DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, Aug. 21 /CNW/ - SCITI Trust II (the "Trust") announced today
that it has mailed the information circular pertaining to the proposed
reorganization (the "Reorganization") announced on July 22, 2009. The
Reorganization, if approved and completed, will allow holders of Trust units
("Unitholders") to exchange their Trust units for units of SCITI Trust on a
net asset value basis.
In order to preserve significant tax loss pools in SCITI Trust, the Board
of the Trustee has determined to effect the Reorganization on a taxable basis
for Unitholders of the Trust. Unitholders that elect to exchange into SCITI
Trust will be deemed to have disposed of their Trust units and will realize a
capital gain (or capital loss) to the extent the price realized is greater
than (or less than) the investor's adjusted cost base of the units.
