Transfer of Threadneedle US Equity Income Fund

The Threadneedle US Equity Income Fund was transferred into a new fund, the US Equity Income Fund, on 20 May 2016.

An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) was held on 23 March 2016 at which the requisite majority of 75% shareholders voted in favour of our proposal to transfer the Threadneedle US Equity Income Fund (the Existing Fund) into a new US Equity Income Fund (the New Fund).

Shares in the Existing Fund were automatically switched for shares in the New Fund on 20 May 2016 and subsequently the Existing Fund was closed.
