Low Volatility U.S. Equity Income Fund

 

LVU.UN

Distributions & Tax

The Fund intends to pay monthly cash distributions in Canadian dollars on the last day of each month in an amount targeted to be 5.0% per annum on the NAV per Unit. The Fund has determined to base the distributions it pays on the NAV per Unit in order to better facilitate the preservation and enhancement of the Fund’s NAV and to enable Unitholders to benefit from any increases in the NAV of the Fund through the resulting increased distributions. The monthly distributions will be determined using the last NAV per Unit prior to the declaration date for the distribution. The first distribution will be for the month of April 2013.

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. 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 units, by the amount received. The reduction in the adjusted cost base of the units is ultimately taxed as a capital gain when the units are sold for investors who hold their units 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.
