/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA./
TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2015 /CNW/ - Can-60 Income Corp. (the "Fund") (TSX: CSY) announces that it has filed a final prospectus dated November 4, 2015 (the "Prospectus"), with the securities regulatory authorities of all of the provinces and territories of Canada in connection with its conversion into an exchange-traded fund ("ETF"). The Fund will automatically convert into an ETF on November 12, 2015.
In connection with the conversion:
- The Fund's existing equity shares will be re-designated as ETF shares of a new class known as "First Asset Core Canadian Equity Income ETF" (the "First Asset ETF")
- The First Asset ETF's investment objectives, strategies and restrictions will be as described in the Prospectus. A copy of the Prospectus can be found on www.sedar.com
Before the opening of trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the TSX) on November 12, 2015, and prior to the re-designation, the existing equity shares of the Fund will be consolidated on a 1:3 basis (the "Consolidation Ratio"). The ticker symbol of the First Asset ETF shares will remain "CSY".
As a result of the consolidation, the net asset value per share will be increased by the same ratio as the Consolidation Ratio, such that the consolidation will have no impact on the value of an investor's aggregate holding of shares. Similarly, an investor's cost per share will also be increased by the same ratio as the Consolidation Ratio, however investors will hold fewer shares, so the aggregate cost of an investor's shares will remain the same.
No fractional shares will be issued in the consolidation and where the consolidation would result in a fractional share, the number of post-consolidation shares will be rounded down to the nearest whole post-consolidation share in the case of a fractional interest that is less than 0.5, or rounded up to the nearest whole post-consolidation share, in the case of a fractional interest that is 0.5 or greater.
No Action Required
Shareholders are not required to take any action in connection with the conversion or the consolidation. Further details of the conversion are described in the Prospectus and in the management information circular that was mailed to shareholders on or about August 31, 2015.
