By executing the signature page of this Subscription Agreement and Power of Attorney (the “Agreement”), you (for yourself and any co-subscriber, and, if you are signing on behalf of an entity, on behalf of and with respect to that entity and its shareholders, partners, beneficiaries or members), represent and warrant to Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, Ceres Managed Futures LLC (the “General Partner”) and AAA Capital Energy Fund L.P. II (the “Partnership”), as follows (as used below, the terms “you” and “your” refer to you and your co-subscriber, if any, or if you are signing on behalf of an entity, such entity). You understand that Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, the General Partner, and the Partnership will rely upon all of your statements and representations in this Agreement in deciding whether to allow you to invest in the Partnership.

(1) You have received and carefully read, understand and agree to abide by the terms of investment as described in the Private Placement Memorandum and Disclosure Document dated July 1, 2012 (the “Memorandum”) and the limited partnership agreement (the “Limited Partnership Agreement”) including any supplements and exhibits thereto, relating to and describing the terms and conditions of the private placement of units of limited partnership interest (the “Units”). You hereby acknowledge that no person is authorized to give any information or to make any statement not contained in the Memorandum or the Limited Partnership Agreement, and that any information or statement not contained in the Memorandum or the Limited Partnership Agreement must not be relied upon as having been authorized by the Partnership. You represent that an investment in the Partnership in the amount subscribed, despite its substantial risk, is suitable and appropriate for you given your investment objectives, risk tolerance, other holdings, and financial situation and needs, and you understand that an investment in the Partnership is speculative and may result in the complete loss of your investment. You have carefully reviewed and understand the various risks of an investment in the Partnership, including those summarized under “Risk Factors” and “Conflicts of Interest” in the Memorandum.

(2) You understand that the General Partner intends to restrict investment in the Partnership to purchasers who are “accredited investors” as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). You hereby represent that you are an “accredited investor” because you satisfy one or more of the following categories of “accredited investor:”

(3) You are acquiring the Units for your own account, as principal, for investment and not with a view to the resale or distribution of all or any part of such Units.

(4) Units were not offered to you by means of any general solicitation or general advertising by the General Partner or any person acting on its behalf, including without limitation (a) any advertisement, article, notice, or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine, or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, or (b) any seminar or meeting to which you were invited by any general solicitation or general advertising.

(5) (i) You have a net worth alone or with your spouse exceeding ten (10) times your investment; (ii) you have either the capacity to protect your interests in connection with this transaction; or (iii) you are able to bear the economic risk of the investment.

B-3


(10) If you are subscribing in a representative capacity, you have full power and authority to make this investment and enter into and be bound by this Agreement on behalf of the entity for which you are purchasing the Units, and that entity has full right and power to purchase the Units and enter into and be bound by this Agreement and become a limited partner pursuant to the Limited Partnership Agreement, and has been duly organized and is validly existing and is in good standing in the jurisdiction of its formation. In your representative capacity, you have determined that an investment by either the represented beneficiary or beneficial owner in the Partnership (i) is consistent with the investment objectives, (ii) is in the best interests of, and (iii) is within the risk tolerance of such investor’s investment in the Partnership. You have also satisfied any additional due diligence obligation you may have to your beneficiaries or beneficial owners.

(11) If you are subscribing for a joint or community property account, you have full power and authority to purchase Units and enter into and be bound by this Agreement on behalf of the joint or community property account.

(12) You either: (a) are not required to be registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) or to be a member of the National Futures Association (“NFA”); or (b) if so required, you are duly registered with the CFTC and are a member in good standing of the NFA. It is an NFA requirement that the General Partner attempt to verify that any person or entity that seeks to purchase Units be duly registered with the CFTC and a member of the NFA, if required. You agree to supply the General Partner with such information as the General Partner may reasonably request in order to attempt such verification. Certain entities that invest in the Partnership may, as a result, themselves become “commodity pools” within the intent of applicable CFTC and NFA rules, and their sponsors, accordingly, may be required to register as “commodity pool operators.”

(13) You have carefully reviewed and understand the fees and expenses that are directly and indirectly assessed on the Partnership.

(14) You understand that the General Partner is an affiliate of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., which will serve as a selling agent and commodity broker for the Partnership and may, along with its affiliates, serve as an FX counterparty for the Partnership, and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, which will also serve as the selling agent for the Partnership. You further understand that the Partnership is subject to conflicts of interest as discussed in the “Conflicts of Interest” section in the Memorandum. You also understand that Citigroup Global Markets Inc. credits up to 83.33% of the brokerage fees to financial advisors who sell Units in the Partnership and the prospect of receiving these fees may provide the General Partner (including its affiliates), the Selling Agent and your Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC financial advisor or private wealth advisor with interests that potentially conflict with your own in respect of your investment in the Partnership. You consent to such conflicts and you covenant not to object to or bring any proceedings against any of the foregoing relating to any such conflicts of interest, provided that Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and the relevant Morgan Stanley (including Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC) parties comply with the appropriate standard of liability as set forth in the Limited Partnership Agreement or any other relevant controlling agreement.

(15) You understand that the Units are illiquid and have not been registered under the Securities Act, or any similar state law, and cannot be transferred, sold, pledged or assigned except in certain limited circumstances, and with the consent of the General Partner, as set forth in the Limited Partnership Agreement. You understand that the Partnership has no intention or obligation to register the Units under the Securities Act.

(16) You have such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that you are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Partnership and are able to make an informed investment decision. You are not relying on the General Partner, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, or any of their affiliates with respect to any legal, tax, or economic considerations relating to your investment decision, and you further understand that the only disclosures for which the Partnership, the General Partner, Citigroup Global Markets, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, or any affiliates, as applicable, accepts any responsibility relating to your investment are those set forth in the Memorandum and the Limited Partnership Agreement.

You also agree that you will indemnify and hold harmless the Partnership, the General Partner, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, and their Affiliated Persons, or any one of them, for any Losses they may incur in connection with your failure to comply with any applicable law, rule or regulation (including anti-money laundering laws and regulations) having application to the Partnership, the General Partner, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, or their Affiliated Persons.

Additional Representations and Warranties for Employee Benefit Plan and IRA Investors:

(26) If you are a “Benefit Plan Investor” (within the meaning of Section 3(42) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”)), you are a fiduciary (within the meaning of ERISA) with respect to the subscriber and you are responsible for purchasing the Units, and such purchase is in accordance with ERISA requirements and will not constitute a prohibited transaction under ERISA or the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).

You understand that the General Partner in its sole discretion may limit investments in the Partnership so that less than 25% of the Units of the Partnership are owned by Benefit Plan Investors, and the General Partner may require a Benefit Plan Investor to redeem its interest in the Partnership if such 25% limit would be exceeded.

(27) If you are a Benefit Plan Investor, you also represent that either (a) or (b) as follows is true:

(a) neither the General Partner nor any of its affiliates (i) manages any part of your investment portfolio on a discretionary basis, (ii) regularly gives investment advice for a fee with respect to your assets, or (iii) has an agreement or understanding, written or unwritten, with you under which you receive information, recommendations or advice concerning investments that are used as a primary basis for your decisions, or under which you receive individualized investment advice concerning your assets; or

(b) you are independent of the General Partner, have studied the Memorandum and have made an independent decision to make the investment solely on the basis of such Memorandum and without reliance on any other information or statements as to the appropriateness of the investment, and neither the General Partner nor its employees or affiliates: (i) has exercised any investment discretion or control with respect to your investment; (ii) has authority, responsibility to give, or has given individualized investment advice with respect to your investment; or (iii) is the employer maintaining or contributing to you.

(28) If you are a Benefit Plan Investor, you also represent that both (a) and (b) as follows are true:

(a) the plan’s investment in the Partnership does not violate and is not otherwise inconsistent with the terms of any legal document constituting the plan or any trust agreement thereunder; and

(b) the subscriber will, at the request of the Partnership, furnish the Partnership with such information as the Partnership may reasonably require to establish that the purchase of the Units by the plan does not violate any provision of ERISA or the Code, including without limitation, those provisions relating to “prohibited transactions” by “parties in interest” or “disqualified persons” as defined therein.

(29) If you are a benefit plan or retirement account that is not a “Benefit Plan Investor” as defined in number (26) above, such as a governmental plan, a non-U.S. benefit plan, or a church plan that is not subject to ERISA, this investment is in accordance with legal requirements applicable to you.

B-8


Survival; Legal Effect.

(i) You agree that the representations, warranties, agreements, and covenants set forth in this Agreement shall, in pertinent part, survive the acceptance (or rejection) of this Agreement, and any subsequent withdrawal from the Partnership by you.

(ii) This Agreement shall be binding upon you to the extent set forth herein prior to acceptance of you as a limited partner and, if accepted, on you and the General Partner, its affiliates, and shall inure to the benefit of you, the General Partner, its affiliates and the Partnership.

Severability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such provision shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary so that such provision, as so modified, shall no longer be held to be invalid or unenforceable. Any such modification, invalidity, or unenforceability shall be strictly limited both to such provision and to such jurisdiction, and in each case to no other. Furthermore, in the event of any such modification, invalidity, or unenforceability, this Agreement shall be interpreted so as to achieve the intent expressed herein to the greatest extent possible in the jurisdiction in question and otherwise as set forth herein.

Counterparts; Facsimiles and Electronic Copies.

(i) The execution page may be executed in one or more counterparts, together shall constitute the same document. It is the General Partner’s policy to require submission of manually executed copies of this Agreement. In rare occasions, and in the sole discretion of the General Partner, the General Partner may from time-to-time permit facsimiles and/or electronic copies to have the same binding force as originals.

(ii) You agree that the General Partner is authorized to accept and execute the execution page, as well as any instructions given by you, in original signed form or by facsimile or electronic copy. If instructions are given by facsimile or electronic copy, you shall promptly courier the original signed form to the General Partner and shall indemnify the Partnership, the General Partner and their affiliates for any losses and damages suffered by them as a result of acting on faxed or e-mailed instructions rather than instructions in original signed form. You further agree that the Partnership, the General Partner and their affiliates, are entitled to rely conclusively on, and shall incur no liability in respect of any action taken on the basis of, any notice, consent, request, instruction, or other instrument believed in good faith to be genuine or to be signed by properly authorized persons.

Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the Limited Partnership Agreement contain the entire agreement and understanding of the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any prior agreements and understandings of the parties relating to such subject matter.

No Waiver.

(i) No failure or delay on the part of the Partnership, the General Partner and their affiliates in exercising any right, power, or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right, power, or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power, or remedy. Failure on the part of the Partnership, the General Partner and their affiliates to challenge any act by you or to declare you in default with respect to the Partnership, the General Partner and their affiliates, irrespective of how long that failure continues, shall not constitute a waiver by the Partnership, the General Partner and their affiliates of their rights with respect to that default until the applicable statute of limitations period has run.

(ii) Any waiver granted by the General Partner with respect to any term of this Agreement hereunder must be in writing, signed by an authorized representative of the General Partner, and shall be valid only in the specific instance in which given.

Confidentiality.
