This announcement may contain forward-looking statements based on our beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to us. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” and similar references to future periods, or by the inclusion of forecasts or projections. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make regarding the outlook for our future business and financial performance, estimated operational metrics, business strategy, and plans and objectives of management for future operations, including, among other things, statements regarding the expected benefits to be derived from the acquisition of Angelo Gordon.
Forward-looking statements are based on TPG’s current expectations and assumptions regarding its business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, by their nature, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks, and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. As a result, TPG’s actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the transaction; unexpected costs related to the integration of the Angelo Gordon business and operations; TPG’s ability to manage growth and execute its business plan; and regional, national or global political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory conditions, among various other risks. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements and risk factors discussed from time to time in TPG’s filings with the SEC, including, but not limited to, those described under the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 24, 2023 and subsequent filings with the SEC, which can be found at the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.
For the reasons described above, TPG cautions you against relying on any forward-looking statements, which should also be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included elsewhere in this announcement and related public filings. Any forward-looking statement made by TPG in this announcement speaks only as of the date on which TPG makes it. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for TPG to predict all of them. TPG undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement after the date of this press release, whether as a result of new information, future developments, or otherwise, except as may be required by law. No recipient should, therefore, rely on these forward-looking statements as representing the views of TPG or its management as of any date subsequent to the date of the press release.
This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.
 TPG Angelo Gordon’s currently stated AUM of approximately $74 billion as of June 30, 2023 reflects fund-level asset-related leverage. Prior to May 15, 2023, TPG Angelo Gordon calculated its AUM as net assets under management excluding leverage, which resulted in TPG Angelo Gordon AUM of approximately $53 billion last reported as of December 31, 2022. The difference reflects a change in TPG Angelo Gordon’s AUM calculation methodology and not any material change to TPG Angelo Gordon’s investment advisory business.
