Performance of less than one year is cumulative. You cannot invest directly in an index.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance would have been lower without fee waivers in effect. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For the most recent month-end performance, please call 1-866-704-OVLS.

Overlay Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Total Returns are calculated using the daily 4:00pm EST net asset value (NAV). Market price returns reflect the midpoint of the bid/ask spread as of the close of trading on the exchange where Fund shares are listed. Market price returns do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

Past performance is no indication of future results. Inherent in any investment is the potential for loss. Fees and other costs would be incurred by an investor in order to implement the strategy discussed, which would reduce potential returns. Before decided whether to invest in the strategy discussed, prospective investors should carefully consider the risk factors associated with investing, which may cause investors to lose money. Risk factors associated with this strategy include put option risk, equity risk and implied volatility risk.

Risk Factors: The Fund invests in options that derive their performance from the performance of the S&P 500 Index. Selling (writing) and buying options are speculative activities and entail greater than ordinary investment risks. The Fund’s use of put options can lead to losses because of adverse movements in the price or value of the underlying asset, which may be magnified by certain features of the options. When selling a put option, the Fund will receive a premium; however, this premium may not be enough to offset a loss incurred by the Fund if the price of the underlying asset is below the strike price by an amount equal to or greater than the premium. Purchased put options may expire worthless and the Fund would lose the premium it paid for the option. The Fund may lose significantly more than the premiums it receives in highly volatile market conditions.

The Fund will invest in short term put options which are financial derivatives that give buyers the right, but not the obligation, to sell (put) an underlying asset at an agreed-upon price and date.  The Fund’s use of options may reduce the Fund’s ability to profit from increases in the value of the underlying asset.  The Fund could experience a loss or increased volatility if its derivatives do not perform as anticipated or are not correlated with the performance of their underlying asset or if the Fund is unable to purchase or liquidate a position.

The Fund was recently organized and has no operating history. As a result, investors have a limited track record on which to base their investment decision.  Investments involve risk including the possible loss of principal.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Overlay Shares ETF carefully before investing.

Read the prospectus carefully before investing.
