TORONTO – February 4, 2022 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs”) is announcing the following amendment to the year-end annual non-cash reinvested distribution amounts per unit (the “Non-Cash Distributions”) disclosed for the exchange traded funds (the “ETFs”) in the press release dated December 31, 2021.
The Non-Cash Distribution rates are amended for the following ETF:
|Horizons Active Global Dividend ETF (“HAZ”)||HAZ||$0.22||$nil|
The ex-dividend date for the Non-Cash Distributions was December 31, 2021, for all unitholders of record on December 31, 2021 (the “Unitholders”). The Non-Cash Distributions were reinvested automatically in additional units of the ETFs and immediately consolidated so that the number of units held by each Unitholder, the units outstanding of the ETFs, and the net asset value of the ETFs, did not change as a result of the Non-Cash Distributions.
No distribution of cash is being made to Unitholders of HAZ, this amended distribution will be recorded as a reinvested distribution into the creation of new units of HAZ as at December 31, 2021. Due to the fact that this distribution is effective for the 2021 tax year, the Unitholders of HAZ will be required to recognize this distribution in the 2021 calendar year for tax-reporting purposes.
