Further to our announcement of 16 March 2017, Cromwell Funds Management Limited (ABN 63 114 782 777) (“CFM”) as the responsible entity of Cromwell Phoenix Opportunities Fund (ARSN 602 776 536) (“POF”) did not receive a request from unit holders (holding at least 5% of the votes that may be cast on the resolution) to call and arrange to hold a meeting of unit holders of POF to consider and vote on a special resolution to amend the constitution of POF on the terms described in that announcement.
Accordingly, CFM as the responsible entity of POF executed and lodged the supplemental deed with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission on 27 March 2017 to give effect to the amendments.
The amendments will enable POF to apply the new income tax regime for managed investment trusts that was recently enacted under the Tax Laws Amendment (New Tax System for Managed Investment Trusts) Act 2016 (Cth). The amendments to the constitution of POF are being made in accordance with the requirements of notional subsection 601GCA(3) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), as modified by ASIC Corporations (Attribution Managed Investment Trusts) Instrument 2016/489.
