TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2015 /CNW/ – Lysander Funds Limited ("Lysander") announces that the Canso Credit Income Fund (the "Fund") is expected to make a special distribution for its year ending December 31, 2015 ("Special Distribution"). Based on information prepared on behalf of the Fund as of October 31, 2015, the amount of the Special Distribution in respect of each class of units of the Fund is estimated to be as follows:
- Class A units: $3.06/unit
- Class F units: $3.38/unit
The Special Distribution will be payable on December 31, 2015 to unitholders of record as of December 31, 2015. The Special Distribution will be paid on or about January 4, 2016.
The Special Distribution will be paid by the issuance of units of the Fund, and immediately thereafter, the issued and outstanding capital of the Fund will be consolidated such that the number of issued and outstanding units of the Fund will generally not change. As a result, there should be no material change in net asset value per unit of the Fund.
The final amount of the Special Distribution will be announced as soon as it is finalized. The actual taxable amounts of all distributions for 2015, including the tax characteristics of the monthly and Special Distribution, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. or "CDS") in early 2016 however, as a result of the termination of the forward agreement on June 30, 2015, it is expected that the distributions for 2015 will be characterized principally as capital gains.
