CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2016) - Via press releases on December 7th, 14th, and 31st of 2015, Foremost Income Fund (the "Fund") announced that it would distribute its 2015 taxable income by a non‐cash distribution in the form of units of the Fund. The units distributed were thereafter immediately consolidated, with the result that taxable unitholders received income in respect of the distribution estimated in the December 31, 2015 press release to be $0.54 per unit held prior to the distribution and consolidation (collectively the "distribution and consolidation").
The Fund undertook, in the press releases referenced above, to confirm the amount distributed pursuant to the distribution and consolidation upon final determination of the Fund's income in February 2016.
This press release confirms that the 2015 taxable income per unit for the year ended December 31, 2015 is $0.54 per unit held prior to the distribution and consolidation, being the same as the amount previously estimated.
This information is intended for summary purposes only and is subject in all respects to the Deed of Trust. All dollar amounts are in Canadian dollars. The income and other tax consequences of holding, redeeming or disposing of units will vary depending on the unitholder's particular circumstances, including the jurisdiction(s) in which the unitholder resides or carries on business, and whether the unitholder is an RRSP, RESP, RRIF, PPSP or TFSA. Accordingly, this information is of a summary nature only and is not intended to be legal or tax advice to any prospective purchaser or any unitholder. All unitholders should consult their own legal and tax advisors.
