Designation of Eligible Dividends

Equitable Group Inc., for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), and any similar provincial and territorial tax legislation, advises that all of its dividends paid to Canadian residents on common or preferred shares in 2006 are eligible dividends and all dividends paid thereafter will be eligible dividends unless indicated otherwise.

Dividend Restrictions

Equitable Group Inc. is prohibited by the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) from declaring dividends on its preferred or common shares if there are reasonable grounds for believing that (a) Equitable Group Inc. is, or the payment would cause Equitable Group Inc. to be, unable to pay its liabilities as they become due, or (b)  the realizable value of Equitable Group Inc.’s assets would thereby be less than the aggregate of, (i) its liabilities, and (ii) its stated capital of all classes. Equitable Group Inc. does not anticipate that this condition will restrict it from paying dividends in the normal course of business.
