Horizons Announces New Benchmarks for Certain ETFs

TORONTO – April 26, 2017 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs”) is pleased to announce that it has introduced new benchmark indexes for certain exchange traded funds, as set out in the table below (the “ETFs”).

The change from specified futures contracts to these new specified benchmark indexes, which each seek to track a specified futures contract (the “Indexes”), will provide investors in an ETF with the identical exposure to the applicable asset class to which the ETF is currently exposed, in a more cost efficient and transparent manner. There will be no change to the futures contract roll methodologies currently employed by the ETFs.

Effective after the close of trading today, the new underlying benchmark Index of each of the ETFs is as follows:

Ticker Until April 26, 2017 After April 26, 2017
HBU COMEX® gold futures contract for a subsequent delivery month Solactive Gold Front Month MD Rolling Futures Index ER

In all other respects, the investment objectives, strategies, restrictions, risk factors and fee structure (including the management fee and forward document expenses payable by the ETFs) remain the same. The change in benchmark will not affect or change the investment sectors, management fee, distribution policy or risk assessment relating to the ETFs.
