AIM

Schedule 1 - CQS Rig Finance

AIM
29 October 2007


 ANNOUNCEMENT TO BE MADE BY THE AIM APPLICANT PRIOR TO ADMISSION IN ACCORDANCE WITH RULE 2 OF THE AIM RULES FOR
                                             COMPANIES ('AIM RULES')

COMPANY NAME:


CQS Rig Finance Fund Limited ('the Company')


COMPANY REGISTERED OFFICE ADDRESS AND IF DIFFERENT, COMPANY TRADING ADDRESS (INCLUDING POSTCODES):


Dorey Court
Admiral Park
St. Peter Port
Guernsey


COUNTRY OF INCORPORATION:


Guernsey


COMPANY WEBSITE ADDRESS CONTAINING ALL INFORMATION REQUIRED BY AIM RULE 26:


www.cqsrigfinance.com


COMPANY BUSINESS (INCLUDING MAIN COUNTRY OF OPERATION) OR, IN THE CASE OF AN INVESTING COMPANY, DETAILS OF ITS
INVESTING STRATEGY).  IF THE ADMISSION IS SOUGHT AS A RESULT OF A REVERSE TAKE-OVER UNDER RULE 14, THIS SHOULD BE
STATED:


The Company is a closed-ended limited liability investment company that was registered and incorporated in
Guernsey on 8 November 2006. The Company invests primarily in debt instruments issued to finance the
construction, modification and/or refurbishment of rigs and other infrastructure and/or equipment used for the
offshore exploration and production of oil and natural gas.

The Company does not have a fixed life but, under the Articles of Association, Shareholders will be given the
opportunity to vote on the continuation of the Company at the annual general meeting to be held in 2014.



The Company's investment objective is to provide Shareholders with an attractive total return, primarily through
income with scope for capital appreciation. The Company targets, in the absence of unforeseen circumstances, an
annualised gross dividend yield of 8 per cent. of the net asset value of the Company at the start of each
financial year. The Company intends to pay quarterly dividends in respect of each period ending 31 March, 30
June, 30 September and 31 December.

The investment adviser seeks to achieve the investment objective of the Company by sourcing and trading a
portfolio of secured debt instruments using fundamental credit and industry analysis to identify instruments with
an attractive risk-adjusted yield. Such debt instruments are expected to be primarily issued to finance the
construction, modification and/or refurbishment of rigs and other infrastructure and/or equipment used for the
offshore exploration and production of oil and natural gas.

The Company seeks, on a global basis, to capture on its investments attractive risk-adjusted yields and potential
capital appreciation arising from possible corporate activity, including but not limited to, refinancing and
industry consolidation. Returns are expected to be enhanced through gearing the Company's investment portfolio by
approximately 100 per cent. although gearing up to 150 per cent. is permitted.



The Company seeks to construct its investment portfolio using a range of securities, derivatives and other
agreements including but not limited to positions in bonds, floating rate securities, sovereign bonds,
asset-backed securities, loans, repurchase agreements, interest rate and credit default swaps and swaptions,
total return swaps, interest rate futures and options, bond futures and options, currency swaps, foreign exchange
contracts, futures and options and other options and derivatives.

The portfolio includes exposure, either directly or synthetically using derivatives, to debt instruments that are
secured. Such instruments may be denominated in any currency and the Company will have flexibility to trade in
any market or instrument using various techniques to achieve its stated return objectives. The Company may trade
both rated and unrated debt instruments although it expects, in most cases, that such instruments will not be
rated by a recognised rating agency. The Company may also trade listed and unlisted securities.



Although the Company has the ability to make investments on a global basis, the breakdown of the existing
portfolio by country of rig construction shows that over half of the Company's investments have been made in
Singapore and China, with further investments on a smaller scale in Europe, the Middle East and the United
States.



Derivatives may be used for hedging or investment purposes. The Company may execute trades synthetically using
derivatives including, but not limited to, total return swaps referencing the secured debt instruments selected
for its investment portfolio. The Company may also retain amounts in cash, or cash equivalents, pending
reinvestment if this is considered appropriate to the achievement of its investment objective.

It is expected that investments will often be held through to maturity (or earlier redemption/repayment by the
issuer/borrower), although the investment adviser may trade investments depending on the prevailing market
conditions at any time. The performance of such investments is therefore expected to be driven primarily by the
performance of the assets securing the investments.



CQS Cayman Limited Partnership has been appointed investment manager and will be responsible for advising the
Company on the overall management of the Company's investments and for managing the Company's cash and
investments in fixed income instruments in accordance with the Company's investment objective and policy (subject
to the overall control and supervision of the Board). CQS Cayman Limited Partnership is a limited partnership
registered in the Cayman Islands. As at 1 October 2007 it had approximately US$9.3 billion in funds under
management.



The investment manager has retained CQS Investment Management Limited as investment adviser with responsibility
for discretionary management of the investment portfolio.
