ISL Loan Trust to Be Wound Up

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 12, 2017) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

ISL LOAN TRUST (the "Trust") announced today that LOGiQ Asset Management Ltd. (TSX:LGQ) (the "Manager"), the manager of the Trust, has decided to terminate the Trust on July 12, 2017 or as soon as practicable after such date.

The Manager has previously announced its intention to complete the merger (the "Merger") of Voya High Income Floating Rate Fund and Voya Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund, resulting in Voya Floating Rate Senior Loan Fund being the continuing fund (the "Continuing Fund"). Upon receipt of all necessary approvals, it is expected that the Merger will be implemented on or about July 14, 2017. The Continuing Fund currently gains exposure to a portfolio held by the Trust. As part of the Merger, the portfolio will be held directly by the Continuing Fund. The Manager believes is in the best interests of unitholders of the Trust ("Unitholders") to terminate the Trust in connection with the Merger.

In accordance with the Trust's declaration of trust, the Manager may, in its discretion, on 30 days' notice to Unitholders, terminate the Trust without the approval of Unitholders if, in the opinion of the Manager, it would be in the best interests of the Unitholders to terminate the Trust. Upon termination, following the conversion of the assets of the Trust to cash, and the satisfaction of, or provision for, all liabilities of the Trust, the net assets of the Trust will be distributed to Unitholders on a pro rata basis based on the net asset value of the classes of Units. Following such distribution, the Trust will terminate.
