KKR, Vista, and Warburg Pincus calculates the amount of AUM as of any date as the sum of: (i) the fair value of the investments of KKR’s, Vista’s, and Warburg Pincus’ investment funds; (ii) uncalled capital commitments from these funds, including uncalled capital commitments from which KKR, Vista, and Warburg Pincus is currently not earning management fees or carried interest; (iii) the fair value of investments in KKR’s, Vista’s, and Warburg Pincus’ co-investment vehicles; (iv) the par value of outstanding CLOs (excluding CLOs wholly-owned by KKR); (v) KKR’s pro-rata portion of the AUM managed by strategic partnerships in which KKR holds a minority ownership interest and (vi) the fair value of other assets managed by KKR, Vista, and Warburg Pincus. The pro-rata portion of the AUM managed by strategic partnerships is calculated based on KKR’s, Vista’s, and Warburg Pincus’ percentage ownership interest in such entities multiplied by such entity’s respective AUM. KKR’s, Vista’s, and Warburg Pincus’ calculation of AUM may differ from the calculations of other asset managers and, as a result, KKR’s, Vista’s, and Warburg Pincus’ measurements of its AUM may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other asset managers. KKR’s, Vista’s, and Warburg Pincus’ definition of AUM is not based on the definitions of AUM that may be set forth in agreements governing the investment funds, vehicles or accounts that it manages and is not calculated pursuant to any regulatory definitions.
