ROI Canadian High Income Mortgage Fund (RIH.UN), ROI Canadian Mortgage Income Fund (RIL.UN), and ROI Canadian Real Estate Fund (RIR.UN) (the "Funds") each use a derivative contract known as a forward purchase agreement. The maturity dates of the forward purchase agreements are January 16, 2017, November 1, 2013, and March 25, 2014 respectively. On March 21, 2013, the Federal Minister of Finance announced measures that would affect character conversion transactions where a derivative contract, such as a forward purchase agreement, is used to convert ordinary income into capital gains. The Funds will no longer be permitted to use forward purchase agreements with a term longer than 180 days and that are entered into or amended after March 20, 2013. This will result in ordinary income treatment for the derivative-based return once the forward purchase agreement matures.
