The Manager uses 4air value pricing when the 4air value o4 a security held in a 4und is unavailable, unreliable or not considered to refect the current 4air value, and may determine another value which it considers to be 4air and reasonable using the services o4 third-party valuation service providers, or using a valuation technique that, to the extent possible, makes maximum use o4 inputs and assumptions based on observable market data including volatility, comparable companies and other applicable rates and prices. Procedures are in place to 4air value securities traded in countries outside North America and Latin America daily, to avoid stale prices and to take into account, among other things, any signi cant events occurring a4ter the close o4 a 4oreign market.<br><br> For bonds, debentures, asset-backed securities and other debt securities, the 4air value represents the bid price provided by independent security pricing services. Short-term investments are included in the Statement o4 Investment Port4olio at their 4air value. Unlisted warrants are valued based on a pricing model which considers 4actors such as the market value o4 the underlying security, strike price and terms o4 the warrant.<br><br> Mutual 4und units held as investments are valued at their respective net asset values on each valuation date, as these values are the most readily and regularly available. The Fund 9s nancial instruments are classi ed into three levels based on the inputs used to value the nancial instruments. Level 1 securities are based on quoted prices in active markets 4or identical securities.<br><br> Level 2 securities are based on signi cant observable market inputs, such as quoted prices 4rom similar securities and quoted prices in inactive markets.

This proposal could result in the Fund de4erring its adoption o4 IFRS 4rom January 1, 2011 to January 1, 2012. The AcSB is expected to nalize their proposal in September 2010.<br><br> In order to meet the requirement to transition to IFRS, the Manager established a committee 4or the development and implementation o4 a transition plan and to provide oversight o4 the transition to IFRS. The transition plan is comprised o4 three phases: a diagnostic assessment to identi4y potential IFRS di44erences relative to current policies; implementation and education, which includes con rming actual IFRS di44erences relative to current policies; and completion o4 all integration requirements 4or any actual di44erences identi ed. The Fund 9s transition to IFRS remains on track: its diagnostic assessment to identi4y potential IFRS di44erences is completed, and the Committee is currently working through the second phase o4 the transition plan.<br><br> The diagnostic assessment o4 the Fund revealed the 4ollowing: The criteria contained within the IFRS Financial Instruments: Presentation standard (IAS 32) may require unitholders 9 equity to be classi ed as a liability within the Fund 9s statement o4 net assets, unless certain conditions are met. The Manager is currently assessing the Fund 9s unitholder structure to con rm classi cation. The requirements contained within the IFRS Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements standard (IAS 27) may impact the accounting o4 certain investments held by the Fund.<br><br> To the extent any o4 the Fund 9s investments in other 4unds are deemed to be controlled by the Fund, as determined under the criteria contained within IAS 27, the Fund will need to consolidate the nancial statements o4 those investments within the Fund 9s nancial statements. However, the IASB is planning to replace IAS 27 with a new standard. This new standard may be in e44ect prior to Fund 9s transition date, such that the IFRS may di44er at transition date 4rom its current 4orm.<br><br> The Manager is currently monitoring the IASB 9s project to replace IAS 27, and will amend its implementation plans accordingly. Presentation changes to unitholders 9 equity and presenting certain investments held by the Fund on a consolidated basis will not have an impact on the Fund 9s results o4 operations or nancial position. The diagnostic assessment did not reveal any other potential material di44erences between the Fund 9s current accounting policies and the requirements under IFRS.<br><br> The Manager does not 4oresee any impact or change to the Fund 9s business arrangements or any accounting policy or implementation decisions that the Fund will need to make as a result o4 the changeover to IFRS. The Manager has not identi ed any changes that will impact NAV per share as a result o4 the changeover to IFRS.
