Terms and Privacy
The terms and conditions of use set forth herein apply to each of the pages of this website (collectively, the “Site”). Please read these terms and conditions of use carefully before using this Site.
By clicking on the “I Agree” button or using the Site, you signify your agreement with the following terms and conditions of use without limitation or qualification. Contrarian Capital Management, L.L.C., its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively referred to herein as “Contrarian”) may at any time revise these conditions by updating this posting.

Not an offer of advisory services or securities
The Site is limited to the dissemination of general information about the services provided by Contrarian. The Site and the information contained herein do not constitute and should not be used or considered as an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to buy an interest in any investment fund managed by Contrarian or for the provision of any investment management or advisory services in any jurisdiction. Any such offer or solicitation will be made only by means of the Confidential Private Offering Memorandum relating to the particular fund. Any such advisory services will be provided through an investment management agreement. The contents of this Site do not constitute legal, tax or accounting advice or advice regarding the suitability or profitability of any transaction or investment. Access to information about any fund managed by Contrarian is limited to investors who, among other requirements, qualify as accredited investors within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and qualified purchasers within the meaning of the Investment Company Act, as amended and who are sophisticated in financial matters, such that they are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of prospective investments.
Unless otherwise specified, the materials in or accessible through the Site are directed at residents of the United States, its territories, possessions, and protectorates. The Site is controlled and operated by Contrarian from its offices within the State of Connecticut, United States of America. Contrarian makes no representation that material in or accessible through the Site is appropriate or available for use in other locations or that access to them where their content is located is not illegal and prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for establishing the legality, usability and correctness of any information or materials under any or all jurisdictions and the compliance of that information or material with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You may not use or export the information or materials in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. The information provided in or accessible through the Site is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Contrarian to any registration or other requirement within such jurisdiction or country.
Contrarian makes no representation, and it should not be assumed, that past investment performance is an indication of future results. Moreover, wherever there is the potential for profit there is also the possibility of loss. Certain of Contrarian’s strategies involve investments that are illiquid, are subject to a substantial risk of loss and are not suitable for many investors.
