BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited announces today the estimated annual reinvested distributions for the iShares exchange-traded funds for the 2012 tax year. These annual reinvested distributions generally represent realized capital gains within the funds. The reinvested distributions are not paid in cash but will be reported as taxable distributions and can be used to increase the investor's adjusted cost base of the fund. These estimated reinvested distributions do not include the fourth quarter cash distributions which are reported in a separate press release. These estimates replace the previous estimates issued in a press release dated November 19, 2012.

The ex-dividend date will be December 24, 2012. The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2012, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc.) early in 2013.

The following chart shows the estimated annual reinvested distributions per unit for each of the iShares funds. Unitholders of record on December 28, 2012 for the fund listed in the chart below will receive reinvested distributions payable on January 3, 2013.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
