Jade Power Issues Trust Units Under Unit Purchase Plan

TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jade Power Trust (“Jade Power” or the “Trust”) (TSXV:JPWR.UN) announces that an aggregate of 875,840 trust units in the capital of the Trust (the “Qualifying Units”) have been issued under the Trust’s Unit Purchase Plan (the “Plan”) at a price of $0.155 per trust unit. Under the terms of the Plan, each participant is entitled to receive a matching number of trust units acquired pursuant to the Plan at no cost to such participant (the “Deferred Matching Units”). Subject to certain conditions, the Deferred Matching Units will be issued to participants over a three year period following the date of the purchase of the Qualifying Units. As such, an additional 875,840 Deferred Matching Units may be issued in three equal tranches over a three year period. As a result of the issuance of such Deferred Matching Units, the number of trust units issuable under the Plan will have reached the maximum available under the Plan and therefore no further issuances of Deferred Matching Units will be permitted under the terms of the Plan unless the Plan is amended pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. In addition, no members of management or executive directors of the Trust currently hold any options or restricted trust units exercisable or convertible into trust units.
