Oakville, November 22, 2019 – Harvest Portfolios Group Inc. (the “Manager”), on behalf of Harvest Canadian Consolidated Energy Fund (the “Fund”), is pleased to announce the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Fund (the “Exchange Option”) being made under the preliminary prospectus of the Fund dated October 29, 2019.

The Fund’s investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with: (i) quarterly cash distributions; and (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation through investments primarily in listed Equity Securities of companies operating in the Canadian Energy Universe.

In selecting the Canadian Energy Issuers from the Canadian Energy Universe, the Manager may give consideration to: (i) each issuer’s fundamental balance sheet position; (ii) each issuer’s opportunity for financial growth; (iii) production costs for commodity producing issuers; (iv) the experience of the issuer’s management team; (v) oil and natural gas production allocation; and (vi) overall portfolio energy sub-sector diversity. Approximately 80% of the Fund’s net assets will be invested in up to 19 Canadian Energy Issuers on an equal-weight basis (the “Canadian Portfolio”) and approximately, but not more than, 20% of the Fund’s net assets will be invested in the U.S. dollar denominated units of the Harvest Energy Leaders Plus Income ETF in order to gain exposure primarily to global Energy Issuers. The Canadian Portfolio will be reconstituted and rebalanced within 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter following March 31, 2020.

The Manager will be responsible for the execution of the Fund’s overall investment strategy, including managing the composition of the Portfolio.

The initial quarterly cash distribution target for the Fund is $0.12 per Unit per quarter ($0.48 per annum), representing an annual cash distribution of 4% based on the per Unit issue price.

The number of Units issuable for each security of an Exchange Eligible Issuer (the “Exchange Ratio”) was determined by dividing the volume weighted average trading price of such securities on the TSX or other applicable exchange during the period of three consecutive trading days ending on and including November 22, 2019 (the “Pricing Period”), as adjusted to reflect dividends or distributions declared by the applicable Exchange Eligible Issuer that will not be received by the Fund, by $12.00. Holders of securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers who deposited such securities pursuant to the Exchange Option will continue to be holders of record up to but not including the date of the closing of the offering of Units and will be entitled to receive dividends or distributions in respect of such securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers that are declared up to but not including such date. Each Exchange Ratio was rounded down to five decimal places. Fractional Units will not be issued by the Fund. Allocation of cash in respect of fractional Units to purchasers who have authorized the deposit of Exchange Eligible Securities through CDS will be at the discretion of the CDS Participant.

The table below sets out the name of the Exchange Eligible Security, ticker symbol, CUSIP number, ISIN, the volume weighted average trading price and the Exchange Ratio during the Pricing Period.
All capitalized terms used but defined herein are as defined in the preliminary prospectus.
