An Extraordinary General Meeting of the shareholders of the Company (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”) was held, before notary, on April 11, 2016, at 11.00 a.m. (Luxembourg time), at the office of CACEIS Bank Luxembourg, 5 Allée Scheffer, L-2520 Luxembourg with the agenda as set out below. The quorum required by article 67-1 (2) of the Luxembourg Law of 10 August 1915 on commercial companies, as amended, has not been reached and therefore no resolutions could be adopted.
As consequence thereof, you are invited to attend the reconvened Meeting, which will be held, before notary , on June 30 2016, at 11.00 a.m. (Luxembourg time) at the office of CACEIS Bank Luxembourg, 5 Allée Scheffer, L-2520 Luxembourg with the following agenda:
1. Amendment of Article 11 - “Calculation of Net Asset Value per Share” by adding the following paragraphs after the first one:
“On any Valuation Day, the board of directors may determine to apply an alternative net asset value calculation method (to include such reasonable factors as they see fit) to the net asset value per share. This method of valuation is intended to pass the estimated costs of underlying investment activity of the Company to the active shareholders by adjusting the net asset value of the relevant share and thus to protect the Company’s long-term shareholders from costs associated with ongoing subscription and redemption activity.
This alternative net asset value calculation method may take account of trading spreads on the Company’s investments, the value of any duties and charges incurred as a result of trading and may include an allowance for market impact.
Where the board of directors, based on the prevailing market conditions and the level of subscriptions or redemptions requested by shareholders or potential shareholders in relation to the size of the relevant Sub-Fund, has determined for a particular Sub-Fund to apply an alternative net asset value calculation method, the Sub-Fund may be valued either on a bid or offer basis (which would include the factors referenced in the preceding paragraph).”
2. Amendment of Article 22 - “General Meetings of Shareholders of the Company”, paragraph 4, so as to read as follows:
“The annual general meeting shall be held in accordance with Luxembourg law at Luxembourg City at a place specified in the notice of meeting, on the third fourth Friday in of the month of May April at 10.00 a.m.”.
The above disposition will be effective as of the financial year beginning on January 1st, 2016.
3. Amendment of Article 18 – “Investment Policies and Restrictions”, paragraph 6, by replacing the term “Prospectus” by the terms “sales documents for the shares of the Company” for consistency purposes.
4. Amendment of Article 17 – “Delegation of Power” and Article 25 – “Merger” by replacing the term “SICAV” by the term “Company” for consistency purposes.
Shareholders are advised that, in accordance with Article 31 of the articles of association of the Company, (i) no quorum requirement will apply at the second call if the quorum is not reached at the first call and (ii) at least two thirds (2/3) of the votes validly cast of the shareholders present or represented.
