Horizons ETFs Launches Advisor Class for its Long/Short Index ETF-continued

February 29, 2012--Horizons Exchange Traded Funds Inc. ("Horizons ETFs") and its affiliate AlphaPro Management Inc. are pleased to announce the launch of the Advisor Class of the Horizons S&P/TSX 60 130/30TM Index ETF ("HAH").
The Advisor Class is a new class of units of HAH through which advisors will be directly compensated with a service fee on a trailing quarterly basis (the "Service Fee"). The only difference between the Advisor Class units and the existing Class E units of HAH is that the Advisor Class charges a higher management fee that includes the 0.75% annual Service Fee paid to the advisor. The purchase and sale process for the Advisor Class is identical to that of any other exchange traded fund listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX").

The Advisor Class of HAH will begin trading on the TSX today under the ticker symbol HAH.A.

HAH seeks investment results, before fees, expenses, distributions, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, that endeavour to correspond to the performance of the S&P/TSX 60 130/30 Strategy Index™ (the "Long/Short Index").
