Horizons Exchange Traded Funds Launches 2 New Advisor Class ETFs

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Horizons Exchange Traded Funds Inc. ("Horizons ETFs") and its affiliate AlphaPro Management Inc. ("AlphaPro") are pleased to announce the launch of Advisor Classes for two of its ETFs.

The Advisor Classes are a new class of our existing ETFs.  Advisors will be directly compensated with a service fee on a trailing quarterly basis (the "Service Fee"). The only difference between the Adviser Classes and existing Class E units of our ETFs is that the Adviser Classes charge higher management fees that include the Service Fees paid to the advisor. The purchase and sale process for the Advisor Classes is identical to that of any other ETF listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Two Advisor Classes of the Horizons from the Horizons actively managed family of ETFs listed below will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") today.

The name, ticker symbols and Service Fee for the new Advisor Classes are as follows:

Name of ETF TSX Ticker Symbol Service Fee
Horizons Income Plus ETF HAP.A 0.50% annually
Horizons Tactical Bond ETF HAF.A 0.50% annually

The Advisor Classes have closed the offering of their initial units and will begin trading today on the TSX when the market opens this morning.
