Overall Performance General performance on the Board of the Barbados Stock Exchange Inc. (BSE) for the year 2013 showed comparable performance to that of the wider macro-economic environment. Trading for the year started well with the completion of transactions pursuant to the take-over of Republic Bank Barbados Limited (RBBL) by Republic Bank Limited. Average monthly trading was steady from that point until a surge in trading activity during the month of December which saw a spike in activity in both the Regular and Put Through Markets. The Put Through Market had the most improved performance in terms of increased activity as trades occurred on this Market every month with the exception of November. The Junior Market, although only recording one single trade, saw increases in performance in both trading volumes and values; there was one Block Trade transaction during the year 2013. There were also improvements in the level of Bond Market activity during 2013. A comparison of total trading volume and value 2013/2012, inclusive of extraordinary transactions for 2013 mentioned above, as well as those occurring in 2012 - the completion of AMCL Holdings Limited’s takeover of ANSA McAL (Barbados) Limited and the initial trades (Block trades and Regular Market activity) pursuant to Republic Bank Limited’s take-over of Republic Bank Barbados Limited, shows a decline in total trading volume of 43% and an associated decline in total trading value of 60% as illustrated in Table 1 below. However, excluding the extraordinary transactions for both years, total trading volume would have increased by 24% and total trading value would have increased by 42%.

**Odd-Lot Market discontinued October 8th, 2012

There were three de-listings and two new listings on the board of the BSE. ANSA McAL Barbados Limited, Fortress Caribbean Property Fund Limited and Republic Bank Barbados Limited were the securities exiting the board during 2013. Subsequent to the delisting of Caribbean Property Fund, Fortress Fund Managers Limited listed two new mutual funds - Fortress Caribbean Property Fund - Development Fund and Fortress Caribbean Property Fund Value Fund1. Market indices showed mixed results in 2013 when compared to the closing figures for 2012. At year-end, the Local Index was the only measure to record a decrease of 2.82%. The Cross-listed and Composite indices, however, had 1

4 risen by 15.31% and 1.42% respectively, above their 2012 year-end figures. These increases were due primarily to the increase in the traded price of Neal and Massy Holdings Limited which, by the close of 2013, had increased 22.78% over its December 31st, 2012 figure. One Caribbean Media Limited’s price also increased but only by 1.05%. The BSE Market Capitalization measures performed similarly, however, the Cross-Listed Market Cap was the only market measure to recorded an increase of 14.92%. It should be noted that the declining Local Market Cap performance was attributed primarily to the de-listing of both ANSA McAL Barbados Limited and Republic Bank Barbados Limited. Table 2 below illustrates the Trading Statistics Comparison 2012 - 2013. Quarters I and IV were the most active; activity was attributed to the takeover transactions previously mentioned in Q1 and an increase in Put Through and Block Trade Market activity in Q4.

Economic Factors This segment of the report was compiled from the Analysis of Barbados’ Current Economic Performance dated December 2013 and published by the Central Bank of Barbados (CBB). The review states that the economy of Barbados ‘performed appreciably better during the current economic recession’. “Between 2008, when the current crisis hit, and 2013, the economy contracted by 3 percent in total. In the 1981 - 82 recession the decline was 7 percent, and in 1990 - 93 it was as much as 14 percent.” The CBB noted that Barbados “ranks highest among Caribbean countries”, ranking number 47 in the world in the 2013 - 2014 Global Competitiveness Report. Barbados outperformed its Caribbean and Latin American neighbors “in terms of its infrastructure, institutions, health, education, labor market efficiency, financial market development and technological readiness. It is on par with its peers with respect to goods market efficiency, business sophistication and innovation.” Despite also being competitive in terms of Tourism prices and the prices of its other internationally traded goods and services, the CBB stated that Barbados still experienced “some decline in its share of the Caribbean Market” and suggests that initiatives to promote investment, increase productivity, improve the quality of the product, and to enrich the tourist experience, are the focus of the tourism development strategy.” Barbados’ real GDP contracted marginally by 0.2 percent. There were declines in both the value added by tourism and construction of 1 percent and 12 percent respectively, while non-sugar agricultural output and business and other related services experienced increases of 11 percent and 2 percent respectively.

In discussing the recovery of the economy, the CBB mentioned that past performance and future recovery was hinged on “private investment that improves the quality of Barbados’ internationally traded services, renews our products, and extends our product offering.” Proof of this fact was seen as foreign reserves for 2013 fell by $301 million with foreign capital inflows reaching approximately $499 million; a decline of $188 million. The CBB sited the ‘slump’ in private foreign investments as “the major reason behind the decline in foreign exchange reserves in 2013.” As of December 31, 2013, “foreign reserves were the equivalent of 15 weeks of imports of goods and services.” In discussing fiscal policy, the CBB noted that “the declines in reserves from May onwards signaled the need for fiscal contraction measures”. In August 2013, the Government of Barbados detailed an eighteen month fiscal adjustment package and later on December 13, an 11 percent cut in public sector jobs was announced to further ensure the achievement of the fiscal targets. In outlining the growth forecasts and assumptions, the CBB expects less than 1 percent growth in 2014 with a steady increase to 1.6 percent in 2015. Post 2015, growth is expected to be between 2 percent and 3 percent. The CBB stated the “economic growth forecast is based principally on expectations for the tourism sector and on major investment projects planned by the private sector and by Government.”

Trading Activity by Market Regular There was a decline in Regular Market performance for 2013 when compared to its performance in 2012. Decreases of 19% and 38% were registered in both trading volume and value respectively, however, a more realistic picture of the activity can be had when all extraordinary transactions are removed from both years under consideration. In 2013, Republic Bank Limited purchased 1,304,956 shares of Republic Bank Barbados Limited at $5.00 per share and AMCL Holdings Limited purchased 1,850 shares in ANSA McAL Barbados Limited at $11.75 while in 2012, Republic Bank Limited purchased 1,347,489 shares of Republic Bank Barbados Limited at $5.00 per share and AMCL Holdings Limited purchased 761,324 shares in ANSA McAL Barbados Limited at $11.75. The exclusion of these transactions results in the trading volume decreasing by 12% and trading value by 23%. Table 4: Regular Market Statistical Comparison

The Regulatory Roundup – 2013 1. Notices to the Market

Notice to Listed Companies 2013-1 – BSE Corporate Governance Recommendations and Insider Trading Guidelines disseminated March 22, 2013. This Notice made the Recommendations effective, giving the Listed Companies approximately eight (8) months to adopt the provisions into their respective corporate governance regimes. The Recommendations become enforceable on January 1, 2014.

2. Rules of the BSE

The Rules of the Barbados Stock Exchange Inc. were given conditional approval on November 13, 2013. This approval was subject to the amendment of one (1) of the provisions, which was completed on December 2, 2013. These Rules replace the Rules of the Securities Exchange of Barbados dated May 29, 1987, and become effective on January 13, 2014.

3. Consultation with the Market

A breakfast meeting was held with market stakeholders to introduce the Draft Rules of the International Securities Market on February 7, 2013. The Draft Rules were disseminated electronically on February 11 to invite comments and suggestions for a 30 day period, prior to them being submitted to the Financial Services Commission for their review and approval.

4. Listings/De-listings

• ANSA McAL (Barbados) Ltd. de-listed from the board of the Exchange on April 23, 2013. • Republic Bank (Barbados) Ltd. de-listed from the board of the Exchange on December 30, 2013. • Fortress Caribbean Property Fund restructured into a segregated cell company. As a consequence, the company simultaneously de-listed the shares of Fortress Caribbean Property Fund and listed two (2) new cell companies on the board of the Exchange: Fortress Caribbean Property Development Fund and Fortress Caribbean Property Value Fund.

5. Demutualization of the BSE

The BSE took another forward step in its Demutualization goal when it completed a Valuation of the BSE and proposed Allocation of Value, which was considered and approved by Members at the AGM held on July 24, 2013.

6. Stamp Duty Adjudication

During the month of April, the BSE assumed responsibility for the assessment of duty chargeable with respect to executed or completed instruments relating to securities in public companies. This function was previously the responsibility of the Financial Services Commission. During the handing over process, the FSC assumed responsibility of advising the market participants, stakeholders and the general public of this change. This was done by way of a Notice inserted in the daily newspapers as well as by formal letters addressed to stakeholders.


24

7. Contingency Fund

The Trust Deed for the Contingency Fund was made effective April 24, 2013. The completion of this trust deed was mandated by Regulation 67 of the Securities Regulations, 2002 as part of the administration of the Contingency Fund, which was created for the purpose of providing compensation to customers who suffer financial loss as a result of the insolvency, bankruptcy or default of a Member.

8. Visit by representatives of the IMF/World Bank

As part of their Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) mission, 4 officials of the IMF/World Bank team met with officials of the BSE on September 19, 2013. Among the topics discussed were the strategic plan of the BSE, I.T. and technical issues, the functions of the BCSD, regulatory issues of the BSE and market surveillance.

9. Major Regulatory Objectives for 2014

• The completion of the Demutualization of the BSE. • Overseeing the full launch of the International Securities Market in Barbados. • Continued updating of the Rules of the BSE in the face of ever-developing capital markets, in addition to keeping up to date with IOSCO standards and the requirements of governing legislation. • To create an environment of strong corporate governance in the capital markets of Barbados with the assistance of the BSE Corporate Governance Recommendations. • To conduct Compliance Reviews on at least two member-brokers. • Developing the website of the BSE as a source of regulatory information for use by investors, brokers, listed companies, and the general public.

Conclusion The Block Trade and Put Through market activity which occurred in the last quarter of 2013 had positive effects on both volumes and values traded, however, these transactions were not sufficient to result in any improvements in overall performance versus the 2012 figures. It must be noted, however, that despite this less than favorable performance, improvements were seen in the Cross-Listed and Composite market measures as the share prices of some securities started to improve. An examination of the index performance of some exchanges across the globe showed positive results suggesting a return of both market stability and shareholder confidence despite the many challenges still being faced by many of these economies. Table 16 below, illustrates that all of the international exchanges have experienced increases in their index measure. The Tokyo Stock Exchange’s Nikkei 225 index recorded the largest increase of 56.72%, followed by NASDAQ’s Nasdaq 100 Index which recorded an increase of 34.99%. In the Region, the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange (TTSE) and the Barbados Stock Exchange Inc. (BSE) recorded increases of 11.27% and 1.42% respectively. The Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) and Eastern Caribbean Stock Exchange (ECSE), however, recorded declines of 12.45% and 6.74% respectively. Table 16: Year on Year Index Comparison

As we look towards 2014, we are ever cognizant of the many vagaries associated with operating during these harsh economic times. While we wish to see improvements in trading activity, we are working to strengthen our infrastructure to better reposition the BSE when the economy returns to a more prosperous state. In late 2013, the BSE held its first annual conference on Corporate Governance and Accountability which, from all reports by the eighty (80) plus participants who attended, was very well received. The conference was centered around the BSE Corporate Governance Recommendations and Insider Trading Guidelines for Listed Companies which become enforceable on January 1, 2014. The Financial Services Commission (FSC) also approved the new Rules of the Barbados Stock Exchange Inc. which take effect on January 13, 2014.
