2008 Annual General and Special Meeting of Members

The MFDA held its 2008 Annual General and Special Meeting of Members (“AGM) on
Thursday, December 4, 2008.

At the AGM, Stephen Geist, Peter W. Glaab and Robert M. Sellars, were approved as Industry
Directors of the Corporation to hold office for two-year terms until the 2010 Annual General
Meeting of Members or until their respective successors have been appointed.

In light of the fact that the proposed amendments to the definition of “Public Director” and the
terms of office for directors in MFDA By-law No. 1 were not approved by the Members at the
AGM, the consideration of the three nominated Public Directors did not occur. As a result, the
terms of the two existing Pubic Directors, Robert J. Wright and Janet K. Pau, continue until their
successors are appointed and there continues to be a Public Director vacancy.

In addition, the Members in attendance at the AGM approved the appointment of Deloitte &
Touche LLP as auditors for the Corporation and confirmed the amendments to the MFDA Rules
and the MFDA Financial Questionnaire and Report described in the meeting materials circulated
with the Notice of Meeting, with the exception of MFDA Rule 1.1.7 (Business Names, Styles,
Etc.). In light of confusion expressed by certain Members with respect to the effect of the
proposed housekeeping amendments to Rule 1.1.7, the proposed amendments were withdrawn
from consideration at the AGM with the consent of the Members.

The 2009 Annual General Meeting of MFDA Members will take place on Thursday, December
3, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. (Eastern) at a location to be announced.
