Company Press Release
SHELTON GREATER CHINA FUND TRANSITION TO AN OPEN-END FUND
New Structure Provides Investors Daily Liquidity at Net Asset Value
SAN FRANCISCO – September 2, 2011 - The Shelton Greater China Fund (the "Fund") announced today that the conversion of the Fund from a closed-end fund to an open-end fund is expected to occur on October 7, 2011. At that time the Fund expects that the arrangements with its transfer agent and other service providers necessary to permit the Fund to function as an open-end fund will be in place. The Fund will confirm the conversion date by issuing a further press release approximately two weeks prior to the definitive date of conversion.
Shareholders of the Fund approved its conversion from closed-end to open-end earlier this year. As part of this conversion, Shelton Capital Management has announced a 90-day 2 percent redemption fee. The conversion from a closed-end fund, which trades at the current market price, to an open-end fund, which sells and redeems its shares at the day’s closing net asset value (NAV), will eliminate the discount at which the Fund has historically traded.
The Fund's objective is long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in companies that (i) are domiciled in, or traded on exchanges located in the Greater China region, specifically Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the People's Republic of China or (ii) have derived or are expected to derive in the company's current fiscal year (measured as of the time of original investment) a significant portion (at least 50%) of their revenues by exporting to or importing from, trading with or operating in mainland China. A company meeting the requirements of either items (i) or (ii) of the previous sentence is defined as a "Greater China Company."
