WisdomTree Europe Equity Income Index

The Index is governed by a published, rules-based methodology and is designed to measure the performance of European stocks with high dividend yields. The Index is a fundamentally weighted index and is comprised of the highest dividend yielding European common stocks selected from the WisdomTree Dividend Index of Europe, Far East Asia and Australasia (the “WisdomTree DEFA Index”). As of the annual Index screening date, companies from Europe within the WisdomTree DEFA Index are ranked by dividend yield. Securities ranking in the highest 30% by dividend yield are selected for inclusion within the Index. If a company currently in the Index is no longer ranked in the top 30% by dividend yield at the time of the annual Index screening date but remains ranked in the top 35% by dividend yield, the company will remain in the Index.

Eligibility requirements for the Index include: (i) payment of at least $5 million in cash dividends on common shares in the annual cycle prior to the annual Index screening date; (ii) market capitalisation of at least $200 million as of the Index screening date; (iii) average daily dollar volume of at least $200,000 for the three months preceding the Index screening date; (iv) a calculated volume factor (the average daily dollar volume for three months preceding the Index screening date divided by the weight of the security in the Index) that is greater than $200 million; (v) trading of at least 250,000 shares per month for each of the six months preceding the Index screening date; and (vi) incorporated and listed on a stock exchange in one of the following countries Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland or the United Kingdom (“Europe”). Securities are weighted in the Index based on dividends paid over the prior annual cycle. Companies that pay more total dollar amount of dividends are more heavily weighted. At the time of the Index’s annual screening date, the maximum weight of any security in the Index is capped at 5%. The maximum weight of any one sector and any one country in the Index, at the time of the Index’s annual screening date, is capped at 25% and 33.3%, respectively, subject to the following volume factor. In the event that a company has a calculated volume factor that is less than $400 million as of the annual Index screening date, (i) the company’s weight in the Index will be reduced such that its weight equals its weight prior to the adjustment multiplied by a fraction of its calculated volume factor divided by $400 million, and (ii) the reduction in the company’s Index weight may cause a sector’s and/or country’s weight to rise above the specified caps. In response to market conditions, security, sector and country weights may fluctuate above the specified cap between annual Index screening dates. The Index includes large-capitalisation, mid-capitalisation and small-capitalisation companies. The Index is "reconstituted" on an annual basis.

During the annual reconstitution, securities are screened to determine whether they comply with WisdomTree Investment, Inc.'s (“WisdomTree”) proprietary Index methodology and are eligible to be included in the Index on the basis of the requirements outlined above, except companies may remain in the Index if they are ranked in the top 35% by dividend yield. New securities are added to the Index only during the "annual reconstitution." The annual reconstitution takes place in June each year using the latest available closing prices on the last trading day in May. This date is the "Index measurement date". Based on this screening, securities that meet Index requirements are added to the Index and securities that do not meet such requirements are dropped from the Index. A "preliminary Index" is made publicly available based on this information by the Wednesday in the second week of June. The "Weighting Date" is the date when the final weights of each component security of the Index are established. The Weighting Date is the second Friday of June and the final weights are established after close of business on that day. The final Index constituents and their respective weightings are made publicly available after close of business on the second Friday of June and go into effect before the opening of trading on the Monday following the third Friday of June.

In order to minimise any potential for conflicts caused by the fact that WisdomTree and its affiliates act as Index Provider and Promoter of the Company, WisdomTree has retained an unaffiliated third party to calculate the Index (the “Calculation Agent”). The Calculation Agent, using the applicable rules-based methodology, will calculate, maintain and disseminate the Index on a daily basis. WisdomTree will monitor the results produced by the Calculation Agent to help ensure that the Index is being calculated in accordance with the applicable rules-based methodology. In addition, WisdomTree has established policies and procedures designed to prevent non-public information about pending changes to the Indices from being used or disseminated in an improper manner.
