TORONTO, Dec. 31, 2013 /CNW/ - Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. and its affiliate AlphaPro Management Inc. (collectively "Horizons ETFs") confirm today the annual distribution of capital gains to unitholders of certain of the exchange traded funds that Horizons ETFs manages (the "ETFs") for the 2013 tax year as indicated in the table below. Please note that this is an update to the estimated annual capital gains distributions previously announced on December 18, 2013. Any ETFs that were previously estimated to have a nil capital gains distribution are confirmed as such.
Each of the ETFs is required to distribute any net income and capital gains that they have earned in the year. The annual capital gains 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 for the respective ETF. These amounts are for the annual capital gains distributions and do not include the regular monthly or quarterly cash distributions, as applicable, announced on December 18, 2013.
The ex-dividend date for these distributions was December 27, 2013, for all unitholders of record on December 31, 2013. In early 2014, the tax characteristics of all distributions for 2013 for the ETFs will be reported to brokers via CDS.
