1 This value is determined as a percentage of the net asset value of the Deposit Notes, assumes 200% exposure to the Fund and an annual distribution of 7% is maintained on the Fund. As at September 16, 2005, the indicated distribution on the Fund was 6.65%. There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet a 7% annual yield or make any distributions, or that 200% leverage will be achieved on the Deposit Notes. Accordingly, the amount of interest paid for any month during the term of the Deposit Notes will likely vary and could be zero.

2 CIBC World Markets Inc. will maintain a liquid secondary market for the Deposit Notes, but reserves the right not to do so in the future, without providing prior notice to investors. Redemption through FundSERV would be a sale to CIBC World Markets Inc. in the secondary market. An investor who sells a Deposit Note prior to maturity will have to pay an early trading charge, deductible from the proceeds of the Deposit Note, of 6.95% initially, reducing to 0% after three (3) years.
