Distributions and Automatic Reinvestment: It is anticipated that the ETF will make distributions to its Unitholders on a quarterly basis and such distributions will be paid in cash unless a Unitholder is participating in the Reinvestment Plan.

The ETF expects to distribute sufficient net income (including net capital gains) so that the ETF will not be liable for income tax in any given year. Additional distributions required to ensure the ETF is not liable for income tax, if any, are expected to be made annually at the end of each year where necessary. All such distributions will automatically be reinvested on behalf of each Unitholder in additional Units of the ETF at a price equal to the net asset value per Unit of the ETF on such day and the Units of the ETF will be immediately consolidated such that the number of outstanding Units of the ETF held by each Unitholder on such day following the distribution will equal the number of Units of the ETF held by the Unitholder prior to the distribution.
