Billing Policies

R.W. Mann & Company recognizes that clients look for value and efficiency from their advisors,
and we are responsive to that demand.  While our normal billing arrangement is based on hourly
fees for advisory services, with invoices prepared monthly, we are prepared to explore other fee
arrangements that may be more suitable to a particular clientís needs.

Hourly Fee Arrangements

Under Mann & Company's standard hourly fee arrangement, the fees for our professional services
are based upon the firmís hourly rates for those advisors and other firm personnel who will perform
services on your behalf. When feasible and efficient, services may be performed by affiliated firms
or other staff members operating under the supervision of the engagement leader.

In addition to our fees, we expect to be paid for disbursements and other charges incurred on a
client's behalf. Such items may include data acquisition fees, telecommunications charges, online
research, report preparation, messenger and delivery services, travel (airfare, lodging, meals and
ground transportation, including mileage), and if appropriate, business meals and conferences.

Alternative Fee Arrangements

In todayís competitive and economic environment, situations requiring advisory services may not
justify traditional fee arrangements.  We will work with clients to develop alternative financial arrangements
to meet their individual needs. Mann & Company has developed a number of innovative strategies for
clients, including fixed retainers, task billing, success fees and others.

Your Bill

We encourage client questions on all matters, and we welcome and encourage your feedback.
If you have specific billing requirements, policies and procedures, we will work with you to
accommodate your needs. Our billing function is flexible and enables us to meet individual billing
objectives as well as provide you will a clear and timely record of the services undertaken and
costs incurred on your behalf.
