BetaPro Management Inc. Expects No Capital Gains Distributions for 2010

TORONTO, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - BetaPro Management Inc. ("BetaPro"), the trustee and manager of the Horizons BetaPro Exchange Traded Funds (the "ETFs"), announced today that it anticipates that there will be no distributions paid on any of the ETFs for the current calendar year.

Each of the ETFs are required to distribute any net income and capital gains that they have earned in the year, however, after consideration of the applicable capital gains refund mechanism allowances and other tax considerations, BetaPro expects that none of the ETFs will be in a position to require such distributions.

"We anticipate that, for a fourth consecutive year, we will have achieved no capital gains distributions across our entire ETF family," said Howard Atkinson, President of BetaPro. "We are extremely pleased that our exchange traded funds continue to deliver tax efficiency, a hallmark of ETFs, to investors."

Final distribution rates, if any, will be announced the first week of January 2011.
