TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2011 /CNW/ - Horizons Exchange Traded Funds Inc. ("Horizons ETFs") and its affiliate AlphaPro Management Inc. are pleased to announce
the monthly distribution rate for the Horizons Gold Yield Fund (the "Fund") for September 2011 in the amount of $0.05083 per Class A unit and
Class F unit of the Fund. The Class A units of the Fund are listed for
trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") under the symbol HGY.UN. The Class F units of the Fund are not publicly listed.
This distribution rate is equivalent to $0.61 per annum or a yield of
6.1% per annum on the initial issue price of $10.00 per Class A unit
and Class F unit. The September distribution ex-dividend date is
anticipated to be September 28, 2011, for all Class A and Class F
unitholders of record on September 30, 2011. The distribution is
payable on September 13, 2011.
The Fund's investment objectives are to provide unitholders with: (i)
exposure to the price of gold bullion hedged to the Canadian dollar,
less the Fund's fees and expenses; and (ii) tax-efficient monthly
distributions. The Fund does not have a fixed distribution, but
generally sets distributions quarterly and pays distributions monthly.
It is expected that monthly distributions currently received by
unitholders will consist primarily of return of capital.
