The Fund has been designed to replicate the performance of the CIBC U.S. Buyback Index (the "Index"), net of expenses. FBU invests primarily in equity securities of issuers included in the Solactive US Large Cap Index. The Index is comprised of an equally weighted portfolio of equity securities of U.S. companies with active share buyback programs that have significantly and consistently reduced issued and outstanding share count. The Index was developed by CIBC World Markets based on empirical evidence that shows that highly profitable companies with excellent core business models often have cash flows that exceed the required re-investment needed to support intrinsic growth, which cash flows are frequently used to implement share buyback programs. The Index uses a proprietary rules-based methodology to select its constituent securities. To qualify for inclusion in the Index an equity security must be a constituent of the Solactive U.S. Large Cap Index. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly to equal weight. It is intended that, except as described in the prospectus, at all times at least 90% of the foreign currency denominated assets held by the Fund attributable to the Units will be hedged back to the Canadian dollar.

(1) Future distribution dates may be amended at any time. (2) Reinvested distributions are not paid in cash but instead remain invested in the Fund. To recognize that these distributions have been allocated to investors for tax purposes the amounts of these distributions should be added to the adjusted cost base of the units held. (3) The characterization of distributions for tax purposes (such as dividends/other income/capital gains etc.) will not be known for certain until after the Fund's tax year end. Therefore investors will be informed of the characterization of the amounts distributed for tax purposes only for the entire year and not with each distribution. For tax purposes these amounts will be reported by brokers on official tax statements.
National Instrument 81-106 Investment Fund Continuous Disclosure requires disclosure of the proxy voting record on an annual basis for the period ending on June 30 of each year. The proxy voting record must be posted on the website no later than August 31 of each year.
Canadian securities law provides that the manager of an investment funds (in this case, CI Investments Inc. ("CI")), acting on behalf of the investment fund, has the right and obligation to vote proxies relating to the investment fund's portfolio securities. As a practical matter, CI delegates this function to the applicable portfolio manager or sub-adviser, as part of the portfolio manager's or sub-adviser's general management of the investment fund assets, subject to oversight by CI. CI generally requires that applicable portfolio managers or sub-advisers vote all proxies in the best interest of CI's funds and their securityholders, as determined solely by the portfolio manager or sub-adviser, and subject to CI's proxy voting policy, the guidelines applicable to the individual portfolio manager or sub-adviser, and applicable legislation. Portfolio managers and sub-advisers are generally expected to vote on any matter for which the investment fund receives proxy materials for a meeting of securityholders of an issuer.
