Stocks in this article: APF

Morgan Stanley Asia-Pacific Fund, Inc. (NYSE:APF) (the “Fund”) announced today the commencement of a tender offer by the Fund to acquire in exchange for cash up to 5 percent of the Fund’s outstanding shares at a price equal to 98 percent of the Fund’s net asset value per share as of the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange on the business day immediately following the day the offer expires (the “Tender Offer”). If more than 5 percent of the Fund’s outstanding shares are tendered, the Fund will purchase its shares from tendering stockholders on a pro rata basis at a price of 98 percent of the Fund’s net asset value per share.

The Tender Offer is being made on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer Notice and related Letter of Transmittal in connection with commencement of the Tender Offer on October 19, 2012 and termination of the Tender Offer at 11:59 p.m. New York time on November 16, 2012, unless extended. The pricing date will be November 19, 2012, unless the Tender Offer is extended.

In connection with the Tender Offer, the Fund has temporarily suspended any purchases of shares in the open market pursuant to its share repurchase program until on or about 10 business days after the termination of the Tender Offer, as required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The next 12-week measurement period under the amended discount management program will commence on January 7, 2013.

This announcement is not a recommendation, an offer to purchase or a solicitation to sell any securities of the Fund. The Tender Offer is being made only by an Offer Notice, a related Letter of Transmittal and other documents, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Shareholders of the Fund should read the Offer Notice, tender offer statement and related exhibits when those documents are filed and become available, as they will contain important information about the Tender Offer. These and other filed documents are available to investors for free both at the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission and from the Fund. Shareholders may obtain further information regarding the Tender Offer from Georgeson Inc., the Information Agent for the Tender Offer, by calling 1-888-654-1722.
