Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms used in this announcement shall have the same meaning as set out in the Circular.

Shareholders should refer to the Circular for full details of the Rollover Option and Cash Exit, including the expected timetable of events.

Details of the Rollover Option

The Rollover Option is being made available only to Shareholders who are Eligible Shareholders on the Election Date.

Shareholders are being provided with the opportunity to elect to exchange all or part of their Shares (subject to a Minimum Subscription of €500,000) in the Company on a NAV for NAV basis for new shares in one or both of two sub-funds of BG Eire ICAV, the key terms of which are summarised in the Circular.

The prospectus for BG Eire ICAV and supplements for each of the Rollover Funds, together with an Election Form and Application Forms for use in connection with the Rollover Option, are available to Eligible Shareholders at or upon request to the Investment Manager.

Shareholders wishing to elect to take part in the Rollover Option should refer to the section entitled “Action to be Taken by Shareholders” at paragraph 10 of Part I of the Circular for instructions concerning the election process. The election period for the Rollover Option is expected to close for Eligible Shareholders at Close of Business on 22 August 2024.

Participation in the Rollover Option is subject to the Terms and Conditions set out in Part II of the Circular, the Election Form and the Application Forms.

Cash Exit

Shareholders who make no election will by default remain Shareholders and have all of their Shares redeemed for cash pursuant to the Cash Exit. Therefore, Shareholders who wish to receive cash pursuant to the Cash Exit in respect of their entire holding of Shares should not complete or return an Election Form or an Application Form or arrange for a TTE Instruction to be submitted.

If a Shareholder elects to participate in the Rollover Option in respect of only part of their Shares, they will receive cash pursuant to the Cash Exit in respect of the remainder of their Shares.
