Canoe Financial LP (the "Manager" or "Canoe"), has filed a preliminary prospectus for the initial public offering (the "Offering") of limited partnership units ("Units") of Canoe 2014 Flow-Through LP (the "Partnership"), in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec.
The Partnership's investment objective is to provide limited partners with exposure to quality tax-advantaged energy investments of one or both of its two separate investment portfolios: (i) one consisting primarily of Canadian Development Expense ("CDE") flow-through shares of resource companies (the "Class CDE Portfolio"); and (ii) one consisting primarily of Canadian Exploration Expense ("CEE") flow-through shares of resource companies (the "Class CEE Portfolio", and together with the Class CDE Portfolio, the "Investment Portfolios"). The Partnership provides investors with the choice of investing in either the Class CDE Portfolio or the Class CEE Portfolio or a combination of both, allowing investors to target their specific investment requirements.
The maximum Offering has been set at $60 million (2,400,000 Units), consisting of a maximum of $40 million (1,600,000 CDE Units) of the Class CDE Portfolio and $20 million (800,000 CEE Units) of the Class CEE Portfolio. The minimum Offering has been set at $5 million (200,000 CDE Units and/or 200,000 CEE Units). The minimum subscription amount is 200 Units at a price of $25.00 per Unit comprised of one or both of the classes of Units and payable in full on closing.
The Investment Portfolios will be managed by Canoe Financial LP, a Calgary-based investment management firm with approximately $2.0 billion in assets under management. Canoe's personnel have experience investing in and operating oil and natural gas companies as well as financing and structuring energy-related transactions. On or before June 30, 2016, the Partnership intends to complete an exchange transaction on a tax-deferred basis with Canoe 'GO CANADA!'® Fund Corp. or with another designated Canoe Financial mutual fund corporation. In exchange for the assets of the Partnership, shares of Canoe Energy Class, a class of mutual fund shares of Canoe 'GO CANADA!'® Fund Corp., will be issued to the Partnership and then distributed to individual limited partners. Canoe Energy Class is focused on generating capital appreciation by investing primarily in oil and natural gas and related businesses.
