The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) has terminated its participation in Dividend Reinvestment Programs (“DRIP”) for Canadian securities for all events announced with a record date beyond March 31, 2014. Please note that this affects only beneficial holders who hold Class A Limited Voting Shares of Brookfield Asset Management through DTC participant brokers in the U.S. and who are currently enrolled in our DRIP. All such holders of record on May 31, 2014, the record date for our June 30, 2014 quarterly dividend payment, will receive a cash dividend rather than additional Class A Limited Voting Shares under our DRIP.
Please see the below link for the official notice from DTC, including information for U.S. beneficial holders who still want to participate in dividend reinvestment.
Registered shareholders of our Class A Limited Voting Shares who are resident in the United States may elect to receive their dividends in the form of issued Class A Limited Voting Shares at a price equal to the volume-weighted average price (in U.S. dollars) at which board lots of shares traded on the NYSE based on the average closing price during each of the five trading days immediately preceding the relevant dividend payment date on which at least one board lot of shares has traded, as reported by the NYSE ("NYSE VWAP").
Registered shareholders of our Class A Limited Voting Shares who are resident in Canada may also elect to receive their dividends in the form of issued Class A Limited Voting Shares at a price equal to the NYSE VWAP multiplied by an exchange factor which is calculated as the average noon exchange rate as reported by the Bank of Canada during each of the five trading days immediately preceding the relevant dividend payment date.
Utilization of the Plan allows current shareholders to acquire additional shares in Brookfield Asset Management Inc. without payment of commissions.
