JPMorgan China Region Fund, Inc. Adjournment of Annual Meeting of Stockholders

JPMorgan China Region Fund, Inc. (‘JFC’ or the ‘Fund’) announced today that the Fund’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders (‘Annual Meeting’) has been adjourned until July 20, 2016 because a quorum for the conduct of business was not present. The reconvened Annual Meeting will be held on July 20, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time at the offices of J.P. Morgan Asset Management, 270 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10017. The record date for the Annual Meeting remains March 24, 2016.
The Fund, the members of the Board that are not “interested persons” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, (‘Independent Directors’) and JFIMI may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies of the Fund's stockholders in connection with the Annual Meeting. Stockholders of the Fund may obtain information about the Independent Directors, along with the Fund's interested Director and executive officers, including their beneficial ownership of shares of the Fund's common stock, and information about JFIMI, in the Proxy Materials and other relevant documents that have been filed by the Fund with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘SEC’) in connection with the Annual Meeting. This solicitation may be made via regular or electronic mail.
Two activist shareholders, Ancora Catalyst Fund LP and Merlin Partners LP, (‘Ancora’) have submitted two stockholder proposals for which they intend to solicit votes. Ancora has sent a definitive proxy statement, white proxy card and related proxy materials to stockholders of the Fund seeking their support of each of the stockholder proposals at the Fund’s 2016 Annual Meeting. This solicitation recommends that you vote AGAINST Ancora’s proposals and FOR the election of Directors.
Stockholders and investors are urged to carefully read the proxy materials sent to stockholders and other documents filed with the SEC, because they contain important information.
Stockholders and investors may obtain a free copy of the proxy statement (including any amendments thereto if and when they become available) and other documents filed by the Fund with the SEC through the website maintained by the SEC athttp://www.sec.gov.
