MONTREAL, Aug. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Global Diversified Investment Grade
Income Trust ("Global DIGIT" or the "Trust") (TSX: DG.UN) announces today that
the redemption price for this year's annual redemption will be $2.71 per unit.
The annual redemption date for 2009 is August 31, 2009, and pursuant to
the special measures announced on July 21, 2009 in respect of this year's
annual redemption, Unitholders will have until 4:00 p.m. EDT on August 27,
2009 (the "Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline") to tender Units or withdraw Units
tendered under the 2009 annual redemption process. The payment date for Units
redeemed will be September 15, 2009.
A Unitholder who wishes to tender Units for redemption must cause a
broker, dealer, bank or other financial institution participating (a "CDS
Participant") in the book-entry system maintained by CDS Clearing and
Depository Services Inc. ("CDS") to deliver to CDS (at its office in the City
of Montreal, Québec or Toronto, Ontario) on behalf of the Unitholder a written
redemption notice no later than the Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline. A
Unitholder who desires to have Units redeemed should ensure that the CDS
Participant is provided with instructions sufficiently in advance of the
Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline to permit the CDS Participant to deliver a
notice to CDS by the Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline. Similarly, a Unitholder
who has tendered Units for redemption but wishes to withdraw such tendered
Units should ensure that a CDS Participant is notified of the Unitholder's
intention sufficiently before the Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline in order for
that CDS Participant to notify CDS before the Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline.
Any Unitholder who does not cause a CDS Participant to tender or withdraw, as
the case may be, Units before the Tendering/Withdrawal Deadline will not be
able to have such Units redeemed or withdrawn as part of the 2009 Annual
To initiate the tender or withdrawal procedure, Unitholders should
contact their investment advisor.
The boards of directors of the Trustees make no recommendation regarding
whether any Unitholder should continue to hold their Units, sell their Units
in the market, or tender their Units for redemption under the annual
redemption. These are determinations that Unitholders should make in
consultation with their own financial and tax advisors.
