Scotia Global Asset Management announces estimated year-end reinvested distributions for Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios and Scotia Index Tracker ETFs

TORONTO, Dec. 22, 2020 /CNW/ - Scotia Global Asset Management today announced the estimated year-end reinvested distributions for the Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios listed on the TSX and the Scotia Index Tracker ETFs listed on the NEO for the 2020 tax year. Please note that these are estimated amounts only and have been calculated based upon forward-looking information as of December 11, 2020. As these are estimated amounts, the final distributions may change.

These are estimated year-end distributions of undistributed net income and/or capital gains. The distributions will be reinvested in additional units of the respective Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios or Scotia Index Tracker 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 30, 2020. The record date for the 2020 year-end distributions will be December 31, 2020.

The actual taxable amounts of reinvested distributions for 2020, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2021. Securityholders can contact their brokerage firm for this information.
