Dear Forager Australian Shares Fund Investor,


As the Investment Manager of the listed Forager Australian Shares Fund (FOR or Fund), I am pleased to announce a rights offer to FOR investors.

The Trust Company (RE Services) Limited (Responsible Entity or Perpetual) in its capacity as the responsible entity for the Fund is undertaking a 1 for 6 pro-rata non-renounceable rights issue offer (Offer). Eligible investors may also apply for additional units.

Since Forager started the Fund in October 2009, we have indicated that the investment strategy’s natural capacity limit is $200m. When the Fund was listed in December 2016 we reconfirmed this limit and today continue to believe this is the case.

Currently FOR has $156m in funds under management. If the additional funds are raised, the Fund will be well capitalised to take advantage of opportunities but will sit comfortably below the $200m limit.

Please read the Offer Document. If you have any questions please contact the Forager Australian Shares Fund Offer Information Line on 1800 132 875 (within Australia) or +61 1800 132 875 (from outside Australia). Alternatively, please feel free to call Forager on 02 8305 6050.

Thank you for your ongoing support and interest.

Yours sincerely,




Steve Johnson
Chief Investment Officer and Director
Forager Funds Management
