Note G - Members’ Equity


Allocations and Distributions


In accordance with our Operating Agreement, profits, gains and losses are to be credited to and charged against each member’s capital account in proportion to their respective capital accounts as of the close of business on the last day of each calendar month.


Distributions were paid monthly to members; however, on August 27, 2008, we suspended payment of distributions as a result of our current losses.


Contingency Reserve


In accordance with the Plan, we attempt to maintain a contingency reserve of approximately $300,000 for the payment of ongoing expenses, any contingent liabilities or to account for loan or other investment losses: however, the amount of the reserve may fluctuate based on cash expenditure requirements. Our manager has the discretion to increase or decrease the amount of the reserve, but will endeavor to ensure that the reserve is adequate to pay our outstanding obligations. The amount of the contingency reserve is based upon estimates and opinions of our manager or through consultation with an outside expert, if our manager determines that it is advisable to retain such expert. In determining the size of the reserve, our manager reviewed among other things, the value of our non-performing assets and the likelihood of repayment, our estimated contingent liabilities and our estimated expenses, including without limitation, estimated professional, legal and accounting fees, rent, payroll and other taxes, miscellaneous office expenses, facilities costs and expenses accrued in our financial statements.


Value of Members’ Capital Accounts


In accordance with Section 7.8 of our Operating Agreement, our manager reviewed the value of our assets during the year ended December 31, 2013. Based on this review, the value of members’ capital accounts was adjusted from $1.00 per unit to $1.09 per unit, as of January 1, 2014. The change in valuation is primarily for tax and capital account purposes and does not reflect the change in the value of the units calculated in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, unit prices calculated under GAAP may be different than the adjusted price per unit.


Liquidating Distributions


On January 26, 2010, April 8, 2010, September 17, 2010, May 25, 2011, June 15, 2012, and January 14, 2014 we made liquidating distributions to all Fund Members, in the aggregate amount of approximately $1.0 million, $0.9 million, $0.3 million, $0.3 million, $0.4 million, and $0.3 million, respectively, in accordance with the Plan. The amounts distributed to each Member of the Fund were calculated based upon the percentage ownership interest of such Member in the Fund. 


Redemption Limitation


In accordance with the Plan, our members no longer have the right to have their units redeemed by us and we no longer honor any outstanding redemption requests effective as of July 2, 2009.
