It is DSM’s policy that all proxies are to be voted solely in the best interests of the beneficial owners of the securities.  DSM’s proxy voting policy may be amended from time to time.  

DSM has a Proxy Voting Committee that administers DSM’s proxy voting policy.  The Proxy Voting Committee meets as necessary to discuss proxy issues.  

DSM has contracted with an independent third party (currently, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc.) (the “Third Party Administrator”) to provide issue analysis and vote recommendations with respect to proxy proposals.  The Third Party Administrator will coordinate with each client’s custodian to help ensure that proxy materials reviewed by the custodians are processed in a timely fashion.

Each year, the Third-Party Administrator undertakes a process to update the policies that inform its proxy voting recommendations.  Typically, the Third-Party Administrator has a policy formulation process that collects feedback from a diverse range of market participants through multiple channels: an annual policy survey of institutional investors and corporate issuers, roundtables with industry groups, and ongoing feedback during proxy season.  The Third-Party Administrator uses this input to develop draft policy updates on various governance issues, which are then published for open review and comment. This information is also available at  Updates and revisions by the Third-Party Administrator are reviewed by DSM to determine whether they are consistent with its principals.  Because the Third-Party Administrator conducts issue analysis and makes vote recommendations based on its independent, objective analysis, the proxy voting process is designed to cast votes in the best interests of DSM’s clients. 

While it is DSM’s policy to follow the vote recommendations of the Third-Party Administrator, DSM retains the authority to vote differently than the recommendation on any proxy proposal.  However, this action is subject to an internal approval process, which includes a determination that the proxy decision is not influenced by any conflicts of interest.  In instances in which the Third-Party Administrator is unable to make a vote recommendation, DSM’s Proxy Voting Committee will, based on such advice as it deems necessary, determine the manner in which, if at all, to vote such proxy. 

Additionally, an analysis of proxy issues and vote recommendations will be provided, or be made available, to DSM, by the Third-Party Administrator.  The Proxy Voting Committee will notify the Third-Party Administrator of any changes to the DSM policy voting policy or any deviations thereof.
