1.  With respect to Preferred Share Investment Trust (TSX: PSF.UN), the
    amount of the quarterly distribution has been lowered to $0.150 per unit
    (from $0.175 per unit). This reduction reflects the current defensive
    positioning of the Fund and the desire to conserve cash for the benefit
    of the Fund's NAV and for deployment into higher yielding opportunities
    as they are expected to become available. The Manager will continue to
    assess the amount of the distribution on a quarterly basis having regard
    to, among other things, the anticipated net cash flows, the net asset
    value and markets generally. There can be no assurance that the amount
    will not vary from quarter to quarter, or that the Fund will make any
    distribution in any particular quarter.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged.
