VANCOUVER, BC / Maple Leaf Corporate Funds Ltd. (the “Corporation”) announced the capital gains dividends for the Maple Leaf Resource Class (the “Maple Leaf Fund”) for the 2014 tax year. On January 23, 2014, the Corporation declared dividends, payable January 28, 2014, in the following amount to shareholders of record on January 21, 2014:
Maple Leaf Resource Class, Series A (CDO100) – $3.2162 per share
The dividends were automatically reinvested in additional shares of the same class and series, and the issued and outstanding shares were consolidated such that the number of shares remains unchanged from the number outstanding immediately prior to the dividend payment such that the net asset value per share is not affected by the dividends.
A shareholder will be required to include the amount of the capital gains dividends received by the shareholder in income as a capital gain and this same amount will also be added to the adjusted cost base of the shares held by such shareholder. It is important to note that the total value of a shareholder’s investment will not change as a result of the dividend and subsequent share consolidation.
The capital gains were due to an increase in the value of certain divested securities in the portfolios or due to portfolio rebalancing. Maple Leaf Funds must distribute the net realized capital gains to shareholders.
