Important Legal Disclosures & Information

Allocation of Callable Securities Your account may contain “callable” securities, which allow the issuer to repurchase or redeem the securities by a specified date. In the event of a partial redemption or call of securities by the issuer, PNC Capital Markets LLC will allocate among its customers, the securities being selected as called, on a fair and impartial basis through a randomized lottery system. If your account contains callable securities subject to a partial redemption or call, the probability of your securities being selected as called is proportional to the holdings of all customers of such securities held in bulk by PNC Capital Markets LLC. Notwithstanding the foregoing statements, PNC Capital Markets LLC will further ensure equitable allocation of the callable securities by excluding itself as well as its interested persons from the lottery system when the redemption is made on terms that are favorable to PNC Capital Markets LLC; and including itself as well as its interested persons in the lottery system when the redemption is made on terms that are unfavorable to PNC Capital Markets LLC.
