Relationship with Weston Presidio
Main Post’s investment team’s four partners (Sean Honey, Jeff Mills, Scott Bell, and Josh McDowell (collectively, the “Investment Partners”)) worked together at Weston Presidio Service Company, LLC (“Weston Presidio”) prior to starting Main Post. The Weston Presidio investments highlighted on the Website are those investments sourced and led by the Investment Partners, except that, with respect to Advisors Excel, RE/MAX and Micro Power, Scott Bell played a significant role on the initial investment team, led diligence efforts for the investment and served on the Board of Directors, but did not source the investment. Investments that were “sourced and led” by the Investment Partners means those investments of Weston Presidio in which at least one of the Investment Partners sourced the investment and led the Weston Presidio team responsible for such investment throughout Weston Presidio’s ownership of the investment. Investments in which the Investment Partners “played a significant role” means those investments of Weston Presidio in which at least one of the Investment Partners was on the Weston Presidio team responsible for such investment, led diligence efforts for the investment and serves or served on the Board of Directors, but did not source the investment for Weston Presidio.
Weston Presidio is a growth equity firm that typically invests in lower middle market growth companies in the consumer, business services and industrial growth sectors. Although Weston Presidio employs a team-based research process and all portfolio management decisions of Weston Presidio V, L.P. were made by an investment committee comprised of all of Weston Presidio’s partners (varying in number from approximately seven to eleven over the course of Weston Presidio V, L.P.), the Investment Partners sourced and led or played a significant role in certain investments. The Weston Presidio investments are presented to acquaint prospective investors with the experience of the Investment Partners and specifically the results that they helped achieve at Weston Presidio.
Main Post expects to continue the investment strategy that generated results at Weston Presidio although there can be no assurance that future investments will have the characteristics or successes of the investments shown on the Website.

None of the Investment Partners sourced or led investments in any Weston Presidio fund other than in Weston Presidio V, L.P., except that Mr. Honey sourced and led one investment in an earlier Weston Presidio fund, Flynn Restaurant Group, which is also in WP V. Any investor wishing to learn about the investment experience of any Investment Partner in prior Weston Presidio funds is encouraged to contact Main Post.
