ICG’s Relationship with Partner Companies
Although we refer to the companies in which we have an equity ownership interest or a convertible debt interest as our “partner companies” and indicate that we have a “partnership” with each of these companies, we do not act as an agent or legal authority to generally bind any of our partner companies, and we do not have the types of liabilities in relation to our partner companies that a general partner of a partnership would have.
