There is no guarantee that annual distributions will be made. Whether or not there is a distribution and/or the amount of any annual distribution may depend largely on the level of harvesting carried out by the LP, the value of the timber harvested and the value of distributions received from the LP’s interests in renewable energy projects.
The strategy will be to balance the level of distribution against the objective of providing tax efficient capital appreciation. Investors should not plan or invest on the basis that distributions will be made.
The LP is a long-term capital investment with the aim to generate a balance of income and capital returns, with the objective of maximising the overall return by the First Termination Date in May 2028. The LP’s portfolio consists of:
