    The Fund is designed to provide unitholders with quarterly distributions
as well as the potential for capital appreciation. The Portfolio is primarily
focused on the securities of issuers that operate in or have exposure to the
uranium sector. The Fund also has the ability to invest in the securities of
other energy related issuers that operate in or have exposure to the energy
sector. The Portfolio is focused on securities which, in the view of the
advisor, Middlefield Capital Corporation, are of high quality issuers that
exhibit strong fundamentals and, in the case of issuers of Uranium Related
Securities, offer the potential to benefit from the favourable supply-demand
fundamentals in the uranium sector.
