The proposed mergers will be voted on at special meetings of securityholders to be held on or about June 9, 2017 in Toronto.  Full details about the proposed mergers will be set out in the Management Information Circular that will be made available to affected securityholders in the ordinary course.  If approved, it is anticipated that each proposed merger will be implemented on or before June 30, 2017. All costs and expenses associated with the mergers will be borne by the Manager. 

The Mergers
For each approved merger, the Terminating Fund will transfer substantially all of its assets to the corresponding Continuing Fund in return for securities of the Continuing Fund having an aggregate net asset value equal to the value of the assets transferred to the Continuing Fund.  Immediately thereafter, the Terminating Fund will cause all of its securities to be redeemed in exchange for securities of the Continuing Fund.  This will result in each securityholder of the Terminating Fund receiving securities of the applicable series of the Continuing Fund having equal value to the securities of the Terminating Fund that were held by such securityholder prior to the merger.  Each Terminating Fund will then be wound up as soon as possible following the mergers.

Suspension of New Purchases
Purchases of securities of a Terminating Fund will be suspended approximately five business days before the applicable merger implementation date.  In most cases, pre-authorized contribution plans and automatic withdrawal plans which have been established with respect to a Terminating Fund will be re-established with respect to the corresponding Continuing Fund.  More particulars regarding these matters will be set out in the Management Information Circular.

Rationale for the Mergers
It is expected that the mergers will result in a more streamlined Dynamic Funds product line-up making it easier for advisors and investors to understand.
