PLEASE NOTE: The Funds are benchmarked to an Index of VIX futures contracts. The Funds are not benchmarked to the widely referenced Cboe Volatility Index, commonly known as the “VIX.” The Funds should be expected to perform very differently from the VIX or one and one-half times (1.5x) or one-half the inverse (-0.5x) of the performance of the VIX, as applicable.

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.

This fund's daily objective changed from 2x to 1.5x effective as of the close of business on 2/27/2018. All returns prior to 2/28/2018 reflect the 2x daily objective multiple.

Index

About the Index

The S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index measures the returns of a portfolio of monthly VIX futures contracts that rolls positions from first-month contracts into second-month contracts on a daily basis. The index maintains a weighted average of one month to expiration.

VIX futures contracts price the market's view of the value of the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) on the expiration dates of such futures contracts. The VIX measures expected volatility of the S&P 500 over the next 30 days and is calculated based on the price of a constantly changing portfolio of options on the S&P 500. The VIX is not directly investable.

Unlike other asset classes that have tended to increase in price over long periods of time, the level of the VIX has tended to revert to a long-term average over time. As such, any gains from investments in VIX futures contracts may be constrained and subject to unexpected reversals as the VIX reverts to its long-term average. VIX futures indexes have historically reflected significant costs associated with rolling VIX futures contracts on a daily basis. These costs can consistently reduce returns over time. VIX futures indexes can be highly volatile.

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 leveraged ProShares ETF seeks a return that is 1.5x 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.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results.

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.

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

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

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Leveraged 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. Please see their summary and full prospectuses for a more complete description of risks.

There are considerable risks related to investing in ETFs benchmarked to VIX futures indexes, and ProShares Volatility ETFs are not suitable for all investors. VIX futures indexes can be highly volatile, and ETFs benchmarked to them may experience large losses. Investors could potentially lose the full value of their investment over periods even as short as one day. Many factors may contribute to the volatility of VIX futures indexes, including, but not limited to: economic, political or regulatory events that affect the level of the S&P 500, the VIX, VIX futures contracts or other related financial instruments; interest rates; inflation rates or inflation expectations; certain activities within equity derivatives markets; and S&P 500 trading disruptions. ProShares Volatility ETFs are generally intended for short-term investment horizons, and investors holding shares over longer-term periods may be subject to increased risk of loss. The level of the VIX has tended to revert to a long-term average over time. As such, the potential upside of long or short exposure to VIX futures contracts may be constrained and subject to significant and unexpected reversals. VIX futures indexes have historically reflected significant costs associated with rolling VIX futures contracts on a daily basis, which can consistently reduce returns for ETFs benchmarked to the indexes.
