Important Information

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. These ProShares ETFs are subject to certain risks, including the risk that the funds may not track the performance of the index and that the funds’ market price may fluctuate, which may decrease performance. There is no guarantee any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective.

Investments in these industries are subject to risks associated with a developing industry as well as changing technology and there is no guarantee that these companies will be successful. A more complete discussion of risks is found in the prospectuses.

The index themes may not be the primary driver of company, index or fund performance. Companies in the index may have significant unrelated business lines, which could have a significant negative impact on company, index and fund performance.

These funds are non-diversified and concentrate their investments in certain sectors. Non-diversified and narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility.

Carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of ProShares before investing. This and other information can be found in their summary and full prospectuses. Read them carefully before investing.

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.
