BMO Asset Management is to terminate BMO 2015 Corporate Bond Target Maturity ETF, BMO 2020 Corporate Bond Target Maturity ETF, and BMO 2025 Corporate Bond Target Maturity ETF, on or about 7 August, 2015.
Pursuant to the declaration of trust governing the Funds, the Manager may terminate the Funds on not fewer than 60 days' notice to unitholders.
Effective 29 May, no further direct subscriptions for units of the Funds have been accepted by the Manager. The rights of unitholders of the Funds to exchange or redeem units of the Funds will cease as and from the Termination Date. All units of the Funds held by investors after such date will be subject to a mandatory redemption as of the Termination Date.
On or about the Termination Date, the Manager will convert the Funds' portfolios to cash, to the extent practicable. Upon the Termination Date, each Fund's property remaining after paying or providing for the relevant Fund's liabilities and obligations will be distributed pro rata among the Funds' respective unitholders based on the net asset value per unit of the Fund that is held by such unitholders.
The Manager will request the TSX to de-list units of the Funds from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") on or about 4 August, 2015. Until such date, units of the Funds will continue to be listed on the TSX.
