On September 30, 2005, the Commission issued an Order ("September Order") instituting settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against International Equity Advisors, LLC ("IEA") and Richard Roger Lund ("Lund"). On December 23, 2005, the Commission issued an Order ("December Order") that authorized the establishment of a Fair Fund, comprised of disgorgement, prejudgment interest and civil monetary penalties paid by IEA and Lund, for distribution to certain mutual funds injured by the market timing trading activity pursuant to a distribution plan.

Under the Distribution Plan, funds will be distributed to those mutual funds that have been harmed by the illegal market timing activities described in the September Order. Eligible mutual funds will not need to go through a claims process.

For the Commission, by its Secretary, pursuant to delegated authority.

Nancy M. Morris
