Foresters Asset Management Announces Change to the Monthly Distribution Rate for the imaxx™ Canadian Fixed Pay Fund

Foresters Asset Management Inc. ("FAM" or the "Manager"), today announced changes to the distribution rate for the A8 and F8 classes of the imaxx Canadian Fixed Pay Fund (the "Fund"). These changes will take effect in June, 2018.

The Fund will be lowering its distribution rate for A8 and F8 class units from $0.08 per unit per month to $0.02 per unit per month. The change to the distribution rate will be implemented in June 2018 after the renewal of the imaxxFunds Simplified Prospectus in May 2018. The A8 and F8 classes will be renamed the A2 and F2 class, respectively. The Manager will not be making any further changes to the Fund and will be retaining the: A0, A3, A5, F0, F3 and F5 classes of the Fund and their respective target distribution rates.

FAM is making this change now to preserve the net asset value of the Fund and to provide distribution levels that FAM considers more appropriate for current market conditions and more sustainable for the long term, which FAM believes is what investors are looking for from the Fund.
