TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 01, 2016) - Timbercreek U.S. Multi-Residential Opportunity Fund #1 (the "Fund") is pleased to announce that it has completed the sale of Lake Ellenor, located in Orlando, Florida, for a total consideration of USD 26.2 million. Lake Ellenor was purchased for USD 18.7 million in November 2013.
Special Distribution Update
The Fund intends to distribute available net proceeds from the sale of the Lake Ellenor disposition in the form of a special distribution to be paid on January 5, 2017 to holders of Class A Units, Class B Units and Class C Units of record on November 30, 2016 (the "Special Distribution"). The Manager intends to provide an estimate on the post-distribution NAV the day after payment date.
Generally, for Canadian tax purposes, a member of a partnership is able to increase its adjusted cost base in a partnership by its share of the taxable income from that partnership. Canadian tax regulations provide that this increase in the adjusted cost base occurs at the beginning of the year following the distribution of such income. As each limited partner's tax adjusted cost base will have been reduced significantly from the Q3 2016 special distribution, in order to avoid a potential negative cost base issue (i.e. unintended additional capital gain), the proceeds from the Lake Ellenor disposition will be distributed on January 5, 2017.
Update on Disposition of Remaining Assets
The Fund has completed the repositioning and rehabilitation program across the remaining two assets in the portfolio and will seek to complete the disposition of these assets prior to the end of the first quarter of 2017. Further details on the disposition plans for these assets will be shared as they develop.
