The Fund buys when it finds such companies generating or holding significant cash when compared to market values. Purchases are made without regard to categorization. The Fund also intends to invest in special situations, including, but not limited to, Chapter 11 reorganizations.

The Manager uses fundamental analysis to identify certain attractive characteristics of companies. Such characteristics may include, but are not limited to: high free cash flow yields in relation to market values and risk-free rates; sensible capital allocation policies; strong competitive positions; solid balance sheets; stress-tested owner/managers; participation in stressed industries having reasonable prospects for recovery; potential for long-term growth; significant tangible assets in relation to enterprise values; high returns on invested equity and capital; and the production of essential services and products. The Manager defines free cash flow as the cash a company would generate annually from operations after all cash outlays necessary to maintain the business in its current condition.
