Brompton Oil Split Corp. Announces Extension of Term and Preferred Share Distribution Rate

TORONTO, Jan. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (TSX: OSP, OSP.PR.A) As previously announced, the board of directors of Brompton Oil Split Corp. (the “Fund”) determined that it would extend the maturity date of the class A and preferred shares of the Company.   Today, the board of directors announces that the new term of the Fund will be 1 year to March 28, 2024. In addition, the distribution rate for the preferred shares (the “Preferred Shares”) for the new term from March 31, 2023 to March 28, 2024 has been increased to $0.80 per Preferred Share per annum (8.0% on the original issue price of $10) payable quarterly. The new Preferred Share distribution rate is based on current market rates for preferred shares with similar terms.   In addition, the Fund intends to maintain the targeted monthly Class A Share distribution rate at $0.10 per Class A Share.   

The Fund invests in a portfolio of equity securities of large capitalization North American oil and gas issuers, primarily focused on those with significant exposure to oil. The Manager believes that the Fund’s strategy is well positioned to participate in opportunities that are expected to continue in the energy sector.   

In connection with the extension, shareholders who do not wish to continue their investment in the Fund, will be able to retract Preferred Shares or Class A Shares on March 30, 2023 pursuant to a special retraction right and receive a retraction price that is calculated in the same way that such price would be calculated if the Fund were to terminate on March 30, 2023. Pursuant to this option, the retraction price may be less than the market price if the security is trading at a premium to net asset value. To exercise this retraction right, shareholders must provide notice to their investment dealer by February 28, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time). Alternatively, shareholders may sell their Preferred Shares and/or Class A Shares through their securities dealer for the market price at any time, potentially at a higher price than would be achieved through retraction, or shareholders may take no action and continue to hold their shares.
