Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Purchaser also waived certain closing conditions under the Purchase Agreement (as defined below) as follows:

(A) the conditions as to absence of changes and litigation with respect to the matters in a notice provided by the Hatteras Sellers to Purchaser; and

(B) the condition that the Hatteras Sellers shall have duly complied in all material respects with their covenants and agreements with respect to:

(i) the prohibition restricting any Hatteras Seller from entering into certain arrangements or amending certain existing arrangements in a manner that would increase or accelerate the vesting of any compensation payable to any of their respective present or former directors, officers, members, employees or agents, or adopting, terminating or otherwise amending any collective bargaining agreement or certain Employee Plans (as defined in the Purchase Agreement);

(ii) the requirement that the Hatteras Sellers furnish to Purchaser on a monthly basis between signing and closing certain financial and operating reports and certain reports required to be filed with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority; and

(iii) the condition that certain Business Contracts (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) be in full force and effect at closing.

The Hatteras Funds Group's principal business is acting as sponsor of, investment adviser to and distributor for the Hatteras Funds complex, a family of alternative investment funds registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the aggregate initial purchase price paid by the Purchaser will be $40.0 million (subject to certain adjustments for net working capital, net assets under management and consolidated pre-tax net income) payable as follows: (A) seventy-five percent (75.0%) was paid on the closing date of the Hatteras Purchase; (B) seven and one-half percent (7.5%) will be payable on the first anniversary of the closing date of the Hatteras Purchase; (C) seven and one-half percent (7.5%) will be payable on the second anniversary of the closing date of the Hatteras Purchase; and (D) ten percent (10.0%) will be payable on the third anniversary of the closing date of the Hatteras Purchase. Additionally, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser will pay the Hatteras Sellers additional consideration calculated and payable based on the consolidated pre-tax net operating income generated by the businesses of the Hatteras Funds Group in the fiscal years ending December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2018.

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which was filed as an exhibit to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 filed by the Company on November 12, 2013 and is incorporated herein by reference.
