Distributions & Tax

Preferred shares pay fixed cumulative preferential quarterly cash distributions in the amount of $0.13125 per Preferred share representing a yield on the issue price of the Preferred shares of 5.25% per annum.

Class A shares have a targeted distribution of $0.30 per quarter resulting in an 8.0% yield on the original issue price of $15.00. Distributions on the Class A shares have been suspended in accordance with the prospectus as the Net Asset Value per Unit is less than $15.00.

Tax Benefits

Distributions from the Fund may have significant tax benefits which result in higher after-tax cash flow than if the income had been earned outside of the Fund. Distributions on the Preferred Shares will generally be classified as dividend income or a return of capital for tax purposes. It is expected that the distributions on the Class A shares will mainly be comprised of capital gains or return of capital. To the extent that any portion of the distribution is ordinary taxable dividends and not capital gains dividends, they will be eligible dividends. The Fund will generally earn dividends on portfolio securities, interest income on cash balances and option premium income which is generally taxed as capital gains. Some portion of a distribution may be considered a return of capital for tax purposes, which is not included in an investor’s taxable income for a year, but will reduce the adjusted cost base of the shares, by the amount received. The reduction in the adjusted cost base of the shares is ultimately taxed as a capital gain when the shares are sold for investors who hold their shares as capital property.

The actual breakdown of distributions for tax purposes will be provided to unitholders annually in March following receipt of the information from the Fund's custodian. 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.

 

Note:

For the 2007 taxation year, to the extent that any portion of the distributions are ordinary taxable dividends and not capital gains dividends, they will be eligible dividends.
