Unitholders are entitled to receive monthly distributions as declared by the Trust. The Trust does not have a fixed distribution but generally intends to make monthly distributions based on the dividends and other distributions received on the underlying portfolio and premiums realized by the Trust pursuant to its option writing strategy less the operating expenses. It is expected that the monthly distributions received by Unitholders will be characterized primarily as returns of capital and capital gains for tax purposes. Amounts distributed on the units that represent returns of capital are generally non-taxable to a Unitholder but reduce the Unitholder's adjusted cost base of the Units for tax purposes.

The Trust's investment objectives are to provide unitholders with investment exposure, on a tax-advantaged basis, to an equally-weighted portfolio comprised of the 20 highest yielding equity securities included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

The units of the Trust are listed for trading on The Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TUT.UN.
