IAM experienced AUM growth of 7% adding approximately $191.3 million of new assets since June 30, 2005. AUM were comprised of $2.2 billion at the Asset Management operations and $0.8 billion at the Hedge Funds operations at June 30, 2006.

Total revenues in the three months ended June 30, 2006 were $7.0 million compared to $18.4 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2005. This is a result of decreased performance fees realized during the current quarter. However, there was 27% growth in the predictable revenues of management fees, administration and redemption fees.

Operating income was $0.7 million compared to the prior year's quarter operating income of $8.1 million. Net income was $0.5 million in the current quarter versus net income of $3.7 million in the prior year's quarter.

IAM earns performance fees when investment returns outperform a designated benchmark. These benchmarks are contract specific and only apply to certain investment products. Performance fees of the Asset Management operations are realized sporadically as they tend to be recognized generally towards the end of the life of the pool of assets being managed, which at times can be up to twelve years. Performance fees at the Hedge Funds operations are generally recognized on an annual basis or semi-annual basis.

IAM was founded 8 years ago with 4 employees. Today we have 280 employees with approximately $3 billion in assets and committed capital under management.

Our strategy is to seek out the very best alternative asset managers. We both acquire and build teams of experienced, highly successful investment professionals. Our product line is broad, today encompassing private equity, private debt, real estate, managed futures and hedge funds. It will expand. Additional strategies and managers that might be added to the group are continually being evaluated.
