(1) Based on the period from September 20, 2019, to October 23, 2019, where the prior month's NAV (net asset value) per unit is
adjusted to include the prior month's distribution.

(2) Annualized and based on the applicable October 23, 2019, NAV per unit, which is available at www.HorizonsETFs.com.

(3) Annualized and based on the applicable September 20, 2019, NAV per unit, which is available at www.HorizonsETFs.com.

(4) The absolute change of the prior month's previously announced annualized distribution yield, to the current month's annualized
distribution yield.

 (5) Distributions for the Horizons Enhanced Income US Equity (USD) ETF are declared and paid in U.S. dollars, including those listed
under the Canadian dollar-traded ticker HEA. The approximate Canadian dollar equivalent distribution rate for HEA is $0.06818 per
unit.
For unitholders who hold the Canadian dollar-traded HEA, distribution payments will typically be converted to Canadian dollars
by the unitholder's account holder.

 

Each ETF does not have a fixed distribution but pays distributions monthly. Distribution rates are generally based on the average current volatility of the securities held by the ETF, along with any dividend income received, less expenses payable by the ETF. The amount of monthly cash distributions are expected to fluctuate from month to month, and there can be no assurance that an ETF will make any distributions in any particular month or months. Monthly distributions will be paid in cash, unless the investor has chosen to participate in the ETF's reinvestment plan.
