All units of the Funds held by investors after the termination date will be subject to mandatory redemption.

BMO will convert the ETFs into cash, to the extent practicable. Upon the Termination Date, each Fund’s property remaining after paying or providing for the relevant Fund’s liabilities and obligations will be distributed pro rata among the Funds’ respective unitholders based on the net asset value per unit of the Fund that is held by such unitholders.

BMO AM will request the TSX to de-list units of the Funds from the Toronto Stock Exchange on or about August 4, 2015. Until such date, units of the Funds will continue to be listed on the TSX.
