Unit Consolidation

After the TSX closed for trading today, January 4, 2013, the units of the ETF will be consolidated based on a Consolidation Ratio of 1:1.009601, i.e. for every 1.009601 pre-consolidation units outstanding, one (1) consolidated unit will be issued, such that the net asset value ("NAV") of the units of the ETF traded on the TSX under the ticker symbol DLR.U will now equal $10.00 USD after the consolidation.
