Performance Disclosure

Performance quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Performance returns for periods of less than one year are not annualised and have been calculated based on changes in the net asset value of the Fund rather than the last quoted price. Total returns reflect combined capital growth and distribution performance assuming all distributions are reinvested; and are shown net of fees. Distributions are assumed to be reinvested under the Dividend Reinvestment Program (DRP). Fund returns do not reflect the brokerage fees or the bid/ask spread that investors pay to buy and sell ETF securities on the Australian Securities Exchange. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when units are sold. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted. The index returns are unmanaged and do not reflect the deduction of any fees or expenses. The index returns reflect all items of income, gain and loss and the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

The tables above show historical distributions from the funds. Historical distributions are no indication of future distributable income.

All SPDR ETFs, aside from the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust and the SPDR® S&P®/ASX 200 Listed Property Fund are managed on an accumulation basis, with income reinvested into investable securities. This means that subsequent application and redemption activity could distort the nature and size of distributions. The proportion of total return attributable to income versus capital growth may differ from the relevant index.

The distribution yield for any given period has been calculated as the total cash distribution paid (excluding franking and tax credits) divided by the Net Asset Value on ex-date.

The distribution components are as calculated and reported to the Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX") at the time of each distribution. The year end components reported to investors in their annual tax statements, once all year end information is finalised, may be different.

The ability of the Funds to pay distributions depends on, among other things, the dividends and distributions declared and paid by the companies whose securities are held by the Funds. There can be no assurance that such securities will pay dividends or other earnings. For further information on distributions, including tax implications, please refer to the relevant fund PDS. However, the information contained therein is not tax advice and investors should obtain their own professional tax and or financial advice.
