TORONTO, Aug. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Trident Performance Corp. ("Trident") and Trident Performance Corp. II ("Trident II", and together with Trident, the "Corporations") are pleased to announce that at a special meeting of shareholders of each Corporation held today, shareholders approved the previously announced proposal to dissolve the Corporations following the liquidation and distribution of the assets of each Corporation (the "Terminations").
The Corporations expect to distribute to shareholders, on a pro rata basis, the net proceeds from the liquidation of the assets of the Corporations, less all liabilities and expenses of the Corporations, in late August 2016 and to formally dissolve the Corporations in October 2016.
In connection with the Terminations, the Class A shares of the Corporations are expected to be de-listed from the Toronto Stock Exchange, at the request of the Corporations, at the close of business on August 24, 2016.
Each Corporation currently obtains exposure to a portfolio held by the Trident Performance Trust (the "Reference Fund") through a forward agreement. On or about the date that the Class A shares are de-listed, the Corporations will pre-settle the forward agreements and the Reference Fund will also be terminated.
