An investor should consider the NB Crossroads Private Markets Access Fund LLC’s (the “Fund”) investment objectives, risks and fees and expenses carefully before investing. This and other important information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus, which an investor can obtain by calling 617-619-4690 or by emailing PEBostonIR@nb.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before making an investment.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON INVESTOR ELIGIBILITY: Please note that the Fund will sell its limited liability company interests (“shares”) only to eligible investors that are both “accredited investors,” as defined in Section 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and “qualified clients” as defined in Rule 205-3 under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended. In addition, shares are generally being offered only to investors that are U.S. persons for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The qualifications required to invest in the Fund will appear in subscription documents that must be completed by each prospective investor.
An investment in the Fund involves a high degree of risk and therefore should only be undertaken by qualified investors whose financial resources are sufficient to enable them to assume these risks and to bear the loss of all or part of their investment. The Fund is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, as a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company. The Fund and Neuberger Berman do not guarantee any level of return or risk on investments and there can be no assurance that the Fund’s investment objective will be achieved.
The Fund is a newly organized fund with no operating history. The Fund’s investment program is speculative and entails substantial risks. Investors should consult with their own financial, legal, investment and tax advisors prior to investing in the Fund. There is no assurance that the investments held by the Fund will be profitable, that there will be proceeds from such investments available for distribution to investors, or that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. There can be no assurance that projected or targeted returns for the Fund will be achieved.
An investment in the Fund should be considered illiquid. An investment in the Fund is not suitable for investors who need access to the money they invest. Although the Fund may offer to repurchase a limited amount of the Fund’s shares from time to time via quarterly repurchase offers, the Fund’s shares will not be redeemable at an investor’s option nor will they be exchangeable for shares of any other fund. As a result, an investor may not be able to sell or otherwise liquidate his or her shares. There can be no assurance that the Fund will conduct repurchase offers in any particular period and investors may be unable to tender their shares for repurchase for an indefinite period of time.
There will be a substantial period of time between the date as of which investors must submit a request to have their shares repurchased and the date they can expect to receive payment for their shares from the Fund. The Board of the Fund may under certain circumstances elect to postpone, suspend or terminate an offer to repurchase shares.
The Fund’s shares are not listed, and are not expected to be listed, for trading on any securities exchange, and the Fund does not expect any secondary market to develop for its shares in the foreseeable future. The Fund’s shares are subject to substantial restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under the Fund’s limited liability company agreement.
A substantial portion of the Fund’s assets are expected to consist of direct investments in private companies as well as investments in private equity portfolio funds that primarily invest in securities of private companies. Investments in private companies involve a high degree of business and financial risk that can result in substantial losses. Operating results for private companies in a specified period will be difficult to predict.
The Fund’s private equity investments will be illiquid and typically cannot be transferred or redeemed for a substantial period of time. The Fund’s private equity investments in most cases will be highly illiquid and difficult to value. Unless and until those investments are sold or mature into marketable securities, they will remain illiquid.
The Fund intends to elect for treatment, and to qualify each year to be treated, as a regulated investment company or a “RIC.” As such, the Fund must satisfy, among other requirements, certain ongoing asset diversification, source-of-income and annual distribution requirements. If the Fund fails to qualify as a RIC it will become subject to corporate-level income tax, and the resulting corporate taxes could substantially reduce the Fund’s net assets, the amount of income available for distributions to investors, the amount of distributions and the amount of funds available for new investments.
