MONTREAL, July 14 /CNW/ - O'Leary Funds Management LP is pleased to announce that on July 14, 2010, the O'Leary Advantaged Tactical Global Corporate Bond Fund (the "Fund") successfully issued an additional 600,000 Trust Units and 600,000 Warrants pursuant to the exercise by the Agents of their Over-Allotment Option. Total gross proceeds are now $115,200,000. The Units issued at closing, together with the Units issued pursuant to the Over-Allotment Option, have separated into Trust Units and Warrants and are trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange independently under the symbols: OCB.un and OCB.wt, respectively.
The initial monthly cash distribution of $0.06 per Trust Unit is anticipated to be payable on August 13, 2010 to Unitholders of record on July 30, 2010. Additionally, each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Trust Unit at a subscription price of $12.00 on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on May 31, 2011.
The Fund's investment objectives are to: (i) preserve capital; and (ii) provide holders of Trust Units with tax advantaged monthly distributions initially targeted to be $0.06 per Trust Unit ($0.72 per annum representing an annual yield of 6% based on the $12.00 per Unit issue price).
The Fund was created to provide investors with the opportunity to reallocate their Canadian fixed income investments from federal, provincial and municipal governments and investment vehicles that invest in such bonds and Canadian investment grade debt securities into a portfolio comprised of: (i) corporate fixed-rate debt; (ii) corporate floating-rate debt; (iii) corporate fixed-to-floating-rate debt; and (iv) convertible debt offered by global issuers that Stanton Asset Management Inc. ("Stanton") believes will provide:
- higher levels of income;
- attractive yield to maturity;
- more stability than a portfolio of global equity securities; and
- capital preservation in a period of rising interest rates and gradual
The Manager has retained Stanton to provide investment advisory services to the Fund. Stanton is a Canadian investment firm focused on global investment opportunities, and is also the manager of a variety of specialized funds. Stanton, together with Savtrev, Inc., will implement the investment strategy of the portfolio and will identify markets and investment opportunities.
