ICM Crescendo Music Royalty Fund Announces Positive Increase in Distribution Rate

(August 2023 – Calgary, Alberta) ICM Crescendo Music Royalty Fund (“Fund”) is delighted to announce a substantial increase in distributions for its unitholders, reflecting the fund’s strong performance and growth in revenues. Effective immediately, the monthly distribution across all unit classes will be raised by 1 cent/month (12 cents/year) per unit, resulting in a 15.8% to 19% per unit increase on an annual basis. This is the Fund’s second and largest increase in distributions since the Fund launched in 2020.
