Scotia Global Asset Management announces estimated year-end reinvested distributions for Scotia ETFs

TORONTO, Nov. 24, 2023 /CNW/ - Scotia Global Asset Management today announced the estimated year-end reinvested distributions for the Scotia ETFs listed on the NEO for the 2023 tax year.

These distributions are typically reinvested in additional units of the respective Scotia ETF at year end, and do not include estimates of any monthly and/or quarterly cash distributions for the remainder of the year. The additional units will be immediately consolidated so that the number of units outstanding following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution.

These are estimated amounts only and have been calculated based upon forward-looking information as of October 31, 2023, so the actual distributions may differ materially from these estimates. We expect to announce updated estimates of the year-end reinvested distribution amounts (as well as any monthly and/or any quarterly cash distribution amounts, as applicable) on or about December 20, 2023. The record date for the 2023 final year-end distributions will be December 29, 2023, payable on January 8, 2024.

The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2023, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2024. Securityholders can reach out to their brokerage firm for this information.

The estimated reinvested distribution amounts are:
