TORONTO and MONTREAL, Oct. 31, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiera Capital Corporation (TSX: FSZ) ("Fiera Capital"), on behalf of June 2020 Corporate Bond Trust (the "Fund"), announces the completion of its initial public offering of, in aggregate, 4,000,000 Class A Units and Class T Units (together, the "Units") at a price of $10.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of $40,000,000. The Class T Units are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "CBT.UN".
The Fund's investment objectives are to: (i) return to unitholders the original issue price of $10.00 per Unit on or before June 30, 2020; and (ii) generate over the term of the Fund an average annual total return after fees and expenses of 3.00% for investors in the initial public offering who purchased Class A Units and 3.50% for investors in the initial public offering who purchased Class T Units by acquiring and holding a portfolio (the "Portfolio") comprised primarily of debt securities of Canadian and U.S. corporate issuers.
The Fund uses the Unit Traded Fund (UTF) structure which has been developed to accomplish two goals, namely (a) to enable the Fund to invest virtually all of the gross proceeds from the offering in the Portfolio, and (b) to encourage the Fund's Class T Units to trade in the market at a price not less than 98.50% of their net asset value per Unit throughout the life of the Fund.
