SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN-T) announced the reduction of its monthly cash distributions to unitholders by 1.75 cents “due to the recent and ongoing decline in SIR Corp.'s food and beverage sales.” The fund’s monthly cash distributions will be reduced from 10.5 cents per unit to 8.75 cents per unit, effective the November distribution.

“SIR has advised the trustees of the fund that same-store sales for its fiscal 2019 fourth quarter and year ended August 25, 2019 declined by 5.9% and 3.1%, respectively,” the company stated. “SIR has further advised the trustees of the fund that its same-store sales performance has not improved in the first four weeks of its fiscal 2020 first quarter. The trustees believe that the reduction in monthly cash distributions will position the fund to meet its target payout ratio of 100% per annum over the long term.”
