Montreal, December 27, 2018 - Desjardins Global Asset Management Inc. (DGAM), acting as manager and portfolio advisor of the Desjardins Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), announces today the annual reinvested capital gains distributions final amounts for the Desjardins ETFs listed on the TSX. Unitholders of record on December 31, 2018 will receive the capital gains distributions payable in respect of these ETFs on or about January 8, 2019. The capital gains distributions will be reinvested and the resulting units will be immediately consolidated, so the number of units held by each investor will not change. Investors holding their units outside registered plans will have taxable amounts to report and an increase in the adjusted cost base of their units.
These final amounts are for the reinvested capital gains distributions only, and do not include the ongoing periodic cash distribution amounts which are being announced in a separate press release. These reinvested distributions generally consist of capital gains only.
