1The ex-distribution date (or ex-date) is the date that shares in the ETF began trading following the distribution. As a result, the per-share net asset value of the ETF was reduced by the amount of the per-share distribution on that date. Shareholders who purchased shares of the ETF on or after the ex-date were not eligible to receive distributions.
To receive a distribution, you must be a registered shareholder of the ETF on the record date, and must have placed the ETF trade prior to the ex-date. Distributions are paid to shareholders on the payable date. There is no guarantee that dividends will be paid.
All registered investment companies, including the Schwab Exchange-Traded Funds (Schwab ETFs) are obliged to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at year's end regardless of performance. Trading Schwab ETFs will also generate tax consequences and transaction expenses. Tax consequences of dividend distributions may vary by individual taxpayer.
