Each of the ETFs and Funds are required to distribute any net income and capital gains that they have earned in the year. All of the cash distributions indicated in the table will be paid in cash unless the Unitholder has enrolled in the applicable dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP") of the respective ETF.
