Equicapita Income Trust and Equicapita Income LP (“Equicapita”) Resumes Distribution with Q1 Declaration
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, ATTENTION INVESTMENT EDITORS – May 31, 2022, Calgary
Equicapita is pleased to announce that it has resumed its distribution with an initial amount of $400,000 declared for Q1 2022. The distribution will be allocated to unitholders pro rata based on an individual unit’s accumulated preferred return, as a percent of the total accumulated preferred return for all units issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2022. The Q1 distribution will be paid on June 8, 2022.
The net normalized EBITDA forecast for 2022 is approximately $32M which results in more than a 10% increase over the prior year’s actual results. The first quarter EBITDA results were up over 100% from Q1 2021, resulting from the combination of organic and acquisition growth, the easing of government restrictions, improvements in the oil and gas sector, continued cost reduction initiatives focused on minimizing discretionary spending, as well as a general return to pre-pandemic conditions. Equicapita is well positioned to meet its targets for the year and based on current expectations continue to grow the quarterly distribution payments.
