Harvest Brand Leaders Plus Income ETF

The Fund originally commenced operations as a TSX listed closed-end fund on July 24, 2014 and converted into an exchange-traded fund on October 24, 2016. Commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with investing in Harvest Exchange Traded Funds (managed by Harvest Portfolios Group Inc.). Please read the relevant prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account income taxes payable by any security holder that would have reduced returns. The funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Distributions are paid to you in cash unless you request, pursuant to your participation in a distribution reinvestment plan, that they be reinvested into Class A, Class B or Class U units of the Fund. If the Fund earns less than the amounts distributed, the difference is a return of capital. Tax, investment and all other decisions should be made with guidance from a qualified professional.

* Represents aggregate AUM of all classes denominated in Canadian dollars.

** Inception Date:  Class A is 2014/07/24;  Class B is 2020/03/12; Class U is 2014/07/24.

*** Notional non-cash distributions are paid annually (if any). There is no impact on net asset value per unit. The notional distribution is added to the cost base of the ETF and is taxable if not held in a registered account (RSP/RIF/TFSA and RESP).

† The first year of Calendar Year Performance presents the rate of return from commencement of operations to December 31 of that year.

 Source: Bloomberg. Average statistics calculated based on portfolio weighted average. Dividend yield (gross) based on Bloomberg indicated 12 month yield of portfolios positions and does not represent the distribution yield paid to investors. The above information is for illustrative purposes only, is estimated and unaudited.

# For illustrative purposes only. The chart above only shows the market value per unit of Harvest Brand Leaders Income Plus ETF ("HBF") using the daily market close on the TSX and identifies the monthly cash distributions paid by HBF on a cumulative basis. The cash distributions are not compounded or treated as reinvested, and the chart does not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder. The chart is not a performance chart and is not indicative of future market values of HBF or returns on investment in HBF, which will vary.
