Investment Strategy

Investment Objective

FP’s investment objective is the maximization of returns to shareholders and the increase of the net asset value per share, through investments predominantly in Romanian equities and equity linked securities, subject to legislation and regulations in force.

Performance Objectives

Discount Objective


The discount between the closing price for each Trading Day on the Bucharest Stock Exchange (the “Trading Day”) of the shares issued by FP and the latest reported NAV per Share should be equal to or lower than 15% in at least two thirds of the Trading Days during the Reporting Period (as defined in the IMA) (the “Discount Objective”).


NAV Objective


The Fund Manager should achieve a level of Adjusted NAV per Share (as defined below) higher than the reported NAV as at the end of the previous Reporting Period (term used herein as defined in the IMA) (the “NAV Objective”). For the avoidance of doubt, the term “previous Reporting Period”, when applied to a first Reporting Period under the IMA, is to be understood as being the last Reporting Period derived from either the current or the previous IMA.

The adjusted NAV (the “Adjusted NAV”) for a given date will be calculated as the sum of:

(i) the reported NAV as at the end of the Reporting Period;

(ii) any distributions to shareholders, being either dividend or non-dividend ones (i.e. in this last case following reductions of the par value of the shares and distribution of the decreasing amount to the shareholders), implemented after the end of the previous Reporting Period, and

(iii) any Distribution Fee (as defined in the IMA) and any transaction and/or distribution costs relating to either dividend or non-dividend distributions including buy-backs of shares and/or Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”) and/or depositary interests executed, through daily acquisitions or public tenders, after the end of the previous Reporting Period.

The Adjusted NAV per Share will be equal to the Adjusted NAV divided by the total number of the Fund’s paid shares, less treasury shares (FP ordinary shares bought back) and less equivalent in FP ordinary shares of FP GDRs acquired and not yet converted into FP ordinary shares, on the last day of the Reporting Period (the “Adjusted NAV per Share”).
