There will be no public offer of the Ordinary Shares in the United States.

 

Switzerland

This website does not constitute an offer to investors in Switzerland.  The documentation of AGA has not been, will not be, and may not be able to be approved by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (“FINMA”) for distribution to non-qualified investors pursuant to Article 120 of the Swiss Federal Act on Collective Investment Schemes of 23 June 2006, as amended (“CISA”) and its implementing ordinance. Investors in the Ordinary Shares will not benefit from protection provided under the CISA or supervision by FINMA. Accordingly, the documentation of AGA may only be provided to qualified investors as defined in the CISA and its implementing ordinance.

The Ordinary Shares may be freely offered, distributed or sold, on-sold and the materials on the website may be freely circulated exclusively to the following qualified investors: regulated financial intermediaries (such as banks, securities dealers, fund management companies, asset managers of collective investment schemes and central banks) and regulated insurance companies.

The Ordinary Shares may only be offered, distributed, sold or on-sold and the materials on the website may only be circulated to other qualified investors if (i) AGA, or as the case may be, the Investment Manager has appointed a representative (“Swiss Representative”) and a paying agent (“Swiss Paying Agent”) in Switzerland, (ii) licensing / prudential supervision requirements for the distributor are fulfilled and (iii) the distributor has entered into a written distribution agreement with the Swiss Representative. Therefore, legal advice should generally be sought before providing the materials on this website to and offering, distributing or selling/on-selling the Ordinary Shares.

The materials on this website do not constitute an issuance prospectus pursuant to Articles 652a or 1156 of the Swiss Code of Obligations and may not comply with the information standards required thereunder. The Ordinary Shares will not be listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange, and consequently, the information presented on this website does not necessarily comply with the information standards set out in the relevant listing rules. The materials on this website do not constitute investment advice. They may only be used by those persons to whom they has been delivered in connection with the Ordinary Shares and may neither be copied nor directly or indirectly distributed or made available to other persons.

Hong Kong

This website is not directed or targeted at persons residing in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region ("Hong Kong") and the products referred to on the website are not available to persons residing in Hong Kong, unless permitted under the securities laws of Hong Kong

AGA has not been authorized as collective investment scheme by Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission ("SFC") pursuant to section 104 of Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Ordinance ("SFO"), nor have the materials on the website been approved by the SFC pursuant to section 105(1) of SFO or section 342C(5) of Hong Kong Companies (Winding Up and Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance ("CO") or registered by Hong Kong's Registrar of Companies pursuant to section 342C(7) of CO. Accordingly, no person may offer or sell in Hong Kong, by means of any document, any Ordinary Shares other than (a) to "professional investors" within the meaning of the SFO and the Securities and Futures (Professional Investor) Rules made thereunder; or (b) in other circumstances which do not result in the materials being a "prospectus" as defined in the CO or which do not constitute an offer to the public within the meaning of that ordinance.

Links to other websites

This Site contains links to other websites over which AGA has no control. AGA is not responsible for any material or information on those websites or for any services or products which may appear on them and shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from the use or receipt of the same. By creating a link to a third party website, AGA does not endorse or recommend any material, information, product or service appearing on that website.

 

Investors 

An investment in AGA may not be appropriate for your specific purposes or circumstances. You are responsible for obtaining your own legal, tax and financial advice before taking any action in relation to such investment; this Site is not intended to supply legal, tax or financial advice, and the Information should not be construed as a recommendation to take any such action. Investment in listed investment companies may involve special risks that could lead to a loss of all or a substantial portion of such investment.

 

Investment performance

If and to the extent that this Site contains information about the performance of investments previously made by AGA you should be aware that this information has not been audited or verified by an independent party, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and future investments may not achieve the same level of returns as previous investments. An investment in AGA may carry a high degree of risk. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested. No assurance can be given that the stated investment objectives will be achieved. Changes in rates of foreign exchange may cause the value of the investments to go up or down.

 

Forward-looking statements

The materials contained on the website may contain certain “forward-looking statements” regarding the belief or current expectations of AGA, Apax Guernsey Managers Limited (the "Investment Manager") and Apax Partners LLP (the "Investment Adviser") and members of their management and/or board of directors about the financial condition, results of operations and business of AGA. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Rather, they speak only as of their date, are based on views and assumptions held at that time and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the control of AGA, the Investment Manager and the Investment Adviser and are difficult to predict, that may cause the actual results, performance, achievements or developments of AGA or the industry in which it operates to differ materially from any future results, performance, achievements or developments expressed or implied from the forward-looking statements.  The target return and target dividend of AGA referred to in any materials contained on the website are based on performance projections produced by the Investment Adviser to the best of their knowledge and belief. The return and dividend figures quoted are targets only (which may or may not include figures which are based over the long-term on the performance projections of the investment strategy and market interest rates at the time of modeling) and therefore are subject to change.  There is no guarantee that such target return and target dividend of AGA can be achieved and past or targeted performance is no indication of current or future performance or results.  Prospective investors should not place any reliance on such targets in deciding whether to invest in AGA.  There can be no assurance that the strategy described herein will meet its objectives generally, or avoid losses.
