Incorporation: The Company is a mutual fund corporation established under the laws of the Province of Ontario on May 15, 2020.
Manager: Purpose Investments Inc.
Fiscal year end: December 31
Nature of business: The Company will invest on an approximately equally-weighted basis in a portfolio (the "Portfolio") of equity securities of the following publicly traded Canadian banks: Bank of Montreal; Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce; National Bank of Canada; Royal Bank of Canada; The Bank of Nova Scotia; and The Toronto-Dominion Bank.

Transfer agent and registrar: TSX Trust Company at its principal offices in Toronto.
Distributions: Class A Shares: The Company will pay monthly non-cumulative distributions to the holders of Class A Shares. The monthly cash distribution is targeted to be $0.067 per Class A Share until November 30, 2023, subject to extension for successive terms of up to 3 years, representing a yield on the issue price of a Class A Share of 8.0% per annum. Such distributions will be paid on before the 15th day of the month following the month in respect of which the distribution is declared payable. No distributions will be paid on the Class A Shares (i) if the distributions payable on the Preferred Shares are in arrears, or (ii) in respect of a cash distribution by the Company, the NAV per Unit would be less than $15.00. The first distribution will be pro-rated to reflect the period from the Closing Date to September 30, 2020. Preferred Shares: Holders of record of Preferred Shares on the last Business Day of each of month will be entitled to receive fixed, cumulative preferential monthly cash distributions equal to $0.05 per Preferred Share until November 30, 2023, subject to extension for successive terms of up to 3 years. On an annualized basis, this would represent an amount of $0.60 per annum or a yield on the Preferred Share issue price of approximately 6.0%. The first distribution will be pro-rated to reflect the period from the Closing Date to September 30, 2020.
