Excerpt of press release by Caxton-Iseman Capital
KCP Income Fund agreed to be acquired by private investment firm Caxton-Iseman Capital Inc. for C$804 million (US $695.5 million), signaling a potential new opening in the deals market for Canadian companies designated as income trusts.
The deal comes on the heels of an announcement last fall by the Canadian federal government to tax income trusts, which were set up to pass income directly to shareholders.
KCP, which makes consumer products such as laundry detergents, household cleaners, personal-care items and over-the-counter medicines, formed a special committee in November to oversee a strategic review.
Atlas Advisors acted as financial advisor to Caxton-Iseman Capital in connection with this transaction.
