Business Wire 14-Mar-2018 5:59 PM
OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ivy Investment Management Co. today announced a quarterly distribution for the Ivy Focused Value NextShares exchange-traded managed fund. The distribution schedule and amount are as follows:
Ivy Focused Value NextShares (IVFVC)
Ex-Date Record Date Payable Date Amount
March 15, 2018 March 16, 2018 March 19, 2018 $0.04 per share
The distributions are expected to be paid from net investment income (regular interest and dividends). The final tax status of the distributions may differ substantially from this preliminary information, which is based on estimates, and the final determination of such amounts will be made in early 2019 when the Funds can determine earnings and profits for the 2018 fiscal year.
Shares of NextShares funds are normally bought and sold in the secondary market through a broker, and may not be individually purchased or redeemed from the fund. In the secondary market, buyers and sellers transact with each other, rather than with the fund. NextShares funds issue and redeem shares only in specified creation unit quantities in transactions by or through Authorized Participants. In such transactions, a fund issues and redeems shares in exchange for the basket of securities, other instruments and/or cash that the fund specifies each business day. By transacting in kind, a NextShares fund can lower its trading costs and enhance fund tax efficiency by avoiding forced sales of securities to meet redemptions. Redemptions may be effected partially or entirely in cash when in-kind delivery is not practicable or deemed not in the best interests of shareholders. A funds basket is not intended to be representative of the funds current portfolio positions and may vary significantly from current positions. As exchange-traded securities, NextShares can operate with low transfer agency expenses by utilizing the same highly efficient share processing system as used for exchange-listed stocks and ETFs.
Market trading prices of NextShares are linked to the funds next-computed net asset value (NAV) and will vary from NAV by a market-determined premium or discount, which may be zero. Buyers and sellers of NextShares will not know the value of their purchases and sales until after the funds NAV is determined at the end of the trading day. Market trading prices may vary significantly from anticipated levels. NextShares do not offer investors the opportunity to buy and sell intraday based on current (versus end-of-day) determinations of fund value. NextShares trade execution prices will fluctuate based on changes in NAV. Although limit orders may be used to control trading costs, they cannot be used to control or limit trade execution prices. As a new type of fund, NextShares have a limited operating history and may initially be available through a limited number of brokers. There can be no guarantee that an active trading market for NextShares will develop or be maintained, or that their listing will continue unchanged. Buying and selling NextShares may require payment of brokerage commissions and expose transacting shareholders to other trading costs. Frequent trading may detract from realized investment returns. The return on a shareholders NextShares investment will be reduced if the shareholder sells shares at a greater discount or narrower premium to NAV than he or she acquired the shares.
Risk factors: The value of the Funds shares will change, and you could lose money on your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Ivy Focused Value NextShares: The value of a security believed by the Funds manager to be undervalued may never reach what the manager believes to be its full value, or such securitys value may decrease. Investing in companies in anticipation of a catalyst carries the risk that certain of such catalysts may not happen or the market may react differently than expected to such catalysts, in which case the Fund may experience losses. The securities of many companies may have significant exposure to foreign markets as a result of the companys operations, products or services in those foreign markets. As a result, a companys domicile and/or the markets in which the companys securities trade may not be fully reflective of its sources of revenue. Such securities would be subject to some of the same risks as an investment in foreign securities, including the risk that political and economic events unique to a country or region will adversely affect those markets in which the companys products or services are sold. These and other risks are more fully described in the Funds prospectus.
