Horizons ETFs Announces December 2020 Distributions for Certain ETFs

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Dec. 22, 2020 /CNW/ - Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. ("Horizons ETFs") is pleased to announce the distribution amounts per unit (the "Distributions") for certain of its exchange traded funds (the "ETFs"), for the 2020 tax year end, as indicated in the table below.

Each ETF is required to distribute any net income and capital gains that they have earned in the year. All of the Distributions indicated as "Cash Distribution per Unit" in the table (the "Cash Distributions") will be paid in cash unless the unitholder has enrolled in the dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") of the respective ETF.

The estimated annual non-cash Distributions, indicated as "Reinvested Annual Non-Cash Distributions per Unit (Est.)" in the table (the "Non-Cash Distributions"), will not be paid in cash but will be reinvested and reported as taxable Distributions and will be used to increase each unitholder's adjusted cost base of their units of the respective ETF. The Non-Cash Distributions will be reinvested automatically in additional units of the respective ETFs and immediately consolidated so that the number of units held by the unitholder, the units outstanding of the ETFs and the net asset value of the ETFs will not change as a result of the Non-Cash Distributions. The annual Non-Cash Distribution rates in the table below are presented on an estimated basis. A press release confirming the final annual Non-Cash Distribution rates will be disseminated on or about the record date of the Distributions.

The ex-dividend date for the Cash Distributions is anticipated to be December 30, 2020. The record date for both the Cash and Non-Cash Distributions will be December 31, 2020. The Cash Distributions for units of each ETF will be paid in cash or, if the unitholder has enrolled in the respective ETF's dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP"), reinvested in additional units of the applicable ETF, on or about January 13, 2021. The nominal payment date applied to the Non-Cash Distributions will also be January 13, 2021, though in actuality there will be no physical payment made as would be the case with the Cash Distributions.

Horizons ETFs has made an additional announcement regarding the December distributions for its family of covered call ETFs in a separate press release.
