TORONTO, Dec. 22, 2020 /CNW/ - Manulife Investment Management today announced the 2020 annual reinvested distribution estimates for Manulife Smart Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). These annual reinvested distributions generally represent realized capital gains within the ETFs. Please note that these are estimated amounts only as of December 8, 2020, and reflect forward-looking information which may cause these estimates to change.
Unitholders of record at close of business on December 31, 2020 will receive the 2020 reinvested distributions, if any. The distributions, if any, will not be paid in cash, but will be reinvested automatically in additional units of the respective ETFs and immediately consolidated so that the number of units held by each unitholder, the units outstanding of the ETFs and the net asset value of the ETFs will not change because of the distributions. Unitholders holding their units outside registered plans will have taxable amounts to report and an increase in the adjusted cost base of their investment.
The actual taxable amounts, if applicable, including the tax characteristics, will be reported to brokers through Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2021.
Please note that the cash distributions are reported separately and may be applicable for some ETFs making annual reinvested distributions.
Details of the reinvested distribution per unit amounts are as follows:
Manulife Smart Short-Term Bond ETF
Manulife Smart Core Bond ETF
Manulife Smart Corporate Bond ETF
Manulife Smart Dividend ETF
Manulife Smart U.S. Dividend ETF - Unhedged
Manulife Smart U.S. Dividend ETF - Hedged
