The Board notes the proposed changes to the FCA rules relating to the restrictions on the retail distribution of unregulated collective investment schemes and close substitutes which will come into effect on 1 January 2014.


The Board has been advised that the Company's shares should not fall to be classified as non-mainstream pooled investments. The Board conducts the Company's affairs, and intends to continue to conduct its affairs, in such a way that the Company would be an Investment Trust if it was resident in the UK. Having taken legal advice, the Board believes that, on that basis, the Company's shares would be excluded securities under these new rules and will therefore be excluded from the FCA's restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products.
