TORONTO, December 6, 2021 – Hamilton Capital Partners Inc. (“Hamilton ETFs”) announced today the estimated non-cash distributions for the 2021 tax year for holders of certain of its exchange traded funds (“ETFs”). Those ETFs managed by Hamilton ETFs that are not included in the table below are not expected to have non-cash distributions for the 2021 tax year.
Please note that these are estimates only. Circumstances may arise that could cause these estimates to change before the ETFs’ applicable tax year ends on December 15, 2021.
ETFs are required to distribute any net income and capital gains earned in the year. The distributions labeled as “Estimated Annual Non-Cash Distributions per Unit” in the table below (“Non-Cash Distributions”) will not be paid in cash but will be automatically reinvested in additional units of the respective ETFs and immediately consolidated so that the number of units held by the unitholder and the net asset value of the ETFs will not change. The Non-Cash distributions will be reported as taxable distributions and will be used to increase each unitholder’s adjusted cost base for the respective ETF.
The estimated amounts shown in the table below do not include any estimates of the regular monthly or quarterly cash distributions. Hamilton ETFs expects to announce the updated estimates of the Non-Cash Distributions, as well as regular monthly and quarterly cash distribution amounts, on or about December 22, 2021. The ex-dividend date for all of these distributions (cash and non-cash) is anticipated to be December 30, 2021, for all unitholders of record on December 31, 2021. In early 2022, the tax characteristics of all 2021 distributions will be reported to brokers via CDS.
