Claymore Advisors, LLC, is pleased to announce that the following Claymore BulletShares ® Corporate Bond ETFs (the “Claymore BulletShares ETFs”) have declared monthly distributions. The table below summarizes the distribution for each Fund. Since launching on June 7, 2010 the Claymore BulletShares ETFs have experienced growing interest from advisors and investors as demonstrated by the increases in daily trading volume and growth in shares outstanding during July, as provided below.
“We’re pleased with the market’s reception of the BulletShares ETFs,” said William Belden, Managing Director, Claymore Securities, Inc. “Much of the growth in the number of shares outstanding from June to July occurred as trading volume grew in the second half of July. However, the timing of the share growth, to a degree, diluted the income available to distribute to shareholders this month for certain ETFs in the suite. The tradeoff for shareholders is that those ETFs will experience a smaller NAV decline on the ex-dividend date.”
