Clearwater Capital Partners, LLC (“Clearwater” or the “Firm”) is an investment firm founded in December 2001 to invest in special
situations and distressed or otherwise undervalued assets and securities located in Asia, excluding Japan (the “Asia Region”).
The three founding partners, Robert Petty, Amit Gupta and Bruno Beuque (the “Principals”), each have expertise in one of the
three primary disciplines required for success in executing Clearwater’s investment strategy. Robert Petty’s primary expertise is
in portfolio management, sourcing and trading. Amit Gupta’s primary expertise is in credit analysis and underwriting. Bruno
Beuque’s primary expertise is in restructuring and asset management. The Principals as a group have more than 50 years of
combined Asia credit and special situations investment experience and have invested in 80 restructurings with total liabilities in
excess of $65 billion. Clearwater’s investment strategy is to leverage its distinct advantages in due diligence and execution
capabilities across local currencies, languages and jurisdictions to build a diversified, cash generative and non-correlating
portfolio of special situations investments and distressed or otherwise undervalued assets and securities located in the Asia
Region. Clearwater’s investors include major endowments, foundations, family offices and large institutions.
