9 October 2008

Lehman Brothers Private Equity Partners Limited ("LBPE" or "the
Company") today
announced the release of its September 2008 Monthly Report and
preliminary financial
results for the quarter ending 30 September 2008.

As of 30 September 2008, the unaudited NAV per share was $10.55. This
represents a
decrease of 2.4% compared to the unaudited 31 August 2008 NAV per
share of $10.81 and
an increase of 1.7% compared to the audited 31 December 2007 NAV per
share of $10.37.

During September, LBPE's portfolio value decreased mainly as a result
of the severe
downward pressure facing the public equity and credit markets. In
addition to negative markto-
market adjustments on publicly traded securities and credit-related
fund investments, the
portfolio experienced unrealized depreciation due to negative foreign
exchange adjustments.

These decreases in value were offset by a small net increase in the
value of certain fund
