TORONTO, Nov. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited (“BlackRock Canada”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK), today announced the estimated 2021 annual reinvested capital gains distributions for the Dynamic Active ETFs listed on the TSX. Please note that these are estimated capital gains amounts only, as of October 29, 2021. As these are estimated amounts, the final capital gains distributions may change by the Funds’ December 15, 2021 tax year-end.
These estimates are for the annual non-cash capital gains distributions, which are typically reinvested in additional units of the respective funds at the year-end, and do not include estimates of ongoing periodic (e.g. monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual) cash distribution amounts. The additional units will be immediately consolidated with the previously outstanding units such that the number of outstanding units following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution.
We expect to announce the final annual reinvested distribution amounts, as well as the ongoing cash distribution amounts, as applicable, for 2021, on or about December 22, 2021. The record date for the 2021 annual distributions will be December 31, 2021, payable on January 6, 2022. The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2021, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. or “CDS”) in early 2022.
At a special meeting of unitholders of the of the ETF held on November 17, 2021, unitholders of the Fund approved the proposed change in trustee and manager of the ETF from BlackRock Canada to 1832 Asset Management L.P. BlackRock Canada expects that the change in trustee and manager will be implemented on or about December 3, 2021, subject to satisfying all closing conditions set out in the definitive agreement and obtaining the applicable regulatory and stock exchange approvals.
