Applicants request an order exempting Applicants from section 15(a) of the Act and rule 18f–2 thereunder to permit the Trust, on behalf of a Fund, and/or its Advisor, subject to the approval of the Board, to enter into and materially amend investment subadvisory agreements with Subadvisors (‘‘Subadvisory Agreements’’) without obtaining shareholder approval.3 Applicants also seek an exemption from the Disclosure Requirements to permit a Fund to disclose (as both a dollar amount and a percentage of the Fund’s net assets): (a) The aggregate fees paid to the Advisor and any Excluded Subadvisor; and (b) the aggregate fees paid to Subadvisors other than Excluded Subadvisors (collectively, ‘‘Aggregate Fee Disclosure’’). For any Fund that employs an Excluded Subadvisor, the Fund will provide separate disclosure of any fees paid to the Excluded Subadvisor. 4. Applicants agree that any order granting the requested relief will be subject to the terms and conditions stated in the application. Such terms and conditions provide for, among other safeguards, appropriate disclosure to Fund shareholders and notification about sub-advisory changes and enhanced Board oversight to protect the interests of the Funds’ shareholders. 5. Section 6(c) of the Act provides that the Commission may exempt any person, security, or transaction or any class or classes of persons, securities, or transactions from any provisions of the Act, or any rule thereunder, if such relief is necessary or appropriate in the public interest and consistent with the protection of investors and purposes fairly intended by the policy and provisions of the Act. Applicants believe that the requested relief meets this standard because, as further explained in the application, the Advisory Agreements will remain 3 The requested relief will not extend to any subadviser who is an affiliated person, as defined in section 2(a)(3) of the Act, of a Fund or an Advisor other than by reason of serving as a sub-adviser to one or more Funds (or any Subsidiary) (‘‘Excluded Subadvisors’’). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 May 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 subject to shareholder approval, while the role of the Subadvisors is substantially similar to that of individual portfolio managers, so that requiring shareholder approval of Subadvisory Agreements would impose unnecessary delays and expenses on the Funds. Applicants believe that the requested relief from the Disclosure Requirements meets this standard because it will improve the Advisor’s ability to negotiate fees paid to the Subadvisors that are more advantageous for the Funds.

Reading Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad Company (RBMN), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to acquire from Carbon County, Pa. (the County), approximately 19.5-miles of rail line extending between milepost 19.5 near Tamenend, Schuylkill County, Pa., and milepost 0.0± at Packerton Jct., Carbon County, Pa. (the Line).1 The verified notice states that RBMN entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with the County dated May 6, 2021, to acquire the Line. RBMN states that currently the Line is operated by C&S Railroad Corporation (C&S), which leases the Line from the County. According to RBMN, when RBMN acquires the Line, C&S’s lease with the County will be terminated and RBMN will enter into a new lease with C&S to permit C&S to continue to lease and operate the Line.2 RBMN certifies that the acquisition does not impose or include an interchange commitment. RBMN further certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in RBMN’s becoming a Class II or Class I rail carrier but that its current annual revenues exceed $5 million. Pursuant to 49 CFR 1150.42(e), if a carrier’s projected annual revenues will exceed $5 million, it must, at least 60 days before the exemption becomes effective, post a notice of its intent to undertake the proposed transaction at the workplace of the employees on the affected lines, serve a copy of the notice on the national offices of the labor unions with employees on the affected lines, and certify to the Board that it has done so. However, RBMN’s verified 1 RBMN states that the portion of the Line between milepost 18 ± at Mauch Chunk Jct. and the end of the line at milepost 19.5 has been out of service and unused for many years. 2 Accordingly, this transaction is related to a concurrently filed verified notice of exemption in C&S Railroad—Lease & Operation Exemption— Reading Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad, Docket No. FD 36517, by which C&S seeks authority to lease from RBMN and operate the Line. PO 00000 Frm 00178 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 notice includes a request for waiver of the 60-day advance labor notice requirements. RBMN’s waiver request will be addressed in a separate decision. The Board will establish the effective date of the exemption in its separate decision on the waiver request. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than June 4, 2021. All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36516, should be filed with the Surface Transportation Board via efiling on the Board’s website. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on RBMN’s representative: Eric M. Hocky, Clark Hill PLC, Two Commerce Square, 2001 Market St., Suite 2620, Philadelphia, PA 19103. According to RBMN, this action is categorically excluded from environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic preservation reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b).
