investors. Despite widespread problems in the financial markets, we
found our investors' appetite remains strong for experienced investment
teams with differentiated approaches and proven strategies.'

It would appear that ADERANT was aquired by Francisco Partners for about 25MM. Good return – speaks well to the strength of ADERANT
