BrickX Platform Member’s Meeting – vote opens 22 November 2018
Proposed change of responsible entity and trustee: appointment of BrickX Financial Services Limited (ACN 616 118 088) (AFSL 494878)
Currently, Theta Asset Management Ltd (ABN 37 071 807 684) (AFSL 230920) (Theta) is the responsible entity of the BrickX Platform (ARSN 613 156 433) (BrickX Platform) and is the trustee of each BrickX Trust. The Brick Exchange Pty Limited (ABN 27 600 762 749) (BrickX) is the appointed manager of the BrickX Platform and is responsible for the investment and operations.
Theta proposes to retire from the above noted roles and wishes to appoint BrickX Financial Services Limited as the new responsible entity and trustee. On 22 November 2018, Theta called a meeting of members of the BrickX Platform to approve its retirement as responsible entity of the BrickX Platform. A copy of the Notice of Meeting and Explanatory Memorandum can be found below. The Notice of Meeting and Explanatory Memorandum should be read for details of why this vote has been called, how votes will be counted, how a member can cast a vote and understand how buying and selling Bricks during the notice period will impact your vote.
The meeting is scheduled to be held at 10am on 22 January 2019.
Why are BrickX and Theta proposing the change of responsible entity and trustee?
In summary, BrickX is seeking to internalise the responsible entity role for the BrickX Platform. The purpose of the change is to support and increase operational and cost efficiencies for members. Theta has been working with BrickX since the establishment of the BrickX Platform and now the BrickX Platform has reached a size at which it is appropriate to consider this change.
The proposed changes will support BrickX’s ability to release BrickX product enhancements more quickly, including for example a proposed BrickX app. BrickX seeks to continually improve customer experience and deliver continued growth as they strengthen their hold on disrupting the property investment market. With an internal responsible entity, oversight and insight into those needs will be more closely aligned and managed by BrickX. As BrickX evolves with future growth opportunities identified in non-traditional markets and technologies, we believe the proposed changes will advantage members.
It is important to note that a change in responsible entity will not impact the ongoing management of the BrickX Platform.
Theta agree that its retirement is appropriate, as it will not adversely affect members.
