What is happening?

 

Aberdeen Japan Investment Trust plc is convening a General Meeting on 21 May 2020 in order to table a Continuation Vote on the Company.

 

Why is this happening?

 

“Under the articles of association of the Company (the “Articles”), the Board is required to monitor the discount at which the Ordinary Shares have been trading in relation to the Net Asset Value (“NAV”), exclusive of income, in the ninety day period prior to the Company’s financial year end, being the three months prior to 31 March in any year. If the Ordinary Shares have been trading, on average, at a discount to NAV in excess of ten per cent. over that ninety day period, then a continuation vote is required to be proposed to Shareholders.

 

“As the Company confirmed by announcement on 3 April 2020 (the “Prior Announcement”), over the ninety day period ending on 31 March 2020 the average discount exceeded ten per cent, albeit by a small amount. The average discount for the period was 10.46%, and therefore under the Articles the Directors are required to propose a continuation vote (“Continuation Vote”) to Shareholders. (Source: Shareholder Circular, 28 April 2020)

 

How can I submit a vote?

 

In order to submit a vote for or against the Continuation by our deadline of noon on Friday 15 May 2020, please click on one of the options below.

 

Full details of this event will be sent to Qualifying Hargreaves Lansdown Clients by either post or secure message. Please note that any instruction you give must be based on the full details provided in the letter and not on the summary information outlined above.

The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
