(a) Each of the parties hereto, by entering into this Trust Agreement, (i) expresses its intention that the Units of each Fund will qualify under applicable tax law as interests in a partnership which holds the Trust Estate of each Fund, (ii) agrees that it will file its own U.S. federal, state and local income, franchise and other tax returns in a manner that is consistent with the classification of each Fund as a partnership in which each of the Unitholders thereof is a partner and (iii) agrees to use reasonable efforts to notify the Managing Owner promptly upon a receipt of any notice from any taxing authority having jurisdiction over such holders of Units of each Fund with respect to the treatment of the Units of such Fund as anything other than interests in a partnership.

(b) The Tax Matters Partner (as defined in Section 6231 of the Code and any corresponding state and local tax law) of each Fund initially shall be the Managing Owner. The Tax Matters Partner, at the expense of each Fund, (i) shall prepare or cause to be prepared and filed each Fund’s tax returns as a partnership for U.S. federal, state and local tax purposes and (ii) shall be authorized to perform all duties imposed by Section 6221 et seq. of the Code, including, without limitation, (A) the power to conduct all audits and other administrative proceedings with respect to each Fund’s tax items; (B) the power to extend the statute of limitations for all Unitholders with respect to each Fund’s tax items; (C) the power to file a petition with an appropriate U.S. federal court for review of a final administrative adjustment of any Fund; and (D) the power to enter into a settlement with the IRS on behalf of, and binding upon, those Limited Owners having less than 1% interest in any Fund, unless a Limited Owner shall have notified the IRS and the Managing Owner that the Managing Owner shall not act on such Limited Owner’s behalf. The designation made by each Unitholder of a Fund in this Section 1.6(b) is hereby approved by each Unitholder of such Fund as an express condition to becoming a Unitholder. Each Unitholder agrees to take any further action as may be required by regulation or otherwise to effectuate such designation. Subject to Section 4.7, each Fund hereby indemnifies, to the full extent permitted by law, the Managing Owner from and against any damages or losses (including attorneys’ fees) arising out of or incurred in connection with any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in carrying out its responsibilities as Tax Matters Partner, provided such action taken or omitted to be taken does not constitute fraud, negligence or misconduct.

10

SECTION 1.7. General Liability of the Managing Owner.

(a) The Managing Owner shall be liable for the acts, omissions, obligations and expenses of each Fund, to the extent not paid out of the assets of each Fund, to the same extent the Managing Owner would be so liable as if each Fund were a partnership under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act and the Managing Owner were a general partner of such partnership. The foregoing provision shall not, however, limit the ability of the Managing Owner to limit its liability by contract. The obligations of the Managing Owner under this Section 1.7 shall be evidenced by its ownership of the General Units which, solely for purposes of the Delaware Trust Statute, will be deemed to be a separate class of Units of each Fund. Without limiting or affecting the liability of the Managing Owner as set forth in this Section 1.7, notwithstanding anything in this Trust Agreement to the contrary, Persons having any claim against the Trust or any Fund by reason of the transactions contemplated by this Trust Agreement and any other agreement, instrument, obligation or other undertaking to which the Trust or any Fund is a party, shall look only to the appropriate Fund Trust Estate for payment or satisfaction thereof.

(b) Subject to Sections 8.1 and 8.3 hereof, no Unitholder, other than the Managing Owner, to the extent set forth above, shall have any personal liability for any liability or obligation of the Trust or any Fund.

SECTION 1.8. Legal Title. Legal title to all of the Trust Estate of each Fund shall be vested in the Trust as a separate legal entity; provided, however, that where applicable law in any jurisdiction requires any part of the Trust Estate to be vested otherwise, the Managing Owner may cause legal title to the Trust Estate or any portion thereof to be held by or in the name of the Managing Owner or any other Person (other than a Unitholder) as nominee.

SECTION 1.9. Series Trust. The Units of the Trust shall be divided into series, each a Fund, as provided in Section 3806(b)(2) of the Delaware Trust Statute. Accordingly, it is the intent of the parties hereto that Articles IV, V, VII, VIII, IX and X of this Trust Agreement shall apply also with respect to each such Fund as if each such Fund were a separate statutory trust under the Delaware Trust Statute, and each reference to the term “Trust” in such Articles shall be deemed to be a reference to each Fund separately to the extent necessary to give effect to the foregoing intent, as the context may require. The use of the terms “Trust”, “Fund” or “series” in this Trust Agreement shall in no event alter the intent of the parties hereto that the Trust receive the full benefit of the limitation on interseries liability as set forth in Section 3804 of the Delaware Trust Statute.

ARTICLE II

THE TRUSTEE

SECTION 2.1. Term; Resignation.

(a) Wilmington Trust Company has been appointed and hereby agrees to serve as the Trustee of the Trust. The Trust shall have only one Trustee unless otherwise determined by the Managing Owner. The Trustee shall serve until such time as the Managing Owner removes the Trustee or the Trustee resigns and a successor Trustee is appointed by the Managing Owner in accordance with the terms of Section 2.5 hereof.

11

(b) The Trustee may resign at any time upon the giving of at least sixty (60) days’ advance written notice to the Trust; provided, that such resignation shall not become effective unless and until a successor Trustee shall have been appointed by the Managing Owner in accordance with Section 2.5 hereof. If the Managing Owner does not act within such sixty (60) day period, the Trustee may apply, at the expense of the Trust, to the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware for the appointment of a successor Trustee.

SECTION 2.2. Powers. The Trustee shall have only the rights, duties, obligations and liabilities specifically provided for herein and shall have no implied rights, duties, obligations and liabilities with respect to the business and affairs of the Trust or any Fund. The Trustee shall have the power and authority to execute and file certificates as required by the Delaware Trust Statute and to accept service of process on the Trust in the State of Delaware. The Trustee shall provide prompt notice to the Managing Owner of its performance of any of the foregoing. The Managing Owner shall reasonably keep the Trustee informed of any actions taken by the Managing Owner with respect to the Trust that would reasonably be expected to affect the rights, obligations or liabilities of the Trustee hereunder or under the Delaware Trust Statute.

SECTION 2.3. Compensation and Expenses of the Trustee. The Trustee shall be entitled to receive from the Managing Owner or an Affiliate of the Managing Owner (including the Trust) reasonable compensation for its services hereunder as set forth in a separate fee agreement and shall be entitled to be reimbursed by the Managing Owner or an Affiliate of the Managing Owner (including the Trust) for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by it in the performance of its duties hereunder, including without limitation, the reasonable compensation, out-of-pocket expenses and disbursements of counsel and such other agents as the Trustee may employ in connection with the exercise and performance of its rights and duties hereunder.

SECTION 2.4. Indemnification. The Trust (or if the Trust has insufficient assets, the Managing Owner) shall be liable for, and does hereby indemnify, protect, save and keep harmless the Trustee (in its capacity as Trustee and individually) and its successors, assigns, legal representatives, officers, directors, employees, agents and servants (the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, taxes (excluding any taxes payable by the Trustee on or measured by any compensation received by the Trustee for its services hereunder or any indemnity payments received by the Trustee pursuant to this Section 2.4), claims, actions, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements (including legal fees and expenses) of any kind and nature whatsoever (collectively, “Expenses”), which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Indemnified Parties in any way relating to or arising out of the formation, operation or termination of the Trust, the execution, delivery and performance of any other agreements to which the Trust is a party or the action or inaction of the Trustee hereunder or thereunder, except for Expenses resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Indemnified Parties. The indemnities contained in this Section 2.4 shall survive the termination of the Trust Agreement or the removal or resignation of the Trustee.

12

SECTION 2.5. Successor Trustee. Upon the resignation or removal of the Trustee, the Managing Owner shall appoint a successor Trustee by delivering a written instrument to the outgoing Trustee. Any successor Trustee must satisfy the requirements of Section 3807 of the Delaware Trust Statute. Any resignation or removal of the Trustee and appointment of a successor Trustee shall not become effective until a written acceptance of appointment is delivered by the successor Trustee to the outgoing Trustee and the Managing Owner and any fees and expenses due to the outgoing Trustee are paid. Following compliance with the preceding sentence, the successor Trustee shall become fully vested with all of the rights, powers, duties and obligations of the outgoing Trustee under this Trust Agreement, with like effect as if originally named as Trustee, and the outgoing Trustee shall be discharged of its duties and obligations under this Trust Agreement.

SECTION 2.6. Liability of Trustee. Except as otherwise provided in this Article II, in accepting the trust created hereby, Wilmington Trust Company acts solely as Trustee hereunder and not in its individual capacity, and all Persons having any claim against Wilmington Trust Company by reason of the transactions contemplated by this Trust Agreement and any other agreement to which the Trust or any Fund is a party shall look only to the appropriate Fund Trust Estate for payment or satisfaction thereto; provided, however, that in no event is the foregoing intended to affect or limit the liability of the Managing Owner as set forth in Section 1.7 hereof. The Trustee shall not be liable or accountable hereunder to the Trust or to any other Person or under any other agreement to which the Trust or any Fund is a party, except for the Trustee’s own gross negligence or willful misconduct. In particular, but not by way of limitation:

(a) The Trustee shall have no liability or responsibility for the validity or sufficiency of this Trust Agreement or for the form, character, genuineness, sufficiency, value or validity of any Trust Estate;

(b) The Trustee shall not be liable for any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it in accordance with the instructions of the Managing Owner or the Liquidating Trustee;

(c) The Trustee shall not have any liability for the acts or omissions of the Managing Owner or its delegatees;

(d) The Trustee shall not be liable for its failure to supervise the performance of any obligations of the Managing Owner or its delegatees or any Participant or Commodity Broker;

(e) No provision of this Trust Agreement shall require the Trustee to act or expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of any of its rights or powers hereunder if the Trustee shall have reasonable grounds for believing that such action, repayments of such funds or adequate indemnity against such risk or liability is not reasonably assured or provided to it;

13

(f) Under no circumstances shall the Trustee be liable for indebtedness evidenced by or other obligations of the Trust or any Fund arising under this Trust Agreement or any other agreements to which the Trust or any Fund is a party;

(g) The Trustee shall be under no obligation to exercise any of the rights or powers vested in it by this Trust Agreement, or to institute, conduct or defend any litigation under this Trust Agreement or any other agreements to which the Trust or any Fund is a party, at the request, order or direction of the Managing Owner or any Unitholders unless the Managing Owner or such Unitholders have offered to Wilmington Trust Company (in its capacity as Trustee and individually) security or indemnity satisfactory to it against the costs, expenses and liabilities that may be incurred by Wilmington Trust Company (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of its counsel) therein or thereby;

(h) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Trustee shall not be required to take any action in any jurisdiction other than in the State of Delaware if the taking of such action will (i) require the consent or approval or authorization or order of or the giving of notice to, or the registration with or taking of any action in respect of, any state or other governmental authority or agency of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware, (ii) result in any fee, tax or other governmental charge under the laws of any jurisdiction or any political subdivision thereof in existence as of the date hereof other than the State of Delaware becoming payable by the Trustee or (iii) subject the Trustee to personal jurisdiction, other than in the State of Delaware, for causes of action arising from personal acts unrelated to the consummation of the transactions by the Trustee, as the case may be, contemplated hereby; and

(i) To the extent that, at law or in equity, the Trustee has duties (including fiduciary duties) and liabilities relating thereto to the Trust, the Unitholders or to any other Person, the Trustee acting under this Trust Agreement shall not be liable to the Trust, the Unitholders or to any other Person for its good faith reliance on the provisions of this Trust Agreement. The provisions of this Trust Agreement, to the extent that they restrict the duties and liabilities of the Trustee otherwise existing at law or in equity are agreed by the parties hereto to replace such other duties and liabilities of the Trustee.

SECTION 2.7. Reliance; Advice of Counsel.

(a) In the absence of bad faith, the Trustee may conclusively rely upon certificates or opinions furnished to the Trustee and conforming to the requirements of this Trust Agreement in determining the truth of the statements and the correctness of the opinions contained therein, and shall incur no liability to anyone in acting on any signature, instrument, notice, resolutions, request, consent, order, certificate, report, opinion, bond or other document or paper believed by it to be genuine and believed by it to be signed by the proper party or parties and need not investigate any fact or matter pertaining to or in any such document; provided, however, that the Trustee shall have examined any certificates or opinions so as to reasonably determine compliance of the same with the requirements of this Trust Agreement. The Trustee may accept a certified copy of a resolution of the board of directors or other governing body of any corporate party as conclusive evidence that such resolution has been duly adopted by such body and that the same is in full force and effect. As to any fact or matter the method of the determination of which is not specifically prescribed herein, the Trustee may for all purposes

14

hereof rely on a certificate, signed by the president or any vice president or by the treasurer or other authorized officers of the relevant party, as to such fact or matter, and such certificate shall constitute full protection to the Trustee for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in reliance thereon.

(b) In the exercise or administration of the Trust hereunder and in the performance of its duties and obligations under this Trust Agreement, the Trustee, at the expense of the Managing Owner or an Affiliate of the Managing Owner (including the Trust) (i) may act directly or through its agents, attorneys, custodians or nominees pursuant to agreements entered into with any of them, and the Trustee shall not be liable for the conduct or misconduct of such agents, attorneys, custodians or nominees if such agents, attorneys, custodians or nominees shall have been selected by the Trustee with reasonable care and (ii) may consult with counsel, accountants and other skilled professionals to be selected with reasonable care by it. The Trustee shall not be liable for anything done, suffered or omitted in good faith by it in accordance with the opinion or advice of any such counsel, accountant or other such Persons.

SECTION 2.8. Payments to the Trustee. Any amounts paid to the Trustee pursuant to this Article shall be deemed not to be a part of any Trust Estate immediately after such payment. Any amounts owing to the Trustee under this Trust Agreement shall constitute a claim against the applicable Trust Estate.

ARTICLE III

CAPITAL CONTRIBUTIONS; CREATIONS AND ISSUANCE OF CREATION BASKETS

SECTION 3.1. General.

(a) The Managing Owner shall have the power and authority, without Limited Owner approval, to issue Units in one or more series, or Funds, from time to time as it deems necessary or desirable. Each Fund shall be separate from all other Funds created as series of the Trust in respect of the assets and liabilities allocated to that Fund and shall represent a separate investment portfolio of the Trust. The Managing Owner shall have exclusive power without the requirement of Limited Owner approval to establish and designate such separate and distinct series, as set forth in Section 3.2, and to fix and determine the relative rights and preferences as between the Units of the Funds as to right of redemption, special and relative rights as to dividends and other distributions and on liquidation, conversion rights, and conditions under which the Funds shall have separate voting rights or no voting rights.

(b) The Managing Owner may, without Limited Owner approval, divide or subdivide Units of any Fund into two or more classes or sub-classes, Units of each such class or sub-class having such preferences and special or relative rights and privileges as the Managing Owner may determine as provided in Section 3.3. The fact that a Fund shall have been initially established and designated without any specific establishment or designation of classes or sub-classes, shall not limit the authority of the Managing Owner to divide a Fund and establish and designate separate classes or sub-classes thereof.

15

(c) The number of Fund Units authorized shall be unlimited, and the Units so authorized may be represented in part by fractional Units, calculated to four decimal places. From time to time, the Managing Owner may divide or combine the Units of any Fund or class thereof into a greater or lesser number without thereby changing the proportionate beneficial interests in the Fund or class thereof. The Managing Owner may issue Units of any Fund or class thereof for such consideration and on such terms as it may determine (or for no consideration if pursuant to a Unit dividend or split-up), all without action or approval of the Limited Owners thereof. All Units when so issued on the terms determined by the Managing Owner shall be fully paid and non-assessable. The Managing Owner may classify or reclassify any unissued Units or any Units previously issued and reacquired of any Fund or class thereof into one or more series or classes thereof that may be established and designated from time to time. The Managing Owner may hold as treasury Units, reissue for such consideration and on such terms as it may determine, or cancel, at its discretion from time to time, any Units of any Fund or class thereof reacquired by the Trust. Unless otherwise determined by the Managing Owner, treasury Units shall not be deemed cancelled. The Units of each Fund shall initially be divided into two classes: General Units and Limited Units.

(d) The Managing Owner and/or its Affiliates has made an investment of $1,000 in each Fund.

(e) Other than contemplated by Section 3.5, no certificates or other evidence of beneficial ownership of the Units will be issued.

(f) Every Unitholder, by virtue of having purchased or otherwise acquired a Unit, shall be deemed to have expressly consented and agreed to be bound by the terms of this Trust Agreement.

SECTION 3.2. Establishment of Series, or Funds, of the Trust.

(a) Without limiting the authority of the Managing Owner set forth in Section 3.2(b) to establish and designate any further series, the Managing Owner has heretofore established and designated seven initial series, or Funds, as follows:

PowerShares DB Energy Fund;

PowerShares DB Oil Fund;

PowerShares DB Precious Metals Fund;

PowerShares DB Gold Fund;

PowerShares DB Silver Fund;

PowerShares DB Base Metals Fund; and

PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund.

The provisions of this Article III shall be applicable to the above-designated Funds and any further Fund that may from time to time be established and designated by the Managing Owner as provided in Section 3.2(b); provided, however, that such provisions may be amended, varied or abrogated by the Managing Owner with respect to any Fund created after the initial formation of the Trust in the written instrument creating such Fund.

16

(b) The establishment and designation of any series, or Funds, other than those set forth above shall be effective upon the execution by the Managing Owner of an instrument setting forth such establishment and designation and the relative rights and preferences of such series, or Funds, or as otherwise provided in such instrument. At any time that there are no Units outstanding of any particular series previously established and designated, the Managing Owner may by an instrument executed by it abolish that series and the establishment and designation thereof. Each instrument referred to in this Section shall have the status of an amendment to this Trust Agreement.

SECTION 3.3. Establishment of Classes and Sub-Classes. The division of any series, or Funds, into two or more classes or sub-classes and the establishment and designation of such classes or sub-classes shall be effective upon the execution by the Managing Owner of an instrument setting forth such division, and the establishment, designation, and relative rights and preferences of such classes, or as otherwise provided in such instrument. The relative rights and preferences of the classes or sub-classes of any series may differ in such respects as the Managing Owner may determine to be appropriate, provided that such differences are set forth in the aforementioned instrument. At any time that there are no Units outstanding of any particular class or sub-class previously established and designated, the Managing Owner may by an instrument executed by it abolish that class or sub-class and the establishment and designation thereof. Each instrument referred to in this paragraph shall have the status of an amendment to this Trust Agreement.

SECTION 3.4. Offer of Limited Units, Procedures for Creation and Issuance of Creation Baskets.

(a) General. The following procedures, as supplemented by the more detailed procedures specified in the Exhibits, annexes, attachments and procedures, as applicable to the Participant Agreement for each Fund, which may be amended from time to time in accordance with the provisions of the Participant Agreement (and any such amendment will not constitute an amendment of this Trust Agreement), will govern the Trust with respect to the creation and issuance of Creation Baskets. Subject to the limitations upon and requirements for issuance of Creation Baskets stated herein and in such procedures, the number of Creation Baskets which may be issued by each Fund is unlimited.

(i) On any Business Day, each Participant may submit to the Managing Owner a purchase order and subscription agreement to subscribe for and agree to purchase one or more Creation Baskets for the applicable Fund (such request by a Participant, a “Purchase Order Subscription Agreement”) in the manner provided in the Participant Agreement. Purchase Order Subscription Agreements must be received by the Order Cut-Off Time on a Business Day (the “Purchase Order Subscription Date”). The Managing Owner will process Purchase Order Subscription Agreements only from Participants with respect to which a Participant Agreement for the Fund is in full force and effect. The Managing Owner will maintain and make available at the Trust’s principal offices during normal business hours a current list of the Participants for each Fund with respect to which a Participant Agreement is in full force and effect. The Managing Owner will deliver (or cause to be delivered) a copy of the Prospectus to each Fund Participant prior to its execution and delivery of the applicable Participant Agreement and prior to accepting any Purchase Order Subscription Agreement.

17

(ii) Any Purchase Order Subscription Agreement is subject to rejection by the Managing Owner pursuant to Section 3.4(c).

(iii) After accepting a Fund Participant’s Purchase Order Subscription Agreement, the Managing Owner will issue and deliver Creation Baskets to fill such Fund Participant’s Purchase Order Subscription Agreement as of noon New York time on the Business Day immediately following the Purchase Order Subscription Date, but only if by such time the Managing Owner has received (A) for its own account, the Transaction Fee, and (B) for the account of the applicable Fund the Creation Basket Capital Contribution due from the Fund Participant submitting the Purchase Order Subscription Agreement for the Fund.

(b) Deposit with the Depository. Upon issuing a Creation Basket for any Fund pursuant to a Purchase Order Subscription Agreement, the Managing Owner will cause the Trust to deposit the Creation Basket with the Depository in accordance with the Depository’s customary procedures, for credit to the account of the Fund Participant that submitted the Purchase Order Subscription Agreement.

(c) Rejection. For each Fund, the Managing Owner shall have the absolute right, but shall have no obligation, to reject any Purchase Order Subscription Agreement or Creation Basket Capital Contribution: (i) determined by the Managing Owner not to be in proper form; (ii) that the Managing Owner has determined would have adverse tax consequences to the Trust, any Fund or to any Limited Owners; (iii) the acceptance or receipt of which would, in the opinion of counsel to the Managing Owner, be unlawful; or (iv) if circumstances outside the control of the Managing Owner make it for all practical purposes not feasible to process creations of Creation Baskets. The Managing Owner shall not be liable to any person by reason of the rejection of any Purchase Order Subscription Agreement or Creation Basket Capital Contribution.

(d) Transaction Fee. For each Fund, a non-refundable transaction fee will be payable by a Fund Participant to the Managing Owner for its own account in connection with each Purchase Order Subscription Agreement pursuant to this Section and in connection with each Redemption Order of such Participant pursuant to Section 7.1 (each a “Transaction Fee”). The Transaction Fee charged in connection with each such creation and redemption shall be initially $500, but may be changed as provided below. Even though a single Purchase Order Subscription Agreement or Redemption Order may relate to multiple Creation Baskets, only a single Transaction Fee will be due for each Purchase Order or Redemption Order for a Fund. The Transaction Fee may subsequently be waived, modified, reduced, increased or otherwise changed by the Managing Owner, but will not in any event exceed 0.10 % of the Net Asset Value Per Basket of a Fund at the time of creation of a Creation Basket or redemption of a Redemption Basket, as the case may be. The Managing Owner shall notify the Depository of any agreement to change the Transaction Fee and shall not implement any increase for redemptions of outstanding Units until 30 days after the date of that notice. The amount of the Transaction Fee in effect at any given time shall be made available by the Trustee upon request.

18

(e) Global Certificate Only. Certificates for Creation Baskets will not be issued, other than the applicable Global Security issued to the Depository. So long as the Depository Agreement is in effect, Creation Baskets will be issued and redeemed and Limited Units will be transferable solely through the book-entry systems of the Depository and the DTC Participants and their Indirect Participants as more fully described in Section 3.5. The Depository may determine to discontinue providing its service with respect to Creation Baskets and Limited Units by giving notice to the Managing Owner pursuant to and in conformity with the provisions of the Depository Agreement and discharging its responsibilities with respect thereto under applicable law. Under such circumstances, the Managing Owner shall take action either to find a replacement for the Depository to perform its functions at a comparable cost and on terms acceptable to the Managing Owner or, if such a replacement is unavailable, to terminate the Trust or the Funds, as applicable.

SECTION 3.5. Book-Entry-Only System, Fund Global Securities.

(a) Global Security. The Trust and the Managing Owner will enter into the Depository Agreement pursuant to which the Depository will act as securities depository for Limited Units of each Fund. Limited Units of each Fund will be represented by a Global Security (which may consist of one or more certificates as required by the Depository), which will be registered, as the Depository shall direct, in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee for the Depository and deposited with, or on behalf of, the Depository. No other certificates evidencing Limited Units will be issued. The Global Security for each Fund shall be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C or described therein and shall represent such Limited Units as shall be specified therein, and may provide that it shall represent the aggregate amount of outstanding Limited Units of a Fund from time to time endorsed thereon and that the aggregate amount of outstanding Limited Units represented thereby may from time to time be increased or decreased to reflect creations or redemptions of Baskets. Any endorsement of a Global Security to reflect the amount, or any increase or decrease in the amount, of outstanding Limited Units represented thereby shall be made in such manner and upon instructions given by the Managing Owner on behalf of the Trust as specified in the Depository Agreement.

(b) Legend. Any Global Security issued to The Depository Trust Company or its nominee shall bear a legend substantially to the following effect: “Unless this certificate is presented by an authorized representative of The Depository Trust Company, a New York corporation (“DTC”), to the Trust or its agent for registration of transfer, exchange, or payment, and any certificate issued is registered in the name of Cede & Co. or in such other name as is requested by an authorized representative of DTC (and any payment is made to Cede & Co. or to such other entity as is required by an authorized representative of DTC), ANY TRANSFER, PLEDGE, OR OTHER USE HEREOF FOR VALUE OR OTHERWISE BY OR TO ANY PERSON IS WRONGFUL inasmuch as the registered owner hereof, Cede & Co., has an interest herein.”

(c) The Depository. The Depository has advised the Trust and the Managing Owner as follows: The Depository is a limited-purpose trust company organized under New York Banking Law, a “banking organization” within the meaning of the New York Banking Law, a member of the U.S. Federal Reserve System, a “clearing corporation” within the meaning of the New York Uniform Commercial Code, and a “clearing agency” registered pursuant to the

19

provisions of Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. DTC holds and provides asset servicing for DTC’s participants (the “DTC Participants”). DTC also facilitates the post-trade settlement among DTC Participants of sales and other securities transactions among the DTC Participants in deposited securities, through electronic computerized book-entry transfers and pledges between DTC Participants’ accounts. This eliminates the need for physical movement of securities certificates. DTC Participants include both U.S. and non-U.S. securities brokers and dealers, banks, trust companies, clearing corporations, and certain other organizations. DTC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”). DTCC is the holding company for DTC, National Securities Clearing Corporation and Fixed Income Clearing Corporation, all of which are registered clearing agencies. DTCC is owned by the users of its regulated subsidiaries. Access to the DTC system is also available to others such as both U.S. and non-U.S. securities, brokers and dealers, banks, trust companies, and clearing corporations that clear through or maintain a custodial relationship with a DTC Participant, either directly or indirectly (“Indirect Participants”).

(d) Beneficial Owners. As provided in the Depository Agreement, upon the settlement date of any creation, transfer or redemption of Limited Units of a Fund, the Depository will credit or debit, on its book-entry registration and transfer system, the number of Limited Units so created, transferred or redeemed to the accounts of the appropriate DTC Participants. The accounts to be credited and charged shall be designated by the Managing Owner on behalf of each Fund and each Participant, in the case of a creation or redemption of Baskets. Ownership of beneficial interest in Limited Units will be limited to DTC Participants, Indirect Participants and persons holding interests through DTC Participants and Indirect Participants. Owners of beneficial interests in Limited Units (“Beneficial Owners”) will be shown on, and the transfer of beneficial ownership by Beneficial Owners will be effected only through, in the case of DTC Participants, records maintained by the Depository and, in the case of Indirect Participants and Beneficial Owners holding through a DTC Participant or an Indirect Participant, through those records or the records of the relevant DTC Participants. Beneficial Owners are expected to receive from or through the broker or bank that maintains the account through which the Beneficial Owner has purchased or sold Limited Units a written confirmation relating to their purchase or sale of Limited Units.

(e) Reliance on Procedures. So long as Cede & Co., as nominee of the Depository, is the registered owner of Limited Units, references herein to the registered or record owners of Limited Units shall mean Cede & Co. and shall not mean the Beneficial Owners of Limited Units. Beneficial Owners of Limited Units will not be entitled to have Limited Units registered in their names, will not receive or be entitled to receive physical delivery of certificates in definitive form and will not be considered the record or registered holder of Limited Units under this Trust Agreement. Accordingly, to exercise any rights of a holder of Limited Units under this Trust Agreement, a Beneficial Owner must rely on the procedures of the Depository and, if such Beneficial Owner is not a DTC Participant, on the procedures of each DTC Participant or Indirect Participant through which such Beneficial Owner holds its interests. The Trust and the Managing Owner understand that under existing industry practice, if the Trust or any Fund requests any action of a Beneficial Owner, or a Beneficial Owner desires to take any action that the Depository, as the record owner of all outstanding Limited Units of such Fund, is entitled to take, in the case of a Trustee request, the Depository will notify the DTC Participants regarding such request, such DTC Participants will in turn notify each Indirect Participant

20

holding Limited Units through it, with each successive Indirect Participant continuing to notify each person holding Limited Units through it until the request has reached the Beneficial Owner, and in the case of a request or authorization to act being sought or given by a Beneficial Owner, such request or authorization is given by the Beneficial Owner and relayed back to the Trust or such Fund through each Indirect Participant and DTC Participant through which the Beneficial Owner’s interest in the Limited Units is held.

(f) Communication between the Trust and the Beneficial Owners. As described above, the Trust and the Funds will recognize the Depository or its nominee as the owner of all Limited Units for all purposes except as expressly set forth in this Trust Agreement. Conveyance of all notices, statements and other communications to Beneficial Owners will be effected as follows. Pursuant to the Depository Agreement, the Depository is required to make available to the Funds upon request and for a fee to be charged to the Funds a listing of the Limited Unit holdings of each DTC Participant. The Trust or the Funds shall inquire of each such DTC Participant as to the number of Beneficial Owners holding Limited Units, directly or indirectly, through such DTC Participant. The Trust or the Funds shall provide each such DTC Participant with sufficient copies of such notice, statement or other communication, in such form, number and at such place as such DTC Participant may reasonably request, in order that such notice, statement or communication may be transmitted by such DTC Participant, directly or indirectly, to such Beneficial Owners. In addition, the Funds shall pay to each such DTC Participant an amount as reimbursement for the expenses attendant to such transmittal, all subject to applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

(g) Distributions. Distributions on Limited Units pursuant to Section 3.8 shall be made to the Depository or its nominee, Cede & Co., as the registered owner of all Limited Units. The Trust and the Managing Owner expect that the Depository or its nominee, upon receipt of any payment of distributions in respect of Limited Units, shall credit immediately DTC Participants’ accounts with payments in amounts proportionate to their respective beneficial interests in Limited Units as shown on the records of the Depository or its nominee. The Trust and the Managing Owner also expect that payments by DTC Participants to Indirect Participants and Beneficial Owners held through such DTC Participants and Indirect Participants will be governed by standing instructions and customary practices, as is now the case with securities held for the accounts of customers in bearer form or registered in a “street name,” and will be the responsibility of such DTC Participants and Indirect Participants. None of the Trust, the Funds, the Trustee or the Managing Owner will have any responsibility or liability for any aspects of the records relating to or notices to Beneficial Owners, or payments made on account of beneficial ownership interests in Limited Units, or for maintaining, supervising or reviewing any records relating to such beneficial ownership interests or for any other aspect of the relationship between the Depository and the DTC Participants or the relationship between such DTC Participants and the Indirect Participants and Beneficial Owners owning through such DTC Participants or Indirect Participants or between or among the Depository, any Beneficial Owner and any person by or through which such Beneficial Owner is considered to own Limited Units.

(h) Limitation of Liability. Each Global Security to be issued hereunder is executed and delivered solely on behalf of the applicable Fund by the Managing Owner, as Managing Owner, in the exercise of the powers and authority conferred and vested in it by this Trust Agreement. The representations, undertakings and agreements made on the part of the

21

Fund in each Global Security are made and intended not as personal representations, undertakings and agreements by the Managing Owner or the Trustee, but are made and intended for the purpose of binding only the Fund. Nothing in the Global Security shall be construed as creating any liability on the Managing Owner or the Trustee, individually or personally, to fulfill any representation, undertaking or agreement other than as provided in this Trust Agreement.

(i) Successor Depository. If a successor to The Depository Trust Company shall be employed as Depository hereunder, the Trust and the Managing Owner shall establish procedures acceptable to such successor with respect to the matters addressed in this Section 3.5.

SECTION 3.6. Assets. All consideration received by a Fund for the issue or sale of Units together with all of the applicable Trust Estate in which such consideration is invested or reinvested, all income, earnings, profits, and proceeds thereof, including any proceeds derived from the sale, exchange or liquidation of such assets and any funds or payments derived from any reinvestment of such proceeds in whatever form the same may be, shall irrevocably belong to that Fund for all purposes, subject only to the rights of creditors of such Fund and except as may otherwise be required by applicable tax laws, and shall be so recorded upon the books of account of the Trust. Separate and distinct records shall be maintained for each Fund and the assets associated with a Fund shall be held and accounted for in such separate and distinct records (directly or indirectly, including through a nominee or otherwise) separately from the other assets of the Trust, or any other Fund. In the event that there is any Trust Estate, or any income, earnings, profits, and proceeds thereof, funds, or payments which are not readily identifiable as belonging to any particular Fund, the Managing Owner shall allocate them among any one or more of the Funds established and designated from time to time in such manner and on such basis as the Managing Owner, in its sole discretion, deems fair and equitable. Each such allocation by the Managing Owner shall be conclusive and binding upon all Unitholders for all purposes.

SECTION 3.7. Liabilities of Funds.

(a) The Trust Estate belonging to each particular Fund shall be charged with the liabilities of the Trust in respect of that series and only that series; and all expenses, costs, charges, indemnities and reserves attributable to that Fund, and any general liabilities, expenses, costs, charges, indemnities or reserves of the Trust which are not readily identifiable as belonging to any particular Fund, shall be allocated and charged by the Managing Owner to and among any one or more of the series established and designated from time to time in such manner and on such basis as the Managing Owner in its sole discretion deems fair and equitable. Each allocation of liabilities, expenses, costs, charges and reserves by the Managing Owner shall be conclusive and binding upon all Unitholders for all purposes. The Managing Owner shall have full discretion, to the extent not inconsistent with applicable law, to determine which items shall be treated as income and which items as capital, and each such determination and allocation shall be conclusive and binding upon the Unitholders. Every written agreement, instrument or other undertaking made or issued by or on behalf of a particular series shall include a recitation limiting the obligation or claim represented thereby to that series and its assets.

22

(b) Without limitation of the foregoing provisions of this Section, but subject to the right of the Managing Owner in its discretion to allocate general liabilities, expenses, costs, charges or reserves as herein provided, the debts, liabilities, obligations and expenses incurred, contracted for or otherwise existing with respect to a particular series shall be enforceable against the assets of such series only and against the Managing Owner, and not against the assets of the Trust generally or of any other series. Notice of this limitation on interseries liabilities shall be set forth in the Certificate of Trust of the Trust (whether originally or by amendment) as filed or to be filed in the Office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware pursuant to the Delaware Trust Statute, and upon the giving of such notice in the Certificate of Trust, the statutory provisions of Section 3804 of the Delaware Trust Statute relating to limitations on interseries liabilities (and the statutory effect under Section 3804 of setting forth such notice in the Certificate of Trust) shall become applicable to the Trust and each Fund. Every Unit, note, bond, contract, instrument, certificate or other undertaking made or issued by or on behalf of a particular series shall include a recitation limiting the obligation on Units represented thereby to that series and its assets.

(i) Except as set forth below, any debts, liabilities, obligations, indebtedness, expenses, interests and claims of any nature and all kinds and descriptions, if any, of the Managing Owner and the Trustee (the “Subordinated Claims”) incurred, contracted for or otherwise existing, arising from, related to or in connection with all series, any combination of series or one particular series and their respective assets (the “Applicable Series”) and the assets of the Trust shall be expressly subordinate and junior in right of payment to any and all other Claims against the Trust and any series thereof, and any of their respective assets, which may arise as a matter of law or pursuant to any contract, provided, however, that the Claims of each of the Managing Owner and the Trustee (if any) against the Applicable Series shall not be considered Subordinated Claims with respect to enforcement against and distribution and repayment from the Applicable Series, the Applicable Series’ assets and the Managing Owner and its assets; and provided further that the valid Claims of either the Managing Owner or the Trustee, if any, against the Applicable Series shall be pari passu and equal in right of repayment and distribution with all other valid Claims against the Applicable Series;

(ii) the Managing Owner and the Trustee will not take, demand or receive from any Fund or the Trust or any of their respective assets (other than the Applicable Series, the Applicable Series’ assets and the Managing Owner and its assets) any payment for the Subordinated Claims;

(iii) The Claims of each of the Managing Owner and the Trustee with respect to the Applicable Series shall only be asserted and enforceable against the Applicable Series, the Applicable Series’ assets and the Managing Owner and its assets; and such Claims shall not be asserted or enforceable for any reason whatsoever against any other series, the Trust generally, or any of their respective assets;

(iv) If the Claims of the Managing Owner or the Trustee against the Applicable Series or the Trust are secured in whole or in part, each of the Managing Owner and the Trustee hereby waives (under section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. § 1111(b)) any right to have any deficiency Claims (which deficiency Claims may arise in the event such security is inadequate to satisfy such Claims) treated as unsecured Claims against the Trust or any series (other than the Applicable Series), as the case may be;

23

(v) In furtherance of the foregoing, if and to the extent that the Managing Owner and the Trustee receive monies in connection with the Subordinated Claims from a Fund or the Trust (or their respective assets), other than the Applicable Series, the Applicable Series’ assets and the Managing Owner and its assets, the Managing Owner and the Trustee shall be deemed to hold such monies in trust and shall promptly remit such monies to the Fund or the Trust that paid such amounts for distribution by the Fund or the Trust in accordance with the terms hereof; and

(vi) The foregoing Consent shall apply at all times notwithstanding that the Claims are satisfied, and notwithstanding that the agreements in respect of such Claims are terminated, rescinded or canceled.

(c) Any agreement entered into by the Trust, any Fund, or the Managing Owner, on behalf of the Trust generally or any Fund, including, without limitation, the Purchase Order Subscription Agreement entered into with each Limited Owner, will include language substantially similar to the language set forth in Section 3.7(b).

SECTION 3.8. Distributions.

(a) Distributions on Units may be paid with such frequency as the Managing Owner may determine, which may be daily or otherwise, to the Unitholders, from such of the income and capital gains, accrued or realized, from each Trust Estate, after providing for actual and accrued liabilities. All distributions on Units thereof shall be distributed pro rata to the Unitholders in proportion to the total outstanding Units held by such Unitholders at the date and time of record established for the payment of such distribution and in accordance with Section 3.5(g). Such distributions may be made in cash or Units as determined by the Managing Owner or pursuant to any program that the Managing Owner may have in effect at the time for the election by each Unitholder of the mode of the making of such distribution to that Unitholder.

(b) The Units shall represent units of beneficial interest in each applicable Trust Estate. Each Unitholder shall be entitled to receive its pro rata share of distributions of income and capital gains in accordance with Section 3.8(a).

SECTION 3.9. Voting Rights. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, on each matter submitted to a vote of the Unitholders, each Unitholder shall be entitled to a proportionate vote based upon the product of the Net Asset Value per Unit of a Fund multiplied by the number of Units, or fraction thereof, standing in its name on the books of such Fund in accordance with Section 3.5(g).

SECTION 3.10. Equality. Except as provided herein, all Units of a Fund shall represent an equal proportionate beneficial interest in the assets of the Fund subject to the liabilities of the Fund, and each Unit shall be equal to each other Unit. The Managing Owner may from time to time divide or combine the Units into a greater or lesser number of Units without thereby changing the proportionate beneficial interest in the assets of the Funds or in any way affecting the rights of Unitholders.

No material change related to brokerage fees shall be made except upon sixty (60) Business Days’ prior notice to the Limited Owners, which notice shall include a description of the Limited Owners’ voting rights as set forth in Section 8.2 hereof and a description of the Limited Owners’ redemption rights as set forth in Section 7.1 hereof;

Subject to the foregoing, neither the Managing Owner nor any other Covered Person shall be personally liable for the return or repayment of all or any portion of the capital or profits of any Limited Owner or assignee thereof, it being expressly agreed that any such return of capital or profits made pursuant to this Trust Agreement shall be made solely from the assets of the applicable Fund without any rights of contribution from the Managing Owner or any other Covered Person. A Covered Person shall not be liable for the conduct or misconduct of any Administrator or other delegatee selected by the Managing Owner with reasonable care.

The provisions of this Trust Agreement, to the extent that they restrict the duties and liabilities of the Managing Owner otherwise existing at law or in equity are agreed by the parties hereto to replace such other duties and liabilities of the Managing Owner. Any material changes in the Trust’s basic investment policies or structure shall occur only upon the written approval or affirmative vote of Limited Owners holding Units equal to at least a majority (over 50%) of the Net Asset Value of a Fund (excluding Units held by the Managing Owner and its Affiliates) affected by the change pursuant to Section 11.1(a) below.

29

(b) Unless otherwise expressly provided herein:

(i) whenever a conflict of interest exists or arises between the Managing Owner or any of its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Trust or any Unitholder or any other Person, on the other hand; or

(ii) whenever this Trust Agreement or any other agreement contemplated herein or therein provides that the Managing Owner shall act in a manner that is, or provides terms that are, fair and reasonable to the Trust, any Unitholder or any other Person,

the Managing Owner shall resolve such conflict of interest, take such action or provide such terms, considering in each case the relative interest of each party (including its own interest) to such conflict, agreement, transaction or situation and the benefits and burdens relating to such interests, any customary or accepted industry practices, and any applicable generally accepted accounting practices or principles. In the absence of bad faith by the Managing Owner, the resolution, action or terms so made, taken or provided by the Managing Owner shall not constitute a breach of this Trust Agreement or any other agreement contemplated herein or of any duty or obligation of the Managing Owner at law or in equity or otherwise.

(c) The Managing Owner and any Affiliate of the Managing Owner may engage in or possess an interest in other profit-seeking or business ventures of any nature or description, independently or with others, whether or not such ventures are competitive with the Trust and the doctrine of corporate opportunity, or any analogous doctrine, shall not apply to the Managing Owner. If the Managing Owner acquires knowledge of a potential transaction, agreement, arrangement or other matter that may be an opportunity for the Trust, it shall have no duty to communicate or offer such opportunity to the Trust, and the Managing Owner shall not be liable to the Trust or to the Unitholders for breach of any fiduciary or other duty by reason of the fact that the Managing Owner pursues or acquires for, or directs such opportunity to another Person or does not communicate such opportunity or information to the Trust. Neither the Trust nor any Unitholder shall have any rights or obligations by virtue of this Trust Agreement or the trust relationship created hereby in or to such independent ventures or the income or profits or losses derived therefrom, and the pursuit of such ventures, even if competitive with the activities of the Trust, shall not be deemed wrongful or improper. Except to the extent expressly provided herein, the Managing Owner may engage or be interested in any financial or other transaction with the Trust, the Unitholders or any Affiliate of the Trust or the Unitholders.

SECTION 4.7. Indemnification of the Managing Owner.

(a) The Managing Owner shall be indemnified by the Trust (or, in furtherance of Section 3.7, any Fund separately to the extent the matter in question relates to a single Fund or is otherwise disproportionate) against any losses, judgments, liabilities, expenses and amounts paid in settlement of any claims sustained by it in connection with its activities for the Trust, provided that (i) the Managing Owner was acting on behalf of or performing services for the Trust and has determined, in good faith, that such course of conduct was in the best interests of the Trust and such liability or loss was not the result of negligence, misconduct, or a breach of this Trust Agreement on the part of the Managing Owner and (ii) any such indemnification will

30

only be recoverable from the applicable Trust Estate or Trust Estates. All rights to indemnification permitted herein and payment of associated expenses shall not be affected by the dissolution or other cessation to exist of the Managing Owner, or the withdrawal, adjudication of bankruptcy or insolvency of the Managing Owner, or the filing of a voluntary or involuntary petition in bankruptcy under Title 11 of the Code by or against the Managing Owner.

(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 4.7(a) above, the Managing Owner and any Person acting as broker-dealer for the Trust or any Fund shall not be indemnified for any losses, liabilities or expenses arising from or out of an alleged violation of U.S. federal or state securities laws unless (i) there has been a successful adjudication on the merits of each count involving alleged securities law violations as to the particular indemnitee and the court approves the indemnification of such expenses (including, without limitation, litigation costs), (ii) such claims have been dismissed with prejudice on the merits by a court of competent jurisdiction as to the particular indemnitee and the court approves the indemnification of such expenses (including, without limitation, litigation costs) or (iii) a court of competent jurisdiction approves a settlement of the claims against a particular indemnitee and finds that indemnification of the settlement and related costs should be made.

(c) The Trust and the Funds shall not incur the cost of that portion of any insurance which insures any party against any liability, the indemnification of which is herein prohibited.

(d) Expenses incurred in defending a threatened or pending civil, administrative or criminal action, suit or proceeding against the Managing Owner shall be paid by the Trust in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding, if (i) the legal action relates to the performance of duties or services by the Managing Owner on behalf of the Trust; (ii) the legal action is initiated by a third party who is not a Limited Owner or the legal action is initiated by a Limited Owner and a court of competent jurisdiction specifically approves such advance; and (iii) the Managing Owner undertakes to repay the advanced funds with interest to the Trust in cases in which it is not entitled to indemnification under this Section 4.7.

(e) The term “Managing Owner” as used in this Section 4.7 shall include, in addition to the Managing Owner, any other Covered Person performing services on behalf of the Trust and acting within the scope of the Managing Owner’s authority as set forth in this Trust Agreement.

(f) In the event the Trust is made a party to any claim, dispute, demand or litigation or otherwise incurs any loss, liability, damage, cost or expense as a result of or in connection with any Limited Owner’s (or assignee’s) obligations or liabilities unrelated to Trust business, such Limited Owner (or assignees cumulatively) shall indemnify, defend, hold harmless, and reimburse the Trust for all such loss, liability, damage, cost and expense incurred, including attorneys’ and accountants’ fees.

(g) The payment of any amount pursuant to this Section shall be subject to Section 3.7 with respect to the allocation of liabilities and other amount, as appropriate, among the Funds.

31

Each Fund shall pay all its extraordinary fees and expenses (as defined in the next sentence), if any, of such Fund generally, if any, as determined by the Managing Owner. Extraordinary fees and expenses shall include, but not be limited to, fees and expenses which are non-recurring and unusual in nature, such as legal claims and liabilities and litigation costs or indemnification or other unanticipated expenses. Extraordinary fees and expenses shall also include material expenses which are not currently anticipated obligations of each Fund or of managed futures trusts in general. Routine operational, administrative and other ordinary expenses will not be deemed extraordinary fees and expenses.

(d) The Managing Owner or any Affiliate of the Managing Owner may only be reimbursed for the actual cost to the Managing Owner or such Affiliate of any expenses which it advances on behalf of a Fund for which payment a Fund is responsible. In addition, payment to the Managing Owner or such Affiliate for indirect expenses incurred in performing services for a Fund in its capacity as the managing owner of the Trust, such as salaries and fringe benefits of officers and directors, rent or depreciation, utilities and other administrative items generally falling within the category of the Managing Owner’s “overhead,” is prohibited.

(e) All general expenses of the Trust will be allocated among the Funds as determined by the Managing Owner in its sole and absolute discretion.

If the withdrawing Managing Owner is the last remaining Managing Owner, Limited Owners holding Units equal to at least a majority (over 50%) of each Fund’s aggregate Net Asset Value (excluding Units held by the Managing Owner) may vote to elect and appoint, effective as of a date on or prior to the withdrawal, a successor Managing Owner who shall carry on the business of the Trust. In the event of its removal or withdrawal, the Managing Owner shall be entitled to a redemption of its Units at their respective Net Asset Value. If the Managing Owner withdraws and a successor Managing Owner is named, the withdrawing Managing Owner shall pay all expenses as a result of its withdrawal.

SECTION 4.12. Authorization of Registration Statements. Each Limited Owner (or any permitted assignee thereof) hereby agrees that the Trust, the Managing Owner and the Trustee are authorized to execute, deliver and perform the agreements, acts, transactions and matters contemplated hereby or described in or contemplated by the Registration Statements on behalf of the Trust without any further act, approval or vote of the Limited Owners of the Funds, notwithstanding any other provision of this Trust Agreement, the Delaware Trust Statute or any applicable law, rule or regulation.

SECTION 4.13. Litigation. The Managing Owner is hereby authorized to prosecute, defend, settle or compromise actions or claims at law or in equity as may be necessary or proper to enforce or protect the Trust’s interests. The Managing Owner shall satisfy any judgment, decree or decision of any court, board or authority having jurisdiction or any settlement of any suit or claim prior to judgment or final decision thereon, first, out of any insurance proceeds available therefor, next, out of the Funds’ assets on a pro rata basis and, thereafter, out of the assets (to the extent that it is permitted to do so under the various other provisions of this Trust Agreement) of the Managing Owner.

TRANSFERS OF UNITS

SECTION 5.1. General Prohibition. To the fullest extent permitted by law, a Limited Owner may not sell, assign, transfer or otherwise dispose of, or pledge, hypothecate or in any manner encumber any or all of his Units or any part of his right, title and interest in the capital or profits in any Fund except as permitted in this Article V and any act in violation of this Article V shall not be binding upon or recognized by the Trust (regardless of whether the Managing Owner shall have knowledge thereof), unless approved in writing by the Managing Owner.

SECTION 5.2. Transfer of Managing Owner’s General Units.

(a) Upon an Event of Withdrawal (as defined in Section 13.1), the Managing Owner’s General Units shall be purchased by the Trust for a purchase price in cash equal to the Net Asset Value thereof. The Managing Owner will not cease to be a Managing Owner of the Trust merely upon the occurrence of its making an assignment for the benefit of creditors, filing a voluntary petition in bankruptcy, filing a petition or answer seeking for itself any reorganization, arrangement, composition, readjustment, liquidation, dissolution or similar relief under any statute, law or regulation, filing an answer or other pleading admitting or failing to contest material allegations of a petition filed against it in any proceeding of this nature or seeking, consenting to or acquiescing in the appointment of a trustee, receiver or liquidator for itself or of all or any substantial part of its properties.

(b) To the full extent permitted by law, and on sixty (60) days’ prior written notice to the Limited Owners, of their right to vote thereon, if the transaction is other than with an Affiliated entity, nothing in this Trust Agreement shall be deemed to prevent the merger of the Managing Owner with another corporation or other entity, the reorganization of the Managing Owner into or with any other corporation or other entity, the transfer of all the capital stock of the Managing Owner or the assumption of the rights, duties and liabilities of the Managing Owner by, in the case of a merger, reorganization or consolidation, the surviving corporation or other entity by operation of law or the transfer of the Managing Owner’s Units to an Affiliate of the Managing Owner. Without limiting the foregoing, none of the transactions referenced in the preceding sentence shall be deemed to be a voluntary withdrawal for purposes of Section 4.11 or an Event of Withdrawal or assignment of Units for purposes of Sections 5.2(a) or 5.2(c).

34

(c) Upon assignment of all of its Units, the Managing Owner shall not cease (x) to be a Managing Owner of the Trust, or (y) to have the power to exercise any rights or powers as a Managing Owner, or (z) to have liability for the obligations of the Trust under Section 1.7 hereof, until an additional Managing Owner, who shall carry on the business of the Trust, has been admitted to the Trust.

ARTICLE VI

CAPITAL ACCOUNTS; ALLOCATIONS

SECTION 6.1. Capital Accounts. The Trust shall maintain for each Unitholder (which includes beneficial owners of Units where information regarding the identity of such owner has been furnished to the Fund in accordance with section 6031(c) of the Code or any other method acceptable to the Managing Owner in its sole discretion) owning a Unit a separate Capital Account with respect to such Unit in accordance with the rules of Treasury Regulation section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv). The initial balance of each Unitholder’s book capital account shall be the amount of its initial Capital Contribution. Such Capital Account shall be (i) increased by the amount of all Capital Contributions made with respect to the respective Unit and all items of income and gain with respect to each Fund computed and allocated to the Unitholder’s Units in accordance with this Trust Agreement and (ii) decreased by the amount of cash distributions made with respect to such Unit and all items of deduction and loss with respect to each Fund computed and allocated in accordance with this Trust Agreement.

(a) Consistent with the provisions of Treasury Regulation section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f), upon an issuance of additional Units with respect to a Fund for cash, the Capital Accounts of all Unitholders with respect to such Fund shall, immediately prior to such issuances, be adjusted (consistent with the provisions hereof) upwards or downwards to reflect any Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to each Fund property, as if such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss had been recognized upon an actual sale of each such property, immediately prior to such issuance, and had been allocated to its Unitholders at such time pursuant to Section 6.3.

(b) In accordance with Treasury Regulation section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f), immediately prior to the distribution of cash in redemption of all or a portion of a Unitholder’s Units, the capital accounts of all Unitholders with respect to a Fund shall, immediately prior to any such distribution, be adjusted (consistent with the provisions hereof) upward or downward to reflect any Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to each Fund property, as if such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss had been recognized upon an actual sale of each property, immediately prior to such distribution, and had been allocated to the Unitholders at such time pursuant to Section 6.3.

35

SECTION 6.2. Periodic Closing of Books. Within forty-five (45) days after the end of each calendar month (or such other period as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole discretion) or such shorter period as required for the final closing of the books for the taxable year, each Fund shall conduct an interim closing of the books of the Fund as of the end of the last day of that calendar month (or such other period as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole discretion). On the basis of the closing of the books for each calendar month (or such other period as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole discretions), each Fund shall determine the amount of Profit and Loss of the Fund attributable to that calendar month (or such other period as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole discretion). Fund Profits and Losses shall be determined in accordance with the accounting methods followed by the Fund for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

SECTION 6.3. Periodic Allocations. All allocations to Unitholders of items included within a Fund’s Profits and Losses attributable to each calendar month (or such other periods as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole discretion) shall be allocated solely among the Unitholders recognized as Unitholders as of the close of the last trading day of the preceding month (or the last trading day of such other period as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole discretion) as follows:

(a) For purposes of maintaining each Fund’s Capital Accounts and in determining the rights of the Unitholders among themselves, except as otherwise provided in this Article VI, each item of income, gain, loss and deduction shall be allocated among Unitholders in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests.

(b) Any item of loss or deduction otherwise allocated to the Managing Owner pursuant to Section 6.3 which is in excess of such Managing Owner’s positive Adjusted Capital Account balance (following adjustment to reflect the allocation of all other items for such period) shall instead be allocated to the other Unitholders in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests to the extent such item of loss or deduction exceeds such Managing Owner’s Adjusted Capital Account balance; provided that the allocation of any such item to such other Unitholders shall only be made hereunder to the extent the allocation would not result in or increase a negative balance in the Adjusted Capital Account of such other Unitholders. If such an allocation occurs, items of income or gain that would otherwise be allocated to the Managing Owner equal to the amount of such allocated loss or deduction will be allocated to the other Unitholders in accordance with their Percentage Interests as quickly as possible.

(c) If any Unitholder unexpectedly receives any adjustments, allocations or distributions described in Treasury Regulation sections 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), (5) or (6), items of Fund income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Unitholder in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate a deficit in its Adjusted Capital Account created by such adjustments, allocations or distributions as quickly as possible. This Section 6.3(c) is intended to constitute a “qualified income offset” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d).

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Trust Agreement, upon or prior to the issuance of additional Units, the Managing Owner shall have the sole and complete discretion, without the approval of any other Unitholder, to amend any provision of this Article VI in any manner, as is necessary, appropriate or advisable to comply with any current or future provisions of the Code or the Treasury Regulations or to implement the terms and conditions of any Units.

36

SECTION 6.4. Code Section 754 Adjustments. To the extent an adjustment to the tax basis of any Fund asset pursuant to Section 743(b) or 743(c) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts, the amount of such adjustment to the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain (if the adjustment increases the basis of the asset) or loss (if the adjustment decreases such basis) and such item of gain or loss shall be specially allocated to the Unitholders in a manner consistent with the manner in which their Capital Accounts are required to be adjusted pursuant to such regulation. For purposes of computing the adjustments under section 743(b) of the Code, a Fund is authorized (but not required), in the Managing Owner’s sole and complete discretion, to adopt a convention whereby the price paid by a transferee of Units will be deemed to be the weighted average closing price of the Units of the particular Fund on the Exchange during the calendar month in which such transfer is deemed to occur pursuant to Section 5.3 without regard to the actual price paid by the transferee (or any other convention as the Managing Owner may determine in its sole and complete discretion).

SECTION 6.5. Allocation of Profit and Loss for U.S. Federal Income Tax Purposes.

(a) Except as otherwise provided, each item of income, gain, loss, deduction and credit of each Fund shall be allocated among the Unitholders in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests.

(b) In an attempt to eliminate Book-Tax Disparities attributable to Adjusted Property, items of income, gain, and loss will be allocated for federal income tax purposes among the Unitholders of each Fund as follows:

(i) Items attributable to an Adjusted Property will be allocated among the Unitholders of each Fund in a manner consistent with the principles of section 704(c) of the Code to take into account the Unrealized Gain or Loss attributable to the property and the allocations thereof pursuant to Sections 6.3(a) and (b).

(ii) Any items of income, gain, loss or deduction otherwise allocable under this Section 6.5 shall be subject to allocation by the Managing Owner in a manner designed to eliminate, to the maximum extent possible, Book-Tax Disparities in an Adjusted Property otherwise resulting from the application of the ceiling limitation under section 704(c) principles to the allocations provided under this Section.

(iii) Subject to this Section 6.5(b), any items of income, gain, loss or deduction otherwise allocable to the Managing Owner pursuant to Section 6.3(a) that constitutes the tax corollary of an item of “book” income, gain, loss or deduction that has been allocated to the other Unitholders of a Fund pursuant to Section 6.3(b) shall be allocated to such other Unitholders in the same manner and to the same extent provided in this Section 6.5(b).

37

(iv) If any Unitholder unexpectedly receives any adjustments, allocations or distributions described in Treasury Regulation section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d), items of income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Unitholder in an amount and manner consistent with the allocations of income and gain pursuant to Section 6.3(c).

(c) The allocation of income and loss (and items thereof) for U.S. federal income tax purposes set forth in this Section 6.5 is intended to allocate taxable income and loss among Unitholders generally in the ratio and to the extent that net profit and net loss shall be allocated to such Unitholders under Section 6.3 so as to eliminate, to the extent possible, any disparity between a Unitholder’s book capital account and his tax capital account, consistent with the principles set forth in Sections 704(b) and (c)(2) of the Code.

(d) Notwithstanding this Section 6.5, if after taking into account any distributions to be made with respect to such Unit for the relevant period pursuant to Section 6.7 herein, any allocation would produce a deficit in the book capital account of a Unit, the portion of such allocation that would create such a deficit shall instead be allocated pro rata to the book capital accounts of all the remaining Unitholders in such Fund (subject to the same limitation).

SECTION 6.6. Effect of Section 754 Election. All items of income, gain, loss, deduction and credit recognized by a Fund for U.S. federal income tax purposes and allocated to Unitholders in such Fund in accordance with the provisions of this Trust Agreement shall be determined without regard to any election under section 754 of the Code which may be made by such Fund; provided, however, that such allocations, once made, shall be adjusted as necessary or appropriate to take into account those adjustments permitted or required by sections 734 or 743 of the Code.

SECTION 6.7. Admissions of Unitholders; Transfers. For purposes of this Article VI, items of each Fund’s income, gain, loss, deduction and credit attributable to a transferred Unit shall, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, be determined on an annual basis and prorated on a monthly basis (or other basis, as required or permitted by section 706 of the Code) and shall be allocated to such Unitholders who own the Units as of the close of the Exchange on the last day of the month in which the transfer is recognized by the Trust; provided that, gain or loss on the sale or other disposition of all or a substantial portion of the assets of the Trust shall be allocated to the Unitholders who own Units as of the close of the Exchange on the last day of the month in which such gain or loss is recognized for federal income tax purposes. The Managing Owner may revise, alter or otherwise modify such methods of determination and allocation as it determines necessary, to the extent permitted by section 706 of the Code and the regulations or rulings promulgated thereunder.

SECTION 6.8. Allocation of Distributions. Initially, distributions shall be made by the Managing Owner, and the Managing Owner shall have sole discretion in determining the amount and frequency of distributions, other than redemptions, with respect to the Units; provided, however, that no distribution shall be made that violates the Delaware Trust Statute. The aggregate distributions made in a Fiscal Year (other than distributions on termination, which shall be allocated in the manner described in Article XIII) shall be allocated among the holders of record of Units in the ratio in which the number of Units held of record by each of them bears to the number of Units held of record by all of the Unitholders of such Fund as of the record date of such distribution; provided, further, however, that any distribution made in respect of a Unit shall not exceed the book capital account for such Unit.

38

SECTION 6.9. Liability for State and Local and Other Taxes. In the event that the Trust or a Fund shall be separately subject to taxation by any state or local or by any foreign taxing authority, the Trust or such Fund shall be obligated to pay such taxes to such jurisdiction. In the event that the Trust or any Fund shall be required to make payments to any Federal, state or local or any foreign taxing authority in respect of any Unitholder’s allocable share of income, the amount of such taxes shall be considered a loan by the Trust or such Fund to such Unitholder, and such Unitholder shall be liable for, and shall pay to the Trust or such Fund, any taxes so required to be withheld and paid over by the Trust or such Fund within ten (10) days after the Managing Owner’s request therefor. Such Unitholder shall also be liable for (and the Managing Owner shall be entitled to redeem additional Units of the foreign Unitholder as necessary to satisfy) interest on the amount of taxes paid over by the Trust or the Fund to the IRS or other taxing authority, from the date of the Managing Owner’s request for payment to the date of payment or the redemption, as the case may be, at the rate of two percent (2%) over the prime rate charged from time to time by Citibank, N.A. The amount, if any, payable by the Trust or a Fund to the Unitholder in respect of its Units so redeemed, or in respect of any other actual distribution by the Trust or any Fund to such Unitholder, shall be reduced by any obligations owed to the Trust or any Fund by the Unitholder, including, without limitation, the amount of any taxes required to be paid over by the Trust or any Fund to the IRS or other taxing authority and interest thereon as aforesaid. Amounts, if any, deducted by the Trust or any Fund from any actual distribution or redemption payment to such Unitholder shall be treated as an actual distribution to such Unitholder for all purposes of this Trust Agreement.

SECTION 6.10. Consent to Methods. The methods set forth in this Article VI by which Distributions are made and items of Profit and Loss are allocated are hereby expressly consented to by each Unitholder as an express condition to becoming a Unitholder.

ARTICLE VII

REDEMPTIONS

SECTION 7.1. Redemption of Redemption Baskets. The following procedures, as supplemented by the more detailed procedures specified in the attachment to the applicable Participant Agreement, which may be amended from time to time in accordance with the provisions of such Participant Agreement (and any such amendment will not constitute an amendment of this Trust Agreement), will govern the Trust and the Funds with respect to the redemption of Redemption Baskets.

(a) On any Business Day, a Participant with respect to which a Participant Agreement is in full force and effect (as reflected on the list maintained by the Managing Owner pursuant to Section 3.4(a)(i)) may redeem one or more Redemption Baskets standing to the credit of the Participant on the records of the Depository by delivering a request for redemption to the Managing Owner (such request, a “Redemption Order”) in the manner specified in the procedures specified in the attachment to the Participant Agreement, as amended from time to time in accordance with the provisions of the Participant Agreement (and any such amendment will not constitute an amendment of this Trust Agreement).

39

(b) To be effective, a Redemption Order must be submitted on a Business Day by the Order Cut-Off Time in form satisfactory to the Managing Owner (the Business Day on which the Redemption Order is so submitted, the “Redemption Order Date”). The Managing Owner shall reject any Redemption Order the fulfillment of which its counsel advises may be illegal under applicable laws and regulations, and the Managing Owner shall have no liability to any person for rejecting a Redemption Order in such circumstances.

(c) Subject to deduction of any tax or other governmental charges due thereon, the redemption distribution (“Redemption Distribution”) shall consist of cash in an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the number of Redemption Baskets set forth in the relevant Redemption Order by (ii) the Net Asset Value Per Basket of a Fund as of the closing time of the Exchange or the last to close of the exchanges on which any of the Index Commodities is traded, whichever is later, on the Redemption Order Date.

(d) By noon, New York time, on the Business Day immediately following the Redemption Order Date (the “Redemption Settlement Time”), if the Managing Owner’s account at the Depository has by noon, New York time, on such day been credited with the Redemption Baskets being tendered for redemption and the Managing Owner has by such time received the Transaction Fee, the Managing Owner shall deliver the Redemption Distribution through the Depository to the account of the Participant as recorded on the book entry system of the Depository. If by such Redemption Settlement Time the Managing Owner has not received from a redeeming Participant all Redemption Baskets comprising the Redemption Order, the Managing Owner will (i) settle the Redemption Order to the extent of whole Redemption Baskets received from the Participant and (ii) keep the redeeming Participant’s Redemption Order open until noon, New York time, on the first Business Day following the Redemption Settlement Date as to the balance of the Redemption Order (such balance, the “Suspended Redemption Order”). If the Redemption Basket(s) comprising the Suspended Redemption Order are credited to the Managing Owner’s account at the Depository by noon, New York time, on such following Business Day, the Redemption Distribution with respect to the Suspended Redemption Order shall be paid in the manner provided in the second preceding sentence. If by such Redemption Settlement Time the Managing Owner has not received from the redeeming Participant all Redemption Baskets comprising the Suspended Redemption Order, the Managing Owner will settle the Suspended Redemption Order to the extent of whole Redemption Baskets then received and any balance of the Suspended Redemption will be cancelled. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when and under such conditions as the Managing Owner may from time to time determine, the Managing Owner shall be authorized to deliver the Redemption Distribution notwithstanding that a Redemption Basket has not been credited to the Trust’s or the applicable Fund’s account at the Depository if the Participant has collateralized its obligation to deliver the Redemption Basket on such terms as the Managing Owner may, in its sole discretion, from time to time agree.

(e) The Managing Owner may, in its discretion, suspend the right of redemption, or postpone the Redemption Settlement Date, (i) for any period during which the Exchange or any other applicable exchange is closed other than customary weekend or holiday

40

closings, or trading is suspended or restricted; (ii) for any period during which an emergency exists as a result of which delivery, disposal or evaluation of a Fund’s assets is not reasonably practicable; or (iii) for such other period as the Managing Owner determines to be necessary for the protection of Beneficial Owners. The Managing Owner is not liable to any person or in any way for any loss or damages that may result from any such suspension or postponement.

(f) Redemption Baskets effectively redeemed pursuant to the provisions of this Section 7.1 shall be cancelled by the Trust or the applicable Fund in accordance with the Depository’s procedures.

SECTION 7.2. Other Redemption Procedures. The Managing Owner from time to time may, but shall have no obligation to, establish procedures with respect to redemption of Limited Units in lot sizes smaller than the Redemption Basket and permitting the Redemption Distribution to be in a form, and delivered in a manner, other than that specified in Section 7.1.

ARTICLE VIII

THE LIMITED OWNERS

SECTION 8.1. No Management or Control; Limited Liability; Exercise of Rights through DTC. The Limited Owners shall not participate in the management or control of the Trust’s or the applicable Fund’s business nor shall they transact any business for the Trust or any Fund or have the power to sign for or bind the Trust or any Fund, said power being vested solely and exclusively in the Managing Owner. Except as provided in Section 8.3 hereof, no Limited Owner shall be bound by, or be personally liable for, the expenses, liabilities or obligations of the Trust or any Fund in excess of its Capital Contribution plus its share of any Fund Trust Estate in which such Limited Owner owns a Limited Unit and profits remaining, if any. Except as provided in Section 8.3 hereof, each Limited Unit owned by a Limited Owner shall be fully paid and no assessment shall be made against any Limited Owner. No salary shall be paid to any Limited Owner in its capacity as a Limited Owner, nor shall any Limited Owner have a drawing account or earn interest on its Capital Contribution. By the purchase and acceptance or other lawful delivery and acceptance of Limited Units, each Beneficial Owner shall be deemed to be a Limited Owner and beneficiary of the applicable Fund and vested with beneficial undivided interest in such Fund to the extent of the Limited Units owned beneficially by such Beneficial Owner, subject to the terms and conditions of this Trust Agreement. The rights of Beneficial Owners under this Trust Agreement must be exercised by DTC Participants, or Indirect Participants, as applicable, acting on their behalf in accordance with the rules and procedures of the Depository, as provided in Section 3.5.

SECTION 8.2. Rights and Duties. The Limited Owners shall have the following rights, powers, privileges, duties and liabilities:

(a) The Limited Owners shall have the right to obtain from the Managing Owner information on all things affecting the Trust or the applicable Fund, provided that such is for a purpose reasonably related to the Limited Owner’s interest as a beneficial owner of the Trust or the applicable Fund, including, without limitation, such reports as are set forth in Article IX and the list of Participants contemplated by Section 3.4(a)(i). In the event that the

41

Managing Owner neglects or refuses to produce or mail to a Limited Owner a copy of the list of Participants contemplated by Section 3.4(a)(i), the Managing Owner shall be liable to such Limited Owner for the costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by such Limited Owner to compel the production of such information, and for any actual damages suffered by such Limited Owner as a result of such refusal or neglect; provided, however, it shall be a defense of the Managing Owner that the actual purpose of the Limited Owner’s request for such information was not reasonably related to the Limited Owner’s interest as a beneficial owner in a Fund (e.g., to secure such information in order to sell it, or to use the same for a commercial purpose unrelated to the participation of such Limited Owner in the Fund). The foregoing rights are in addition to, and do not limit, other remedies available to Limited Owners under U.S. federal or state law.

(b) The Limited Owners shall receive the share of the distributions provided for in this Trust Agreement in the manner and at the times provided for in this Trust Agreement.

(c) Except for the Limited Owners’ redemption rights set forth in Article VII hereof, the Limited Owners shall have the right to demand the return of their Capital Account only upon the dissolution and winding up of the applicable Fund or the Trust and only to the extent of funds available therefor. In no event shall a Limited Owner be entitled to demand or receive property other than cash. Except with respect to class differences, no Limited Owner shall have priority over any other Limited Owner either as to the return of capital or as to profits, losses or distributions. The Limited Owner shall not have any right to bring an action for partition against the Trust or a Fund.

(d) Limited Owners holding Units representing at least a majority (over 50%) in Net Asset Value of each affected Fund (not including Units held by the Managing Owner and its Affiliates), voting separately as a class, may vote to (i) continue the Trust as provided in Section 13.1(a), (ii) remove the Managing Owner on reasonable prior written notice to the Managing Owner, (iii) elect and appoint one or more additional Managing Owners, or consent to such matters as are set forth in Section 5.2(b), (iv) approve a material change in the trading policies, as set forth in the Prospectus, which change shall not be effective without the prior written approval of such majority, (v) approve the termination of any agreement entered into between the Trust and the Managing Owner or any Affiliate of the Managing Owner for any reason, without penalty, (vi) approve amendments to this Trust Agreement as set forth in Section 11.1 hereof, and (vii) terminate the Trust as provided in Section 13.1(e), and in the case of (iii), (iv) and (v) in each instance on 60 days’ prior written notice.

Except as set forth above, the Limited Owners shall have no voting or other rights with respect to the Trust or any Fund.

SECTION 8.3. Limitation on Liability.

(a) Except as provided in Sections 4.7(f), and 6.2 hereof, and as otherwise provided under Delaware law, the Limited Owners shall be entitled to the same limitation of personal liability extended to stockholders of private corporations for profit organized under the general corporation law of Delaware and no Limited Owner shall be liable for claims against, or debts of the Trust or the applicable Fund in excess of its Capital Contribution and his share of the

42

applicable Fund Trust Estate and undistributed profits, except in the event that the liability is founded upon misstatements or omissions contained in such Limited Owner’s Participant Agreement delivered in connection with his purchase of Units. In addition, and subject to the exceptions set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Trust or the applicable Fund shall not make a claim against a Limited Owner with respect to amounts distributed to such Limited Owner or amounts received by such Limited Owner upon redemption unless, under Delaware law, such Limited Owner is liable to repay such amount.

(b) The Trust or the applicable Fund shall indemnify to the full extent permitted by law and the other provisions of this Trust Agreement, and to the extent of the applicable Fund Trust Estate, each Limited Owner (excluding the Managing Owner to the extent of its ownership of any Limited Units) against any claims of liability asserted against such Limited Owner solely because he is a beneficial owner of one or more Units as a Limited Owner (other than for taxes for which such Limited Owner is liable under Section 6.2 hereof).

(c) Every written note, bond, contract, instrument, certificate or undertaking made or issued by the Managing Owner shall give notice to the effect that the same was executed or made by or on behalf of the Trust or the applicable Fund and that the obligations of such instrument are not binding upon the Limited Owners individually but are binding only upon the assets and property of the applicable Fund, and no resort shall be had to the Limited Owners’ personal property for satisfaction of any obligation or claim thereunder, and appropriate references may be made to this Trust Agreement and may contain any further recital which the Managing Owner deems appropriate, but the omission thereof shall not operate to bind the Limited Owners individually or otherwise invalidate any such note, bond, contract, instrument, certificate or undertaking. Nothing contained in this Section 8.3 shall diminish the limitation on the liability of the Trust to the extent set forth in Sections 3.6 and 3.7 hereof.

ARTICLE IX

AMENDMENT OF TRUST AGREEMENT; MEETINGS

SECTION 11.1. Amendments to this Trust Agreement.

(a) Amendments to this Trust Agreement may be proposed by the Managing Owner or by Limited Owners holding Units equal to at least 10% of the Net Asset Value of each Fund, unless the proposed amendment affects only certain series, in which case such amendment may be proposed by Limited Owners holding Units equal to at least ten percent (10%) of Net Asset Value of each affected series. Following such proposal, the Managing Owner shall submit to the Limited Owners of each affected series a verbatim statement of any proposed amendment, and statements concerning the legality of such amendment and the effect of such amendment on the limited liability of the Limited Owners. The Managing Owner shall include in any such submission its recommendations as to the proposed amendment. The amendment shall become effective only upon the written approval or affirmative vote of Limited Owners holding Units (excluding Units held by the Managing Owner and its Affiliates) equal to at least a majority (over 50%) of the Net Asset Value of all Funds (excluding Units held by the Managing Owner and its Affiliates) or, if the proposed amendment affects only certain series, of each affected series, or such higher percentage as may be required by applicable law, and upon receipt of an opinion of independent legal counsel to the effect that the amendment is legal, valid and binding and will not adversely affect the limitations on liability of the Limited Owners as described in Section 8.3 of this Trust Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, where any action taken or authorized pursuant to any provision of this Trust Agreement requires the approval or affirmative vote of Limited Owners holding a greater interest in Limited Units than is required to amend this Trust Agreement under this Section 11.1, and/or the approval or affirmative vote of the Managing Owner, an amendment to such provision(s) shall be effective only upon the written approval or affirmative vote of the minimum number of Unitholders which would be required to take or authorize such action, or as may otherwise be required by applicable law, and upon receipt of an opinion of independent legal counsel as set forth above in this Section 11.1. In addition, except as otherwise provided below, reduction of the capital account of any assignee or modification of the percentage of Profits, Losses or distributions to which an assignee is entitled hereunder shall not be affected by amendment to this Trust Agreement without such assignee’s approval.

45

(b) Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in Section 11.1(a) hereof, the Managing Owner may, without the approval of the Limited Owners, make such amendments to this Trust Agreement which (i) are necessary to add to the representations, duties or obligations of the Managing Owner or surrender any right or power granted to the Managing Owner herein, for the benefit of the Limited Owners, (ii) are necessary to cure any ambiguity, to correct or supplement any provision herein which may be inconsistent with any other provision herein or in the Prospectus, or to make any other provisions with respect to matters or questions arising under this Trust Agreement or the Prospectus which will not be inconsistent with the provisions of the Trust Agreement or the Prospectus, or (iii) the Managing Owner deems advisable, provided, however, that no amendment shall be adopted pursuant to this clause (iii) unless the adoption thereof (A) is not adverse to the interests of the Limited Owners; (B) is consistent with Section 4.1 hereof; (C) except as otherwise provided in Section 11.1(c) below, does not affect the allocation of Profits and Losses among the Limited Owners or between the Limited Owners and the Managing Owner; and (D) does not adversely affect the limitations on liability of the Limited Owners, as described in Article VIII hereof or the status of any Fund as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Amendments to this document which adversely affect (i) the rights of Limited Owners, (ii) the appointment of a new Managing Owner pursuant to Section 4.2(g) above, (iii) the dissolution of the Trust pursuant to Section 13.1(f) below and (iv) any material changes in the Trust’s or a Fund’s basic investment policies or structure shall occur only upon the written approval or affirmative vote of Limited Owners holding Units equal to at least a majority (over 50%) of the Net Asset Value of each Fund or, if not all Funds are affected, of the affected Fund or Funds (excluding Units held by the Managing Owner and its Affiliates) pursuant to Section 11.1(a) above.

(c) Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in Sections 11.1(a) and (b) hereof, the Managing Owner may, without the approval of the Limited Owners, amend the provisions of this Trust Agreement if the Trust is advised at any time by the Trust’s accountants or legal counsel that the amendments made are necessary to ensure that the Funds’ status as partnerships will be respected for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

(d) Upon amendment of this Trust Agreement, the Certificate of Trust shall also be amended, if required by the Delaware Trust Statute, to reflect such change.

(e) No amendment shall be made to this Trust Agreement without the consent of the Trustee if it reasonably believes that such amendment adversely affects any of the rights, duties or liabilities of the Trustee; provided, however, that the Trustee may not withhold its consent for any action which the Limited Owners are permitted to take under Section 8.2(d) above. At the expense of the Managing Owner, the Trustee shall execute and file any amendment to the Certificate of Trust if so directed by the Managing Owner or if such amendment is required in the opinion of the Trustee.

(f) The Trustee shall be under no obligation to execute any amendment to the Trust Agreement or to any agreement to which the Trust is a party until it has received an instruction letter from the Managing Owner, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee (i) directing the Trustee to execute such amendment, (ii) representing and warranting to the Trustee that such execution is authorized and permitted by the terms of the Trust Agreement and (if applicable) such other agreement to which the Trust is a party and does not conflict with or violate any other agreement to which the Trust is a party and (iii) confirming that such execution and acts related thereto are covered by the indemnity provisions of the Trust Agreement in favor of the Trustee and do not adversely affect the Trustee.

46

(g) To the fullest extent permitted by law, no provision of this Trust Agreement may be amended, waived or otherwise modified orally but only by a written instrument adopted in accordance with this Section.

SECTION 11.2. Meetings of the Trust or the Funds. Meetings of the Unitholders may be called by the Managing Owner and will be called by it upon the written request of Limited Owners holding Units equal to at least 10% of the Net Asset Value of all Funds or any Fund, as applicable. Such call for a meeting shall be deemed to have been made upon the receipt by the Managing Owner of a written request from the requisite percentage of Limited Owners. The Managing Owner shall deposit in the United States mails within fifteen (15) days after receipt of said request, written notice to all Unitholders of the applicable Fund of the meeting and the purpose of the meeting, which shall be held on a date, not less than thirty (30) nor more than sixty (60) days after the date of mailing of said notice, at a reasonable time and place. Any notice of meeting shall be accompanied by a description of the action to be taken at the meeting and an opinion of independent counsel as to the effect of such proposed action on the liability of Limited Owners for the debts of the applicable Fund. Unitholders may vote in person or by proxy at any such meeting.

SECTION 11.3. Action Without a Meeting. Any action required or permitted to be taken by Unitholders by vote may be taken without a meeting by written consent setting forth the actions so taken. Such written consents shall be treated for all purposes as votes at a meeting. If the vote or consent of any Unitholder to any action of the Trust, any Fund or any Unitholder, as contemplated by this Trust Agreement, is solicited by the Managing Owner, the solicitation shall be effected by notice to each Unitholder given in the manner provided in Section 15.4. The vote or consent of each Unitholder so solicited shall be deemed conclusively to have been cast or granted as requested in the notice of solicitation, whether or not the notice of solicitation is actually received by that Unitholder, unless the Unitholder expresses written objection to the vote or consent by notice given in the manner provided in Section 15.4 below and actually received by the Trust within twenty (20) days after the notice of solicitation is effected. The Managing Owner and all persons dealing with the Trust shall be entitled to act in reliance on any vote or consent which is deemed cast or granted pursuant to this Section and shall be fully indemnified by the Trust in so doing. Any action taken or omitted in reliance on any such deemed vote or consent of one or more Unitholders shall not be void or voidable by reason of timely communication made by or on behalf of all or any of such Unitholders in any manner other than as expressly provided in Section 15.4.

SECTION 13.1. Events Requiring Dissolution of the Trust or any Fund. The Trust or, as the case may be, any Fund shall dissolve at any time upon the happening of any of the following events:

(a) The filing of a certificate of dissolution or revocation of the Managing Owner’s charter (and the expiration of ninety (90) days after the date of notice to the Managing Owner of revocation without a reinstatement of its charter) or upon the withdrawal, removal, adjudication or admission of bankruptcy or insolvency of the Managing Owner (each of the foregoing events an “Event of Withdrawal”) unless (i) at the time there is at least one remaining Managing Owner and that remaining Managing Owner carries on the business of the Trust or (ii) within ninety (90) days of such Event of Withdrawal all the remaining Unitholders agree in writing to continue the business of the Trust and to select, effective as of the date of such event, one or more successor Managing Owners. If the Trust is terminated as the result of an Event of Withdrawal and a failure of all remaining Unitholders to continue the business of the Trust and to appoint a successor Managing Owner as provided in clause (a)(ii) above, within one hundred and twenty (120) days of such Event of Withdrawal, Limited Owners holding Units representing at least a majority (over 50%) of the Net Asset Value of each Fund (not including Units held by the Managing Owner and its Affiliates) may elect to continue the business of the Trust by forming a new statutory trust (the “Reconstituted Trust”) on the same terms and provisions as set forth in this Trust Agreement (whereupon the parties hereto shall execute and deliver any documents or instruments as may be necessary to reform the Trust). Any such election must also provide for the election of a Managing Owner to the Reconstituted Trust. If such an election is made, all Limited Owners of the Trust shall be bound thereby and continue as Limited Owners of the Reconstituted Trust.

(b) The occurrence of any event which would make unlawful the continued existence of the Trust or any Fund, as the case may be.

(c) In the event of the suspension, revocation or termination of the Managing Owner’s registration as a commodity pool operator or commodity trading advisor under the CE Act, or membership as a commodity pool operator or commodity trading advisor with the NFA (if, in either case, such registration is required under the CE Act or the rules promulgated thereunder) unless at the time there is at least one remaining Managing Owner whose registration or membership has not been suspended, revoked or terminated.

(d) The Trust or any Fund, as the case may be, becomes insolvent or bankrupt.

(e) The Limited Owners holding Units representing at least a majority (over 50%) of the Net Asset Value of all Funds (which excludes the Units of the Managing Owner) vote to dissolve the Trust, notice of which is sent to the Managing Owner not less than ninety (90) Business Days prior to the effective date of termination.

48

(f) The determination of the Managing Owner that a Fund’s aggregate net assets in relation to the operating expenses of such Fund make it unreasonable or imprudent to continue the business of such Fund, or, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion, the determination by the Managing Owner to dissolve the Trust because the aggregate Net Asset Value of the Trust or any Fund as of the close of business on any Business Day declines below $10 million.

(g) The Trust is required to be registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940.

(h) DTC is unable or unwilling to continue to perform its functions, and a comparable replacement is unavailable.

The death, legal disability, bankruptcy, insolvency, dissolution, or withdrawal of any Limited Owner (as long as such Limited Owner is not the sole Limited Owner of the Trust) shall not result in the termination of the Trust or any Fund, and such Limited Owner, his estate, custodian or personal representative shall have no right to withdraw or value such Limited Owner’s Units. Each Limited Owner (and any assignee thereof) expressly agrees that in the event of his death, he waives on behalf of himself and his estate, and he directs the legal representative of his estate and any person interested therein to waive the furnishing of any inventory, accounting or appraisal of the assets of the applicable Fund and any right to an audit or examination of the books of the applicable Fund, except for such rights as are set forth in Article IX hereof relating to the books of account and reports of the applicable Fund.

SECTION 13.2. Distributions on Dissolution. Upon the dissolution of the Trust or any Fund, the Managing Owner (or in the event there is no Managing Owner, such person (the “Liquidating Trustee”) as the majority in interest of the Limited Owners may propose and approve) shall take full charge of the applicable Trust Estate. Any Liquidating Trustee so appointed shall have and may exercise, without further authorization or approval of any of the parties hereto, all of the powers conferred upon the Managing Owner under the terms of this Trust Agreement, subject to all of the applicable limitations, contractual and otherwise, upon the exercise of such powers, and provided that the Liquidating Trustee shall not have general liability for the acts, omissions, obligations and expenses of the Trust or the Funds. Thereafter, in accordance with Section 3808(e) of the Delaware Trust Statute, the business and affairs of the Trust or any Fund shall be wound up and all assets shall be liquidated as promptly as is consistent with obtaining the fair value thereof, and the proceeds therefrom shall be applied and distributed in the following order of priority: (a) to the expenses of liquidation and termination and to creditors, including Unitholders who are creditors, to the extent otherwise permitted by law, in satisfaction of liabilities of the Trust or the Funds (whether by payment or the making of reasonable provision for payment thereof) other than liabilities for distributions to Unitholders, and (b) to the Managing Owner and each Limited Owner pro rata in accordance with his positive book capital account balance, less any amount owing by such Unitholder, after giving effect to all adjustments made pursuant to Article VI and all distributions theretofore made to the Unitholders pursuant to Article VI. After the distribution of all remaining assets of the Trust or any Fund, the Managing Owner will contribute to the Trust or the Fund an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the deficit balance, if any, in its book capital account, and (ii) the total Capital Contributions of the Limited Owners. Any Capital Contributions made by the Managing Owner

49

pursuant to this Section shall be applied first to satisfy any amounts then owed by the Trust or the Fund to its creditors, and the balance, if any, shall be distributed to those Unitholders whose book capital account balances (immediately following the distribution of any liquidation proceeds) were positive, in proportion to their respective positive book capital account balances

SECTION 13.3. Termination; Certificate of Cancellation. Following the dissolution and distribution of the assets of all Funds, the Trust shall terminate and the Managing Owner or Liquidating Trustee, as the case may be, shall instruct the Trustee to execute and cause such certificate of cancellation of the Certificate of Trust to be filed in accordance with the Delaware Trust Statute. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Trust Agreement, the existence of the Trust as a separate legal entity shall continue until the filing of such certificate of cancellation.

50

SECTION 14.2. Effect of Executing and Submitting the Purchase Order Subscription Agreement. By executing and submitting the Purchase Order Subscription Agreement, each Limited Owner has agreed to concurrently grant the following power of attorney to the Managing Owner (the “Power of Attorney”) which:

Each Limited Owner agrees to be bound by any representations made by the Managing Owner and by any successor thereto, determined to be acting in good faith pursuant to such Power of Attorney and not constituting negligence or misconduct.

SECTION 14.3. Limitation on Power of Attorney. The Power of Attorney concurrently granted by each Limited Owner to the Managing Owner shall not authorize the Managing Owner to act on behalf of Limited Owners in any situation in which this Trust Agreement requires the approval of Limited Owners unless such approval has been obtained as required by this Trust Agreement. In the event of any conflict between this Trust Agreement and any instruments filed by the Managing Owner or any new Managing Owner pursuant to this Power of Attorney, this Trust Agreement shall control.

No Managing Owner or Trustee shall be liable for making or failing to make such a determination.

This Description is attached as Exhibit B to the Second Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust and Trust Agreement of PowerShares DB Multi-Sector Commodity Trust, dated as of December 31, 2010.

1. GENERAL

Each of the DBIQ Optimum Yield Index Excess Return™ (the “DBIQ-OYER™”) and the DBIQ Index Excess Return™ (the “DBIQ ER™”) (“DBIQ-OYER™” and “DBIQ ER™,” collectively, “DBIQ™” or “DBIQ ER™”) is intended to reflect the changes in the market value, over time, positive or negative, in certain sectors of commodities (each, a “Sector Index”). Each Sector Index is calculated on an excess return, or unfunded basis. All Sector Indexes, excluding portions of the DBIQ Diversified Agriculture Index Excess Return™, are rolled in a manner which are aimed at potentially maximizing the roll benefits in backwardated markets and minimizing the losses from rolling in contangoed markets (“Optimum Yield”) with respect to each Sector Index. Only DBIQ Diversified Agriculture Index Excess Return™ is rolled both on an Optimum Yield basis and non-Optimum Yield basis as provided under “Contract Selection (Non-OY Single Commodity Indexes only)” in paragraph 2 herein. Each Sector Index is comprised of one or more underlying commodities (the “Index Commodities”). The composition of Index Commodities with respect to each Sector Index varies according to each specific sector that such Sector Index intends to reflect. Each Index Commodity is represented in the Sector Index as an index with respect to that specific Index Commodity (“Single Commodity Index”). Each Index Commodity is assigned a weight (the “Index Base Weight”) which is intended to reflect the proportion of such Index Commodity relative to each Sector Index.

The Sector Indexes include:

  •  

DBIQ Optimum Yield Energy Index Excess Return™ (“DBIQ-OY Energy ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the energy sector.

  •  

DBIQ Optimum Yield Crude Oil Index Excess Return™ (“DBIQ-OY CL ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the crude oil sector.

  •  

DBIQ Optimum Yield Precious Metals Index Excess Return™ (“DBIQ-OY Precious Metals ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the precious metals sector.

  •  

DBIQ Optimum Yield Gold Index Excess Return™ (“DBIQ-OY GC ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the gold sector.

  •  

DBIQ Optimum Yield Silver Index Excess Return™ (“DBIQ-OY SI ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the silver sector.

  •  

DBIQ Optimum Yield Industrial Metals Index Excess Return™ (“DBIQ -OY Industrial Metals ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the base metals sector.

  •  

DBIQ Diversified Agriculture Excess Index Return™ (“DBIQ Diversified Agriculture ER™”) is intended to reflect the performance of the agricultural sector.

B-2

DBIQ-OY CL ER™, DBIQ-OY GC ER™, or DBIQ-OY SI ER™ are Sector Indexes with a single Index Commodity, or Single Commodity Sector Indexes.

Each Sector Index has been calculated back to a base date (the “Base Date”). On the Base Date the closing level of each Sector Index, or Closing Level, was 100.

The sponsor of the each Sector Index is Deutsche Bank AG London (the “Index Sponsor”).

B-4

Each Single Commodity Index employs a rule-based approach when it ‘rolls’ from one futures contract to another for each Index Commodity. Rather than select a new futures contract based on a predetermined schedule (e.g., monthly), each futures contract underlying a Single Commodity Index (excluding the following Single Commodity Indexes of the DBIQ Diversified Agriculture ER™: Cocoa, Coffee, Cotton, Live Cattle, Feeder Cattle and Live Hogs (the “non-OY Single Commodity Indexes”)) rolls to the futures contract which generates the maximum ‘implied roll yield’ (the “OY Single Commodity Indexes”). The futures contract having a delivery month within the next thirteen months which generates the highest implied roll yield will be included in each OY Single Commodity Index. As a result, each OY Single Commodity Index is able to potentially maximize the roll benefits in backwardated markets and minimize the losses from rolling in contangoed markets.

In general, as a futures contract approaches its expiration date, its price will move towards the spot price in a contango market. Assuming the spot price does not change, this would result in the futures contract price decreasing. The opposite is true in a backwardated market. A contango market will tend to cause a drag on each OY Single Commodity Index while a backwardated market will tend to cause a push on an OY Single Commodity Index.

Each of the non-OY Single Commodity Indexes rolls only to the next to expire futures contract as provided under “Contract Selection (Non-OY Single Commodity Indexes only)” in paragraph 2 below.

DBIQ™ is calculated in USD on both an excess return (unfunded) and total return (funded) index levels.

The futures contract price of the underlying futures contracts of each Single Commodity Index (and, in turn, each Index Commodity) will be the exchange closing prices for the underlying futures contract of each such Single Commodity Index on each weekday when banks in New York, New York are open (“Index Business Days”). If a weekday is not an Exchange Business Day but is an Index Business Day, the exchange closing price from the previous Index Business Day will be used for the underlying futures contract of each Single Commodity Index. “Exchange Business Day” means, in respect of the underlying futures contract of each Single Commodity Index, a day that is (or, but for the occurrence of an Index Disruption Event, as provided in paragraph 3, or Force Majeure Event, as provided in paragraph 4, would have been) a trading day for such underlying futures contract of each Single Commodity Index on the relevant Exchange, as defined in paragraph 3.

2. INDEX CALCULATION AND RULES

The excess return calculation of each Sector Index is equal to the percentage change of the market values of the underlying Single Commodity Indexes with respect to each Index Commodity. The excess return calculation of each Single Commodity Sector Index is equal to the percentage change of the market values of the underlying Single Commodity Index with respect to the applicable Index Commodity. Each Single Commodity Index will have two futures contracts on each Index Commodity throughout roll periods and one futures contracts on all other days.

B-5

Excess Return Calculation of DBIQ ER™

The excess return calculation of the DBIQ ER™ in USD is expressed as:

Where:

ILer(t)    = Excess Return Index level on day t
ILer(t-1)    = Excess Return Index level on index calculation day t-1
PC(t,i)    = Close price of commodity future i on day t
PC(t-1,i)    = Close price of commodity future i on index calculation day t-1
N(t-1,i)    = Notional holding of commodity future i on index calculation day t-1

Contract Selection (All Sector Indexes, excluding non-OY Single Commodity Indexes)

On the first New York business day of each month (the “Verification Date”) each futures contract currently in each OY Single Commodity Index is tested for continued inclusion in the OY Single Commodity Index based on the month in which the futures contract underlying the OY Single Commodity Index requires delivery of the underlying Index Commodity (the “Delivery Month”). If, on the Verification Date, the Delivery Month is the next month, a new futures contract is selected for the OY Single Commodity Index. For example, if the first New York business day is May 1, 2006, and the Delivery Month of a futures contract currently in the OY Single Commodity Index is June 2006, a new futures contract with a later Delivery Month will be selected for the OY Single Commodity Index.

For each futures contract selected for an OY Single Commodity Index, the new futures contract selected for inclusion in the OY Single Commodity Index will be the futures contract with the maximum “implied roll yield” based on the closing price for each eligible futures contract (“Eligible Futures Contract”). Eligible Futures Contracts are any futures contracts having a Delivery Month (i) no sooner than the month after the Delivery Month of the futures contract currently in the OY Single Commodity Index, and (ii) no later than the 13th month after the Verification Date. For example, if the first New York business day is May 1, 2006 and the Delivery Month of a futures contract currently in the OY Single Commodity Index is therefore June 2006, the Delivery Month of an Eligible Futures Contract must be between July 2006 and June 2007. The implied roll yield is expressed as:

B-6

Where:

Y(t,i)   

=  On any day t, the implied roll yield for entering into the commodity futures contract on an Index Commodity with exchange Delivery Month i

PC(t,b)   

=  Close price of the base commodity future b

PC(t,i)   

=  Close price of any Eligible Futures Contract with exchange Delivery Month i

F(t,i,b)   

=  Fraction of year between the base futures contract on b and the futures contract with exchange Delivery Month i. Calculated as number of calendar days between dates divided by 365.

b   

=  Base commodity futures contract is the Index Commodity futures contract currently in the OY Single Commodity Index.

The futures contract with the maximum implied roll yield is then selected for inclusion in a OY Single Commodity Index. If two futures contracts have the same implied roll yield, the futures contract with the minimum number of months prior to the exchange expiry month is selected for the OY Single Commodity Index.

Contract Selection (Non-OY Single Commodity Indexes only) and Recomposition Periods

On the first Index Business Day of each month, each non-OY Single Commodity Index will select a new futures contract to replace the old futures contract as provided in the following schedule. After selection of the replacement futures contract, each non-OY Single Commodity Index will roll such replacement futures contract as provided in the sub-paragraph “Monthly Index Roll Period with respect to both OY Single Commodity Indexes and Non-OY Single Commodity Indexes.”

Monthly Index Roll Period with respect to both OY Single Commodity Indexes and Non-OY Single Commodity Indexes

For purposes of this sub-paragraph, the term “Single Commodity Index” also includes the term “non-OY Single Commodity Index.”

After the futures contract selection, the monthly Single Commodity Index roll unwinds the old futures contract and enters a position in the new futures contract. This takes place between the 2nd and 6th Index Business Day of the month.

If the old futures contract and the new futures contract are the same, then the contract will not be rolled and the notional holding is kept constant as follows:

On each day during the roll period, new notional holdings are calculated. The calculations for the old futures contracts comprising a Single Commodity Index that are leaving the Sector Index and the new futures contracts comprising a Single Commodity Index that are entering the Sector Index are different.

The notional holdings of the old futures contracts comprising a Single Commodity Index i is expressed as:

The notional holdings of the new futures contracts comprising a Single Commodity Index j is expressed as:

Where:

N(t-1,i)    = Notional holding of old commodity future i on index calculation day t-1
N(t,i)    = Notional holding of old commodity future i on index calculation day t
N(t-1,j)    = Notional holding of new commodity future j on index calculation day t-1
N(t,j)    = Notional holding of new commodity future j on index calculation day t
db(t)    = Number of index business days in the month up to and including day t

On all days that are not monthly index roll days, the notional holdings of each future contract comprising a Single Commodity Index remains constant as follows:

B-8

DBIQ ER™ Re-weighting Calculation

For purposes of this sub-paragraph, the term “Single Commodity Index” also includes the term “non-OY Single Commodity Index.”

The DBIQ ER™ is re-weighted on an annual basis on the 6th Index Business Day of each November.

The DBIQ ER™ calculation is expressed as the weighted average return of each underlying Single Commodity Index.

Where:

IL(t,c,rt)   

=  Index level on day t in currency c with return type rt

IL(d,c,rt)   

=  Index level on last rebalancing day d in currency c with return type rt

CIL(t,c,rt)   

=  Component Single Commodity Index level for commodity cf on day t in currency c with return type rt

CIL(d,c,rt)   

=  Component Single Commodity Index level for commodity cf on last rebalancing day d in currency c with return type rt

w(d,cf)   

=  Weight of commodity cf on last rebalancing day d

3. INDEX DISRUPTION EVENT

If an Index Disruption Event in relation to a futures contract underlying a Single Commodity Index continues for a period of five successive Exchange Business Days, the Index Sponsor will, in its discretion, either (i) continue to calculate the relevant Closing Price of each futures contract underlying a Single Commodity Index by reference to the Closing Price of the relevant Exchange Traded Instrument with respect to such futures contract underlying a Single Commodity Index on the immediately preceding Valid Date (as provided in the definition of the relevant Closing Price) for a further period of five successive Exchange Business Days or (ii) select:

(a) an Exchange Traded Instrument relating to the relevant Index Commodity or in the determination of the Index Sponsor a commodity substantially similar to the relevant Index Commodity published in U.S. Dollars; or
(b) if no Exchange Traded Instrument as described in (a) above is available or the Index Sponsor determines that for any reason (including, without limitation, the liquidity or volatility of such Exchange Traded Instrument at the relevant time) the inclusion of such Exchange Traded Instrument in a Single Commodity Index would not be appropriate, an Exchange Traded Instrument relating to the relevant Index Commodity or in the determination of the Index Sponsor a commodity substantially similar to the relevant Index Commodity published in a currency other than U.S. Dollars; or

B-9

(c) if no such Exchange Traded Instrument as described in (a) or (b) above is available or the Index Sponsor determines that for any reason (including, without limitation, the liquidity or volatility of such Exchange Traded Instrument at the relevant time) the inclusion of such Exchange Traded Instrument would not be appropriate, an Exchange Traded Instrument relating to any commodity in the same Group of Commodities as the relevant Index Commodity which is published in U.S. Dollars,

in each case to replace the exchange instrument relating to the relevant Index Commodity, all as determined by the Index Sponsor.

In the case of (i) above, if an Index Disruption Event in relation to the relevant Index Commodity continues for the further period of five successive Exchange Business Days referred to therein, on the expiry of such period the provisions of (ii) above shall apply.

In the case of a replacement of an Exchange Traded Instrument as described in (ii) above, the Index Sponsor will make such adjustments to the methodology and calculation of the Sector Index (or Single Commodity Sector Index, as applicable) as it determines to be appropriate to account for the relevant replacement and will publish such adjustments in accordance with paragraph 7 (Publication of Closing Levels and Adjustments) below.

For the purposes of this Description:

(c) If the Claims of the holder against the Fund or the Trust are secured in whole or in part, the holder hereby waives (under section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. § 1111(b)) any right to have any deficiency Claims (which deficiency Claims may arise in the event such security is inadequate to satisfy such Claims) treated as unsecured Claims against the Trust or any series (other than the Fund), as the case may be;

C-3

(d) in furtherance of the foregoing, if and to the extent that the holder receives monies in connection with the Subordinated Claims and Units from a series or the Trust (or their respective assets), other than the Fund, the Fund Assets and the Managing Owner and its assets, the holder shall be deemed to hold such monies in trust and shall promptly remit such monies to the series or the Trust that paid such amounts for distribution by the series or the Trust in accordance with the terms hereof; and

FORM OF PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT

FORM OF

POWERSHARES DB MULTI-SECTOR COMMODITY TRUST

PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT

This Participant Agreement (the “Agreement”), dated as of                     , 20__, is entered into by and among [            ] (the “Authorized Participant”), PowerShares DB Multi-Sector Commodity Trust, a Delaware statutory trust (the “Trust”) with respect to each of PowerShares DB Energy Fund, PowerShares DB Oil Fund, PowerShares DB Precious Metals Fund, PowerShares DB Gold Fund, PowerShares DB Silver Fund, PowerShares DB Base Metals Fund, and PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund, each as a separate series of the Trust (each, a “Fund” and collectively, the “Funds”), and DB Commodity Services LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as managing owner of the Trust and the Funds (the “Managing Owner”).

SUMMARY

As provided in the Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust and Trust Agreement of the Trust (the “Trust Agreement”) as currently in effect and described in the Prospectus (defined below), units of fractional undivided beneficial interest in and ownership of each Fund (individually and collectively, the “Shares”) may be created or redeemed by the Managing Owner for an Authorized Participant in aggregations of two hundred thousand (200,000) Shares (each aggregation, a “Basket”). Baskets are offered only pursuant to the registration statement of the Trust on Form S-3, as amended (Registration Nos.: 333-163453 and 333-163453-01 et seq.), as declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and as the same may be amended from time to time thereafter or any successor registration statement in respect of Shares of each Fund (collectively, the “Registration Statement”) together with the prospectus of the Trust in the form filed with the SEC under Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) after the effectiveness of the Registration Statement (the “Prospectus”). Under the Trust Agreement, the Managing Owner is authorized to issue Baskets to, and redeem Baskets from, Authorized Participants, only through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company (“DTC” or the “Depository”), or a successor depository, and only in exchange for cash. This Agreement sets forth the specific procedures by which an Authorized Participant may create or redeem Baskets.

Because new Shares for each Fund can be created and issued by the Trust on an ongoing basis, at any point during the life of each respective Fund, a “distribution,” as such term is used in the 1933 Act, may be occurring. The Authorized Participant is cautioned that some of its activities may result in its being deemed a participant in a distribution in a manner that would render it a statutory underwriter and subject it to the prospectus delivery and liability provisions of the 1933 Act. The Authorized Participant should review the “Plan of Distribution” section of the Prospectus and consult with its own counsel in connection with entering into this Agreement and submitting a Purchase Order Subscription Agreement (defined below).

Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Trust Agreement. To the extent there is a conflict between any provision of this Agreement and the provisions of the Trust Agreement, the provisions of the Trust Agreement shall control.

D-1

To give effect to the foregoing premises and in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements set forth below, the parties hereto agree as follows:

Section 1. Order Placement. To place orders for the Managing Owner to create or redeem one or more Baskets, Authorized Participants must follow the procedures for creation and redemption referred to in Section 3 of this Agreement and the procedures described in Attachment A hereto (the “Procedures”), as each may be amended, modified or supplemented from time to time.

Section 2. Status of Authorized Participant. The Authorized Participant represents and warrants and covenants the following:

(a) The Authorized Participant is a participant of DTC (as such a participant, a “DTC Participant”). If the Authorized Participant ceases to be a DTC Participant, the Authorized Participant shall give immediate notice to the Managing Owner of such event, and this Agreement shall terminate immediately as of the date the Authorized Participant ceased to be a DTC Participant.

(b) Unless Section 2(c) applies, the Authorized Participant either (i) is registered as a broker-dealer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“1934 Act”), and is a member in good standing of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), or (ii) is exempt from being, or otherwise is not required to be, licensed as a broker-dealer or a member of FINRA, and in either case is qualified to act as a broker or dealer in the states or other jurisdictions where the nature of its business so requires. The Authorized Participant will maintain any such registrations, qualifications and membership in good standing and in full force and effect throughout the term of this Agreement. The Authorized Participant will comply with all applicable United States federal laws, including without limitation, the delivery requirements of Section 5 of the 1933 Act and all applicable rules of the SEC, the laws of the states or other jurisdictions concerned, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, and with the Constitution, By-Laws and Conduct Rules of the National Association of Securities Dealers (“NASD”) (or of comparable FINRA Conduct Rules, if such NASD Conduct Rules are subsequently renamed, repealed, rescinded, or are otherwise replaced by FINRA Conduct Rules) if it is a FINRA member, and will not offer or sell Shares in any state or jurisdiction where they may not lawfully be offered and/or sold.

(c) If the Authorized Participant is offering or selling Shares in jurisdictions outside the several states, territories and possessions of the United States and is not otherwise required to be registered, qualified or a member of FINRA as set forth in Section 2(b) above, the Authorized Participant will (i) observe the applicable laws of the jurisdiction in which such offer and/or sale is made, (ii) comply with the full disclosure requirements of the 1933 Act, and the regulations promulgated thereunder, and (iii) conduct its business in accordance with the spirit of the NASD Conduct Rules.

D-2

(d) The Authorized Participant is in compliance with the money laundering and related provisions of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (the “USA PATRIOT Act”), and the regulations promulgated thereunder, if the Authorized Participant is subject to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act.

Section 3. Orders. (a) All orders to create or redeem Baskets shall be made in accordance with the terms of the Trust Agreement, this Agreement and the Procedures. Each party will comply with such foregoing terms and procedures to the extent applicable to it. The Authorized Participant hereby consents to the use of recorded telephone lines whether or not such use is reflected in the Procedures. The Managing Owner may issue additional or other procedures from time to time relating to the manner of creating or redeeming Baskets which are not related to the Procedures, and the Authorized Participant will comply with such procedures of which it has been notified in accordance with this Agreement.

(b) The Authorized Participant acknowledges and agrees on behalf of itself and any party for which it is acting (whether such party is a customer or otherwise) that each order to create a Basket (a “Purchase Order Subscription Agreement”) and each order to redeem a Basket (a “Redemption Order”, and each Purchase Order Subscription Agreement and Redemption Order, an “Order”) may not be revoked by the Authorized Participant upon its delivery to the Managing Owner. A form of Purchase Order Subscription Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit B and a form of Redemption Order is attached hereto as Exhibit C.

(c) The Managing Owner shall have the absolute right, but shall have no obligation, to reject any Purchase Order Subscription Agreement or Creation Basket Capital Contribution (i) determined by the Managing Owner not to be in proper form; (ii) that the Managing Owner has determined would have adverse tax consequences to any Fund or to the Beneficial Owners; (iii) the acceptance or receipt of which could, in the opinion of counsel to the Managing Owner be unlawful; or (iv) if circumstances outside the control of the Managing Owner make it for all practical purposes not feasible to process creations of Creation Baskets. The Managing Owner shall not be liable to any person by reason of the rejection of any Purchase Order Subscription Agreement or Creation Basket Capital Contribution.

(d) The Managing Owner shall reject any Redemption Order the fulfillment of which its counsel advises would be illegal under applicable laws and regulations, and the Managing Owner shall have no liability to any person for rejecting a Redemption Order in such circumstances.

(e) The Managing Owner may, in its discretion, suspend the right of redemption, or postpone the applicable Redemption Settlement Time, (i) for any period during which the NYSE Arca or any exchange on which the assets of any Fund are regularly traded is closed other than for customary weekend or holiday closings, or trading is suspended or restricted; (ii) for any period during which an emergency exists as a result of which delivery, disposal or evaluation of the assets of any Fund is not reasonably practicable; or (iii) for such other period as the Managing Owner determines to be necessary for the protection of the Beneficial Owners. The Managing Owner is not liable to any person or in any way for any loss or damages that may result from any such suspension or postponement.

D-3

Section 4. Fees. In connection with each Order by an Authorized Participant to create or redeem one or more Baskets, the Managing Owner shall charge, and the Authorized Participant shall pay from its DTC account to the Managing Owner, the Transaction Fee prescribed in the Trust Agreement applicable to such creation or redemption. The initial Transaction Fee shall be Five Hundred Dollars ($500) per Basket. The Transaction Fee may be adjusted from time to time as set forth in the Trust Agreement and Prospectus. As described in the Procedures, the Authorized Participant will be charged by the Managing Owner an additional processing charge if the Authorized Participant fails timely to deliver the Creation Basket Capital Contribution (in the case of a Purchase Order Subscription Agreement) or the Baskets (in the case of a Redemption Order).

Section 5. Authorized Persons. Concurrently with the execution of this Agreement and from time to time thereafter, the Authorized Participant shall deliver to the Managing Owner notarized and duly certified as appropriate by its secretary or other duly authorized official, a certificate in the form of Exhibit A setting forth the names and signatures of all persons authorized to give instructions relating to activity contemplated hereby or by any other notice, request or instruction given on behalf of the Authorized Participant (each, an “Authorized Person”). The Managing Owner may accept and rely upon such certificate as conclusive evidence of the facts set forth therein and shall consider such certificate to be in full force and effect until the Managing Owner receives a superseding certificate bearing a subsequent date. Upon the termination or revocation of authority of any Authorized Person by the Authorized Participant, the Authorized Participant shall give immediate written notice of such fact to the Managing Owner and such notice shall be effective upon receipt by the Managing Owner. The Managing Owner shall issue to each Authorized Person a unique personal identification number (the “PIN Number”) by which such Authorized Person shall be identified and by which instructions issued by the Authorized Participant hereunder shall be authenticated. The PIN Number shall be kept confidential by the Authorized Participant and shall only be provided to the Authorized Person. If, after issuance, the Authorized Person’s PIN Number is changed, the new PIN Number shall become effective on a date mutually agreed upon by the Authorized Participant and the Managing Owner.

Section 6. Redemption. The Authorized Participant represents and warrants that it will not obtain an Order Number (as described in the Procedures) from the Managing Owner for the purpose of redeeming a Basket unless it first ascertains that (i) it or its customer, as the case may be, owns outright or has full legal authority and legal and beneficial right to tender for redemption the Baskets to be redeemed and to receive the entire proceeds of the redemption, and (ii) the delivery of such Baskets to the Managing Owner on the Business Day following the Redemption Order Date would not be precluded by virtue of such Baskets being loaned or pledged to another party or the subject of a repurchase agreement, securities lending agreement or any other arrangement.

Section 7. Role of Authorized Participant. (a) The Authorized Participant acknowledges that, for all purposes of this Agreement and the Trust Agreement, the Authorized Participant is and shall be deemed to be an independent contractor and has and shall have no authority to act as agent for any Fund or the Managing Owner in any matter or in any respect.

D-4

(b) The Authorized Participant will make itself and its employees available, upon request, during normal business hours to consult with the Managing Owner or its designees concerning the performance of the Authorized Participant’s responsibilities under this Agreement.

(c) With respect to any creation or redemption transaction made by the Authorized Participant pursuant to this Agreement for the benefit of any customer or any other DTC Participant or Indirect Participant, or any other Beneficial Owner, the Authorized Participant shall extend to any such party all of the rights, and shall be bound by all of the obligations, of a DTC Participant in addition to any obligations that it undertakes hereunder or in accordance with the Trust Agreement.

(d) Upon reasonable request by the Managing Owner, the Authorized Participant will, subject to any limitations arising under federal or state securities laws relating to privacy or other obligations it may have to its customers, provide the Managing Owner written notice indicating the number of Shares that the Authorized Participant may hold as record holder and the amount of such Shares that it holds for the benefit of other broker-dealers that clear and settle transactions in Shares through the Authorized Participant, in each case as of the date of such request and with respect to each Fund. In addition, the Authorized Participant agrees, upon request of the Managing Owner, and subject to applicable laws, rules and regulations, to transmit to its account holders who are Beneficial Owners of Shares, such written materials received from the Managing Owner (including notices, annual reports, disclosure or other informational or tax materials and any amendments or supplements thereto and communications) as may be required to be transmitted to Beneficial Owners pursuant to the Trust Agreement or applicable law, provided that the expenses associated with such transmissions shall be borne by the Managing Owner in accordance with usual custom and practice in respect of such communications.

Section 8. Indemnification.

(a) The Authorized Participant hereby indemnifies and holds harmless the Trust, each Fund and the Managing Owner, their respective direct or indirect affiliates (as defined below) and their respective directors, trustees, managing owners, partners, members, managers, officers, employees and agents (each, an “AP Indemnified Party”) from and against any losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and the reasonable cost of investigation) incurred by such AP Indemnified Party as a result of or in connection with: (i) any breach by the Authorized Participant of any provisions of this Agreement, including its representations, warranties and covenants; (ii) any failure on the part of the Authorized Participant to perform any of its obligations set forth in this Agreement; (iii) any failure by the Authorized Participant to comply with applicable laws and the rules and regulations of self-regulatory organizations; (iv) any actions of such AP Indemnified Party in reliance upon any instructions issued in accordance with the Procedures believed by the AP Indemnified Party to be genuine and to have been given by the Authorized Participant; or (v) (A) any representation by the Authorized Participant, its employees or its agents or other representatives about the Shares, any AP Indemnified Party, the Trust or any Fund that is not consistent with the Trust’s then-current Prospectus made in connection with the offer or the solicitation of an offer to buy or sell Shares and (B) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any research reports, marketing material and sales literature described in Section 12(b) or any alleged

D-5

omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading to the extent that such statement or omission relates to the Shares, any AP Indemnified Party, the Trust or any Fund, unless, in either case, such representation, statement or omission was made or included by the Authorized Participant at the written direction of the Managing Owner or is based upon any omission or alleged omission by the Managing Owner to state a material fact in connection with such representation, statement or omission necessary to make such representation, statement or omission not misleading.

(b) The Managing Owner hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Authorized Participant, its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents, and each person, if any, who controls such persons within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act (each, a “Managing Owner Indemnified Party”) from and against any losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and the reasonable cost of investigation) incurred by such Managing Owner Indemnified Party as a result of (i) any breach by the Managing Owner of any provision of this Agreement that relates to the Managing Owner; (ii) any failure on the part of the Managing Owner to perform any obligation of the Managing Owner set forth in this Agreement; (iii) any failure by the Managing Owner to comply with applicable laws; or (iv) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the registration statement of the Trust as originally filed with the SEC or in any amendment thereof, or in any prospectus, or in any amendment thereof or supplement thereto, or arising out of or based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, except those statements in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus based on information furnished in writing by or on behalf of the Authorized Participant expressly for use in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus.

(c) This Section 8 shall not apply to the extent any such losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses are incurred as a result of or in connection with any gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of the AP Indemnified Party or the Managing Owner Indemnified Party, as the case may be. The term “affiliate” in this Section 8 shall include, with respect to any person, entity or organization, any other person, entity or organization which directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by or is under common control with such person, entity or organization.

(d) If the indemnification provided for in this Section 8 is unavailable to an indemnified party under Sections 8(a) or 8(b) or insufficient to hold an indemnified party harmless in respect of any losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses referred to therein, then each applicable indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Managing Owner, the Trust and each Fund, on the one hand, and by the Authorized Participant, on the other hand, from the services provided hereunder or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but also the relative fault of the Managing Owner, the Trust and each Fund, on the one hand, and of the Authorized Participant, on the other hand, in connection with, to the extent applicable, the statements or omissions which resulted in such losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable

D-6

considerations. The relative benefits received by the Managing Owner, the Trust and each Fund, on the one hand, and the Authorized Participant, on the other hand, shall be deemed to be in the same respective proportions as the amount of cash transferred to each Fund under this Agreement on the one hand (expressed in dollars) bears to the amount of economic benefit received by the Authorized Participant in connection with this Agreement on the other hand. To the extent applicable, the relative fault of the Managing Owner on the one hand and of the Authorized Participant on the other shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission relates to information supplied by the Managing Owner or by the Authorized Participant and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses referred to in this Section 8(d) shall be deemed to include any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with investigating, preparing to defend or defending any action, suit or proceeding (each a “Proceeding”) related to such losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses.

(e) The Managing Owner and the Authorized Participant agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 8 were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in Section 8(d) above. The Authorized Participant shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the total price at which the applicable Shares created by the Authorized Participant (for avoidance of doubt, in an amount equal to the Creation Basket Capital Contribution) and distributed to the public exceeds the amount of any damages which the Authorized Participant has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

(f) The indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section 8 shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Authorized Participant, its partners, stockholders, members, directors, officers, employees and or any person (including each partner, stockholder, member, director, officer or employee of such person) who controls the Authorized Participant within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act, or by or on behalf of the Managing Owner, its partners, stockholders, members, managers, directors, officers, employees or any person who controls the Managing Owner within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act, and shall survive any termination of this Agreement. The Managing Owner and the Authorized Participant agree promptly to notify each other of the commencement of any Proceeding against it and, in the case of the Managing Owner, against any of the Managing Owner’s officers or directors, in connection with the issuance and sale of the Shares or in connection with the Registration Statement or the Prospectus.

Section 9. (a) Limitation of Liability. Neither the Managing Owner nor the Authorized Participant shall be liable to each other or to any other person, including any party claiming by, through or on behalf of the Authorized Participant, for any losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses arising out of any mistake or error in data or other information provided to any of them by each other or any other person or out of any interruption or delay in the electronic means of communications used by them.

D-7

(b) Tax Liability. The Authorized Participant shall be responsible for the payment of any transfer tax, sales or use tax, stamp tax, recording tax, value added tax and any other similar tax or government charge applicable to the creation or redemption of any Basket made pursuant to this Agreement, regardless of whether or not such tax or charge is imposed directly on the Authorized Participant. To the extent the Managing Owner, the Trust or any Fund is required by law to pay any such tax or charge, the Authorized Participant agrees to promptly indemnify such party for any such payment, together with any applicable penalties, additions to tax or interest thereon.

(c) Fund Liability. In accordance with Section 3.7 of the Trust Agreement, the Authorized Participant agrees and consents (the “Consent”) to look solely to the assets (the “Fund Assets”) of the particular Fund in controversy and to the Managing Owner and its assets for payment in respect of any claim against or obligation of such Fund. The Fund Assets include only those funds and other assets that are paid, held or distributed to the Trust on account of and for the benefit of that particular Fund, including, without limitation, funds delivered to the Trust for the purchase of Shares in such Fund. In furtherance of the Consent, the Authorized Participant agrees that any debts, liabilities, obligations, indebtedness, expenses and claims of any nature and of all kinds and descriptions (collectively, “Claims”) against a Fund incurred, contracted for or otherwise existing shall be subject to the following limitations:

  1. the Claims of the Authorized Participant shall only be asserted and enforceable against a particular Fund, the Fund Assets of such Fund and the Managing Owner and its assets and such Claims shall not be asserted or enforceable for any reason whatsoever against any other series, the Trust generally or any of their respective assets;
  2. If the Claims of the Authorized Participant against a Fund are secured in whole or in part, the Authorized Participant hereby waives (under section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. § 1111(b)) any right to have any deficiency claims (which deficiency claims may arise in the event such security is inadequate to satisfy such Claims) treated as unsecured claims against the Trust or any series (other than the Fund against which the Claim is made), as the case may be; and
  3. the foregoing Consent shall apply at all times notwithstanding that the Claims are satisfied and notwithstanding that the agreements in respect of such Claims are terminated, rescinded or canceled.

Section 10. Acknowledgment. The Authorized Participant acknowledges receipt of a (i) copy of the Trust Agreement and (ii) the current Prospectus of the Trust and represents that it has reviewed and understands such documents.

Section 11. Effectiveness and Termination. Upon the execution of this Agreement by the parties hereto, this Agreement shall become effective in this form as of the date first set forth above, and may be terminated at any time by any party upon thirty (30) days prior written notice

D-8

to the other parties unless earlier terminated: (i) in accordance with Section 2(a); (ii) upon notice to the Authorized Participant by the Managing Owner in the event of a breach by the Authorized Participant of this Agreement or the procedures described or incorporated herein; (iii) immediately in the circumstances described in Section 17(j); or (iv) at such time as the Trust is terminated pursuant to the Trust Agreement. Termination of this Agreement by any Fund shall not constitute termination by any other Fund unless separate notice is given.

Section 12. Marketing Materials; Representations Regarding Shares; Identification in Registration Statement.

(a) The Authorized Participant represents, warrants and covenants that (i), without the written consent of the Managing Owner, the Authorized Participant will not make, or permit any of its representatives to make, any representations concerning the Shares or any AP Indemnified Party other than representations contained (A) in the then-current Prospectus of the Trust, (B) in printed information approved by the Managing Owner as information supplemental to such Prospectus or (C) in any promotional materials or sales literature furnished to the Authorized Participant by the Managing Owner, and (ii) the Authorized Participant will not furnish or cause to be furnished to any person or display or publish any information or material relating to the Shares, any AP Indemnified Person, any Fund or the Trust that are not consistent with the Trust’s then current Prospectus. Copies of the then current Prospectus of the Trust and any such printed supplemental information will be supplied by the Managing Owner to the Authorized Participant in reasonable quantities upon request.

(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Authorized Participant may without the written approval of the Managing Owner prepare and circulate in the regular course of its business research reports, marketing material and sales literature that includes information, opinions or recommendations relating to the Shares (i) for public dissemination, provided that such research reports, marketing material or sales literature compare the relative merits and benefits of Shares with other products; and (ii) for internal use by the Authorized Participant. The Authorized Participant will file all such research reports, marketing material and sales literature related to the Shares with FINRA to the extent required by the NASD Conduct Rules.

(c) The Authorized Participant hereby agrees that for the term of this Agreement the Managing Owner may deliver the then-current Prospectus, and any supplements or amendments thereto or recirculation thereof, to the Authorized Participant in Portable Document Format (“PDF”) via electronic mail in lieu of delivering the Prospectus in paper form. The Authorized Participant may revoke the foregoing agreement at any time by delivering written notice to the Managing Owner and, whether or not such agreement is in effect, the Authorized Participant may, at any time, request reasonable quantities of the Prospectus, and any supplements or amendments thereto or recirculation thereof, in paper form from the Managing Owner. The Authorized Participant acknowledges that it has the capability to access, view, save and print material provided to it in PDF and that it will incur no appreciable extra costs by receiving the Prospectus in PDF instead of in paper form. The Managing Owner will when requested by the Authorized Participant make available at no cost the software and technical assistance necessary to allow the Authorized Participant to access, view and print the PDF version of the Prospectus.

D-9

(d) For as long as this Agreement is effective, the Authorized Participant agrees to be identified as an authorized participant of a Fund (i) in the section of the Prospectus included within the Registration Statement entitled “Creation and Redemption of Shares” and in any other section as may be required by the SEC and (ii) on each Fund’s website. Upon the termination of this Agreement, (i) during the period prior to when the Managing Owner qualifies and in its sole discretion elects to file on Form S-3, the Managing Owner will remove such identification from the Prospectus in the amendment of the Registration Statement next occurring after the date of the termination of this Agreement and, during the period after when the Managing Owner qualifies and in its sole discretion elects to file on Form S-3, the Managing Owner will promptly file a current report on Form 8-K indicating the withdrawal of the Authorized Participant as an authorized participant of a Fund and (ii) the Managing Owner will promptly update each Fund’s website (as applicable) to remove any identification of the Authorized Participant as an authorized participant of such Fund.

Section 13. Certain Covenants of the Managing Owner. The Managing Owner, on its own behalf and as sponsor of each Fund, covenants and agrees:

(a) to notify the Authorized Participant promptly of the happening of any event during the term of this Agreement which could require the making of any change in the Prospectus then being used so that the Prospectus would not include an untrue statement of material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading, and, during such time, to prepare and furnish, at the expense of each Fund, as appropriate, to the Authorized Participant promptly such amendments or supplements to such Prospectus as may be necessary to reflect any such change;

(b) to furnish to the Authorized Participant, at each time (i) a new Registration Statement is filed to register additional Shares in reliance on Rule 429 under the 1933 Act, and (ii) there is financial information incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement or the Prospectus, an opinion of either (x) Sidley Austin LLP, counsel for the Managing Owner, or (y) special Delaware counsel for the Managing Owner addressed to the Authorized Participant and dated such dates in form and substance satisfactory to the Authorized Participant, stating that:

  1. each Fund is validly existing as a series of the Trust, a statutory trust under the Delaware Statutory Trust Act, as described in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus, and the Trust has all power and authority to issue and deliver the Shares as contemplated therein and to execute and deliver this Agreement;
  2. the Managing Owner has been duly formed and is validly existing as a limited liability company in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware, with full power and authority to conduct its business as described in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus and to execute and deliver this Agreement;
  3. the Managing Owner is duly qualified and is in good standing in each jurisdiction where the conduct of its business requires such qualification;

D-10

  4. this Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Managing Owner;

  7. the Registration Statement and the Prospectus (except as to the financial statements and schedules and other financial information contained therein, as to which such counsel need express no opinion) as of their respective effective or issue dates complied as to form in all material respects with the requirements of the 1933 Act;
  8. the Registration Statement has become effective under the 1933 Act and, to such counsel’s knowledge, no stop order proceedings with respect thereto are pending or threatened under the 1933 Act and any required filing of the Prospectus and any supplement thereto pursuant to Rule 424 under the 1933 Act has been made in the manner and within the time period required by such Rule 424;
  9. no approval, authorization, consent or order of or filing with any federal, or Delaware governmental or regulatory commission, board, body, authority or agency is required in connection with the issuance and sale of the Shares and consummation by the Trust and the Managing Owner of the transactions contemplated in the Prospectus other than registration of the Shares under the 1933 Act (except such counsel need express no opinion as to any necessary qualification under the state securities or blue sky laws of any state or the laws of any jurisdictions outside the United States);
  10. the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Managing Owner, the issuance and delivery of the Shares by the Trust and the consummation by the Managing Owner on behalf of the Trust of the transactions contemplated hereby do not and will not conflict with, result in any breach or violation of or constitute a default under (nor constitute any event which with notice, lapse of time or both would result in any breach or violation of or constitute a default under) the limited liability company agreement of the Managing Owner or the Trust Agreement, or any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, bank loan or credit agreement or other evidence of indebtedness, or any license, lease, contract or other agreement or instrument known to such counsel (based on a certificate of an officer of the Managing Owner) to which the Managing Owner or the Trust is a party or by which the Managing Owner or the Trust or any of their respective properties may be bound or affected, or any federal, or Delaware law, regulation or rule or any decree, judgment or order applicable to the Managing Owner or the Trust (based, in the case of any decree, judgment or order, on a certificate of an officer of the Managing Owner);

  11. to such counsel’s knowledge, neither the Managing Owner nor the Trust is in breach or violation of or in default under (nor has any event occurred which with notice, lapse of time, or both would result in any breach or violation of, or constitute a default under) their respective constitutive documents, or any federal or Delaware law, regulation or rule applicable to the Managing Owner or the Trust;
  12. to such counsel’s knowledge, there are no affiliate transactions, off-balance sheet transactions, contracts, licenses, agreements, leases or documents of a character which are required to be described in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus or to be filed as an exhibit to the Registration Statement which have not been so described or filed;
  13. to such counsel’s knowledge, there are no actions, suits, claims, investigations or proceedings pending or threatened to which the Managing Owner is or would be a party or to which any of its properties is or would be subject at law or in equity, before or by any federal, state, local or foreign governmental or regulatory commission, board, body, authority or agency which are required to be described in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus but are not so described;
  14. the Trust is not and, after giving effect to the offering and sale of the Shares, will not be required to be registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”); and
  15. the information in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus under the headings “Material U. S. Federal Income Tax Considerations,” and “Description of the Shares and the Master Fund Units; the Funds; Certain Material Terms of the Trust Declarations,” insofar as such statements constitute a summary of documents or matters of law, are accurate in all material respects and present fairly the information required to be shown.

In addition, such counsel shall state that such counsel has participated in conferences with officers and other representatives of the Managing Owner, representatives of the independent public accountants of each Fund and representatives of the Authorized Participant at which the contents of the Registration Statement and the Prospectus were discussed and, although such counsel is not passing upon and does not assume responsibility for the accuracy, completeness or fairness of the statements contained in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus (except as and to the extent stated in subparagraphs (6) and (15) above), on the basis of the foregoing nothing has come to the attention of such counsel that causes them to believe that the Registration Statement or any amendment thereto at the time such Registration Statement or amendment became effective contained an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, or that the Prospectus or any supplement thereto at the date of such Prospectus or such supplement, and at the time of purchase of the Shares by the Authorized Participant

D-12

hereunder, contained an untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading (it being understood that such counsel need express no opinion with respect to the financial statements and schedules and other financial information, statistical data, the description of the Index or any performance information relating to the Index, the Trust or any other account included in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus).

(c) to deliver to the Authorized Participant, at each time (i) the Registration Statement or the Prospectus is amended or supplemented by the filing of a post-effective amendment, (ii) a new Registration Statement is filed to register additional Shares in reliance on Rule 429 under the 1933 Act, and (iii) there is financial information incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement or the Prospectus, a certification by duly authorized officers of the Managing Owner in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D.

In addition, any certificate signed by any officer of the Managing Owner and delivered to the Authorized Participant or counsel for the Authorized Participant pursuant hereto shall be deemed to be a representation and warranty by the Managing Owner as to matters covered thereby to the Authorized Participant.

Section 14. Third Party Beneficiaries. Each AP Indemnified Party and Managing Owner Indemnified Party, to the extent it is not a party to this Agreement, is a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement (each, a “Third Party Beneficiary”) and may proceed directly against any party hereto (including by bringing proceedings against the parties hereto in its own name) to enforce any obligation of such party under this Agreement which directly or indirectly benefits such Third Party Beneficiary.

Section 15. Force Majeure. No party to this Agreement shall incur any liability for any delay in performance, or for the non-performance, of any of its obligations under this Agreement by reason of any cause beyond its reasonable control. This includes any act of God or war or terrorism, any breakdown, malfunction or failure of transmission in connection with or other unavailability of any wire, communication or computer facilities, any transport, port, or airport disruption, industrial action, acts and regulations and rules of any governmental or supra-national bodies or authorities or regulatory or self-regulatory organization or failure of any such body, authority or organization for any reason, to perform its obligations.

Section 16. Ambiguous Instructions. If a Purchase Order Subscription Agreement or a Redemption Order otherwise in good form contains order terms that differ from the information provided in the telephone call at the time of issuance of the applicable order number, the Managing Owner will attempt to contact one of the Authorized Persons of the Authorized Participant to request confirmation of the terms of the Order. If an Authorized Person confirms the terms as they appear in the Order, then the Order will be accepted and processed. If an Authorized Person contradicts the Order terms, the Order will be deemed invalid, and a corrected Order must be received by the Managing Owner, as the case may be, not later than the earlier of: (i) within 15 minutes of such contact with the Authorized Person; or (ii) 45 minutes after the Order Cut-Off Time. If the Managing Owner is not able to contact an Authorized Person, then the Order shall be accepted and processed in accordance with its terms notwithstanding any

D-13

inconsistency from the terms of the telephone information. In the event that an Order contains terms that are illegible, the Order will be deemed invalid and the Managing Owner will attempt to contact one of the Authorized Persons of the Authorized Participant to request retransmission of the Order. A corrected Order must be received by the Managing Owner not later than the earlier of (i) within 15 minutes of such contact with the Authorized Person or (ii) 45 minutes after the Order Cut-Off Time, as the case may be.

Section 17. Miscellaneous.

(a) Amendment and Modification. This Agreement, the Procedures attached as Attachment A and the Exhibits hereto may be amended, modified or supplemented by the Trust and the Managing Owner, without consent of any Beneficial Owner or Authorized Participant from time to time by the following procedure. After the amendment, modification or supplement has been agreed to, the Managing Owner will mail a copy of the proposed amendment, modification or supplement to the Authorized Participant. For the purposes of this Agreement, mail will be deemed received by the recipient thereof on the third (3rd) day following the deposit of such mail into the United States postal system. Within ten (10) calendar days after its deemed receipt, the amendment, modification or supplement will become part of this Agreement, the Attachments or the Exhibits, as the case may be, in accordance with its terms. If at any time there is any material amendment, modification or supplement of any Participant Agreement of the Trust (other than this Agreement), the Managing Owner will promptly mail a copy of such amendment, modification or supplement to the Authorized Participant.

(b) Waiver of Compliance. Any failure of any of the parties to comply with any obligation, covenant, agreement or condition herein may be waived by the party entitled to the benefits thereof only by a written instrument signed by the party granting such waiver, but any such written waiver, or the failure to insist upon strict compliance with any obligation, covenant, agreement or condition herein, shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other failure.

(c) Notices. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, all notices required or permitted to be given pursuant to this Agreement shall be given in writing and delivered by personal delivery, by postage prepaid registered or certified United States first class mail, return receipt requested, by nationally recognized overnight courier (delivery confirmation received) or by telex, telegram or telephonic facsimile or similar means of same day delivery (transmission confirmation received), with a confirming copy regular mail, postage prepaid. For avoidance of doubt, notices may not be given or transmitted by electronic mail. Unless otherwise notified in writing, all notices to a Fund shall be given or sent to the Managing Owner. All notices shall be directed to the address or telephone or facsimile numbers indicated below the signature line of the parties on the signature page hereof.

(d) Successors and Assigns. This Agreement and all of the provisions hereof shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

D-14

(e) Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder shall be assigned by any party without the prior written consent of the other parties, except that any entity into which a party hereto may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated or any entity resulting from any merger, conversion, or consolidation to which such party hereunder shall be a party, or any entity succeeding to all or substantially all of the business of the party, shall be the successor of the party under this Agreement and except that the Managing Owner may delegate its obligations hereunder to the Distributor, the Marketing Agent or the Administrator by notice to the Authorized Participant. The party resulting from any such merger, conversion, consolidation or succession shall notify the other parties hereto of the change. Any purported assignment in violation of the provisions hereof shall be null and void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement shall be automatically assigned to any successor trustee or Managing Owner at such time such successor qualifies as a successor trustee or Managing Owner under the terms of the Trust Agreement.

(f) Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware (regardless of the laws that might otherwise govern under applicable Delaware conflict of laws principles) as to all matters, including matters of validity, construction, effect, performance and remedies. Each party hereto irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York and of any federal court located in the Borough of Manhattan in such State in connection with any action, suit or other proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any action taken or omitted hereunder, and waives any claim of forum non conveniens and any objections as to laying of venue. Each party further waives personal service of any summons, complaint or other process and agrees that service thereof may be made by certified or registered mail directed to such party at such party’s address for purposes of notices hereunder.

(g) Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed to be an original copy of this Agreement and all of which, when taken together, will be deemed to constitute one and the same agreement, and it shall not be necessary in making proof of this Agreement as to any party hereto to produce or account for more than one such counterpart executed and delivered by such party.

(h) Interpretation. The article and section headings contained in this Agreement are solely for the purpose of reference, are not part of the agreement of the parties and shall not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

(i) Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the Trust Agreement, along with any other agreement or instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement and the Trust Agreement, supersede all prior agreements and understandings between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, provided, however, that the Authorized Participant shall not be deemed by this provision to be a party to the Trust Agreement.

(j) Severance. If any provision of this Agreement is held by any court or any act, regulation, rule or decision of any other governmental or supra national body or authority or regulatory or self-regulatory organization to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, it shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable only to the extent so held and shall not affect the validity, legality or enforceability of the other provisions of this Agreement and this Agreement will be construed as if such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein, unless the Managing Owner determines in its discretion that the provision of this

D-15

Agreement that was held invalid, illegal or unenforceable does affect the validity, legality or enforceability of one or more other provisions of this Agreement, and that this Agreement should not be continued without the provision that was held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, and in that case, upon the Managing Owner’s notification of the trustee of such a determination, this Agreement shall immediately terminate and the Managing Owner will so notify the Authorized Participant immediately.

(k) No Strict Construction. The language used in this Agreement will be deemed to be the language chosen by the parties to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction will be applied against any party.

(l) Survival. Sections 8 (Indemnification) and 14 (Third Party Beneficiaries) hereof shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

(m) Other Usages. The following usages shall apply in interpreting this Agreement: (i) references to a governmental or quasi-governmental agency, authority or instrumentality shall also refer to a regulatory body that succeeds to the functions of such agency, authority or instrumentality; and (ii) “including” means “including, but not limited to.”

PURCHASER’S REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES AND

POWER OF ATTORNEY

1. CFTC Registration Status. The Authorized Participant either is not required to be registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) or to be a member of the National Futures Association (“NFA”), or, if required to be so registered, is duly registered with the CFTC and is a member in good standing of the NFA. The Authorized Participant agrees to supply the Managing Owner with such information as the Managing Owner may reasonably request in order to verify the foregoing representation. Vehicles for collective investment which acquire Shares may, as a result, themselves become “commodity pools” within the intent of applicable CFTC and NFA rules, and their sponsors, accordingly, will be required to register as “commodity pool operators.”

2. Disclosure Document. The Authorized Participant has received the Trust’s Prospectus which constitutes its CFTC Disclosure Document.

3. Monthly Report. If trading for a Fund has commenced, the Authorized Participant has obtained a copy of the most recent monthly report from the applicable Fund’s website at www.dbfunds.db.com.

4. Power of Attorney. In connection with the Authorized Participant’s acceptance of an interest in a Fund, the Authorized Participant does hereby irrevocably constitute and appoint the Managing Owner, and its successors and assigns, as its true and lawful Attorney-in-Fact, with full power of substitution, in my name, place and stead, in the execution, acknowledgment, filing and publishing of Trust or Fund documents, including, but not limited to, the following: (i) Any certificates and other instruments, including but not limited to, any applications for authority to do business and amendments thereto, which the Managing Owner deems appropriate to qualify or continue the Trust as a business or statutory trust in the jurisdictions in which the Trust may conduct business, so long as such qualifications and continuations are in accordance with the terms of the Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust and Trust Agreement of the Trust (the “Trust Agreement”) or any amendment hereto, or which may be required to be filed by the Trust, a Fund or the Shareholders of a Fund under the laws of any jurisdiction; (ii) Any instrument which may be required to be filed by the Trust under the laws of any state or by any governmental agency, or which the Managing Owner deems advisable to file; and (iii) The Trust Agreement and any documents which may be required to effect an amendment to the Trust Agreement approved under the terms of the Trust Agreement, and the continuation of the Trust, the admission of the signer of the Power of Attorney as a Limited Owner of a Fund or of others as additional or substituted Limited Owners, or the termination of the Trust, provided such continuation, admission or termination is in accordance with the terms of the Trust Agreement. The Power of Attorney granted hereby shall be deemed to be coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable and shall survive, and shall not be affected by, the Authorized Participant’s subsequent insolvency or dissolution or any delivery by the Authorized Participant of an assignment of the whole or any portion of the Authorized Participant’s Units.

POWERSHARES DB MULTI-SECTOR COMMODITY TRUST

PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT

ATTACHMENT A

PROCEDURES

CREATION AND REDEMPTION OF SHARES

Scope of Procedures and Overview

These procedures (the “Procedures”) describe the processes by which one or more Baskets of PowerShares DB Energy Fund shares, PowerShares DB Oil Fund shares, PowerShares DB Precious Metals Fund shares, PowerShares DB Gold Fund shares, PowerShares DB Silver Fund shares, PowerShares DB Base Metals Fund shares and PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund shares (individually and collectively, the “Shares”) issuable by PowerShares DB Multi-Sector Commodity Trust (the “Trust”) with respect to PowerShares DB Energy Fund, PowerShares DB Oil Fund, PowerShares DB Precious Metals Fund, PowerShares DB Gold Fund, PowerShares DB Silver Fund, PowerShares DB Base Metals Fund and PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund, respectively, (individually, a “Fund” and collectively, the “Funds”) may be purchased or, once Shares have been issued, redeemed by an Authorized Participant (a “Participant”). Shares may be created or redeemed only in blocks of 200,000 Shares (each such block, a “Basket”) for each Fund.

Capitalized terms used in these Procedures without further definition have the meanings assigned to them in the Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust and Trust Agreement of the Trust, a Delaware statutory trust with multiple series, including the Funds (the “Trust Agreement”). The Trust Agreement is dated as of November 21, 2006, and as amended from time-to-time, between Wilmington Trust Company, as trustee of the Trust (the “Trustee”) DB Commodity Services LLC, as managing owner (the “Managing Owner”) and the Unitholders party thereto from time to time or the Participant Agreement entered into by each Participant with the Trust with respect to each Fund and the Managing Owner.

For purposes of these Procedures, a “Business Day” means a day other than Saturday, Sunday or other day when banks and/or securities exchanges in the City of New York or the City of Wilmington are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to close.

“Order Cut-Off Time” means 10:00 am, New York time, on each Business Day.

Baskets are issued pursuant to the Prospectus, which will be delivered by the Managing Owner to each Participant prior to its execution of the Participant Agreement, and are issued and redeemed in accordance with the Trust Agreement and the Participant Agreement. Baskets may be issued and redeemed on any Business Day by the Managing Owner in exchange for the Creation Basket Capital Contribution, which the Managing Owner receives from Participants or Redemption Distributions to Participants, in each case on behalf of the Trust. Participants will be required to pay a nonrefundable per order transaction fee of $500 to the Managing Owner (the “Transaction Fee”).

Each Participant is responsible for ensuring that the Creation Basket Capital Contribution it intends to transfer to a Fund in exchange for Creation Baskets is available for transfer to such Fund in the manner and at the times described in these Procedures.

Upon acceptance of the Participant Agreement by the Managing Owner, the Managing Owner will assign a personal identification number (a “PIN number”) to each Authorized Person authorized to act for the Participant. This will allow the Participant through its Authorized Person(s) to place Purchase Order Subscription Agreement(s) or Redemption Order(s) for Baskets.

Important Notes:

  •  

Any Order is subject to rejection by the Managing Owner for the reasons set forth in the Trust Agreement or the Participant Agreement.

  •  

All Orders are subject to the provisions of the Trust Agreement and the Participant Agreement relating to unclear or ambiguous instructions.

CREATION PROCESS

An order to purchase one or more Creation Baskets placed by a Participant with the Managing Owner by a telephone call placed by the Order Cut-Off Time on a Business Day (such day, “Purchase Order Subscription Date”) results in the issuance and delivery of Creation Baskets at noon, New York time, on the Business Day immediately following the Purchase Order Subscription Date if the Managing Owner has received:

  •

2. If the Managing Owner has not received the Redemption Order Form from the Participant within 15 minutes after the Managing Owner receives the phone call from the Participant referenced in item (1) above, the Managing Owner places a phone call to the Participant to inquire about the status of the Order.

5. If the Managing Owner rejects a Redemption Order pursuant to the Trust Agreement or the Participant Agreement, the Managing Owner will notify the Participant whose Redemption Order was rejected and the amount of cash contained in the rejected Redemption Order.
6. By the “Redemption Settlement Time,” if the Managing Owner’s account at the Depository has by such time been credited with the Redemption Baskets being tendered for redemption and the Managing Owner has by such time received the Transaction Fee, the Managing Owner shall deliver the Redemption Distribution through the Depository to the account of the Participant as recorded on the book entry system of the Depository.
