VANCOUVER, Dec. 19, 2016 /CNW/ - Trez Capital ("Trez") is pleased to announce that the unitholders (the "Unitholders") of Trez Capital Yield Trust US ("TCYT US") have voted in favour of all resolutions put to unitholders at the Special Meeting of Unitholders held on December 9, 2016 and to become effective January 1, 2017.
Firstly, Unitholders approved a reorganization of TCYT US resulting in the holders of units denominated in Canadian dollars holding their investment in a newly settled trust (the "CAD Trust"). The holders of units denominated in US dollars will continue to hold their investment in TCYT US following the reorganization.
Additionally, the Unitholders approved a change to the redemption price of the units of TCYT US such that they will be redeemable at 99% of book value for the first year following subscription and thereafter at 100% of book value. The units of the CAD Trust will have identical redemption rights. For greater certainty, this change is only applicable to new units being subscribed for in the trusts and does not impact the rights ascribed to existing Unitholders' investments.
Both trusts will continue to share the same manager, trustee and investment objectives following the reorganization. Trez anticipates that the reorganization will result in several benefits for TCYT US and the Unitholders, as more specifically set out in the information circular of TCYT US dated November 10, 2016.
