In accordance with the Company's investment objective for the Cell, the net proceeds at launch and at the subsequent issue of Shares were invested in an index derivative contract (the "Contract") with BNP Paribas, the Counterparty.  Under the terms of the Contract the Company contracted to receive on each dividend payment date an amount initially equal to 2 pence or cents per Share, which will be applied by the Company in funding the payment of dividends to shareholders, and at redemption an amount equal to the net asset value of the underlying portfolio.

 

Full details of the calculation of the investment return, the Contract and the collateral arrangements in favour of the Company for the account of the Cell are disclosed in the Cell's Summary and Securities Note, a copy of which is available from the Administrator and from the Distributor.

Investment Objective

The BNP Paribas European Shield is a six-year fund returning 171.25p per share at maturity provided that, at maturity, the DJ Euro Stoxx 50 Index is at or above its initial level of 3,865.42.  This is equivalent to an annualised return of 8.5% on the application price of 105p.  The redemption value per share is reduced linearly from 171.25p to 100p per share as the index falls from 100% to 85% of its initial level.  The redemption value per share of 100p is protected unless the index falls by 50% from its initial level at any point over the six year life.  If downside is triggered and the index fails to recover to 85% of the initial level, investors will participate in index tracking plus 15p per share.

 

The level of the Index recorded at launch and as of 30 April 2012, together with the level of the Index at maturity required to return a redemption value per share of 171.25 pence, the Index level which, if breached at any time, results in the potential loss of capital and the lowest observed level of the Index to date are set out in the table below.

Investment Objective

This 6-year maturity fund produces absolute returns based on the divergence, rather than the direction, of stock performance.  The fund focuses on the share components of the Dow Jones Global Titans Index, an index that includes the world's 50 largest multinational companies. On each anniversary of launch the fund's portfolio is, retrospectively, made up of the shares that have beaten the index over the previous year in equal weightings.     

 

 

The fund's return for each year equals the amount by which this portfolio's annualised performance beats the index less a hurdle rate of 5%.

 

The level of the Index recorded at launch and as of 30 April 2012 is set out in the table below.

Investment Objective

BNP Paribas US High Income ("USH" for Class A and "USHD" for Class B) is a six-year investment aiming to provide shareholders with a stable stream of quarterly dividend distributions based on the dividend income of a notional portfolio of shares selected from the S&P 100 Index, supplemented by premiums for notional call options written on those shares.  In addition, a purchase of portfolio insurance in the form of a put option linked to the S&P 100 Index, with a term and maturity matching the term of the Shares, aims to reduce the risk of capital loss.

 

BNP Paribas US High Income launched on 26 October 2006 with an initial NAV of 99 pence ($0.99 for class B).  On this date (a) the portfolio of shares was selected and purchased (b) the corresponding 3-month call options were sold with an average strike price of 104.3% of the value of the shares (c) the portfolio insurance was acquired.  This takes the form of a six-year put option on the S&P 100 with a strike level of 645.42.

Investment Overview

The Enhanced Property Recovery Fund allows investors to benefit from a possible recovery in the listed property market with an enhanced market timing mechanism. At maturity, if the FTSE EPRA European Index (Bloomberg code: EPRA Index) (the "Index") finishes above its initial level, the fund will pay the greater of either 170% or the enhanced performance of the Index. If the Index closes below the initial level, the Fund will track the Index.

Investment Performance

Between launch on 13 March 2008 and close on 30 April 2012 the NAV had fallen by 35.74%.  Over this period the EPRA Index had fallen by 35.1%. The Fund's performance is driven primarily by sensitivity of the NAV to movements in the underlying Index, which is nearly one for one. The Fund recorded its lowest observation of 760.83 on the 13 March 2009. The enhanced market timing mechanism of this Fund means that if the Index was to recover to maturity, this figure would be used as the reference for which to calculate final performance.

Harewood Structured Investment PCC Limited (the "Company")

Notes to the Financial Statements

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

1          SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The principal accounting policies adopted by the Company and applied in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below.  These policies have been consistently applied to all periods presented, unless otherwise stated in the following text.

 

(a)        Basis of preparation

The financial statements have been prepared in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").  The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified for the measurement at fair value of financial instruments held at fair value through profit or loss.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates.  It also requires the Board of directors to exercise judgement in the process of applying the Company's accounting policies.  The areas involving a high degree of judgement or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements are disclosed in Note 2.

 

Changes in accounting policy and disclosures:

 

No new Standards or Interpretations have been adopted in the current period.

 

The following Standards or Interpretations have been issued by the IASB but not yet adopted by the Company.

 

IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures - Amendments relating to the offsetting of assets and liabilities effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013 and interim periods within those periods.

 

IFRS 7 Financial Instruments:  Disclosures - Deferral of mandatory effective date of IFRS 9 and amendments to transition disclosures effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015.

 

IFRS 9 Financial Instruments:  Deferral of mandatory effective date of IFRS 9 and amendments to transition disclosures effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015.

 

IFRS 13 Fair value measurement - Original issue effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013.

 

IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements - Amendments to revise the way other comprehensive income is presented effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 July 2012.

 

IAS 32 Financial Instruments:  Presentation - Amendments relating to the offsetting of assets and liabilities effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014.

 

The directors have considered the above and are of the opinion that the above Standards and Interpretations are not expected to have an impact on the Company's financial statements except for the presentation of additional disclosures and changes to the presentation of components of the financial statements.  These items will be applied in the first financial period for which they are required.

 



Harewood Structured Investment PCC Limited (the "Company")

Notes to the Financial Statements (continued)

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

1          SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

(b)        Recognition of expenses and related income

In prior periods, expenses borne by BNP Paribas SA on behalf of the Company and income received in order to pay Company expenses had not been included in the Statement of Comprehensive Income.  Additionally the cash at bank relating to the excess of income received from BNP Paribas SA over expenses paid out had not been included in the Statement of Financial Position. The expenses were instead detailed in note 7 Related Party Transactions.

 

The directors are of the opinion that the expenses, income and cash reserve detailed above should be included in the financial statements of the Company, as this more accurately represents the position of the Company.  In light of this change, the expenses and income have been detailed in the Statement of Comprehensive Income and the cash reserve built up by the excess of income over expenses has been allocated to the holders of Management shares in the Statement of Financial position.

 

The directors do not feel that restatement of the prior period is required due to the amount being immaterial and it not meeting the definition of a prior period adjustment under IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors.  The cash reserve brought forward from previous periods is therefore included in income received from the Counterparty in relation to operating expenses.

 

Pursuant to the terms of an Engagement Letter between the Company and BNP Paribas SA, all expenses are borne by BNP Paribas SA, therefore any cash at bank relating to the excess of income is due to BNP Paribas SA as holder of the Management shares of the Company and is not due to the holders of Preference Shares.

 

 

(c)        Functional and presentation currency

Items included in the Company's financial statements are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which it operates (the "functional currency").  This is pounds sterling, which reflects the Company's primary activity of investing in sterling-denominated derivative transactions.  The Company has adopted pounds sterling as its presentation currency as the Company is listed on the Channel Islands Stock Exchange and the majority of its registered shareholders are domiciled in the United Kingdom.  Up until the maturity of the Cell BNP Paribas Agribusiness in February 2011, there was only one Cell which was not listed on the Channel Islands Stock Exchange, instead being listed on the Budapest Stock Exchange.  Whilst shareholders of this cell were not exposed to movements in the HUF/Sterling Exchange rate, the previously reported value of this cell in the financial statements was exposed to such movements, as the aggregated financial statements are prepared in the functional currency.

 

 

(d)        Transactions and balances

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions.  Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at period-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income.  Translation differences on non-monetary financial assets and liabilities such as equities at fair value through profit or loss are recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income within net movement in unrealised gains/(losses)  on investments.



Harewood Structured Investment PCC Limited (the "Company")

Notes to the Financial Statements (continued)

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

1          SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

(e)        Taxation

The Company has been granted exemption from Guernsey Income Tax under the Income Tax (Exempt Bodies) (Guernsey) Ordinance, 1989 and is charged an annual fee of £600.  Dividend income is recognised on a gross basis, including withholding tax, if any.

 

(f)         Expenses

All expenses are accounted for on an accruals basis and accounted for in the Statement of Comprehensive Income.  As described in note 1 (b) all expenses are borne by BNP Paribas SA pursuant to the terms of an Engagement Letter between the Company and BNP Paribas SA.  The ongoing expenses for the period under review are shown in detail in note 7 to the financial statements.

 

(g)        Debt issue costs

Pursuant to the placing and offer for subscription of Shares in the Enhanced Global Asset Allocation Cell ("EGAA") the Initial Cell Expenses incurred (as defined in EGAA's Supplemental Memorandum) amounted to £297,509.  Because the Preference Shares in EGAA were redeemable on 17 March 2011, they were required to be classified as debt instruments under IAS 32.  Consequently, issue costs were required to be amortised over the life of the instrument.

 

(h)        Cash and cash equivalents

At the reporting date cash and cash equivalents comprise cash at bank.  As detailed in note 1(b), all expenses of the Company are borne by BNP Paribas SA, with income being received from BNP Paribas SA for the payment of Company expenses.  Any excess of income received from BNP Paribas SA for payment of expenses is accounted for separately as this is due to the holder of Management shares. 

 

All income received to Preference Shares is distributed to shareholders in the relevant cells as dividends.

 

(i)         Income recognition

Dividend income is recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income when the relevant cell's right to receive the dividend has been established, normally being the ex-dividend date.  Dividend income is recognised on a gross basis, including withholding tax, if any.

 

Income received from BNP Paribas SA is recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income on an accruals basis.

 

(j)         Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss

 

All investments and financial instruments are classified as "at fair value through profit or loss".  Investments are initially recognised at cost, being the fair value of the consideration given, including transaction costs associated with the investment.  After initial recognition, investments are measured at fair value, with unrealised gains and losses on investments being recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income.

 

The Company seeks to achieve the investment objective of each cell by entering into a contract with BNP Paribas (referred to herein as the "Counterparty").  Each contract is substantially in the form of an ISDA Master Agreement as supplemented by a transaction confirmation.

 

 



Harewood Structured Investment PCC Limited (the "Company")

Notes to the Financial Statements (continued)

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

1          SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

(j)         Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss (continued)

In respect of each contract, within BNP Paribas Group (the "Group"), the Market and Liquidity Risk department is responsible for the day-to-day risk monitoring and contributes to the control of the economic fair value of the Group's trading books.  This risk function department is separate and independent from the Trading and Sales departments.

 

The Market and Liquidity Risk department reviews the consistency of the non-observable market parameters by comparing and reconciling on a monthly basis several external data sources, including Bloomberg, Reuters, Markit/Totem and 10X.

 

This department is also responsible for the validation and control of any valuation models.

 

(k)        Loss per Share

The loss per Share is based on the decrease in net assets attributable to Preference shareholders from operations of the Company for the period of £14,404,903 (Apr 2011: £9,966,760 gain) and on 648,829,338 (Apr 2011: 812,570,070) shares, being the weighted average number of shares in issue during the period.  There were no dilutive instruments in issue during the period.

 

(l)         Trade date accounting

All "regular way" purchases and sales of financial assets are recognised on the "trade date" i.e. the date that the entity commits to purchase or sell the asset.  Regular way purchases or sales of financial assets that require delivery of the asset within the time frame generally established by the regulation or convention in the market place.

 

(m)       Distributions payable to holders of redeemable shares

Proposed distributions to holders of redeemable shares are recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income when they are declared by the Board of directors.  The distribution on these redeemable shares is recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income as finance cost.

 

(n)        Going concern

After making enquiries, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.  The directors believe the Company is well placed to manage its business risks successfully despite the current economic climate.  Accordingly, the directors have adopted the going concern basis in preparing the financial information.

Notes to the Financial Statements (continued)

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

2          CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS

 

Management make critical accounting estimates and judgements concerning the future.  The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results.  The estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the financial period are outlined below:

 

(a)        Fair value of derivative financial instruments

The Company holds investments which are tailored to meet the Company's respective needs for each cell.  As the investments are not traded in an active market, the fair value of such instruments is determined by using valuation techniques.  The fair value is calculated weekly and as at each month end by the Counterparty.  As at the reporting date, an independent check of the valuations of the investments is performed by Future Value Consultants Limited (the "Calculation Agent"), an independent third party.  The Calculation Agent uses a variety of methods and makes assumptions that are based on market conditions existing at the reporting date.  Valuation techniques used include the use of comparable recent arm's length transactions (where available), discounted cash flow analysis, option pricing models and other valuation techniques commonly used by market participants.  These techniques are periodically reviewed by experienced personnel at the Calculation Agent.

 

Models use observable data, to the extent practicable.  However, areas such as credit risk (both own and counterparty), volatilities, capital risk and correlations require management to make estimates.  Changes in assumptions about these factors could affect the reported fair value of financial instruments.

IFRS 7 requires fair value measurements to be disclosed by the source of inputs, using the following three-level hierarchy:

 

* Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1)

 

* Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (as prices) or indirectly (derived from prices) (Level 2).

 

* Inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs) (Level 3).

 

The financial assets held by the Company have been classified as Level 2.  This is in accordance with the fair value hierarchy.

 

There have been no transfers between Level 2 and Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy during the period under review.

6          FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES

 

The Company's activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including interest rate risk and market price risk), credit risk, liquidity risk, capital risk and foreign exchange risk.

 

The Company's overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the Company's financial performance.  The Company uses derivative financial instruments to moderate certain risk exposures.

 

(a)        Interest Rate Risk

The Company is not directly exposed to cash flow interest rate risk.  Changes in interest rates may affect the performance of the swap contracts in which each cell is invested.  The Board and the Investment Manager monitor, but cannot control, interest rate risk.

 



Harewood Structured Investment PCC Limited (the "Company")

Notes to the Financial Statements (continued)

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

6          FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES (continued)

 

(b)        Market Price Risk

Market price risk arises mainly from uncertainty about future prices of financial instruments held.  It represents the potential loss the Company might suffer through holding market positions in the face of price movements.  The Investment Manager actively monitors market prices and reports to the Board as to the appropriateness of the prices used for valuation purposes.  On a periodic basis independent valuations of the Company's investments are obtained from the Calculation Agent.  A list of investments held by the Company is shown in the Schedule of Investments on pages 68 to 70.

 

The Investment Manager also monitors on a monthly basis the market price risk of each Cell's underlying financial assets and liabilities using statistical measures, such as Delta.  Delta is the percentage change in price of a derivative in relation to a 1% change in the price of the underlying security, index or rate.  As there is no secondary market for the Company's investments, the Board cannot directly monitor nor control market price risk.

 

Price sensitivity

If market prices as at 30 April 2012 / 31 October 2011 had been 10 per cent higher / lower, and assuming these values were to remain unchanged through to the end of the life of the Cells, with all other variables held constant, the increase / decrease in net assets attributable to holders of Cell Shares on the Redemption Date would have been as stated below, arising due to the increase / decrease in the fair value of the financial assets at fair value through profit or loss.

6          FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES (continued)

 

(c)        Credit Risk

Credit risk is the risk that an issuer or counterparty will be unable or unwilling to meet a commitment that it has entered into with the Company.  At the date of this report the Counterparty was rated AA- by Standard & Poor's for credit purposes.

 

Investors should be aware that repayment by the Company at the relevant redemption date of the redemption proceeds due to shareholders will only be performed if the Counterparty satisfies its obligations under the relevant contract to repay to the Company any amount due.  Under the terms of the Credit Support Deeds between the Company and the Counterparty, the Counterparty is required to deliver varying amounts of collateral to an escrow account held in favour of the Company.

 

Under the terms of credit support deeds entered into between the Counterparty and the Company acting for and on behalf of each cell, the Counterparty is required to post collateral in the form of AAA rated G7 government bonds in favour of the Company acting for and on behalf of each cell, such collateral being valued on a weekly basis and, if the value of the collateral is less than the value calculated as specified below (the "Credit Support Amount"), the Counterparty will provide additional collateral to increase the aggregate value to at least the Credit Support Amount.  Where there is an event of default in respect of the Counterparty under the swap confirmation, the Company will be entitled to enforce its security over the collateral.

 

Due to the collateral being monitored on a weekly basis (as detailed above), there is a risk due to timing, that the amount posted to collateral will be less than the Credit Support Amount.

 

The Credit Support Amount is the lesser of (a) 100% of the net asset value of the relevant cell and (b) the total of the Applicable Percentage of such net asset value plus 10% of such net asset value (where the "Applicable Percentage" is calculated so as to reflect the percentage of shares in the relevant cell held at the relevant time by shareholders other than BNP Paribas Arbitrage SNC).

 

The most significant concentration of credit risk for the Company is that the Counterparty will be unable to satisfy its obligations under the relevant contract to repay to the Company any amount due.  The maximum credit risk exposure at the reporting date is therefore considered to be the valuation of the investments at this date, being £456,107,679.

 

The Investment Manager and Administrator monitor collateral posted on a weekly basis and report to the Board quarterly on the Investment Counterparty's compliance with the relevant Credit Support Deeds.  The Investment Manager and Administrator have also undertaken to report to the Board immediately if there is a breach of compliance with the terms of the relevant Credit Support Deeds.

 

The Board monitors, but cannot control, credit risk.

 

(d)        Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in realising assets or otherwise raising funds to meet financial commitments and obligations to shareholders on redemption of their shares of a cell.  The only financial commitments of the Company are to meet ongoing expenses and these are met out of monies provided to the Company's Administrator by BNP Paribas SA.

Notes to the Financial Statements (continued)

for the period ended 30 April 2012

 

6          FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES (continued)

 

(d)        Liquidity Risk (continued)

There is a further liquidity risk in respect of the redemption of shares, the dates of which are set out in note 6 (g) (ii).

 

As the investments are not traded in an active market, the Company may not be able to liquidate quickly its investments in these instruments at an amount close to their fair value to meet its liquidity requirements or to respond to specific events such as deterioration in the credit worthiness of the Counterparty.

6          FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES (continued)

 

(e)        Capital Risk

The Company has an unlimited life but the Protected Cell Shares for each cell have a fixed redemption date.

 

The Board of directors believes the current capital structure to be sufficient in meeting the capital requirements of the Company.

 

All expenses are borne by BNP Paribas SA and redemption proceeds are limited to the amounts received, if any, on the maturity or early termination of the relevant investment contract between the Company and the Counterparty.

 

Potential losses to shareholders are mitigated by the returns stipulated in the swap agreement with the Counterparty as described in note 6(h) and the collateral arrangements which are set out in note 6 (i).

 

(f)         Foreign Exchange Risk

The carrying amounts of the Company's foreign currency denominated financial assets at the reporting date are as follows:

 


Period ended


Year ended


30 April 2012


31 October 2011


GBP


GBP









US Dollar

45,939,976


48,691,298

 

As subscription, redemption and dividend payments in respect of all cells other than US High Income are made in the same functional currency, none of the cells other than US High Income is exposed to foreign exchange risk.  Subscription and redemption payments in respect of Class B US High Income are made in US Dollars, but dividends are paid in the Sterling equivalent of a fixed US Dollar amount, unless the relevant shareholder elects to receive their dividends in US Dollars.  As the currency in which these dividends are paid is selected at the option of the shareholder and may be paid in the functional currency, the directors do not consider that the Company acting on behalf of US High Income is exposed to material foreign exchange risk.

Each contract entered into between the Counterparty and the Company acting for and on behalf of each cell has been entered into upon terms which allow such contracts to be terminated, inter alia, in the following circumstances:

 

(a)  by the Company if the Counterparty fails to make a payment under the relevant contract (subject to a grace period of three local business days) or makes a representation which is incorrect or misleading in any material respect or fails to comply with its related obligations;

 

(b)  (b)  by the Counterparty if the Company fails to make a payment it is required to pay under the relevant contract (subject to the grace period mentioned above); and

 

(c)  by either the Counterparty or the Company if the other party is dissolved, becomes insolvent or is unable to pay its debts as they become due or on the occurrence of an illegality or the imposition on payments under the Contract of a withholding which the Company or the Counterparty, as the case may be, is unable to gross-up.

(iii) Early Settlement Options relating to the derivative contracts (continued)

 

It is anticipated that, on early termination of a Contract, a termination payment would become due to the Company equal to the aggregate net asset value of the relevant Contract at the date of such termination.  The directors may reinvest such proceeds as they see fit in investments which in the opinion of the directors replicate as nearly as practicable the investment characteristics of the contract so terminated and so that the proceeds are invested, as nearly as practicable, in accordance with the Company's stated investment objective for the relevant cell.

 

Even if recovered by the Company, any early redemption amount in respect of the shares of the relevant cell may result in a lower return than would have been the case if the contract had continued and been performed up to its maturity date.

 

In the event that the directors determine that the investment characteristics of the Contract cannot be replicated then the directors will notify Shareholders of the relevant cell of such circumstances, the relevant early redemption amount and the relevant early redemption date.

 

If the Counterparty fails to top up the collateral such that it is equal to at least the Specified Percentage (as set out in note 6(i) below) or other circumstances constituting an event of default with respect to the Counterparty occur, the Company will be entitled to enforce its security over the collateral as well as to pursue any other remedies it may have against the Counterparty.  In such circumstances, the Company will re-invest the proceeds of realisation of the collateral or distribute the same to Shareholders.

 

(h)        Periodic Returns on Principal and Timings of Payments

US High Income cell - Class A

Under the terms of the Swap Confirmation between the Counterparty and the Company acting for and on behalf of the US High Income cell in respect of Class A, the Counterparty pays to the Company for the account of the US High Income cell quarterly a Sterling amount equal to 1.875% of the notional amount of the Swap Confirmation, equivalent to 1.875 pence per Class A Sterling Hedged US High Income Preference Share, provided that if the underlying portfolio net asset value reaches 110% of the initial underlying portfolio net asset value (equivalent to a net asset value of 110 pence per share), future payments will increase to 2.0625% of the notional amount of the Swap Confirmation, equivalent to 2.0625 pence per Class A Sterling Hedged US High Income Preference Share.  For each subsequent 5 per cent increase in the underlying portfolio net asset value, subsequent quarterly payments will increase by 0.09375%, equivalent to 0.09375 pence per Class A Sterling Hedged US High Income Preference Share.

Where the underlying portfolio net asset value subsequently decreases after having increased to 110% or more of the initial underlying portfolio net asset value, but has not decreased to less than 100% of the initial underlying portfolio net asset value, subsequent quarterly payments will reduce to 2.00 pence per Class A Sterling Hedged Enhanced Income Preference Share.  If the underlying portfolio net asset value has fallen below 100 per cent. and below a lower percentage which is an integral multiple of 5 per cent. i.e. 95%, 90%, 85% (down to 5%) of the initial underlying portfolio net asset value, subsequent dividend payments will be adjusted to be the product of 2.00% and the relevant percentage threshold level and 100 pence per Class A Sterling Hedged Enhanced Income Preference Share.
