MONTREAL, May 21 /CNW/ - O'Leary Canadian Income Opportunities Fund (TSX: OCY.un/OCY.wt) (the "Fund") announces an expected monthly distribution amount for the following twelve months commencing June 30, 2010 of $0.09 per Trust Unit ($1.08 per annum). This monthly distribution amount remains the same as the regular monthly distribution paid by the Fund since its inception.
The Fund was created to invest in an actively managed portfolio comprised primarily of publicly-traded securities of mid and large-cap issuers domiciled in Canada providing investors with both income and potential for capital appreciation. The Fund invests primarily in corporate bonds, convertible debt securities, preferred shares, as well as income trust units and dividend-paying equity securities of such issuers.
The Fund permits investors to capitalize on current market opportunities and the knowledge and capabilities of Stanton Asset Management Inc. ("Stanton") and Savtrev, Inc. ("O'Leary") who will work together to identify securities providing income and the potential for capital appreciation.
The Fund's investment objectives are:
(i) to maximize total return for holders of Trust Units ("Unitholders"), consisting of distributions, interest and dividend income and capital appreciation; and
(ii) to provide Unitholders with monthly distributions initially targeted to be $0.09 per Trust Unit ($1.08 per annum representing an annual cash distribution of 9% based on the $12.00 per Unit issue price).
