On August 15, 2012, the Fund announced (the “Default Announcement”) that it would not be able to file an interim financial report and interim management’s discussion and analysis for the period ended June 30, 2012, together with the related certification of filings under National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings (collectively, the “Continuous Disclosure Documents”) by August 29, 2012, the deadline prescribed by securities legislation (the “Specified Requirement”).

On November 7, 2022, the Fund has made its final distribution (the “Final Distribution”) of CAD$0.00549502 per unit of the Fund (each, a “Unit”), representing an aggregate value of CAD$1,925,000 to unitholders of record on October 14, 2022 (the “Record Date”). Only unitholders of record on the Record Date were entitled to receive the Final Distribution. The ex-dividend date for the Final Distribution was October 13, 2022. The Final Distribution will be considered a return of capital. Unitholders should consult their own tax advisors having regard to their particular circumstances.

The Final Distribution was made pursuant to the Plan of Compromise or Arrangement of, inter alia, the Fund dated May 21, 2014, as amended (the “Plan”). Pursuant to the Plan, Alvarez & Marsal Canada Inc., the Court-appointed monitor of the Fund and its subsidiaries (the “Monitor”) transferred the aggregate value of the Final Distribution on behalf and for the account of the Fund, to the Fund’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”).

Pursuant to the Plan, the Fund and its remaining subsidiary also intend to take all steps necessary to wind-up, liquidate, terminate, and/or dissolve in due course. It is anticipated that the Fund will be terminated concurrently with the termination of the ongoing CCAA proceedings following the expiry of any claims for undeliverable or uncashed distributions pursuant to the Plan.
