On 7 October 2015, Securityholder approval was obtained for the buyback of 15% of the Fund’s Securities on issue. The buyback was initiated on 12 October 2015 and was subsequently completed on 11 January 2016. The average buyback price was $1.14 per Security which represents an 11.6% discount to NTA per Security of $1.29 at the time.
