EXCLUSION LIST| PRESIDENTIAL ORDER 13959– CHINA MILITARY COMPANIES | Latest updated 17 January 2022
On 17 December 2020, Solactive AG published a Market Consultation on the US Presidential “Executive Order on Addressing the Threat from Securities Investments that Finance Communist Chinese Military Companies”; issued on November 12, 2020 (the “ORDER”).
It was concluded (https://www.solactive.com/result-of-market-consultation-presidential-order-chinese-companies-5th-january2021/) that the ORDER will have a significant impact on the investment processes of global investors (both, U.S. investors and non-U.S. investors) with regard to the investability of the AFFECTED SECURITIES.
Given these concerns and in order to ensure that Solactive Indices remain investible Solactive AG has decided to delete the AFFECTED SECURITIES from Solactive. The removal of the AFFECTED SECURITIES will be separately announced as extraordinary corporate actions and will be applied to Solactive administered Indices.
In addition, all securities deemed as AFFECTED SECURITIES will be listed in the below exclusion list (the “EXCLUSION LIST”) and generally excluded from the index universe or starting universe, respectively, of all Solactive Indices and will not be eligible in any index selection.
