- The Company paid its originally projected distributions totaling $8,045,572.

"We are pleased to report the Company's results for the first half of 2013," said Michael J.R. Nisker, President and CEO of Trez Junior MIC. "We have built a mortgage portfolio that is delivering an attractive yield while at the same time maintaining a low loan-to-value ratio of 65%. Risk mitigation is further built into the portfolio by maintaining an average loan duration of about 20 months. As such, new mortgages are written to coincide with the current interest rate environment, while also applying a floating interest rate with a fixed minimum rate on all mortgages. These measures minimize loan duration risk and interest rate sensitivity."
