Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in equity securities that are included in the UBS Financial Services’ (“UBS”) “Opportunistic Equity Income” stock list. The Trust seeks to provide dividend income and capital appreciation by investing in a portfolio of common stocks of foreign and/or domestic companies identified by UBS that meet the criteria for its “Opportunistic Equity Income” stock list. However, there is no assurance that the selected securities will continue to pay dividends or that the Trust will achieve its investment objective.
As a result of this strategy, the Trust invests significantly in the information technology sector.
The selection process for the final portfolio follows a disciplined process, which includes both quantitative screening and qualitative analysis. The UBS “Opportunistic Equity Income” criteria begins with a universe of all dividend-paying equity securities traded in the United States as of the date of the security selection. The foreign securities that may be held by the Trust may include U.S.-listed foreign securities, American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) or Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”). In addition, the Trust may invest in real estate investment Trusts (“REITs”). The universe of securities is reduced by applying the following quantitative criteria:
• Minimum Market Capitalization. Each security must have a market capitalization greater than $2 billion;
• Above Average Dividend Yields. Each security must have current yields greater than the S&P 500 market yield;
• Available Free Cash Flow. Each security must have free cash flow. The free cash flow yield criteria is waived for banks, where it is not a relevant measure, and for companies in the utilities sector, where it is a skewed measure of the ability to pay the dividend as a result of investment capital spending needs and debt levels within the industry; and
• UBS Research Rating. Each security must have a minimum rating of Neutral by UBS Research or Bellwether by UBS Chief Investment Office Wealth Management Research, each a platform within UBS. If there is a split rating in which the stock is rated Sell/Underperform by one of these platforms, the other platform rating must be Buy/Outperform in order to be considered for inclusion.
Companies are identified for inclusion in the UBS “Opportunistic Equity Income” stock list through a qualitative analysis based on, but not limited to, the following criteria:
• Sustainable Dividend Payout Ratio. The selection process favors companies that have demonstrated the ability to maintain sustainable dividend payout ratios.
• Debt/Capital Ratio. The selection process favors companies that have demonstrated reasonable debt to capital ratios.
• Dividend Stability. The selection process favors companies that have demonstrated a ten-year history of maintaining stable dividends.
• Valuation. The selection process favors companies demonstrating attractive valuations.
• Fundamentals. The selection process favors companies with positive fundamental reviews including, but not limited to, revenue opportunities, earnings growth and stock specific catalysts.
The securities in the final portfolio for the Trust will not be concentrated in any Global Industry Classification Standard sector.

Risks and Other Considerations
As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. No assurance can be given that the Trust’s investment objective will be achieved. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these:
• Securities prices can be volatile. The value of your investment may fall over time. Market value fluctuates in response to various factors. These can include stock market movements, purchases or sales of securities by the Trust, government policies, litigation, and changes in interest rates, inflation, the financial condition of the securities’ issuer or even perceptions of the issuer. Units of the Trust are not deposits of any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
• The Trust invests significantly in the information technology sector. As a result, the factors that impact the information technology sector will likely have a greater effect on this Trust than on a more broadly diversified Trust. Companies involved in this sector must contend with rapid changes in technology, intense competition, government regulation and the rapid obsolescence of products and services. Furthermore, sector predictions may not materialize and the companies selected for the Trust may not represent the entire sector and may not participate in the overall sector growth.
• The Trust invests in ADRs and U.S.- listed foreign securities. The Trust’s investment in ADRs and U.S.-listed foreign securities presents additional risk. ADRs are issued by a bank or Trust company to evidence ownership of underlying securities issued by foreign corporations. Securities of foreign issuers present risks beyond those of domestic securities. More specifically, foreign risk is the risk that foreign securities will be more volatile than U.S. securities due to such factors as adverse economic, currency, political, social or regulatory developments in a country, including government seizure of assets, excessive taxation, limitations on the use or transfer of assets, the lack of liquidity or regulatory controls with respect to certain industries or differing legal and/or accounting standards.
• The Trust includes securities issued by mid-capitalization companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of large-capitalization companies. Mid-capitalization companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be more vulnerable to adverse general market or economic developments.
• Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust. There is no guarantee that share prices of the securities in the Trust will not decline and that the issuers of the securities will declare dividends in the future and, if declared, whether they will remain at current levels or increase over time.
• Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments.
• The Sponsor does not actively manage the portfolio. The Trust will generally hold, and may, when creating additional units, continue to buy, the same securities even though a security’s outlook, market value or yield may have changed.
