AGF Announces Final Distributions for AGFiQ ETFs for 2017

December 28, 2017 • Announcements

AGF Investments Inc. (AGF) today announced the final December 2017 cash distributions and annual 2017 reinvested capital gains distributions for the AGFiQ ETFs listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Unitholders of record of an AGFiQ ETF on December 29, 2017 will receive (i) the actual 2017 reinvested capital gains distributions payable in respect of that AGFiQ ETF on December 29, 2017; and (ii) the actual December 2017 cash distributions payable in respect of that AGFiQ ETF on January 4, 2018. The actual taxable amounts for 2017, including the tax characteristics, will be reported in early 2018.

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.

Details regarding the final “per unit” cash and reinvested capital gains distribution amounts are as follows:
