    – including our interest in Key Lime Cove, LLC - and we divested our interest in the Potawatomi Design Group architectural company and
    HowlFire marketing firm. Additionally, we suspended operations of the Potawatomi Community Development Corporation in order to focus
    our resources on for-profit investment opportunities. Again, these were difficult decisions, but prudent given the economic landscape.

     Keeping our deal funnel full is essential to the mission and role of PBDC. Without a steady diet of potential acquisitions,
     partnerships, and ventures, an Indian Country holding company has to settle for whoever shows up.

     PBDC will look at more than one hundred investment opportunities annually. These are classified in three categories; unsolicited,
     solicited, and referred.

               • Unsolicited	 Deals that come off the streets. These deals have a low probability of meeting our strategic vision
               and may involve proponents looking for an easy mark in Indian Country. Consequently, we consider these through an
               internal protocol that measures them quickly against a high threshold before researching the project further.

               • Solicited	 Deals that PBDC seeks strategically to meet a specific investment or business development need. These
               deals start with a strategic fit and typically require a presentation and due diligence before investment.

               • Referred	 PBDC has many deal-flow resources through private equity groups, funds, and consultants that provide
               qualified opportunities. These groups understand our business strategy and will only send us deals that meet our
               investment criteria. These opportunities benefit from our eyes being the second set on the opportunity, but they still
               pass through a presentation and due diligence review.

     Our aim is to keep the solicited and referred pipelines full so we are not at the mercy of unsolicited proposals.
