SRV.UN - <span class="simulate_din_font">SIR Royalty Income Fund Announces March Distribution</span> (CAD 0.083)

Company: Sir Royalty Income Fund
Stock Name: SRV.UN
Amount: CAD 0.083
Announcement Date: 07/03/2012
Record Date: 14/03/2012

Dividend Detail:

BURLINGTON, ON, March 7, 2012 /CNW/ - SIR Royalty Income Fund (TSX:
SRV.UN) ("the Fund") today declared a cash distribution of $0.083 per
trust unit for the period February 1, 2012 to February 29, 2012. The
distribution will be payable on March 30, 2012 to unitholders of record
at the close of business on March 16, 2012.

The cash distribution of $0.083 per trust unit reflects the obligation
of the Fund to make tax payments as a result of certain legislative
changes to the tax treatment of income trusts, commonly referred to as
Specified Investment Flow Through Tax ("SIFT Tax"), effective January
, 2011.�� As announced in August 2010, the Fund continues to operate as
an income trust. The SIFT Tax applies to the Fund at the estimated
prevailing corporate tax rate of approximately 28.25% for 2011 and, as
a result, cash available for the Fund to distribute to Unitholders is
reduced by that amount.

As a result of the SIFT Tax effective January 1, 2011, cash
distributions to Unitholders are classified for tax purposes as
eligible dividends. Unitholders who are Canadian residents and hold
their Units in a non-tax deferred account may claim the dividend tax
credit for eligible dividends, which would if applicable reduce the
after tax impact of the SIFT Tax.��Unitholders are advised to consult
their own tax advisors to determine the impact of this change in tax
laws on the distributions from their investment in the Fund.
