NEW YORk | OCTOBER 7-8, 2008

Fuel prices are at an all-time high and demand for energy production is growing at record
rates. In the US alone, the demand for energy is expected to increase by 30 percent over
the next three decades. In order to meet the demand, the global energy infrastructure is
expected to require more than $20 trillion of capital investment over the next 25 years. For
the private equity community, this translates into lucrative opportunities and an abundant
source for stable sustainable returns.

For private equity to drive transformation in the energy industry and to capitalize on its
potential, it is critical that as a community we come together to share proven strategies and
insights into trends that will shape this rapidly evolving market. In its 2nd year, the Private
Equity International Energy Forum will bring together general partners, institutional
investors and energy industry senior executives to explore the unfolding opportunities, the
increasing risks and the trends that will play a pivotal role in the ability to create and protect
value in this sector.

                                                                                 Attendees at Private
