Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

Invesco PowerShares Capital Management LLC ("Invesco") is the managing owner of the PowerShares DB Multi-Sector Commodity Trust (the "Trust"), which is organized in seven separate series. 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 a "Fund" and collectively the "Funds") is a separate series of the Trust.

The Trust, each of the Funds, ALPS Distributors, Inc., a Colorado corporation and a registered broker-dealer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended ("ALPS"), and Invesco entered into a Distribution Services Agreement, effective February 23, 2015 (the "Distribution Services Agreement") pursuant to which ALPS provides certain distribution services to the Funds. ALPS Distributors also assists Invesco and The Bank of New York Mellon with certain functions and duties relating to distribution and marketing of the Funds, including reviewing and approving marketing materials.

The Distribution Services Agreement contains customary representations and warranties. The Distribution Services Agreement has an initial two-year term which renews automatically for successive one year periods thereafter and is terminable without penalty upon sixty (60) days' written notice. On April 20, 2016, Invesco provided ALPS Distributors with notice of intent to terminate the Distribution Services Agreement effective as of June 20, 2016 (the "Termination Date"). There are no termination penalties to be incurred by the Funds, Invesco or ALPS Distributors in connection with the early termination of the Distribution Services Agreement.

Invesco intends to engage Invesco Distributors, Inc., a registered broker-dealer and an affiliate of Invesco, to provide the Funds with the services currently provided by ALPS Distributors pursuant to the Distribution Services Agreement. Invesco expects to have a contract in place with Invesco Distributors, Inc. which will be effective as of the Termination Date.

The foregoing description is a summary, does not purport to be a complete description of the Distribution Services Agreement, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Distribution Services Agreement, a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Form 8-K filed by the Fund on February 25, 2015 and incorporated herein by reference.
