Revision of asset management fee structure more aligned with unitholder interests

The Investment Corporation and the Asset Management Company amend Articles of Incorporation at the General Meeting of Unitholders held on September 27, 2019 and revise fee structure from the Period ending June 2020 in order to introduce asset management fee structure more aligned with unitholder interests. By decreasing management fees based on total assets and income before income taxes and establishing a new management fee based on earnings per unit, the linkage with earnings per unit has increased. Also, the Investment Corporation repealed fee on sale to prevent fee being charged even in the case of the sale of property that is detrimental to the interests of unitholders because a loss on sale is recognized.

Independence of the Asset Management Company

Given that the Asset Management Company was established as an independent asset management company, all its members are proper employees and CRE is not involved in their recruitment or personnel evaluation.
