Pacer Advisors, Inc. to Close and Liquidate the Pacer Military Times Best Employers ETF (VETS)
June 29, 2021 at 16:00 PM EDT
After careful consideration, the Board of Trustees of Pacer Funds Trust has determined to close and liquidate the Pacer Military Times Best Employers ETF (NASDAQ: VETS) (the “Fund”). Pacer Advisors, Inc. (“Pacer Advisors”) serves as the investment adviser to the Fund.
The Fund will be closed to orders for new creation units as of July 27, 2021 and the last day of trading of the Fund’s shares on the Nasdaq Exchange will be July 27, 2021. From July 16, 2021 through July 27, 2021, shareholders may only be able to sell their shares to certain broker-dealers, and there is no assurance that there will be a market for Fund shares during that time period. Customary brokerage charges may apply to such transactions. The Fund will liquidate on or around July 29, 2021 (the “Liquidation Date”).
Beginning on July 23, 2021, the Fund will be liquidating its portfolio assets. This will cause the Fund to increase its cash holdings and deviate from the investment objective and strategies stated in the Fund’s prospectus.
On or about the Liquidation Date, the Fund will liquidate its assets and distribute cash pro rata to all remaining shareholders. These distributions are taxable events. In addition, these payments to shareholders will include accrued capital gains and dividends, if any. As calculated on the Liquidation Date, the Fund's net asset value will reflect the costs of closing the Fund. Once the distributions are complete, the Fund will terminate.
