As with other investments, investors should be aware that the price of your investment (which may trade in limited markets) may go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you invested. In addition your income is not fixed and may fluctuate. Investors are advised to seek the advice of an independent financial advisor in assessing the suitability of iShares as an investment.

Extraordinary distribution

Due to the change of the custodian for iShares plc, iShares II plc and iShares III plc ("iShares Funds"), in order to maintain the UK Distributor Status on iShares Funds, an extra distribution has been scheduled for certain sub-funds in the iShares Funds (distributions with Ex-Dates 27/04/2010, 26/05/2010 or 23/06/2010). The distribution yield calculation as shown on the website takes into account the last 12 month of fund distributions so the addition of the extra distribution ahead of the regular scheduled distribution has artificially elevated the distribution yields for some of the sub-funds in the iShares Funds. This effect is of a technical nature only and is temporary.
