^The S&P® BMI North American Natural Resources Index (the “Index”) comprises publicly traded large- and mid-capitalization U.S. and Canadian companies in the natural resources and commodities businesses that meet certain investability requirements and are classified within the sub-industries of one of three natural resources categories: energy, materials or agriculture. The Index is a sub-set of the S&P Global LargeMidCap Commodity and Resources Index (the “Parent Index”), which serves as the initial universe of eligible securities for the Index. The Parent Index consists of U.S. and foreign publicly traded large- and mid-cap companies in the natural resources and commodities businesses that are classified within the sub-industries of the energy, materials or agriculture categories, have a minimum float adjusted market capitalization of $1 billion and have a minimum three-month average daily trading value of $5 million. The Index consists of companies comprising the Parent Index that are domiciled in and publicly traded principally in the U.S. or Canada. Each natural resources category includes companies classified within specific Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sub-industries according to the company’s principal business activity. The energy category consists of companies classified in the following sub-industries: coal & consumable fuels; integrated oil & gas; and oil & gas exploration & production. The materials category consists of companies classified in the following sub-industries: aluminum; diversified metals & mining; gold; precious metals & minerals; and silver. The agriculture category consists of companies classified in following sub-industries: agricultural products; fertilizers & agricultural chemicals; and forest products. At each quarterly Index rebalancing, the combined weight of securities of companies in the energy, materials and agriculture categories are set at 45%, 35% and 20%, respectively. The Index uses a “modified market capitalization” weighting scheme, which means that modifications are made to the market capitalization weights to reduce single-stock concentration and to enable the Fund to qualify as a “regulated investment company” under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). Index constituents are weighted within each natural resources category proportionate to their float-adjusted market capitalization and are capped so that no stock exceeds 10% of the Index. Market capitalization and liquidity criteria are subject to change on an annual basis according to market conditions. The Index is rebalanced quarterly. The Index is “float-adjusted,” meaning that only those shares publicly available to investors are included in the Index calculation. As of September 30, 2015, a significant portion of the Index comprised companies in the energy and materials sectors, although this may change from time to time. As of September 30, 2015, the Index comprised 72 securities.
