Proposed Plan for the Distribution of the Disgorgement Fund

Pursuant to the Order Instituting Proceedings, Making Findings, and Imposing a Cease-and-Desist Order entered by the Commission on January 3, 2002 against Financial Asset Management, Inc. ("FAM"), James B. Rader and Debra L. Kennedy, FAM paid disgorgement in the amount of $25,000 to the Commission on January 15, 2002. The disgorgement arose out of FAM's conduct in causing securities law violations committed by Michael W. Berger, the Manhattan Investment Fund, Ltd. ("the Fund") and Manhattan Capital Management, Inc.

The disgorged funds ($25,000) will be paid by the Commission to the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Trustee for the Manhattan Investment Fund, Ltd., (Helen Gredd, Esq., c/o Lankler, Siffert & Wohl, 500 Fifth Avenue, 33>rd Floor, New York, New York 10110-3398, telephone (212) 921-8399, fax (212) 764-3701), for further distribution to the Fund's creditors in accordance with the provisions of the United States Bankruptcy Code.
