In case the shareholder has submitted the voting ballot, but also attends the general meeting in person, all the voting ballots submitted by the shareholder before the general meeting shall be considered invalid.

  3. In case the shareholder is represented at the general meeting by a representative, a digitally signed power of attorney certifying the right of representation must be submitted to the e-mail address koosolek@eften.ee together with the electronic vote or before submitting the electronic vote.

Pursuant to the resolution of the Supervisory Board of EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS, the annual general meeting will have the following agenda together with proposals of the Supervisory Board to the shareholders:

Item 1: Management Board’s overview of the fund’s activities
The Management Board shall provide an overview of the activities of EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS and the planned merger. The item is for informational purposes only.

Item 2: Determining the exchange ratio
EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS as the Acquiring Fund and EfTEN Kinnisvarafond AS as the Fund Being Acquired have signed a merger agreement on 19.09.2022. In order to carry out the merger according to the clause 6.3 of the merger agreement, the share capital of the Acquiring Fund shall be increased on the account of the total assets of the Fund Being Acquired and transferred to the Acquiring Fund (non-monetary contribution), the value of which shall be EPRA Net Asset Value of the Fund Being Acquired.
According to the instructions given to the management company by the Financial Supervision Authority, the conditions for determining the value of the exchange ratio and the value of the shares taken as the basis for determining the exchange ratio must be decided by voting as a separate agenda item in accordance with § 143 (5) of the Investment Funds Act.
Proposal of the Supervisory Board: To approve the conditions for the determination of the exchange ratio of the merger of EfTEN Kinnisvarafond AS and EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS and the value of the shares used as the basis for determining the exchange ratio as follows:

  1. In order to carry out the merger, the share capital of the Acquiring Fund shall be increased on the account of the totality of assets of the Fund Being Acquired transferred to the Acquiring Fund (non-monetary contribution), the value of which shall be EPRA (the official name: European Public Real Estate Association, hereinafter EPRA) Net Asset Value of the Fund Being Acquired.

  2. The extent of the increase of share capital of the Acquiring Fund as well as the number of shares to be issued upon the increase and the share premium shall be calculated on the basis of the following formula (specified also in clause 6.4.1 of the merger agreement): Number of new shares of the Acquiring Fund upon increase of share capital = the Fund's Being Acquired EPRA NAV (in euros) ÷ the Acquiring Fund's EPRA NAV per share (in euros, precision equivalent to four decimals). The Fund's Being Acquired EPRA NAV = the Fund's Being Acquired equity + the Fund's Being Acquired interest derivatives at fair value + the Fund's Being Acquired deferred income tax liability. The Acquiring Fund's EPRA NAV per share = (the Acquiring Fund's equity + the Acquiring Fund's interest derivatives at fair value + the Acquiring Fund's deferred income tax liability) ÷ number of the Acquiring Fund's shares.

Item 3: Approval of the merger agreement and determination of the list of shareholders
EfTEN Kinnisvarafond AS and EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS concluded on 19 September 2022 a merger agreement. According to the clause 6.5 of the merger agreement, the list of shareholders of the Fund Being Acquired will be fixed as of 31.12.2022, unless the general meeting specifies otherwise. Taking into account the relatively long time period between 31.12.2022 and the planned merger, it is appropriate to fix the list of shareholders of the Fund Being Acquired closer to the merger's effective date. The merger has been approved by the depositaries of both funds. Rights and obligations arise under the merger agreement only after the merger agreement has been approved by the general meeting of the shareholders of both funds. The completion of the merger is subject to the authorisation from the Financial Supervision Authority, for which the fund manager has submitted an application to the Financial Supervision Authority.
Proposal of the Supervisory Board: To approve the merger agreement concluded on 19 September 2022 between EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS and EfTEN Kinnisvarafond AS, and to carry out the merger under the conditions stipulated in the merger agreement and set the date of fixing the list of shareholders of the Fund Being Acquired as 31.01.2023 in accordance with clause 6.5 of the merger agreement.

Item 4: Amendment of the business name and the articles of association
In the course of the merger, the business name of EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS shall be amended, and the fund shall continue operations under the business name EfTEN Real Estate Fund AS. In order to amend the business name, the articles of association of EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS will have to be amended as well.
Proposal of the Supervisory Board: To approve EfTEN Real Estate Fund AS as the new business name and to approve the new articles of association as presented to the general meeting.

Item 5: Increase of share capital and listing of new shares on the Main List of Nasdaq Tallinn Stock Exchange
In order to carry out the merger, the share capital of EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS as an Acquiring Fund shall be increased on the account of the total assets of EfTEN Kinnisvarafond AS to be transferred to EfTEN Real Estate Fund III AS. The extent of the increase of share capital as well as the number of shares to be issued upon the increase shall be calculated on the basis of the formula specified in clause 6.4.1 of the merger agreement as at the day preceding the balance sheet day of the merger (i.e. 1 January 2023), i.e. on the basis of the balance sheet figures as at 31 December 2022. Since this date is later than the date of the general meeting,  the increase of the share capital shall be delegated to the Supervisory Board.
Proposal of the Supervisory Board: To delegate to the competence of the Supervisory Board, in accordance with the law and articles of association of the fund, the decision on the increase of share capital in accordance with the principles specified in the merger agreement concluded on 19 September 2022 within a four-month period following this general meeting and to submit an application for the listing and admission to trading of all newly-issued shares on the Main List of Nasdaq Tallinn Stock Exchange. To authorise the Supervisory Board and the Management Board of the fund to carry out all activities and conclude all agreements necessary for this purpose.
