* Annualised Securities Lending Return is calculated using unaudited 12 month net securities lending revenues to the fund divided by the average NAV of the fund over the same period. 60% of all securities lending revenues are paid directly into the fund, with BlackRock receiving 40% compensation which covers all operational costs. BlackRock’s policy is to disclose performance information quarterly subject to a one-month delay. This means that returns from 01 January 2011 to 31 December 2011 can be publicly disclosed from 01 February 2012. Annualised Securities Lending Return will not be displayed for the funds that have participated in securities lending for less than 12 months.

The value of investments in iShares Funds may fluctuate and investors may not get back the amount invested. Past performance may not be repeated and is no guarantee for future returns. Investment risks from market and currency losses as well as high volatility and concentration risk cannot be excluded.

The iShares funds domiciled in Dublin are sub-funds of iShares plc, iShares II plc or iShares III plc.

Each sub-funds has its own portfolio strategy which aims to replicate or as far as possible and practicable to hold the securities of the benchmark-index. The sales prospectuses for the Funds domiciled in Germany are available free of charge electronically and in hard copy from BlackRock Asset Management Deutschland AG, Max-Joseph-Str. 6, D-80333 Munich, Tel: +49 (0) 89 42729 – 5858, Fax: +49 (0) 89 42729 – 5958, Equity and Bond Funds replicate the respective underlying index directly whereas Swap Funds replicate it indirectly through the use of derivatives.

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.
