13 Advantages of CI M.A.X. Structure Increased initial exposure to the underlying funds.Portfolio Series Growth Note, S % initial exposure to Portfolio Series Growth FundPortfolio Series Income Note, S6 – 150% initial exposure to the Portfolio Series Income FundWith the potential for up to 200%In market conditions where the Funds perform well, additional exposure to the Funds may be achieved through a notional loan generating the potential for enhanced returns.In market conditions where the Funds perform negatively, reduced exposure may dampen losses in an effort to allow participation in any subsequent recovery.Low fees and interest charges help prolong Fund exposure by making the structure less prone to de-leveraging or allocating to Bonds.100% principal protection at maturity regardless of the performance of the Funds or the amount of leverage applied.
14 How Does CI M.A.X. Asset Allocation Work? Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance (CPPI) StructureOn the Issue Date, $135 per Portfolio Series Growth Note and $150 per Portfolio Series Income Note will be used to notionally purchase Units of the Funds.The Deposit Notes will dynamically allocate between Units of the Funds in the Fund Account and Bonds in a Bond Account. The Portfolio will be rebalanced from time to time in accordance with pre-defined Portfolio Allocation Rules.The leveraging or de-leveraging of the Fund Account will occur based on the “Distance” between the NAV of the Portfolio and the Floor Price (i.e., generally, the value of notional bonds maturing on the Maturity Date).The dynamic allocation strategy provides increased initial exposure (with potential for 200% exposure) to the Funds while still providing 100% principal protection at maturity.A reallocation will occur after a significant change in Distance has taken place.

16 An example of how CI M.A.X. Deposit Notes determine exposure? With the CIBC CI M.A.X. Deposit Notes, Portfolio Series Growth Note, S5, when “Target Exposure” differs from “Actual Exposure” by more than 25%, an Allocation Event will occur to bring Actual Exposure in line with Target Exposure.The allocation between these two asset classes is dynamic throughout the term of the Deposit Note. It depends on the distance (Dt) between the Basket NAV and the theoretical zero-coupon bond;the greater the distance, the Basket allocates greater percentage of assets to the Shares of Fund.Allocation based on “Target” vs. “Actual” ExposureThe Target Exposure at anytime is 5 × Distance. This relationship is shown in the table below. The Actual Exposure at anytime is the most recently set exposure, which is initially set at 105.3% (Initial investment of $100 divided by NAV of $95). The Distance is derived using the following formula: Distance = (NAV – Bond) / NAV.Here’s how it works: When the Target Exposure differs from the Actual Exposure by more than +/-25%, a reallocation will occur to bring the Actual exposure in line with the Target exposure. In other words, the Target exposure must change by more than 25% in either direction in order to trigger a reallocation.After a reallocation has taken place, the upper and lower limits are reset, which means the Target exposure would then have to deviate from the newly established Actual exposure by more than +/-25% in order to trigger the next reallocation event.Please refer to the diagram.Benefits of New structure:§ Promotes income stability since reallocation is less frequent.Takes emotion out of investing and allows the Fund more time to develop a meaningful trend before

19 Protection EventA “Protection Event” would occur when the “Distance” falls to within 1.50% of the “Floor”, at which point the assets would become fully allocated to Bonds until maturity, regardless of the subsequent performance of the Fund.The diagram above demonstrates negative performance of the Fund, and the resulting return of the hypothetical Deposit Notes with the Coupon Option.* Because the Portfolio is gradually de-levered and invested in Bonds as the Deposit Note’s NAV falls in value, the actual value of the Units can fall significantly before a Protection Event occurs.* A Protection Event occurs in Year 5 when the “Distance” falls to less than 1.5% of the NAV of the Deposit Note, at which point the Portfolio would remain fully invested in Bonds until maturity regardless of the subsequent performance of the Fund.* In this example, a direct investment in Units of the Fund would not have returned its original value after eight years; whereas an investment in the Deposit Notes would have paid monthly coupons of $9.21 over the term, and a Final Variable Payment of $1.49 and the initial investment of $100 per Deposit Note on the Maturity Date.
