1 The target annual distribution rate is not a projection or prediction of future results of the Fund. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve the target distribution rate or any particular level of return. Actual results may vary significantly from the target distribution rate.
The offering of IPO Units is only made by prospectus. The prospectus contains important detailed information about the securities being offered. Copies of the prospectus may be obtained from a registered representative of any of the dealers listed in the prospectus. Investors should read the prospectus before making an investment decision.
You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell Class A Units of the Fund on the Toronto Stock Exchange. If the Class A Units are purchased or sold on the Toronto Stock Exchange, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying Class A Units of the Fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.
There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning securities of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in these documents. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
The Units have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or the securities laws of any state of the United States, and may not be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, in the United States (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable securities laws of any state of the United States or in reliance on an exemption from such registration requirements. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Fund’s securities referred to herein in the United States.
Investors should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The prospectus, which contains this and other information about the Fund, should be read carefully before investing. The Fund is a newly organized, non-redeemable investment fund, also known as a “closed-end fund”. The Fund is not a complete investment program. Substantially all of the Fund’s portfolio may consist of below investment grade securities (commonly referred to as “high yield” securities or “junk bonds”). An investment in the Fund involves a high degree of risk and should be considered speculative.
You could lose some or all of your investment. For a summary of the risks of an investment in the Fund, please see the “RISK FACTORS” section of the prospectus. Consult your financial advisor before investing. Securities of the Fund are not redeemable at net asset value.
This is not an offer to sell these securities and not a solicitation of an offer to buy these securities in any province or territory where the offer or sale is not permitted and should be accompanied by the prospectus. Before you invest, you should carefully read the Fund’s prospectus and consider carefully the risks you assume when you invest in the Fund’s units. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives or be able to structure its investment portfolio as anticipated
Investments made by the Fund and the results achieved by the Fund are not expected to be the same as those made by any other PIMCO-advised fund, including those with a similar name, investment objective or policies. A new or smaller fund’s performance may not represent how the Fund is expected to or may perform in the long-term. New funds have limited operating histories for investors to evaluate and new and smaller funds may not attract sufficient assets to achieve investment and trading efficiencies. The Fund may be forced to sell a comparatively large portion of its portfolio to meet significant unitholder redemptions for cash, or hold a comparatively large portion of its portfolio in cash due to significant unit purchases for cash, in each case when the Fund otherwise would not seek to do so, which may adversely affect performance.
A word about risk: As a new fund, the Fund has no operating history for investors to evaluate and new and smaller funds may not attract sufficient assets to achieve investment and trading efficiencies. The Fund has a limited term provision. Unless the limited term provision is amended or the Fund converts to perpetual existence, the Fund will terminate on or about the Termination Date (as defined in the prospectus). Investors may receive more or less than their original investment upon termination. Investing in the bond market is subject to risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and low interest rate environments increase this risk. Reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Investing in foreign-denominated and/or -domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Sovereign securities are generally backed by the issuing government. Obligations of U.S. government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees, but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. government. Portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value. High yield, lower-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. The use of leverage may cause a portfolio to liquidate positions when it may not be advantageous to do so to satisfy its obligations or to meet segregation requirements. Leverage, including borrowing, may cause a portfolio to be more volatile than if the portfolio had not been leveraged. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks, such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure against loss.
The Fund may invest directly or indirectly in securities of stressed or distressed issuers, which include securities at risk of being in default as to the repayment of principal and/or interest at the time of acquisition by the Fund or that are rated in the lower rating categories by one or more nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (for example, Ca or lower by Moody’s or CC or lower by S&P or Fitch) or, if unrated, are determined by PIMCO to be of comparable quality. Debt instruments of below investment grade quality (below Baa3 by Moody’s or below BBB- by S&P or Fitch) are regarded as having predominantly speculative characteristics with respect to capacity to pay interest and to repay principal, and are commonly referred to as “high yield” securities or “junk bonds.” Debt instruments in the lowest investment grade category also may be considered to possess some speculative characteristics. The Fund may, for hedging, investment or leveraging purposes, make use of credit default swaps, which are contracts whereby one party makes periodic payments to a counterparty in exchange for the right to receive from the counterparty a payment equal to the par (or other agreed-upon) value of a referenced debt obligation in the event of a default or other credit event by the issuer of the debt obligation.
