Invesco announces estimated 2012 annual distributions for TSX-listed PowerShares ETFs

TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Invesco today announced estimated 2012 annual distributions for the PowerShares exchange-traded funds (ETFs) listed on Toronto Stock Exchange. Unitholders of record on December 28, 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.

Note that these figures are estimates only, as of November 16, 2012, and are subject to change prior to the December 15, 2012 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 December 17, 2012. The tax characteristics for all distributions declared in 2012 will be reported before the end of February 2013.

Commissions, management fees and expenses may all be associated with investments in exchange-traded funds (ETF's).

Copies are available from Invesco Canada Ltd. at www.powershares.ca.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs. Please read the prospectus for a complete description of risks relevant to the ETF. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply to purchases and sales of ETF units.

Most PowerShares ETFs seek to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of an applicable Index and are not actively managed. This means that the Sub-advisor will not attempt to take defensive positions in declining markets but rather continue to provide exposure to the securities in the Index regardless of whether the financial condition of one or more issuers of securities in the Index deteriorates. In contrast, if a PowerShares ETF is actively managed, then the Sub-advisor has discretion to adjust that PowerShares ETF's holdings in accordance with the ETF's investment objectives and strategies.
