The top ranked eligible non-constituents by float-adjusted market capitalization are added to the selection universe until it reaches 60 companies. Constituent Selection. Constituent selection is as follows: 1. Companies in the selection universe are ranked by each of the following: Combined float-adjusted market capitalization Revenue Net profit 2. For each company, a final rank is calculated by weighting the float-adjusted market capitalization rank at 60%, the revenue rank at 20%, and the net profit rank at 20%. 3. The top 30 companies by final rank are selected as index constituents. While each individual index is fixed at 30 companies, it is possible for an index to contain more than 30 stocks at any S&P Dow Jones Indices: Dow Jones Titans Indices Methodology 18

20 point in time. Such cases arise when an index contains more than one share class for a particular company. The index uses both share classes in its index calculation, in order to maintain the full market capitalization weight of the company in the index. 4. During subsequent reviews, selections are subject to buffers that aim to limit index turnover by favoring current constituents: Any non-constituent company ranked among the top 20 by final rank replaces the lowestranked index constituent. Any constituent company not among the top 40 by final rank is replaced by the highestranked non-constituent. Weighting. The index is weighted by modified float-adjusted market capitalization. Each constituent company s combined weight is capped at 10% of the index s total float-adjusted market capitalization. Weights are reviewed quarterly.

22 For the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Composite 100 Index, the index is created by selecting the 10 top-ranked companies from each of the 10 Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Indices for a total constituent count of 100. Weighting. The indices are modified capitalization weighted, adjusting for free float and to meet diversification requirements as follows: The weight of any individual company is restricted to 10% in the index. The aggregate weight of individual companies with weights of 4.5% or more is restricted to 45% in the index. The index constituent weightings are updated on a quarterly basis, in March, June, September and December. Constituent weights will be aggregated together in cases where a constituent owns 50% or more of another constituent s outstanding shares when the quarterly weight factors detailed above are calculated. Constituents exceeding the defined threshold will be classified as related companies and will be required to meet the weight diversification rules outlined above on a quarterly basis. S&P Dow Jones Indices: Dow Jones Titans Indices Methodology 21

The top 20 companies by final rank from each industry are selected as index constituents. 4. Ten additional companies are selected from the remaining non-constituent companies starting with the highest ranking remaining company based on final rank. 5. During subsequent reviews, selections are subject to buffers that aim to limit index turnover by favoring current constituents: Any non-constituent company ranked among the top 40 by final rank replaces the lowestranked index constituent. Any constituent company not among the top 60 by final rank is replaced by the highestranked non-constituent. Weighting.

26 Index Maintenance Rebalancing Index Composition. Index composition is rebalanced annually in September, unless indicated otherwise in the table below. Changes are implemented at the open of trading on the Monday following the third Friday of the annual rebalancing month. The rebalancing reference date is the third Friday of the month prior to the rebalancing month. Index Dow Jones Brazil Titans 20 ADR Index Dow Jones Cyprus Titans 10 Index Dow Jones EGX Egypt Titans 20 Index Dow Jones France Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Germany Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Hong Kong Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Italy Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Kuwait Titans 50 Index Dow Jones Malaysia Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Netherlands Titans 30 Index Dow Jones SAFE Pakistan Titans 15 Index Dow Jones Saudi Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Singapore Titans 30 Index Dow Jones South Korea Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Spain Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Sweden Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Switzerland Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Taiwan Titans 30 Index Dow Jones Turkey Titans 20 Index Dow Jones U.K. Titans 50 Index Annual Rebalancing Month March March June March March March March March March March March March March March March March March March March March Quarterly Updates. The constituent shares outstanding and cap factors are reviewed and updated quarterly. Changes to a constituent s shares and cap factors as a result of the quarterly review are implemented after the close of trading on the third Friday in March, June, September and December, and are effective at the open of the next trading day. For capped indices, a constituent s weight in the index is calculated using closing prices on the Wednesday prior to the second Friday of the quarterly review month as the reference price. Index share amounts are calculated and assigned to each stock to arrive at the weights determined on the reference price date. Since index shares are assigned based on reference prices prior to the rebalancing, the actual weight of each stock at the rebalancing differs from these weights due to market movements. In addition, on a quarterly basis (outside of the annual index composition rebalancing), the selection universe is updated and re-ranked in order to check for possible early entry or removal of securities.
