NB Global Floating Rate Income Fund Limited (the "Company")
Conversion between Share Classes
The Company today announces the conversion of a number of U.S. Dollar Shares into Sterling Shares (the "Conversion"). On the basis of the net asset values of the Company's shares as at 30 April 2012 (and using spot currency exchange rates as appropriate, in each case as at 30 April 2012), the conversion ratios, calculated in accordance with the Company's articles of incorporation, are as follows:
USD to GBP 0.61880407
On the basis of the aggregate level of conversion notices received by the Company, applications have been made for the admission of 12,779,940 Sterling Shares to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority (the "Official List") and the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange plc (the "Main Market"). Application has also been made for the cancellation of the listing on the Official List and admission to the Main Market of 20,652,646 U.S. Dollar Shares. It is expected that such applications will become effective and that dealings in the Sterling Shares will commence on 10 May 2012. Accordingly, the Company's issued share capital with effect from 10 May 2012 will be as follows:
371,965,940 Sterling Shares
121,465,925 U.S. Dollar Shares
U.S. Dollar Shares have 1 vote per share, and Sterling Shares have 1.6 votes per share. Following Conversion (which is expected to take place on 10 May 2012) the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 716,611,429. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms shall have the meaning given to them in the prospectus of the Company dated 18 March 2011.
In accordance with the prospectus the next deadline for receipt of monthly conversion requests will be 18 May 2012.
