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
