ICON ECI Fund Fifteen, L.P.
(A Delaware Limited Partnership)
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
June 30, 2018
(unaudited)


(1)   Organization

ICON ECI Fund Fifteen, L.P. (the “Partnership”) was formed on September 23, 2010 as a Delaware limited partnership. When used in these notes to consolidated financial statements, the terms “we,” “us,” “our” or similar terms refer to the Partnership and its consolidated subsidiaries.
 
We are a direct financing fund that primarily made investments in domestic and international companies, which investments were primarily structured as debt and debt-like financings (such as loans and leases) that are collateralized by business-essential equipment and corporate infrastructure (collectively, “Capital Assets”) utilized by such companies to operate their businesses, as well as other strategic investments in or collateralized by Capital Assets that ICON GP 15, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and our general partner (the “General Partner”), believes will provide us with a satisfactory, risk-adjusted rate of return.  Our General Partner makes investment decisions on our behalf and manages our business.

Our offering period commenced on June 6, 2011 and ended on June 6, 2013, at which time we entered our operating period. On April 24, 2017, we commenced a consent solicitation of our limited partners to amend and restate our limited partnership agreement in order to amend the definition of “operating period” to provide for the ability of our General Partner to shorten our operating period in its sole and absolute discretion. The consent solicitation was completed on May 24, 2017 with the requisite consents received from our limited partners.  As a result, our General Partner ended our operating period on May 31, 2017 and commenced our liquidation period on June 1, 2017. During our liquidation period, we have sold and will continue to sell our assets and/or let our investments mature in the ordinary course of business.

On May 30, 2017, ICON Capital, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and our investment manager (the “Investment Manager”), retained ABN AMRO Securities (USA) LLC (“ABN AMRO Securities”) as its financial advisor to assist our Investment Manager and us in identifying, evaluating and executing a potential sale of certain shipping and offshore energy assets currently included within our investment portfolio. As a result of such identification and evaluation, on July 23, 2018, we entered into a sale and purchase agreement to sell our interests in the joint venture related to Fugro (as defined and discussed in further detail in Note 4).
  
(2)    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
Our accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. In the opinion of our General Partner, all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These consolidated financial statements should be read together with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.  The results for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.

Credit Quality of Notes Receivable and Finance Leases and Credit Loss Reserve
Our Investment Manager monitors the ongoing credit quality of our financing receivables by (i) reviewing and analyzing a borrower’s financial performance on a regular basis, including review of financial statements received on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis as prescribed in the loan or lease agreement, (ii) tracking the relevant credit metrics of each financing receivable and a borrower’s compliance with financial and non-financial covenants, (iii) monitoring a borrower’s payment history and public credit rating, if available, and (iv) assessing our exposure based on the current investment mix. As part of the monitoring process, our Investment Manager may physically inspect the collateral or a borrower’s facility and meet with a borrower’s management to better understand such borrower’s financial performance and its future plans on an as-needed basis. 
 
As our financing receivables, generally notes receivable and finance leases, are limited in number, our Investment Manager is able to estimate the credit loss reserve based on a detailed analysis of each financing receivable as opposed to using portfolio-based metrics. Our Investment Manager does not use a system of assigning internal risk ratings to each of

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

(unaudited)


our financing receivables. Rather, each financing receivable is analyzed quarterly and categorized as either performing or non-performing based on certain factors including, but not limited to, financial results, satisfying scheduled payments and compliance with financial covenants. A financing receivable is usually categorized as non-performing only when a borrower experiences financial difficulties and has failed to make scheduled payments. Our Investment Manager then analyzes whether the financing receivable should be placed on a non-accrual status, a credit loss reserve should be established or the financing receivable should be restructured. As part of the assessment, updated collateral value is usually considered and such collateral value can be based on a third party industry expert appraisal or, depending on the type of collateral and accessibility to relevant published guides or market sales data, internally derived fair value. Material events would be specifically disclosed in the discussion of each financing receivable held. 
 
Financing receivables are generally placed on a non-accrual status when payments are more than 90 days past due. Additionally, our Investment Manager periodically reviews the creditworthiness of companies with payments outstanding less than 90 days and based upon our Investment Manager’s judgment, these accounts may be placed on a non-accrual status.
 
In accordance with the cost recovery method, payments received on non-accrual financing receivables are applied to principal if there is doubt regarding the ultimate collectability of principal. If collection of the principal of non-accrual financing receivables is not in doubt, interest income is recognized on a cash basis. Financing receivables on non-accrual status may not be restored to accrual status until all delinquent payments have been received, and we believe recovery of the remaining unpaid receivable is probable.
 
When our Investment Manager deems it is probable that we will not be able to collect all contractual principal and interest on a non-performing financing receivable, we perform an analysis to determine if a credit loss reserve is necessary. This analysis considers the estimated cash flows from the financing receivable, and/or the collateral value of the asset underlying the financing receivable when financing receivable repayment is collateral dependent. If it is determined that the impaired value of the non-performing financing receivable is less than the net carrying value, we will recognize a credit loss reserve or adjust the existing credit loss reserve with a corresponding charge to earnings. We then charge off a financing receivable in the period that it is deemed uncollectible by reducing the credit loss reserve and the balance of the financing receivable.
 
Investments - Equity Method and Cost Method

We account for our interests in entities in which we are able to exercise significant influence over operating and financial policies, generally 50% or less ownership interest, under the equity method of accounting. In such cases, our original investments are recorded at cost and adjusted for our share of earnings, losses and distributions. We account for our interests in entities where we have virtually no influence over operating and financial policies under the cost method of accounting. In such cases, our original investments are recorded at cost and any distributions received are recorded as revenue. All investments are subject to our impairment review policy.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASU 2014-09”), requiring revenue to be recognized in an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received in exchange for goods and services. We adopted ASU 2014-09 on January 1, 2018. Since substantially all of our revenue is recognized from our leasing and lending contracts, which are not subject to ASU 2014-09, the adoption of ASU 2014-09 did not have an effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities (“ASU 2016-01”), which provides guidance related to accounting for equity investments, financial liabilities under the fair value option, and the presentation and disclosure requirements for financial instruments. In addition, FASB clarified guidance related to the valuation allowance assessment when recognizing deferred tax assets resulting from unrealized losses on available-for-sale debt securities. We adopted ASU 2016-01 on January 1, 2018. As a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-01, we are no longer required to make certain disclosures related to the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate fair value for financial instruments measured at amortized cost.

In August 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (“ASU 2016-15”), which provides guidance on how certain cash receipts and cash payments are to be presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. We adopted ASU 2016-15 on January 1, 2018, which did not have an effect on our consolidated financial statements. We utilize the cumulative earnings approach under ASU 2016-15 to present distributions received from equity-method investees, which is consistent with our previous policy.

In November 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (“ASU 2016-18”), which provides guidance on the presentation of restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. As a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-18 on January 1, 2018, we commenced presenting restricted cash with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts presented on our consolidated statements of cash flows. We adopted ASU 2016-18 using the retrospective method. As a result, the effects of adopting ASU 2016-18 on our consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were as follows:

In January 2017, FASB issued ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (“ASU 2017-01”), which clarifies the definition of a business. ASU 2017-01 sets forth requirements to be met for a set to be deemed a business and establishes a practical way to determine when a set is not a business. To be considered a business, a set must include, at a minimum, an input and a substantive process that together significantly contribute to the ability to create an output, and removes the evaluation of whether a market participant could replace missing elements. In addition, ASU 2017-01 narrows the definition of outputs and aligns such definition with how outputs are described within the revenue guidance. We adopted ASU 2017-01 on January 1, 2018, which did not have an effect on our consolidated financial statements.

Other Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (“ASU 2016-02”), which requires lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms greater than twelve months on the balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. ASU 2016-02 implements changes to lessor accounting focused on conforming with certain changes made to lessee accounting and the recently released revenue recognition guidance. The adoption of ASU 2016-02 becomes effective for us on January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. Based on our preliminary assessment, all of our leases are subject to lessor accounting and the accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under current U.S. GAAP. In addition, since we are in our liquidation period and not expecting to enter into any new leases in the future and it is expected that we will apply the practical expedients as provided by the guidance, the adoption of ASU 2016-02 may not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements. We continue to evaluate the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-02 on our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (“ASU 2016-13”), which modifies the measurement of credit losses by eliminating the probable initial recognition threshold set forth in current guidance, and instead reflects an entity’s current estimate of all expected credit losses. The measurement of expected credit losses is based on relevant information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amount. An entity will apply the amendments within ASU 2016-13 through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 becomes effective for us on January 1, 2020, including interim periods

within that reporting period. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-13 on our consolidated financial statements.

(3)    Net Investment in Notes Receivable
As of June 30, 2018, we had no net investment in notes receivable on non-accrual status and no net investment in notes receivable that was past due 90 days or more and still accruing. As of December 31, 2017, we had net investment in notes receivable on non-accrual status of $1,950,000 and no net investment in notes receivable that was past due 90 days or more and still accruing. See below for further details regarding our note receivable related to four affiliates of Técnicas Marítimas Avanzadas, S.A. de C.V. (collectively, “TMA”).

(2) 
As of December 31, 2017, we had a credit loss reserve of $2,615,158 related to TMA, of which $1,064,668 was reserved against the accrued interest receivable included in other assets and $1,550,490 was reserved against net investment in notes receivable.
(3) 
As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, net investment in notes receivable related to our impaired loan was $2,631,667 and $1,950,000, respectively.

On July 14, 2014, we, ICON Leasing Fund Twelve Liquidating Trust (formerly, ICON Leasing Fund Twelve, LLC) (“Fund Twelve”) and ICON Equipment and Corporate Infrastructure Fund Fourteen, L.P. (“Fund Fourteen”), each an entity also managed by our Investment Manager (collectively, “ICON”), entered into a secured term loan credit facility agreement with TMA to provide a credit facility of up to $29,000,000 (the “ICON Loan”), of which our commitment of $3,625,000 was funded on August 27, 2014 (the “TMA Initial Closing Date”). The facility was used by TMA to acquire and refinance two platform supply vessels. At inception, the loan bore interest at the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), subject to a 1% floor, plus a margin of 17%. Upon the acceptance of both vessels by TMA’s sub-charterer on September 19, 2014, the margin was reduced to 13%. On November 24, 2014, ICON entered into an amended and restated senior secured term loan credit facility agreement with TMA pursuant to which an unaffiliated third party (the “Senior Lender”) agreed to provide a senior secured term loan in the amount of up to $89,000,000 (the “Senior Loan,” and collectively with the ICON Loan, the “TMA Facility”) to acquire two additional vessels. The TMA Facility had a term of five years from the TMA Initial Closing Date. As a result of the amendment, the margin for the ICON Loan increased to 15% and repayment of the ICON Loan became subordinated to the repayment of the Senior Loan. The TMA Facility is secured by, among other things, a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the collection of hire with respect to earnings from the sub-charterer related to the four vessels. As a condition to the amendment and increased size of the TMA Facility, TMA was required to cause all four platform supply vessels to be under contract by March 31, 2015. Due to TMA’s failure to meet such condition, TMA was in technical default and in payment default while available cash was swept by the Senior Lender and applied to the Senior Loan in accordance with the loan agreement. As a result, the principal balance of the Senior Loan amortized at a faster rate. In January 2016, the remaining two previously unchartered vessels had commenced employment. Our Investment Manager continued to assess the collectability of the note receivable at each reporting date as TMA's credit quality slowly deteriorated and the fair market value of the collateral continued to decrease. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, our Investment Manager believed it was prudent to place the note receivable on non-accrual status. In September 2017, our Investment Manager met with certain restructuring advisors engaged by TMA to discuss a potential restructuring of the company. In light of these developments and a decrease in the fair market value of the collateral, in which we had a second priority security interest, our Investment Manager determined to record a credit loss of $1,750,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2017.

On December 26, 2017, ICON, the Senior Lender and TMA entered into a restructuring support and lock-up agreement to commit to a restructuring of TMA’s outstanding debt obligations and to provide additional funding to TMA, subject to execution of definitive agreements. As a result of this restructuring (as further described below), our Investment Manager assessed the collectability of the note receivable as of December 31, 2017 and recorded an additional credit loss of $865,158 for the three months ended December 31, 2017. 

On January 5, 2018, ICON, the Senior Lender and TMA executed all definitive agreements including, without limitation, the second amended and restated term loan credit facility agreement in connection with the restructuring of the TMA Facility (the “Second Amendment”). Under the Second Amendment, ICON funded a total of $8,000,000 in exchange for (i) all amounts payable under the Senior Loan would amortize at a faster rate, at which time ICON would become the senior lender and have a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the earnings generated by the vessels; and (ii) a 12.5% equity interest in two affiliates of TMA. Also as part of the Second Amendment, ICON agreed to reduce its aggregate notes and interest receivables to $20,000,000 in connection with the overall restructuring plan. As a result of the Second Amendment, on January 5, 2018, we funded our additional commitment of $1,000,000, which represented our share of the total additional commitment to TMA, and our note and interest receivables due from TMA were reduced to $2,500,000. As of January 5, 2018, our share of the fair value of the 12.5% equity interest in two affiliates of TMA was estimated to be $450,000, which was based on an independent third-party valuation. Of our $1,000,000 additional commitment to TMA, we recorded $450,000 as an investment accounted for under the equity method of accounting (see Note 7) and the remaining $550,000 as an additional loan to TMA. As a result of this restructuring, during the three months ended March 31, 2018, we wrote off the allowance for credit loss of $2,615,158 related to TMA, of which $1,064,668 was previously reserved against the accrued interest receivable and $1,550,490 was previously reserved against our net investment in notes receivable. In addition, we also wrote off the corresponding $1,064,668 accrued interest receivable. In accordance with the Second Amendment, our restructured loan of $2,500,000 bears interest at a rate of 12% per year and is scheduled to mature on January 5, 2021. The amended TMA Facility is secured by substantially the same collateral that secured the TMA Facility prior to the restructuring.

On June 12, 2018, all of TMA’s obligations to the Senior Lender and all amounts payable under the Senior Loan were satisfied in full. As a result, ICON became the agent and senior lender and has a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the earnings generated by the vessels. Interest was accrued as paid-in-kind (“PIK”) interest until the Senior Loan was satisfied in full. Upon satisfaction of the Senior Loan, (i) $131,667 of PIK interest was reclassified to principal; and (ii) the ICON Loan is being amortized at 25% per year and together with interest, is payable quarterly in arrears. On July 5, 2018, we extended the due date of certain payments from TMA for an additional 15 days for a fee of $3,750. Such payments were timely received from TMA.

As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, our net investment in notes receivable related to TMA was $2,631,667 and $1,950,000, respectively. In addition, as of December 31, 2017, we had an accrued interest receivable related to TMA of $1,064,668, which had been fully reserved, resulting in a net carrying value of $0. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, we recognized finance income of $77,942 and $148,775, respectively, of which no amount was recognized on a cash basis. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, we recognized finance income of $0 and $111,279, respectively, of which no amount was recognized on a cash basis.

There was no allowance for credit loss at the beginning or at the end of the three months ended June 30, 2018. There were no related activities during the three months ended June 30, 2018

On December 23, 2015, a joint venture owned 75% by us, 15% by Fund Fourteen and 10% by ICON ECI Fund Sixteen (“Fund Sixteen”), an entity also managed by our Investment Manager, through two indirect subsidiaries, entered into memoranda of agreement to purchase two geotechnical drilling vessels, the Fugro Scout and the Fugro Voyager (collectively, the “Fugro Vessels”), from affiliates of Fugro N.V. (“Fugro”) for an aggregate purchase price of $130,000,000. The aggregate purchase price was funded by the indirect subsidiaries through (i) $16,500,000 in cash; (ii) $91,000,000 in financing through a senior secured loan from ABN AMRO Bank N.V. (“ABN AMRO”), Cooperatieve Centrale Raiffeisen-Boerenleenbank B.A. (“Rabobank”) and NIBC Bank N.V. (“NIBC”); and (iii) seller’s credits of $22,500,000. The Fugro Scout and the Fugro Voyager were delivered on December 24, 2015 and January 8, 2016, respectively. The Fugro Vessels were bareboat chartered to affiliates of Fugro for a period of 12 years upon the delivery of each respective vessel, although such charters can be

terminated by the indirect subsidiaries after year five. In anticipation of a potential breach of a financial covenant by Fugro on December 31, 2017, effective December 29, 2017, the indirect subsidiaries and the affiliates of Fugro amended the bareboat charters on April 6, 2018 to, among other things, amend certain financial covenants, increase the daily charter rate and provide for additional security deposits. As part of the amendment, the joint venture received a fee of $55,000.

On July 23, 2018, we, Fund Fourteen and Fund Sixteen entered into a sale and purchase agreement to sell 100% of the limited liability company interests of the joint venture related to Fugro to an unaffiliated third-party. The sale is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. We cannot provide any assurance if and when the sale transaction will be completed. Upon the closing of the sale transaction, it is anticipated that a loss on sale will be recorded based on the purchase price pursuant to the sale and purchase agreement.

(5)    Vessel

Upon termination of the bareboat and time charters with Gallatin Marine Management, LLC (“Gallatin”) and EMAS Chiyoda Subsea Limited (“EMAS”), respectively, we reclassified the AMC Ambassador (f/k/a the Lewek Ambassador) as vessel on our consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2017.

On June 27, 2018, we sold the AMC Ambassador to a third-party purchaser for $1,500,000. A portion of the sale proceeds was used to satisfy in full certain third-party claims against the vessel of $555,456, with the remaining portion used to settle our non-recourse debt obligations related to the vessel. As a result, we recognized a loss on sale of vessel of $2,045,055 and recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $4,764,270.

Depreciation expense was $77,472 and $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Depreciation expense was $154,945 and $0 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, pre-tax income associated with the vessel was $2,286,453 and $1,696,092, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, pre-tax loss associated with the vessel was $2,236,239 and $2,599,143, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, pre-tax income attributable to us associated with the vessel was $1,371,872 and $1,017,655, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, pre-tax loss attributable to us associated with the vessel was $1,341,744 and $1,559,486, respectively.

(6)    Investment in Joint Ventures

On March 21, 2014, a joint venture owned 12.5% by us, 75% by Fund Twelve and 12.5% by Fund Fourteen, through two indirect subsidiaries, entered into memoranda of agreement to purchase two LPG tanker vessels, the EPIC Bali and the EPIC Borneo (f/k/a the SIVA Coral and the SIVA Pearl, respectively) (collectively, the “EPIC Vessels”), from Foreguard Shipping I Global Ships Ltd. (f/k/a Siva Global Ships Limited) (“Foreguard Shipping”) for an aggregate purchase price of $41,600,000. The EPIC Bali and the EPIC Borneo were delivered on March 28, 2014 and April 8, 2014, respectively. The EPIC Vessels were bareboat chartered to an affiliate of Foreguard Shipping for a period of eight years upon the delivery of each respective vessel. The EPIC Vessels were each acquired for approximately $3,550,000 in cash, $12,400,000 of financing through a senior secured loan from DVB Group Merchant Bank (Asia) Ltd. (“DVB Asia”) and $4,750,000 of financing through a subordinated, non-interest-bearing seller’s credit. Our contribution to the joint venture was $1,022,225. On February 14, 2018, Foreguard Shipping purchased the EPIC Vessels from the indirect subsidiaries for an aggregate purchase price of $32,412,488. As a result, the bareboat charters were terminated. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the EPIC Vessels was used to satisfy in full the seller's credit to Foreguard Shipping and the related outstanding non-recourse long-term debt obligations to DVB Asia. As a result, the joint venture recorded a loss of $3,018,839, of which our share was $377,355. The loss was primarily due to (i) the seller’s credit, which was satisfied in full at its maturity amount of $9,500,000 rather than its then-present value of $7,355,183 prior to the sale, and (ii) the write-off of the remaining unamortized indirect costs.

On June 12, 2014, a joint venture owned 12.5% by us, 75% by Fund Twelve and 12.5% by Fund Fourteen purchased an offshore supply vessel from Pacific Crest Pte. Ltd. (“Pacific Crest”) for $40,000,000. Simultaneously, the vessel was bareboat chartered to Pacific Crest for ten years. The vessel was acquired for approximately $12,000,000 in cash, $26,000,000 of financing through a senior secured loan from DVB Asia and $2,000,000 of financing through a subordinated, non-interest-

bearing seller’s credit. Since July 2017, Pacific Crest failed to make its monthly charter payments and our Investment Manager was advised in July 2017 that Pacific Crest was engaged in discussions with its lenders regarding a potential restructuring of its outstanding debt obligations. As a result, the joint venture performed an impairment test on the vessel. For the year ended December 31, 2017, the joint venture recorded an aggregate impairment loss of $19,295,230 based on our impairment tests, of which we were only allocated $1,758,641 as our investment in the joint venture was written down to zero.
On April 20, 2018, the joint venture and DVB Asia entered into an agreement (the “DVB Asia Agreement”) under which the parties agreed to (i) cooperate to market and sell the offshore supply vessel, (ii) the application of any future payments that may be received by the joint venture from Pacific Crest and/or Pacific Radiance Ltd. (“Pacific Radiance”), the guarantor of Pacific Crest’s obligations under the bareboat charter related to the vessel, in settlement of all obligations and liabilities of Pacific Crest and Pacific Radiance under the bareboat charter and the guaranty, respectively, and (iii) the application of the sale proceeds from any future sale of the vessel.
On May 14, 2018, the joint venture entered into a settlement agreement with Pacific Crest, Pacific Radiance and DVB Asia under which, among other things, (i) the parties agreed to terminate the bareboat charter and the joint venture would release Pacific Crest and Pacific Radiance from all obligations and liabilities under the bareboat charter and the guaranty, respectively, in each case upon the joint venture’s receipt of a $1,000,000 payment from Pacific Crest, a portion of which will be used to make a partial repayment on the outstanding debt to DVB Asia; (ii) the parties agreed to cooperate to market and sell the offshore supply vessel; and (iii) Pacific Crest released the joint venture from its obligation to repay the seller's credit and Pacific Crest will continue to maintain the vessel in its current condition until the earlier of the sale of the vessel or December 15, 2018. On May 18, 2018, the joint venture received the $1,000,000 payment from Pacific Crest, of which (a) the joint venture is entitled to $566,667, of which our share is $70,833 and, (b) the remaining $433,333 will be applied toward the repayment of the joint venture’s outstanding non-recourse debt to DVB Asia in accordance with the DVB Asia Agreement.
On May 16, 2018, Pacific Radiance and its subsidiaries (including Pacific Crest) made applications to the Singapore High Court seeking interim protection against legal proceedings and other claims as they seek to restructure their outstanding debt obligations with stakeholders. On June 11, 2018, the Court granted such protection to Pacific Radiance and its subsidiaries (including Pacific Crest) until December 2018.
On June 4, 2018, the joint venture entered into an exclusivity agreement with a potential purchaser of the offshore supply vessel under which the joint venture agreed to exclusively negotiate with such potential purchaser for the sale of the vessel to permit the potential purchaser to bid on a bareboat charter that if accepted, would employ the offshore supply vessel. In exchange for exclusivity, the potential purchaser paid a $25,000 nonrefundable fee to the joint venture. The exclusivity agreement has since expired and the joint venture was informed by the potential purchaser that it would not proceed with the purchase of the vessel. The joint venture is currently working with DVB Asia, Pacific Crest and Pacific Radiance to market and sell the vessel and is in negotiations with another potential purchaser. Based on the purchase offers received, our Investment Manager concluded that there was an indication that the then net carrying value of the vessel may not be recoverable. As a result, our Investment Manager performed an impairment test on the vessel and concluded that the joint venture should record an additional impairment loss of $7,345,225 during the three months ended June 30, 2018, of which no loss was allocated to us as our investment in the joint venture was previously written down to zero. Determining the fair value of the vessel involves significant judgment due to the lack of sales activity in the market that the vessel operates. The joint venture and DVB Asia are motivated to sell the vessel as the vessel is the primary collateral securing our non-recourse long-term debt with DVB Asia. An additional impairment loss or loss on sale may be recorded by the joint venture in future periods to the extent the fair value of the vessel decreases or the final purchase price for the vessel is below the net carrying value as of June 30, 2018. However, a gain on extinguishment of debt may also be recognized by the joint venture in a future period as a result of applying the sale proceeds to settle the related non-recourse long-term debt.

(7)    Investment in Cost-Method Investees

As part of the restructuring of our note receivable with TMA, ICON acquired a 12.5% equity interest in two affiliates of TMA. In proportion to our share of the ICON Loan, our share of such equity interest in these two entities is 1.56%. Due to our ownership interest and that we were able to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of these two affiliates of TMA, we accounted for our investment in such equity interest under the equity method of accounting.

On June 29, 2018, ICON’s appointee to the board of directors of the two affiliates of TMA resigned as a board member and as a result, no longer participates in voting on any matter associated with the business operations of these two entities. As a result, we are no longer deemed to be able to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of these two entities. We recorded our share of loss of $37,351 from these two equity-method investees through June 29, 2018 and reclassified the amount related to these two affiliates of TMA from investment in equity-method investees to investment in cost-method investees as of June 30, 2018.
(8)    Non-Recourse Long-Term Debt
 
As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, we had the following non-recourse long-term debt:

* The interest rate was fixed at 4.117% after giving effect to the interest rate swaps entered into on February 8, 2016. Effective December 31, 2016, the interest rate of the variable rate senior loan increased by 0.25% pursuant to an amended facility agreement.

All of our non-recourse long-term debt obligations consist of notes payable in which the lender has a security interest in the underlying assets. If the lessee was to default on the underlying lease, resulting in our default on the non-recourse long-term debt, the assets could be foreclosed upon and the proceeds would be remitted to the lender in extinguishment of that debt. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the total carrying value of assets subject to non-recourse long-term debt was $108,313,338 and $115,252,600, respectively.
 
On June 4, 2012, a joint venture owned 60% by us and 40% by Fund Fourteen drew down on its loan facility with DVB Bank SE (“DVB SE”) in the amount of $17,500,000 at a fixed rate of 4.997% to partly finance the purchase of the AMC Ambassador. On June 27, 2018, the remaining portion of the proceeds from the sale of the AMC Ambassador of $944,544 was used to settle our non-recourse debt obligations to DVB SE. As a result, we recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $4,764,270 after amortizing the remaining deferred financing costs.  

As part of amending the bareboat charters with the affiliates of Fugro (see Note 4), effective December 29, 2017, the indirect subsidiaries also amended the facility agreement with ABN AMRO, Rabobank and NIBC on April 6, 2018 to,

among other things, increase the interest rate on the senior secured loans to share the economic benefits of the amended bareboat charters.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, we recognized interest expense of $133,882 and $126,789, respectively, related to the amortization of debt financing costs associated with our non-recourse long-term debt. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, we recognized interest expense of $248,779 and $255,808, respectively, related to the amortization of debt financing costs associated with our non-recourse long-term debt.

At June 30, 2018, we were in compliance with all covenants related to our non-recourse long-term debt.

(9)    Transactions with Related Parties
We paid distributions to our General Partner of $10,052 for both three month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. We paid distributions to our General Partner of $67,003 and $23,253 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Our General Partner’s interest in our net income (loss) was $30,216 and $(21,735) for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  Our General Partner’s interest in our net income (loss) was $40,269 and $(16,279) for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Effective July 1, 2016, our Investment Manager reduced its management fee by 50% (up to 1.75% of the gross periodic payments due and paid from our investments). Effective December 1, 2017, our Investment Manager waived all future management fees.

At June 30, 2018, we had a net receivable of $97,056 due from our General Partner and affiliates, which primarily consisted of administrative expense reimbursements due from our Investment Manager.
 
At December 31, 2017, we had a net payable of $3,385,928 due to our General Partner and affiliates that primarily consisted of a note payable of $3,320,770 and accrued interest of $29,974 due to Fund Fourteen related to its noncontrolling interest in the AMC Ambassador, and administrative expense reimbursements of $50,267 due to our Investment Manager. As a result of the sale of the AMC Ambassador by our joint venture (see Note 5), the balance of the note payable and related accrued interest were converted to investment by noncontrolling interests as of June 30, 2018.

In June 2016, we sold our interests in certain of our subsidiaries and a joint venture to unaffiliated third parties. In connection with the sales, the third parties required that an affiliate of our Investment Manager provide bookkeeping and administrative services related to such assets for a fee.
(10)    Derivative Financial Instruments
We may enter into derivative financial instruments for purposes of hedging specific financial exposures, including movements in foreign currency exchange rates and changes in interest rates on our non-recourse long-term debt. We enter into these instruments only for hedging underlying exposures. We do not hold or issue derivative financial instruments for purposes other than hedging. Certain derivatives may not meet the established criteria to be designated as qualifying accounting hedges, even though we believe that these are effective economic hedges.

We recognize all derivative financial instruments as either assets or liabilities on our consolidated balance sheets and measure those instruments at fair value. Changes in the fair value of such instruments are recognized immediately in earnings unless certain criteria are met. These criteria demonstrate that the derivative is expected to be highly effective at offsetting changes in the fair value or expected cash flows of the underlying exposure at both the inception of the hedging relationship and on an ongoing basis and include an evaluation of the counterparty risk and the impact, if any, on the effectiveness of the derivative. If these criteria are met, which we must document and assess at inception and on an ongoing basis, we recognize the changes in fair value of such instruments in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), a component of equity on our consolidated balance sheets. Changes in the fair value of the ineffective portion of all derivatives are recognized immediately in earnings.

U.S. GAAP and relevant International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. agreements permit a reporting entity that is a party to a master netting agreement to offset fair value amounts recognized for derivative instruments that have been offset under the same master netting agreement. We elected to present the fair value of derivative contracts on a gross basis on our consolidated balance sheets.

Interest Rate Risk
Our objectives in using interest rate derivatives are to add stability to interest expense and to manage our exposure to interest rate movements on our variable non-recourse debt. Our strategy to accomplish these objectives is to match the projected future cash flows with the underlying debt service. Each interest rate swap involves the receipt of floating-rate interest payments from a counterparty in exchange for us making fixed-rate interest payments over the life of the agreement without exchange of the underlying notional amount.

Counterparty Risk
We manage exposure to possible defaults on derivative financial instruments by monitoring the concentration of risk that we have with any individual bank and through the use of minimum credit quality standards for all counterparties. We do not require collateral or other security in relation to derivative financial instruments. Since it is our policy to enter into derivative contracts only with banks of internationally acknowledged standing and the fair value of our derivatives is in a liability position, we consider the counterparty risk to be remote.

Credit Risk
Derivative contracts may contain credit-risk related contingent features that can trigger a termination event, such as maintaining specified financial ratios. In the event that we would be required to settle our obligations under the derivative contracts as of June 30, 2018, the termination value would be a receivable of $2,506,484.

Non-designated Derivatives
On February 8, 2016, we entered into two interest rate swaps with ABN AMRO that are not designated and not qualifying as cash flow hedges. As of June 30, 2018, the aggregate notional amount of the two interest rate swaps was $72,041,667. These interest rate swaps are not speculative and are used to meet our objectives in using interest rate derivatives to add stability to interest expense and to manage our exposure to interest rate movements. All changes in the fair value of the interest rate swaps not designated as hedges are recorded directly in earnings, which is included in gain (loss) on derivative financial instruments on our consolidated statements of operations.

The table below presents the fair value of our derivative financial instruments as well as their classification within our consolidated balance sheets as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

Our derivative financial instruments not designated as hedging instruments generated a gain (loss) on derivative financial instruments on our consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 of $273,201 and $(339,787), respectively. Our derivative financial instruments not designated as hedging instruments generated a gain (loss) on derivative financial instruments on our consolidated statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 of $1,000,658 and $(275,123), respectively.
(11)       Fair Value Measurements
Assets and liabilities carried at fair value are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:
 
Level 1: Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.
Level 2: Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.
Level 3: Pricing inputs that are generally unobservable and are supported by little or no market data.
 
Financial Assets Measured on a Recurring Basis
Financial assets are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Our Investment Manager’s assessment, on our behalf, of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment and may affect the valuation of the assets being measured and their placement within the fair value hierarchy.

The following table summarizes the valuation of our financial assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2018:

Our interest rate swaps are valued using models based on readily observable market parameters for all substantial terms of such derivative financial instruments and are classified within Level 2. In accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use market prices and pricing models for fair value measurements of our derivative financial instruments.

Interest Rate Swaps
We utilize a model that incorporates common market pricing methods as well as underlying characteristics of the particular swap contract. Interest rate swaps are modeled by incorporating such inputs as the term to maturity, LIBOR swap curves, Overnight Index Swap curves and the payment rate on the fixed portion of the interest rate swap. Such inputs are classified within Level 2. Thereafter, we compare third party quotations received to our own estimate of fair value to evaluate for reasonableness. The fair value of the interest rate swaps was recorded in derivative financial instruments within our consolidated balance sheets.

Assets and Liabilities for which Fair Value is Disclosed
 
Certain of our financial assets and liabilities, which includes fixed-rate notes receivable, fixed-rate non-recourse long-term debt, and seller’s credits, for which fair value is required to be disclosed, were valued using inputs that are generally unobservable and are supported by little or no market data and are therefore classified within Level 3. Fair value information with respect to certain of our other assets and liabilities is not separately provided since (i) U.S. GAAP does not require fair value disclosures of lease arrangements and (ii) the carrying value of financial assets and liabilities, other than lease-related investments, approximates fair value due to their short-term maturities.

(12)    Income Taxes 
We are taxed as a partnership for federal and state income tax purposes. Therefore, no provision for federal and state income taxes has been recorded for the partnership since the liability for these taxes is the responsibility of each of the individual partners rather than our business as a whole. However, the Taiwan branch of our direct wholly-owned subsidiary, ICON Taiwan Semiconductor, LLC (the “Inotera Taiwan Branch”), is taxed as a corporation under the laws of Taiwan, Republic of China. We sold our revenue-generating asset owned by the Inotera Taiwan Branch in 2016 and as a result, no significant future income tax expense or benefit is expected. The Taiwan corporate income tax rate is 18.0% for 2018. Under the laws of Taiwan, Republic of China, the Inotera Taiwan Branch is subject to income tax examination for the 2014 tax year and subsequent tax years. We have not identified any material uncertain tax positions as of June 30, 2018.

We are potentially subject to New York City unincorporated business tax (“UBT”), which is imposed on unincorporated trade or business operating in New York City. The UBT is imposed for each taxable year at a rate of 4% of taxable income allocated to New York City.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, we recorded $0 and $9,289, respectively, of current income tax expense. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, we recorded $76,542 and $507,214, respectively, of current income tax expense.
(13)   Commitments and Contingencies
At the time we acquire or divest of our interest in Capital Assets, we may, under very limited circumstances, agree to indemnify the seller or buyer for specific contingent liabilities. Our General Partner believes that any liability of ours that may arise as a result of any such indemnification obligations may or may not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial condition or results of operations taken as a whole. In addition, at times we may seek to enforce our rights under a personal guaranty in order to collect amounts from the guarantor that are owed to us by a defaulting borrower or lessee. Gain contingencies may arise from enforcement of such guaranty, but are not recognized until realizable. 
 
In connection with certain debt obligations, we are required to maintain restricted cash balances with certain banks. At June 30, 2018, we had restricted cash of $4,409,501.

Overview
 
We are a direct financing fund that primarily made investments in domestic and international companies, which investments were primarily structured as debt and debt-like financings (such as loans and leases) that are collateralized by Capital Assets utilized by such companies to operate their businesses, as well as other strategic investments in or collateralized by Capital Assets that our General Partner believes will provide us with a satisfactory, risk-adjusted rate of return. We were formed as a Delaware limited partnership and have elected to be treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. As of July 28, 2011 (the "Initial Closing Date"), we raised a minimum of $1,200,000 from the sale of our limited partnership interests ("Interests"), at which time we commenced operations. From the commencement of our offering on June 6, 2011 through the completion of our offering on June 6, 2013, we sold 197,597 Interests to 4,644 limited partners, representing $196,688,918 of capital contributions. Investors from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of Tennessee were not admitted until we raised total equity in the amount of $20,000,000, which we achieved on November 17, 2011.

Our operating period commenced on June 7, 2013. After the net offering proceeds were invested, we reinvested the cash generated from our initial investments to the extent that cash was not used for our expenses, reserves and distributions to our partners. On April 24, 2017, we commenced a consent solicitation of our limited partners to amend and restate our limited partnership agreement in order to amend the definition of “operating period” to provide for the ability of our General Partner to shorten our operating period in its sole and absolute discretion. The consent solicitation was completed on May 24, 2017 with the requisite consents received from our limited partners.  As a result, our General Partner ended our operating period on May 31, 2017 and commenced our liquidation period on June 1, 2017. During our liquidation period, we have sold and will continue to sell our assets and/or let our investments mature in the ordinary course of business.

On May 30, 2017, our Investment Manager retained ABN AMRO Securities as its financial advisor to assist our Investment Manager and us in identifying, evaluating and executing a potential sale of certain shipping and offshore energy assets currently included within our investment portfolio. As a result of such identification and evaluation, on July 23, 2018, we entered into a sale and purchase agreement to sell our interests in the joint venture related to Fugro (as discussed in further detail below). 

Our General Partner manages and controls our business affairs, including, but not limited to, our investments in Capital Assets, under the terms of our amended and restated limited partnership agreement.  Our Investment Manager, an affiliate of our General Partner, originated and services our investments.

Recent Significant Transactions

We engaged in the following significant transactions since December 31, 2017:

Notes Receivable
 
On January 5, 2018, ICON, the Senior Lender and TMA executed all definitive agreements in connection with the restructuring of TMA’s outstanding debt obligations including, without limitation, the Second Amendment. Under the Second Amendment, ICON funded a total of $8,000,000 in exchange for (i) all amounts payable under the Senior Loan would amortize at a faster rate, at which time ICON would become the senior lender and have a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the earnings generated by the vessels; and (ii) a 12.5% equity interest in two affiliates of TMA. Also as part of the Second Amendment, ICON agreed to reduce its aggregate notes and interest receivables to $20,000,000 in connection with the overall restructuring plan. As a result of the Second Amendment, on January 5, 2018, we funded our additional commitment of $1,000,000, which represented our share of the total additional commitment to TMA, and our note and interest receivables due from TMA were reduced to $2,500,000. As of January 5, 2018, our share of the fair value of the 12.5% equity interest in two affiliates of TMA was estimated to be $450,000, which was based on an independent third-party valuation. Of our $1,000,000 additional commitment to TMA, we recorded $450,000 as an investment accounted for under the equity method of accounting and the remaining $550,000 as an additional loan to TMA. As a result of this restructuring, during the three months ended March 31, 2018, we wrote off the allowance for credit loss of $2,615,158 related to TMA, of which $1,064,668 was previously reserved against the accrued interest receivable and $1,550,490 was previously reserved against our net investment in notes receivable. In addition, we also wrote off the corresponding $1,064,668 accrued interest receivable. In accordance with the Second Amendment, our restructured loan of $2,500,000 bears interest at a rate of 12% per year and is scheduled to mature on January 5, 2021. The amended TMA Facility is secured by substantially the same collateral that secured the TMA Facility prior to the restructuring.

On June 12, 2018, all of TMA’s obligations to the Senior Lender and all amounts payable under the Senior Loan were satisfied in full. As a result, ICON became the agent and senior lender and has a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the earnings generated by the vessels. Interest was accrued as PIK interest until the Senior Loan was satisfied in full. Upon satisfaction of the Senior Loan, (i) $131,667 of PIK interest was reclassified to principal; and (ii) the ICON Loan is being amortized at 25% per year and together with interest, is payable quarterly in arrears. On July 5, 2018, we extended the due date of certain payments from TMA for an additional 15 days for a fee of $3,750. Such payments were timely received from TMA.
As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, our net investment in notes receivable related to TMA was $2,631,667 and $1,950,000, respectively. In addition, as of December 31, 2017, we had an accrued interest receivable related to TMA of $1,064,668, which had been fully reserved, resulting in a net carrying value of $0. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, we recognized finance income of $77,942 and $148,775, respectively, of which no amount was recognized on a cash basis. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, we recognized finance income of $0 and $111,279, respectively, of which no amount was recognized on a cash basis.

Marine Vessels

On February 14, 2018, Foreguard Shipping purchased the EPIC Vessels from two indirect subsidiaries of a joint venture owned 12.5% by us for an aggregate purchase price of $32,412,488. As a result, the bareboat charters were terminated. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the EPIC Vessels was used to satisfy in full the seller's credit to Foreguard Shipping and the related outstanding non-recourse long-term debt obligations to DVB Asia. As a result, the joint venture recorded a loss of $3,018,839, of which our share was $377,355. The loss was primarily due to (i) the seller’s credit, which was satisfied in full at its maturity amount of $9,500,000 rather than its then-present value of $7,355,183 prior to the sale, and (ii) the write-off of the remaining unamortized indirect costs.

On April 20, 2018, a joint venture owned 12.5% by us, 75% by Fund Twelve and 12.5% by Fund Fourteen entered into the DVB Asia Agreement with DVB Asia under which the parties agreed to (i) cooperate to market and sell the offshore supply vessel, (ii) the application of any future payments that may be received by the joint venture from Pacific Crest and/or Pacific Radiance in settlement of all obligations and liabilities of Pacific Crest and Pacific Radiance under the bareboat charter and the guaranty, respectively, and (iii) the application of the sale proceeds from any future sale of the vessel.
On May 14, 2018, the joint venture entered into a settlement agreement with Pacific Crest, Pacific Radiance and DVB Asia under which, among other things, (i) the parties agreed to terminate the bareboat charter and the joint venture would release Pacific Crest and Pacific Radiance from all obligations and liabilities under the bareboat charter and the guaranty,

respectively, in each case upon the joint venture’s receipt of a $1,000,000 payment from Pacific Crest, a portion of which will be used to make a partial repayment on the outstanding debt to DVB Asia; (ii) the parties agreed to cooperate to market and sell the offshore supply vessel; and (iii) Pacific Crest released the joint venture from its obligation to repay the seller's credit and Pacific Crest will continue to maintain the vessel in its current condition until the earlier of the sale of the vessel or December 15, 2018. On May 18, 2018, the joint venture received the $1,000,000 payment from Pacific Crest, of which (a) the joint venture is entitled to $566,667, of which our share is $70,833 and, (b) the remaining $433,333 will be applied toward the repayment of the joint venture’s outstanding non-recourse debt to DVB Asia in accordance with the DVB Asia Agreement.
On May 16, 2018, Pacific Radiance and its subsidiaries (including Pacific Crest) made applications to the Singapore High Court seeking interim protection against legal proceedings and other claims as they seek to restructure their outstanding debt obligations with stakeholders. On June 11, 2018, the Court granted such protection to Pacific Radiance and its subsidiaries (including Pacific Crest) until December 2018.
On June 4, 2018, the joint venture entered into an exclusivity agreement with a potential purchaser of the offshore supply vessel under which the joint venture agreed to exclusively negotiate with such potential purchaser for the sale of the vessel to permit the potential purchaser to bid on a bareboat charter that if accepted, would employ the offshore supply vessel. In exchange for exclusivity, the potential purchaser paid a $25,000 nonrefundable fee to the joint venture. The exclusivity agreement has since expired and the joint venture was informed by the potential purchaser that it would not proceed with the purchase of the vessel. The joint venture is currently working with DVB Asia, Pacific Crest and Pacific Radiance to market and sell the vessel and is in negotiations with another potential purchaser. Based on the purchase offers received, our Investment Manager concluded that there was an indication that the then net carrying value of the vessel may not be recoverable. As a result, our Investment Manager performed an impairment test on the vessel and concluded that the joint venture should record an additional impairment loss of $7,345,225 during the three months ended June 30, 2018, of which no loss was allocated to us as our investment in the joint venture was previously written down to zero. Determining the fair value of the vessel involves significant judgment due to the lack of sales activity in the market that the vessel operates. The joint venture and DVB Asia are motivated to sell the vessel as the vessel is the primary collateral securing our non-recourse long-term debt with DVB Asia. An additional impairment loss or loss on sale may be recorded by the joint venture in future periods to the extent the fair value of the vessel decreases or the final purchase price for the vessel is below the net carrying value as of June 30, 2018. However, a gain on extinguishment of debt may also be recognized by the joint venture in a future period as a result of applying the sale proceeds to settle the related non-recourse long-term debt.

On June 27, 2018, we sold the AMC Ambassador to a third-party purchaser for $1,500,000. A portion of the sale proceeds was used to satisfy in full certain third-party claims against the vessel of $555,456, with the remaining portion used to settle our non-recourse debt obligations related to the vessel. As a result, we recognized a loss on sale of vessel of $2,045,055 and recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $4,764,270.

Geotechnical Drilling Vessels

In anticipation of a potential breach of a financial covenant by Fugro on December 31, 2017, effective December 29, 2017, the indirect subsidiaries of a joint venture owned 75% by us and the affiliates of Fugro amended the bareboat charters on April 6, 2018 to, among other things, amend certain financial covenants, increase the daily charter rate and provide for additional security deposits. As part of the amendment, the joint venture received a fee of $55,000. Effective December 29, 2017, the indirect subsidiaries also amended the facility agreement with ABN AMRO, Rabobank and NIBC on April 6, 2018 to, among other things, increase the interest rate on the senior secured loans to share the economic benefits of the amended bareboat charters.

On July 23, 2018, we, Fund Fourteen and Fund Sixteen entered into a sale and purchase agreement to sell 100% of the limited liability company interests of the joint venture related to Fugro to an unaffiliated third-party. The sale is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. We cannot provide any assurance if and when the sale transaction will be completed. Upon the closing of the sale transaction, it is anticipated that a loss on sale will be recorded based on the purchase price pursuant to the sale and purchase agreement.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which we adopted on January 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2014-09 did not have an effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which we adopted on January 1, 2018. As a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-01, we are no longer required to make certain disclosures related to the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate fair value for financial instruments measured at amortized cost.

In August 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which we adopted on January 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2016-15 did not have an effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In November 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows, which we adopted on January 1, 2018. As a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-18, we commenced presenting restricted cash with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts presented on our consolidated statements of cash flows. We adopted ASU 2016-18 using the retrospective method. As a result, the effects of adopting ASU 2016-18 on our consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were to (i) increase cash provided by operating activities and decrease cash provided by investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 by $1,303,052 and $160,855, respectively, and (ii) increase cash and restricted cash at June 30, 2017 by $4,656,137.

In January 2017, FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations, which we adopted on January 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2017-01 did not have an effect on our consolidated financial statements.

Other Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, which will become effective for us on January 1, 2019. Based on our preliminary assessment, all of our leases are subject to lessor accounting and the accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under current U.S. GAAP. In addition, since we are in our liquidation period and not expecting to enter into any new leases in the future and it is expected that we will apply the practical expedients as provided by the guidance, the adoption of ASU 2016-02 may not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements. We continue to evaluate the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-02 on our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses, which will become effective for us on January 1, 2020. We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-13 on our consolidated financial statements.

We do not believe any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

Non-performing Assets within Financing Transactions

TMA was in technical default due to its failure to cause all four platform supply vessels to be under contract by March 31, 2015 and was in payment default while available cash was swept by the Senior Lender and applied to the Senior Loan in accordance with the secured term loan credit facility agreement. As a result, the principal balance of the Senior Loan amortized at a faster rate. During the 2017 Quarter, our Investment Manager believed it was prudent to place the note receivable on non-accrual status. In September 2017, our Investment Manager met with certain restructuring advisors engaged by TMA to discuss a potential restructuring of the company. In light of these developments and a decrease in the fair market value of the collateral, in which we had a second priority security interest, our Investment Manager determined to record credit losses commencing with the three months ended September 30, 2017. As of December 31, 2017, our net investment in notes receivable related to TMA was $1,950,000, net of a credit loss reserve of $1,550,490. In addition, as of December 31, 2017, we had an accrued interest receivable related to TMA of $1,064,668, which had been fully reserved, resulting in a net carrying value of $0. On January 5, 2018, ICON, the Senior Lender and TMA entered into the Second Amendment. Under the Second Amendment, ICON funded a total of $8,000,000 in exchange for (i) all amounts payable under the Senior Loan would amortize at a faster rate, at which time ICON would become the senior lender and have a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the earnings generated by the vessels; and (ii) a 12.5% equity interest in two affiliates of TMA. Also as part of the Second Amendment, ICON agreed to reduce its aggregate notes and interest receivables to $20,000,000 in connection with the overall restructuring plan. As a result of the Second Amendment, on January 5, 2018, we funded our additional commitment of $1,000,000, which represented our share of the total additional commitment to TMA, and our note and interest receivables due from TMA were reduced to $2,500,000. On June 12, 2018, all of TMA’s obligations to the Senior Lender and all amounts payable under the Senior Loan were satisfied in full. As a result, ICON became the agent and senior lender and has a first priority security interest in the four vessels and TMA’s right to the earnings generated by the vessels. Interest was accrued as PIK interest until the Senior Loan was satisfied in full. Upon satisfaction of the Senior Loan, (i) $131,667 of PIK interest was reclassified to principal; and (ii) the ICON Loan is being amortized at 25% per year and together with interest, is payable quarterly in arrears. On July 5, 2018, we extended the due date of certain payments from TMA for an additional 15 days for a fee of $3,750. Such payments were timely received from TMA. During the 2018 Quarter and the 2017 Quarter, we recognized finance income of $77,942 and $0, respectively, of which no amount was recognized on a cash basis.

Impaired Leased Asset within Operating Lease Transactions

Upon termination of the bareboat and time charters with Gallatin and EMAS, respectively, we reclassified the AMC Ambassador from net investment in finance leases to vessel on our consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2017 at the net carrying value of $8,000,000, which approximated the then fair market value. During the 2017 Quarter, we repossessed the AMC Ambassador. As part of this process, we obtained an updated third-party appraisal for the vessel, which provided an estimated fair value as of June 30, 2017 for the vessel that was below its then net book value. As a result, we recorded an impairment loss of $2,000,000 during the 2017 Quarter. As part of our annual assessment of asset impairment, based on an updated third-party appraisal that we obtained for the AMC Ambassador, our Investment Manager determined that an impairment existed and as a result, recorded an additional impairment loss of $1,817,962 during the three months ended December 31, 2017. On June 27, 2018, we sold the AMC Ambassador to a third-party purchaser for $1,500,000. A portion of the sale proceeds was used to satisfy in full certain third-party claims against the vessel of $555,456, with the remaining portion used to settle our non-recourse debt obligations related to the vessel. As a result, we recognized a loss on sale of vessel of $2,045,055 and recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $4,764,270. We did not recognize any income during the 2018 Quarter. For the 2017 Quarter, we recognized finance income of $156,975, which was recognized on a cash basis.

Total revenue and other income for the 2018 Quarter increased $6,858,380, or 213.5%, as compared to the 2017 Quarter. The increase was primarily due to (i) the gain on extinguishment of debt related to the non-recourse long-term debt associated with the AMC Ambassador upon the sale of such vessel and the application of the sales proceeds during the 2018 Quarter, (ii) the loss from investment in joint ventures and equity-method investees primarily due to the allocation of our proportionate share of the impairment loss recorded by our joint venture related to Pacific Crest during the 2017 Quarter with no comparable

23


allocation to us during the 2018 Quarter as our investment in this joint venture has been written down to zero, (iii) an increase in rental income as a result of a threshold being met pursuant to our amended bareboat charters related to the Fugro Vessels and (iv) a gain recognized on our derivative financial instruments during the 2018 Quarter related to the interest rate swaps associated with the debt incurred to finance the acquisition of the Fugro Vessels as opposed to a loss recognized in total expenses during the 2017 Quarter. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in finance income primarily due to the prepayment of a secured term loan and a finance lease during or subsequent to the 2017 Quarter, partially offset by default interest that we charged on our note receivable with Lubricating Specialties Company ("LSC") during the 2018 Quarter.

Total expenses for the 2018 Quarter decreased $348,659, or 5.6%, as compared to the 2017 Quarter. The decrease in total expenses was primarily due to (i) an impairment loss recorded during the 2017 Quarter related to the AMC Ambassador with no loss recorded during the 2018 Quarter, (ii) a loss on derivative financial instruments recorded during the 2017 Quarter related to the movement of the interest rate swaps associated with the debt used to finance the acquisition of the Fugro Vessels as opposed to a gain recognized in total revenue and other income during the 2018 Quarter and (iii) a decrease in general and administrative expenses primarily due to a decrease in legal fees incurred during the 2018 Quarter in connection with the potential sale of our assets. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in loss on sale of vessel due to the sale of the AMC Ambassador during the 2018 Quarter with no such sale during the 2017 Quarter, and an increase in interest expense as a result of a threshold being met pursuant to our facility agreement with ABN AMRO, Rabobank and NIBC during the 2018 Quarter.

 Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Noncontrolling Interests
 
Net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests changed by $2,021,223, from a net loss of $850,945 in the 2017 Quarter to net income of $1,170,278 in the 2018 Quarter. This change was primarily due to net income recorded by our consolidated joint venture that owned the AMC Ambassador primarily as a result of the gain on extinguishment of debt recorded by the joint venture during the 2018 Quarter as compared to an impairment loss recorded by the joint venture during the 2017 Quarter.
 
Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Fund Fifteen
 
As a result of the foregoing factors, net income (loss) attributable to us for the 2018 Quarter and the 2017 Quarter was $3,021,642 and $(2,173,463), respectively. Net income (loss) attributable to us per weighted average Interest outstanding for the 2018 Quarter and the 2017 Quarter was $15.16 and $(10.90), respectively.

Impaired Lease Asset within Operating Lease Transactions

Upon termination of the bareboat and time charters with Gallatin and EMAS, respectively, we reclassified the AMC Ambassador from net investment in finance leases to vessel on our consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2017 at the

net carrying value of $8,000,000, which approximated the then fair market value. During the 2017 Period, we repossessed the AMC Ambassador. As part of this process, we obtained an updated third-party appraisal for the vessel, which provided an estimated fair value as of June 30, 2017 for the vessel that was below its then net book value. As a result, we recorded an impairment loss of $2,000,000 during the 2017 Period. As part of our annual assessment of asset impairment, based on an updated third-party appraisal that we obtained for the AMC Ambassador, our Investment Manager determined that an impairment existed and as a result, recorded an additional impairment loss of $1,817,962 during the three months ended December 31, 2017. On June 27, 2018, we sold the AMC Ambassador to a third-party purchaser for $1,500,000. A portion of the sale proceeds was used to satisfy in full certain third-party claims against the vessel of $555,456, with the remaining portion used to settle our non-recourse debt obligations related to the vessel. As a result, we recognized a loss on sale of vessel of $2,045,055 and recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $4,764,270. We did not recognize any income during the 2018 Period. For the 2017 Period, we recognized finance income of $156,975, which was recognized on a cash basis.

Total revenue and other income for the 2018 Period increased $7,231,592, or 89.7%, as compared to the 2017 Period. The increase was primarily due to (i) the gain on extinguishment of debt related to the non-recourse long-term debt associated with the AMC Ambassador upon the sale of such vessel and the application of the sales proceeds during the 2018 Period, (ii) the loss from investment in joint ventures and equity-method investees primarily due to the allocation of our proportionate share of the impairment loss recorded by our joint venture related to Pacific Crest during the 2017 Period with no comparable allocation to us during the 2018 Period as our investment in this joint venture has been written down to zero, (iii) a gain recognized on our derivative financial instruments during the 2018 Period related to the interest rate swaps associated with the debt incurred to finance the acquisition of the Fugro Vessels as opposed to a loss recognized in total expenses during the 2017 Period and (iv) an increase in rental income as a result of a threshold being met pursuant to our amended bareboat charters related to the Fugro Vessels. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in finance income primarily due to prepayments of certain secured term loans and a finance lease during or subsequent to the 2017 Period, partially offset by default interest that we charged on our note receivable with LSC during the 2018 Period.

Total expenses for the 2018 Period decreased $78,367, or 0.8%, as compared to the 2017 Period. The decrease in total expenses was primarily due to (i) an impairment loss recorded during the 2017 Period related to the AMC Ambassador with no loss recorded during the 2018 Period, (ii) a decrease in administrative expense reimbursements due to reduced costs

incurred on our behalf by our Investment Manager, (iii) a loss on derivative financial instruments recorded during the 2017 Period related to the movement of the interest rate swaps associated with the debt used to finance the acquisition of the Fugro Vessels as opposed to a gain recognized in total revenue and other income during the 2018 Period and (iv) no management fees incurred during the 2018 Period due to our Investment Manager waiving all future management fees effective December 1, 2017. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in loss on sale of vessel due to the sale of the AMC Ambassador during the 2018 Period with no such sale during the 2017 Period, and an increase in interest expense as a result of a threshold being met pursuant to our facility agreement with ABN AMRO, Rabobank and NIBC during the 2018 Period.

Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Noncontrolling Interests

Net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests changed by $2,085,815, from a net loss of $840,184 in the 2017 Period to net income of $1,245,631 in the 2018 Period. This change was primarily due to net income recorded by our consolidated joint venture that owned the AMC Ambassador primarily as a result of the gain on extinguishment of debt recorded by the joint venture during the 2018 Period as compared to an impairment loss recorded by the joint venture during the 2017 Period.

Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Fund Fifteen

As a result of the foregoing factors, net income (loss) attributable to us for the 2018 Period and the 2017 Period was $4,026,946 and $(1,627,870), respectively. Net income (loss) attributable to us per weighted average Interest outstanding for the 2018 Period and the 2017 Period was $20.20 and $(8.16), respectively.

Financial Condition
 
This section discusses the major balance sheet variances at June 30, 2018 compared to December 31, 2017.
 
Total Assets
 
Total assets decreased $10,425,477, from $170,639,097 at December 31, 2017 to $160,213,620 at June 30, 2018. The decrease in total assets was primarily due to (i) the use of existing cash and cash generated and returned from our investments to (a) pay distributions to our partners and (b) repay certain of our non-recourse long-term debt and related interest and (ii) the depreciation of our leased equipment at cost and vessel. 
 
Total Liabilities
 
Total liabilities decreased $12,549,456, from $102,999,059 at December 31, 2017 to $90,449,603 at June 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the (i) extinguishment and repayment of certain of our debt obligations, (ii) conversion of the note payable and accrued interest due to Fund Fourteen to investment by noncontrolling interests and (iii) timing of the payment of certain of our liabilities during the 2018 Period. These decreases were partially offset by the interest accretion on our seller's credits during the 2018 Period.

Equity
 
Equity increased $2,123,979, from $67,640,038 at December 31, 2017 to $69,764,017 at June 30, 2018. The increase was due to our net income and the conversion of the note payable and accrued interest due to Fund Fourteen to investment by noncontrolling interests, partially offset by distributions paid to our partners and noncontrolling interests, all during the 2018 Period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Summary
 
At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, we had cash of $13,026,688 and $17,797,894, respectively.  Pursuant to the terms of our offering, we have established a cash reserve in the amount of 0.50% of the gross offering proceeds from the sale of our Interests. As of June 30, 2018, the cash reserve was $983,445. During our liquidation period, which commenced on June 1, 2017, we expect our main sources of cash will be from the collection of rental income from our operating leases, income and principal on our notes receivable and proceeds from the sale of assets held directly by us or indirectly by our joint ventures. We expect our main use of cash will be for distributions to our partners and noncontrolling interests. Our liquidity will vary in the future, increasing to the extent cash flows from investments and proceeds from the sale of our investments exceed expenses and decreasing as we pay distributions to our partners and noncontrolling interests and to the extent that expenses exceed cash flows from operations and proceeds from the sale of our investments.
 
We believe that cash on hand and cash generated from the expected results of our operations will be sufficient to finance our liquidity requirements for the foreseeable future. Our equipment financing business encountered significant challenges over the past several years. Specifically, we suffered from (i) an unprecedented and prolonged weakness in global shipping and offshore markets; and (ii) increasing competition over the last few years from larger alternative lenders that had not historically competed with us for investment opportunities. These challenges, along with the increasing costs associated with managing a public equipment fund, made it increasingly difficult for us to operate in the same manner that we operated under since inception. Accordingly, our Investment Manager commenced our liquidation period on June 1, 2017, during which we have sold and will continue to sell our assets and/or let our investments mature in the ordinary course of business. 
 
Our ability to generate cash in the future is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, regulatory and other factors that affect us and our borrowers’ and lessees’ businesses that are beyond our control.
 
We have used the net proceeds of our offering and the cash generated from our investments to invest in Capital Assets located in North America, Europe and other developed markets, including those in Asia and elsewhere.  We have sought to acquire a portfolio of Capital Assets that is comprised of transactions that generate (a) current cash flow from payments of principal and/or interest (in the case of secured loans and other financing transactions) and rental payments (in the case of leases), (b) deferred cash flow by realizing the value of Capital Assets or interests therein at the maturity of the investment, or (c) a combination of both. 
 
Unanticipated or greater than anticipated operating costs or losses (including a borrower’s inability to make timely loan payments or a lessee’s inability to make timely lease payments) would adversely affect our liquidity.
 
Cash Flows
 
Operating Activities 
Cash provided by operating activities increased $2,286,127, from $3,212,660 in the 2017 Period to $5,498,787 in the 2018 Period. The increase was primarily due to the timing of payments of certain liabilities and the collection of certain receivables from period-to-period. 

Investing Activities  
Cash provided by investing activities decreased $3,482,868, from $4,232,574 in the 2017 Period to $749,706 in the 2018 Period. The decrease was primarily due to (i) sale proceeds received from the sale of assets previously leased to Challenge Mfg. Company, LLC and certain of its affiliates during the 2017 Period with no such sales during the 2018 Period, (ii) a reduction in principal received on our notes receivable primarily due to the prepayment of a note receivable during the 2017 Period with no comparable prepayment during the 2018 Period and (iii) the additional $1,000,000 that we funded as part of the TMA restructuring during the 2018 Period. The decrease was partially offset by an increase in distributions received from joint ventures in excess of profits due to the sale of the EPIC Vessels by one of our joint ventures during the 2018 Period.


28


Financing Activities 
Cash used in financing activities increased $3,586,240, from $7,178,888 in the 2017 Period to $10,765,128 in the 2018 Period. The increase was primarily due to an increase in distributions to our partners during the 2018 Period, partially offset by a decrease in the repayment of our non-recourse long-term debt.
 
Financings and Borrowings

Non-Recourse Long-Term Debt
We had non-recourse long-term debt obligations at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 of $70,887,000 and $79,969,199, respectively, related to certain vessels, the Fugro Scout and the Fugro Voyager. All of our non-recourse long-term debt obligations consist of notes payable in which the lender has a security interest in the underlying assets. If the lessee was to default on the underlying lease, resulting in our default on the non-recourse long-term debt, the assets could be foreclosed upon and the proceeds would be remitted to the lender in extinguishment of that debt. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the total carrying value of assets subject to non-recourse long-term debt was $108,313,338 and $115,252,600, respectively.
 
On June 4, 2012, a joint venture owned 60% by us and 40% by Fund Fourteen drew down on its loan facility with DVB SE in the amount of $17,500,000 at a fixed rate of 4.997% to partly finance the purchase of the AMC Ambassador. On June 27, 2018, we sold the AMC Ambassador to a third-party purchaser for $1,500,000. A portion of the sale proceeds was used to satisfy in full certain third-party claims against the vessel of $555,456, with the remaining portion used to settle our non-recourse debt obligations related to the vessel. As a result, we recognized a loss on sale of vessel of $2,045,055 and recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $4,764,270.

As part of amending the bareboat charters with the affiliates of Fugro, effective December 29, 2017, the indirect subsidiaries also amended the facility agreement with ABN AMRO, Rabobank and NIBC on April 6, 2018 to, among other things, increase the interest rate on the senior secured loans to share the economic benefits of the amended bareboat charters.

At June 30, 2018, we were in compliance with all covenants related to our non-recourse long-term debt.
 
Distributions
We, at our General Partner’s discretion, paid monthly distributions to each of our limited partners beginning with the first month after each such limited partner’s admission and continued to pay such distributions until the termination of our operating period, which was on May 31, 2017. We paid distributions of $67,003, $6,633,269 and $0 to our General Partner, limited partners and noncontrolling interests, respectively, during the 2018 Period. We expect that distributions paid during our liquidation period will vary, depending on the timing of the sale of our assets and/or the maturity of our investments, and our receipt of rental, finance and other income from our investments. 

Commitments and Contingencies and Off-Balance Sheet Transactions
Commitments and Contingencies
At the time we acquire or divest of our interest in Capital Assets, we may, under very limited circumstances, agree to indemnify the seller or buyer for specific contingent liabilities.  Our General Partner believes that any liability of ours that may arise as a result of any such indemnification obligations may or may not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial condition or results of operations taken as a whole. In addition, at times we may seek to enforce our rights under a personal guaranty in order to collect amounts from the guarantor that are owed to us by a defaulting borrower or lessee. Gain contingencies may arise from enforcement of such guaranty, but are not recognized until realizable.

In connection with certain debt obligations, we are required to maintain restricted cash balances with certain banks. At June 30, 2018, we had restricted cash of $4,409,501.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Transactions
None.

Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
 
Smaller reporting companies are not required to provide the information required by this item.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
 
Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures  
In connection with the preparation of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2018, our General Partner carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the management of our General Partner, including its Co-Chief Executive Officers and the Principal Financial and Accounting Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our General Partner’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Based on the foregoing evaluation, the Co-Chief Executive Officers and the Principal Financial and Accounting Officer concluded that our General Partner’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective.
 
In designing and evaluating our General Partner’s disclosure controls and procedures, our General Partner recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met.  Our General Partner’s disclosure controls and procedures have been designed to meet reasonable assurance standards. Disclosure controls and procedures cannot detect or prevent all error and fraud. Some inherent limitations in disclosure controls and procedures include costs of implementation, faulty decision-making, simple error and mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based, in part, upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all anticipated and unanticipated future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with established policies or procedures.  

Evaluation of internal control over financial reporting
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended June 30, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.


30


PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings  
In the ordinary course of conducting our business, we may be subject to certain claims, suits, and complaints filed against us.  In our General Partner’s opinion, the outcome of such matters, if any, will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.  We are not aware of any material legal proceedings that are currently pending against us or against any of our assets.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

Smaller reporting companies are not required to provide the information required by this item.

Item 2.  Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

We did not sell or repurchase any Interests during the three months ended June 30, 2018.
