The Guggenheim/Beacon Spin-Off ETF (the “Fund”) seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the Beacon Spin-off Index (the “Spin-off Index” or “Index”). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stock, American depositary receipts ("ADRs") and master limited partnerships ("MLPs") that comprise the Index. Guggenheim Advisors, LLC (the “Investment Adviser”) seeks a correlation over time of 0.95 or better between the Fund’s performance and the performance of the Index. A figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation. The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, seeks to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Spin-off Index. The Spin-off Index is comprised of approximately 40 stocks selected, based on investment and other criteria, from a broad universe of U.S.-traded stocks, ADRs and MLPs. The universe of companies eligible for inclusion in the Index includes companies that have been spun-off within the past two years (but not more recently than six months prior to the applicable rebalancing date), without limitations on market capitalization (including micro-cap securities), but which are primarily small- and mid-cap companies with capitalizations under $10 billion. Beacon Indexes LLC (“Beacon” or the “Index Provider”) defines a spin-off company as any company resulting from either of the following events: a spin-off distribution of stock of a subsidiary company by its parent company to parent company shareholders or equity “carve-outs” or “partial initial public offerings” in which a parent company sells a percentage of the equity of a subsidiary to public shareholders.
