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

TORONTO , Dec. 20, 2023 /CNW/ - Scotia Global Asset Management today announced the estimated year-end reinvested distributions for the Scotia ETFs listed on the NEO Exchange for the 2023 tax year. Please note that these are estimated amounts only and have been calculated based upon information as of December 15, 2023.  The final distributions may change due to subscriptions or redemptions activity before the ex-dividend date or other factors.

These are estimated year-end distributions which will be reinvested in additional units of the respective Scotia ETFs and do not include any cash distribution amounts for December. 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.

We expect to announce the final year-end reinvested distribution amounts on or about December 28, 2023. The record date for the 2023 year-end distributions will be December 29, 2023, payable on January 8, 2024.

The actual taxable amounts of reinvested 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 contact their brokerage firm for this information.

The estimated reinvested distribution amounts per unit and payable dates are:
