E Chairman’s Report Ethical Wave is a new and innovative bank which has given 150 years of profitable service as an investment bank to select companies. In March of 1998 the bank was acquired by Seam Investments Limited and a new Board of Directors and Management Team appointed. In keeping with Seam’s people-oriented policy EW opened its doors to the general public and placed at their disposal years of investment and banking knowledge. We offer friendly service and investment advice through new and varied account options, and look forward to expanding our customer base through 2000 to the new millennium. In the year under review, the Trust Funds that invest in stocks and shares were affected by the continued fluctuations in the values of Stocks at home and abroad. On 4th November 1998, EW introduced daily pricing of Unit Trust Funds, a major change from the weekly pricing which had been in effect since 1966. During the year, sales of new units amounted to $2,250 million. Encashments totalled $1,700 million. In the year under review, the economy continued through a period of change. Features of business activity during this period were concerns about the value of the dollar, high interest rates and high levels of inflation. The Canadian dollar remained stable during the period at C$ 1.66 to

US$1.00. Interest rates have continued to be high; deposit rates are in the 2% per annum range and lending rates are at 6% and above. The Canadian Stock Market experienced a period of fluctuating activity as values and volumes rose and declined. The Stock Exchange Index moved from 13,100 points at the start of the period under review to 15,300 points at the end of April 1998. In January 1999 the Index was at 19,600 points. Activity on the Stock Market has continued in a declining mode. At the date of this Report, the Index was at 14,500 points. At the end of February 1999 Dr J. Nite, Mrs. V. Audit and Mr. M. Mighty resigned from the Board of Directors. I must record our deep appreciation of the contributions made by the former Board over a period of many years. Our present Board was elected on 1st March 1999, and we look forward to a long and profitable relationship with them. I wish to record our thanks and appreciation to our Unit holders for their support. I must express my thanks to the Directors for their support and to the Management and Staff for their hard work and dedication.

John Smith, Chairman, 20th March, 1999.
