TORONTO, June 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Connor, Clark & Lunn Capital Markets Inc. (the "Manager") is pleased to announce that the conversion of Series C Units of CC&L Core Income and Growth Fund (formerly Connor, Clark & Lunn Conservative Income & Growth Fund) (the "Fund") to an open-ended mutual fund has been successfully completed (the "Conversion"). In connection with the Conversion, the Fund was renamed CC&L Core Income and Growth Fund. Immediately after each dealer's back office completes the remaining operational steps, unitholders will be able to subscribe for additional units of the Fund or redeem units on a daily basis at their net asset value via FundSERV. Unitholders will also be able to switch their units into other series of the Fund. No redemption fees are applicable to unitholders who redeem their Series C Units received as a result of the Conversion. Investors who redeem or switch within 90 days of purchase may be charged a short-term trading fee of 2.0%.
The Manager is also pleased to announce the initial targeted distribution rate for CC&L Core Income and Growth Fund. The targeted monthly distribution rate will be $0.10903 per Unit ($1.30836 per Unit per annum). Distributions are expected to be paid to unitholders of record on the last business of each month starting in June 2012. The Fund offers three series of Units via FundSERV:
|Series A||CCL 550|
|Series F||CCL 551|
|Series C||CCL 552|
For holders of Series C Units, the target monthly distribution rate of $0.10903 differs from the previous monthly distribution rate of $0.1161. The target monthly distribution rate reflects the Manager's assessment of what is a sustainable distribution rate for the Fund as an open-end mutual fund and based on the Fund's investment strategy.
