All ETFs are required by the Internal Revenue Code to distribute substantially all of their income and capital gains to shareholders at least annually. ProShares plans to announce any fourth quarter income distributions separately.

Trading ProShares will also generate tax consequences and transaction expenses. The information contained herein is based on current tax laws, which may change in the future.

Shares of any ETF are generally bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

There is no guarantee any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. ProShares are generally non-diversified and each entails certain risks, which may include risks associated with the use of derivatives (swap agreements, futures contracts and similar instruments), imperfect benchmark correlation, leverage and market price variance, all of which can increase volatility and decrease performance. Short ProShares ETFs should lose money when their benchmarks or indexes rise. Please see their summary and full prospectuses for a more complete description of risks.
