TORONTO, January 16, 2017 - Further to its announcement on November 9, 2016, First Asset Investment Management Inc. ("First Asset") announces that the exchange-traded funds (the "Funds") listed below were terminated effective today. The units (or shares) of the Funds were delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange on January 13, 2017.
At the time of termination, each Fund's final net asset value ("Final NAV") will be distributed on a pro rata basis among the Fund's holders. All payments will be made to holders on or about January 20, 2017 without any further action required by those holders.
In addition, immediately before the time of termination, holders of First Asset Provincial Bond Index ETF will receive a final distribution ("Final Distribution") consisting of net income not previously distributed by the Fund. The Final Distribution will be automatically reinvested at a price equal to the Final NAV per unit of the 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 (except where there are non-resident unitholders to the extent tax is required to be withheld in respect of the distribution).
