Update: Invesco to terminate Invesco Emerging Markets Debt Fund in Canada

Assets to merge into Invesco Global Bond Fund

TORONTO, July 24, 2017 /CNW/ - Invesco Canada ("Invesco") announced today that it has received Canadian unitholder approval for the merger of Invesco Emerging Markets Debt Fund (the "Terminating Fund") into Invesco Global Bond Fund (the "Continuing Fund").

The merger proposal was initially announced May 25, 2017. Unitholders approved the merger and termination at a special meeting held today in Toronto. The merger and termination are effective in Canada only.

The merger will be effective at the close of business on July 28, 2017. Assets held in most series of the Terminating Fund will be transferred to the corresponding series of the Continuing Fund. The exceptions are Series D and Series PTFU, which will be terminated immediately prior to the merger, as these series do not exist for the Continuing Fund.
