** All share dividend payments are subject to declaration by our Board of Directors.
Please note that the quarterly dividend payable on Brookfield's Class A Limited Voting Shares is declared in US dollars. Registered shareholders who are U.S. residents receive their dividends in U.S. dollars, unless they request the Cdn. dollar equivalent. Registered shareholders who are Canadian residents receive their dividends in the Cdn. dollar equivalent, unless they request to receive dividends in U.S. dollars. The Canadian dollar equivalent of the quarterly dividend is based on the Bank of Canada noon exchange rate on the record date or, if this falls on a weekend or holiday, on the following business day.
Effective January 31, 2008, Brookfield’s Board of Directors paid a special dividend of one unit of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. (BIP) per 25 Class A Limited Voting Shares held by shareholders of record at the close of business on January 14, 2008. The units commenced trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), under the symbol BIP, on January 31, 2008. Fractional shares were paid in cash based on the weighted average trading price of units on the NYSE for the five trading days following the commencement of trading, which has been calculated to be US$20.5565 per unit.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan
Registered shareholders of our Class A Limited Voting Shares who are resident in the United States may elect to receive their dividends in the form of issued Class A Limited Voting Shares at a price equal to the volume-weighted average price (in U.S. dollars) at which board lots of shares traded on the NYSE based on the average closing price during each of the five trading days immediately preceding the relevant dividend payment date on which at least one board lot of shares has traded, as reported by the NYSE ("NYSE VWAP").
Registered shareholders of our Class A Limited Voting Shares who are resident in Canada may also elect to receive their dividends in the form of issued Class A Limited Voting Shares at a price equal to the NYSE VWAP multiplied by an exchange factor which is calculated as the average noon exchange rate as reported by the Bank of Canada during each of the five trading days immediately preceding the relevant dividend payment date.
Utilization of the Plan allows current shareholders to acquire additional shares in Brookfield Asset Management Inc. without payment of commissions.
