Eligible initial public offerings that are eligible for inclusion will be considered for inclusion on a fast-track basis.

If an index component’s stock is discontinued due to a merger or acquisition, the index committee may, at its sole discretion, replace the discontinued component at the time of discontinuation if more than 30 calendar days remain until the next reconstitution date. The discontinued component will either be deleted entirely or be replaced with the next eligible security from a reserve list. The replacement will be given the appropriate weighting given the securities country of domicile. If there are not more than 30 calendar days remaining until the next reconstitution date, the index committee will wait until the next reconstitution date to make the replacement. In this scenario, any funds received from the discontinued security will be distributed to the remaining index components pro rata.
