    These are not recommendations to buy or to sell any security. Securities and holdings may vary.

    As of February 23, 2017, AFK is fair valuing the Nigerian Naira spot rate by referencing the 6-month non-deliverable forward rate. The valuation methodology may change in the future. As of such date, using the forward rate, in addition to securities denominated in Nigerian Naira, AFK held approximately USD$4million in Nigerian Naira cash balances. Foreign currency cash balances are subject to frequent change.
