Taylor North American Equity Opportunities Fund Announces September Distribution and Initiation of DRIP

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2013) - Taylor North American Equity Opportunities Fund (the "Fund") (TSX:TOF.UN) is pleased to announce a monthly distribution payable on October 15, 2013 to unitholders of record at the close of business on September 30, 2013 in the amount of $0.0520 per unit.

The Fund is also pleased to announce that a distribution reinvestment plan ("DRIP") has been implemented to provide unitholders with the ability to automatically reinvest their distributions in additional units of the Fund and realize the benefits of compound growth of their investment. Under the DRIP, if the 10 day weighted average trading price prior to the distribution payment date (the "Trading Price") is higher than the net asset value ("NAV"), such that the Fund is trading at a premium to NAV, unitholders will benefit from reinvesting distributions at the lower value, being NAV. If the Trading Price is lower than the NAV, such that the Fund is trading at a discount to NAV, unitholders will generally benefit from reinvesting at below NAV through the acquisition of units in the market. The DRIP provides an attractive reinvestment mechanism in both circumstances when the Fund trades at a premium or a discount to NAV. Contact your investment advisor to enroll in the Fund's DRIP and please visit our website for complete details of the DRIP plan.

David Taylor is the portfolio manager responsible for the Fund's portfolio and is a recipient of the Brendan Wood 2012 Canadian TopGun Investment Mind Award. As of August 31, 2013, the Fund's portfolio was 65% invested in US equities, providing investors with exposure to attractive opportunities in the US equities market and, to a lesser extent, the Canadian equities market and has produced a 28.7% return over the past year to August 31.

Taylor employs a value-driven investment strategy to construct a portfolio that seeks to balance long-term capital growth with capital preservation, and invests opportunistically in equity and equity-related securities of issuers that the portfolio manager believes are fundamentally sound and are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value.
