August 09, 2010 05:34 PM Eastern Daylight Time
NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The Board of Directors of DWS RREEF World Real Estate
Fund, Inc. (NYSE: DRP) announced today that the Fund’s reconvened Annual Meeting of Stockholders was
concluded on August 9, 2010 after being adjourned without action on July 12, 2010 (the “Annual Meeting”). In
accordance with the Fund’s charter and as described in the Fund’s proxy statement, the presence, in person or by
proxy, of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Fund (i.e., over 50%) was required to constitute a
quorum at the Annual Meeting. Under Maryland law, the jurisdiction in which the Fund is incorporated, this quorum
requirement cannot be modified without stockholder approval of an amendment to the Fund’s charter. This is the
same quorum requirement that has applied to all stockholder meetings since the Fund’s inception.
A sufficient number of holders of shares of the Fund were not present in person or by proxy to constitute a quorum
at the Annual Meeting, and without a quorum the Fund could not conduct business with respect to the election of
Directors or the stockholder proposal included in the Fund’s proxy statement. The Fund’s proxy solicitor advised
the Fund that further solicitation of proxies was unlikely to result in a quorum; therefore, the meeting was concluded.
Accordingly, in accordance with Maryland law, each incumbent Class III Director (Rebecca W. Rimel, Kenneth C.
Froewiss, William N. Searcy, Jr. and Robert H. Wadsworth) nominated for re-election by the Board will continue in
office as a holdover director until such time as his or her successor is elected and qualifies.
The Fund will announce the results of the Independent Inspector of Election’s final report with respect to the Annual
