The WisdomTree Japan SmallCap Dividend Index is comprised of dividend-paying small capitalization companies in Japan. The Index is then created by removing the 300 largest companies by market capitalization from Japanese companies that meet the underlying liquidity and size screens, as of the annual Index rebalance. Companies are weighted in the Index based on annual cash dividends paid. The Index, established with a base value of 200 on May 31, 2006, is calculated in US dollars and is updated to reflect market prices and exchange rates. Closing or last-sale prices are used when non-U.S. markets are closed.

Index performance assumes reinvestment of dividends, but does not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or other expenses that would be incurred by a portfolio or fund, or brokerage commissions on transactions in Fund shares. Such fees, expenses and commissions could reduce returns.
