There is uncertainty concerning the identity of the responsible entity of the fund thathas been created by the conduct of Primary Securities Limited. In order to attempt to make the previously announced distribution of 0.16 cents per unit payable on 18 February 2019, Aurora suggested to the fund's registrar that the payment to ABW unitholders be made directly by the registrar from the distribution n which the Master Fund will make in respect of the units in the Master Fund held by ABW. The registrar has written to Primry seeking Primary's consent t this action. Aurora is not aware of the registrar having received a response to that request. 19/02/2019

On 31 January 2019, Molopo released its Quarterly Cash Flow Statement for the quarter ended 31 December 2018. Based on the information contained in this Quarterly Cash Flow Statement, Aurora has reassessed the carrying value of its investment in Molopo and has decided to write the value of its investment down from 2.6 cents to 1.9 cents. 01/02/2019
Aurora confirms that, in order to resolve the confusion as to the identity of the responsible entity of the Fund, caused by the conduct of Primary Securities Limited (Primary) in calling and holding the purported meeting of 15 January 2019, it has today filed, and is in the process of serving, proceedings in the Supreme Court of New South Wales. Those proceedings seek a determination by that Court of the validity of the purported meeting of 15 January 2019, including the effectiveness of the purported resolutions to remove Aurora as responsible entity of ABW and appointing Primary in its place. 31/01/2019
The Australian Securities and Investment Commission has today changed its register to show Primary Securities Ltd as the responsible entity for the Aurora Absolute Return Fund as from 29 January 2019. This results from a meeting of members of ABW held on 15 January 2019 where 91% of the members present resolved to amend the Constitution of ABW and remove Aurora Funds Management Limited as responsible entity of ABW and appoint Primary Securities Ltd.31/01/2019

Aurora advises that it has been informed by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) that ASIC has, contrary to the submissions made by Aurora, entered a change of the responsible entity of the Fund from Aurora to Primary Securities Ltd in ASIC's record of registration for the Fund. This change in the record, however, does not determine the validity of the purported change of responsible entity. That will depend on the determination of the validity of the purported meeting of 15 January 2019 and the business transacted at that meeting. Aurora is in the process of preparing an application to the Court to determine the validity of the purported meeting of 15 January 2019 and the business transacted at that meeting. Aurora continues to maintain that the meeting was not properly called and held, and that the resolutions are of no legal effect. This position is not affected in any way by the acts of ASIC in entering a change in responsible entity in its record of registration for the Fund. Accordingly, Aurora will not hand over the assets and records of the Fund to Primary unless the Court determines, contrary to Aurora's views, in favour of the validity of the meeting and its resolutions. 29/01/2019

The suspension of trading in the securities of Aurora Absolute Return Fund (the "Fund") will be lifted immediately following release of an announcement by the Fund.04/05/2016
The Fund invests into a Master Fund and the Master Fund has temporarily suspended applications and redemptions which means that there is no liquidity in the Master Fund. The Master Fund holds Antares Energy Limited Convertible Notes which is approximately 8.09% of the net asset value of the Master Fund. Aurora is working towards creating a liquidity mechanism in the Fund, which will provide an opportunity for investors to redeem the liquid portion of the Fund and provide investors with an entitlement to the illiquid portion. This is likely to be off market rather than through the ASX. Aurora's view is that this is likely to provide the best opportunity for investors to maximise their returns.04/05/2016
