* The Historical Annual Dividend Distribution (HADD) per unit is as of the day prior to trust deposit and subject to change. The HADD per unit is the weighted average of the trailing twelve-month distributions paid by the securities included in the portfolio. The HADD rate is based on the HADD divided by the current offer price and recalculated daily. Both the HADD per unit and the rate shown are reduced to account for the effects of fees and expenses, which will be incurred when investing in the Trust. The HADD per unit and rate will vary due to certain factors that may include, but are not limited to, a change in the dividends paid by issuers, a change in Trust expenses or the sale or maturity of securities in the portfolio. There is no guarantee the issuers of the securities included in the Trust will declare dividends or distributions in the future. The HADD of the securities included in the Trust is for illustrative purposes only and is not indicative of the Trust’s distribution. Due to the negative economic impact across many industries caused by the recent COVID-19 outbreak, certain issuers of the securities included in the trust may elect to reduce the amount of, or cancel entirely, dividends and/or distributions paid in the future. As a result, the HADD figure will likely be higher, and in some cases significantly higher, than the actual distribution rate achieved by the trust.

Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust consists of a diversified portfolio of dividend-paying equity securities. The Sponsor believes that dividends are often a good indicator of a corporation’s current financial condition and, furthermore, may signal management’s belief in a profitable future for the corporation. Investors seeking to return to the often volatile equity markets may consider the income available from a group of dividend-paying securities as a logical first step toward reentry into such markets. However, there can be no assurance that any security held by the Trust will meet the Trust’s objective.
The Sponsor selects domestically-traded companies that it believes are core holdings of a diversified dividend-paying portfolio. To select the portfolio the Sponsor follows a disciplined process which includes both quantitative screening and qualitative analysis. The Sponsor begins with the companies currently in the Russell 3000® Index and identifies a universe of securities with higher indicated dividend yields than their average counterpart within the same Global Industry Classification Standards (“GICS”) sector. From this universe of approximately 400 companies, the Sponsor identifies companies for inclusion in the portfolio through a qualitative analysis, which may be primarily based on, but not limited to, the following factors:
For the final step the Sponsor weights the selected securities such that the portfolio has no more than approximately 20% of its net assets (as of the date of deposit) in any one given GICS sector. Please note that due to the fluctuating nature of security prices, the weighting of a sector in the Trust portfolio may change after the date of deposit.
The Sponsor believes that one factor that may provide increased returns for shareholders over long periods of time is dividend reinvestment. Reinvesting dividends has historically had a significant compounding effect on investor returns. However, there is no guarantee that dividend reinvestment will have such a compounding effect on investor returns in the future.
