Distributions and Automatic Reinvestment: The ETF will not make regular distributions. The ETF will, only when necessary, distribute income in the form of a distribution in Units or reinvested into Units of the ETF at the end of a taxation year. Such reinvested Units will then be consolidated so that the number of Units held by an investor after such a distribution will be equal to the number of Units they held the moment before the distribution. In the case of a non-resident Unitholder if tax has to be withheld in respect of the distribution, the Unitholder’s dealer will invoice or debit the Unitholder’s account directly.

Prior to the end of each taxation year, the ETF will ensure that the net income and net realized capital gains of the ETF have been paid or made payable to Unitholders of the ETF to such an extent that the ETF will not be liable for ordinary income tax thereon. To the extent that the ETF has not paid or made payable the full amount of its net income and net capital gains in cash in any taxation year, the difference between such amount and the amount actually paid or made payable by the ETF in cash will be paid or made payable as a “reinvested distribution” or distributed in Units. Reinvested distributions will be reinvested automatically in additional Units of the ETF in the applicable currency at a price, or Units will be distributed at a price, equal to the net asset value per Unit of the ETF and the Units of the ETF will be immediately consolidated such that the number of outstanding Units of the ETF following the distribution will equal the number of Units of the ETF outstanding prior to the distribution. In the case of a non-resident Unitholder if tax has to be withheld in respect of the distribution, the Unitholder’s dealer will invoice or debit the Unitholder’s account directly.
