view original post

TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2021 /CNW/ – BMO Asset Management Inc. and BMO Investments Inc. today announced the estimated 2021 annual reinvested distributions for BMO Exchange Traded Funds (BMO ETFs) and ETF Series of the BMO Mutual Funds (ETF Series)1. These annual reinvested distributions generally represent realized capital gains and special income within the BMO ETFs and ETF Series, and are paid to unitholders, as required, to ensure that the BMO ETFs and ETF Series are not liable for ordinary income tax.

Unitholders of record at close of business on December 30, 2021 will receive the 2021 annual reinvested distributions. The final year-end distribution amounts, as well as the ongoing cash distribution amounts, are expected to be announced on December 20, 2021. The actual taxable amounts, including the tax characteristics, will be reported in 2022.

Please note that these are estimated annual reinvested distributions only and have been calculated based upon forward-looking information as of October 22, 20212. If the forward-looking information changes, the estimated annual reinvested distributions may also change.

These estimates are for the annual reinvested distributions only and do not include estimates of ongoing cash distribution amounts.

Details of the per-unit estimated annual reinvested distribution amounts are as follows:
