(End of ad hoc release) Paul Bagley, Chairman of Fortune, comments: "Over the past 20 years, both Les Brun at Hamilton Lane and I at Lehman Brothers crossed path with Sanford and we were very pleased when he appeared on our radar screen for Independent Directors. The experience and truly global network that he was able to gather over his long and distinguished career will be of great benefit to Fortune. I expect him to be a valuable contributor to Fortune's strategy in becoming a niche private equity boutique whilst putting his broad Corporate Governance experience to work." Sanford G. Henry: "I always admired Paul Bagley's and Les Bruns' excellence and achievements in the Private Equity and Fund business. Hence I gladly accepted the opportunity to assist Fortune in the expansion and execution of its Private Equity strategy that was coincidently presented to me by certain mutual partners in the Middle East. It will be a great pleasure for me to be of help to build up the Private Equity business of Fortune Management as well as support the activities of the Fortune Wealth Management Group."
