AGF Announces Final Distributions for AGFiQ ETFs for 2018
TORONTO, Dec. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AGF Investments Inc. (AGF) today announced the final December 2018 cash distributions and annual 2018 reinvested capital gains distributions for the AGFiQ ETFs listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange or NEO Exchange.
Unitholders of record of an AGFiQ ETF on December 31, 2018 will receive (i) the actual 2018 reinvested capital gains distributions payable in respect of that AGFiQ ETF on December 31, 2018; and (ii) the actual December 2018 cash distributions payable in respect of that AGFiQ ETF on January 4, 2019. The actual taxable amounts for 2018, including the tax characteristics, will be reported in early 2019.
The annual reinvested capital gains distributions generally represent realized capital gains within the AGFiQ ETFs and will not be paid in cash, but will be reinvested in the form of a notional distribution and reported as taxable. A notional distribution is when the units from a reinvested distribution are immediately consolidated with the units held prior to the distribution. The number of units held after the distribution is therefore identical to the number of units held before the distribution. The unitholder’s adjusted cost base for the respective AGFiQ ETF may increase.
