Bird Construction (BDT.un) did not increase its distribution as you wrote. It must be a mistake.


I have asked my data supplier to review as I cannot find any news release which would confirm the distribution increase either.

Actually, Metro announced this increase in its dividend in February (Lado posted on Feb 4). Note that the press release says the dividend is an 8.7% increase "over the same quarter last year". Tricky, eh?

Davis + Henderson Announcement

Davis + Henderson also announced its intent to increase its distributions for the month of May 2008, payable on June 30, 2008, to $0.1533 per unit (equivalent to $1.84 per unit annualized), subject to normal course regulatory requirements. This represents a 7.2% increase over distributions declared for the month of April 2008, which were equivalent to $1.72 per unit annualized. This increase in distributions recognizes the recent performance of the business, expectations of future performance and the need for the Fund to pay distributions sufficient to ensure the Fund itself is not taxable.
