You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell shares of the investment fund on the Toronto Stock Exchange or other alternative Canadian trading system (an “exchange”). If the shares are purchased or sold on an exchange, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying shares of the investment fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.
There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning shares of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in the public filings available at www.sedar.com. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in share value and reinvestment of all distributions and does not take into account certain fees such as redemption costs or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
Distributions from the Fund may have tax benefits which result in higher after tax cash flow than if the income had been earned as interest income.
It is expected that the distributions on the Class A shares will be comprised of mainly capital gains and return of capital and, to a lesser extent, dividend income. Distributions on the Preferred shares are expected to be mainly characterized as dividend payments, which receive the preferential dividend tax treatment. For the purposes of the Income Tax (Canada) and any similar provincial legislation, to the extent that distributions on either the Class A or Preferred shares are characterized as dividend payments, the Company designates any and all dividends paid on both its Class A and Preferred shares in the 2006 calendar year, and all dividends paid thereafter, as “eligible dividends” unless the Company indicates otherwise.
The annual breakdown of distributions for tax purposes will be provided to shareholders annually in February. This information will also be posted on the website as soon as it is available.
This information is of a general nature only and does not constitute legal or tax advice to any particular investor. Accordingly, prospective investors are advised to consult their own tax advisors with respect to their individual circumstances.
The following information is applicable to holders who, for the purpose of the Income Tax Act (Canada), are resident in Canada and hold shares as capital property outside of an RRSP, RRIF or DPSP. Shareholders should receive a T5 slip from their investment dealer providing this information.
