HMJI

BetaPro Marijuana Companies Inverse ETF

Short Exposure to the North American Marijuana Sector

BetaPro Marijuana Companies Inverse ETF (HMJI) is designed to provide investors the opportunity to potentially benefit from market declines in the value of North American Marijuana equities.

Key Features

• Diversification. Typically, the variance of return is expected to be greater in shorting individual names than a diversified basket of stocks. Theoretically, this would reduce concentration risk and the overall costs of shorting since HMJI is likely to be less negatively impacted by margin calls (i.e. short squeezes) or high borrow costs on individual names
• No Margin. Investors do not need a margin account to use HMJI to take an inverse position on Marijuana Equities. As a result, the risk of HMJI is limited to the capital invested. By directly shorting a stock, investors can take on risk that exceeds 100% of the initial investment
• ETF Liquidity. HMJI can be bought and sold on the Toronto Stock Exchange throughout the normal trading day, using a brokerage account
• Used as Hedge. HMJI could also be used by investors with long positions in Marijuana Equities to hedge out daily or shortterm market risk on their holdings

Investment Objective

HMJI is designed to provide daily investment results, before fees, expenses, distributions, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, that endeavour to correspond to the single inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the North American MOC Marijuana Index (TR). The Inverse ETF does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective over a period of time greater than one day.

In order to achieve its investment objective, the Inverse ETF may invest in equity securities, interest bearing accounts and T-Bills and/or other financial instruments, including derivatives.

Important Risk Considerations

HMJI is very different from most other exchange-traded funds, and is permitted to use strategies generally prohibited by conventional mutual funds. While such strategies will only be used in accordance with the investment objective and strategy of the ETF, during certain market conditions they may accelerate the risk that an investment in the Units of the ETF decreases in value.

HMJI, before fees and expenses, does not and should not be expected to return the inverse (e.g. -100%) of the return of its Underlying Index over any period of time other than daily.

The returns of HMJI over periods longer than one day will, under most market conditions, be in the opposite direction from the performance of its Underlying Index for the same period. However, the deviation of returns of HMJI from the inverse performance of its Underlying Index can be expected to become more pronounced as the volatility of HMJI’s Underlying Index, and/or the period of time increases.

Hedging costs charged to an ETF reduce the value of the forward price payable to that ETF. Due to the high cost of borrowing the securities of marijuana companies, the hedging costs charged to HMJI and indirectly borne by Unitholders are anticipated to be material.

Although the hedging costs of HMJI are assessed on a monthly basis to reflect the current market conditions, these hedging costs are expected to materially reduce the daily returns of HMJI to Unitholders and to materially impair the ability of HMJI to meet its investment objectives. Currently, Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (the “Manager”) anticipates that, in respect of HMJI, based on existing market conditions, the hedging costs charged to HMJI and indirectly borne by Unitholders will be between 15.00% and 35.00% per annum of the aggregate notional exposure of HMJI’s Forward Documents. The hedging costs may increase beyond this range.

Although the Manager does not, as of the date of this prospectus, anticipate suspending subscriptions for new Units, it is possible that due to a Counterparty’s difficulties and costs associated with shorting the securities of constituent issuers, including the potential inability of a Counterparty to borrow securities of constituent issuers in order to “short” such issuers, HMJI will be subject to the risk that one or more Counterparties could refuse to increase the ETF’s existing notional exposure under the current Forward Documents. If the ETF cannot increase its notional exposure under the Forward Documents, the Manager will accordingly suspend new subscriptions for Units of HMJI until such time as the Manager can increase the notional exposure under the Forward Documents. During a period of suspended subscriptions, investors should note that Units of HMJI are expected to trade at a premium or substantial premium to NAV. In such cases, investors are strongly discouraged from purchasing Units of HMJI on a stock exchange. Any suspension of subscriptions will be announced by press release and on the Manager’s website. The suspension of subscriptions, if any, will not affect the ability of existing Unitholders to sell their Units in the secondary market at a price reflective of the NAV per Unit. See “Significant Hedging Cost Risk and Risk of Suspended Subscriptions (HMJI)” in the prospectus.

Investors should read the prospectus to understand the risks, and monitor their investments in the ETF at least daily.
