NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
TORONTO, June 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Marret Asset Management Inc. ("Marret"), as the manager of Marret High Yield Strategies Fund ("MHY") (TSX: MHY.UN) and Marret Multi-Strategy Income Fund ("MMF") (TSX: MMF.UN), announced today that MHY and MMF have each applied to voluntarily delist their Class A Units (the "Units") from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"). It is expected that the Units will be delisted from the TSX at the close of trading on Friday, June 24, 2016.
Marret is also pleased to announce that its Units have been conditionally approved for trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") and expects them to commence trading on Monday, June 27, 2016, subject to final approval by the CSE.
The Manager, on behalf of MHY and MMF, determined that it would be in the best interest of each fund to voluntarily delist the Units in light of the review by the TSX of the eligibility of the Units for continued listing on the TSX pursuant to the TSX's Remedial Review Process.
If the Units are listed on the CSE, they will continue to be considered qualified investments for registered plans. Marret will provide a further update when the status of the CSE listing application has been confirmed.
