Registration Number 393802. Registered Office as above.

Capitalised terms used in this notice shall have the same meaning ascribed to them in the latest version of the prospectus of the Company (the "Prospectus") unless the context otherwise requires. The Board of Directors has resolved to delist and close certain Sub-Funds structured as ETFs that have demonstrated sustained small levels of demand, while focusing on key areas of growth, thereby better serving the needs of investors, with the intention of bringing the range of sub-funds of the Company in line with current and future investor demand. If, after reading this announcement you have further questions then please do not hesitate to contact the db x-trackers ETF hotline on +44 (20) 7547 1747 or +49 (69) 910 30549. Termination of the Sub-Funds The total net assets of each of the Sub-Funds is below the Minimum Fund Size provided in the relevant supplement of the Sub-Funds and the Board of Directors considers that it is unlikely that the assets under management for the Sub-Funds will increase adequately in the near future. Consequently, and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the articles of association of the Company (the "Articles") and Prospectus, the Board of Directors has resolved to: i. cancel the listing of the Sub-Funds and the right of the Sub-Funds to be traded on the relevant stock exchange with effect from 6 August 2013; and ii. terminate the Sub-Funds with effect from 9 August 2013 (the “Termination Date”) and to proceed with the compulsory repurchase of all outstanding Shares of the Sub-Funds. Requests for repurchase or subscription for Shares in the Sub-Funds may be made in the usual manner in accordance with the Prospectus prior to 6 August 2013. The following terms and conditions of such compulsory repurchase have been determined in accordance with clause 11 of appendix II of the Articles and shall apply as of the Termination Date: 1. each Sub-Fund shall be liquidated and the Repurchase Price for each Class of Shares of each of the Sub-Funds will be determined by reference to the Net Asset Value of the respective Class of Shares of each Sub-Fund as of the Termination Date (the "Reference NAV"). The Reference NAV will take into account, amongst other expenses, all costs resulting from the anticipated realisation and liquidation of the remaining investments of each Sub-Fund; 2. no Repurchase Charge will be applied; 3. the Repurchase Proceeds will be paid in the relevant Base Currency; 4. the payment of the Repurchase Proceeds resulting from the compulsory repurchase will take place at the latest on 23 August 2013 (the “Payment Date”); and 5. following the payment of the Repurchase Proceeds in respect of each Sub-Fund, application will be made to the Central Bank of Ireland for revocation of approval of each Sub-Fund. Shareholders who subscribe or repurchase Shares in any of the Sub-Funds on the primary market are entitled to repurchase their Shares in any of the Sub-Funds in accordance with the Prospectus. Please note that the Company does not charge any repurchase fee for the sale of Shares in the secondary market. Orders to sell Shares through a stock exchange can be placed via an authorised intermediary or stockbroker. However, Shareholders should note that orders in the secondary market may incur costs over which the Company has no control and to which the above disapplication of the Repurchase Charge does not apply. Any further information in relation to the termination of the Sub-Funds may be obtained from the offices of foreign representatives or by sending an email to email@example.com. Shareholders should consult their own professional advisers as to the specific tax implications of the termination under the laws of the countries of their nationality, residence, domicile or incorporation. If you have any queries or if any of the above is not clear you should seek advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant or other independent financial advisor.
