Important notice to Shareholders of
Xtrackers II Global Aggregate Bond Swap UCITS ETF (the “Sub-Fund”)
3D-GBP Hedged (ISIN: LU0942970368)
(the “Share Classes”)
Luxembourg, 28 May 2021
The board of directors of the Company (the "Board of Directors") hereby informs the shareholders of the Sub-Fund (the "Shareholders") that it has resolved to not proceed with certain changes to the Share Classes of the Sub-Fund as previously communicated to registered Shareholders by way of notice on 22 February 2021.
Capitalised terms used in this notice shall have the same meaning ascribed to them in the current version of the prospectus of the Company (the “Prospectus”), unless the context otherwise requires.
On 22 February 2021, the Board of Directors issued a notice to Shareholders of the Sub-Fund (the “Original Notice”) that certain changes to the Share Classes of the Sub-Fund were to be carried out on a date between 31 March 2021 and 30 June 2021 (the "Effective Date") (such proposed changes referred to as the “Changes”). Full details of the Changes are described in the Original Notice, which is available online at www.xtrackers.com.
Notwithstanding the issue of the Original Notice, upon further consideration, the Board of Directors has considered that there may be a further restructure of the Sub-Fund and have therefore deemed that it would not be in the best interests of the Sub-Fund and its Shareholders to have two restructures in close succession and incur additional transaction costs. As such, the Board of Directors have instructed that the Changes shall not proceed as of the Effective Date. Shareholders will be notified with respect to any forthcoming restructure of the Sub-Fund.
This notice is for information purposes only. Shareholders are not required to take any action.
If you have any queries or if any of the above is not clear you should seek advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal advisor, accountant or other independent financial advisor.
Shareholders should also consult their own professional advisors as to the specific tax implications under the laws of the countries of their nationality, residence, domicile or incorporation.
Further information in relation to the decision may also be obtained from the legal entities mentioned under ‘Contact information’ below or by sending an email to Xtrackers@dws.com.
