Invesco PowerShares Provides Estimated Long-Term Capital Gains Information for 2011

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 12/16/11 -- Invesco PowerShares Capital Management LLC, a leading global provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), announced today that it expects to deliver zero long-term capital gains distributions across 114 of 116 equity and fixed-income ETFs for 2011.

"We strive to minimize the amount of capital gains incurred by our ETF portfolios. For the ninth consecutive year, we are pleased that the process has prevented capital gains distributions for the vast majority of PowerShares ETFs," said Ben Fulton, Invesco PowerShares managing director of global ETFs. "This highlights one of the many advantages ETFs can potentially provide shareholders seeking to maximize real returns."

Estimated 2011 Long-Term Capital Gains Distributions:
