The Directors of DWS Vietnam Fund Limited (the "Company") would like to remind investors of the procedure that they need to follow in order to cast votes in respect of their beneficial holdings of shares in the Company at the annual general meeting of the Company to be held on 30 September 2016.  Investors should note the following:

·           The Company can only accept Forms of Proxy from registered holders of its issued Ordinary Shares.

·           The Company has only two registered holders of Ordinary Shares - Clearstream and Euroclear.   Accordingly, the Company can only accept Forms of Proxy from Clearstream and Euroclear.

·           All other investors in the Company are Beneficial OwnersForms of Proxy returned to DMS Corporate Services Ltd. by Beneficial Owners will not be valid and the Company will be required to disregard them.

·           In order to cast votes in respect of their beneficial holdings of Ordinary Shares, Beneficial Owners who have appointed a voting service provider (such as ISS - Institutional Shareholder Services Inc.) MUST instruct their voting service provider accordingly in accordance with their voting service provider's procedures.  Their voting service provider will then take the appropriate action to instruct Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) to vote on behalf of the relevant Beneficial Owner.  Any such Beneficial Owners who are in any doubt as to the action they need to take to cast votes in respect of their beneficial holdings of Ordinary Shares should contact their voting service provider.

·           In order to cast votes in respect of their beneficial holdings of Ordinary Shares, all other Beneficial Owners MUST instruct their wealth/investment manager, custodian, depository or other agent accordingly in accordance with their wealth/investment manager's, custodian's, depository's or other agent's procedures.  Their wealth/investment manager, custodian, depository or other agent will then take the appropriate action to instruct Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) to vote on behalf of the relevant Beneficial Owner.  Any such Beneficial Owners who are in any doubt as to the action they need to take to cast votes in respect of their beneficial holdings of Ordinary Shares should contact their wealth/investment manager, custodian, depository or other agent.

·           The Company will allow up to two representatives of a Beneficial Owner to attend the AGM in person IF they have been appointed as a proxy or corporate representative of Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) in respect of their beneficial holding of Ordinary Shares.

·           Beneficial Owners who wish to attend the AGM in person MUST contact their voting service provider, wealth/investment manager, custodian, depository or other agent so that can take the appropriate action to request Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) to appoint the relevant Beneficial Owner's representative(s) as a proxy or corporate representative of Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) in respect of their beneficial holding of Ordinary Shares.  Any Beneficial Owners who are in any doubt as to the action they need to take to be appointed as a proxy or corporate representative of Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) in respect of their beneficial holding of Ordinary Shares should contact their voting service provider, wealth/investment manager, custodian, depository or other agent.

 

Finally, the Board would like to remind Beneficial Owners that, to be valid, Forms of Proxy completed by Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate) must be received by DMS Corporate Services Ltd (acting as agent for the Company) by 10.00 a.m. on 29 September 2016.  Voting service providers, wealth/investment managers, custodians, depositories and other agents will have set earlier deadlines (typically at least several days in advance of the deadline for the return of Forms of Proxy) by which they will need to receive instructions from a Beneficial Owner to enable them to take the appropriate action to instruct Clearstream or Euroclear (as appropriate).  Accordingly, Beneficial Owners wishing to cast votes in respect of their beneficial holdings of Ordinary Shares at the AGM, or to appoint representatives to attend the AGM on their behalf, should contact their voting service provider, wealth/investment manager, custodian, depository or other agent as soon as possible.
