As the SEC Ushers in a New Era for Money Funds,
the Fund that Started it All is About to Close a Chapter


Reported by InvestmentWires Staff, 

One day before the SEC approved new money market fund rules came word that the Reserve Primary Fund -- whose breaking the buck in September 2008 sent shockwaves across the investment community and prompted the SEC to make regulatory changes -- is making its sixth distribution on or about January 29.

For the full story on the the death of the Reserve and its Primary Fund, see MFWire's timeline.

The $3.4 billion distribution represents about 95 percent of the fund's remaining asset value of $3.56 billion on January 21. Taking into account the latest round of distribution, $50.5 billion, or about 99 percent of fund assets at the close of business on September 15, 2008, will have been returned to investors.

The Primary fund's NAV dipped below $1 per share on September 16, 2008.

Reserve officials on Tuesday said about $160 million will stay in the fund to cover certain claims for indemnification expenses, management fees and other costs, to the extent such amounts are approved by the court.
New York, January 26, 2010 – The Reserve is pleased to announce that it will begin its sixth distribution to Primary Fund shareholders on or about January 29, 2010. The distribution, in the amount of approximately $3.4 billion, represents approximately 95% of the Fund’s remaining asset value of $3.56 billion as of the close of business on January 21, 2010. Including this sixth distribution, $50.5 billion, or approximately 99% of Fund assets as of the close of business on September 15, 2008, will have been returned to investors.

This sixth distribution, which has been ordered by and is subject to the supervision and oversight of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, is being paid to all investors remaining in the Fund, including those who submitted redemption orders that had not been funded and those who have not submitted redemption orders, according to the terms of the Court’s Order. The Fund’s net asset value fell below $1.00 per share on September 16, 2008.

Approximately $160 million, exclusive of the value of the Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. securities, which are carried at zero, will remain in the Fund to cover certain claims for indemnification expenses, management fees and other costs, to the extent such amounts are approved by the Court.

“We are very happy to move forward with this very significant step in returning money to our shareholders,” said Bruce R. Bent, Chairman of The Reserve Fund. “We have been working as quickly as possible to finalize the liquidation of the Fund in comyou for your patience.”
