Early today PTrader posted on the Reader Initiated Alerts page that Altura Infrastructure Partners suspended their preferred unit distributions. Thanks for the early post.
Altera is controlled by giant Brookfield Business Partners (BBU) which has assets of over $55 billion and one might have assumed that BBU would not let this happen–well think again.
Right now the 3 issues from Altera are trading in the $9.50/shares area–all down around $15/share.
All of these issues are ‘cumulative’, but there is no guarantee that these will be paid anytime soon as the company has struck a deal with their parent (BBU) for debt restructuring that will not allow dividends until certain milestones are met.
