About the Fund, a publicly-traded entity
The Fund is a limited purpose, open-ended trust established under the
laws of Ontario to indirectly acquire the trademarks and trade names used by
Pizza Pizza Limited ("Pizza Pizza") in its restaurants. The trademarks were
licensed to Pizza Pizza in 2005 for 99 years, for which Pizza Pizza pays the
Fund a royalty equal to 6% of the system sales of its Pizza Pizza restaurants
in the Royalty Pool. As of January 1, 2007, there were 531 Pizza Pizza
restaurants in the Royalty Pool.
A key attribute of the Fund is that it is based on top-line, system sales
of the Royalty Pool restaurants and not on the profitability of either Pizza
Pizza or the restaurants in the Royalty Pool. The success of the Fund depends
primarily on the ability of Pizza Pizza to maintain and increase system sales
of the Royalty Pool and to meet its royalty obligations.
The Fund's trust units are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the
