Adventus Opportunity Fund ("AOF") by its Trustee, Adventus Opportunity Services Inc. announces the termination of its distribution reinvestment plan (the "DRIP"), effective July 23, 2019, pursuant to which unitholders had been able to elect to receive cash distributions in the form of additional AOF Units in lieu of the cash payment. Accordingly, distributions expected to be payable to AOF Unitholders of record on July 31, 2019 will be paid by cheque or direct deposit on August 15, 2019.
DRIP participants as of the termination date, July 23, 2019, will receive certificates for whole AOF Units held for the participants’ account under the DRIP and cash payments will be made for any fractional AOF Units held under the DRIP.
As announced in our news release of July 19, 2019, the approved plan of arrangement will result in the merger of Adventus Realty Trust ("ART") and AOF. Holders of units of AOF will receive, for each AOF Unit held, 0.6651 of an ART Unit.
