Important Information

This document does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy securities. Any such offer will be made only by means of the Private Placement Memorandum (“PPM”) of the Participant Capital Fund I, L.P. (the “Partnership”), and will be subject to the terms and conditions contained therein. Please refer to the PPM for a detailed discussion of the fees, terms and risks associated with an investment in the Partner- ship. Interests in the Partnership are offered only pursuant to the terms of the PPM.

Investing in the Partnership involves significant risks not associated with other investment vehicles and is suitable only for persons of adequate financial means who have no need for liquidity. There can be no assurances or guarantees that: (i) the Partnership’s investment strategy will prove successful, or (ii) investors will not lose all or a portion of their investment in the Partnership.

There is no secondary market in Interests and none is expected to develop. Interests may not be transferred or resold and an investor does not have a right to redeem Interests except as permitted only with the written consent of the General Partner and under applicable federal and state securities laws. Investors should be aware that they will be required to bear the financial risks of this investment for the entire term of the Partnership, which is a minimum of five years with the option to renew twice for 1yr intervals.

An investor should consider the Partnership as a supplement to an overall investment program and should only invest if willing to undertake the risks involved. Investors who are subject to income tax should be aware that an investment in the Partnership is likely (if the Partnership is successful) to create taxable income or tax liabilities in excess of cash distributions to pay such liabilities.

There is no guarantee of future performance. The Partnership has no previous operating history and will be entirely dependent on the abilities of the General Partner and Manager. There can be no assurance that either investment-level or Partnership-level targeted returns will be realized or that periodic distributions will be made.

The Fund’s Investments will be subject to the risks inherent in investments in and / or ownership in real estate assets. These risks include, but are not limited to, the burdens of ownership of real property, adverse changes to general and local economic conditions, the supply and demand for properties, fluctuations in occupancy and rates, the financial resources of tenants, changes in environmental and other laws and other variables as outlined in the PPM. The Partnership’s investments may also be adversely affected if the property managers employed by the Partnership perform inadequately or are not adequately supervised by the Partnership.

Because the Partnership may participate in a limited number of Investments, the aggregate Partnership returns may be adversely affected by the unfavorable performance of even a single Investment. In addition, the diversification of the Partnership’s Investments could be even further limited to the extent the Partnership invests a significant portion of its capital in a transaction and is unsuccessful in selling of that Investment. The real estate market can be relatively illiquid at times, which may limit the ability of the Partnership to sell of an asset.
