COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT



For Immediate Release

30 September 2016


DWS VIETNAM FUND LIMITED


Re: Result of AGM

The Directors of DWS Vietnam Fund Limited (the "Company") announces the result of the Annual General Meeting, which was held earlier today.  Words and expressions defined in the circular to shareholders of the Company dated 2 September 2016 have the same meanings when used in this announcement unless the context requires otherwise.

All of the resolutions were duly passed, save for resolution 2 (the re-election of Jason Fitzgerald) and resolution 7 (to wind up the Company).

The total number of proxy votes lodged in relation to this special business considered at the AGM was as follows:

The Company is taking the necessary steps to change the Company's name and will make a further announcement once it is effective.  The Company's ISIN (KYG2886W1078) and SEDOL (B1FHXT2) remain the same. 

As resolution 6 was passed authorising and directing the Directors to take such steps as may be reasonably necessary to implement the Restructuring Proposal, the Company, with its advisers, will now prepare the documentation, and take such other steps, as are required to enable the Restructuring Proposal to become effective.  In particular, the Directors expect to send a circular to Shareholders in November 2016 containing the final details of the Restructuring Proposal and convening an extraordinary general meeting of the Company at which the resolutions required to enable the Restructuring Proposal to become effective will be proposed.  That circular will also explain the action Shareholders (and underlying Beneficial Owners) will need to take to make an Election in respect of the Continuation Option and/or Realisation Option
