  • Management Contract & Fees:

    The management agreement may be terminated by either party on 12 months notice given at any time thereafter. The Manager also provides secretarial and administrative services to the Company. The Manager is entitled to an annual fee equal to 2.0% p.a. of the NA of the Company. The performance fee scheme requires the NAV as at the end of each financial period to have grown over that financial period by more than an amount equal to the average base rate of The Royal Bank of Scotland plc plus 2% during the relevant financial period. If the NAV has exceeded this target, then 5% of the excess will be payable to the manager (in cash or shares at the discretion of the Board), subject to a maximum payment in respect of any financial period of 1% of the aggregate NAV as at the Accounting Date. The NAV will be adjusted to take into account capital (but not revenue) dividends paid during the relevant financial period. If the target is not achieved in any financial period then the deficit must be made up prior to any subsequent performance incentive payment to the Manager. If the payment to the Manager would have exceeded the maximum permitted payment in any one financial period, then that sum would be carried forward to be paid in future years or offset against subsequent shortfalls of the target return.
