Accordingly, the projections are only an estimate. Actual results may vary from the projections, and the variations may be material. Some important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward looking statements include changes in interest rates, market, financial or legal uncertainties, the timing of acquisitions of the underlying assets, the timing and frequency of defaults on the underlying assets, amongst others. Consequently, the inclusion of projections herein should not be regarded as a representation by the manager of the results that will actually be achieved. New Century Advisors, LLC has no obligation to update or otherwise revise any projections, including any revisions to reflect changes in economic conditions or other circumstances arising after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, even if the underlying assumptions do not come to fruition.
