Horizon Kinetics Asset Management LLC (“Horizon”) is the investment adviser to the RENN Fund, Inc.

The Fund seeks to provide shareholders with above-market rates of return through capital appreciation and income through investments in a wide variety of financial instruments, including but not limited to common stocks, fixed income securities including convertible and non-convertible debt securities or loans, distressed debt, warrants and preferred stock, exchange traded funds and exchange traded notes, and other instruments and securities which may or may not be listed on a regulated exchange. The Fund may also engage in short sales of stocks, exchange traded funds and exchange traded notes, including both leveraged and unleveraged. The Fund invests in companies which Horizon believes are undervalued and which have the potential to achieve a high rate of return.

The Fund executes its investment strategy by regarding investments as fractional ownership in the underlying companies’ assets. This allows the Fund to attempt to achieve its investment objective by acting as a classic value investor seeking high returns on equity, an intrinsic characteristic of the investment, not a reappraisal of a company’s stock value by the market, an external factor.
