Resolutions of the Board of Directors of

Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp.

adopted on June 27, 2013

Approval of Fidelity Bond

WHEREAS, Section 17(g) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), and Rule 17g-1(a) thereunder, require each business development company (a “BDC”), such as Fifth Street Finance Corp. (the “Company”), to provide and maintain a bond which shall be issued by a reputable fidelity insurance company, authorized to do business in the place where the bond is issued, to protect the BDC against larceny and embezzlement, covering each officer and employee of the BDC who may singly, or jointly with others, have access to the securities or funds of the BDC, either directly or through authority to draw upon such funds of, or to direct generally, the disposition of such securities, unless the officer or employee has such access solely through his position as an officer or employee of a bank (each, a “covered person”); and

WHEREAS, Rule 17g-1 specifies that the bond may be in the form of (i) an individual bond for each covered person, or a schedule or blanket bond covering such persons, (ii) a blanket bond which names the Company as the only insured (a “single insured bond”), or (iii) a bond which names the Company and one or more other parties as insureds in a joint insured bond as permitted by Rule 17g-1; and

WHEREAS, Rule 17g-1 requires that a majority of directors who are not “interested persons” of the BDC, as such term is defined under the 1940 Act (the “Disinterested Directors”), approve periodically (but not less than once every 12 months) the reasonableness of the form and amount of the bond, with due consideration to the value of the aggregate assets of the Company to which any covered person may have access, the type and terms of the arrangements made for the custody and safekeeping of such assets, and the nature of securities and other investments to be held by the Company, and pursuant to factors contained in Rule 17g-1 which are described in the accompanying memorandum attached hereto as Exhibit A; and

WHEREAS, under Rule 17g-1, the Company is required to make certain filings with the SEC and give certain notices (if applicable) to each member of the board of directors (the “Board of Directors”) in connection with the bond, and designate an officer who shall make such filings and give such notices (if applicable); and

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors, including all of the Disinterested Directors, have received and reviewed a copy of a term sheet including the material terms of the proposed joint fidelity bond issued by National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA, a reputable fidelity insurance company, in an amount equal to $5,000,000 (the “Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond”), which provides fidelity bond coverage for the Company and Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp., attached hereto as Exhibit B; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors, including all of the Disinterested Directors, have considered the expected aggregate value of the securities and funds of the Company to which officers and employees of the Company may have access (either directly or through authority to draw upon such funds or to direct generally the disposition of such securities), the type and terms of the arrangements made for the custody of such securities and funds, the nature of securities and other investments to be held by the Company, the accounting procedures and controls of the Company, the nature and method of conducting the operations of the Company, the requirements of Section 17(g) of the 1940 Act and Rule 17g-1 thereunder, and all other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors, including such Disinterested Directors;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Board of Directors, including all of the Disinterested Directors, that, having considered the expected aggregate value of the securities and funds of the Company to which officers and employees of the Company may have access (either directly or through authority to draw upon such funds or to direct generally the disposition of such securities), the type and terms of the arrangements made for the custody of such securities and funds, the nature of securities and other investments to be held by the Company, the accounting procedures and controls of the Company, the nature and method of conducting the operations of the Company, and the requirements of Section 17(g) of the 1940 Act and Rule 17g-1 thereunder, and all other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors, including such Disinterested Directors, the amount, type, form, and


coverage of the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond covering the officers and employees of the Company and insuring the Company against loss from fraudulent or dishonest acts, including larceny and embezzlement, issued by National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA, having an aggregate coverage of $5,000,000, is fair and reasonable; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, by the Board of Directors, including all of the Disinterested Directors, that, having considered the number of other parties named as insured, the nature of the business activities of such other joint insureds, the amount of the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond, the amount of the premium, the ratable allocation of such premium among all parties named as insureds, and the extent to which the share of premium allocated to the Company is less than the premium the Company would have had to pay if it had provided and maintained a single insured bond, the proposed premium for the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond to be allocated to the Company is fair and reasonable; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, by the Board of Directors, including all of the Disinterested Directors, that the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond, including the portion of the premium to be paid by the Company, be, and hereby is, approved; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Authorized Officers (defined below) of the Company be, and each of them hereby is, authorized and directed to cause the Company to pay its ratable allocation of the annual premium payable with respect to the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond and to enter into and execute, on behalf of the Company, an agreement reflecting the provisions of the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond and relating to the division of proceeds in the event of a joint fidelity loss, as required by Rule 17g-1(f) (the “Joint Insured Bond Allocation Agreement”); and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the terms and conditions of the Joint Insured Bond Allocation Agreement, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, be, and hereby are, approved and adopted in all respects, with such amendments thereto as an Authorized Officer may approve, and with approval of such further amendments evidenced by their inclusion in the Joint Insured Bond Allocation Agreement; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, by the Board of Directors, including all of the Disinterested Directors, that the Authorized Officers be, and hereby are, authorized by and on behalf of the Company to negotiate, execute and deliver such documents or agreements as may be necessary to cause the Proposed Joint Fidelity Bond to be issued by National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA.; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Chief Compliance Officer of the Company be and hereby is, designated as the party responsible for making the necessary filings and giving the notices with respect to such bond required by paragraph (g) of Rule 17g-1 under the 1940 Act; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Authorized Officers be, and each of them hereby is, authorized, empowered and directed, in the name and on behalf of the Company, to make or cause to be made, and to execute and deliver, all such additional agreements, documents, instruments and certifications and to take all such steps, and to make all such payments, fees and remittances, as any one or more of such officers may at any time or times deem necessary or desirable in order to effectuate the purpose and intent of the foregoing resolutions; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that any and all actions previously taken by the Company or any of its directors, Authorized Officers or other employees in connection with the documents, and actions contemplated by the foregoing resolutions be, and they hereby are, ratified, confirmed, approved and adopted in all respects as and for the acts and deeds of the Company; and

FURTHER RESOLVED, that for the purposes of the foregoing resolutions, the Authorized Officers of the Company shall be the Chief Executive Officer, the President, the Chief Financial Officer, the Chief Investment Officer, the Chief Compliance Officer and the Secretary of the Company (the “Authorized Officers”).

AGREEMENT REGARDING THE ALLOCATION OF

FIDELITY BOND RECOVERIES

THIS AGREEMENT is made as of August 5, 2013, by and among Fifth Street Finance Corp. and Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp. (each, an “Insured,” and, together, the “Insureds”), each acting on behalf of itself.

WHEREAS, each Insured is a closed-end management investment company which has elected to be regulated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”); and

WHEREAS, each of the Insureds is named as an insured party under a joint fidelity bond (the “Bond”); and

WHEREAS, the Insureds desire to confirm the criteria by which recoveries under the Bond shall be allocated between the Insureds;

NOW, THEREFORE, it is agreed as follows:

 

1. In the event that recovery is received under the Bond as a result of a loss sustained by more than one Insured, the following rules shall apply for determining the priorities for satisfaction of such claims under the Bond:

 

  a. First, each Insured shall receive an equitable and proportionate share of the recovery, but at least equal to the amount it would have received had it provided and maintained a single insured bond with the minimum coverage required under Rule 17g-1(d)(1) under the 1940 Act; and

 

  b. Second, the remaining amount of recovery, if any, shall then be applied to each claim of each Insured in proportion to the amount of the unreimbursed loss in excess of such minimums incurred by each Insured.

 

2. The obligations of an Insured under this Agreement are not binding upon any of the board members of an Insured or Insured shareholders individually, but are binding only with respect to the assets of that Insured.

[Remainder of Page Intentionally Left Blank]


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the insured parties have caused this Agreement to be executed by their respective officers thereunto duly authorized.

EXHIBIT C

I have examined the Fidelity Bond limit requirements, as prescribed in Rule 17g-1 for the parties insured under National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Bond No. 01-600-58-41. This limits analysis is based upon the total asset value of each registrant as stated in the relevant renewal application.

The results of the analysis are as follows:

 

Registrant

   Asset value      Required
Limit
 

Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp.(1)

   $ 100,001,520       $ 525,000   

Fifth Street Finance Corp.(2)

   $ 1,896,848,000       $ 1,500,000   
     Total Limit:       $ 2,025,000   

 

(1) As of July 17, 2013, the date Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp. completed its initial public offering.
(2) As of June 30, 2013.

As you are aware, the limit under the current bond is $5,000,000. Therefore, according to these calculations, the bond amount is sufficient to meet requirements of Rule 17g-1.

 

Sincerely,

B. WARRANTY

No statement made by or on behalf of the Insured, whether contained in the application or otherwise, shall be deemed to be a warranty of anything except that it is true to the best of the knowledge and belief of the person making the statement.

 

C. COURT COSTS AND ATTORNEYS’ FEES

(Applicable to all Insuring Agreements or Coverages now or hereafter forming part of this bond)

The Underwriter will indemnify the Insured against court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred and paid by the Insured in defense, whether or not successful, whether or not fully litigated on the merits and whether or not settled of any suit or legal proceeding brought against the Insured to enforce the Insured’s liability or alleged liability on account of any loss, claim or damage which, if established against the Insured, would constitute a loss sustained by the Insured covered under the terms of this bond provided, however, that with respect to Insuring Agreement (A) this indemnity shall apply only in the event that

 

  (1) an Employee admits to being guilty of any dishonest or fraudulent act(s), including Larceny or Embezzlement; or

 

  (2) an Employee is adjudicated to be guilty of any dishonest or fraudulent act(s), including Larceny or Embezzlement;

 

  (3) in the absence of (1) or (2) above an arbitration panel agrees, after a review of an agreed statement of facts, that an Employee would be found guilty of dishonesty if such Employee were prosecuted.

 

The Insured shall promptly give notice to the Underwriter of any such suit or legal proceeding and at the request of the Underwriter shall furnish it with copies of all pleadings and other papers therein. At the Underwriter’s election the Insured shall permit the Underwriter to conduct the defense of such suit or legal proceeding, in the Insured’s name, through attorneys of the Underwriter’s selection. In such event, the Insured shall give all reasonable information and assistance which the Underwriter shall deem necessary to the proper defense of such suit or legal proceeding.

If the amount of the Insured’s liability or alleged liability is greater than the amount recoverable under this bond, or if a Deductible Amount is applicable, or both, the liability of the Underwriter under this General Agreement is limited to the proportion of court costs and attorneys’ fees incurred and paid by the Insured or by the Underwriter that the amount recoverable under this bond bears to the total of such amount plus the amount which is not so recoverable. Such indemnity shall be in addition to the Limit of Liability for the applicable Insuring Agreement or Coverage.

SECTION 4. LOSS -NOTICE -PROOF- LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

This bond is for the use and benefit only of the Insured named in the Declarations and the Underwriter shall not be liable hereunder for loss sustained by anyone other than the Insured unless the Insured, in its sole discretion and at its option, shall include such loss in the Insured’s proof of loss. At the earliest practicable moment after discovery of any loss hereunder the Insured shall give the Underwriter written notice thereof and shall also within six months after such discovery furnish to the Underwriter affirmative proof of loss with full particulars. If claim is made under this bond for loss of securities or shares, the Underwriter shall not be liable unless each

 

 

 

12


of such securities or shares is identified in such proof of loss by a certificate or bond number or, where such securities or shares are uncertificated, by such identification means as agreed to by the Underwriter. The Underwriter shall have thirty days after notice and proof of loss within which to investigate the claim, but where the loss is clear and undisputed, settlement shall be made within forty-eight hours; and this shall apply notwithstanding the loss is made up wholly or in part of securities of which duplicates may be obtained. Legal proceedings for recovery of any loss hereunder shall not be brought prior to the expiration of sixty days after such proof of loss is filed with the Underwriter nor after the expiration of twenty-four months from the discovery of such loss, except that any action or proceeding to recover hereunder on account of any judgment against the Insured in any suit mentioned in General Agreement C or to recover attorneys’ fees paid in any such suit, shall be begun within twenty-four months from the date upon which the judgment in such suit shall become final. If any limitation embodied in this bond is prohibited by any law controlling the construction hereof, such limitation shall be deemed to be amended so as to be equal to the minimum period of limitation permitted by such law.

Discovery occurs when the Insured

 

  (a) becomes aware of facts, or

 

  (b) receives written notice of an actual or potential claim by a third party which alleges that the Insured is liable under circumstance

which would cause a reasonable person to assume that a loss covered by the bond has been or will be incurred even though the exact amount or details of loss may not be then known.

SECTION 5. VALUATION OF PROPERTY

The value of any Property, except books of accounts or other records used by the Insured in the conduct of its business, for the loss of which a claim shall be made hereunder, shall be determined by the average market value of such Property on the business day next preceding the discovery of such loss; provided, however, that the value of any Property replaced by the Insured prior to the payment of claim therefor shall be the actual market value at the time of replacement; and further provided that in case of a loss or misplacement of interim certificates, warrants, rights, or other securities, the production which is necessary to the exercise of subscription, conversion, redemption or deposit privileges, the value thereof shall be the market value of such privileges immediately preceding the expiration thereof if said loss or misplacement is not discovered until after their expiration. If no market price is quoted for such Property or for such privileges, the value shall be fixed by agreement between the parties or by arbitration.

In case of any loss or damage to Property consisting of books of accounts or other records used by the Insured in the conduct of its business, the Underwriter shall be liable under this bond only if such books or records are actually reproduced and then for not more than the cost of blank books, blank pages or other materials plus the cost of labor for the actual transcription or copying of data which shall have been furnished by the Insured in order to reproduce such books and other records.

SECTION 6. VALUATION OF PREMISES AND FURNISHINGS

In case of damage to any office of the Insured, or loss of or damage to the furnishings, fixtures, stationery, supplies, equipment, safes or vaults therein, the Underwriter shall not be liable for more than the actual cash value thereof, or for more than the actual cost of their replacement or

 

 

 

13


repair. The Underwriter may, at its election, pay such actual cash value or make such replacement or repair. If the Underwriter and the Insured cannot agree upon such cash value or such cost of replacement or repair, such shall be determined by arbitration.

SECTION 7. LOST SECURITIES

If the Insured shall sustain a loss of securities the total value of which is in excess of the limit stated in Item 3 of the Declarations of this bond, the liability of the Underwriter shall be limited to payment for, or duplication of, securities having value equal to the limit stated in Item 3 of the Declarations of this bond.

If the Underwriter shall make payment to the Insured for any loss of securities, the Insured shall thereupon assign to the Underwriter all of the Insured’s rights, title and interests in and to said securities.

With respect to securities the value of which do not exceed the Deductible Amount (at the time of the discovery of the loss) and for which the Underwriter may at its sole discretion and option and at the request of the Insured issue a Lost Instrument Bond or Bonds to effect replacement thereof, the Insured will pay the usual premium charged therefor and will indemnify the Underwriter against all loss or expense that the Underwriter may sustain because of the issuance of such Lost Instrument Bond or Bonds.

With respect to securities the value of which exceeds the Deductible Amount (at the time of discovery of the loss) and for which the Underwriter may issue or arrange for the issuance of a Lost Instrument Bond or Bonds to effect replacement thereof, the Insured agrees that it will pay as premium therefor a proportion of the usual premium charged therefor, said proportion being equal to the percentage that the Deductible Amount bears to the value of the securities upon discovery of the loss, and that it will indemnify the issuer of said Lost Instrument Bond or Bonds against all loss and expense that is not recoverable from the Underwriter under the

terms and conditions of this INVESTMENT COMPANY BLANKET BOND subject to the Limit of Liability hereunder.

SECTION 8. SALVAGE

In case of recovery, whether made by the Insured or by the Underwriter, on account of any loss in excess of the Limit of Liability hereunder plus the Deductible Amount applicable to such loss from any source other than suretyship, insurance, reinsurance, security or indemnity taken by or for the benefit of the Underwriter, the net amount of such recovery, less the actual costs and expenses of making same, shall be applied to reimburse the Insured in full for the excess portion of such loss, and the remainder, if any, shall be paid first in reimbursement of the Underwriter and thereafter in reimbursement of the Insured for that part of such loss within the Deductible Amount. The Insured shall execute all necessary papers to secure to the Underwriter the rights provided for herein.

SECTION 9. NON-REDUCTION AND NON- ACCUMULATION OF LIABILITY AND TOTAL LIABILITY

At all times prior to termination hereof this bond shall continue in force for the limit stated in the applicable sections of Item 3 of the Declarations of this bond notwithstanding any previous loss for which the Underwriter may have paid or be liable to pay hereunder; PROVIDED, however, that regardless of the number of years this bond shall continue in force and the number of premiums which shall be payable or paid, the liability of the Underwriter under this bond with respect to all loss resulting from

 

  (a) any one act of burglary, robbery or holdup, or attempt thereat, in which no Partner or Employee is concerned or implicated shall be deemed to be one loss, or
 

 

 

14


  (b) any one unintentional or negligent act on the part of any one person resulting in damage to or destruction or misplacement of Property, shall be deemed to be one loss, or

 

  (c) all wrongful acts, other than those specified in (a) above, of any one person shall be deemed to be one loss, or

 

  (d) all wrongful acts, other than those specified in (a) above, of one or more persons (which dishonest act(s) or act(s) of Larceny or Embezzlement include, but are not limited to, the failure of an Employee to report such acts of others) whose dishonest act or acts intentionally or unintentionally, knowingly or unknowingly, directly or indirectly, aid or aids in any way, or permits the continuation of, the dishonest act or acts of any other person or persons shall be deemed to be one loss with the act or acts of the persons aided, or

 

  (e) any one casualty or event other than those specified in (a), (b), (c) or (d) preceding, shall be deemed to be one loss, and

shall be limited to the applicable Limit of Liability stated in Item 3 of the Declarations of this bond irrespective of the total amount of such loss or losses and shall not be cumulative in amounts from year to year or from period to period.

Sub-section (c) is not applicable to any situation to which the language of sub-section (d) applies.

SECTION 10. LIMIT OF LIABILITY

With respect to any loss set forth in the PROVIDED clause of Section 9 of this bond which is recoverable or recovered in whole or in part under any other bonds or policies issued by the Underwriter to the Insured or to any predecessor in interest of the Insured and terminated or cancelled or allowed to expire

and in which the period for discovery has not expired at the time any such loss thereunder is discovered, the total liability of the Underwriter under this bond and under other bonds or policies shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the amount carried hereunder on such loss or the amount available to the Insured under such other bonds or policies, as limited by the terms and conditions thereof, for any such loss if the latter amount be the larger.

SECTION 11. OTHER INSURANCE

If the Insured shall hold, as indemnity against any loss covered hereunder, any valid and enforceable insurance or suretyship, the Underwriter shall be liable hereunder only for such amount of such loss which is in excess of the amount of such other insurance or suretyship, not exceeding, however, the Limit of Liability of this bond applicable to such loss.

SECTION 12. DEDUCTIBLE

The Underwriter shall not be liable under any of the Insuring Agreements of this bond on account of loss as specified, respectively, in sub-sections (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) of Section 9, NON-REDUCTION AND NON- ACCUMULATION OF LIABILITY AND TOTAL LIABILITY, unless the amount of such loss, after deducting the net amount of all reimbursement and/or recovery obtained or made by the Insured, other than from any bond or policy of insurance issued by an insurance company and covering such loss, or by the Underwriter on account thereof prior to payment by the Underwriter of such loss, shall exceed the Deductible Amount set forth in Item 3 of the Declarations hereof (herein called Deductible Amount) and then for such excess only, but in no event for more than the applicable Limit of Liability stated in Item 3 of the Declarations.

 

 

 

15


The Insured will bear, in addition to the Deductible Amount, premiums on Lost Instrument Bonds as set forth in Section 7.

There shall be no deductible applicable to any loss under Insuring Agreement A sustained by any Investment Company named as Insured herein.

The Underwriter shall refund the unearned premium computed at short rates in accordance with the standard short rate cancellation tables if terminated by the Insured or pro rata if terminated for any other reason.

  This Bond shall terminate

 

  (a) as to any Employee as soon as any partner, officer or supervisory Employee of the Insured, who is not in collusion with such Employee, shall learn of any dishonest or fraudulent act(s), including Larceny or Embezzlement on the part of such Employee without prejudice to the loss of any Property then in transit in the custody of such Employee (See Section 16[d]), or

 

  (b) as to any Employee 60 days after receipt by each Insured and by the Securities and Exchange Commission of a written notice from the Underwriter of its desire to terminate this bond as to such Employee, or

 

  (c) as to any person, who is a partner, officer or employee of any Electronic Data Processor covered under this bond, from and after the time that the Insured or any partner or officer thereof not in collusion with such person shall have knowledge or information that such person has committed any dishonest or fraudulent act(s), including Larceny or Embezzlement in the service of the Insured or otherwise, whether such act be committed before or after the time this bond is effective.

SECTION 14. RIGHTS AFTER TERMINATION OR CANCELLATION

At any time prior to the termination or cancellation of this bond as an entirety, whether by the Insured or the Underwriter, the Insured may give to the Underwriter notice that it desires under this bond an additional period of 12 months within which to discover loss sustained by the Insured prior to the effective date of such termination or cancellation and shall pay an additional premium therefor.

 

 

 

  16   


Upon receipt of such notice from the Insured, the Underwriter shall give its written consent thereto; provided, however, that such additional period of time shall terminate immediately;

 

  (a) on the effective date of any other insurance obtained by the Insured, its successor in business or any other party, replacing in whole or in part the insurance afforded by this bond, whether or not such other insurance provides coverage for loss sustained prior to its effective date, or

 

  (b) upon takeover of the Insured’s business by any State or Federal official or agency, or by any receiver or liquidator, acting or appointed for this purpose

without the necessity of the Underwriter giving notice of such termination. In the event that such additional period of time is terminated, as provided above, the Underwriter shall refund any unearned premium.

The right to purchase such additional period for the discovery of loss may not be exercised by any State or Federal official or agency, or by any receiver or liquidator, acting or appointed to take over the Insured’s business for the operation or for the liquidation thereof or for any other purpose.

SECTION 15. CENTRAL HANDLING OF SECURITIES

Securities included in the systems for the central handling of securities established and maintained by Depository Trust Company, Midwest Depository Trust Company, Pacific Securities Depository Trust Company, and Philadelphia Depository Trust Company, hereinafter called Corporations, to the extent of the Insured’s interest therein as effective by the making of appropriate entries on the books and records of such Corporations shall be deemed to be Property.

The words “Employee” and “Employees” shall be deemed to include the officers, partners, clerks and other employees of the New York Stock Exchange, Boston Stock Exchange, Midwest Stock Exchange, Pacific Stock Ex- change and Philadelphia Stock Exchange, hereinafter called Exchanges, and of the above named Corporations, and of any nominee in whose name is registered any security included within the systems for the central handling of securities established and maintained by such Corporations, and any employee of any recognized service company, while such officers, partners, clerks and other employees and employees of service companies perform services for such Corporations in the operation of such systems.

For the purpose of determining the Insured’s share of excess loss(es) it shall be deemed that the Insured has an interest in any certificate representing any security included within such systems equivalent to the interest the Insured then has in all certificates representing the same security included within such systems and that such Corporations shall use their best judgement in apportioning the amount(s) recoverable or recovered under any bond or policy of insurance indemnifying such Corporations against such loss(es) in connection with the central handling of securities within such systems among all those having an interest as

 

 

 

  17   


recorded by appropriate entries in the books and records of such Corporations in Property involved in such loss(es) on the basis that each such interest shall share in the amount(s) so recoverable or recovered in the ratio that the value of each such interest bears to the total value of all such interests and that the Insured’s share of such excess loss(es) shall be the amount of the Insured’s interest in such Property in excess of the amount(s) so apportioned to the Insured by such Corporations.

This bond does not afford coverage in favor of such Corporations or Exchanges or any nominee in whose name is registered any security included within the systems for the central handling of securities established and maintained by such Corporations, and upon payment to the Insured by the Underwriter on account of any loss(es) within the systems, an assignment of such of the Insured’s rights and causes of action as it may have against such Corporations or Exchanges shall to the extent of such payment, be given by the Insured to the Underwriter, and the Insured shall execute all papers necessary to secure to the Underwriter the rights provided for herein.

SECTION 16. ADDITIONAL COMPANIES INCLUDED AS INSURED

If more than one corporation, co-partnership or person or any combination of them be included as the Insured herein:

 

  (a) the total liability of the Underwriter hereunder for loss or losses sustained by any one or more or all of them shall not exceed the limit for which the Underwriter would be liable hereunder if all such loss were sustained by any one of them,
  (b) the one first named herein shall be deemed authorized to make, adjust and receive and enforce payment of all claims hereunder and shall be deemed to be the agent of the others for such purposes and for the giving or receiving of any notice required or permitted to be given by the terms hereof, provided that the Underwriter shall furnish each named Investment Company with a copy of the bond and with any amendment thereto, together with a copy of each formal filing of the settlement of each such claim prior to the execution of such settlement,

 

  (c) the Underwriter shall not be responsible for the proper application of any payment made hereunder to said first named Insured,

 

  (d) knowledge possessed or discovery made by any partner, officer or supervisory Employee of any Insured shall for the purposes of Section 4 and Section 13 of this bond constitute knowledge or discovery by all the Insured, and

 

  (e) if the first named Insured ceases for any reason to be covered under this bond, then the Insured next named shall thereafter be considered as the first named Insured for the purposes of this bond.

SECTION 17. NOTICE AND CHANGE OF CONTROL

Upon the Insured’s obtaining knowledge of a transfer of its outstanding voting securities which results in a change in control (as set forth in Section 2(a) (9) of the Investment Company Act of 1940) of the Insured, the Insured shall within thirty (30) days of such knowledge give written notice to the Underwriter setting forth:

modified orally.

If more than one Investment Company is named as the Insured herein, the Underwriter shall give written notice to each Investment Company and to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington, D.C. not less than 60 days prior to the effective date of any change or modification which would adversely affect the rights of such Investment Company.

NEW YORK AMENDATORY ENDORSEMENT - NY STATUTE 3420

Wherever used in this endorsement: 1) “we”, “us”, “our” and “Insurer” mean the insurance company which issued this policy; 2) “you”, “your”, “Insured” and “first Named Insured” mean the Named Corporation, Named Entity, Named Organization, Named Sponsor, Named Insured, or Insured stated in the declarations page; 3) “other insured(s)” means all other persons or entities afforded coverage under the policy; 4) “Discovery Period” means Discovery Period or Extended Reporting Period, as defined in the policy; and 5) “Claim” means Claim or Suit as defined in the policy.

It is hereby understood and agreed that the policy is amended as follows:

 

A. The following provisions are hereby added to the policy:

FAILURE TO GIVE NOTICE WITHIN PRESCRIBED TIME:

Failure to give any notice required to be given by this policy, or any policy of which this is a renewal, within the prescribed time shall not invalidate any Claim made against an Insured if:

 

  (a) It shall be shown not to have been reasonably possible to give notice within the prescribed time and that notice was given as soon as was reasonably possible thereafter; or

 

  (b) the failure to provide timely notice has not prejudiced the Insurer

Any such Claim shall be deemed to have been first made against the Insured and noticed to the Insurer within the Policy Period or Discovery Period of the policy issued by the Insurer (the “Noticed Policy”) in which the Insurer received notice of the Claim; provided that the coverage afforded with respect to the Noticed Policy shall be in an amount not greater than the amount of coverage afforded with respect to the Policy Period of the policy issued by the Insurer (the “Former Policy”) in which the Claim was actually first made against the Insured. The foregoing sentence may result in (but not be limited to): (1) reducing the limit of liability available for such a Claim to the available limit of liability applicable to the Former Policy; (2) increasing the applicable retention amount to that retention amount applicable to the Former Policy; or (3) reducing or eliminating coverage due to exclusions or other restrictions appearing in the Former Policy but eliminated, in part or in whole, in the Noticed Policy. No coverage shall be afforded under this endorsement if there was not in existence a Former Policy at the time the Claim was actually first made against the Insured.

83231 (01/09)


ENDORSEMENT #5 (continued)

 

With respect to subsection (b) above, any such Claim must be noticed during the Policy Period or Discovery Period of a Noticed Policy which is a renewal or extension of the Former Policy.

Nothing in this endorsement shall be construed to provide coverage for a Claim under more than one Policy Period or Discovery Period.

PREJUDICE:

In the event that the Insurer alleges that it was prejudiced as a result of a failure to give notice within the time required under the policy, the burden of proof shall be on:

 

  (a) the Insurer to prove that it has been prejudiced, if the notice was provided within two years of the time required under the policy; or

 

  (b) the Insured to prove that the Insurer has not been prejudiced, if the notice was provided more than two years after the time required under the policy.

The Insurer’s rights shall not be deemed prejudiced unless the failure to timely provide notice materially impairs the ability of the Insurer to investigate or defend the Claim.

Notwithstanding the above, an irrebuttable presumption of prejudice shall apply if, prior to the notice, the Insured’s liability has been determined by a court of competent jurisdiction or by a binding arbitration; or if the Insured has resolved the Claim by settlement or other compromise.

NOTICE TO AGENT:

Notice given by or on behalf of the Insured, or written notice by or on behalf of the injured party or any other claimant, to any licensed agent of the Insurer in the state of New York, with particulars sufficient to identify the Insured, shall be deemed notice to the Insurer.

INSOLVENCY/BANKRUPTCY OF INSURED:

The insolvency or bankruptcy of the Insured shall not relieve the Insurer of its obligations under this policy as long as all policy requirements are met by Insured, its trustee or receiver in bankruptcy. Should a covered judgment be rendered against an insolvent or bankrupt Insured, the Insurer shall be liable for the amount of such judgment not to exceed the applicable limit of liability under this policy.

The Clause entitled, “ Action Against Us ” or “ Action Against Company ” is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:

 

83231 (01/09)


ENDORSEMENT #5 (continued)

 

No one may bring an action against us unless there has been full compliance with all the terms of this policy and the amount of the Insured’s obligation to pay has been finally determined either by:

 

1. judgment against the Insured which remains unsatisfied at the expiration of thirty (30) days from the service of notice of entry of the judgment upon the Insured and upon us; or

 

2. written agreement of the Insured, the claimant and us.

Any person or organization or legal representative thereof who has secured such judgment or written agreement shall thereafter be entitled to recover under this policy to the extent of the insurance afforded by this policy. We may not be impleaded by the Insured or its legal representative in any legal action brought against the Insured by any person or organization.

OTHER TERMS, CONDITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS REMAIN UNCHANGED.

LOSS-NOTICE-PROOF-LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AMENDED

In consideration of the premium charged, it is hereby understood and agreed that Section 4. of the attached bond is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:

SECTION 4. LOSS -NOTICE -PROOF-LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

This bond is for the use and benefit only of the Insured named in the Declarations and the Underwriter shall not be liable hereunder for loss sustained by anyone other than the Insured unless the Insured, in its sole discretion and at its option, shall include such loss in the Insured’s proof of loss. At the earliest practicable moment after discovery of any loss hereunder by the Insured’s department of human resources, general counsel or department of risk management, the Insured shall give the Underwriter written notice thereof and shall also within six months after such discovery furnish to the Underwriter affirmative proof of loss with full particulars. If claim is made under this bond for loss of securities or shares, the Underwriter shall not be liable unless each of such securities or shares is identified in such proof of loss by a certificate or bond number or, where such securities or shares are uncertificated, by such identification means as agreed to by the Underwriter. The Underwriter shall have thirty days after notice and proof of loss within which to investigate the claim, but where the loss is clear and undisputed, settlement shall be made within forty-eight hours; and this shall apply notwithstanding the loss is made up wholly or in part of securities of which duplicates may be obtained. Legal proceedings for recovery of any loss hereunder shall not be brought prior to the expiration of sixty days after such proof of loss is filed with the Underwriter nor after the expiration of twenty-four months from the discovery of such loss, except that any action or proceeding to recover hereunder on account of any judgment against the Insured in any suit mentioned in General Agreement C or to recover attorneys’ fees paid in any such suit, shall be begun within twenty-four months from the date upon which the judgment in such suit shall become final. If any limitation embodied in this bond is prohibited by any law controlling the construction hereof, such limitation shall be deemed to be amended so as to be equal to the minimum period of limitation permitted by such law.

Discovery occurs when the Insured’s department of human resources, general counsel or department of risk management.

 

  (a) becomes aware of facts, or


ENDORSEMENT #10 (continued)

 

  (b) receives written notice of an actual or potential claim by a third party which alleges that the Insured is liable under circumstance which would cause a reasonable person to assume that a loss covered by the bond has been or will be incurred even though the exact amount or details of loss may not be then known.

ALL OTHER TERMS, CONDITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS REMAIN UNCHANGED.

Loss resulting directly from the Insured having, in good faith, transferred or delivered Funds, Certificated Securities or Uncertificated Securities through a Computer System covered under the terms of the Computer Systems Fraud Insuring Agreement in reliance upon a fraudulent instruction received through a Telefacsimile Device, and which instruction:

 

  (1) purports and reasonably appears to have originated from

  (b) another financial institution, or

 

  (c) another office of the Insured

but, in fact, was not originated by the Customer or entity whose identification it bears;

 

  (2) contains a valid test code which proves to have been used by a person who was not authorized to make use of it; and

 

  (3) contains the name of a person authorized to initiate such transfer,

provided that, if the transfer was in excess of $50,000, the instruction was verified by a call-back according to a prearranged procedure.

  (ii) Telefacsimile Device means a machine capable of sending or receiving a duplicate image of a document by means of electronic impulses transmitted through a telephone line and which reproduces the duplicate image on paper.

4. Solely for the purpose of the TELEFACSIMILE TRANSFER FRAUD Insuring Agreement, proof of loss for a claim must include a copy of the document reproduced by the Telefacsimile Device.

 

5. Solely for the purpose of the TELEFACSIMILE TRANSFER FRAUD Insuring Agreement, exclusion (y) of Section 2. EXCLUSIONS of the CONDITIONS AND LIMITATIONS Clause is deleted in its entirety.
