(Policy §IV.A.1.e.)

WIP, Park Hill and The Blackstone Group L.P. entered into a Placement Agreement dated
as of June 8, 2005; however, the terms of such Placement Agreement are confidential and
as such the Placement Agreement has not been included. The relevant fee terms and
description of services to be provided have been detailed below.

Provide a description of any and all compensation of any kind provided or agreed to be
provided to a Placement Agent, including the nature, timing and value thereof:
(Policy §IV.A.1.c.)

Overview of Fee:
As compensation for the services to be provided by Park Hill hereunder, WIP caused the
Fund to pay, directly or indirectly, a cash fee (the “Fee”) to Park Hill according to the
following formula:
    (i)    1% of the total Investor commitments if the aggregate principal amount of
           securities issued (measured by the commitment relating thereto) is $549 million
           or less.
    (ii)   1.25% of the total Investor commitments if the aggregate principal amount of
           securities issued (measured by the commitment relating thereto) is between
           $549.1 million and $599 million.
    (iii)  1.50% of the total Investor commitments if the aggregate principal amount of
           securities issued (measured by the commitment relating thereto) is between
           $599.1 million and $799 million.
    (iv)   1.75% of the total Investor commitments if the aggregate principal amount of
           securities issued (measured by the commitment relating thereto) is between
           $799.1 million and $899 million.


                                        Page 2 of 8
        (v)      2.0% of the total Investor commitments if the aggregate principal amount of
                 securities issued (measured by the commitment relating thereto) is over $899.1
                 million.

Under the terms of the Fund documents, the fees paid to Park Hill were offset against
management fees payable by the Fund to WIP in its capacity as the manager of the Fund.
After giving effect to the total commitments to the Fund, Park Hill received a fee equal to
one and seventy-seven percent (1.77%) of capital commitments made by CalPERS and
other investors like CalPERS.

Park Hill had no obligation to purchase any of the membership interests or to provide
financing of any kind to the Fund or WIP.

No Fee was payable to Park Hill with respect to any securities purchased by WIP or its
affiliates for its or their own accounts.

The Fund bore the respective legal, accounting, printing and other expenses in connection
with the offering of the membership interests of the Fund. Park Hill was not responsible for
any fees or commissions payable to financial or other advisors, other than the sub-agents
retained by Park Hill. If an Investor failed to (i) honor and pay in full its initial capital call or
(ii) honor and pay in full any subsequent capital call of the Fund, then WIP and the Fund
were relieved of any obligation to pay Park Hill or be reimbursed by Park Hill for a pro rata
portion of the Fee plus any accrued interest thereon with respect to such Investor.

Overview of Expenses:
Park Hill did not require a retainer to commence the assignment. For any reasonable
expenses that were payable to Park Hill under this agreement, WIP agreed to reimburse
Park Hill, within 31 days of Park Hill's monthly submittal for its out-of-pocket expenses
incurred in connection with the services rendered by Park Hill under the agreement,
including without limitation travel and lodging, data, word processing, graphics and
communication charges, research costs, courier services, and also including fees and
expenses of any legal counsel retained by Blackstone and/or Park Hill Group in an amount
for such legal fees and expenses not to exceed $5,000.

Describe the services to be performed by the Placement Agent, including whether the
Placement Agent is utilized by you for all prospective clients or only a subset of your
prospective clients. (Policy §IV.A.1.d.)


The Placement Agent was required to use reasonable best efforts to render customary
placement agent services, including but not limited to assisting WIP as follows:

(i)           input and advice as to the revision of descriptive offering materials;
(ii)          identification of prospective global investors in the Fund;
(iii)         consultation as to strategy and tactics for initiating discussions and negotiations with
              prospective investors as well as to general market conditions;
(iv)          arranging presentation meetings between prospective investors who have received
              offering materials and representatives of the Company;
(v)           monitoring and forwarding to the Company any requests for additional information
              by prospective investors and assisting with the fulfillment of due diligence requests;
(vi)          such other services in connection with the sale of Securities as may be agreed upon
              from time to time by Park Hill and the Company; and,
                                                Page 3 of 8
