Events during the month

  * The value of East Capital Explorer's holding in Russian fashion retailer
    Melon Fashion Group (MFG) was depreciated by EUR 8.5m or 12%, corresponding
    to the decline of the ruble against the euro since December 2013, when the
    most recent external valuation of MFG was made. The holding is thereby
    valued at EUR 62.0m. The underlying growth and profitability forecasts that
    the valuation is based on, are however unchanged
  * On 20 February, the Board of East Capital Explorer announced that it
    convenes an Extraordinary General Meeting on March 24 to resolve upon the
    introduction of a new class of shares, preference shares, and to authorize
    the Board to issue such shares. The purpose of the proposal is to give East
    Capital Explorer the financial flexibility to take advantage of attractive
    investment opportunities in assets that are expected to generate strong cash
    flow and good growth. The two main areas of focus for new investment are
    Baltic real estate and the Russian and Baltic consumer sector
  * On February 20, the company also announced that it will be covered by the
    new EU directive for alternative investment fund managers (AIFMD), which is
    currently being implemented across the EU in order to strengthen the
    financial system and increase investor protection. For East Capital
    Explorer, this will mean increased supervision and licensing requirements as
    well as certain changes to the internal organization, by moving holdings
    from Sweden to Luxembourg. Management estimates that adaptions to the new
    requirements will be significantly helped by leveraging the existing
    organization and resources of the East Capital Group, as an already
    supervised entity in both Sweden and Luxembourg

1) The value change calculation is adjusted for investments and distributions
during the period, i.e. it is the percentage change between the starting value
plus any added investment during the period and the ending value plus any
proceeds from divestments or dividends received during the period

2) Due to the ongoing liquidation of East European Debt Finance, this holding is
no longer separately reported but included in short-term investments as the
remaining assets are limited and are expected to be divested in 2014
