Where an offer is made to accredited investors pursuant to section 305 of the SFA, the following restrictions apply to Shares acquired pursuant to such an offer. Where such Shares are first sold to any person other than: (i) an institutional investor; (ii) a relevant person; or (iii) on terms in accordance with section 305(2) of the SFA, the requirements of Subdivisions (2) and (3) of Division 2 to Part XIII of the SFA will apply to the offer resulting in such sale, save where: (a) the Shares acquired are of the same class as the other Shares in a Fund, an offer of which has previously been made in or accompanied by a Prospectus and which are listed on a securities exchange; or (b) the shares acquired are of the same class as other Shares in a Fund in respect of which an offer has previously been made in, or a listing has been accompanied by, an offer information statement or other document approved by a securities exchange, and which Shares are listed for quotation on the exchange.

The offer of Shares of the Funds deals with securities that are not registered in the Securities Registry (Registro de Valores) or in the Foreign Securities Registry (Registro de Valores Extranjeros) kept by the Superintendencia de Valores y Seguros of Chile ("SVS"), which are, therefore, not subject to the supervision of the SVS.

The securities may not be publicly offered as long as they are not registered in the corresponding Securities Registry kept by the SVS.
