Meetings of Shareholders. As a Massachusetts business trust, the Fund is not required to hold, and does not plan to hold, regular annual meetings of shareholders. The Fund will hold meetings when required to do so by the Investment Company Act or other applicable law. It will also do so when a shareholder meeting is called by the Trustees or upon proper request of the shareholders. Shareholders have the right, upon the declaration in writing or vote of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of the Fund, to remove a Trustee. The Trustees will call a meeting of shareholders to vote on the removal of a Trustee upon the written request of the record holders of 10% of its outstanding shares. If the Trustees receive a request from at least 10 shareholders stating that they wish to communicate with other shareholders to request a meeting to remove a Trustee, the Trustees will then either make the Fund's shareholder list available to the applicants or mail their communication to all other shareholders at the applicants' expense. The shareholders making the request must have been shareholders for at least six months and must hold shares of the Fund valued at $25,000 or more or constituting at least 1% of the Fund's outstanding shares, whichever is less. The Trustees may also take other action as permitted by the Investment Company Act.
Meetings of Shareholders. Article 18 The general meetings of shareholders shall be convened and held as provided by law. The meetings of shareholders are held at the registered office or at any other place mentioned in the convening notices. The right to take part in a general meeting of shareholders, is justified by registration on behalf of the shareholder or of the registered intermediary on behalf of that shareholder pursuant to the seventh paragraph of the article L.228-1 of the French Commercial Code, by the third business day prior to the shareholder meeting at midnight, Paris time, either in the registered shares account held by the Company or in the bearer shares account held by the authorized intermediary. This registration of the shares in the bearer account held by the authorized intermediary is noted by the issuance of a shareholding certificate, enclosed with the proxy or with the request for an admission card provided with the name of the shareholder or on behalf of the shareholder represented by the registered intermediary. A shareholder who cannot attend the meeting in person may choose either : • to give a proxy to another shareholder or to his/her spouse, or • to vote by mail, or • to send to the company a proxy without any indication of the name of the representative; within the terms and conditions provided by law and these by-laws. Upon the decision of the board of directors published in the notice of any shareholders meeting, shareholders may, subject to the provisions of and procedures under applicable laws, send their proxy or voting instructions either on paper or using a teletransmission mean. To be taken into account, the proxies and the forms of vote by mail must be deposited with the company at least one business day prior to the date of the meeting. Meetings of shareholders are presided over by the Chairman of the board of directors or in his/her absence, by a director specially authorized for that purpose by the board. If no Chairman has been appointed, the meeting elects its Chairman. The two members of the meeting having the greatest number of votes and who accept that role, are appointed as scrutineers. The officers of the meeting appoint a secretary, who may be a non-shareholder. An attendance sheet is drawn up, in accordance with the law. The ordinary general meeting of the shareholders, upon first convening notice, may carry out business validly only if the shareholders present, or represented, hold at least one-fifth of the voting shares.
