Testimonials of senior partners/portfolio company executives are provided to demonstrate the benefits of working with the Brightstar Capital Partners Team. They are not provided to solicit limited partners in a Brightstar Capital Partners Fund. Some operating partners/executives featured in the testimonials may also have an interest in a Brightstar Capital Partners Fund; such senior partner’s/executive’s testimonial is not offered on the basis of being an investor in a Brightstar Capital Partners Fund but rather as a senior partner/executive who works with the Brightstar Capital Partners Team. Additionally, Brightstar Capital Partners senior partners are compensated for their work with Brightstar Capital Partners.

Note on Senior Partners: Senior Partners are an integral component of the Firm’s strategy. Senior Partners provide operational experience, strategic insight and mentoring of management teams. They have extensive networks in their industries of experience, their communities and their circles of influence which enable them to help source new opportunities. Certain Senior Partners have extensive investment experience as well and will sit on the Firm’s investment committee and/or the boards of portfolio companies. Brightstar’s Senior Partners generally are limited partners of Brightstar (i.e., the Firm itself) who have broad business and investing experience and will generally provide assistance to Brightstar, the Partnership and its Portfolio Investments on a less than full-time basis. Senior Partners are not employees of Brightstar but will generally be extensively involved in the Partnership’s and Firm’s activities. Senior Partners will, for so long as they remain actively involved in the Partnership’s and Brightstar’s affairs, be considered “affiliates” of Brightstar for purposes of the Management Fee offset provisions of the Partnership Agreement. However, because the Senior Partners have outside business activities and other endeavors (including those in the private equity and asset management industries), they will not be considered “affiliates” of Brightstar for purposes of the Partnership Agreement’s restriction on formation of other funds, allocation of investments away from the Partnership and related conflict provisions. The nature of the relationship with each Senior Partner and the amount of time devoted or required to be devoted by them will vary considerably. In certain cases, they will provide Brightstar with industry-specific insights, assist in transaction due diligence, make introductions to and provide reference checks on management teams. In other cases, they may take on more extensive roles and serve as executives or directors on the boards of Portfolio Companies or contribute to the origination of new investment opportunities. Senior Partners will have the ability to co-invest alongside the Partnership pursuant to the General Partner’s annual side-by-side co-investment rights. Brightstar may have formal arrangements with these Senior Partners (which may or may not be terminable upon notice by any party), and in other cases the relationships may be more informal. There can be no assurance that any of the Senior Partners will continue to serve in such roles and / or continue their arrangements with Brightstar, the Partnership and / or any Portfolio Companies throughout the term of the Partnership.
