Regular Monthly Distribution, Special Distribution and Net Asset Value as at May 15, 2014
MONTREAL, May 21, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Global Diversified Investment Grade Income Trust ("Global DIGIT") declares the following monthly distributions composed of a regular distribution of $0.027 per unit and a special distribution of $0.053 per unit:
|Record Date||Payment Date||
Paid in 2014
TSX Closing Price Per
May 21, 2014
|DG.UN||$0.08||May 30, 2014||June 13, 2014||$0.375||$9.08|
The special distribution of $0.053 per unit represents a portion of the excess cash of Global DIGIT which is not needed for the continuation of the current operations.
The objective of Global DIGIT is to provide unitholders with varying monthly distributions based on the applicable one-month bankers' acceptance rate plus 2.00%. The current bankers' acceptance rate is approximately 1.24%.
Global DIGIT announces an estimated net asset value ("NAV") per unit as at May 15, 2014 of $9.31.
The NAV is equal to the aggregate value of the assets less the aggregate value of the liabilities. Substantially all of the assets of Global DIGIT consist of cash and three credit default swaps entered into with Deutsche Bank A.G. (Canada Branch) and the related collateral.
As disclosed earlier, Global DIGIT will redeem all its outstanding units on September 9, 2014 (the "Termination Date"). The net income realized by Global DIGIT at the Termination Date, if any, and paid out to unitholders will be taxable as ordinary income. Unitholders should consult their tax advisors to determine how they are going to be affected by the redemption price at Termination Date, on the tax consequences arising from the sale of units on the secondary market prior to such redemption and the most appropriate option given their personal circumstances. Generally, unitholders who dispose of their units prior to the Termination Date will realize a capital gain or capital loss. In the absence of any default resulting in losses for Global DIGIT, it is expected that the redemption price on the Termination Date will be approximately $9.50 per unit. For a unitholder having purchased its units at the time of issue at a price of $10.00, who still owns these units at the Termination Date and based on revenues and expenses assumptions and save for losses affecting Global DIGIT, if any, it is expected that from the estimated amount of $9.50 per unit, approximately $4.75 will represent an attribution of taxable ordinary income and approximately $4.75, a non-taxable return of capital.
