  • Management Contract & Fees:

    The basic fee should be the lower of: the basic fee as calculated under the current fee arrangements (that is, 1.0% p.a. of the net NAV of the Company, being the NAV less the aggregate of the value of the company's limited partnership Interest in Strategic Recovery Fund II and the amount of the Company's undrawn loan commitment to that fund from time to time) and 1.0% p.a. of the company's market capitalisation. The company's performance is measured over rolling three year periods ending on 30 June in each year, with the first Performance Period commencing on 01-Jul-08 and ending on 30-Jun-11. The company's performance will be measured by comparing the NAV total return per Share over a Performance Period against the total return performance of the FTSE SmallCap (ex. Investment Companies) Index, being the index against which the Board has historically compared the company's investment performance. If the NAV total return per Share (calculated before any accrual for any performance fee to be paid in respect of the relevant Proposed Performance Period) at the end of the relevant Proposed Performance Period exceeds both: (i) the NAV per Share at the beginning of the relevant Proposed Performance Period as adjusted by the aggregate amount of (a) the total return on the FTSE SmallCap (ex. Investment Companies) Index (expressed as a percentage) and (b) 2.0% p.a. over the relevant Proposed Performance Period and (ii) the High Watermark (which, until exceeded at the end of a Proposed Performance Period in respect of which the Investment Manager earns a performance fee, will remain at 118.82p) the Investment Manager will be entitled to 15% of the excess over the higher of the Benchmark NAV per Share and the High Watermark and payment of a performance fee that has been earned will be deferred to the extent that the amount payable exceeds 1.75% p.a. of the company's NAV at the end of the relevant Proposed Performance Period (amounts deferred will be payable when, and to the extent that, following any later Proposed Performance Period(s) with respect to which a performance fee is payable, it is possible to pay the deferred amounts without causing that cap to be exceeded or the relevant NAV total return per Share to fall below the relevant Benchmark NAV per Share and the relevant High Watermark).
