These revised annual distributions are considered notional distributions and are automatically reinvested in units of the Funds at the time of the distribution and immediately consolidated so that the number of units held by each investor, the outstanding units of the Funds and the net asset value of the units of the Funds do not change as a result of the distributions. Unitholders of record on December 31, 2016 will receive the revised 2016 annual reinvested distributions.

These distributions, which are in addition to the cash distributions paid out during the year, are made to ensure the Funds are not liable for ordinary income tax. The tax characteristics of these year-end distributions will be reported in the normal course to unitholders in early 2017.
