The fourth amendment alters the maximum leverage ratio, calculated as of the end of the most recent month, on a trailing twelve month basis, to 6.75 to 1.00.

A liquidity event is defined in the fourth amendment as the issuance of any equity by the Partnership on or after the fourth amendment effective date or the disposition of any assets by the Partnership.
