BlackRock® Canada Announces Estimated 2019 Annual Reinvested Capital Gains Distributions for the iShares® ETFs

GlobeNewswire

Reading Time: 6 minutes

TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited (“BlackRock Canada”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK), today announced the estimated 2019 annual reinvested capital gains distributions for the iShares ETFs listed on the TSX or NEO. Please note that these are estimated capital gains amounts only, as of October 31, 2019.  As these are estimated amounts, the final capital gains distributions may change by the Funds’ December 15, 2019 or December 31, 2019, in the case of iShares Premium Money Market ETF (“CMR”), 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 periodical (e.g. monthly, quarterly, semi-annually 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 2019, on or about December 20, 2019. The record date for the 2019 annual distributions will be December 31, 2019, payable on January 6, 2020. The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions 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.

TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited (“BlackRock Canada”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of BlackRock, Inc. (“BlackRock”) (NYSE: BLK), today announced an upcoming unit split of the Dynamic iShares Active U.S. Mid-Cap ETF (“DXZ”), which is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”). The unit split will be payable on December 17, 2019 (the “Payment Date”), to Unitholders of record of DXZ on December 16, 2019 (the “Record Date”). The units of DXZ will trade on a “due bill” basis, as described below, at the opening of the TSX on December 13, 2019 to December 17, 2019, inclusive (the “due bill period”).  DXZ will begin trading on the TSX on a split-adjusted basis on December 18, 2019.  

The “split ratio” shown below indicates the number of units that a unitholder of DXZ will hold after the split in relation to the number of units held by the unitholder before the split.

ETF Name TSX Ticker Split Ratio
Dynamic iShares Active U.S. Mid-Cap ETF DXZ 3:1

When a unit split occurs, the net asset value per unit is decreased by the split ratio so that the unit split has no impact on the value of the investor’s total unit position. An investor’s cost per unit is also decreased by the same split ratio, although their total cost remains unchanged. Unitholders of DXZ on the Record Date will be entitled to receive two additional units of DXZ for every unit of DXZ they own on that date.

The “due bill” trading procedures of the TSX will apply to DXZ’s split of its units.  A due bill is an entitlement attached to listed securities undergoing a corporate action, such as a unit split. Any trades that are executed on the TSX during the due bill period will be identified to ensure purchasers of the units of DXZ receive the entitlement to the unit split. The due bill redemption date is expected to be December 19, 2019.

Unitholders do not need to take any action in connection with the unit split. Unitholders will have their brokerage accounts automatically updated to reflect the unit split. If unitholders have any questions regarding the impact of the unit split, they should contact their brokerage firm.
