TORONTO, June 4, 2019 /CNW/ - Scotia Global Asset Management today announced a non-cash distribution for the Scotia Strategic Fixed Income ETF Portfolio listed on the TSX.  The non-cash distribution, as presented in the table below, will be made to all securityholders of record as at May 31, 2019, payable on June 7, 2019.

The Bank of Nova Scotia (CNW Group/Scotiabank)

The portfolio was considered a "financial institution" for purposes of the "mark-to-market" rules contained in the Income Tax Act (Canada). The portfolio ceased to be a financial institution when not more than 50% of the portfolio was held by one or more financial institutions which resulted in a deemed year-end for tax purposes. Accordingly, the portfolio is required to distribute the net income earned and arising from the realization of gains on mark-to-market property held by the portfolio at such time to securityholders.  

The distribution will be paid in the form of additional units of the portfolio. The additional units will be immediately consolidated so that the number of units outstanding following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution. Accordingly, each securityholder's aggregate adjusted cost base of units of the portfolio will increase. This non-cash distribution does not include the regular monthly cash distributions paid by the portfolio.

The tax characteristics of the distributions will be reported to CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2020. Securityholders can contact their brokerage firm for this information.

The non-cash distribution amount per unit is:
