Reissue: Statement re Cyrun Offer - Board Recom...


SVM UK Active Fund PLC (the "Company")

RIS Announcement

Cyrun Offer - Board recommendation

16 May 2011

The Board notes the announcement made earlier today by one of the Company's
larger shareholders that it has sold its entire holding in the Company's
shares. The Board understands that these shares have been purchased by Cyrun.
The Board is also aware that other of the Company's larger shareholders are
likely to accept or have accepted the Cyrun Offer. Accordingly, the Board
believes that it is likely that Cyrun will achieve its acceptance condition of
50% of the Company's issued shares.


The Board regrettably makes this recommendation because with Cyrun likely to
obtain control, there is now considerable uncertainty over the future direction
and management of the Company for any Shareholders remaining invested in the

The Cyrun Offer is 94.25% of FAV (Formula Asset Value), subject to a minimum
price of 191.2p per Share.

The Board's position

The Board has attempted to find means of returning greater value to
Shareholders than the 5.75% discount to FAV and the minimum price under the
Cyrun Offer and to allow continuity of investment management by SVM Asset
Management Ltd through a rollover into the SVM UK Growth Fund. Cyrun has made
clear that it would use its votes to block any such reconstruction or any
liquidation proposal. During the offer period, Cyrun has revised its offer by
increasing the minimum price per share from 176p to 191.2p.

The Board believes that Cyrun's current ownership of over 42% of the Company's
shares, together with acceptances of the Offer that have been or are likely to
be received, give Cyrun effective control of the Company. The Board has,
therefore, concluded that it has no alternative but to recommend that all
Shareholders who have not already accepted the Cyrun Offer do so immediately.

General Meeting

In light of the circumstances described above, the General Meeting convened for
20 May 2011 will be postponed indefinitely.
