Tech Achievers Growth & Income Fund Announces Exchange Ratios

04/24/2015 | 08:19pm US/Eastern

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2015) - Harvest Portfolios Group Inc. (the "Manager"), on behalf of Tech Achievers Growth & Income Fund (the "Fund") is pleased to announce the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Fund (the "Exchange Option") being made under the preliminary prospectus of the Fund dated March 30, 2015.

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with (i) the opportunity for capital appreciation; (ii) monthly cash distributions; and (iii) lower overall volatility of Portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning Equity Securities of Technology Achievers directly.

The Fund will invest in an equally-weighted Portfolio of Equity Securities of 20 Technology Issuers, which are issuers listed on a North American stock exchange that are included in the information technology, health care equipment, health care technology, wireless telecommunication services or electrical components and equipment sub-sectors of the Global Industry Classification Standards and whose underlying business includes, but is not limited to, the provision of technology related goods and services and that at the time of investment (i) have a market capitalization of at least US$10 billion, and (ii) have options in respect of their Equity Securities listed on a recognized options exchange.

In order to seek to generate additional returns, Highstreet Asset Management Inc. (the "Options Advisor") may sell call options each month on up to 33% of each of the Equity Securities held in the Portfolio.

The Manager will be responsible for the execution of the Fund's overall investment strategy, including managing the composition of the Portfolio.

The indicative distribution amount will be $0.0583 per Unit per month ($0.70 per annum), representing an annual cash distribution of 7% based on the per Unit issue price.

The Exchange Ratio was determined by dividing the volume weighted average trading price of such securities on the TSX or other applicable exchange during the Pricing Period, as adjusted to reflect distributions declared by the applicable Exchange Issuer that will not be received by the Fund, by $10.00. For issuers that only trade in U.S. dollars, the U.S. dollar amount was converted to Canadian dollars using the Reference Exchange Rate on April 24, 2015. Holders of securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers who deposited such securities pursuant to the Exchange Option will continue to be holders of record up to but not including the date of the closing of the offering of Units and will be entitled to receive distributions in respect of such securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers that are declared up to but not including such date. The Exchange Ratios were rounded down to four decimal places. Fractional Units will not be issued by the Fund. Allocation of cash in respect of fractional Units to purchasers who have authorized the deposit of Exchange Eligible Securities through CDS will be at the discretion of the CDS Participant.

The table below sets out the name of the Exchange Eligible Security, TSX ticker symbol, CUSIP number, ISIN, the volume weighted average trading price during the Pricing Period adjusted for dividends and the Exchange Ratio.
