Latest Hardman report. CITY OF LONDON INVESTMENT GROUP Boost from positive markets and deal completion City of London has announced a trading statement covering its first quarter FUM and financial performance. With the Karpus merger taking place on 1 October, all figures refer to the pre-transaction entity. Markets were very supportive over the quarter, with a smaller offset from net outflows. At the quarter-end, FUM were $5.94bn, an increase of 8% on the $5.50bn at the financial year-end. Fund performance was good in the main strategies, with Frontier being the exception. It was also the source of the majority of the outflows, as the largest client reallocated away from the sector. ► Operations: Operational performance was slightly above our expectations, with revenue margin constant at 74bps and “fixed” costs still at £1.1m per month. The balance of the £1.8m exceptional expenses for Karpus (which are not tax deductible) reduced profit after tax to £1.0m for the quarter. ► Karpus completion: As expected, completion was on 1 October. Karpus client servicing has done a good job of getting approvals and 98% of client assets have been retained. The net result is that FUM at completion were $3.6bn, bringing the group total to $9.5bn. ► Valuation: The 2021E P/E of 9.5x is at a discount to the peer group. The underlying 2021E yield of 8.1% is attractive in our view and should provide support for the shares in the current markets. ► Risks: Although emerging markets can be volatile, City of London has proved to be more robust than some other EM fund managers, aided by its good performance and strong client servicing. Further EM volatility could raise the risk of such outflows, although increasing diversification is also mitigating this. ► Investment summary: Having shown robust performance in challenging market conditions, City of London is now reaping the benefits in a more supportive environment. The valuation remains reasonable. After a special dividend in FY’19, FY’20 saw another dividend increase. With the expected EPS boost from Karpus in 2021, the prospects for future dividend increases look very good. https://www.hardmanandco.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/201013-Hardman-CLIG-Boost-from-positive-markets-and-deal-completion.pdf

Zeus- 1Q trading update What’s new: City of London Investment Group (“CLIG”) has released an impressive trading update to 30 September 2020, which includes comment on City of London Investment Management (“CLIM”) 1Q post tax profits, client assets (FUM & AUM) at period end and CLIG’s acquisition of KMI that completed last Thursday. § 8% rise in CLIM’s FUM to US$5,935m (30/6/20: US$5,503m) which is a 4.5% rise in Sterling value of FUM from £4.4bn to £4.6bn; § Outperformance of all CLIM investment strategies, except Frontier (< 3% of FUM) where discounts widened; § Net outflows of US$83m were 1.5% of opening CLIM FUM: US$107m flowing out of Frontier and US$39m net inflows to Emerging Market strategies; § 17% rise in CLIM’s 1Q post-tax profit before exceptionals to £2.8m (2019: £2.4m) with £1.8m exceptional costs of KMI acquisition PAT are circa £1.0m; § Acquisition of KMI with AUM of US$3.6bn completed on 1 October 2020, with 98% of client assets transferred on acquisition; § Group manages US$ 9.5bn of client assets, as of 1 October 2020; CLIG’s 20p final DPS, is subject to approval at AGM on 19 October. Zeus view: CLIG’s 1Q results are consistent with our forecasts for 2021E and 2022E (see pages 2 to 5), which include the KMI acquisition from 1 October 2020. We draw attention to the following points: § Post KMI, only 44% of Group client assets are invested in emerging markets; § KMI AuM of US$3.6bn (£2.8bn using $1.29: £1 exchange rate) is ahead of our previous estimate of US$3.4bn (£2.7bn using a $1.25: £1 exchange rate); § Sterling has strengthened from US$1.25 = £1 to a high of US$1.33 and is now US$1.29. In future we expect Client assets will be less sensitive to equity market movements. In FY22 with a full year from KMI, we see CLIG delivering 47.1p adj EPS and the Group paying a 32p dividend. Our forecasts continue to show CLIG’s net cash of £20m in June 2021 and £30m in June 2022. Valuation: On our FY21 forecasts, at 435p CLIG shares trade on only 9.6x current year EPS and offer investors a 6.9% dividend yield. With a full year contribution from KMI in FY22 the PER falls to 9.2x and dividend yield rises to 7.4%.

FUM up by 7.3%. Dividend up by 10%. As at 30th September 2020, FuM were US$5.9bn (£4.6bn). This compares with US$5.5bn (£4.4bn) at the Company's year-end on 30th June 2020. IM Performance Performance was ahead of the benchmark over the quarter in all strategies ex-Frontier. Specifically, in the Emerging Market (EM) strategy NAV performances were positive. In both the International (INTL) and Opportunistic Value (OV) strategies relative returns were driven by strong NAV performance and positive discount effects. The Frontier strategy was negatively impacted via sharply wider discounts. The EM strategy had net inflows of US$39 million, while the Frontier strategy had outflows of US$107 million over the period. Net flows were flat for the INTL and OV strategies. Operations The Group's income currently accrues at a weighted average rate of approximately 74 basis points of FuM. "Fixed" costs are c. £1.1mn per month, and accordingly the current run-rate for operating profit, before profit-share of 30% is approximately £1.7m per month based upon current FuM and a US$/£ exchange rate of US$1.29 to £1 as at 30th September 2020. The Group estimates that the post-tax profit before exceptional items of c. £1.8m in relation to the KMI merger for the first three months of the year will be approximately £2.8m (2019: £2.4m) and post-tax profit after charging the exceptional items as detailed above for the first three months of the year will be approximately £1.0m (2019: £2.4m). Dividends The final dividend of 20 pence per share, subject to approval at the AGM on 19th October 2020, will be paid on 30th October 2020, bringing the total dividend for the financial year 2019-20 to 30 pence (2018-19: 40.5 pence, including the special dividend of 13.5 pence paid in March 2019). Update on Merger of CLIG with KMI As previously announced, CLIG completed the merger with Karpus Management Inc ("KMI") on 1st October 2020 (the "Completion Date"). KMI's client approval process resulted in approximately 98% of client assets being retained. As at 30th September 2020, KMI had US$3.6bn of FuM. On a consolidated basis, as of 1st October 2020, the Group managed client assets of approximately US$9.5bn.
