db X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares Fund (ASHR) to Release Its Tax Reserve Back to the Fund

NEW YORK--()--Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) announced that tomorrow April 24, 2014, at market close, the db X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares Fund (NYSE ticker:ASHR) (the “Fund”) will release its reserve related to capital gains tax back to the Fund. This release will add $0.05522 per share to the Fund’s Net Asset Value (NAV).

Effective at market close on Thursday, April 24, the Fund will no longer reserve 10 percent of its realized and unrealized gains from its A-Shares investments to meet any potential withholding tax liability that may be imposed by the People’s Republic of China (“China”), except with respect to realized and unrealized gains from the Fund’s investments in A-Shares of “land-rich” enterprises, which are companies that have greater than 50% of their assets in land or real properties in China.

If China begins applying tax rules regarding the taxation of income from A-Shares investment to Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors and/or begins collecting capital gains taxes on such investments, the Fund could be subject to withholding tax liability. The impact of any such tax liability on the Fund’s return could be material.
