UltraShort Bloomberg Natural Gas - KOLD UltraShort Bloomberg Natural Gas

ProShares UltraShort Bloomberg Natural Gas seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times the inverse (-2x) of the daily performance of the Bloomberg Natural Gas SubindexSM.

This fund is not an investment company regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and is not afforded its protections. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

This Short ProShares ETF seeks a return that is -2x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. These effects may be more pronounced in funds with larger or inverse multiples and in funds with volatile benchmarks. Investors should monitor their holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus.

Index/Benchmark Summary

The Bloomberg Natural Gas SubindexSM is intended to reflect the natural gas segment of the commodities market. The index consists of futures contracts on natural gas.

Unlike equities, which entitle the holder to a continuing stake in a corporation, commodity futures contracts specify a delivery date for an underlying physical commodity. The index measures the performance of commodity futures contracts, and, as the date for a futures contract comes due, the index replaces such contract with similar contracts with later expirations. The index thus is a "rolling" index.

The index is valued using the settlement prices for the underlying futures contracts. The index rolls its contracts over the course of 5 consecutive business days, starting on the 6th business day of the month. Each day, approximately 20% of each futures position that is included in the month's roll is rolled.
