As we have always disclosed, The Rama Fund,
LLC (the “Fund”) has the right to a first look at
all of Athas Capital Group, Inc.’s (“Athas”)

parameters or if the Fund is fully invested, then we will offer
the investment opportunity to our network of private investors
as part of our Separately Managed Account (“SMA”)
program. Below we outline a deal we recently funded as an example
of our “fix and flip” bridge loan program.
