Wasn't actually structured as an income trust but as an Income Depository Security that consisted of a common share and some debt paper clipped together. They are proposing to replace debt with more equity. Rights were issued to unitholders. This allows debt to be replaced with common shares. He feels it makes sense to exercise the Rights.

Operates funeral homes. Last year was particularly slow. Generally should be a stable business. US$ income that has been converted into Cdn cash flow, which has been a problem. Recently cut their distributions and are doing a rights issue and lowering their debt, which is positive but a bit dilutive. Fairly valued.

(Market Call Minute.) A company that has fallen off the radar screen and funeral homes is a steady business.

Very good management team. Won't be as impacted from the tax changes as it is mainly US operations. Because it is small cap, it seems to fly below everyone's radar. Would have liked to have seen a faster pace in consolidations and acquisitions.

Funeral home operator. This is an industry that consolidates from time to time. Substantial US exposure, so there is currency risk.

Cemeteries and cremation services. A US IPS, so it’s not an income trust and won't be impacted by legislation. Did well in Q1. Would like them to get debt levels down. Payout ratio of about 90%.

Funeral services in the US. Technically not an income trust, but an Income Participation Security. Doesn't feel it is subject to the new income trust rules. Non-cyclical. A great long-term business. Good yield of about 12%.

Funeral home and cemetery business. This will not be affected by the proposed legislation. Debt levels are a bit too high. Payout ratio is also too high.

Funeral homes across the US. Stable business. Recession proof. Foreign exchange risk. Manageable debt. If you are a bull on the US$, it would be a good stock to own.

Funeral home operator. Operate out of 27 US states as well as in Ontario. More deaths are fuelling their growth, but attitudes to cremation have changed and % of cremations are expected to rise, which will squeeze margins. 12% yield. There is still growth here.
