(a) of Section 3.15 is amended to read in its entirety as follows:
In acquiring or disposing of Securities, including without limitation Additional Securities and New Securities, the Portfolio
Supervisor (or the Depositor or Trustee, if, as provided in Section 3.18, the Depositor or Trustee is acquiring or disposing of
Securities for the account of the Trust) shall direct transactions to such brokers or dealers as the Portfolio Supervisor selects
or, if the Portfolio Supervisor fails so to direct, to such brokers or dealers as the Depositor selects or, if neither the Portfolio
Supervisor nor the Depositor is directing the transaction for the Trust, to such brokers or dealers from whom the Trustee expects to
obtain the most favorable execution of orders. The Depositor or an affiliate of the Depositor or of the Trustee may act as broker.
If the Depositor acts as broker, it shall be entitled to compensation in accordance with applicable law and regulations. Any
affiliate of the Trustee acting as broker shall receive such compensation as may be agreed upon with the Depositor (or, if selected
by the Trustee, at market commission rates, concessions or markups), without reduction of the compensation payable to the Trustee
for its services as such. With the prior consent of the Trustee, such of the Portfolio Supervisor or Depositor which is directing
the transaction, is authorized to engage a broker qualified to act as a custodian for the Trust assets pursuant to Rule 17f-4 under
the 1940 Act, as amended, to maintain custody of, and otherwise to act as clearing broker with respect to transactions involving,
options and other instruments cleared through the Options Clearing Corporation. The Portfolio Supervisor or Depositor, as
applicable, is authorized to enter into account agreements on behalf of the Trust with such broker, which agreements may expressly
provide that liability thereunder is limited to the assets of the Trust. The Depositor shall take such action, or shall instruct the
Portfolio Supervisor to take such action, as the Depositor deems appropriate in the event the Depositor and the Trustee determine
that that custody of Trust Securities shall no longer be maintained by a clearing broker, or if the Depositor otherwise determines
to engage an alternative clearing broker."
anything to the contrary in the Standard Terms and Conditions of Trust, Section 3.18 shall be replaced with the following:
3.18. Authority of Portfolio Supervisor to Cause the Purchase or Sale or Depositor to Purchase or Sell Securities for the Account of
the Trust. Whenever in the Indenture it is provided that the Trustee or the Depositor shall purchase or sell Securities, the
Portfolio Supervisor is authorized to, and shall, cause the Securities to be purchased or sold, for the account of the Trust. Should
the Portfolio Supervisor fail to cause such purchase or sale, the Depositor shall effect the purchase or sale, and the Trustee shall
purchase or sell Securities only in the event that the Trustee would otherwise be directed to make the purchase or sale pursuant to
the provisions of the Indenture and both the Portfolio Supervisor and the Depositor have failed to make or cause such purchase or
sale. Neither the Trustee nor the Depositor shall have any responsibility or liability for any purchase or sale of Securities caused
by the Portfolio Supervisor and the Trustee shall have no responsibility or liability for any purchase or sale of Securities made by
the Depositor or for any failure of the Portfolio Supervisor or Depositor to make, or cause, any purchase or sale required by this
Section or otherwise by the Indenture."
following two paragraphs shall be added at the end of Section 8.02 of the Standard Terms and Conditions of Trust:
Trust contains Securities that are subject to written call options, the Depositor shall direct the Trustee as to what amount, if any,
shall be added to the Reserve Account to be applied to the settlement of, or any other liability arising from, the written call options.
None of the
Trustee, the Depositor or the Portfolio Supervisor shall have any liability to any Unit holder or any other person for the failure to
reserve funds for claims which were not reasonably foreseeable based on the facts known to them at the time a Trust terminates. None of
the Trustee, the Depositor or the Portfolio Supervisor, or their respective officers, directors, trustees, shareholders, agents, partners
or employees, shall be personally liable to any person for liabilities arising from the administration of a Trust or from its assets;
for all such liabilities, persons transacting with the Trustee, the Depositor or the Portfolio Supervisor, acting in their fiduciary or
other representative capacity for the account of the Trust, shall have recourse solely to the assets of the Trust then in the custody
of the Trustee or other custodian of Trust assets."
anything to the contrary in the Standard Terms and Conditions of Trust, Section 3.07(k) shall be replaced with the following:
that such sale is necessary for the Trust to comply with such federal and/or state laws, regulations and/or regulatory actions and interpretations
which may be in effect from time to time."
second sentence of Section 3.06 of the Standard Terms and Conditions of Trust is deleted and replaced by the following:
a reasonable period of time after the last Business Day of each calendar year, the Trustee shall prepare a statement setting forth,
with respect to such calendar year and with respect to each Trust in existence during any part of such calendar year, the
information specified below. The Depositor will make the statement available at the Depositor’s website (xxx.xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxx)
