The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Market price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. ET (when NAV is normally determined for most funds) and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Your brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For standardized returns and performance data current to the most recent month end, see above.

Index

About the Index

The Bloomberg Commodity Balanced WTI Crude Oil Index (ticker: BCBCLI Index) aims to track the performance of 3 separate contract schedules for WTI Crude Oil futures. One third of the index follows a monthly roll schedule, the second third of the index follows a June annual roll schedule, while the remaining third follows a December annual roll schedule.

The Index weights are equally reset semi-annually in the months of March and September on close of the first Business Day. To maintain the long position of the basket, contracts are ‘rolled’ from the expiring futures contract to a new contract farther down the futures curve with a longer expiry date. All commodities will roll on the second and the third Business Day of each calendar month.

For the total return table above, since inception returns are cumulative for funds less than one year old; otherwise, returns are annualized. Market returns are based on the composite closing price and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. The listing date is typically one or more days after the fund inception date. Therefore, NAV is used to calculate market returns prior to the listing date.

The expense ratio for certain funds includes a contractual fee waiver that results in a lower net expense ratio for some or all periods shown. For information about this ETF’s fees, please see above.

Expense ratio does not include brokerage commissions and related fees paid by the fund.

Holdings are subject to change. ProShares may invest in financial instruments (including derivatives) that, in combination, should have daily price return characteristics similar to the fund's benchmark.

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 its underlying benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, holding periods of greater than one day can result in returns that are significantly different than the target return, and 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 as frequently as daily. Investors should consult the prospectus for further details on the calculation of the returns and the risks associated with investing in this product.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Short ProShares ETFs are non-diversified and entail certain risks, including risk 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 rise. Please see their summary and full prospectuses for a more complete description of risks.

This fund generates a K-1 tax form.

Certain derivative instruments will subject the fund to counterparty risk and credit risk, which could result in significant losses for the fund.

There are additional risks related to commodity investments due to natural and technological factors such as depletion of known cost-effective sources of a commodity or severe weather and increases in availability created by new or improved equipment or processes.
