FTN.PR.A Dividend Rate Raised 25bp for One Year

Quadravest has announced:

Financial 15 Split Corp. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Preferred Share dividend rate for the fiscal year beginning December 1, 2017. Monthly payments to FTN.PR.A will be $0.04583 per share for an annual yield of 5.50% on their $10 redemption value. This is an increase of one quarter of one percent over the current rate.

The Company invests in an actively managed, high quality portfolio consisting of 15 financial services companies made up of Canadian and U.S. issuers as follows:

Bank of Montreal National Bank of Canada Bank of America Corp.
The Bank of Nova Scotia Manulife Financial Corporation Citigroup Inc.
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Sun Life Financial Services of Canada Inc. Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
Royal Bank of Canada Great-West Lifeco Inc. JP Morgan Chase & Co.
The Toronto-Dominion Bank CI Financial Corp. Wells Fargo & Co.

This is a rather peculiar action for them to take, particularly so soon after their recent treasury offering and given that the liquidation date for the company is 2020-12-1 (which the company may extend at will, but only while giving retraction rights to shareholders). I believe we are now in the position of waiting for the other shoe to drop!
