The Company will invest in dividend-paying equity securities ("Dividend-Paying Equities") of issuers ("Dividend-Paying Issuers") that the Manager believes are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value and have strong cash flows and the ability to grow their dividends.

Investors in the Company's Preferred Shares will receive attractive quarterly distributions on a fixed, cumulative and preferential basis.

The investment objectives for the Class A Shares are: (i) to provide holders of Class A Shares with regular monthly cash distributions in an amount targeted to be 6.00% per annum on the net asset value ("NAV") of the Class A Shares; and (ii) to provide holders of Class A Shares with the opportunity for leveraged growth in NAV and distributions per Class A Share.

The investment objectives for the Preferred Shares are: (i) to provide holders of Preferred Shares with fixed cumulative preferential quarterly cash distributions in the amount of $0.13125 per Preferred Share ($0.525 per year) representing a yield on the issue price of the Preferred Shares of 5.25% per annum; and (ii) to return the issue price of $10.00 per Preferred Share to holders of Preferred Shares at the time of redemption of such shares on December 30, 2014.

The Preferred Shares have been provisionally rated Pfd-2 (low) by Dominion Bond Rating Service Limited.
