Horizons Gold Yield Fund Announces September 2011 Distribution

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.
