TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emerge Canada Inc. ("Emerge") today announced the final special year-end non-cash notional, reinvested income and capital gains distributions per unit (the "Distribution") for Emerge ARK ETFs for the 2020 tax year, following continued growth of the funds. There is a reduction in the distribution per unit previously announced for EARK, EAGB and EAAI as the number of units outstanding has increased.
The record date for the Distribution was December 22, 2020, payable on December 31, 2020. Details regarding the Distribution amounts are as follows:
Emerge ARK Global Disruptive Innovation ETF
Emerge ARK Genomics & Biotech ETF
Emerge ARK Fintech Innovation ETF
Emerge ARK AI & Big Data ETF
Emerge ARK Autonomous Tech & Robotics ETF
These annual non-cash capital gains and income distributions are typically reinvested in additional units of the respective fund at year-end. The additional units will be immediately consolidated with the previously outstanding units such that the net asset value per unit of the respective fund following the distribution and reinvestment is the same as it would have been if the distribution had not been paid.
The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2020, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2021.
Distributions for the Emerge ARK ETFs will vary from period to period. For further information regarding the Distribution, please visit www.emergecm.ca
