Share Conversion Facility
Under the articles of association of the Company, shareholders have the right to convert their Income shares into Growth shares and/or their Growth shares into Income shares once a year. The next conversion date was scheduled to be 20 October 2016.
Following the passing of the deadline for shareholders to submit conversion instructions on 23 September 2016, the Board announces that the total value of assets requested to be transferred from the Growth Portfolio (£210,191) and the Income Portfolio (£110,944) is significantly less than the specified minimum to be transferred for each Portfolio of £500,000 as set out in the 2016 Annual Report and Accounts. A significant minimum has to be set in order to justify the costs of the exercise. Accordingly the share conversion will not now proceed and no shares will be converted on 20 October 2016.
Shareholders who have submitted conversion instructions will now be notified.
The next scheduled share conversion will be in October 2017.
