If GCL subsequently agrees to quote a firm price, that firm price may differ from the most recent valuation provided to you which may be unfavourable to you. Valuations will be provided solely for your information and are not intended for the benefit of any other party. GCL specifically disclaims liability for any use you may make of any valuation. You should discuss with your external advisors the extent to which any valuation provided by GCL may be used to value your or any other person’s Investments. Providing valuations to you on one or more occasions does not create an obligation for GCL to continue to do so in the future.

Unlisted Investments will be valued at the most recent estimate, if, in the opinion of GCL it is reasonable to do so, otherwise, they may be excluded from the valuation.
