DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
MONTREAL, Feb. 28, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiera Capital Corporation (the "Manager" or "Fiera Capital"), the manager of Canadian Preferred Share Trust (the "Fund") (TSX: PFT.UN), announced today that the Fund will be terminated on or about March 31, 2020.
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 to do so. Given the current size of the Fund and its related expenses, the Manager has determined that it is in the best interest of the Fund and the unitholders to terminate the Fund. 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 March 24, 2020.
