Equicapita Distribution Increases to Over 3.5% Annualized in Q1 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, ATTENTION INVESTMENT EDITORS – June 29, 2022, Calgary
Equicapita (Equicapita Income Trust and Equicapita Income LP) is pleased to announce that it has declared and paid a distribution for Q1 2023 in the amount of $2,000,000 which represents an annualized average yield for unitholders of over 3.5% (specific yield by series will vary based on headline distribution target of that series).
The distribution was 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, 2023 and declared and paid on May 31, 2023.
Equicapita is successfully executing its strategy of disaggregating its portfolio into three independent portfolio operating groups and continuing to add focused earnings in each of those verticals. The portfolio operating groups are in dental healthcare (Corpus Partners), royalties from master franchisors (Averine Partners) and light industrial (Preceptos Partners).
Equicapita has a 10-year track record in the mid-market private equity space and has generated a return to unitholders since inception of >10%1 annually while keeping return volatility <10% including operating through the 24-month economic dislocation of COVID shut-downs and net of fees.
