Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

iShares Silver Trust (the “Registrant”) issues and redeems units of beneficial interest (or “Shares”) representing fractional undivided beneficial interests in its net assets only in exchange for silver, only in aggregations of 50,000 Shares or integral multiples thereof (each, a “Basket”), and only in transactions with registered broker-dealers that have previously entered into an agreement with the Registrant governing the terms and conditions of such issuance (such broker-dealers, the “Authorized Participants”). The Trust is administered by The Bank of New York Mellon (the “Trustee”) and JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., London branch (the “Custodian”) is responsible for the safekeeping of silver owned by the Registrant.

 

The Registrant entered into the following amendments and restatements of its operating agreements to make certain operational updates to the agreements, including most significantly to allow Authorized Participants to order, or surrender for redemption, Baskets using the electronic order system of the Trustee:

The Registrant's affiliates have engaged in, and may in the future engage in, various commercial dealings in the ordinary course of business with the parties to the Agreements. Such parties have received, or may in the future receive, customary fees and commissions for these transactions.

 

The foregoing description of the amendments to the Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreements, which have been filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1, Exhibit 4.2 and Exhibit 10.1.
