4 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure VoteCo is a Guernsey limited liability company with the sole object of holding the issued VoteCo Shares. VoteCo s organisational documents require it to vote in the interests of the Company s shareholders as a whole. Although the Investment Manager contributed the initial amount needed to purchase the VoteCo Shares and has selected the initial independent directors who serve on the board of VoteCo, the Investment Manager has no other affiliation with VoteCo. The members of the VoteCo board of directors are independent from the Investment Manager and have no interest in the Company or the Investment Manager. VoteCo is wholly owned by a purpose trust, PS Holdings Independent Trust, which has a trustee, Virtus Trust Limited, and an enforcer, Fides Corporate Service Limited, and has been established for the benefit of one or more charitable organisations, currently The Breast Cancer Society of Canada. The VoteCo Shares, in aggregate, carry voting rights on each matter put to a vote of the shareholders (other than matters for which a different rule is stated in the Articles of Incorporation or pursuant to applicable law) equal to 50.1 per cent. of the total voting power of all of the Company s shares entitled to vote on that matter. The VoteCo Shares will automatically convert into B Shares upon the Settlement Date. The B Shares will carry identical voting power as the VoteCo Shares. By virtue of VoteCo s holding of VoteCo Shares and, upon conversion on the Settlement Date, B Shares, VoteCo is able to control all matters requiring the vote of a majority of the shareholders, including the election of directors, but a limited set of matters, including (i) amendments to the Articles of Incorporation, (ii) material amendments to the Company s investment policy, (iii) termination of the Investment Management Agreement by the Company and (iv) certain votes to continue or wind-up the Company, will require both a super-majority vote of holders of all classes of shares and a separate class vote of the holders of the Existing Shares and, on and after the Settlement Date, the Public Shares. As of the Admission Date, insofar as is known to the Company, the following persons are expected to be directly or indirectly interested in 3 per cent. or more of the Company s total voting rights or NAV: Percentage of Percentage of Company s the Company s voting rights NAV VoteCo % Blackstone Alternative Asset Management L.P. (1) % 5.96% Rothschild Wealth Management (UK) (1)(2) % 4.13% Qatar Holding LLC (1) % 4.58% Forsta Ap-Fonden (1) % 3.23% Schroder & Co Bank AG (1)(3) % 3.50% (1) The voting power of the Public Shares, together with the Management Shares, is limited to 49.9% of the total voting power of the Company. (2) Rothschild Bank AG has agreed to subscribe for 716,000 Placing Shares (with an aggregate value of $17.9 million). (3) Schroder Investment Management Limited has agreed to subscribe for 585,765 Placing Shares (with an aggregate value of $14.6 million). 2

5 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure The Articles of Incorporation also provide that, subject to certain exceptions, any person will have to notify the Company of the percentage of the Public Shares it holds or is deemed to hold (through such person s direct or indirect holding of financial instruments) if this percentage reaches, exceeds or falls below 3 per cent., 4 per cent., 4.25 per cent., 4.50 per cent., 4.75 per cent. or 5 per cent. The Articles of Incorporation impose restrictions on the ownership of the shares of the Company: In order to minimise the impact of the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act of 1980 ( FIRPTA ) and to comply with its various requirements, the Articles of Incorporation provide that no person may own or be treated as owning, within the meaning of Section 318 of the IRC (as modified by Section 897(c)(6)(C) of the IRC), shares representing more than 4.75 per cent. of the value of the Public Shares (the Ownership Limit ). In order to avoid its assets to be deemed to be plan assets under ERISA, the aggregate number of shares of any class or series held by ERISA Plans must be less than 25 per cent. (or such other percentage as may be specified in applicable regulations) of the aggregate number of outstanding shares of that class or series (the Plan Limit ) and Public Shares may not be acquired by any ERISA Plan (other than, for the avoidance of doubt, by conversion of Existing Shares into Public Shares on the Settlement Date). ERISA Plans include investors using assets of: (A) an employee benefit plan as defined in Section 3(3) of ERISA, that is subject to Title I of ERISA; (B) a plan as defined in Section 4975 of the IRC, including an individual retirement account or other arrangement that is subject to Section 4975 of the IRC; or (C) an entity which is deemed to hold the assets of any of the foregoing types of plans, accounts or arrangements that is subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the IRC. The Articles of Incorporation include excess share provisions designed to enforce the Ownership Limit and the Plan Limit. Upon a prohibited transfer, any such shares in excess of the Ownership Limit or the Plan Limit and any Public Shares purported to be acquired by an ERISA Plan become excess shares and the prohibited owner will not acquire or retain any right or beneficial economic interest in such shares. The excess shares will be automatically transferred to a trust whose trustee shall have the right to designate a person who may acquire the excess shares without violating the applicable ownership restrictions and any other applicable investment and transfer restrictions. The trustee shall pay to the prohibited owner the lesser of (a) the value of the excess shares at the time they became excess shares and (b) the price received by the trustee from the sale of the excess shares to the permitted transferee. 3

There are no qualifications to the audit report on the nature of any historical financial information for the year ended 31 December 2013 and qualifications in the period from 2 February 2012 to 31 December the audit report on the historical financial information B11 Insufficient Not applicable. The Company is of the opinion that it has sufficient working capital working capital for its present requirements, that is for at least the next 12 months from the date of this Prospectus. B34 Investment Investment Objective and Policy objective and The Company s investment objective is to preserve capital and seek policy maximum, long-term capital appreciation commensurate with reasonable risk. The Investment Manager defines risk as the probability of permanent loss of capital, rather than price volatility. In its value approach to investing, the Investment Manager seeks to identify and invest in long (and occasionally short) investment opportunities that the Investment Manager believes exhibit significant valuation discrepancies between current trading prices and intrinsic business (or net asset) value, often with a catalyst for value recognition. The Investment Manager s focus on deeply undervalued securities is due to its belief that a well-priced purchase is often the most important determinant of the success of an investment. In addition, the Investment Manager believes that the acquisition of a portfolio of investments, when acquired at a large discount to intrinsic value, provides a margin of safety that can mitigate the likelihood of an overall permanent loss of the Company s capital. 6

9 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure The Investment Manager believes that investments that meet the Company s objectives are often found in companies undergoing significant changes in strategy, capital structure, corporate governance, management, legal exposure, corporate form, shareholder composition and control, liquidity and financial condition, and in companies that are affected by external changes in the economic and political environment, including changes in the relevant tax code. The Investment Manager believes that investment opportunities that meet the Company s objectives may at times occur in distressed securities, companies in or exiting bankruptcy, spin-offs, rights offerings, liquidations, companies for which litigation is a major asset or liability, misunderstood large capitalisation companies, under-followed small and midcapitalisation companies, and other special situations. While the Investment Manager is comfortable making investments in a wide range of industries and asset classes, it generally prefers investments in simple businesses or assets that generate cash flow streams that can be estimated within a reasonable range over the long term. The Investment Manager is willing to accept a high degree of situational, legal, and/or capital structure complexity in the Company s investments if it believes that the resulting complexity allows for a bargain purchase. The Investment Manager generally seeks to make investments in three broad categories of opportunities: (1) great businesses at fair prices, where a great business is generally understood by the Investment Manager as one which generates relatively predictable, growing, free cash flows, (2) good businesses or assets at significantly cheap prices often with a catalyst to realise value, and (3) mispriced probabilistic investments where the Investment Manager believes that the market price of a security or other investment under- or over-estimates the probability of a favourable outcome of a legal decision, contract or patent award or a change in interest rates, exchange rates or commodity prices, or such other event that is expected to lead to a significant change in the valuation of such security or investment. In certain situations, if the Investment Manager believes the commitment of time, energy and capital is justified in light of the potential for reward, the Investment Manager may seek to be a catalyst to realise value from an investment by taking an active role in effectuating corporate change, either working alone or in conjunction with other investors. These activist techniques may include working with management or other more aggressive steps such as acquiring substantial publicly disclosed stakes in issuers, proposing a restructuring, recapitalisation, sale, or other change in strategic direction, seeking potential acquirers, engaging in proxy contests, making tender offers, changing management and other related activities. The Investment Manager believes that these activist techniques can both accelerate and maximise the realisation of value from an investment. The Investment Manager also seeks short sale investments that offer absolute return opportunities. In addition, the Investment Manager may short individual securities to hedge or reduce the Company s long exposures. 7

10 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure In order to mitigate market-related downside risk, the Company may acquire put options, short market indices, baskets of securities and/or purchase credit-default swaps, but the Investment Manager is not committed to maintaining market hedges at any time. In seeking to achieve the Company s objective, the Investment Manager may use any investment strategy, long or short, in the global marketplace that it believes will enhance overall performance. There are no restrictions on the securities or other financial instruments that may be used by the Company. The Company is authorised and is expected to invest in long and short positions in equity or debt securities of U.S. and non-u.s. issuers (including securities convertible into equity or debt securities); distressed securities, rights, options and warrants; bonds, notes and equity and debt indices; swaps (including equity, foreign exchange, interest rate, commodity and credit-default swaps), swaptions, and other derivatives; instruments such as futures contracts, foreign currency, forward contracts on stock indices and structured equity or fixed-income products (including without limitation, asset-backed securities, mortgage-backed securities, mezzanine loans, commercial loans, mortgages and bank debt); exchangetraded funds; and any other financial instruments that the Investment Manager believes will achieve the Company s investment objective. The Company s investments may include both publicly traded and privately placed securities of public issuers, as well as publicly traded securities of private issuers. The Company also may invest in securities sold pursuant to initial public offerings. Investments in options on financial indices may be used to establish or increase long or short positions or to hedge the Company s investments. The Investment Manager has no overarching strategy or asset allocation model that specifies what percentage of the portfolio should be invested in each investment category. Rather, cash, cash equivalents, and/or U.S. Treasuries are generally the default investment choices until the Investment Manager identifies new opportunities. The Company s allocation among different investment categories is a function of their potential risk and reward compared with available opportunities in the marketplace. Accordingly, the Company may hold significant cash balances on an ongoing basis. The Company will not make an initial investment in the equity of companies whose securities are not publicly traded (i.e. private equity) but, as described above, may invest in privately placed securities of public issuers and publicly traded securities of private issuers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is possible that, in limited circumstances, public companies in which the Company has invested may later be taken private and the Company may make additional investments in the equity or debt of such companies. The Company may make investments in the debt securities of a private company, provided that there is an observable market price for such debt securities. 8

11 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure Diversification As part of the Company s investment programme, the Investment Manager intends to concentrate the Company s assets in a relatively limited number of investments because the Investment Manager believes that (i) there are a limited number of attractive investments available in the marketplace at any one time, and (ii) investing in a relatively modest number of attractive investments about which it has detailed knowledge provides a better opportunity to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns when compared with a large diversified portfolio of investments it can know less well. As a result, the Investment Manager intends to invest the substantial majority of the Company s capital in typically 8 to 12 core investments. Leverage The Investment Manager generally does not believe in the use of a material amount of margin leverage because of the potential risk of forced sales at inferior prices in the event of short-term declines in security prices in a margined portfolio. In certain circumstances, the Company may access the bond market and obtain other forms of financing, including, without limitations, margin loans. The Company may also use derivatives, including equity options, in order to obtain security-specific non-recourse leverage in an effort to reduce the capital commitment to a specific investment, while potentially enhancing the returns on the capital invested in that investment. Furthermore, the Company may use derivatives, such as equity and credit derivatives and put options, to achieve a synthetic short position in a company without exposing the Company to some of the typical risks of short selling, which include the possibility of unlimited losses and the risks associated with maintaining a stock borrow. In addition, the Company, from time to time, enters into total return swaps, which are equity derivatives with inherent recourse leverage. The Company generally does not use total return swaps to obtain leverage, but, rather, to manage regulatory, tax, legal or other issues. Investment Restrictions So long as the Company relies on certain exemptions from investment company status under the Investment Company Act, the Company will not purchase more than 3 per cent. of the outstanding voting securities of any SEC-registered investment company. Material Changes to the Investment Policy Any material change to the Company s investment policy will require a 75 per cent. vote (by voting power) of the holders of all voting shares represented at a shareholder meeting, together with a majority vote (by voting power) of the holders of the Public Shares represented at the meeting. 9

12 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure B35 Borrowing limits The Board has adopted a policy pursuant to which the borrowing ratio of the Company, defined for this purpose as the ratio of the aggregate principal amount of all borrowed money (including margin loans) to total assets (pursuant to the latest available annual or interim financial statements of the Company) shall in no event exceed 50 per cent. at the time of incurrence of any borrowing or drawdown. The Board may amend the Company s borrowing policy from time to time, although the Board may not increase or decrease the Company s maximum borrowing ratio without the prior consent of the Investment Manager. This borrowing policy does not apply to and does not limit the leverage inherent in the use of derivative instruments. As of the date of this Prospectus, the Company does not have any borrowed money or outstanding financial indebtedness or any outstanding mortgages, charges or security interests over or attaching to any of its assets. B36 Regulatory status The Company currently operates as a registered open-ended investment scheme regulated under the Protection of Investors Law and the 2008 Rules, but the GFSC has approved the conversion of the Company into a registered closed-ended investment scheme under the Protection of Investors Law and the 2008 Rules subject to completion of the normal registration procedure and the Placing. The Company expects the conversion to be effective upon the Settlement Date without the need for shareholder approval. The Company is not regulated by the AFM. B37 Typical investors An investment in the Placing Shares is suitable only for investors who are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment, who understand the potential risk of capital loss and that there may be limited liquidity in the Public Shares, for whom an investment in the Public Shares constitutes part of a diversified investment portfolio, who fully understand and are willing to assume the risks involved in investing in the Company and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear losses (which may equal the whole amount invested) that may result from such an investment. Accordingly, typical investors in the Company are expected to be experienced investors, institutional investors, high net worth investors, those investors who have taken appropriate professional advice and understand the risks involved in investing in the Company and, if in the EEA, qualified investors within the meaning of Article 2(1)(e) of the Prospectus Directive and, to the extent the Company markets the Placing Shares in any jurisdiction in the EEA in reliance on the national private placement provisions of the AIFM Directive, professional investors within the meaning of Article 4(1)(ag) of the AIFM Directive. Investors may want to consult their stockbroker, fund manager, solicitor, accountant or other independent financial adviser before making an investment in the Company. 10

13 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure B38 Investment of As of 30 June 2014, the Company s investment in Allergan, Inc. ( AGN ) 20 per cent. or (through PS Fund 1) represented 36.7 per cent. of the NAV of the more in single Company. It is expected that this percentage will be lower after the underlying asset Placing. According to its annual report dated 25 February 2014, AGN, a or investment Delaware corporation, is a multi-specialty health care company with company approximately 11,400 employees, global marketing and sales capabilities with a presence in more than 100 countries, with a portfolio of pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices and over-the-counter consumer products.

The Company does not have an investment of 40 per cent. 40 per cent. or or more of its gross assets in any single underlying asset or investment more in single company. underlying asset or investment company B40 Applicant s service Investment Manager providers Management Fee Pursuant to the Investment Management Agreement, the Investment Manager will earn a management fee (the Management Fee ) payable in advance each quarter (on the first business day of such quarter) in an amount equal to per cent. (1.5 per cent. per annum) of the net assets (before any accrued performance fee) attributable to Fee-Paying Shares (also referred to as the Fee-Paying Assets in this Prospectus). Prior to the Settlement Date, the Fee-Paying Shares of the Company comprise the Existing Shares, and immediately following the Settlement Date, will comprise the Public Shares and the B Shares. The Management Shares are not Fee-Paying Shares (see further the paragraph below headed Management Shares ). On the Settlement Date, the Investment Manager will receive a Management Fee in respect of the remainder of the financial quarter in which the Settlement Date falls on the Public Shares then being issued, whether for cash or by conversion, net of any unearned portion of the Management Fee previously paid in respect of that financial quarter on the Existing Shares then converting into Public Shares. The Management Fee payable on the Settlement Date will be based on the initial NAV of the Company attributable to the Public Shares. In consideration for the Management Fee, the Investment Manager renders investment management or certain other services to the Company and bears related overhead and administrative expenses (such as employment expenses, office expenses or certain insurance expenses). Shareholders should note that the Management Fee in respect of any quarter to which it relates may exceed the expenses borne by the Investment Manager in such quarter. 11

14 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure Variable Performance Fee The Investment Manager traditionally earns a performance fee, or incentive allocation, of 20 per cent. of the gains attributable to the fee-paying shares or interests of the funds it manages (the 20 per cent. Performance Fee ). In particular, the Investment Manager, or one of its affiliates, acts as the investment manager for Pershing Square, L.P., and Pershing Square II, L.P., two Delaware limited partnerships launched in January 2004 and 2005, respectively (collectively, the Pershing Square Partnerships ), as well as Pershing Square International, Ltd., a Cayman Islands exempted company launched in January 2005 ( Pershing Square International ). The Pershing Square Partnerships and Pershing Square International are together referred to as the Affiliated Funds in this Prospectus. Under the Investment Management Agreement the Investment Manager has entered into with the Company, the Investment Manager has agreed to a significant reduction in the 20 per cent. Performance Fee so as to offer enhanced economics to the Shareholders. From the inception of the Company, the Investment Manager has earned (and will earn until the Settlement Date) a performance fee of 16 per cent. of the gains attributable to the Fee-Paying Shares of the Company (the 16 per cent. Performance Fee ), which itself represents a fixed one-fifth reduction from the 20 per cent. Performance Fee. From the Settlement Date, the performance fee earned by the Investment Manager on the Fee-Paying Shares of the Company may be still further reduced as described below (as so reduced, the Variable Performance Fee ). The Variable Performance Fee that will be earned by the Investment Manager from the Settlement Date will be equal to (i) the 16 per cent. Performance Fee minus (ii) the Additional Reduction. The Additional Reduction is equal to 20 per cent. of the U.S. Dollar value of the aggregate performance fees or incentive allocation the Investment Manager and its Affiliates earn in respect of the same calculation period on the gains of the Other Funds (as defined below). Other Funds include the Affiliated Funds and other current and future funds the Investment Manager or any of its Affiliates manages from time to time, including funds that are co-investment vehicles established for purposes of investing in public equities, but excluding any publicly listed U.S. funds, any private real estate or private equity funds or any funds the inclusion of the performance fees or incentive allocation of which could, in the sole discretion of the Investment Manager, result in adverse legal, tax or regulatory consequences for such other funds, the Company, the Investment Manager and/or any Affiliates of the foregoing. As of the date of this Prospectus, the Other Funds comprise the Affiliated Funds and the PSV Funds. 12

15 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure Accordingly, the maximum performance fee on the Public Shares will be 16 per cent. of the gains attributable to the Public Shares, and may, depending upon the dollar value of the performance fees or incentive allocation earned by the Investment Manager and its Affiliates on the gains of the Other Funds, be lower. As of 30 June 2014, the Other Funds had $9.9 billion of Fee-Paying Assets (this amount includes the $459 million of Fee-Paying Assets of the PSV Funds, which are subject to scaled 5, 10 and 15 per cent. performance fees that are not payable before the earlier of the full or partial realisation of the PSV Funds investments and July 2016) and aggregate accrued performance fee and incentive allocation of $451 million (this amount includes the $10 million of accrued performance fees with respect to the PSV Funds described above). The Company believes that the Additional Reduction represents a clear and distinguishing feature from most other publicly listed funds and has the potential to meaningfully improve NAV per share performance and thereby add value to the Company and holders of Public Shares. In effect, as a result of the formulation of the Variable Performance Fee, holders of Public Shares will, in addition to participating in gains on the Company s assets, benefit from both a fixed one-fifth reduction in the performance fees traditionally earned by the Investment Manager and potential additional reductions the amount of which depends on the performance fees and incentive allocations the Investment Manager and its Affiliates earn from the Other Funds. The Variable Performance Fee for any period cannot be less than zero, but any negative amount that would result, but for this restriction, from the Additional Reduction will be carried forward and be available to reduce the Variable Performance Fee for any future period. In the event that any such carried-forward amount is still available after offsetting any performance fee crystallising upon the dissolution of the Company or the termination of the Investment Management Agreement (including as a result of the termination of the Investment Management Agreement by the Board with the required shareholder approval), such amount will be forfeited and neither the Company nor any shareholder will be entitled to any payment in respect thereof. Realised and Unrealised Gains For purposes of the performance fee calculation, gains refer to the net realised and unrealised increase (if any) in the NAV attributable to relevant Fee-Paying Shares (calculated before giving effect to the Variable Performance Fee and the Offset Amount (as defined below) above the high water mark applicable to such shares, that in each case have accrued at the relevant Crystallisation Event (as defined below). Crystallisation Events A crystallisation event is an event upon which the performance fee, if earned, is payable (a Crystallisation Event ). The consummation of the Placing will be a Crystallisation Event for payment of the 16 per cent. Performance Fee on the Existing Shares. Following the Settlement Date, there will be a Crystallisation Event in the Company on 31 December of each year. The termination of the Investment Management Agreement at any time or the dissolution of the Company will also be Crystallisation Events. 13

16 Section B Issuer Element Disclosure requirement Disclosure High Water Marks A high water mark is the highest NAV attributable to a class or series of Fee-Paying Shares (including the Public Shares) at the end of any period (typically, each 31 December and any other Crystallisation Event) for which the performance fee is paid (or would be paid without taking into account the Additional Reduction) to the Investment Manager. The initial high water mark of the Public Shares is equal to the high water mark upon Placing of the series of Existing Shares issued on the Initial Closing Date (the Reference Series ) after giving effect to any performance fee crystallising in respect of the Reference Series as a result of the Placing. The high water marks of the Public Shares set at the end of any period following the Placing will be calculated after the NAV per Public Share is reduced by (i) the Management Fee, (ii) the Variable Performance Fee and (iii) the Offset Amount, in each case accruing at, or before, the relevant Crystallisation Event. Management Shares The Investment Manager may determine to waive, reduce or calculate differently the Management Fee or the Variable Performance Fee with respect to shares issued to certain shareholders, including the Investment Manager itself and certain members, partners, officers, managers, employees or Affiliates of the Investment Manager or certain other shareholders. Such shares are referred to as Management Shares in this Prospectus and will form a separate class of shares. Management Shares can be issued in different series. From 31 December 2012 to the date of this Prospectus, the Company has issued one series of Management Shares comprising 52, shares, on which no performance fee or management fee is payable. The Company does not expect that the Management Shares will be admitted to trading on Euronext Amsterdam or elsewhere. After the Settlement Date, holders of Management Shares will, however, be entitled to convert those shares into Public Shares on a NAV-for-NAV basis. In addition, pursuant to the Investment Management Agreement, the Investment Manager will have the right to exchange Management Shares for any Public Shares it holds from time to time or vice versa. Administration The Company has retained Elysium Fund Management Limited to serve as Administrator and Morgan Stanley Fund Services (Bermuda) Ltd. to serve as Sub-Administrator under the Administration and Sub-Administration Agreement. For the provision of their respective services, the Administrator and Sub-Administrator are entitled to receive annual fees linked to the NAV of the Company. The AIFM Directive Services Provider The Company has appointed Morgan Stanley Fund Services (Bermuda) Ltd. (the AIFMD Services Provider ) to provide certain services that relate to duties of a depositary under the AIFM Directive, in exchange for an annual fee as may be agreed with the Company from time to time. 14

For so long as it is required to do so pursuant to its U.S. regulatory obligations, the Company will also issue a reconciliation of its audited annual report and accounts to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ( U.S. GAAP ). Since the fees charged by the auditor will depend on the services provided and the time spent by the auditor on the affairs of the Company, there is therefore no maximum amount payable under the auditor s engagement letter. The auditor is subject to appointment or re-appointment at each annual meeting of the shareholders. VoteCo Under the VoteCo Support and Lock-up Agreement, the Company will provide VoteCo with funds from time to time so that VoteCo is able to meet its obligations as they fall due, to pay all of its expenses, including the fees of the directors of VoteCo and the fees of all advisers engaged by the directors of VoteCo and premiums for directors and officers insurance, and, subject to the Guernsey Companies Law, to indemnify the directors of VoteCo in respect of all liability that they may incur in their capacity as directors of VoteCo.
