A meeting of the members of the Aurora Fortitude Absolute Return Fund was held at 11.00am on 26 September 2016 in accordance with the Notice of Meeting issued on 18 August 2016.
The independent Chairman, Mr John Malon, opened the meeting and noted that there had been some recent developments in relation to the subject matter of the meeting. In particular, the Chairman noted that Aurora had informed him that:
(a) It wished to retire as Responsible Entity under section 601FL of the Corporations Act and clause 17.1 of the Fund’s constitution;
(b) It considered it in the best interests of members of the Fund that they have a choice of responsible entities to replace it as responsible entity of the Fund; and
(c) It requested that the meeting be adjourned to allow unitholders the opportunity to consider the alternatives and to receive additional information in relation to them.
The Chairman indicated that it was appropriate to adjourn the meeting to enable additional options to be put before the members of the Fund and for the relevant additional information to be provided to them.
It was indicated that notices of the meetings and additional information would be despatched as soon as possible, expected to be within the next 3 weeks.
The Chairman noted that Aurora was not yet in a position to confirm the date on which the meetings will be held, partly due to uncertainty surrounding the Chairman’s availability for the meeting. However, it was stated that the objective was for the meetings to be held in early November.
The Chairman declared the meeting of the Fund adjourned to the place and time specified in a notice of adjourned meeting to be issued by Aurora and thanked unitholders for their attendance.
