Past performance is not indicative of future results. Return information is unaudited and subject to change. All returns shown assume reinvestment of distributions and are net of all expenses.

1 As of August 31, 2023. Inception to date (“ITD”) returns are annualized consistent with the IPA Practice Guideline 2018.

2 As of September 1, 2023. There is no assurance GREC will pay distributions in any particular amount, if at all. Any distributions will be at the discretion of the board of directors. GREC may fund distributions entirely from sources other than cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, or offering proceeds. In no event, however, shall funds be advanced or borrowed for the purpose of distributions if the amount of such distributions would exceed the accrued and received revenues for the previous four quarters, less paid and accrued operating costs with respect to such revenues, and costs shall be made in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied. For the quarter ending June 30, 2023, 100% of distributions were funded from a return of principal, cash on hand and other financing sources. By funding distributions with a return of principal to investors, GREC will have less money to invest, which may lower its overall return. For a historical breakdown of the distribution funding sources, please see GREC’s SEC filings.

3 Monthly share value as of September 1, 2023. Monthly Share Value (MSV) based calculations involve significant professional judgment. The calculated value of our assets and liabilities may differ from our actual realizable value or future value, which would affect the MSV as well as any returns derived from MSV, and ultimately the value of your investment. See the Private Placement Memorandum (“PPM”) for additional details related to the calculation of MSV.

4 Returns shown reflect the percentage change in the MSV per share from the beginning of the applicable period, plus the amount of any distribution per share declared in the period. All returns are unaudited, assume the reinvestment of distributions, and are net of all expenses including G&A expenses, management fees, performance participation fees, and share class specific fees, as applicable.
