/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
MONTREAL and TORONTO, May 12, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiera Capital Corporation (the "Manager"), the manager of North American REIT Income Fund (the "Fund") (TSX: NRF.UN), confirmed today, that as previously announced, the Fund will be closed on or about May 29, 2017 (the "Termination Date").
As set out in the Fund's declaration of trust, the Fund does not have a fixed termination date but the Manager may terminate the Fund without the approval of unitholders if the Manager believes it is no longer economically practical to continue the Fund or that it would be in the best interests of the Fund. Given the current size of the Fund and its related expenses and the upcoming annual redemption date, the Manager has determined that it is in the best interest of the Fund's unitholders to terminate the Fund prior to the annual redemption date. Following the satisfaction of, or provision for, all liabilities of the Fund, the net assets of the Fund will be distributed to the unitholders of the Fund on a pro rata basis and the Fund will be terminated.
It is expected that the units of the Fund will be delisted from the TSX on or about May 23, 2017. Due to the Termination Date occurring prior to the annual redemption date, there will be no annual redemption for the Fund in 2017 as all units will be redeemed on the Termination Date.
