Monthly Cash distributions
Monthly distributions of $0.04166 per Class A Unit and per Class F Unit on or before each of January 16, 2017, February 15, 2017 and March 15, 2017 (the "Payment Dates") to unitholders of record of the Fund at the close of business on December 30, 2016, January 31, 2017, and February 28, 2017, respectively (the "Distribution Record Dates").
Estimated Special Distribution
Based on information prepared as of October 31, 2016, the Fund estimates paying an additional distribution ("Special Distribution") in respect of each class of units as follows:
- Class A units: $0.02/unit
- Class F units: $0.05/unit
The estimated Special Distribution will be payable on December 30, 2016 to unitholders of record as of December 30, 2016. The estimated Special Distribution will be paid on or about January 3, 2017.
The estimated Special Distribution will be not be paid in cash, rather by the issuance of units of the Fund, and immediately thereafter, the issued and outstanding capital of the Fund will be consolidated such that the number of issued and outstanding units of the Fund will generally not change. As a result, there should be no material change in net asset value per unit of the Fund.
The final amount of the Special Distribution will be announced as soon as it is finalized. The actual taxable amounts of all distributions for 2016, including the tax characteristics of the monthly cash and non-cash Special Distribution, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. or "CDS") in early 2017.
