The Funds investment objective is capital appreciation. The Funds investment adviser, 13D Management LLC (the Adviser), seeks to achieve the Funds investment objective by investing primarily in common stocks of U.S. companies of any market capitalization that are the target of shareholder activism. The Adviser defines an activist situation as one where an investor holds more than 5% of a companys shares and either (A) has a history of activist investing and/or (B) has a publicly disclosed catalyst for change such as seeking Board seats, improving operations and/or corporate governance practices, approving a merger, spinning-off an operating division or selling a significant amount of company assets (such an investor being referred to herein as an activist). The Adviser derives its activist information primarily from legally-mandated filings known as 13D filings. Rules adopted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 require a shareholders that acquires more than 5% of a companys shares to file a form with the Securities and Exchange Commission known as a Schedule 13D that discloses the investor identity and its intent to influence management. The Adviser reviews all material activist situations and makes investment decisions based on its knowledge of the activist investor involved, the industry, the shareholder base, the activists average cost, its strategy and the Advisers determination of the chance of success and potential impact on share price. In pursuing the Funds investment objective, the Adviser also evaluates and considers environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, with strong emphasis on corporate governance. Generally, a significant majority of portfolio positions will have a shareholder representative on the board of directors who advocates for best in class corporate governance practices and a shareholder focused mentality. While some of these investments will be in companies with good corporate governance practices, unlike other ESG investors, many will be in situations where an activist is attempting to remedy poor corporate governance. This can range from implementing best corporate governance practices to completely changing corporate culture and replacing entrenched, conflicted and self-dealing management teams. The Adviser also expects that these shareholder representatives who sit on the boards of our portfolio companies that the Fund may invest in will be monitoring, encouraging and implementing responsible social and environmental corporate policies. The Adviser believes that many of the companies which it selects for investment by the Fund provide an opportunity to improve the ESG characteristics of those companies.
