TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 13, 2016) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Brompton Mutual Funds Limited (the "Corporation") announces that it intends to terminate and wind-up Brompton Dividend & Income Class (the "Fund") on or about February 13, 2017 (the "Termination Date"). The Corporation believes it is in the best interests of the shareholders to terminate the Fund based on the size of the Fund and the decision by the Government of Canada earlier this year to eliminate the tax deferred feature on switches between classes of a mutual fund corporation.
The Corporation will continue to facilitate redemptions and transfers and switches from the Fund prior to the Termination Date but will no longer accept new purchases of shares.
Series A and Series F shares of the Fund will be redeemed for cash based on the net asset value per share of each series as at the close of business on the Termination Date.
The Corporation intends to provide each shareholder of the Fund with notice of the termination.
