CAUTIONARY NOTE CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
The statements contained in this report that are not purely historical are forward-looking statements.  The Trust's forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding its expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding the future.  In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements.  The words "anticipates," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intends," "may," "might," "plan," "possible," "potential," "predicts," "project," "should," "would" and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements in this report may include, for example, statements about:
 
 
the gold industry, sources of and demand for gold bullion, and the performance of the gold market; and
 
 
the development of a secondary market for the Gold Deposit Receipts.
 
The forward-looking statements contained in this report are based on the Trust's current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on the Trust.  There can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Trust will be those that it has anticipated.  These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Trust's control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.  These risks and uncertainties include those factors described under the heading "Risk Factors" in the Trust’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-194144) filed with the SEC.  Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the Trust's assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. The Trust undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION
 
Item 1. 
Condensed Financial Statements (Unaudited)
 
On February 4, 2015, the Trust filed a final prospectus; however, the Trust has had no activities. As discussed in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” below, the Trust has no activities other than the issuance of Gold Deposit Receipts, which represent an interest in gold bullion. However, as of the date hereof, the Trust has not issued any Gold Deposit Receipts. As a result, we have omitted financial statements from this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
 
Item 2. 
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
Overview
 
The Trust is a business trust formed under the laws of the state of Delaware on December 10, 2013 pursuant to an interim trust agreement that was amended and restated by the Depositary Trust Agreement, dated December 1, 2014, by and among Bank of Montreal, as Initial Depositor, BMO Capital Markets Corp., as Placement Agent, The Bank of New York Mellon, as Trustee and BNY Mellon Trust of Delaware, as Delaware Trustee (the “Depositary Trust Agreement”). On February 4, 2015, the Trust filed a final prospectus; however, the Trust has had no activities.
 
The Vaulted Gold Bullion Trust holds gold bullion for the benefit of owners of Gold Deposit Receipts.  One receipt represents the undivided beneficial ownership of one troy ounce of gold bullion.  The trustee performs only administrative and ministerial acts.  The property of the Trust consists of the gold bullion and all monies or other property, if any, received by the trustee.  The Initial Depositor sells gold bullion to the Trust and arranges custodial services through its gold storage account.  There were no Gold Deposit Receipts outstanding during the three-month period covered by this report.
 
The Trust is not managed like a corporation or an active investment vehicle. It does not have any officers, directors, or employees and is administered by the Trustee pursuant to the Depositary Trust Agreement. The Trust has no activities other than the issuance of Gold Deposit Receipts, which represent an interest in gold bullion.  The expenses of the Trust are borne by the Initial Depositor.
 
The Trust is not registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and is not required to register under such Act. It will not hold or trade in commodity futures contracts, nor is it a commodity pool, or subject to regulation as a commodity pool operator or a commodity trading adviser in connection with issuing its Gold Deposit Receipts.
 
The fiscal year end for the Trust is October 31.
 
Gold Industry
 
The gold market may be classified into sectors. The Mining and Producer Sector includes mining companies that specialize in gold and silver production; mining companies that produce gold as a byproduct of other production (such as a copper or silver producer); scrap merchants; and recyclers. Bullion banks provide a variety of services to the gold market and its participants, thereby facilitating interactions between other parties.  The official sector encompasses the activities of the various central banking operations of gold-holding countries. The investment sector includes the investment and trading activities of both professional and private investors and speculators. These participants range from large hedge and mutual funds to day-traders on futures exchanges and retail-level coin collectors.  The fabrication and manufacturing sector represents all the commercial and industrial users of gold for whom gold is a daily part of their business. The jewelry industry is a large user of gold. Other industrial users of gold include the electronics and dental industries.

Historic Movements in the Price of Gold
 
As movements in the price of gold are expected to directly affect the price of the Gold Deposit Receipts, investors should understand what the recent movements in the price of gold have been. Investors, however, should also be aware that past movements in the gold price are not indicators of future movements.
 
The following chart provides historical background on the price of gold. The chart illustrates movements in the price of gold in U.S. dollars per ounce over the period from December 2003 through April 2015.


 
On February 2, 2015 and April 30, 2015, the price of gold was $1,272.50and $1,180.25 respectively.  As of May 29, 2015, the price of gold was $1,191.40 per ounce.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
The Trust is not aware of any trends, demands, commitments, events or uncertainties that are reasonably likely to result in material changes to its liquidity needs. In exchange for the Initial Depositor’s Fee, the Initial Depositor has agreed to assume the expenses incurred by the Trust.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
The Trust has no off-balance sheet arrangements.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
The Trust will prepare its financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The Trust intends to adopt the provisions of Topic 946, Investment Companies, and follow specialized accounting.  As a result of the adoption of this provision, the Trust will record its investment in gold at fair value and expects that there will be fluctuations in the value of investments based on changes in the price of gold.
 
Item 3. 
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
 
The Trust does not engage in transactions in foreign currencies which could expose the Trust or holders of Gold Deposit Receipts to any foreign currency related market risk. The Trust does not invest in any derivative financial instruments or long-term debt instruments.

Item 4. 
Controls and Procedures
 
The Trust maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and that such information is accumulated and communicated to an executive or senior officer of the Initial Depositor familiar with and responsible for supervising the Trust and its operations, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
Under the supervision and with the participation of an executive or senior officer of the Initial Depositor, the Initial Depositor conducted an evaluation of the Trust’s disclosure controls and procedures, as defined under Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e). Based on this evaluation, the designated officer of the Initial Depositor concluded that, as of April 30, 2015, the Trust’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective.
 
There have been no changes in the Trust’s or Initial Depositor’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the Trust’s fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2015 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Trust’s or Initial Depositor’s internal control over financial reporting.
