• Currency Hedged: All U.S. dollar exposure is currency hedged, making it a more currency efficient strategy for Canadian investors
• Potential Takeover Premiums: Companies about to experience corporate takeovers typically see their stock value increase

From its inception on November 28, 2017, through July 3, 2018, RBOT (which was then listed under the ticker symbol “ROBO”) tracked the ROBO® Global Robotics and Automation Index (the “ROBO Index”). Effective July 4, 2018, the ETF’s underlying index changed to become the Indxx Global Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Thematic Index (the “IGRAIT Index”). Had RBOT continued to track the ROBO Index, its performance would have likely varied from its current performance, either positively or negatively (possibly significantly), consistent with the performance of the ROBO Index versus the IGRAIT Index.
