ULTIMUS MANAGERS TRUST
RYAN LABS LONG CREDIT FUND
Supplement to the Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information, each dated March 29, 2020 and supplemented on October 16, 2020 and on November 5, 2020
Effective immediately, Ryan Labs Long Credit Fund (the “Fund”), a series of the Ultimus Managers Trust (the “Trust”), has terminated the public offering of its shares and will discontinue its operations effective February 25, 2021. Shares of the Fund are no longer available for purchase and, at the close of business on February 25, 2021, all outstanding shares of the Fund will be redeemed at net asset value (the “Transaction”).
The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of the Trust, in consultation with the Fund’s investment adviser, Sun Life Capital Management (U.S.), LLC (d/b/a SLC Management) (the “Adviser”), determined and approved at a meeting held on January 21, 2021 (the “Meeting”) to discontinue the Fund’s operations based on, among other factors, the Adviser’s belief that it would be in the best interests of the Fund and its shareholders to discontinue the Fund’s operations. Through the date of the Transaction, the Adviser will continue to waive investment advisory fees and reimburse expenses of the Fund, as necessary, in order to maintain the Fund at its current expense limit, as specified in the Prospectus.
At the Meeting, the Board directed that: (i) all of the Fund’s portfolio securities be liquidated in an orderly manner not later than February 25, 2021; and (ii) all outstanding shareholder accounts on February 25, 2021 be closed and the proceeds of each account be sent to the shareholder’s address of record or to such other address as directed by the shareholder, including special instructions that may be needed for Individual Retirement Accounts (“IRAs”) and qualified pension and profit sharing accounts. As a result of the Transaction, the Fund’s portfolio holdings will be reduced to cash or cash equivalent securities. Accordingly, going forward, shareholders should not expect the Fund to achieve its stated investment objectives.
Shareholders may continue to freely redeem their shares on each business day prior to the Transaction.
The Transaction will be considered for tax purposes a sale of Fund shares by shareholders, and shareholders should consult with their own tax advisors to ensure its proper treatment on their income tax returns. For shareholders that own shares of the Fund in an IRA or other tax-deferred account, this supplement is notification that the IRA custodian is resigning its services related to their account for the Fund effective on February 25, 2021. In addition, shareholders invested through an IRA or other tax-deferred account should consult the rules regarding the reinvestment of these assets. In order to avoid a potential tax issue, shareholders generally have 60 days from the date that proceeds are received to re-invest or “rollover” the proceeds in another IRA or qualified retirement account; otherwise the proceeds may be required to be included in the shareholder’s taxable income for the current tax year. Any IRA automatically redeemed on February 25, 2021 will be subject to a mandatory 10% federal tax withholding, likely adversely impacting your ability to rollover your proceeds at a new IRA custodian.
