CASE STUDY – BERRO; as one example of our Fix & Flip Program

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”) production. If a deal does not fit within the Fund’s investment 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.

Executive Summary
Our borrower is an experienced “fix and flipper.” He has successfully renovated and monetized several properties and in each case he operates as if he were going to live in the subject property himself. His work is high grade and in this instance he purchased the subject property for $360,000 using 100% cash. He then invested $50,000 more of his personal savings into the property and before deciding to utilize a small amount of leverage to help bolster his working capital as his project neared completion.

Additionally, he earns $200,000 a year from his occupation.
