2 The Investment Manager will determine and announce an Indicative Repayment Rate for each 12-month period. However, the amount of Principal Repayments, if any, will be determined by the Bank in its sole discretion based on the performance of the Portfolio.

3 This historical information relates to Class A units of each Fund as at June 30, 2007 and assumes all distributions were reinvested in additional units of the Funds. The returns are shown after the payment of applicable fees and expenses of the Class A units, but have not been reduced by any applicable sales charges, deferred sales charge, optional charges or taxes. Past performance is not indicative of future returns or volatility of the Funds, and should not be construed in any way as an indication of future returns on the Notes.

The above summary and the other material on this website is for information purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to purchase Notes. This should be read in conjunction with the Prospectus and applicable Pricing Supplement. The offering and sale of Notes may be prohibited or restricted by laws in certain jurisdictions. Notes may only be purchased where they may be lawfully offered for sale and only through individuals qualified to sell them.

Amounts, if any, paid to holders of Principal At Risk Notes will depend on the performance of the reference asset(s) described in the applicable Prospectus. Bank of Montreal does not guarantee that holders will receive an amount equal to the amount invested in the Principal At Risk Notes and does not guarantee that any return or distributions will be paid on the Principal At Risk Notes (other than any minimum amount that may be stipulated in the applicable Pricing Supplement). Since the principal amount of the Principal At Risk Notes will not be guaranteed and will be at risk, holders may not receive any amount at maturity (other than any minimum amount that may be stipulated in the applicable Pricing Supplement) and holders could lose substantially all of their investment in the Principal At Risk Notes. Please see the Prospectus and applicable Pricing Supplement for complete details, including the precise formula for determining the return, if any, on a Principal At Risk Note.
