Nature of Business: The ETF seeks to reflect, in Canadian dollars and net of expenses, the performance of the Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar.

Distributions and Automatic Reinvestment: The ETF is not expected to make regular taxable cash distributions. Cash distributions, if any, to Unitholders of the ETF of income earned on cash and Cash Equivalents or the ETF’s derivatives activity, net of fees and expenses, will be made at the discretion of the Manager. Such distributions, if any, to Unitholders of the ETF will be paid in Canadian dollars.

To the extent required, the ETF will also make payable, prior to the end of each taxation year, sufficient net income (including net capital gains) that has not previously been paid or made payable so that the ETF will not be liable for ordinary income tax in any given year and such distributions will be automatically reinvested in Units of the ETF or paid in Units of the ETF, in each case which will then 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 that distribution. In the case of a non-resident Unitholder, if tax has to be withheld in respect of a distribution, the Unitholder’s dealer will invoice or debit the Unitholder’s account directly.
