7. FPA may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over the securities of the Issuer held by each of the Private Investment Funds as the investment adviser to and manager or general partner, as applicable, of each of the Private Investment Funds. In addition, Mr. J. Richard Atwood may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over the securities of the Issuer held by the Private Investment Funds as a Managing Partner of FPA. Mr. Steven T. Romick may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over the securities of the Issuer held by the Private Investment Funds as a Managing Partner of FPA. Mr. Brian A.

FPA and Messrs. Atwood, Romick, Selmo and Landecker may be deemed to have a pecuniary interest in a portion of the securities held directly by the Private Investment Funds due to FPA's right to receive performance-based allocations. In addition, Messrs. Romick, Selmo and Landecker may be deemed to have an indirect pecuniary interest in a portion of the securities held directly by FPA Global Opportunity and FPA Select due to their respective ownership interests in such Private Investment Funds and Messrs.
9. (Continued from footnote 8) Romick and Selmo may be deemed to have an indirect pecuniary interest in a portion of the securities held directly by FPA Value Partners due to their respective ownership interests in such Private Investment Fund. Each of FPA and Messrs. Atwood, Romick, Selmo and Landecker disclaims beneficial ownership of securities of the Issuer held directly by the Private Investment Funds except to the extent of their pecuniary interest therein, and this report shall not be deemed an admission that any of FPA or Messrs. Atwood, Romick, Selmo or Landecker is the beneficial owner of such securities for purposes of Section 16 or any other purpose.
10. Shares of common stock of the Issuer held directly by WLRS Fund I LLC ("WLRS Fund"), a limited liability company controlled by a third party but in which investment advisory clients of FPA are members and own a 99.9% economic interest. FPA may be deemed to share investment power over the securities of the Issuer held by WLRS Fund because FPA is the investment adviser to members of WLRS Fund, including FPA Crescent Fund, a series of FPA Funds Trust ("FPA Crescent Fund"), and such members have an approval right with respect to transfers of the securities of the Issuer held by WLRS Fund pursuant to the limited liability company operating agreement of WLRS Fund (the "LLC Agreement"). As a member of WLRS Fund, FPA Crescent Fund may also be deemed to share investment power over the securities of the Issuer held by WLRS Fund due to such approval right.
11. (Continued from footnote 10) Of the 1,481,699 shares of common stock of the Issuer held by WLRS Fund, 1,256,166 are designated Founder Shares and are subject to certain share price restrictions that were previously disclosed. All shares of common stock of the Issuer held by WLRS Fund are subject to certain restrictions on transfer detailed in that Shareholders' and Registration Rights Agreement, dated March 21, 2016, among WL Ross Holding Corp., WL Ross Sponsor LLC and Nexeo Holdco, LLC (the "Stockholders' Agreement"). Pursuant to such restrictions, without the prior written consent of TPG Global, LLC and WL Ross Sponsor LLC (collectively, the "Sponsors"), the shares of common stock of the Issuer held by WLRS Fund cannot be transferred during the first six months following June 9, 2016 (the "Lock-Up Period"), and then, subject to any permitted underwritten offerings pursuant to the Stockholders' Agreement and other permitted transfers,
12. (Continued from footnote 11) cannot be transferred through the earlier of 12 months following the expiration of the Lock-Up Period or such time as the Sponsors no longer hold 50% of their initial ownership of the Issuer's common stock. Pursuant to the LLC Agreement, at any time following the lapse of the transfer restrictions on the shares of common stock held by WLRS Fund, each member of WLRS Fund may elect by written notice to the Manager of WLRS Fund to receive a distribution of such unrestricted shares of common stock up to such member's pro rata portion of its respective membership percentage.
13. Shares of common stock of the Issuer held directly by FPA Crescent Fund. FPA is the investment advisor of FPA Crescent Fund and may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over shares of common stock of the Issuer held by FPA Crescent Fund. In addition, Mr. Atwood may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over shares of common stock of the Issuer held by FPA Crescent Fund as a Managing Partner of FPA. Mr. Romick may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over shares of common stock of the Issuer held by FPA Crescent Fund as a Portfolio Manager of FPA Crescent Fund and Managing Partner of FPA. Messrs. Selmo and Landecker may be deemed to share voting and/or investment power over shares of common stock of the Issuer held by FPA Crescent Fund as Portfolio Managers of FPA Crescent Fund and Partners of FPA.
14. (Continued from footnote 13) FPA only receives an asset-based management fee for serving as investment adviser to FPA Crescent Fund and therefore does not have any pecuniary interest in the securities of the Issuer held by FPA Crescent Fund. Of the 20,123,426 shares of common stock of the Issuer held by FPA Crescent Fund, 2,431,709 shares are designated Founder Shares and are subject to certain share price restrictions that were previously disclosed.
Remarks:
First Pacific Advisors, LLC ("FPA") may be deemed to exercise voting and/or investment power over securities of Nexeo Solutions, Inc. (the "Issuer") that are held directly by certain unaffiliated separately managed accounts (the "Managed Accounts") as FPA serves as investment adviser to such Managed Accounts. FPA only receives an asset-based management fee for serving as investment adviser to such Managed Accounts and therefore does not have any pecuniary interest in the securities of the Issuer held directly by such Managed Accounts. In addition, Messrs. J. Richard Atwood, Steven T. Romick, Brian A. Selmo and Mark Landecker do not have a pecuniary interest in the securities held by the Managed Accounts.
