General Information

Distribution Policy

Shareholders were not paid distributions by the Company as all net distributions paid on the Portfolio were reinvested.


All Class A Shares were redeemed on March 15, 2012 at a price of $4.5005 per share.


Dividends received by individual Class A Shareholders will be subject to the normal gross-up and dividend tax credit rules applicable to dividends received on shares of a taxable Canadian corporation.

The amount of any capital gains dividend received by a holder of Class A Shares will be considered to be a capital gain in the taxation year in which the capital gain dividend is received.

Amounts received as a return of capital are not taxable but must be used to reduce the adjusted cost base of an investor's Shares.

The Company qualifies as a "mutual fund corporation" and a "financial intermediary corporation" as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada). As a result thereof and after deduction of expenses in computing its income, the Company does not anticipate that it will be subject to any material non-refundable income tax liability.
