TORONTO: Canadian Income Management Inc. (the “Corporation”) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has accepted its Notice of Debt Substantial Issuer Bid to purchase up to 100% of its issued and outstanding 7% unsecured, subordinated debentures due August 31, 2012 (the “Debentures”) at a price of $96.00 (plus any accrued but unpaid interest) per $100 face value of each Debenture (the “Offer”). Currently there are 174,042 Debentures outstanding, with an aggregate face value of $17,404,200.
The Offer is being made through the facilities of the TSX and will be open for acceptance on October 14, 2010 from 10:00 a.m. EST to 12:00 p.m. EST. Holders of the Debentures (“Debentureholders”) who wish to accept the Offer must request that their investment adviser, investment dealer, bank, trust company or other nominee effect the transaction for them.
The Offer is intended to provide liquidity to the Debentureholders and the management of the Corporation believes that retiring Debentures will be accretive to the units of Canadian Income Management Trust (the “Trust”).
Sentry Select Capital Inc. (“Sentry”), the investment manager of both the Corporation and the Trust, is of the view that the current and anticipated future yield environment in respect of income and royalty trusts may raise difficulties in meeting the interest obligations of the Debentures and the repayment obligations upon maturity, therefore, Debentureholders are strongly urged to consider the Offer. Sentry will continue to monitor the situation and may consider further strategic alternatives in the future.
Debentureholders may obtain a copy of the Notice of Debt Substantial Issuer Bid, without charge, by contacting Client Services at 1-888-730-4623.
