AUM decreased by approximately $410 million during the nine months ended June 30, 2012 from $2,306 million as at September 30, 2011. The reasons for the decline are the end of a segregated fund agreement managed by Real Estate Asset Management effective February 2012 and the distribution to investors of the principal repayments received on loans in Private Corporate Debt's funds. Management fees and other income were $3.4 million in the latest quarter, down $0.6 million from $4.0 million in the comparable quarter of fiscal 2011. About half of this decline is due to the end of the segregated account managed by Real Estate Asset Management in February 2012, referred to earlier, and a decline in management fees in Retail Alternative Investments. Performance fees of approximately $0.9 million were recognized in the latest quarter, whereas performance fees of $5.4 million were earned in the prior year's quarter. Most of the performance fees in both quarters were from Real Estate Asset Management. Investment loss of $0.2 million in the current quarter represents unrealized and realized gains on investments by IAM in funds managed by the Corporation, whereas investment gains were $3.3 million in the prior year's quarter because the Corporation sold its real estate investment. EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2012 decreased to $0.3 million from $3.4 million in the prior year's comparable quarter due to the higher net performance fees in the prior quarter. Net loss and comprehensive income was $0.7 million or $0.02 per share in the current quarter versus net income of $3.8 million or $0.13 per share in the prior year's quarter. Loss before income taxes and non-controlling share of income was $0.4 million in the latest quarter. Income taxes of $0.2 million recognizes income taxes on profitable subsidiaries but does not include any potential benefit of tax losses incurred in the current quarter by the Corporation's other subsidiaries. Victor Koloshuk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said "management has taken steps to address continued operating losses in certain subsidiaries. We are also well advanced in the marketing of three institutional funds which should increase AUM significantly." The Board of Directors of the Corporation has approved payment of a regular annual dividend on its outstanding shares of $0.05 per common share which will be paid on September 6, 2012 to shareholders of record on August 20, 2012.
