Bills are on deposit with various exchanges and mature within one year from the balance sheet date. Investments in investment funds are valued at the net asset value supplied by the investee fund. The net asset value of the investee funds represents the amount the Company would receive if it were to liquidate its investments in the investee funds on that date. Purchases and sales of investment funds are recorded on a trade-date basis. Realized gains and losses are recognized on the first-in, first-out basis (“FIFO”). (e) Revenue Recognition Purchases and sales of investment securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. Realized gains and losses are recognized on a FIFO basis and are included in the Statement of Operations. Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date, net of any withholding taxes. Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis as earned. (f) Net Income Allocation All net investment income, realized and unrealized gains and losses of the Company are allocated to the share classes in proportion to the respective ownership interests of such share classes in the net assets of the Company on a monthly basis. (g) Financial Instruments The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities which qualify as financial instruments under the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 107, Disclosures About Fair Value of Financial Instruments, (“FAS 107”), approximates the carrying amount presented in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities. In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“FAS 157”). This accounting standard establishes a single authoritative definition of fair value, sets out a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. FAS 157 applies to fair value measurements already required or permitted by existing standards. FAS 157 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and the interim period within those fiscal years. As of December 31, 2007, the Company has not adopted FAS 157, but believes that there will not be a material effect on its financial statement amounts once adopted. However, additional disclosures will be required about the inputs used to develop the fair value measurements and the effect of certain fair value measurements on changes in shareholder’s net assets. 8 (Continued)
  11. 11. RYE SELECT BROAD MARKET PORTFOLIO LIMITED (Incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands) Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2007 (h) Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 150, Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Characteristics of both Liabilities and Equity (“FAS 150”), financial instruments mandatorily redeemable at the option of the holder are classified as liabilities when a redemption request has been received and the redemption amount has been determined. (i) Investor Servicing Fee The Company may enter into agreements with third-party advisors to provide distribution services to the Company. These agreements provide that an investor servicing fee of up to 1.0% per annum (0.083% per month) may be charged to each applicable shareholder’s account as of the last business day of each month, however no such fee was charged to a shareholder of the Company. (3) Investment Securities Held at Broker The clearing and depository operations for the Company’s security transactions are provided by one broker. At December 31, 2007 all of the investment securities owned, reflected in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities, other than the investments in investment funds, are positions with this clearing broker and consist of U.S. Treasury bills with yields to maturity approximating 3.17% and maturity dates ranging from February 21, 2008 to May 15, 2008. Management does not anticipate any issues as a result of this concentration. (4) Related Party Transactions (a) Management Fee On January 1, 2003, the Company entered into an amended agreement with Tremont (Bermuda) Limited (the “Investment Manager”). Under the terms of the amended agreement, the Company pays the Investment Manager a management fee of 1.50% per annum (0.125% per month) for Class A Shares, 1.75% per annum (0.146% per month) for certain Class B Shares and 1.50% per annum (0.125% per month) for Class D shares. From March 1, 2004 to July 1, 2007, the Company paid the Investment Manager a management fee of 2.25% per annum (0.1875% per month) for Class C Shares. Subsequent to July 1, 2007, the Company pays the Investment Manager a management fee of 1.75% (0.146% per month) for the Class C shares. Such management fee is subject to a reduction, in whole or in part, at the discretion of the Investment Manager. Management fees for the year ended December 31, 2007, were $14,543,205, of which $1,424,690 remains payable at December 31, 2007. The Investment Manager is not paid a management fee with respect to Class B1 Shares. The Investment Manager is a shareholder of the Company and a less than 10% owner of the parent company of an investor in the Company. At December 31, 2007, the Investment Manager owned 64.694 Class A Shares. This represents a 0.01% interest in the Company. In addition, the Investment Manager holds 100 voting Management shares. The Management shares are nonredeemable, nonparticipating shares, which have the sole voting rights in the Company. 9 (Continued)
  12. 12. RYE SELECT BROAD MARKET PORTFOLIO LIMITED (Incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands) Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2007 The Investment Manager has retained its affiliate, Tremont Partner, Inc. to serve as sub-advisor to the Company (the “Sub-Advisor”) at no additional cost to the Company and had delegated substantially all of its duties in respect of the Company to the Sub-Advisor. (b) Administrative Fee The Company has appointed the Sub-Advisor, to serve as administrator to the Fund. The Sub-Advisor receives a monthly administration fee calculated at the annual rate of 0.20% (0.017% per month) paid out of the Company’s assets (the “Administration Fee”). The Administration Fee is calculated as of the last Business Day of each calendar month and paid in arrears. Administration fees for the year ended December 31, 2007 were $1,894,003, of which $185,824 remained payable at December 31, 2007. Such administrative fee is subject to a reduction, in whole or in part, at the discretion of the Sub-Advisor. The Sub-Advisor is not paid an administration fee with respect to Class B1 Shares. (c) Investments in Investment Funds The Company is invested in Rye Select Activist Segregated Portfolio (“RSASP”) and Rye Select Equities Segregated Portfolio (“RSESP”). RSASP and RSESP are segregated portfolios of the Rye Select Fund Series SPC Limited, of which the Sub-Advisor of the Company serves as Investment Manager. The Company may subscribe to RSASP or RSESP monthly, and redeem from RSASP or RSESP quarterly. The Company’s investments in RSASP and RSESP are carried in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities at $9,375,011 and $15,004,929, respectively, at December 31, 2007. For the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company recorded a change in net unrealized appreciation from its investments in RSASP and RSESP in the amounts of $375,011 and ($495,071), respectively. (5) Sub-Administrator and Transfer Agent Effective July 1, 2007, The Bank of New York Mellon (the “Sub-Administrator”) was appointed as the Company’s Sub-Administrator and transfer agent. The Sub-Administration fee is calculated and is payable as of the last business day of each calendar month. The Sub-Administrator is also entitled to reimbursement of actual out of pocket expenses incurred on behalf of the Company. The fee was $198,472 for the year ended December 31, 2007, which is included in Professional fees on the Statement of Operations. As of December 31, 2007, $36,944 remained payable, which is included in Accrued expenses on the Statement of Assets and Liabilities. (6) Derivative Financial Instruments The Company’s activities include the purchase and sale of index options. These are used for trading purposes and for managing risk associated with the portfolio of securities. When the Company purchases an index option, an amount equal to the premium paid by the Company is recorded as an asset in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities and subsequently adjusted to the current fair value of the index option. Changes in fair value of index options are reflected in the accompanying Statement of Operations as a gain or loss as they occur. Premiums paid on index options that expire unexercised are treated by the Company on expiration date as a realized loss. The difference between premiums paid and the amount received on 10 (Continued)
  13. 13. RYE SELECT BROAD MARKET PORTFOLIO LIMITED (Incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands) Notes to Financial Statements December 31, 2007 exercising the index option is accounted for as a realized gain, or if the amount received is less than the premium paid, as a realized loss. Substantially all of the gain from investment activity results from trading in equity and equity related instruments, which include index options. At December 31, 2007, the Company did not hold any index options or other derivative financial instruments. In March 2008, the FASB issued Standards No. 161, Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (“FAS 161”). FAS 161 requires qualitative disclosures about objectives and strategies for using derivatives, quantitative disclosures about fair value amounts of and gains and losses on derivative instruments, and disclosures about credit-risk-related contingent features in derivative agreements. The application of FAS 161 is required for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008 and interim periods within those fiscal years. At this time, management has not yet adopted FAS 161 and is evaluating the implications of FAS 161 and its impact on the financial statements has not yet been determined. (7) Share Capital The Company’s authorized share capital is US$50,000 divided into 1,000,000 Class A, B, C, and D Shares, 999,900 undesignated redeemable participating nonvoting Shares, and 100 nonvoting Management shares, each having a par value of $0.01. Each of the outstanding Class A, Class B, Class C, and Class D Shares participate ratably with all other outstanding shares in the Company’s fees, expenses, assets and earnings with respect to such class of shares. Investors may subscribe to or redeem from the Company monthly. As of December 31, 2007, no Class C Shares were outstanding. Through a letter agreement dated September 1, 2007, the Investment Manager and the Administrator agreed to waive their respective fees with respect to an investment made by an advisory client (the “Client”) of the Administrator, as required by the Employee Retirement Income Act of 1974 (“ERISA”). In order to differentiate between those Class B shareholders that are subject to the Company’s management and administration fees and this client, the Sub-Administrator has designated such investors as Class B1 shareholders, however, no such share class has been legally formed by the Company. 11 (Continued)

However, the Company has received an undertaking dated February 18, 1997 from the Governor-in-Cabinet of the Cayman Islands as to tax concessions pursuant to Section 6 of the Tax Concessions Law (Revised) which provides that, for a period of twenty (20) years from the date of issuance of the undertaking, no law thereafter enacted in the Cayman Islands imposing any taxes or duty to be levied on income or capital assets, gains or appreciation will apply to any income or property of the Company. However, dividends received from certain investments are subject to and reported net of withholding taxes. During the current year, the Company adopted FASB Interpretation No. 48 Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes (“FIN 48”). FIN 48 provides guidance for how uncertain tax positions should be recognized, measured, presented and disclosed in the financial statements. FIN 48 requires the evaluation of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in the course of preparing the Company’s financial statements to determine whether the tax positions are “more-likely-than-not” of being sustained by the applicable tax authority. Tax positions with respect to tax at the Company level not deemed to meet the “more-likely-than-not” threshold would be recorded as a tax benefit or expense in the current year. The Investment Manager has concluded that the adoption of FIN 48 had no impact on the operations of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2007 and that no provision for income tax is required in the Company’s financial statements. 13 (Continued)
