The information set forth above provides preliminary estimates and are subject
to quarterly review procedures and final reconciliations and adjustments. Actual
fund valuations may differ from the estimates reflected in the information set
forth above, and such differences may be material. We undertake no obligation to
publicly update or review previously reported preliminary performance metrics
for our carry funds. While appreciation/(depreciation) in our carry funds is one
of the many drivers of performance fees, there are several other factors that
impact this type of revenue and these figures should not be construed as an
indication of performance fees, or of any other component of our revenues or
expenses, for any period. The preliminary carry fund performance metrics
reflected in this release are not indicative of the performance of The Carlyle
Group L.P. and are also not necessarily indicative of the future performance of
any particular fund. An investment in The Carlyle Group L.P. is not an
investment in any of our funds. 

This release does not constitute an offer for any Carlyle fund.
