On September 30, 2020, the Manager pre-announced the termination of the Funds. Effective close of business December 15, 2020, the Funds were terminated. The units of the Funds were previously de-listed, at the request of the Manager, from the Toronto Stock Exchange effective close of business on December 10, 2020.
Following the termination, the final unitholders of the Funds became entitled to receive the proceeds from the liquidation of the assets, less all liabilities and all expenses. The proceeds have been allocated to those unitholders on a pro rata basis at the rates (the "Final NAV") and in the currency shown in the table below and no further action is required by unitholders. In addition, immediately before the time of termination, unitholders of the Funds received a final distribution ("Final Distribution").
The Final NAV and the Final Distribution per unit of each of the Funds are as follows:
