APPENDIX 1
IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES BY FIDUCIARY TRUST

Although the Account statements contain information from sources considered reliable, neither Fiduciary Trust Company International (“Fiduciary Trust”) nor any of its subsidiaries, affiliates, or vendors makes any representations or warranties, express or implied, concerning the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of such information. The Account statements should be examined carefully. Any errors or inquiries should be communicated to the portfolio manager, relationship manager or account officer immediately.

Fiduciary Trust has, without any independent verification, assumed that any information that has been provided to it is accurate and complete. Any changes in the client's financial situation, investment objectives, or any modification of any reasonable restrictions to the management of the account should be communicated to the portfolio manager, relationship manager or account officer.

As portfolio holdings are subject to change, specific holdings mentioned may or may not be in the Account from time to time.

Account value is a snapshot of the estimated value of the Account (excluding accruals) based on the price at the close of trading of the market on which an asset is traded prior to close of business on the last day of the Account statement period, including cash and the market value of the holdings (where available and as described below). It reflects all deposits received and withdrawals/deductions (e.g., applicable transaction fees, custody fees, account expenses) Fiduciary Trust has posted to the Account during that period. It does not reflect the outstanding balance of any loans that Fiduciary Trust has issued to you nor does it reflect the value of any banking/checking accounts maintained with Fiduciary Trust outside the investment account.

All quotations and income estimates are expressed in U.S. dollars (or the account's designated base currency, if other than USD), which currency is referred to as "the base currency." Non-USD currency denominated par value is indicated in the security description by ( ) containing the appropriate currency symbol.

Asset positions are established and reflected on trade date. Outstanding payable and receivable information is provided in the "Short Term" section.

Market value information (including, without limitation, prices, accrued income, currency exchange rates and values for certain direct investments which may be held by a third party, such as interests in certain limited partnerships) and other information furnished in this Statement are based on data obtained from one or more third party vendors, including, without limitation, Third Party Valuation Sources. Fiduciary Trust shall have no responsibility for the accuracy and timeliness of any such data obtained from third party vendors.

Subtotals displayed in the "% of Market Value" columns for both equity and fixed income holdings are subject to rounding differences.

Equity securities are valued at the closing price at the close of trading on the market on which an asset is traded immediately prior to close of business on the last banking business day of the Account statement period. If a closing price is unavailable, the last trade information is used.

Fixed income securities are valued at the most recent available mean price on the relevant primary financial market prior to close of business on the last banking business day of the Account statement period. If a closing price is unavailable, the last trade information is used.

Exchange-traded futures and options are valued at the most recent available mean price on the relevant exchange prior to the close of business on the last banking business day of the Account statement period.

Market values exclude income accrued before payable date. From payable date onward, uncollected income will be reflected under "income receivables" in the "Short Term" section.

Current market value of foreign exchange contracts is derived using forward replacement rates for the relevant time periods.

Over-the-counter currency option values are derived from information supplied by the original deal maker.

Market value of non-base currency denominated assets is determined by applying the closing foreign exchange rates as of the statement date. Non-base currency balances are accounted for using the average cost method. All assets are valued as of the Statement date and unrealized gains/losses result from the valuation difference between the acquisition cost and current market value.

Foreign exchange rates are used to determine value in the base currency equivalent as of the Account statement date for all non-base currency assets except for forward foreign exchange contracts.

Market value of non-base cash and pending currency balances is determined by applying the closing foreign exchange rates as of the Account statement date. Unrealized gains/losses result from the valuation difference between acquisition cost and market value.

Some assets may be valued at cost when no prevailing market exists. Assets for which component holdings are not readily available are presented as a single position, not broken down by their underlying holdings.

All cash receipts and disbursements transactions are reported in base currency equivalent. All non-base currency balances are accounted for using the average cost method. Currency equivalents are shown for informational purposes only. Such values may not be available in effecting actual currency conversions.

Spot foreign exchange contracts are executed to facilitate non-base currency transactions. Forward foreign exchange contracts may be executed to manage (hedge) currency exposure for non-base currency asset positions.

The base equivalent value of pending balances may change upon settlement based on the currency exchange rates at the time of settlement.

When available, bond ratings appear at the end of the security description: municipal bonds are rated by Moody's, corporate and other bonds by Standard & Poor's. Non-USD bonds generally are not rated in a manner consistent with U.S. practice.

Money Market Deposit Accounts ("MMDA's") are transferable only on Fiduciary Trust's books; Fiduciary Trust may request seven days' notice of withdrawals. The interest rate shown is that which was applied to the average MMDA balance for the month ending on the Account statement date. Estimated MMDA income assumes that the interest rate (which Fiduciary Trust may adjust in its discretion from time to time) will remain in effect for the next year and settlement of all pending transactions.

For taxable accounts, the income and realized capital gain/loss information may not be all inclusive and has not necessarily been verified. In addition, for purposes of computing gains and losses on limited partnership interests, the cost basis of any master limited partnership has not been adjusted to reflect the current capital account. This section may include information furnished by or on behalf of the client, including, without limitation, by a Third-Party Valuation Source. Consultation with a tax advisor may be advisable.

Realized and Unrealized Gains and Losses information is provided for informational purposes only. Fiduciary Trust recommends that a tax advisor be contacted to determine the appropriate information to be used in the preparation of any tax return. Fiduciary Trust selects highest cost securities to sell first unless other securities are chosen by the portfolio manager or another selection method is designated by the client. This Gain and Loss summary is not a substitute 1099 (or any appropriate tax form.) Any change in the accounting method Fiduciary Trust applies to the Account should be communicated to the portfolio manager, relationship manager or account officer.

Fiduciary Trust and its affiliates will receive, and may share, compensation for investment management services from each mutual fund managed by an affiliate of Fiduciary Trust (“Affiliated Fund”) in which the account invests.
