SOCIAL MEDIA DISCLOSURES (Event Shares)

Important Information:

Investors should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. For a prospectus with this and other information about the Funds, please call 1-877-539-1510 or visit our website at www.EventSharesFunds.com. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Funds distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC. Active Weighting Advisors, LLC serves as the investment advisor to the ETFs. Foreside Fund Services, LLC is not affiliated with Active Weighting Advisors, LLC.

Active Weighting Funds are the ETFs under the brand name EventShares.

Shares of the Funds are listed on a national securities exchange, the Bats BZX Exchange (“Exchange” or “Bats BZX”) and trade at market prices. The market price for each Fund’s shares may be different from its net asset value per share (the “NAV”). Shares of each Fund are not individually redeemable. Because fund shares trade at market prices rather than at net asset value (NAV), Fund shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (premium) or less than NAV (discount). Shares of the ETFs may be bought and sold throughout the day on the exchange through any brokerage account. Buying and selling shares of ETFs will result in brokerage commissions.

 

Funds Risk Disclosures:

 

Investing involves risk, including the loss of principal. There can be no assurance that the Funds will achieve their investment objectives. The Funds are actively managed ETFs that do not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index.

Investors in the Funds should be willing to accept a high degree of volatility in the price of the Fund’s shares and the possibility of significant losses. An investment in the Funds involve a substantial degree of risk and the Funds do not represent a complete investment program. The Prospectus contains important information about investing in the Funds. Please read the Prospectus carefully before you make any investment decisions.

 

The prices of equity securities rise and fall daily. These price movements may result from factors affecting individual issuers, industries or the stock market as a whole. There can be no assurance that an active trading market for the Fund’s shares will develop or be maintained. In
addition, equity markets tend to move in cycles which may cause stock prices to fall over short or extended periods of time.

Losing all or a portion of your investment is a risk of investing in the fund. Failure of the government to take positive action on policy and regulation themes, as well as other factors besides government action, may result in losses.

Unanticipated political or social developments may result in sudden and significant investment losses. Political and social developments that are anticipated but at odds with a Fund’s theme may result in sudden and significant investment losses.

Investing in securities of small and medium capitalization companies may involve greater volatility than investing in larger and more established companies because small and medium
capitalization companies can be subject to more abrupt or erratic share price changes than larger, more established companies.

The use of hedging and derivatives could produce disproportionate gains or losses and may increase costs. Short positions entered into by the Fund may involve higher risks and costs, and potential losses relating to such investments are not typically limited.

Definitions

Alpha - A measure of the active return on an investment, the performance of that investment compared with a suitable market index. Beta - Indicates whether the investment is more or less volatile than the market as a whole. Beta is a measure of the risk arising from exposure to general market movements as opposed to idiosyncratic factors. The Morningstar Mid Core Index measures the performance of mid-cap stocks where neither growth nor value characteristics predominate. The Morningstar Mid Core Index is the benchmark for the EventShares U.S. Legislative Opportunities ETF. Indexes do not reflect fees and expenses. Indexes are unmanaged and it is not possible to invest directly in an index.
