Horizons ETFs Reduces Management Fee on Horizons S&P 500® Index ETF

TORONTO, April 1, 2016 — Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs”) is pleased to announce that it has reduced the management fee on the Horizons S&P 500® Index ETF (“HXS”) to 0.10% from 0.15%, effective immediately.

HXS, which is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange in both Canadian and U.S. dollars under the tickers HXS and HXS.U, seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the S&P 500® Index (Total Return), net of expenses.

“For taxable Canadian investors, HXS was already the most tax-efficient S&P 500 ETF listed in Canada and now with this lower management fee, its total after-tax return appeal will be even greater,” said Steve Hawkins, Co-CEO, Horizons ETFs.

HXS was also a recent recipient of a FundGrade A+® Award* and was the recipient of the 2015 Lipper Fund Award in the U.S. Equity category (for the three-year period ended July 31, 2015).**

“HXS is an award-winning U.S. Equity ETF, with low tracking error, high tax-efficiency and now, a very competitive management fee,” said Mr. Hawkins. “We think this is a winning combination for Canadian investors seeking index exposure to the S&P 500.”

*FundGrade rating system uses risk-adjusted performance figures to rank and grade Canadian investment funds. Based on up to 10 years of performance data, the ‘A+ Grade’ is strictly a quantitative calculation conducted on an annual basis, which results in a grade score ranking, according to the fund classification standards defined by the Canadian Investment Funds Standards Committee (“CIFSC”). The FundGrade rating is used with permission from Fundata Canada Inc., all rights reserved. Fundata is a Canadian investment funds data and analytics company. The FundGrade A+ Rating identifies funds that have consistently demonstrated the best risk-adjusted returns through an entire calendar year.

**The Lipper Fund Awards, granted annually, are part of the Thomson Reuters Awards for Excellence awarded by Lipper, Inc. and highlight investment funds that have excelled in delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers. The Lipper Fund Awards are based on the Lipper Ratings for Consistent Return, which is a risk-adjusted performance measure calculated over 36, 60 and 120 month periods. The highest 20% of investment funds in each category are named Lipper Leaders for Consistent Return and receive a score of 5, the next 20% receive a score of 4, the middle 20% are scored 3, the next 20% are scored 2 and the lowest 20% are scored 1. The highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return in each category wins the Lipper Fund Award. Lipper Leader ratings change monthly. For more information, see www.lipperweb.com.
