TDS.PR.C, FBS.PR.C and BIG.PR.D Placed on Review-Developing by DBRS

I was a bit embarrassed to be so late reporting on the sale of the TD Sponsored Companies to Timbercreek, but I can take solace in the fact that DBRS was even later:

DBRS has today placed the following ratings Under Review with Developing Implications:

— Class C Preferred Shares, Series 1 rated Pfd-2, issued by TD Split Inc.
— Class C Preferred Shares, Series 1 rated Pfd-2, issued by 5Banc Split Inc.
— Class D Preferred Shares, Series 1 rated Pfd-2 (low), issued by Big 8 Split Inc.

On August 22, 2014, shareholders of TD Split Inc., 5Banc Split Inc. and Big 8 Split Inc. (collectively, the Funds) approved the proposed change in the administrator and investment manager of the Funds to Timbercreek Asset Management Ltd. from TD Securities. The transaction closed and became effective on September 19, 2014.

The rating actions reflect the fact that DBRS takes into consideration the quality of investment manager and/or administrator of the portfolio. Due diligence must be conducted to determine whether the change will be material to the ratings of the Funds.
