Performance


Over the past 10 years, ff Venture Capital has consistently achieved a 30%+ gross IRR over invested capital. This is equivalent to a 3x net IRR over committed capital given the time horizon, our historic cadence of investing and our typical expense structure, and compares favorably to other venture capital funds:

Disclaimer:

This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the private securities litigation reform act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of ff Rose Venture Capital Fund, L.P. or sister fund (the “fund”) to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. When used in this presentation, statements that are not statements of current or historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Without limiting the foregoing, the words “plan,” “intend,” “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “could,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” or “continue” or similar expressions or other variations or comparable terminology are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Except as required by law, the fund undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Internal rates of return are calculated based on the appreciation of both realized and unrealized investments. Gross internal rates of return do not reflect deductions for fees, expenses and carried interest that would be paid by fund investors. Internal rates of return that are presented net of fees and expenses (net IRR) reflect deductions for management fees, expenses, and carried interest paid by fund investors at time of exit, but do not reflect carried interest which may be payable on companies which have not yet had an exit. While neither the fund nor any affiliated fund (collectively, ffVC funds) is currently offering securities for sale.

This presentation has been prepared solely for prospective investors considering the purchase of limited partnership interests in ffVC funds when and if such limited partnership interests may be offered for sale (the “interests”). This presentation is not an offer to sell to any person, or a solicitation to any person to buy, interests in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer or solicitation would be prohibited by law. The interests have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended or applicable state or foreign securities laws. Neither the securities and exchange commission nor any state or foreign regulatory authority have passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of this presentation or endorsed the merits of prior offerings, and such federal, state and foreign regulatory authorities will not do so when and if an ffVC fund may offer limited partnership interests or other securities for sale. The economic benefits from an investment in the fund depend upon many factors beyond the control of the general partner and its affiliates. Venture capital investments involve a high degree of business and financial risk that can result in substantial losses, as more fully described in the confidential offering memorandum that will be available when and if an ffVC fund shall offer interests or other securities for sale.
