The Index s reconsttuted and rebalanced quarterly and postons are equally weghted. The followng ndex constructon rules are ntended to represent the optons for nvestment n portfolo of hgh qualty dvdend payng equtes. Pror to October 2014, Index named Mornngstar Canada Dvdend Target 0 Index. Incepton Dates and Base Market Values The base date of the Index s December 1, 2001 when the base ndex value was set to 1,000. Lve calculaton of the ndex commenced January 19 th Calculaton and Dssemnaton of Index Values Prce return ndex values are dssemnated electroncally at 15-second ntervals durng regular tradng hours, and dssemnated over the Börse Stuttgart tape. Daly and monthly prce and total return ndex values are dstrbuted va varous data dstrbuton channels and are avalable on Tradng Holdays The Mornngstar Canada Target Dvdend Index s not calculated when the Toronto Stock Exchange s closed. Index Value Currences The closng values of the Index are calculated n Canadan Dollars, and U.S. Dollars usng an average of Reuters bd and ask prce. Scheduled Reconsttuton Dates The Index s reconsttuted.e., the Index membershp s reset four tmes annually. Adjustments are made at the close of trade on the thrd Frday of March, June, September, and December. The changes become effectve on the next busness day. Scheduled Rebalancng Dates n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted. For Professonal Use Only.

4 The weghtng of each Securty are adjusted four tmes annually. Adjustments are made on the Monday followng the thrd Frday of March, June, September, and December. If the Monday s not a busness day, then rebalance occurs on the next busness day. There wll be two varatons of the Index. One varaton wll have same-day reconsttuton and the other varaton wll have a 5-day reconsttuton. For the second varaton, reconsttuton and rebalancng adjustments may are made over fve exchange tradng days followng the thrd Frday of March, June, September, and December. In ths case, 20% of each reconsttuton wll be performed each day. The reconsttuton starts wth Frday s close data.

5 Assgnng Stocks to the Mornngstar Canada Target Dvdend Index Overvew At each reconsttuton date, the nvestable unverse and ndex elgblty are defned based on the crtera descrbed n ths secton. The nvestable unverse and ndex elgblty crtera are appled n the sequence n whch they appear below. Each crteron s appled only to the survvors of the crtera appled prevously. Data Dates To perform each reconsttuton data from the last busness day of the month pror to effectve date of the reconsttuted portfolo s utlzed. For example, the June reconsttuton, effectve at close of trade on the thrd Frday of June, s based on data as of last busness day of May. Investable Unverse To qualfy for ncluson n the nvestable unverse, a Securty must meet the followng crtera: 1) Prncpal Exchange for the securty must be lsted on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) 2) It must be one of the 100 stocks wth the hghest 12-month average tradng volume and Expected Dvdend Yeld greater than 1% ) Only Securtes of frms that are domcled n Canada and who have Common Shares or Unts of Income Trusts qualfy for ncluson n the Index Index Elgblty To be ncluded n the Index, a Securty must have an average monthly volume (12 month) greater than $200 mllon or the average daly volume ( month of such Securty must be greater than $10 mllon. Index Selecton At each reconsttuton, Securtes n the nvestable unverse are assgned a Weghted Average Fundamental Factor Rank (the WAFFR ) based on ther weghted average rank of the followng fve fundamental factors (see Appendx A for fundamental factor defntons): Fundamental Factor Expected Dvdend Yeld.% Cash Flow to Debt 20% 5 Year Normal EPS Growth 1.% Strategy Weght n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted.

6 Return on Equty 20% -Month EPS Estmate Revson 1.% The WAFFR for each Securty s determned on each rebalance date by Mornngstar as follows. For each fundamental factor relatve rankngs for all stocks are calculated where Securtes wth the best possble value wll be gven a score of 100 whle the Securtes that have the worst possble value wll be gven a score of 0. Ths score out of 100 s multpled by the assgned strategy weght and repeated for each varable that has been assgned a weght. A total score s then tabulated for all Securtes. The Securtes wth the hghest score wll be ranked 1 whle the stock wth the lowest total score receves the worst rank. Once the Securtes are scored by ther respected fundamental factors Securtes meetng the Index elgblty are selected to the Index n the followng manner: Rank order of Securty by ther WAFFR Current consttuents meetng all the followng crtera are retaned n the Index: o Ranks n the top 75 by ther WAFFR o Has an Expected Dvdend Yeld greater than 1.25% Addtonal securtes are added to the Index n order of WAFFR untl the Index conssts of 0 consttuents provded that they have meet all of the followng condtons: o Have an Expected Dvdend Yeld of 2% o Rank amongst the top 75 by WAFFR o Do not exceed a cap of 8 Securtes per GICS sector n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted.

7 Index Calculatons Basc Formula The value (prce) and total return of the Index s calculated usng Laspeyres formula. n (p (t)*s (t)) =1 Index(t)= *BaseIndexValue=(M(t)/B(t))*BaseIndexValue n C(t) (p (0)*s (0) j=1 j j The above formulas can be smplfed as: M(t) Index(t) D(t) Where: D(t) = dvsor at tme (t)=b(t)/base Index Value n = number of securtes n the Index p (0) = closng prce of securtes at the base date s (0) = constructed securtes of company at the base p (t) = prce of securtes at tme (t) s (t) = constructed securtes of company at tme (t) C(t) = adjustment factor for the base date market captalzaton t = tme the Index s calculated M(t) = market captalzaton of the Index at tme (t) B(t) = adjusted base date market captalzaton of the Index at tme (t) It s mportant to note that the shares (s (t)) for the Index consttuents are artfcal constructs used for calculaton purposes. n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted.

8 Index Calculatons (Cont.) Constructed Shares and Consttuent Weghtng The Index s an equal weght ndex. An Index consttuents weghtng n the Index s determned by: 1 IW(q)= n And the constructed shares (s (t)) for each consttuent n the Index calculaton formula are determned as follows: s(t)= n j=1 (s (t-1)p (t-1)*iw(q) j j p (t-1) Where: n = number of securtes n the Index (q) = quarter end tme the weghtngs of the consttuents n the Index are calculated (t) = tme the new Index shares are calculated p (t) = prce of securtes at tme (t) IW (q) = company weght n Index at quarterly rebalancng tme q s (t-1) = constructed shares of company at tme t mnus 1 * * At tme of ncepton of the Index, the constructed shares are determned by an arbtrary portfolo value, $10 Bllon. n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted.

9 Index Calculatons (Cont.) Dvsor Adjustments To avod dstortons caused by corporate actons that affect the share captal of Index consttuents, the dvsor of the Index s adjusted accordngly. The followng formulae wll be used for dvsor adjustments due to corporate acton. D(t+1)=D(t)* n =1 (p (t)*s (t))+ MV(t+1) n =1 (p (t)*s (t)) Note: If the current tradng prce of an ssue s unavalable, the prevous tradng sesson s closng prce s used. However, f the ssue s affected by any corporate acton that requres an adjustment, then the adjusted prce s used. Where: D(t) = dvsor at tme (t) D(t+1) = dvsor at tme (t+1) p (t) = stock prce of company at tme (t) s (t) = number of shares of company at tme (t) MV(t+1) = aggregate change n market value resultng from corporate actons Most but not all of the followng actons wll requre the calculaton of an adjustment factor whch wll be ncluded n the after-market-close ndex calculaton on the prevous busness day descrbed above n the secton ttled Basc Formula. Generally, because the Index s not market cap weghted changes to the share captal structure of Index consttuents wll not affect the component weghts. n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted. For Professonal Use Only. 9

10 Corporate Acton Adjustments Spn-Offs Issues spun off by ndex holdngs (parent company) are not added to the ndex but wll be consdered for ncluson at the next reconsttuton. The weght of the parent company s reduced by a factor of the spn-off converson rato, that s the weght s a product of the orgnal shares * new prce. A dvsor adjustment s made to account for the reducton n market value. Mergers and Acqustons If an ndex consttuent acqures or merges wth another company n the ndex, the orgnal enttes are replaced by the securty of the successor entty. The weght of the new entty s equal to the market value sum of the orgnal ndex consttuents. A dvsor adjustment s not necessary because the ndex market value remans unchanged. If an ndex consttuent acqures or merges wth company that s currently not a component of the ndex, then the orgnal entty s replaced by the securty of the successor entty; however, n ths case the weght of the new entty s equal to the market value of the orgnal ndex consttuent. A dvsor adjustment s not necessary because the ndex market value remans unchanged. If an ndex consttuent s the target of an acquston or merger by a company that s not an ndex component, the orgnal ndex consttuent s deleted from the ndex. A dvsor adjustment s made to reflect the decrease n market value. Stock Dvdends / Splts Stock splts and dvdends do not requre a dvsor adjustment because the market value of the entty remans unchanged. Share Repurchase / Offerng If an ndex consttuent ssues or repurchases shares, the new share captal structure s consdered at the next rebalancng. No dvsor adjustment s necessary. Delstng, Bankruptcy, and Fnancal Dstress If an ndex consttuent s delsted by ts prncpal exchange, enters bankruptcy proceedngs, or s under extreme fnancal dstress, the securty s removed from the Mornngstar Canada Target Dvdend Index. Exceptons are made on a case-by-case bass. For example, a securty mght not be removed mmedately when a bankruptcy flng s not a result of operatng or fnancal dffcultes. Upon deleton, a dvsor adjustment s made to reflect the decrease n market value. n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted. For Professonal Use Only. 10

11 Change of Prncpal Exchange A securty s removed from the ndex f ts prncpal exchange ceases to be the NYSE, NYSE Amex, or NASDAQ exchange. A dvsor adjustment s made to reflect the decrease n market value. Change of Domcle If a company ceases to meet the company domcle elgblty rule, the company s removed from the ndex. A dvsor adjustment s made to reflect the decrease n market value. Loss of Lqudty If a consttuent accumulates 10 consecutve nontradng days between reconsttuton dates, t s removed from the ndexes. Two busness days pror notce of ts removal s provded. A dvsor adjustment s made to reflect the decrease n market value. n whole or part, wthout the pror wrtten consent of Mornngstar, Inc., s prohbted.

12 Data Correctons and Precson Index-Related Data and Dvsor Correctons Incorrect prcng and corporate acton data for ndvdual ssues n the database wll be corrected upon detecton. Correctons are lmted to 2 hours after close. Computatonal and Reportng Precson All calculated and adjusted data are stored n real numbers.
