ETF Ticker Consolidation ratio
BetaPro Crude Oil 2x Daily Bull ETF HOU 1:20
When a share consolidation occurs, the net asset value per share is increased by the same ratio as the share consolidation so that the share consolidation has no impact on the value of the investor's total share position. An investor's cost per share is also increased by the same ratio as the share consolidation, although the total cost remains unchanged.
No fractional shares will be issued. Where the consolidation results in a fractional shares, the number of postconsolidation shares will be rounded down to the nearest whole share, in the case of a fractional interest that is less than 0.5, or rounded up to the nearest whole number, in the case of a fractional interest that is 0.5 or greater.
Horizons ETFs reserves the right to cancel or amend this corporate action, if it deems it appropriate to do so, before the effective date.
Shareholders of the ETF do not need to take any action to effect this transaction. Shareholders will have their brokerage accounts automatically updated to reflect the consolidation. A shareholder's broker may take several days to reflect this transaction in the shareholder's account. However, the shareholder is still able to trade the shares of the ETF during this time. If they wish to do so, Horizons ETFs recommends investors contact their broker by phone during the settlement period to trade the postconsolidation shares.
