RECEIVED EMAIL from Philip Colvin (helpline@gartmore.com) on 23 December 2005

‘Gartmore acquired a number of investment funds previously managed by Govett Fund Managers in November 2003 and subsequently the accounts of investors were transferred to us in May 2004. As a result of this transfer, a number of Govett funds merged into similar funds within the Gartmore Investment Fund range. As such, reports are no longer produced for Govett or Gartmore
Govett Investment Funds.’ (said by Philip Colvin – Client Relationship Assistant)

Delisting of shares

The Board of Directors of the Company has decided to seek the cancellation of the UK listing of the Company’s Participating Redeemable Preference Shares on the Official List and the trading of the Shares on the London Stock Exchange’s market for listed securities. This applies to shares in the sub-funds of the Company which are AIB Managed Growth Portfolio, European Growth Fund, Far Eastern Growth Fund, Global Balanced Portfolio, Global Growth Fund, Japanese Growth Fund, UK Gilt & Fixed Interest Securities Fund, UK High Income Portfolio and US Growth Fund.

The Board has now been advised that the earlier requirement of certain institutional investors that the Company should have a UK Listing, no longer applies. Accordingly, given the additional cost of maintaining a listing in the United Kingdom, the Board has decided that it is in the interests of shareholders to seek the cancellation of such listing and the trading of the Shares on the London Stock Exchange’s market for listed securities. It is expected that this cancellation will become effective on 26 July 2004 (the ‘Cancellation Date’).
