TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - Marret Asset Management Inc. announced today that Marret High Yield Strategies Fund (TSX: MHY.UN) and Marret Multi-Strategy Income Fund (TSX: MMF.UN) will pay distributions to unitholders of record on November 9, 2015 ("Distribution Record Date") with a payment date on November 13, 2015 (the "Payment Date"). Marret High Yield Strategies Fund will pay a distribution of $0.2559 per unit and Marret Multi-Strategy Income Fund (TSX: MMF.UN), will pay a distribution of $0.1624 per unit to Class A unitholders.
The distributions represent further proceeds received by the funds from certain bonds issued by Data & Audio-Visual Enterprises Wireless Inc., which operates as Mobilicity, pursuant to the sale of Mobilicity to Rogers Communications. The distributions represent the net proceeds received by the funds and will be the final distributions of the Mobilicity proceeds. They are being made in accordance with the ongoing termination of the funds.
In accordance with the applicable rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), the "due bill" trading procedures of the TSX will apply to the distributions. The units of the funds will trade on a "due bill" basis from two trading days prior to the Distribution Record Date (i.e., November 5, 2015) to the Payment Date, inclusively (the "due bill period"). Any trades that are executed on the TSX during the due bill period will be identified to ensure purchasers of the funds' units receive the entitlement to the respective distribution.
The units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis on November 16, 2015, as of which date purchases of units will no longer have an attaching entitlement to the distribution. The due bill redemption date will be November 18, 2015.
There is no guarantee the Toronto Stock Exchange will permit Marret Multi-Strategy Income Fund to maintain its listing. Investors should consult their tax advisors on the possible consequences if the fund is delisted.
