MONTREAL, Sept. 21, 2022 - Fiera Capital Corporation (“Fiera Capital”) (TSX: FSZ) announced today that it intends to terminate imaxx Canadian Bond Fund and imaxx Equity Growth Fund (each a “Fund” and together the “Funds”) effective on or about December 21, 2022 (the “Termination Date”).

Fiera Capital will waive any short-term trading fees and redemption fees chargeable in connection with the redemption of units of the Funds prior to the Termination Date. Unitholders who do not redeem their units by the Termination Date will receive proceeds equal to their proportionate share of all property and assets of the Fund(s) attributable to the applicable class of the Fund(s) they own, which is expected to be the class net asset value per unit on the Termination Date multiplied by the number of units held for each Fund.
Registered plan unitholders who do not redeem their units by the Termination Date and who hold their units in client name will be switched to units of imaxx Short Term Bond Fund in lieu of receiving their proceeds in cash. In such case, Class A unitholders will receive Class A units of imaxx Short Term Bond Fund and Class F unitholders will receive Class F units of imaxx Short Term Bond Fund.
