EAM Partners L.P.

EAM Partners L.P. (EAM) of Dallas, Texas announced today certain changes to the index methodology for the Trader Vic Index® (TVI®). Effective as of the market close of each index component on January 31, 2014, the futures-based index will reflect (i) the addition of a multi-day roll process in order to allow certain commodity index components (rather than financial index components) to “roll” over more than one business day, (ii) the reduction in the base weights of four commodity index components considered to be the least liquid (live cattle, lean hogs and cocoa) by an aggregate of 1.5%, reallocating such weights to the other commodity index components, and (iii) a revised roll schedule for gold, high grade copper and soybeans index components. Further details of these changes can be found in the detailed index rules description paper available from EAM upon request.

No assurances can be made the EAM’s indexes or other products will achieve their objectives or that losses will be avoided. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Investors cannot invest directly in an index or other product developed by EAM. Investment products utilizing EAM’s products are speculative and involve a substantial degree of risk. One of the risks associated with the products is the complexity of the different factors which contribute to their results, as well as their correlation or non-correlation to other asset classes. The products could decline in a wide range of different market scenarios, including ones in which other financial products rise substantially. The products should be considered long-term investments; over the short-term there is a much greater possibility that the products may decline substantially, causing significant losses. Any factors which contribute to "trading ranges" (in which there is a lack of sustained, directional price movements in many markets) or “whipsaw” markets (in which price movements reverse suddenly or repeatedly) are likely to be adverse to the trend-following methodology of the products.
