BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited ("BlackRock Canada"), an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of BlackRock, Inc. (BLK), today announced the final annual reinvested distributions for the iShares® Funds listed below for the 2013 tax year, which will be paid in the form of reinvested distributions.

Reinvested distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional units of the respective iShares Funds rather than paid in cash, and do not include ongoing monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual cash distribution amounts or any additional capital gains distributions. The additional units will be immediately consolidated with the previously outstanding units such that the number of outstanding units following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution.

The ex-dividend date for the 2013 annual distributions will be December 27, 2013. The record date for the 2013 annual distributions will be December 31, 2013, payable on January 6, 2014. The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2013, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. or "CDS") in early 2014.

Please refer to the press release on November 19, 2013 for additional information regarding iShares High Quality Canadian Bond Index ETF and iShares Global Monthly Dividend Index ETF.
