SUMMARY

Unsplashed background img 1

EKAR tracks the Innovation Labs Next Generation Vehicles Index, which is comprised of a basket of global stocks that have exposure to the theme of electric and selfdriving/autonomous vehicles. Over the next decade, auto industry experts expect a dramatic production shift away from light vehicles powered by internal combustion engines to those propelled by electric batteries. Meanwhile, the world’s adoption of autonomous vehicles is being supported by a growing trend toward shared mobility, technological advancements and an evolving regulatory environment. To give this basket a more defined framework, stocks are placed in one of four custom stakeholder categories in terms of how they relate to the theme:

Battery Producers: Companies that mine or produce materials, chemicals, and components that are used in the production of batteries.

Manufacturers (OEMs): Original Equipment Companies that design, manufacture and/or distribute new energy vehicles (NEVs) and autonomously driven vehicles (ADVs).

Suppliers: Companies that produce or distribute parts and components used in NEVs and ADVs. This may include but not limited to thermal management (heating/cooling) systems & drive-train elements (other than batteries).

Semiconductors & Software: Companies that produce semis & software used in NEVs and ADVs including but not limited to advanced driver-assistance systems, light detection & ranging and infotainment. Companies that develop software necessary for sensing, mapping and providing driving policy within NEVs and ADVs.

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 the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the original cost. Returns for periods of less than one year are not annualized. One cannot invest directly in an index. Returns are determined based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00pm Eastern time, when the NAV is typically calculated. Market returns does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

*Distribution Yield is the annual yield an investor would receive if the most recent distribution remained the same going forward. The yield represents a single distribution from the fund and does not represent total return to the fund. The distribution yield is calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution and dividing it by the most recent NAV.

**30-Day SEC Yield is a standard yield calculation developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that allows for fairer comparisons among bond funds. It is based on the most recent month end. This figure reflects the interest earned during the period after deducting the Fund’s expenses for the period.

Market Price: The current price at which shares are bought and sold. Market returns are based upon the midpoint or the last bid/ask spread at 4:00pm Eastern time.

NAV: The dollar value of a single share, based on the value of the underlying assets of the fund minus its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. Calculated at the end of each business day.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. International investments may also involve risk from unfavorable fluctuations in currency values, differences in generally accepted accounting principles, and from economic or political instability. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. Narrowly focused investments and investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. There is no guarantee the fund will achieve its stated objective.

[specific to KOIN] Currently, there are few public companies for which Blockchain technology represents an attributable and significant revenue stream, and companies eligible for inclusion in the index may have minimal ties to blockchain. In addition: cryptographic keys necessary to transact on a blockchain may be subject to theft, loss, or destruction; competing platforms and technologies may be developed that consumers use instead of blockchain; that companies that use blockchain technology may be subject to cybersecurity risk, and that such companies may not be able to develop applications or may not be able to capitalize on them; that there may be a lack of liquid markets and possible manipulation of blockchain-based assets; that there may be risks posed by the lack of regulation in this space; that blockchain systems built using third party products may be subject to technical defects or vulnerabilities beyond a company's control; and that blockchain is a new and untested technology which may never be implemented on a scale that provides identifiable benefits.

[specific to EKAR] Next Generation Vehicles are a relatively new development and there can be no assurance that they will be widely adopted by the general public. Companies may be subject to risks related to rapid changes in technology, worldwide competition, rapid obsolescence of products and services, loss of patent protections, evolving industry standards and frequent new product production, and changes in business cycle and government regulation. The fund will be subject to the risks of its underlying holdings, that may include, battery producers, mining companies, producers or distributors of parts and components, software, semiconductors, that the technologies may not succeed.

Shares are bought and sold at market price not net asset value (NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00pm Eastern time when the NAV is typically calculated and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
