Investment Grade Managed Duration Income Fund Announces Exchange Ratios for Exchange Option

Purpose Investments Inc., on behalf of the Investment Grade Managed Duration Income Fund (the “Fund”), is pleased to announce the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Fund (the “Exchange Option”) being made under the final prospectus of the Fund dated July 30, 2015.

The Fund’s investment objectives are to:

  • (i) provide holders of units with a stable stream of monthly distributions;
  • (ii) preserve the net asset value per unit; and
  • reduce the risk of rising interest rates by managing portfolio duration,

by investing primarily in U.S. and Canadian dollar denominated investment grade preferred securities.

The initial target distribution yield for the fund is 5.0% per annum based on the original subscription price (or $0.0417 per unit per month or $0.50 per unit per annum).

The number of units issuable for each class of security of an Exchange Eligible Issuer (as listed below) (the “Exchange Ratio”) has been determined by dividing the weighted average trading price of such security during the period of five consecutive trading days ending on August 18, 2015 (the “Pricing Period”), as adjusted to reflect distributions declared by any Exchange Eligible Issuer that will not be received by the Fund, by $10.00. The Exchange Ratio for any such securities that do not trade in Canadian dollars have been determined by converting the weighted average trading price on the applicable exchange of such securities into Canadian dollars based on the Bank of Canada noon rate of exchange on the last day of the Pricing Period. Holders of securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers who deposited such securities pursuant to the Exchange Option will continue to be holders of record up to but not including the date of the closing of the offering of units and will be entitled to receive distributions in respect of such securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers that are declared up to but not including such date. Each Exchange Ratio has been rounded down to five decimal places.

The table below sets out the Exchange Eligible Issuers, the securities of which may be accepted by the Fund pursuant to the Exchange Option, including the name of the Exchange Eligible Issuer, its ticker symbol, its CUSIP number, its ISIN, its volume weighted average trading price during the Pricing Period and the Exchange Ratio.
