Sprott 2015 Flow-Through Limited Partnership Completes Initial Public Offering on CEE Units
TORONTO, April 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sprott Asset Management LP ("Sprott") is pleased to announce that the Sprott 2015 Flow-Through Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") has completed the third and final closing of its initial public offering of CEE limited partnership units (the "CEE Units") pursuant to a prospectus dated January 30, 2015 offering CEE Units and CDE limited partnership units (the "CDE Units"). The Partnership issued an additional 209,898 CEE units for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $21 million.
Investment Objective of the Partnership
The Partnership's investment objective is to achieve capital appreciation and significant tax benefits for Limited Partners by investing in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares and other securities, if any, of resource issuers.
Attractive Tax-Reduction Benefits
Flow-through partnerships are one of the most effective tax reduction strategies available to Canadians. Sprott anticipates that investors participating in the Partnership will be eligible to receive a tax deduction in 2015 that is approximately 100% of the amount invested in the Partnership in respect of the CEE Units, based on certain assumptions as set forth in the prospectus. An investment in the CDE Units is anticipated to deliver a tax deduction that is approximately 100% of the amount invested spread out over three years, based on certain assumptions as set forth in the prospectus.
The Partnership will be managed by Sprott, one of Canada's leading investors in small and mid- cap resource companies, with approximately $5.3 billion (as at December 31, 2014) dedicated to the sector. Over its long history of investing in the resource sector, Sprott has developed relationships with hundreds of companies. Its experienced team of portfolio managers is supported by a team of technical experts with extensive backgrounds in mining and geology.
