We refer to the notice published on 16 January 2023 informing Shareholders that the board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) had decided to proceed with a split of the shares of a certain share class of the Sub-Fund (the “Share Split”).
Following further analysis of the Share Split by the Management Company, with the support of a range of stakeholders and experts, the Board of Directors has come to the conclusion that the Share Split is no longer in the best interests of Shareholders, considering the operational risks that implementation of the Share Split would entail compared to the diminishing expected benefits. Therefore, Shareholders are hereby informed that the Board of Directors has decided not to proceed with the Share Split.
Capitalised terms not defined herein shall have the meaning given to them in the most recent version of the prospectus of the Company (the “Prospectus”), unless the context otherwise requires.
This notice is for information purposes only. Shareholders are not required to take any action.
Shareholders who have any queries or to whom any of the above is not clear should seek advice from their stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant or other independent financial advisor.
