WisdomTree US SmallCap Dividend Index

The Index is governed by a published, rules-based methodology and is designed to measure the performance of US dividend paying small cap stocks. The Index is a fundamentally weighted index and consists of the companies that compose the bottom 25% of the market capitalisation of the WisdomTree Dividend Index after the 300 largest companies are removed.

Eligibility requirements for inclusion in the Index include: (i) payment of regular cash dividends on common shares in the annual cycle prior to the annual Index screening date; (ii) market capitalisation of at least $100million as of the Index screening date; (iii) average daily dollar volume of at least $100,000 for the three months preceding the Index screening date; and (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. Securities are weighted in the Index to reflect the proportionate share of the aggregate cash dividends each component company is projected to pay in the coming year, based on the most recently declared dividend per share. Companies projected to pay more dividends are more heavily weighted. At the time of the Index’s annual screening date, the maximum weight of any one sector in the Index is capped at 25%, 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 weight to rise above 25%. In response to market conditions, sector weights may fluctuate above the specified cap between annual Index screening dates. While the Index is primarily designed to include small cap companies, it may also include large-capitalisation and mid-capitalisation companies from time to time. 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. New securities are added to the Index only during the "annual reconstitution." The annual reconstitution takes place in December each year using the latest available closing prices on the last trading day in November. 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 December. 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 December 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 December and go into effect before the opening of trading on the Monday following the third Friday of December.

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 Index from being used or disseminated in an improper manner.
