The Fund confirms that the amount of the Additional Distribution of capital gains for 2005 was $1.73118 per unit. The Additional Distribution was not paid in cash; rather it was paid in units which were immediately consolidated such that the units outstanding did not change. Unitholders are required to include this capital gain in 2005 income, as per the T3 tax slip. Unitholders are also reminded that this same amount should be added to the adjusted cost base of their holdings of the Fund.
