Aberdeen Emerging Markets Smaller Company Opportunities Fund, Inc. Announces Updated Portfolio

PHILADELPHIA, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Aberdeen Emerging Markets Smaller Company Opportunities Fund, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ETF) (the "Fund") announced the completion of the restructuring of its portfolio to reflect changes to its investment policies.  As previously announced on March 14, 2013, shareholders voted to change certain investment policies of the Fund.


As a result of these policy changes, effective March 15, 2013, the Fund no longer concentrates its investments in the telecommunications industry and is not required to focus its investment in any industry.  To reflect the new investment policies, the Fund's name has been changed to Aberdeen Emerging Markets Smaller Company Opportunities Fund, Inc.

The Adviser has completed the restructuring of the Fund's portfolio to reflect its new investment policies.  A complete list of the Fund's holdings as of May 31, 2013 and other Fund Information may be found at

Please join the head of Aberdeen's Global Emerging Markets team, Devan Kaloo, on a web cast to review the Fund's new investment objective and current portfolio positioning.  The web cast will be held Friday, June 14, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. ET.  To register, see Aberdeen's Closed-End Fund Talk Channel at

Replays of the Fund's web cast will be available following the "live" broadcast.
