In accordance with the investment policy of the ETFs, the distribution will be re-invested on behalf of
investors via the purchase by the ETF of additional Constituent Securities, or Index Constituents, (as
defined in the relevant Portfolio Supplement) in the appropriate weightings, thereby increasing the net asset
value of the ETF and, proportionately increasing the value of each ETF security.

The distribution should:
- be added to the base cost of each ETF security for capital gains tax purposes; or
- where the ETF securities are held as trading stock be regarded as part of the cost of acquiring an ETF
security.

Reinvestments into the portfolio still constitute a notional distribution even though it will not be paid in cash.
Consequently, it forms part of investors' gross income as it is subject to tax.

Withholding Tax on Interest (WTI) came into effect on 1 March 2015.

Interest accruing from a South African source to a non-resident, excluding a controlled foreign company,
will be subject to withholding tax at a rate of 15% on payment, except interest,
- arising on any Government debt instrument
- arising on any listed debt instrument
- arising on any debt owed by a bank or the South African Reserve Bank
- arising from a bill of exchange or letter of credit where goods are imported into South Africa and where an
authorised dealer has certified such on the instrument
- payable by a headquarter company
- accruing to a non-resident natural person who was physically present in South Africa for a period
exceeding 183 days in aggregate, during that year, or carried on a business through a permanent
establishment in South Africa

Investors are advised that to the extent that the distribution amount comprise of any interest, it will
not be subject to WTI by virtue of the fact that it is Government debt, listed debt instruments and/or
bank debt.
