TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 5, 2019 / This notice is being sent to advise that Maple Leaf 2018 Flow-Through Limited Partnership - National Class (CDO181 and CDO182) and Quebec Class (CDO183 and CDO184) (the “Partnership”) will be proceeding with a transaction (the “Liquidity Transaction”) pursuant to which the assets of the Partnership (the “Assets”) will be transferred on a tax-deferred basis to the Maple Leaf Resource Class (the “Resource Class Mutual Fund” or “CDO100”), a class of shares of Maple Leaf Corporate Funds Ltd., an open-ended mutual fund corporation, in exchange for Series A shares of the Mutual Fund.
Additional information about the Resource Class Mutual Fund is available in their simplified prospectus and annual information form. These documents are available at www.sedar.com and www.mapleleaffunds.ca.
How the Rollover Will Work:
Pursuant to the Liquidity Transaction, Limited Partners of the Partnership (“Investors”) will receive shares of the Resource Class Mutual Fund in connection with the dissolution of the Partnership. The effective date of the Liquidity Transaction (the “Effective
Date”) is expected to be on or about Monday, October 7, 2019. Shortly after the Effective Date, the shares of the Resource Class Mutual Fund will be distributed on a pro rata basis to investors and thereafter the Partnership will be dissolved.
Investors will receive the Resource Class Mutual Fund shares in exchange for, and with a value equal to, the value of the units of the Partnership held at the time of such transfer of Assets. When the shares of the Resource Class Mutual Fund are received, the Partnership units will be removed from each Investors account. Processing may take 2 to 3 business days (in some cases longer) to complete, after the rollover occurs.
The Partnership will issue a press release once the Liquidity Transaction has been completed and the conversion ratio has been determined.
The ACB (adjusted cost base) for each unit of the Partnership and each share of the Resource Class Mutual Fund will be determined by the General Partner upon the wind-up of the Partnership’s affairs. The Partnership will dissolve within 60 days of the Effective Date. The General Partner will post these details on its website at www.mapleleaffunds.ca.
Investors should consult with their investment advisor and/or tax advisor for all tax-related matters.
An Investor holds 100 Partnership units with a final Net Asset Value of $20.00 at the time of rollover and the net asset value per share of the Resource Class Mutual Fund is $5.00 on the same date. Based on these net asset values, the conversion ratio will be 4.0 (4.0 = $20.00 / $5.00). The Investor’s 100 units, valued at $2,000, are removed from the Investor’s account and 400 shares (400 = 100 x 4.0) of the Resource Class Mutual Fund, valued at $2,000, are added to the Investor’s account.
Processing can be delayed after the rollover occurs, therefore transactions such as switches or redemptions may not be processed until the Resource Class Mutual Fund shares have been credited to client accounts.
Neither the Partnership nor the Resource Class Mutual Fund will accept any liability for transactions executed prior to dealer records being updated.
Backer Wealth Manager Inc. (“Backer”) will be responsible for the Mutual Fund’s investment activities. Mr. Craig Porter, President of Backer, will act as Portfolio Manager on behalf of Backer. Mr. Porter has over 30 years of experience investing in the Canadian capital markets and was a Senior Portfolio Manager at Front Street Capital 2005 to 2017.
