Average Market Price** = (Yearly High + Yearly Low Price)/2

Dividend Yield = Dividends Per Share /Average Market Price**

Price Earnings Ratio = Average Market Price**/ Earnings Per Share

*Job Development Credits shall not be included as part of equity capital nor shall a deduction be made from earnings for a capital charge on these Job Development Credits in Schedule 1.
