Investment Performance at Prior Firms
All investment activity described prior to January 2012 and any investments denoted as “Pre-Fund” or “Pre-Kainos”, represent investments for which one or more members of the Kainos team had primary responsibility for certain phases of the selected portfolio companies. Information included regarding portfolio companies at a prior investment firm are included for informational purposes only to demonstrate sector experience. In each case, a senior member of the Kainos team led or co-led two or more important phases of the investment (sourcing, diligence/underwriting, operational restructurings, monitoring/implementing operational initiatives and add-on acquisitions, exit) while working at their respective previous firms. However, to the extent any such assets were held after the Kainos team member departed, neither Kainos nor its team members had any ability to affect or influence the performance of such prior investments at the prior investment firm as the members of the Kainos team were no longer affiliated with the prior investment firm. And although a senior member of the Kainos team had primary responsibility for certain phases of the investment, other personnel from such prior investment firms, and/or affiliated entities thereof, were also involved, and such assistance may have been material.
Comments Regarding Kainos
Comments provided by executives of portfolio companies or partners of the firm are provided to demonstrate the benefits of working with the Kainos team. They are not provided to solicit limited partners in a Kainos fund. Some individuals featured in the comments may also have an interest in a Kainos fund; such individuals’ comments are not offered on the basis of being an investor in a Kainos fund, but rather as an individual with experience working with the Kainos team.
