The Funds have designated years of maturity ranging from 2013 to 2022 and will terminate on or about December 31st of their respective maturity year. In connection with such termination, each Fund will make a cash distribution to then-current shareholders of its net assets after making appropriate provisions for any liabilities of such Fund. The Funds do not seek to return any predetermined amount at maturity. In the final six months of operation, as the bonds held by a Fund mature, such Fund’s portfolio will transition to cash and cash equivalents, including without limitation U.S. Treasury Bills and investment-grade commercial paper, which may result in a lower yield than the yields of the bonds previously held by such Fund and/or prevailing yields for bonds in the market. Each Fund will terminate on or about its respective termination date without requiring additional approval by the Trust’s Board of Trustees (the “Board”) or Fund shareholders. The Board may change the termination date to an earlier or later date if a majority of the Board determines the change to be in the best interest of the Fund.

INDEX DESCRIPTION

BulletShares® USD Corporate Bond Indices are designed to represent the performance of a held-to-maturity portfolio of U.S. dollar denominated investment-grade corporate bonds with effective maturities in the same calendar year. The indices are unmanaged and it is not possible to invest directly in the indices. Read each Fund’s prospectus and summary prospectus (if available) carefully before investing.
