liquidation and dissolution and authorized the officers of the 
applicant to sell all or substantially all of the securities held by 
the applicant and other properties of the applicant for cash at the 
fair market value of such assets and properties. The board of 
director's determination to liquidate the applicant was based upon the 
perceived inability to raise assets, lack of shareholder interest, and 
inefficiencies associated with investing limited funds. Also on January

other classes of securities of the applicant outstanding.
    4. Applicant sold all of the securities held by it on February 1, 
1996. The proceeds from the sale of these securities were 
$17,938,846.49. Such proceeds were fully distributed in cash to the 
shareholders on February 1, 1996. Each shareholder received the net 
asset value of its shares.
    5. Expenses consisting of accounting, administrative, and certain 
legal expenses were incurred in connection with the liquidation and 
termination of applicant. These expenses totalled approximately $4,200 
and were borne by BEA Associates, applicant's investment adviser. No 
brokerage commissions were incurred in connection with the liquidation.
    6. As of the date of the application, applicant had no 
shareholders, assets, or liabilities, and was not a party to any 
litigation or administrative proceeding. Applicant is neither engaged, 
nor does it propose to engage, in any business activities other than 
those necessary for the winding-up of its affairs.
    7. Applicant intends to file a notice of termination with the State 
Department of Taxation and Assessment of Maryland.
