These preliminary, estimated year-end distributions should be treated as forward-looking information that was based on certain assumptions and information currently available to Acuity and its advisers. Actual 2009 year-end distributions will be subject to general market conditions, trading patterns and other factors that may transpire prior to the end of this year. Therefore, actual 2009 year-end distributions may be materially different from the estimated amounts set forth above. There is no absolute guarantee that these funds will pay a distribution at year-end.

It is expected that other Acuity Mutual Funds and other Acuity Pooled Funds (those not listed above) will not pay a year-end (2009) distribution, except for those funds that have a regular fixed monthly or quarterly distribution - however, this could change if there are significant changes in market and other conditions which relate to the criteria used by Acuity in determining whether a distribution should be made by a particular fund.

Acuity is the manager of the Acuity Mutual Funds and Acuity Pooled Funds listed above. Acuity Investment Management Inc., an affiliate of Acuity, provides investment advisory and portfolio management services to these funds. Acuity, and Acuity Investment Management Inc., manage approximately $7.3 billion in assets on behalf of Pension Funds, Foundations and High-Net-Worth individuals, including twenty one Acuity Pooled Funds, twenty five Acuity Mutual Funds, three Acuity Social Values Funds, one Clean Environment Mutual Fund, three Acuity (TSX listed) Closed End Funds and one Acuity Hedge Fund.
