TORONTO – Ninepoint Partners LP (“Ninepoint”) is pleased to announce that Canadian Large Cap Leaders Split Corp. (the “Company”) has filed a preliminary prospectus dated December 19, 2023 in connection with an initial public offering of preferred shares (“Preferred Shares”) and class A shares (“Class A Shares”). A receipt for the preliminary prospectus has been issued by the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada.

The Company will invest in an initially equally-weighted portfolio comprised primarily of equity securities of Canadian Dividend Growth Companies (as defined below), selected by the portfolio manager, that at the time of investment and immediately following each periodic reconstitution and rebalancing: (i) are listed on a Canadian exchange; (ii) pay a dividend; (iii) generally have a market capitalization of at least $10 billion; (iv) have options in respect of its equity securities that, in the opinion of the portfolio manager, are sufficiently liquid to permit the portfolio manager to write options in respect of such securities; and (v) have a history of dividend growth or, in the portfolio manager’s view have high potential for future dividend growth (“Canadian Dividend Growth Companies”). 

The Preferred Shares will be offered at a price of $10.00 per share. The investment objectives for the Preferred Shares are to provide their holders with fixed cumulative preferential quarterly cash distributions in the amount of $0.1875 per Preferred Share ($0.75 per annum or 7.5% per annum on the issue price of $10.00 per Preferred Share), and to return the original issue price of $10.00 to holders upon maturity. The Preferred Shares have been provisionally rated Pfd-3 (high) by DBRS Limited.

The Class A Shares will be offered at a price of $15.00 per share. The investment objectives for the Class A Shares are to provide their holders with regular monthly non-cumulative cash distributions targeted to be $0.125 per Class A Share representing a yield on the issue price of $15.00 per Class A Share of 10% per annum and to provide holders with the opportunity for growth in the net asset value per Class A Share.

Prospective purchasers may purchase: (i) Preferred Shares or Class A Shares by a cash payment; or (ii) “Units” (each Unit comprised of one Preferred Share and one Class A Share) or Class A Shares by an exchange (the “Exchange Option”) of freely-tradeable listed securities of any eligible issuers (the “Exchange Eligible Issuers”) set forth in the preliminary prospectus. Prospective purchasers who elect to pay by using the Exchange Option must do so by depositing securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on January 22, 2024 in the manner described in the preliminary prospectus.
