Confirmed 2019 Annual Special Distributions For CI First Asset ETFs

/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA./

TORONTO, Dec. 31, 2019 /CNW/ - CI First Asset Exchange Traded Funds, a division of CI Investments Inc., announces the confirmed amounts of the annual special, year-end distributions (the "Special Distributions") for the 2019 tax year for its CI First Asset exchange traded funds ("CI First Asset ETFs"), as set out in the table below.

Each of the CI First Asset ETFs is required to distribute any net income and capital gains that it has earned in the year.  The Special Distributions will generally consist of capital gains and/or any excess net income at year end.  Other than in respect of CI First Asset High Interest Savings ETF, the Special Distributions will not be paid in cash, but will be reinvested and the resulting units immediately consolidated so that 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 investment. In all cases, other than CI First Asset High Interest Savings ETF, the Special Distributions will be reinvested on or about December 31, 2019 to unitholders of record on December 30, 2019. With respect to CI First Asset High Interest Savings ETF, the Special Distribution will distribute interest accrued between December 23, 2019 and December 31, 2019 and will be paid in cash on or about January 7, 2020 to unitholders of record on December 31, 2019. The ex-dividend date in each case is December 27, 2019, with the exception of CI First Asset High Interest Savings ETF which has an ex-dividend date of December 31, 2019.

These confirmed amounts are for the Special Distributions only and do not include the ongoing regular monthly or quarterly cash distribution amounts which were announced on December 12, 2019, in a separate press release.  These confirmed Special Distribution amounts replace the previous estimates announced on December 6, 2019. 

The actual taxable amounts of all distributions for the CI First Asset ETFs for 2019, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. or "CDS") in early 2020.
