The General Partner shall make adjustments to this Agreement, including with respect to the distributions to the Limited Partners, as it deems necessary to reflect the admission of new Limited Partners. No additional Limited Partner shall be admitted to the Partnership if the admission of such Limited Partner would cause a dissolution of the Partnership under the Partnership Act, cause the Partnership assets to be deemed to be “plan assets” for purposes of the U.S. Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended from time to time, cause the Partnership to be deemed to be an “investment company” for purposes of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended from time to time, or would materially violate, or cause the Partnership materially to violate, any material applicable law or regulation, including any applicable U.S. federal or state securities laws.
