TORONTO, August 31, 2015 - Further to its announcement on June 30, 2015, First Asset Investment Management Inc. ("First Asset") announces that the exchange-traded funds (the "Funds") listed below were terminated effective upon the close of business today, August 31, 2015. The units of the Funds were delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange on August 25, 2015.
At the time of termination, each Fund's final net asset value ("Final NAV") per unit will be distributed on a pro rata basis among the Fund’s unitholders. In addition, immediately before the time of termination, unitholders of certain of the Funds will receive a final distribution consisting of net income and net realized capital gains not previously distributed by the Fund ("Final Distribution").
The Final NAV per unit and the Final Distribution (if any) for each Fund will be as follows:
|Fund Name||Ticker(s)||Final NAV per Unit||Final Distribution per Unit|
|First Asset All Canada Bond Barbell Index ETF|
|First Asset Morningstar Emerging Markets Composite Bond Index ETF|
|First Asset Active Canadian REIT ETF|
|First Asset Can-Financials Covered Call ETF|
|First Asset Government Bond Barbell Index ETF|
|First Asset Corporate Bond Barbell Index ETF|
|First Asset Can-60 Covered Call ETF|
For those Funds paying a Final Distribution, the Final Distribution will be automatically reinvested at a price equal to the Final NAV per unit of the applicable Fund and consolidated such that the number of units outstanding and the net asset value per unit of the Fund following the Final Distribution will not change. All payments will be made to unitholders on or about September 2, 2015 without any further action required by those unitholders.
