NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR OVER UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES
Toronto, Ontario — June 17, 2014 - Transeastern Power Trust ("Transeastern" or the "Trust") (TSXV: TEP.UN) is pleased to announce today that it has confirmed its initial distribution of $0.00815 per unit. The distribution will be paid on July 15, 2014, in respect of the period from and including May 28, 2014 (being the closing date of the Trust's initial public offering) to June 30, 2014, to unitholders of record on June 30, 2014. On an annualized basis, the distribution is equal to $0.0875 per unit or a 8.75% yield based on a $1.00 initial issuance price.
The Trust, through its direct and indirect subsidiaries in Canada, the Netherlands and Romania, has been formed to acquire interests in renewable energy assets in Romania, other countries in Europe and abroad that can provide stable cash flow to the Trust and a suitable risk-adjusted return on investment. The Trust seeks to provide investors with long-term, stable distributions, while preserving the capital value of its investment portfolio through investment, principally in a range of operational assets, which generate electricity from renewable energy sources, with a particular focus on hydroelectric power.
The Trust intends to qualify as a "mutual fund trust" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act"). The Trust will not be a "SIFT trust" (as defined in the Tax Act), provided that the Trust complies at all times with its investment restriction which precludes the Trust from holding any "non-portfolio property" (as defined in the Tax Act).
