Desjardins announces 2017 reinvested distributions

for the Desjardins Emerging Markets Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF

 

Montreal, April 9, 2018 - Desjardins Global Asset Management Inc. (DGAM), acting as manager and portfolio advisor of the Desjardins Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), announces that all previously undistributed net realized capital gains and net income of Desjardins Emerging Markets Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF (TSX: DFE) as of its December 31, 2017 taxation year-end, including such gains and income for the period December 15, 2017 to December 31, 2017, became payable to Unitholders as of December 31, 2017, except to the extent of net realized capital gains in respect of which the tax payable by the DFE would be refunded as a "capital gains refund".  Accordingly, DGAM announces the following additional reinvested distributions for the 2017 fiscal year of DFE.

Unitholders of record on December 29, 2017 became entitled to the reinvested distributions, which were payable on December 31, 2017. These distributions are not paid in cash and instead are automatically reinvested in additional units. Those additional units are immediately consolidated, so the number of units held by each investor, except in the case of a non-resident Unitholder to the extent tax is required to be withheld in respect of the distribution, will not change as a result of the distribution. In addition, the net asset value of the ETF does not change as a result of the distribution. Investors holding their units outside registered plans will have taxable amounts to report and an increase in the adjusted cost base of their units.
