Dear Investors,
Over 28 years ago, Paul Leff and I started a money management firm. Our catalyst
oriented value approach combined financial analysis and active engagement with
management teams to create attractive opportunities with asymmetric risk/reward.
During this time, we provided capital to many companies and countries facing stress and
distress. Our style worked well for many years and we had the pleasure of hiring,

how much I have valued your support and trust. Thank you for your partnership over the
All my best,
Richard Perry
