Incorporation: The TD ETF is an open-ended exchange-traded mutual fund established as a trust under the laws of the Province of Ontario pursuant to a declaration of trust dated February 23, 2016 executed by TD Asset Management Inc., as trustee.
Manager and Trustee: TD Asset Management Inc.
Transfer Agent & Registrar: CST Trust Company at its principal offices in Toronto.
Fiscal Year End: December 31
Nature of Business: The TD ETF seeks to track, to the extent reasonably possible and before the deduction of fees and expenses, the performance of a broad U.S. equity market index that measures the investment return of large-capitalization U.S. stocks, hedged to the Canadian dollar. Currently, this TD ETF seeks to track the S&P 500® CAD Hedged index (or any successor thereto).
Distributions: Cash distributions, if any, on Units of the TD ETF are expected to be made quarterly. For each taxation year, the TD ETF will ensure that its net income and net realized capital gains have been distributed to Unitholders to such an extent that the TD ETF will not be liable for ordinary income tax thereon. To the extent that the TD ETF has not distributed the full amount of its net income or net realized capital gains in any taxation year, the difference between such amount and the amount actually distributed by the TD ETF will be paid as a "reinvested distribution". Reinvested distributions, if any, net of any required withholding tax, will be reinvested automatically in additional Units at a price equal to the NAV per Unit of the TD ETF and the Units will be immediately consolidated such that the number of outstanding Units of each TD ETF following such reinvested distribution will equal the number of Units of the TD ETF outstanding prior to the distribution.
Sponsor: Not applicable
Initial Issuance of Units: Pursuant to the terms of the Prospectus, Units will be issued and sold on a continuous basis and there will be no maximum number of Units that may be issued. Units sold in connection with the Offering for the TD ETF will amount to 200,000 CAD Units at a price of $15 per Unit.
