Shareholders who wish to enroll for the first time in the Premium
Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan must submit their
enrollment forms to Valiant Trust prior to the May 18, 2011 ex-dividend
date if they wish to participate in the Plan for the April dividend.
Brokerage entitlement departments are encouraged to double check prior
to the May 18, 2011 ex-dividend date that they have properly elected

Premium Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan
In addition to the option of receiving a monthly cash dividend of $0.085
per share, the Premium Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment
Plan provide Canadian shareholders with the following options:
The Premium Dividend™ - this provides eligible shareholders with a 2%
cash premium on top of their regular cash dividend. Participants in
this option will receive $0.0867 per share on June 15, 2011.
Dividend Reinvestment - this allows shareholders to repurchase shares
with their dividend at a 5% discount to the volume weighted average
price as defined by the Plan.
Those shareholders who do not elect to participate in the Premium
Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan will still receive
their regular monthly dividend of $0.085 per share.
Many brokerages have already enrolled their clients in the Premium
Dividend™. Shareholders who own their shares through a brokerage and
who wish to participate in either component of the Plan should call
their broker to check if they are already enrolled and, if not,
instruct their brokers to enroll their shares in one of the two
options. Be aware that some brokerages may charge fees for enrolment,
so please ask about related fees when speaking with your broker.

shareholders) who wish to enroll can find out more from Valiant Trust
