Results of the special meetings of securityholders of National Bank Mutual Funds

16 December 2014 -

National Bank Investments Inc., the manager of the National Bank Mutual Funds, today announces the results of the proposal voted upon at the special meetings of securityholders of certain National Bank Mutual Funds held today.

During the meeting, securityholders of 35 National Bank Mutual Funds approved a change to the manner in which certain operating expenses are charged to the National Bank Mutual Funds.

Due to lack of quorum, the meeting of shareholders of National Bank AltaFund Investment Corp. did not proceed. Securityholders of the relevant series of National Bank Long Term Bond Fund voted against the proposal. Fixed-rate administration fees will not be implemented for National Bank AltaFund Investment Corp. nor for National Bank Long Term Bond Fund at this time.

For the funds having approved the proposal, the majority of the National Bank Mutual Funds’ operating expenses will therefore be replaced by fixed-rate administration fees, which will be subject to a transitional adjustment payment until December 31, 2015. This change shall come into effect on or about January 1, 2015.

National Bank Investments thanks its clients for their ongoing trust and support.
