First Asset Canadian Buyback Index ETF

Fund Overview

First Asset Canadian Buyback Index ETF (the "Fund") provides investors with exposure to a portfolio of equity securities of quality companies with active share buyback programs that have significantly and consistently reduced their issued and outstanding share count. The Fund has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the CIBC Canadian Buyback Index (the "Index"), which uses a proprietary rules-based methodology to select constituent securities from those trading on the TSX that meet minimum market cap and average daily volume thresholds. Securities will be equally weighted and rebalanced quarterly.

(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.
