Important and time-sensitive information is set out below for investors who held National Housing Act Mortgage-Backed Securities (“NHA MBS”) issued by the Bank of Montreal (“BMO”) at any point in time between November 1998 and May 2003 (the “Claim Period”). These securities were guaranteed by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (“CMHC”).
As a result of a recalculation of indemnity payments owing in various pools of NHA MBS, a total of approximately C$2.5 million (including interest) is available for distribution. If you held the NHA MBS issued by BMO at any point during the Claim Period you may be entitled to an additional payment.
The affected NHA MBS pool numbers are listed below:
|Pool Number||CUSIP Number|
If you held one of the series listed above between November 1998 and May 2003, and you can prove that you did so, you may be entitled to a payment.
The amount of the payment that may be available to you depends on the particular pool of NHA MBS that you held, and how long you held that pool.
In order to receive any additional payment to which you are entitled, you must file a valid claim form, with proper proof of ownership and a declaration from the dealer/custodian (if necessary), with Deloitte, by 5:00 pm EST on August 31, 2011.
