Announces Revised Estimated 2013 Annual Capital Gains Distributions For First Asset ETFs

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 17, 2013) -

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

Further to its announcement on November 27, 2013, First Asset Investment Management Inc., today announces revised estimated annual capital gains distributions for the First Asset ETFs listed below for the 2013 tax year. These amounts are for the year-end capital gains distributions only and do not include the ongoing monthly or quarterly cash distribution amounts which were reported today in a separate press release. The annual capital gains 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, the distribution will be paid on or before January 6, 2014, to unitholders of record on December 30, 2013. The ex-dividend date in each case is December 24, 2013.

The actual taxable amounts of all distributions (cash and reinvested) for 2013, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. or "CDS") in early 2014.
