Events during the month

  * The Russian stock market recovered significantly in May, with the RTS index
    (EUR) gaining 11.6%, thus outperforming the other markets in the region. The
    index has rebounded around 25% since its low in mid-March, but is
    nevertheless down almost 10% year-to-date. East Capital Russia Domestic
    Growth Fund (100% Russia) gained 20.8% in May and East Capital Deep Value
    Fund (around 32% Russia) gained 5.2%. The de-escalation of the crisis in
    Ukraine in combination with large energy deals supported the Russian stock
    market and the currency. Many domestic oriented stocks rebounded sharply on
    the improved sentiment, currency appreciation and company specific news.
  * On 27 May, East Capital Explorer acquired Vilnius Business Harbour, an A
    Class office complex in the central business district of Vilnius, and a
    neighboring land plot. The acquisition was made as a direct investment, and
    the total purchase price amounted to EUR 61.6m, corresponding to a yield of
    approximately 7%. Of the total amount, the equity commitment of EUR 22.3m
    (the fair value in the NAV report) and the transaction costs were paid in
    cash, while the rest is financed through bank loans. This acquisition is in
    line with East Capital Explorer's increasingly focused investment strategy
    with a growing part of Private Equity and Real Estate investments, and it
    will contribute positively to the portfolio's cash flow.
  * East Capital Special Opportunities Fund II has, as a result of the
    previously announced planned liquidation, successfully divested 88% of its
    portfolio and will subsequently distribute approximately EUR 17.6m to East
    Capital Explorer around 13 June. The remaining part of the Fund's assets is
    expected to be paid out during the autumn of 2014.

 1) The value change calculation is adjusted for investments, divestments 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 and East
 Capital Specials Opportunities Fund II, these holdings are no longer
 separately reported but included in short-term investments as the remaining
 assets are limited and are expected to be divested in 2014
