Fiscal Year End: December 31
Nature of Business: The ETF seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Hang Seng High Dividend Yield Index (the “Underlying Index”), net of expenses, by investing primarily in the Underlying ETF. The Underlying Index is designed to measure the performance of Hong Kong listed equity securities characterized by high dividend yield.
Transfer Agent & Registrar: CST Trust Company at its principal office in Toronto.
Distributions and Automatic Reinvestment: It is anticipated that the ETF will make distributions to its Unitholders on a quarterly basis. Such distributions will be paid in cash, unless a Unitholder is participating in the Reinvestment Plan.

On or prior to the last day of each taxation year, the ETF will be required to pay or make payable the net income and net realized capital gains of the ETF 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 year, the difference between such amount and the amount actually paid or made payable by the ETF in cash may 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 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 held by each Unitholder on such day following the distribution will equal the number of Units of the ETF outstanding and held by the Unitholder prior to the distribution.
