  • The Website is not intended to be and does not constitute an offer to sell any securities or a solicitation of any offer to purchase any securities. Such an offer or solicitation may be made only by the confidential private placement memorandum or similar offering document of the applicable investment fund (the "Fund"). If you are considering whether to invest in the Fund you should rely not on the information available on this website, but instead on the information in the private placement memorandum or similar offering document, subject to the disclosures contained therein, which private placement memorandum or similar offerin documents may be requested from DLI. It should not be assumed that any investments discussed in any DLI Content will be profitable. DLI Content should not be considered investment advice or a recommendation of any particular account or strategy.  An investment in any Fund is only suitable for "Sophisticated Investors" as defined in the applicable private placement memorandum or similar offering documents. All views, opinions and estimates in any DLI Content may change at any time without notice to you.
  • Any DLI Content or other communication provided by DLI is intended to be generalized information about DLI.  DLI, its employees and other agents are prohibited from providing, and do not provide, personalized tax, investment, legal or other business and professional advice to any taxpayer (other than DLI), including without limitation to any individual potential or current investor in any Fund.  No DLI Content or other communication by DLI, its employees and other agents is intended or written to be used by any such taxpayer for the purpose of avoiding tax penalties.  All such taxpayers are strongly advised to seek advice from an independent tax advisor based on such taxpayer's particular circumstances.
  • Past performance is no indication of future results.

Those statements can be identified by the use of words including but not limited to "believe," "expect," "plan," "may," "will," "should," "anticipate" or similar statements or the negative of these words. Forward-looking statements include but are not limited to statements made as to future operations, costs, capital expenditures, cash flow, improvements in infrastructure, distribution and replenishment systems and operating efficiencies, sales and earnings estimates or trends and expansion plans and projections. These forward-looking statements are based on our expectations as of the date such forward-looking statements are made. Such forward-looking statements are not to be viewed as fact or as a guarantee of performance or achievement of any particular results, and are made subject to numerous assumptions, risks, uncertainties and other factors.   Known and unknown internal and external risks and uncertainties may cause the actual results to be materially different from those expressed in or implied by the forward-looking statements. DLI undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur after the date the statements were made.
