Income Financial: 23% Increase to Monthly Distribution

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 18, 2013) - Income Financial is pleased to announce an immediate increase in its monthly distribution policy that will increase the monthly distribution by 23% from its previous month's distribution. The dividend for November will be $0.08517 per unit.

In making this change, the Manager considered the following in its analysis:

  • The strong investment performance of Income Financial this year.
  • In addition to paying monthly distributions at a rate of 8.5%, the trust also increased its net asset value by a further 20% this year alone.
  • The new distribution policy better reflects the strong performance of Income Financial's investment portfolio.

Under the new distribution policy, the monthly distribution will be determined by applying a 10% annualized rate on the volume weighted average market price (VWAP) of Income Financial's units over the last 3 trading days of the preceding month. As a result, holders of record on November 29, 2013 will receive a distribution of $0.08517 per unit based on the VWAP of $10.22 over the last 3 trading days of October 2013. Effectively the amount of the new distribution policy will vary with the market price, but the current yield will remain stable at 10% (based on the VWAP) under this distribution policy.

Income Financial unitholders have received a total of $25.97 per unit in distributions since inception, inclusive of this distribution.

Income Financial invests in a portfolio of North American financial services companies including some of the strongest Canadian & U.S. banks, life insurance and investment firms.
