India’s promise remains unchanged

We spend our lives looking at companies. Last year we saw 923 companies in Asia. Some of them come to us but the more significant activity is us visiting management in situ. In this and future monthly briefs, we aim to give a better flavour of what we are seeing, be that about companies or other aspects of investing – and which we do not cover in our routine reports.

Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

June 2014

  • Indian equities finished June with positive returns, as investors maintained a favorable view of the government leadership change and confidence grew that the upcoming budget would unveil measures to spur growth.
  • The government battled persistent food inflation, announcing it would release a quarter of its rice stockpiles, ease sales restrictions on fruit and vegetables, and set minimum export prices for potatoes and onions.
  • Additionally, the government hiked rail fares for both passengers and freight in an effort to meet the railways’ annual expenditure. Consultations are also underway to agree on the magnitude of a gas price increase.
  • During the month, we added to the Fund’s holding in IT services provider Infosys on share price weakness following the unexpected departure of possible CEO contender BG Srinivas. It was subsequently announced that former SAP executive Vishal Sikka would become Infosys’ first CEO recruited from outside the company. In our opinion, his appointment greatly reduces the uncertainty linked to the string of senior level departures; he has an excellent record and reputation for innovative thinking. As part of the leadership transition, Infosys founder Narayana Murthy stepped down as planned, although he will remain on the board until October.
  • In other Fund-related news, as part of its strategy to expand into financial services, Piramal Enterprises purchased a 10% stake in Shriram City Union Finance. Tata Consultancy Services won two contracts in Europe: to modernize Telenor Norway’s fixed-line operations and to develop Dutch insurance firm REAAL’s mainframe applications.

Section 16 Filings
 

**Disclaimer

Pursuant to valuation policies adopted by the Board of Directors of the Fund, the Fund values foreign equity securities that primarily trade in certain markets that close ahead of the Fund’s daily 4:00 pm Eastern net asset value (“NAV”) calculation time at their fair values using prices provided by third-party independent pricing services. The fair value of each such security generally is calculated by applying a valuation factor provided by the independent pricing service to the last sales price for that security, or, if, the pricing service is unable to provide a fair value for a security, at the price at the close of the exchange on which it is principally traded, subject to adjustment by the Fund’s Pricing Committee. These daily fair valuations seek to reflect information available after the local market close that may affect the value of the foreign equity securities held by the Fund. As a result, this official NAV calculation reflects adjustments that may cause it to vary from a calculation based solely on closing prices. In contrast, the “Unadjusted NAV” of the Fund (shown above) is for informational purposes only and is computed using the closing prices on the relevant exchange. It does not reflect any daily fair valuation adjustments of the Fund’s foreign securities. The Unadjusted NAV does not represent the official NAV of the Fund, nor is the Unadjusted NAV used for Fund accounting or performance purposes. Investors should not rely upon the Unadjusted NAV when making their investment decisions.
