Keyera Completes Internal Reorganization

    CALGARY, Jan. 2 /CNW/ - Keyera Facilities Income Fund (TSX:KEY.UN;
KEY.DB) ("Keyera" or the "Fund") announced today that it completed an internal
reorganization of the Fund and certain of its subsidiaries previously approved
by its Unitholders in June 2007.
    In late December Keyera received both an advance income tax ruling from
the Canada Revenue Agency confirming that the reorganization could be
completed without adverse Canadian tax consequences for the Fund or its
Unitholders, and a final court order approving the plan of arrangement
pursuant to which the reorganization was implemented. Receipt of the ruling
and the court approval paved the way for Keyera to implement the
reorganization earlier today.
    The reorganization streamlines Keyera's existing structure, simplifies
accounting, legal, reporting and income tax compliance, and reduces the
general and administrative costs associated with these activities. In
addition, it provides enhanced tax planning flexibility that should enable
Keyera to minimize the amount of cash taxes payable by Keyera in 2011, when
the Government of Canada's new tax on the distributions of existing
publicly-traded Canadian income trusts takes effect. The reorganization did
not involve the acquisition of any additional interest in any operating assets
or the disposition of any of the Fund's existing interests in operating
    As at January 1, 2007, Keyera had approximately $385 million of
unutilized tax pools and deductions, consisting mostly of class 41
undepreciated capital costs, available for deduction by the Fund's
subsidiaries. Keyera plans to reduce the use of its available tax deductions
in years 2008 through 2010, thereby increasing deductions available for the
years after 2010.
