If no election into the DRP is made, distributions will be automatically paid in cash. Investors will typically be paid the cash distribution approximately 10 business days after the record date, as stated in the relevant declaration. Computershare Investor Services, as Registrar for the fund, will send investors a payment advice with details of the payment.

The annual tax statement for the above fund will be sent to investors as soon as practically possible following the fund financial year end on 30 June. Please refer to the Tax Booklet for Australian Funds for more tax related information on iShares ETF distributions and for information to assist you in completing your Australian tax return.

Fund Payment Amount (Cents per Unit): The concept of “fund payment” is relevant for non-resident Australian investors (Foreign Investors) holding a widely held trust such as the iShares ETF. It refers to the distribution of Australian sourced income and capital gains (excluding dividends, interest and royalties) that for a Foreign Investor is subject to withholding tax. The withholding tax rate is 15% if the investor’s country of tax residence has an Exchange of Information Agreement with Australia (otherwise the rate of withholding tax is 30%).
This fund does not have any distributions.
Cash Distribution (Cents-Per-Unit): May not equal the sum of each distribution announcement during the year-end 30 June 2015.  This is due to rounding in the fund’s registry systems.
 
Sum of the Distribution Percentages:  May not equal 100% as the calculation is based on 6 decimal places whereas the data is presented to only 4 decimal places.
