Invesco announces estimated 2012 distributions for TSX-listed PowerShares ETFs


Invesco has announced estimated 2012 annual distributions for the PowerShares exchange-traded funds (ETFs) listed on Toronto Stock Exchange.

Unitholders of record on 28 December 2012 will receive these distributions, which will generally consist of capital gains only.

The distributions 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.

These figures are estimates only, as of 16 November, and are subject to change prior to the 15 December taxation year-end of the ETFs. These estimates are for annual amounts only and do not include estimates of ongoing monthly or quarterly cash distributions.

Final year-end distribution amounts, as well as the ongoing monthly and quarterly cash distribution amounts, will be announced on or about 17 December 2012. The tax characteristics for all distributions declared in 2012 will be reported before the end of February 2013.
