SUMMARY:

At the request of Advisors Series Trust (“AST”) and Orinda Asset Management, LLC (“Orinda,” and together, the “Applicants”), the Commission intends to rescind an order previously issued to Applicants under section 6(c) of the Act that granted an exemption from section 15(a) of the Act and rule 18f-2 under the Act, as well as from certain disclosure requirements.[1]

Background

1. The Prior Order granted the Applicants relief from section 15(a) of the Act and rule 18f-2 under the Act, as well as from certain disclosure requirements, to permit certain series of AST to enter into and materially amend subadvisory agreements without shareholder approval. Applicants have requested that the Prior Order be rescinded because they are not presently relying on the Prior Order and will not do so in the future.

2. Section 38(a) of the Act states, in relevant part, that the Commission shall have authority to rescind an order as is necessary or appropriate to the exercise of the powers conferred upon the Commission elsewhere in the Act. The Commission intends to rescind the Prior Order pursuant to section 38(a) of the Act.

Start Signature

By the Commission.

Secretary.
