The Alpha Fund Analysts
Structural Separation Procedure
The Alpha Group and Ragnar Crossover Fund adopted a structural separation procedure (“Chinese walls”) between the marketable investments made by Alpha and Ragnar and the non-marketable investments made by Ragnar. The purpose of the procedure is to create Chinese walls between the various activities and to prevent leakage of inside information.
According to the provisions of the Procedure, Ragnar's non-marketable investment activities will be carried out by Ragnar employees who work on private investments only. Alpha will not employ such workers in the publicly traded securities activity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of the Procedure shall not limit Ragnar from receiving analysis services from Alpha analysts, as long as during the period of their work on the analysis, the analysts will not be allowed to trade in securities or make any other use of inside information concerning the securities of any publicly traded company related to the company on which the analysis was performed.
In addition, employees who work on investments in public companies will not be exposed to and will not have access to any non-public information about corporations and companies related to the corporations in which Ragnar seeks to invest. Similarly, non-marketable investment employees will not participate in discussions on activities involving marketable securities.
The procedure also sets out provisions for managing and updating a watch list that includes reporting corporations for which inside information is available.
The Supervisor of the Procedure shall regularly monitor the Chinese walls, and report to Alpha's and Ragnar's boards. To the extent that the Supervisor determines that a suspected deviation has occurred, any operations relating to such suspected deviation will be immediately ceased until the end of the inquiry and after receiving the opinion of Alpha's and Ragnar's external legal counsel.
