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.

About the Index

The Solactive Metaverse Theme Index is designed to track the performance of companies that have, or are expected to have, significant exposure to the provision of products and/or services that contribute to the metaverse industry, as determined by the index methodology.

Companies must generate at least 50% of their revenues from metaverse-related business operations to be eligible for the index, as determined by the index provider. To be considered for the index, the index provider uses an automated scan of company filings and other public information to identify companies with exposure to the metaverse industry, based on related keywords. Each company identified receives a score that reflects its exposure to the metaverse industry. Companies without relevant business operations are removed.

Then, the index provider ranks the remaining companies and the top 40 companies, as determined by ranking and certain turnover requirements, are selected into the index.

Selected companies are weighted using a modified equal weight approach, with companies having relatively higher scores receiving additional weight. The ten largest companies, by market capitalization, also receive additional weight in the index. The final weight for any single company is limited to 4.5%.

Companies must be listed on the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq and meet certain market capitalization and FactSet classification requirements. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced semiannually. The 4.5% weight cap is applied at each semiannual rebalance and at each calendar month when there is not a rebalance.

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.

Diversification may not protect against market risk.

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.

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.

Registered Investment Companies are required by the IRS to distribute substantially all of their income and capital gains to shareholders at least annually. For specific tax advice, we recommend you speak with a qualified tax professional.

This fund may be subject to additional risks associated with the semiconductor, software, media and entertainment, and retailing industries. A more complete discussion of risks is found in the prospectus.
