CCAP carries its investments on its books at fair value in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the
United States. CCAP uses the best information it has available to
estimate fair value. Fair value for private equity interests is based
on the most recent financial information provided by the fund
managers, adjusted for subsequent transactions; such as calls or
distributions, as well as other information judged to be reliable
that indicates valuation changes, including realizations and other
portfolio company events. The value of any public security known to
be owned by the funds based on the most recent information reported
to us by the fund managers has been marked to market as of September
30, 2007 and a liquidity discount has been applied to such securities
based on an estimate of the liquidity discount applied by the fund
managers in calculating net asset values.
Note: Performance fees due to the asset manager are accrued in the
third month of each quarter to the extent they are earned.
