TORONTO – February 4, 2022 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs”) has announced today that it intends to consolidate shares of the BetaPro Marijuana Companies 2x Daily Bull ETF (“HMJU” or the “Consolidating ETF”) as indicated in the table below.
After the close of trading on Friday, February 18, 2022, on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”), the shares of the Consolidating ETF will be consolidated on the basis of the ratio (the “Consolidation Ratio”) set out below:
|BetaPro Marijuana Companies 2x Daily Bull ETF||HMJU||1:5|
The shares of HMJU will begin trading on a post-consolidated basis on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, the effective date of the consolidation.
When a share consolidation occurs, the net asset value per share is increased by the same ratio as the share consolidation so that the share consolidation has no impact on the value of the investor’s total share position. An investor’s cost per share is also increased by the same ratio as the share consolidation, although their total cost remains unchanged.
No fractional shares will be issued. Where the consolidation results in a fractional share, the number of post-consolidation shares will be rounded down to the nearest whole share, in the case of a fractional interest that is less than 0.5, or rounded up to the nearest whole number, in the case of a fractional interest that is 0.5 or greater.
Horizons ETFs reserves the right to cancel or amend this corporate action if we deem it appropriate to do so, before the effective date of Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
Shareholders of the Consolidating ETF do not need to take any action to effect this transaction. Shareholders will have their brokerage accounts automatically updated to reflect the consolidation. A shareholder’s broker may take several days to reflect this transaction in the shareholder’s account (the “Settlement Period”). However, the shareholder is still able to trade the shares of the Consolidating ETF during this time. If they wish to do so, Horizons ETFs recommends investors contact their broker by phone during the Settlement Period in order to trade the post-consolidation shares.
