Volume Weighted Average Trading Price
On April 15, 2013, Brookfield Asset Management Inc. paid a special dividend of one unit of Brookfield Property Partners L.P. (“BPY”) per 17.42 shares held by shareholders of record as of March 26, 2013. On April 15, 2013, the units commenced trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) and the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) under the symbols “BPY” and “BPY.UN,” respectively. Generally, the tax cost of your BPY units received via the dividend should equal their fair market value on that date. Neither U.S. nor Canadian tax rules specify the method to determine fair market value in this situation. However, a commonly used method is the weighted average trading price of the units on the NYSE and TSX for the five trading days commencing on April 15, 2013 which is USD 21.8271 and CAD 22.3805 respectively.
